You (herafter referred to as "The Player"), by viewing this grouping of Magic: The Gathering Trading Cards (hereafter referred to as the "deck") agree to the following conditions: 1) That if you like the deck you will "+1" the deck (see section 5-C "+1ing a deck"); and 2) That if you have any advice that you will leave a comment on this deck (see section 10-A "Leaving Helpful Comments").The point of this deck is to defeat all of the opponents in a game of Magic: the Gathering (hereafter referred to as "magic") by taxing them out, then hitting them late game with some very large creatures.

Oloro's Tax Plan

As the player, it is your duty to uphold Oloro's Tax Plan to its fullest extent. Use of the following cards are permitted in taxing the opponent: Land Tax, Nether Void, AEther Barrier , Invoke Prejudice , Overburden, and Aura of Silence.

For wealthier members of Ravnica, additional taxes are levied. These taxes, most notably the Rhystic Study tax allow the player to choose whether to pay up in mana or card advantage.

Failure for comply leaves one subject to the many Counterspells at your disposal. If a subject is deemed too dangerous to allow on the streets, they will become the subject to a Detention Sphere or put behind the castle Portcullis.

It is not unlikely that offenders may try to get violent with you, so make use of your various "pillow fort" enchantment spells. You have at your call a Windborn Muse trained in using Propaganda. If all else fails, activate your Sphere of Safety until you can throw them in our patented Mana Vortex.



He's back!

Taxmaster is back, and now Oloro decides to take up the role of most-hatred general in the game!

It's so easy, he just sits back and watches as you lose your friends!

Can't Wait to try this out. +1 Torpor Orb is very effective in these decks.

Codex Shredder stops tutors to top of deck entirely and is seldom noticed until the damage has been done,

The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale if one can acquire it for sup-ah taxes?(Most likely using the entirety of one tax returns to get it)

If I could afford one, I'd definitely buy one. Hell, I'd buy like five.

If you are unable to afford a Tabernacle, you might consider running Pendrell Mists instead. Vile Consumption is another similar effect, but it taxes life instead.

I have a copy of Pendrell Mists, but I find it too slow for my tastes. The beauty of the tabernacle is that it only costs your land drop for a turn.

I totally get that. It's simply an option that I wasn't sure you were aware of.

Drownyard Temple works neatly with Mana Vortex might be something to consider

Had a look at your deck and find it very much to my liking of the style of play where u make your opponents suffer.

im building a lock down deck with Zur, the enchanter if you could give me some advice would be great.

Looks interesting in general...What is your experience with cards that tax specific card types or plays?

I had more cards like that in my Augustin's $t4ks (4000$ Solution/Stax) too, but after some tests came to the conclusion that cards, which tax a broader type of spells (noncreature, nonartifact, or even ALL spells) work much better. Also, if you have lots of cards that disable or remove creatures, taxing is more important for noncreatures and you want the tax cards cheap and fast. Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben all cost only 2 mana, which means you can drop them on turn one, if you have some acceleration available.

Extra acceleration would also be great in your deck, because you don't play mana mana artifacts. Signets and Talismans in your colours would be nice, if you can afford Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond and Mox Opal that would be even better. Coalition Relic is also cool because you can either tap it immediately or save one additional mana for next turn and it's coloured!

Dovin Baan seems like a good candidate for this deck!

Crucible of Worlds pairs wonderfully with Mana Vortex. That being out of the way, if any would be willing to provide suggestions for a deck of my creation, Please Hold i would be much obliged. the deck itself refused to link sadly.

Very nice +1 Maybe you could give me some help on mine? My First commander build. Banker

Hey I have a question about a potential maybeboard or sideboard card that can help fuel Sphere of Safety. If you had Arbiter of the Ideal then it would not only increase your enchantments that fuel your protection tax but can allow for free casting of cards. I know it is a bit high for its cost but with how much ramp you have in this deck in the early game it would seem like it wouldn't affect game play too much and it would allow for you to continue to play cards after you destroyed all of the land base in the current game with Mana Vortex. It is just a thought.

+1 just for the description. It made me laugh so hard. Deck does look good though.
