Yeah. I'm a jerk.
My friends, for now, and I decided to make legacy decks to compete in local tournaments.
So I went Stasis. Lol
So upset Gush is banned but oh well.
Any suggestions are welcome. Please keep in mind that some obvious cards are missing, like Force of Will as I cant afford them at the moment. So try to keep this semi-budget friendly.
more land if you need to hit your drop every turn your going to fail even with bounceand Leech Bonder works
June 15, 2012 8:57 a.m.
I would add green and Garruk Wildspeaker . I's a win con and does everything your lands could do. Also it would give you access to some good stuff.
June 15, 2012 12:29 p.m.
For now i would like to keep it Mono blue, but I do like the idea of splashing some green in there.
Maybe after more play testing ill decide.
June 15, 2012 10:28 p.m.
Ha. Looks like were both trying to be legacy jerks, but I am trying to raise their CMC, deck:lock-em-down-comment-1, and you have this cool stasis thing going on. You could throw in a few High Tide to get some extra mana out of those lands before you have to pull them out, or maybe even a Piracy to use their lands.
June 16, 2012 3:15 p.m.
Piracy looks like SO much fun! The look on thier faces when I spend there mana to play stasis. lawl.
I read the description of your deck, and I know how you feel. I made my stasis deck to be a jerk, and I'll tell you what, I'm loving being a jerk! This has to be one of my favorite decks right now.
June 16, 2012 4:52 p.m.
What about Sword of Feast and Famine so you can untap lands, might need to add a couple more creatures if you go that route.
June 18, 2012 8:24 p.m.
After some play testing I am considering going U/G for this. So Sword of Feast and Famine would be a awesome addition at that point.
June 19, 2012 12:16 a.m.
Its a slow, painful, and enjoyable mill....
once the stasis is in you sit and laugh.
This deck is not meant to win fast, its meant to sit and enjoy itself.
June 19, 2012 11:25 p.m.
This deck is almost as bitch as legacy land destruction..... almost. +1
June 20, 2012 12:43 p.m.
This is the most epic Trolling deck I've ever seen. Good job, dude :D
June 21, 2012 8:07 p.m.
Thanks. Among my friends I'm known for making annoying decks. This is my favorite deck to whip out. They see the sleeves and yell at me. lol
June 21, 2012 9:06 p.m.
Boo this man. +1
Big ups on using Forsaken City to make your opponent want to fire mind lasers at you.
June 22, 2012 4:23 p.m.
nice. highly annoying!. i dont see frozen aether in the main deck though?
June 22, 2012 7:58 p.m.
i dont QUITE know the usability, but u might wanna try this out if u have these..
most likely tezzeret can untap those and get u a free pay the stasis next turn, plus w/ the -5 is the killer.. if u ever need one.
just occurred me man, anyways, statis is nice =D Gj so far.. i wanna c this playing.
June 23, 2012 3:33 a.m.
Didn't realize I didn't have my Frozen AEther 's in there.
Played Emperor last night with this deck. After about 30min the other emperor conceded. I wasn't even emperor on my side.
Loving this deck moar and moar.
I would like to propose a challenge: Link your craziest version of stasis you can make. I want to see what kind of ideas people are brewing up.
June 23, 2012 9:37 p.m.
Well, ok, count me in. I'll try to make one I would play and link it here :D
June 24, 2012 6:42 a.m.
+1 for the "I think I'm going to go for slow win" and how infuriating this deck would be to play against.
June 24, 2012 3:48 p.m.
When I saw this and was trying to improve my Merfolk deck I went crazy with ideas! Thank you! I know have a Stasis Merfolk deck, check it out, maybe give me tips to make it better: deck:merfolk-invasion
June 28, 2012 8:13 a.m.
Don't need to. If he is unblocked just skip the next 15 turns and kill with him ;)
June 30, 2012 5:43 a.m.
Don't swing with him. lol Chronatog is there to make me "skip" having to pay for stasis or draw a card. If my opponent is on lock down, Chronatog just makes my job easier. His ability costs me a turn, but doesn't say I HAVE to swing, so he stays untapped.
On kinda the same note... Say I DO swing with Chronatog , and he's now tapped and not un-tapping due to stasis, is his ability still usable? I assume so but double checking.
June 30, 2012 8:59 a.m.
Yes, his ability is still usable even if he is tapped, so you could take a chunk out of them for shits and giggles
July 2, 2012 11:47 p.m.
Another thing to consider with Chronatog is just using his ability on their turn every turn and giving them infinite turns.
July 2, 2012 11:59 p.m.
The budget is why I went with this for my legacy deck.
And it ended up being so much fun too!
July 3, 2012 2:12 p.m.
July 15, 2012 5:53 p.m.
my friend runs Vedalken Mastermind to return stasis back to his hand right before his untap step
July 15, 2012 11:55 p.m.
Am I late to the stasis party?
I like to pull this one out as a evening finisher in multiplayer. Sooo much fun to end the night with.
July 16, 2012 3:55 a.m.
I do the same thing, but now I have to re-sleeve it everytime cause they learn what sleeves it's in and won't let me play it. lol
And I love the Firestorm idea. Might have to work that in some time.
July 16, 2012 4:49 p.m.
this looks so fun, I love running aggro decks but this looks like it'd be a refreshing change of pace. I'm not usually in to playing slower decks but this is...irresistible, I really want to build this IRL +1
July 21, 2012 10:30 p.m.
Best thing about this deck is that it's so cheap. so it's easy to build even if you just want to try it.
Beware though, your friends will only let you play it once.
I play this at FNM in between rounds against peoples standard deck and it has no problem winning.
July 22, 2012 11:24 a.m.
Tamiyo, the Moon Sage does look like it'd be crazy in this deck. You'd get massive draw power and be able to consistently return stasis to your hand if need be, or any card for that matter if they happen to be slick and are able destroy something.
July 22, 2012 9:28 p.m.
What a fun little deck to play! I have a friend with a similar deck, but out of fanciness, his deck has 250 cards in it, in hopes that he'd win via Battle of Wits .
July 24, 2012 1:06 a.m.
What about Venser's journal instead of spellbook I also had some Ideas but don't know if they are relevant.psycosis crawler for one let me know and I will tell you the others. not sure if I am missing the point but if you have cards in your hand why not have phycosis block anything that is thrown and maybe hit with him once or twice+1
July 24, 2012 8:39 a.m.
i have a stasis deck too check it out if you feel like deck:pacifist-stacisist.Also love your deck, fun combo with Chronatog think i maybe need to get me some, altough i gotta find my Kismet their laying around here somewhere. im using Elspeth, Knight-Errant as a win condition tough. tell me what you think
July 26, 2012 12:04 a.m.
what about Reliquary Tower ? in case you don't draw spellbook.
July 27, 2012 3:14 p.m.
Derp didn't realize that was already suggested. what about Jace, Memory Adept ? Draw cards and mill them a little faster if you need to. What would you take out for 2x of him?
July 27, 2012 11:52 p.m.
He works, but I play the deck around playing Stasis and then playing spells to lock down. I like to keep it simple, and adding other cards to get to win combos seems excessive to me. the deck works flawlessly as I have it, after playtesting a lot of course.
But I do love the suggestions, keep them coming.
July 30, 2012 9:50 p.m.
i don't know if this will be to expensive, although, Force of Will is the biggest BEEEEP when it comes to counterspells.
August 21, 2012 3:39 p.m.
Running about $70 right now, so I intentionally left them out; otherwise, yes, they would be in here. lol
August 21, 2012 4:35 p.m.
Breezybeard218! Congrats for this deck, another wincon very efective and budget ;) would be Black Vise , same effect as the rack but created for Statis LOL!
August 22, 2012 9:13 a.m.
August 30, 2012 2:07 p.m.
For a Vintage version of this deck, where Black Vise and Gush are not banned, what cards would you take out to put those in?
September 27, 2012 11:57 a.m.

I love using Capsize with the buyback cost so that they no longer have cards on the board as well... totally unnecessary but fun (and you'll eventually have the lands to pay for this 6-mana craziness)
January 2, 2013 6:26 p.m.
Never posted on here before, but had to comment on Stasis , one of my fave decks ever, so set up a profile just for you! First, piedok is absolutely right. I ran Stasis for a while and Vedalken Mastermind is the nuts. My kill card was Sigil of the Empty Throne . A 4/4 Angel every turn just for re-playing Stasis is no joke. Also, Muddle the Mixture tutors for both Stasis and Vedalken Mastermind . I understand wanting to stay all blue, but I found white was worth the compromise on mana as I had access to Enlightened Tutor to find Sigil of the Empty Throne , Frozen AEther , Stasis and the one-of Oblivion Ring . You probably already know this, but Vedalken Mastermind + Oblivion Ring = NO FRIENDS AT ALL! As for Force of Will , I'm missing those aswell, but Cryptic Command has sooo much synergy in here its as if it was made for it. Those arn't cheap either tho...
January 30, 2013 11:57 a.m.
January 30, 2013 12:15 p.m.
This is the deck I will use for all games to troll.
By the way Chronatog says you can use the ability once each turn, so you can use it then repeat on your opponent's turn and mill them... So fun.

if True-Name Nemesis wasn't a billon dollars I would suggest that
May 8, 2014 5:32 p.m.
if you want to be cute you can Hedron Crab then to death
May 8, 2014 5:38 p.m.
So like can you only lose to direct damage? or do you shut down RDW also?
June 2, 2014 6:03 a.m.
Howling Mine will give you the card advantage to sustain the stasis.
I have a similar stasis deck http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/stasis-control-28-04-14-1/
Bug dropped the Chronatog s to more usefull stuff

My deck is a mono blue Stasis-Landstill hybrid, using Hidden Strings to untap lands for fuel.
Check it out: Stay Still
July 9, 2014 7:32 a.m.
I happened to stumble upon this awesome take on Legacy Stasis in search of budget alternatives for a friend getting into legacy, and I must say it's pretty cool. I like the lock pieces and how efficient the lock engine is in comparison to the Ral Zarek engine. The lock being Stasis and Forsaken City I find is much more efficient. There is one problem that I have with this deck, and that is it's consistency. If you can afford to spend a bit of money on a few blue fetchlands I would add some Dig Through Times and Brainstorms. Regardless of budget though I would add Ponders. It's essential for pretty much every blue deck in legacy.
Anyways love the list +1.
