Azami, Lady of Scrolls Discussion

That's a lot to cover.
I'd say that, first, you haven't picked a very active commander, not one that synergizes with any combo or has abilities useful for a finisher.
Rayne isn't fit for a Voltron deck, mainly for her lack of abilities useful in that regard. Also, mono blue isn't the best colour combination for Voltron either, so I'd skip that strategy completely.
Rayne is a good passive drawing engine, but remember: she triggers when something you control gets targeted by an opponent. This happens (usually) when something you control gets destroyed, exiled or debuffed. So this is the price you've got to really use her for her ability.
On the artifact side, you're definitely in a good colour, but I feel your commander isn't helping you with trying to pull off any combo.
That's why I'd suggest trying to look out for another commander. Here's a list of "cheap" ones money-wise (so no Urza, Lord High Artificer ):
- Emry, Lurker of the Loch : just come out, can create many nasty combos with artifacts. She herself is a little pricy right now, but she'll probably go down in price in some days.
- Naru Meha, Master Wizard : fun instant speed combo deck. You control the game and win on the stack in response at somebody else trying to win. More toward instants and less towards artifacts.
- Padeem, Consul of Innovation : geared towards artifacts, gives you protection for your pieces and is a draw engine. All around very solid.
- Muzzio, Visionary Architect : a commander that has to be protected, but that can dig out one (or multiple) pieces from the top of your library. Usually supported by Strionic Resonator or untap effects.
- Azami, Lady of Scrolls : a classic, usually wins by drawing the entire deck with Laboratory Maniac on the field, but can also be used a bit differently, drawing you all the pieces for a combo and then winning with it!

Without knowing the color identy of your deck or seeing your list it is very hard to help you but in blue I use these:
Rhystic Study obviously,
you can also use Kami of the Crescent Moon .
My friends also use these:
Hope that helps.

Why no Azami, Lady of Scrolls ? That way you can just Dread Return the Angel of Glory's Rise , which gets back Azami, Lady of Scrolls , Laboratory Maniac and a few more humans, and just tap Lab Man to draw, and if they respond, tap Azami to draw, and if they respond again, tap another human to respond, and so on, and so on, and so on....

Hey thanks for the upvote friend! When my buddy showed me Fire Covenant we both knew that it had to go in lol. When I saw Orcish Lumberjack I wasn't actually sure if it would be good or not because I don't run many forests but the first time I played him I had Crucible of Worlds out and I instantly fell in love with the lumberjack.
As far as Veil of Summer over Autumn's Veil , that is definitely the right call and thank you for pointing that out lol. As for adding both, I'd rather be able to Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast the extra turn card that snowballs Azami, Lady of Scrolls or countering the Ophidian Eye before it hits Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Also Vexing Shusher being on the board and giving me the option to politic has come in handy one a few occasions. So the four cards and the niche Boseiju, Who Shelters All to push my spells through is all I really need.

my Azami, Lady of Scrolls will miss her Paradox Engine . there were so many games where the board was filled with wizards that got tapped in response of the untap trigger of paradox engine to draw a bunch of cards till the main win-con showed up. it was so easy to dig deep in my deck that i can understand the banning... lol

This deck seems super cool. I'm making a Kess deck and so excited to play it as I've wanted to do a grixis deck for a long time. Do you think you could give me some advice or feedback on my deck? Any from someone playing Kess on a similar budget and without going infinite would be really appreciated, and I'd be interested in the reasoning for some of your choices like Azami, Lady of Scrolls and number/type of cantrips/counterspells.

thanks for updating the list! I definitely agree with moving Thrasios / Tymna into their own tier. I would also appreciate a Thrasios ban for a healthier Metagame.
With Tymna, the "centralizing mini-game" you mentioned isn't that problematic in my opinion, as the strategy of abusing the low creature count in cEDH is quite a common thing (looking at Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Najeela, the Blade-Blossom or even Tana, the Bloodsower ) and is actually contributing to the diversity of the format.
I would like to hint on the lack of the old Tier 1,5 category. To me there are some Commanders that just don't belong into the same tier. For example, a Niv-Mizzet Reborn + Food Chain Strategy with a consistent T3 win would absolutely rank up higher than a fairly inconsistent Godo, Bandit Warlord Strategy around Stax and Helm of the Host ... To me, that also counts for Teferi, Temporal Archmage , Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge , Tasigur, the Golden Fang or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder . Please consider to add that category again.
To conclude my comment I would like to recommend moving Azami, Lady of Scrolls from High Power into the Competitive Category. I think that Deck can compete with other Mono U Strategys (Baral, Kefnet - not being as strong as Teferi). In my lokal game store I played several times with Azami in the EDH-Tournament against multiple other cEDH-Decks like Breakfast Hulk, Blood Pod, Shimmer Zur, Gitrog... and I still have to lose a single game with it. While it's a very subjective impression, it just feels wrong to me to see it in Tier 3.
