Azor, the Lawbringer Discussion

Gidgetimer on Interaction between Teferi, Time Raveler …

"Any time they could cast a sorcery" is shorthand for "on their main phase when the stack is empty". It doesn't matter whether or not they could actually cast a sorcery. Vedalken Orrery does not negate Teferi, Time Raveler 's ability and Azor, the Lawbringer will not lock them out of artifacts, creatures, and enchantments when paired with Teferi.

So Teferi, Time Raveler states that opponents can only cast spells any time they could cast a sorcery, and Azor, the Lawbringer states that when it enters the battlefield opponents each opponent can't cast instant or sorcery spells on their next turn. My playgroup is debating the outcome of this interaction. My assumption is that this will prevent all opponents from being able to cast spells for a full turn, and if you add in a Conjurer's Closet you can lock them out for the rest of the game. Some others in my group think this will only affect and hard lock instant and sorcery spells. Any help on how this will play out? Thanks in advance! :)

Azor, the Lawbringer is a sphinx with a huge beard. That's pretty metal. Yep.

Another U/W option that's both budget and beginner-friendly is flyers. By including a critical mass of evasive creatures, you can soar right past blockers for the win. Some cards that synergize with such a plan include Watcher of the Spheres . Empyrean Eagle , Skycat Sovereign , Jubilant Skybonder , and Sephara, Sky's Blade . Then, you can choose to either go wide or go tall. Wide means add more token production like Midnight Haunting and Migratory Route . Tall means add more bombs like sphinx ( Azor, the Lawbringer , Isperia, Supreme Judge , Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign , etc.) or angels ( Angelic Arbiter , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Lyra Dawnbringer , etc.). Not all of the aforementioned cards are budget but it's easy enough to find cheaper alternatives. If you're playing with a casual (legacy) card pool, EDHREC can be a useful resource for finding cards that fit within an archetype. 60-card decks generally want to be faster than their EDH counterparts, but that really depends on how competitive your meta is.

Very spicy. May I recommend Wilderness Reclamation? It's a decent card, especially in control. It may not fit your theme the way you want it to, though, and I will acknowledge that. Also, would Azor, the Lawbringer be a good card here? It has a neat effect on Etb, and is basically a Sphinx's Revelation on a stick when it attacks.

Otherwise, I really like the list. I've been thinking of experimenting with Bant Control lately, and I really like the way this deck portrays that.

CaptainToll Oh thank you, this deck has pissed off so many opponents that they keep asking if im planning on playing it when ever we start a game.

Love your inclusion of Smothering Tithe and Azor, the Lawbringer, if i ever find smothering tide cheaper i will also include it.

You are right Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer can be slow, but has proven me quite helpful when someone with a massive creature plans on targeting me, also i kinda justify it's slowness to the fact that i try to make the game as slow as possible to begin with so i guess its fine, although if i find something better that i like i have no problem cutting Gwafa out.

Hey I love your Deck and I came to the conclusion to start my own Deck based upon yours. I will however include Smothering Tithe, Azor, the Lawbringer (flickered he locks opponents almost entirely from casting sorcerys), Aven Mindcensor, Hushbringer, Tocatli Honor Guard for some stuff. Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer for example seems to slow for my taste.
