You probably want Beguiler of Wills , Necroskitter Commandeer , Guile (if you have some counter spells), and Perplexing Chimera .

Capt_telnet on the Evil Azami that will get me banned from my lgs

2 months ago

Hello my dude, I also have an Azami list that everyone hates and can give you some advice.

If you want to win you are probably going to need one of these three cards: Dream Halls You have more cards than anyone else, so you get the most value out of it. Can also be used to cast Azami from the command zone. (It's like 20$), Mind Over Matter This goes infinite with Azami out for lab man win. Can also be used for mana generation, fun with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx ( It's about 20$), or Intruder Alarm The value here is completely insane, you draw buttloads of cards. (It's like 18$). None of them are cheap, but its hard to have a fast lab man win unless you get one of those out. If you want to go really nuts, Paradox Engine is also in this category of "cards that win you the game almost immediately" but it costs 50$ and you need to run mana rocks to make it work optimally.

As for your wizards, you might want to switch a few for better options. Timestream Navigator , Sower of Temptation , Galecaster Colossus are all great and under 2$. Inspired Sprite lets you draw 2 every time you cast a wizard. If your a real monster Beguiler of Wills is disgusting, and if you have Intruder Alarm out... well, you just take every creature as it enters the battlefield. Archaeomancer is also just really good. And Temporal Adept and Portal Mage seems right up your alley.

On the more expensive end you have cards like Patron Wizard Which makes grown men cry. Glen Elendra Archmage Which combos quite well with Sage of Fables or Metallic Mimic in play. Fatespinner which helps keep people from attacking you. Baral, Chief of Compliance can also help reduce the cost of your counter-spells.

You might want to upgrade your counter-spell list aswell, Negate , Abjure , Arcane Denial , and Forbid are some that are cheap and good.

Lastly, mana rocks. You definitely need some. Mana rocks are the only way your going to be able cast wizards and still have mana open to counter spells. The faster Azami hits the table the better, and shes costs 5. After playing Azami for years, I can tell you the primary reason I lose is not having mana fast enough (that and everyone ganging up on me for running hard control). I'm only running 8 mana rocks in my list if you count cost reducers, and I'm honestly thinking about pushing that number up to 10 or 11.

Here's a link to my list, maybe you'll see something there you like: Nerds. I can confirm that my playgroup hates it.

Where the hell are Naban, Dean of Iteration and Panharmonicon ?

Alongside Arcane Adaptation , I'd suggest also Xenograft for the same effect.

Lullmage Mentor is a must in a wizard deck, alongside Voidmage Prodigy for control purposes.

Izzet Chronarch , Salvager of Secrets and Archaeomancer rebuy your spells! Twice, with Panharmonicon and Naban !

Barrin, Master Wizard loves tokens, as you can sacrifice them to him and remove threats! Galecaster Colossus is maybe the strongest Wizard in tribal commander decks.

Beguiler of Wills loves of you have a high creature count.

Descendant of Soramaro almost lets you stack your deck on need.

Rayne, Academy Chancellor draws lots of cards.

Serendib Sorcerer saves you from tight spots and it's politic.

Yo! Ik zet mijn suggesties hier neer, kan ik makkelijker de kaarten linken enzo

-2x Cackling Counterpart deze kan je niet op turn 3 spelen op 1 van je creatures, wat volgens mij de grootste kracht is van deze kaart. plus je creatures zijn niet heel kopieerbaar - enige op wie je het écht wil casten (denk ik) is thief of sanity.

-4x Psychic Spiral erg duur, en er is geen manier om je eigen graveyard te vullen, waardoor het effect grotendeels wegvalt. Goedkopere mill lijkt me daarom beter. werkt ook niet samen met Cast Through Time

-4x Beguiler of Wills dit is geen creature-spam deck, waardoor ie een hoop kracht verliest. Is ook 5 mana, wat best veel is. Je kan haar er 1x instoppen omdat het een erg leuke kaart is. Maar ik denk dat je hier heel vaak van teleurgesteld raakt, omdat jeniet de beste creature van de tegenstander mee kan overnemen. Je hebt waarschijnlijk gemiddeld 2-4 creatures op het veld, en de 5+ power creatures zijn dan buiten bereik

-2x Dark Petition beetje overkill, vind Mastermind's Acquisition leuker. deze is ook 5 mana, en je hebt erg veel 5 mana kaarten al.

-2x Cast Through Time Je hoeft er geen 4 te hebben in principe. Je hebt genoeg manieren om je library door te zoeken voor deze kaart. Daarom zou ik zeggen dat je deze maximaal 1 of 2 keer er in stopt. 7 mana is erg veel, en het effect stacked niet.

-4x Swamp - dan heb je 24 landjes

goedkopere mill dan psychic spiral: Thought Scour instant speed, 1 mana, vervangt zichzelf door een kaart te drawn. En millt de opponent een beetje! Mind Sculpt , Glimpse the Unthinkable (wel dure kaart), Mind Funeral

kaarten uit graveyard roven: Rise of the Dark Realms , Beacon of Unrest , Mnemonic Betrayal

kaarten uit enemy's hand roven: Silent-Blade Oni

kaarten uit deck roven: Bribery wel een ernstig dure kaart, Talent of the Telepath werkt ook als mill kaart, naast het stelen van instants/sorceries

kaarten exilen en vanuit exile spelen: Praetor's Grasp , Nightveil Specter , Exotic Orchard helpt bij het casten van kaarten van de tegenstander, omdat je automatisch hun mana kan pakken, Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Psychic Intrusion

goedkopere manier om creatures in de graveyard te krijgen: Doom Blade en andere goedkope destroy kaarten

gewoon overnemen van andermans creatures: Control Magic , Soul Ransom , Evil Twin

Ik denk dat het het best werkt om het thema van de graveyard-stealing te combineren met het vullen van de opponent's graveyard door goedkope mill kaarten. .

Turn 1/2/3 kan je dan de graveyard vullen met Thought Scour , Mind Sculpt , Mind Funeral , Nightveil Specter , en turn 4+ kan je het gaan leegroven met Beacon of Unrest , Beguiler of Wills , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Animate Dead

Het voordeel hiervan is dat de goedkope mill kaarten ook lategame value hebben met Cast Through Time , dan is een mill-victory opeens ook een hele reëele optie.

Venser, Shaper Savant

Cryptic Command

Pact of Negation

Tidespout Tyrant

Vesuvan Doppelganger

Dramatic Reversal

Copy Enchantment

Estrid's Invocation seemed kind of anemic given how few legal targets it had, replaced with Copy Enchantment to hopefully have more good targets.

Replaced AEtherspouts with AEtherize for slightly more Mana efficiency.

Replaced It That Betrays with Tidespout Tyrant , without other ways to make opponents sacrifice permanents, It That Betrays just functions as a 12/12 beater.

Replaced Body Double with Vesuvan Doppelganger . My playgroup Has a LOT of exile effects and graveyard hate, so I couldn't find a consistent source of targets for Body Double.

Added Dramatic Reversal for the infinite combo with Isochron Scepter + Sensei's Divining Top (tap top, hold priority, cast reversal, repeat)

Replaced Dismiss With Cryptic Command

Top suggestions Hybrow thank you! Detection Tower is a great shout, we've got a Uril deck in our playgroup and any increased chance to remove Hexproof is welcome. I really like Beguiler of Wills and Pemmin's Aura looks super flexible.

I built an entire deck around stealing stuff with Merieke Ri Berit as the commander. It did draw a lot of attention, and I have kinda retired it. Because she is white, that isn't an option to offer, but there are a few cards in there that were my favorites.

Beguiler of Wills - lets you flat out take stuff, if you can get an untap ability, like Magewright's Stone or Pemmin's Aura you can pretty much take every creature in one fell swoop.

Detection Tower - not as good as Arcane Lighthouse but its good to have 2 options in a 100 card deck.

Treachery - definitely on the more expensive side, but is an option.

If you are going to lean into the stealing, I would recommend a couple lands with Strip Mine effects, or Ghost Quarter .. because a Homeward Path can really mess up those plans.
