DarkMagician : Allosaurus Shepherd is a broken magic card that would allow for a Masked Vandal or Mystic Repeal to target the Decree of Silence . (All those cards have been mentioned in posts in this thread, I didn't need to dig deep for that one.) That is why I haven't suggested a "counter all spells"-lock myself; Vexing Shusher , Prowling Serpopard , countering all spells is not good enough to deal with green/gruul. A lethal Banefire would work too, though the possibility of that would depend on life totals of course ;-)

Ramble one last shot here. I control Dosan the Falling Leaf and cast Cyclonic Rift . I then cast Decree of Silence followed by Solemnity . And to prevent Blast Zone we'll toss in an avacyn. I've seen this exact combo in a casual game minus the Avacyn. If you can get out of this one I'll admit defeat.

Could someone point me to a list or thread of lock win cons.

Example Decree of Silence and Solemnity

Example Isochron Scepter + Silence + Unwinding Clock

Mtg_Mega_Nerds that is true, but people could easily get rid of Nine Lives and i would immediately lose. I know there are other ways to lock into it, but i would rather have a perm lock such as Solemnity and Decree of Silence .

It is niche, but follow me here. Necropotence will always see play until removed. Forbid with near limitless cards for Buyback has a higher than average Card power ceiling. This ceiling is easier to achieve when one is not casting the majority of one's spells (One can win without casting a single spell after Zur is secured) except for interaction like Forbid. In terms of the deck strategy and purpose, it is effectively a surgical Decree of Silence : counter 1 spell a round that results in an opponent win or your loss.

is a tall order for Counter Magic in cEDH. It can easily cost more, cannot be cast at all with Gaddock Teeg and others out and/or the disallows flexible/efficient use of mana. Cryptic Command may not be active or relevant by the time one has the mana; additionally, its, unlike Forbid, ceiling is nearly identical to other Counter Magic but with a higher and more prohibitive CMC. At the moment, Forbid has played well with other spells because it is . Although, I have contemplated Delay and/or Miscast .

if you're not worried about recursion, Planar Void pairs with Energy Field stupidly well.

Solemnity also works well with Delaying Shield , Decree of Silence , and Force Bubble , although they aren't searchable by zur.

if you do want recursion, Hanna, Ship's Navigator and Hall of Heliod's Generosity are what I would recommend

Hey, +1!

I built an Orvar deck (Orvar the Rainbow) that I tried to make weaker by focused on bouncing and freezing... but it was too good for my group! I've been tuning it down since. Atm I'm going for a copycat build.

Definitely play 10-12 ramp that cost 2 or less... Ramping to 5 mana, playing Orvar and cloning lands is mvp.

In the end, I found cloning merfolk to be mostly useless. Scion of Oona seemed to me the best version of them all (it protects orvar/ is an early body to dump your hand into).

I play every 1CMC Twiddle that targets any permanent, which lets me clone lots of lands and then start drawing with Sphinxes, etc.

I really like Artisan of Forms because it can clone orvar if he gets targeted. Bouncers like AEthersnipe can also act as protection.

I was also thinking that Perplexing Chimera would be oppressive... or Knowledge Pool ... or Decree of Silence ... the ceiling seems pretty high with Orvar.

Cheers and good luck!

Decree of Silence would be a good choice if you're already running Solemnity
