Drannith Magistrate

Creature — Human Wizard

Your opponents can't cast spells from anywhere other than their hands.

If you need more sack outlets you could consider High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well. Goblin Bombardment is also a good one that is hard to remove (though easier than lands).

One thing you may also consider is cutting down on creatures if you are having too hard of a time getting Shivan. Would you rather get Drannith Magistrate or Shivan when you sac an egg? Drannith is a good card but may be getting in the way of your strategy.

Drannith Magistrate doesn't stop anything from resolving. It only prohibits spells from being cast. Therefore; it matters exactly when you Vialed in the Drannith Magistrate. If you did it in response to the cascade trigger, nothing can be cast from exile and Crashing Footfalls will not be cast. If you let the cascade trigger resolve, Crashing Footfalls has already been cast, and Drannith Magistrate will do nothing. Allowing the cards to be revealed means that you have let the cascade resolve. There is no point when you will know what the revealed card is and prevent it from being cast. Knowing what the deck is means you will know what they intend to cascade into, but once cards start getting revealed there can be no responses until the cascaded into spell is cast.

My opponent plays Violent Outburst intending to cascade into Crashing Footfalls. In response I use Aether Vial to put Drannith Magistrate onto the battlefield.

Can Crashing Footfalls resolve?

Usually, whenever I've seen Oloro played, his main win condition is a combo of some kind. I see you run a couple of the main pieces, but here are the ones to complete them:

Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top gives infinite lifegain, lets you draw your entire library, then you can zap your opponents with Aetherflux Reservoir until you win.

Maralen of the Mornsong + Opposition Agent is a soft lockdown combo that turns off player draws, makes them lose life while giving you additional card advantage.

I see that you run the Sanguine Bond + Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose combo in the deck already. If you want a redundant effect for Vito that still works with that combo, Exquisite Blood has the same effect on an enchantment for an increased mana cost.

Decree of Silence + Solemnity makes it so that your opponents can't cast anything without it just being countered infinitely. Sure, if they have ways to cast something from outside their hand, it can still be cast, but that's why I like having some cards like Drannith Magistrate or similar effects in there as well.

Dovescape + Guile is a hilariously broken combo to run as well. Counter everything, get dove tokens equal to the CMC of anything anyone casts.

Azorius also has access to a bunch of hard lock out combos. Knowledge Pool + Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Knowledge Pool + Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Omen Machine + Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , the list goes on.

Solemnity combos with quite a few cards, since it lets you abuse anything that would usually put counters onto a permanent or player. Force Bubble, Phyrexian Unlife, Decree of Silence, Celestial Convergence, Glacial Chasm, Dark Depths and Nine Lives all come to mind.

Esper is a fun color to play with if you like being the guy to repeatedly and often screw over the table. Oloro allows you to run any shell you really like, gain life even without taking him out of the command zone, and convert his own lifegain into card draw while draining your opponents. If you really want to up the archenemy factor, Sen Triplets is another Esper creature that loves to mess with anyone you're playing with.

If you run Drannith Magistrate then you definitely need Uba Mask its the soft lock decks like this dream of. Love the list!

Yeah I'm kinda surprised about the controversy

What Caerwyn said about her supposedly being "Too generically good". I don't see myself including her in many of my decks, if any. She is not Smothering Tithe. I don't think comparing her to Hullbreacher or Drannith Magistrate is appropriate, as they're going to come out and shut down the board much quicker due to their low cost.

What aholder7 said about ETBs needing more answers.

Yarok is a three-color commander, while Mommmy Norn is mono-white, which still lacks good draw (yes, BRO tried). As a commander she'll have problems keeping up with having enough protective cards available. To be fair though, while she lacks an explicit self-protection ability like hexproof, she is immune to a lot of creature- and enchantment-based removal, e.g. Amphin Mutineer and Grasp of Fate.

DrukenReaps it sounds like you've never played mono white stax before. Crippling the game from the command zone is a good thing? This as a commander single-handedly halves the amount of games you can play in a night, annoying your opponents in the process.

I've never played a game where Torpor Orb wasn't universally welcomed with groans from all players who didn't cast it. It's fun... once. Just once. See what happens and then disband the deck or be sternly lectured by the playgroup. Take it from someone who played Hokori, Dust Drinker and Lavinia, Azorius Renegade long ago with the same vibes '^^

cEDH players will probably think it's fine, the higher power your meta, the better your answers to a threat like this, or at least the better your ability to play around it. It's as much mana as Ad Nauseam after all. But at casual tables, this card screams very loudly: "DOUBLE MY FUN, NONE FOR YOU ALL" which is a sentiment I don't associate with white in the color pie, nor with a nice game of casual commander '^^

It really is on the same page as Hullbreacher, Opposition Agent, Narset, Parter of Veils, Notion Thief, Drannith Magistrate, Karn, the Great Creator and the like. It's going to punish opponents just for trying to play their deck, even without any other deckbuilding effort. It's at least as punishing as the old praetors, but for half the mana.

If you go against this deck, play blue and make sure you can Clone it, so that everybody is equally unhappy and all can learn from the terrible experience ;)
