Imposing Sovereign Discussion

Some thoughts:

1) You have of Voice of Resurgence , but very few ways to make full use of them. Typically you'd want loads of creatures - but you're only running 17, and only 1 other card makes tokens. So most of the time, the token left over from the Voice's death will be pretty small?? Surely to make full use of this, you want more ways to generate tokens to get your creature-count up ( Lingering Souls will help here)

2) I don't understand the point of the single Imposing Sovereign ... what is it there to achieve?

3) you shouldn't need 25 lands and a playset of Birds of Paradise ... you're gunna end up getting mana flooded too often.

4) why Faithless Looting ?? It only looks like it helps your 2 copies of Tasigur, the Golden Fang (a card i'm still not sure you should be running) - for a midrange deck you want to be getting lots of value and card-advantage - and looting kindof does the opposite.

This is really cool! I don’t play azorius at all but this deck looks like a lot of fun. I’ve also never heard of the 8x8 rule. Where does that come from?

Have you experimented with cards that have similar abilities to ones you’re using like Imposing Sovereign , Blind Obedience and Frozen AEther ? Kismet and Loxodon Gatekeeper have higher CMCs but they cover all the bases as far as what enters tapped. I would probably run one of them over Court Street Denizen since you’re only running about 13 white creatures. Ah wait... unless you have enough stuff that bounces creatures back then i guess my suggestion is a moot point.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV seems like a shoe-in to help Lavinia hold down your opponents. But may not work for you if you’re looking to have creatures with ETBs.

I only really noticed you have Sift for card draw. What else do you have? Cause I must have missed some.

Anyway, Azorious is not my specialty but I hope I sort of helped. Good luck! +1

More red/white hate:

Price of Glory

Aven Mindcensor

Loxodon Gatekeeper

Imposing Sovereign

Tectonic Instability

Stranglehold

Sulfuric Vortex

Blood Moon

Bedlam

Heat of Battle

Heat Stroke

Onslaught

I see you are already running some creatures like Leonin Arbiter that does what Stranglehold does, but thought i throw the suggestions out there anyway.

Another option for ramp which I'm sure you are well aware of is Smothering Tithe .

And i would personally run Vandalblast over Mogg Salvage unless it works well in your meta. Dont get me wrong it’s a sweet way to cheat cmc but it’s very contextual.

Maybe Assemble the Legion or Crescendo of War for funsies?!

At least replace it with Imposing Sovereign , it’s more cost-efficient, albeit more narrow relative. Also add tithe. It’s great ramp and cars advantage for a color that has little of either.
