If you're very much into keeping players from your stuff, try Kira, Great Glass-Spinner. This will definitely deter the targeted stuff anyway; the untargeted stuff is trickier to deal with but luckily also a lot less common. Maybe Shabraz, the Skyshark  Flip would also be fun in here. It actually goes infinite when combined with Drogskol Reaver. Enjoy your deck!

Hello NV_1980, Thank you for your input regarding my deck; I appreciate it. Although I would like to have Kira, Great Glass-Spinner as a backup for Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant, it may not be the best choice since Kira has the potential to counter my spells and abilities. I have yet to have a chance to play this deck, as it heavily relies on the opponent's actions. So, I am not sure if Kira will actually cause me problems. With that being said, I am adding Kira, Great Glass-Spinner to the maybeboard; since Kira, Great Glass-Spinner is a fantastic card, and I appreciate you pointing it out (I forgot this little ball of joy existed).

Nice deck. I'm toying with the idea of recommending Kira, Great Glass-Spinner for your list. On the one hand, it creates some redundancy for what Jin offers you. On the other hand, some of your abilities/spells are used to target your own permanents. Anxious to hear your thoughts.

Does Kira, Great Glass-Spinner work with lazav? I think that he becomes the target when the spell goes on the stack, so even if you transform him targeting Kira in response, i'm not sure she triggers.

I agree with multimedia that Spellskite is a good option.

Personally, I like Kira, Great Glass-Spinner the most, as it protects your whole board at a low mana cost.

Hope this helps!

When I think of Nagato, the card that comes to mind is K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth since he uses his life as a means for power. Reminds me of Nagato and how messed up his body ends up being. But being mono black wouldn't let you represent his other abilities effectively. I would use Jodah, Archmage Eternal since he has that "I can do anything" feel that Nagato has with all of his insane abilities.

As far as the attractive and repulsive forcers are concerned, I think of Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, Erayo, Soratami Ascendant  Flip Mass Manipulation, Perplexing Chimera, etc.

The summoning Pain can be represented by Tooth and Nail, Genesis Wave, and the like.

Absorbing chakra sounds like Mana Drain, Draining Whelk, Plasm Capture, and Spell Swindle.

Mind's Dilation could work for reading a person's mind. There's also Sen Triplets.

Living Death, Necromantic Selection, Ruinous Ultimatum, Eerie Ultimatum, and many other cards can represent his control over life and death.

This deck makes me chuckle. I love seeing Swans of Bryn Argoll get some play.

I'm not sure what your stance is on combos, but seeing the Swans I feel compelled to tell you about Chain of Plasma in case you hadn't heard of it. Target the Swans with it and make sure you have another card in hand for the initial discard then you're golden, you get to draw as many cards as you want as you keep copying CoP and targeting your Swans.

The combo conflicts with Kira, Great Glass-Spinner but that isn't always going to be on the board.

Another card to offer up for consideration is Brash Taunter, which I think could fit quite well in the deck. With your commander on the board the Taunter makes for an annoying blocker for an attacking player to deal with, it can add to the burn strategy by hitting opponents for damage equal to the largest creature on the board, having it out when you cast Blasphemous Act is always fun, and things can get pretty silly with Fiery Emancipation on the board.

Brash Taunter also combos with Chain of Plasma and Archmage Emeritus, with the Archmage drawing you a card each time you copy CoP so that you always have another card in hand to copy it.
