Lavinia, Azorius Renegade Discussion

It feels like having any number of cards above 3cmc means you need to run 23 lands at least, as a minimum. I think anything you can do to lower your curve will be a good thing. It feels like this deck really doenst want to be paying more than 2-3 mana for any card, so If you can avoid those high-costing cards that would be ideal. However, i'm not sure what Strike it Rich does to help your deck here? Also feels like Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is more of a sideboard card.

wallisface Thanks very much, I'm proud of this brew. I suppose it reflects 20 years of janky deckbuilding, but a little more focused than previous decks.

I wanted to build a deck that I hadn't seen a million times before. I do agree that for his CMC, you are probably right. I was thinking that Figure of Destiny might be a good swap, since he's cheap but has the potential to fly off the hook if given time..

I also realised that I'm at 58 cards, so I should likely put two more lands in. The other option is that I pull the two copies of Goldspan Dragon I own from their current deck, remove all four copies of Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir in favour of two copies of Lavinia, Azorius Renegade and two copies of Strike it Rich.

I'd love your thoughts, and once again thank you for your kind words and advice :-)

Neat concept. I’d suggest Drannith Magistrate and Lavinia, Azorius Renegade as extra copies of Teferi

Void Mirror is really harsh at MV 2; guessing a big reason for its inclusion is Tron hate but it obviously also stops free spells in the vein of Lavinia, Azorius Renegade

As you perhaps came to realize, Kaalia of the Vast does not cast the creatures she cheats into play. Cards will explicitly mention if a card is being cast ("play" equates to cast, except when referring to lands). Therefore Lavinia, Azorius Renegade will not be able to counter the cards.

So someone in our playgroup (all of us are pretty new to the format) is looking to build a optimized Kaalia of the Vast deck. And I already see it being a problem. Im looking for a deck that can compete and realized I pulled a Lavinia, Azorius Renegade . Do the cards dropped when Kaalia attacks get countered by Lavinia's since no mana is spent? Or since they being "put on the battle field attacking" they aren't cast and it doesn't trigger. Similarly are there any other commanders you suggest that may be better options as Lavinia is pretty limited? Thanks!!!

Kunoros, Hound of Athreos is among my favorite cards. I'd like it in three colors, though. I think another of my faves: Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , offers inspiration on adding blue.

Kunoros, Eternal Watchdog

Legendary Creature - Dog

Defender, Lifelink, Deathtouch

Nontoken permanents can't enter the battlefield from anywhere but the stack.

Players can't play cards from anywhere but their own hand.

Cards in the graveyard or in exile cannot leave their respective zones.


I think it's weirdly OP, but unsure how to really balance it. Like, in many games, this could just be an excellent defender, but if built around, it can easily destroy games, especially in this meta.
