While an opponent is searching their library, they exile each card they find. You may play those cards for as long as they remain exiled, and you may spend mana as though it where mana of any colour to cast them.

Artatras on The Many-Faced God - [Primer]

1 day ago

Wow! Thank you so much for the kind words!

Suggestions are always more than welcome. I'm definitely not omniscient. In fact, I didn't even think about the almighty Mystic Remora , which is a card I play in a few other decks. It is definitely worth including due to its raw power level. I'm not sure if it's going to replace DC, as I kind of like the flexibility of being able to copy him from the graveyard in the late game. Phyrexian Arena is probably what I'll end up cutting. After all, the average CMC of the deck is low enough that I can afford DC over the Arena. On the same note, I'm considering Ad Nauseam as a way to refuel in the late game. It shouldn't hurt too much. When you say I can dodge Remora's cumulative upkeep by morphing Lazav before my turn begins, what do you actually mean?

Scorched Ruins is yet another awesome suggestion. I particularly like that it taps for because, as you said, it's the magic number for many of our combos. This makes it a lot better than Lotus Vale and Lotus Field . It's a risky play, considering the chance to get blown up by land destruction. However, I think it's worth the risk.

Herald of Leshrac does have a very nice synergy with Lazav, but unfortunately his 7 CMC is way too high for this build. After all, it's the same mana cost of Phage the Untouchable , which can technically kill an opponent with a single attack. However, for a more "casual" build, it's a very fun (for you) card to try out.

Speaking of different kind of builds, that's the reason why I'm not playing Dauthi Voidwalker and Opposition Agent . They are both extremely powerful cards that work particularly well at high power tables, but they would take the deck in a different direction from the one I've chosen. This build is all about killing opponents as fast and safely as possible. I don't really care about interacting with their game plans, because the base idea is "kill them before they can start doing their things". However, mine is definitely not the only way of playing Lazav. I can perfectly see a more staxy build work well with him, where you include lots of cheap hatebears and deny your opponents' resources. It will be less explosive, but viable nonetheless.

Thanks again for your suggestions! They'll make the deck a lot better!

Mox_Dookie thanks! Aside from the obvious like Opposition Agent and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled you can also combine it with Teferi's Puzzle Box to lock your opponents out of a hand, Thawing Glaciers also has a nice synergy with Maralen to allow you access to lands while tutoring for bombs. Dark Confidant also let’s you keep the card advantage.

Thanks for the response Prophet93. I actually intended to add in a Cling to Dust and Sign in Blood ( Night's Whisper if I can think of a third cut) when I get them this weekend for more card draw. Kaervek is underwhelming a lot of the times (kind of just a worse Massacre Girl honestly). It can probably be the cut for when I inevitably pick up an Opposition Agent . I will also likely be picking up War Room, though I find the colorless lands I already have to be a bit cumbersome. Definitely worth considering though.

Hey there! Awesome looking deck :) I love Paradoxical Outcome decks in vintage. Opposition Agent is an awesome card in the format, and its super cool to see it getting played.

If I could recommend anything, I would cut Lotus Petal for an additional Sensei's Divining Top because it synergizes so well with PO and Bolas's Citadel . I would also recommend cutting a land or two for Repeal 's, as they cycle for free if you have a mana rock, and really smooth out your draws when you are going off.

I have a deck of my own, check it out! I'm open to any and all suggestions:

Maralen of the Mornsong Why: Locks people into hands with Opposition Agent

Grave Pact Why : Took place of Death Cloud , allows for better interaction with the board as well as just more synergistic with the deck

Read the Bones and Sign in Blood why: best card draw I could find as I can't currently afforded a Necropotence

Hymn to Tourach Why: I've been looking for more instances of discard for the deck

@Profet93 as a side note some cards im looking at including into the deck here shortly after some conversations wit ha couple buddies in the play group are as follows

Mindslicer ---> cut Ill-Gotten Gains / cut Sadistic Hypnotist

Insidious Dreams -----> cut: Diabolic Intent or another tutor???

Sedgemoor Witch ----> cut: IDK, i like the card because it makes tokens(think Tavesh/Skullclamp/Smokestack)
