Solemnity

Enchantment

Players can't get counters.

Counters can't be put on artifacts, creatures, enchantments, or lands.

Finally, you have Decree of Silence, but not Solemnity?!? Instant add in this deck.

If you're dead set on Celestial Convergence, Axis of Mortality, Mirror Universe, or the much worse Soul Conduit are probably entirely essential to your gameplan. They are also searchable with your signature spell

Moat, Magus of the Moat, and Blazing Archon, Mystic Barrier and Ensnaring Bridge are also good ideas for your pillow fort. Ghostly Prison is nice, but these effects are always better when multiplied. Windborn Muse and Norn's Annex are also good ones.

Cosmic Intervention and similar spells are probably good ideas too.

Relic Barrier and Icy Manipulator are best friends with Winter Orb and Static Orb

Solemnity instakills

Ferropede?

Nyx-Fleece Ram is better than some of your walls, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun probably is too.

Dusk / Dawn is your best board wipe in my opinion. Also reanimates almost every card in your deck.

Renounce and Zuran Orb are good ideas to dodge mass removal or suddenly gain the life you need to win.

Add Reprieve. it is temporary, but it will allow you to dodge a counter, or you could use it to bounce your own about-to-be-countered spell back to your hand before the counter resolves.

Elixir of Immortality? might help against mill. not great though.

The One Ring costs life if you need it to draw, but pro everything is probably more than worth it, and the extra cards are likely to be as well.

Thanks for all the feedback Apollo_Paladin!

I might go with your suggestion on Grim Tutor as I have mythic wildcards available. I've been grinding games just to get the third Solemnity. As for the tapped lands, they are there mainly to enable the bargain cost of Ice Out and the temple ones for free scrying. I could see cutting some of them though for some MDF lands  Flip. Which now that I think about it, I am missing a card in this list, Rowan's Grim Search.

@Pabs4444 the specific combo that sparked my concern is Nine Lives with Solemnity.

So far its something that I have only seen on Arena but I haven't been to the "LGS" that supports Pioneer in awhile because its almost an hour drive away from me... more or less I am just afraid of driving an hour to be met with that combo going off by Turn 4 repeatedly and then driving back home another hour super salty lol.

I currently don't think its a "popular" deck people are playing in paper but I could be wrong... I'm willing to just take the "L" for an occasional bad matchup but if this combo or similar like Deification and Gideon of the Trials become rampant then I guess I will very reluctantly splash for .

Okay, so if you're specifically trying to outdo Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait, you're going to have to make sure that you're not being outdone by it's immense card draw & Ramp. Deep Gnome Terramancer, Archivist of Oghma, Esper Sentinel, Alms Collector, Monologue Tax, Smuggler's Share, Consecrated Sphinx, Faerie Mastermind & Ledger Shredder will help accomplish this. Black Market Connections, Scroll Rack, Sensei's Divining Top, Dark Confidant, Dark Tutelage & of course Necropotence are also great card draw options, but won't scale with whatever your opponents are doing. Tithe, Gift of Estates & Land Tax are generically great, but extra great in this context.

Consider Rule of Law, Arcane Laboratory & Archon of Emeria as well. Sanctum Prelate, Void Winnower & Chalice of the Void will also hit 'em with a big ole "NOPE" when adequately applied. Decree of Silence + Solemnity will do so as well.

Weird stuff like Deathgrip will also probably help you lock the game down, but it might not translate very well outside of trying to take down Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait lol. Depends on how heavy your group is, really.

Speaking of that, you really might just need more Counterspells or something! Stuff like Tale's End seems pretty good for your goal here. More Mana Rocks seems like a great idea here too. I'm sure you're buddy is running a bunch of traditional Ramp & Dorks, right? You absolutely must keep up, or you're gonna lose.

More Tutors will help you grease the wheels, too. They can get pretty expensive dollar-wise, but options like Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Intent & Wishclaw Talisman are very affordable right now.

Let me know how you feel about these suggestions! Cheers!

Hello! I went through your list looking for spots to upgrade, but I found almost none: congratulations, it is really optimized!

Still, I believe you might want to consider some of these cards to increase your engine:

Ramp: Cultivate and Llanowar Elves could be Starfield Mystic, Bear Umbra, Burgeoning or Exploration instead, to stick with the Enchantments theme.

Draw: Don't forget the other enchantresses (Satyr Enchanter, Verduran Enchantress). I would take out Hyena Umbra and Cartouche of Solidarity for them.

Tutors: Heliod's Pilgrim might be better than Moon-Blessed Cleric, since it puts the card in your hand.

Pillowfort: Raking Canopy is probably more effective to deflect fliers than Spider Umbra. Elephant Grass could take White Sun's Twilight's place, since the former does not blow your own field.

Evasion: You might want Unquestioned Authority for extra evasion. It might replace Aegis of the Gods. (In my experience, players' spells do not usually target other players.)

Hate pieces: Rest in Peace, Ground Seal, Solemnity, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience are some cards you might want to include.

Win conditions:

This is a good start, you have some really nice lifegain synergies going. It doesn't really seem like a card draw deck to me, though. It leans more towards the lifegain world of Aetherflux Reservoir than to the U/B world of card draw. There are a lot of black cards that exchange life for cards; if you want card draw, you should get a Graveborn Muse leave the Reservoir behind.

If you go the true lifegain route, you might add transmute effects for tutors, like Clutch of the Undercity or Dimir House Guard. And another good wincon could be Celestial Convergence + Solemnity. And Test of Endurance. Though those will require more counters/protection than you have right now.

I have learned from experience that strategies that ping your opponents for one or two life every turn get you killed very quickly, because they make you stand out even when you're doing very little. So things like Drana's Emissary are kinda dangerous.

In that same vein, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose will draw hate. It's Sanguine Bond on a stick, and when people see half of the Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood combo, they shoot it immediately.

One final bit of overarching advice -- since this is a 3-color deck, I suggest staying away from cards that require a lot of one kind of mana. Particularly lots of black mana, like Underworld Dreams or Peer into the Abyss, since this deck is heavily U/W right now.

Okay, now some slightly more nitpicky things about card choices:

  • Since the Mages only seem to fetch mana rocks at this point, might you switch them out with myrs? Like Alloy Myr.

  • I'd replace Folio of Fancies with Temple Bell, personally, because I like having to spend less mana per draw.

  • Serra Avatar might be better than Celestial Force. But also I just really like Serra Avatar.

Again, this is quite good, just needs a bit of focusing towards the endgame. All the nitty-gritty of the mana curve and stuff you'll work out in playtesting, and what you have so far is workable.
