Teferi, Hero of Dominaria Discussion
CoSM0 on UW Control
5 days ago
I assume there's a lot of budget decisions being made here but playing Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is a must for UW control. It's quite literally the reason that UW isn't on Lurrus right now and if you are in those two colors and are trying to play a control gameplan I think it's a mistake not to have at least 2 of him in your deck.

Sevelantis: Teferi, Master of Time can't go in a BW deck, and 5 mana for Teferi, Hero of Dominaria isn't too much in commander. i also wouldn't consider Dovin's Veto one of the most powerful counter spells in magic. better counter spells that come to mind that i don't see in this list include Force of Will , Force of Negation , Archmage's Charm , Absorb , Sinister Sabotage , Dissolve

Hello. I have been studying Blink Brago Control for few weeks and I have to tell that I probably have found my place in MTG - I need to build this deck. The job that you had done is so good.. I'm gonna create my deck based on yours. Why ? Because your deck is IMO lacking some essential cards and OFC an UPDATE. Yep... you really need an update. Im casual player, any feedback is very appreciated. So I encourage everybody who is reading this to a discussion.
card draw / card selection
Rhystic Study - Every blue commander should play this, why don't we try - gives consistent draw to get more cards..
Mystic Remora - more draw..
Esper Sentinel - kinda new card in magic - gets consistent draw
Dig Through Time - Powerful because of delve.
Luminous Broodmoth - Mass removal - even more profit! more blinking!
Soulherder - Every blink deck, please. This enables to get more blinking triggers and payoffs at the same time.
Disallow - extended counterspell...
Trickbind - counter triggers sometimes are gold worth.
Dovin's Veto - One of the most powerful counterspells in magic. Guesss what. It's Azorius colors ;)
Path to Exile - classic
Lightning Greaves - protect commander
Linvala, Shield of Sea Gate - lets sacrifice it anytime we need...
Thran Dynamo - IMO really underappreciated mana base card.
Teferi, Master of Time - Isn't this a must-play in an BW deck now?
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria - Isn't it too much mana?

Sorry for the late response, I have some family over for mother's day.
First, I'd like to say that I'm by no means an expert, and even if I was, I'd tell you to disregard my advice if it ever advises the removal of pet cards, shifts the deck towards a style you don't prefer, or otherwise contradicts your goals in any way. I can only ever speak from my own experiences, and yours can and should be different. Generally speaking, creatures that cost a lot of mana and are easy to remove tend to be weaker than those that cost less and/or have some built in protection or other added value. The ability to dodge removal like Vraska's Contempt and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is what let Carnage Tyrant warp an entire format while Ghalta, Primal Hunger really did not. The fact that you're considering 3 cards that grant hexproof or indestructible implies that removal is a serious issue in your meta, and after looking at the blue and orzhov decks, I would agree. This does mean that Xenagos, God of Revels is better than Ghalta since it packs its own protection. My suggestion to cut him comes from two different factors. One is that he's just shy of the Fierce Empath CMC requirement and the other is that he doesn't grant haste to all creatures simultaneously. I don't think he's bad though, and I particularly like him with annihilator Eldrazi. Still, if I resolve a Surge, I'd really like to win the game that turn, and an 18/18 haste alone can be shut down for a single mana. Going wide makes it harder for your opponents to answer your threats both because board wipes tend to be sorcery speed and because they typically get played in the main less than single-target removal anyway. This is why you see cards like Pathbreaker Ibex and Craterhoof Behemoth getting so expensive while their single-target counterparts fall behind. All that aside, I do like Soul of New Phyrexia and Archetype of Endurance for decks like this. If you're worried about not giving your opponents enough answers, just go with the Soul since it doesn't stop targeted exile.
If you're looking to play casually online, you could try something like Untap.in (free in-browser), Cockatrice (free download), or Tabletop Simulator (payed download with many other games). If you have a way to set up a webcam to record your board, you could also try to arrange a paper game on Discord or the like. Or, if you don't mind dropping money on digital cards, MTGO is an option.

Raugrin Triome could replace the bounce lands and as a bonus, it can be fetched or cycled. Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria would be very powerful additions to the deck as well if planeswalkers interest you at all. Vendilion Clique is a card I always enjoy.

Magic is a game of resource management, and Planeswalkers are by far the card type that upset the balance in resources between two players the most. Short of a counterspell, a planeswalker will always have an impact, because after resolving you can activate an ability before your opponent gets priority and a chance to response, even if your opponent has the Hero's Downfall in hand to deal with it. And your opponent has to deal with them, or they run away with the game, at least the ones who see constructed play. Creature decks have to waste attacks on them, effectively gaining their controllers a lot of life and tempo. It's like you're inviting a third player into the game, who will do nothing to oppose you, and nothing to help your opponent. It's not hard to see how that feels unfair, especially to the aggro deck that now needs to kill two players with just the resources available to kill one.
A planeswalker gains you life, casts you a spell every turn, at least once, even if it gets immediately removed. They have to be answered or they win the game on their own, even if it doesn't immediately looks like it. There's no other card type that so reliably has such a big impact on a game of magic. Having played aggro in Standard regularly during Teferi summer (when both Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Teferi, Time Raveler were legal), I understand exactly what people mean when they say they don't like planeswalkers.
However, that's exactly how they were designed. Planeswalkers are the main characters of the story, they are the gifted, supernaturally powered, magical eyes through which we view the in-game world. Planeswalkers create the magic story just by existing in a place they shouldn't, and exploring the conflicts that arise by upsetting the natural balances. No wonder they treat games of magic the same way. They are the rarest card type, it feels great to pull one from a booster pack. They bring a lot of positives to the magic franchise, even though they can feel unfair if they oppose you ingame. They have been a mainstay ever since their introduction in Lorwyn, opposing their existence feels like wasted energy at this point. But I do believe we need to keep the power level discussion going forever, because Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Oko, Thief of Crowns happen if we don't.
So focus on individual cards; you can point at bans, but there have been plenty of planeswalkers that haven't been broken or upsetting their format, just like every other card type.
