Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Discussion

Jefello on Yeva Draw-Grow (Budget)

So, i've assembled the deck with some small changes (my pod has a lot, A LOT OF HATE so basically i needed to + wrap in vigor and sylvan safekeeper) but the deck is amazing. I don't win every game, after all i'm not playing a tier 1 deck on a competitive level but my pod has a good Power Level overall. But on every single game i've been treated as a "thread" every time. Thanks for the deck man, not only i've had tons o'fun but it inspired me on building a Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage but instead of combos, you lock the game (infinite turns with Magistrate's Scepter or locks with Lavinia, Azorius Renegade / Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir + Knowledge Pool .

Some suggestions:

For wincons you can always Craterhoof Behemoth , if you don't like that card try, End-Raze Forerunners , Pathbreaker Ibex , or Triumph of the Hordes . Gift of Doom is spicy, but probably not a good card. If you run one more ramp spell, you can probably afford to run 36-37 lands.

@IsThisWolfe Hi there, Thanks for the comment!

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir : Is indeed too mana intensive + and at that cost you want to play key cards that either just lock out or shut down entire strategies or play multiple cards that add up to 5cmc and have more efficient hate as this could potentially lose you games as well because no one can respond anymore...

Teferi, Time Raveler : Baby Teferi is possible but with how most strategies work people can get around this very easily while one spell per turn for example would shut down decks far more efficiently and can't be attacked into as easily as walkers.

For example, the new one that has been spoiled at 1 Mana (if you run a lot more counter magic it could justify the baby Jace but still no one can respond ti anything anymore)

@ Limejuice Hey there man! thanks for the comment as well!

Nature's Will is a card I've toyed with before and played in najeela as well... it's a great card that synergies really well with orbs and can generate multiple triggers if multiple opponents are open for attacks. But without the other lock cards it ends up being a dead card draw at any stage of the game hence why i don't consider it. I'm not looking to combo of with orb-will for example , I'd rather play one card and have people struggle and delayed a turn and next turn play 2 more hate cards or so and just shut down entire strategies without these cards having to be dependant on one another...

Ulvenwald Tracker is great at dork heavy meta and a good meta call if you face a lot of those. but a bit less reliable in blind meta and tournaments. Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Dream Tides and Cursed Totem work as well but 2/3 here would also slow us down too much to be effective! Jitte could be good but also requires it sticking haven't tried it but if it works you and nets you games easier of dork reliant decks then consider it a good flex slot!

First off I really love this list, I have built some Stax decks in the past but have never really played them much as my playgroup’s decks are around 75%. I do have a question though; other then the triple U cost is there any particular reason(s) you don’t run Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir or Teferi, Time Raveler ? I usually throw him in any deck with blue I have.

Okay, better than my previous deck:

Omniscience (Mythic Rare Enchantment), Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (Rare Creature, but creature's don't count for rarity), Teferi, Time Raveler (Rare Planeswalker), and Merchant Scroll (Common Sorcery)

In deck: Firemind's Foresight (to be fetched with Merchant Scroll ) which can fetch Mystical Tutor , Trickbind (To stop abilities that the teferis don't stop), and Archmage's Charm . This will let you put Enter the Infinite . This lets you play any cantrip, such as Opt , for the last card Beacon of Tomorrows , shuffling it into your deck, Reliquary Tower as your land for turn, and holding up effectively 100 counterspells and answers and removal, as you play Beacon of Tomorrows , uncounterably, over and over, until your ten turns are done.

Once that is done, use an effect like God-Pharaoh's Statue to end the game.
