What happens when Teferi becomes a Lich, and consumes two suns?

WELL I'M FED UP WITH THAT QUESTION THAT HAS LINGERED, SO IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE BLACK SUMMER THAT WAS PROMISED I'VE MADE THIS DECK. WHY? BECAUSE PLAYTESTING, THAT'S WHY. THIS TIME WE WILL PAINT IT ALL BLACK.

If you lose with this deck, sorry, I apologize you're not playing it right. It is nigh impervious, even against blue white control decks at this point. (Joke. For you literalists out there.) I went to the Dallas Grand Prix, and played BWR (Mardu) Lich's Mastery, and found a few things bad. Red did literally nothing really, and the Glorious End sat in my hand on many occasions. I hated seeing Teferi, Hero of Dominaria pop up, and then I had a moment where I realized he was all the undead needed to commence killing the Gatewatch and all of Dominaria.

His insidious ultimate alone was more than enough to wipe out someone's entire board, and with Lich's Mastery in play and a few choice Renewed Faith moments and/or Sanguine Sacrament it is quite possible to make your opponent scoop on the spot. In addition, his card draw power and untapping of the lands...well, you know, when you see a winnner, KILL THE WINNER, RESURRECT IT AS AN UNDEAD MINION, AND USE THAT WINNER.

Lyra Dawnbringer is another winner you can bring out of your board if necessary as a sub in for Teferi if you want, or some other cards, I don't care. Knight of Malice is now in the board because it quite literally obliterates UW control decks. Adding four of those to your deck some place will win you more than a few matches against it. Some will question it; and rightly so, but let them question, and you'll just win.

Approach of the Second Sun still remains of course. Disallow is in there now, because fuck you, that's why. Search for Azcanta   is now in there because it is amazing card draw early on. Thaumatic Compass   is a fucking Maze of Ith with card draw and deck thinning potential; which every Lich concerned about their ass is in love with. Ipnu Rivulet is there for choice moments when someone does something weird and leaves you without a graveyard OR you just want to blow up Lich's Mastery for an odd reason or 10 billion. There are moments when destroying Lich's Mastery is beneficial because of Gideon of the Trials and his shiny "you can't lose" emblem. Just think about it, I'm not doing that for you right now. Liches ain't got time for that. polishes nails

Sanguine Sacrament is still there acting like a god damn Braingeyser.

LET THE BLACK SUMMER COMMENCE! SPREAD IT LIKE THE PLAGUE! CONSUME THE BLUE-WHITE MASSES AND SUPERFRIENDS. LAMBAST THEM WITH FERVENT GLEE! AND WHEN THEY SAY "WOW" POINT THEM HERE.

Warning: This deck takes TIME to play, and more importantly might end in DRAWS. Why? Because its hard to wield, and sometimes one match can go a long, long, time, lol.

Note: This is my fifth or sixth mastery deck, and after playing at a GP in playtesting, I'm certain this will for sure end up in the meta looking like this or somewhere close.

Update 1: Feedback and player testing is appreciated; I always love your stories just as much as my crazy ass experiences. Progress has no end...and devouring souls and Gatewatch with necromantic fervor is ...pleasing. Enjoy it.

Update 2: After doing more playtesting, Lyra Dawnbringer is moving to the main board. We're shelving one Disallow and one Vraska's Contempt to make room for her. She is potent, powerful, and insanely good. There could be an argument for three of her, but I'll leave this at two.

Update 3: Working on the mana issue a bit still; lands may need some adjusting. A minor issue. Also, some people are voting for Karn, Scion of Urza as an alternative to Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. Um, I would say "Por que no los dos?" to that; but its a tight squeeze. I'll add Karn to the maybeboard and let people decide.

Update 4: Thanks for making the deck #1 on TappedOut folks! This is my third or fourth number one and I hope you all find some ideas in it and enjoy it!

Update 5: Ok, I've made one change that I think really speeds this deck up greatly. I've added Karn, Scion of Urza and replaced Search for Azacanta entirely, and decreased the amount of Lich's Mastery in the deck by one. With both Teferi, Hero of Dominaria and Karn, Scion of Urza generating you card draw, it is nearly impossible to not hit your win-conditions. Since there are ten trillion of them, this should be fast. In addition to this, in a pinch, Karn can also generate you a token.

Update 6: Adjusting for more mana, CMC is pretty beefy, gotta up the mana inputs.
