You're corret, Megabeast. A singular, resolved planeswlaker does present somewhat of an interesting challenge, however I've found through prudent play, you can still successfully outmaneuver a resolved Lili, or Nissa.

I do sorely miss planeswalker removal though. Anguished Unmaking is so good.

I'll let you know when I see one through the sea of aggro decks.

I've really enjoyed playing with a slightly tweaked iteration of your build, BounceBurnBuff. Control is my favored archetype, and this goes a long way toward helping me fulfill my "Nope, draw, go!" dreams.

I've made the following adjustments:

-2 Gideon's Reproach
-2 Spell Shrivel
+3 Broken Concentration

Also, you're running 6 creatures, not 5 mate.


Whoops! It's only 1 Insidious Will too, thanks.

No worries! Thanks for sharing your build, mate. It's very fun to play! How have fared against aggro thus far??

It's been easy enough against aggro, I've been testing this though to better success:

-1 Cataclysmic Hulk
-1 Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
-1 Blessed Alliance
+3 Aether Meltdown

Hitting and sticking to vehicles, particularly the Copter, Train and Cruiser, has been a pretty big swing in my favour in every game it's cropped up. Neutering Avacyn from swinging in control mirrors is also a plus.

My Azorius list is very close to your list Bounce, biggest difference is that I'm running both Imprisoned in the Moon just to answer resolved planeswalkers and a different mana base.

For the mana base (26 Lands) I recommend:

7 x Island
6 x Plains
2 x Prairie Stream
2 x Glacial Fortress
4 x Meandering River
3 x Aether Hub
2 x Westvale Abbey


This gives you 18 blue sources & 17 white sources as well as having the advantage vs other control decks thanks to the abbey or you can run whatever utility lands instead if you prefer.

I have my doubts. If you don't awaken, you stall the game into nothing... there basically is no other wincon besides an untouched Jace till ultimate.
But awaken has a major drawback: Kill-Spells set you behind on mana and a controlish deck like this doesn't enjoy that.

I'd love to be wrong, though. I love the awaken mechanic and my first duels deck was quite similar to this. It's just sad to see your opponent 2 for 1 you with every removal.

Preferred Pronoun Set: he/him/his/his/himself
My most sucessfull deck so far - Azorius True Tempo.
Idea: Deny ALL blockers, then attack with a bunch of non-evasive, but hard-hitting bodies.

Resourses I currently have: 100% Magic Origins block, 33% Shadows over Innistrad block.

UW TRUE TEMPO
1 x Kytheon, Hero of Akros
2 x Anoiter of Champions
3 x Expedition Envoy

3 x Consul's Lieutenant
3 x Dauntless River Marchal
4 x Topan Freeblade
2 x Harbinger of the Tides
4 x Grasp of the Hieromancer
2 x Disperse
2 x Declaration in Stone

1 x Frost Lynx
3 x Frost Lynx-ish Zombie 2/3 ETBT
3 x Grip of the Roil

2 x Kytheon's Irregulars

3 x Jwar Isle Avenger

10 x Plains
8 x Islands
2 x Glacial Fortress
2 x Evolving Wilds


Lots of things to potentially replace here - Freeblades, for example, are urging to be replaced by some good 3/1 creatures, and Avengers are better to leave if you have Curators of Mysteries. White Cartouche is also fitting. Disperse is the weakest card currently, so I am waiting for some Unsummon variant or maybe Censor/Essence Scatter. Also, Reflector Mage.
Tweaks may include 1of Hixus, Prison Warden, 1/2of Negate, 1/2of Reprisal, 4of Faerie Miscerant, 1/2of Selfless Spirit, 1of Avacyn...
