Quote from LeonSpiresMistvein Borderpost's alt cost for mana fixing without duel lands might work well.
I am kind of surprised you don't run a few tutors. I think it would help being able to grab the thing that would shut down a deck that is giving you problems. I know Mindlock Orb is intended to shut down Tutors but maybe add Lim-Dûl's Vault which doesn't "search" the library.
This deck is well built for what it does but seems like it would do better one v one rather them Multiplayer. I know it's very strongly control but still controlling 3 + people would be more challenging. I'm also not sure how liked this deck would be. Possibly wining you the game but it might lose you 3 + friends :p.
Quote from AsatasSo, Darksteel Reactor is an alibi, you don't plan to win... Ahem, dear Sir, who would ever want to play vs this deck? I hate Fun Killer Decks!
Quote from me »Telepathy I can definitely defend, this is the ultimate politics card for this type of deck. I can use and time my counterspells and tricks perfectly since I know exactly what everyone is holding and it is extremely difficult for other people to win when I have Telepathy in play. Everyone else can see when someone is starting to build up a dominant position so the table can just gang up on them. My board position is mostly about what I have in my hand so this deck can come off as pretty non-threatening. Telepathy also isn't something people want to waste spot removal on, by that point everyone has already seen what everyone else has so it is already too late to keep secrets. They tend to just moan and groan when I cast it and hope an Oblivion Stone gets blown up soon so they can be rid of it. I was skeptical when I put it in but it has proven to be among the best cards in this deck. Always happy to have it and my opponents always hate to see it.
Quote from Magic Online »What is fun? Whatever you want it to be!
Quote from DonaldNeeds more Telepathy. I've had to defend this card in policeman decks many times so I'll just quote myself.
Different deck but pretty much the same idea. I like to think of it as deputizing all my opponents. They get to act as mini policemen to make sure nobody wins (except me of course).

( N_S ) and his gimmick doktorcaligari have been banned for making malicious actions against the site.
Quote from DonaldIt's a bad card in groups with bad threat assessment because people don't know who the threat is so they just go after the first person to do something they don't like. In groups with good threat assessment people are probably going to go after the biggest threat at the table.
Quote from JivanmuktaThe problem is most players have terrible threat assessment. Telepathy is always that 1 card I never have a spot for. I'm mid-revamping the deck and actually trying to find a space for it.
Quote from DonaldAs a side note if you ever have 2 policemen decks in the same game...well I hope you have a lot of time on your hands.
Quote from GalspanicTry this deck + Barren Glory Combo + RWU Zedruu Turtle... it was awful.
Quote from GalspanicYou could just go the Mill route with Skelly. I've accidentally won before by Windfalling the hell out of people.
Quote from JivanmuktaI don't own a Time Spiral or Timetwister so I feel at a severe disadvantage to try and attempt that (I might pick up a Spiral eventually though if I have some extra cash) Thank you for that idea...in addition it would make BSZ that much better... I think the deck is going to become Oona regardless (I bought a foil one for my combo deck that I disassembled when it became boring). She is also one of my favorite u/b creatures and flavor means a lot to me. What other wheels are there that I may be not thinking of?
Quote from GalspanicDiminishing Returns is solid.
Wheel and Deal gets you there.
Time Reversal sucks less when you have 10 mana online.
In Azami I would use all those.
Quote from JivanmuktaCompletely forgot about Wheel and Deal, instant and cantrips is amazing. Is Diminishing good? That drawback has always scared me. I guess there is also that really expensive one with Entwine.
Quote from GalspanicThe Entwine is awful. Diminishing is actually really good. It costs 4 and doesn't exile itself. The 10 card cut is brutal, but if you can recycle your graveyard at all it will put you ahead. Tamiyo, Feldon's cane, Mnemonic Nexus are my favorites when I shift over to mill. With Leyline of the Void it's usually forcing people to exile 10 too... so you know, it all depends I guess.
Quote from DonaldI believe Tidal Control is the only card not available.
