Thats cool, Man. congrats
After watching that entire video, I find it funny that Jim says the deck is terrible the entire time he is playing it. But goes 4-1
So are there any other changes you wold make?
Sinister Sabotage for negate and dive down?

Sure thing. I like flashing in an attacker that bounces something. And surveils for for free.Quote from A_E_I_Own_U »Why do you think that? He is much more of a heavy hitter, especially with the trample. He comes out faster and is a better lazav target for sure.
Also, this deck probably does not want a three cmc counter. Negate and disdainful stroke would be my choice.
Overall the deck looks pretty cool.
How many activations are you getting from Lazav?
Oh and if you dont want to go all in on vraska's Contempt then Murder may be a nice choice.
You could also add Arguel's Blood fast in the side for control matchups

Details please. Dawn of Hope seems painfully slow. Is this a main deck choice too?Quote from jdinflames »Since they've put in traditional ranked on mtga, I'm sure that bo1 ranked is going to be 100% rdw, so this will be my goto if I decide for quick games. I did enter my list into a Bo3 event and the few matches I ran against control I lost game 1, but won the matches. Dawn of Hope is where it's at, my friends.
Jan 29, 2019You could max out on Grace / DawnbringerPosted in: Deck Creation (Standard)
Or there is
- Vona, Butcher of Magan
- Basilica Bell-Haunt
- Seraph of the Scales
- Resplendent Angel
- The Haunt of Hightower
Or you could add Kaya, Orzhov Usurper if you havent already
- Vona, Butcher of Magan

Sure, Treasure map allows you to scry, draw cards, and flips into a land. You are probably safe to go to 24 land.Quote from thesedaiv »Your exact list. I was play testing it on tappedout.net and noticed I frequently had a ton of land extra.

Hello Thesedaiv, What does your list look like?Quote from thesedaiv »Would this deck run just as good with one less land and one more creature?
PS: I was play testing this deck on tapped out. It's REALLY fun. I just need to figure what to put as the last three side board cards for my meta.
Jan 27, 2019Hello Everyone,Posted in: Deck Creation (Standard)
For the first FNM of RNA, I brought the list in the first post to my LGS. And it is an expen$ive deck. With only four rounds, the turn out was smaller than usual because of SCG Indy.
Unfortunately I went 0-2 and threw in the towel. Losing to Naya RGW Big Dinosaurs and Rakdos Midrange. There were however mulligan issues in both matches.
Perhaps Orzhov Control is really only good at beating Gruul Aggro. Or maybe I am looking at the construction of the deck incorrectly. But it seems the concept of Orzhov control is a failed experiment. Sorry folks
Any comments and criticism are welcome
Thanks for the support.
