Single Scoop: Azorius Palcatraz (Standard, Magic Arena)


Its time to honor the honor the hero of standard, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria. With Teferi rotating soon, I had to make some more memories. What better way than to make a control/prison deck? 

Gameplan

We still get to play our typical control gameplan but.....we added Rule of Law. Of course, there will be games where we could potentially lock ourselves out but more often than not, this will be in our favor as we play a ton of counterspells like Absorb and Dovin's Veto.

This card and Teferi, Time Raveler will make our opponents' lives feel very much like a prison as they won't do anything on our turn and they can only do one thing on theirs. How we'll usually win is through Ugin, the Ineffable and other planeswalkers as we beat them with a 2/2 token and sit behind countermagic. We also added Clear the Mind in case we need to reload. 

$ 0.00 $ 0.00

We also have wonderful cards like Fall of the Thran to reaaaaaaaaally add to the prison feel as we'll try to slam this down and immediately send it back to our hand so nobody gets their lands back. Where we're going?....we won't need lands! We'll have planeswalkers.

Conclusion

With Teferi almost leaving, I felt it was only appropriate that I make a few videos to honor him and this was definitely a blast. Are there more efficient ways to win? Yes. Do we care? Nope! If you've got the wildcards, you can definitely take this for a spin. Have fun assembling the lock and be ready for opponents to all of a sudden go AFK *Insert Winky Face*.

 See you at the next one!
