Lavinia DPS



  • So after looking at Lavinia, Azorius Renegade some more, I realized that the card is even more absurd than I originally imagined. If you can manage to drop it turn 1 against Workshops as a Storm player, they can't Sphere you turn 1, meaning you get another free turn to kill them! The card also says your blue opponent cant cast Mental Misstep for its alternate cost (they need to pay mana), the cant cast Force of Will or Mindbreak Trap for their alternate costs, they need to pay 5 and 4 mana respectively and only if they have that many lands in play! Allow me to present my take on Lavinia Dark Petition Storm, the deck that I feel breaks Lavinia completely:

    Mana (29):
    3 Polluted Delta
    3 Flooded Strand
    2 Underground Sea
    2 Tundra
    1 Swamp
    1 Island
    Tolarian Academy
    Black Lotus
    Mana Crypt
    Mana Vault
    Sol Ring
    Lotus Petal
    Mox Sapphire
    Mox Jet
    Mox Emerald
    Mox Ruby
    Mox Pearl
    4 Dark Ritual
    2 Cabal Ritual

    Disruption (7):
    4 Duress
    3 Lavinia, Azorius Renegade

    Draw/Tutor (18):
    4 Preordain
    4 Dark Petition
    2 Yawgmoth's Bargain
    Necropotence
    Brainstorm
    Gitaxian Probe
    Ponder
    Ancestral Recall
    Timetwister
    Demonic Tutor
    Vampiric Tutor

    Win the Game (4):
    1 Tendrils of Agony
    Monastery Mentor
    Yawgmoth's Will
    Time Walk

    Removal (2):
    1 Chain of Vapor
    1 Hurkyl's Recall

    Sideboard:
    4 Tormod's Crypt
    4 Fragmentize
    2 Kambal, Consul of Allocation
    Library of Alexandria
    1 Bontu's Last Reckoning
    1 Hurkyl's Recall
    1 Chain of Vapor
    1 Karakas
    1 Plains

    Since we are adding White for Lavinia, we can play Monastery Mentor as an additional win con, as well as Kambal, Consul of Allocation for Outcome, and Fragmentize for Workshops. What are everyone's thoughts on this Lavinia brew?
