Details (Description): With the Azorius, you have the law on your side. The proud armada of white and blue fliers contained in the Azorius Ascendant deck will soar over the battlefield right into your opponents face. Meanwhile, your opponents attackers will be bogged down in your defensive web. Winning should be a mere formality. The Azorius Ascendant deck can come out of the gates in two different ways. You might spend the early part of the game setting up your defense. Once youre safe from harm, youll draw extra cards in clever ways and finally play out a fleet of fliers for the win. Alternatively, you can start by playing lots of cheap, aggressive fliers, such as Azorius First-Wing and Mistral Charger. Bombard your opponent while taking damage in return, and then tangle up the ground with your defenders. Your opponents creatures will face some serious blocking, while your creatures can hardly be blocked at all. Youll have access to cards that can tap creatures, such as Minister of Impediments, Plumes of Peace, and Azorius Guildmage. Not only are these effective, but theyll also stifle your opponents strategy! If a creature is too big for you to block safely, tap it during your opponents turn. If a creature can block your fliers, tap it to prevent it from blocking. While the decks tap effects are sneaky, its untap effects are downright devious, as seen on Beacon Hawk, Tidewater Minion, and Sky Hussar. Each time you untap one of your creatures enchanted by Ocular Halo, you can tap that creature to draw an extra card. Untap Minister of Impediments so you can tap troublesome opposing creatures, or untap your Benevolent Ancestor to prevent extra damage. Youll be tapping and untapping so often, your opponents head will spin! Once youve played the deck a few times, customize it. If you want more large fliers, try the Ninth Edition core sets Serra Angel or Mahamoti Djinn. Puppeteer and Archivist, also from the core set, add even more tapping and untapping tricks. Cheap spells that keep your opponent off-balance, such as Remand from the Ravnica: City of Guilds set, work wonders for this decks aggressive air assault. Lay down the law!
