I like it. In a T1 setting you may consider Misdirection?

Other cards to definitely look at:
Gush
Thwart
Daze
These 3 allow you to replay your islands to help stave off stasis. Very nice.

Morphling
Alternate kill?

Claws of Gix
Sacrifice your stasis if you won't be able to pay the upkeep and then replay it during your turn.

Good luck!

Yeah good call with the mastermind, especially since chronatog is just better when the lock is set up.

Daze Buy is great b/c it can keep stasis alive while also being a free counter

Gush Buy would be great too

is ancestral vision the best draw you could use? if your skipping turns it will never resolve. Try Accumulated Knowledge Buy or maybe even Meditate Buy. Hell since your not taking turns try out Mystic Remora Buy

I think you may need more Orb of dreams just to improve your speed at setting up your Lock

Also how often does using Chain of Vapor Buy hurt you, just curious I can see the pros and cons, I can just see a couple scenarios where you bounce something and they bounce an important part of your deck switch them with echoing truth if you feel it is an issue

Otherwise sweet deck, I love stasis, I especially like the use of copper tablet, funny how I never thought of that card in stasis

If you could rate my Bauble Gifts deck I would appreciate it

Hey dudes,

Thanks for your suggestions Happy

Misdirection and Mystic Remora are really great ideas!

gush and daze have been in there, but because I use forsaken city and artifact lands (for tinker and the academy), they often dont work like they should.

(But they work really well in my SNAKESdeck. Check it out!)

ancestral vision has worked suprisingly well in this deck. the deeck is reeeeally slow. Andif i skip my turn, its probably because I have a lock, in which case i dont need the cards..

chain of vapor has also worked suprisingly well. If stasis is on the table, I return it to my hand and consider sacrificing a land to return something my opponent own. If I only have stasis out, I return something to my opponent hand during his turn and hope he is short minded enough to return my stasis to my hand..

I've seen a Stasis deck running Garruk Wildspeaker Buy. It's a fresh new idea compared to all the other stasis decks out there. Not sure if it's a good one though so try it out.

Don't see the point of Black Vise/Copper Tablet. Vise will take at least 7 turns to kill them. By that time, I'd just rather let them deck out and save myself a slot.

By the way, 4 Brainstorms is NOT legal in Vintage anymore.

Careful Study Buy can weed things out quickly if you are trying to search for cards. Otherwise, a Mystical Tutor Buy might be good.

Nice version of Stasis!Good My brother uses Stasis also and he calls it Turbo Stasis the only difference is that he uses Frozen AEther Buy, Jotun Grunt Buy, Arcane Denial Buy, Propaganda Buy as a sideboard, Standstill Buy, and has Darksteel Colossus Buy as his finisher.

His stasis is irritatingly fast but its very weak against burn and discarder decks. I hope this helps Happy


Please rate and add any comments or suggestions to my {X}{R}{G}Burning - RAGE{G}{R}{X}DeckGood

First: Brainstorm is restricted. It says so on the wizards banned/restricted list. I noticed the same thing earlier on another deck.

Pretty good deck here. Very similar to a stasis deck that I'm working on. I know your looking for spells, but perhaps you could consider some wall of frosts to sideboard against any aggro decks. It fits with the overall synergy of the deck.

You could also try working in Frozen Aether as a last resort to slow play your oponent until you hit your stasis combo.

Please rate my "Snakes in a Deck" Deck.

Some cards to consider is Thwart, Gush or Rescue. If you rescue your stasis then you can untap and throw down the lock again... Thwart and Gush would help you to hold the grip for a longer time...

besides jace cost 3.
