AEthermage's Touch Discussion

Venser, the Sojourner seems a bit great. I'd also recommend Mulldrifter over Champion of Wits. And if you really need a good boardwipe I'd just recommend one of the classic 4 mana white wipes over Yahenni's Expertise. Makes sure the job gets done. Also, Cloudshift works pretty well with AEthermage's Touch so you could keep the body AND get another etb trigger.

Depending on which angle of control you want to take, I can offer different suggestions.

Some staples for Derevi you'll want to consider no matter what build you end up going for: Swords to Plowshares, Edric, Spymaster of Trest, Birds of Paradise, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, and Counterspell.

From your description, you could consider running a pillow-fort strategy. It's kind of like an extremely watered-down version of Stax that really just prevents opponents from attacking you, while they still have the resources to attack each other. It's definitely a politics-heavy strategy, making deals with opponents to convince them that other people are better targets until you start laying down wincons.

Essential cards: Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Collective Restraint (since you're in tri-colors), Norn's Annex, Orzhov Advokist, Windborn Muse, Martial Law, and Aurification.

Your wincons are going to be big fatties that also lock down the board or take advantage of your protection: Stormtide Leviathan (can't recommend this one enough), Azor's Elocutors, Isperia, Supreme Judge, and Blazing Archon.

If you want more traditional control that utilizes tapping/untapping, the general good all-arounds are: Aven Mindcensor, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Hokori, Dust Drinker, Trygon Predator, Bant Charm, Supreme Verdict, and Winter Orb.

For blink abuse, I suggest Deadeye Navigator.

As a general structure for your EDH deck, try to follow the pattern of 10 mana accelerators, 10 card draw effects, 5 spot removal, 5 boardwipes, and 4 tutor effects.

There's a few filler cards that don't fall in any of those categories, and don't necessary synergise. I recommend removing: Djinn of Infinite Deceits, Hada Spy Patrol, Kazandu Tuskcaller, Phantom Nantuko, Winged Coatl, Wonder, Curse of Predation, Pyramid of the Pantheon, Thunderstaff, AEthermage's Touch, Biomass Mutation, and Sprouting Vines.

Happy brewing!

Really cool deck! I know its kind of high cmc, but Conjurer's Closet seems pretty good with AEthermage's Touch. Also, I would think Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite would merit a spot somewhere in the 75.

Shapesharer counts as a sphinx, as does Mirror Entity and both are pretty good cards.

AEthermage's Touch is good card to pop in a surprise blocker for cheap and maybe a good attack before it goes away. Freaking hilarious if you get to cast something like Magister Sphinx.

Your guys tend to be pretty mana expensive and you put in a bunch of mana rocks already, so i'm just going to assume you don't have another Sol Ring laying around...

For pure sphinxy flavor you have to ask questions. See if anybody minds if you play Frankie Peanuts.

Flight of the Wincons

depends on your interpretation of the word fun and what you want the deck to do

personally i think brago's tokens could be interesting, you obviously wouldn't be blinking tokens, but token makers like Wingmate Roc, Ajani's Chosen, Blade Splicer, Precursor Golem, Master Splicer, Wing Splicer, Whirler Rogue, Myr Battlesphere, Geist-Honored Monk etc ...

then back it up with token enhancing enchantments, blink effects to draw cards (like Mulldrifter or Spreading Seas) ways to cheat cards in (like Flash or AEthermage's Touch) and some general utility like mana rocks (that dont enter tapped) etc

but there are many options once you forgo the traditional competitive lockdown/infinite combo plan, so spend some time on a magic card database searching for etb effects that fit your definition of fun.
