I love it! Seems legit actually. Gonna try this at my LGS.Cut Aetherwind Basker for another Glimmer of Genius since I don't fancy that card, too expensive and fragile.Also, why Empyreal Voyager instead of Whirler Virtuoso since you're in R/U already?

Upvoted! Check my fog deck that is competitive as well! The Revolting Fog

Aetherstream Leopard can only activate it's ability one time at combat, not unlimited times or it will be followed by a colon. See below.

Aetherwind Basker has the effect you're looking for.

Thanks The_Ninjurai. I thought since double strike gave first strike and regular attack it would count as two attacks. Thanks for the suggestions I'll try tweeking it a bit so Aetherwind Basker can generate enough energy to still go for infinite combat.

Double strike will not give you extra energy with Lightning Runner or Aetherwind Basker attack ability. Double strike does not mean that the creature attacks twice, only that it deals first strike and normal strike damage.

I'd recommend taking out 3 or 4 Rishkar's Expertise because you don't have many creatures to let draw cards. Also take out Blood Mist since it's 4 cmc for an ability that doesn't help a lot.

4 Aetherwind Basker and 4 Lightning Runner is a bit too much for such high costing cards. By time you cast them you're probably close to dead. They want you to have multiple creatures out, of which you don't have many.

I'd suggest trying some of these: Longtusk Cub, Sage of Shaila's Claim, Voltaic Brawler, Aetherstream Leopard, Aether Herder, and Bristling Hydra. They are some lower costing creatures that can give you energy or hit hard.

For some removal/protection try Harnessed Lightning, Shock, Highspire Infusion, Nature's Way, Collective Defiance. Also probably want a Natural State in the side board.

Nissa, Nature's Artisan wouldn't be a bad card to put in either. Keep in mind you want more lower cost spells than higher so you can cast more things.

Hope that helps.

I've played with Peema Aether-Seer before, it's kind of slow and takes yet another 4mana slot (which i already have too many of). I've considered the Aetherwind Basker but i've not gotten the opportunity to playtest it yet. Considering it has trample, it can definetly serve as one of the winconditions. I'll make some space for it soon as i'm planning to change out some cards atm.

This is a pretty interesting list you've got there. +1 from me for sure. You could take a look at my blink-list: Eternal Displaceness (finite combo flicker)

You might like Peema Aether-Seer and Aetherwind Basker. The latter could actually punch your opponent to the moon with felidar guardian, panharmonicon and any of your etb-energy cards.

Between Aether Hub, Attune with Aether, and Servant of the Conduit, your color fixing seems more than adequate. I would drop all 3 Prophetic Prism for Decoction Module. I would probably drop the 2 Peema Aether-Seer and possibly 1 Aetherwind Basker for 3 Bristling Hydra. The Hydras pump themselves, protect themselves, and make great use of energy and at 4 CMC they will come down and close te game befire you can even play the Basker in most games.Just some thoughts. Looks like a fun deck to play.

Yes if you look at MTGGoldfishes deck list he does have Confiscation Coup in the sideboard. I think I still like Negate better than Horribly Awry but thanks for the tip. Altered Ego I might try later once I know the deck better. You are right when it comes to Aetherwind Basker and it really does suck when in your hand because you might never get the chance to cast it.
