If you are running Unsubstantiate, Topplegeist and Take into Custody you probably don't need Subjugator Angel. Instead you could try a bit more damage like Aethersquall Ancient and Aetherwind Basker. It looks like you are using a lot of energy so I would also take out Kujar Seedsculptor and put in Servant of the Conduit from your maybeboard. If you are willing to spend a little bit more you check out Botanical Sanctum and Aetherworks Marvel. If you want a planeswalker you could try Dovin Baan, he is a cheaper one that can still put on some pressure.

Nice deck. I'm a little uneasy about 3x Aetherwind Basker. Have you had trouble casting it? I feel like it would be better as a 2 of and take Bristling Hydra up to 4. I know the trample is key but that cmc is killer.

Oh, lol well that does work well too as far as full rotation. I think I see the confusion was that I wasn't considering that Innistrad was rotating out at the same time as Zendikar, I thought is was one block at a time now.

I can tell you that if you want to have a similar "blowout" creature build like with Ormendahl, then currently I'm seeing Aetherwind Basker as the biggest if not the best one.

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.
