Aminatou, the Fateshifter occurrence in decks from the last year

Aminatou, the Fateshifter Discussion

carpecanum on Blim's stand up routine

Thieves' Auction. Bedlam? Vampirism. Exquisite Blood, Midnight Banshee

Enchantment auras and things like that could buff your boss no matter who controls the enchantment.

Hunted Dragon, Hunted Horror, Clackbridge Troll

I have been waiting for a guy like Blim for years. The only bad thing is I have to have an ally to use Aminatou, the Fateshifter at the same time.

I think even casual commander playgroups won't care about this lotus in the long run. If your playgroup is like mine, we don't really care if you are even playing banned stuff or silver border stuff as long is it isnt something too insane or oppressive.

I have a bigger problem with Aminatou, the Fateshifter's ultimate than this card.

I can see what you want to do but you are going about the wrong way doing it, I understand you want to be able to answer just about any given situation using the cards you have available to counter very specific strategies but your deck will need to be tuned to handle just that. Your deck lacks focus, albeit you have tons of tutors and situational cards I can see you identifying as being usable in a specific scenario but outside of those scenarios the cards fall flat. I'll give an example using cards from your deck.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician is a fantastic card for untapping your mana dorks and other creatures, but folds in your deck because you don't have a way to capitalize on his ability. You have very few creatures to swing with and the ones you could be swinging with, unfortunately you'll find yourself not wanting to because their effects are better with them alive on the field.

Brago, King Eternal is an excellent card but you lack a large pool of enter the battlefield effects that is necessary to make him useful if drawn at any given moment.

Currently your deck has a very low CMC this will translate into you dumping your hand quickly in games, normally to facilitate the loss of the hand advantage players supplement various ways to draw cards to refill their options for the coming turns. Within your deck there are two true cards that do that with 6 cards that I would consider as card draw all together. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain and Reki, the History of Kamigawa fall under the "true" category, the other 4 are planeswalkers with a notable 5th which I exclude Aminatou, the Fateshifter due to the low CMC of the deck you will tend to find yourself with perhaps no cards in hand at all. At that point Aminatou doesn't draw you a card or net you anything.

Another flaw I found is you have big stompy creatures for perhaps just the sake of having them. Which if you want to do so go ahead but it will reduce the decks overall functionality by replacing a space that could be used more efficiently.

All-in-all I don't think Sisay is a great start for your deck or the end-goal I feel you are looking to achieve. You want to be able to control the game before it's over which is a solid strategy. I would recommend a couple of other commanders to look into which can perhaps refine your strategy further. With thyese your toolbox can be both spells and creatures to restrict your opponents plays and movements.

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician , Chulane, Teller of Tales , Grand Arbiter Augustin IV , Brago, King Eternal

(From Aminatou, the Fateshifter's plane:

Amadi, of the Great Aviary

Legendary Planeswalker - Amadi

Creatures you contol with flying get +1/+0 and have haste.

+1: Create a 1/1 red Bird creature token with flying.

-2: Amadi deals 2 damage to each creature with flying you don't control.

-6:Gain control of all creatures with flying or reach until end of turn. Untap those creatures. They gain haste until end of turn.


I think this would be balanced, and a fun card to have with green flyers.

I'd like to see a monogreen flyer

Arcaneful on Karametra Help With a Cut …

Harvest Season

Hey all! This is my current deck I'm working on, and I'm having a lot of fun with it. I have a cut and a need for some upgrades however.

My college's meta is a fairly strong one, I'd say it's around 50%-75%. Some decks include: Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Gargos, Vicious Watcher, Aminatou, the Fateshifter, and Glissa, the Traitor.

Firstly, I'm trying to slot an Eternal Witness in here somewhere, but I'm having trouble deciding if it's worth to add in in this case. Any suggestions?

Secondly, what are some good cards I should save up for in the future? I'm thinking cards like Cloudstone Curio and Sylvan Library are on the list, but would love any other suggestions. Highest I'll go is around 40$.

I'm aiming for the deck to just be quicker at what it does: getting Karametra out ASAP, then proceeding to ramp out and overwhelm my opponents with my boardstate. Thanks for any help!

I played the deck the first time yesterday and ran into an Esper Control with Aminatou, the Fateshifter.

I hardly stand a chance against her flicker capabilities, which killed all relevant creatures, especially my Commander, if he entered.

He flickered things like Cavalier of Dawn and Elspeth Conquers Death and his deck is full of ETB cards killing and removing my stuff.

I have no idea how to handle this.

Spark Double is an amazing card and fits seamlessly in this deck. I was running it for probably the first 10 or so games I played with this deck. It ended up getting taken out simply out of need for more responses to enemy's board state.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter seems like a solid play that I honestly have not considered up to this point and may need to try at some point.

Caerwyn to top that, RambIe runs Gamble, Putrid Imp, Carrion Feeder, Faithless Looting, etc. but in all honesty, he seems to troll the forum because he thinks it's funny knowing that the deck-sharing forum would have people share deck ideas, and so saying that netdecking is bad is just funny to him.

When he brought up that my decks looks like ones he's played against and so he'd have an advantage over me I explained that the decks in question were ones that I had pioneered or remade, different Captain Sisay lines I pioneered after Mox Amber's printing, different Sisay, Weatherlight Captain lines I am still innovating on, Aminatou, the Fateshifter Tezzeret based stax which I effectively birthed (unlike the rest I just reimagined), and those decks that he saw as similar to mine were copies/variants of my lists, or of other people who took inspiration from them.

After explaining that on his page, and then asking him to not comment these types of things on another user's forum post, he commented on my page, on a comment that is still up as I type this. He effectively explained that he was understanding that that was not the place for that conversation and that he likes to troll people by stating these things, not personally something I am interested in, but he explains his goals there if you want to know. Hope it helps!
