Aminatou, the Fateshifter Discussion

Kogarashi on How does bouncing a Day ...

1 week ago

Assuming we start with Day of the Dragons on the battlefield and Noxious Gearhulk in exile, this is what happens:

  • You activate Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1, targeting Day of the Dragons. It resolves as one single object on the stack. This means it exiles Day, triggering Day's LTB, and then immediately returns Day, triggering Day's ETB. Neither trigger goes on the stack until the loyalty ability is done resolving.

  • Both abilities will go on the stack at the same time. Since you control both abilities, you get to order them however you choose. The LTB will return your Gearhulk, while the ETB will exile all creatures you control.

  • If you choose to have the LTB resolve first, you will sacrifice any Dragons you currently have, then the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield and its ETB will trigger, going on the top of the stack. That will resolve next, then the Day's ETB, which will exile your Gearhulk and create a dragon token. You will end with a Gearhulk in exile and a dragon token on the battlefield.

  • If you choose to have the ETB resolve first, you will exile any creatures you have (if your dragon tokens are still around), then create that many dragon tokens. Then the LTB will resolve, forcing you to sacrifice your Dragons (if any), the Gearhulk will return to the battlefield, and its ETB will trigger, going on the now-empty stack. You will end with a Gearhulk on the battlefield and no dragon tokens.

I'm unsure what will happen if i bounce a Day of the Dragons with, say, Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1 ability. If i have a Day of the Dragons that has exiled a Noxious Gearhulk and then bounce it will all the triggers leave me with Gearhulk in exile or on the battlefield?

Hmmm. If five opponents has 5 artifact and enchantments togheter Dockside Extortionist goes infinit in this deck. Find Aminatou, the Fateshifter and flicker the goblin for and there you have it. Cool I am adding the goblin. Things you learn.

Triad of fates is slow but you can make it work if you want to. There are a number of good untap effects and cards like Illusionist's Bracers.

Another option is to run a commander that you want to blink instead of a commander that blinks other creatures. Ghost Council of Orzhova and Obzedat, Ghost Council are both solid choices. I like the first one more as it becomes an aristocrat/blink and can be done once for each player at the table instead of only once per your turn.

If you are not opposed to adding a color Aminatou, the Fateshifter is crazy strong. Unlike triad you don't need enablers for her and it stays on your original idea of blinking things in the deck and opens more blinky options.

this is a sisay weatherlight captain deck for cedh this deck runs 2 different combos that could win you the game Godo, Bandit Warlord Helm of the Host (i don't think i have to explain this one) Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Oath of Teferi both pws can now flicker each other and 1 additional permanents (a land whould produce infinite mana for exemple) to win from there you can use Oath of Kaya or Ashiok, Dream Render to kill your opponents and win

that's a lot of cards and godo is faster you think ? well not realy using either Bloom Tender or Faeburrow Elder activate the boss to find Derevi, Empyrial Tactician this will untap the dork you can now find Aminatou, the Fateshifter flicker derevi find Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God and i assume you get it from now

the rest of the deck is toolboxing so i'll not get into every scenario for each card but sisay's activations can be used "as counterspells" to specific things

raspberryfish25 I did consider those cards but I either considered them unnecessary or redundant. They are good cards but this deck is more focused on bringing attention away from me or to make deals all across the board. Plus I don't know how well this deck plays since I only have Aminatou, the Fateshifter and the basic lands/ guild lands.

PhantomHuscarl Thanks for your commendation and suggestions!

Here're some of my reasonings for the suggestions you've raised above:

Soothsaying - This card has been on my KIV list but I always end up cutting it to make room for other cards. The Shuffle effect is good. However, I'm not a fan of having to pay a lot of mana for the top of library manipulation. If you're building this deck, do test it out and let me know how it goes.

Necropotence - If you noticed, I don't play that many card draws in the deck. Much of the slots are dedicated to tutors and top of library manipulation. We also don't want to draw into the extra turn spells as we've limited ways to return them to top of library.

Talisman of Hierarchy - Good call. I haven't updated the ramp package recently and should really get a copy of this and add it into the deck!

Imperial Seal - It's listed in my Too Poor to Afford category in my Maybeboard. Always wanted to get my hands on one but my wallet says otherwise.

Isochron Scepter Dramatic Reversal Combo - Infinite Mana is awesome but I don't have mana sinks in this deck to effectively make use of the mana generated.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter - This is a good planeswalker that fits the theme of my deck very well. However, she needs to stick around longer to accrue value to justify her spot in the deck. With a deck that's creatureless except for the Commander, I've no means to protect Aminatou from combat damages.

The other PWs I play, are slightly different. Liliana is used to manipulate cards to the top of the library twice (usually taking 2 extra turns while I set up the wincon/combo pieces). Tezzeret is an artifact tutor that has served his purpose once he fetches the toy I need.

Keep your suggestions and discussions coming!

Hello there! I really love your deck, looks really fun to play and out of the ordinary EDH schemes!

Anyway, i'm here to ask you about some cards that i think will just be fine in this kind of deck.

Soothsaying Seems really on topic with it, you know, it's odd, it's a 1 mana drop and let you Shuffle and manipulate the topdeck. Talking about Enchantments, i also think Necropotence can be a thing. You know, you don't draw, but Yennett trigger in combat and does what she have to. The new Talisman of Hierarchy Seems also Good for mana Balance. I know it's veeeery expensive, but you also have Imperial Seal for topdeck tutor. Also, if you have the Isochron Scepter gaving Dramatic Reversal can also be good, for a infinite mana-combo that can be used to pull out something with Soothsaying . In the end, Aminatou, the Fateshifter could also be a nice add for topdeck manipulation and blink things like Liliana Vess and Tezzeret the Seeker for other tutors and Mana Vault or Grim Monolith for untap.

Cheers and keep up the good work!
