Aminatou, the Fateshifter Discussion

Megalomania on The Oathblinker: Venser Lab Manharmonicon

With the wincon being Lab Man and flicker as the main tech, i'm surprised you aren't using Aminatou, the Fateshifter as Oathbreaker. Parallax Wave is an awesome piece if you're looking for more flicker/removal/control effects.

You still need to draw from your empty library to win. I am using the same tech but with Aminatou, the Fateshifter as my Oathbreaker since her +1 let's us draw for the win.

Hey Pikobyte,

If you would like a change of pace, there are some fun cards that i like to put in the deck. I love Zur's Weirding in this deck. After a Mindslicer nobody will draw any thing of use with it on the field. I'm also testing Primal Surge . I think it is too expensive, but is a lot of fun.

Changing the subject, what's the deal with Gonti, Lord of Luxury ? It's a nice card, my friend use it in his Aminatou, the Fateshifter deck. You are using him like some type of win condition or just for value?

@GhostChieftain: Progress report:

I have gotten myself to 19 cuts remaining; but w/ the idea of a new Chandra & a new Ajani beating me up faster than cuts, what in the right mind to do about this... I'll just make some new questions until further notice. It's ironic I put back Aminatou, the Fateshifter & Spark Double again. Maybe I should revise the questions w/ some new ones in case anyone cares. I'm fighting an unending war regardless. Might as well embrace it the way a Grixis Individual should; those like me...

rangab7 on Would you rather die to Najeela or Ultimates?

I feel like you need two cards to get this a higher tier

Faith's Reward or Second Sunrise and Druids' Repository

Druid's is situational but you should consider it since najeela will win early game with it out and Faith's Reward is a very nice combo piece.

Sack all your walkers with their minus abilities and then ult with Aminatou, the Fateshifter then cast it to get back your board plus another persons while another guy gets nothing. Cast the reward and you have your old board.

Also, playing superfriends is political suicide. Get them back when you inevitably draw hate

Other cards you might want consider if you want to stick more to the 'ramp everyone into oblivion' theme is Howling Mine , Ghirapur Orrery , and Horn of Greed . Heartless Hidetsugu might also be neat in that it accelerates everyone's clock very quickly.

More odd and chaotic possibilities could include Fortunate Few and Aminatou, the Fateshifter

PIayswithFlRE on Oathbreakers for the missing shards ...

Just kind of spitballing at this point.

I really like the idea of the Oathbreaker format, but I also like a lot of the three color combinations, and realized some (actually half) of them had no current possible oathbreakers.

Shards Wedges
  • Abzan
    • {needs one}
    • Kaya / Yanggu / Vraska / Garruk ?
  • Jeskai
    • {needs one}
    • Ral / Terferi / Narset ?
  • Sultai
    • {needs one}
    • Kiora / Ashiok / Vraska / Tezzeret ?
  • Mardu
    • {needs one}
    • Angrath / Nahiri / Sorin?
  • Temur

I started out thinking that I wanted Naya to be Huatli to lead a three-color dinosaur deck with Savage Stomp as the signature spell. But then I thought that the most interesting Mardu option would be a Sorin / Nahiri flipwalker, which got me thinking about doing it as a set with ties to the aftermath of the War of the Spark, which would probably be something like

  • Samut, Vindicated with Heroic Reinforcements
    • who returns to Amonkhet having defeated the god-pharaoh she'd previously dissented against
  • Three planeswalkers who broke from Bolas and are now hunting down those that didn't
    • Kaya with Assassin's trophy?
    • Vraska with Connive//Concoct?
    • Ral with Justice Strike or Deafening Clarion?
  • Sorin / Nahiri with Bedeck//Bedazzle?
    • since they each feel betrayed by the other and resume their conflict

No real justification for the color shifts for Kaya and Ral, though.

I think I'd personally be most interested/have more ideas for a Naya Huatli, Abzan Yanggu or Vraska, Sultai Kiora, and Jeskai Narset than what I had above; like the Sorin / Nahiri transformer, though I'm unsure of the signature spell I'd want to gear them towards.

Any good candidates I'm forgetting?
