AtrusOfMyst on Aminatou - A Child's Take on Genocide

Fun looking deck. +1

I have been having lots of fun abusing Aminatou's -1 ability to steal opponent's creatures with Gilded Drake . Juxtapose is another interesting card with a similar effect.

Another fun card to flicker that removes an opponent's artifacts or enchantments is Act of Authority . Casting Reality Acid on any of our opponent's stuff and then flickering it out is a good piece of hard removal too.

An alternate win condition that is quite fun if you have ways to control the top of your library is Approach of the Second Sun .

Here's my take on upgrading the "Subjective Reality" commander pre-con with Aminatou, the Fateshifter at the helm here.

My strategy is about 70% topdeck shenanigans, 30% flicker/blink. Its a little bit powered down from yours (7-8 power level out of 10, no infinite combos).

Cheers!

Approach of the Second Sun + Long-Term Plans . I can't count the number of games where I won using this combo alone in my Dragonlord Ojutai deck. You can also swap out Long-Term Plans for any number of cards.

Mostly, i tryed to sinergise my creatures, like Doom Whisperer & Approach of the Second Sun

What i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field, then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun and hard cast it in the same turn in second main fase to win the game very oddly.

Also, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign works very well with Artisan of Kozilek and Sepulchral Primordial / Diluvian Primordial giving me a TON of Value with at least 2 huge creatures, and probably 5 creatures or 3 other good spells (and also get rid of those spells), get the most valuable from others graveyards.

If there's something to improve it's probably use some fetch lands, and i'm considering Penance and Haunted Crossroads

Thank you Joe_Ken_!!!, as you said Merchant Scroll is able to search Nexus of Fate indeed, but this will be in my hand, and with this commander you need it in the top of your library befores she attack,

About Soothsaying it was already considered, but it turns out to be too expensive in the long run, the only way to make it work is paying at least for in order to swap both bards if needed, but as you said it could be a good idea with Approach of the Second Sun , usually what i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field and then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun .

Hour of Revelation it's a very good option since takes out everything in the board, and usually it's what we really want. (i'm thinking in this deck as a Tempo/Beater/Control)

Soothsaying could be really good especially if you are going for a win with Approach of the Second Sun since it could just dig into the deck pretty far. I was thinking Hour of Revelation may be a better board wipe card for the deck since it can end up with a discounted cost on its own.

suarkdivad You're welcomed. I'm loving the Approach of the Second Sun line of victory too. Besides taking Infinite turns, it is the most common way I win the game!

Fully agree with you on the mana rocks. I personally play 13 rocks to ensure I can power out Yennett ASAP (my best draw had me casting her on Turn 1 once).

I'm inclined to run extra turn spells though they're frowned upon by some play groups and can be costly to acquire.

Is your meta creature heavy since you're running Rise of the Dark Realms ? Debt to the Deathless is an interesting choice in the deck since it is usually used in combo decks that can generate alot of mana at 1 go.

Do have a look at my list and lemme know your suggestions and comments. An upvote is welcomed too. Cheers!

Thanks for the upvote and comment. Main goal for this deck is to set up for some fun swingy plays without any combo. My list has Approach of the Second Sun in the deck and the very first game I played with the deck I hit it off my first Yennett swing and also had a Mystical Tutor in hand for the second swing. Took Approach out because I realized it was just going to be an Approach deck otherwise.

Although it fights a little with the Yennett plan, I like having Baneful Omen , Twilight Prophet , and Sorin in the deck for alternate ways to drain people. Really fun with Jace out.

I know I have some competitive cards in here, but it's actually more of a play for fun and see what happens deck. Biggest challenge is balancing the card types so you can get fun swings off Yennett but also not stall out with nothing to cast. Really can't go overboard on the mana rocks because they'll either power out an early Yennett or pay for your bigger spells later on.
