Arbiter of the Ideal

Creature — Sphinx

Flying Inspired — Whenever Arbiter of the Ideal becomes untapped, reveal the top card of your library. If it's an artifact, creature or land card you may put it onto the battlefield with a manifestation counter on it. That permanent is an enchantment in addition to its other types.

I like that you removed the red from this and went with Aminatou, the Fateshifter .

Not sure how competitive you want to make this but here are some cards to think about:

Arbiter of the Ideal

Augury Adept

Bone Harvest

Candles of Leng

Conduit of Ruin

Conundrum Sphinx

Deceiver of Form

Djinn of Wishes

Timesifter

Also you might want to look into the possibility of snow lands and Scrying Sheets

Braid of Fire would probably be good ramp. I fail to see Arbiter of the Ideal as being good. Just run Commander's Sphere instead of trying to use his wonky ability. Lower CMC, more consistent ability to use, especially in a three-color deck. I'm quite surprised you're not running it already.

bushido_man96. Not particularly. Perhaps Braid of Fire as a replacement for Nirkana Revenant? Could Arbiter of the Ideal work as a replacement for Patron of the Moon?

I love Arbiter of the Ideal - I didn't catch that it was a token effect, even if it has no other purpose. very nice call!

Serrated Biskelion might be worth running - shrinks creatures, would kill itself but with your commander... It's a nice alternitive to Serrated Arrows, the staple for prolifferate decks for re-appliably -1/-1 counters

perhaps Coalition Relic over myr? less fragile, plus can generate a charge counter, interact with other charge artifact stuff.

Eye of Doom? it fits the rediculous theme you have, and prevents opponents from realisitcally destroying your stuff in multiplayer.

love the concept! I like goofball decks alot more than infinite compeditive combo jank (see Squee: All the hats or Tom Cruise Crazy for what I mean). Very nice work!

hi Daggerfella,

I see.

You can go aggro control. Most of the creatures do hurt (5 power) with effective etb effect/s. Flickering them reuses their etb and give pseudo vigilance.

I will raise a disclaimer that esper tends to run "good stuff" because, well, there are good spells that have little to no alternates.

From the creature list: consider keeping

--removal Angel of Despair

Ashen Rider

Lavinia of the Tenth

Reflector Mage

--draw Sphinx of Uthuun

Mulldrifter

Cloudblazer

Archaeomancer

--value Arbiter of the Ideal Brago, King Eternal Diluvian Primordial -> great when many spells in opponents' gy

Sepulchral Primordial -> another good one, getting creatures in opponents' gy

Magister Sphinx -> my bias. similar to Sorin Markov

Vela the Night-Clad -> could be a win con, when you flicker enough

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign

Resolute Archangel

Sun Titan -> not sure if you have many 3cmc permanents, but usually great to have

--combo Deadeye Navigator Peregrine Drake

maybeboard Boreas Charger

Chancellor of the Spires

Demonlord Belzenlok

Djinn of Wishes

Felidar Guardian

Jace's Mindseeker

Mistmeadow Witch

hope this helps.

Well I think clash would work good. Pollen Lullaby and Scattering Stroke seem like the best 2. May some other stuff like Arbiter of the Ideal.

Some other good cards that care about the top like Baneful Omen, Counterbalance, Deceiver of Form,
