Captain of the Mists Discussion

If you want to try it out I would add Captain of the Mists. You have a few humans and if you soulbond one with deadeye you can keep returning it to untap the captain. Even without Gilder Bairn, captain may be worth adding to untap your artifacts, especially the veil.

Guided Passage Surprising fun card, but a no go in this deck

Traverse the Ulvenwald I like it, but need the room for something else

Bloodbraid Elf I am a fan, but in the new build it just hits too many cards

Captain of the Mists yes goes infinite, but Pestermite is enough

Clever Impersonator I am a big fan and he will return, but not right now

Fatespinner I like this card a lot, but lacks aggression in this deck

Feldon of the Third Path He will probably return, but for now I need slots for testing

Sakura-Tribe Elder Normally an auto include when I play green, but want to try something else

Thrummingbird Was a good card in the first build, but with the changes I think he will lose much of his value in the deck

Treasure Keeper but thinking hard about this one. With the new build he seems less productive

Venser, Shaper Savant I like this card and always will, but right now a no go

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger for now a no go, too much mana and with the new idea’s just out of the range I want to go. Maybe in fase three

If Captain of the Mists is exiled with Mairsil, the Pretender, could he then use the ability to untap himself?

I don't like Elite Arcanist, you don't want to exile too much stuff. I do like Captain of the Mists and he'd do good work in this deck, especially with Docent. Also, try to invest in a Time Spiral.

5 color?!? Now I know your crazy, but 5 color crazy? ;). Well I think you need to have equipments that are made for humans like Bladed Bracers, True-Faith Censer and Silver-Inlaid Dagger and if you like scarescrows Harvest Hand  Flip. Then we need some bad-ass humans. I'll just say one human per color to keep it simple. My favorite human/white is Elite Inquisitor, forget the protection, a 2/2 two drop with first strike and vigilance is tight. A great red would be Kessig Malcontents or Riot Ringleader. Green human could be Hamlet Captain or a super badass human Warden of the First Tree. Blue human Captain of the Mists. black human Village Cannibals. Those are just a few. Out of all honesty I think it might be a little ambitious to try 5 color humans m. 3 color might be a happy medium that won't leave you super frustrated trying to make it work ;)

Captain of the Mists + Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is silly since most of the combo pieces in Azami (namely Azami herself) have a pretty high saturation of symbols.

Those three in play the shrine taps for 6 meaning every spell you cast and every human you play that's under 2 mana will net mana. I look at Captain as a bad Mind Over Matter though.

Ohthenoises I tend to agree on Basalt and Rings, it's a good mana combo in casual but I don't like it in competitive builds. I've been toying with Docent of Perfection  Flip for a while now too because it just provides so much for an Azami list, plus it's funny with Dramatic Scepter. I'm glad you brought up the Captain of the Mists interaction, it's something I hadn't actually thought of and it's kind of funny. It's similar to Docent of Perfection  Flip and Intruder Alarm in that regard I guess. Not something to actively try to find but silly when you do.
