Great brewing! Loving this particular brand of jank. I used to run similar combos with Daring Thief to gift terrible artifacts & enchantments like Nefarious Lich Forbidden Crypt Immortal Coil and Demonic Pact . It was tough to assemble but exciting to pull off.

i love this! i actually have a similar WU goat deck, with more emphasis on raising chroma/devotion -> more goats. But Daring Thief is excellent here. Id really appreciate it if you checked out my Goat Tribal? Hell yeah ... thanks!

Spellbook does only one thing that has no extra effect with multiples in play. The Journal, Reliq Tower and Library should be enough on that front. Graceful Adept as a creature is too fragile for just this effect.

Alabaster Leech is just a free blocker to a non-white deck. Seems narrow enough that it could be cut. Sapphire Leech is sort of in the same boat but blue typically gets played more than white so if you keep one, keep the blue one. I'd personally cut both.

Sunforger doesn't have a ton of targets that it can search up, though when you need to have Boros Charm I suppose you'd regret cutting it...

Drogskol Reaver seems a bit out of place here. Your commander should be drawing you more than enough cards plus gaining enough life and you won't often be winning through combat damage.

Spawnbroker seems the worst of this kind of effect so trim and just keep the better versions. Daring Thief could use some support to use reliably; Holdout Settlement , Cultivator's Caravan / Smuggler's Copter [or any other vehicle that it could crew].

My understanding is that a lot of people hate playing against Thieves' Auction as it really drags out a game and can be frustrating if it keeps getting played game after game so maybe cut to preserve your playgroup. Scrambleverse could fall into this category as well. I'd leave Possibility Storm though if you really want this kind of 'chaos' effect in the deck.

Its not 19 cuts but some suggestions that could help you make some decisions on what you really want to have stay.

Umbilicus, Blood Clock and maybe Daring Thief could help you

Puca's Mischief & Daring Thief are similar to the controlling auras from before; could lead to some interesting situations as you swap around permanents

I was looking at the Mtggoldfish upgrade of the Aminatou Commander deck (https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-commander-20-subjective-reality-upgrade) and I'm really interested in the donate theme, but I'm a bit confused on how card's like Puca's Mischief or Daring Thief work if I exchange control of an Enchantment that is attached to something


I gain control of opponents Curiosity attached to their creature, I understand that when the enchantment effect triggers I draw a card, however:

  • Does the creature stay on my opponent's side of the board?

  • If it moves the creature to my side of the board can I attack with the creature and can my opponent still activate any of the creatures abilities (eg: a tap ability)?

  • If the creature is on my side of the board and I have a Viscera Seer or an Athreos, God of Passage would I be able to sacrifice the creature or count it towards my devotion (assuming the creature was the right colour)?

Thanks (apologies for the long question)
