Dramatic Reversal Discussion
2 days ago
So you get infintie mana, then what? you're not really running any clean lines to actually just win the game. Walking Ballista + Conjurer's Bauble / Reconstruction is a good mana outlet that actually finishes the game. You also have loops you can form with Narset's Reversal and Timetwister to let you make infinite bird tokens with Swan Song .
You have quite a few expensive to cost cards which don't really add much to the deck - Blinkmoth Urn , Mycosynth Lattice , Ugin, the Ineffable and even Myr Battlesphere don't add enough value to the deck to warrant a spot IMO. Cards like Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal on the other hand provide the deck with a very fast an efficient infinite mana outlet with Urza.

I would advise (I hate myself) to put in Duskmantle Guildmage , as it goes infinite with Mindcrank , Call to the Kindred to get more advisors out, Fraying Sanity because of course, perhaps if you put in Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal , you could go infinite if you have mana rocks out. Also, Vanquisher's Banner can really help with card draw and even makes your stuff bigger just in case you need it. All in all, LOVE the deck, I was thinking about building mill in EDH soon, and I think I will base it off of this deck, so thanks. Oh and also, since more than half of your deck is blue, if also advise putting in a Drowned Secrets .

Honestly the more I see of this commander the more I wonder if I should convert my Mizzix deck into Kykar... anyways... If you want to generate infinite tokens Reiterate + Turnabout and about 10 mana gives you infinite tokens and mana. Also I feel like Paradox Engine and Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter (Dramatic Scepter) both have places here, as well as running a Sunforger package!

I would like to share some thoughts on your decklists with u. I currently brew my own version of Aminatou Stax and there are some card choices I would like to discuss with you.
First of all I wanna thank you for uploading your lists and sharing this with the community! I'm actually quite excited for your answers :-)
Regarding Aminatou, what inspired me to brew Esper Stax are the new cards from War of the Spark. I got that Blood Pod Brew for some time already and consider myself to be experienced with that deck and with stax in general. I can't afford cards like Twister, Duals, Chains of Mephistopheles or Tabernacle, so I brew without these. My playgroup in Germany is still quite competitive, with all the major T1 Decks around. At our table there is actually currently one deck that warps the meta around it and that is Shuffle Hulk, so I wanna focus on the interaction with that type of deck.
I would like to talk about your / my wincondition. I wonder, if Rings of Brighthearth , Basalt Monolith and Goblin Cannon as the main plan are really better than Paradox Engine and Isochron Scepter / Dramatic Reversal ? Especially that Goblin Cannon annoys me...
You'd win with Codex Shredder or Blind Obedience , which both fit in nicely anyway. One could add cards to draw the own deck like Stroke of Genius and play like Scroll Rack + Land Tax or maybe even the new Urza, Lord High Artificer instead of Clock of Omens .
Sure, cards like Rule of Law , Arcane Laboratory or Damping Sphere hinder the scepter-plan, but these won't do anything against Shuffle Hulk anyway. On the other hand, Rings + Basalt also win with Ashiok, Dream Render or Narset, Parter of Veils which u probably wanna play...
I myself am not sure about that question. White-Blue control decks always win slowly and that has honestly been the biggest issue for them in cEDH. Thrasios / Thymna can easily grind out a softlock and win with one tutor into Ad Naus or combo out through a Paradox Engine.
Following up I would like to know your opinion on these cards:
Teferi, Time Raveler and friends (Narset, Ashiok, Dovin)
And last but not least I am interested in your experiences with the discard package ( Liliana of the Veil , Bottomless Pit , Oppression ). When playtesting it felt like these cards create some kind of topdeck-mode for each play on the table. Still, I consider Aminatou not in the strongest position in this kind of situation against other Generals Thrasios / Thymna, Najeela, Zur, or any commander that tutors or creates value... To me it always felt best when I was able to flicker some value outlet (Creature or Planeswalker) to dig for answers or protect my stax piece(s)...
:-) I look forward to your reply! Ah and I'd like to mention a very funcard from playtesting, probably not very competitive but it was very fun to do the moves with Oath of Teferi + Aminatou ;-)

very cool setup for a primer brick, but I have to admit the text is so overly stylized it hurts my eyes to read, now maybe a black and white manga/comic book style layout of the art and dropdown titles.
Now I couldn't find why it isn't in the deck but I feel I have to mention Dramatic Reversal , it's been in most scepter decks since it got printed and at least should get a mention.

I think Isochron Scepter and Paradox Engine is probably a must. Running a storm deck with Laboratory Maniac I think that being able to cast Dramatic Reversal infinite times will either enable a Guttersnipe , Mind's Desire + Laboratory Maniac , Aetherflux Reservoir , or Grapeshot win combos, none of which I see. Could you please explain the main path to victory for this deck?
