Yes, I am actively avoiding the Felidar Guardian combos, plenty of other people are doing it and I really just don't want to be that guy.

I had to make a lot of cuts when building this deck, and I honestly just don't like Predict that much (more personal preference than anything else). Surprised I didn't think of Serum Visions and Preordain, they're some pretty good cards.

Topping high CMC cards using the tutors could be an interesting idea, I'll give it some thought.

Thanks for the suggestions, there are some good ideas here (although, implementing them is hard, I have a tough time making cuts).

Preordain and Serum Visions as more ways to set up your topdecks are probably worthwhile, and I'm curious about why you cut Predict from the precon, being able to hit miracles at instant speed is super useful. Another group of cards I could see being useful are the topdeck tutors; Vampiric Tutor, Mystical Tutor, etc. Also, are you actively avoiding the Felidar Guardian combos? Because you already have Vela the Night-Clad and Panharmonicon, it would be easy to fit in the cat.

If you're going competitive you should have All the best possible mana rocks and lands like I mentioned above. After that look into shifting the total CMC down. Anything more expensive than 3 CMC needs to have a very powerful effect.

Looking at your list I would remove every single 4+ drop if you're going this route.

As far as combos you're kind of limited in BW, the prices of these pieces are all over the place, some cheap, some prohibitively expensive:

OK, that was a lot! Hope this put you in the right direction.

If you really want to make Aminatou work then you can throw in multiple draw 2 spells. Take your pick of Gush/Night's Whisper/Frantic Search, etc. and play more than just the 1 in the stock pile.

If you are playing Doomsday, however, you really do need to play Gush. Skipping it makes Doomsday not worth playing. It gives Doomsday some speed and lets you win without a lot of mana investment. Gush is "fine" on its own, not great but on a High Tide mana-base like most DD lists play, it's passable. The other options are not as good for piling. Frantic Search and Night's Whisper require extra resources.

The ultimate recommendation sadly, is don't build piles around Aminatou, since she makes your life harder and not easier. However, if you really want to, build them like normal with some extra power from multiple draws. The Predict pile also does work.

An example pile is:

  1. Predict
  2. Gitaxian Probe
  3. Lion's Eye Diamond
  4. Yawgmoth's Will
  5. Laboratory Maniac

It plays out like this:

A. Open with Aminatou to draw Predict and put something on top

B. Predict the card you put on top, draw Gitaxian Probe and Lion's Eye Diamond

C. Cast Lion's Eye Diamond, then Gitaxian Probe/Lion's Eye Diamond for

D. Draw and cast Yawgmoth's Will

E. Cast Lion's Eye Diamond from the yard for

F. Gitaxian Probe from yard to draw and cast Laboratory Maniac

G. Cast Predict from the yard naming anything, draw to win

But that pile requires to win. You need the first to cast the Predict initially, but you can float leftover from the second Lion's Eye Diamond and use colorless mana to cast the Laboratory Maniac.


It's not that the piles here don't work, it's just that they are very inefficient. Unlike with Sensei's Divining Top, Aminatou doesn't let you draw again once you redraw, while SDT does. That's pretty important. While you can just jam any number of draw 2s, or Predict in the list to get there, it's just not where you want to be with DD builds.

My advice is don't skip Gush and the other good piles if you really want to play Aminatou, and I'd avoid relying on her to make your piles better.

If you're looking for cards to cut and replace, Vindicate is probably worse than Anguished Unmaking unless you see a lot of problematic lands like Homeward Path in your meta. Instants are less important than permanents in a flicker deck Esper Charm and Predict especially seem a little underwhelming. I don't think Dictate of Erebos is very good without a sac outlet either. I also don't think you'll have enough white mana sources early on to use Knight of the White Orchid. Maybe replace it with a colorless tutor like Pilgrim's Eye or Thaumatic Compass  Flip.

With Aminatou's -1, you can probably get a lot of work out of Aligned Hedron Network Especially if you can use it to get more triggers off of Sepulchral Primordial and Torrential Gearhulk than just flickering them individually. Even better, if you want to add Conjurer's Closet or Rings of Brighthearth (or just use Oath of Teferi you already have) you can have Aligned Hedron Network lock all the big guys and Lavinia of the Tenth detain all the smaller ones every turn.

It is possible, though a little weaker. The piles you want to look into are piles which use Predict and Unearth as the way to use Laboratory Maniac to win.

I agree, sadly LED has just become a very hard to obtain card, and unfortunately is one of the key pieces which makes Doomsday competitive thanks to the ability to produce 3 mana of any color. However, it's very doable to play without, and generally you lean on Unearth. This also helps trim Yawgmoth's Will, and while neither should be cut, both are sadly expensive, and this is I think the best alternative.
