hkhssweiss on Aminatou Control Flicker

If you are going to an Esper control route with a sub theme of flicker, here might be some cards that can be of use. I'm going to list all the budget ones since you didn't really specify a limit. A fun way you can win though with a lot of manipulation is Approach of the Second Sun!

There are plenty of cards that can help, but hope this small tidbit helps!

No worries, tutors are there to make the deck more consistent. Some says tutors ruins the game as it makes it too linear but it's all in the different play groups for house rules! It just all depends on how you use them, but aside from that there are other cards you can use as well.

Some cards that are just great overall are like:

There is just so much you can abuse :P

Have you thought about using cards like Wargate? It's a card that can be useful at any point of the game. Especially if you use a lot of flicker effects you can pay x=3 grab it back with Eternal Witness, grab it back with E-Wit, use it again to tutor out for something else. Favorite Bant card of all time.

Some additional cards that can be cosidered:

Hope these help!

Here are some easy swaps when you have the chance.

Voidwielder and the other subpar bounce creatures for either AEther Adept or Man-o'-War or Reflector Mage or all three!

Scholar of Stars for Mulldrifter

Fogwalker for Frost Lynx although honestly I'd cut it when I get the chance.

Spell Burst for Forbid but that's pretty expensive, Insidious Will is a lot better or you could go full protection and go for Swan Song or Dispel

Enlightened Ascetic for War Priest of Thune or Leonin Relic-Warder

Fleeting Memories for New Perspectives though again, I'd cut this when I get the chance.

Divine Favor for literally anything else but I'll say Flickering Ward

Meteorite and Manalith for Chromatic Lantern and Coldsteel Heart. I don't think you need a subpar card like Meteorite when you have infinite blinks.

Why Homarid Explorer? Seems like an odd choice. Again, infinite blinks will win with literally anything so why not play card that synergies with your deck more? How about Deadeye Navigator which is a stupid card and a back up brago? Or Venser, Shaper Savant to bounce all the lands.

That's the biggest piece of advice I'd give you. You have a lot fo random mill that doesn't synergies with your commander like Psychic Corrosion. I'd see about removing that.

Finally 33 lands is kinda low. I aim for at least 36, maybe even 38

BrandonJamesCAC on Should Teferi be banned

4 weeks ago

I normally don't chime in on Standard card discussions because I only play Modern. But.... Teferi, in a vacuum, may even be better than JTMS. If I'm building control in Modern, I am strongly leaning towards Teferi over Jace.

He costs 3. Any way people want to spin it, it doesn't matter. He costs 3. Period.

Gideon Ally of Zendikar is a phenomenal card. But I don't think comparing him to Jace and Teferi is quite accurate. But again, I don't play standard.

As to whether he should be banned, ennnhhhhh... probably not but they banned friggin Reflector Mage for God's sake. A 2/3 for 3 that bounces..... maybe the lamest banning ever.

I hope they ban Teferi though so he slides to about 10 bucks

NV_1980 on Aminatou blink!!!

Thanks for asking us to comment on your deck; we're honored :) We've not used Animatou as a commander before, but we are familiar with the use of Brago, King Eternal in that role. Here are some of the cards that determined game-outcomes for us in that deck:

  • Stonehorn Dignitary; blinking this stops any deck that relies on combat damage dead in its tracks.
  • Clever Impersonator; with all that blinking going on, you can copy whatever is the most powerful permanent on the field at any given time.
  • Reflector Mage; by blinking this, you can greatly reduce in strength any deck that relies on its commander to win.
  • Azor, the Lawbringer; together with blinking mechanisms, this is one of the best control options we've ever seen. The ability to prevent others from casting non-permanent spells is often game-winning.

Some cards we'd remove to make room for all this:

  • Ashen Rider; it's powerful for sure, but you already have many cheaper ways of removal incorporated and it's just so expensive to cast.
  • Rune-Scarred Demon; great tutor, yet you already have many cheaper ones and your deck already has plenty of options to draw more cards and this particular creature is rather expensive to cast.

In case you need any more ideas, here's the link to our Brago deck. Good luck with the deck.

With kind regards,

Mrs and Mr NV_1980

Played against this deck extensively. It's combo has the potential to be REALLY FAST. When it doesn't, Reflector Mage screws up your tempo so bad, it can be hard to recover. Total pain in the ass.
