Scroll Rack Discussion
1 day ago

Also, I read why you chose to leave out Scroll Rack and I think you make a great argument. One question though, have you thought of its combo with Urza? Together, you can essentially get a new hand. Rack your hand away, shuffle your library with Urza, repeat each turn for a new hand. I totally understand why we don't care about top-deck manipulation, but full or partial hand manipulation is nasty in my opinion. I know Urza takes 5 mana to shuffle your deck and that is huge for cEDH, but I also know we are running every fetch land available to us. Pay 1 Life, shuffle your garbage away :)

Any chance that Scroll Rack might be a worthy include for top-deck manipulation?

Solonqo: Having the main plan to get your planeswalkers to ultimate as a win con is never a reliable or a good strategy in edh since it's such a creature-centric and removal heavy format. How the combo works is with God-Eternal Kefnet and Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Scroll Rack in play, I will put Time Warp back on top of my library. On my upkeep, kefnet's spell duplication ability will trigger and I will reveal Time Warp in which I will cast the kefnet copy and put the real one back in my hand. Repeat ad nauseaum.

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 ;-)

Currently building a Yuriko list myself. Depends on whether you want to go Ninja tribal, or more competitive. If you’re going to build a tribal/semi-tribal deck, just keep in mind a few things.
For starters, your unblock-able and evasive creatures eventually become better ninjas with a conspiracy effect, then the actual ninjitsu ninjas. So I wouldn’t run ALL of the ninjas, unless you really want to. I run like 9, and that is considered a high amount for the deck. Modern Horizons has added decent additions to the tribe. If it weren’t for that, I might run even less.
Conspiracy effects and top-deck manipulation are extremely important. A lot of lists have Xenograft but I actually think in a lot of cases, Standardize and Unnatural Selection are better. At the very least, don’t sleep on those, even if you include xenograft.
Far as top deck manipulation, this deck really wants Scroll Rack . It’s expensive, but it’s too good to not have. There are more reasonable cards like Crystal Ball and Future Sight you can use. Insidious Dreams can help you win on the spot, if enough ninjas get through. Make sure you have four or five cards, with a total CMC of 40+ in the deck, so when you use this card, you just murder everyone.
Lastly, this deck doesn’t too much care what other players are doing, so you can keep just a basic removal package. If you have counter-magic, generally you wanna only use it, to protect yourself when you’re going for the win. Or if you know an opponent is absolutely going to win right then, and there, Yuriko comes out of nowhere so you don’t really need to control the rest of the board.
If you end up running Doomsday you prob need a decent tutor package too. She will generate a lot of hate, once your pod is familiar with her, so protection will probably be important, but I haven’t figured out the best options for the deck, yet.

Looks like a solid Yuriko list. A couple of suggestions for your consideration though. Back when I still had my Yuriko deck I loved using the Eldritch Moon Eldrazi: Emrakul, the Promised End , Vexing Scuttler , Elder Deep-Fiend , etc. They all have huge mana costs, but each cost can be reduced. It's especially fun to sac Yuriko to the emerge eldrazi, then bounce the emerge eldrazi back to hand with Yuriko, and then repeat the process.
Here is my old list if you want to take a look: Pocket Sand v2
