Megalomania on Aminatou - blink

Less lands, more rocks, cheap draw engines like Wall of Omens and Sea Gate Oracle would do a lot of good for the deck. I have a similar deck which focuses on stax and flicker effects. You might want to take a look at it for some ideas.

Megalomania on Aminatou, The Mid-Range Mini Mage

Hey bud, thanks for the kind words on my wall. The Clever Impersonator combo is quite.. clever. lol. I found some questionable inclusions in your deck like Aura Thief, Trinket Mage, Land Tax and Academy Rector. Is Aura Thief a meta call? I wouldn't use it unless I was running something like Enchanted Evening in the deck. That would take you to a whole new direction though.

Trinket Mage, Land Tax and Academy Rector seems to have very limited targets in the deck. I think you can do away with these in favor of draw engines like Mulldrifter, Sea Gate Oracle and Trial of Knowledge.

If you're trying to slow opponents down, you could try cards like Aura of Silence and Blind Obedience.

I want to add Bane of Progress. What would you cut from your list if Bane of Progress was not in the deck? I want to keep Caustic Caterpillar and Ainok Survivalist in my list. You are playing Reclamation Sage in place of Caustic Caterpillar.

If you could only play one of card between Surrack Dragonclaw, Urabrask the Hidden, and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, what would it be?

Is Sea Gate Oracle in your tuned list? Do you think it has a place in this list?

Iquasi, thanks for posting this list. Yours is one of a very few non combo (or minimal combo) Animar lists that is being actively updated.

I am not playing Ancestral Statue but am interested in making the deck efficient outside of combo.

Mana cards you are playing that I am not are Sol Ring, Burnished Hart, Lotus Cobra, Sakura-Tribe Elder, and Solemn Simulacrum.

Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Arbor Elf, Beastcaller Savant, Fyndhorn Elves, Rattleclaw Mystic, and Rishkar, Peema Renegade, were added to increase speed.

I am not playing Fabricate because of the absence of Ancestral Statue. Chord of Calling and Birthing Pod are also absent from my deck.

Survival of the Fittest is the only tutor I am playing that you are not.

Lightning Greaves, Sensei's Divining Top, Leyline of Anticipation, Balefire Dragon, Bane of Progress, Clever Impersonator, Reclamation Sage, and Surrack Dragonclaw were replaced by:

Caustic Caterpillar, Gilded Drake, Maelstrom Wanderer, Sea Gate Oracle, Spellseeker, Sylvan Safekeeper and Heroic Intervention.

Survival of the Fittest, Gilded Drake, Spellseeker, and Heroic Intervention are the top four cards I was surprised you are not playing. This excludes the fast mana cards you choose not to include.

What changes would you recommend to increase the efficiency of my deck without adding infinite combos?

SaberTech on Ancestral Animar

@IamSpeeding Yeah, 3 mana seems a little much to just draw a card. At that cost you would expect Generous Stray to be able to do a little more. It's a strictly worse Sea Gate Oracle. I'm surprised that it isn't a 2/2, you would think that as a green creature it would get an extra point to power over the Oracle in exchange for not being as good at digging into your library. Still, a cantrip is a cantrip, but I can't think of any cards in the deck that I would be inclined to take out for the Stray.

Your list is very similar to mine! I'm a fan of the route you're taking; my deck doesn't often win with combat either.

I was about to give 3 suggestions, but all 3 of those suggestions are already in your maybeboard... so nevermind! Instead, I'll recommend some of the minor stars of the deck.

Swan Song, Counterspell, and Arcane Denial - some of the best low CMC counterspells in EDH aside from Force of Will and Mana Drain. Maybe not run all 3, but I think running 1 or 2 of these wouldn't be a bad idea.

Supreme Verdict - Best boardwipe in your colors. If you want to get fancy you could Ghostway or Eerie Interlude and then wipe the board for a one-sided wipe. Not sure how creature heavy your meta is, but I like to have a minimum of 2-3 board wipes in every deck I build.

Sea Gate Oracle - Might be a good replacement for Wall of Blossoms. One CMC more, but lets you look at two cards instead of just one. Definitely a preference call, but it's a card I'm a fan of.

Good luck with the deck!

Megalomania on Glory to the butterfly child

I would replace the current planeswalkers with ones that can serve as your win con when played alongside Aminatou, Felidar Guardian and Panharmonicon or just have better synergy with the entire deck in general. In my list, I have Kaya, Ghost Assassin and Venser, the Sojourner. I would also go for Sea Gate Oracle or Augur of Bolas instead of Twilight Prophet.

I think you can get some ideas from my list which I hope you don't mind if I post here. It's Aminatou: Nihilistic Tendencies (Stax).

kingyfyvf on Grixis Wizard Commander Help

This is my first commander deck I got a few months back and have built it up slowly but am in dire need of help finishing it. I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine. I like how it can focus on the graveyard but the only strategies I have for it is the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank set and the Sphinx's Tutelage. I want to focus it on wizards mill where my wizards can help me use my graveyard getting back my instants and sorceries that help mill and draw using Sphinx's Tutelge. Other creatures can be added like Consecrated Sphinx but i'd like for creatures to be mostly wizard. Any help is appreciated.
