Stonehorn Dignitary Discussion

How is Slithermuse not a more popular card in Aminatou decks? Only discovered it today and Wow...just Wow.
Anyway, I've been playing Amin for months now and the deck is finally to the point of being able to hold it's own against 75% level decks. Some friendly advice
2: You need to drop your average CMC by at least .75. Mine was too slow at 3.81, which is significantly lower than your current build. Once I lost some of the vanity cards (side-eyes Yennet) and played lower cost spells it was much easier to control the board using ETB triggers from blinks. When cutting cards ask yourself "is it removal? Is it card draw? Is it ramp? Does blinking it do anything?" if the answer is no, cut it.
3: You need a win condition. Maybe I'm missing something but I don't quite see what yours is other than maybe swinging with flying beaters.

I've been playing Animatou for about 4 months now. Good build. A little Vanilla (every Animatou deck looks like this at some point). Unless your meta is casual I'd suggest dropping the CMC and losing some of the ways to combo off (Peregrine Drake, Deadeye Nav) in favour of finding cheap ways to tutor your Altar Trinket Mage and protect the combo Silence . I'd also lose Azor (who appears great but is not that good in practice) in favour of Stonehorn Dignitary who provides protection from combat.

Thanks for the comments!
I've seen Phyrexian Ingester and Duplicant, and they certainly do work. The reason they aren't in is because I already have 7 removal cards which can only affect creatures, 3.5 of which kill all of them anyway (Luminate Primordial is the .5).
Stonehorn Dignitary is definitely powerful. It's maybe one to try out, I'm worried about maybe it being too powerful.
I was originally designing the deck to be mostly functional without relying on Roon, so I left out his specific enablers like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Thousand-Year Elixir, and Illusionist's Bracers. Some of these may find a way in if there are blink cards that don't pan out (I'm looking at you Mistmeadow Witch).
I tried to get a mix of green land ramp and artifacts, since there are some possible synergies with the artifacts (Brago, King Eternal especially, but also Felidar Guardian, Flickerwisp, Glimmerpoint Stag, Ghostly Flicker might rarely untap a signet). Maybe Explosive Vegetation/Circuitous Route might make it in later with Azorius Guildgate.
I wish I could play Soul of the Harvest, Sphinx of Uthuun, AND Prime Speaker Zegana. But then I start to worry about consistency and curve, 1 out of 3 sounds like a fair compromise. And you've changed my mind about which one, I'll put Prime Speaker in and pull Soul out.
Planar Guide is very unique. One shot telegraphed instant speed delay flicker for ALL creatures. Can work like a fog. Can backfire against other ETB creatures. Also does Homeward Path. Wraths tokens. Undoes Ixidron. I'm having a hard time evaluating this, cool card.
Mnemonic Wall is what I would consider a core card in the deck *facepalm. Now I just have to make room. I'm very surprised it does not appear on the EDHREC page.
Minion Reflector I like, and also the new Bramble Sovereign. Sort of like Panharmonicon, but for 2 mana each time. It's just unclear how to make room (and also I'm already over budget, sorry Bramble Sovereign).
Thanks again for the kind words :)

Your deck looks really complete, even being on a budget. I'll just leave a couple suggestions from my own Roon deck.
While expensive to cast, Phyrexian Ingester just eats stuff every time you flicker him. So much removal.
Stonehorn Dignitary can really stonewall an aggressive opposing deck and buy you some time to take over the game.
Lastly, I included some ways to get extra activations from Roon, if you're in the market for that: Illusionist's Bracers

Replied to your Reddit post, here's all the cards I mentioned there that would serve you well here: Archaeomancer, Birthing Pod, Bramble Sovereign, Clever Impersonator, Deadeye Navigator, Duplicant, Eldrazi Displacer, Farhaven Elf, Gilded Drake, Glen Elendra Archmage, Karmic Guide, Lavinia of the Tenth, Mystic Snake, Phyrexian Metamorph, Recruiter of the Guard, Reflector Mage, Reveillark, Solemn Simulacrum, Spellseeker, Stonehorn Dignitary, Venser, Shaper Savant & Wood Elves

Collected Company can also be a great asset, perhaps with it you drop Master Splicer, Soul's Attendant, Stonehorn Dignitary, Conjurer's Closet, Acidic Slime and Thragtusk, and add more Blade Splicers, Knight of Autumn, and 1 mana dorks, as well as Aether Vial, the deck can be super efficient!

In my meta I find that I am unable to leverage Stonehorn Dignitary politically as well as find it obsolete once my flicker engine is removed. Knight-Captain of Eos is a better alternative which for all purposes achieve the same goal. You can leverage it better by just having it on the field without any flicker engine and replenish its tokens whenever you're out of tokens. Also, with infinite blinks, you can get infinite tokens as another way to end the game.

how did this let you put two Stonehorn Dignitarys in there?
