Sunblast Angel and Stonehorn Dignitary for a bit of combat control.

ZendikariWol on So, You Wanna Play Jund Yea? (Budget)

I knew what you meant by budget, Chasmolinker. A decent modern deck costs 500-2k$. I'm familiar with what not being casual is, I'm understand the modern meta and price tag, I just choose to reject that in favor of the play style I prefer.

And it's just that- the play style I prefer. Just me. I have a lot of friends who are super competitive. They consider it a fun challenge. I consider it an unnecessary deck building restriction. Are either of us totally right? No. Because both our arguments have some truth to them. In the end, we prioritize the joy that we get out of the game. For me, that's a game of commander with no combos and no stax! And for them, it's a game of pauper where they have tron out, a Stonehorn Dignitary , a Mnemonic Wall , and Ghostly Flicker in the graveyard.

TL;DR I understand and see the appeal in competitive, especially competitive modern. It's a nice cup of tea, but it's not my favorite. My comment was meant to poke fun and not to actually offend or criticize.

Woah - I had never seen Oracle en-Vec before.

I immediately think of Moment of Silence effects (of which you have one set with Orim's Chant ) but it seems like there's enough potential of having an opponent overcommit and then taking out their entire board with a one mana instant - to have it be worth it.

Festival , Stonehorn Dignitary in your second main phase, or Master Warcraft might all be good.

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

1: You need to be playing Lavinia of the Tenth and Stonehorn Dignitary

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!

@Deruvid

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).

I didn't think of Trostani's Summoner as a finisher, but she's probably better than Call for Unity. In she goes.

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).

@thebantwagon

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.

I'm avoiding tutors on purpose, otherwise Fierce Empath and Woodland Bellower are an excellent pair.

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.

Also expensive, but hilarious with Cathars' Crusade, Trostani's Summoner summons ALL the things. Be prepared to do maths.

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
