I can believe i forgot to recommend a few cards to get more uses out of your walkers

Oath of Teferi, The Chain Veil, Rings of Brighthearth, and Teferi, Temporal Archmage.

And Strionic Resonator is a worse panharmonica, but still gives more ETB effects

Well hello there...

bushido_man96: Thanks man! Don't forget to upvote!


So I've never heard of Tidal Force, seems pretty good, but I don't think it's what I'm really looking for, I will probably put it in the maybeboard, just in case.

Arcane Laboratory Is not going in the deck. I feel like it hinders me too much.

Damping Sphere is fun. Maybeboard for now.

Stifle and Disallow seem decent. Again, Maybeboard for now until I can find the slots.

Teferi, Temporal Archmage Seems like it may be decent. Maybeboard??

Been considering adding Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir+Knowledge Pool so my opponents can't cast spells...

I disagree that Arcane Laboratory makes it difficult for you to establish your lock. Sure, it hinders you, but you're running a gigantic number of counterspells - it limits how your opponents use the extra cards you give them, and means you only have to hold up one counterspell per opponent to fully lock down the game. It's a vicious, vicious control card, especially since you're giving your opponent more resources with Kami. I'd also consider Damping Sphere for a similar reason.

I'd personally run Stifle and/or Disallow here, because they shut off enemy fetch lands and are an unexpected form of control (since many people see their triggers as inviolable).

Have you considered Teferi, Temporal Archmage as additional an way to maintain a lock with Stasis? Or Teferi's Realm to perma-phase things out of existence? If you're willing to control into the long-game, Tidal Force also does wonders to keep the flowing for Stasis.

bscarrots I think Chain veil an be very strong in estrid, you can win straight away with enough enrampments. power artifact isnt needed. (you can -1 targeting chain veil, activate CV and +2 estrid)

I personally dont know what I would cut for it. you can definitely make it your main win condition for estrid with cards like Three Dreams/Heliod's Pilgrim/Open the Armory/etc. to grab your enrampments for the combo. And multipurpose cards to fetch the veil (Wargate/Enlightened Tutor/etc.) and can even pack Teferi, Temporal Archmage in the 99 as an alternate win condition.

SynergyBuild: He is best to have in play in this deck once you have Teferi, Temporal Archmage’s emblem in play that way you can activate Aminatou’s ability to blink during an opponents turn. That’s how I run it in my Aminatou deck anyhow.

SynergyBuild on Aminatou, the Combo Enabler! Part 1/4

That is fair, as I play cEDH with currently 4 decks, Captain Sisay Paradox Engine stax-combo, Animar, Soul of Elements Ancestral Statue combo, General Tazri Food Chain combo, and Teferi, Temporal Archmage The Chain Veil stax-combo. All Tier 1-1.5 decks, each that can win turn 1-3. That isn't to say games don't go long. Stax builds in general aim to win turn 5+ often, and two of those are tier 1 decks. To say that competitive EDh games don't go longer than turn 6, or simply rarely is strange for your playgroup/meta, and isn't the norm.

This deck isn't a high-tiered EDH deck though, so claiming that you want to play Altar of the Brood (a combo piece that isn't useful to cast early-game in cEDH) for competition is simply a incorrect assesment of the goal of this deck.

If you are worried that there is a small chance that when you have Felidar Guardian + Aminatou, the Fateshifter you don't have the mana to cast Altar of the Brood, you forget you could easily have flickered a land before casting Felidar Guardian to cast the altar, and then went off.

Simply put, though I personally think Altar is a good card for this deck, I also know that the way that you explained using it is incorrect, and that in many variants of the deck, it is the wrong choice.

Raesak While her ability does help break a stax lock, the easiest comparable commander would be Teferi, Temporal Archmage. With a -1 ability that can generate more mana than Estrid, the Masked's can when put into a normal deck not built around the commander, and card draw capabilities included, it is a clear winner, especially when considering it has much better combo. Bant colors and a lower cmc are all that Estrid, the Masked has, and I do not think that is enough to easily justify it in a better tier than tier 2.5. If it gets placed in tier 3 however, I will not be surprised.
