Trust me I'm trying to listen I'm just talking out loud when I ask something and yes I have yet to be a control player so coming from you I'm all ears just asking something when it comes to mind thats all.... Also if I cut back on a walker or two and their support what is you thoughts on a FEW miracle cards sense theres so many ways to set up top deck the two cards I think of instantly are Entreat the Angels and Terminus again I'm not trying to go in several directions its just I'm remembering cards that where awsome in standard at the time etc.

I think its applications in legacy are better: instead of holding up 1 Mana for a 2 drop, we can just play Hexdrinker or Pelt Collector and add to the board instead.

Modern is not the best format to interact in, unfortunately. If one is really concerned about blue decks, they can play Thrun, the Last Troll now that Supreme Verdict sees more play than Terminus .

This deck could use a Coat of Arms and a Brainstorm . You might also want to invest in Primevals' Glorious Rebirth . Terminus is also a fine option for this deck. I play a Sphinx tribal deck myself so trust me when I say this: you need counter spells. Rewind , Unwind , Dissolve and Put Away are great options. Elixir of Immortality is also a worthy investment.

I hope this has helped. If you want some inspiration, you're welcome to check out my own Sphinx deck.

ToshiroU on Aminatou Staxshifter (Esper Stax Primer)

Hey SynergyBuild Dango and IAmTheWraith,

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:

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 ;-)

Hmm looking through your decklist, I feel like you could profit from some more early ramp, and from cutting some win more cards. I like the inclusion of Armageddon etc, however Ghaji just feels like you don't really need him.

I would cut Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Child of Alara , Gahiji, Honored One , Sliver Queen , Terminus , Hallowed Burial , Merciless Eviction , Pillar of Origins , Herald's Horn , Door of Destinies , Darksteel Forge , Call to the Kindred .

Instead I would Play Nature's Lore , Three Visits , Search for Tomorrow , Skyshroud Claim , Vampiric Tutor , Fellwar Stone , Fact or Fiction , Intruder Alarm , Living Death , Patriarch's Bidding , Teferi's Protection , Mana Drain

Gladly! My sideboard is kinda specified to decks i see, for example back to nature is good against bogles but not much else, so adjust your own sideboard!

As a rule of thumb i switch out creature cards for crature cards in the sideboard, and non-creature for non-creature.

The reason for this is that you are mainly a creature aggro deck, where creatures are star and pumpspells either help; finish ( Aspect of Hydra ) / protect ( Vines of Vastwood ). This means that if you are siding in "protection" i.e. Relic of Progenitus i would consider switching out vines of vastwood. Same goes for Dismember , for if you need to remove creatures from your opponent they're most likely removal-light.

Feed the Clan can also be switched with vines, for the simple reason that most our creatures are beefy enough to withstand damage-removal, and this is mainly for dealing with burn. Collector Ouphe is mainly for affinity and here you could for example swap out scavenging ooze lest you desperatly need lifegain. They dont rely on their graveyard.

As you see i often swap out vines, i much consider it the weakest card and most flexible. but then again it depends on the matchup and personal taste. Consider your need for protection, explosiveness, interaction, and so on. Sometimes you might not want to switch out all the copies of a certain card, but rather take out different cards.

Lastly i want to say that you should probably make slight mainboard changes aswell: Kalonian Tusker is a good alternative for scavenging ooze, if you need more power earlier. The number of Rancor , Vines of Vastwood and Aspect of Hydra can be interchanged, and even switched out for Blossoming Defense or Dismember .

The onedrop slot is also very adjustable: Dryad Militant shines against certain decks (mostly storm and maybe dredge, and maybe snaocaster decks)and Hexdrinker against others. Same goes for Experiment One and Pelt Collector . The two latter should only be split in a 4-2 or 3-3 in my opinion because they cant evolve one another.

Lastly if there are certain cards you dont want/own in the sideboard here are alternatives:

Wheel of Sun and Moon : a good replacement for Relic of Progenitus , as it gives two devotion and is a continous denying effect. Whats already in their graveyard stays there though.

Oxidize alternativ for Natural State if you dont need to take out enchantmens.

Thrun, the Last Troll : Very good against control, but i have had a though time against Terminus lately which wrecks him. Pro tip, there seems to be some changes coming up to UW control, and this might mean Terminus is being phased out, so do keep your eye out for thrun.

Hope this helps! Reply if you need more help or anything was unclear ;D

I feel like the biggest payoffs, skred and dead of winter, are too good to ignore, and given how much of the deck likes playing at instant speed thanks to scrying sheets/fetch, I'd be looking for more traditional instants/flash creatures to keep it going.

Treefolk isn't amazing outside of limited- Dungrove Elder doesn't see play and its almost strictly better. Just cut most of the creatures for a reliable control/draw package.

There are a bunch of scrying tools that look pretty good in the lists I've seen, so Terminus is a strong possibility- I'd even look at going full Counterbalance with it.
