"Am I not Tutor'y enough for your Tutor Club?" A consistent turn 5-7 Combo deck for Aminatou, the Fateshifter !

Am I not tutor'y enough for your Tutor Club?

This deck runs 13 tutors (ie cards that allow you to search your deck for a card and might be limited by a certain criteria such as its converted mana cost (CMC) or even card type. all of these are done to find combo pieces. this deck can be quite annoying, opponents will give you no room for error, going after your pieces. This deck wins usually by playing all the pieces on the same turn if its possible.

The deck wins with:

Eldrazi Displacer + Peregrine Drake + any appropriate Many Sink/combo (turn 5-10 win) + mana sink/combo. Or Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale to create infinite Mana and win with an appropriate Mana sink/combo

Altar of the Brood , Aminatou, the Fateshifter and Felidar Guardian (which is my favorite combo of the deck) this also can be done with Altar of the Brood , Deadeye Navigator and Cloud of Faeries .

Approach of the Second Sun , this combo is obvious however you can cast it twice in one turn if you know what you're doing with an appropriate mana infinite, and using Demonic Tutor or something to put it in ur hand OR countering it and flickering Archaeomancer or by using Venser, Shaper Savant and then casting it again from hand. Well this combo is pretty cheap to pull off, it's relatively easy to do and even if you are thwarted in your efforts to pull it off, more than likely in the next two turns you are going to set off another combo. And it's nice to have various combos with this Commander in this deck because you will approach whatever combo is appropriate depending on your starting hand.

You can also win with using infinite mana and using Walking Ballista , this can be easily achieved due to the tutors for artifacts such as enlightened tutor, Trinket Mage or Fabricate . If you do not have those cards, you can tutor for them with an appropriate transmute ability on a card or you can use card:Mystic tutor. This Deck practically plays itself sometimes

Blasting Station + Liliana, Death's Majesty + Felidar Guardian ; this combo basically sacrifices felidar Guardian to deal 1 damage via blasting station and then Liliana will bring felidar back, you then flicker Liliana out, sacrifice felidar Guardian to deal 1 damage, bring him back with Liliana and rinse and repeat until it is done.

Recently I decided to take my last deck: Aminatou Flickering Queen into a different direction since i was sick of losing. The now deck focuses on being a more control/combo oriented play to survive in the game with several combos and win-cons. This deck is interested in either winning really quick, or is set for the long game if it doesn't top deck.

You can transmute cards such as muddle the mixture to obtain demonic tutor, which can be used to pull any card in the deck. Similar things can be done with other transmute cards to pull tutors or combo pieces.

Once your meta gets used to this deck you can play combo pieces that you do not wish to pursue as distractions for bait so that people can use the removal spells on a card that you don't care about. So that when the time comes and you play your combo, people will not have what they need to stop you.

This is my go to deck for winning in commander. It is great on 1v1, its great even a 6 man pod.

Note, I have taken out the Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith as it doesnt improve existing combos, while it DOES create Infinite mana, there are a few issues:

  1. if it is disrupted, it is hard to recover from as this Combo holds not a single synergy with any other combos such as flickering or infinite etb.
  2. It only creates Colorless mana, so if I misplay I don't have the colors I need to Cast a spell.
  3. rings of brighthearth kinda is an expensive card and id rather use it in a deck that uses it with more synergy.
  4. while YES i have a few transmute cards and tutors that i could use to get these, there are plenty of things that could prevent this combo from going off. and in those situations, its harder to get mana from this by flickering one of the pieces.

Basically I wanted more utility and ease of access if and when a combo gets delayed or disrupted. and Giant Whale and Pristine Talisman help me out. Giant Whale has synergy with Eldrazi Displacer, Felidar Guardian, Aminatou, Dead-eye Navigator. Pristine Talisman helps in small ways such as minor life gain and mana. I do understand this puts my Average CMC a bit higher due to Giant Whale but I believe this deck will benefit from these changes. Mainly I want to survive the 3 man pod tournaments that my friend is going to be holding in the future.
