Megalomania Deckspert

I’m very much into combo decks especially ones that win games really fast. If you want to help me out, I am currently working on the deck below. Your inputs and upvotes are highly appreciated.

it can if you have the right pieces. all you need is chrome mox, a colored card to imprint, mana vault, isochron scepter, dramatic reversal, and a land. What you do is chrome mox imprinting the colored card, tap for mana vault, tap for isochron scepter with dramatic reversal, play your land, use the 1 mana floating from mana vault and tap the land to activate isochron scepter. now you have mana vault and chrome mox to be able to go infinite with

I dunno, guy. Maybe you’re right but it just doesn’t look like a deck i’d bring to a cEDH table. Getting Aminatou out is far from ensuring a win and I don’t think the deck is even aiming to win quick. My doubt comes mostly from the lack of a dependable control package which I think the deck needs considering how slow it tends to start.

I would not want to get into a pissing contest with you over this. I am even doubtful if my own Aminatou deck would qualify as cEDH-worthy. But if you were to go against cEDH staple decks like Shimmer Zur, Breakfast and Flash Hulk, I would not bet my house on your deck or any Aminatou deck for that matter.

Ikeno - I will put that under consideration. Thanks!

What is your meta like? I’m finding it hard to believe that you can get Aminatou’s “ultimate” in a cEDH environment especially with your choice of control cards which is somewhat suspect. Even your mana base is sub-optimal.

I would have to agree with l7lancer that labeling this as a cEDH deck would be a terrible misrepresentation.

The problem with building a deck around Aminatou’s -6 is that it requires a ton of effort to set up without really winning you the game. I would much rather combo off or add pieces that will advance the deck’s game-play instead.

Hate bears are cards that prevent other players from playing specific types of cards. Gaddock Teeg, Null Rod, and Stony Silence are some examples. If you want to lock people down, maybe use cards like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Blind Obedience, etc. Again, read up on stax. Not saying it is the only way to make the deck but it seems that is where you want to take it.

Ditto on the Felidar Guardian suggestion. I am also working on a similar list except it is less superfriends and more stax.

August 14, 2018 10:52 a.m.

I was also looking at Azor after seeing it in other lists. I am just unsure if I still have room for it. Blind Obedience is already in the list. Thank you!

August 14, 2018 10:38 a.m.

I was expecting hate bears and stuff due to the deck’s name. Looking forward to the detailed deck description. For the meantime, I hope you can take a look at my list which I believe to be equally un-fun.

August 14, 2018 8:40 a.m.

Just go stax, bro. Read up on stax decks and go from there.

August 13, 2018 8:52 p.m.

I did have Notion Thief and Windfall in the earlier iterations of the deck but it (the deck) simply isn’t fast enough to really maximize Windfall without Notion Thief which is also underwhelming without enough wheels or forced card-draw effects.

We never use Chain just to discard hands. We use it to permanently gain board advantage after setting up a couple of stax pieces in play.

August 13, 2018 11:37 a.m.

I actually like Chain of Fog. It has a good chance of wrecking hands which puts us in a great advantage assuming we already have some stax pieces in play. People tend to not break the chain until everyone is out of cards to discard. Lol

For what reason do you need to lower the ave cmc to specifically less than 2?

August 13, 2018 10:52 a.m.

Panharmonicon lets you get more out of the ETB effects. Felidar Guardian is pretty much an auto-include in Aminatou decks as well as Altar of the Brood.

Entreat the Dead becomes so much better with Insidious Dreams.

My list relies more on flicker effects but you might find some pieces there that are useful in yours. Please do check it out.

Ghostway, Eerie Interlude, Ghostly Flicker and Displace are some flicker spells you might want to try. I only use Ghostly Flicker but I think the others would work well here

Imperial Seal and Cruel Tutor would work here with the top decking theme.

Another card you might be interested in is Soothsaying. It fixes your top deck and also gives you an option to shuffle your library.

I especially like the quote at the beginning of the description. It was the main reason for the upvote. Lol. Would you mind telling me where it was from? And if you have the time, can I solicit some comments for my own Aminatou list? Thank you.

I would replace the current planeswalkers with ones that can serve as your win con when played alongside Aminatou, Felidar Guardian and Panharmonicon or just have better synergy with the entire deck in general. In my list, I have Kaya, Ghost Assassin and Venser, the Sojourner. I would also go for Sea Gate Oracle or Augur of Bolas instead of Twilight Prophet.

I think you can get some ideas from my list which I hope you don't mind if I post here. It's Aminatou: Nihilistic Tendencies (Stax).

I am of the same opinion with regards to big creatures and am honestly not that big of a fan of the manifest mechanic.

If you want something that is a bit on the mean side, my stax-flavored aminatou deck might be to your liking.

Panharmonicon is in most of the Aminatou lists that I have seen, including mine.

You have a lot of big creatures here. If you want to cheat them into the game, some decks use Mastery of the Unseen and the manifest mechanic.

August 12, 2018 2:36 a.m.

I’m not very good with budget decks but I think the following cards would be great here:

Flicker Effects - Ghostway, Ghostly Flicker, Eerie Interlude, Felidar Guardian

Manifest - Mastery of the Unseen

ETB Effects - Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse, Rishadan Brigand, Oath of Jace, and Archaeomancer

Utility - Oath of Teferi and Panharmonicon

I’m also building a similar deck. Maybe you can take a look at it so we can exchange ideas.

Great list! A few changes I would suggest would be to replace Sower of Discord with Rune-Scarred Demon, Aminatou’s Augury with Insidious Dreams, Elspeth with Kaya, Ghost Assassin (so much value!), and maybe add some more mana rocks like Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance.

My list has some cards you might also want to try. It’s (Brago) stax-oriented so I think some creatures there would work here too.

Considering the number of planeswalkers you have in the deck, maybe add The Chain Veil too? I only have a couple in mine but felt being able to abuse Aminatou’s abilities is enough to give it a spot in the deck or at least some testing.
