I hope it's not inappropriate to ask, but would you mind checking out my Animatou deck? I definitely took some inspiration from yours (Ixidron is amazing!) but it is not stax. I feel it could be more finely tuned. It's been really cool seeing the evolution of your deck!

Lusterblade that does sound interesting. I will need to think about it. Being able to flicker an MLD effect is great. I am a bit concerned about the cost though. I like the idea and I will try it. Thanks!

Interesting list. I would go with Parallax Wave instead of Tide though. And since you’re using Brago, I think the deck would benefit from less lands and more mana rocks like Talismans, Fellwar Stone, even Mana Vault and Thran Dynamo.

I also recommend you try Eldrazi Displacer. It’s quite good when you have enough sources of Wastes mana.

Read the original post. I thought you were asking if it was good “for” the format. My bad. Discard is good when used in conjuctiob with other strategies like stax. You just need to find the right cards like Burglar Rat.

shadow63 define what is good? Some people think infinite combos or combo decks in general are good for EDH since they add variety to the format. There are those who feel combo decks are bad for because they make games unfun for others. I’m not sure if that’s what you were asking or if you’re question is more on the viability of discarder decks in commander.

“Good” is such a relative term. It belongs with other BS criteria such as “fun” and “fair”. My group sticks with the existing banlist. It remains to be the most impartial rule we could think of.

Great list! Mine is a lot similar to this but has a bit of stax flavor to it. I think Kaya, Ghost Assassin and Venser, the Sojourner would be better planeswalkers for the deck. I am not a big fan of the Primordials. I feel they are over-costed for a creature that has a value dependent on the contents of other players' graveyards. If you're looking for a decent fatty, i'd go with Massacre Wurm.

Sorry about that. I was trying something out yesterday. I’m afraid there’s going to be a lot more of that in the coming weeks as i’m trying to sell some casual decks made from the cards that I have on hand. Figured the site would be the perfect way to show potential buyers (in my country) to see and playtest said decks before purchasing them. XD

lunchbox0818 I'm not convinced Plaguecrafter would work here since it also requires me to sacrifice a creature or a planeswalker. Unless I have other expendable creatures in play, it ends up in the graveyard. Not saying it's a bad card but it's not for this deck. I would recommend it to Muldrotha, the Gravetide players though.

October 9, 2018 12:23 a.m.

Bigant1 Thanks! Gonti is already in my maybeboard. It fits the flicker theme but I would much rather have ETB effects that are somewhat stax-related. Gonti doesn't do much to stifle my opponents' game.

That is certainly worth considering. I'll see if I can still fit the metamorph in the deck. I'm not quite sure what I can remove to slot it in yet as the current setup is working quite well.

October 7, 2018 9:18 p.m.

I’m using all three flicker spells in my deck. I like Ghostly Flicker since it can be used repeatedly in a single turn. It can also go infinite with Archaeomancer and Gilded Lotus.

You might also be interested in trying Leonin Relic-Warder. It provides a lot of useful interactions with the cards already in the deck.

October 7, 2018 12:11 a.m.

My deck went through a similar configuration. I took out Brago which hardly survives long enough to attack. I also added Ghostly Flicker which is able to hit artifacts, creatures and lands. You might also want to look into adding Parallax Wave. It has been very effective in my deck which is a lot similar to yours. Check it out if you have the time. I am sure we can help each other out.

Eldrazi Displacer seems like a good card here. Iona, Shield of Emeria too.

In my Aminatou deck, I am able to control the board using Parallax Wave and some flicker effects. You might want to explore this option. Leonin Relic-Warder would help as well.

Incoming comment on ScrubbinBubls deck.

Re-posting my current project for upvotes and other types of inputs. The theme is flicker and stax with Aminatou as commander. The goal is to make it good enpugh for competitive/semi-competitive play and, if possible, the best Aminatou deck on the interwebs. Lol

Less lands, more rocks, cheap draw engines like Wall of Omens and Sea Gate Oracle would do a lot of good for the deck. I have a similar deck which focuses on stax and flicker effects. You might want to take a look at it for some ideas.

October 3, 2018 5:21 a.m.

I see. That certainly adds a lot of difficulty to the game. Have you considered using the Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void combo? It’s the only thing I can think of that can kill everyone on the same turn while staying within your group’s “once per player, per turn” rule.

Oh, and just in case the stax route feels like a direction you’d consider exploring, i’d like to shamelessly recommend my list - Aminatou: Nihilistic Tendencies (Stax).

39 lands seems a bit excessive. You can lower that to around 34 and add more mana rocks if you are looking to speed things up. I use Panharmonicon and spells like Eerie Interlude, Ghostway and Ghostly Flicker in my Aminatou deck. They become really irritating especially if you have Archaeomancer in play.

October 2, 2018 12:28 a.m.

Are you prohibited from using a combination of cards that will result to an infinite combo or are they okay as long as you don't go infinite? Oath of Teferi and Panharmonicon would be great here even outside the infinite combos

Said on Brago the 100% ......

Sorry if it took me a while to get back to your request. If you're looking for more flicker effects, there's also Displace. I think Parallax Wave would also work as well here as it does in my Aminatou deck. You should definitely try it.

You might also want to improve your land base. Some fetches, Hallowed Fountain, and Sea of Clouds? I've also seen some guys use Hall of the Bandit Lord in Brago decks. That might be worth considering as well.

October 1, 2018 10:14 p.m.

Hey bud, thanks for the kind words on my wall. The Clever Impersonator combo is quite.. clever. lol. I found some questionable inclusions in your deck like Aura Thief, Trinket Mage, Land Tax and Academy Rector. Is Aura Thief a meta call? I wouldn't use it unless I was running something like Enchanted Evening in the deck. That would take you to a whole new direction though.

Trinket Mage, Land Tax and Academy Rector seems to have very limited targets in the deck. I think you can do away with these in favor of draw engines like Mulldrifter, Sea Gate Oracle and Trial of Knowledge.

If you're trying to slow opponents down, you could try cards like Aura of Silence and Blind Obedience.
