I think it's important to note that Test of Metal is mostly regarded as non-canon at this point for various reasons.

Also, as for extra ravnica-based stories after RTR, other than the one where the gatewatch sits around Jace's Sanctum and Dovin Baan shows up, the one with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest was pretty important. I've forgotten enough details that I probably can't summarize it well, but Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord's second in command guy gets a note from the Kraul, who are pretty downtrodden when it comes to politics within the guild, and the Kraul kill him or something. Also Vraska the Unseen and Mazirek are apparently best friends and she's gonna make them the top of the guild when she gains control of it. Wasn't there a bit at the end of Ixalan block where Bolas had kidnapped Jarad to fulfill his promise to make Vraska the Golgari Guildmaster?

Here's the link to the Mazirek article if anyone's interested, since I probably got it very wrong. https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/magic-story/pride-kraul-2017-05-31

So I see you have Harmless Offering and Donate and a few of the good targets for them, but what about the O.G Lich, Forbidden Crypt, Immortal Coil, or Nefarious Lich? The lich's are probably a bit hard on the manabase, but Coil is easy to kill people with: 1 Bojuka Bog or Tormod's Crypt suddenly turns into Door to Nothingness.

For additional loss spells, Death Wish does literally nothing in commander except lose half your life. Seems decent.

Also, Nivmagus Elemental and Platinum Angel are good ways to stop your own copies of these bad spells if you find them necessary.

Too bad you aren't in White or Transcendence and Fractured Identity + Phage the Untouchable would be perfect.

Anyway, cool deck! Didn't have time to really look at everything, but thought I'd throw some suggestions at you.

MegaMatt13: The change control deck was my original idea for Aminatou, but after getting the precon and playing with her I switched to the Superfriends deck. It was private, but I set it to public:


This is Ours: Aminatou EDH

.

Notably, my list isn't really superfriends YET, but that's where I would like it to be someday. Still need to pick up Venser, the Sojourner, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin among others.

I think Ashen Rider, while 1 more mana, is probably always better than Angel of Despair (unless you have Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign in play I guess, but she doesn't seem great here anyway). Rider exiles and stops people from Murdering it, requiring exile to deal with it if they dont want their board messed with.

My list has been experimenting with a minor superfriends theme. I don't know if you want to go that direction, but with Aminatou, the Fateshifter, Oath of Teferi, and any other PW, you can activate that other PWs abilities 6 times in one turn. For example, with Elspeth, Sun's Champion, you could -3 to wrath the board, then +1 for 3 soldiers. Aminatou uses her -1 to blink Elspeth, resetting activations. +1 twice for 6 more soldiers. Do it again. +1 twice more to end up with a clear board and 15 1/1 soldier tokens. Also, if you have multiple PWs out, The Chain Veil becomes disgusting (but not infinite). Activate chain veil, -1 Aminatou to blink the chain veil, activate again, -1, activate, -1, etc, essentially reading ", Remove a loyalty counter from Aminatou: You can activate PW abilites an additional time this turn." With any other planeswalker, you can likely immediately ultimate them or just accrue insane value by activating multiple times in a turn. At worst, it still acts like Oath of Teferi, letting you activate Aminatou multiple times a turn.

Another card in my list that I've been really enjoing is Thalia's Lancers. In your list it already grabs Brago, King Eternal (likely the best card in the deck), as well as Yennett, Venser, Shaper Savant, both PW you currently have, Oath of Teferi (and The Chain Veil if you add that), and Gonti, Lord of Luxury. And if you decide to add it, you can add a toolbox of effects for it to search for: A wrath in Urza's Ruinous Blast, lands in Minamo, School at Water's Edge and similar, more PWs, etc.

I would also suggest adding the one mana cycling lands, e.g Barren Moor (or if you don't want those, there are also the Amonkhet cycling dual lands, e.g Irrigated Farmland). They may not seem like much, but casting Terminus, Temporal Manipulation, etc at instant speed is very strong. Put it on top with Aminatou and pass the turn, holding up a cycling land to miracle it off the top, similar to Sensei's Divining Top, and they have little downside.

philktoken8998 (Note: i could be wrong bc I dont really play legacy) I know Brightling was being tested in Legacy Death&Taxes, but did anyone ever show any reason it's better than Mirran Crusader or whatever other card you cut for it? I've heard a lot of people saying it was pretty lackluster in the deck. Based on the Price Chart for Brightling, it has basically only gone down since it spiked

When Battlebond released, MTGGoldfish made an Estimated Value article like usual, but keep in mind this was right after set release. The important thing to remember from this article is that the reprints hit a floor ~3-6 months after release and then rebound in price. Currently, its been about 2 months since release, meaning cards have the opportunity to drop further, but still rebound in price. The important bit for your pull is that True-Name Nemesis will only go up, as reprinting is VERY unlikely and it is near the low point for price. That said, if you wanna buy a couple boxes of Guilds of Ravnica when it comes out, selling it is still a fine idea as the price increase will probably be pretty slow since its an extremely expensive foil already.

Anyway, the part I'm more interested here is the current Estimated Value of a box, as I mostly forgot how valueable this set is and I bet you can pick up boxes for pretty cheap. According to MTGStocks, the EV of a pack is $4.28 on average and the EV of a box of Battlebond is $154.08 on Average, meaning if you can get a box at (or likely below) MSRP you'll probably get your money back unless you are extremely unlucky like me and pull 3 Grothama, All-Devouring and all your rares are Goblin Razerunners. This is just the average EV (when based on Market price it drops a little btw), but remember that most of these cards have nowhere to go but up, especially the mythics, and then you've got the crazy lottery cards like True-Name Nemesis. Not only is True-Name an absurd amount of money, but Based on this 7 foil mythics are worth $60 or more, and after that, even the cheapest one, Grothama, All-Devouring is a $15 foil. There are also a few in the $50 range, a few in the $40s, etc. 6 rares have foils worth over $45, and after that there are a few more surprisingly expensive foil rares such as Archon of Valor's Reach at $25. And dont forget that Partners come in pairs, and foil partners are in foil pairs! That means if you pull the $44 foil Rowan Kenrith you also got the $48 foil Will Kenrith. If you pull the $13 foil Pir, Imaginative Rascal, you also got the $10 foil Toothy, Imaginary Friend.

Overall, I think buying a box of Battlebond is probably worth it just for value, and even more if you can convince enough people to come draft it with you (with you of course taking all the cards if you bought the box yourself). And Battelbond boxes are still easily available for under $100 with little effort, and if you want to fight a bidding war on eBay, there are currently auctions for way under $100, but obviously those prices are going up before the auction ends.

User:DemonDragonJ I don't think that they mean he's from Dominaria, but rather pointing out he only exists in one possible future (the only card he's referenced on is Sarcomite Myr from Future Sight) that we were able to see BECAUSE OF the rifts on Dominaria. Based on the "who melds flesh and metal in glorious harmony" line it's pretty obvious he is on New Phyrexia, however he might not even exist in this timeline at all or maybe only exists in the future and isn't alive yet.

I know each commander set comes with a little blurb about each commander, have they released those online yet or do we have to wait to actually purchase the decks to see them? They sometimes tell the plane.

Maybe consider Dictate of the Twin Gods/Furnace of Rath? They're both cheap ways to double the damage from Varchild, and unlike the previously suggested Gratuitous Violence, they affect opponents creatures as well. While that is usually a downside, since most of your opponents creatures can only attack eachother you wont be taking much damage from them. However, you have to be careful with them, and if your playgroup has decks like Xenagos, God of Revels or Saskia the Unyielding they might be more likely to kill you than help you

Avatar of Slaughter, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, Goblin Spymaster, Grand Melee, Rowan Kenrith, and Warmonger Hellkite all force opponents to attack with their Survivors. Even though they can't block or attack you with them, they might sometimes want to keep them back and gang up on you instead. Goblin Spymaster is my favorite here, since it also gives opponents additional tokens to have to attack with. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs helps make it so opponents dont attack you with their other creatures.

I didn't even consider Estrid, but that seems like an interesting idea. The masks are pretty flavorful. I'd love to see a list if you ever do make one for her.

Cutting the mask is more for things like going to GPs and other sanctioned events. I could proxy it and just never play the deck at a sanctioned event (play it after FNM or something), but I just wanted to know what you would switch out if I wanted to make the deck 100% real.

Thanks for such a long response to my question!
