Hey. I built an Aminatou, the Fateshifter commander deck, attempting to win the contest on r/budgetbrews for the best deck on a budget of 75$. The aim of this deck is to get down permanents that draw cards on EtB and blink those with your commander. This will be the draw engine to back up the large amount of counterspells and removal the deck runs. Attentive observers may notice that all the removal that isn't counterspells is similar in function to Oblivion Ring, and that I'm running Thassa's Devourer and similar constellation effects. This means all the removal can double as combo pieces. For instance, Oblivion Ring, Estrid's Invocation, and the commander lets you set up a loop where Estrid's Invocation exiles Oblivion Ring and vice versa, until everyone loses to Altar of the Brood or the like. Any suggestions would be welcome, and keep in mind I'm on a strict budget of 75$. Thanks!

Sorry boys, this is gonna be a long one. I know it says to ask questions briefly and plainly, but my brain already hurts and I definitely need help.
I'm trying to build an Aminatou, the Fateshifter commander deck that abuses things like Wispweaver Angel and Faceless Butcher to make infinite combos, with each exiling the other until the end of time.
Turns out, though, the stack gets funky when you have Faceless Butcher leaving the battlefield before its trigger resolves.
Here's an example, so you can get an idea of why I'm so confused. Let's say I have Aminatou, the Fateshifter and Storm Crow on the battlefield, and Faceless Butcher and Wispweaver Angel in my hand. My opponents are all F6'd. I cast Faceless Butcher. He enters, and I target Storm Crow with the trigger. I wave bye-bye to the crow. I then cast Wispweaver Angel, and it enters. I target Faceless Butcher with the trigger. Faceless Butcher leaves the battlefield, and Storm Crow comes back. Wispweaver Angel isn't done resolving though; Faceless Butcher comes back and puts its own trigger on the stack. I target Wispweaver Angel. The angel leaves, and the stack is empty. I use Aminatou, the Fateshifter's -1 ability and blink Faceless Butcher. Faceless Butcher leaves, and triggers Wispweaver Angel to enter again.
This is as far as I can go before I stop knowing what happens.
My questions are these: How do the triggers play out in the above scenario? If I add an Altar of the Brood to the above board state, can I mill everyone out and win? And if so, how?

...And I think it could be a lot of fun. While I don't see potential to win any Grand Prixs anytime soon, I think I might have a lot of fun at some FNM's. This deck basically aims to abuse wheels with cards like Dream Salvage and Waste Not. Liliana's Caress and Megrim for the kill. The main problem with the deck is mana generation: Ideally, you'd be casting a ton of wheels in one turn, as most storm decks do (except usually not with wheels), but I can't seem to make enough mana to do so. Any suggestions are appreciated, budget isn't a huge concern, and thanks!
