Legendary Planeswalker — Aminatou

+1: Draw a card, then put a card from your hand on top of your library.

-1: Exile another target permanent you own, then return it to the battlefield under your control.

-6: Choose left or right. Each player gains control of all nonland permanents other than Aminatou, the Fateshifter controlled by the next player in the chosen direction.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter can be your commander.

Nice brew, mate. I run esper blink/flicker helmed by Aminatou, the Fateshifter, so there's a little bit of card overlap there :)

There are a couple minor changes you might consider: Topiary Stomper. I like the Plant Dino because you can search for any type of basic, not just Forests, and it's also a decent body. Elite Guardmage, aka Cloudblazer-lite, is another great lifegain/draw piece. I've never drawn it and wished I had drawn something else. Yorion, Sky Nomad is a really great Flicker effect/enabler for other things. If you have it with Charming Prince / some other flicker creature, you can create a ton of value in very short order.

As far as cuts for any of those? ...That's the hard part, lol.

A few non-budget ideas that I'm including for the reason that they may help give you other, more budget ideas: Brutalizer Exarch -> Eladamri's Call. Eladamri's Call on opponent's end step, get Archaeomancer, play archaeomancer on your turn targeting Eladamri's Call in your graveyard, boom, two tutored creatures. Congregation at Dawn is a more budget tutor that could accomplish this, too (although in that case I'd probably put arch 2nd or 3rd from top).

Panharmonicon - if you're having trouble getting creatures to stick, this can help give them more impact when they can land, even if they don't stick around long.

Good luck, and have fun!

If you add Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God you can make another infinite combo off of Sisay, Weatherlight Captain/Jodah. Basically grab Chromatic Orrery tap it to grab Aminatou, the Fateshifter -1 flicker orrery grab Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God use it's copy of aminatou to -1 flicker orrery again grab Oath of Teferi.

Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Oath of Teferi is an infinite flicker combo for infinite draw, mana (flicker lands), and walker activations (flicker the walker). You just need to use the second activation to reset aminatou and bolas every time.

Treasure Cruise --> Swan Song?

Oath of Teferi is also good.

Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Bioessence Hydra + Spark Double makes an infinite trample creature and each piece is good on its own.

What specific problems do you have with your mana base and instants?

If you’re going with stax, i’ve found Aminatou, the Fateshifter to be an awesome commander. I’ve got a list which might give you some fun ideas. not super strong but can hold its own against cEDH decks.

I haven't played Atraxa, but I do play a Superfriends deck helmed by Aminatou, the Fateshifter, so I could give a bit of advice from my experience that might be helpful to yours. The first is that board wipes rock. In most decks I am down to two to three now, but in Superfriends they are a great way to protect our planeswalkers, and since creatures aren't the biggest deal for us they don't set us back too much. Semester's End is also a really great way to protect them. It also resets them and they start with an extra counter, which is a plus! I'm also surprised you aren't playing Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Norn's Annex, as these cards are great protection. Even Sphere of Safety can be playable. Pillowfort cards like this take the pressure off of our walkers and blockers. I will also say, I never thought of playing Rings of Brighthearth in a superfriends deck, but that is a great idea! I've always wanted to play that card, so now I'll pick it up for my PW deck. Great idea!

Also, this is just a flavor thing, but since a Phyrexian is helming this deck and many of the PWs are villains, wouldn't The Injustice Leage be a better name? Great work!

Thanks for the encouragement I am glad you like the deck! I tried to be disciplined while making it. Splashy cards that spam out a lot of angel tokens are powerful, but low cmc angels seem to be the way to go wide fast.

All of those are good suggestions, so I can add them to the maybe-board. I'd certainly love to have a copy of Moat if for no other reason than it is fun and iconic! I certainly wouldn't question Mana Crypt either. I personally agree with you about paywalls in magic, and I think the reserve list in particular is a great evil because it locks people out of playing some fun old cards. I want as many people to play magic as want to, and I think these people keep certain demographics out of the format, which is sad. I don't personally have any issue with proxies as such for especially expensive cards, especially those on the reserve list, and would allow those in a group I am playing in. The reason I don't do it myself is simply because I want to play my decks anywhere, and someone could definitely object, resulting in me either not playing the deck or having to switch cards out on the fly, which is inconvenient. As such I don't even proxy cards I own to have more copies just because I don't want to hassle with it, but I have no issue with anyone I play with doing so!

As for Smothering Tithe, I actually own three copies of that card which I purchased when it was under five dollars, so my exclusion of that card is a bit more intentional, though I wouldn't question anyone else who wanted to play it! My theory on tithe is that it is best in slower, more controlling decks that amass value and win with big splashy plays or combos. I've tried it in other aggressive decks like this and found it was just too slow for the playstyle. With Giada being the optimal turn two play most of the time the earliest we could play tither here is turn four, which is when we want to begin gold-fishing and playing key draw or support pieces. Tapping out to play tithe would slow that process down quite a bit, and we don't really need the amount of mana it provides in this deck. I also like tithe in blue decks with counterspells to protect key pieces, because it can be removal bait, and if someone removes it before we've made at least four tokens we come out at a loss. It's amazing in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion and Aminatou, the Fateshifter decks but I'm not sure if it fits ideally in Giada, but I could be wrong!

Guerric on Great Esper-ations

Hi everyone! I could use some communal help in deciding on something. For some time I have had a super-friends deck built around Aminatou, the Fateshifter. The deck works fine and all and there are some fun things with it, but I think I just really don't like super-friends. Players tend to target planes-walkers all the time, even if they aren't the biggest threat or even a threat at all, and while I do a lot to protect them its just not a super fun playstyle for me. This is also disappointing because I started by magic journey with casual decks in the esper shard world and I love the color combo, so I want to like my esper deck a lot. But I have a lot of pricy, shiny planes-walkers I could sell for store credit ti make a new deck, and a beautiful esper mana base and support cards I'd play in any deck. So I'd like some help deciding what to do.

When I first started commander, I thought I'd build Oloro, Ageless Ascetic. It seemed like a relaxed concept to gain life, draw cards, sit back, and police the board. But as I've gained experience and the format has evolved, I don't think I'd enjoy a passive playstyle like this, but I could be wrong.

One commander I am very intrigued by is Alela, Artful Provocateur. I played her in Brawl in person and on arena and enjoyed that, and think she would even be better in commander. I love artifacts and enchantments and do not have an artifact themed deck. I think she could be built in a lot of ways, and could have some fun combos while also being able to smack opponents for damage. I like commanders who have a clear direction, but which still could be built differently, and she seems like that. One of my reservations is that I also play Ranar the Ever-Watchful, and while I don't see myself playing blink in Alela and I don't run combos in Ranar, I'd want to make sure it feels different.

I also am very excited by Varina, Lich Queen. I love tribal decks to the core, and zombies are about as iconic as they come. I also like commanders that draw cards, and while Varina technically loots, building her correctly would allow me to sculpt my hand and recur stuff from the yard. While I know there are some combos with her she could be played aggressively, and she seems like fun.

I could also be open to other esper commanders, with the exception of the "enter the dungeon" guy as that mechanic sounds annoying to me, but the above are ones I've been intrigued by. What are your thoughts? I very much appreciate any input!
