Fated Infatuation

Instant

Put a token onto the battlefield that's a copy of target creature you control. If it's your turn, scry 2. (Look at the top two cards of your library, then put any number of them on the bottom of your library and the rest on top in any order.)

Fated Infatuation Discussion

lonesentinel on Jace, Jace or Jace?

  1. Ill vote for Jace, Cunning Castaway for the flavour, and the ability to churn out blockers.
  2. What's your game plan or win condition? If its to win by illusion combat, then your Oathbreaker and Sig Spell should go along those lines. Personally, I always choose a Sig Spell that pushes you closer along your game plan, so I would rule out simple cantrip like Brainstorm or disruption like Counterspell . instead, maybe Fated Infatuation as it creates a token?
  3. I like your Sig Spell as its on theme, but there are many things you could do with 4 CMC. Also, countering only creature spells makes your Sig Spell too narrow to be able to cast it when you need it.

Ravenrose on Yennett, I Can't Even

First, I would like to say I like your deck a lot (with the exception of the now-banned Iona but that is because I hate that stupid angel). You definitely have a more nasty take on Yennett that I would dread to face! I do think Fated Infatuation would be a fun addition to this deck. Perhaps you would also like to play Medomai the Ageless since you have a lot of extra turn spells. Now that Iona is banned, why don't you add Serra the Benevolent , Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip? I think your deck would love them.

If you want to see my take on Yennett, feel free to check out The Sphinx: A Menacing Mystery.

I hope my comments have been of some help!

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Since you're a new player in Commander my advice is keep it simple. Build this deck around what your Commander does. Admiral Beckett Brass means Pirates and she doesn't do anything unless you have Pirates. Not Zombies, not Vampires or any other tribe, just Pirates.

The steal your opponents nonland permanents/creatures is a fine strategy, but don't go overboard with single cards that only give you a single steal effect on a single creature such as Act of Treason . Brass's combat damage to a player from three Pirates ability and Captivating Crew are repeatable ways to steal your opponents creatures/nonland permanents and that's better, really all you need for this effect.

There's only 27 lands here which is not enough land; you risk getting land screwed (not drawing or have lands on the battlefield). When this happens you're not able to play cards in your hand because you don't have lands on the battlefield. Getting land screwed is not fun and since you're a new player it's even worse as it can possibly make you not want to play again.

Getting land flooded (drawing too many lands/having too much land) is also not fun, but it's better to have lands to cast spells then to not have any lands at all. If land flooded you can at least cast Brass since she's in the Command Zone. All Commander deck builders have to clear deck space for enough lands.


My advice for the manabase is if you don't want to add other lands that you don't have then add more basic lands. Play a total of 38 lands with 15-20 basic lands, split up between Islands, Swamps and Mountains. Play more Islands than the rest, next is Swamps and last is Mountains. There's more blue and black Pirates/cards than red here. If you're willing to add lands you don't already have then I can help you on a budget to upgrade the manabase starting with Command Tower .

11 cards to consider cutting to add more lands:


Other cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

As far as cuts to consider, cut single cards that give a single effect such as stealing an opponent's creature for one turn. Only getting to cast a card once and only target one creature to steal for one turn is not good enough. Single card combat trick spells that can only target one creature are lackluster and can be cut. Auras that only help one creature and don't give evasion can also be cut. Ghostly Wings and Aqueous Form are fine since they can give Brass evasion making it easier for her to do combat damage to a player.

Simplify your deck's strategy, go with Pirates and cut the majority of the nonPirate creatures. Creatures such as Wonder , Nightveil Specter and Sower of Temptation are worth keeping especially Wonder. Specter and Sower are good cards to go with the theme of stealing your opponents cards. Clones are fine, but not high mana cost ones that can only copy a creature; honestly cut them.


Some redundancy (multiple cards that do the same effect or close to it) in Commander is good. But, if you're needing cuts then redundancy is a place to make cuts. Draw spells for instance are good redundancy such as Brainstorm , Night's Whisper , Read the Bones . These are all low mana cost/mana efficient draw spells. Opt and Sleight of Hand are also fine, but if you need cuts they can be cut. Draw spells such as Pirate's Pillage , Pirate's Prize , Train of Thought , Think Twice are not good, cut them. Low mana cost (0-2 CMC) mana rocks are more good redundancy: Sol Ring and Signets/Talismans. Chromatic Lantern and Commander's Sphere are much better than the other three drop mana rocks here; Mana Geode and Darksteel Ingot can be cut.

For your deck combat trick spells, counterspells and targeted creature removal is in my opinion bad redundancy. I'm not saying to not have these kinds of effects, but limit the amount of them you play. Counterspell for instance is a staple card of Commander play it, but Cancel , Sinister Sabotage and Rethink are worse then Counterspell, cut them. Sabotage is better than Cancel, etc.

Blasphemous Act and Fiery Cannonade is good redundancy. Murder is better than Doomblade, cut Doomblade. Sorcery or high mana cost instant creature removal can be cut such as Contract Killing and Price of Fame . Bitterblossom and Dreadhorde Invasion is good redundancy, but Bitterblossom is a much better card than Invasion. Invasion is a good card, but if you need to cut a card then cut it because you have Bitterblossom, otherwise keep it.

Spells that give all your creatures evasion of some type are fine, but don't go overboard with including lots of them because these cards do nothing without you controlling a creature; making them dead draws/dead cards in your hand too often. These kind of effects that can give all your creatures evasion are better if they can be repeatable or are a static ability such as Wonder or from an enchantment, not an aura. You want to play cards that can give your creatures lasting evasion more than a single card for a single effect on one turn.

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Ral, Storm Conduit and Fated Infatuation for a more casual deck that can still combo off if provided enough time. Run Mirrorwing Dragon, Zada, Hedron Grinder and Docent of Perfection  Flip to combo with infinite wizards. Not the most original but it won't combo off turn 3 or 4 like Expansion / Explosion .

I don't recall off the top of my head, but I ended up keeping Feldon because he has the "cheating" type of effect I wanted to move towards.

With that, I probably ended up removing something like a Fated Infatuation which isn't as versatile as I'd like. They both produce the token I want but Feldon would do it better and adds graveyard interaction.

I think what this deck wants is some ways to make infinite mana. The one that would be best, in my mind is Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter . You'll want more mana rocks, although I think you want more anyway, but with that combo, you can power out Blightsteel or proliferate out the table with Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , or Viral Drake . You'll want the typical Muddle the Mixture to grab the combo, and artifact tutors such as Whir of Invention , Fabricate , and Tezzeret the Seeker can get your Engine and Clasp, as well.

Another classic mono-blue combo is Pili-Pala + Grand Architect . I like that one here, since you want to power up your blue and artifact infect creatures, anyway.

Next is Palinchron . You're already running High Tide and Caged Sun , so that's one option to go infinite. Deadeye Navigator can also combo with Palinchron.

A cheaper alternative is the old Pauper Peregrine Drake combo. You use Ghostly Flicker , Illusionist's Stratagem , or Displace to blink Drake, Great Whale , or Palinchron with Mnemonic Wall , Archaeomancer , or Salvager of Secrets , returning the instant each time.

To tie all of these combos together, Merchant Scroll and Mystical Tutor can get the Instants or Whir of Invention .

I think you could use a lot more mana rocks, as well. I would start with Sky Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Thought Vessel .

I'm also surprised not to see Corrupted Conscience in here. Love that card.

As for cuts, I'm not really sure what Helm of the Host is doing here. It's not your commander you want more of, it's infect creatures. For that kind of mana, you could just kick Rite of Replication . Not really sure what Telepathy is for. If anything, you don't want the table to know when the infect player is a danger. Borrowing 100,000 Arrows has always been a pet card of mine, but making the kind of mana you are, you want X spells. Blue Sun's Zenith , Open Into Wonder , and Pull from Tomorrow are you friends.

Since you're limited on infect creatures, you might want normal clone effects. Phantasmal Image is cheap. Gigantoplasm can copy an infect creature and one-shot people, Quicksilver Gargantuan to a lesser extent. Phyrexian Metamorph is flexible. Vizier of Many Faces has recursion. Stunt Double can surprise the table by speeding up the clock just before your turn. Fated Infatuation comes with card selection. Mirror of the Forebears survives board wipes. Cackling Counterpart , Stolen Identity , Quasiduplicate , and Saheeli's Artistry can all copy creatures multiple times.

I really like this deck a lot! You might want to consider running Athreos, God of Passage and if you have the funds for it, run Vedalken Orrery . Otherworldly Journey fits your theme, as does Pyxis of Pandemonium . To fit a fate theme, run Fatespinner , Fated Return , Fated Infatuation and Fated Retribution . If you like, have a look at my Moirai deck.

I hope these suggestions have been of use to you!
