WARNING: This is NOT TL;DR Material. I just wanted to confess, that's all.
11 Days later, My post directly above this one has 2 things outdated; but this is off-sync knowledge. Well, it's time for me to weigh in on my own sins...
After trying all I can to follow some rulings, it got SO awful so fast, & the amount lasting thus far has no end in sight. This'll be a long one; this will be a warning for those who bore too easily. First, Let's talk about enpc's behalf of the Addendums .
1st off: Rule 1: Be concise is broken. I try to the best of my abilities to be as simple to the point as possible; HOWEVER! I also have to add important to note info just to get a bigger grasp on; that, & out of all well known sources of Media ever; Dante's Divine Comedy seems to be the one thing anyone here is familiar with. But that's not saying much! I still know so many sources nobody else here even knows; Anime, or not. The problem is my intellect doesn't elicit Jealousy, but worse. For questions: I guess I'll have to watch what I type...
Rule 2: Is adding that much context that CAN help WRONG? What is your usual limit for appropriate context? I'm lowballing this, & saying "Just 1 sentence." as a direct guess. I apologize if that sounded very rude as w/ the whole post...
Rule 4: You see, this is where my Direct Point of Imperfection comes in. I make typos all the damn time; maybe it's my PC rotting my brain. Maybe it's WotC not taking a true chance on non-conformity! Where's our Real-World Guns? Where are Elves opposing all natural concept, & using technology? Hell, it's not like WotC is promoting Gun Violence; they've done worse already; & all of it is Magic.
Simply put; DO NOT see this as a TURNOFF. We all had that problem as children anyway; some, more than others... (SPOILER: I was one of them; even though such programs to make me learn as if I was a freak; & not Asperger's like now. What happened, QUANTUM LEAP!)
Rule 5: I was upset at someone so much, this could've had actually happened. I barely was able to find a good post at the time; revising crap No less than 7 times; yep, it was a damn Guilt Trip for me, & if you comment that Guilt Trips "Suck" in any form of grammar, well, moving on: I was just doing my own thing. That's wrong now?
Rule 6: What is the strict Max amount of questions that deserve something to prove? What BY ALL MEASS is TL;DR? Wait, let me Google this so I can enshame you all.
(Click Clack Moo. Not Available as you're searching on the Arpanet, or the Intranet.)
The internet says "Too Long; Didn't Read." Hmph! Well, someone told me to do only 200 characters MAX. How to fit the OP Line, 3 Questions, assuming that's the legal limit, & an Ending note? Bonus Points if you also include the NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION part in same 200 Unicode text.
Answer: You can't! Sometimes it might be more worth the cause to explain what one needs; for me: QUITE a lot, & NO RETALIATING.
Rule 7: It's surprising anyone is interested in my head in spite of knowing nothing of it. Truth? I HATE The Simpsons. I already did a minor reference to a great TV series known as QUANTUM LEAP. Ironically I use the "Click Clack Moo" reference as Loading Screen Emulation. It is a reference to the Children's Book "Click, Clack, Moo Cows that Type" written by Doreen Cronin, & even has critical acclaim; but only I know this reference here. Also, even Pokémon has a welcome place in Pop-Culture (Same for Digimon.). While everyone seems more versed to the Crap EN Dub of Pokémon, Anime-Wise, the JP Origin is what it should've been. Blame 4KIDS for an awful dub that kept getting worse even now. Maybe it's wise to watch the JP Dub to get a true reality check about the Anime?
That's as far as I can reach for known material the typical user here would know. The clarification of the original JP Version of "Pocket Monster" is stressful enough. Learning what you missed for 22 years, & we now have a new Protag? I hope he does some awesome things; The Galar region is stated to be an AWFUL Place to live...
Rule 1: While my temperament can be controlled, you already stated my Primary Mana Color is ; basically a Male Chandra. BUT, there was one thing unwritten. When someone snaps. Yep. IRL, I trigger ALOT. & I do this to prove a point; that everyone intentionally ignores. It's like I am nonexistent when I want my opinion across.
Rule 2: If this is about my Superfriends Deck still WIP, I am offended as well as Meek. "Why did you put Rowan Kenrith in this deck?" "Why put the Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle combo in all your 5 Color Decks? Same for Happily Ever After ?" "Why do you not realize that Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast , Rowan Kenrith , & Saheeli, Sublime Artificer are all AWFUL in Superfriends?!"
Answer: I already have an Engine for Wrenn and Six , & plan to add Oko, Thief of Crowns also. I'm trying to choose one of those three for Mass Artifice use. Problem? Nobody cares about a Defending Token, unless you're Teyo, the Shieldmage which means you have Hexproof also. There are ways to make sure only one Creature your opponents control can Attack or Block. Dueling Grounds , & (Unless you run Humility .) Silent Arbiter . But there are better options; since the player & their Walker army are now different choices to attack. I'm now trying to optimize my Superfriends deck so my creatures DON'T have to fear Humility & I can find a 2 card combo similar to Composite Golem + Nim Deathmantle . Yep, creatures are packing their bags as they find another place to go. I'd like some help, but that's for another time. Heck, Saheeli, Sublime Artificer might be better as a result; emulating Artifice as noncreature Tokens.
The question now is: When will I make a Creatureless Superfriends deck after so long? Cutting Happily Ever After though...
Rule 4: I try to learn (& remember) such advice; but, bottom line, my mind is on a Creatureless Superfriends Deck; a true Herculean Feat never done right. But when so many disprove my efforts to do things my way & why, I better be able to agree with at least someone. Absolute Fail if 's Rule 2 does nothing at all. Are my counterpoints that sucky?
Rule 5: I recently started a folder for non-cEDH Commander Decks worth using. After getting what Sun's Champion had; I actually had nowhere to search; (I'd rather conventional CMDRs anyway), because the amount for even one card in a deck is included in OVER 5-Digit INSANITY. Nobody can search that well in, say, 5 MINUTES. Let's say, for instance, a CMDR Deck w/ a Conventional Commander had say, 1000 Decks on avg., per se. THAT'S ALOT TO GO THROUGH! Maybe someone from the Senior Staff can help on this? I can't resume w/o a better way to search for other Decks.
That's it, sadly. I didn't come here to rant or complain at all in the first place. All I ask is to know everything I'm flawed at (Albeit Improvable, or not.), & how to help against my biggest enemy: My Ego, SuperEgo, & Id; all Sigmund Freud crap. Basically, I already have one choice I did wrong:
A: Trying too hard.
After that, I'm literally in a void. Why did I say so much on this post? I'm literally at the point of being reduced to begging for answers. This post is LONG as crap on purpose; but I didn't post this so I get no APPROPRIATE Response, or TL;DR Trash. I posted this so I could get some answers. Was I rambling? Yes. But that too is also an important part of this post as there is some logic ignored by everyone on purpose. Before I end this Post, I'll try & find what went wrong & improve it.
(But, WOW. This is my biggest Text Wall ever... X/)

I've run the miracle package in my early run with Aminatou, but here with Ad nauseam, it bring my CMC too high to run.
The anti- search creatures are great and I will include them into the sideboard, but Ashiok, Dream Render might be better since he can be reset with Aminatou and he exile graveyard too.
Humility is a great card, I'll try to find it a place.
I didn't went the full stax road, since there's another stax Aminatou list in the primer (it's the only list) and I wanted a different build.
Why no Zur ? It's easy, Zur already had ton of builds, primers and he is known as the strongest Esper commander. This primer is to shine a light on this little Voodoo girl Aminatou, the Fateshifter and her capabilities. She will never be as strong as Zur, but that's fine, because nobody else is.

I'm assuming this is a budgetless list, so my first question is why no Mox Opal ? Oversight or intentional?
Next, how do you handle resolved creatures? You have three spells capable of removing a critter off the board, in Chain of Vapor Cyclonic Rift and Toxic Deluge , but that's about it from what I can see. Why don't you run Ensnaring Bridge Humility Damnation or similar? I understand you want to be proactive with counterspells but there's no way you can lock the other 3 players with 1 for 1 trades while you're also building your board. Also consider that bouncing THEN countering a spell is 2-for-1'ing yourself when you could just Swords to Plowshares it. Literally every deck features a creature as the commander so its not like you won't have targets except the unbelievably rare pod of 4 PW commanders.
Are you aware in that you have a wincon with Angel's Grace + Ad Nauseam + Silence + Brainstorm + Windfall + Yawgmoth's Will ? I don't see the line listed despite being a built in backup if both labman + Jace are exiled. I see Yawgill + Grace listed but it doesn't look like you realize you can force 99+ draws to win.
Have you considered running tutor hate in tandem with Scheming Symmetry ? Aven Mindcensor or Leonin Arbiter break parity and are worth running even without Symmetry. I understand this is meant to be a bear-lite build but with how many wheels (free draws for opponents) you're running, turning off tutors may save your bacon. Also works well with Wishclaw which you seem to enjoy (its a Grim Tutor for first activation but being reusable for cheap unconditional tutor is fantastic so I have mixed feelings)
Have you considered miracle cards for Aminatous +1? Having the ability to always get them for the miracle cost is pretty rad. Banishing Stroke Devastation Tide Temporal Mastery Terminus . The timewalk one should be worth a consideration for sure. Miracle cards also make great surprise plays with EOT Vampiric Tutor or Mystical Tutor
Have you played against a discard stax deck like Nath or a mana denial stax deck yet? Your low amount of removal is leading me to believe that a resolved Trinisphere or Oppression makes this deck cry big sad tears.
Why would I choose Aminatou as the commander over Zur for a similar build? Zur can consistently grab Waste Not to kickstart wheel lines or value grinders like Necropotence Rhystic Study . I like the Aminatou interaction with Wishclaw but I don't think that single interaction in your 99 can justify the choice when Zur is going to give you 100% consistency. I normally see Aminatou decks run stax pieces that it can break parity on by blinking your own permanents ( Static Orb shutting the game down but you blink a tapped Mana Vault to get far ahead, blinking a 1 counter Tangle Wire to reset it, untapping your Ancient Tomb while Winter Orb is out, etc.etc.). You could certainly run strong hate cards like Winter Orb without turning off your combo lines. Cost enhancers like Trinisphere or Sphere of Resistance might prove unwise though.
Extremely interesting build, curious to see where it goes. Cheers

I double on Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite . The Archon is pretty good in my opinion, it's a more rule friendly Humility . If you're the only one at the table with anthems (and maybe trample), you're basically good to go. I'd consider maybe 2-3 replacements to put those cards in (as proxies maybe for Elesh Norn) to see how they run.

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.
Copperhorn Scout doesn't fly, is likely to die and doesn't add much to the deck since you already get to untap with your commander. I would rather suggest to instead add some removal in the form of Ulvenwald Tracker , which adds tremendous values combined with all the untaps
Ethersworn Canonist chances are that your opponents won't play a lot of spells due to Winter Orb ect... and you already got the best one of all ( Eidolon of Rhetoric ), therefore I would rather swap it for some better hate in cEDH which would be Spirit of the Labyrinth
Vryn Wingmare same goes here. I wouldn't play any stax pieces with CMC 3 or higher (too slow and you get better effects for same CMC). For 3 CMC can get Recruiter of the Guard , Eternal Witness , Knight of the Reliquary , Knight of Autumn , Banisher Priest / Fiend Hunter . Note: In your case I would go for removal effects, since you have only Gilded Drake . A Yisan deck would crush yours since it is not affected by stax (since it's a stax deck as well) and would tutor Ulvenwald Tracker and kill all your flyers and dorks.
Archon of Valor's Reach I think this is a classic win-more card which you don't really need to win the game. An alternative would be Gaddock Teeg . However, if you insist on having a high CMC mana drop that completely destroys the game board in your favor, I would like to introduce Willbreaker
Utopia Sprawl / Wild Growth : Since you are a creature deck I would much rather play the remaining mana dorks in order to have more hitters for untap triggers but more importantly, to not be affected by your own stax. Remaining dorks are: Boreal Druid , Priest of Titania ,
Nature's Claim since you are a creature deck and you will be slowing down the game tremendously, I strongly believe that Aura Shards is a better option to go with. It is recurrent and you are very light on removal. What can you do against a Cursed Totem or Humility ?
Tangle Wire I believe you don't really need this stax piece. It's one of the weakest and only holds up a very short time. Instead try for example Nature's Will - this has proven to be quite devastating. Or Living Plane if you seek to lock out all lands of your opponents together with Linvala, Keeper of Silence
Cyclonic Rift seems fine but could also be a win-more card. I presume you would cast this very late in the game and only as an emergency for 2 CMC. Hence, you can ask yourself if this card is really needed to win or if you perhaps would rather have another card that helps to set you up in the early game. I.e. Sylvan Tutor / Fauna Shaman ect...
I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Hey, looks good. Nice stax build especially if it's your first one, but you forgot Sol Ring :)
I think if you're willing to build the manabase around Back to Basics that you should include tutors to get Basics. Otherwise you're playing a worse manabase for the rare chance that you draw Basics.
Land Tax is excellent to make sure you have the basic land type that you need which is especially good with Back to Basics . Adding Tax could also let you add the three Shock lands to the manabase to give you a little more color fixing. Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora are pretty much staple blue draw engines for multiplayer Commander. Token generators: Luminarch Ascension , Bitterblossom and Elspeth, Knight-Errant can be a win conditions. You have life gain to cover Bitter and Ascension looks at each opponent meaning it can be activated quickly. Liliana of the Veil can also be a win condition. Planeswalkers since they give you repeatable value without needing to use mana or tap lands are good with Stasis . Narset, Parter of Veils , Teferi, Time Raveler and Ashiok, Dream Render have powerful static abilities in multiplayer Commander.
Creeping Tar Pit , Dimir Keyrune and Elspeth's +1 can get around Humility letting the creature attack not as a 1/1, but better with flying or unblockable. Cursed Totem is powerful when it doesn't effect you at all since none of the creatures here have an activated ability. Many have triggered abilities, but those aren't affected by Totem.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Ambition's Cost
- Syphon Mind
- Spelltithe Enforcer
- Time Stop
- Leyline of the Void
- Fortune's Favor
- Fact or Fiction
- Mindlock Orb
