tim27 hey! While there’s not a real 1:1 alternative, the important feature is to keep opponent’s hand sizes low. Cards like Words of Waste are okay in this regard and you can activate this for your draw for turn which can be a double-edged sword, but works at keeping each opponent’s hands at a minimum. Other than that, Oppression and Bottomless Pit were both originally in my list and serve as great universal stax pieces.

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

SideBae on Low att. discard

So two cards I think you should put in right away are Geth's Grimoire and Words of Waste . Paired, they're busted -- but individually they're good, too.

Smallpox and Pox are some pretty brutal spells to resolve. I've always been partial to Smallpox , simply because it's easier to build around, but Pox proper can be pretty good too.

Liliana of the Veil is amazing, though unfortunately she is a lot of money. Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip is a more affordable alternative -- and if you can flip her fast and consistently, she's arguably just as good. Liliana Vess is also good, but I think she's significantly worse than the aforementioned. If you run some Lilies, Liliana's Triumph becomes even more powerful.

Considering how much of your creatures are under three power, you might want to consider Meekstone if your meta is into the whole attacking thing.

Raven's Crime interacts pretty well with Null Profusion .

Night of Souls' Betrayal seems like it'd be super dorky in this deck. Your x/1s (like Dusk Legion Zealot ) would die and come back every turn so long as your general is down, so you'd get their triggers on every end step. This will require a lot of build-around, but keep it in mind because it's kinda super powerful.

Bottomless Pit and Necrogen Mists are good permanent-based sources of discard. Oppression is also pretty dumb.

This is a somewhat strange request. The interaction between Dakmor Salvage and The Gitrog Monster is extremely strong, and very cheap monetarily. You should consider running a couple dredge cards for value anyways, as hitting 2-3 extra draws off a dredge is an easy and once again cheap monetarily way to get ahead in card advantage.

To humor you though, here's what I'd probably run.

And from there, round it out with some efficient early game beaters, some spot removal, land ramp, and a bit of card draw.

yo i like that card Oppression

I have a Daxos deck, and I do think that it works better as a group slug archtype.

I would recommend cards like Rule of Law to slow down your opponents. Or some discard packages like Oppression , Necrogen Mists . Depending of your build I would recommend Call to the Grave since Daxos is a zombie itself.

If you dont want to change your archtype, I would recommend using Divine Visitation as a "second copy" of Anointed Procession . I would use Etchings of the Chosen as anthem and Daxos protector. Other option to protect your table is Cloudstone Curio , it sometimes works as a second copy of Skybind and in other moments it protects your enchantments from removal.

Another way of increasing your experience counters and triggers, is to use Auratog , or others enchantment sacrificers together with graveyard returning enchantments such as Brilliant Halo . This is reinforced by the new Starfield Mystic .

I would recommend using mana rocks such as Gilded Lotus for an option in blinking it with Skybind and generating extra tokens every turn. A card that seems bad, but really compliment this strategy is Victory Chimes .
