I messaged a friend, but I'll make it public.

New Teferi goes infinite with The Chain Veil and any sufficient single land or creature source of mana, such as Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds. His +1 untaps Veil and the land and / or creature. As long as you can produce mana, you can go infinite.

Now here is the super awesome thing. His ultimate can be activated any number of times with sufficient loyalty. So if you get 10x emblems, you will have 10 upkeep triggers to draw 10 cards and untap / float / activate everything 10x on EACH opponent's upkeep.

What's better is if you have either Omniscience in play or you are able to produce more than mana, you could instead +1 to generate infinite mana and loyalty, then -2 and effectively draw your whole library, then cast your whole library.

Thank you Goose_! I'll be excited to rid myself of them! (I was very limited in Planeswalkers when I made this deck, as I had only 20 total in my collection). I am surprised though, because I had included Evolution Sage already but apparently I must have made a mistake and entered another card by accident.

Please feel free to suggest any planeswalker or planeswalker support cards. I am looking forward to them all, especially The Chain Veil and Nissa, Who Shakes the World .

Aminatou the Skald

Commander / EDH 1empyrean

SCORE: 1 | 9 VIEWS | IN 1 FOLDER


I've been meaning to build a deck around Aminatou, the Fateshifter for a long time. This deck is centered around sagas and a few things from Kaldheim that I though would be fun, and is intentionally not running Oath of Teferi or The Chain Veil , as I really want to play a deck that isn't all about setting up a combo and winning.

Let me know what you think.

You do know that Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Oath of Teferi wins on the spot right? Also Have to suggest Chromatic Orrery as a sweet update..that card + 4 or greater power Sisay on the board tutors up all of the aforementioned cards. Orrery + The Chain Veil + Tezzeret the Seeker is also infinite PW activations. I have honestly loved playing Sisay Walkers/Legendaries matter, about 1000x cooler than my old Atraxa super friends (which was my first nice edh deck and I still liked a ton). Thanks for the primer

Ok, so firstly, 10/10 for flavour on the deck. Definitely a +1.

So there is some things that I think would be useful however for you:

  1. Obviously, no tap lands would be ideal, but I understand budget and stuff can be problematic. You could look at things like the Modal Dual Faced land cards from Kaldhiem and Zendikar Rising ( Clearwater Pathway  Flip etc. If you are able to stretch to Shocklands Watery Grave , Blood Crypt and Steam Vents ) then these are certainly worth the investment.
  2. There are some really good other Planeswalkers you could include. Liliana Vess would give you some tutoring ability to find pieces you want. Ashiok, Dream Render shuts down your opponents ability to search, and you can exile opponents graveyards if needed. Also, if you are wanting that "Planeswalker vibe", The Chain Veil is both awesome and super flavourful in the story of Bolas, Lilly and there deal they struck. Also, Narset, Parter of Veils will stop your opponents getting card advantage on you.
  3. Seeing as you have Niv in here in his many forms, Curiosity is an easy combo here that can result in killing your opponent. Only thing is you need to wary of the number of cards in your deck.
  4. To help you cheat some of those hefty costed dragons into play, you could consider Cryptic Gateway . Your Dragons can pay for more dragons.
  5. Honestly, some card draw could be useful too. Phyrexian Arena and Greed are some could card generators to help keep you with a stacked grip. You could also use things like Rhystic Study and Mystic Remora if your budget allows.

Good luck with the deck. Will be cool to see how it evolves.

Some clarification of Obby's timeline:

1) Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath conquered his home plane then sparked.

2) On his travels/conquests of other planes at some point he was attracted by The Chain Veil 's power. However he was cursed by it when he touched it and started becoming a demon.

3) He travelled to Zendikar in hopes of using its powerful and wild mana to stop or reverse his demonic transformation.

4) Upon his arrival on the plane its protector, Nahiri, the Lithomancer , implanted a hedron in his forehead which robbed him of his spark and caused his wings to wither and eventually die. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen

5) After a few thousand years Jace, the Mind Sculptor was trying to figure out how to help Garruk, the Veil-Cursed . He extracted the hedron from Ob Nixilis's forehead and managed to implant it in Garruk's arm. In both Ob Nixilis and Garruk the hedron had the effect of subduing the veil's curse. It brought some clarity to the mind of Garruk, Apex Predator .

6) I remember reading a story where Ob Nixilis, Unshackled was buried alive and he very gradually dug his way down and toward a power source he could sense. This is how he found the Khalni Heart which he first tried to use to reignite his spark before Nissa, Voice of Zendikar stopped him.

7) Utterly sick and tired of Zendikar at this point, and buried alive once more after his duel with Nissa, Nixilis vowed vengeance on the entire plane. He hijacked the Aligned Hedron Network when the Zendikari momentarily managed to trap Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger . Ob Nixilis Reignited managed to siphon off enough power from Ulamog to reignite his spark. He then broke Ulamog out of the hedron prison and summoned Kozilek to the surface. He took the time to easily defeat Nissa, Gideon, and Jace before leaving, but Chandra showed up in time to rescue them. At that point it wasn't worth the effort to stick around for any more petty vengeance so he left.

8) Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted took part in the War of the Spark. He joined Karn, Samut, and Dack Fayden on their mission to close Tezzeret's Planar Bridge from the Amonkhet side (they travelled through the portal itself because of The Immortal Sun ). Tezzeret didn't put up much of a fight. Nixilis burned large swaths of the remaining Eternal army before planeswalking away.
