Voracious Greatshark Discussion

multimedia on Aminatou, the infected

3 weeks ago

Hey, interesting version of Aminatou. I don't think DC/Oracle and Infect are causal strategies, but if that's what you want to play then more power too you. Be careful with Infect in a causal setting as you will become the archenemy until you stop playing it.

Your deck is missing two cards to give you 100. I suggest adding Sol Ring and Wishclaw Talisman. Sol is a staple card in Commander, one of the best cards for ramp. Wishclaw is very good with Aminatou since you own Wishclaw. Activate Wishclaw, tutor for any card. An opponent gains control of Wishclaw, but that opponent doesn't own Wishclaw and can't activate it because it will be tapped as well as it's not your opponent's turn. -1 Aminatou to blink Wishclaw, you gain back control of it untapped with three new wish counters on it.

28 lands is not enough land for a 99 card Commander deck. Consider 36 lands? 36 lands I've found to be the sweet spot for most Commander decks as it makes it so you consistently are not land screwed as well as not land flooded.

Lands to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for more lands:

Good luck with your deck.

Interesting deck. I'm curious, why if you are you using Voracious Greatshark without Pouncing Shoreshark? I ask because I feel like they work well together.

I would replace your Spectral Sailors with Threnody Singers.

I'd think about adding 4x or so Voracious Greatsharks and maybe a Pouncing Shoreshark or two.

Maybe even Mainboard a Umori, the Collector.

With your current Manacurve, do you need twenty five lands?

Thank you for your input Suns_Champion!

Agreed on Nullmage Shepherd. The Split Second aspect of Krosan Grip is interesting, but I may go for Beast Within instead to have a wider range of targets.

As mentioned in my deck description, I am not fond of counterspells. That is why I tried to have most of them in creature form. Is Voracious Greatshark any better? Otherwise I might be more inclined to play Mystic Confluence or Cryptic Command.

Thassa is there to stay. During playtest I have had games with her on the board and the choice of flickering Elvish Harbinger, Silhana Wayfinder or Reclamation Sage every turn, and it seemed quite worthwhile. I actually added Eternal Witness after that test. The fact that the flicker also triggers Guardian Project and Soul of the Harvest also played a role in this decision.

I think Tishana, Voice of Thunder would be awesome in here. What would you be suggesting I cut to fit her in? Same question would go for Rishkar, should I want to add him without losing Thassa.

Distant Melody is a card I wasn't aware of; it is not going to go in here, but definitely making the list for potential upgrade to Sometimes They Come Back.

Very much appreciate you taking time to help.

Blacklance Paragon seems out of place, Voracious Greatshark seem a bit slow, unless you choose to do big flash where you run Thryx, the Sudden Storm. Correct me if I'm wrong but wouldn't Cunning Nightbonder make Brazen Borrower's petty theft ability to cost one less? If this is the case id suggest running four of them unless its a matter of budget. I would personally run three murderous riders since you already have a bit of control even without them.

BlackPhilip I did think about protection for wildfire eternal- but then if I don’t get wildfire eternal I have a lot more unusable cards in hand. Maybe some creatures could be Voracious Greatshark or Narset, Enlightened Master
