Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign
Legendary Creature — Sphinx
Flying, vigilance, menace
Whenever Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks, reveal the top card of your library. If that card's converted mana cost is odd, you may cast it without paying its mana cost. Otherwise, draw a card.

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Discussion

@ClockworkSwordfish: Nice choices. Though now I have to make some cuts; unless you've any better ideas? I'm even contemplating revising my Deck Descriptions for how my decks will work. That said, The Purged Surge out, I still have to hack at 13 creatures to get to 100 cards (38 Lands is fine.). Until then, I'll just do the following:
1: Make an Atemsis, All-Seeing CMC Variety Deck.
2: Make a Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign "Odd CMC Cards only" Deck
3: You saw this one coming; a cEDH Boros deck that has all the strategies I noted from before; & more.
Sorry about the shameless self-marketing, but I'm stoked about these three...
All that out of the picture, what Creatures would you add/cut/replace a Land for?
Apologies to those that think I did some kind of wrongdoing; though that wasn't the case...

It's definitely not a competitive card, but I love Soothsaying , especially in decks that care about the top of the library, like Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign and Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge . It's saved alot of my mana-screwed starts, and in the late game helps to find your haymakers.

If you want some real recursion with Archaeomancer, you should definitely slot in the best of the best flicker card out there, Ghostly Flicker ! You can target Archaeomancer and another creature with Ghostly Flicker, and then grab Ghostly Flicker again when it finishes resolving.
I would cut out Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign , Disinformation Campaign , Oath of Gideon , and Banishing Stroke . Yennett is better in its own deck, Disinformation Campaign doesn't do enough for the cost, Oath of Gideon's extra loyalty counter doesn't affect anything, and Banishing Stroke barely works out.
I love Aminatou decks! She's one of the decks that I had the most fun playing and building. Hope this helped!

I think your deck's a bit more potent than mine, just due to budgeting restrictions on my end of things. Esper just seems like my favorite of the three color combos in mtg, and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign just seems like the best way to play those colors and get card advantage. The cmc of the revealed card doesn't matter as far as I'm concerned. If it's odd, I get to cast it for free, if not, I draw it. Either way, I can't see anything to be mad about. Not to mention, with its keywords, commander damage is a threat some players either can't stop or will forget about until it's too late to stop.

I like innovative decks and taking the path less traveled. Here's my rendition of a Creatureless Spellslinger Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign combo deck!
This home-brewed deck is extremely fun to pilot and refreshing to see in action. Through my play testing, this deck can combo off pretty consistently and as early as turn 3 when uninterrupted.

I'm constantly brainstorming on ways to improve this deck so feel free to add your peculiar and crazy concoctions to the brew! I welcome all things wacky, bizarre and freakish into my cauldron of ideas!
I've recently added a new section to the Primer to document interesting match-ups and game plays featuring the deck. Feel free to check out the new section "Chronicles of War".
The deck recently hit 100 upvotes and 10,000 views. I'd like to thank everyone who stopped by, gave suggestions and upvoted the deck. Let's keep the support flowing in!
Thanks everyone in advance. Cheers!
Cloudchaser.Kestrel Digesting your deck and my comments will be posted soon.

Fun commander choice. I love the include of In Garruk's Wake just for the fun of top decking it when Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks. You've hit on a majority of the cards I'd want to include. I actually want to build this deck now :D. What about Time Warp or Clone Legion ? Clone Legion would be pretty hilarious to flip with Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign .

marco-piatti I think the walkers make decent commanders but a lot of others disagree with me. It is worth noting that in each of those decks this year and most previous years there are other cards included in the deck that can be the commander out of the box. Both Varina, Lich Queen and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign come in the Aminatou, the Fateshifter deck. That said the most important aspect of commander for most of us is that we play a commander that 'feels right' so if you are most interested in scarab/oloro go with that. You'll have more fun :)

What i do it's manipulate the top with Approach of the Second Sun , with Doom Whisperer and Sensei's Divining Top in the field, then Pay 6 Life (even with 1 life total this will works since you gain 7 lifes) and use the top to take Approach of the Second Sun and hard cast it in the same turn in second main fase to win the game very oddly.
Also, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign works very well with Artisan of Kozilek and Sepulchral Primordial / Diluvian Primordial giving me a TON of Value with at least 2 huge creatures, and probably 5 creatures or 3 other good spells (and also get rid of those spells), get the most valuable from others graveyards.
