Notes/Comments: This is basically the pre-con with some adjustments; there's a lot of room for improvement here. Having said that the first and so far only game I've played with this deck was HUGE amounts of fun. I have quite a long list of cards to add to this although no real idea what can come out - although most of the stuff on the "Miscellaneous" list can probably go, to start with.

I bought this precon, played two games with it as is and it was a hot mess. It really felt like it was 4 mini-decks, so I took the Sphinx tribal, most of the zombies and ninjas out... and I still think it is meh.

As far as your deck goes I think I would cut:
AEther Vial
Geist of Saint Traft
Kinjalli's Sunwing
Loyal Unicorn
Magus of the Balance

I would add either some permanents that it doesn't matter who owns them (i.e. Howling Mine) or some instants/sorceries as hitting Aminatou's ultimate seems like a fun thing to do once or twice.
