Bolas's Citadel

Legendary Artifact

You may look at the top card of your library at any time.

You may play the top card of your library. If you cast a spell this way, pay life equal to its converted mana cost rather than pay its mana cost.

It depends on your opponents, in some games Rakish Heir performing very good. In other games it is more like a nearly useless card. I think about to change it for Thirsting Bloodlord , sure its one mana more but it buffs immediately and is a 4 Mana 5/5 (with Token), it synergies with Vampire Nocturnus .

I like Impact Tremors it drains by casting creatures very well because of "Eminence" and with a Bolas's Citadel you get the drain train started.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor is a game changer. You generate the table hate very fast because you play a aggro deck. Sorin can save your life points when you are low or can kill an opponent out of nowhere.

Sorry if i repeatly reply this. Im just excited building this sisay too ;)

I think Path of Mettle  Flip is not synergize well despite it is a legend card. It will shuts down our dorks which played before that. Wdyt?

I tested with Bolas's Citadel last night. Its a good addition imo. Can tutor it with sisay and basically play for free mana from top deck repeatly.

Beartribul on Yawgmoth's revenge

We have to combos: Butcher Ghoul + Genesis Chamber + Yawgmoth, Thran Physician draws as many cards as you have life. you can make this by any two undying creatures or with one undying creature and one combo enabler. those + Yawgmoths first ability draws you cards, kills your dudes and makes you lose as much life as you want. The plan is to draw to Blood Artist , Zulaport Cutthroat or Deathgreeter . Now you can draw cards without killing yourself. Then you draw cardsk, play your fast mana and with that play Putrid Imp that lets you discard cards and most importantly Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre that suffles you graveyard. Then you either win by drawing cards with Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat on the table until your opposition dies or you exile their decks with Bitter Ordeal .
Backup combo is Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top that you tutor with Insidious Dreams . Just play Insidious Dreams discard three cards, tutor combo on top of your library in order that Bolas's Citadel is on top. Then you just draw and play the citadel and with that cast reservoir and top and then draw and cast top from the top of your library until you have enough life to kill your opponents with reservoirs ability.

-1 Bolas's Citadel / +1 Mirri's Guile

Both great cards, but I really want to address the curve in this deck. Given two options, I'll lean toward the cheaper version.

TheBloopKing on The Start of a Joke [Kethis Legendary Aristocrats]

can I ask why Anafenza, the Foremost ? sure it puts a counter on another attacking creature. But it stops your creatures from going into your graveyard. Instead, can I suggest Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for its -2?

I would also remove Oath of Kaya and Oath of Gideon as you aren't going to be getting much value out of them. Karn's Bastion does Oath of Gideons job way better, for putting counters onto everything rather than when a planeswalker enters the battlefield. I've also found that the extra counter rarely matters on the planeswalkers. Oath of Kaya doesn't stack, and barely stalls in my opinion. With only 11 planewalkers, I'm not entirely sure what justifies it. Personally would add Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist to control the attacks towards you, and Bolas's Citadel which puts you so far ahead

and since you got Zulaport Cutthroat , why not add Blood Artist and Cruel Celebrant ?

remove Vraska, Swarm's Eminence . This card does nothing for your game. It only puts counters on the tokens it creates and you need to proliferate for you to use it a 3rd time.

Teyo, the Shieldmage is better off as a The Wanderer . In my superfriends, Teyo always stayed in my hand, and its 0/3 walls only chumped and did nothing against trample creatures. The Wanderer atleast makes damage spells redundant, and offers removal.

Kaya, Bane of the Dead is a answer to hexproof and indestructibles.

Grateful Apparition is terrible against any flyer. It is going to be removed, and often is a wasted 2 mana. Its only ever good if you get it off at turn 2, and in commander, thats not exactly likely.

Primevals' Glorious Rebirth and Seasons Past

Deploy the Gatewatch is better off a Harmonize . I've done the math and it more consistently whiffs than hits 2. Call the Gatewatch and Time of Need atleast fetch for the specific walker you need.

Bolas's Citadel is a must play in this deck. Sure you lose life, but it gives you a extra slot to your hand that you can cast for free. This card puts you so far ahead, the life lost is just a mere flaw

Evolution Sage needs to be in the deck if you are running superfriends

and finally. You NEED spot removal. Absolutely need it if you are going to win games in a superfriends shell. You need to be able to answer the creatures that possess a threat to your walkers.
