Super interesting version of Numot! How does this play? It looks like you run a lot of blink effects whih doesn't seem like a natural path to building something with Numot at the helm.

I like how you have ~4 lands that can do some sort of pump to Numot (or make unblockable). Based on that I would say you should take a few lands out to put more lands like that in--things that pump Numot or even protect him.

This will sound basic and boring but i think Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots can do you some good. Even a Darksteel Plate or Whispersilk Cloak too.

Other than a few land swaps the only thing that really sticks out to me as "weak" is Oath of Teferi--since you are only running 4 planeswalkers, but that obviously depends on how you like it and how the deck plays.

Very unique though! I would be intrigued to play against this.

An alternate way to keep Palisade alive is giving it indestructible, to cut out Ascetism needing mana.Darksteel Plate, or something similar.

Last One Standing is a flavorful addition. Okaun, Eye of Chaos might be a good finisher if you slap Darksteel Plate onto him.

If you are going control, Thrilling Encore and Balthor the Defiled could be fun.

So big dumb creatures that land fast and hit hard is your problem?

I built a midrange-y deck, Divine Decree, that hides behind pillows and laughing as people die to Manabarbs.

You are dying around turn 5 though so anything costing more than 5 in my deck should probably be taken out for your purposes.

Focusing in on some of the pillows of best use to you would be:

Blind Obedience, Darksteel Plate, Gideon of the Trials, Glacial Chasm, Maze of Ith, Righteous Aura, Solitary Confinement, and Teferi's Protection.

You might avoid Ghostly Prison style effects depending on how your opponent's deck works since if he has all the mana then prison isn't really an issue for him.

If you would prefer to win before he goes off you might try something more akin to Mistress of Poisons which has 2 combos that can go off as early as turn 3. I never made the deck consistently able to win in that time frame so you would have to beef it up but the potential is there.

The better and cheaper option would be if we take a look at 2 or 3 decks you already have and we can maybe touch those up.

As it is super friends I would keep/add every proliferate card you can. I would also add Indestructibility, and Darksteel Plate, to keep narset alive. Your land ratios seem off based on the chart. More blue maybe. The issue with your amount of land is that you could be dead before you play narset. I would add more rocks. You really need to get her out before turn six.

You can also try to use Pariah's Shield + General's Kabuto + Magebane Armor, or anything that grants indestructible like Darksteel Plate to make losing by damage almost impossible.

Ill give u some advice buddy :) the thing about Darksteel Plate is that its such a bad card when you have nothing out, topdeck its garbage.

-/- removal is popular, exile is popular and bounce is popular so its protection is questionable.

Yes it saves you from wrath but only 1 thing.

Most of the times wouldnt a reanimate type of spell be better? Saves a dead card, and is much more flexible.

As to Necropotence i 100% agree it could take over plates spot, if the card u wanted to protect does. U can draw into a new one!

Should I cut Darksteel Plate for Necropotence? I really want Necropotence but I don't know what to cut. And Ghoulcaller's Bell seems like the most logical choice but it's a 1 drop and I like that. On the other hand. A lot of the board wipes I got would kill my creatures with Darksteel Plate equipped. So idk what's the worse card. But I feel like if I would choose anything else it would have to be something in the high cmc. Not any creatures though because I'm at 20 and I really don't think it's a good idea to go any lower then that. So is Darksteel Plate the right cut here?

I also really like Glistening Oil and would like to try to slot that in too

Do I cut Darksteel Plate and Ghoulcaller's Bell for Necropotence and Glistening Oil? Anyones input on this
