I know I posted semi-recently, but I have a new list and want to start some more trades now that I am active again.

I am looking to get cards for a Progenitus Superfriends Deck. I have a bunch of random stuff to offer and am more interested in some cards listed below than others (i.e. I will prioritize Atraxa, certain walkers, and certain lands). I know in some cases it will be hard to make trades but it is worth a shot.

Cards wanted for Superfriends:
Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Chandra, Flamecaller (SDCC Version)
Gideon, Champion of Justice
Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Jace, Architect of Thought
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets (SDCC Version preferred)
Kaya, Ghost Assassin
Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
Nissa, Vital Force
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar (SDCC version)
Ob Nixilis Reignited
Vraska the Unseen
Venser, the Sojourner

The Chain Veil
Oath of Ajani
Deploy the Gatewatch
Merciless Eviction
End Hostilitiesfoil icon

1 of Each Amonkhet full art foil

Flooded Strand
Overgrown Tomb

Cards of Note:
Force of Will

Fauna Shaman
Scion of the Ur-Dragon
Other stuff, some unlisted

Nice deck :) id like to hear how it does vs aggro decks. You planning on playing this for game day?

My suggestions are around your ramp tho. I see you are running spring / mind, probably to help find your colors and ramp. I have had great success with a similar deck running a playset of Servant of the Conduit instead. Alternatively, Channeler Initiate has great potential here too! Changing the tempo to a 2cc creature that ramps vs a 3cc sorcery will greatly change how your deck plays (a turn 3, 4cc walker vs a turn 4, 5cc walker) The difference is you get your walkers out quicker to start generating value faster.

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter seems meh. Maybe bring in another Fumigate mainboard instead? She just seems like a "wishful thinking" card since I don't see anyway to set her up. It's different than, say, Deploy the Gatewatch where the math can be worked out during deck building to make it incredibly likely to hit free walkers.

If your interested in looking, check out my deck here for some other suggestions: Five Color Superfriends

Your lack of disturbs me. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Ob Nixilis Reignited are very good; being able to impact the board as soon as they drop. My issue with Nissa, Steward of Elements is that, other than playing her huge for the big beats, she does literally nothing. Another suggestion would be Oath of Liliana. This oath ends up generating SOOO many Zombie tokens from just playing your walkers and offers a nice T3 tempo play.

I would echo what mack10k said about going down some Chandra, Flamecaller, but also note that this card is just great against the Zombie decks. Combine Chandra, Flamecaller with adult nissa (Nissa, Vital Force) and you can repeatedly wrath tokens and zombies into oblivion. Maybe 2 main, 1 side. Also, I agree that Oath of Gideon seems not that great. Planeswalkers have the inevitability of winning and I cant see the extra 1 loyalty being that important. Plus the 1/1 tokens are pretty meh.

Up the removal factor (Declaration in Stone, Radiant Flames), go to 20 walkers and keep Deploy the Gatewatch cause it's so fun ;)

My other suggestions are all here: Five Color Superfriends

Oath of Chandra is a must for any PW with red. Also I would only run 2x Chandra, Flamecaller, and put in 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance. Also with all the Zombie decks running around now I would also play 4x Declaration in Stone. And Heart of Kiran x4. Take out the Oath of Gideon and (I know you won't like this) Deploy the Gatewatch. Nissa, Steward of Elements feels bad without creatures. I would also run 2 Sweltering Suns over Haze of Pollen.

Instead of Deploy the Gatewatch i'd look at Anointed Procession as a way of doubling down your tokens

SPICE MUST FLOW! Upvote for the cool concept. The deck is bonkers against against a goldfish, but I worry that something consistent and fast like RB/Mardu aggro would go under it and kill your walkers before the deck can get off the ground.

In playtesting, I found that Hedron Archive usually came out a bit later than when I would have liked it. Ramping to the first walker seems more powerful than ramping to Deploy the Gatewatch, so perhaps a cheap mana producer that could also act as a defender in the midgame? I'm thinking either Cultivator's Caravan, since it can get you mana earlier and later be crewed by creature tokens, or Channeler Initiate.

MidgeRub on Gideon on up, folks!

You might want to replace Deploy the Gatewatch with something since all the planeswalkers you are running are Gideons you would only get one off of it anyways

jonmaior I agree with you there and I think I need some Haze of Pollen for a fog affect to stall, but the problem I have been having is what to take out? If I take planeswalkers out, Deploy the Gatewatch is less effective.
