DiverDown on Atraxa Superfriends Greatest Deck Ever Constructed

2 weeks ago

I mean I guess, but what I said still stands. Glad it works for you, but it might be best to cut the "No Better Deck" portion in the title. Please don't disregard my criticism either. You're excluding lots of other powerful walkers like Dovin Baan , Narset Transcendent , Sorin, Solemn Visitor who can all almost ult immediately with Doubling Season and stax the board with their emblems. Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and many others can develop a board of tokens which are just highly valuable especially under Humility . Some of the walkers you run feel really subpar and you're honestly not running enough of them to warrant calling it a superfriends deck in the presence of so many creatures too. Just because you are barely below 3 CMC on average doesn't make it any better than my Atraxa deck running nine more walkers than you at just barely above 3 CMC. Call of the Gatewatch is bad like the previous commenter stated, and you are going in way too many directions at the moment. You have no place in saying that there is no better deck out there, especially when you are not receptive of the obvious criticism you are getting. I very much advise you to remove that bit of ignorance from the title and description, regardless of whether or not you decide to implement any of this other advice from the comment section.

DarkStarStorm on Atraxa Superfriends with Thinner Deck Concept

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes only has one relevant ability for your deck, which is outclassed by Ajani Unyielding. He should be an auto include.

Will Kenrith seems like he would be outclassed by most planeswalkers. Dovin Baan, Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, anyone.

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and Sorin, Grim Nemesis deserve a spots in the deck, possibly over Ob Nixilis or Vivian Reid.

Settle the Score?

I realize that you have said that you're slowly building the manabase, insinuating that this is on a budget, but if you happen across a Captain Sisay, I would trade for or buy it.

Zimmers_0 The planeswalker deck walkers this time are confirmed as Dovin Baan and Domri Rade. So they should both be in the set with normal (more powerful) versions.

If a player controls a Stoic Angel and then activates Dovin Baan's third ability, how many permanents and what type of permanents will their opponents be able to untap during their untap steps?

BMHKain on Sliver Queen, Spark Harvesting Hive Mind

(JSYK, I had a minor Blackout so I couldn't respond earlier. Sorry... :/)

@griffstick: I appreciate your suggestions about this, but I was asking about what cuts I should do to get to 100? Oh, & I'll add Contagion Engine & Inexorable Tide. Even though both things are considered "Win-More" to many. I already have quite some engine anyway; although you are still, regardless, tempting me into that Plaguemaw Beast... XP

BTW, just looked up Smh. Either you're right about a mass Discard deck w/ Tibalt running either Olivia, Mobilized for War, or Malfegor, & I'm as Ambitious as I already know; moreso even now, or the fact I'm running would mean something regarding the 4 words; all Keywords. Well, I'm sorry about such a notion, but there probably is worse out there anyway; Hint: Eldrazi Displacer + Riftsweeper. & the deck isn't even .

But I digress.

This means I have 3 to add, but I added the following anyway:

Djeru, With Eyes Open

Thalia's Lancers

Ajani Vengeant

Ral, Caller of Storms

Angrath, the Flame-Chained

Dovin Baan

Liliana, the Necromancer

Garruk Wildspeaker

Jace, the Living Guildpact

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

Samut, the Tested

Tezzeret, Artifice Master

& some permanent that can also copy Activated Abilities (Since Rowan Kenrith is getting the red light despite Ensnaring Bridge, Meekstone, & even Dueling Grounds...)


Would Tawnos, Urza's Apprentice apply? I could activate his ability to copy Rings of Brighthearth to add an additional activation. Does this work that way? If so, I have 4 cards in addition to cut. What walkers should I cut? I guess Dovin Baan has negligible abilities... So, which to cut to 100? & thanks, griffstick. I'll use at least 3 of what you suggested... :D

BMHKain on Which Walker alts to add?

3 months ago

Sliver Queen, Spark Harvesting Hive Mind

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Since I can't seem to try & contact someone, I'll just state I'm planning to update my Superfriends Deck. However, I actually have a slightly differing path this time:

Some Planeswalkers' will be replaced w/ a card of similar Loyalty Ability...

Elspeth, Knight-Errant -> Avacyn, Angel of Hope

Rowan Kenrith/Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast -> ??? (I'll leave you to decide...)

Dovin Baan = A one sided Static Orb

Ajani Vengeant = A copyable Armageddon

Samut, the Tested

Jace, the Living Guildpact = Day's Undoing on an enemy turn/Temporal Cascade entwined.

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets = "A Banned Card"

Angrath, the Flame-Chained for Graveyard Abuse.

Liliana Vess = Vampiric Tutor w/o life cost, etc.

Garruk Wildspeaker

Liliana, the Necromancer = quite some decent stuff!)

Ral, Caller of Storms = Card Advantage, & then some...

Tezzeret, Artifice Master = Tokens that fly, & a built in Planar Bridge.

Other stuff:

Djeru, With Eyes Open = it tutors for walkers!

Thalia's Lancers = Search for any Legendary!

There are several others I'll mention later on. I'd like some opinions about these. & yes, I'd like a card that can copy a card twice for stuff like this.

Also, just so I don't depend on Ultimates alone, I'd like some suggestions for Planeswalkers Combo utilizing Loyalty abilities; and no, using The Chain Veil doesn't count... Good luck! :) & I'll be updating my other decks as well if anyone cares...

Oh! Also Liliana Vess seems not very good; though the ult is a game winner, the +1 is really weak. The same is true for Vraska the Unseen and Dovin Baan. Captain Sisay is probably a better tutor than Djeru, With Eyes Open, though it doesn't soften hits and its body is a little smaller.
