Hi, i am building my own superfriends deck right now i really like the version you have decided to go with, with minimum creatures and use tokens as blockers :) I was wondering if you might give your thougths on some planeswalkers/cards you haven't included and some more feedback on your inclusions?

What do you think of:

  • Garruk, Apex Predator: His emblem is weak in this deck, but he puts out very good blockers and has removal for both planeswalkers and creatures. What makes him excluded from the deck?

  • Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury: Her 2 first abilities seems very good with ramp and removal, is it not powerful enough to impact the board?

  • Gideon, Ally of Zendikar: I see that he is not as powerful, but his tokens are very nice. I want to include him in my build as i have one, but what do you think of him and is he even the best gideon to include?

  • Sorin, Grim Nemesis: His +1 seems really good also since a lot of planeswalkers has a CMC of 4-5, and he has decent removal, i see that Sorin, Solemn Visitor emblem is very strong, but would you think running both would be an option?

  • Jace Beleren: Is his impact to little?

  • Kiora, the Crashing Wave: Her emblem seems to be much more impactful than Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath.

  • As Foretold: Somewhat early drop and seems good on curve with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

  • Sphere of Safety: Seems to be a good include with the decent amount of enchantments in the deck, doesn't it seem to be worth running as it will slow a lot of swarm strategies down?

With the printing of The Immortal Sun how have you been able to deal with it? Might it be to consider Krosan Grip to remove such a piece to make sure it wont be countered?

How have these performed?

Lastly, as planeswalkers are really great, it is hard to stop oneself from including to many, would you yourself like to run more than your 21 at the moment?

Some more spoilers:

Virtaz's Vritue

Virtaz's Virtue


For each player, choose friend or foe. Each friend returns a creature card from their graveyard to their hand. Each foe sacrifices a creature.

This card is funny, but I don't think it's all that playable:

Arena Rector

You're more limited by there not being any really obscene planeswalkers (vs. Academy Rector which grabs Omniscience or Yawgmoth's Bargain). About the most broken thing you can get is Garruk, Apex Predator or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon.

This is also interesting:

Game Plan

It's a solid EDH card because players that are behind will help you cast it. It's not completely unplayable in 2HG, either, since you and your teammate can each play 3 mana to help cast it, meaning you can cast it early on. It's especially powerful if your team was able to dump most of the cards out of their hands first and letting the other team only draw 3 or 4 cards.

It also feels like there's better reprints than Iconic Masters lol:

Skulloelegy. Copied your deck, gave you some props, and named my deck in homage to yours.

I have a Garruk, Apex Predator currently in my 5C good stuff.

Since you already know the deck, do you think it would be a good include or too clunky?

Nitropotent on Tibalt Lore.... where is it?

Off-topic, but I want to know where did Garruk, Apex Predator go after planeswalking away. It's been about 4 years since Gurrak was never seen.

Nobody knows for sure (except maybe the artist), but I'm guessing the character on Winterflame is Shaman of the Great Hunt (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right), who is possibly Chianul (from the flavor text).There's more about Temur shamans, Chinual, and the Dragon's Throat in this guide and he or she also left some flavor text on these three cards.

But yeah, it could be Garruk, Apex Predator (even though the axe silhouette isn't quite right for him either). Garruk has never officially been to Tarkir, but he could have travelled there right after meeting the Planeswalker 'Icy' at the end of this story, if maybe he thought Icy came from Tarkir or something ...

Need ways to interact that do not rely on creature sacrifice, and need ways to counter opponents' lands (e.g. Arcane Lighthouse). May consider Vraska the Unseen or Garruk, Apex Predator over Freyalise to better snipe creatures.

  1. Ogre Battledriver -> Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
  2. Rogue's Passage -> Dust Bowl
  3. Kessig Wolf Run -> Westvale Abbey  Flip
