True that! Thanks boss just learned that myself. Changed it out for Kira, Great Glass-Spinner because who needs money anyways. Thanks for the advice!

MJS154 Thank you for the suggestion with Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep , but Slinn is a bit too expensive to make an impact in Modern. At its worst, it's a vanilla 8/8 for 8 that's one Path to Exile away from getting murdered, and at its best, it's an 8/8 for 10 with a worse Awoken Horror effect.

PhyrexianPreator Ashiok is a pretty great card for this deck! The only problem is that my meta runs absolutely zero graveyard-dependent decks. No Izzet Phoenix, no Dredge, not even the rare budget Reanimator/Grishoalbrand list. The other issue is that Turn 3 is a VERY important turn for this deck. Turns 1 and 2 are spent setting up Pteramander or Thing in the Ice  Flip, and sometimes setting up my draws with Serum Visions to prepare for the rest of the game. All of my Turn 3 plays are flashed in or at instant speed (besides Kira, Great Glass-Spinner -- still testing) so that I'm able to counter anything I may need to. I'll definitely try him out though if graveyard decks pick up at my LGS.

Oath of Kasmina Legendary Enchantment

When Oath of Kasmina enters the battlefield, return up to one target creature to its owner's hand.

Whenever a creature you control becomes the target of a spell or ability your opponent controls, counter it unless they pay .

Return Oath of Kasmina to its owner's hand.


I really love the new Kasmina Planeswalker's flavor and how she protects her creatures with her static ability. I also think the repeated bounce effects would work wonders for most creatures with ETB effects on your side of the field not to mention being able to constantly bounce an opposing threat.

Hopefully all of this seems fair. It ended up being kind of a Venser, Shaper Savant and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner hybrid. That might make it too powerful, I'm not sure.

I thought of giving this Flash but I think you could abuse that too easily.


Create a new Dack Fayden themed card since we didn't get to see any of him in this new set. It doesn't have to be a Planeswalker.

if you're running a lot of big creatures then you may want a Kira, Great Glass-Spinner . Since you run a few mana rocks and Isochron Scepter you may want to run Dramatic Reversal to create infinite mana. Paradox Haze is amazing with Sen. What are you really trying to build around?

I agree with Catpocolypse. I think it's very important for the creature that you're polymorphing for is something with hexproof/shroud (so it doesn't just get removed after all that set up), Inkwell Leviathan fits well with stormtide, but stormtide is vulnerable to removal. I could recommend more but I'm not sure what your budget is because I also think that you could use better legendary creatures, like Thalia, Heretic Cathar , Baral, Chief of Compliance , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Kira, Great Glass-Spinner , Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip or Geist of Saint Traft are a great choice and there's plenty more good choices I can't think of. Keep working on it and The Gatherer is your best friend :)

Oh, I forgot about the best replacement I found for Shalai. Kira, Great Glass-Spinner protects each of your creatures once per turn in an odd shroudy counter way and unlike Shalai it also protects itself. It's what I use in my Lavinia deck - We play at MY tempo
