Hey all, thanks for the comments on the page. Sorry for taking a little while to get to you. I'll address each of your comments in bullet points:

  • abierto - thanks for the compliment! No. Not going to switch to Intruder Alarm . Something about it just rubs me the wrong way, and besides I know that Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker is roaming about in my meta - that is a card I don't want to unwittingly enable.

  • _Delta_ - I won't call Worldly Tutor a replacement, only a temporary stand in. I think the rules committee are wrong, plain and simple. Besides, with their history they have a weird habit of just unbanning ridiculous cards. It's likely they'll just unban Paradox Engine on a whim...just like Painter's Servant or Protean Hulk .

  • Fellin22 - Sensei's Divining Top ? It's okay - there are plenty of decks that don't really care about top deck manipulation. Additionally, it's not super disruptive to play. Iona is a definitely a problem though - she's Leovold, Emissary of Trest level annoying. Now that is a proper ban.

  • Nephs - I have to disagree with you on that one. Paradox Engine was hardly an "auto-include" or an "auto win" because you have to build your deck and boardstate around Engine just enough to make it truly work on a consistent basis. With multiple mana-rocks, sure you can flood a board state and maybe dump your hand, but what are you going to use to tutor/draw more cards? I guess what i'm trying to say is that in order for Paradox Engine to win you the game, you need to assemble something of a Rube Goldberg Machine to get it working. I will agree to the point that it can help accelerate a player's boardstate - but without the right pieces in play...it only serves as a big target that can only help you so much. Again - I disagree with your logic.

I think Narset, Parter of Veils could be pretty sick in this deck. Does what Leovold, Emissary of Trest did for all our wheels.

I think its largely irrelevant to keep arguing. I think anyone that thinks they would be OP should just build a deck and playtest it in their group.

If you want to argue OP Planeswalkers, you should probably argue for something that isn't Elspeth, Sun's Champion which would be really bad no matter how you spin it. She makes a couple tokens, or board wipes, for a ridiculous amount of mana. She doesn't have any innate combo potential with The Chain Veil , she can't run Doubling Season or Deepglow Skate . Some Planeswalkers would be powerful, Elspeth would be pretty damn Casual. Let's not even get into the fact, Mono-White...

You need abilities that impact the game in a significant way. Teferi, Temporal Archmage is good because he has abilities that can win the game, and he can run Stax effects without hurting himself much. Any deck worth it's weight can give Teferi a run for his money though. He shouldn't be banned, because he isn't that oppressive. He wins games, sometimes, and there are plenty of decks that can beat him.

Think about how many Planeswalkers are actually worth running, then figure out which of those would be good in the Command Zone. Are those you have left over ban worthy? I don't think so.

I play cEDH and I have Atraxa Superfriends to play as my pimp/Casual deck. Planeswalkers are cool, they are fun, and I love them, but Planeswalkers =/= Competitive. 95% of them would be perfectly find in the Command Zone, and a few would build really good decks, but I don't see any as oppressive as Leovold, Emissary of Trest for example.
