Mu Yanling Discussion

Arena Rector serves an important secondary function in a deck - it makes it very scary to attack you. Even if you never get to use its tutor effect, players will be extremely reluctant to toss any large, non-flying creatures in your direction.

I would also argue that, when playing superfriends, the ultimate abilities should not be what you design your synergies around. While there are situations where Mu Yanling will win you the game, often she is just going to sit about doing relatively little for a six-drop.

cdkime I totally agree that the chain veil and doubling season would be great additions. Unfortunately, Doubling Season is too out of budget for me for a single card. If it dropped like 10 i'd definitely consider it more.

Arena Rector I considered in my last singles buy, except that the dying trigger keeps me a little cautious, and since she's not an ally there's no real good way to tutor her out of the deck.

My biggest problem with running the boardwipes is that this deck is a superfriends/ally merge. So while you are playing superfriends, you also are playing allies. And there are times when your board is ten allies, in which pulling a boardwipe isn't as much of help.

In regards to Mu Yanling she's part of a win con, which is primarily why I keep her around. Teamed up with Vraska the Unseen 's ult, she ends it. Venser, the Sojourner does the same thing, but Venser is a much more threatening planeswalker whereas more people will just ignore Yanling.

Ral, Caller of Storms I'm more on the fence about. His card draw is nice mid game, when with some of the other planeswalkers you can be putting like 4 cards into your hand a turn. But I agree he's still a little lackluster, so I might remove him.

Thanks for the advice! I'm definitely going to look back into the planeswalker loyalty boost and maybe some more ramp and look over Ral and some of the other mediocre planeswalkers in the deck

The Chain Veil is an extremely powerful card in Superfriends.

Doubling Season is another extremely powerful card in superfriends, as it doubles loyalty counters placed on Planeswalkers when they enter the battlefield (note: it does not double increases due to loyalty ability costs). Just as importantly, it doubles the tokens you create with your planeswalker's loyalty abilities.

Arena Rector is a pretty decent option for free planeswalkers.

You are extremely light on interaction such as counterspells, removal, or board wipes. Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Damnation , Blasphemous Act , and Toxic Deluge are all particularly strong in superfriends, as you can clear your opponents' boards while leaving your own relatively untouched. Swords to Plowshares , Counterspell , and Cyclonic Rift are all cards you probably should be running.

You probably also want more ramp, such as signets or cards that fetch lands .

Trazi enables a particularly lethal infinite combo with Food Chain , though Food Chain is expensive and such a combo might be a bit too strong for a casual meta.

I would recommend cutting both Mu Yanling and Ral, Caller of Storms as they are incredibly mediocre and costly to cast.

Mu Yanling and Jiang Yanggu are not considered EDH legal by the site. The cards are legal in eternal formats per this article: Global Series: Meet Jiang Yanggu and Mu Yanling . I don't know if only the planeswalkers or all the new cards from the series are considered illegal by TappedOut's settings, but thought I would post this so people would notice. I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this either, but it could be moved to another that is more pertinent.

I've noticed that Game Night cards like Avatar of Growth and Mu Yanling are still flagged as "not legal in any format" even though they should be legal in Legacy, Vintage, and Commander.

Mu Yanling and Rhythmic Water Vortex are still showing as not legal in any format, and that is not true. They’re both legal in Commander/EDH, Legacy, and Vintage. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Added a lot to the deck. But since this is a challenge, I just want everyone's input. Remember: Creatureless, 5 Color, & I added Nexus of Fate since Mu Yanling was rejected. Any ideas? Combos to come...

With regards to your questions on the Legend Rule, the questions do not make sense. You refer to "legendary" as a subtype, when it is, in fact, a supertype. You further do not seem to understand what Mirror Gallery does, and your question is a tad nonsensical as a result. Still, in the interest of helping you, I have written a mini lecture on the Legend Rule, with a particular focus on how it interacts with planeswalkers.

The Legend Rule reads:

704.5j If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.”

Wizards has had some trouble getting "legendary" and the Legend Rule correct. This was further complicated by the similar "Planeswalker Uniqueness Rule" which has subsequently been removed. Planeswalkers now fall within the confines of the regular Legend Rule:

306.4. Previously, planeswalkers were subject to a “planeswalker uniqueness rule” that stopped a player from controlling two planeswalkers of the same planeswalker type. This rule has been removed and planeswalker cards printed before this change have received errata in the Oracle card reference to have the legendary supertype. Like other legendary permanents, they are subject to the “legend rule” (see rule 704.5j).

Rules out of the way, how does this work for Planeswalkers?

First, all planeswalkers have received the "Legendary" supertype as errata. So, where Narset Transcendent previously said "Planeswalker - Narset" her Oracle text, which controls, reads "Legendary Planeswalker - Narset".

Next, it's the same rule as with creatures, artifacts, or other legendary permenants - if you control two legendary permanents with the same exact card name, one is sent to the graveyard as a state-based action. The subtype (i.e. the planeswalker type) is irrelevant. This might be a change from the Planeswalker uniqueness rule, but it is in line with other permanents--after all, you can control two "Legendary Creature - Elf Warrior" so long as the card names do not match (ex. you can control both Grand Warlord Radha and Radha, Heir to Keld).

So, looking at planeswalkers specifically, this means you can control both Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Jace, Unraveler of Secrets at the same time. However, you would not be able to control two Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

Mirror Gallery is an odd card that says Rule 704.5j no longer applies--permanents are not sent to the graveyard as a state-based action if you control two copies with the same name. With Mirror Gallery in play, you (or your opponents) can have as many copies of Grand Warlord Radha on the battlefield as you want.

Mirror Gallery does not remove the legendary supertype, or any cards that interact with Legendary permanents--it merely stops the state-based action from occurring.

As previously discussed, planeswalkers initially were not covered by the Legend Rule, but by the Planeswalker Uniqueness Rule. However, with this rule removed, Mirror Gallery applies to planeswalkers as well. With a Mirror Gallery in play, you (or your opponents) can control multiple cards named Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

With regards to the deck, you can cut Mu Yanling. She's a bad card to begin with, made worse by almost all your creatures being tokens.
