So I love Breya colors for Superfriends, yeah ok I lose Doubling season and a few Walkers [most green ones are jsut ramp so I'll live] Bur in return I get red, which i enjoy more for the extra card draw [and other effects like removal and distruption]

But still need help making sure the Walker line up looks good, I feel I have a bit too many and combined with a basic 36 land deck means half of my deck is already set up, leaving little room for extra cards since most of the deck will be artifacts to support the walkers [whether it is protecting with creatures, or boosting them via proliferate and mana rocks for ramp]

Things to note:~I want it to be a good deck but trying to Avoid infinite combos, also trying to keep my Price spike on walkers low [avoiding Karn and Jace Mind Sculptor basically]~Only one of each walker for now, so i never have to worry about dropping them and losing another copy in play.


Ajani Vengeant -Tap down and burn, plus getting ult off can destroy someone

Chandra, Torch of Defiance -Ramp and Card draw [combine with Sensei's Divining Top to know what i'm gonna exile], plus burn if needed

Dack Fayden - Draw power plus combine with Liquimetal Coating to steal ANYTHING :3

Daretti, Scrap Savant -Draw power, artifact recurrsion and if i combine ultimate with Mycosynth Lattice i can make walkers come back after losing loyalty

Dovin Baan - Draw and partial protection

Elspeth, Knight-Errant -Protection with blockers

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar -CHUMP BLOCKERS!!!! :P

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets -Best Jace for the deck while staying budget. Draw power, and partial protection

Kaya, Ghost Assassin -Nice versatility and can blink my ETB artifact creatures

Liliana of the Veil - Nice Disruption [yes i know she is over budgest compared to the rest of walkers but i own one already]

Nahiri, the Harbinger - Draw power and her minus can be good removal

Narset Transcendent -Mostly draw power, but can combine her minus with something like a tutor effect to get extra value [x2 call the gatewatch? x2 Demonic or Vampiric tutor? yes please]

Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker - he is great if i can get him down, all abilities are great and relevant

Ob Nixilis Reignited - Draw power and removal

Saheeli Rai - Ehhhh, in this deck she is debatable, the plus to scry is meh, but the minus could copy a mana rock for one turn to get the small extra mana, or copy an ETB artifact like Solemn Simulacrum for extra value

Sarkhan the Mad - So probably an odd choice, but his zero can be good card draw with Sensei's Divining Top and zero drop artifacts or lands so i don't ping him down, and his minus can trigger my own death triggers and replace the creature

Sorin, Grim Nemesis - Card draw mostly, but his potential removal is not to be ignored

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage - Tap things down mostly, keep plusing on most threatening things on board

Teferi, Temporal Archmage - Card drawn, untap anything, yeah he great

Tezzeret, Master of Metal -SO to stay away from my infinite combo i chose him over Tezzeret the Seeker and i feel his plus is nice way to get artifacts and his minus can potentially hit an opponent really hard.

I feel that adding some cheep dredge cards and plus 1 or 2 Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker might make using Dark Intimations to ultimate Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker the turn he comes out.

@Lame_Duck: This deck doesn't actually run into color problems very often, if ever. Basically, if you just name Utopia Sprawl for whatever color you have in your hand (white being the main one, for cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion). Fertile Ground and Oath of Nissa cover the other costs.

The only hard planeswalkers to cast are ones with 2 non-green colors in their costs. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker being the main two.

Whew boy. Interesting take on nekusar. I'm going to assume you are new to EDH, because there are a few cards in your list that are god awful in edh

Lightning Bolt the most broken card in modern, but as removal goes it's meh and for damage it's not worth the card space. Collective Brutality is also great in modern, but only because it counters burn. Archive Trap is hilarious in modern, and decent in mill for edh. Unfortunately seeing as mill is not your focus it is rather lackluster. Cruel Ultimatum, as devastating as its effects are, is not very effective for the 7 mana cmc and atrocious color requirements. Grim Lavamancer: same thing as lightning bolt. Fevered Visions is fun in standard, but lacks power in edh with the huge life totals. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker same thing as ultimatum. Venser's Journal is decent in edh, mostly because of its interaction with Necropotence.Higure, the Still Wind this dude is only useable if you are doing tribal ninjas. Molten-Tail Masticore yeah no. Not enough effect on the field. Ninja of the Deep Hours yeah... he is only good if you can get him for his ninjutsu early game, but you have no one drop creatures to exploit off of him.

Hello, Teddyjunior11

I'm from France, so the price of some cards in French are extremely low compare to their English counterparts.

I'd say it's not a Budget list due to Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker costing 9 Euros, and others Planeswalkers costing 4/5 Euros Each. Please note that a non-foil Ral Zarek costs approx' 5-6 Euros. Also note that a non-foil Liliana Vess costs less than 4 Euros.

On the other hand, Cruel Ultimatum is surprisingly cheap: less than 1 Euros. Same goes for Crater's Claws ( Less than 1 Euros ) Crux of Fate ( Less than 1 ) Izzet Charm ( 1 Euros ) and Electrolyze ( I got my playset for 6 Euros 50 Cts).

For the FULL deck ( Including Lands and Non-Foil cards ) you can get away with approx' 50-70 Euros.

Hope I answered your question Teddyjunior11 and thanks for your interest !
