Why Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted over Ob Nixilis Reignited ? I think the ladder is just better.

I'm looking to build a grixis superfriends deck and am looking for these cards. I have just updated my binder with everything I currently have.

Oh okay! If you're having land/card advantage issues, some Jace might be a good fit. But other than that...any Planeswalkers that can heavily drive you to victory work. A few on the top of my head:

And lastly, of course I must suggest Doubling Season (budget permitting).

I like the design space offered by this inclusion from war of the spark. It creates a greater range of diversified walkers. We just lost Gideon for the foreseeable future for being a more combat oriented planeswalker/creature hybrid. I wouldn’t want to limit wizards in terms of creative design space by saying “three abilities mandatory, no extra ones either”.

Compared to the previous group of walker design space that have nearly been pushed to Ad Nauseam . I personally don’t want more of the same thing as the basic: Five mana casting cost, +1 card advantage, -3 kill something, -8 ult and win, flavored to whatever color they are in walkers. Ob Nixilis Reignited , Ral, Izzet Viceroy , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Vivien Reid etc. This design space has been filled, do something new.

Cool deck!

Personally, I would lose the discard sub-theme and one-use cards like tutors and less-value draw to make room for cards with more synergy.

Suggestions for cuts :

  • Counterflux
  • Vision Skeins
  • Diabolic Tutor
  • Mystic Retrieval
  • Pull from the Deep
  • Liliana's Caress
  • Megrim
  • Waste Not
  • Geth's Grimoire

Suggestions for adds:

Hope this helps!

Samut, the Tested cannot be a commander.

Only legendary creatures and other cards that say "CARDNAME can be your commander" can be your commander.

For example, Mayael the Anima or Samut, Voice of Dissent can be your commander. So can Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath - note the text at the bottom declaring he can be your commander. Only a small subset of Planeswalkers can be commanders.

Some playgroups use a variation of the rules to allow any Planeswalker to be a commander, or play a Commander variant that otherwise allows this, but it's not part of the common ruleset.

Regarding another detail here..

All planeswalkers are legendary now. There was a rules change awhile back to make it so, and at the same time it removed the "planeswalker uniqueness rule" so you can have multiple planeswalker cards depicting the same character, as long as they are not the exact same one.

For example you can control Ob Nixilis Reignited and Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath at the same time without having to put one into a graveyard, even though neither of those has the Legendary printed on the most recent edition of the card, it is something all planeswalkers have now. If you get a second copy of Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath into play, you must choose one to keep due to the Legendary rule.
