HangDoll on Should WotC Allow All PW ...

I think what people who are saying "No, doubling season should be banned because X, Y and Z combo" are missing the problem. First it heavily skews the power of a Planeswalker in favor of green. This is a problem. Sure its not always going to be just game winning on the spot, depending on the walker, but the primary point of EDH is to have fun. And with a two card combo like that that is not only degenerate but also heavily restricts what you should be playing to a very specific color, this is a problem. Also all those infinite combo commanders listed above are extremely oppressive commanders.

But lets see who would be the best planeswalkers to use with doubling season. Samut, the Tested, Sarkhan Unbroken,Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Vraska, Relic Seeker. And over these, Tamiyo would be the least fun to play against. While some of the listed cards other people have listed have problems asociated with them, they don't quite have the advantage that something like Tamiyo has. Look at her!Draws cards, taps down permanents and gives you a ancestral visions+omniscience? She will just lock people up in a stacks board more effectively than any other commander while also drawing you cards. You could reliable tun her with stasis and winter orb without fear! I think she'd be miserable to play against without doubling season. But with it? Pff... yeah, no.

Hey, Just piecing together superfiends of my own Pro-walking. I was just wondering when you last updated your list. Seems like there are some powerhouse cards that are missing Chandra, Torch of Defiance , Nicol Bolas, God-Pharoh ,Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Deepglow Skate, Vraska, Relic Seeker, Tamiyo, Field Researcher are the most notable in my opinion. Do you feel that these cards aren't good enough or have you just not reworked the list?

Overall i am a fan of what you have put together, just one always wonders.

Atraxablaster on "Fun." .... What a frivolity!

Well i do like your suggestions Winterblast and I also double checked the list, and I am running Chrome Mox and a few others you spoke of. And I do plan on getting the better rocks when the budget allows me too! And as far as the playtesting goes, my color fixing is practically perfect. I rarely ever end up without the colors I need for cards like Cryptic Command, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, and Tamiyo, Field Researcher. My strategy is a toolbox prison deck. Hence the massive amounts of included search cards. This allowed me to get the pieces I need fast in order to implement my strategy of locking down the table. And as for a wincon I use my commander to swing in for damage to win. But I've had alot of games end with the rest of the table scooping because I made the game simply unplayable! But I do like the helm and leyline combo! It would be worth a test run for sure! So thank you for your input! I really do appreciate it!

Reki, the History of Kamigawa let's you draw a card whenever you play a planeswalker. Just to be funny I have it and Archmage Ascension, so whenever I have Tamiyo, Field Researcher's emblem, I freecast all of my planeswalkers, oaths and The Chain Veil

Kjartan As I decided to build this deck I made many changes that are not posted due to lack of time. I completely took out the Doomed Traveler and a few planeswalkers and made room for Spell Queller. I am also not running Chain Veil as I saw how little it would help in play testing. I added and took a few other cards here or there and played at my LGS. I went 2 and 2, lost against Tron and Storm. The decks I won against were slower or they just had less straight up attackers. In all games I found Jace, Cunning Castaway to be useless as you said and i am definitely going to remove him. Narset actually helped out a lot through the games, she was either getting me a planeswalker or a counter spell 2 out of 3 times. The mana base i actually made for the splashing of green was perfect every game, never had no green when Tamiyo, Field Researcher was in my hand but then found her ability to help me very little. And basically everything you commented on was true in play testing. I normally just make decks based on the cards i have and if it feel they would be fun or not, this was definitely fun. When I started going off with ultimates and some combos i added in there was a crowd around my table, which is always fun. Defintely gonna try some of your additions, i really appreciate the tips. Thank you :D

Kjartan on Blue/White Planeswalkers

You seem to have a lot of cards that really doesn't belong here...

Ajani, Caller of the Pride... He's basicly just pay three mana get a permanent that exists.

Elspeth Tirel - Well she does things, can't argue with that, but with the amount of support you have for her, when is she ever going to be worth 5 mana?

Venser, the Sojourner - He's seriously a good card, but what use you have of him comes down to resetting planeswalkers that are low on counters until he ults. That's really underpowered.

Tamiyo, Field Researcher - She's better than the others, but again with your lack of support, I don't thing she's worth splashing an entire colour for. Especially not in a deck with Cryptic Command.

Gideon, Champion of Justice - He's just one of the worst cards ever printed in modern magic.

Jace, Cunning Castaway - Worst jace, and you are extremely low on support for his first ability.

Narset Transcendent - Is surprisingly bad for her cost. I think you can run her if you want, but with so few sorceries, you should at least consider cutting her.

The Chain Veil - I know you've kinda build the deck around this, and I understand if you wish to keep it, but it's really, really underpowered.

Doomed Traveler - He's fine, but you can find a better spot to replace him.

Sage of Epityr - He's also fine, but again, you can easily find a better card.

I would look into getting a better protective game. Wall of Omens is a fine and protective creature.

Gideon Jura + Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Gideon of the Trials is a really good package in a superfirends style deck. There is also Jace, Architect of Thought And/or Elspeth, Sun's Champion. But ultimately you should watch out, having too many planeswalkers is rarely a good idea.

If you really do want to go balls deep into the planeswalker theme, (which I do not recommand), Savor the Moment is much, much better than The Chain Veil, and Temporal Mastery is also at least playable in that case. Also Contagion Engine is a possibility, but it's pretty slow, and probably shouldn't be in the main.
