Teyo, the Shieldmage Discussion
4 weeks ago
Yup, okay so I'm digging this concept.
So I think the first order of business is exploring the different paths Palladia would take upon being reawakened.
Option 1: Helping Bolas Escape
The Steps: First, she'd have to learn what a planeswalker is, as far as I can tell from the lore, she has not met on nor does she know of their existence (She's been asleep for long time). So she would probably have to meet some more knowledgeable people, perhaps the crew of the Weatherlight battled her? Perhaps she does defeat them and learn the secret from an impressionable you Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, maybe she keeps the weatherlight. After knowing what a planeswalker is, she'd need to learn of Bolas' imprisonment. ATM only three beings know of this, Jace Beleren, Ugin, and Bolas himself. IDK how she'd learn of this but we can get into that detail after she's a planeswalker. Now, she needs to become a planeswalker. In her day, all you had to do to become a planeswalker was gather a ton of mana. Assuming this is post-mending she'd have to be born with a spark, or a spark would have to be given, or perhaps taken. What if a young planeswalker like Teyo, the Shieldmage stumbled upon her path? She could take his spark with the help of her followers, and ascend to be a planeswalker. Additionally, she could use a Planar Portal to traverse the planes. Or maybe she met Tezzeret, who has the planar bridge inside him and struck a deal to travel to another plane, but this is unlikely because Tezzeret has sworn not to serve another dragon. Okay, so Palladia can traverse planes, what next? Now she has to search for info on Bolas and Ugin. This could take centuries, not only are their histories as old as Dominaria but they've both been to so many planes. A possible encounter is with Azor, the Lawbringer on Ixalan where she learns of their plans to trap bolas. She could travel to Ravnica, though this would be hard due to everyone being on watch for planeswalkers. But if she did, she would learn about the war and stuff, and that Bolas might be dead or is thought dead. Now, in order to find where Bolas is, she'd need to find Jace, Idk how she would, he's sort of on and off with Vraska on ravnica as of late and he's a tough cookie to crack, maybe she could hire another mind reader? Either way, she gets the info and now has to find the meditation realm. As of recently, Ugin, Sarkhan, Niv Mizzet, Ashiok, Narset, and Tetsuko Umezawa know of the meditation realm. Of these Sarkhan would provide the best guide, as she could control him again (this seems to be a recurring theme with him). So she finds the realm and stuff but look out now she has to fight Ugin. But wait, what if she fixed The Immortal Sun? Boom Ugin can't escape and now she's fighting him. The point is Ugin needs to lose, but I don't know how Palladia could do that as Ugin is way more experienced than her. Maybe she attains mastery of the meditation realm? There is also, what I think would be the most epic thing ever, where she kills Sarkhan and gives Bolas Sarkhans spark. Bolas kills Ugin and is free. Maybe he kills Palladia right there and then, maybe she somehow kills him? Maybe he becomes her underling, lots of possibilities. So that's that whole destiny right there.
Option 2: Taking over
Palladia wakes up and decides to finally conquer Dominaria. The fractured remnants of the cabal rally behind her. She has a few obstacles though. Shiv won't go down without a fight, especially with Darigaaz defending it, neither will Benalia or Tolaria and then there's the whole Weatherlight crew to deal with. Maybe include Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Squee, the Immortal, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker. Overall, it's a very difficult crusade, include key enemies such as Lyra Dawnbringer and Radha, Heir to Keld. Finally, after a decade-long war, Palladia rules all of Dominaria.
Option 3: Palladia Mors, Ruiner of Planes
Somehow (literally any of the ways I listed in 1) Palladia finds a way to move plane to plane, she takes it upon herself to sow chaos and bloodshed throughout, collecting trinkets of victory as she goes, maybe she takes the Seal of the Guildpact from Ravnica and Obelisk of Alara from Alara. Ooooo maybe Shadowspear if she defeats Elspeth wherever she goes.
That's just a few of the options for her that I could come up with, I personally think #1 could make a good fan fic
Hope you like feedback, this deck looks sweet.

If you want something to help you survive the early game, Wall of Omens has a pretty decent amount of thoughness and helps you dig through your deck to find other options.
If budget is not a problem, Idyllic Tutor should help you find the ascencion directly. If budget is a problem, Sphere of Safety can easily hold your ground for long enough, I hope. Independently of any of these, I think you should replace the Scythes for more copies of the ascensions as the Scythe is kinda mana expensive and has little synergy.
I'd also suggest Teyo, the Shieldmage as a sideboard tech against matchups like Burn and Discard.

Hey, flashing out Ephara, God of the Polis Ephara, God of the Polis could be super nice card draw. With enough cheap creatures maybe token making you can draw a lot of cards. Another one to consider Lavinia of the Tenth . Then I find Search for Azcanta Flip strong card and flashable. As for interruption of your opponent's plans Narset, Parter of Veils flash this when your opponent is about to draw a million cards, feels super good.
I could also see Teyo, the Shieldmage and The Wanderer beeing really strong in this kind of deck. Usually, planeswalker don't really feel good to flash, since you cant activate their abilities, but with these 2 you can really abuse their passives.

I've been messing around with a similar build that focuses more on agro and card advantage. Several suggestions... Skeleton Key Aqueous Form Curiosity Assualt Formation Teyo, the Shieldmage Rolling Stones Wall of Runes . Skulk seems like an awesome way to take advantage of high alert effects.

Benthehen333 - Absolutely! Not a problem. Excited to see the "Still Budget Upgrade List" for sure! I'm hoping to branch out and get more fun "Budget" decks after I made my first EDH Deck modeled after a Voltron Kozilek, the Great Distortion . The deck is a little strong for my meta as well, with the exception of two other not budget decks. If you care to see it: Koz, Colorless EDH Deck
To answer your question I looked at The Tax Man Cometh by KayneMarco and I would prefer you didn't by Molesto-the-Egregious as references: Disruptive Student , Vodalian Mage , Disruptive Pitmage , Turn Aside , Approach of the Second Sun , Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor , Dovin, Hand of Control , God-Pharaoh's Statue , Monastery Siege , War Tax , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Daxos of Meletis , Baird, Steward of Argive , Aven Mindcensor , Teyo, the Shieldmage , The Wanderer , Time Wipe , Foresee , Azor's Elocutors , and Marble Diamond are several Non-Land Sub $1 cards I saw in there as well. The list goes on, for sure. I didn't look into it beyond this but any W/U or Colorless card that let's you draw when an opponent draws would be fantastic. Mind's Eye would be a good Sub $5 card I know of, if there were to be upgrades in that deck.

Here's a new take on Teyo, the Shieldmage doing Wall Tribal.
Teyo, Guardian of the People
Legendary Planeswalker - Teyo
+1 Create a 0/3 white Wall creature token with defender.
0 As an additional cost, exile three Wall creatures you control. Exile target creature.
-7 You get an emblem with "Walls you control are indestructible and have hexproof. At the beginning of each upkeep, create a 0/3 white Wall creature token with defender and flying."
Using this version of Teyo as an Oathbreaker, make a solid Signature Spell to run alongside his deck.
