wildcardde on Yarok's Toolbox : Primer

What do you think of Venser, Shaper Savant ? With Yarok and and infinite mana engine he can bounce every opponent back to turn 1, while still having decent disruption utility if you draw him before being fully set up. Even with just Yarok a four mana buybacked Capsize with weird counter-ish potential seems worth a slot.

Rakdos, Demon Lord

Legendary Planeswalker - Rakdos

If a spell or ability would cause its controller to gain life, that player loses that much life instead.

+2: Add or equal to the total life lost this turn by opponents.

-1: Create a 5/5 black Demon creature token with flying and trample.

-13: Each player gets and emblem with, "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice half the non-Demon permanents they control, rounded up."


I'd like a pre-spark planeswalker, not a flip-into-walker, like from Origins.

E.G. Ob Nixilis, the Fallen , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , Venser, Shaper Savant , Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , Xenagos, God of Revels , etc.

Seems like a good start, but I think it lacks a little oomph! I have a flicker deck that I'm very fond of, so I'll throw out some cool thematic cards to be aware of (most will be better for Commander format than Modern), and you can play with whatever fits your playstyle. Ephara, God of the Polis , Venser, the Sojourner , Restoration Angel , Deadeye Navigator , Strionic Resonator , Flickerwisp , and though they're obscenely expensive Snapcaster Mage and Celestial Colonnade both can add a lot to this sort of deck. My two strongest recommendations are Panharmonicon which has obvious benefits and Venser, Shaper Savant which seems like a soft counterspell until you realize it can target lands and let you nuke someone's mana base back into the dark ages. Super anti-fun but incredibly powerful.

Cuickbrownfox1: Once you assemble your infinite mana engine, you can also bounce all your opponents' permanents using Venser, Shaper Savant and then just beat with commander damage.
