Venser, the Sojourner Discussion

You could probably play Venser, the Sojourner if you want to flicker-lock with Stonehorn Dignitary

Just because there are better six Mana options does not necessarily mean a card is bad. It's not black and white, there are shades of Gray (50 of them, to be precise). That's like saying Dragonlord Ojutai or Venser, the Sojourner are bad cards because Teferi, Hero of Dominaria exists. Honestly, these cards are exciting and fun, other than, as the fact that they have been over printing Planeswalkers.

Also DemonDragonJ we don't know if this is related to the story, it's from a core set. Like Sarkhan didn't really appear much in the most recent stories and he was a core set Planeswalkers last year.

That doesn't work. Essence Flux and Voidwalk specifically say "to the battlefield under its owner's control."

You want Cloudshift , Synod Sanctum , Venser, the Sojourner , or Ghostly Flicker .

Bonus points for Nucklavee , because you can target it and the stolen creature with Ghostly Flicker , and then the Nucklavee returns, you get back a Ghostly Flicker (as the blue instant), and the Threaten (as the red sorcery).

AmerginTheWraith: The Tef was a no brainer for me, my brother managed to pull one during prerelease and it's pretty awesome. I just wish I had the money to spend on a Venser, the Sojourner since it can also blink Niv for the ETB Trigger. Almost every single New-Mizzet list I've seen runs a copy of Venser. If I ever manage to trade or get one somehow, he'll definitely find a spot on the list, but for know I'd rather stick to this semi-budget thing I've got going on.

Metallic Mimic , Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , & Grateful Apparition seem to pair up well with each other. Tezzeret's Gambit fits with them as well. Venser, the Sojourner seems like a possible fit, too, though his CMC isn't ideal. I'm guessing you'd get more mileage out of Dovin, Grand Arbiter . Unclaimed Territory or Ancient Ziggurat seem like possible land additions.

Sideboard ideas: Blessed Alliance , Nevermore , Revoke Existence (super against stuff like Hangarback Walker , etc) Ratchet Bomb , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality , Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Teyo, the Shieldmage are cheaper than Leyline of Sanctity , Celestial Purge

Even for superfriends Dovin Baan is kinda meh most of The time you just get 1 card and 2 live which isn't worth 4 mana. Gilded Lotus would also be on my chopping board if you lack means to untap a couple of times in your turn,5 mana ramp that is supectable to removal is too risky in my opinion beside it's almost a curvetopper in your deck either take something like Commander's Sphere or Darksteel Ingot or add a land(32 lands seem kinda few). Also I don't think that your deck can really utilise Venser, the Sojourner as you run few creatures.

You saying I should cut Saheeli, Sublime Artificer ? Just checking to be sure.

Well I was really looking for validation, what do you copying with her?

How long would I take for me to say: I changed my mind back to Sliver Queen .

HMMM i do think this is your worst option out of the three i think najella is directly better for this deck and the hard discussion for me is between najella and the new Niv.

Unless... You'd think Venser, the Sojourner + Teferi, Timebender is good as well. Unless you want me to put Ral Zarek back in?

Ral Zarek > Teferi, Timebender and could fit i do like his interaction with chain veil. I personally do not like Venser, the Sojourner in this deck and aminato is better at resetting planeswalkers.

Finally, one other Walker in mind is Tezzeret, Artifice Master , but I dunno about such a thing. That & Rowan Kenrith is hated by all as a part of these Superfriends/Avengers type decks. Really sucks when I'm the only one to find it to be good...

Tezzeret, Artifice Master is just a value engine which is what super friends wants i suppose make tokens->card advantage->powerful ult. so he could happily go in.

Rowan Kenrith generally is not a good card, her up ability is bad her down ability is underpowered she would just be in it for her ult. I generally do not put planewalkers into decks just for their ult ability however for rowan i will make break my rule. Doubling every single planeswalker ability on an emblem is extremely powerful IMHO she also has the ability to ult herself using doubling season


Ashiok, Dream Render i think you are right to be concerned you can probably cut this (unless your meta is tuter and gy heavy)

Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast same question as saheeli what do you use him for?

Elspeth, Knight-Errant not convinced with her particularly

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner not bad but better cards could be in her place you will not use her draw much

Also what is your play groups thoughs on Side boards? as the Karn, the Great Creator with Mycosynth Lattice in the side board is very good at winning. it a 10 mana 1 card win con really (can be payed over two turns), ie play Karn down him to find Mycosnth lattice, play the lattice and now your oponants cant tap lands for mana!

And just as an entertaining point i know someone who build a WUBR artifact deck with a lot of plains walkers in it and by using Mycosynth Lattice and Bludgeon Brawl he was equipping his gideon planswealker with other planeswalkers and using it to hit people with XD (not feasible as an actual strategy but I liked it)
