Yomiji, Who Bars the Way Discussion

ClockworkSwordfish on Atraxa Superfriends

Looks good, and a lot of fun, too! I designed a similar deck and have some suggestions that might interest you.

Firstly, I think any EDH deck that's three or more colours ought to run City of Brass and Mana Confluence! They're basically Command Towers two and three. You definitely don't want to get colour screwed in a planeswalker-heavy deck.

Savor the Moment is great in these kinds of decks, since it's three mana to use all of your planeswalker abilities again. Speaking of which, Rings of Brighthearth lets you double planeswalker abilities for apiece, though the card is somewhat pricey. You might like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Thrummingbird and/or Inexorable Tide for the extra proliferation (and removal!)

Maybe consider making room for something like Wrath of God, Supreme Verdict or Hallowed Burial, since all of your board wipes other than Toxic Deluge are six mana or more. You can try Humility or Peacekeeper to keep creatures in check for the long-term, though the former can sabotage your own plans sometimes and the latter is very easy to kill. And if you don't mind being mean, Armageddon is pretty great if you can secure the board with a planeswalker or two!

And don't forget that as of recently, Planeswalkers all count as Legendary permanents! It doesn't make much difference, but now you can tutor them up with Captain Sisay and Thalia's Lancers, recur them with Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, and even tap them for mana with Honor-Worn Shaku. Pretty neat, no?

cncfan: yeah when they announced the change the first thing I did was grab the Captain Sisay from my bulk rares box and throw her in haha.

PhotogenicParasympathetic: I'm def gonna play Reki, the History of Kamigawa soon as I find the one I have but I dunno about the others. Yomiji, Who Bars the Way just costs too much and the others don't really seem to do enough for me personally.

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way + Gideon, Ally of Zendikar = +1/+1 permanently to all your creatures for each multiple of 2WW you have

I was just looking to see what things could be done when walkers become legendary. For the uninformed once ixalan drops planeswalkers will retroactively become legendary and the walker uniqueness rule will go away.

The cards this effects that I could find are Mirror Gallery, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way , Captain Sisay, Empress Galina, Honor-Worn Shaku, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Thalia's Lancers, and Untaidake, the Cloud Keeper

This will be a major power boost I think to decks with those legends. The honor worn shaku is cool, free mana since I have never seen a use in tapping walkers before without getting really weird.

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way + Gideon of the Trials + something else or multiple something else... I'm sure there is potential here.

Anyone else got some gears turning because of this change?

So probably the most important change in this set:

Jace, Cunning Castaway

Planeswalkers are now legendary permanents, meaning they're subject to all the same rules as other legendary permanents. From WotC Mothership:

Starting with this set, all planeswalkers past, present, and future will have the supertype legendary. They will also be subject to the "legend rule." The "planeswalker uniqueness rule" is going away. What does this mean? In short, everything that's true about legendary permanents will now be true about legendary planeswalkers. Also note that this does not mean legendary planeswalkers can be your Commander unless an ability says so.

Under the new rules, if a player controls more than one legendary planeswalker with the same name, that player chooses one and puts the other into their owner's graveyard. This means that if you control Jace, Unraveler of Secrets and cast Jace, Cunning Castaway, both Jaces can exist under your control.

Personally, I'm not really a fan. The main impact will be in Standard. WotC was smart enough to wait for all the Gideons to be cycled out, which is good.

I liked the limitation before where you had to consider which version of planeswalkers you wanted during deck construction. With this change, you can now jam multiple of the same planeswalker type with zero repercussions. I'm not exactly excited to sit across the table from Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip just to get shit on even more.

Or worse, Nissas ramping into more Nissas.

Yeah, I'm not really all that excited.

The following are also impacted by this change:

I doubt you'll be able to speculate on any of them now that the change is official, but pick them up for cheap if you can.

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way lijtk me niet zo goed, ze mana cost is echt enorm en daarnaast geld zijn ability voor iedereen. En omdat iedereen met een legendary creature speelt lijkt dat me niet ideaal.

Mana ramp is denk ik ook niet ideaal, als ik maar naar 4 mana kom kan ik altijd met sisay land opzoeken (of Karametra, God of Harvests).

Nylea, God of the Hunt is wel goed, maar in dit deck heb je denk ik niet vaak devotion omdat ik veel meer wit speel als groen.

Time of Need = een sisay tap, lijkt me niet nodig, Kitsune Healer vind ik niet super omdat ik hem niet kan opzoeken, ik heb Oriss, Samite Guardian toegevoegd, Day of Destiny doet niet zo veel vind ik zelf.

Wat dacht je van: Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Heroes' Podium, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, Time of Need, Kitsune Healer, Day of Destiny of Harmonize? Ze zorgen ervoor dat je gewoon kaarten kan pakken en je legendary's sterker worden.

De gebruikelijk ramp zouden ook wel handig zijn aangezien je wat dure spels hebt: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach & Rampant Growth.

Zelf ben ik ook gek op Krosan Verge met Myriad Landscape en als laats zou ik nog ff kijken naar de nieuwe monumenten Rhonas's Monument & Oketra's Monument
