The one with the most planeswalkers wins.

The basis of this deck is to get Gilder Bairn out along with as many of your walkers as possible and start doubling their loyalty.

Normally Planeswalkers draw a lot of hate and are immediately burned or removed, but you can start off the game with Xenagos, the Reveler, and Kiora, the Crashing Wave with little issue as they are both largely unthreatening. Even better, if your opponent does waste spells to get rid of them it means there are fewer left to remove your more valuable walkers like Ral Zarek and Garruk, Primal Hunter.

Now, since Gilder Bairn has decent toughness attacking with him is not the worst place to tap him, but cards like Cryptolith Rite which can tap him safely. This is doubly useful as it also allows you to use that mana towards his ability.

Finally, Doubling Season works wonders with almost every planeswalker as well as Gilder Bairn and may be the most threatening card in this deck.

Planeswalkers:

Ral Zarek- This is the most important 'walker in the deck. Since he comes in at 4 loyalty, doubling his loyalty lets you ultimate him the same turn that you play him.

Nissa, Worldwaker- Both of her (+) abilities make doing things easy, but her ultimate is the reason to play her.

Garruk, Primal Hunter.- Both of his (+) abilities are excellent, but if you combine his ultimate with Nissa, Worldwaker's your opponents will be hard pressed to win.

Kiora, the Crashing Wave- Both Kiora walkers are pretty good--but Kiora, the Crashing Wave is a better early drop and can make a short-term ally out of an opponent by "protecting" their creature (while you have one fewer potential attacker to worry about). Both versions have very scary emblems when you make it to ultimate.

Xenagos, the Reveler- A constant stream of 2/2 satyrs with haste is excellent for early defenses as as getting in a bit of early damage, but with his +1 adding mana you can very easily cast the remained of your 'walkers. I highly recommend casting him first.

Nahiri, The Harbringer- She is just excellent at everything.
