So, I spent weeks looking at Kiora, the Crashing Wave thinking "Wow, this card is bad" Yet, the price didn't reflect that. I thought "Ok, she's 2 Explore for 4 mana...seems about right" Until I realized, I should be ticking her up. She's a planeswalker that PROTECTS HERSELF! Throw her behind a counter wall, and tick her up a few times? RELEASE THE KRAKENS!!!

This is pretty cool! +1

If you weren't trying for standard, Doubling Season would be awesome for all the tokens and planeswalkers!

Cool to See a Fellow Bant Walker enthusiasts.

I too went with the whole Brimaz and Thune in the sb package, but I found myself leaving Brimaz in the sb almost %100 of the time, as he is not well positioned in the current meta, no matter how late in the match you decide to side him in.

I also see you've gone with a full U/W control shell and the splash of green for Kiora, the Crashing Wave , it's a good shell and I use very similar tech in my version of the deck

Bant_Walkers Playtest

Standard Behgz


I chose to mainboard Thune's and only 3x Jace AOT, and 2x Elspeth, leaving room for 4x Kiora, the Crashing Wave as her emblem can win a game much like Elspeth's, as well as ramp an extra land into play which lets you play an Eslpeth a turn sooner.

The idea behind Bant Walkers is to have a bunch of PW's in play, but you will need other spells, thats where the numbers for jace and Elspeth deviate from the requisite 4-of you see in other brews.

As much As I liked seeing my overall deck cost sitting around $750 like you have here, I made the conscious decision to edit the deck down to what I believe is the most streamlined version of the deck that can hold it's own in most match-ups while providing itself the resources needed to pop it's Walkers and win.

Also, Mutavault is very taxing on the land base and I would recommend cutting them from the deck, as you will be quite unhappy when you can't cast a timely Supreme Verdict because your 4th land drop was a colorless Mutavault .
