Updates

So I made top 4 today and was able to split, despite not actually winning a single round. Oddly, I've had this before where the Wizards Event Reporter decides arbitrarily I should get some packs.

Round One: Affinity-- 1-2
Round Two: Naya Tron-- 1-1-1
Round Three: Bye

Was just having a look at your list from the Superfriends budget thread. I never thought of using Genesis Wave in Superfriends, but that is actually an awesome idea! I want to make a Superfriends deck, and currently have a Genesis Wave deck that I barely play any more, so that gives me a great base.

+1 for the excellent idea and good shell you have. But how do you find it with only 9 Walkers? I feel like 12-15 would be better.

@Denial048: I finally got to play the deck today!

I used 10 today, but I'm thinking I just need better quality planeswalkers. Nahiri, the Harbinger, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Nissa, Worldwaker, and Liliana, the Last Hope seem to be on my list of cards to get, in addition to more Genesis Waves. I don't think I'd go above 10 because of how much the deck benefits from Thragtusk, Kitchen Finks, and/or Harmonize, which I'd include more copies of.

I also need something to beat control and Tron. My sideboard really wasn't the best for either. Combo and aggro seem to be fine.

I suppose a higher Planeswalker count would only really matter if you also ran Deploy the Gatewatch, as a way to guarantee hitting multiples.

Finding the right walkers will be key here. Ugin can shut down lots of decks, as can Liliana of the Veil. Token generators are also fairly important too.

Good to see the deck performs alright, will be interesting to see what you get in the long run.

Hey there, I have a Modern Superfriends deck too that's similar to yours, and was wondering if you could take a look and give some suggestions?

@K00lDudE1: Posted a comment on your deck. Hope it was useful! Let me know if there's things you notice to help improve either of our decks.

Thanks a lot for the comment, it's very useful, I plan to play around with the deck a bit and see what I can come up with, and I'll make sure to let you know of any new ideas I have for the decks!

A Chromatic Lantern or two to help ensure you get the fixing you need?

@Lame_Duck: This deck doesn't actually run into color problems very often, if ever. Basically, if you just name Utopia Sprawl for whatever color you have in your hand (white being the main one, for cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion). Fertile Ground and Oath of Nissa cover the other costs.

The only hard planeswalkers to cast are ones with 2 non-green colors in their costs. Sorin, Grim Nemesis and Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker being the main two.

Fair enough; it's definitely the kind of deck that's difficult to just look at the list and be able to see how well the fixing works. It's a very interesting and unique design though, I like it.

@Lame_Duck: Yeah I think once I get Liliana, the Last Hope, Horizon Canopy, and Nahiri, the Harbinger in here, I'll have to consider Chromatic Lantern or Prismatic Omen. It would also allow me to play something like Blood Moon for even more obnoxiousness.

I'm really considering Prismatic Omen for the same reasons you recommended Chromatic Lantern, in addition to being able to board in a Scapeshift package out of the sideboard as an alternate win condition.

so.... You either find oath of nissa or you don't cast spells?????

@Snapdisastermage: Fertile Ground and Utopia Sprawl help cast everything, too.

Between Oath of Nissa, Fertile Ground and Utopia Sprawl, at 4 copies each, in a 60 card deck, you have about an 80% chance of having one in your opening hand, increasing to 85.25 if on the draw. Not bad odds by any means. That said, it might be worthwhile looking at adding a mana dork like Birds of Paradise or Sylvan Caryatid for extra mana fixing. Personally, I would take either of those over Sakura-Tribe Elder

Have you considered The Chain Veil at all?

Now that the planeswalkers rules are changing with the next set would you take out some of them and add in copies of some of the others. And either way what would be the main win conditions for this deck

@SwooceAlmighty: card is too win-more and I need the slots. I'd rather have another Harmonize or another 4-drop planeswalker.

@volcanicdoom: Ajani Vengeant is coming in. He only wasn't in here to begin with because of how good Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is for this deck. I'm probably going to add Garruk, Apex Predator and Garruk Relentless if I can find the room. After that, I'm not sure if I'll have any more room to fit anything else.

As far as win conditions: the planeswalkers themselves! Most of the wins come from making a bunch of tokens and setting off a few ultimates. Because this deck can dump out a turn 3 Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker off of Nissa, Worldwaker and Garruk Wildspeaker, you get so far ahead early on your opponent can't deal with the amount of value being generated.
