Heyo. My name is Luke. Played Magic for a bit - first set was Fifth Edition. Currently, my favorite formats are EDH and Limited.

Also, hey! Check out my Primer for political Gahiji, Honored One! Or my pimped-out Karlov deck! They're my pride and joy.

Marvell - I don't know if you've noticed, but I actually ditched Draught in the last update. It only really got good results about 1/5 casts that I drew it, so that's just not reliable enough. In its place I added Goblin Diplomats, as I recently joined a new playgroup with a heavy blue combo/control meta; people often refuse to attack - so I needed at least one more reliable source for forcing them.

Rector's totally not necessary. It gets me Mystic Barrier, Mirari's Wake, or Curse of Bloodletting depending on what I need at the time, but it's easily cut-able (especially since it's valuable).

Honestly, because Rector's effect is so unique you can really cut him in favor of anything - more forced attacks (Master Warcraft and the like), more ramp (Nature's Lore or a signet or something), more removal (Swords/Path, Song of the Dryads, etc), or even something spicy like Beastmaster Ascension. You're not going to get Rector's effect anywhere else so really anything goes.

If I had to cut Rector myself I'd add Mentor of the Meek back in, probably.

Coward_Token - Always glad to have another interesting spoiler season.

Huatli, Radiant Champion is very interesting. I'd like her more if she gave trample or some kind of evasion on her minus ability, but her emblem triggering on tokens as well as non-tokens is pretty excellent. I'd be curious to hear if anyone has any good results with her; I imagine I won't have a copy for a while.

I wouldn't fault anyone for running The Immortal Sun, particularly in a Planeswalker-heavy meta. I like Wake because it gets fetched by Academy Rector when there are no better targets; if I ever ran Sun over Wake, I'd probably replace Rector with Orzhov Advokist or something fun like that.

Warmonger Hellkite is weird - everyone I've talked to (on the site or in real life) hates it for reasons like you've said. However, I've gotten so much mileage out of it, and it's just so chaotic. Even if I don't get to untap with it, it at least means 1-3 opponents aren't going to be doing much blocking. You don't always want to play him on curve, but he works for me. So yeah, maybe a pet card, but I really love him.

I'm having the same issue as cgomes - alters no longer seem to be linking correctly. They disappear from decklists even without updating from my experience.

CCing yeaGO as well - thanks in advance!
