What about maining Collector Ouphe over Scavenging Ooze and Snapcaster? Also at least 1 Oko, Thief of Crowns had got to be good here too, perhaps over Regrowth or Thoughtseize

Deck looks like a pretty solid midrange shell overall, has game against shops, bazaar and blue decks

Recently, someone asked Mark Rosewater about the possibility of having a set with no planeswalker cards, and Rosewater asked the users how they felt about that. Much to my disappointment, the majority of users said that they liked planeswalkers and would not wish to see a set without them.

I started playing this game before planeswalkers were a card type, so I imagine that the users who wish to continually see planeswalkers started playing the game more recently, and, thus, have never known a time when planeswalkers were not a card type. I, myself, am fond of planeswalkers, as I think that they are an interesting card type that adds new dimensions to the game, but I frankly think that WotC is giving them far too much attention from a story and marketing perspective, and, from a gameplay perspective, they have unquestionably made a tremendous impact upon the game; in fact, I would argue that they have warped the game and forever altered its course. The earliest planeswalkers were not too powerful, but then Jace, the Mind Sculptor was printed, and he had a tremendous effect on the game. I wish that I could say that WotC has learned its lesson about making planeswalkers too powerful, but they printed Oko, Thief of Crowns recently, so I am not entirely certain about that.

Again, I wish to emphasize that I think that planeswalkers are very awesome and fascinating cards, but I feel that they are simply receiving too much attention, and that WotC should use them more sparingly, to make them seem more unique and impressive. I recall that Mark Rosewater said that, when planeswalkers were initially introduced as a card type, WotC planned to use them only on occasion, but they were so popular that WotC decided to make them a regular feature in sets, which I believe was a mistake. If WotC could have planeswalkers in sets only on occasion, I would be very pleased.

What does everyone else say about this? Would you like to see a set with no planeswalker cards?

You know, I still wonder how Oko, Thief of Crowns would play out if his second ability was a -1. With that one little change he would go from being able to elk at will to absolutely needing protection from an elk, which is also kinda fun flavor. Like, he could change you into something that's a threat to him. That's interesting. As is though, uggh, I feel like all of his numbers just don't make sense.

I'm going to be honest, I kind of forgot that Oko, Thief of Crowns exists, just because when he came out my playgroup made a big collective, pfft nope.

And I totally agree with Questing Beast and things like it being too pushed. It's the kind of multiple effects that are so ridiculous that you can sometimes forget them all when you play them, and that's when it goes too far. When you are like, oh yeah, this also has deathtouch, or something. That kinda thing happening on either side of the table makes me cringe so much : )

When Oko, Thief of Crowns was in standard it was so boring to play against it. You only had a couple of good strategies to beat it and building to beat it left you with a slower deck. I loved killing that card.

I think Questing Beast was Wizards trying to keep Green players playing the game. Green had such a narrow group of ways to win. And used to or usually outright loses to good midrange/control decks. Still, really dumb card.

  • Oko, Thief of Crowns. I hate this card soo much. If this comes down early I will not be casting many spells especially my cmdr.

  • Dockside Extortionist I hate seeing this and refuse to play it. I think the card is busted. No one playing it plays it fair.

  • Omnath, Locus of Mana, seeing this card just aggravates me so much. I think the card breaks the rules of magic and I refuse to play it.

Those or my top offenders.
