Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage Discussion

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)
Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.
Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.
Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.
Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.
Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS
Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.
Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.
Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.
Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.
Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.
Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.
Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.
Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad
Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

I like your ways :D Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is something I was looming to build for some time now, but Brago took my Azorius slot for my commanders for now.

I really like instant speed disruption strategies. I haven't seen this kind of deck before personally. I really like the win condition.
Other good decks for instant speed mass disruption strategies that may interest you are Sidisi, Undead Vizier (you can search for Shimmer Myr and play something like a Nevinyrral's Disk followed by Voltaic Key), or play Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage and do similar things. K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth can also play lots of cards like Tragic Slip and Necropotence. Basically, any commander that has Flash-giving abilities, tutoring, and or mass mana giving and/or drawing capabilities can be built like this in the right conditions.

Aron Capashen, Lord of Benalia
Legendary Creature - Human Artificer Noble
Whenever this Aron Capashen, Lord of Benalia becomes the target of a spell or ability for the first time in a turn, counter that spell or ability
Whenever you tap an artifact for mana, add one mana of any type that land produced.
He makes the stones sing and men silent.
I'd like another character without their own card from this list: Secondary Characters

Hey just stopping by, it does look pretty similar to my list. I am constantly switching things in and out of my list so its never really the same twice. Anyway heres a few things that Ive found. First, your maybe board has some great cards. Ive been liking Kethis, the Hidden Hand it really eases the burden of the high CMC cards, plus 3 colors. Glissa is great early game, 2 colors and awesome blocker, and you can tutor it out in response to a wrath to get back equipments if they get blown up. Dalakos looks very solid I would probably slot that in over the prophetic flame speaker. The impulse effect is usually best with a low CMC deck which this one is not so you don't lose your big pieces. Ive really been liking Pariah's Shield. Once hammer is in, you can tutor for Godo to flash it in response to a big hit, so did a similar trick with an aetherflux reservoir trigger targeting me the other night. A few other things I like Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage is a new one for me thats been playing really well and Glen Elendra Archmage (strangely not legendary) has been great to stop cyclonic rift and things that make your life terrible. Faeburrow elder is another one that I'm trying to test out. I know their pricey, but try to get an embercleave the trample double strike is just so unbelievably good. My version of the deck is pretty casual, it doesn't play fast at all and I've been happy keeping it there, but you can explore the untap tricks like Bear Umbra and Nature's Will for a little additional power. But yeah overall I think you're in pretty good shape, just keep a close eye on mana curve whenever making changes. Yours is currently better shape than mine, but things get clunky fast. Also I think I'm going to check out Thran Temporal Gateway at some point.

Yup, okay so I'm digging this concept.
So I think the first order of business is exploring the different paths Palladia would take upon being reawakened.
Option 1: Helping Bolas Escape
The Steps: First, she'd have to learn what a planeswalker is, as far as I can tell from the lore, she has not met on nor does she know of their existence (She's been asleep for long time). So she would probably have to meet some more knowledgeable people, perhaps the crew of the Weatherlight battled her? Perhaps she does defeat them and learn the secret from an impressionable you Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, maybe she keeps the weatherlight. After knowing what a planeswalker is, she'd need to learn of Bolas' imprisonment. ATM only three beings know of this, Jace Beleren, Ugin, and Bolas himself. IDK how she'd learn of this but we can get into that detail after she's a planeswalker. Now, she needs to become a planeswalker. In her day, all you had to do to become a planeswalker was gather a ton of mana. Assuming this is post-mending she'd have to be born with a spark, or a spark would have to be given, or perhaps taken. What if a young planeswalker like Teyo, the Shieldmage stumbled upon her path? She could take his spark with the help of her followers, and ascend to be a planeswalker. Additionally, she could use a Planar Portal to traverse the planes. Or maybe she met Tezzeret, who has the planar bridge inside him and struck a deal to travel to another plane, but this is unlikely because Tezzeret has sworn not to serve another dragon. Okay, so Palladia can traverse planes, what next? Now she has to search for info on Bolas and Ugin. This could take centuries, not only are their histories as old as Dominaria but they've both been to so many planes. A possible encounter is with Azor, the Lawbringer on Ixalan where she learns of their plans to trap bolas. She could travel to Ravnica, though this would be hard due to everyone being on watch for planeswalkers. But if she did, she would learn about the war and stuff, and that Bolas might be dead or is thought dead. Now, in order to find where Bolas is, she'd need to find Jace, Idk how she would, he's sort of on and off with Vraska on ravnica as of late and he's a tough cookie to crack, maybe she could hire another mind reader? Either way, she gets the info and now has to find the meditation realm. As of recently, Ugin, Sarkhan, Niv Mizzet, Ashiok, Narset, and Tetsuko Umezawa know of the meditation realm. Of these Sarkhan would provide the best guide, as she could control him again (this seems to be a recurring theme with him). So she finds the realm and stuff but look out now she has to fight Ugin. But wait, what if she fixed The Immortal Sun? Boom Ugin can't escape and now she's fighting him. The point is Ugin needs to lose, but I don't know how Palladia could do that as Ugin is way more experienced than her. Maybe she attains mastery of the meditation realm? There is also, what I think would be the most epic thing ever, where she kills Sarkhan and gives Bolas Sarkhans spark. Bolas kills Ugin and is free. Maybe he kills Palladia right there and then, maybe she somehow kills him? Maybe he becomes her underling, lots of possibilities. So that's that whole destiny right there.
Option 2: Taking over
Palladia wakes up and decides to finally conquer Dominaria. The fractured remnants of the cabal rally behind her. She has a few obstacles though. Shiv won't go down without a fight, especially with Darigaaz defending it, neither will Benalia or Tolaria and then there's the whole Weatherlight crew to deal with. Maybe include Shanna, Sisay's Legacy, Squee, the Immortal, Tiana, Ship's Caretaker. Overall, it's a very difficult crusade, include key enemies such as Lyra Dawnbringer and Radha, Heir to Keld. Finally, after a decade-long war, Palladia rules all of Dominaria.
Option 3: Palladia Mors, Ruiner of Planes
Somehow (literally any of the ways I listed in 1) Palladia finds a way to move plane to plane, she takes it upon herself to sow chaos and bloodshed throughout, collecting trinkets of victory as she goes, maybe she takes the Seal of the Guildpact from Ravnica and Obelisk of Alara from Alara. Ooooo maybe Shadowspear if she defeats Elspeth wherever she goes.
That's just a few of the options for her that I could come up with, I personally think #1 could make a good fan fic
Hope you like feedback, this deck looks sweet.
