Sorin Markov Discussion

Very tasty deck. Question: why not run Sorin Markov ? Hit 'em with the old set-SPIKE!

I would heartily NOT recommend Armageddon . You can check out the thread in the Forum on MLD (mass land destruction) from this week. It is NOT generally considered polite in casual circles, and generally frowned upon overall. Social Contract and LD Discussion
As to the Planeswalker question, looking at the options, I would front the extra money and buy Sorin Markov , as he fits well here. The others don't seem like they would add a lot of value. Overall, though, I usually don't run Planeswalkers. I have a few here and there that I like in certain decks, but overall, I find they aren't really worth it to me. They just put a target on my head, and unless they significantly advance my strategy, they're not worth the slot. Now I have a deck that does some Druid tribal, and Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is awesome. I love Nissa Revane in an elf tribal deck. I like Teyo, the Shieldmage because he's a cheap option for personal hexproof, which can be very annoying. But overall, a Planeswalker is optional unless it really helps you.
Sunblast Angel and Blinding Light is a fun combo, but you need to be running multiple copies of each, and possibly some blink, to actually make it work. I had a deck that abused that, running Astral Slide , Rune of Protection: White et al, Auramancer , Momentary Blink , Cloudshift , Sunblast Angel , Subjugator Angel , Blinding Light , and Resolute Archangel . Yes, I am awful. It eventually became Hoofprints through the Galaxy, but that didn't last long, as all my friends hated playing against it. Basically, I just stopped them from attacking me by preventing damage from their sources until I could start dropping my big angels and swing for the kill. Still trying to come up with a deck for Hoofprints of the Stag that doesn't piss everyone off. Also, Sunblast Angel won't work if you're running Hushwing Gryff , FYI.

libraryjoy i got a lot of the suggestions that you made and I am already enjoying the new deck! I was wondering if you could also take a look at my sideboard. These are other cards that I own. Some of them are a little extreme, like Armageddon for a mana - ramp deck, but should I put any of these in my main deck? Or leave them in my sideboard depending on the opponent? Another card I am considering is Sunblast Angel . Its ability to destroy all tapped creatures could be used with Blinding Light , but I feel like that would not happen enough to make it worth it.
What are your thoughts on Planeswalkers? Some that I am considering that are on the more affordable side but still good cards are Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Liliana, Waker of the Dead , Ajani Goldmane , and Ajani, Caller of the Pride . I would consider getting two of these because they are only about $4 each. Or should would it be worth it to buy only one PlanesWalker and get Sorin Markov ?
Again, I really appreciate all the help! MTG is a lot more fun when your deck works well!

MalGaming: no problem, I hope they help. I do want to point out that Mastermind's Acquisition is more than a 4cmc tutor. It let's you pull cards from your sideboard. I combo that with Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed (and my general chainer) to grab any card I need out of my sideboard to use for whatever situation. It has saved my bum on several occasions, I also don't like running combos unless each combo piece is useful on its own (my original chainer list ran Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth + Exsanguinate but I felt Basalt was often a dead draw and eventually dropped it, I traded rings in for Lithoform Engine after that sense I wasn't as concerned with combos and making an extra Lich or copying a tutor seemed helpful). So I also use acquisition to grab Walking Ballista or Sorin Markov for some cheese that I would normally not run in the main if the situation called for it. There are tons of cards I would love to fit in my commander list and acquisition allows me to sort of run those cards. I also use it in my Atraxa list to grab cards like Ashiok, Dream Render and other more situationally useful cards.

May I suggest Sorin Markov? Putting someone's life total to ten is absolutely bonkers.
