Referencing Green's Hexproof, as well as Reality Smasher, using Sphinx of New Prahv's formatting:

Kessig Porcupine

Creature - Beast

As an additional cost to cast a spell that targets Kessig Porcupine, that's spell's controller must discard a card.


I imagine this would be a solid common in limited formats. Esp. with auras and mutate.

I'd like a card with one short line of text.

I love Armageddon, Murder, and Wrath of God for their epic look. I want a card that would look great like that. Btw, I absolutely hate tjhe fact that the un-keyworded "Bury". Damnation Could look epic just like the Wrath of God before... I digress...

Woooo.... That is very busted.

I mean... a 4 mana 4/4 flyer with hexproof and upside is phenomenal, generally playable. Look at Sphinx of New Prahv for easy comparison.

Scry 4 per turn (easily 4+), is insane.

The -1 isn't as good as the rest, but synergizes well with control decks and handles a threat in a way that protects Mu Yanling and can help in a tempo build.

God-Eternal Kefnet is better than Sphinx of New Prahv and the same amount of mana cost! Lawmage's Binding is like Prison Realm but just as good; either one is acceptable depending upon what mana you want to use!

Hello Sir!

I take it you started with the Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind planeswalker deck.

Two main suggestions in general:

I would suggest to keep the deck to mono-blue if you can, as this will allow you to not get color screwed (getting too many lands of one color, but not enough of another). If you insist on going White-blue, you need to run some dual color lands (maybe a set of Glacial Fortress ).

I would also suggest you get rid of your non-flying things and stay away from 1x counts. By having more one-ofs, you are thinning the probability to get the best cards.

If you dont mind cards rotating out of standard in october, the most obvious addition to this is Favorable Winds . A mono blue version of this would make the also soon rotating Tempest Djinn really good.

Having said this, let me give you a break down on how I would upgrade your deck in its colors:

-2x Air Elemental +2x Sphinx of New Prahv Sure, the Sphinx has 1 less toughness, but it also costs 1 mana less and is harder to deal with because of its special ability.

-1x Callous Dismissal -1x Bond of Discipline +2 Winged Words Since all of your creatures are flyers, you really want to be able to draw 2 cards for only 2 mana. This is also your only draw spell and Amass doesn't really make sense here.

-2x Spectral Sailor -2x Concordia Pegasus +4x Healer's Hawk Spectral Sailor and Concordia Pegasus can be easily replaced by the hawk, which will gain you life (and time) for you to get your finisher cards

-1x Saheeli's Silverwing +1 Warden of Evos Isle Get a fourth warden. Saheeli is slower than Warden, and the Warden will speed the rest of your deck. No brainer.

-3x Island -3x Plains +4x Glacial Fortress +2 Azorius Guildgate More reliable lands!

-2x Celestial Messenger + 2x Empyrean Eagle Eagle doesn't depend on having the planeswalker for not sucking.

-2x Show of Valor -1x Glaring Aegis +3 Aerial Assault Aerial Assault has better synergy with your deck, also, trying to have as many 4x as possible.

-2x Take Vengeance +2x Dovin, Grand Arbiter You already have 6x removal in the form of Aerial Assault and Pacifism

-1x Disdainful Stroke -1x Disenchant -1x Negate -1x Quench +4 Depose / Deploy Removing many one-ofs in favor of a flexible spell.

-1x Tale's End -1x Unsummon +2 Azorius Charm More flexible, in your colors, more consistency.

musicman3310 should I swap Sphinx of New Prahv for Baird, Steward of Argive ? Ive been thinking about it but a 4/3 flyer with vigilance and a tax just sounds pretty decent in this deck. Kinjalli's Sunwing doesnt do enough for this deck I feel but it would be good in the sideboard.
