TristanTaylorsVoice Ral, Izzet Viceroy is definitely slower, it is just for grindier match ups. He can kill a lot of eldrazi that are running around with his minus which is nice right now. I might want to cut down on a [Magmatic Sinkhole] to add another The Royal Scions to help loot through my deck but Ral is actually very helpful.

match_lighter I haven't tried Entrancing Melody in a while so I will try it out here soon but I like Ral in the main or the side.

The Royal Scions seems like a great way to ensure Awoken Horror is a 2hko or turning Snapcaster Mage into an actual clock, while Ral, Izzet Viceroy seems too slow. I would either play a second The Royal Scions instead or an additional threat to close games such as a single Torrential Gearhulk . Note that The Royal Scions ultimate also actually attempts to close the game!

I like it, consider adding The Royal Scions , and cut Realm-Cloaked Giant . as it while it wipes most of board, having the 7/7 really isn't that relevant, as it'll just eat a Doom Blade . If you really wanted a wipe, I would add Wrath of God and be done with it.

In a misguided attempt to be pro-active during the tournament,and advance my own game plan I am throwing in a wild card I feel will do well to enhance against the tournament's meta. We shall see how wrong I am.

Boza on Oko is problematic

1 month ago

It is not Oko that is problematic, but planeswalkers themselves. They have two states of power level and nothing in between: problematic and lacking any impact.

Oko came out in a set with another 3 mana, 2 color, high starting loyalty planeswalker that only pluses into an ultimate ( The Royal Scions ). No decks feature the twins. 70% of decks currently feature Oko. Neither is the third planeswalker in this set (garruk) featured in a top standard deck.

Out of 37 planeswalkers in WAR, exactly 2 are played with any regularity in standard - Narset and Teferi. Most others are not worth their salt.

If the cream of the planeswalker crop is infuriating to play against and the rest are not worth the cardboard they are printed on, how is this a good card type?

Also, why is The Royal Scions and Improbable Alliance in there? Is it just to get a farie from Edgewall Innkeeper ?

Thanks Sorin_Markov_1947 Yeah, I was trying to pull the gold spells so Lotus Field doesn't disrupt the flow, but I think you're right that The Royal Scions and Ionize are just too good or this deck to leave out. It's tempting to try to please the Algorithm that greades these decks, but in this case I think it's led me astray.

What do you think of Chemister's Insight ? Is it too expensive? Putting back in the Scions may make this expendable.
