The Wanderer is another way to prevent damage from Madcap Experiment.

I'm not sure if "Storm Crow" is lingo that y'all kids use, but I'm going to assume that you're referencing Crow Storm, but not an un-card. And I feel like doing it in the likeness of The Wanderer...

Non-human creature spells with flying you cast cost less to cast, and can't be countered

-2 Create a 1/2 blue Bird creature token with flying named "Storm Crow" for each spell cast this turn


Probably broken, I don't know, but at least there's a decently strict condition to the static ability. Maybe the one loyalty ability should only count flying, nonhuman creature spells? Does that make it too weak?

Make a card with a storm-like effect that is really good but not broken.

How about Aurelia's Fury or The Wanderer to protect you from noncreature spells? Or something similar. Otherwise, I like the deck!

The 3 I would remove myself are:

The 3 I would add would be:

Circle of Despair would be great as well but the only thing I could think of removing for it is one of your proliferate cards. That’s up to you on that one. The Wanderer is more of a meta dependent card. If your playgroup uses a lot of direct damage then I would add it. Dawnstrider is the weakest link of all of them so if you feel the need to add it you’ll have to figure out that one. Other than that I would definitely add the 3 and if possible the circle as well. They truly are game winners, at least they really work for my walker deck. I used to run Atraxa as well but I switched to Sisay, Weatherlight Captain once that set was released.

Here’s a few other cards that are great for protecting your walkers:

The art in The Wanderer depicts a character who looks to have boobs, and where a skirt, also the art looks more feminine than masculine or gender neutral, so I'm pretty comfortable with saying She's a woman/female.

+1: Until the endstep of your next turn, prevent all noncombat damage that would be dealt to you and no spells or abilities your opponents control can make you lose life.

0: Any target gains protection from any color or colorless until the end of your next combat phase.

-2: Exile target permanent. If it's a land, its owner searches their library for a basic land, reveals it, shuffles their library, and puts it onto of their library. If it's a nonland permanent, its owner gains life equal to the its converted mana cost.


I think she'd find a home in modern or pioneer. An excellent control planeswalker. I mean, Generous Gift, Assassin's Trophy, Swords to Plowshares, etc. are excellent, and even sorcery speed and 3 mana, that's a powerful ability. Her +1 is entirely defensive, the 0 is either offensive or defensive, but next both, and her -2 is both.

No ultimate, as I wanted her power to be as a presence, not winning herself.

Btw, I have a Rakdos burn deck in modern, which uses Alms of the Vein, and Bump in the Night to get around prevent damage (Sideboard Skullcracks is case of real issue), and I wanted this walker to save you from even that and my favorite mechanic, extort & the commander of my favorite deck Kambal, Consul of Allocation.

I'd like to see a card which counters you favorite playstyle (mine are Stax and Burn), mechanic, or some other thing you love doing.
