My fear is WotC will try so hard to balance battles that they will be nigh unplayable or one will be so powerful WotC will have to tame every future one they may print to the point where no other is playable.

On the flip side though, we've come a long way from Venser, the Sojourner (cough Wrenn and Six cough), so maybe Battles will get better as time goes on and WotC figures out how they want to explore it given initial play.

TypicalTimmy, it's from the Mirrodin Besieged block. Melira, Sylvok Outcast has the ability to remove Glistening Oil from the infected. As you said, if it fully corrupts the heart its incurable. Venser, the Sojourner was suffering from Phthisis(powerstone radiation poisoning) and knew he didn't have much longer to live. So he gave his spark to Karn and the spark flushed the oil from his body. That's how Karn Liberated was cured.

As for Nicol Bolas, his memory isn't erased. Jace Beleren created an illusion where he showed Nicol exploding and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon just took his name in such a way he cannot be summoned. Thus, his home is now a Prison Realm.

I use to run a Roon bounce house back when Sylvan Primordial was still legal in commander.

My engines were

Venser, the Sojourner / Deadeye Navigator / Restoration Angel / Conjurer's Closet

I would blink cards like Stonehorn Dignitary and Coiling Oracle

You're looking for strong ETB triggers like Reflector Mage and recursion like the cards mentioned above or creatures like Temur Sabertooth

This is a high synergy for value deck, and it can be a ton of fun to play.

If you want to be even more of an asshole, Archaeomancer (or similar: Shipwreck Dowser) + Venser, the Sojourner + board wipe of choice = board wipe that you can repeat every turn while ticking up a terrifying ultimate. Even if it weren't for that combo, I'd highly recommend some instant/sorcery recursion just because of how many you have.

Also, depending on how many opponents you usually play with (3, for me), I'd consider possibly replacing Inspired Sphinx with Pondering Mage. The downside is it draws less and has the same cost as your commander, so IDK if you'd want to do that. I'm not sure how important casting your commander is to your game plan.

Thank you! That is a very, very tough question given this deck's blatant disregard for budget considerations, but only a handful are over $10 in their cheapest printings. I would probably reconsider some of the cards that have been cut over this decks long history. Venser, the Sojourner, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Kiora, Master of the Depths, and Vraska the Unseen all spring to mind. I would also consider bringing back some of the old creatures like Clever Impersonator and Gilder Bairn which got cut to trim down towards the legendary theme.

I really like the design (plus the art you chose fits the name pretty well)!

I do wonder if the ultimate could be adjusted a bit, though. It seems rather weak for a 4.5 mana planeswalker that takes 4.5 turns to reach its ultimate (compare to Venser, the Sojourner or Sarkhan Unbroken or even Ajani Vengeant).

I recommend replacing Conjurer's Closet with Teleportation Circle One less mana for a slightly stronger effect.

I'd also recommend adding Skycloud Expanse as a cheap mana fixing land for Azorius.

Having a Tundra surprises me, as the rest of your mana base seems pretty basic. But if you're willing to spend a bit, I would consider adding Mystic Gate in as well.

I also really like Venser, the Sojourner for this deck as another Conjurer's Closet type effect. If you're okay with infinite combos, I'd recommend you add Peregrine Drake. When combined with Deadeye Navigator, you get infinite mana, ETBs, and LTBs.
