Hey Rilakai, +1 :)

@your reddit post

Here's a Kethis deck I put together that turned out to be crazy fun: Superfrens Tokens/Reanimator. I wanted to play only planeswalkers that made tokens. Because Kethis, the Hidden Hand is basically Yawgmoth's Will / Underworld Breach , I found cards like Oath of Druids that could turbo self-mill, kind of like Hermit Druid . Primevals' Glorious Rebirth and Urza's Ruinous Blast became my go-to wincons. Planewide Celebration is probably another.

I've played vs. several Atraxa decks and they're usually very similar. Often she plays as archenemy and often relies on 10+ mana combo wins (like Teferi + Chainveil). What I liked about Kethis was that I didn't care if my planeswalkers died.

Imo, go beyond "planeswalkers" as a theme and narrow your focus to #tokens, #+1/+1 counters, etc. This lets you play around weaker planeswalkers, making your deck less threatening and more versatile and unique.

Hey Walrighti, +1!

@your post

Congrats on your first deck! You have a lot of fun cards in here and it looks great! I imagine you want to tune and make it even more efficient so here are some ideas...

Add 3 categories: #Combo, #Lifegain, and #Evasion; and then sort your maybeboard the same way you've done your mainboard to easily rank your choices within a category (By "combo" I mean all your "if-then" cards like Trudge Garden that are slower and don't work by themselves). Remove #Creatures (most of them are #Combo).

Avoid most cards above 4 cmc... Willowdusk is fast and fragile, so play into that... Also, prioritize cards that can do 2 or more things or that give value on ETB... If you have pet cards that don't really fit and that hurt to cut, put them in a "I'll build that theme later" list.
