Hi, I'm a Legacy and Modern enthusiast.

I was introduced by a friend to this game around RTR, but I rarely played until around DOM. Since then I've become much more invested into the game and am the player you see now.

My very first decks (built with the help of friends) were fliers, mill, and later illusion tribal.

I'm a miracles player. It's my primary and favorite deck, and you'll likely occasionally find me at locals with it.

I'm part of a playgroup dedicated to Modern. I spend the majority of my playing time here.

I'm a spirits player at heart, but have a lot of fun with Death and Taxes as well.

The only definitive "rule" I can see for planeswalker number calculations is that virtually every one of them is able to get themselves to 4+ loyalty (i.e. out of Lightning Bolt range) with an immediate loyalty activation. (This gets particularly egregious with low CMC walkers, cough Wrenn and Six .)

Other than that, "it depends". e.g. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can use all of his abilities immediately, but obviously that's proportional to his casting cost and the fact that his ultimate isn't exactly an "I win" ability.

It may be worth noting that in recent times, Wizards has obviously been pushing to make competitively viable, low-CMC walkers more of a thing. As recently as ELD, Oko, Thief of Crowns and The Royal Scions can get themselves to 6 (!) loyalty with their first loyalty activation, for being 3cmc walkers. Back in DTK, Narset Transcendent raised a few eyebrows for being able to get herself to 7, and she was a 4cmc walker.

So who knows.
