Even if he is not activating The Chain Veil infinitely two additional activations in a turn is enough to create some amazing mischievousness depending on what planeswalkers are on the board. Easily the most popular choice for a Planeswalker-based Commander, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice possesses a great deal of flexibility that lends it to being a strong option for numerous strategies including "Super Friends.". This enchantment allows players to accrue massive amounts of value as they string together numerous spells in a single turn, proliferating their Planeswalkers and quickly activating their respective ultimate abilities. Using Karn’s Ultimate Loyalty ability is a very corner case. Infect in my opinion is a cool mechanic. I dont want it to be superfriends, but I want them to deffinitely have a solid state in the deck. While there is better creature destruction for his minus two loyalty ability, his +1 ability is pure card advantage. Planeswalkers are noncreature and nonland cards and your deck should be filled full of them. This is the beautiful version reprinted in double masters. It is removal and if your opponents somehow allow you to use her ultimate loyalty ability you will have the mana for the rest of the game and be able to cast spells at will. For example, in black, I absolutely love Liliana of the Dark Realms. If you don’t immediately have to draw cards than a 3/3 token will help protect your planeswalkers. For the cost of four mana, The Chain Veil can be tapped, allowing its controller to activate each Planeswalker they controls abilities an additional time that turn.

I'd like to hear some picks. Not only are you drawing extra cards, but you are forcing each opponent to discard a card. These cases do happen but more often than not when this ability is available to you you already have the game in hand. Atraxa is a 4/4 Flier, give her infect and 2 giant growths and that’s game. Gross. Or simply pop infect onto her at the last second. Doubling the amount of counters of any type put on permanents under its owner's control, pairing Doubling Season with numerous Planeswalkers can have explosive results. Or at least, that's what happened to our playgroup. Several planeswalkers are possibly stronger than some on this list. One of the most pivotal mechanics for players to capitalize upon in "Super Friends" decks is the Proliferate mechanic. I'm not going to break down my reasons for the planeswalkers that I chose. Like the previously mentioned Inexorable Tide, Evolution Sage is a card that allows its controller to repeatedly proliferate. Tamiyo (who shouldnt be Bant) deserves a slot as does [[Narset, Transcendant]]. So in a weird way life may actually be more vulnerable as a resource as cEDH and at battlecruiser and lower levels. Whether you are or not, I like Planeswalkers that can defend themselves. Planeswalkers are noncreature and nonland cards and your deck should be filled full of them. This ability is secretly powerful. Working from our end game, we simply want to put out small creatures that either have infect or are difficult to block. This is a tradeoff for exiling multiple permanents. The first 5 are included because they are immediately ultable with [[Doubling Season]] (just looked up the price -- when the hell did this get so expensive?!) Nissa Worldwaker is one of the few planeswalkers that does not have a negative loyalty ability. Nissa’s ultimate loyalty ability actually gets weaker as your commander deck increases in color identity. By using our Services or clicking I agree, you agree to our use of cookies. It will also allow you to activate them on each opponent’s turn. You might respond to this by stuffing your deck full of wraths and counterspells, but your playgroup will respond in kind by making their decks faster, more aggressive, or more combo centric. Narset, Transcendant - (G) (MC) (MW) (CD) (ER)Ajani Steadfast - (G) (MC) (MW) (CD) (ER)[[cardname]] or [[cardname|SET]] to call, Lol thanks. That wraps up our look at Atraxa and hopefully you’ve got a good idea of how you can build a playable deck around her. Failed to subscribe, please contact admin. This is another planeswalker that gains value because it is in green and therefore most superfriends decks can use her. As of now, I have [[Kiora, the Crashing Wave]], [[Sorin Markov]], [[Elspeth, Sun's Champion]], [[Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury]], and [[Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath]] and I'm trying to convince my friend to trade me her [[Sorin, Solemn Visitor]]. If your friend is board wipe happy, card draw becomes even more important to bouncing back. When this happens, it is an advantage as it takes the pressure off of your other planeswalkers. Her Proliferate ability lets you ramp up to combo while maintaining some control meanwhile. The counters can be Proliferated to help keep me on my colors.

As a green planeswalker Nissa Who Shakes the World should see lots of play. I forgot to say old uggy is in there. While The Chain Veil comes with the drawback of dealing two damage to its controller of their end step if they hadn't activated a loyalty ability of a Planeswalker that turn, this drawback is nearly aways a non-factor in Planeswalker-heavy "Super Friends" decks. We’ll protect our creatures with a few spells but we’ll primarily rely on the nature of the game being not very interactive.
