    summoning sickness. any creature-heavy decks will have creatures readily available to block.

    and most players who know what they are doing will block your hellspark elemental if its in your graveyard and your hand is low. especially if they are about to die and it seems to be your only way to deal lethal damage...

    actually thats not the question you were asking haha im used to answering the other question. but the answer is no, they are completely different cards and do not have the same name. hence "nicol bolas, planeswalker"

    the legend rule checks the card name.

    planeswalker rules check the planeswalker subtype, example: "planeswalker - ajani". this is why vengeant and goldmane cant both be on the board at the same time. hope that clears things up

    i have 4 wraths main. honestly my deck has a pretty good matchup against WW, i was just looking for a couple cards to push it over the edge since its so popular now. i am definitely liking the stillmoon idea... a little hard to activate any of his abilities in my deck though. are there any other good pro-white creatures besides stillmoon that dont use black?

    completely depends on your build. seems really good for naya planeswalkers vs. aggro, but i prefer plumeveil in decks low on creatures that also run blue

    hellspark does not always come back for more, i would even say that it usually does not come back for more, as it can easily be blocked on turns 3+ (theres this ugly fellow named tarmogoyf...). often times its also hard to get through for 3 when you play it from your hand and you're on the draw. i will agree with you that its pretty good in the faeries matchup, but there are much better card choices for almost every other matchup.

    4 blinkmoths is debatable... i like what they can do at the end of the game, but its also sometimes very important to play shrapnel blast for 2 mana. i run 3 blinkmoths and 3 citadels as a balance.

    again, i dont think there issues have a definite answer, a lot of it just comes down to personal card taste. this is just my 2 cents

    backlash is awesome, im just trying to find something more defensive.

    cumber stone is decent...

    is pithing needle worth boarding in? they usually have ajani as a target, but im thinking that there arnt many other important targets for the needle.

    any other thoughts?

    hey guys, im trying to fill a couple spots in the SB for my 4-color control deck (all colors except black). what are some cards that hate on white weenie? i dont think the red sweeper spells are viable considering forge-tender...

    if you're really, really set on hellspark (i dont like it at all for this deck), replace incinerate with them. the marauders are extremely awesome in so many ways, and hellspark would simply play a different role in the deck than hellspark. but hey, to each his own; i'd like to hear some results for hellspark at a PTQ

    note: by making this replacement, i guarantee that your zoo matchup will become much worse

    a single copy of mindspring won me 2 games on friday.

    i was in an essential standstill vs. a bant control deck and my topdecked mindspring resolved to draw me 10 cards. it was so awesome

    i agree with magician3.

    my deck has worked much better without rings. if you want to play rings, thats perfectly fine, but it by no means has a shoe-in spot in the deck.
