Quote from pdpgtiYeah Ajani and the original Elspeth really made the deck what it was. Without them, it's not nearly as good. T2 Chalice into T3 Ajani gave your opponent a 4 turn clock. Combine that with playing an Elspeth next turn, and they get killed by whichever walker they don't attack.
Though Jace and Gideon are both good, they don't demand as much of a "have to get rid of it" clock as Ajani and Elspeth did. Both ajani and elspeth could protect themselves, since ajani's +1 tapped, and elspeth's made blockers. Gideon doesn't have an ultimate, so protecting himself doesn't really lead to anything, and Jace can't protect itself without removing counters. They just wouldn't work well in a solely planeswalker deck.
Quote from SCloneThat's true. Then again, if that were the board position, how much could you spend attacking a planeswalker?
A token, a Scion and a Mistbind is 8 power on the board. If you can kill 2 planeswalkers with that (and not the player), I'm pretty sure you should kill the planeswalkers.
The whole situation still sounds fishy to me.
Quote from SCloneSmells like troll. A Lightning Helix every turn is not something you can race with Faerie Tokens.
Quote from pokerbob1and they said there would be no cards to remove poison.
Quote from pandafarmerMost people run 60 card decks. By adding an extra land, you are simply adding an extra card.
I know perfectly well that people are going to play what they are going to play casually, but I think 99% of the tournament players out there follow the strict 60 card minimum with 24-27 lands.
