Probably. I don't think she is a firm believer in the 60-card rule.

There shouldn't be, I usually try to stick to 60 I was probably just being a dumb

And I don't believe in the rule but do respect that if 61 was better then people would use 61

I think the exception to the rule applies more often in draft where the 41st card has more of an impact on you land percentage then the 61st

What about Woodland Wanderer instead of Zendikar Incarnate

I feel like 5-color decks will be April's metagame.

I'm thinking 4-color Superfriends and Ramp are the strongest looking decks right now. Maybe even a combo of both.

I think Abzan splashing some wastes/colourless mana is going to be pretty strong. Access to Sorin, Unmaking, Thought-Knot (still can't believe we are getting this, but I'm not complaining), Kozilek, Oblivion Strike etc. Explosive Vegetation for the fixing/ramp.

I'd like to add red for the PWs/Sweepers but I think black's stock went up enough that I'll be happy without red and keeping a more consistent mana base.

Ok, I'm definatly looking forward to April for 5 color. But right now the decks here seem like 'win-moar' deck, but slightly better than RDW.

Out of all the cards, Kiora seems like the most Win More. The 4-drop slot is already heavy, I think one should cut her. What is her purpose...

I know the 4 slot is full. But I play Kiora more than Gideon...

Experimental deck... The idea is to draw, discard the expendables, then reanimation them. Stay alive with multiple sweepers and pray your mana is the right color.
Its gonna take me forever to unlock all this stuff, so go ahead and have fun reviving stalone, schwarzenegger and friends...

No fixing beyond Wilds or ramp to accelerate with such a high top end (4 revive spells isn't enough, you're going to need to hard cast something) and not enough to do early/mid to survive.

I don't think this is going to be anywhere near consistent. I'm working on a conflux control deck ATM and at the every least I think these types of decks need Natural Connection and a slight skew towards green to function properly, otherwise mana becomes a very real issue.

Actually the card draw also works as pseudo-mana fixing... Just a more versatile version of it, but I agree that it isn't strong on consistency and I guess I can add upto +4 reanimation spells or and Jace or skaab to recicle the existir ones. Maybe Telling time, but like I've said before... Its no impulse
Its a raw test build... Built to test what works and what is too janky to play...ever. Thanks for the feedback though.

I'm new here, although I've been a lurker for a few months and have really enjoyed the deck ideas I've seen here. I started playing Duels when the BFZ update was released; but I recently got myself enough coins to get all the cards so I could toy around with whatever deck I felt like. I made a 5-color Planeswalker deck recently that I've been enjoying offline (I feel a bit guilty trying it online, since I didn't earn all of my cards). I think it's fairly strong, but I'd like some feedback as to how it might be improved. I'd prefer not to add more creatures; but I'm open to all suggestions. Here's the list:

2x Oath of Nissa
2x Fog
2x Dazzling Reflection
2x Declaration in Stone
2x Oath of Gideon
2x Oath of Jace
2x Anguished Unmaking
2x Call the Gatewatch
2x Radiant Flames
1x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
2x Oblivion Strike
1x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
1x Nahiri, the Harbinger
2x Tamiyo's Journal
2x Planar Outburst
1x Jace, Unraveler of Secrets
1x Ob Nixilis Reignited
1x Greenwarden of Murasa
1x Chandra, Flamecaller
1x Sorin, Grim Nemesis
2x Emeria Shepherd
6x Plains
3x Forest
2x Cinder Glade
2x Woodland Cemetery
2x Rootbound Crag
2x Glacial Fortress
2x Isolated Chapel
2x Sunpetal Grove
4x Crumbling Vestige
1x Stone Quarry

Also, how do you make nice lists in your posts? I'm still not very good at using boards. Thanks for all your help.

Quote my post and look above and below your decklist. You will see word deck in brackets. You can do the same thing, but put card instead of deck in brackets to link an individual card.

Also it's good to post the deck in an orderly fashion, either by CMC or card type.

I posted this in the constructed section of the forum but nobody seemed interested... Shame because the deck has now gone 8-0 and is as yet undefeated.
Maybe I'm just not respected enough as a deckbuilder yet to get anyone's attention, but this looks pretty damn good to me.

Try it out, I'd really like some feedback.
