    Planeswalker Control

    Post  Chris on Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:20 am

    Not saying this list is worth playing, but it has popped up quite a bit online lately. Jace really is awesome, even in extended, but its lack of win conditions means that when a creature finally sticks it can take over the game pretty quickly.

    Maindeck:

    Artifacts
    4 Chrome Mox
    2 Dimir Signet
    2 Rakdos Signet

    Enchantments
    4 Blood Moon

    Instants
    3 Repeal
    4 Terminate
    4 Thirst For Knowledge
    3 Wrecking Ball


    Legendary Enchantments
    3 Night Of Souls' Betrayal

    Planeswalkers
    4 Jace, The Mind Sculptor
    1 Liliana Vess
    1 Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

    Sorceries
    1 Compulsive Research
    4 Damnation

    Basic Lands
    5 Island
    1 Mountain
    6 Swamp

    Lands
    1 Blood Crypt
    4 Scalding Tarn
    1 Steam Vents
    1 Verdant Catacombs
    1 Watery Grave
    Sideboard:

    4 Leyline Of The Void
    4 Negate
    3 Deathmark
    4 Thoughtseize

    The article on it is worth reading

    http://www.starcitygames.com/magic/extended/18923_Flow_of_Ideas_Nicol_Bolas_in_Extended_Introducing_Ultimecia.html

    He advocates cutting Liliana Vess for another Compulsive Research, and that doesn't seem too bad to me. Tutoring up things with a 1-of slow card seems sketchy.

    I don't think that's a terrible change, but online versions are running Sorin Markov over Lilliana and that lifegain swing/ removal can be huge. I think that might be a better replacement.
