I would love if we could try to explain various decks in terms of what it would look like in a duel between planeswalkers. For example>I am NOT a planeswalker>I am a dragon>Once a turn, an Enchantment comes into play under my control
>>39340525>>As soon as we begin to battle, he starts muttering in some eldritch tongue>>Energy swirls around him>>He continues, getting louder and louder>>Sheer eldritch power wafting off him>>Suddenly, he stops chanting, and uncountable lashes of dark energy flay my very soul.
Not very good at that but I imagine my Goblin deck would be>Guy in strange hat gets one goblin out.>More Goblins appear out of nowhere>OH GOD WHERE ARE THEY ALL COMING FROM!>oh thank god for fog, that would have been awful... wait, is he picking up goblins?>tfw killed by thrown goblins
>Enemy lobotomizes himself>Zombies, horror and illusions poof out of his head>Suddenly flaming guy and a bunch of zombies beat me up>THIS WAS AN UNFAIR LOSS!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOW! NOTHING I COULD DO!!!!
>>39340851I like this.>>39340864I'm guessing dredge. I'm also guessing you don't care for the mechanic.>In large highlander game with several other planeswalkers>Mostly tribal stuff, no big deal>This blue mage plays a weird autist in a silly hat>Gives him some mana stones and whatnot>Holy shit the autist can artifice>Wait, is he an artifact too?>INFINITE MANA!?!?!>Trancends his physical form and takes his time slaying us one at a time
I imagine most burn decks look like this- fire everywhere. You meet up with another planeswalker and just as you open your mouth to say something and they start flinging fire and lightning at your face, screaming incoherently.
>>39340972>Screaming incoherentlyRed mages in general. Goblin tribal, Red deck wins, burn. I like this
>In this corner: the vampires of innistrad (and human collaborators), mobilized for a massive hunt!>In the other corner: Aurochs, a...Cow? A cow with a bullwhip, and-oh, you struck some of my men down with magical cowardice, forcing them to flee>This is going to be the most embarassing hunt ever
>>39340525>The surface dwellers have polluted our lands>The tides of war are spreading>We rise out of the tide and strike with the force of a tidal wave, my lords and generals commanding the masses>Your life is ended by murmaids
> As the battle starts he opens a portal> the first one comes out weak and frail> but then more and more forms pour out, varied and different.> each of them started changing, growing wingsbecoming more muscular, producing more mouths in which to feed.> the enemy tries to see which one is the most important one to take out.> He is being torn to pieces realizing that ...> the Hive cannot be stopped
>>39340938Another EDH>Fellow walkers and I agree to settle dispute with large battle>Free-for all, but politics is to be expected. >An elemental, a couple humans, and two giants>Alright let's begin>Everyone begins ammassing an army>Giant 1 is just funneling life to his master>Giant 2 get's summoned, and goes apeshit>Attacking anyone and everyone>His master just laughs and claims he can't control him>Aforementioned walker starts creating artiffacts of power for giant>Gives him layered magics to prevent us from defending ourselves.>Fuck that guy.
>Meet up with a hippy chick>Rhino comes out of nowhere>She starts petting the rhino.>Seems pretty coo-wait..why are there more rhinos?>Centaurs start coming out, there's a bed of fungus for some reason>Saprolings are shooting out two at a time>Fuck ton of beasts and centaurs and shit, one or two giant bugs hanging out near the back>She still hasn't swung that's good>She says something to all of her creatures about giving thanks for all the blessings of family.>They all kneel to pray>Good good, now I can attack while this chick has bonding ti-wait... why are the clouds parting>SUDDENLY TWICE AS MANY ANGELS
>Hello, Planeswalkers.>Look at your Sol Ring, now back to me. >Now back at your Sol Ring, now back to me.>Sadly, it isn't me. But if it stopped being a sol ring and started being tinkered with it could fuck shit up like me.>Look down, back up, where are you? You're at the Seat of the Synod with the Colossus your Sol Ring could smash like. >What's in your hand? Back at me, I have it. It's an Artifact with infinite potential to become that thing you love. >Look again, the Artifact is now Blightsteel. >Anything is possible when you use Tinker. >I'm on a Leviathan
>>39341118Good god yes>Enemy walker and I bow>I begin by encroaching upon some territory>throw down some peon >He responds by claiming land, then ceding it to some weird manastone>Some sort of barrier, no idea>I order minion to attack, and summon another>He does the same thing, and amidst the smell of burning ape, he throws something into the Aether>The fool thinks he'll live long enough to see it appear>I again assault him, summoning another minion. >This fool will be dead soon enough.>Cue ape smell>He casts an enchantment of some sort>Honor of knight-hood or some nonsense>As he casts, reality tears apart>Suddenly, my minions and lands are gone>My repertoire of spells has been diminished>The monstrosity is on the board.The fuck?
The soldiers pop in one by oneThey multiply and form ranksTheir summoner brings more and more officers to boost the army's strengthThen they help him bring in the Obelisk in short orderWhen he wields the sun god's spear, everyone goes on the marchThe earth trembles and the enemy is silenced
>>39341011Is this Auroch whip?
>>39340938>I'm also guessing you don't care for the mechanic.And I'm guessing you don't understand the mechanic.
>>39341531I do. I believe we've had this discussion before, in another thread. You seem to have an undying hatred for this mechanic akin to Chandere's hatred of Narset.
>a grand contest of multiple planeswalkers>one is a red mage. you can tell because of the singe marks on him>he begins by laughing meniacally>the summoned minions of every participant arrive eager to serve, the usual disorientation replaced by a hint of the red mage's own histeria>then he casts some kind of enchamntment, Everyone feels their mana reserves flare with greater intensity>finally the red mage acts, with an even larger surge of power he summons a dragon with wings of flame. it lays waste to the amassed ground forces and charges to tear into one of its masters enemies. it is thankfully struck down quickly>immediately in its place he summons a...what the fuck is that>it charges as well, this time no answer is forthcoming>fnally with his monstrosity in place you can feel the sheer amount of power he wells up, the blue mage braces himself, this is his moment, but then as if it always was, the ground splits open, molten lava pours out showering everything. somehow, the red mage is the only walker harmed by this display, but where he is scorched by molten rock, every other competitor finds the showers if magma forming into humanoid forms, surrounding them, and then beating them to death with fists of flame>the red mage somehow looks disappointed in his victory"I was playing for the draw"
>This battle is tiring>All my efforts are burned alive, and yet she does nothing to attack me>Wait what?>Preparing to cast some foul magicks to call upon other spells. >Whatever>Calls upon the infallible grace of the angel's>I... wait>Proceeds to go beyond death, wracking her body by paying an insidious cost.> She is nothing more than a withered husk>IT STIRS>Death's very shadow appears, emboldened by this display of masochism.>With a single word, barely a whisper, she empowers it with an enchantment made for messengersThere is no god.

I've seen some planeswalkers are shown with weapons; do they even really need them? Aren't they like, all highly accomplished wizards. Unless it is plot relevant (like on Theros) get back to summoning or whatever it is planeswalkers do when making creatures.
>>39344571>>Oh great and now I've got smallpox.For some reason that just makes the whole thing more funny.
>>39344605most are, but a planeswalker spark does not confer any more magical ability than its owner originally had. some, like gideon are just better at punching than summoning.

>>39350121I'd like to assume a mage would at least try and find out their brain won't let them do it, same thing as a fizzle but no wasted energy.
>>39350687it would be more like being unable to get a sight of a gun on the targetthe concept is to fuzzy to think directly about and get a handle on
>>39350763Yeah on boggle that sounds right, I like the idea that your brain can't focus on it at all and thats what makes it untargetable, good read of hexproof. I'd still call that a fizzle lore-wise for lack of a better term.

A littlefinger like hippo.He gives everyone what they want, giving them fighters, healing them, filling their minds with great ideas... and doing the same for the enemy.
