They get ridiculous in one on one (and absolutely break limited), but what about in multiplayer or even yet, Commander? Which ones hold their own and which one are over hyped for the panic button they slam?

Strategy: Looking at the Super Friends deck

Technology:  The Chain Veil


Among other things, we’ll talk about different cards that help you fight against and with, the Super Friends deck, highlighted by discussion on the recent new addition: The Chain Veil.


Other Planeswalker tech: Inexorable tide
