I do so love Planeswalkers that can defend themselves.

Combos with creatures.

I love how the white is blowing people's minds. Sorin is all about order and long-range planning, the epitome of white. He created Avacyn to maintain balance so that the human population that he and the other vampires depend on wouldn't be overfished to extinction by the gangs of monsters roaming Innistrad. Not to mention the whole "sealing the Eldrazi away so that the multiverse doesn't, you know, end" thing.

Sorin will totally yoink your blood and eat his cereal out of your skull when he's finished (black), but he also has the foresight to realize that there needs to be rules and balance to ensure that everything keeps on going, since society disappearing means his kind disappearing (white). It's not really that hard to wrap your mind around, folks.

@DarthParallax This is hopeless. I don't know why I'm bothering. Maybe it's so you don't rub off on impressionable new people who think you're on to something.

Anyways, for starters, watch this video.
Now watch it about eight more times. That should give you a rough idea of what I want to express.

Now, let's deconstruct your "combo" to find the glaring flaws.
For starters, this board set up is so ridiculous that your opponent practically has to sit there and do nothing for a dozen turns while you set it up. I noticed you said this wasn't practical for a normal game, but this isn't practical in any game except an EDH game in which you gave yourself about twenty extra turns. The only people who don't scoop after you pull that off are either morbidly curious or extremely confident they can still win.

"Step 1: Kraj targets Sorin himself with Sorin's Ultimate."
You know what, I'll be nice. I'll assume you spent some time working up Kraj so that ... (see all)

I don't want him to be as good as he is, but every time I read this card I'm just astonished. It's good. It's damn good. At 4 mana, how can this be anything but good.

Sorin is angry, and wants his Innistrad back!

I don't quite like his last ability though, it takes quite some time to charge up and its in the colours of permanent and creature removal. The Emblem is more cost effective as well

Still 5/5. Welcome home, Sorin!

@ Thana. You didn't actually give him .5 stars for his type did you? Let me explain this to you. Black= death, not evil. There is no reason for werewolves to be black. They are red and green depending on whether they want to depict their nature at wild animals or furious killers. Vampires come in red to show their recklessness. And most importantly, Sorin has white because he is no average vampire. It's indicative of his oath to help mankind so that they have a fighting chance against the horrors of Innistrad. As for the card himself, if you make good use of an emblem, it's a huge deal. He comes in handy with token gen too. BW tokens are big because of him, and once ratchet bomb and corrosive gale cycle out, they'll explode. I love this card.

Well, hello there, ridiculously expensive money Mythic! :D

60$ in pre-sales right now. Will go down, but might have staying power unlike, say, Karn.

I love seeing love for Orzhov.

It is a novel idea to kill off your own planeswalkers to get one more loyalty ability, that does work, but yeah he's just overexcited past logic.

You could cast your PW, use a -X ability, kill it with Sorin, and it will reanimate as an entirely new permanent with no memory of its previous existence to use a +X ability.


Myrbattlecube is right in every way. To begin with, Experiment Kraj will gain the abilities of these Artifact Creature Planeswalkers, but he has no loyalty counters or means to get them (all PWs abilities read "remove X loyalty counters: do this"). You could use Fate Transfer to give Kraj loyalty, but even then he is limited to one loyalty ability per turn.

As Myrbattlecube stated; untapping Kraj with Tezzeret will do nothing. Kraj would not be tapping to activate loyalty abilities.

You also cannot activate Ultimates as many times as you think. A Planeswalker with 0 loyalty goes to the graveyard as a state-ba... (see all)
