tamiyo has very strong effects, but remember, 4 mana -> 5 mana is a big jump. That's 1 more turn where the 4 mana walker could use an ability, and 1 more turn for the opponent to play something else to threaten your walker.

I think she's a good threat in control mirrors that tend to rely on 1-2 fat creatures where tamiyo can lock them down, and since control games last long, she might actually reach ultimate. Against aggro she should probably be boarded out. Drawing a bunch of cards against tapped weenies is nice, but I would rather be playing a board sweeper or else I'm dead in 1-2 turns (especially if you're staring down a sword of war and peace). I suppose gideon + tamiyo could work, assuming you drop gideon the turn before and +2, hope he survives, next turn drop tamiyo and draw cards, then gideon +2's again. This might not work in reality though.

I had never preordered a card before Tamiyo. I can't say I'm disappointed, she's everything I thought she could be.

I've been playing her in an Esper tapout deck with Gideon and Lingering Souls. Lingering Souls buys you time and interacts well with her -2. Gideon turns dudes sideways and then you draw even more.

I have drawn 17 cards in 1 turn off her -2 ability. My opponent cast Spider Spawning into my Gideon. After flashing it back and with my Gideon at 1 loyalty I cast Tamiyo. The next turn I shrugged off my dead Gideon as I proceeded to draw 17. Needles to say, I found the wrath I needed and then some.

As others have said, her ultimate is insane but does not immediately end the game. I did have an opponent concede when I showed them my hand of Day of Judgment and Mana Leak with her emblem in play, however.

I'm looking forward to seeing her in a future kamigawa set. It's really awesome how Wizards put her in Innistrad to remind us of the other planes that exist =)

If they ever go back to Kamigawa (which they hopefully wouldn't screw up as much as Mirrodin) she is definitely a moonfolk and there will definitely be another one of her. Aside from my fixation with story line, this card is pretty awesome with some kamigawan cards like Soramaro, First to Dream or Masumaro, First to Live, certain kamis like kami of the crescent moon and the moonfolk and patron of the moon

Probably one of the awesomer ultimates on a Planeswalker

For most decks that would be running this, her -8 basically says "You win the game."

Dawnglare Invoker for her -2.

I'm fairly sure her ultimate combos with more things than any other ability in magic.

She fits so well, flavor and ability wise, in a Soramaro, First to Dream deck. She looks like she's straight out of the Kamigawa block.
