Today we are using Luxior, Giada's Giftimage to turn some planeswalkers into creatures. Probably the best planeswalker to animate is The Wandering Emperorimage since she can then put +1/+1 counters on herself growing power and toughness dramatically since Luxior, Giada's Giftimage gives +1/+1 for each counter on her which includes Loyalty counters and +1/+1 counters. The emperor's flash allows us to pull off some surprising plays and attack with our planeswalker nearly immediately. We are also using The Eternal Wandererimage which has a ton utility being able to basically sweeper the board, or blink a creature or artifact. To combo with The Eternal Wandererimage's blink ability we have The Mightstone and Weakstoneimage which can draw cards or basically remove creatures. To pair with The Mightstone and Weakstoneimage's artifact mana we have some large artifact payoffs between Cityscape Levelerimage and Portal to Phyrexiaimage. The portal we can also blink to force our opponents to sacrifice more creatures. Besides all that we have a ton of white value cards.
