MTG: Top 10 Planeswalkers
Taking a look at the best planeswalkers ever printed!
Well, my good friend Mike1229 made an article about planeswalkers not too long ago and I figured it was time for me to give it a shot. Check his article out too. But, let’s get down to it. What are the best planeswalkers?

The most awesome planeswalker of Zendikar, this card’s first two abilities are usable as soon as it comes into play. The first ability can take out smaller creatures and can also ebb at your opponent’s life total. Not only that, but this ability also increases your life as it works. The second ability works with the vampire tribal decks, as many of the new vampire cards work better when your opponent has ten life or less, so instantly making an opponent’s life ten provides a huge boost. Of course, the last ability is Mindslaver, so how can that be bad? This card has great balance and offers a lot as a planeswalker. However, the biggest downside of this card is that it costs six mana, which is just one mana too much for it to be any higher than this on the list. It’s a total bomb in EDH as well, and that’s the biggest reason it makes the list.

Like Liliana, this card is about its tutor ability. You want to bring out that artifact you need for an an infinite combo. Artifacts are so powerful, and this card is like their king. Have fun tutoring! The final ability is alright, but it’s a lot weaker than the second. The first ability is used by many players to go infinite with various artifacts or kick off combos. If you’re running a deck with lots of artifact lands, this card’s first ability works the same as Garruk Wildspeaker’s first ability.This card is a little limited because it’s pretty much only good for artifact decks, but it has a lot of power to throw around! It’s downfall is that it cost five mana, and the best planeswalkers all run at about four mana.
