Updated Top Planeswalkers List

Right, this list needed updating as meta shifts and new cards get printed, the old one was looking a bit tired and frankly wrong in several places. I'm not going to do a bit talk about the ins and outs of each as that goes on forever and would likely be a large duplication of the various reviews of the cards. This is just the walkers that have seen at least one outing since my last list so a selection of the very worst walkers are no longer included. I am guessing at Pyromaster as I have not played it yet and based on my over excitement at most recent walkers it is a ranking worth taking with a pinch of salt.

1.   Jace, The Mind Sculptor
2.   Elspeth, Knight-Errant
3.   Garruk Wildspeaker
4.   Liliana of the Veil
5.   Gideon Jura
6.   Chandra, Pyromaster
7.   Jace Beleren
8.   Tezzeret, the Seeker
9.   Karn Liberated
10. Sorin Markov
11. Timayo, the Moon Sage
12. Chandra Firebrand
13. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
14. Elspeth Tirrel
15. Ajani Vengeant
16. Ral Zarek
17. Garruk, Primal Hunter
18. Ajani Goldmane
19. Vraska, the Unseen
20. Ajani, Caller of Prides
21. Jace, Memory Adept
22. Garruk Relentless
23. Koth of the Hammer
24. Chandra Nalaar
25. Sarkhan Vol
26. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker
27. Venser, Shaper Savant,
28. Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded
29. Domri Rade

The big changes are Knight Errant dropping down to second as she is far less game over when you are not making her early with Sol Ring and Black Lotus. In the more midrange environment Mind Sculptor just offers more value and utility. Beleren has also shot up the ratings as control decks increased in popularity. The rest of the top walkers have not changed much however there has been much shifting about of the tier two planeswalkers from 12 to 23 or so in this list. This is mostly the result of having played them more and becoming more attuned as to how and where each should be used. Meta shifts have increased the value of the midrange suited ones as well.
