@Topical_Island Superfriends in and of itself isn't quite good enough. I like having Mentor in there as a way to close the game. It also buys time for the 1-2 Moat in your deck to make their way to your hand.

I'm predicting a Mentor variant to come around that features Moat. Hear me out: Moat is an absurdly good card all around. Mentor already runs Wear//Tear in the sideboard. I think Joe Brennan's Mentor list is heading in the right direction in terms of Planeswalkers. Additionally, Paradoxical Outcome is an absurd card all around. I'd like to see a Mentor Walker list come out that slams Moat early, plays Walkers and good cards to get tokens, then Paradoxical Outcomes the Moat away to open the gates of hell.

tl;dr Moat is a good card.

Question really becomes: does the Mentor list in its current form continue to exist? Or will we see a rise in Paradoxical Outcome and/or a Planeswalker list? Joe Brennan has a good starting point and I feel that focusing more on Planeswalkers with Moat is going to be a hot deck.

Personally, I'm replacing the 2 Gushes I can't play with Preordain and Sol Ring. Clash At The Cradle is going to be interesting with all the Mentor players tweaking their lists. Balance might also see a hit in these lists since Gush basically fueled that card.
