    Such a good planeswalker, and so consistent.

    The way I read it her first ability gives half mana to the fetched card at level three and half mana rounded up at level 4. So does that mean the difference between level 3 and level 4 arkbows invocations is that level 4 occasionally adds 1 more mana to the card? That seems kind of... lame.

    You read it correctly, and yep, it is kind of lame. Fortunately her abilities, overall, are so good that she can afford a lame upgrade there.

    Been toying around with this standard deck in tg.  Once I got it to this current set of cards, perfect 8 for 8.

    Creatures
    Gishath, Sun's Avatar
    Ghalta, Primal Hunger
    Zacama, Primal Calamity

    Spells
    Vivien's Invocation
    Commune with Dinosaurs
    Rabid Bite
    Thunderherd Migration
    Deathsprout

    Support
    Thaumatic Compass
    Breeding Pool


    Deck has many was to get things out.  CtD fetches and coverts gems.  Vi brings on to the field and destroys opponent creature.  Once has sun Avatar can bring out any dino for free.  At that point primal Hunger is free.  Creature removal has plenty.  With rabid Bite, VI and deathsprout.  Deathsprout dies double duty by pulling out BP.  Put compass into stall for time.  Zacama helps with life, destroys enchantment, or does 3 damage. 

    Any thoughts on improving in standard format.
