Quote from thnkr »I personally run both Padeem and Leonin Abunas in my sideboard. The extra card draw usually matters in matchups I bring Padeem in for, allowing me to dig to try to either set or keep the lock (Gx Tron, Jund, etc.). I wouldn't bring Padeem in against Tokens or anything, of course. The reason I run the split is so that I'm essentially running two Padeem, but they back eachother up rather than one dying to the legendary rule.
Do you run Tezz in your SB?
An interesting idea: Padeem actually helps vs tron too in theory (turns of their Eldrazi cast triggers).
