What cards are there that kill planeswalkers in the current Standard? Off the top of my head there is Conclave Tribunal, Ixalan's Binding (both these die to the multitude of enchantment removal and the planeswalker is immediately usable as well), Vraska's Contempt, Price of Betrayal and The Elderspell. These are only two colors too. Is there anything else?

If you're counting Price of Betrayal, the list could get relatively long with damage based spells that could kill a walker depending on their loyalty count.

At any rate - some others that come to mind: Bedevil, Prison Realm, Casualties of War, Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God, Spark Harvest, Star of Extinction, Angrath's Rampage, Despark, Domri's Ambush

Sigh, no permanent removal in white (all enchantments, aka bounce-able by Teferi Time Reveler), the rest require red or black.

**** it, don't think Nexus is salvageable as long as Teferi is legal.

Interesting card, but there're many important cards that are monocolor, e.g. Narset.

Not willing to spend any more wildcards on Nexus right now, maybe in the future but not hopeful.

Thrash // Threat could kill a PW in just green.

But Nexus beats Teferi by bouncing it with Blink and then combo'ing off that same turn.

Magic's a simple game, 2 people take turns playing cards and in the end Divinevert wins 2-0...

Costs a ton of mana - 2 to cast Blink, 4 to cast Wilderness Reclamation (it can't already be on the board or Teferi would've bounced it), and 7 to cast Nexus. Hard to see it as realistic.

Thrash//Threat also needs a creature. Maybe Nexus sideboards could go full transform mode and start including Carnage Tyrant, idk, not willing to play Nexus right now.

Why not temur nexus? RAL pings can eventually kill walkers, or at least keep them from ultimate.
Is teferi really that necessary?
