Aegis of the Gods Discussion

@kamarupa I do not hold the same thought. The singular point of a sideboard card is to readily allow the deck to efficiently, effectively and reliably change their strategy and defenses to better combat stresses. Aegis of the Gods is not now and would not be something that I could considered a reliable form of defense which all together negates its purpose which is to be our answer. Plainly put what do we use Ivory Mask for? We use the mask to help fight against burn, mill, and storm. Aegis is a truly terrible card as it dies to every single type of mainboard removal that the various permutations of these modern decks run such as Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Path to Exile, Fatal Push. The inclusion of such a card that literally dies to everything would be equivalent to us willing adding dead cards to our mainboard with the only received benefit being a sense of protection which could on any turn be stripped away.

No mention of Aegis of the Gods RE player-hexproof?! I think the 2CMC outweighs the double enchantment/creature removal vulnerability. Granted, it's a little bit more expensive, but still not in the OMFG you've got to be kidding cost range.

Thanks! Yes, this is a re-upload of an old deck, but I still like the feedback! I am thinking of using Aegis of the Gods for hexproof because is it a cheap but good card.

Chaplain's Blessing can be replaced. There are much better one drops than that and you have plenty of life gain in your creatures already. Authority of the Consuls is one of the most underrated one drops IMO, but be ready to sideboard if your opponent plays few creatures. Journey to Nowhere is a cheaper Stasis in mana cost and isn't too expensive. Life gain will only help you so much in games that are drawn out. I'd also recommend a card that makes you hexproof to help protect your life total for Chalice of Life  Flip. I really like that card in this deck and I would go for a playset of that. Aegis of the Gods and True Believer will help protect your life gain strategy. You can attach Swiftfoot Boots to them as well for even more fun. Welding Jar to protect the Chalice or Boots too. Good luck!

Thanks chadsansing! I'd never heard of Mark of Asylum, that would be a great add here! My meta does not use a lot of player targeting, otherwise I definitely agree on Aegis of the Gods. Greater Auramancy is a bit out of my price range currently, but I definitely like it in the deck. Grim Guardian is a fun creature, but I worry that it is slow for what I'm trying to do. And I love the idea of Athreos, God of Passage, but the deck is mostly tokens and so he doesn't end up being as helpful.

Cool take on Zur!

Aegis of the Gods and Mark of Asylum might be good to test to protect your creatures with Athreos, God of Passage, Greater Auramancy, Grim Guardian, and Mark of Asylum to help protect your creatures and enchantments.

Have fun brewing!

Some hexproff might be nice at least on sideboard. Aegis of the Gods

I will leave the rest to you, it seems like your getting it now. Ask if you need any more ideas.

why are you playing Lifelink? If your worried about burn you should be playing the leyline or Aegis of the Gods. You should probably be playing something like Kataki, War's Wage or Stony Silence for affinity. Also, Fatal Push seems good here.
