Aegis of the Gods Discussion

SaberTech, Yes.

Regardless, I think it's much more important to have redundancy of win conditions than combo pieces. The deck is pretty much good in that regard at this point.

One thing I would recommend putting back in would be Spirit of the Labyrinth. This is a problem for a ton of decks, and does't really hurt you at all. (Only 3 cards here actually actually draw cards, Phyrexian Altar, Erebos, and Skullclamp, and Skullclamp can kill Spirit.)

It's much more useful than Aegis of the Gods and doesn't shut down your own game plan, the way Containment Priest or Eidolon of Rhetoric might.

Have you thought about adding Leyline of Sanctity? It's good on its own but even better against storm and spellslinger decks. Another alternative to that is Aegis of the Gods.

It'd be really helpful to know what kind of deck your cousin is running. If he uses lots of spells that aren't creatures, I suggest something like Grand Abolisher or Aegis of the Gods. But white has a crazy amount of powerful humans. I also recommend playing anthem cards like Honor of the Pure or Glorious Anthem to make your massive amounts of dudes huge.

Thraben Standard Bearer make human soldier tokens, but discarding a card is what I am trying to avoid. Aegis of the Gods may help slow down cards like Inquisition of Kozilek. I'm not entirely married to the swords if there are cheaper (both money and mana cost) options to buff and even protect creatures. But Rebuff the Wicked and Dawn Charm would be good to try out until I have money to buy the swords.

Thanks StackerMagician! That's a card I missed and definitely one to consider. I'm just not sure I have enough creatures that don't already have undying/persist synergies with Solemnity to make it worth the addition given it isn't tutorable with zur. I've also been considering Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, but unfortunately, the cards I really want him to give undying to (Zur the Enchanter, Aegis of the Gods, and Auramancer) are humans, so he's not as effective. Also does anyone have an opinion on adding Razaketh, the Foulblooded as an extra tutor/sac outlet for the Geralf's Messenger/Geralf's Mindcrusher combo? I'm thinking he's a bit expensive and the pay 2 life clause makes him not worth it, but if anyone has another opinion I'd love to hear it.

Considering your description, I assume this is meant as a pillowfort deck. In case this is the case (lol), here are my recommendations:

Whatever you decide to use, I sincerely hope you'll get of Entomb, Buried Alive and Jarad's Orders. First off, these cards are nice, but are better suited in a deck that's heavy on recursion. I'd replace them wih Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen or if you have the money, Demonic Tutor and/or Vampiric Tutor. Second, you're using Ground Seal; this seems very counter-productive.
