Archangel of Tithes Discussion

I had this idea that a Warden could be a Subtype.
Wardens are defined as typically Humanoid beings who specialize, in part or in whole, hieromancey.
WOTC, incorrectly, considers hieromancer to be the practice of essentially "law magic".
Ghostly Prison? Hieromancey.
Archangel of Tithes? Hieromancey.
Gideon Jura? Hieromancey.
Well a Warden is someone who practices this magic, but it can extend out of white. Typically into black, and then blue - making it's dominate shard Esper.
Emak of Eternal Prisons
Legendary Creature - Sphinx Warden
At the beginning of your upkeep, tap target nonland permanent and put a prison counter on it. As long as you control Emak, permanents with prison counters on them can't be untapped.
Remove three prison counters from among permanents: Exile target nonland permanent or counter target spell or ability.
Creature - Human Warden
When Yawgmoth's Watcher enters the battlefield, you may exile a creature card from target player's graveyard. If you do, that player can't cast creatures with the same name as long as you control this creature.
The price of flesh is best when it is scarce.
Creature - Human Warden
When Orzhov Enforcer enters the battlefield, choose a spell type. Whenever an opponent casts a spell of the chosen type, you gain 1 life and they lose 1 life.
"Your crime was being alive in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Your bond shall be paid in full, with blood."
Just a few examples of how Wardens would be designed.

Tibalt, Rakish Instigator- Moved to maybe may add to side board to stop life gain deck if they're a thing in pioneer
Tezzeret, Artifice Master- Moved to Maybe
2xAbsorb-I that TriusMalarky said to have Absorb but than i remembered Render Silent and put both on here for know I will get rid of the weaker one, gaining life is nice but stopping players from casting other spells is too nice to ignore but im sure how many deck will have more than one spell per turn to be played in pioneer
1x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon- For big finisher
2x Spark Double- Mostly for fill but being able to copy planeswalkers is a nice boon though for 4 mana might be too much
Still going to find room for Wrath effects

I thing Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power make sense in this deck, because even if you end up ramping your opponents with the double white mana, you get draw cards if they use it to cast multiple spells.

It looks beautiful. A few ideas. Guardian of the Gateless and Seraph of the Sword are both decent blockers, Seraph Sanctuary gains you life, Baneslayer Angel is a 5 mana 5/5 w/ lifelink + first strike (and protection from demons and dragons), and Archangel of Tithes can help slow down attackers.

First, drop Scour. You're in the right colors to destroy or exile whatever you want for FAR less mana. Second, why not add Sphere of Safety, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Windborn Muse, Authority of the Consuls, Orim's Prayer, Righteous Cause, and Single Combat? They compliment what you're doing already pretty well. Lastly, it seems like you could use more life gain payoffs like Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams.

ShadowAblaze No problem, dude, it happens.
Pious Evangel Flip is a really cool card that I have tried to make work, but it was a little clunky. It might wind its way back into the deck again, but for now, I don't think it out-competes my other options.
Woe Strider is an interesting option. No need to justify it as a Thrull, either-- the Orzhov actually makes use of Horrors for some of their, uh... less scrupulous activities. This is another card worth considering, although the fact that it comes with a goat is somewhat confusing to me. If I decide that I want the Scry engine, I may replace my Bloodflow Connoisseur with this.
Dusk / Dawn is a perfectly good card, I just don't like the Aftermath mechanic. I would also be concerned that spending 5 mana to put all of my creatures back in my hand would leave me with no more mana to cast on those creatures, and I would just have to discard them again, anyway :(
Revel in Riches makes me so sad that it's pirate themed. Maybe I will commission an alter in the future. Until then, I'm not likely to play it. 5 mana is also a little prohibitive for a ramping effect in my deck, which is the reason I don't play Black Market.
Loving the suggestions, though! I've spent the last hour looking for my copy of Immortal Servitude. I just love it when a 32 cent card is hiding somewhere, so you can't put it into your 2,000 dollar deck.

Mardu wants to attack as often as possible, which makes this a bit of a mechanic fail as it restricts mobility on the boardstate. However, it's a bit of a vorthos win as it funnels combat down to 1v1 battles. If you are able to build around this, it really makes a powerful card.
For example, if you run Iroas, God of Victory or Angrath, Captain of Chaos then all of a sudden no opponent can block your incoming assaults as they may only block with one creature each, and they need a minimum of two. It also ties in nicely with Phyrexian Obliterator if they only control creatures with a relatively high power. Because you want to attack and are allowed up to three attackers (EDH designed), Eldrazi with Annihilator become quite impactful as well since they have both vigilance and haste now.
You can also play it into Mathas, Fiend Seeker decks to reign in his terror. It slows games down, meaning you have more time to take full advantage of his bounty counters.
Beautiful synergy with Zurgo Helmsmasher, as well.
There is also a very nasty work-around with this card, too. Not only do creatures with Myriad (Link) become horrendously more powerful, you can also take advantage of cards that either create or drop creatures into play attacking, such as Moonsilver Spear, Mardu Ascendancy, Ilharg, the Raze-Boar, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death and Kaalia of the Vast This is because they aren't being declared as attackers, and therefore not restricted to this card's rules.
I'd really love constructive criticism on this one, if you don't mind. I feel really quite proud of this design.

Hey hey dawg!
There are just so many ways you could go about this! I have no idea if I'm doing the right thing here but here are a few ideas
Return of the Wildspeaker --> out -- I just dont think this card is very good in general. You dont have a ton of big creatures and +3/+3 isn't that exciting. Would rather play Harmonize which is unconditional.
Austere Command --> maybeboard -- This could be wrong, but I was looking for cards to cut and felt like an expensive wrath wasn't exactly where your deck wanted to be.
Keeper of Fables --> maybeboard -- I mean I get it that you can potentially draw up to 3 cards a turn, but its just so meh.
Greater Auramancy --> Maybeboard -- I was considering this cuz I think there's potential for a strong enchantments theme. Opted for Sterling Grove instead because it also tutors but this is here just as a consideration.
Archon of Absolution --> maybeboard -- Its on theme but I don't think its taxing enough right? maybe I'm crazy and this is exactly what you want cuz you can trigger goad with your commander?? but its 4 mana as well idk I just took it out cuz its floor is very low.
Kinjalli's Sunwing --> out -- Not sure why this card was in here to begin with, I mean you aren't granting mass haste or anything and the whole idea is you're goading people so few people are gonna have blockers, plus plenty of your is evasive. I think Thalia, Heretic Cathar feels this role very well already.
Urabrask the Hidden --> maybeboard -- This card is sweet but its 5 mana.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion --> maybeboard -- Elspeth feels a little out of place.
Beast Whisperer --> maybeboard -- Not into this as a reliable form of card draw.
Soltari Champion --> out -- I get the idea, you're trying to trigger goad, but isn't this card just bad? a 3 mana unblockable with battlecry doesn't seem particularly playable.
Gruul War Chant --> out -- This card is just way too low impact for 4 mana.
Sunblast Angel --> Maybeboard -- I get the idea cuz everyone is attacking and tapped but meh.
Dryad Sophisticate --> out -- I don't think unblockable 2/1 are good enough even if they do trigger marisi. I like the idea of playing evasive hatebears or something. Maybe I'm just way off base with this deck haha
The Great Henge --> maybeboard -- this card is sweet and super pwoerful but you got a bunch of dorky 2/2s and stuff this thing is gonna routinely cost you like 7 mana and at that point wouldn't you just play Zendikar Resurgent? (I didn't put zendikar resurgent in though but if you want an effect like henge, I think I'd go with resurgent)
Druids' Repository --> main -- Idk! this seems cool and fun!! All your creatures become mana dorks cuz they'll be attacking anyway! Seems p good! Also if you make a bunch of 1/1 tokens with Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering you make a bunch of mana when they attack!
Skullclamp --> main -- I think because stuff like Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor plus having a bunch of stuff that might end up dying this'll draw you a lot of cards. Plus if you play Tempt with Vengeance and Sylvan Offering its bonkers!!
Insurrection --> main -- Its a sweet win condition!!
Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor --> main -- in my view this exactly what you want to be doing!
ok wow this comment is getting long so I'm just gonna list the rest of the cards that I think should go in/out:
War's Toll -- in
Sterling Grove -- in
Sphere of Safety - in
Sylvan Offering - in
Enlightened Tutor - in
Harmonize - in
Goblin Spymaster - in
Tahngarth, First Mate - in (this one just seems fun :D totally get it if you decide not to)
Tempt with Vengeance - in
Teferi's Protection - in
Rishkar's Expertise - out
Grand Melee - maybe, for now I decided to just play war's toll but maybe neither are good enough
Whew!! Can't wait to play against this in any shape or form! Hope at least some of these suggestions help!
