Battle Mastery Discussion

I would fix your mana base first. Average EDH decks have 45 mana sources, and Tiana definitely needs it, so consider more lands or rocks like Gilded Lotus/Boros Cluestone/Commander's Sphere/Fire Diamond/Marble Diamond etc etc. Fiery Mantle/Dragon Breath could replace Mark of Fury/Goblin War Paint? Guise of Fire/Bonds of Faith/Prophetic Ravings could replace Bloodshed Fever/Hammerhand/Cartouche of Zeal? Graceblade Artisan is a great duplicate of Champion of the Flame, it could replace Favored Hoplite/Call To Serve. If you want more combat map control you could run Goblin Spymaster/Overwhelming Splendor. Immolation/Inferno Fist are good duplicates of Ordeal of Purphoros.
Other than these replacements, I think you made a fine deck. I would include more finishers like Shiv's Embrace/Splinter Twin/Elemental Mastery/Burning Anger/Battle Mastery, or include a combo with Battered Golem/Paradox Engine/Endbringer/Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. I think some weaker finishers in this deck right now are Giant Spectacle/Lightning Reflexes/Madcap Skills/Lightning Talons. And I think Gift of Immortality is alright, but it doesn't protect your auras in extension if a creature-only board wipe happens, so another indestructible spells would be better.
I like the neat combo of Pariah and Tiana, and your enchantment based draw engines + Auratog/Faith Healer is another neat combo. Curse of Opulence is a great include, it's a one drop that adds influences damage away from you and toward your 120 combined life goal. Umbra Mystic/Anax and Cymede/Heavenly Blademaster are also great includes!

@Lucky77 Thanks for the upvote my dude! Battle Mastery looks like a fine card, I'll try it out. I think Luminarch Ascension requires too much mana since this deck is always using mana for the aura recycling/firebreathing, plus it's way too crazy for a casual deck like this haha.
@ZendikariWol You're all good my dude! Now you know why I was all excited for Tiana... enchantress shenanigans and Rosie the Riveter angel taking all these humans under her wing.
@Ocelot44 Great suggestions, and I agree with where you think this deck is rather weak. Sword of the Animist is a fantastic equipment, it adds one more power to the board, and by pulling out lands there's a greater chance for drawing into nonland cards. Sun Titan is also great, since this deck sometimes over draws and about 55/65 of the deck's spells are 3 CMC or less. And Darksteel Plate is especially good in Tiana because a creature-only wrath won't trigger Tiana's ability. I'll try these out and record any changes in the Update section!

Hey, love the deck (mostly because my main deck is a Bruna, Light of Alabaster deck that also abuses auras), and I'm definitely upvoting this. I do have a few suggestions that you may or may not find helpful. Battle Mastery is a great way to turn all of your auras into a voltron-style 1 hit KO. Luminarch Ascension, while not an aura will definitely help with getting more things to put your auras on and is just a good card anyways. I really like the deck and good job with it.

Hi JoeBlondie, it's been a while since I had the pleasure of playing this deck. But recently it was back in action and did make a serious stand. After my night of letting Sram go nuts from time to time, I headed back here to see what could be improved and I examined all the latest comments as well.
Leonin Abunas was a wasted draw in one of those games. Reading your comment changed my mind and I let it go...
The double strike suggestions are really spot on. So Silverblade Paladin and Battle Mastery found a home in this deck. Black sacrifice is becoming a thing in our meta, so your analysis of having more bodies is lifesaving indeed!
Mask of Memory seems really interesting and the filtering feels really in place. This is something I am going to give a serious try.
Ancient Tomb has been added too, together with a few other new cards. I could not believe that the tomb wasn't in this deck yet. I guess I always assumed it was in here already. Excellent catch!
Thank you very much for your indepth evaluation!!

I love the deck, definitely one of my favorite commanders from the set. Any commander that has its own built in card draw advantage engine built in for 3 mana should not be underestimated. My only suggestion is to add in some auras that can beef up Tuvasa, maybe Battle Mastery or Empyrial Armor

The obvious difference between Battle Mastery and Duelist's Heritage is the defensive perks given by mastery and the most versatile advantage of duelist's. I however prefer the defensive perks given by mastery (my creature having doublestrike constantly).
Carpet is usually just too unrealiable in my opionen, especially in a deck which don't want to take it to super late game. It's a good suggestion tho.
