Clout of the Dominus Discussion

My only problem with this deck is that it says Izzet in the title when it’s a Jeskai colored deck...
other than that, it’s a unique idea! Also, this is the first deck other than my U/R deck that uses Clout of the Dominus!!!

Hey Nina26. Good questions! I would definitely play the full playset of Thought Erasure and Discovery / Dispersal, which would probably mean getting rid of 3 Unexplained Disappearance, 2 Barrier of Bones, 1 Dazzling Lights, 1 Notion Rain, and 1 land. (Discovery makes it easy to fix mana early, so you can get by with 22 lands.) I would also consider substituting Sinister Sabotage for Clout of the Dominus, although that will partly depend on what you're playing against. I haven't tested Mission Briefing before, but I could definitely see playing at least two - maybe taking out the other two Barrier of Bones.

More Handy Deck tech:
Potential Win Conditions:
Insurrection (strong if a player has a creature deck popping off)
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (flash him in at the end of an opponent's turn to make them discard their whole hand)
Nezahal, Primal Tide (can protect itself from removal by exiling out whenever targeted. Also draws cards when people try to remove it, or do anything else)

A card's color identity is determined by the mana symbols in its casting cost, rules text (but not reminder text), and any color-indicators or color-defining text (such as on the type line of the back face of double-faced cards). For the purposes of determining color identity, hybrid mana symbols count as symbols of both colors.

could all find a home in this deck. You're also pretty low on both removal and counterspells for a deck that wants to be 'control'.
are decent removal options that won't break the bank. 6-8 targetted removal spells will be what you want to shoot for. 1-2 of something that can deal with a whole board of guys is a good idea too, like
Anger of the Gods
are some of the most popular counterspells that you're missing.
are all less popular options that still get the job done, and can save you from shelling out $120 for a set of cryptics. Feel free to mix and match counters, but be sure you're getting a good mix of ones that are powerful early game and ones that are powerful late game. Try to shoot for 6-10 counterspells, your sweet spot will be somewhere in there. As for cuts,
Clout of the Dominus
will all probably struggle to pull their weight in the deck.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

Hi, I'm just dropping in after seeing the link you left on your twitter page.
If you are looking for just 4 cards to remove, I think that Clout of the Dominus , Graceblade Artisan , Norn's Annex , and Celestial Mantle would be the first cards I would look at potentially removing.
Looking at the deck, I'm assuming that the general game plan is to fort up and let Karona get passed around the table with the hope that your opponents will swing at each other with it. If I've got that right, then plan B appears to be suiting up Bruna or Uril and smashing face. Maybe I have the priority of the two plans reversed.
That being said, I think that there are a few things to consider. Celestial Mantle and Unflinching Courage work well on creatures you control, like Uril, but aren't cards that you would want on Karona as she is being passed around the table. The Mantle gives life to the enchanted creature's CONTROLLER, and Unflinching Courage gives lifelink to the creature so Karona's controller would also be the one gaining life. For your deck Unflinching Courage in a drastically inferior version of the Armadillo Cloak you also run because the Cloak's triggered life gain effect will always give YOU the life instead of Karona's controller. It's an important difference that is worth looking at when refining your selection of auras.
Aside from that, I think that Clout of the Dominus isn't the best choice in the deck. The fact that it gives shroud is counter-intuitive to a voltron strategy.
If you decide to take Celestial Mantle out, maybe it would be worth considering running Pollenbright Wings ? If you put it on Karona it will always give you the tokens, not Karona's controller, which can help give you an army of saprolings that you can then boost with Karona's ability when it gets back to your turn.
Of course, that all depends on people actually choosing to attack with Karona. Since you are already running pillowfort cards, I think that it is worth running cards like Fumiko the Lowblood that force your opponents to attack. The rules say that even if you have a Propaganda in play, opponents still have to attack someone to meet the requirement. They can't just choose you, decide not to pay to attack, and claim that their attack has been negated. If they don't pay to attack you then they have to attack someone else if possible. It's a useful way to get your opponents to whittle themselves down and to limit the use that they can get out of their utility creatures.
The deck has a number of ways to try to handle your opponents' cards, but you are pretty reliant on Anguished Unmaking and Merciless Eviction to permanently deal with opponents' utility creatures. Everything else you have either bounces or just prevents those creatures from attacking you. It might be worth looking at cards like Prison Term and Darksteel Mutation as more effective enchantment-based removal options that you can search up with your enchantment tutor cards if you need them. Winds of Rath is also useful for helping to clear the board while leaving your enchanted creatures untouched.
I don't know how much of that helps with the direction you are currently looking to take the deck, but I hope that it gave you some ideas.

Do you think running a couple Clout of the Dominus would be good in here?
