Holy Mantle Discussion

Spirit Mantle is counter-intuitive with Shu Yun. Whatever creature is enchanted with it won't be able to be targeted by Shu Yun's ability since the enchanted creature has protection from creatures. Same issue with Holy Mantle .

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is really good. Also, I love a good Rancor . Your opponents will have a hard time getting rid of it. Hammer of Nazahn , Darksteel Plate , and Bastion Protector let you attack without fear. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great card for EDH. If you want commander damage, Whispersilk Cloak , Rogue's Passage , Spirit Mantle , Aqueous Form , Aether Tunnel , Unquestioned Authority , and Holy Mantle are options. Also Spectra Ward . These are good options for voltron if you go that way.

Have you thought about using Holy Mantle Rogue's Passage they can make a creature unlockable and let you go through most defenses that an opponent might play

No. Protection prevents 4 things:

Damage - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be damaged by creatures.
Equipping/enchanting - Not relevant with Holy Mantle, but White Knight can't be enchanted with Unholy Strength.
Blocked - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be blocked by creatures, which is to say it cannot be blocked.
Targeted - A creature with Holy Mantle cannot be targeted by abilities of creatures (like Shriekmaw's ability).

As Wakening Sun's Avatar's ability doesn't target or deal damage, it's not effected by protection.

If I have a creature with Holy Mantle on it and someone casts Wakening Sun's Avatar is it prevented since it's a creature destroying?

Hey there! Pretty sick deck ya got going there, as an avid Uril player myself, id like to suggest a few cards, namely cards that add protection from creatures to give an unblockable effect such as Holy Mantle and Unquestioned Authority and if infinite combos aren't frowned upon in your group, perhaps you could use Bear Umbra to untap your lands, creating enough mana for Aggravated Assault with each extra combat step, Aye, good luck m8!

ClockworkSwordfish - You know what, yeah...I don’t really have a good excuse for not including Shield of the Oversoul. It really is an obvious inclusion in this deck. I’ll add it as a replacement for Holy Mantle. Thanks for the suggestion!

facepalm I supposed I should have expected my snark to bring Karmic Justice right back to me, eh? haha Give enough snark, you'll eventually get it back! XD Touche!

Running Auras with Sram and Spiritdancer would definitely help since you'd be able to trigger Mesa Enchantress as well since all Auras are Enchantments; and it looks like you've found most of the powerhouse Auras.

If you're looking for more lockdown Auras, I've always liked Prison Term, Suppression Bonds and Faith's Fetters since they take them out of combat AND turn off their activated abilities (plus the latter two can hit things other than creatures).

Buffing Auras Holy Mantle and Angelic Destiny or other anti-combat Auras like Pacifism, Guard Duty, Temporal Isolation, Journey to Nowhere can also be niche, but useful in the right meta.

Sigarda's Aid can help your Auras gain Flash. While Authority of the Consuls gains you life and slows down opponent's using creatures (especially hasty ones). Path of Bravery can also be an Anthem effect and gains you life.

Open the Armory and Three Dreams are useful for finding Auras in your deck.
