Imposing Sovereign Discussion

I noticed that you had Imposing Sovereign in your deck. If you like that concept, consider Authority of the Consuls. I personally don't think it's an overly powerful ability (still very good though!), but it's quite potent versus haste/token decks as well as in tabletop multiplayer. And, of course, passive life-gain is always nice. :)

Kataki, War's Wage in the sideboard? Imposing Sovereign? Great deck!

For one more mana, Thalia, Heretic Cathar does everything Imposing Sovereign does on more effective body.

And now removed Sigarda, Heron's Grace because of that many Collected Companys and added Imposing Sovereign.

Pretty unfocused. If I were you, I would cut Attendant for 4 Grand Abolishers. I'd also add 1 more Thalia's Lieutenant, as well as 1 to 2 Imposing Sovereign in the place of your Precinct Captains. Increasing Devotion is waaaaay too much mana for what it does. Replace it with Brave the Elements. Replace Rebuke with Path to Exile. Cut two Ranger of Eos and replace with a one- or two-drop, something like Student of Warfare that's a more reliable mana sink. Also, maybe a couple of Mana Tithe and some Wrath of God in the board.

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:


There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around


Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!

I'll increase the number of annoying creatures, like Soldier of the Pantheon, Imposing Sovereign. Maybe Brave the Elements.
