Imposing Sovereign Discussion

tschiller on Silly little humans

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:

Draw

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

Removal

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.

Question: are you trying to build budget? Because Path to Exile is much better than Rebuke, and Cavern of Souls is a must for all tribal decks. Imposing Sovereign isn't exactly a modern card, at least not as a 4 of. I would consider playing a set of Aether Vial as well. Vial is pretty hard to say no to. Another card I would add is maybe two Ranger of Eos, as a way to refuel. Another good card, but for the sideboard, is Brave the Elements.

First, I'd change Skyline Despot for Dragonmaster Outcast or just take it out.

As for the place for the cards I suggested. Find out what doesn't work for you imo. I may tell you to get rid of a card you like to play because you just play differently. I think you know best the weak spots in the deck.

Also maybe another one of the tapping creatures -Imposing Sovereign?

Spirits on Kaalia, born in Heaven for Hell on Earth

I like Gisela, the Broken Blade she is as good as Baneslayer Angel. Bruna, the Fading Light is just too awful for me to include, Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is pretty awesome and what I want, but not worth the uselessness of drawing a Bruna, the Fading Light. If only Bruna, the Fading Light was an ETB trigger! She would be superstar!

Maybe Archfiend of Depravity, not sure what the aggro looks like? If it's creatures he could be good. If it's tokens a Sever the Bloodline might work. Blind Obedience or Imposing Sovereign might slow them down?

Harvester of Souls gives you no pain drawing, and free cast with Kaalia of the Vast. I feel Farsight Mask CMC 5, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis CMC 6 will be too slow to help vs. an aggro deck, by the time they resolve and activate the game might be over. Indulgent Tormentor is great, does he net you many draws?

There's always the cycling draws, Dragon Mage, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul. I use Maralen of the Mornsong and Stranglehold to eliminate my opponents draw lol.

Archangel of Thune can block, lifelink to mitigate the aggro damage, and then get bigger and out of control as well. There's just isn't useful drawing in these colors that doesn't cause pain, and maybe even give those advantages, but not Mardu.
