Oath of Kaya Discussion

I looking to add the Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , Oath of Kaya , and Teferi, Temporal Archmage . What cards would you suggest removing to accommodate these cards? As well what would you add or modify to have the deck more at a competitive level and take off quicker?

Demarge on Black white tokens

Nether Traitor and Phyrexian Altar are the two most well known cards for teysa. it won't take much to pinpoint why.

Bojuka Bog is fairly good for graveyard hate, Faerie Macabre also can get the job done vs a reanimation or value cycling type deck.

Dreadhorde Invasion is essentially another Bitterblossom only the token gets bigger and eventually can gain you life.

Oath of Kaya can be a kind of nice way to slow opponent's creatures from attacking you, the proc triggers for each planeswalker being attacked and still goes off even if they're blocked.

Demarge on Always Standard Discard

This is unlikely the deck for Drill Bit , Oath of Kaya is functionally a much more versatile card for the format atm, it kills most aggressive creatures, punishes loose opposing planeswalker play, and puts you up on a higher health total, I'll have to admit the bellhaunts are likely too heavy white to really be consistent, the mild bolas impression is nice sometimes, but he's also more for the Command the Dreadhorde variants of esper control.

You may enjoy Disinformation Campaign as a discard spell that cantrips and can do so again later.

As a deck with kefnet you may want to run 3-4 Opt and 1-2 Chemister's Insight to dip into more miracle chances on your opponent's turn, not only do they help kefnet when it's on the field but they also help you get back to him.

Now I have to admit, your sideboard is likely a mess, without a 5-12 The Rack s your mainboard is likely already overflowing with discard spells that you'll see dead draws too often. fit spells that mess with the decks that are pummeling you Lazotep Plating I'll admit is kind of my pet card to play as a more reactive hexproof that will also save your creatures/planeswalkers, the amass 1 can also stop some x/1 bodies. Mortify is likely going to be better than tower in most cases your opponent has hexproof from a leyline while also being a kill spell, Cry of the Carnarium is likely also going to be quite important for the format.

Hey there. I got to say, I really like your take on this tribe in standard. I tried to make it work back in the day when Rivals came out, was rather casual fun but still fun. ;) (Before that I used the vampire tribe shell with Crested Sunmare shenanigans. Great times.)

There are only a few things I'd like to point out I might do differently here. Probably things you already considered but nontheless here you go.

I very much like the idea of somehow draining the opponent out with Cruel Celebrant but adding it as a four-of seems kinda odd in a aggro deck to me. In this slot I personally would prefere the good ol' Adanto Vanguard . Yeah, I'm aware of the hate she is facing, but still. In a aggro build absolutely mandatory. ;)

Second thing I noticed is that I might play a mix of Icon of Ancestry and Radiant Destiny . Because former seems more like a lategame card and you surely don't want to end up there with an aggro build. HEHE. Maybe I'm just wrong here but maybe even Unbreakable Formation would be an option for this spot. (Or even Pride of Conquerors ?)

Besides that I might cut one plains for an additional Isolated Chapel .

I'm currently running a BW midrange build and there I really liked Oath of Kaya and Despark in the sideboard. Maybe they could be options for you as well.

I hope this was of some help to you. I'm seriously considering to go back to full scale vamps for this season. If only the playset of the new Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord wasn't like at least 50 bucks.

Have a good one.

If you still want planeswalker tutoring, I'd replace Deploy the Gatewatch with Ignite the Beacon . 2 less mana, you still net two planeswalkers, and instant speed. Ajani Unyielding has an incredibly useful ultimate.

I'm really not sure what Gods' Eye, Gate to the Reikai is doing in your deck tbh. I don't think Kaya's Ghostform does enough to be played over other cards, same with Oath of Kaya . I personally would cut Kaya, Orzhov Usurper too. I promise I don't hate Kaya as a character! but Kaya, Ghost Assassin is the better of the two imo

Also, TheBloopKing suggested Time of Need . It's a great card for fetching legendary creatures, but that's all it will get. So I wouldn't run it

can I ask why Anafenza, the Foremost ? sure it puts a counter on another attacking creature. But it stops your creatures from going into your graveyard. Instead, can I suggest Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for its -2?

I would also remove Oath of Kaya and Oath of Gideon as you aren't going to be getting much value out of them. Karn's Bastion does Oath of Gideons job way better, for putting counters onto everything rather than when a planeswalker enters the battlefield. I've also found that the extra counter rarely matters on the planeswalkers. Oath of Kaya doesn't stack, and barely stalls in my opinion. With only 11 planewalkers, I'm not entirely sure what justifies it. Personally would add Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist to control the attacks towards you, and Bolas's Citadel which puts you so far ahead

and since you got Zulaport Cutthroat , why not add Blood Artist and Cruel Celebrant ?
