Oath of Kaya Discussion

I am very not savvy when it comes to deck arch-types and the meta in general, but there is a deck that I am frequently running into which I just cannot seem to beat. Maybe Esper control?

It runs Doom Foretold <<< I hate that damn card. Oath of Kaya Dance of the Manse some Omens and some planeswalkers, probably Kaya's Wrath.

I just can't get past this damn thing...

My best reccomendations for improving the performance of the deck is to add in more hand disruption such as Thoughtseize and Agonizing Remorse to handle answers for your threats.

I think Mogis, God of Slaughter is a really good idea to pair with your Spectacle cards, and you might want to consider an extra copy.

I'm personally not a fan of Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Forgeborn Oreads since they don't provide very much board presence and are very slow. I'd reccomend maybe replacing them with versatile damage options such as Shock and Lightning Strike.

I like Oath of Kaya but if it is in your deck you should look into putting in more planeswalkers such as Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Chandra, Fire Artisan and Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

The deck is super sweet as it is but I think there's potential for it to become something especially good!

I'm having difficulty recommending something for your deck. I generally don't play superfriends outside of commander, and even then my deck has an artifact focused sub-theme. I think it certainly is an interesting concept, but I can't see how consistent it really is. That's about the only way I can see improving it. Drop some of the Walkers who you find aren't that helpful, maybe bump up a copy or two of the ones you find essential. I also think dropping Umori and adding a couple Oath of Kaya and some other spells might help.

Seraphim7 on Aminatou, Gone And Back Again

Excellent deck! A few notes: Ashiok, Nightmare Muse is an excellent piece in any Aminatou deck. He also grants synergy with the Oaths you're running. If you have the budget for it, I would also add Venser, the Sojourner and Kaya, Ghost Assassin. I would also add Oath of Kaya and Oath of Gideon to complete the set.

Disposal-wise, you can't get much better than Act of Authority. Remember that Aminatou can target any permanent you own, not just control.

Anyway, good luck!

Great job! I am a big fan of lifegain decks, and this is really good! I see you've got some Gideon's Company in there, which many people who do lifegain don't know about. I don't really see why Alseid of Life's Bounty is in there besides the one-drop lifelink deal because there are no enchantments to protect. You could replace one or two Alseids with some more Healer's Hawks. But if you want to keep your Aleids to protect enchantments, maybe try Oath of Kaya, which is okay because of the Orzhov colors and some lifegain. It would be best on the sideboard. Sorin's Thirst is pretty good as a sideboard card as well. Here's my idea for your sideboard:

2x Sorin's Thirst. 2x Oath of Kaya. 1x Kaya's Wrath. 2x Healer's Hawk. Maybe even some Banehounds!

So, finally, great job on the deck. You can put all my tweaks in the sideboard if you like, or even replace some maindeck cards. Great Job, 0riginal

I would wait to buy until after next Monday, as there will be a banned and restricted announcement that might hit Dig Through Time. Other than that, operating under the assumption that the B&R kills Inverter this deck or something very close to it seems like it might be pretty awesome against the creature heavy aggro plans and the newer greedy decks like Green Devotion and Heliod Devotion. I will say that you probably want main deck 4 Thoughtseize, 3-4 Censor, and 3-4 Absorb to try and do something about the tomfoolery that has dictated the format thus far. As a side note, Liliana, the Last Hope is a really good card and your win condition, dont be afraid to run more of her and less of Opt or Oath of Kaya.

I like the deck. However, I would change out Savvy Hunter. The card doesn't seem to do enough, even with making the food (you already have goose if you need an engine, and it doesn't require you to attack or block with it). I would suggest more removal in it's place, be it Banishing Light, Mortify, or Oath of Kaya. Best of luck and happy brewing!

Personally I would run 4-6 board wipes in the main board. I don't play much Best-of-3 so maybe my view is skewed, but I would put 4-6 copies of some combination of Kaya's Wrath Ritual of Soot and Shatter the Sky. The advantage to Ritual of soot is that it does't kill your Dream Trawler.

I would take out Oath of Kaya What's the point in punishing people for attacking your plainswalkers if everyone is already dead for having thought about it?

I might look at 1-2 Absorb's to go, but I guess it depends on how it plays.
