Orzhov Advokist Discussion

Great looking deck. Some suggestions, I think it would be good to add Windborn Muse, Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and Propaganda to help protect you. Also, more mass removal like Wrath of God, Evacuation and oh my god why isn't Cyclonic Rift in here? Hahaha. Other than that I like the deck. Another suggestion is to make people not want to attack you is Orzhov Advokist.

Having played a political style Mardu deck for a while now, I can say it's a really fun deck style. My easiest answer would be to look up various builds for Queen Marchesa (long may she reign), and modify it for more vampire synergy. She is an amazing commander for politics and Monarchy is such a fun mechanic in EDH. For a few ideas:

Cruel Entertainment
Rite of the Raging Storm
Orzhov Advokist
Capital Punishment
Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs

scrobacca on Karlovation - Taxation is extortion

I also run a Karlov deck, and I've noticed you're missing the same thing I was missing...a way to get past chump blockers. I'd add Loxodon Warhammer, Godsend, or something that can give Karlov some type of evasion (flying, unblockable, etc.) Also, if you'd like to throw in one more way to stop people from attacking you, Koskun Falls is a great card. And a cheap way to get automatic counters on Karlov is Orzhov Advokist Just some ideas.

In addition to what other people mentioned, it's important to not just make people like you, but encourage people to do things other than attack you. I've been in games where people will thank me, but then turn on me later. If you include cards like Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Orzhov Advokist there's extra incentive to attack someone else.

For me a large part of group hug decks is getting political. By this i mean you help out people in exchange for them helping you and helping take out other player you deem scary. You can go beyond that and directly barter with people too. Telling people you will use your Phyrexian Splicer, Duelist's Heritage, or Power Matrix if they attack someone other than you is always nice.

If however you want to stay truly group hug and ignore the political aspect of it, i'd add more ways to directly give people more options with cards like Wishmonger, Intellectual Offering, Benevolent Offering, Sylvan Offering, Collective Voyage, Tempt with Discovery, Tempt with Reflections, Alliance of Arms.

The advocate creatures are also pretty nice. They have a benifit to you (or an oponnt if you feel generous) and return cards from your opponents graveyard back to their hands: Forcemage Advocate, Nullmage Advocate, Pulsemage Advocate, Shieldmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate.

Avacyn, Guardian Angel can also help your opponents or save yourself if needed. (vigilance is also nice cause you can still attack someone if needed)

Forced Fruition is a wierd one (they draw the cards whether they want to or not)

You mentioned in your last comment you said you really enjoy ridiculous decks. While it isnt exactly group hug, Knowledge Pool, Eye of the Storm and Hive Mind fit that description pretty well.

First of all, Sol Ring. Just, Sol Ring.

Temple Bell is a cheap group card draw artifact that can also be used politically by determining when everyone gets to draw.

Orzhov Advokist is a perfect card for the group hug list; everyone else gets to pump their creatures and amplify their game, and you don't get attacked.

Skyscribing can be forecasted every turn for slow advantage, or cast in one go to refill everyone's hands.

Selvala, Explorer Returned ramps you a little and buffers your life total while drawing everyone cards. Neat effect that adds up over time.

Minds Aglow is another card that draws everyone more cards.

Braids, Conjurer Adept lets everyone power out their best cards from their hand every turn, which has the added benefit of getting your pillow fort enchantments online quicker.

Lastly, Kami of the Crescent Moon is another card that stuffs players' hands with cards.
