Spirit of the Hearth
Creature — Cat Spirit
You can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.
Spirit of the Hearth Discussion
2 weeks ago
If you're looking to make this decent in Modern you'll have to bring the cmc down a little bit. unfortunately, Raksha Golden Cub is too slow for modern, seeing as you won't be able to get its effect before turn 8 at the earliest. Here are my recommendations -
Raksha Golden Cub - too expensive
Spirit of the Hearth - could be a sideboard card, still probably too expensive
Bond of Discipline - other cheaper options
Godsend - not useful without raksha
Ancestral Blade - not useful without raksha
Pride Guardian - Defender really goes against your plan here, and I feel like the only reason it's in the deck is because of the life gain
Cards to add:
Leonin Vanguard - gains life every turn for your pridemate, good if you have multiple creatures
Path to Exile - a modern removal staple
Brimaz is already in your maybe board, he's a monster
Sacred Cat - this coooould be an option, but it's pretty weak.
Leonin Arbiter - pairs nicely with path, slows many decks down.
Metallic Mimic - does this count or is this cheating?
Adaptive Automaton - same as above

I've yet to find a solid replacement for Shalai, Voice of Plenty . There are cards that protect your permanents and cards that protect you but generally not both. Leyline of Sanctity gives you hexproof, but not your stuff. Same with Spirit of the Hearth . Ivory Mask is pseudo-shroud. True Believer is cheaper, both are less useful than hexproof. Along those lines Amulet of Safekeeping doesn't give hexproof, but it'll probably keep you from being targeted arbitrarily in multiplayer from its tax, and it also slightly debuffs tokens. Didn't work well for me when I tried it but it was a neat idea. Maybe could be sideboarded in against people who like to spawn tons of 1/1 ankle-biters? idk
Consider Avacyn, Angel of Hope to defend your permanents. It's not hexproof, but destruction is the most common type of removal and she prevents that.

Suggestions for fun stuff:
- Catastrophe is a super-fun board wipe, especially if you want to go the land destruction/threatened land destruction route. Play of the Game is also maybe a good idea in a multiplayer setting.
- To protect yourself from mean opponents who hate fun, I could suggest Spirit of the Hearth, Leyline of Sanctity, Seht's Tiger...
- More O-Ring effects could be fun, so maybe Admonition Angel could be worth a look.
- Also, in lieu of Moat, maybe Magus of the Moat and, in that same vein, Magus of the Tabernacle could help to ensure that people don't mess with you (too much).
- In terms of Planeswalkers, the only one I can think of that might be useful is Elspeth Tirel, largely because she resets the board quite a bit and provides protection (plus, she's not the huge target that Elspeth, Knight-Errant or Elspeth, Sun's Champion are).

With Spirit of the Hearth (and any other spell or permanent) "you" refers to its controller, not necessarily its owner.

Sorry if Leyline of Sanctity it is a bit expensive its the first thing that comes to mind. Other cards that may work in its place might be Aegis of the Gods, Orbs of Warding, Witchbane Orb (one of which I have and has proved useful in occasion, especially in edh), and Spirit of the Hearth. unfortunately these only give you hex-proof so non targeted pings will still hit you. I am still looking for a good way of preventing this but I hope these help for now.

Looks really solid. Heres a few cards to consider: Buried Ruin and Steelshaper's Gift for the artifact suite, Lightning Greaves and Basilisk Collar, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Godsend, Masterwork of Ingenuity, Stoneforge Masterwork, Darksteel Citadel, Mox Opal, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, and Spirit of the Hearth. +1!
