UpsetYoMama on For Honor and Glory...but Mostly Just for Blood

Hey DespairFaction, thanks for the suggestions! I'll go through and address each one quickly:

  1. I'm not really a fan of Mask of Memory, as you have to connect to draw.
  2. Skullclamp should definitely be in the deck, I agree. I had it in here at one point, but then took it out because I had taken some token generators out (i.e. Assemble the Legion). Since the addition of Monastery Mentor, clamp deserves a slot.
  3. People in my meta do play lots of board wipes, which is why I really like Sword of Light and Shadow. It also dodges the best spot removal with the pro white and black. Fliers are often most common in those colors, and I don't want to get chumped.
  4. Sword of Fire and Ice is obviously a good value card and I will consider it. I've never really liked Sword of War and Peace as I feel it's the most variable of the Swords. It also negates Boros Charm double strike (although some of the others swords do, as well).
  5. Conqueror's Flail is one I hadn't considered before, and it looks awesome. Dragonlord Dromoka is a powerhouse and having that effect on an artifact I can tutor is sick. One of the biggest problems I have is if someone counters Aurelia, obviously.
  6. I had Spirit of the Labyrinth in here and it was underwhelming. It also makes Wheel of Fortune a dead card in hand.
  7. Armageddon seems much more efficient to me than Cataclysm, but if I wanted another effect I've considered running Cataclysmic Gearhulk instead. The main thing I don't like about the cards is that they wipe my mana rocks. With Armageddon and multiple mana rocks, I can often still cast spells.
  8. Insurrection is very slow for this deck, and if it's countered, I'm in big trouble. I aim to win far before that with commander damage. It's also contingent on board state and can be a dead card in hand, so I'm not a fan.
  9. I tried Tajic, Blade of the Legion and cut him almost immediately. He usually ends up being a vanilla beater with an upside that isn't worth the mana investment.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'm trying to make Aurelia as competitive as possible :)

Hey Im a long time Aurelia player. Here are a few suggestions for you. let me know what you think.

Mask of Memory and Skullclamp for more card draw. Sword of Light and Shadow is one of my least favorite of the cycle. However it can be good if you are running into a lot of board wipes, so just pay attention to how it is performing for you. Sword of Fire and Ice is awesome, but pricey. Sword of War and Peace is good for that blue player that likes draw a million cards. Conqueror's Flail looks awesome if you are facing counterspells. Spirit of the Labyrinth is great prison effect against a lot of people. Since you are not opposed to land destruction Cataclysm is great against decks that are trying to go too big or not commit threats to the board. Insurrection with Aurelia usually ends the game. Tajic, Blade of the Legion is good if you're on the token plan. Theres probably a ton more suggestions that I could make, but that seems good for now. enjoy!

Fair enough I suppose, though I personally feel like they released enough discard synergy to warrant the splash even if Mobilized for War isn't the commander.

On another note since you're already running Vampire Hexmage and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Have you considered running the Dark Depths and Thespian's Stage combo? With both Hexmage and Stage that doubles your chances of getting the token and even if it doesn't pan out for some reason, Urborg would allow it to still be of use.

Also have you put any thought into running a more flushed out equipment package? Olivia is the type of creature that can get out of control really quickly and your opponent's are going to want to kill her fast. So the protection and extra value cards like Sword of Body and Mind, Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace can grant you would make her quite formidable. Also Darksteel Plate is also an option for more budgeted decks.

Sram, Senior Edificer has a similar ability to Puresteel Paladin, but it also triggers from auras. more draw more better.

I play in a blue heavy meta, and in most of those blue decks there's minimal recursion, with exception to a mimeoplasm player. which is why Sword of Body and Mind does so well, the token doesn't hurt either.

as for Sword of War and Peace, I save that for kill swings or alpha strikes after a wheel or open the vaults. I can see your point about not being able to effectively interacting with whatever equips it, but I think it's a fair trade off in the late game atleast.
