Gidgetimer on Do Weathered Bodyguards protect planeswalkers?

Whatever videos you saw where someone said they were attacking the player and redirecting the damage to the Planeswalker were wrong. You have always attacked planeswalkers directly and as such Weathered Bodyguards will not redirect the damage to itself.

Non-combat damage to a player used to be able to be redirected to planeswalkers that the player controlled, but they changed that rule a few years ago and now you target planeswalkers directly so Pariah won't redirect a lightning bolt aimed at a planeswalker.

If Weathered Bodyguards is untapped when an opponent attempts to attack a planeswalker I control, will WB protect my planeswalker as well? I'm asking because I've seen a couple videos of games where people bring up the fact that they're technically attacking the player and then redirecting the damage to the planeswalker. I'm wondering if the card will force them to redirect it to the creature instead.

Both Weathered Bodyguards and Pariah use replacement effects to redirect damage. Since you control both permanents, and both replacement effects modify the same thing (roughly; Weathered Bodyguards only affects unblocked damage, while Pariah will be able to affect trample damage too), you would be the affected player and choose which replacement effect to apply. Any leftover replacement effects that can't apply have no effect.

So you can choose to send that 10 unblocked damage to either Weathered Bodyguards or Seraph of the Sword , as you see fit.

If your opponent attacks with something with trample, though, and you do block it but some damage still gets through, you wouldn't be able to send that to Weathered Bodyguards and would have to send it at your Seraph of the Sword .

If I have Weathered Bodyguards and Seraph of the Sword enchanted with Pariah in play and I let through 10 combat damage, do both creatures get dealt 10 damage, do I get to choose which is dealt the damage, or does something else happen?

I know you're going for Angel tribal, which I admire a lot (I had an Avacyn angel deck for a long time--list is here.) But I would consider dropping some of these higher-cost angels like Reya Dawnbringer and your Brisela pair for creatures that synergize well with Avacyn like Veteran Bodyguard and Weathered Bodyguards.
