Politics with Mathas Could use some help figuring out some good political cards in Mardu.

This deck is built to be a very political deck with a subtheme of Pillowfort. Lets first take a look at the subtheme.

These cards discourage people from swinging in my direction. Archangel of Tithes, Avacyn, Guardian Angel , Dread , Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, Orzhov Advokist, Ghostly Prison, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze. These will help keep the attention turned away from me hopefully.

Next, the deck utilizes three pretty unique boardwipe effects. Magister of Worth lets players vote for mass reanimation or wipe. Then, there is Coercive Portal, which will either blow up everything or draw me a card. Lastly, Tragic Arrogance for when the board is getting crazy, and I can make deals to allow certain players to keep certain permanents.

It also is packed full of spot removal. I opted for destroy over exile for Mathas triggers. Many of the creatures and spells have ways to destroy something.

The deck is lacking a win condition, but hopefully it will be able to last in a battle of attrition. Looking to be one of the last two alive, then focus the remaining spells and abilities on the last opponent to sneak a win through.

Edit: So after playing some games with it, it does pretty well in my meta. Usually ends up as the last two alive and I can focus all the hate on them to win the game.
