Holy Mantle Discussion

irish_trunks on Sigarda, Voltron Lives

I also run a Sigarda voltron deck and it's one of my favorites and definitely one of my more tuned decks. I can't recommend enough running Eldrazi Conscription, Hall of Heliod's Generosity as well as protection from creatures auras like Holy Mantle & Spirit Mantle.

Cool deck, awesome, I'm just here to recommend that you switch the name to "Sionauras," because that would be beautiful.

Also, some nice nice auras include Angelic Destiny, Face of Divinity, Felidar Umbra (yes, it DOES trigger Siona's ability!), Gift of Immortality, Holy Mantle, Sentinel's Eyes, Sigil of the Nayan Gods, Spirit Mantle, and Verdant Embrace. Worth considering, if not putting any of them in.

Battle Mastery has always seemed like a good aura card to me for that double strike.

Holy Mantle and Unquestioned Authority gives your commander protection from creatures which does make it pretty much unblockable

Barbarian_Sun_Pope on Eight and a half Teysa

Appears you'd want to win with either life drain and/or swinging with Teysa. keeping that in mind I would suggest adding some card draw. Black has some decent cheap card draw such as Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, or Read the Bones. The life drain in your deck should offset any life you pay for the draw. Speaking of life drain, Souls of the Faultless should deter your opponent from attacking and stall until you get Teysa on the field. It also works nicely with Deathbringer Liege and reveilark.

If you don't feel like waiting for Teysa, I would suggest Holy Mantle, Spirit Mantle, or Spare from Evil to give Teysa like protection to other creatures. After you land Teysa, you can clone her with Helm of the Host for even more ways to abuse Teysa (or any other creature in your deck). Hope this helps.

lukewulf, I never did think of Battle Mastery, so thanks for the suggestion. I went ahead and swapped it in over the Illusionary Armors.

While Sage's Reverie is a great card, I feel it doesn't work too well in this strategy. For one, I try to deal just enough damage to kill opponent (unless I'm backed against a wall and will lose next turn), so me pouring all of my aura's onto Harold is very rare, so the Reverie would be very ineffective there. Second, card advantage is actually a downside as I really just want to hit my two creatures and dump everything into the yard for Harold to recur.

And I did consider Spectra Ward when I was first building this deck, but it's basically a Holy Mantle on steroid, but also four times the price. The prot all colors is amazing, and I did like it in the prototype I made, but I really just need unblockable, and the power increase is the same so Holy Mantle does what I need it to.

Thank you for the suggestions, and seriously Battle Mastery is crazy, I really appreciate that one.

You've convinced me to use Blessed Alliance! And, on top of what you said, Blessed Alliance is a white mana card! How about Haze of Pollen as a card that is useful as a sort of protection card that can stall the opponent until I get enough mana if I don't have the advantage with mana, and, plus, it is using some green mana which I need cards to use (the only green card I have is Pride Sovereign)? And, if I have two Pride Sovereigns exerted, or if I need time to use Anointed Procession and then cast whatever spells afterward, the Haze of Pollen will work nicely with the turn advantage. But, Holy Mantle is persistent, while Brave the Elements and other protection cards are only one-turn instants, even Haze of Pollen. And, the mana cost for Holy Mantle is a problem.

Out of all of the protection cards Holy Mantle and Brave the Elements seem the best. The only problem is that Brave the Elements won't work for Pride Sovereign. I wish that Pride Sovereign were white, then I would have my entire deck as white! Plus, Brave the Elements out of all of those cards is affecting all creatures that are white that I have rather than an instant that works with only one creature at a time. However, Haze of Pollen is like these cards, but costing only two mana, and on top of that it protects all creatures from attacking no matter their color or what-have-you.

If I shouldn't play Oketra the True , what card do you recommend that is just as good or better? I need a heavy-hitter in my deck that is cheap in mana (specifically white so that Oketra's Monument works with it) and powerful enough to be a game breaker!

Hynx on $5 Vampire Conquistadors

have you ever considered Eland Umbra for more important creatures that could be removed from a quick Shock Spell or creature ability, or even a kill card? this would be particularly handy for Vicious Conquistador Legion Lieutenant or Duskborne Skymarcher in your deck. Holy Mantle is another option, and is a great work around for chump blocking, but more expensive mana wise
