I'm keeping all these suggestions on low budget

For this commander, I like prison-type auras. You have a few but here are some others: Prison Term , Spectral Grasp . Faith's Fetters , Darksteel Mutation

To recycle your auras using your commander you could use a janky fun sac outlet: Auratog

Gift of Immortality can keep your guys coming back and is cheap.

Sun Titan can bring back almost everything in your deck and is pretty on-budget. Sun titan with a totem armor such as Hyena Umbra and Felidar Umbra is hard to deal with.

Eidolon of Countless Battles seems good for this deck.

Prison Term for the highest per capita incarceration rate?

SaberTech on Karona, The Pillow Enchantress

Hi, I'm just dropping in after seeing the link you left on your twitter page.

If you are looking for just 4 cards to remove, I think that Clout of the Dominus , Graceblade Artisan , Norn's Annex , and Celestial Mantle would be the first cards I would look at potentially removing.

Looking at the deck, I'm assuming that the general game plan is to fort up and let Karona get passed around the table with the hope that your opponents will swing at each other with it. If I've got that right, then plan B appears to be suiting up Bruna or Uril and smashing face. Maybe I have the priority of the two plans reversed.

That being said, I think that there are a few things to consider. Celestial Mantle and Unflinching Courage work well on creatures you control, like Uril, but aren't cards that you would want on Karona as she is being passed around the table. The Mantle gives life to the enchanted creature's CONTROLLER, and Unflinching Courage gives lifelink to the creature so Karona's controller would also be the one gaining life. For your deck Unflinching Courage in a drastically inferior version of the Armadillo Cloak you also run because the Cloak's triggered life gain effect will always give YOU the life instead of Karona's controller. It's an important difference that is worth looking at when refining your selection of auras.

Aside from that, I think that Clout of the Dominus isn't the best choice in the deck. The fact that it gives shroud is counter-intuitive to a voltron strategy.

If you decide to take Celestial Mantle out, maybe it would be worth considering running Pollenbright Wings ? If you put it on Karona it will always give you the tokens, not Karona's controller, which can help give you an army of saprolings that you can then boost with Karona's ability when it gets back to your turn.

Of course, that all depends on people actually choosing to attack with Karona. Since you are already running pillowfort cards, I think that it is worth running cards like Fumiko the Lowblood that force your opponents to attack. The rules say that even if you have a Propaganda in play, opponents still have to attack someone to meet the requirement. They can't just choose you, decide not to pay to attack, and claim that their attack has been negated. If they don't pay to attack you then they have to attack someone else if possible. It's a useful way to get your opponents to whittle themselves down and to limit the use that they can get out of their utility creatures.

The deck has a number of ways to try to handle your opponents' cards, but you are pretty reliant on Anguished Unmaking and Merciless Eviction to permanently deal with opponents' utility creatures. Everything else you have either bounces or just prevents those creatures from attacking you. It might be worth looking at cards like Prison Term and Darksteel Mutation as more effective enchantment-based removal options that you can search up with your enchantment tutor cards if you need them. Winds of Rath is also useful for helping to clear the board while leaving your enchanted creatures untouched.

I don't know how much of that helps with the direction you are currently looking to take the deck, but I hope that it gave you some ideas.

emlit thanks for the suggestions! I really like Angelic Destiny , as it helps with devotion for Iroas and it is recurable. If Baneslayer Angel wasn't as expensive I'd consider it haha but maybe after some testing I might have to splurge on it. Legion's Initiative is one I was looking at originally but cut for some other random enchantments so I might have to test with it. I like cards like Prison Term ...just not that it makes everyone paint you as a target haha

I run an Aureila build (Cardolan) which is geared a bit differently, but here are some suggestions which work well for me in Boros:

Angelic Destiny - Make anything an immediate threat; the recursion is ridiculous

Baneslayer Angel - Unfairly good, if you want to spend the money for her

Legion's Initiative - Great defense against board wipes

Prison Term - Underutilized card in EDH, but a real beast; use on Commanders to make people hate you

Cage of Hands , Faith's Fetters , Prison Term for aura based removal... I have always like Mystic Restraints but I’m biased towards it
