Shielded by Faith Discussion

kurban1213 on Angels, Dragons, and Demons..OH MY!

The main comment I have is that the deck seems a tad creature heavy. I understand the point is to sneak out creatures and have them do their thing, but protecting Kaalia is important for that to work. I would suggest swapping out some creatures for protection Mother of Runes , Nahiri's Machinations , Shielded by Faith , and Flawless Maneuver all give either a single creature (like Kaalia) or all creatures some protection. Also, a board wipe like Austere Command can give you a choice to destroy creatures with power 3 or less, which might be something that can wipe other boards and maybe keep yours a bit more intact for an advantage. Other cards to consider that are just plain good in this deck:

Gamble and Sneak Attack additionally let you find cards you need and then sneak them onto the battlefield without needing Kaalia!

Zirilan of the Claw may be worth considering before it becomes totally priced out of the water (RL cards are spiking like crazy right now)

And in my Kaalia deck I run three mana altering cards Conversion , Blood Moon , and Sunglasses of Urza in hopes that I can alter everyone's mana to benefit me. Of course you have to know the order of how these cards resolve, like if you have Conversion and Blood Moon in play, all non-basic lands are still mountains and Conversion is essentially dead. Also, playing Conversion then Sunglasses allows me to change all mountains to plains AND then still be able to use that white mana as red (and its only in my pool, still messing up mountains for my opponents). Also, one last card while on the topic of mana, Mana Flare is also super powerful in this deck because of the obvious need for lots of mana in the event you can't cheat out your big beaters. It gives your opponents mana too, but hopefully it would benefit you the most.

Why exactly is Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder in tier 1? Just for Partner colors? If so, why is Akiri, Line-Slinger much lower?

Seeing Roon of the Hidden Realm above Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Amareth, the Lustrous, and in the same tier as Tuvasa the Sunlit strikes me as odd. Is there some secret tech that pulls Roon out of tier 4(casual)?

I'm surprised that Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is "only" tier 3, considering the 2 card combo with Shielded by Faith. I suppose it is because GW doesn't offer a lot of consistency for it?

Liesa, Shroud of Dusk still needs to be added. Probably goes right next to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Almost exactly the same 99. Her tax effect also hits creatures, but she costs more mana in exchange and isn't one-sided, so it evens out.

I have thought about Sterling Grove and may add it later. Kaldheim may have some good auras so when the set drops I'll see if it shakes things up enough to look at the auras again and include Grove. I cut Idyllic Tutor as Enlightened seemed enough considering the card draw in the deck

As for not having Shielded by Faith, I have 2 cards that provide indestructible as well as 2 cards that give totem armor so I feel like that is more than enough in my meta. Plus I consider Gift of Immortality strictly better since the aura itself can reattach itself to Jared.

Mage Slayer is indeed an awesome option but I just don't have room for it. All other choices are simply what works in my meta.

Might I suggest Mage Slayer. It's too fun to equip it to Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and hit for 10 to the face, another 10 if they don't have a flyer.

Also, I don't see Idyllic Tutor or Sterling Grove. Any reason why not seeing as they both can grab 25% of the deck.

Bastion Protector and Aegis Angel are fun ways to protect Jared Carthalion, True Heir.

Sigarda, Heron's Grace is sweet, as well as working in tangent creating ways to reuse Knight-Captain of Eos to help protect Monarch.

No Shielded by Faith? You are already running the other half of the combo in Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. Not to mention it also works well with Jared and Pariah pretty much making your life untouchable.

I forgot Ancient Den as another indestructible land. Also, how about Shielded by Faith and Timely Ward?

Shielded by Faith to make your attacker less vulnerable? Same with Hammer of Nazahn. And with the Double Strike, Quietus Spike seems pretty useful.

Great looking deck. As far as advice goes, I can suggest that you should definitely include Champion's Helm, and Loxodon Warhammer would also work nicely. Also, Timely Ward may be somewhat better than Shielded by Faith since it only requires one white mana. But overall, I like this deck!

Designing a Siona, Captain of the Pyleas combo deck utilizing siona + Shielded by Faith as the main combo and Sun Titan + Gift of Immortality + sac outlet and Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista as supporting combos. I have already cut around 10 cards but I still have an extra 15 cards and I am a not usre what to remove. Advice will be appreciated.
