Siona, Captain of the Pyleas Discussion

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.

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.

That's a pretty cool list. Prey Upon seems weird though.

A card I really like in my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is Gargos, Vicious Watcher. You could replace Prey Upon with it to turn all your auras into removal spells.

  1. Generally avoiding one of the Seven Deadly Sins is a good place to start. Personally, I find treating the fairer sex as human beings, rather than objects to be desired, works pretty well. For more information, feel free to check out Jane Austin or similar sources of information.

  2. Those cards are always cited by individuals seeking a justification for objectifying women. I think this argument is flawed in a couple respects. First, and foremost, if those cards were objectifying men, two wrongs do not make a right; it wouldn't change the fact that objectifying women is wrong. Second, I do not think either of these cards really objectify men. They are designed to be sexy characters, but they are not designed to be purely sex objects. Enthralling Victor stands tall and proud, in a natural pose that exudes confidence. Rakish Heir likewise is shown in a moment of victory, covered in the blood of his prey. These are not objects; they're powerful figures who exude power. Siona, Captain of the Pyleas has her legs bare, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain has her middriff exposed... but both are drawn to be individuals in positions of strength; their exposed portions are not to objectify them, but just part of showing their character. Same goes for the Birth of Venus--Venus might be nude, but Botticelli draws Venus with a degree of character and uses the nudity to further define a character that is inexorably intertwined with lust. I'd say your other example was purposefully designed to be provocative, and create a visceral reaction in the viewer, so isn't actually a good example to prove your point.

Again, it seems a lot like you are trying to justify something that 100% of the responses on the thread have said is problematic.

I think a bit of time fiddling is what I need to sort the cuts out. I may end up not making changes, or making lots of changes.

Teysa, Orzhov Scion is actually in the deck more to sacrifice white creature tokens from other sources, mostly Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. I got the idea for this deck because of these 2 cards.

34 lands seems low, and I'm always wary of running the bounce lands alongside that many tap lands. With a budget manabase I'd probably ease off the costs like Mayael's Aria and Naya Charm also.

Rather than Midnight Guard + Elemental Mastery/Presence of Gond I'd run Siona, Captain of the Pyleas for the Shielded by Faith combo (+ Emblem of the Warmind, probably) as the pieces are independently more useful.

I'd also work on reducing your CMCs across the board (particularly if you want to stick to 34 lands). Spellbreaker Behemoth could be Destiny Spinner and Runes of the Deus could be Temur Battle Rage and Winds of Rath could be Gravitic Punch, for example.

Are things like Silence, Gaddock Teeg and Shalai, Voice of Plenty a meta choice? In my experience, Uril benefits most from being able to kill 1 or 2 players as quickly as possible (rather than trying to control the board).
