Nice deck! I've occasionally considered turning my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas deck into full Sigarda, Host of Herons Voltron.

Have you ever used Concerted Effort ? I like to run it in my Voltron builds so my board can benefit from any of the keywords on the Auras I have out.

Each player discards their hand, then choses one:

  • They draw cards equal to the greatest power among creatures they control.

  • They draw a card for each creature they control.

Create the Pyleas (see Siona, Captain of the Pyleas ).

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.

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.
