Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

Legendary Creature — Human Soldier

When Siona, Captain of the Pyleas enters the battlefield, look at the top seven cards of your library. You may reveal an Aura card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Whenever an Aura you control becomes attached to a creature you control, create a 1/1 white Human Soldier creature token.

It's really funny you say that! The two decks I have, which I usually play with my GF are Siona, Captain of the Pyleas with an emphasis on token production, and partners Eligeth, Crossroads Augur + Siani, Eye of the Storm with an emphasis on flying and scrying!

Indestrutible Auras like Shielded by Faith are great with Uril, why do you only run one? also shouldn't Siona, Captain of the Pyleas be under your win section?

This looks really impressive, great deck! It's a shame Uril is 15 bucks, otherwise I'd really like to build around him.

A card I can suggest that I included in my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is Gargos, Vicious Watcher . He's somewgat of an echantress itself in that it can kill a creature whenever you enchant any of your creautures.

Working on the card draw and acquisition:

Sram, Senior Edificer

Kor Spiritdancer

Argothian Enchantress

Season of Growth

Setessan Champion

Armored Skyhunter

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

End game requires consideration of going going long or wide:

If wide, switch commander to Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and include cards like Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Flickering Ward, Spirit Loop, Rancor, Fortitude, Whip Silk,Auratog, Thaumatog.

If long, add better protection enchantments. Suggestions include, Holy Mantle, Alseid of Life's Bounty, Spirit Mantle, Gift of Immortality, Umbra Mystic, Unquestioned Authority, Spectra Ward.

Siona would be my push because she adds combo lethality. Sythis is just a great 99 imo.

Shouldn’t forget, All That Glitters, Shield of the Oversoul, Gryff's Boon, Helm of the Gods, and Ancestral Mask

Thank you, AkaAkuma. This deck is special to me, and I'm glad you like it.

Knight of Autumn would be on the list if it were on theme. Its pretty perfect for a more typical Tayam deck, which has gotten some spicy new cards since I built Tayam, but my theme requirement lead me down other paths. Dreadhorde Invasion was in my original pile of potential cards for the deck, but it never made the cut. I ended up favoring enchantment creatures over a once per turn token creator, simply because I wanted more immediate payoff.

Pairing Teysa, Orzhov Scion with Siona, Captain of the Pyleas initially happened because I wanted to trigger Siona with Screams from Within to get endless constellation triggers (I will eventually find a way to fit the card in, but I ended up not being able to find my copy of the card for a long tome and had the deck built before I found it). Thinking about other cards with black that might want white tokens lead me to Teysa.

I still need to make changes to add in some modern horizons 2 cards.

As for how it plays, if you don't find a combo early, it can sit back and defend fairly effectively, and this is when the deck is most enjoyable to play. I like having tools in my graveyard and counters to pay Tayam's cost, and then react to other players trying to do their thing, and I love being able to activate Tayam without telling anyone what I'm bringing back. Seeing the same pile of cards is a given, but no 2 games are the same.

Gleeock: I actually did some playtesting yesterday (with four times myself...times are rough) will a pod of the following decks of mine (all of which are uploaded here in more or less updated state):

Lurrus of the Dream-Den eggs/aristocrats

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

Moraug, Fury of Akoum

And finally my above Thantis. While Lurrus basically annihilated the table including the floor beneath it, the way Thantis played out was exactly like you described: It put out some major threats and would have had a pretty big influence if any of it could have kept any of the three boards it build (as I said, Lurrus went totally nuts, also Moraug had to double-wipe before and after Siona went off on turn 5...).

So, the most popular two card competitive g/w enchantment combos are the following, all of which are powerful on their own, but win w/ combat on the following turn or with another effect, such as Altar of the Brood , or in another way.

They are: Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience , Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft , and Parallax Wave + Opalescence

Other options are Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista , Siona, Captain of the Pyleas + Shielded by Faith !
