Siona, Captain of the Pyleas Discussion

Caerwyn on Will Other Players Judge Me …

  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).

I'd focus on enchantment ramp (à la Wild Growth, Wolfwillow Haven, Overgrowth and Sheltered Aerie) over the artifact ramp and things like Rampant Growth. This could be supplemented with things like Arbor Elf, Voyaging Satyr and Blossom Dryad.

To my mind, if things like Ancestral Mask, Soul's Majesty and Rishkar's Expertise are working out, it's because you're already winning. I'd rather run things like Gryff's Boon, Messenger's Speed and Madcap Skills - I'd also work on reducing the overall CMC of your enchantments.

I'd switch Winds of Rath out for Gravitic Punch.

I'd also think about adding something else you can win with (if Uril becomes uncastable or is otherwise removed). Fleecemane Lion could carry a handful of aura's. Alternatively, Siona, Captain of the Pyleas + Shielded by Faith with Emblem of the Warmind or Fires of Yavimaya.

If you're running Shielded by Faith, I'd run Siona, Captain of the Pyleas too (for the combo).

If you're running Bear Umbra, I'd probably run Hellkite Charger too (for the combo).

I'd cut Brave the Sands, and AEther Web as they don't offer relevant evasion for Messenger's Speed, and Madcap Skills. I'd cut Runes of the Deus and Eldrazi Conscription as they're too expensive for Setessan Training and Angelic Gift.

I'd also consider replacing Three Dreams and Winds of Rath with Gravitic Punch and Chandra's Ignition.

The +1 of Garruk Wildspeaker (alongside all the Enchantresses) makes me think you should run more things like Trace of Abundance (rather than things like Darksteel Ingot), but they don't play well with Realm Razer.

Things like Escape Velocity, Talons of Wildwood and Gryff's Boon help you rebuild after a boardwipe.
