The vows are nice but targets can still block your creatures. Bloodthirsty Blade, Martial Impetus, Psychic Impetus and Predatory Impetus instead? I hate Vow of Duty unless its on my guys.

Necropolis is an old fun card. Wall of Junk can be recast for card draw.

Have you considered the following:

Dryad of the Ilysian Grove as a direct replacement for Chromatic Lantern.

Nomad Mythmaker for aura recursion.

Herald of the Pantheon and Starfield Mystic for enchantment cost lowering.

Unbridled Growth and Abundant Growth for cheaper Land Optimization and draw early game.

Seal of Cleansing as a removal option.

Courser of Kruphix as a way to filter lands off your top deck (and is an enchantment itself).

Spectral Grasp, Vow of Duty, Vow of Malice for protecting yourself from Karona.

Fists of the Demigod, and Edge of Divinity as other voltron pieces?

Also phenomenal cards are already in here but was just curious if you'd seen or added any of the above?

Some other good group hug cards are Jace Beleren , Victory Chimes , Minds Aglow and Death by Dragons .

More pillowfort style cards; Web of Inertia , Smoke and Mystic Barrier

The vow cycle; Vow of Lightning , Vow of Duty , etc are great for incentivizing people to attack and attack someone other than you.

Hey, I see why you're confused if you're going in the right direction because your deck is kind of all over the place. There's lots of good cards here, but I think you can reduce the themes and streamline the strategies.

Consider increasing the pillowfort theme? Increasing the token theme? Decreasing the combat themes (first strike), equipment theme and politics themes? In my opinion combining pillowfort and token strategies are the only themes you really need because both these themes require a lot of setup and they both strengthen each other. If you add other themes to these two all they will do is disrupt the ability to pillowfort.

Consider Luminarch Ascension ? It's a good win condition mana sink for pillowfort and token strategies. With three opponents it can activate fast. Windborn Muse is an upgrade for Baird, Steward of Argive . Consider Aura of Silence ? It's good opponent disruption making it more difficult for them to cast mana efficient artifacts and enchantments.

Other than Sun Titan you're not playing reanimation strategies. Consider Rest in Peace or Containment Priest ? Peace is more expensive price, but it affects everything. Consider Knight of the White Orchid ? It's a great card for land ramp in white especially since you're playing Plains Shock lands and Mistveil.

Depending on the budget of cards you want to add, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Ethersworn Canonist , Twilight Prophet and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are good here, but they're all expensive price. Elesh or Elspeth are an upgrade for Teysa. Both Elesh and Elspeth are very good finishers for tokens. Canonist shuts down some decks and Prophet in combination with a token strategy, getting the city's blessing fast, can give you lots of value.

Consider Kher Keep ? A repeatable way to make tokens that's a land; make a blocker at instant speed. Bitterblossom or the less expensive price, but much worse Dreadhorde Invasion are other good repeatable sources of token. Ophiomancer can be a repeatable source at each upkeep of a token that has deathtouch making it a good blocker on each of your opponent's turns.

Wrath of God as well Day of Judgment or the more expensive price Damnation or Toxic Deluge are cards to consider adding. Board wipes are good with pillowfort and the token strategies since tokens are being made from repeatable sources. Cursed Totem or the more expensive price Linvala, Keeper of Silence is opponent creature disruption since you're not relying on your creatures activated abilities only their ETB or static abilities.


Cards to consider cutting:

If you like some of these suggestions I offer more advice about why I think these cards can be cut. Good luck with your deck.

How about you include Vow of Flight and Vow of Duty as well as Curse of Verbosity and Curse of Vitality to get your opponents to target each other

Vow of Duty If I enchant an opponent's creature, can it not attack me or is it that it can't attack my opponent?
