Vow of Duty Discussion

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?

Hmm when I think of politics I usually just think of insurance that those politics don't backfire, Vow of Duty and Vow of Malice buff opponent's creatures, but keep them from attacking you, Mystic Barrier essentially keeps 2 opponents from attacking you while also doing the same for each of them, you can then use politics to save one opponent from another's large board for favors

Now I do admit I don't know why you have Paradox Engine, the value of your tap effects are not too strong and the engine is too well known that you could probably cast an Armageddon instead and draw about the same heat.

One last suggestion would be to think about Angelic Renewal, it's an awfully neat save a guy enchantment that works really well with Sun Titan and it was just reprinted making it extra easy to find, might even find it foil. (I did say last suggestion, but ran into Helm of Possession when reviewing the comment, what better political way to kill a creature than to simply steal it at instant speed)

Hey, long time no see!

Back with a few suggestions for you.

Why not Nevermore to block the already low-enough cards that could deny you a victory with Sigarda? Name either their commander, or, if they play those colors...

Blue : Cyclonic Rift Black : Merciless Eviction, Black Sun's Zenith White : Descend upon the Sinful

...or any combo piece if you know enough of the mtg possibilities.

Also, Satyr Enchanter is a better Mesa Enchantress, Femeref Enchantress can be good too.

Nylea's Colossus is a big beater with enchantment upsides.

Vow of Wildness doubles up as a pacifism of sorts for the enemy and a nice boost for you, same for Vow of Duty.

Hope you find something you like in those!

Caerwyn on Have a Karona, now kill my enemies!

Here's some suggestions based on my own experience with Voltron Karona:

  • Vow of Duty is pretty useless on Karona as she doesn't really benefit from Vigilence. Run Vow of Wildness instead--Trample is fantastic when you're trying to force through commander damage, and that extra +1/+1 makes a difference.

  • Howling Mine is an incredibly mediocre card. For card draw, I would recommend running enchantresses--Argothian Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, Mesa Enchantress, and Verduran Enchantress are all strong options.

  • Canopy Cover is an interesting little card. Unlike most enchantments, it does not give the creature hexproof. As such, your opponents cannot target Karona when she is under their control, but you can still enchant her. That it adds evasion is just a nice extra touch.

  • Armadillo Cloak gives a nice boost to power, the invaluable trample, and lets you heal whenever Karona attacks.

  • Ethereal Armor is an explosive card, capable of quickly ending games.

  • Sovereigns of Lost Alara is fantastic for tutoring and cheating out auras. It combos quite well with Eldrazi Conscription, another game-ending card.

If you are curious, here is my Voltron Karona deck. It might provide some other ideas:

Quick question--are you looking for suggestions, or is it your intent to just play with your favourite cards?

One minor change I'd highly recommend--cutting Vow of Duty and Vow of Malice. Both provide little benefit when attached to Karona, and there are plenty of more fun cards to take their place. One I'd highly recommend is Armadillo Cloak--you get to gain life whenever Karona attacks, and can even place it on an enemy threat to encourage attacks elsewhere.
