Divine Bond has received very little direct support since its introduction in the Core Set, perhaps because its base of Dioltas, Ironcliffe Guardian, Aegis Barrier, Azurite Lion etc has left it in a fairly stable and rather established spot or simply it has not been a very interesting deck to design for. Cards like Life Coil and Ironcliffe Heart have done little to advance this archetype. However, a more greedy and less aggro oriented meta has allowed Divine Bond decks to look into options previously not available.
This deck retains the many key cards in Divine Bond from the core set, such as the aforementioned Dioltas and Ironcliffe Guardian for example, and, of course, the obligatory Trinity Oath from the Bloodbound Ancients expansion. The inclusion of Letigress is key in an increasingly number of list these days and Argeon Highmayne is the foremost abuser of this card. Perhaps the only odd choice is Sworn Avenger, but it has its uses. Divine Bond has an awful matchup against most thing Vetruvian and this card can help out, as many Vetruvian decks struggle to remove it pre 5 mana. Also, Divine Bond decks can struggle to remove back line threats, so one can return the favor by establishing the backline threat oneself!
The rest of this list plays like a standard Bond list. If one wants beefier options, like War Exorcist or Inquisitor Kron, cut 1x Oath and 1x Bond for any of those provokers of your choosing. Should one desire even bigger stuff than 5 mana, then the 6 mana slot offer exciting options in Elyx Stormblade, Magesworn and Prominence. Control tools like Aperion’s Claim, EMP and even Lightbender is available, however I dislike running such responsive cards since I try to be ahead and winning, rather than losing. Be proactive and not reactive!
