Alliance of Arms

Probably going to be laughed off, but could this see play at all in Oath as a method of giving your opponents creatures?  Would then require a way for you to break the symmetry by killing/using one of your own tokens - but Skullclamp comes to mind.  I guess too much work involved when you could simply use an Orchard.

I keep reading the card to make sure I'm not missing something. Can't you just pay zero to not get any tokens? Can't your opponent do the same?

Does this card actually do nothing at all for Oath?

I see. I did misread the card. Sorry about that. I'm still not sure it's good enough when you can just use Orchard and only give your opponent tokens. Was Oath really looking for another way to activate?

I think this old card does everything the new card does, but 10 times better.

1. You don't have to pay 2 to give the opponent at least 1 token.
2. It's an instant.
3. You can do it on yourself if you really have to (kill a Confidant/Welder)
4. You get to remove a card in a graveyard.
5. You don't have to break symmetry.

Nuff said.
