Based on a question to MaRo about why the oath cycle doesn't have subtypes. (Yeah, this name sounds more like a creature, but whatever.)

I feel like there would need to be higher density of Oaths for them to warrant cards that interacted with them specifically. Also, why the color pie break? Just because there's no black Oath?

Shit, I forgot I changed it to destroy an enchantment. Even before I saw MaRo's ask, I was thinking of an actually black oath that on ETB destroyed a Planeswalker and also had this second ability. Not sure what misfired in my head when I decided that destroying the oath was mechanically equivalent. You're right this is super niche, so I guess I'll change it back.

Changed from destroying an Oath to destroying a Planeswalker

Changed flavor too; originally named Oathbreaker

Still niche, but in a way that would make it viable in sideboards.
