i was planning on taking Telepathy out eventually anyways. I only have it in still because i still dont know what cards to name. It was jsut my way of being able to see the cards so i knew what to name for Nevermore or Gideon's Intervention.

For the decks that i played against would you be able to give me some examples of cards that i would name? They all seemed to be the usual decks you find online.

I am certainly adding Quicksilver Elemental - I completely skimmed over this card; I didn't take into account that it can target itself. I will also add Pili-Pala and Basalt Monolith.

I do have to admit I am not a big fan of infinite combos for the sake of infinite combos. Before anyone points out I am a hypocrite, I like the way Mairsil operates, because whilst the infinite combos are almost inevitable, the deck has a lot of utility and interaction, i.e. it is not a deck you play solitaire with.

That being said, Sage of Hours also works with Phyrexian Devourer (not as an infinite, but one extra turn is pretty dank anyway). Anthroplasm is pretty good even without the Sage of Hours combo - it has quite a lot of potential with Pestilent Souleater.

Although I might add Nim Deathmantle (I didn't add it into the maybeboard T_T), I feel like adding Mindslaver is only really good when wrapped up into that one combo, and mediocre otherwise. Until I'm convinced that there is nothing better to add, I won't add it.

The reason why I want Lightning Greaves is less for the shroud (Mairsil, the Pretender is really hard to kill even without shroud) but more because it is a free source of haste, which is useful with Deadeye Navigator. E.g. Deadeye Navigator + Gilded Lotus on Mairsil + Lightning Greaves is another infinite mana combo.

As an aside... I think this deck looks a lot better on paper than it is in practice. It really, REALLY suffers from having a combination of no creatures on board and not intending to win on turn 4-5. Similarly, smart opponents can work around Mairsil's failsafes - as much as I like to think that Cavern Harpy makes him close to untouchable, since you can only activate the ability once, two opponents dropping removal on him is devastating. And let's face it: this deck has quite literally nothing without Mairsil. I ran a test game (using 95 cards... should add them), where Mairsil got Nevermore'd... Yeah.

Ok, so updated list of what i have:

-have all the Cast Outs

-have all the Sphere of Safetys

-have all the Telepathys

-have all the Path to Exiles

-and finally have all the Journey to Nowheres

I'm still waiting on the rest of the cards. I may replace 1 of the Gideon's Interventions with another sphere as i only 2 so far but found an extra sphere laying around

So i should run W/U? I'd be running Nevermore and Gideon's Intervention no matter what which can get rid of whatever problems i should have.

Karzalar on Sigarda, Host of Budget

Hello to you, fellow Sigarda player!

If i follow what you said correctly, you do have a 71$ budget for upgrades? Let's check, then.

Kor Spiritdancer is another Mesa Enchantress/Verduran/Eidolon for card draw, and can be a win condition herself in case of Sigarda being locked being Commander tax. Argothian Enchantress is awesome, too.

So is Femeref Enchantress, in case someone wipes the board and you lose all your enchantments.

You have NO instants? You need some removal or recursion in that. As far as recursion goes, Faith's Reward is great and Replenish is too.

And for removal, you get some goodies in those colors which can help in flexibility : Beast Within, Swords to Plowshares, Unexpectedly Absent, Dromoka's Command...

Some creatures to consider : Eternal Witness, Dragonlord Dromoka, Heliod's Pilgrim

Some other enchantments to consider :

Darksteel Mutation (removal as an aura, very good against enemy commanders)

Flickering Ward (for repeatable card draw with any enchantress)

Nevermore (to block that pesky Cyclonic Rift/Black Sun's Zenith/Merciless Eviction that can break your game, otherwise just block their commander!)

Ghostly Prison (Another, smaller Sphere of Safety)

Privileged Position (to protect, like Sterling Grove. Plus, if all two are on the battlefield, everything you control is Hexproof!)

Lastly...

The only non-budget suggestion that i GOT to make is :

Serra's Sanctum because tapping it for more than 5 mana is not uncommon...

If you want more suggestions, i'll simply put a shameless promotion of my own take on Sigarda, which is a Stax-type deck - Enchanted! I'm Sigarda, and here's how you die..

Cheers!

Nevermore as previously mentioned is perfect for that. Surgical Extraction or a similar card could work, not as good with just 1 copy in EDH. I agree with landofMordor though, if you run U, definitely consider just simply countering them with like Counterspell or something

lmfao I used to run that Combo in my Sisay deck at Turn Zero.

Honestly, yeah, I agree with SteelSentry. Also cards like Nevermore or Praetor's Grasp or Bribery can also work preemptively. Declaration of Naught and Jester's Cap too.

Desertion is fun if living plane is out and they play Norn HAHA! Had it happen to me and it was AMAZING :D

Bloodweb thanks for the suggestions! Nevermore isn't really a must have, you're right. Now, maybe I'm mistaken, but Fountain Watch isn't Modern legal, so I wouldn't be able to pull off that combo. I also decided to put 2 Greater Auramancy in my sideboard because not all match ups will have enchantment removal. Do you think it deserves a main board slot?
