Reflecting Pool Discussion
5 days ago
Ruric Thar, the Unbowed seems like a good choice for EDH, particularly against those noncreature-heavy control decks that make me want to throw my collection out the door. Into the Roil? That's 6 damage right there, hombre.
One thing I will say is that Cavern of Souls seems oddly out of place in what is clearly not a tribal deck. You could easily substitute it for something like Reflecting Pool and get a reasonably similar mana base for about $50 fewer and put Cavern of Souls in a tribal deck where it could be more useful to you. I understand, you'd be losing the benefit of making sure your commander isn't countered, but given that you won't always be getting Cavern of Souls and you'll want to cast your commander whether you draw it or not, it doesn't seem super important. So it sort of seems to me like a slight misuse of a rather expensive card.
But, then again, I'm talking to a guy who owns Gaea's Cradle, so my views on prices may be slightly different from yours. I'm a piss-poor student and I think I may have enough disposable income to afford Cavern of Souls in 10 years. And when I do get it, it's going in the nearest tribal I can find.

First; you need more lands. With a commander costing 5 mana it wouldn't be vrazy to start around 37 or 38, 33 is waaaaaay too low. Lifelands are terrible. Brushland, Krosan Verge, Wooded Bastion and Reflecting Pool would be neat.
I'm not playing Sigarda myself,but my best friend is. So my ideas are based on his build as well as on my perception of core concepts such as mana efficiency and draw power.
Reduce number of creatures. Sigarda wants to go voltron here and all these don't help that gameplan. Avacyn, Hart, Mirri, Nazahn and Silverblade paladin have no business here. More enchantress effects would be helpful. Manadorks like Birds of Paradise, Arbor Elf, Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic and Avacyn's Pilgrim would be nice. Eidolon of Countless Battles could be fun. Stonehewer Giant or Stoneforge Mystic would be nice if you insist on keeping up the artifact theme.
As for artifacts, there are some underwhelming ones. Caged sun and Strata scythe depend heavily on number of certain basics you run, they aren't goiod outside monocolor decks. Empyrial Plate is unneeded because you aren't really keeping your hand full. Add more swords if you can.Even bad swords will do on a budget honestly. It's not much, but they're not terrible in voltron. Also add Talisman of Unity and Fellwar Stone because 5cmc commanders like to hit the field earlier than expected. Sensei's Divining Top can make your draws better,and since you lack conventional draw spells (most of Sigarda's draw is engine-like more than a good one-time boost), it could help.

I love sliver too, Diffusion Sliver is necessary, but try to use a quick and strong strategy at first and let them in sideboard. I think 20 lands is enough, try to use Reflecting Pool, Cavern of Souls, Aether Hub and Tendo Ice Bridge. Instead of Collected Company and Commune with Nature, I think it's better use one Uncage the Menagerie, 3 Aether Vial and another one Descendants' Path. The slots that remains, fullfill with slivers. I have one deck modern sliver deck, take a look sometime.

I have a foil Sigarda, Host of Herons and a foil Reflecting Pool and a bunch of foil basics, mostly plains forests and swamps, that I am not doing anything with. If you want any of these check out this list of cards I still need for a The Gitrog Monster edh deck. So long as the cards add up to whatever you want we can make a deal. I am also looking for foils for my modern abzan deck listed here I still need anything NOT listed as a foil.
Thanks a bunch!

I like your build here. You might consider running Imprisoned in the Moon and Song of the Dryads for some good commander removal. Another land I like to run in my multicolored decks is Reflecting Pool.

Hey, really funny deck name.
Here's a few suggestions:
- Eternal Witness: recursion
- Mentor of the Meek: ridiculous draw with tokens
- Deathrite Shaman: Golgari one drop, ramp, graveyard synergy and hate
- Scavenging Ooze: graveyard synergy, graveyard hate and counters interaction
- Avenger of Zendikar: a lot of tokens and counters interaction
- Anguished Unmaking: exile any nonland permanent
- Beast Within: destroy any permanent
- Abrupt Decay
- Golgari Signet and Selesnya Signet: both are better than Cluestone and Keyrune.
I suggest before you spend any money or trades on any upgrades consider first upgrading the manabase. Getting good Abzan dual lands is a great investment because these lands will most likely never be bad and can be used in a large amount of decks you build.
- Overgrown Tomb
- Temple Garden
- Godless Shrine
- Windswept Heath
- Wooded Foothills
- Bloodstained Mire
- Flooded Strand
- Reflecting Pool
- Mana Confluence
- Woodland Cemetery
- Isolated Chapel
- Llanowar Wastes
- Canopy Vista
Consider first cutting Golgari Guildgate for Wastes and Selesnya Guildgate for Vista?
Good luck with your deck.

Wow, this is super fun! It is very similar to a list I recently cooked up. I would have saved a lot of time if I had found yours first. Some of the similarities I like are:
Sen Triplets/Mana rocks/Paradox Engine. This is basically a match made in heaven. Speed your deck, facilitate your commander, and practically fall into an infinite. I have two suggestions. First, add Fellwar Stone. It is a CMC multicolored rock for your opponents' spells. Second, if you don't like Staff of Domination, try Temple Bell. You may give a few cards to your opponents, but you can use that effect in a Sen Triplets deck anyway, and sometimes people will leave you alone some for the Group Hug aspect.
Multicolored land base. Fixing for your deck and facilitates the Sen Triplets ability. I would suggest that you check out Exotic Orchard, Reflecting Pool, Thespian's Stage, and Vesuva. You can make them what you want for casting other players' spells. You can tutor them up with Tolaria West, just like the Moxes. With that small package, I add Dark Depths as a wincon. Again, tutorable with Tolaria West.
I am finding Unsummon effects to be very powerful in Sen Triplets. You have Chain of Vapor and Cyclonic Rift. Those are great, but I find Unsubstantiate and Venser, Shaper Savant to be powerhouses. Unsubstantiate is an Unsummon that doubles as an extra Remand, which is great with Sen Triplets. Venser, Shaper Savant plays nicely with Riptide Laboratory, which is nice with Sen Triplets, Archaeomancer, Snapcaster Mage, as well as Reflector Mage and AEther Adept. Bounce their stuff, bounce your stuff, cast it all, gain some tempo if you don't. Helps with going infinite with Paradox Engine, too.
I am surprised that you don't run Teferi's Protection . It has so many uses, not the least of which is playing Sen Triplets, playing Teferi's Protection , and then just waiting to open with Sen Triplets to combo off. I have used that trick a few times, but it is also amazing for getting through a board wipe, Fogging a huge attack, or even just rescuing a combo piece that is under attack.
As an additional suggestion, I am having a blast with Mechanized Production. I drop it on a manarock most commonly, and if nothing else, I get to ramp each turn before someone blasts it. If they don't deal with it, I get to win after a few turns. Just a suggestion if you are feeling like removing an infinite combo, you could replace it with an alternate wincon that advances your goals along the way.
Anyway, great deck! It is fun seeing someone develop similar ideas. I had the same thing happen with my Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control deck, and the cross pollination was extremely beneficial for development of that deck. If you are interested in checking out my Sen deck, here it is, Sente: The Politics and Metaphor of Stones. Check it out, give feedback as you see fit, and +1 for your deck from me.

I like to use Manabase Crafter (http://manabasecrafter.com/) every time I look for lands. Select the colours of your commander, click your commander, and it will give you every possible mana source for those colours.
Along with most of the things mentioned already by others, I'd like to endorse the Jund Panorama, Savage Lands, Reflecting Pool, and Darigaaz's Caldera. These all tap for any of your commander's colours.
