Serra's Sanctum Discussion
2 days ago
When did they say it won't go away? I wouldn't say ludicrous amounts but a good amount every couple of months. Just bought 2 Chains of Mephistopheles, All Hallow's Eve, Forcefield, The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Wheel of Fortune, Word of Command, and Serra's Sanctum. Keep in mind every single card I buy is usually NM-MP, MP for some of the more expensive cards because the pricing difference is huge.
I didn't even know the cards I bought previously were on the reserve list, I just thought they were crazy expensive because they were crazy good.
CChaosYou're 100% right. I actually heard some youtuber bought our a narwhal (not sure if I spelled it correctly) and the spike settled similarly to your example.

Is it worth it to buy cards that I will actually use from the reserved list? From what I understand, the cards won't be reprinted so they should retain their value. These are not just cards to keep and hope they increase in price, but also cards that I will be using in EDH decks as well.
The specific cards in question I am looking to purchase are...

SufferFromEDHD the Hydra used to tutor up Serra's Sanctum, but I'm currently testing one of the new curses in it's spot. I originally considered Cleansing Meditation but I couldn't reliably trigger threshold, plus I don't need the temptation to destroy all permanents. Honestly, the meta has been calling curses "too competitive" as it is.
TzickyT I appreciate the comment, but the deck runs fine. Clearly our meta are different, because I need Agent of Erebos to deal with all the reanimator in my area. The enchantresses are what make the deck playable. I don't know what your meta is, but if they need to be cut and yet can't survive, something is wrong. The cards you suggest are more good stuff and less focused for what this deck wants. Although the deck does need to be updated, because I'm pretty sure the Hydra and Femeref Enchantress are going to be cut for the new curses, which are actually better when cursing me.
In any event, I appreciate the comments.

No Serra's Sanctum.
I feel confused. Is it not Modern legal?

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.
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)
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!)
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..

I haven't added the discard creatures in mine (still kept a few hatebears) Personally i thought of adding a Serra's Sanctum in the mana base. With the deck running so many enchantments i might be really good

RubyOrzhov - The deck didn't start out to expensive, but its been one I play and tweak the most over the past couple of years. Looking at it now yikes, lol. Snow-Covered Plains are important for Sunstone, but you can ditch Scrying Sheets if you're trying to knock down the budget. Kor Haven can slot in for the Maze of Ith for a couple of bucks cheaper, and it taps for mana (or more straight up removal like Condemn works too!). Glacial Chasm is a new edition, but before then it was just a plains and I was still running a Selfless Squire as another fog. Serra's Sanctum is completely non-essential. I'm not even running enough enchantments to get as much value from it as I'd like.
Land Tax and Tithe can be Gift of Estates and Oreskos Explorer. Temporary Truce is from Portal so it costs a few bucks because of that, but for much less you can run Truce, which is the instant version of it. Or just slot back in the Mentor of the Meek I took out. Angel of Finality can be Stonecloaker. In the general theme, you can run Mobilization and Knight-Captain of Eos for a nice repeatable fog as well. This works well if you've got out a way to protect the Captain.
Academy Rector and Crucible of Worlds are the two expensive cards I put the closest to be needed, but you can work around that too. Just the way EDH works there's still cards I've NEVER drawn in the deck, so I can't say any one is completely needed unless its the actual wincon. Plea for Guidance is your budget Idyllic Tutor or Rector. And White has enough ways to find land (including Eternal Dragon) that CoW is just something nice to have if you can run it.
Thanks for the comment, I hadn't really taken the time to think about a more budget friendly version of this lately!
