Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion
4 days ago
I use all those same tricks in my Budget Commander League deck Glissa, Scrap Trawler $50 EDH.
It's difficult because the A/D/D use the same abilities so the obvious Torpor Orb is out.
Leyline of the Void is the best, if it's in your opening hand then It's CMC0, otherwise CMC4 is quite reasonable. Shuts down the recursive component of the deck. Bojuka Bog is a classic. Rest in Peace / Grafdigger's Cage but since you have some recursion too might hurt you on occasion. With either you could combo with Helm of Obedience . Some others Angel of Finality (Angel). Nihil Spellbomb (Draw). Keep in mind that Leyline of the Void also means Meren of Clan Nel Toth isn't getting experience counters since the creatures are exiling not "die"ing.
Cauldron of Souls might also help, but they can see it coming, and CMC5. Cauldron Haze is a bit more tricky. Archangel Avacyn Flip but doesn't help against Sacrifice (shes no Sigarda, Host of Herons ). Teferi's Protection works good.
Or just haste + Master of Cruelties him lol, if the board is clear.

landofMordor, unfortunately there are commands for all the dragonlords we have, but wouldn't it be fascinating if enemy-colored dragonlords rose up, combining somehow (likely in set 3 after a lengthy conflict) with the ranks of the present dragonlords and making them 3-color again?
Also, there's not a fourth angel sister on Innistrad. We have Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Bruna, Light of Alabaster , and Sigarda, Host of Herons . Some would consider Avacyn, Angel of Hope to be among them, but she kinda went crazy and died so... not anymore. Even so, we got three different cards for her. We're good.

@SynergyBuild: What I'm trying to say is: I wanted to know 's biggest bane in CMDR is as a CMDR; the hardest can handle while still having a shred of a chance of winning. If Animar, Soul of Elements isn't it, & neither is Sigarda, Host of Herons , then who is harder than either? Once I get the results imputed, & find out what weakness' such a deck has, I'll proceed to find such answers, & make the cuts from there (Finally...). Any thoughts? I wish I could make this an actual outside topic, but this unfortunately is where it'll happen...

Lion's Eye Diamond is pretty good as a means to discard your hand and get reanimation targets, course you only want to use it when you have a tutor or exhume on the stack.
Smallpox is a rather good option to self discard as well, and it gets better with the bigger the playgroup.
Now outside the other suggested creatures on your forum post (all are rather good, especially the 4x Storm Crow ) there are many rather good creatures you can run.
Sun Titan can be quite fun with your enchantment reanimation spells.
Grave Titan is just a beast you can not only reanimate, but also can realistically ramp into with some double ritual hands, even if the table answers it you at least have two zombies.
Consecrated Sphinx draw a lot of cards.
Sire Of Insanity if the ability goes off turn 1-3 most decks will fold.
Sigarda, Host of Herons a preserver that's just better to reanimate than a 2/1 body.
hmm if I wanted to I could easily spend a good hour just typing up good creatures to reanimate or really good spells to ramp, tutor, or disrupt opposing threats (you may want some way to deal with hate for your deck), but my eyes hurt and should have slept a couple hours ago. you can absorb plenty of info by looking at legacy reanimator lists.

YOU BUMP EM, I'LL RUMPROAST THEM, LET'S DO THE CARAMELLDANSEN!
(Pile of Questions spins until the latch for them opens...)
The Ur-Dragon: Tibalt is a FAR better Walker than Davriel Cane!
As I still don't have any answers on what the biggest opponent Orzhov can fight & has more of a chance to lose, than win; I'd like some ideas. Once I find the right CMDR, I'll adapt my Orzhov deck further based on how to beat it. Then we'll talk abut cuts; though Edicts are the obvious first to die as I already have enough needed to deal w/ Animar, Soul of Elements , & even Sigarda #1 ( Sigarda, Host of Herons ). All suggestions for the most powerful CMDR Orzhov can fight, & have a hard time beating are welcome. I just want answers soon though; I dunno if anyone remembers this exists though...

Also, an even BIGGER blow for Superfriends; now I clearly understand why nobody uses a single digit aged Walker w/ the power level of Base Nicol Bolas (Pre-Mending/WAR era). I do wonder if there is a permanent that can bounce such Walkers, & back right away. I'm trying to search via Scryfall, & nothing. The new Serra Walker looks awesome though...
Alright, I'll have to remove such a combo that the Truth PSAs lied to me about. I might also need help about what permanent to replace Aminatou, the Fateshifter w/, & no, I'm thinking of something besides Felidar Guardian . Any ideas?
Finally, my deck needs room for improvement from other enemies, & I still need to know what Orzhov has to beat threats like Sigarda, Host of Herons , & stuff more menacing than merely Animar.

According to some, it was stated that Felidar Guardian can flicker herself; though I wanted to be sure myself; after reading the card's ability...
When Felidar Guardian enters the battlefield, you may exile another target permanent you control, then return that card to the battlefield under its owner’s control.
"Another", being the key word. If Felidar Guardian is incapable of Bouncing herself over & over alongside a mass mill engine like Altar of the Brood , I'll be more than happy to remove the combo from there.
The next card I just wanted an opinion on is, sadly, not in that many Superfriends Decks AT ALL. & she's Top-Secret Tech for the Deck archetype as her Second Loyalty ability can be abused for, potentially, Infinite Loyalty Ability use. Yep. It's...
Her Second Loyalty Ability states, & I quote:
-1: Exile another target permanent you own, then return it to the battlefield under your control.
Can't believe there is a ruling about this as well:
Aminatou’s second ability can target any permanent you own, including those another player controls. (2018-07-13)
So why does so few use Aminatou in Superfriends? Just with her Second Loyalty Ability can she bounce Walkers you control w/o the risk that you can't use them again on the same turn.
Since I'll be making a Primer for Superfriends, I'm going to need a list of Anti-Walker Tech to defend such beings from. Obviously The Immortal Sun , AEther Snap are what I can think of. Does anyone know the rest? Don't worry, I'll get to the primer soon enough; although...

As I stated, Animar, Soul of Elements isn't the biggest problem. W/ so many creatures w/ either resistance to having Sacced Permanents Sigarda, Host of Herons , High amounts of Toughness (Anything over, say, 4.), & stuff that is immune to all this deck has to offer. As a result, I wanted for the longest time what (Orzhov)'s biggest enemies really are; as I wanted to resise above deck, & not just make cuts. What would be this deck's biggest opposition as Orzhov Standards be? Now I feel like Orzing (OTL)... I'd like your opinions on these. If the ruling about Aminatou above is true; should it also work for Felidar Guardian ? & what's the biggest opponents against (ORZ)hov, & how to thwart each one? I hope this helps a bit even... Thank you. ^_^
