Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion

I feel like there may be a better voltron/enchantment selesnya commander than Sigarda, Host of Herons , since her most important ability is only useful against some matchups.

I will look and try to find one. Google image search FTW!

Demarge on Favorite Voltron Commander and why?

Sigarda, Host of Herons is my favorite voltron commander, give her a totem armor and vigilance, throw down Dueling Grounds and she will hold down many enemies while also threatening to kill any opponent.

I built a Sigarda, Host of Herons voltron deck a while back, with the aim to make the commander as hard to kill as possible. I filled the deck with ways to make her indestructible, so combined with her hexproof and ability to prevent sacrifice effects means that the only real way of removing her is global neg effects (like Black Sun's Zenith and Toxic Deluge ).

Equipping her with Pariah's Shield or Pariah while indestructible is also pretty funny.

Thanks for your reply, ghostfire86! My other decks had priority for a bit so only now picking this up again.

Sigarda, Host of Herons is a great card, but I feel it would be too random for my version. Force Sac and Bounce All are the two greatest weakness of the deck obviously. Your version gives you a few options to get Sigarda out when needed and mine is not focused on that. An infinite combo like your deck has is an alternative win but I'd rather lose than adding one. Just something I don't personally like :)

Shielded by Faith is something I would never cast on something as useless as an Enchantress. I prefer the totem armor cards because they are either cheaper or add something extra. If the shield would have had indestructible itself (like Darksteel Plate is) it would be different.

Sram, Senior Edificer is the cheaper option and therefore maybe better. I like the idea that Eidolon of Blossoms lets you draw a card when it enters (unlike Sram) though. Also, when reanimated with Replenish and with it other enchantments it could generate massive card draw.

Greater Good would be an awesome solution for when Uril would get blown to bits. If you at instant speed can draw an insane amount of cards it's easy to get him up and running in no time again without losing pace. Haste is an issue, that is true. I guess I will have to playtest this.

Runes of the Deus is of course steep in price, but this card is made for Uril. It adds flavor and coolness and it should be in there. I understand that other enchantments are cheaper and therefore more competitive, but I am happy with this for at least now.

Odd ass this may sound, you might have too many creatures and the creatures you have may also need minor adjustment. Renegade Rallier , Wall of Omens , Strangleroot Geist or Selfless Spirit seem like they would be ideal as does Eldritch Evolution in a sacrifice deck. I wouldn't play a graveyard strategy here, one, decks are running graveyard hate in the main-board and two, you won't do it as well as a deck dedicated to it.

Siege Rhino and Restoration Angel would be viable with Eldritch, Qasali Ambusher would already be good in your deck, but it's even better if you can cast it for free then flip it over to a Thragtusk or Sigarda, Host of Herons . You also want a basic Plains in your deck, heck you might want to go to 20 land.

I guess what I'd do as a starter is:

-2 Birds of Paradise -2 Blood Artist -1 Collected Company -1 Rally the Ancestors -2 Cartel Aristocrat

+2 Land (1 a Plains) +1 Siege Rhino +1 Renegade Rallier +1 Restoration Angel +3 Eldritch Evolution

As an aside, the single best card to use with Varolz, the Scar-Striped is Death's Shadow ... I hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.

you really need to get Stony Silence and some graveyard hate into that sideboard of yours though.

If I were to ignore price completely, I would upgrade your sideboard to look something like this:

3x Stony Silence

2x Rest in Peace

2x Surgical Extraction

3x Damping Sphere

1x Kambal, Consul of Allocation

1x Thoughtseize

1x Sigarda, Host of Herons

1x Sorcerous Spyglass

1x Deglamer

walruscustard on It looks like you have Wurms

I really like the deck, but I notice it has too many creatures in it that aren't Wurms. Take out Sigarda, Host of Herons and Elvish Piper and put in Battering Wurm and Endless Wurm. That should smooth out your draws a lot better.

Haha, yes I overlooked the Scrivener card. I had a moment of dyslexia and I think my mind put the word sorcery in its text >.>

I would then change it in my deck as well. I think Cataclysmic Gearhulk is a solid inclusion. It is a somewhat pseudo-boardwipe that brings hate to the table, but not TOO much hate in that everyone gets to keep a few things of their choice in play. As someone mentioned though Sigarda, Host of Herons doesn't care if you play Cataclysmic Gearhulk. But that is very situational mainly on that deck alone.

Ancestral Knowledge to me is a great 2 drop. Being able to essentially Dig Through Time with 3 additional cards mind you, is incredibly powerful to set up a game plan. Not to mention you can choose "0" as a number so you're not exiling anything away. Just blink it as need be, and to knock off the age counters.

Primordial Mist is an interesting approach. As said this can easily cheat you into free fatties, and a 2/2 usually flies under the radar, no one is usually too concerned about 2/2 manifested creatures I feel like. However the only problematic thing with it is if other players start dropping bomb cards and someone decides to board wipe, it is risky in that aspect. But I feel there may be some potential in that build tbh.
