Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion

What about some cards that add resiliency? Sigarda, Host of Herons provides protection from Grave Pact strategies. Relic Seeker might be jank but he’s another body that can go grab a piece of gear. Also, no Eternal Witness ? Finally, Avacyn, Angel of Hope is the mother of all anti-board wipe creatures. Also good tech is Linvala, Keeper of Silence . Stops Prossh, at least.

Qolorful on Best commander for a learning ...

Hey guys! I finally convinced my GF to give commander a shot (I dont really play other formats), and now I need to build her a deck that is simple for her and cheap, as well as on a good oriented theme. She doesnt really like demons and zombies and stuff like that. My thoughts were Sigarda, Host of Herons or Mayael the Anima , but I want to know if anyone has anything that would be even easier for her to learn.

In mono green there is only one such effect and that is Tajuru Preserver otherwise you can play creatures that may benefit from being destroyed I.E. Young Wolf , Strangleroot Geist , Kitchen Finks , or cards like Scavenging Ooze that utilize the graveyard, if you splash white you gain access to Sigarda, Host of Herons and Sigarda, Heron's Grace . Hope this Helps

Esbilon is right, 19 lands is not enough, especially with the curve you have. The only time I would play 19 lands is with Burn or Infect. I'd suggest 21 lands. Splashing green might be an interesting prospect. you get access to mana dorks to help with your curve, Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch would be best but Avacyn's Pilgrim is a good budget option. You would also be able to play Tireless Tracker for would help you with card draw and Collected Company to get your humans out. Harmonize , Dromoka's Command , and Hardened Scales all work pretty well with humans. And Heroic Intervention and Blossoming Defense give you protection. You would also get access to Sigarda, Host of Herons and Sigarda, Heron's Grace if you need a way to protect against control.

koylucumert on sneak attack, sigarda and harmless ...

so lets say ı have a Sneak Attack and a lot of red mana. during my turn, i use sneak attack a bunch and put some creatures on the battlefield. one of them is Sigarda, Host of Herons . then i use Harmless Offering and give the sneak attack to my opponent. then attacks and after that i move to my end step. does sigarda prevent the sacrifice from sneak attack because my opponent controls it?

You can still lose to sacrifice. I would throw Tajuru Preserver or Sigarda, Host of Herons in.

Conjecture: Some walkers are awesome even w/o Ults. Nahiri, the Harbinger has Rummaging, & can exile stuff on the spot. Why Stony Silence ? That would actually encourage me to keep Garruk Wildspeaker in; besides, his first ability has lots of mana advantage. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales is pretty much Sigarda, Host of Herons in a Walker, but sure. I'll ditch the (Pay tribute to a dead walker) idea at least. I guess there are no good Gideons at all... Also, saying "No" to the new Saheeli is insane. Since you stated this deck doesn't have enough creatures, she is only made better as of this. But why Stony Silence over Karn, the Great Creator of Argentum? His First non-static ability allows you to target UP TO 1 Artifact to become a creature. You could get that loyalty for FREE if you wanted. All w/o needing to change anything. Sorry, but I dunno why Stony Silence over him.

Based on what you are assuming, though... these next cards would be what should be cut next:

Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter : He's only in there for my CMDR; which relies on infinite Combat phases, & Jiang only needs 5 mana to make this work. If I switched to Sliver Queen again, he's at least cut worthy, unless, I find an infinite loop for creation of her kin, & Yanggu #2's Static Ability. So he's not exactly out just yet.

Kaya, Bane of the Dead (& Kaya, Ghost Assassin too?): Just because something like her as a 6-drop should be cut is odd. This Kaya basically forces your opponents to use Shroud instead; & that's the only flaw I had w/ her. Even now though, Shroud is obsolete; in a game where Hexproof is superior, & no cards ever talk about Shroud ever again, a big drop like her, probably is for the best to keep. But Kaya #1? I already have way have ways enough to permit cutting her. That said, I still need more ways to use Flicker cards & effects in this deck. Venser, the Sojourner is affably bad here, & I still need alternatives besides Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Felidar Guardian … For now though, Kaya #1 will be cut.

Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner : It's not like I'll have a 4/4 being ready to be cast at any point. She does, however, untap target permanent. How should I use this feeble effect? Remember, I still have Saheeli, Sublime Artificer , & Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast (Shocked you stated to keep this one.); I have so many infinite combos here that I'd rather cut The Chain Veil because of this. How do I make them work?

Ugin, the Ineffable : Uh... Karn Liberated has a better Spot removal ability? Sure, putting a cheap cost of your colorless stuff is fun, but I'd rather use Ugin #1 over this.

I dunno about your opinion on all these, but that's what I got for now. I'll see if I can find anything else worth chopping...

SaberTech on Karona, The Pillow Enchantress

1 month ago

I was looking over your list again and thought of a few other cards that might be worth trying out in the deck if you haven't tried them already.

Sigarda, Host of Herons is a strong voltron target and a way to prevent your creatures from being shut down by cards like Grave Pact .

Angel of Jubilation interferes with a number of recursion strategies and prevents opponents from sacrificing Karona when it switches to being under their control.

Sram, Senior Edificer , Mesa Enchantress , and Eidolon of Blossoms as additional enchantress effects.

And I guess Flickering Ward is a questionable pick since it can cause aura's to fall off your creatures depending on the color you pick, but its value lies in it being so cheap to cast and return to your hand. Aside from being a viable card in its own right, it basically translates into: Pay : Draw a card for each enchantress effect you control. You can also cast it on an opponent's creature as a political bargaining tool or to knock other auras off of them.
