Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion

WhichKing on Angel Tribal

1 week ago

You may want to consider changing your commander to Sigarda, Host of Herons as your angel force consists almost solely of white angels. Changing to Sigarda lets you focus more on your tribe instead of getting diluted by goodstuff cards in other colours. It also opens up the plan B of going voltron with an annoyingly resilient and difficult-to-remove commander.

Green offers you ramp and lets you have mana dorks and amazing token-producers (more on this later) to fill your early game and gum up the group as your angels dominate the skies. Doubling Season lets you get instant ultimates on powerful planeswalkers like Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Elspeth, Knight-Errant. With Divine Visitation, your token producers suddenly give you armies of angels.

SynergyBuild on The Many-Deck Dilema

First off... you are wanting to build the wrong Neheb list...

Secondly, it depends. If you have fun playing each deck you have, build more! Otherwise, make sure you upgrade the decks that you don't enjoy playing as much, or sell them (or parts of them, and save others to put in other, more fun decks), so you can make more fun decks.

Really, if you want a deck that can be 'meta-controlling', you should figure out the main gameplans of your playgroup, and attack it from another angle. This will consistently make you win more, and even if you get targetted, will commonly lead to a 50%+ Winrate.

My Local Game Store has an issue of not running sweepers, opting for a lot of single-target, cheap removal spells. I decided to build an enchantress-combo list (Earthcraft/Squirrel Nest) prison deck, which I used because I can run Greater Auramancy, Privileged Position, Sterling Grove, and being in WG, Teferi's Protection and Heroic Intervention for the occasional 1 or 2 sweepers the control deck finds.

I also made a Karametra, God of Harvests deck with Archetype of Endurance, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Temur Sabertooth, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Selfless Spirit, Privileged Position, and Asceticism to combat all of their removal entirely, these decks have only ever been interacted with Cyclonic Rift before, and as both are majorly ramp lists at heart, I can just empty my hand after.

Other times I have heard stories of times where every player is running infinite token decks and so run Rakdos Charm to combat them, and Tainted AEther, or Authority of the Consuls. There even was a story about a playgroup in which everyone played artifact decks, so the girl showed up with a Kataki, War's Wage stax list, running cards like Hokori, Dust Drinker, Linvala, the Preserver, and a bunch of walkers like Elspeth, Gideon, Ugin, and even a Karn as wincons.

Sliver Hivelord could be a great 5 colors commander. Sigarda, Host of Herons IS an anti-meta deck and a good voltron commander

Bontu's Monument is a pretty bad card and should be replaced with Hope of Ghirapur as it prevents the one blue player with open mana to stop you, Sigarda, Host of Herons does nothing to further your gameplan and is hard to cast. If your meta is full of pox decks it may be ok. I would probably replace it with Rishkar, Peema Renegade. Null Rod seems pretty bad as it hinders your combos, but maybe it is worth it against the scepter decks as you don't have countermagic .Maybe play Stony Silence instead since it is easier to destroy artifacts. I have found Apostle's Blessing pretty solid. This is a variant I brewed up but haven't tested yet: Paradox Sisay

I think elesh norn is just too good to remove. If you ever manage to cast this T2 or T3, which won me a tournament:p, it just ends games on the spot. Plus I randomly got a foil phyrexian text version for 2$ so I may be biased from love :).

I've been having lots of success with

Dragonlord Dromoka: I know the cost is steep, but the lifeline has been super helpful randomly.

Solemnity: I've got lots of graveyard and counters strategies in my meta. This card randomly hoses entire decks especially meren, which I love

Scroll Rack: this is probably my favorite T1 play. Always happy to see it.

Cloudstone Curio the only masterpiece I own, the only Noah Bradley card I like, the most ridiculous combo enabler outside of paradox engine. This card is silly and I think if you dont play with it you should at least try.

Baird, Steward of Argive: surprisingly awesome protection.

Sigarda, Host of Herons: i think not playing this is a mistake period.

Grand Abolisher: with yuan getting this is more reliable and I think it earns its spot.

Hope of Ghirapur: good protection for the combo turn. Good recursion card too.

Staff of Domination: this card enables some silly lines when you can be net positive on mana.

Side note you've convinced me on null rod, most amount I've ever paid for a card and totally worth it :p also seton is stupid and I love it :)

Wow, this set looks amazing! There is no way that I shall not purchase at least some cards from it, provided that they are not too expensive, and I am very pleased to see that both Temporal Manipulation and Sigarda, Host of Herons are finally being reprinted, since both of those cards have been in dire need of reprints. I do really hope that WotC also reprints both Akroma's Memorial and Rhystic Study in this set, since both of those cards are currently far too expensive and this is the best possible set in which to reprint them.

However, on the negative side, WotC just recently released Masters 25 as a celebration of this game's 25th anniversary, so this is a flagrant attempt to get more money from their customers. Also, this is now the fourth product line that WotC is retiring, after Duel Decks, Premium Decks, and From the Vault; why are they doing that? Do they not realize that all of those sets were very popular with the players because they were great ways to reprint older cards without reintroducing them to standard and/or modern formats? I do hope that WotC has some amazing new products planned to replace those that they have retired.
