Sigarda, Host of Herons Discussion

Ozzmium on modern bogles, G/W Hexproof

3 days ago

I think you need to slim down your sideboard. Pick the matchups you have the hardest time against, and then work from there. When I played boggles, I had 4 slots for affinity, 3 for living end, and 2 Sigarda, Host of Herons

Dryad Arbor is a must for this deck. Being able to crack a fetchland for one to take a sacrifice effect, or surprise block is what helps this deck steal wins.

If you really want to throw your opponents for a loop, put in Open the Armory to tutor up exactly the aura you need to win the game. I only tried with 3 copies of it, but it can shore up some inconsistencies you'll have from not being able to budget in Horizon Canopy

I've been thinking about maybe adding red to the deck, which would let me add in cards that would be helpful. I made a new list of possible cards to add, including possible red ones, so I would appreciate thoughts on whether or not I should add red to the deck, and on the list:

Mayael the Anima

Angel of Serenity

Dragonlord Dromoka

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Selvala, Explorer Returned

Sigarda, Host of Herons

Spellbreaker Behemoth

Iroas, God of Victory

Gaea's Herald

Archetype of Endurance

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Purphoros, God of the Forge

Xenagos, the Reveler

Warstorm Surge

Sigarda, Host of Herons Is a great idea, but the problem is is that she is really expensive! I'm trying to figure out an EDH deck I can build with a budget, I already have a powerful/expensive Meren and Prosh deck but my playgroup doesn't exactly appreciate me playing them (needless to say!) I also thought of Krond but that would be more voltron right? Also, while I have your attention :) what's your take on a budget Breya artifact reanimator build? Does it essentially require a combo to win? And I didn't notice those budget decks! Thanks! Keep up the amazing work!

@synonimous_: Thanks for the kind words! I'd be happy to build you an enchantment deck but how about a different commander? Enchantments don't really play into Karametra's strengths. If you have your hopes set on Selesnya, might I suggest Asmira, Holy Avenger, Krond the Dawn-Clad or Sigarda, Host of Herons. If you don't care about color, you could also look at my decks: Srama Lama Ding Dong - Sram $40 Budget Voltron, Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - Uril $40 Budget and Whoomp! Zur It Is - Zur $40 Budget Enchantments.

In place of one of your wrath cards, what do you think of Winds of Rath?

I helped make a Bruna, Light of Alabaster deck for my wife, and my brother has a Sigarda, Host of Herons enchantress deck. Both decks run it and excel immensely after casting it.

Sheoldred, Whispering One takes a turn to get going, and a lot of Legacy decks don't care about it. They path it. They don't play creatures. Etc

Sigarda, Host of Herons is hard to kill, sure, but she isn't a very impressive body and she has been made worse by the printing of cards like Council's Judgment and the ubiquity or former ubiquity of Terminus. At the same time, you are getting a 3-4 mana discount at best and she ends the game in 4 turns, not 3.

Rune-Scarred Demon is a 6/6 flyer so 4 turns still, and it tutors 1 card, so what specific card do you want to get? Griselbrand draws you cards, which is better, ends the game in 3 turns and has lifelink.

Sire Of Insanity is played because for a lot of decks it is just game. Combo decks can't win if they've had to discard their entire hand on turn 1. Control decks are gonna struggle as they need to go land-go every turn. Midrange has to respect the big body.

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is a big body, but she also keeps the board clear of stuff like Delver of Secrets  Flip. True-Name Nemesis. Stoneforge Mystic. Zombie tokens from dredge.

Chancellor of the Annex allows you to go off on turn 1 and your opponent generally can't stop you because of the mana tax, as well as messing with their tempo. It is also a reasonable sized taxing body.

Some other reanimator targets are Worldgorger Dragon (normally you make a buried alive or double entomb pile of Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon, animate dead on Dragon. This makes a loop of WG coming into play. Exiling everything, including Animate, losing animate dead and dying. Everything returning. You tap your lands for mana. Animate dead looks for a target. Repeat for infinite mana then get Oona from Animate Dead and deck someone), Grave Titan (10 power over 3 bodies, makes more bodies) and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur for another sire/griselbrand type effect but slower.
