Oloro_Magic on Cards that hold a special …

1 month ago

Well TypicalTimmy, I don't think I can come close to the honestly quite touching memories of your father that you share and how magic has come to occupy a place for the cultivation of memories, I do agree with your general sentiment behind making this post. I hope it sticks! This seems like a really wholesome way for the community to come together so thank you for that.

For me the card that holds the most prominent place in my heart is Sigardian Priest hands down. I remember making admittedly very bad limited decks with this card, as well as putting it in a deck when a bunch of friends were just starting magic. It became a bit of an inside joke in that friend group that Sigardian Priest was the best card ever printed, that its ability was always relevant. Of course this wasn't true but it provided hours of laughs simply because I put it in a deck to play with a group of friends that were looking to play fun casual magic, in many ways its the card that broke me a bit more out of my shell and made me commit to being a more active voice on whatever I put my mind to. In honor of the memories it has provided, and regardless of the fact all those people have since moved or stopped playing magic I have made a habit of routinely buying them out, it has been a while since I took a tally but we are somewhere close to 500 foil and non-foil copies at this point; a truly stupid monument to a truly stupid joke.

The other cards I have to single out are Deja Vu, Ad Nauseam, and Library of Alexandria. All three of these cards speak to me personally. I'm a classicist by training with research focused on the city of Alexandria, so the last one should be largely obvious, Ad Nauseam and library linked my interests so to speak so they will always hold a place that is special to me. For Deja Vu I've always loved that quote, as in many ways it is what I research but also horribly far off the mark as history also seeks to identify anomalies and from there, in the work I do, situate those anomalies within a new pattern. So yes its repetition, but at the same time that is mischaracterizing a vital part of the process. The seemingly contradictory nature then never fails to get me thinking about this challenge the discipline as a whole faces, and thus provides a great tool for self-reflection.

One more I would be remiss to not mention is Gravity Negator, I simply find the art on this card incredible, nothing more, I can't help but admire it.

I just made a deck very similar to this. I do see Sigardian Priest but maybe you could look into Devout Chaplain or Fiend Hunter or Ulvenwald Tracker for a bit more control.

Hey, I would also like to see you get the pushes you need so I'm sure something can be worked out. Off the top of my head I also am looking for a Spellskite (market right now is close to $14 I believe), Spreading Seas 1-3, and an Inquisition of Kozilek. I am also interested in most allies so if you have any more unlisted I'll probably want them.

I also collect walkers and Sigardian Priest (weird right) so if we can't figure something out with similar value I value each Sigardian Priest at 0.25 for filler purposes.

If this still isn't possible I would be fine with trading the second push for value as I need the Urborg.

I own an unhealthy amount of Sigardian Priest's simply because it is the best card and when I play it my opponent must fold.

Thanks for the ideas stewa238. This deck originally had Gryff's Boon in it (as well as Smuggler's Copter before the ban), but was removed to make room for removal spells. While I certainly agree that having some flyer support would help with this deck, the removal spells do just as well. Also, having Sigardian Priest to keep an opponent's large creatures tapped down also helps.

I like the Odric/Angel theme - and you stuck to it. A handful of angels early in the game could be a problem. I would prefer Thalia's Lieutenant to Sigardian Priest - you have enough humans to get a reliable boost. ....+1

now I like your suggestions. however the Sigardian Priest is good to have in standard with people running shota's deck. Sigardian allows you to tap the thing in the ice while you attack with another creature. As for the Skeleton Key in-place of Ashmouth Blade  Flip. I find ashmouth blade to be better simply because of the use of Lone Rider  Flip. That being said if you feel that you want to run this deck and change something then by all means be my guest. Thats the beauty of magic no one deck need be exactly similar. also I plan to change some things right here so hope you find them okay.

I absolutely love the deck. My kind of theme, running Odric, Lunarch Marshal with keywords from Lone Rider  Flip and using Hanweir Garrison to pump Thalia's Lieutenant.

Have you considered swapping Sigardian Priest for Thraben Inspector to bring the mana curve down a bit, or Aerial Responder for more juicy (and reliable) keywords with Odric? Flying certainly can help with getting over 1/1 Servo walls.

Another consideration is perhaps Skeleton Key as a 1 or 2 of for skulk; taking out 1-2 Neglected Heirloom  Flip.
