Bou on EDH Licia, Tribute for the Tribune

Spectra Ward is a little high on the curve, but it's one-sided and +2/+2.. hmm. Also very pretty.

Unquestioned Authority is perfect! guarantees a clean hit, totally on theme, and you even get a card. Might switch out my helmet for this.

If you want what is imo a better card than Favor of the Mighty, use Spectra Ward

Hey JaysomeDecks,

Nice to see another Sigarda deck that runs (almost) no artifacts and plenty of artifact hate. I love your inclusion of Titania's Song, great find. I browsed to your list and here are some thoughts:

  • How is Celestial Mantle working for you? I never tested it myself as it seemed too expensive for its effect. Whats your take on that?
  • Do you get enough value out of Exploration? When I ran it, it did not often made a difference because of the low amount of lands. Curious to hear your experiences with that card.
  • I ended up cutting Flickerform. Keeping 4 mana open was quite a hefty tax imo. You could consider Heroic Intervention for that spot if you happen to have similar experiences.
  • Did you know Spectra Ward prevents you from playing new auras on Sigarda afterwards? It doesn't remove existing aura's, but it does prevent new (colored) aura's to target Sigarda.
  • Novablast Wurm seems like a random inclusion ;). If you are looking for more wipes I can really recommend Austere Command. Easy to shape to benefit you the most and can also knock out all artifacts, like creeping corrosion. Divine Reckoning is another good wipe for voltron decks.
  • Other cards I can recommend are: Battle Mastery, Aurification, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Darksteel Mutation, and Lignify.

Hope there are some thoughts there that are helpful to you.

GL & HF,

Beebles

Of course!

Some cards I think are a little on the weaker side are cards like Aven Mindcensor, Iridescent Angel and Resolute Archangel. Maybe Sunblast Angel, but that's because I think she would be more useful if she had flash so you could play her at instant speed if an opponent attacks you, rather than destroying the creatures that have already dealt damage to you as part of your main phase. Nevermore seems weak too, as commander is a singleton format. Spectra Ward has kind of a high cmc and is easier to remove than an artifact, but if you like it then keep it.

Those are just some suggestions! I hope this helps!

bluechandra on 1st commander deck .. ever

pillarofcats I think it would behoove you to add a few buff enchantments, because with FS and HXPR, if you can give Narset some decent buffs (even before blockers to help her survive) it leaves sweepers as pretty much the only way to kill her. Spectra Ward, Celestial Mantle, Angelic Destiny, Eldrazi Conscription (The ladder presumably being less good because of the hard cast mana)

Sconed - Thanks for the comment! Sorry it's taken me a while to respond! I haven't really thought too much about budget options, but so far I've found a few different ones! Naturally, they may make the deck a little more slow and clunky, but that is sort of expected.

Endless Horizons in place of Land Tax ... It's still a way of guaranteeing your land drops, and it helps thin the deck a bit as well. It hurts a lot if it gets removed, and it comes down later than Land Tax normally would.

Cradle of Vitality in place of Archangel of Thune ... This is clearly a trade off in which Archangel of Thune is better, but that's the difference between the value in those cards. This still lets you get creatures bigger, and also helps with Herald of War, which is another reason for Archangel of Thune.

Semblance Anvil in place of Urza's Incubator, or any other mana ramp card ... This is definitely slower, and I personally wouldn't recommend it just because there may not be a card that you want to toss to activate it. It is certainly an option though!

Umezawa's Jitte and Sword of Light and Shadow can be replaced with just about any other equipment, though the options provided by Jitte are really awesome. The recursion provided by Sword of L&S is great, as is the protection, but it could be replaced with other hexproof things, or even Spectra Ward

Other than that, the suggestions provided by Gleeock are also pretty solid ones!

Muglacious_NiceFaceToad on Angelic Horde

Not yet but I am looking to construct something similar. I'll let you know if I do.

I really like the pro-color element you have going. I run a pro-color Angel Tribal (work in progress) that I have been tweeking for a while and would love to put some of the angels I have kicking around tht didn't make the cut to use! Also I am just discovering Horde and it seems to be the answer to all the really bad tribal decks that never really work well.

I'm excited about;

Desolation Angel looks brutal in horde.

Herald of the Host Herald of the host looks fun!

Iridescent Angel sounds brutal to deal with.

Here are some recommendations based on my tribal deck;

Concerted Effort would probably work really well in this build.

Luminarch Ascension If you worked the rules for it it could be good with a d-6 dice.

Spectra Ward....??? could be good to Iridescent Angel an Avacyn...

Angel of Jubilation is super useful.

Angelic Skirmisher HAS to go in. She is just too good.

Bruna, the Fading Light seems like an auto-include 2-for-1. and if you have bruna why not Gisela, the Broken Blade?

Twilight Shepherd could cause difficulties.

Reya Dawnbringer & Dawnbreak Reclaimer for some recursion. More recursion would probably be brutal.

Anyway I'll stop pestering you and build my own deck lol... Sorry for the wall of text. I'll send you a copy when I do for it's is always good to collaborate eh?
