Description

My first Commander deck build...

31 July 2017 - This current configuration is set up for a very defensive 'dont touch my stuff' kind of feel with stuff like Terra Eternal, Privileged Position, Aegis of the Gods...etc. Recently been getting cloned and land destructed so I am going to try this out.~BoS

I'd trade out a few cards. Utopia Sprawl is a better version of Sheltered Aerie. It can come in turn one for some solid ramp, and costs 2 less to cast.

Since you don't have too much graveyard play yourself, you may consider Rest in Peace instead of Tormod's Crypt. It completely shuts down grave-based decks, instead of dealing them a one-time blow. And it's an enchantment.

Recumbent Bliss may gain you a small amount of life, but it can only enchant creatures, and can't prevent their (possibly game-winning) abilities from being activated. I'd suggest Song of the Dryads. This card is notorious for rendering powerful threats useless. (Just imagine casting this on an Avacyn, Angel of Hope vs casting Recumbent Bliss)

Overall, pretty solid deck. If you're interested, feel free to check out my Sigarda deck as well.

Thanks for the great input JaysomeDecks. I will certainly consider those changes! I probably have a couple of those cards in my collection.

The deck is pretty solid, but I would recommend adding a Kor Spiritdancer. She is great for the deck, I would replace it for Krosan Tusker.

Thanks for the input KingMathoro... I checked her out a while ago but forgot all about her. I appreciate the reminder.

I rarely like to suggest a different commander. Though if you are intrested in a much more Enchantment-centric deck. Karametra, God of Harvests(Which I now see is in your sideboard) is an an amazing enchantress commander. Though if you just like Sigarda and not looking to go full enchantments, more power to ya.

Being that I have an artifact commander deck, I like to suggest Stony Silence and Kataki, for even just a side board. Kataki is more forgiving than the former with all of the mana available to you.

Great suggestions KylerStar. I like Sigarda, Host of Herons for her hexproof and ability to protect from the sacrifice of permanents... but have Karametra, God of Harvests in there to change it up from time to time. I will have to check out the cards you mentioned. I do play against a guy who is really artifact heavy, but at this point he is not enough of a threat in that regard to really aim at him.

Appreciate it!

Oh! And if you're ever looking for an alternate win con(against someone who just stax defences or something), Helix Pinnacle is a good option for white green. White green usually has access to tons of Mana to dump into it, put spare Mana into it during the end step before your turn, and it protects itself from spot removal.

Have you considered Land Tax?

June 6, 2017 9:44 a.m.

Hey Kyln,I have considered it. Basically the art is so hideous and I rarely run into land problems that I have avoided even purchasing it! :) Sounds dumb but that is the case. It is a great mechanic though. Thanks for the feedback.

Might I suggest Lightmine Field to help with tokens strategies? Also Spike Feeder with Sunbond nets you infinite life.

Thanks for the suggestions MadHatter23. Certainly interesting possible additions to this deck!

I have to worry about your meta if you feel Terra Eternal is so necessary as a mainboard defense option. It is a good effect, but a well rounded group of players shouldn't have to protect against land hate that much (plus its kind of a dcik move).

Moving on though I feel you've not done enough digging into magic's card pool if you wanted to be more defensive and didn't think to grab sphere of saftey. Sigil of the Empty Throne could be good too, but the sphere is better and you probably don't want too many 5 drops other than your commander anyway. Drumhunter looks like the logical cut for the sphere if/when you find one, but, not knowing your meta, you might could drop Leyline of Lifeforce instead. I doubt stopping counterspells directly is as effective as stopping interaction with your entire turn in the case of say Grand Abolisher, but even that may not matter if you know they can't pay the mana to retaliate.

In any case, you have to remember that green and white are far better are protecting themselves than drawing cards, but they see that as the same thing. Fog and Holy Day are to green and white as Counterspell is to the blue player. If it stops the opponent for a turn, that means they will have another turn to draw into another spell. This in turn makes the more powerful Ghostly Prison, and of course sphere of saftey, akin to Time Stretch. You may not be taking those extra turns immediately, but ideally in your colors you don't have to.
