Serra's Sanctum and the future

Commander (EDH) forum

I'm considering investing in a Serra's Sanctum, and I was wondering how likely a ban for it may be. I know no one can really anticipate what the RC will do next, but I still want to test the water.

So commander analysts, do you see any hints for the sanctum being banned, despite Gaea's Cradle persistently avoiding the hammer?

No ban because with other lands that do the same like Cabal Coffers and Gaea's Cradle, I don't see Serra's Sanctum getting banned. And since white is the worst ramp color (arguably red is worse) this land is important to its color. So go ahead invest, because this card will never get the hammer.

There's 0 chance for a ban. There are no decks that abuse the card at all. You need to be at Tolarian Academy levels of power for you to get noticed by the RC. You should buy one asap if you're getting one. It's worth it for your deck if you play lots of enchantments.

Yeah. Serra's Sanctum will never get banned. You'd see Gaea's Cradle, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, or Cabal Coffers before it. Definitely a safe investment, if you're using a ton of enchantments.

Buy it now. It's so worth it. I own one, I have it in my Daxos the Returned deck. About the only deck I can think of it being an important piece. I don't even run it in Zur the Enchanter.

no ban, but don't know about it being a safe investment. Might get a reprint in the next masters set for all we know.

Yeah buy now. I bought mine for Daxos the Returned as well right after that set was released. Its about doubled in price since then.

And yeah no way are they banning it. Its way harder to get enchantments than creatures / artifacts so even if it was banned cradle would be first.
