Orah, Skyclave Hierophant

Legendary Creature — Kor Cleric


Whenever Orah, Skyclave Hierophant or another Cleric you control dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), return target Cleric card with lesser converted mana cost from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Gadianten on Athreos - Cleric/Zombie

Both tribes of clerics and zombies excel at reanimation and you may as well play into it, with that in mind consider the following, Bishop of Rebirth, Custodi Soulcaller, Drana, the Last Bloodchief, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Orah, Skyclave Hierophant, Order of Whiteclay, Whisper, Blood Liturgist and Draugr Necromancer although you would need to add snow lands for that.

Useful in tribe creatures: Custodi Lich, Evangel of Heliod, Taborax, Hope's Demise and Custodi Soulbinders. This is hardly a comprehensive list but just a few ideas.

No reason not to add Tymna the Weaver as a commander partner to Ravos, Soultender as it will allow you to control when you want to play her.

Some good in tribe clerics matter cards to consider are Righteous Valkyrie, Taborax, Hope's Demise, Akroma's Devoted, Battletide Alchemist and Orah, Skyclave Hierophant.

Another cleric to look at would be Moon-Blessed Cleric, just for the ability to tutor up Necropotence alone should be worth it.

Also a short overview or primer of the deck would be helpful to better understand how you want the deck to win or particular synergies or combos your aiming for.

Considering you are doing clerics and have a fair bit of life gain, I would highly recommend Righteous Valkyrie.

A very strong creature to consider is also Orah, Skyclave Hierophant. This creature will help you out a bit with recurring low cost clerics when the higher cost ones die. Very useful against sweepers as the triggers will allow you to get back more then one creature sometimes back to the field. This card pairs very well with Pyre of Heroes as another card to think of using.

For the Arena 2022 mode I would highly recommend Soulmender as it will allow you to consistently trigger life gain +1/+1 counter triggers. This pairs exceptionally well with Cleric of Life's Bond as this creature can only gain a counter once each turn, meaning you can activate the Soulmender on an opponents turn to get extra triggers you normally would not get.

And in the line of clerics, I've been enjoying this line of synergy on MTGArena if you'd care to look into it yourself:

Pyre of Heroes Righteous Valkyrie Orah, Skyclave Hierophant Hofri Ghostforge Quintorius, Field Historian

Combine those with any number of value clerics with lower CMC and you've got a nasty brew. I'm currently pushing Diamond Tier 4 with it in Standard.

Whether you're interested in it or not I figured you would enjoy the flavor/synergy. Cheers!

Is that a 2 Chronicles reference I see? Great build as always Balaam! I'm considering building a clerics tribal EDH around Orah, Skyclave Hierophant , and while shadowborn apostles are sweet I'd prefer more variety in EDH.

What are your thoughts on Taborax, Hope's Demise and Orah, Skyclave Hierophant ? Im trying Taborax instead of Dark Confidant because of cleric synergy and the prevalence of Fatal Push in the meta.

Hi Minousmancer,
sorry for my late response and thanks for your suggestions.
First: "exchange the Scoured Barrens with Shineshadow Snarl "
I've thought about it a lot, and you are right. I realy liked the aspect of getting one extra life with Scoured Barrens to trigger Cleric of Life's Bond when I don't have another cleric, or rather want to play Youthful Valkyrie . But it doesn't gives me as much tempo as Shineshadow Snarl gives me.
Second: "And I'd add more to the Baneslayer Angel s and Resplendent Marshal maybe taking out Orah, Skyclave Hierophant and Angelic Guardian s"
I swapped the one Angelic Guardian for one Baneslayer Angel - yeah, it's just the better card ...
And at the end I swapped both copies of Orah, Skyclave Hierophant for two additional copies of Resplendent Marshal . I guess Orah is for more cleric heavy decks and the mana curve looks way nicer.
Thanks again - I play this deck nearly every day and I'm really happy that it's now better than ever. :D
Have a good day~

I only have two, suggestions.

I would exchange the Scoured Barrens with Shineshadow Snarl s.

And I'd add more to the Baneslayer Angel s and Resplendent Marshal maybe taking out Orah, Skyclave Hierophant and Angelic Guardian s.

This is kinda sorta my take on an Angel deck: Anunnaki.
