Sigarda Voltron Deck? TOO MANY CARDS

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on May 19, 2023, 4:49 p.m. by ImNora


I need help making cuts from this deck. It's a Sigarda, Font of Blessings Voltron deck that values pillow fort defense over offense. Basically, slowly chip away at enemies with commander damage while hiding in a really nice pillow fort where all your stuff is hard to remove due to hexproof from Sigarda, Font of Blessings.

Any opinions/recommendations are appreciated.

I think you chose the wrong commander for a voltron strategy. Sigarda, Font of Blessings appears to lend herself to a human/angel tribal Archetype. Sigarda, Host of Herons is more suited to voltron IMO.

Yeah, I know she's not exactly intended for Voltron. At my LGS, people run a lot of targeted enchantment and artifact removal and creature heavy decks so it makes it difficult to survive with a Voltron deck since they usually can't do a lot of blocking. That's why I figured hexproof Sphere of Safety or hexproof Sandwurm Convergence would be great. There's a lot of politics at the table so with Voltron decks that get strong fast, I just get piled on and die.

I'm very familiar with Sigarda, Host of Herons as im one of the aforementioned pilers who want to stop the Volton nightmare from coming online. Stax is the key. Build the deck anticipating the animosity from the table by incorporating cards like Crawlspace, Silent Arbiter, Karmic Justice, Ghostly Prison, and Winds of Rath.

Just gotta be more hostile to make people think twice.

Eventually the Sigarda player of our group changed her out for something different altogether - he got tired of always being dog piled on. I guess the lesson from that is don't make the deck too linear and easy to predict.
