    This was the first rare card i ever received, and the theme for the first deck i ever built from scratch. Now that i know a little more about the game since then, i can’t wait to see what i can do with it :D

    • Melissa Juice

      Get ’em, Tiger.

  • Garrison Tran

    sean platt needed this card in spellslingers S3E1

  • dieforsins

    Lol. They really love elves and enchantment. Keep trying to shove it in the meta ” PLAY WITH ME! I’LL BE GOOD THIS SEASON”.
    Calm down bro, we already went through this.

  • Stef

    Lol I had a feeling…

  • xermaster123

    standard enchantments will rule., this, starfield, the 2 drop life gainer and the rest.

    • DJ Pad

      Don’t forget the gods….

  • Blahblahblahbla

    One of my favorite cards of all time.. Now we just need an Argothian Enchantress reprint so I can play modern enchantress for real…

  • Deadly Berry

    I guess this could be viable if your Herald of the Pantheon survives enough to let you cast it for 4 mana. We know that won’t happen.

    • Mightfo

      Honestly, if you’re spending turn 2/3 casting removal for a 2 drop, Enchantress is perfectly fine with that. You’re not going fast or focusing on value, so enchantress is more likely to get to play the long game against you.

      • Sam

        red decks are going to have up to 8 1 mana 2 damage spells in them. you can spend turn 3 casting a goblin piledriver AND wild slash and position yourself firmly in the lead.

        • Mightfo

          Oh, of course. I was talking about pretty much everything except red decks, since most decks are pretty midrangey. Sigil+herald is pretty weak against red, but my point stands that herald->sigil will be relevant in a ton of matchups. But yeah, vs red not so much. Enchantress has other nice spells vs red like nyx-fleece ram, oppressive rays, courser and such though.

          • Sam

            frankly, non-red decks can just pack in some sideboard enchantment hate like back to nature. nyx-fleece will not be good enough to stop piledriver and rabblemaster.
            after rotation, there likely wont be enough enchantment support to be a full-fledged archetype unless the bring back the quests from zendikar.
            that being said, sigil is extremely powerful in a slow, grindy format that doesn’t have a lot of enchantment hate.

    Shouldn’t this be legendary? I mean, it’s a throne.

    • You say that like this is new.

      • Jordan

        to some people it is. I missed this because I was in my second tour of Iraq. Not everybody has every answer.

        • I’m not saying that I don’t appreciate you fighting for your country, but this card came out 6 years ago.

          • Jordan

            Im not saying I want you too :) That’s how I define the period I was out of country and unable to keep up with new cards that came out during that period. I was in 2008-2009 which was 6-7 years ago. I dont know those blocks or even read over them. And surprisingly I’ve never heard of this card or seen it played before.

        • LightandFire676

          You rock, man. Welcome back to mtg. :)

          • Jordan

            lol thanks. Wasn’t my intent for this convo :) Going on 20 years of mtg playing (minus the time out of country) Here’s to another 20.

    • Mightfo

      It’s a sigil of it, not the actual throne, so it shouldn’t be legendary. Unless I misremember Alara lore.

      • Jordan

        Now that’s interesting. However, it’s still something red decks just lose to if they get it going.

  • p26man

    Cannot be standard competitive, but sweet limited bomb!

    • Sam

      i wouldn’t be so sure. there very easily could be an abzan constellation deck based around doomwake, eidolon of blossoms and this. there’s plenty of removal in abzan and the engine is clearly there.

    • richardshort2001

      can drop on turn 3 in a devotion deck. make multiple angels turn 4.

  • Vixin Xiviir

    Holy dang. They reprinted it.

  • Happy The Cat
