Assuming the reserve is still viable. What cards are most expecting to see as staple reserve cards?

Foreign wives and uzzah, probably a lot more covenants, like I am creator since we have book of the covenant now

Just the one card, dont worry about the rest, and it's very common

Oh good, I just really didn't like that set before when I had it...nothing in it was even decent...I didn't even use it with my kids.

Nah, I am Creator goes in main deck. I am Holy is a good option though.

Why main deck? It's dead most the game and most decks cant search for it, so put it in reserve to only get with book of the cov. If you need it.  To me it's the perfect reserve covenant

Because it's a consistencey piece.
Covenant with Death. That is all.

How is it more consistant in main deck compared to in the reserve when book can pull it from reserve at no cost?

As long as Auto and Samuel are for some reason allowed to still be around, I am Creator will too. Main deck means you don't need Book, and it frees up a precious reserve space.

I've tried Creator in Reserve with Book and I don't think it's worth it. I'm actually leaning towards Cov w Prayer in Reserve if you're running Book. Holy is a good option too. And the one that can take a site or fortress (Palestine, maybe?) might be a good Babel counter.

Of course, my main deck has about 4 natural ways to 1st turn Music Leader, so Creator isn't exactly optimal for me anyways.

True assuming you are building a specific deck that doesn't utilize Book, but if you did go that route, I could see Book being useful as you said and also Creator.  I don't see why Auto and/or Samuel will ever be banned???? (Not to change the topic of this thread) I am just assuming there has not been any talk of this.... ???

I firmly disagree on I Am Creator maindeck when EVERY deck should run Book. T1 Book is the same as T1 IAC

So Book main deck then I am Creator in reserve? (I am NOT saying every deck, but one built with book somewhat in mind)

Unless a deck relies extremely heavily on Reserve shenanigans and really needs the slots, every deck should be running Book with IaC and YWR in Reserve.

I've got a deck with Road, Wages, and Book all in it and I've got 5 covenants total (3 in Reserve) so you can certainly squeeze it all in. Although this deck is definitely an outlier as far as shenanigans go.

Edit: Made a recent adjustment to the deck and now have 6 covenants total with 4 in Reserve.
