Aegis of the Gods Discussion

Enuhal on cEDH Enchantress

Great Decklist! I was looking for an EDH Tuvasa list similiar to Legacy Enchantress, and this one is the most convincing I've seen so far. I hope you will keep it up to date!

Some cards I would love to hear your thoughts on: I noticed that you're not running a GY-hate card like Ground Seal or Rest in Peace. Is this just a meta call?

What would be some good cards to replace Compost or Carpet of Flowers if these don't work in a specific playgroup (unlikely as it may seem)?

Any thoughts on a hexproof effect for yourself, such as Leyline of Sanctity or Aegis of the Gods?

If artifacts are prevalent in a given meta, would Energy Flux be a good call? If yes, which card could be taken out for it?

Lastly - legacy enchantress usually runs some kind of additional defense, such as Solitary Confinement or Energy Field. Of course, these are slower compared to Elephant Grass, but I still think one of these might be good if you're not surrounded by combo decks that completely go around the defenses provided by these cards. I'd be interested to know why you aren't running any of these.

Yeah Aegis of the Gods is pretty good, I already have 2. Might up the quantity tho.

If you want hexproof, Aegis of the Gods is probably better. Depends completely on your meta.

Psychic Corrosion seems great! I somehow missed it earlier. It is only a fraction of the cost and targets both of my opponents. Is there any drawback except it takes longer that I don't see?

Leyline of Sanctity is definitely not affordable. And Aegis of the Gods won't survive very long against a red burn. Orbs of Warding seems ok. But it probably takes to long to get it out. It is very cheap, therefore a sideboard option.

Fog Bank: While I really like it as a Card it somehow destroys the beauty of a creatureless Deck.

List of counter-reasons:

  • She can be targeted by removal.

  • CMC 5, 5C humans wants to be in a position to win or have already one by turn 5.

  • Aegis of the Gods already gives you hexproof and is a 2CMC human, though it is excluded from many competitive lists anyway.

  • She does not grant boardwipe evasion, excluding Settle the Wreckage effects, Xathrid Necromancer however, does.

  • Humans would rather have card draw than a mana sink.

  • The extra lands needed to cast her on a regular basis wouldn't help to cast anything in the else deck, and Aether Vial on 5 wouldn't do anything but help cast her.

  • What would you take out for her? Typically people side in boardwipes, not targetive removal like push, and the argument about her not having hexproof is relevant also.

I hope this answers your question. :)

UR2L8 Yeah, I'd honestly say Blood Artist is better, though in a meta with a lot of player hexproof/shroud effects, like Leyline of Sanctity/Witchbane Orb/Aegis of the Gods/Solitary Confinement/True Believer then sine the cutthroat doesn't target, it would in fact be better.

Phaetion That's the same problem I had when I had Karametra, God of Harvests,Krond the Dawn-Clad,Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist enchantress deck.

Krond was the first cmdr in the spot, losely half auras half enchantments. I got frustrated on how greedy Krond is with her CMC color cost so I decided to switch.

Mirri was the second cmdr of the deck, mostly auras without vigilince. If I had a vigilence card, I would wait for Predatory Urge so I can use her as removal & tap her so I can use her effectively. As I played her more I lost alot of power without having any creature left ot enchant.

Karametra was the 3rd & final cmdr of the deck, mostly enchantment permanents on the board(hardly any auras), I cast as many enchantments as I could while protecting myself with Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Sigarda, Host of Herons and Shalai, Voice of Plenty. It usually came down to me top decking a Starfield of Nyx to win.

Tuvasa, the Sunlit gave me what I wanted in a enchantress commander. It beefs itself up with the amount of enchantments I have out on the field as well as giving me that extra card once a turn. Let's also not forget how big she/he gets with Enchanted Evening. He/she also let's me use the color blue to put in powerful blue enchantments in the deck without sacrificing the powerlevel of my previous deck. I also trough in some decent auras that let me swing in without him/her getting chump blocked. I have to test her/him out more but for the most part, Estrid is in there to protect cards like Serra's Sanctum, My cmdr & any other enchantment that valuable to the win con.

Last but not least, let's talk about the lockdown I improved upon. Sterling Grove + Privileged Position = Can't target my stuff + Aegis of the Gods = Can't target me or my jank + Avacyn, Angel of Hope = Rift me or Exile my entire board + Enchanted Evening = Rift, Exile the entire board or concede.

Sounds cocky but it wins games if people let my board get that dumb.
