Ajani's Chosen Discussion
1 week ago
I will say I wish your landbase could handle more basics for Earthcraft, enchanting up a Plains and tapping all your enchantments (Opalescence) to get more mana to cast more enchantments and dropping more and more of your deck onto the field is great fun.
I have a W/G enchantress deck that does that thing exactly, and the Parallax Wave + Opalescence goes infinite mana and draw with Eidolon of Blossoms + Earthcraft. Abundance stops you from milling to death (you replace the draws with reveals, so you don't technically draw out.)
Doomwake Giant is the best enchantment board wipe, and it's synergy with Living Plane is godly! I also like how easy it is to tutor up (any enchantment tutor or creature tutor). I think a second option might not hurt, but otherwise you are fine.
If you run Faith Healer, then you have an infinite with Enchanted Evening and Ajani's Chosen (Just sacrifice the Ajani's Chosen to Faith Healer to not go infinite and cause a draw because of rule 104.4b).

The Five normal Enchantresses are as follows:
The others are below:
You run the good ones, but here is what I suggest:
Wild Growth - It adds a great piece of turn one ramp
Cloudstone Curio - With an enchantress and a few low cost enchantments, you draw a ton.
Serra's Sanctum - Best land for this deck
Earthcraft - Best mana engine with this deck, use with Ajani's Chosen, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Opalescence, or Starfield of Nyx with a basic land enchanted up with Utopia Sprawl or the likes to turn each enchantment into 4+ mana, with an enchantress or two this almost goes infinite.
Banishing Light - Great Removal
Song of the Dryads - Commander Removal
Oblivion Ring - Great Removal
Sylvan Library - Great Card Advantage, combos with Abundance, note, you only have to pay life for cards it draws you, if abundance is on the field and replaces those draws, you don't have to pay life for any of them.
Mirri's Guile - Similar to Sylvan Library, but worse in most cases, luckily it is earlier in mana cost.
Carpet of Flowers - Normally makes an absurd amount of mana seeing how many people play blue in commander.
Enlightened Tutor - Nothing better than the old tutor-to-top for an instant.
Idyllic Tutor - Insanely underrated, it gets you any tool for the job then.
Solitary Confinement - Best protection, and with enchantresses you can easily keep it up indefinitely.
Stony Silence - Artifact Hate to the Max
Parallax Wave - Goes infinite with either Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx. (This works because you remove a counter to exile one creature you dont want on the field, and then in response you target Parallax Wave with it's own ability, it will bring itself back, then exile the other creature forvever. With Eidolon of Blossoms, you can draw until you hit any card in a similar manner, and you can keep bouncing Monk Idealist returning every other enchantment from your graveyard to you hand, etc. With Ajani's Chosen, you have infinite 2/2 cats.)
I love enchantress, and have played with Karametra, God of Harvests Enchantress, Dragonlord Dromoka Enchantress, Heliod, God of the Sun Enchantress, and Selvala, Explorer Returned Enchantress, which I like the most.
To the the most competitive combo-oriented enchantress deck I have built, it is below:

clayperce: Eheheh no, that wasn't the angle I was looking for but thanks anyway. I guess similarly you could utilize the free tapping from the Spinner to enable e.g. Harvest Season without risking your spidies in combat.
MagicalHacker & enpc: Yeah this was more what I had in mind. It's too bad Ajani's Chosen isn't or Ishkanah could have utilize the combo (also, Skybind letting you e.g. temporarily remove blockers in exchange for tapping tokens is pretty neat).

Interesting list. I just finished off my own series of upgrades (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/arahbo-combat-cats/). A few things I noticed about yours:
I like that you have some graveyard hate in your sideboard. Graveyard decks are a problem in my meta as well.
I also like that you're mostly sticking with the cat theme of the deck. The few non-cats I see contribute directly to your gameplan.
I would recommend swapping a couple of forests for more plains. Ideally you'll start the game with more than one source of white mana in your hand to help cast some of the low-cost, higher white devotion cards (e.g. Leonin Relic-Warder and Loam Lion).
Your mana curve is a little high for my tastes, especially in the CMC6 range. In my opinion, the best way to win with Arahbo is to start swinging in the early game for high damage. Starting with a couple of high-cost late-game cards in your hand hurts your ability to play fast. You could also use some card draw, such as Harmonize and Staff of Nin.
It seems you've over-committed to multiple game plans. I see elements of "enchantress"-style game play (e.g. Ajani's Chosen) while you only run 5 enchantments, equipment-matters with considerably more support, and life gain without many ways to gain life (e.g. Felidar Sovereign).
Mindslaver is a really fun card, but I don't notice many ways for you to repeat the effect. If you want to make it more at home in the deck, I suggest finding ways to use it multiple times. Green and White have a decent number of ways to recycle cards. Here's a quick Scryfall search to help you start: https://scryfall.com/search?q=o%3Areturn+o%3Agraveyard+commander%3AWG&unique=cards&as=grid&order=name

Tap the cat token (1), putting Arachnus Web into play targetting cat number 1. Chosen's ability triggers, getting a a 2/2 cat (2). Then just sac cat number 1 to your sac outlet (which provides the value in the loop).

Confusion in the Ranks lets you steal enchantments. Ajani's Chosen makes creatures. River Kelpie sometimes draw cards. Doomwake Giant kills creatures sometimes. Eidolon of Blossoms draws cards. Skybind can flicker the enchanted creature, which could be good for synergies lol. Thoughtrender Lamia eats hands.

If you'd like to branch out to include some non-hexproof creatures, add Alpha Authority. To maximize your enchantments, add either Ajani's Chosen, Daxos the Returned, or Celestial Ancient. For more ideas on how to get this deck to the next level, use some cards from Commander 2015. Here it is:https://magic.wizards.com/en/articles/archive/feature/commander-2015-edition-decklists-2015-11-06. Hope my suggestions help, keep up the good work!
