All That Glitters Discussion
15 hours ago
As a personal take, I don't really like the Mycosynth Lattice. It only marginally increases the value of Time Sieve and All That Glitters. If you draw into it without those two cards, you have a six mana "do nothing" card that really opens you up to artifact wipes and the Stony Silence effects. And truly, if you are taking extra turns with the sieve because of the lattice, you should be winning that game anyways if you have the opportunity to sacrifice 5 permanents and it not set you back too much.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
I'll first give my opinion on the direction you've taken your deck and then if you would like me to continue I'll give some suggestions in another comment of other ways to use Estrid as Commander. You're trying to combine +1/+1 counter creature strategies, enchant creature auras and equipment with a noncreature Commander. There's problems because these strategies are much better when your Commander is a creature since then it can be the main focus of boosting it's power with counters/auras/equipment.
I don't think the +1/+1 counters creature strategies are good with Estrid as Commander. Because Estrid isn't a creature and doesn't interact with creatures with counters. Estrid not being a creature means you can't put +1/+1 counters on her and make her a threat to do Commander damage. That's a big drawback if you can't use your Commander with +1/+1 counter strategies. Putting masks on creatures to protect them is fine, but this interaction doesn't seem particularly that good or needed.
Another thing I don't like about counter strategies with creatures with Estrid is these strategies don't need enchantments. With Estrid enchantments should be the focus of your deck especially with proliferate because of her -7 ultimate can be a powerful way to cheat enchantments onto the battlefield, but only if you're playing a lot of them. If not taking advantage of Estrid's -7 ultimate then proliferate is not doing much with her.
I think with Estrid as Commander Doubling Season effects would be better to use with Planeswalkers rather than +1/+1 counters with creatures. As Foretold is a good reason to want to proliferate, but not with creatures, with Planeswalkers and enchantments. Planeswalkers and enchantments have good interactions, much better than creatures with counters and enchantments.
Rafiq of the Many is an example of Bant Commander that could be good with +1/+1 counters creature strategies because he's a creature and double strike becomes scary for your opponents when Rafiq has a lot of power. Rafiq is considered a voltron Commander. Voltron means that you enchant/equip or place counters on a single creature and that creature is your win condition doing damage to your opponents, hopefully Commander damage. With Rafiq as Commander you could better combine the main counters creature strategies with secondary aura and equipment strategies. Shield of the Oversoul, Steel of the Godhead, Favor of the Overbeing, Rancor is a small, but powerful package of auras with Rafiq and voltron strategies.
Jenara, Asura of War like Rafiq has evasion, flying, but unlike Rafiq she can put counters on herself which is a bonus especially with Simic Ascendancy. This could make her a good Bant voltron Commander with counter creature strategies because she's a creature who you want to target with other cards to place counters on her and proliferate.
Tuvasa the Sunlit is another Bant voltron Commander, but unlike Rafiq and Jenara she benefits, really needs, a lot of aura enchantments. This doesn't mean you couldn't play counter strategies also, but they shouldn't be the main strategy, auras should. Auras that are good with her are the same ones with Rafiq, but also Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, All That Glitters. Auras that give a creature more power the more enchantments you and/or opponents have on the battlefield.
If you would like I can continue with more advice.
Good luck with your deck.

This deck feels sort of unfocused. Specifically, Mindcrank and you choice in card draw spells (unless you're tryna mill someone out, in which case take a look at Paranoid Delusions) seem counter-intuitive. I would recommend thinking about what you want to do every turn.
Turn 1: drop an unblockable creature.
Turn 2: either pump it up or, if possible, play Invisible Stalker.
Turn 3: pump it up more and keep drawing cards off of Curiosity and the like.

Interesting! I hadn't considered Library of Leng before - I definitely like that interaction with Solitary Confinement coupled with the 'no max hand size' Thought Vessel style redundancy. I just replaced Empyrial Armor to make way for All That Glitters, but this has me thinking that I should possibly put it back, perhaps in place of Battle Mastery.
Cool that you went down the shimmer storm route. This deck is mean enough + I don't think my friends would forgive me if I went down the competitive Zur path, heh.

The more modern version of Ethereal Armor is All That Glitters. It's pretty cool to buff your creatures =]

I'd try something like
3x Hero of the Pride
2x Reverent Hoplite
4x Banishing Light
4x Indomitable Will
This might be a little more competitive to start. I wouldn't worry about the Altar of the Pantheon at all. Yes, it boosts devotion but you don't need mana fixing and you're only playing white so your devotion should always be good. You might even be able to cut down to 22 lands because you'll want to be fast with this deck. All that Glitters should be great because you'll have a lot of enchantments, and Shepherd of the Flock's adventure will let you save anything from removal, including Heliod.

Yo sam171z, haven't really thought about adding in more interaction as this is more of a voltron based deck. But Silence may go in as I really do favor that card a lot. I'm pretty anti protection spells in this deck as I am the threat haha, I have a foil All That Glitters on my table right now but don't really know what to cut for it, plus I really like the low curve haha. Blessing of the Nephilim is a pet card because it looks so dang beautiful foiled. Thanks for the feedback!
