Alseid of Life's Bounty Discussion

abby315 on Umori, the Enchantress

Pretty cool idea! Shame you can't get Setessan Champion in with the Umori clause, I always hated that she's not an enchantment creature!

I wonder if Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea would be a decent beater and perhaps better protection than Alseid of Life's Bounty, since you don't need to hold up mana to get the benefit?

Also not sure if Omen of the Hunt is necessary/good; seems like you'll be tapping out most of the time to deal with opponent's threats on T3. Could be two more The Birth of Meletis to help against aggro, and maybe there are your two slots for Callaphe instead of Alseid.

Do love the idea so hope you find success with it!

HARDsofty Awesome deck man. Got some suggestions; you said those Boros elite are in there for early blockers; unless you prefer their late game offensiveness, I'd maybe consider running Dryad Militant, Resolute Watchdog, Giant Killer, Dauntless Bodyguard, Skymarcher Aspirant or Alseid of Life's Bounty. Extra utility that'll protect other beaters/remove threats late game. Even Thraben Inspector, for that card draw.

Also, Blessed Alliance over Gideon's Triumph?

Giver of Runes, in my opinion, is superior to Alseid of Life's Bounty. Proliferate would be appreciated in this deck, and I question your non-usage of Ramos, Dragon Engine as a commander. However, it is a cool deck idea, and I wish you the ebst of luck with it!

ShadowAblaze on Aggro Enchantments

Well. Here's what I got on white.

Sigarda's Aid is terrific if you have a lot of auras. Ethereal Armor also gets better the more enchantments you have. Technically, there are 3 more enchantress cards: Satyr Enchanter, Verduran Enchantress, and Mesa Enchantress.

Alseid of Life's Bounty adds to the enchantments on the field and can be used to save a creature or get damage through. Hyena Umbra is good if they aren't running exile or -1/-1 effects. Pentarch Ward can be good as well. Shield of the Oversoul will make a Bogle indestructible. Privileged Position protects everything else.

Deafening Silence can slow down your opponents (Eidolon of Rhetoric and Rule of Law are a higher cmc versions) and Shapers' Sanctuary can at least let you draw. Ghostly Prison can be used against aggro decks.

If you were to run Snow-Covered lands for your basics, you could probably play On Thin Ice and maybe Dead of Winter for removal. Otherwise, Banishing Light and Oblivion Ring are strong.

You can sideboard Knight of Autumn, Rest in Peace, or Solemnity now. It is safer to sideboard Leyline of Sanctity as well.

Cards I didn't mention before: Rancor = Amazing, Unbridled Growth is mana fixing but not ramp like Utopia Sprawl. Hydra's Growth is strong but you have to slow them down a lot for it to work. Sixth Sense is card draw if you consistently hit.

In the end you can play whatever colors, I just think red offers the least and isn't necessary due to the hybrid mana of Obosh, the Preypiercer.

Hi there!

A few suggestions to improve your list:

Hope that helps.

Good luck brewing.

Nice deck (+1). I really like the Lurrus of the Dream-Den + Martyr of Sands combo. Have you considered Alseid of Life's Bounty, Dauntless Bodyguard, or Resolute Watchdog to protect your creatures or provide them with another way to get through? Speaking of getting through, Augur il-Vec is a pretty good target equipment. Hope this helps.

Depending on how your manabase is, you could run some combination of Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Underworld Dreams as your win conditions. As for protection, I'd either lean into Alseid of Life's Bounty or Regrowth effects.

MrBoombastic on bant enchantments

I'd go for Starlit Mantle, if you feel like you miss a protection effect, as it is also an enchantment.

First thing I'd do though, is to find out what you want the deck to do. Is it aggro/beatdown, more midrangey/grindy, control etc.? Right now the deck is kinda all over the place. Many of the cards seem to be here only because they are strong enchantments, not because they have good synergy with the rest of the deck. An aura deck is heavily based on synergy. Standard lacks cards like

  • Kiora Bests the Sea God is a very strong card, but it seems way too slow here and lacks synergy.

  • Colossification is a bad card. Don't play it.

  • Shark Typhoon is also an awkward fit. From what I've seen, it works best in control or cycling shells. Same goes for Ominous Seas and Omen of the Sea.

  • Primal Empathy is a cool card. I've wanted to build something with it myself, but I don't know if it's actually playable in constructed. It needs for itself AND a creature to stay in play for a whole turn before it does anything. That's risky.

  • Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath is also an amazing card, but again doesn't fit the deck. If you want creatures to enchant, you don't want ones that go straight to the yard and will stay there for a while.

  • Hypnotic Sprite isn't a great creature. Either side is pretty mediocre. Being a fairly cheap flier is okay, but the cost is quite restrictive and I'm sure you can find better. The counter side is too situational and this doesn't look like a deck that wants to keep mana open for a potential counter.

The way I see it, you can go one of two ways:

  1. An aura deck that plays small dudes and quickly beefs them up ala GW Auras. For that to work you need to lower the curve with synergistic creatures like the full 4x Alseid of Life's Bounty, Transcendent Envoy and Spectral Sailor. Sailor is an evasive 1-drop, which makes Staggering Insight A LOT better. Also go way heavier on the cheap auras, 4x All That Glitters etc. You might want to look at the GW Auras deck for inspiration.

  2. Take out the creature + auras package and make a more traditional bant control deck, that plays some big enchantmens like Kiora Bests the Sea God and/or Shark Typhoon as finishers.

Hope that helps.

Good luck brewing.
