Ancestral Mask Discussion

LeaPlath on the Patheon of Temur

So, Enchantress in EDH outside of white has two main elements normally.

Big Voltronable creatures and draw from enchantments.

To go with Blossoms, you have Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence and Verduran Enchantress. These give you a cycling engine, where you turn enchantments into card draw.

For big voltronable creatures, ideally you want hard to remove ones. Lone Revenant, Siege Behemoth, Sagu Mauler, Thrun, the Last Troll, Stormsurge Kraken, Sphinx of the Final Word are all good options for hexproofness. Predator Ooze and Stonehoof Chieftain are good indestructable options.

Next up, there are a lot of better enchantments you can run for value and stuff. A lot of the straight up buff enchantments are just eh at best. Ancestral Mask is generally what you want to be using to buff on something hard to kill. The gods are generally decent and had to remove, as well as being able to become creatures. Temur Ascendancy is a solid enchantment too. Bear Umbra is a buff that untaps lands and protects a creature which is nice. Goes infinite with another enchantment Aggravated Assault. I have a lot more to suggest, such as Sylvan Library but don't know your budget etc and if you want value enchantments too.

Also I would defo play some number of useful lands, ramp spells, generic draw and removal, otherwise all you can do it slam a creature and attack, no other interaction.

Heliod, God of the Sun, Pharika, God of Affliction and to a much lesser extent Fated Intervention make enchantment creature tokens and don't suck...the other cards that make similar tokens all need to be "inspired" to trigger and are kinda sucky. I see you aren't doing the voltron thing much but Helm of the Gods, Ancestral Mask, Auramancer's Guise, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ethereal Armor, & Kor Spiritdancer are so good in most enchantment decks. Happy gathering!!

No Ethereal Armor or Ancestral Mask? Both would be amazing here

Ancestral Mask could be a game changing aura... that'd be a lot of +2/+2 counters for which ever creature you target lol.

Get more creatures who tap for mana to help you get him out sooner... Birds of Paradise Elvish Mystic etc... you could also add a Rampant Growth and Cultivate... the sooner you get Uril out the better. Also, you NEED Runes of the Deus because that double strike/trample is beastly. Blessing of the Nephilim a free +5/+5 for one white mana. Battle Mastery is also good in case they get rid of your double strike.

Also consider Rogue's Passage for nonbasic land in case they get rid of your enchantments that make him unblockable. Abundance also helps if you're not getting the cards that you need by providing you the ability to choose what you draw.

Check my Uril the miststalker deck for more ideas... like Ancestral Mask ;)

I like it so far, though I would swap the black side of the deck out for either green or white. Unless you add some more black removal. Though changing over to these other colors would make your deck somewhat similar to your finest auras deck.

For green:You could add Ancestral Mask, Rancor, Keen Sense

For white:Daybreak Coronet, Ethereal Armor, Kor Spiritdancer

Wait, wait, wait... no Back to Nature ?

And for enchantment decks, beat face with Ancestral Mask!

It's a pretty straightforward deck to play, but the biggest problems are going to come from most player's sideboards.

Natural State is always going to be a threat to you, and if you see a lot of enchantment removal coming out, Auramancer is also great for your sideboard to get that game-winning Armadillo Cloak or Ancestral Mask back.
