Monti_Jones Thanks for the ideas. I think the types of deck we're running are fundamentally different. Graveyard interaction in my deck is quite down-played so cards like Sun Titan, Nighthowler and Femeref Enchantress don't really have as much interaction the way I play. I really only play Karador mostly for colors and to get my Eternal Witness out for multiple shots at casting Replenish

I usually aim to have my graveyard full and then do a mass recursion with Replenish or Open the Vaults. I also run the full protection suite as you noticed, so my stuff doesn't tend to end up in the graveyard as much.

I do like the idea of Heliod's Pilgrim but I'm not sure she's really any better than my other tutors. However she does have the added bonus of being a creature and being recurrable. I'll have a think on that one, as my main win cons really are Ancestral Mask and/or Ethereal Armor.

I'll take a look at your deck too. It's nice to see different takes on a familiar theme.

Hello! Neat deck! a mono-green voltron! Very neat!

You have a good start here. A lot of what I would suggest is already in here.

So here are some suggestions!

Inspiring Statuary will turn all of your artifacts into mana rocks for your bigger non-artifact spells.

Snake Umbra card draw

O-Naginata trample

Rishkar's Expertise card draw, also a free spell

Hunter's Insight LOTS of card draw

Praetor's Counsel sorta card draw, helps keep all the cards you've drawn

Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower

Triumph of the Hordes quick infect surprise win!

The sword of X and Y cycle is worth looking into if you have some cash to throw around.

Some cut suggestions!

Akroma's Memorial comes in too late to be effective really, your guy already has so much protection and if you have enough equipment he doesn't need anything else.

Strata Scythe seems nice but you need stuff that does more than one thing. This only buffs.

Whispersilk Cloak is good but you have other things doing its job. Also shroud is dangerous if you don't have any other creatures out.

Ancestral Mask you're going hard into artifacts. A small stats buff is not worth it

Asceticism your commander already does this, and you don't have enough creatures for this to be worth it

Blanchwood Armor basically, I'm just not a huge fan of stuff that just buffs. My personal Bias. You only need to get to 21. Or 10 infect.

Increasing Savagery again, just buff. You could be drawing cards or something instead

Hope some of this helps! Good luck!

Maybe also an Overrun, a Glistening Oil, and a Tainted Strike?

You might also consider something like a Bogles aura suite with Daybreak Coronet, Ethereal Armor, Ancestral Mask, Rancor, and Armadillo Cloak or Unflinching Courage with a Spectra Ward or a few Emerge Unscathed/Gods Willing effects to make it past blockers (or a Rogue's Passage).

Happy brewing!

I would personally swap the Blossoming Sands out for Tranquil Coves.

Also, you might want to squeeze some removal into the mainboard. I would keep the draw, and -1 Ancestral Mask, -1 Armament of Nyx and maybe something else. With 8 cantrips still in the deck, the likelihood of you drawing those spells is still pretty decent.

Otherwise you might want to consider something like Brainstorm or Ponder in place of, say, Abundant Growth (since a couple Evolving Wilds could do the same job). OR, go down to three-sets on your enchantments and put in both.

Hopefully that helps some! Welcome to pauper! =)

Hey, Enchantress deck with no Enchantresses ;)? This is Atraxa enchantment Voltron not Enchantress.

The Enchantress strategy is based on drawing cards by playing enchantments. This is a fine strategy with Atraxa because as a Voltron Commander playing enchantments is not only making her very scary, but also drawing you cards. Voltron means loading her up with enchantments.

These are the Enchantresses:


If you would like further help I'm happy to help,

Good luck with your deck.

Sorry nvm that's blue. Still tho, Ancestral Mask, Celestial Ancient, Graceblade Artisan, Greater Auramancy, I might be building Uril EDH, Herald of the Pantheon, Helm of the Gods, Idyllic Tutor, Kruphix's Insight, Mesa Enchantress, Mirage Mirror, Nomad Mythmaker, Sage's Reverie, Sram, Senior Edificer, Sphere of Safety, Verduran Enchantress all interact with enchantments in fun ways. Sphere of safety is especially devastating.

I also run Phelddagrif voltron, and I have to say, I never thought see another person doing it seen Rafiq is such a better choice for it. It was the very first deck I ever built. After seeing that this game had a flying hippo in it I couldn't NOT play it. Mine is enchantment based though; it uses cards like Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Ancestral Mask, Auramancer's Guise, etc.

Always nice to see another Phelddagrif enthusiast.
