2020 update:

It seems that interest in cEDH style decks at my LGS has waned in recent times, while we still see some very powerful brews from fairly often, seldom are they in the realms of what we would term 'degenerate', with that said, my interest in this deck hasn't waned. If I see new cards that look helpful or come up with ideas to improve on the brew I will happily take another look and make changes where necessary.

Controversial outs: Kodama's Reach and Cultivate. These two cards are auto includes in any of my decks that have green in them, however in this deck if you want the commander to enter play ASAP so you can spend the next few turns controlling the board where needed, recognizing that mana acceleration is still important Talisman of Curiosity is in. The activated ability on Shadowspear also acts as an alternative to Arcane Lighthouse while also giving this deck a touch of life gain, something it was desperately missing.

Other swap was 1 Forest for Labyrinth of Skophos. I don't have extensive actual play using this card but on paper it seems quite versatile, since we're down 2 green cards 9 forests and 8 duals should still be plenty.

I love this style of enchantress. It's a neat approach, going for the token generation!
I think having a way to get around hexproof/indestructible might be helpful for this deck. Bonds of Mortality and Arcane Lighthouse come to mind.
The repeatable tutor potential of Starfield of Nyx and Sterling Grove is also something to consider. They make a perfect target for Plea for Guidance and then you can tutor a card every turn after. A solid way to get the divine visitation, token doublers, and itlimoc all out.
Second Harvest, while a one-off, could be another game changer.
Also, if you have divine visitation out, Thopter Assembly could be a funny way to make an inordinate amount of angles.
Really enjoyed looking through the deck!

Gidgetimer on Do cards that counteract hexproof ...

Cards are always treated as if they have the current oracle text (from {https://gatherer.wizards.com/](https://gatherer.wizards.com/) though other sites such as scryfall.com are kept updated too) regardless of what is printed on them. In the case of Alexi's Cloak the oracle text is "Enchanted creature has shroud." Most older cards with keyword abilities described are going to have their oracle text changed to have that ability. Though some cards such as Armadillo Cloak seem to have a keyword ability , but their ability functions differently. It is always a good idea to check.

TL:DR; Alexi's Cloak grants shroud and it will be removed with Arcane Lighthouse . Most older cards will function the same way. It is always a good idea to check gatherer for oracle text.

For example, if I were to use a card like Arcane Lighthouse while a creature is protected by Alexi's Cloak , which has a description that matches shroud, but the description does not specifically mention shroud, presumably because it was printed before the term shroud began to be used, would the protected creature be immune to the effect? or no?

Jubilation I've been trying to fit it in ever since I found that out. I'm just not 100% sure what to take out for it.

However that being said I'm not if this deck truly needs it. Glaring Spotlight does almost the same thing, minus the indestructible effect, for a static effect that doesn't use any mana. Also, keep in mind Arcane Lighthouse and Detection Tower are pretty much the same thing. Just with them being lands they aren't dead cards if I don't need to remove hexproof or shroud.

I do have some utility to remove problem creatures with indestructible. Toxic Deluge , Ashes to Ashes , Dictate of Erebos and, Grave Pact .

Cut Arcane Lighthouse you are running very little targeted removal.

RXPK: Thanks for the feedback!

I am running Arcane Lighthouse , which is functionally better, in my opinion. Also, from hundreds of games, I’ve rarely had a chance to use it.

However, I used to run Detection Tower for redundancy, and Glaring Spotlight , but they were wasted slots, from my experience.
