Well, first of all, I've got to say I'm pretty surprised to not see Command Tower in here. Who can argue with one mana of any colour for no drawback? Likewise, you'd probably also appreciate City of Brass and Mana Confluence - with 40 life, their drawbacks are virtually nil.

On the nonland side of things, you might like to give Bringer of the Black Dawn a shot. He comes with a free Vampiric Tutor every turn and can be dropped for only five mana! Also, I get the inclusion of Maze Glider, but you'd certainly be better off with Archetype of Imagination - same converted mana cost, same power, but he guarantees your creatures will be unblockable and he even helps out any monocoloured creatures you might have. Give it a try!

Some ideas in no particular order, and by no means should you use all of them: Fell the Mighty, Meekstone, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, Vivien Reid, Primal Rage, Archetype of Imagination, Leyline of Anticipation, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Concordant Crossroads, Enlightened Tutor, Back from the Brink, Reinforcements, Return to the Ranks, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, Tree of Redemption, Wall of Frost, Wall of Ice, Wall of Junk, Wall of Shards.

I'd cut Venser, the Sojourner, Mystic Remora, Sylvan Library, Natural State, Mana Leak, Preordain, Ponder, Fragmentize, Beast Whisperer, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Orator of Ojutai, Portcullis Vine, Logic Knot.

I will note, it looks like you're playing in a highly competitive meta (Ponder, Sylvan Library, Flusterstorm, Carpet of Flowers, etc). My alterations are decidedly for a slower meta, because in my experience combat victories are a function of the speed of your opponents. Regardless, I have no idea how Arcades functions in cEDH, so take all of my recommendations with a grain of salt.

What kind of deck is this? It seems pretty lackluster for an enchantress deck, and there are several cards in here that don't really work for the conventional enchantress strategy. I'm going to assume this is Voltron, given that most of the Tuvasa decks are. So, with the assumption of a Voltron deck I'll recommend things, and if that is not your goal, then let me know and i can adjust my recommendations. The general key to Tuvasa Voltron Enchantress is use enchantress effects to rip through your deck to get enchantments that you can cast to draw more enchantments. So for one, all the enchantresses: Argothian Enchantress Satyr Enchanter Verduran Enchantress Also, we can include effects that directly aid the voltron strategy such as Kor Spiritdancer Sram, Senior Edificer

So now looking at what doesn't super work with this strategy: Archetype of Imagination doesn't really work for this strategy. It's 6 CMC for a constellation trigger and "evasion" while many aura's do this but better. Aqueous Form does this in spades for 1, which is better for netting multiple enchantress triggers a turn. In fact a good number of the creature's here can be dropped, such as Arixmethes, Selkie, Daxos, Elderwood Scion, Omnivore, Slime, and Yavimaya Enchantress. Would probably replace these with enchantresses and a Laboratory Maniac

As far as instants, some other tutors would be good, as well as some tutors that can hit creatures so you can more consistently grab other enchantresses, so Worldly Tutor and Eladamri's Call both reasonably fill that niche. Some counter-magic to stop your opponents from resolving sweepers can also help, especially VS Cyclonic Rift and other such effects that can't be stopped via hexproof or indestructible. Of course, running sweepers of your own is also a good idea.

Skipping lands, cuz improving the landbase is a given, and money is hard.

I would highly recommend adding Estrid back to this. Mask Tokens are actually quite borked when they come down each turn, triggering constellation, pumping Tuvasa, and protecting permanents.

Your Sorceries are... fine. but I would recommend taking out stuff like Martial Coup and Rebirth for good ol fasioned WOG and Austere Command. Citywide Bust also seems good as pretty much none of your creatures fulfill that condition, and the ones that do can be protected or you can just allow to die.

As far as enchantments, pretty much all the mana amp aura's can be dropped. these were in the pre-con for Estrid, but you'd be better off running cantrip aura's in their place. Cantrip Aura's give you another draw, and are cheap, which means you can get through your deck faster. Dictate of Kruphix, Bounty of the Luxa, Ground Seal, Starfield, Ever-Watching Threshold, and Sigil can come out if you want to go full into the voltron strat, though out of those, Sigil can play into the strat.

As far as artifacts, you'll want more fast mana, and probably Alhammarret's Archive for enhancing your value from your draws.

Archetype of Imagination might be nice, as well as Levitation or Wonder. Halimar Tidecaller isn't the best option because it only affects your land creatures, and you only have 1 card in the deck that makes lands into creatures.

Also Hall of the Bandit Lord to grant Bruna haste as haste enablers are rare in Azorius colors.

Skyblinder Staff effectively makes Bruna unblockable except by creatures with Reach. Archetype of Imagination does the same though I would not run it for it's high cost.

Removing 6 cards to smooth the deck due to their high casting cost. Creeping Renaissance, Archetype of Imagination, Marshal's Anthem, Winds of Rath, Loyal Drake, Loyal Guardian

ZendikariWol: This is not a stax deck more so pillowfort while a strategy is put into place. Counterspells for specific board wipes, effects that protect my stuff all the while looking like I have a fort with no artillery, then a Ancestral Mask, or Helm of the Gods or Tuvasa, the Sunlit for raw power, or infinite mana with Estrid and something like Heliod, God of the Sun, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, or Nylea, God of the Hunt. Sigil of the Empty Throne and Luminarch Ascension as individual threats, and Starfield of Nyx/ Opalescence as surprises after a creature board wipe. Extra lulz with Archetype of Imagination in play in my flyer heavy meta. Right now after play testing this deck did not lose a single 1v1 match, and the only reason I don't run Darksteel Mutation is because I only have two cards that get combat damage to go around an indestructible blocker reliably, so turning their commander into a land is more effective. Rhystic Study has been hard to come by but is a good include if I can find one.
