Love the deck! +1!

What do you think about Archetype of Endurance for protection (and also can get out the protection of the opponents' creatures)?

Also i think that Archon of Valor's Reach can be a nice on in this deck.

Have you heard of Whitemane Lion ? With Chulane it's a 2 mana repeatable instant speed growth spiral. On a similar note Stonecloaker does a similar thing however it also eats cards from graves at instant speed. If you're feeling spiky you can combine these cards with Aluren to draw your entire library and drop every land into play. It shouldn't be hard to win from there with Laboratory Maniac , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , or even Altar of the Brood . Just remember Chulane's ability is mandatory so you'll have to remove him before you go for the win or you might draw yourself to death.

There are a few hate cards I'm surprised you haven't included like Gaddock Teeg , Remorseful Cleric , Containment Priest , Leonin Arbiter , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Rest in Peace , Archon of Valor's Reach , and Aura Shards . The newer Ranger-Captain of Eos pulls his weight as well by grabbing dorks and accessory creatures like Giant Killer while having the ability to entirely shut down non-creature spells which is great for comboing out that turn or just preventing a board wipe from an opponent on their turn.

Simple tax effects as well give you lots of time to set up Chulane and start slamming creatures down for some great value. Cards like Aura of Silence , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Vryn Wingmare , Thorn of Amethyst , Suppression Field , Kataki, War's Wage , Energy Flux , etc.

I think flash is the greatest strength a creature based deck can have so I suggest trying out Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Vedalken Orrery , Leyline of Anticipation , or Yeva, Nature's Herald to go alongside your Teferi.

Lastly you should include Eternal Witness as some grave recursion and you can abuse the body via bonce or Sun Titan.

Thanks for the feedback Suffer. I really like your suggestions of Charming Prince and Spellseeker . I think i'm going to switch out 2 of my creatures for those 2. As for Archon of Valor's Reach and Gulf Squid , I think, while powerful, are not the direction I want to take.

This is a very focused and streamlined tempo list. Only one card sticks out as weak: Wall of Blossoms. My suggestions for an upgrade would be: Charming Prince , Spellseeker , Archon of Valor's Reach or Gulf Squid .

I play control/stax with Chulane. Been testing Archon of Valor's Reach .

For your build, Overrun is the way to go. Cut 2 lands, tweak a few of the miscellaneous creatures and you have a good list.

Season of Growth is one of my new favorite cards in my Enchantment deck--Especially If I'm running this many auras.

Additionally, Retether can make for one-shot commander knockouts after your commander gets burnt a couple times.

You should consider at least Unquestioned Authority for creature evasion if you're going for Voltron wins.

One Artifact means you should really punish people with artifacts: Stony Silence , Collector Ouphe , and Seeds of Innocence are all crushers for decks that rely on rock ramp spells. Archon of Valor's Reach is my favorite card in my bant enchantress deck. It does control effects on certain decks (I tend to pick instants or artifacts, but sorcery is a good pick if you're afraid of boardwipes. Planeswalker is only good against decks that are themed that way.) AND it doubles as a flying vigilance body to put auras on.

Finally, I don't think you need this many lands. Your curve is pretty low and you have a ton of ramp-chantments. A basic or three could probably get cut.

Hope that helps! keep building (and definitely consider Serra's Sanctum . Pricey, but just as relevant to your deck as Gaea's Cradle is to elfball.)

Hi Kiyomei,

Very nice deck you got there. Please, allow me to give some input as a fellow cEDH player. First off, I see all stax cards in your deck there is but very few removals. Hence, I kindly would like to share some input on balancing the decks versatility.

I hope this was insightful to you. And no, I am not playing Derevi myself ;) But I do actually play a lot against it.

Cheers, Danda
