I'm here as requested. I'll take a more in depth look later when I have time. For now just take my +1 and initial thoughts. Demon of Dark Schemes and Ashes of the Abhorrent can do work with Teysa. Fumigate is also an amazing card. Martyr's Bond is also another Dictate effect.

Also, fancy meeting you here Weiss

Yo meatman87, for a competitive Tuvasa Enchantress deck, I would definitely do some reworks and go a bit more into the taxing route. Some cards I would add in already that comes to mind is:

I would also reconsider adding in Mystic Remora , it is a great card that slows down other competitive players or force you to gain card draw which is important. You should also consider other avenues to winning with Tuvasa as your 3rd line to winning if all else fails. You can do something akin to Enchanted Evening / Aura Thief or Cleansing Meditation . Three part combo with that as well as Calming Verse / Faith's Reward / Teferi's Protection . Enchanted Evening also goes well to make infinite tokesn with Ajani's Chosen .

Another line you can also go for in the Blind Obedience + Bloom Tender / Pemmin's Aura / Freed from the Real infinite extortion win. There are also cards that don't make sense with the current build so these would be the cards I would recommend cutting.

The cards I mentioned above either doesn't have a place in the deck your going for or isn't further accelerating your game plan. What you want to do assuming is to accumulate resources and value ahead of your opponent while preventing them to do anything. I would also say that you wouldn't actually need JTMS, Mother of Runes or Noble Hierarch as they won't trigger your draw. You also might want to consider adding in a High Market to have a kill switch for your Academy Rector . You have a couple avenues of fetching for it in the forms of Crop Rotation as well as Wargate when you add the latter in. Sylvan Scrying might also not be a bad add in as it can fetch you your Reliquary Tower / Serra's Sanctum and if you want to consider adding in Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , those are all valuable targets.

Lemme know if you have any questions on the card reasoning or if somehting doesn't make sense to ya!~

Darkshadow327 Thanks for your suggestions.

Teysa Karlov is extremely powerful in this deck for one reason - Athreos, God of Passage . His ability is a death trigger, so the player I picked would need to pay 6 lifes to prevent me from getting back the creature!

The 3 new RNA cards are in my buy list and I'm looking to acquire them for sure. I'll see if I've room to fit them in then.

Martyr's Bond , Oversold Cemetery and Ashes of the Abhorrent were all considered in my initial iterations of this deck but subsequently axed to make space for other cards.

I may consider dropping Gifted Aetherborn for Teysa or some of the new cards though. Tough decisions ahead!

Hi! Some ideas. Mana curve is low so you don't need 24 lands. 20-22 is enough. It depends on your budget but if you want to make your deck more reliable you should take a look at Cavern of Souls and Aether Vial . Your creatures need protection so Brave the Elements would be a nice idea. Path to Exile is your removal (4 copies strongly recommended). A couple of enchantments to boost your creatures: Honor of the Pure and Radiant Destiny . Creatures: 4x Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip - transforms fast, grows fast, helps to transform Westvale Abbey  Flip. Metallic Mimic - cheap and useful. Eldrazi Monument - finisher. Sideboard: Grafdigger's Cage , and Ashes of the Abhorrent , Rest in Peace , Relic of Progenitus (graveyard hate). Good luck!

Teysa Karlov is really a build around card; unfortunately, I just don't see enough death triggers here to make her work.

There are some cards from RNA that I really love though.

Other noteworthy cards are Martyr's Bond , Oversold Cemetery and Ashes of the Abhorrent .

For cuts I'd say remove what isn't really working. Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn do seem like the most lackluster cards in here though.

Yo Byuante

Thank you for the suggestions! I will definitely consider AEther Barrier and Ashes of the Abhorrent those are really good flex card spots that I missed out on. The other one I was actually consider running is Energy Flux .

Counterbalance is in and out of the deck before, and is actually a flex spot. I value aura's a tad bit more in this build. If I was going a pure enchantress build I would actually consider adding this card along with Soothsaying .

Now there are actually a couple reasons why I chose not to run Mana Crypt and Sol Ring . Originally it was in the list, well at least Sol Ring was, I only have four Mana Crypts and they are in my cEDH decks. The times I did have it, it didn't benefit me when I was 'storming' off on my turns, it was a dead card almost all the time. I can't trigger off any of my enchantresses with it so it was cut. Alongside I run Stony Silence as well, I tutor for it pretty frequently due to my meta running plenty of artifacts. The list is tuned to pretty one shot people and outvalue people via attrition.

I hope that gives you my perspective!

AEther Barrier - While it doesn't help you further your voltron strategy, it does slow down your opponents, 1 mana every creature can be very detrimental to plenty decks, unless you find yourself facing other voltron decks.

Ana Sanctuary - A simple 3 mana enchantment that will buff Tuvasa, though the fact it triggers on upkeep might be a downside if you cast it the turn you plan to go off.

Ashes of the Abhorrent - A good graveyard-hate card.

Bonds of Mortality - If you find yourself having to deal with a lot of hexproof or indestructible creatures.

Chromatic Armor - Might be worthwhile to play

I don't fully understand why you run no Artifacts...there's some that are definitely worth playing like the staple, Sol Ring or Mana Crypt (If you've explained it in the primer, I must have missed it, in which case, my bad)

Counterbalance - If you're fighting stax, tell em to go shove it with this beauty

Hope this is of some use to you, +1
