Hi hkhssweiss. First of all - nice deck! I love Tuvasa and this deck is really neat. I used to play her with a lot of combos (Academy Rector, Aura Thief, Enchanted Evening, .... Bant Enchantress Combo v2.1) but it wasn't fun for me. So I am switching to more Voltron style.

Have you considered for example Sigarda, Host of Herons as an alternative lieutenant? She may become a really big problem for your opponents. :-)

Yo cascadien, thanks for the upvote appreciate it!

Already running Replenish, but thanks for the suggestions! I used to run Starfield of Nyx but it was deemed too slow unfortunately. Enchanted Evening while very awesome and can be used with other combos likes Aura Thief and Cleansing Meditation but not what I am going for. Thanks again though!

I do touch upon Sneak Attack in the notable exclusions part. My reasoning on it is that the vast majority of the creatures in the deck are <4 CMC, so there's not a huge savings cheating them out, though it's certainly not bad either. the big problem is that it requires you to have creatures in hand, which you'll probably run out of quickly. I felt Shifting Shadows was better in some respects since it guaranteed I would get a creature on board every turn it triggered. Sneak attack is also ~$30 or so and so it's not the most accessible card. So far Scroll of Fate has been working well in a similar position though. the ability to put out lands, artifacts, enchantments, planeswalkers, & creatures is really a huge upside, and even at once a turn cycle, it's really making an impact when I use it, often just by giving me some land ramp.

All Is Dust is fine, but I would put it in as a substitute for a board wipe, rather than spot removal. Unstable Obelisk is a slightly below average, but still "ok" mana-rock, so even if I never need to activate the removal clause it's still "fine" overall, and generally there's only ever one or two problem cards like Rest in Peace or etc. in any given game.

I think you're right, if I was in a meta with more pillow fort I would definitely want all is dust though, or Aura Thief, etc. definitely adjust things to your meta. for me it hasn't been an issue so far though.

if you're a fan of MLD, go for it! Definitely able to break parity on those effects with marchesa, so if you and your group are about it then it's certainly viable.

Thanks for the upvote! If you're looking for fun combos, and like enchantments, my enchantress edh deck has some evil ones - primarily Hive Mind with Enduring Ideal and Enchanted Evening with Aura Thief. Happy hunting!

I like this deck. A few suggestions if I may. If running Counterbalance you should be running Sensei's Divining Top. Also Aura Thief and Enchanted Evening is a great combo in enchantment heavy decks. As is Opalescence and Parallax Wave. Opalescence and Parallax Wave perma exiles opponents creatures. Nice deck all around.

Yo dude, cool take on Tuvasa +1. Enchanted Evening sounds like a no brainer to me, making her lethal on the spot. Rancor could prove be a great addition to. I also have a Tuvasa edh-deck Tuvasa, Hatefull Beatdown and Enchanted Evening works wonders for me every time (it also does filthy things with Aura Thief if you find a way to kill it)

Hey MagicalHacker. Thanks for taking the time and sharing some tips! I actually had a look at your deck in action as one of the sources for inspiration. Great stuff!

Before going over your suggestions, do you have any tips on what to cut :)? Would be nice to also hear your view on what cards you think I shouldn't run.

This is how I currently evaluate the cards you mentioned:

  • Animate Dead , Necromancy & Reanimate : I like these cards, but I found the other graveyard recursion cards to be more appealing. I prioritized runing cards that can get me multiple creatures from the grave over one-shot effects. I might get Reanimate back in the list someday just because of the nostalgia factor.
  • Aura Thief , Steal Artifact & Steal Enchantment : I don't like that these cards are narrow in application. I prefer to have card with a lot of options over more efficient ones in a control deck like this. Aura thief is really strong, but I am not running ways to get it to the grave reliably (like a sac outlet). That is why I ended u cutting it.
  • Control Magic & Dream Leash : Great options if I get some more room for more steal effects. Dream leash is really strong. However, I prefer the other 5-drops I'm running atm, and I want to keep my curve nice and smooth.
  • Geth, Lord of the Vault : love this card. However, I ended up cutting it for curve considerations.
  • Grave Betrayal & Mind's Dilation : Both cards I like and have been in decks before. However, they are both do-nothing-enchantments for 7 mana. I like the 7-drops I ended up including better (and again, I want to keep a smooth curve).
  • Memory Plunder : I don't like this card. It's mana cost is quite prohibitive with all the colored mana and only gets back 1 card. I like Spelltwine better. I might undervalue the fact that it's an instant, but with my playstyle I'm not expecting to hold up 4 mana with this deck.
  • Mimic Vat : Fun card, but more at home in an arsticrats-style deck imo. It doesn't have additional synergy with what the deck is doing as I run very few ways to kill creatures.
  • Agent of Treachery & Gilded Drake : I already run this duo in my Roon deck, where they are way more busted than in Silumgar. And I prefer to keep my decks distinct if possible.
  • Mass Manipulation : Cool card and one I'd like to try out sometime :). Will see if I can acquire one.
  • Commandeer : A card I would love to run, but quite pricey, and I haven't gotten around to acquire it yet.
  • Pendant of Prosperity : A lovely trinket to steel back. I will give this card some thought :).

Again, thanks for checking out the deck!

GL & HF,

Beebles
