is among the better options if you want to play something to fulfill the conditions as it crosses out 2 card types, and all 5 colors of permananets. (And if you use reanimation to put it onto the field you get 1 more card type (mostly instant and sorcery), and you can get 1 more if you use a different crd type to place it into the yard.
Renimating it gives you:
- all 5 colors
- enchantment and creature on the field
- if you reanimate it with stuff like Resurrection you will have sorcery
- lands are pretty much guaranteed to be present.
Thus you will "only" need 2 more card types. Instants are easy to get into the yard.
And there are cards like Liliana, the Last Hope , and some artifacts that would also help with this plan.
The only real problem is that its worse than a simple old fashioned soulflayer deck.
Or you could maybe run this as an alternate win condition in an enchantment prison deck that plays Genju of the Realms as it will likely feature tutors to get all the relevant effects.
The only real "problem" is getting all the relevant card types onto the field or the yard - however enchantment prison gives you enough tim to get there, and there are plenty of card that support encantments.

Enchantment creatures such as Chromanticore are not aura cards while in your hand and therefore cannot be swapped in with Arcanum Wings . The reminder text of aura swap specifically says "aura card". This means a card with "enchantment - aura" in the type line.
Bestow creatures only becomes an aura spell only when cast for its bestow cost and has left your hand to be put onto the stack.
702.102a Bestow represents two static abilities, one that functions while the card with bestow is on the stack and another that functions both while it’s on the stack and while it’s on the battlefield. “Bestow [cost]” means “You may cast this card by paying [cost] rather than its mana cost.” and “If you chose to pay this spell’s bestow cost, it becomes an Aura enchantment and gains enchant creature. These effects last until one of two things happens: this spell has an illegal target as it resolves or the permanent this spell becomes, becomes unattached.” Paying a card’s bestow cost follows the rules for paying alternative costs in rules 601.2b and 601.2f–h.

I am wondering if it is possible to use
aura swap ability to swap in enchantment creatures such as
Eidolon of Countless Battles
If enchantment creatures are cast for their bestow cost the are auras, can this be done with aura swap?

Hey everyone. Thanks for adding me to this group.
I've been on this site for about 5ish years, and have been playing off and on since Revised. EDH is my mainstay.
I'm probably best known on here for #SorryNotSorry and Everybody Loves Hypnotoad - The Gitrog [[Primer]], but my real passion is making unique versions of decks based on Commanders which are off the beaten path.
For a creature, I'll add the-best-creature-ever-invented-which-should-have-been-legendary-but-isn't-because-they-ran-out-of-room-for-more-words, Chromanticore
I really love it when people resonate with my decks, and love comments, questions and upvotes. Please feel free to engage me in brewing and critiquing your decks. I promise to be nice.
