Commune with the Gods Discussion

Maybe swap out a couple Harmonize for Commune with the Gods - you've got ways to get creatures out of your graveyard, it's twice as fast CMC-wise as Harmonize, and will can even get you a Lure if that's what you need. Infiltration Lens also comes to mind a a card drawer, but that will only be really good after you've already got your combo down.

Some sort of protection seems prudent as well, and if it were my deck, I'd sacrifice at least 1-2x draw spells for some Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense or Heroic Intervention or Ranger's Guile.

Sometimes you're going to run into non-creature threats. A full set of Naturalize, and a full set of Beast Within in the sideboard could be swapped in for your Lures.

I'm going to assume that Serra's Sanctum, Replenish and Academy Rector were left out for budget reasons.

I've been playing a G/W Karametra, God of Harvests enchantress build for about a year that I'm working on porting over to either Tuvasa, the Sunlit or Estrid, the Masked Here's my thoughts:

I prefer Ground Seal over Rest in Peace. It hoses most graveyard and reanimator stategies, while leaving your own graveyard intact for replenish effects.

Nevermore isn't great unless you know there's dedicated hate out there. I can't imagine wanting to cast this unless I'm pretty sure it's going to stop a Merciless Eviction or Bane of Progress.

I don't like Faith's Reward. Teferi's Protection accomplishes the same thing for 1 mana less and can double as a fog in a pinch. If a sweeper catches you with your mana down, you're better off with Replenish or it's budget replacement Open the Vaults

Don't run Ever-Watching Threshold along side Propaganda, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. Sticking one of those is already enough to disincentivize everyone else from attacking you. You're just not going to trigger the card draw often enough, AND it's only 1 card per combat step. I might be on board if it was per creature. It's also unneed, we're up to 7 enchantress effects with one in the command zone if you want it. Drawing cards isn't going to be a problem.

I'm not really a fan of Genesis Wave outside of green decks that ramp crazy fast and cast it to put half their deck on the field. We want more tutor effects to get out our enchantresses and start snowballing. Eladamri's Call and Green Sun's Zenith both deserve spots. Commune with the Gods is pretty good too.

If you see any amount of Mizzix of the Izmagnus, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Infect decks in your meta, then you're nuts for not running Solemnity. Kind of odd to see Phyrexian Unlife in a deck without tbh. You'd be better off with Worship or even Island Sanctuary than running unlife by itself since it only buys you 10 points of life.

Speaking of Solemnity, there's some fun combo's you can run with it. Land Decree of Silence and you have the game pretty much locked down. Dark Depths is the old stand by, still good though.

If you opt to not play Solemnity, you should run Parallax Wave. Parallax Wave + Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx means everyone else is done playing creatures, since you can just exile them all. For those that don't know how this works, it's basically the same as sacrificing Oblivion Ring in response to the first trigger. 1) with both parallax wave and opalescence out, exile an opponents creature. 2) HOLD priority and exile parallax wave to itself (opalescence turns it into a creature). 3) allow the stack to resolve. Parallax wave's second ability will remain in effect as it leaves the battlefield and immediately return it. The returning parallax wave is recognized as different wave than the one that just left play. 4) Allow the trigger exiling your opponents creature to resolve and it's gone for good. 5) repeat. You can also abuse this for infinite ETB triggers on your own creatures if you want.

You don't have any real ramp in your list as it is. Exploration and Burgeoning will let you play extra lands, but you still need to drawn them. Karametra only works when you cast a creature and you only run 14. Heartbeat of Spring helps your opponents as well as yourself. Zendikar Resurgent is expensive as shit and Mirari's Wake will rarely make around the table. The green enchant land cards will actually ramp you, and are quite good. They're a bit better in an Estrid list, but they worked very well for me in my G/W build. Abundant Growth (tho it's only fixing, not ramp), Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are all worth slots. The other 3&4 CMCs aren't as great, with Weirding Wood being the best.

How about trying out Commune with the Gods? It is a really powerful dig, and hits most of your important card!

+1 for the big frogger!

Could Grisly Salvage be run? It is an instant compared to Commune with the Gods, yet can't find Heartless Summoning, up to you! Crop Sigil isn't bad either, if you want the self-mill!

Commune with the Gods is a little meh, and it isn't even recurrable for me with Meren.
