Contaminated Ground Discussion

Shadow_Tack, I used to use Dirtwater Wraith instead of, but Cyclopean Giant worked better. It could appear, at first sight, a bad choice. But, besides of being a 4-4 (not so bad in pauper), many times the opponent don't want to block/remove it because of the side effect (transform a land into swamp permanently). Usually the lands are already affected by Evil Presence or Contaminated Ground and there are one or two usable lands - or worst when it's dual or more colored deck. But i can consider options, of course! What would you suggest?

i don't see temporal extortion being all that great in here. if you try and cast it turn 4 you are essentially just cycling the card. if you play it late game when your opponent doesn't have a lot of life, they'll just take the hit and you played a really expensive slightly stronger lightning bolt. you have to cast it when you have a good field of strong creatures otherwise the "extra turn" won't do you any good.
Bloodsoaked Champion seems out of place here. he is incredibly aggressive and benefits from your opponent not being able to block him profitably over time with all of the other swarms of creatures you attack with... but you don't have that. the best play with him is to sac him to your emerge guy which only reduces the cost by 1. you probably want a much stronger creature. something like Matter Reshaper? it serves as a good body to trade with an opponents creature and possibly get you some value when it dies or when you sac it. also it curves perfectly into mindbender next turn.
Contaminated Ground is a pretty slow and inconsistant damage dealer. your opponent doesn't necessarily need to tap their land each turn especially if they see you already have 2 counters on ascension. it might be better to have something like Terminate as an effective kill spell, or similar cards.

Feed the Clan, Predator's Rapport, Contaminated Ground, Eternal Thirst, Sultai Runemark, Mantle of Webs, Returned Reveler, Snake of the Golden Grove, Aerial Volley, Necrobite seem like your weakest cards to me.

Desecration Demon is great for slowing aggro decks, and not too expensive to cast. Contaminated Ground can cripple their mana base early game. Painful Quandary is pretty good as well. Maybe some Duress or Blackmail for cheap hand disruption unless you can afford Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. Geth's Verdict for cheap removal. Also, Sign in Blood for card draw or to hit them for 2 if they're low on life.
I would sideboard Dark Realms in case they're not playing many creatures.

If you want more cruel control for your opponents, I'd recommend these cards (I put them in any B cruel control):
I have seen a Legacy deck that runs these solely (plus 0/1 walls with regenerate) and they win from all the damage dealt through this.
Just a suggestion that you may wanna look into or tinker with. Hope ya like it!

This looks like a good start to a fun deck, that I believe in our current meta doesn't have a deck that I think would be considered a bad matchup. Not many that would be called a great matchup on the other hand, but the concept can be consistent. Here is a link to a budget enchantment deck I am working on. Its mono white, but maybe you will see some cards you like.
Good options that deal with affinity might be Aura of Silence and Circle of Protection: Artifacts.Good options to help with burn other than the obvious Leyline of Sanctity would be Story Circle and SanctimonyGood options to help with control may be Choke Luminarch AscensionGood options against tron may be Contaminated Ground and Nevermore. Nevermore can name Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger or Karn Liberated or other threats.
These are just some of the good cards you can use. I personally am a big fan of Porphyry Nodes. It reads awkward, but plays very well in enchantment decks. You may not like it for yours as you have a lot of creatures, but it is worth the mention anyway. You may also want to consider a 1-2 of Sun Titan. He can do wonders for your deck. Best of luck building. Enchantment decks can be a blast!
