Only one real question to that, how exactly would those enchantments help me win? and win conditions are few. things such as Bitterblossom and Luminarch Ascension. The Only reason i don't take the other two sacrice cards are, fuuny thing, friends with that style tribal deck. Crawlspace just didn't make the cut, and I feel like Sphere of Safety should be an auto here, but i tend to hold off with as little in play as possible. I apologize landofMordor if this seems like a complete shoot down, because you didn't give bad advice, it just didn't work here. thanks for looking at all though, feel free to share the deck around and maybe drop a +1 if you liked it.

Hey there. Noticed your callout on that other Oloro deck. You've got quite a different build here, and it is nasty (and effective).
As a very not-stax player myself, I don't have a ton of suggestions for you to augment that strategy. You've done a great job of building yourself a cushy pillow fort. Only adds I could make are maybe Sphere of Safety or Crawlspace if you have trouble outpacing token decks.
My only other suggestion is that you flesh out your win conditions. As far as I can tell, this deck wins games by just "not losing" until your opponents scoop. Granted, that's a valid strategy, and this deck obviously "doesn't lose" really really well, but I'd at least sideboard in some Voltron auras like Steel of the Godhead or Drake Umbra, to put your opponents out of their misery once you've gotten a board lock. Or even like a U tutor for "eldrazi card outside the game" to grab Emmy or Ulamog. Anything to prevent a night of EDH devolving into Monopoly, where everybody knows who won't go bankrupt, but you can only watch yourself lose very slowly (;
Hope that helps! Hit me up if I can do anything else. Best of luck!

Alright, I'll make a list of pillowfort cards that you may want to consider. Remember that a pillow fort is not just about taxing people that attack you, it's also about making clear that it's to their disadvantage to spend their resources on you rather than someone else. Taxing is extremely effective early, but later in the game it becomes less relevant.
To counteract this, you can include some cards that demonstrate that when something happens to you, the one who did it has major repercussions (aka rattlesnakes). Take Aura Thief, Archon of Justice and Academy Rector, as well as your Karmic Justice as prime examples of this. Another good one is the white equivalent of grave pact: Martyr's Bond. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker fulfils a similar role. Last but not least is Dissipation Field.
Then you also have true protection. Cards that specifically state that you cannot be harmed: Solitary Confinement is the best example, but you also have lite versions in Crawlspace and Teferi's Moat. Stormtide Leviathan can work too, but it's very expensive and colour heavy.
Overall, the list looks very nice! It's just that people now understand that taxing them is your way of earning time and that you should be considered as a potential big threat late in the game. So the best course of action is to take you out first. No pillow fort can handle a coalition of 3 other players just by taxing.
On a sidenote, how does the deck win???

Crawlspace Norn's Annex Teferi's Moat Blind Obedience Narset, Enlightened Master and Dissipation Field are all cards you could consider. I like the deck but just know that the planeswalker will be your only friends when you play this lol

@BrotherofTarmogoyf Hey thanks. Great comment! Yeah I use this deck on UnTap too haha! I definitely considered Phyrexian Arena because it's a really strong enchantment and has some synergy with Solitary Confinement like you said. However I guess the intention of this deck was to use Enduring Ideal which doesn't synergize with card draw since you can't play the cards in your hand. I'd definitely recommend it as one of the replacements for Moat in a budget version though and I will put it in the maybeboard when I finally get around to it. I didn't think of Ensnaring Bridge before although I did consider other artifacts such as Crawlspace, but at the end of the day this is an enchantment deck and artifacts would be all but useless once Enduring Ideal is cast. Thank you for your suggestions though I appreciate them. Have fun.

Crawlspace is a good card for this build. Your commander will force opponents to attack each other, but they won't be able to attack you.
