Enchant creature with another Aura attached to it
Enchanted creature gets +3/+3 and has first strike, vigilance, and lifelink. (Whenever it deals damage, its controller gains that much life.)
yea Daybreak Coronet is just way out of my price range right now bc I'm just getting into modern. You should make a sideboard for this too!
the Daybreak Coronet seems out of place, though i can see how fun it would be to throw on a creature you control magic. things like Acquire , Gather Specimens , and Bribery could do well if that's the theme you want. I'd encourage you to find a niche of control to make the deck more random or haphazard than just outright superfriends, but that's purely my opinion. in terms of control versatility and reusability are the golden standards. things like Snapcaster Mage and Eternal Witness can help immensely with recovering spells. Forbid is probably my favorite counterspell in the format. Hinder , Bant Charm , Spell Crumple , and Spin into Myth can all deny access to a general for an entire game, with charm coming out on top imo for versatility and top deck potential. i have a Bant control, Ramp, Reuse, Wreck that i've been working on for years that you might find interesting.
Here's the issue. This is an established decklist... it's been done before and with great success (even though it's usually just a successful meta call). Your idea is good, but the cards that make the deck successful are MIA. Frankly, if you're casting bear umbra on turn four there's a decent chance that you're losing the game. I get that you're trying to make it a little more durable, but auras is really a hyper aggressive aggro deck rather than midrange because of the fact that a decent number of your opponent's decks are more than able to either lock you out of what you're doing with an established mana base (counterspells, edicts and spellskite are your main perps here) or just go over your head and kill you turn 4 regardless of what you're sitting on for counters.
Also, I like invisible stalker as a card, but in a fast format, adding that blue is really just going to further disrupt your already depleted mana base, which is why you stick to casting 1 and 2 cmc spells, except maybe 2 Unflinching Courage .
That being said, the most bang for your buck is going to look something like this:
Kor Spiritdancer , Gladecover Scout , Slippery Bogle , Noble Hierarch (your creatures will be attacking alone) and probably a single worst case scenario or sacrificial Dryad Arbor . If you must have a creature like invisible stalker, I suggest Silhana Ledgewalker instead of splashing for blue.
2, maybe 3 path to exile.
Ethereal Armor and Daybreak Coronet are both on my list of potentials. I'll see what the deck looks like when they are in. In my opinion Rancor doesn't care if it's carrier makes it through alive, only in dealing damage. And Slippery Bogle has been on my mind but I'm thinking Invisible Stalker instead.
Daybreak Coronet is the best, just expensive. Gift of Immortality is there to prevent having to recast your dude. Running Replenish would get around that, same with Open the Vaults . Instead, you would be able to use that mana to rebuff your guy. Exiles and Tucks would be the only true way to get rid of your guy. With the low amount of recursion currently in the deck, Gift would help you re-establish after a sweep, is the main reason for the suggestion. Its another option aside from Indestructibility or Darksteel Plate .
Gift of Immortality syngergizes very very poorly in enchantment based decks, any other auras will be lost when it is destroyed. Indestructibility serves the same purpose far more effectively. Daybreak Coronet should never be taken out of an enchantment deck like this. It is easily one of the best auras ever printed for them. Period. I do however agree that the three drop anthem cards are lackluster. Possibly try to focus more on creatures that dodge spot removal via hexproof or other means and ways to avoid wraths because they are everywhere in EDH, consider cards like Trollhide and Thrun, the Last Troll . Also get rid of Aspect of Mongoose in favor of Alpha Authority , you don't want to block yourself from enchanting your creature.
