Rhystic Study is a stupid powerful source of card draw, and its lesser cousin Mystic Remora isn't bad either. Sword of Fire and Ice provides you with a bit of draw power and small removal in addition to adding to your gameplan. Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Windborn Muse, Norn's Annex, and Sphere of Safety are the classic 'fort' cards if that's what you're looking to do. The Solemnity + Decree of Silence combo could fit nicely in here as well if you feel like being a dick lol

I like it a lot, however would totally run Solemnity for the combo with Decree of Silence, also, consider Trinket Mage over Treasure Mage, and all of the fetchlands like Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest, Arid Mesa, Scalding Tarn, Marsh Flats and Polluted Delta, they are legal even with color identity.

Of course this depends of how competitive you're trying to be, but in my meta cards like Privileged Position, Decree of Silence and Abundance are way too slow. The competitive play I know is a place you're trying to trim down your decks average cmc to be somewhere around 2-2,5. If I'd be you I would also consider Azami, Lady of Scrolls for infinite draw when you get the loop going.

NeonEndymion: I agree that Alhammarret's Archive is overkill and not needed. Also..there is only so much you can fit in this deck so every card needs to count imho. I've decided to keep solemn seeing that artifact hate can set me back more so having some kind of land ramp can provide me with another insurance policy against that. I'm now debating cutting Knight-Captain of Eos for Eerie Interlude (just noticed that it works well with's a great political card for protection though so idk.

I honestly think that in a 75% pod, Aminatou is a powerhouse. Brago is too fragile and because it is a creature, hating brago out is way easier than Aminatou. Also, any constant fog effect is gonna brick him hard. The addition of black also makes Aminatou that much better as a flicker commander.

Omega505: After tinkering with different cards to be abused by Aminatou, I think that the best way to build her is to specialize in something. For example, my build is more of a value-town toolbox strategy. This means that I will include value cards that isn't oppressive to abuse. The other direction is the stax route, which is to abuse cards that are oppressive to the table and Decree of Silence is one such card. I'm not a fan of mixing both stax and value-town strategies together as they dilute my deck's direction and make it less coherent and effective overall. I think Decree of Silence is a great inclusion in midrange stax builds but definitely a poor fit in my strategy.

Abundance combos with Sylvan Library to net you 3 cards per also smooths out your draw to get what you need. Since you're running Mystic Remora, Solemnity combos with it to not having to pay it's cumulative cost anymore. If you are adding solemnity to your deck, you need to add Decree of Silence in there for a virtual lock.

Feel free to check out my primer for more ideas!

I like the heavier inclusion of auras in the deck! Tuvasa gets pretty big fast. I've come to the conclusion that Solemnity is one of the stronger cards to build around. I'd recommend you check out Decree of Silence. It combos SUPER well with Solemnityand lets you just auto-counter the rest of the game out. The mana cost is a little daunting but it's well worth it, especially given all of your land enchants.

Solemnity also combos well with a lot of other hard hitters, including Mystic Remora (keep that magic fish around forever) and Glen Elendra Archmage (so you have near-infinite negates).

Also, I'd recommend Burgeoning. You're playing all of the enchantresses and will have SO many cards to play. It helps you stay ahead on lands.

Finally, I'd look into Cleansing Meditation. It combos really well with Enchanted Evening and just locks the game out if you have threshold, which isn't hard to hit in edh.

Let me know what you think and Praise The Sun! (I assume Tuvasa is all about that, or something..)

Thank you SynergyBuild, I did not even know about Decree of Silence. It does seem overpowered with Solemnity, but it would only be viable if I pull off Enduring Ideal. The mana cost is pretty high, and makes it hard to splash in easily. I may make a Blue splash sideboard though as there are a few cards that can combo well with this deck that are blue.

@IzzWizz Thank you very much for the detailed review. I assembled and improved the deck over time so it will propably take me some time to get some of the cards you mentioned. But i will make some changes for sure since your arguments convinced me that the slots for Ever-Watching Threshold and Nevermore can be used for something better. I will also try to include Herald of the Pantheon. The Solemnity+Decree of Silence-lock is pretty attractive for me since the cards are pretty cheap and easy to acquire.
