Eidolon of Blossoms Discussion
18 hours ago
Always happy to see some mythology-themed decks! Kestia is a great commander and I feel she's underrated in comparison to the other two out of the C18 precon. I built something similar -- the theme of the deck is Greek mythology, but I borrow more cards from different sets so long as they support the flavour of the deck. You might find some inspiration in it:
Looking at your deck as it is, I think you're doing well in terms of ramp and flavour. You've picked plenty of powerful cards and synergies and they're all on theme.
You could probably shore it up in terms of (reliable) card draw and removal. For instance, more unconditional creature removal like Swords to Plowshares will serve you much better than Reprisal, even if Reprisal is more on theme. Most of the card draw in your deck relies on attacking with enchantment creatures, which is fine, but Bant doesn't have a lot of Haste so maybe consider an extra enchantress or two so you can at least get value out of casting your enchantments. That way if they get removed before you're allowed to untap with them, they've still replaced themselves. Satyr Enchanter is not from Theros but is certainly on theme.
Something to save your board from wraths is also helpful. Eerie Interlude is great in combination with Eidolon of Blossoms, but consider something like Heroic Intervention, Make a Stand, Rootborn Defenses as well. For that matter, a few extra wraths in your own deck would help you reset the board if someone is off to a faster start than you. Hour of Revelation is fairly on theme, as is Wrath of God.
Other considerations you might make are more meta-dependant, like graveyard hate or land destruction. You might not need Rest in Peace or Ghost Quarter in your meta, but it would round out your deck to be better suited against unknown opponents.
All in all, I liked looking through your deck list! Have fun.

redace10 I'd actually advocate towards keeping both Oblivion Ring and Banishing Light, since they are the most versatile on-theme removal. More importantly, if you can get Oblivion Ring, Banishing Light, and Estrid's Invocation in play (admittedly a long shot) you can recursively have them exile each other as much as you like, scoring an arbitrary number of Constellation triggers. It certainly isn't as efficient as some other combos, but Kestia draws a lot of cards, and there's something special about drawing your deck from Eidolon of Blossoms or swinging for infinite damage because of Nylea's Colossus.

I forgot that Starfield of Nyx affects creature-enchantments too; it will cause your gods to be 4/4 or 5/5. The "benefit" is it can turn them into creatures without the requisite devotion, but that doesn't seem especially helpful. It shines when you're running a bunch of utility enchantment creatures, or constellation effects (Eidolon of Blossoms, Forgeborn Oreads).
Your color fixing feels fine when I playtest, the vivid crags might be overkill when coming into play tapped. Consider Jungle Shrine instead? Also the more non-basics you run the harder Duergar Hedge-Mage will be to trigger, particularly for the mode you want. I would suggest +2 Always Watching, maybe -1 Iroas and -1 Starfield to make room? You might also try to slot in some tutor effects to let you customize the anthems you're grabbing, since they're mostly bad in twos but pretty critical to get one.
Commune with the Gods is pretty spot-on for flavor; did you consider Benefaction of Rhonas or Vessel of Nascency? The former is card advantage and the latter grabs your planeswalker. Kruphix's Insight? Reviving Melody is also a good enabler if you run some more self-mill seek effects. Satyr Wayfinder might help keep you on curve mana-wise?

Hi Natalbee, Thanks for your suggestion. I never thought of adding the unblockable part before. I am going to add Herald of the Pantheon,Eidolon of Blossoms and also Kestia, the Cultivator The +1 tokens do not work optimal with flickerform, since they would be lost when flickerin in my own creatures. Perhaps I should ditch the flickerform concept... hmmm. Also I am going for a Glen Elendra Archmage this would be ideal to flickerform and add some more counter.

Some way to make Tuvasa (or anything else) unblockable would be good. A Flitterstep Eidolon, Whitewater Naiads, or Thassa, God of the Sea. And if you plan on bouncing your creatures, maybe something like Cathars' Crusade could be useful? There's also ways to turn your enchantments into creatures, like Starfield of Nyx. I also see 0 cards with Constellation or Bestow. Eidolon of Blossoms could be nice to add to your cast-enchantment-and-draw-card cards. Herald of the Pantheon is also pretty cooooooooool. As is Kestia, the Cultivator. And not sure if you're into combos, but Enchanted Evening and Ajani's Chosen go infinite and are pretty good on their own.

I would remove Eidolon of Blossoms personally because of its rather high CMC compared to other alternatives, like Satyr Enchanter (tho there are probably better picks for card draw/life gain off enchantments) Also some other potential sideboard material would be Damping Sphere & Infernal Reckoning to possibly help with colorless matchups.

Sacred Mesa gives me enough reason to add back in Fertile Ground. I’m already running Wild Growth. I’ve run all the above mentioned enchant land cards you’ve listed in previous builds of this deck and was never satisfied, even when Estrid, the Masked was the commander. Exploration and Burgeoning offer more towards ramp with inclusion of draw and Land Tax.
I’m already running Satyr Enchanter, Eidolon of Blossoms, Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Mystic Remora, and Sylvan Library, not to mention my Commander is a guaranteed turn 2-3 drop. Also, I can always tutor my enchantress pieces in multiple ways. Inclusion of two additional enchantress cards with double mana costs is not as good as you think.
Aurification and Dissipation Field are actually worthless pillowfort choices as Commander damage or an all out assault can still kill you when up and opponents have possiblility to reobtain their creatures. Taxing effects are often more effective to discourage assaults as well as being cheaper to cast. Elephant Grass is listed on my maybe list, but is not prime choice due to cumulative upkeep and gives no card draw unlike Mystic Remora.
Overall my deck shuts down opponents very effectively so they can’t interact with me, but I can still touch them. Either opponents die to combat damage, Commander damage, or scoop due to lack of ability. I do like that Sacred Mesa that you mentioned.

While I like the idea of efficient 2 drop creatures 3 drop enchantments to generate very powerful creatures, I feel like a lot could be smoothed out with some minor adjustments.
Qasali Pridemage is amazing, in that it is a maindeck answer to Ensnaring Bridge, ironworks and Oblivion Stone, along with a playable body, and well worth a look. There are more budget equivalents around, but I've never failed to want pridemage.
On the note of 3 drops though, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms and Verduran Enchantress offer major card advantage. For a longer term 'lifelink and disruption' plan, they are no joke.
Good luck, and I hope you get a strong list out of the end of it.
