Eidolon of Blossoms Discussion

I tested this against a Burn deck, as I thought that would be the most challenging for it.
I think 21 lands is too few. I know you have Enchantments that let you get two for the price of one, but these don't hit the field until Turn 3.
Many times I was waiting for one more land to drop, and getting a good opening hand without having to Mulligan was impossible.
Super Aggro decks go with 21 lands. This is a mid to late range deck, as its core mechanic takes time to build up. I would run 23 lands at least, but if this were my deck I would run 24.
If Nyx-Fleece Ram doesn't hit the field by Turn 2, this has no early game.
A bunch of 2/2s (that you don't really want to chump block with) can't hold off 2/3s for very long.
In a Burn deck the problem becomes worse, as spells that can kill a Creature by spending one are plentiful.
That's if you can even cast any Creatures by Turn 2, once again lack of land means you often can't.
Something like Sylvan Advocate may help to stall a little, and gets a boost later in the game.
Yes, it comes down one turn later, but the effect of preventing the Opponent from casting the same spell again is more than worth it.
This would have been especially good against Burn, as few of your Creatures stayed on the field.
That would save some of your Creatures, give the opportunity to get rid of big Opponent threats, and also pump for lethal.
Declaration in Stone is also good. You'll have to play around to see what works the best.
As far as which cards you might cut - you have way too many 4 ofs. I see this in a lot of decks. Although it might seem to make a deck more consistent, it actually has the opposite effect. Due to all cards wanting prime place at the table, none of them have it.
In my opinion, these could be cut back to 3:
That's my take on things. Be aware that sometimes decks play differently on paper than in the TappedOut playtester.
This is particularly pertinent for lands, which often show up with more regularity.
Hope that helps.

I might suggest some cards like Aether Tunnel , Cloak of Mists or even Infiltrator's Magemark with that it seems like you're leaning towards an enchantment theme, which would make me consider cards like Eidolon of Blossoms , Enchantress's Presence , Verduran Enchantress . Pretty good deck! I like the idea of killing with commander damage!

The art avoids the starfield that all Enchantment Creatures have so it can't be Eidolon of Blossoms .

News on the speculation as to what that spirit creature is!
Well, it was subtly confirmed by Gavin Verhey that it is a CREATURE card- and was not initially from Kamigawa. That narrows things down.

I feel like the key to cracking this second preview is finding the creature type, as many of you have less directly pointed out.
My guess is... Spirit or Elemental Druid. So what staples fit the bill? Eidolon of Blossoms is the closest I could find. So this is probably a spell.
What else could it- oh! It looks like a spirit from Kamigawa! Kodama's Reach ? Well it's got the same flavor as Cultivate - that is, the land being tended and flourishing at your hand, but Kodama's Reach is tied both to Kamigawa's Spirits AND to the Arcane subtype, which makes reprinting it notably trickier. So that's my vote.

I absolutely love this concept of an enchantress deck in Pioneer, but I think you're better off with a Selesnya version of this decklist with cards like Courser of Kruphix , Eidolon of Blossoms , Starfield Mystic , and Herald of the Pantheon . I also think this list could do well by maximizing the number of Leylines it runs, even if some are stuffed in the sideboard in more favorable matchups ( Leyline of Sanctity , for instance), that way when you drop Starfield of Nyx , you have essentially a bunch of free 4/4s.
I might brew up a list to give you an idea at another point in time
