Should I add the infinite combo Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft? I could also add some enchantment fetch cards like Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Enduring Ideal, Lost Auramancers, Plea for Guidance, and Sterling Grove.

When Enduring Ideal is used you don't get an experience counter for the enchantment, so is this mostly to get the combo? I don't understand why getting more enchantment this way matters. So I'm confused.

Enduring Ideal is a really nice way to get your enchantments out on the field, but isn't very synergistic with Daxos, Blightcaster, or Celestial Ancient.

Have you considered curses such as Curse of Exhaustion, Curse of Misfortunes, Curse of Thirst, Trespasser's Curse, or Cruel Reality?

Athreos, God of Passage and Debtors' Knell are also really nice reanimators.

Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence are also really nice in enchantment decks.

Sphere of Safety, Blind Obedience, and Koskun Falls can also help build up your pillowfort.

You also can run Extinguish All Hope for a wipe that doesn't affect the spirits summoned by Daxos.

Worship and is nice as well.

Why not put Enduring Ideal ? It's quite fun even if it's not always useful

Going overboard on Greater Auramancy will get you killed by aggro. Plenty of other pieces can sort of protect our other pieces.

Story Circle simply isn't 4x maindeckable. I'm pressed to even add a single to the main but one for the side is fine. They don't do anything against Affinity or Eldrazi. They actually don't do nearly as much as you'd think. If I see a ton of Merfolk, I'll get back to it.

It almost never makes sense to take out Halo. Halo is one of the quintessential cards of the deck. It should be 4x as it has insane versatility against so much. Redundancy. It can be a free win in niche situations.

Dovescape in interesting but likely better in Enduring Ideal lists that can quickly build upon the lock. There's situations where you don't want to be giving your opponent tokens. Mainly because o oh taxing works on them. One thing that gets around naming mechanics is tokens which are nameless. I may not want to face down an Ulamog, but I don't want to be facing down 10 1/1 flyers either.

If you're wanting to cheat enchantments in, then Show and Tell is probably your best bet- be wary that it gives them an opportunity to put their biggest/most annoying thing in, as well. Outside of Zur (and that's only for cheaper enchantments), your options are pretty much limited to Academy Rector (there's a reason demand pushed his cost up to $25), Enduring Ideal (which is less than ideal), and maybe Lost Auramancers fading counter abuse. There are more, but they're even worse than these (Arbiter of the Ideal is terrible, Gate to the AEther can work, I guess, but good luck resolving a 6cmc artifact against counter spells already).

Spells like Hypergenesis and Show and Tell work in more generalized builds and can let you slap down an Omniscience and just be done with it. Genesis Wave can let you slap down a bunch of permanent cards if you can get it to resolve.

Wargate doesn't cheat anything out as it's just a tutor, but it will make your opponents counter spell blind- they have to counter assuming what X is because you don't have to tell them. If they know what the card you're tutoring out is, then the spell has resolved.

More general answers like Grand Abolisher and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir will help.

I've been playing/streaming enchantment prison for years now. I just adapted my deck to include the Enduring Ideal + Dovescape Form of the Dragon shut out combo. I have to say, if you're playing Enduring Ideal with 1 of off color win cons, you absolutely have to run at least one Peace of Mind. Anything sitting in your grip cant be targeted with Enduring Ideal, so if you draw Form of the Dragon or Dovescape (which you have over a 23% chance of having 1 of those in your hand after the first draw) you're fairly shit out of luck. Peace of Mind paired with Mistveil Plains allows you to dump your hand into the grave for life gain, and lets you put the next card you intend to target with Enduring Ideal back into your deck. Suggest cutting 1 Suppression Field for it.

I would also play Nyx Fleece Ram over wall of omens

It really depends on your budget, but if it isn't an issue, then definitely run Leyline of Sanctity over Ivory Mask if you can afford it. Banishing Light will up your Oblivion Ring count to 8.

So much ramp, and nothing to spend it on? I have a good suggestion for you for all that ramp: Enduring Ideal. Then every turn you can just fetch out your answers.

I'd up the heralds to 4. They cheapen everything in your deck.

Good luck!
