@Tmiller12321 As in preboarding based on opponent's commanders? I have Energy Flux in my enchantment deck and it usually hoses artifact decks but it has the added benefit of not being totally blank against other decks as it usually kills a few mana rocks at least.

Also Energy Flux is great to keep artifact/combo decks at bay

@Kaleo42, Thank you!! will check yours out! always on the lookout for sideboard hate I perhaps didn't know about yet or just another way of abusing the best bird girl :).

@Skillville, We run more than enough artifact hate and if we would opt for more I have sideboard cards for that in the description... Energy Flux is just the poor man's Kataki, War's Wage. but you could combine both if your meta is purely artifact heavy.

@ToolmasterOfBrainerd, So Containment Priest has a niche role to counter some combo's in my meta that revolve around cheating stuff in play which effectively stops ETB's (Be it Recursion, Flash or other effects). Yes it stops Derevi's ability but the priest is mainly never slammed down for no reason and either kept for its flash play vs some combo decks or grave recursion (Was working on it in the description don't think I added it yet). But if this doesn't apply to your meta, for example, it can be a flexible cut.

I was into this deck until I didn't see Energy Flux. Stax deck is incomplete.

Great Decklist! I was looking for an EDH Tuvasa list similiar to Legacy Enchantress, and this one is the most convincing I've seen so far. I hope you will keep it up to date!

Some cards I would love to hear your thoughts on: I noticed that you're not running a GY-hate card like Ground Seal or Rest in Peace. Is this just a meta call?

What would be some good cards to replace Compost or Carpet of Flowers if these don't work in a specific playgroup (unlikely as it may seem)?

Any thoughts on a hexproof effect for yourself, such as Leyline of Sanctity or Aegis of the Gods?

If artifacts are prevalent in a given meta, would Energy Flux be a good call? If yes, which card could be taken out for it?

Lastly - legacy enchantress usually runs some kind of additional defense, such as Solitary Confinement or Energy Field. Of course, these are slower compared to Elephant Grass, but I still think one of these might be good if you're not surrounded by combo decks that completely go around the defenses provided by these cards. I'd be interested to know why you aren't running any of these.

Thanks, I wanted to have a good plan B and C that didn't detract from my main engine (playing enchantments to proc enchantress effects) and having those enchantments immediately impact the board state or make it harder for my opponents to interact with my board. I still see your point where it could end up not having the right tool for a specific situation can put me in a tough spot so I made some adjustments based on your suggestions.

I was considering Stasis prior and chose not to include it in the initial list because I wasn't really sure what I wanted to cut. Kismet is also something I considered but with Blind Obedience, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Energy Flux, & Stasis it just seems like overkill at the 4-drop spot where there is a lot of competition for that spot in Abundance, Estrid, the Masked, The Chain Veil, Garruk Wildspeaker, Eidolon of Blossoms, et al. The artifacts I thought about but it becomes a little tricky with Energy Flux, being easier to get rid of, and not being an enchantment so my enchantress effects don't trigger. Also I am a little wary about playing cards that make my non-creature spells more expensive because I only play 14 creatures now.

I have considered Gift of Paradise, Verdant Haven, and Unbridled Growth but I prefer the enchant land cards that add additional mana to my mana pool rather than give my land a new line of text. So I basically went with the ones with better effects in Abundant Growth, Weirding Wood, and Dawn's Reflection because it gives me a slightly better mana exchange than the ones you mentioned. Verdant Haven was a little difficult of a decision because Dawn's Reflection is 1 mana more but it gives 2 mana of any color in addition to whatever your land taps for as opposed to 1 so I figured it was a little better on the conversion rate so it ended up making the cut. Although I am still considering it.

Haha, fun idea. Perhaps throw in Winter Orb instead of Energy Flux. Let them untap only one land at a time to cast their spells or do anything. You can keep Energy Flux, provided that you have some way to generate mana that can get around the cost to sacrifice Winter Orb (such as Serra's Sanctum) since it is an artifact.

as a Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain player I hate enchantment players for two reasons. Energy Flux and to a lesser extent (not by much) Aura of Silence. this is why I hereby declare this decklist illegal to play it my presence.
