Enlightened Tutor Discussion

Those are all nice cards, but all of them have been previously printed in the new card frame, and several of them have been printed numerous times, so I feel that WotC could have chosen better cards for this group.
However, there are still six more judge promos to be revealed for 2020, so I shall maintain hope that those cards shall be good. Gavin Verhey revealed that all of the judge promos in 2020 would be "tutors," so I am hoping to see Worldly Tutor finally receive a reprint in the modern card frame, since its absence from Eternal Masters was particularly glaring.
What does everyone else say about these cards? Do you like them?

Simply put, too many other tutors that perform better that decks would rather run. If you need 8 slots for tutors, and Sylvan Tutor is the 10th tutor you would add, you're probably adding the others first. Given the small print size and its relative scarcity, its unlikely people will just have one laying around to toss in their casual mono G stompy anyways. You would also only acquire only for Vintage or Commander play, and most people probably don't even know the card exists. Also most decks would rather pay 1-2 mana more and get the card directly to hand. Tutors that give card disadvantage must have other aspects that offset the negative, namely searching for anything Imperial Seal or being instant speed Worldly Tutor Vampiric Tutor Enlightened Tutor Mystical Tutor . You'll also notice that the instant speed tutors are more flexible in what they can grab, as well as with timing.

Oh yeah, you might want to consider some fetch cards if your budget permits, with things like Crop Rotation and Enlightened Tutor coming to mind. 2 Crop Rotations will greatly increase the odds of you getting out your Sanctum, and thus you could possibly replace some of your ramp lands with dual lands, such as the very budget Stirring Wildwood , or Sungrass Prairie or the less budget but still affordable Fortified Village . If you like the Wildwood, you might also like Treetop Village , which is a very affordable beat stick that resists some forms of removal.

Looks pretty nice now :)
Sadly, Enlightened Tutor is not modern legal, but otherwise, pretty nice.

Looking your deck over, I love how you're avoiding stax. I want to with my deck as well. My list is an agro deck utilizing cards like Coastal Piracy , Edric, Spymaster of Trest , Favorable Winds , and Coat of Arms . Kind of a classic Flying Men deck, but with wizards.
I love all the untapping shenanigans you have and I love your wizard-based combos. I would love to incorporate them into my list but a bunch of the core pieces are out of budget, like Intruder Alarm and Enlightened Tutor . Not all of them though!

Nice! Those were some great suggestions, I'll consider them and weigh the pros/cons for each of those recommendations.

Inventors' Fair is anothe good land you could use. Also grab an Ancient Den and Darksteel Citadel as well to maximize artifact synergies. Refurbish , Emeria, The Sky Ruin , and Open the Vaults can also let you get things out of your graveyard.
Reya is probably too expensive.
Cut Heavenly Blademaster, you don't have enough creatures to take advantage of her.
Kemba, Kha Regent would be a more appropriate one because she generates tokens as blockers and swarmers if neede.
I'm not huge on Nahiri, the Lithomancer . 5 mana to not really get a lot done but make a 1/1 and equip it once. Similarly, Ajani Goldmane doesn't seem to do a lot in your deck. I think walkers like Ugin, the Ineffable and Elspeth, Sun's Champion might just straight up be better fits. You want to capitalize on that artifact synergy.
If you absolutely need something expensive and threatening, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn or Heliod, God of the Sun are good options with baked-in indestructible.
Land Tax and Smothering Tithe may also be very big includes. The second generates artifacts for anything that needs them as well as makes lots of mana or slows your opponents down considerably. Both are good for you.
Finally, you have some fun infinite mana generation in there but... what does it do? You've got no real payoff for abusing Basalt Monolith. There's no way to chain or bounce things, no aetherflux resrvoir, etc. Maybe instead of Doubling Cube , you run more linear ramp like Sword of the Animist , Explorer's Scope , or Land Tax
