Estrid, the Masked Discussion
1 month ago
A friend was playing Estrid, the Masked this weekend. Her +1 ability is to untap each enchanted permanent you control. The player didn’t have any enchanted permanents but he stated he was using it, and added a loyalty ability each turn. Is this legal? If a plainswalker ability won’t cause the specific effect to take place, do you still get to add a loyalty counter? Thank you for your help!

I know you don't want black but the first thing I have to suggest is Mairsil, the Pretender he doesn't have any activated abilities himself but play him once and he becomes an AEtherling . Then just keep paying and he gets more and more abilities from more and more things. He doesn't really have too many of the normal staples either or at least not the way I've built. Sol ring of course and some other mana things but my Should I Pretend This Or That? is fairly unique.
There are some other commanders that include black that fit the activated ability thing really well but I'll restrain myself... Marath, Will of the Wild is crazy powerful. Zacama, Primal Calamity leads to some great shenanigans though he is a little slow to get there. Phelddagrif is all huggy but fits in with the no black activated abilities thing.

The good news in losing Estrid however, is that it gives you a good excuse to cut blue entirely.
With only basic lands in your mana-base, playing three colors is hard. I know you have Realmwright to help out, but with only two colors, you wouldn't even need to rely on its mediocre ability. ( Urban Utopia is still at least playable with 2 or 3 colors, but they could be Abundant Growth which is actually decent.)
That leaves Ordeal of Thassa as your only good blue card, making the cut pretty easy.
On a sidenote, if you want enchantment to be good in modern, you probably shouldn't go for the midrange route, as it invites you opponent to two for one you, making you lose the value you are trying to gain.
But hey, good and decent are two different things, and depending on your playgroup, you may not be in need of an actually good deck to compete.
Just know that if you want to make improvements, I'd be happy to help :)

I play an Estrid, the Masked deck as well and have been considering adding a "self mill to win". Have you considered adding Life from the Loam and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales ? With Exploration and Burgeoning Life from the Loam seems like a natural fit. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales is a little more vulnerable but could still work. I would suggest swapping them out for Fractured Identity and Anointed Procession .

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Was Tuvasa the Sunlit that obsessed with Land, Sea, & the Sun? & Was that Sun The Immortal Sun ; which isn't even a true sun? I chose her effortlessly. This is obviously Enchantment Matters; & to be frank; Rafiq wasn't as good as he was long ago... Just an opinion, but now I personally wonder if Estrid, the Masked is also worth putting in the (now) 99?
As for Equip Matters: I got both & , the cards are more aggressive as well as supportive; Problem? Even for Partners ( Tana, the Bloodsower & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ) neither have self protection from harm; & no card in exists to help Artifice; unless you're willing to make a list of Mono- cards that break this rule.
Sorry, but at least I made my choice for Bant Enchantress. I personally wonder if we need a new thread for that...

Seriously, BMH. Bumping does nothing anymore...
@SP3CTR3_chelts: Hmph. Well, I do apologize for the Professor notion; the MTG Community is ranting about, well, EVERYTHING now. They don't seem to give a care about what WotC is even releasing, much less everything else; all of which I don't understand. That said; & I'd really like to know what the hell is going on w/ the MTG Community as a whole now; as something has gone wrong, & I've no clue what.
For Rafiq of the Many , he was so close to representing War as a theme. I even wanted to use him at some point in case Jenara doesn't Pull her weight. Tuvasa the Sunlit is powerful indeed, considering she does represent Peace even though she herself is a friggen goddess, maybe I'll cut Estrid, the Masked for her, even though I'd have to shred Forge of Heroes as well. Two Birds with one Stone Destroyed. Wish I had the song in that link...
Anyways from here, we'll have to resume talking about Omnath #1...

BUMPING WITHOUT HONOR OR HUMANITY...
(You rock, Hotei-san... Same for Wil Wheaton at any age.)
@SP3CTR3_chelts: (Why did I forget each time to get to you?!)
Remember what I said on Post 28; they explain why I chose Estrid, the Masked ; & I chose Jenara, Asura of War as her Flavor Text gives dying soldiers of Bant hope, but Jenara doesn't give a damn about helping such mortal lives, & would instead focus on the War than everything otherwise.
But, yeah, after failing to get your attention a plethora times; what else would you add/cut? All while making this an unconventional Mono- deck. At this point, I dunno if my still, WIP Xantcha can be any stronger while controlling Political Aspects of the Board. I plan to do Tana/Bruse Tarl Equipment Matters Voltron/GoLion though; it's Attempt 2 though...

BUMPING LIKE FARROKH BULSARA OF ZANZIBAR! Wait. Does anyone know that name? BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY did have moments that were falsely interpreted in the film. I wonder why they never showed his death in 1991... BMH has MORBID!
I dunno if you're still aware, but I'm trying to refine my Xantcha, Sleeper Agent deck w/ enough competitive nature all while having just the right dose of Political Alliance; mixed with mild Hatebear. Result so far? Failure. It just looks more like any ordinary Hatebear deck for the most part. Sure, manipulating two opponents is an awesome idea, but what else to do about this deck? I really might need some good ideas for the Politics part; but at this point; it's all me, I guess... That said, What are your thoughts on Post 28? Tuvasa the Sunlit is a LITERAL Ixalanian Merfolk Goddess Queen; & her love for her kin that not even Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca wants to use. & I already have Estrid, the Masked for Peace.
I'd still like your thoughts though... :/
