Estrid, the Masked
Legendary Planeswalker — Estrid
+2: Untap each enchanted permanent you control.
-1: Create a white Aura enchantment token named Mask attached to another target permanent. The token has enchant permanent and token armor.
-7: Put the top seven cards of your library into your graveyard. Return all non-Aura enchantment cards from your graveyard to the battlefield, then do the same for Aura cards.
Estrid, the Masked can be your commander.
Estrid, the Masked Discussion
3 hours ago
I've just recently decided to dip my toes into enchantress with Estrid, the Masked in EDH.
Really enjoying the deck so far now it's had a few upgrades but we had an interaction recently with Austere Command that had a couple of us scratching our heads regarding her mask tokens.
If the modes destroy all creatures and all enchantments were chosen and I had both creatures and enchantment cards with masks attached, would the totem armour protect the enchanted permanents or would they both get destroyed at once?
I was under the impression they would both get removed at once but one of the other players wasn't too sure.
Thought I'd have it clarified on here as to how totem armour would behave in this situation.
Thanks in advance!

Hmm LVL_666, I never thought about storage lands, that's a really good idea. I won't cut down to 33 lands though because A) through play testing I've found 36 is a nice consistent number. And B) I seriously have the worst luck with lands.
They may try to make the Planeswalkers in Planeswalker decks "unplayable" but that doesn't always work, just look at the Ajani from M19, the Planeswalker deck Planeswalker is definitely better. Tezzeret, Master of Metal is a Planeswalker deck card, and his ult is amazing (the plus is nice to since it can help me find Rings and The Chain Veil). I personally like Mu Yanling, she can make Atraxa unblockable if it has to come with that and can draw me cards (if I'm desperate). Also, that ult is like my dream ult "Tap all creatures your opponents control and take an extra turn". That tap ability is nice, but it's the extra turn I'm after (like Teferi, Timebender, another Planeswalker deck Planeswalker in this deck).
Huh, thought As Foretold was in here, I must have cut it for some stupid reason. I've been thinking about Aminatou, the Fateshifter for blink, but one Ive been thinking about putting in is Estrid, the Masked. Her minus is nice since it allows my to protect my Planeswalkers to a certain degree.
Thanks for the suggestions! Feel free to leave more if you feel like it.
:Shakes Head: "Storage Lands, how did I not think about storage lands!"

Frankly my budget is limited, but it won't always be limited so comment away. My meta is primarily populated by graveyard shenanigans, voltron (equipment variety), and group hug, with some basic aggro and control thrown in.
What this deck wants to do, I think, is have the flexibility to go either wide or tall if it needs to, and be getting the most value out of the enchantments it casts. My wincon is combat damage, pushed through by beefy and usually evasive creatures. The only actual combo in the deck is Estrid, the Masked / The Chain Veil / enchanted lands. It gives you not only infinite mana, but infinite loyalty on Estrid.

Hey man, are you familiar with the EDH build enchantress that's currently helmed by Karametra, God of Harvests? I am looking to build an Estrid, the Masked version of it, and I was wondering what cards in the color blue other than Mystic Remora and Cyclonic Rift you'd recommend. Those are staples, and an obvious inclusion, but blue enchantments is not something I am intimately familiar with. If you have the time I'd appreciate some suggestions, if not, no worries. :p

@DrkNinja: If there was a reason, It's Alongside Elspeth in the Starfields of Nyx (Though it was assumed Elspeth is part of the same Literature Circle in Kamigawa as Tamiyo, & Narset; so I guess She's alive after all this? It would be a HUGE surprise if Daxos knew Elspeth is a Constellation, & went directly to Nyx to free her; As an Orzhov Masked, Zombified, abomination. I dun think we'll ever know...
Anyways, Magic Story Aside, what do you think of the following:
Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath: Leeches life, creates BIG tokens for a small price, & can use tokens as card advantage/Lifegain fodder.
Saheeli, the Gifted: Makes Tokens, Reduces price for cards to play, & doubles all Artifacts you control.
Garruk, Apex Predator: Kills enemy Walkers, Makes Tokens with Deathtouch, has Lifegain in the form of Killing enemy Creatures, & an opponent will be dealt 5 or so additional damage from each attacking creature, & gains Trample for leftover Damage.
Estrid, the Masked: This is where the Chain Veil Combo gets BS for real. She gives my walkers Auras with Titem Armor, & you can put as many as you need.
If you don't like Cryptolith Rite for whatever reason, just know the mana potential with a lot of tokens is potentially worth it; unless you can think of a better alternative. ;)

Andros240: Journey to nowhere might not be enough especially when the removal is at sorcery speed. Remember that you want instant speed answers in order to stop them from comboing off. I would actually steer into the more stax route and using Estrid, the Masked as the commander instead. Using her untap ability to untap your lands while keeping everyone in Stasis lock. I would suggest looking into a typical derevi stax list for more ideas. Good luck!
DrewReaLee: Hey great ideas. I love glacial chasm and grand abolisher and would definitely test them out. You're right about being proactive but having some permissions back up is key to protecting my pieces when I can't go off that turn. I've been blown out by a well-timed boardwipe too many times to let go of permissions. Do you happen to have a list?

Hey this looks like a great deck you have here, I'm considering building a Tuvasa, the Sunlit deck also I think. I don't have any decks that make use of enchantments much really besides Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, but with Adaptive Enchantments releasing I think this will be another edh deck I build. I might have it built in such a way that Estrid, the Masked can also be swapped in as the general at times I think also.
I have to say the reserve list really sucks though at times, especially for players wanting some good cards for enchantress decks, there's no way i'm buying things like Serra's Sanctum, Replenish, Academy Rector, at those prices lol.
Anyways I have a few suggestions possibly for you and those are: Privileged Position, Exploration, Burgeoning, Rhystic Study, Darksteel Mutation, Open the Vaults, Thassa, God of the Sea, Shield of the Oversoul / Steel of the Godhead, Ethereal Armor, and Ancestral Mask. (Good for winning by commander damage these last few, just thought I would suggest them here but I suspect they may not be good enough if you haven't included them already)? I hope some of these can be of use!

Oops, I missed two of those being in the deck already my mistake! Other than that this looks good, and I can't really think of much other suggestions right now but I will tell you if I think of anything as im also likely building such a deck also. I'm having difficulty deciding on using Tuvasa, the Sunlit vs Estrid, the Masked right now.
