I love the idea of enchantment-decks! I would recommend adding more copies of Enchantress's Presence and suggest including Herald of the Pantheon or other enchantments that synergize like All That Glitters or Ethereal Armor :)

Not super familiar with the non-pauper builds of this deck, but it seems like you would want more enchantments to target your heroic creatures. The pauper deck runs: Cartouche of Solidarity, Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, and Sentinel's Eyes. I actually found your deck because the above comment mentioned Wingsteed Rider. I really wish there was another heroic card to add to the deck, but I'm not sure Wingsteed Rider is going to be good enough. A downshifted Phalanx Leader would be killer for the pauper build.

Nice Idea but I think you need more removal maybe even enchantment based removel (at least one card to fetch with Idylic Tutor) I playtested this Deck against my Atraxa Superfriends version and almost won Turn 5 by enchanting Atraxa with Rancor, Ethereal Armor and Tainted Strike but Cyclonic Rift saved the day :)

From there On I equiped my Atraxa with Sword got Protection from White and Blue and it was over :)

Thanks for the input, bushido_man96 and Epicurus!

I think I could add a couple of those to refine the stax elements in the deck. Right now it's a bit more generic control than stax, and I think that would improve the gameplan. I very much like Panharmonicon as a pseudo-Doubling Season.

I probably won't be adding Zur the Enchanter or Mudslide. I like Zur, but I think I could do better with a one-off tutor and avoid the lightning rod. Splashing red for Mudslide would be weird.

I definitely understand not wanting to add combos to a deck. Especially considering that it's theme-heavy. I try to look at how many cards an addition to the deck would interact with for myself and my opponents, so it's hard to justify cutting good cards in favor of combos.

What I'm hearing from most is that I need to focus on direct upgrades to cards already in the deck, and figure out what in the theme gives the deck the most value. I think your suggestions fall in line with that idea. Thanks!

bushido_man96: I'm considering a couple voltron in the deck since you suggested. I like the option to be able to swing through board wipes with Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters, but not sure what I'd cut.

Ethereal Armor is another good Voltron piece.

Have you considered Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, or Kithkin Armor? They are some of my favorite cheap, budget enchantments!

These might be a little too expensive but if you don't mind more played versions, these can be pretty cheap: Spirit Mantle, Flickering Ward, Prison Term, Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Umbra Mystic, and Retether.

Oblivion Ring-type cards also might be really good since you can tutor/dig for them in a pinch with the tools you already have. Some others in this vein are Thopter Arrest, Journey to Nowhere, Banishing Light, and Cast Out.

I hope some of these are helpful at least! They are just ones that I have found pretty useful iny own decks :)

Unlife on My Deck is my Phylactery

Massacar With your deck needing to cut, atm, 26 cards, you are going to start losing cards you like. I don't know your meta but my experience both with and vs Zur is that he tends to draw a lot of hate. The power boost of Ethereal Armor is nice but the boost provided via all other enchantments can fluctuate a lot depending on how your opponents destroy your field. Things like Steel of the Godhead and Staggering Insight provide a lot more value for Zur to swing even if it is less power. If you do like the beatstick aspect for Zur, consider Umbra Mystic as a more flexible alternative to making any aura you stick on him more protective.

Unlife I did have both the Emperion and the Lich's Mirror originally. I cut the mirror because I couldn't really find a way to abuse it, and found it to be more of a liability since it resets my board state and puts my health only to 20. I cut the Platinum Emperion because of his high CMC and his redundancy with other effects I was running, but I may throw him back in.

Why would you recommend cutting the Ethereal Armor? I figured it would be good to stick onto Zur since his ability only activates when he attacks.
