I've seen Isamaru, Hound of Konda go nuts with auras and equipment. 21 commander damage by the time I have enough mana for Cultivate. See Ethereal Armor with other cheap white enchantments, Sigarda's Aid with Colossus Hammer, and Fireshrieker

Another small update:

I removed Krosan Grip since it was really never needed that much and didn't have enough impact. I also removed Ethereal Armor because while it is a cheap buff, it does not offer protection or evasion.

I added Simic Charm for its flexibility and also Dueling Grounds since this deck does not run any board wipes so far

How about Sigarda's Aid? plenty of auras in your list that could benefit from flash. Maybe swap out Face of Divinity for Daybreak Coronet? An Ethereal Armor or a Rancor + Daybreak Coronet is also 3 cmc.

Boggles might not be budget itself, but it contains cards and ideas you can use. I like the auratog/rancor to give (1g +2+2) to auratog, it makes for a great knockout blow even if its fragile- something every budget deck should look for. Mongoose being a backup plan and protection helps a lot with that. I'd still want a plan for spot removal - gatherer's regenerate is nice with push taking the place of path in many cases, but its going to involve keeping an eye on your meta for exile effects.

While sigil is a great card, cutting it would allow you to also cut abor and sprawl for more 1 mana enchantments, massively speeding up the clock.

If you keep it in the sideboard, you'd still have that 'grindy game' tool even if you aren't running it maindeck - you could even go for a full transformative sideboard trying to live in that 4-5 mana space with a Heliod's Pilgrim value package and value-generating answers like Oblivion Ring.

There are some interesting midrange enchantment options that might suit a budget list running elf/sprawl, with Season of Growth and cards like Setessan Training or Shapers' Sanctuary aiming to eliminate the card advantage drawbacks of enchanting stuff. Silhana Ledgewalker and Sixth Sense still kicks butt when it comes to just drawing a card every turn. Abundant Growth and similar might not be amazing in terms of payoff for one mana, but a set of the variants allows you to splash any colour easily, while still fueling auratog. Satyr Enchanter type effects is a payoff that might work, but is a removal magnet and thus ends up reliant on stuff like sanctuary anyway.

Ajani's Chosen and Archon of Sun's Grace point to the 'play lots of enchantments in midrange plan, but once again, the card advantage battle is where to focus.

There are some 'etb matters' enchantments, but making them work is tricker than it sounds- Oath of the Ancient Wood, Setessan Champion, Strength from the Fallen etc.

Ethereal Armor is the powerhouse in boggles for a reason- it might be a nonbo with autatog sacrifices, but the 'count the number of enchantments' effect is really, really good. Also, its cheap. All That Glitters is armour 4-8.

Totem armour is another tool to protect creatures, but at that point you are basically building boggles.

Best of luck with the brew- its a well supported archetype that hasn't made the cut in terms of tier1, but with a little metagaming and planning it'll play well enough to win FNM.

multimedia on Tuvasa Enchantments

Hey, nice budget version of Tuvasa.

Just about the entire budget here is for five cards: Enlightened, Rector, Copy, Karmic and Dryad. If budget is a concern I think you could cut Copy and Karmic of these to clear some price to upgrade the manabase. Low mana cost auras that can give Tuvasa evasion are important otherwise without evasion she's a huge creature who can just be blocked by a token. Rancor is very good, but consider adding the trifecta of budget hybrid Bant colored cost auras? Because Tuvasa is three colors then these auras give her +2/+2 pump as well two other abilities which is good for their mana costs.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Selesnya Guildgate
  • Simic Guildgate
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Thornwood Falls
  • Tranquil Cove
  • 3x Forest
  • 1x Island
  • Elderwood Scion
  • Mana Bloom
  • Dictate of Kruphix
  • Omen of the Hunt
  • Ashiok's Erasure

Good luck with your deck.

SlushyJones, absolutely agree. A good portion of those cards you suggested I actually already have on the list. I have one copy of Ethereal Armor but its in my other "Enchantment Matters" deck headed by Alela, Artful Provocateur. I've been meaning to get a copy of that card for this one too I just haven't gotten around to it. Thank you so much for the upvote!
