Enchanted creature has protection from the chosen color. This effect doesn't remove Flickering Ward.

Damn, just remembered the very useful white Protection enchantments, the best of which I find to be Flickering Ward . Very strong vs mono decks, but the fact that you can recycle it is very, very useful.

Nice build with some oft-overlooked cards in there! +1
You can check out my deck Intense Aura Beatdown for some suggestions if you're looking. Stand-outs include Spirit Mantle , Flickering Ward , Hyena Umbra , Umbra Mystic , and many many more that combo in my build.
It's mono-color (White), but imo if you're looking for cheap aura/enchantment cards, it doesn't get much more powerful than White anyway. Let me know if any of this helps!

Thanks! I think I actually prefer Flickering Ward with Pariah over Spirit Mantle since it can protect the creature from target destroy as well as absorb any non-creature damage I may take (such as from a Red Burn deck). They're each decent though & that's why I'm running both of them. Either way, Protection is ultra-powerful & the crux of this deck.

I love your decklist, I love your playbook, I love this take. It's a hot take. I was about to suggest a bunch of BS about cards that would make it look more every go-infinite Najeela Warrior Ball Deck, but you can just EDHREC that. I will suggest Cryptolith Rite because its budget Druids' Repository and Earthcraft , and dorks is the key to the deck, so why not dork out hard? (Also, I don't know if your win strategy necessarily needs Najeela online, but that is the most obvious).
What I want to do is talk about abusing your untap enchants. I have a lot of experience with Intruder Alarm , but this thing with the Jeskai Ascendancy : magnificent. Didn't this idea get a little play in standard? Anyway.
Intruder Alarm first: Cheap creatures that bounce themselves like Shrieking Drake or Man-o'-War or Dream Stalker . There's Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion in white, too. Green has Temur Sabertooth which is super nasty for saving other creatures as well as completing your loop. Great with ETB Triggers.
Jeskai Ascendancy is what I'm really excited about. I've never brewed with this card, but it's got huge potential. You have enough colors and sources to make this one really sparkle. There's buyback cards: Capsize , Elvish Fury , Fanning the Flames , Haze of Rage , Mind Games maybe, Sprout Swarm Definitely (works with Intruder Alarm, too), and many lesser ones. Another Tempest-theme comes in the form of a cycle of Aura Crown of Flames , Shimmering Wings , Whip Silk , and Flickering Ward . The last two are playable (you can make a lot of green and usually white with creatures?), but a lot of this means you have to be hitting at least one strange mana color. I would consider looking at some of the "any color" dorks or Gemstone Array Effects. (That's the best one because it's a battery, too.) ... Priest of Titania ...
I would get my draw from creatures. Beast Whisperer is my dude right now. There's elves and wizards that etb trigger with draw (which would be good to bounce and storm off with, too) and would synergize with tribal cards you are running if they're just lame ducks after being played.
If you want your jank to really clank, consider some more tutors, too. I'm thinking cheaper Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Gamble ... I guess that's not too cheap, but way cheaper Vampiric Tutor or Grim Tutor . The reveal might be too much information in your play group, though, so I could see leaving them out.
All that, I just love this mashup. do whatever. I can't wait to see how you evolve this.
