Font of Fortunes Discussion

Yeah thanks for reaching out. You're talking about upgrading the brawl deck into a commander one, right? I would definitely go back and look at what Theros did with enchantments. Get a few blue/white/black enchantment creatures for bodies on the field. They also gave us an enchantment for each thing that we normally did with sorceries/instants. Check out Zur the Enchanter decks (and get yourself Zur for your deck too). Ethereal Armor is a must, plus removal like Oblivion Ring , Prison Realm , Detention Sphere , and Conclave Tribunal (there are many options). For card draw, Curiosity , Curious Obsession , and Ior Ruin Expedition if you're on a budget. The Fonts from Theros are also useful here; Font of Fortunes , Font of Return , and some of the Seal enchantments: Seal of Cleansing , Seal of Doom , Seal of Removal . You should rarely need to put an instant or sorcery in your deck since you can get all kinds of synergy with enchantments and the enchantments basically do the same thing. Blightcaster helps turn all of those enchantments also into removal spells. And look forward to all of the enchantment creatures that will be added in the next set, Theros Beyond Death!

Well first of all, dropping my link at the bottom. But some all-stars include:
Dreamscape Artist is exceptional ramp.
Glen Elendra Archmage is... hopefully going down in price thanks to the reprint??
Plaguecrafter is a strictly better Marauder or Executioner.
Spore Frog is the best. The actual best.
AEther Barrier seriously slows down aggressive decks.
Animate Dead can hit Muldrotha from the grave.
Excavation is nice.
Font of Fortunes, also nice.
Standstill draws cards.
Unbridled Growth is basically : draw a card.
Chromatic Lantern is FOUR DOLLARS RIGHT NOW
Expedition Map is good ramp.
Perpetual Timepiece is self-mill and woo!

There are multiple good card draw spells that are repeatable, and drawing your self to oblivion is common in my version, which happens to be $200, but you could drop some of the expensive fetches and do just swell.

Maybe The Mending of Dominaria?

Satyr Enchanter is the new M19 enchantress, and it is really a good choice, I recommend it! +1 on the list, below I will give you some random suggestions!
Journey to Nowhere, Grasp of Fate, Seal Away, Banishing Light, Oblivion Ring, Detention Sphere, Stasis Snare, or Cast Out all ahve ups and downs, but are great at removing a hatepiece while going off, or any real threat on the field!
Cloudstone Curio - Cast an enchantment, bounce another, cycle between two cheap enchantments to draw a ton of cards, great card!
Words of Wind - Cast an enchantment, pay 1, cast trigger to draw off an enchantress, bounce another enchantment, rinse and repeat to bounce every permanent your opponents control, down to their lands!
Excited for the 23rd? A new Commander 2018 Bant Enchantment deck will be spoiled then! a new commander that synergizes with enchantments and doesn't cost 300 dollars like Angus Mackenzie? I hope so!

@SynergyBuild Thanks for the suggestion, I did consider it at one point. I was mulling over at my table if I should run Vessel of Paramnesia or Font of Fortunes and ultimately, I chose fortunes because it is less dependent on the commander and nets you more value overall imo. I've decided to opt for other self-milling options. At least now you know my thought process behind it. :)

Alrighty, took a quick look and made some adjustments, could you tell me what you think darksilver? Going to remove Dakmor Salvage, Elves of Deep Shadow, Roil Elemental, Font of Fortunes, Phyrexian Arena, Darksteel Ingot, Commander's Sphere, Dictate of Karametra, and Temple of the False God. To replace these I was gonna add Realms Uncharted, Horn of Greed,Kiora, Master of the Depths, Secrets of the Dead, Ramunap Excavator, Burgeoning, Sands of Delirium, Elixir of Immortality, Havengul Lich, and Barren Moor. Have not added Alchemist's Refuge yet, need to though. Thinking about removing an artifact to facilitate this, maybe Ratchet Bomb or Wayfarer's Bauble. Or maybe Jace or Liliana... Decisions, decisions. But! I haven't made these changes yet!

darksilver, thanks for the input man!!! Mill has kinda been my guilty pleasure since I started playing, so I do want to include it here as much as possible. I'm thinking about scavenging some more from my (Built) Lazav EDH deck, haven't looked into yet, but maybe some of the artifacts, and convert that mainly to control/shapeshifter. I should probably tell you, budget is a big thing, lol, otherwise Font of Fertility and Font of Fortunes wouldn't be making an appearance, the money cards are just ones I've picked up along the way. I actually picked up two Ravenous Chupacabra tonight, and one of them definitely made the switch you were suggesting. I am going to be switching Ramunap Excavator from my (Built) Jarad EDH deck to this for sure, and throw in Burgeoning as well (what are your thoughts on that?). I like Llanowar Scout because it does let me play extra lands, but are you thinking I have too many of these instances? Like with Courser of Kruphix? Or is scout just too weak for that still? The reason I am playing Courser is twofold, he is an enchantment creature, and I tried to get as many permanents with multiple types in here so I would always be able to maximize my commander's ability, and he lets me play stuff out of my library just like Vizier of the Menagerie (which really gives me 3 places to play all told). Speaking of multiple types on permanents, that's the same logic behind Etherium Sculptor and Kruphix, God of Horizons, although secondary to multiple types is that the sculptor can make some of my artifacts free (and I think I will be adding more now, like Horn of Greed which I just got, and whatever milling I decide to do) and Kruphix can net me a lot of mana over time, which man, I know I have an artifact that has X mill in it... But... what do you think of those two still? I guess let me find the other stuff and then see... I need to get a few Perpetual Timepiece for like three or four decks, but as of now I don't have any. On that note, I think I might take out Mirror-Mad Phantasm because you are right about him milling me out, I just wanted to use him so bad; what do you think? I kinda like Death's Approach in here because more targeted removal without qualifiers is nice, it gets around indestructible, only costs one mana, and it's an enchantment so it gives me more options there. That all being said I think I am going to put in Fleshbag Marauder since I pulled him from a pack tonight (literally no shop has had a version of him the past week), and after that are you still not liking approach? Also, no Shriekmaw has I sadly. Your comment about lack of instant speed interaction does strike a chord within me... might look into throwing in Alchemist's Refuge, though my Kumena deck will be sorry to see it go, lol. I do believe I am going to find a way to fit in Secrets of the Dead, because my hand needs to have cards as well, probably, and that's so awesome I wish I had thought of it before. As for Cyclonic Rift, and Beast Within... I really didn't want to move away from the permanent theme (also... I do not own a Rift, please do not doubt my seriousness as a commander player, lol), but I might actually be adding something I picked up today in the $.50 bin, Realms Uncharted. After looking over this again with your words, and some new thoughts, in my mind these are the cards I'm for sure going to be pulling: Villainous Wealth and Shambling Shell, those are just the for sure ones though. I think I might invest more into the creatures... sigh, part of me wants to bring over my Lord of Extinction, but it makes Jarad really. Thanks again though!!! And have I changed your mind any? I do know you may want to wait until I have made more chnages, but seeing it through your eyes has helped a lot already.
