Hi MrWilb3rt,

Nice deck. Fellow Kaalia of the Vast player Kaalia, Mirror Breaker EDH.

Combat Celebrant is a cheap exert additional attack phase, also,

Combat Celebrant + Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Splinter Twin | Infinite Combat Phases

Adarkar Valkyrie + Aurelia, the Warleader + sac outlet like Goblin Bombardment / Fanatical Devotion | Infinite Combat Phases

Reconnaissance or Iroas, God of Victory could help with blocking issues during the attack phases.

Boros Charm to make your guys indestructible as well could be a nice surprise attack.

Moat is another similar to Ghostly Prison .

There's also lots of tutors, or Gamble to find your Aggravated Assault or Hellkite Charger , stuff like Steelshaper's Gift or Open the Armory can help find the Sword of Feast and Famine .

+1 Cheers.

@GureiSeion hey thanks for checking out the list. So far i have mixed results with luminarc ascension so far, its great in the opening hand if you dont have the tithe yet, but later on in the game it just paints a target on you. One of the biggest drawbacks to this deck is the lack of creatures, Luminarc gives me some beefy blockers to keep me a live and as an added bonus people will use up an enchantment removal on luminarch before you drop the smothering tithe.

Im going to eventually play around Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , Sphere of Safety , and Norn's Annex to see if that works better. I didnt like that they were 3+ cmc though vs luminarch’s 2cmc.

I am considering dropping the second sun win con with bounce spells for Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell combo so i have another wincon that’s not reliant on smothering tithe. And adding some hate bears.

QuietMyth I was also thinking about Ghostly Prison and a Celestial Mantle perhaps

Hey, if you like control and your meta is that much aggro then you probably want to play primary white for board wipes ( Day of Judgment , Supreme Verdict , Fumigate , etc.) and anti-aggro cards ( Blind Obedience , Authority of the Consuls , Ghostly Prison , Swords to Plowshares , etc.)

To help your $120 budget for the manabase you could can play Oloro as two primary colors (blue and white) and only splash black for him using some budget lands in the manabase ( Swamp , Command Tower , Exotic Orchard (if an opponent is playing black), Caves of Koilos , Sunken Hollow , Choked Estuary , etc.) and budget mana rocks ( Dimir Signet , Orzhov Signet , Fellwar Stone (if an opponent is playing black), Talisman of Dominance , Commander's Sphere , Chromatic Lantern , etc.)

While Ensnaring Bridge is undeniably powerful, it might also be worth considering that Ghostly Prison will often act like a one-sided Bridge. It’d allow you to go more all-in on Intangible Virtue too.

Heya phsycord alright I took a look into your deck list and to go reasonably within budget here are some cards that are part of the core "enchantress" package, you have most of them already so here are some additional ones.

Now going for your route of winning there are pretty much a couple ways of winning. In my personal taste I would go for the Enchanted Evening + Calming Verse / Cleansing Meditation / Aura Thief route. However that does require quite a bit of money invested into the deck, although it's really fun. The next way I would recommend is just to outvalue your opponents which can get really fun.

You are essentially going to be using certain cards to make tokens and smack people in the face. To protect yourself as well you will be using cards like:

These enchantments will help you last the game longer as well as prevent people from attacking you forcibly. Next on the list of agendas is card advantage, you need a consistent flow of cards to keep on pumping. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are essentially auto-includes and too good to not use. Sylvan Library although it's fairly pricey is extremely good and would be a great investment.

Now for the ramp, you have most of the auras that matter to untap with Estrid. I would recommend cutting out the enchant lands that cost 4 cmc. You will need to curve out at 3 CMC for those types of ramp enchantments. Additionally you can add in Exploration , it's not needed, but it goes very well when your shitting out enchantments like no tomorrow.

For value cards all around, Wargate is one of the best card there is. You can grab any permanent and place it directly onto the battlefield. Estrid's Invocation and Copy Enchantment are great cards to use, especially Estrid's one as she retriggers itself every upkeep. Song of the Dryads as well as Darksteel Mutation are great hate cards to deal with things you can't really deal with in these colors/

Protection spells I would recommend are cards like Faith's Reward , Heroic Intervention , as well as Heroic Intervention . Lastly for land, since we have a lot of mana untappers, I would recommend grabbing up a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as it provides an substantial amount of mana.

Hope that helps! I'll probably add in more later on as it depends on the route you go for~

So I gave up on red.

In tinkering with commander and thought I'd take a break, check in here and see if anyone has suggestions. It might be a little too big (200 cards) and costs way too much ($1,000) to ask for help but I do need to chop it apart.

My go to colors were always Black and White.

Zombie Angel Deck

My starting idea was simple.

If you have any quick suggestions let me know! Thank you
