A W/B enchantment Pauper deck with Grim Guardian always appealed to me, so this list is pretty cool. A couple things:

Spiteful Returned is not pauper-legal. It has only been printed at uncommon. I'd probably replace with Hopeful Eidolon or Baleful Eidolon.

Pillory of the Sleepless is much stronger than Stab Wound. You want to maximize life drain while also removing the creature, which it executes far better than SW.

Including a copy or two of Unmake to the sideboard is strong backup removal in case your opponents are heavy on enchantment hate and your O-Rings no longer work.

I really like the maelstrom cards as they add some flavor and kill factor, but they don't necessarily fit the deck besides being 5 color.

Crystal Chimes seems like an obvious run for the long play. Again, I don't understand why enchantments are so naturally hard to deal with.

Argothian Enchantress and Enchantress's Presence seem like an obvious run if you plan on having green as a final color.

Grim Guardian , Starfield of Nyx and Sphere of Safety seem like good additions depending on the level of aggro you want to run, though don't necessarily go with the "curse" theme.

Angelic Renewal, Blind Obedience, Thopter Arrest, Oblivion Ring, Serra's Hymn, Serra's Liturgy, Grim Guardian, Underworld Coinsmith, y High Ground son bastante baratas y pueden ser divertidos para probar aqui. (Disculpame por que no le muestran los accentos aqui.)

Feliz jugar!

Constellation. It was such a good idea for a mechanic that just doesn't have enough support to be played - basically only Doomwake Giant and Eidolon of Blossoms were really good, with a handful of ok secondaries like Grim Guardian and Agent of Erebos.

Thanks chadsansing! I'd never heard of Mark of Asylum, that would be a great add here! My meta does not use a lot of player targeting, otherwise I definitely agree on Aegis of the Gods. Greater Auramancy is a bit out of my price range currently, but I definitely like it in the deck. Grim Guardian is a fun creature, but I worry that it is slow for what I'm trying to do. And I love the idea of Athreos, God of Passage, but the deck is mostly tokens and so he doesn't end up being as helpful.

Cool take on Zur!

Aegis of the Gods and Mark of Asylum might be good to test to protect your creatures with Athreos, God of Passage, Greater Auramancy, Grim Guardian, and Mark of Asylum to help protect your creatures and enchantments.

Have fun brewing!

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Black Enchantment Devotion

Absolutely recommend two copies of Pestilence. Provides double black devotion, and is a staple of the monoblack control archetype. Grim Guardian and Gary both are resilient enough to take three damage each, which will wipe out any smaller creatures your opponents have.

Shade's Form also provides double devotion and either recurs your creature once, or you can steal something from your opponent.

Nyx Infusion could be good for this list, since you can actually use it to buff some of your creatures.

I recommend cutting 4x Soul Bleed and 2x Stab Wound for 2x Pestilence 2x Shade's Form and 2x Nyx Infusion. Soul Bleed is a pretty bad card.
