I recommend trying Hero of Iroas greatly, it's very powerful. Other than that maybe some one drops to better utilize phalanx, I've been trying with Mother of Runes because otherwise there is no real protection from removal.

i wonder what's your opinion about Triumph of the Hordes as alternate wincons?

also, i wonder why you don't include things like Sigarda's Aid Hero of Iroas Danitha Capashen, Paragon Kor Spiritdancer Sram, Senior Edificer my knowledge is still very lacking but i find these suits quite well in your deck

Elemental Resonance, Unflinching Courage, Unquestioned Authority, Treetop Bracers, Rancor, Alpha Authority.

Not having your commander be a creature makes the deck very inconsistent. If I wasn't able to play Uril every game I probably wouldn't have won any of them. I would put either Tuvasa or Kestia as the commander.

I could see those drops (Spirit Loop and Predator's Gambit), possibly drop Hero of Iroas for Cloud Key while you are at it, because it affects more of your deck, and is harder to remove.

Otherwise the combo doesn't need any support, as Chromium, the Mutable is a sure-fire source of life-loss.

Thank you, SynergyBuild and skoobysnackz.

Tunman, like SynergyBuild stated. I also, didn’t find Vanishing too beneficial in this case. It is an option for protection, if extra is needed for certain metas. Right now, for me, the flex Auras that can be swapped out for alternate spells are, Predator's Gambit, Indestructibility and Spirit Loop. So if this were to be used as a blueprint. Those spells are good as gone for other flavor spells.

jesusaintnodj, thanks for the +1! I’m glad you enjoy the build! SynergyBuild, did mention before that I should add an infinite combo. So by popular demand, I’ll do just that. I’ll add Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond . Also, I have been playing around with a couple prototype builds based on this. One that is the “Control Edition” and the other I have dubbed the “Time Walk Edition.” Time Walk Edition, includes Nexus of Fate, Time Warp, Temporal Mastery, Temporal Trespass, Karn's Temporal Sundering, Temporal Manipulation, Capture of Jingzhou and Walk the Aeons. Cards that I cut for those are, Predator's Gambit, Indestructibility, Spirit Loop, Gilded Lotus, Consecrated Sphinx, Hero of Iroas, Kor Spiritdancer and Sram, Senior Edificer.

City of Solitude is in green ;-;

Autumn's Veil? Wait no... ;-;


Silence?, Grand Abolisher is sweet, use Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling, Sylvan Tutor, or Eladamri's Call to fetch it up. ;-; (No green)

I guess you can run Recruiter of the Guard though. Nice synergy with the enchantress effects like Mesa Enchantress, Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, it also hits Eidolon of Countless Battles, Hero of Iroas, Nomad Mythmaker, and Snapcaster Mage.

Otherwise you can run Defense Grid, not great, but not the worst, and I guess more counterspells can help stop them countering your stuff. Seedtime is also fun... DANG IT NO GREEN ;-;

Conviction for repeat targeting. Hero of Iroas will make it to play and to return. I have it in a Sigil of the Empty Throne deck.

Super cool deck. I might be missing the point here, but what exactly do you plan to cast all these bestows upon? I'm worried that if you beef up one monstrous creature, it'll be really susceptible to removal spells unless it's like, a Slippery Bogle or Gladecover Scout or something.

Also, I wonder if Hero of Iroas might help you get some of your auras out faster?

Hope you don't mind my questions/suggestions, I'm inspired to try and build a deck sort of like this myself now!
