You can make this even less expensive by swapping Knight of the White Orchid and/or Knight of Meadowgrain with some 1 drops like Hopeful Eidolon or Favored Hoplite. Use Oblivion Ring for removal instead of Path to Exile for a further cost reduction. I do recommend keeping the path/orchid combo though if you can afford it. The ramp is nice in white.

I'd disagree on their being too many tap lands. Most decks run between 8 and 11, and this deck only runs 7. It also provides color fixing, to guarantee i have mana of both colors at any given point.

And yes, Hopeful Eidolon is a sadly under-rated card. Especially in a deck taking advantage of something like Hero of Iroas.

Mystic Monastery seems redundant as it comes in tapped and the main point of that is due to it providing a third color your not even gonna use it. All of your Tranquil Cove are already coming in tapped so at that point its a third of your mana base coming in tapped. Not good. Drop the Mystic Monastery for just basic mana id say at this point. I know your trying to stay budget and thats the reason your not putting in fetches but at some point basics are better then some and I think this is one of those cases. All in all I like the deck. Hopeful Eidolon is crazy under-rated huh?! Cheers.

@shadow_ninja9 Yours was the best deck I've seen while looking for GW enchantment decks. My only suggestion would be to replace Staunch-Hearted Warrior with Hopeful Eidolon and swap the Time to Feed with Ethereal Armor. This would further balance out your mana base and keep your opponents busy until you can drop the centaur.

I also swapped Singing Bell Strike for Hopeful Eidolon in the side. Mainly because in the match ups where I would need them against hyper aggressive decks. The life-gain from the Eidolon and the body/buff it creates seems to be more worthwhile and more flexible.

Hi there. I was thinking that Aven Skirmisher could be exchanged with Hopeful Eidolon. Both 1 mana 1/1s, except eidolon has the lifelink and bestow. Just a thought

I've got a buddy that plays a deck like this. It's pretty mean. I could see Hopeful Eidolon being removed as just about every creature there has lifelink already, and they'd be only benefiting from the +1/+1. But even then, your Archangel of Thune would cover that for you. The one that kills me is the Sanguine Bond + Congregate combo he likes to pull. It's a good clutch. Might not hurt to put a Diabolic Tutor in there to help with the combos. But overall the deck looks good!

There is a card that blinks in standard, though whether it is good enough or not remains a point to be seen. With Skybind, you can blink an non-enchantment permanent such as Sandsteppe Mastodon. You just need to have a repeatable enchantment to use. Maybe Temur Sabertooth with a cheap enchantment creature like Hopeful Eidolon or maybe Hypnotic Siren?
