Invocation of Saint Traft Discussion

Love it. Azorius Charm is one of my favorite multi-modal spells, because it's great tempo/stabilizing/card advantage. Try Lingering Souls over Spectral Procession if the latter becomes hard to cast with the WWW. I would also mainboard a couple more creatures over Invocation of Saint Traft, like Selfless Spirit. And finally, perhaps try Serum Visions, Dreamcatcher, or Anticipate or some other cantrip as a way to see if you can accelerate your draws into your win conditions.

From the comprehensive rules:
109.5. The words you and your on an object refer to the objects controller, its would-be controller (if a player is attempting to play, cast, or activate it), or its owner (if it has no controller). For a static ability, this is the current controller of the object its on. For an activated ability, this is the player who activated the ability. For a triggered ability, this is the controller of the object when the ability triggered, unless its a delayed triggered ability. To determine the controller of a delayed triggered ability, see rules 603.7df.
603.7d If a spell creates a delayed triggered ability, the source of that delayed triggered ability is that spell. The controller of that delayed triggered ability is the player who controlled that spell as it resolved. #
603.7e If an activated or triggered ability creates a delayed triggered ability, the source of that delayed triggered ability is the same as the source of that other ability. The controller of that delayed triggered ability is the player who controlled that other ability as it resolved. #
603.7f If a static ability generates a replacement effect which causes a delayed triggered ability to be created, the source of that delayed triggered ability is the object with that static ability. The controller of that delayed triggered ability is the same as the controller of that object at the time the replacement effect was applied.
The aura in question gives a triggered ability to the enchanted creature and as the controller of the creature you control the triggered ability without controlling the aura itself. If the aura created the 4/4 instead of giving the ability to the creature then your opponent would control the triggered ability as stated in rule 109.5.

So if I enchant my Zedruu the Greathearted with Invocation of Saint Traft and then give an opponent control of the enhantment, when I attack with her my opponent will get a tapped 4/4 angel. But it isn't attacking me, correct? Even though the aura specifies tapped and attacking, we ignore the second part because a creature cant attack except on its controllers attack step? Just trying to make sure I understand the 'why' in addition to the interaction itself. Any help on this would be much appreciated. Thanks

I would cut Invocation of Saint Traft. It doesn't help with Commander Damage, and the 4/4 won't kill as fast as just an enchanted Bruna.

I broke out my GST deck and looked again at this.Am just curious:
Wall of Denial is a solid blocker in this format, but as I was thinking about it, it kinda forces your opponent not to attack pointlessly into it, and a lot of folks will keep blockers up just to dissuade you from attacking with GST himself. I feel like more evasion is needed, be it something like Invisibility for unblockability, Stratus Walk to fly over, or Ghostly Touch/Niblis of the Breath or any tap effect. Thus, New Prahv Guildmage can fill two of those effects.
Spear of Heliod gives anthem and plays a little defense.
Cards I'm not sure of: Chasm Skulker feels unsynergistic without extra draw effects and a token theme with Phantom General or something. -- Thalia's Lieutenant is okay with a few other humans, but would feel better with a more widespread theme to support it. I see the Strionic Resonator, but every deck I know carries removal for just such a creature. -- Is Call to Mind really good with only four other inst/sorcs in the deck? -- I haven't played with Burnished Hart, but sinking 6 mana into the effect feels questionable to me?
