Hey, thanks for the suggestion. I had tried Extirpate in a previous build, but I found that it was kind of narrow in use. Now that we have silver bullets like Lost Legacy and Infinite Obliteration at just three mana, we can be a bit more flexible. Extirpate is a great card though.
Honestly, you really could get away with a budget build for the time being. The most expensive integral piece now is Runed Halo and thanks to UMA, it is already about $5 a piece. Swap Inquisition and Thoughtseize for some combination of Duress, Despise, and Divest to get that early game intel that is- list text here so important to this deck. A playset of Caves of Koilos and a bunch of basics would easily form your mana base. In the sideboard, Leyline of Sanctity can become Ivory Mask and Porphyry Nodes can join Sadistic Sacrament in becoming more spot removal such as Mortify, Anguished Unmaking and even Utter End. I wouldn't be surprised if you couldn't get it right at or even below $100. Good luck!
Hey, thanks for that! I am glad you like it.

I'd replace Ivory Mask with Leyline of Sanctity. Same cost, but gives you hexproof instead of shroud (so you can target yourself with things if you need to), and can start with it on the field for free.
Looks like a fun deck!

Solar Flare was an old standard Esper control list based on ramp with signets and the like, and existed around kamigawa-ravnica standard, http://www.starcitygames.com/magic/standard/12799_The_History_of_Solar_Flare.html has more info on the topic, but it ran sweepers, big threats, ramp, recursion, counterspells, card draw, and removal, as any normal control list does.
The main threats Solar Flare ran were Angel of Despair, Meloku the Clouded Mirror, Yosei, the Morning Star, and Kokusho, the Evening Star, and had really cool interactions such as using non-land ramp like Dimir Signet in conunctions with karoos like Azorius Chancery to get mana through Hokori, Dust Drinker and used effects that discard like Sift and Compulsive Research along with Zombify.
Some of the countermagic it ran were along the likes of Mana Leak and Remand, it had sweepers like Wrath of God, and removal ranging from Mortify to Condemn, and even ran discard like Persecute. It ran Clutch of the Undercity as removal, burn, and a tutor for Wrath of God, Persecute, Zombify, Sift, Ivory Mask, and Hokori, Dust Drinker, and made it have extreme versatility.

I like the deck! Leyline of Sanctity may be a good hard-swap for your Ivory Mask, and you may consider taking out some of your enchant creature stuff for a couple of Sphere of Safety. Overall this is great! Have fun setting up your prison! +1!

This may be a surprise to others, but Ajani's Last Stand is by far the most interesting card for me. I see it being very useful in my R/W pure enchantment modern deck. I need ways to make solid creatures with only enchantments. I also desperately need something to fill the 4-drop slot.
Cast Out, Flameshadow Conjuring, Furnace of Rath, Glory of Warfare, Martial Law, and Retreat to Emeria have been disappointing in my tests. Ivory Mask has been a powerful sideboard option while Pandemonium only replaces Warstorm Surge in very specific matchups. Worship was probably my best option, but it's outside my budget for this deck.
Now, I should have a decent followup to Vessel of Ephemera, Rise of the Hobgoblins, or Myth Realized. The threat of a 4/4 flyer should at least make decisions more uncomfortable for my opponent until I can get safe behind Sphere of Safety. With the engine fully built, Last Stand can be brought back with Starfield of Nyx, trigger Warstorm Surge to kill expendable tokens, sacrifice itself for another avatar and 4 more Warstorm damage, and be waiting in the grave to do it again next turn.

Hey, sorry it took me a while to respond, Ive been very busy, but I don't know if you know this but there is a competetive version of this deck that you can compare this with
https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/467984#paperSorry TappedOut Wouldn't let me hyperlink MTGGoldFish
also Ill include the link to my deck that has some different cards, I was going for a little bit more of a control variant. I think your deck is better and I plan to make changes, but if you are curious for more options I have a bunch of different enchantment cards in mine.My VersionI also want to say, that although I love how budget you have kept your versionThere are two cards that after watching various people play versions of this deck I think are almost essential.
Utopia Sprawl and Courser of KruphixEspecially because these two cards allow you to keep comboing off. Once you hav Eidolon of the Blossoms out if you draw a Utopia sprawl you can just cast it on an untapped land and keep going. Courser of Kruphix is even more important, because it can prevent you from drawing a land once. If you do not play the land on your turn you can keep playing enchantment and prevent one land draw by playing it off of the top of your deck instead.

I believe you are forced to eventually target something else if possible, yes. If, say, there are no other creatures on the battlefield and each player controls an Ivory Mask, the game ends in a draw.
