Kestia, the Cultivator Discussion
1 month ago
Let me start off by saying I've played around 10 games with the deck straight out of the box.
So I received the Adaptive Enchantments precon from my parents, and I'm sad to say I dislike the general enchantress style, I even got a good engine going with Kestia, the Cultivator and a few enchantment creatures, but it seems kinda straightforward and boring; just playing enchantresses and drawing cards while kinda pillowforting up. I know it might not be me giving the deck too much of a chance, but I think that enchantress isn't for me.
That being said, I do want a new deck. Are there any cards in the Precon that would be good to build around? Legendary or not? I don't want to waste it, since I really appreciate my parents getting it for me without me even asking, but like I said it's not my style.
I'm more of an aggressive//ramp guy that likes all the colors evenly. I play in a %75 meta, and would love to figure out a new deck that isn't temur or bantchanments, but would love to see if I can turn the enchantress precon into something I'd love to play.
Thanks in advanced!

After purchasing the Adaptive Enchantment deck, I'm finding myself having a lot of fun playing around with it. All 3 commanders for it seem very fun and unique, I just can't decide, as I look to buy some singles for it, which I should build around.
My playgroup is more %75 than anything, and I love having fun unique decklists, but nothing TOO voltrony, although I do love auras, and going tall and sorta wide interests me.

Hi Natalbee, Thanks for your suggestion. I never thought of adding the unblockable part before. I am going to add Herald of the Pantheon,Eidolon of Blossoms and also Kestia, the Cultivator The +1 tokens do not work optimal with flickerform, since they would be lost when flickerin in my own creatures. Perhaps I should ditch the flickerform concept... hmmm. Also I am going for a Glen Elendra Archmage this would be ideal to flickerform and add some more counter.

Some way to make Tuvasa (or anything else) unblockable would be good. A Flitterstep Eidolon, Whitewater Naiads, or Thassa, God of the Sea. And if you plan on bouncing your creatures, maybe something like Cathars' Crusade could be useful? There's also ways to turn your enchantments into creatures, like Starfield of Nyx. I also see 0 cards with Constellation or Bestow. Eidolon of Blossoms could be nice to add to your cast-enchantment-and-draw-card cards. Herald of the Pantheon is also pretty cooooooooool. As is Kestia, the Cultivator. And not sure if you're into combos, but Enchanted Evening and Ajani's Chosen go infinite and are pretty good on their own.

Hi CaptSillva, thanks for your comment! With the two creature tutors, I have effectively 10 creatures, which is pretty low, but I've tried to tailor them to what the deck really needs. From playing with this deck, I typically have enough pillow fort or interaction for problem creatures that I don't get beat down too hard early on. Courser of Kruphix is great source of card advantage though, and I always forget that it's an enchantment creature. I'll try to find room for it somewhere!
Hypnotic Siren, Kestia, the Cultivator, and Kruphix, God of Horizons seem a bit too high CMC for their effects IMO. Nyx-Fleece Ram is cheap and a good blocker, but I think in this deck, I would generally rather run a good interaction enchantment (like Prison Term or Darksteel Mutation) over the Ram because enchantments are overall less likely to be removed than creatures. At least that's my thought right now, what do you think?
I've had Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence in the deck before, but they've felt like more of a liability in most situations. If I play them to improve my board state and don't win on the spot, most times a board wipe will come down and destroy my whole game plan. They are pretty potent as a win condition, but I feel like the Enchanted Evening combos are a bit less fragile and easier to pull off.

I feel like this deck could use a few more bodies on the ground. Maybe you could consider these Hypnotic Siren, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Courser of Kruphix, Kestia, the Cultivator, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Starfield of Nyx, and Opalescence.

^^^ more lands.
Also you don't have a lot of good aura targets. Ajani's Chosen is great as a token producer and gives you the option of going wide. Card: Cephalid Constable is totally insane. Cold-Eyed Selkie is also pretty insane. Eidolon of Countless Battles get gigantic very quickly. Invisible Stalker is hexproof and unblockable, and need I say more? Kor Spiritdancer is a great draw engine and also gets very large, very quickly. Rafiq of the Many is a legendary voltron target, literally and metaphorically.
You're also missing some great enchantments and synergies. Argothian Enchantress, Herald of the Pantheon, Kestia, the Cultivator, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Propaganda, Aether Tunnel, Aqueous Form, Banishing Light, Bear Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Grasp of Fate, Mirari's Wake, Rhystic Study, Song of the Dryads, Spirit Mantle,

Your deck have one more card than allowed. It is 100 cards including commander. The way you are listing you have 101 cards.
Wouldn't Kestia, the Cultivator be better for the build you want to make? You can run other cheap enchantment creatures in order to trigger its effects.
I suggest using Mesa Enchantress.
Another good enchantment for providing unblockability is Flickering Ward.
