Enchanted creature has lifelink. (Damage dealt by the creature also causes its controller to gain that much life.)
Terese Nielson. Anything by her, pretty much. Enter the Infinite , Eternal Witness , Lifelink , Angel of Jubilation , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Call of the Conclave , Despise , Dismember , Dryad Militant , Elder of Laurels ... I could go on.
Valentine35: Thanks for the input. While it may seem weak in some decks, I feel this deck can properly abuse Righteous Authority . I'm gonna try it out at least before cutting it. While this isn't all out control, I need to keep my opponent from using pesky things that hurt my deck (and believe me it is hard with the contorl I have in my other EDH decks). I may go down two lands, but the Gilded Lotus stays since it helps with ramp. Lifelink helps as well, but may drop it if I see it is unneeded.
i have a Zur enchant EDH deck A Delicate Veil and i found that Righteous Authority doesn't work as well as you might think, so i think that could get cut, along with with either Dissolve , Dissipate , or Cancel i usually don't worry what my opponents are doing in EDH as much as i worry about getting my own stuff out, and since this isn't all out control you could afford to drop one or 2 or all of them since you have other good counterspells. also your mana curve isn't that high in this deck so you could probably affor to cut down on 2x land. i would also dorp Gilded Lotus and Lifelink , they just don't seem to be needed or worthwhile in here. That makes 8 dropped cards...let me know if that helps at all.
Blakkhand: Thanks for giving your input. I agree Cradle of Vitality would be better than Sunbond . Lifelink is there to help until I get True Conviction or something else out. It also is helpful. Aqueous Form lets me scry, and although it is more risky, I find it well worth it.
Any suggestions of what to cut? Still got too many cards .w.
Those are good changes you're considering mostly, but Lifelink is mostly not powerful enough. I'd rather use Basilisk Collar or Loxodon Warhammer but didn't feel you would prefer one of those (they can be reused whereas Lifelink can't be). If nothing else consider Spirit Loop - it's not keyworded so it potentially stacks with True Conviction , and it comes back if it or the creature it enchants is destroyed.
@nobu_the_bard: Daybreak Coronet can go, but Lifelink is to stay. Spellbook and a basic land are coming out for Reliquary Tower . Tezzeret the Seeker is an artifact tutor and can be used with the artifacts to ramp. May or may not stay, unsure at the moment. The Ordeals were also meant to be buffs. Might take them out though. I wanna add Eidolon of Countless Battles and True Conviction
You asked in Deck Help for assistance making cuts. I'll try to make some suggestions.
First I would cut Daybreak Coronet
, though it appears powerful, it encourages you to stack it with another Aura which creates a tempting 3-for-1 target in EDH that may put you at a serious disadvantage.
I would also cut Spellbook . You don't have anything that benefits from having low cost artifacts or free colorless spells or the like; anytime it isn't serving its main purpose it is a dead card (unlike Venser's which will usually benefit you a bit).
I would suggest cutting Tezzeret the Seeker . He's powerful but you only have three artifacts his +1 can potentially target meaningfully. You don't have enough artifacts to get the most out of him.
If you feel you still need the above effects I can make replacement suggestions. I would like to see the deck with those adjustments (or whatever adjustments you decide to make if you don't take my suggestions) before I make more suggestions. I note the deck has few ways to protect its creatures directly (such as Swiftfoot Boots which makes an Aura-heavy deck potentially risky.
