Excellent start. A lot of the enchantments you have are excellent for a go wide kind of strategy. You should look into more mass token producing cards to facilitate that.

To start:

Army of the Damned

White Sun's Zenith

Entreat the Angels

Increasing Devotion

Luminarch Ascension

Emeria Angel

Captain of the Watch

Heliod, God of the Sun

Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Dont worry about what tokens they are just make a shit load. Then play other shit that is good because of that.

I would recommend not using 4x Luminarch Ascension because getting a duplicate of it does you no good.

Neat choice with Crested Sunmare! Despite the very narrow tribe/selection of horses it doesn't matter because lifegain is a very real thing and becomes a very cool win condition.... Reminds me of Luminarch Ascension... Only with lifegain instead of turbofog.

I feel your pain with Cataclysmic Gearhulk... Knowing/realizing that the card in the cycle of color you prefer is just not that great and also just having high expectations only to just under perform.

Since you have a sort of pillow fort theme going, Luminarch Ascension could be really good.

Any love for Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx?

Collective Voyage is a must have addition. Tempting Wurm also seems like a fun addition. Same with Wild Evocation.

Well of Ideas can add more draw power to the party.

Ghirapur Orrery seems like a good fit as well, all that draw power will put land in hand.

Unless you intend to use Spectral Searchlight on the weakest person, I don't think it's quite friendly enough. Akroan Horse would be fun to pass around. Luminarch Ascension would be harmless but potentially lifesaving endgame card. Assemble the Legion could also be a good one. If you are running Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex and Crawlspace are in the same vain.

Forced Fruition,Prosperity, and Fascination can be mill win conditions. Same with Helix Pinnacle

You have a lot of mana ramp so make sure you have something to do with it. Luminarch Ascension, Prosperity, and Fascination can use it.

Well tonight go so well. My only win tonight was because of a bye. Today i played against Living End Cascade, Eldrazi Tron, and W/R Burn(in thus order for rounds)

Round 1(1-2) first game was bad. He locked my lands down to 2 with land destruction and then cycled so much that by the time he cascaded for Living End he had a large enough boardstste to win. Game 2 i got a Nevermore on Living End and controlledbthe board till Luminarch Ascension was making angels. Game 3 waa tge same as the first.

Round 2(0-2) these games were so close! I almost had him game 1, he could never draw into the last piece of the urza lands. Game went so slow that he casted Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger before i could get Gideon's Intervention to show up on a draw. By the time i drew into one it was already on board. He then milled me out in both games.

Round 3(bye) technically counts as a win soo sadly my only win of the night.

Round 4(0-2) this matchup i definately needed Leylines. After tonights games i definately started ordering them. Game 1 was quick. He had my health low before i could respond. Game 2 i slowed him down with Nevermore but it still ended up the same.

cornpie987387 Took your advice on Luminarch Ascension, Supreme Verdict, and Karmic Justice but I'm going to keep Cloud Cover only because if my Illusionist's Bracers or Rings of Brighthearth are going to be destroyed it will ruin my combo potential if I don't have a way to bring them back to my hand but I think it would be a good idea to get a Rite of Replication in there one way or another.
