oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Tiana's Enchanting Equipment

2 weeks ago

Hey, I'm an experienced Tiana pilot and would love to help! ( my deck link here ).

The first thing I would change is Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act because creature-only board wipes destroy the creatures, then the auras, so Tiana won't trigger for any of your auras. But board wipes like Hour of Revelation , Day of Reckoning, End Hostilities , Nevinyrral's Disk , Cataclysmic Gearhulk , Tragic Arrogance etc would make Tiana trigger on your auras. You could put in Auratog or Faith Healer so you respond to creature-only board wipes, or put in indestructible stuff like Hammer of Nazahn , Shielded by Faith , Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip etc.

Bludgeon Brawl has cool synergy with Tiana, because if Vandalblast , Scrap Mastery , Hour of Revelation etc are cast, then Tiana will trigger on your artifacts too. And if you include this, consider adding artifacts that sacrifice themselves like Unstable Obelisk , Commander's Sphere , Boros Locket , Boros Cluestone , Orazca Relic .

Along with self-sacrificing artifacts, I loved the idea of self-sacrificing auras and recycling them over and over with Tiana, especially with Sigil of the Empty Throne or Ajani's Chosen on the battlefield. Auras like Capashen Standard , Mortal Obstinacy , Flamespeaker's Will , Brand of Ill Omen , Sun Clasp , Weight of Conscience , Bound by Moonsilver , Lunarch Mantle , Uncontrolled Infestation , Inferno Fist , Guilty Conscience etc.

Other than the aforementioned cards, I'll also mention Mistmeadow Skulk which dodges board wipes, the new Swiftblade Vindicator and Smothering Tithe , Fabled Hero and other heroic cards that benefit from the aura recycling, Forgeborn Oreads and Scroll of the Masters and Mesa Enchantress for the aura recycling, Ethereal Armor , Helm of the Gods , Heavenly Blademaster , Laccolith Rig is stupid but fun, Heirloom Blade because RW sucks at draw (except this deck if you add auras that draw).

If I wanted to cut some cards from your deck, I would start with Order since it's 4 mana for a really narrow removal spell, and 3 mana to do something that odric or angelic skirmisher do (which is creatures so can be brought back into the game easier). Kwende, Pride of Femeref is essentially a 4/4 for 4 mana and is only useful for Tiana. Kitsune Mystic isn't needed with all the sacrificing and such. Authority of the Consuls and Godsend and Basilisk Collar isn't that impactful for an aggro strategy. Whispersilk Cloak gives shroud which isn't the best for a deck all about auras and equipment. Chariot of Victory isn't that good and doesn't add any power. And I would take out as many tapped lands as you don't mind, they slow down decks way too much, add Battlefield Forge .

Hope this helps makes your deck stronger!

For going on the budget wise, Enchantress Voltron is the way to go. Rafiq can get super nasty extremely fast and can threaten a kill by T3. Luckily enough as well a lot of enchantress cards have been reprinted and are dirt cheap.

Going for this route as well gives you access to a lot of utility protection as well as card advantage (CA). Exalted smack down is better in the value build but as you said your meta is comparably fast, making an voltron Rafiq is much harder to remove.

Starting off the deck, essentially cut away all cards that don't provide any advantage and run cheap enchantments such as Utopia Sprawl , Wild Growth , Fertile Ground and Burgeoning for the ramp. All enchantresses should be in here such as Mesa Enchantress , Kor Spiritdancer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Tuvasa the Sunlit , etc.

Now for the bulk of the cards, for enchantments. Off the bat one of them is Vanishing , Pemmin's Aura or Shielding Plax , these cards are our protection against targeted removal. Flickerform is also protection and can trigger CA from Eidolon of Blossoms .

For huge damage, Ethereal Armor , Ancestral Mask , Sage's Reverie , Blessing of the Nephilim can all do wonders in making Rafiq either one shot or at least a two turn clock. One of the few exalted creatures I would keep though is Sublime Archangel as well Qasali Pridemage . Their utility and damage they can accumulate is enormous enough to be considered a slot and a threat by itself.

For further ideas, I also have an enchantress deck you can look at, Tuvasa of the Eternal Aeon | Primer. Most of the card value is from the lands but, take away those and some of the expensive other cards and you can get by to at least $150 without including the cards you already own.

Feel free to ask any more help, definitely within my forte in voltron commander :P

Hi, if you want to go with the aura strategie, Eldrazi Conscription could be fun.

Mesa Enchantress and Argothian Enchantress would also be good additions. You can never have enough cards in hand.

Femeref Enchantress is also an interesting card if you have to deal with a lot of mass enchantment removel.

TeeterDance no problem! Its the nice thing about this site others will help you with the cards you never thought about. Hope it's alright to share a few. Like some other mana ramp suggestions would be Birds of Paradise , Wild Growth , Fertile Ground and Sakura-Tribe Elder (Faster then Oashra Cultivator .) Things to interact with your enchantments and benefit from them would be Mesa Enchantress , Auramancer , Heliod's Pilgrim , Herald of the Pantheon , Verduran Enchantress , Yavimaya Enchantress , and Greater Auramancy . Anyways I hope this deck treats you well, looks like a ton of fun.

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

NoOneOfConsequence I actually did playtest your deck once (I know, it isn't a great sample size by any means), yet many cards are an issue. I apologize, I really want to like a deck you post, just to not make this a dramafest, but I can't say a bad deck is good. Damnation and Wrath don't need to be put into the deck at all.

Here is a full list of cards that are particularly overpriced, and where each card I think is bad or could be better fits, if you truely believe that I can't evaluate it fairly:


Call to the Grave A slow, grindy, 5 mana variant of Porphyry Nodes .

Erebos, God of the Dead - A card that is indestructible, yet a worse Greed , a card that is too slow for even grindy stax lists in cEDH most of the time. Tutor for Greed is better than this.

Doomwake Giant - Interesting repeatable board wipe, a meta-dependent inclusion though, not good for the average cEDH meta, but does have a place in some lists. I'd drop, but could imagine many arguments for it's inclusion.

Ghostly Prison - anti-attacks, which just rarely comes into play outside of kiki-lines and the sort, a strange meta-dependent inclusion, but I coudl much less justify this one.

Karmic Justice - Cool card, but often enchantment removal comes in the form of bounce or exile, and so this effect feels very off.

Kismet - again kiki-hate, so I wonder if you go against that often. It is a relatively bad card in Stasis lists, which this is not, easy drop

Vindicate - 3 mana remove 1 thing is a lot of wasted mana, easy drop.

No Mercy - Really a lot of attack-hate, strange for a stax list with a commander that generates blockers. Easy drop at a 4 mana do nothing enchantment.

Knowledge Pool - I get the Eidolon of Rhetoric / Rule of Law combo with it, but many decks have better value engines than Daxos, or can respond by killing one of the pieces, or can kill Daxos. These make this combo rarely an easy way to finish the game, requiring a ton of setup/backup that survives the lock. I think better options exist.

Sigil of the Empty Throne - A slow, 5 mana do nothing enchantment, it takes forever to get this going, easy drop.

Sphere of Safety - This much creature-attack hate? How much do you need? 1 card is often too much with Daxos in the CZ, but you run... including sweepers... like 11? Wow. Your meta must be all Edric and Blood Pod, maybe 1 Kess Twin, nah, just all Edric decks.

Damnation / Wrath of God - Too expensive for a Sweeper, honestly Toxic was all you needed with Humility as well.

Pestilence - 5 mana to get a worse Electrickery , 6 mana to get a worse Pyroclasm , Sweltering Suns without cycling for 7 mana. Just really slow and weak, easy drop.

Black Market - maybe in a meta with 50 Edric decks. Outside of that, easy drop.

Coalition Relic / Worn Powerstone - just slow ramp spells, not bad cards, but Fellwar Stone / Everflowing Chalice comes first.

Infernal Tribute - Cool jank, not useful next to cards like Dark Confidant that is excluded.

Academy Rector - Just no great targets like Pattern of Rebirth in color, great card, just not here.

Grim Tutor / Idyllic Tutor - Just a bit too slow at 3 mana for a tutor. Love them, just gotta leave them. Hard drop.

Land Tax - should run the Geddon/Ravages package or leave this out.

Replenish / Open the Vaults - This deck doesn't run enough ways to sacrifice/ Entomb enchantments to make me want to include the cards.

Mesa Enchantress - Slow card draw on a weak creature is just removal bait, this deck has better cards for the slot. Harder drop.

Phyrexian Arena - A lot of math goes into why this card is generally pretty bad. Inefficient and weak in most circumstances, and needs almost 5 unimpeded turns to get enough value to be okay. Better cards for the slot.

Cabal Coffers - big mana, not worth it outside of ANS.

Vesuva - copying a land to enter tapped leaves you in a lack of mana. Weak card.

Command Beacon - easy drop, weak card.

Deserted Temple - Easy drop, weak card.

Strip Mine - Good card, not here.

Wasteland - Same as Strip Mine but worse.

Temple of Silence - scry is weak when you lose due to not having mana, easy drop

Kor Haven - Easy Drop, never gonna use that ability

Plains x4 - Not great at Fixing

Swamp x6 - Same as Plains


New inclusions (Total drops are at 42)

Base inclusions: Fellwar Stone , Prismatic Lens , Thought Vessel , Everflowing Chalice , Caves of Koilos , Command Tower , City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Exotic Orchard , Cavern of Souls , Gemstone Caverns , Gemstone Mine , and Tarnished Citadel

Total real cards left to put in: 29

Thorn of Amethyst , Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Trinisphere , Tangle Wire , Sphere of Safety , Damping Sphere , Fragmentize , Aura of Silence , Dismember , Lotus Petal , Dark Ritual , Kataki, War's Wage , Crucible of Worlds , Bottomless Pit , Oppression , Liliana of the Veil , Static Orb , Linvala, Keeper of Silence , Ethersworn Canonist , Aven Mindcensor , Torpor Orb , Planar Void , Grafdigger's Cage , Ensnaring Bridge (just for your meta), Dark Confidant , Containment Priest , Chalice of the Void , Sanctum Prelate , Alms Collector

That would be the deck.

Gift of Immortality is a better False Demise but I would recommend running both to circumvent commander tax.

Attunement is kind of a repeatable filter engine. I think the deck would operate quite well with a Mesmeric Orb also fueling the grave, and then take advantage of the low creature presence with cards like Honor the Fallen for graveyard hate.

Sram, Senior Artificer, Mesa Enchantress, and Kor Spiritdancer would be great includes to always keep you hand topped up.

Nomad Mythmaker and Retether are great grave recursion plans that don't include your commander or Replenish and it's absurd price tag..
