Mesa Enchantress Discussion

Hey Alvatariano. Wow it's been a while since I've seen a 60 card deck haha. I'm assuming the list is cards you already own, in which case it looks like a decent start. You have a lot going on here though and I think the deck would flow better if you focus on one particular strategy.

For example, you could do a dedicated aura strategy: Thran Golem, Brilliant Halo, Tragic Poet, Dawn Evangel, Tethmos High Priest, Squee's Embrace, Mesa Enchantress, Chained to the Rocks, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Hero of Iroas, Akroan Crusader, Phalanx Leader.

Or spellslinger style: Blaze Commando, Rile, Feather, the Redeemed, Reckless Rage, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Launch the Fleet, Guttersnipe, Twinflame, Ephemeral Shields, Fists of Flame, Charmbreaker Devils.

I buy single cards on since they're usually cheapest there. I've found you get more bang for your buck when buying singles rather than booster packs (even though packs are fun to open haha). For example you could get all of the cards mentioned above for about $7.

I think subtle choices that don’t break the color pie would be the best direction for white and for the game.

Of course we want stuff for EDH, however we need to remember there are more formats impacted by this and if every color does the same things what is the point of the color pie at all? I like some of the examples given so far, like Bygone Bishop and Mentor of the Meek for weenies, Dawn of Hope for life gain, Puresteel, Sram and Spiritdancer for voltron and then Mesa Enchantress et al. (Which is really a GW strategy.)

Having generic good stuff isn’t really something that’s healthy for the game I think. There has got to be something that’s not generic, but still easy enough to use for what white wants to do. Like Feather, the Redeemed for example, or a Heroic or Exalted style trigger. Prowess is in white as well.

Colonel_Kink: Except that in your arguement, you've failed to mention that while white deos like to leverage equipment like Skullclamp, white also has THE BEST equipment tutoring in the game. Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Open the Armory, Steelshaper's Gift, etc.

And on top of that, white has a bunch of solir and repeatable card draw in the form of:

And this doesn't count all of the cantrips white has like To Arms!, Scout's Warning, etc which are all very strong effects in addition to cantripping for a cheap cost.

Yes, I get that a bunch of the forementioned cards are conditional on you playing a particular strategy. But if you're commited to playing mono white, chances are you're playing one of the strategies that white excels at anyway. And if you're determined to not playing one of the strategies that white plays into, then sorry but that's on you.

Ryland7 on Estrid Mana ramp

Hey there,

First off, i really like the deck. I run Estrid in my playgroup and I have a ton of fun with her. +1 from me. :)

I see you have Sun Titan in your sideboard, but I feel like he deserves a spot in the 99. He hits more than half your deck with his etb and attack triggers.

I feel like Mesa Enchantress would be a better fit than Kor Spiritdancer. Mesa is still a may ability, but triggers off all your enchantments, not just your auras. Plus, it didn't really look like you run any creature auras, but i could be missing them. I get she costs one more but i run her and she does work like her green counterpart.

I also like to run the bounce lands that tap for two. Sure it sucks they come in tapped and you have to return a land to your hand, but they do so much when enchanted with an aura that lets them add an extra mana when they're tapped. tapping one land for 3 mana feels good, especially when you +2 Estrid and untap it to get even MORE mana.

Setessan Champion was (for me) the best card to come out of TBD for estrid/green enchantment decks in general. IMO she is better than Eidolon of Blossoms. Sure she doesn't replace herself, but with the amount of enchantments you're going to have entering the battlefield, she will get big/thicc/swole/whatever lingo you wanna say.

Sigil of the Empty Throne absolutely needs to be in the 99. I know you're trying to keep your drops to 3 and less, but it's really awesome when you're casting 2-3 low cmc enchantments and getting 2-3 flying 4/4s on your side. Especially if you have Aura Shards on the field.

these of course are just suggestions i'm making from my experience with running this commander. Feel free to disregard them or explain why you may not agree.

Take care! :)

ZendikariWol on Card creation challenge

Okay so... I hate to be that guy but... White really does have a hard time drawing cards in a flavorful or novel way. As to why, let's just look at the things White likes to do:

Gain Life? Dawn of Hope

Control equipment and enchantments? Puresteel Paladin and Mesa Enchantress

Have lots of small creatures? Mentor of the Meek

Tax spells? How do you reference that in rules text?

Hosing effects (such as Stony Silence and Containment Priest)? Normally the purpose of those cards would be defeated if instead of actually stopping the opponent you just drew cards.

Help the group? Happily Ever After.

That said, I might have something.

Catchup effects (such as Oreskos Explorer) are in White's color pie, that shows promise.

I suspect that Heartwood Storyteller, if printed today, would be printed in White, as it's mostly a hoser for noncreature spells, with group hug thrown in.

White can also punish people for doing things it doesn't want them to do (see Divine Verdict and Smite the Monstrous)

Just pointing out the difficulty of this question. It's not that White doesn't want to draw cards, it's just quite tricky to pull off effectively.

Prudent Marshal

Creature- Human Soldier

At the beginning of each end step, if a creature with greater power than each creature you control attacked this turn, you may draw a card.


This may enable some shenanigans with combat tricks, I don't know, but that doesn't really matter.

How about another flavorful white draw card?

Azeworai on Enchantment is the oldest medicine

Ah, yes. Enchantress decks are a consistent favourite of mine, much in part due to their potency and resilience.

I've tested well with Ajani Unyielding. It oft draws quite a few cards.

Mesa Enchantress, Setessan Champion, Argothian Enchantress, Commune with the Gods, and Satyr Enchanter are all wonderful.

The newly printed Destiny Spinner is horrendously strong by her own accord.

As for removal: Cast Out, Journey to Nowhere, Kenrith's Transformation, and Stasis Snare are fantastic.

I reckon this to be all from me.

Here is my decklist if you so wish to peruse: Karametra, Enchanting Goddess

May fortune be with you.

shwanerz88 I definitely like the Eidolon you suggested, my only concern is that it also limits me to only the enchantment I cast with Zur. ghostly prision and Propaganda are both solid suggestions that I will tinker with for sure. And I thought I'd added in Ethereal Armor already so it will for sure be going in.

As for the other cards: I would love to add Idylic Tutor, Heliod, and/or Thassa but they are both nearly a third of my deck's total price. Idylic Tutor's cost is actually one of the reasons that nearly everything in this list is an enchantment that I can dig for with Zur, including many of the creatures.

I considered Swords to Plowshares but I accomplish the same thing with cards like Banishing Light without giving my opponent life.

Mesa Enchantress appears to be for card drawn as opposed to life gain.

Overall some very solid suggestions though and definitely some that I will take into consideration as well as some that will be kept in mind for future upgrades.

Cool List for sure, I've got a Similar Estrid deck and I really enjoy the Enchantment base. Right off the back I would say add in Ethereal Armor for power, Auramancer for recursion, Solemnity if you wanna go towards stax, Ghostly Prison or Propagandafor protection, Swords to Plowshares for removal, Idyllic Tutor good tutor that was just reprinted, Eidolon of Rhetoric more stax, Mesa Enchantress life gain. New Heliod, Sun-Crowned and old Thassa, God of the Sea are both bomb enchantments that you can search for with Zur. Hope I was able to give you some reasonable additions. +1
