Opalescence

Opalescence

Enchantment

Each other non-Aura enchantment is a creature with power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost. It's still an enchantment.

Originally, Enchanted Evening wasn’t included for originality. Everyone plays it with enchantment destruction, just as those that play Mycosynth Lattice use artifact destruction.

As the deck developed, I didn’t include it as it would conflict with Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence. Simply put, your lands would die as 0/0 creatures. Opal will do the same to your opponents, but without a viable cheat to drop spells outside of Omniscience, which is target #1 for any player remotely feeble with threat assessment. This was before I added mana dorks and infinite mana generators which have been more reliable to acquire on the battlefield than dropping Omniscience.

Next, came the issue of a lot of decks running enchantment hate. Aura Shards was, among other things, popping up in my meta much more than I’d like and Karmic Justice didn’t discourage anyone. At present my only issue are global destruction spells and Cyclonic Rift, but this deck has consistently been able to reset its board state swiftly and up to 3-4 times before it burns down. Luckily for me those games are few and far between.

With the current set up I might be able to use Enchanted Evening and, once again, use Omniscience, but they are not imperative additions.

Caerwyn apologies, missed Opalescence in that combo.
Also, while I agree that there’s always a “most correct” way to interpret the rules and thus play out a game, I maintain that especially with unset cards, it’s often not worth the effort. Rules Lawyer demonstrated that in draft...

Thanks King Saproling,

I actually already have a couple of those in there, like Ghostly Flicker and Aphetto Alchemist.

Thanks for pointing out Deadeye Navigator, I initially took it out of the running because I didn't realize the potential. I could even pair it with Merieke for protection or untapping. Some indestructible options seems like a really good idea.

I really wanted to get Opalescence but that card is like $20. Using Scryfall, I couldn't find any other card that would let me turn an enchantment into a creature.

I only have 2 cards in there for untapping, Puppet Strings and Aphetto Alchemist. I'm not sure that is enough.

Any suggestions for cards to remove? The weakest links or cards that don't work or fit well?

Looks good so far! You might like these: Cloudshift (works like conjurer's closet), Kaya's Ghostform, Ghostly Flicker, Deadeye Navigator, Nephalia Smuggler, Bastion Protector (protects merieke and allows you to steal legendary creatures indefinitely), Darksteel Plate (equip to a stolen creature to keep it even after merieke untaps), Chakram Retriever, Magewright's Stone, Thousand-Year Elixir, Aphetto Alchemist, Vizier of Tumbling Sands, Adarkar Valkyrie (target a stolen creature, then untap merieke to regain the stolen creature for good), Opalescence (lets you take enchantments), March of the Machines (take artifacts), Sydri, Galvanic Genius

Greater Auramancy has never been reprinted, so it definitely deserves a reprint in this set, and WotC may as well reprint both Enchanted Evening and Opalescence at the same time (I know that Starfield of Nyx is superior to Opalescence in the majority of situations, but a reprint of the older card would still be nice).

Is part of the deal about using Coalition Victory that you don't play with 5 color creatures for a fast win? Or just staying true to theme? Both sound like good reasons imo.

Opalescence with Coalition Victory would be instant 5 colors on creatures (funny once at least)

5 basic lands would be easier to get with Harrow and maybe Blighted Woodland

The original Gerrard (Gerrard Capashen) is good life gain, not sure if you want to bring Volrath or the black Mirri onto your ship.

Just play 4xDoubling Season, Opalescence, and Rite of Replication kicked onto the Doubling Season. You get a total of 84xDoubling Seasons, if you include the original. Then play Eyeless Watcher.

2^85, which is something like 3x10^25, which is a bit over 1 million ;)
