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.

SynergyBuild on The Abzan Enchanter's Essential Style Collection

I understand that you already went over Femeref Enchantress in the comments, but I want to make a case for just because I have loved using it.

I wouldn't classify it as protection in a normal sense, unlike a card like Greater Auramancy, but it does deter casting a Disenchant, that otherwise might have been cast. The card I believe has other uses.

It, at least in my variation of the deck, is part of the Replenish Package I run.

Vessel of Nascency, Seal of Cleansing, Seal of Primordium, Aura of Silence, Solitary Confinement, Gaea's Touch, Sterling Grove, Font of Fertility, and Seal of Doom all allow for value when being sacrificed with a Femeref Enchantress. You run 3 of those.

With Cast Out and Commune with the Gods to help fill up my yard with enchantments, Replenish-styled effects, can bring them all back, just to have them be sacrificed. I have drawn 10+ cards in one turn with Femeref Enchantress in that method.

I use Seal of Cleansing/Seal of Primordium/Aura of Silence a lot of times on my own enchantments, because if they are going to be Return to Dusted or since I run Starfield of Nyx/Opalescence for the synergy (Ay! My Name!) with Earthcraft, when an opponent Merciless Eviction and name creature thinking my board will be exiled, then I sacrifice my Seal of Cleansing targeting Opalescence and suddenly I have no creatures in reponse, it works out.

Otherwise, you don't need to run it. I just think a more replenish-based list would work well for gaining value.

Thats my whole thing about Femeref Enchantress


Onto ramp, Overgrowth works really well, I'd suggest you use it. Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, and Carpet of Flowers are must-haves in enchantress, seeing play in the most competitive and most casual lists.

Gaea's Touch and Font of Fertility are for the Replenish/Open the Vaults/Femeref Enchantress's gameplan, but that is fully up to you too.

Other than that, Weirding Wood is an interesting card, that I have been back and forth with. It is basically a big Abundant Growth.


Now onto card draw Sylvan Library is a must-have. Imagine if Sensei's Divining Top decided it was its own man, and was going to trigger when it wanted too, but as a cost it was going to cost an extra . Sound's bad right, less control and more mana? Well its in the big world, and it is going to draw all them cards! Suddenly you are drawing 2, 3 cards a turn, and sure, it costs some life, but yes!

If you'd rather have it's child, Mirri's Guile is a great addition too. Both of these cards see play in the real legacy enchantress.

Mana Bloom is good at fixing, and since it bounces back to hand, you can keep recasting it, getting more enchantress triggers, along with triggers on Sigil of the Empty Throne, Celestial Ancient, Blessed Spirits, Doomwake Giant, Thoughtrender Lamia, Agent of Erebos, and Blightcaster


Last but not least, this seems like an aggro deck, which is strange for enchantress, I'd suggest Parallax Wave/Opalescence combo (Starfield of Nyx works as well), Squirrel Nest combo with Earthcraft, and Altar of the Brood for an instant win with either.


Solitary Confinement, Ghostly Prison, and a higher removal count (Banishing Light, Journey to Nowhere, Seal Away, etc.) along with ways of slowing down your aggressive opponents (Authority of the Consuls/Blind Obedience) all lead to a much better set up, and Teferi's Protection/Heroic Intervention can be blowouts.


I'd also suggest you up your enchantment count to around 40~50, and run a lot more tutors. Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, Idyllic Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Sylvan Tutor, Chord of Calling, Summoner's Pact, Grim Tutor, Recruiter of the Guard etc.

Below is my toolbox list.

The landbase, and a lot of the deck is the same, except we run 22 tutors.

Otherwise, a the deck is more controlling, and runs the Parallax Wave/Opalescence Combo, as it fits with the enchantment theme, and runs ~9 pieces of enchantment-based removal.

The goal of all of the Grasp of Fate/Imprisoned in the Moon effects is so that Replenish becomes a blowout, with a near assured win. I decided to not go for the Traumatize, and instead Entomb our way to victory. Otherwise, I have found that by running the amount of draw that we do, discarding the bombs naturally actually works out very well.

Other combos to consider: Decree of Silence+Solemnity, Phyrexian Unlife+Solemnity, Enchanted Evening+Aura Thief

Don't forget that Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence both turn my enchantments into creatures. As they are affected by Mudslide, I would need to find a way to give them all flying which requiers another enchantment.

Ha business casual, I like that. Ima steal that term if you don't mind.

Tamanoa Manabarbs actually sounds like the greatest thing ever. I hope you run Opalescence so you can enchant Manabarbs with Keen Sense ;)

A buddy of mine has a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck that runs stuff like manabarbs and it's right in that sweet spot of jank bordering on ultimate power.

Opalescence is another great win con. Also things like Ethereal Armor to just pump something up huge. Shield of the Oversoul on karametra for a fast commander damage clock.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is also very strong in any two-or-less-color permanents deck, can help you ramp enough to close out games faster.

LuxCannonator- I like Opalescence in theory, the only problem is that Opalescence+Enchanted Evening wipes all lands from the board (as they all become 0/0 enchantment creatures). Opalescence also renders Karmic Justice useless because all enchantments become creature permanents.

I could replace Karmic Justice with Privileged Position but I really like having more enchantments in this deck that can be brought back with Sun Titan (3 mana cost or less). Thank you for all the wonderful suggestions.

To avoid milling yourself you can slide in something like Elixir of Immortality or one of the original eldrazi. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Could also do Emrakul, the Aeons Torn if no one in your area cares about the ban list.

For win cons one of the eldrazi above can work if you get to where it is you vs your last opponent. I see a starfield but maybe Opalescence too? You are a bit pillowy so Helix Pinnacle or Epic Struggle could do the job.

budlaorf Glad to see you added Replenish. I really think Academy Rector needs a spot especially if your going for the Combo Wombo. I also still think maybe a 1 off of Privileged Position(since you're mainly white).

I also forgot about Opalescence. Seems like it would be really good here just to finish them off. And if you get hit with a Back to Nature or the likes, you just replenish and call it a day lol
