cornpie987387, thank you for your suggestions! I considered Luminarch Ascension but found that I prefer Sigil of the Empty Throne. Open the Vaults and Mesa Enchantress, however, are worth looking into. I'll experiment a bit and see if those are worth mainboarding or at least sideboarding. Thank you again!

I have a white and blue enchantment deck, and I found a things. One: Luminarch Ascension is stupidly good, you should put one or two in. Two: My bane is enchantment wipes like Spring Cleaning so take a Open the Vaults and also screw mill decks. Three: Aura of Silence is nice for when your opponent is one of them indestructible artifact lovers. Four: Mesa Enchantress is your friend if you find yourself running out of cards in your hand.

Cutting cards is something I struggle with too! :0S

Once a deck has a solid land & mana base, as well as a bit of removal, I try to stick to a deck's theme.

You could cut Tyrant's Familiar, for being 7 mana and not really on theme. You might cut Filigree Angel for being double white and 8 mana in a four colour deck.

You may cut Open the Vaults because it affects everyone, but then sometimes that's half the fun. In the same vein you may cut Hellkite Tyrant, because it turns out it's not fun after all.

Honestly it depends on how much your meta/group values power and efficiency over just dumb fun. E.G. I don't use Attrition or Glare of Subdual in token decks because they choke the game.

I just don't want to dictate what you find fun in a deck.

The build looks pretty solid. I do want to point out though is that Karakas is banned in Commander so you cannot use it. Also, your board can be cleared quickly by cards like Back to Nature and then are subject to getting exiled by, say aTormod's Crypt.And since Enduring Ideal, Replenish, and Open the Vaults are all sorcery speed, they could exile them all before you could recover them and because Back to Nature doesn't target any enchantments, protection nor shroud would stop it. i suggest finding an instant speed way of preventing this.

Thanks for taking a look over! I find that a bit hilarious you made that connection. Although, once you made that connection, my brain tried making the connection between Samurai Jack and the IRS. My mind went through some pretty weird roads with that one...

Anywho, apologies, but I already have Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward in the deck. Open the Vaults benefits my opponents too much, while Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward I can abuse on my turn.

As for Winter Orb, I agree it would be epic to lock down my opponents. Sadly, that isn't what I'm aiming for in this deck. I was trying to make a deck that offered as little taxing as possible outside of Kataki himself. Literally one of the gimmicks I do when I play this deck with my playgroup is apologize each turn for them having to pay their upkeep. Makes the game's air more lighthearted than competitive despite being semi-competitive.

I am currently working my way through rewriting all my deck's descriptions so I apologize again if you misread something in there, or more likely that I failed to implement the right context. Thanks again!

I think this deck represents the IRS perfectly. A paradoxical system that steals your money just because you have resources.

Open the Vaults and Second Sunrise and Faith's Reward might fit here. If you are unable to pay your taxes, well, you'll need an extrajudicial way to get your assets back!

Winter Orb also helps to lock down your opponents, and you can discard it when it's no longer helpful to you.
