Sacred Mesa Discussion

It is a really great Enchantress build. Some suggestions: Copy Enchantment gives more utility. Leyline of Anticipation lets you play reactively. Burgeoning should be included, because it lets you put all lands you draw with Mesa Enchantress and friends on the battlefield - and you draw a lot in this deck. Duelist's Heritage is a great political card, since you can give double strike to your opponents' creatures to take someone out. Aura Thief+High Market combo nicely with Enchanted Evening. You may also try Solemnity. It comboes with Phyrexian Unlife (you can't die since you can't have poison counters), Lost Auramancers (that can be immediately killed with High Market to bring Decree of Silence so no one but you can play Magic), Glen Elendra Archmage (counter all noncreature spells your opponents cast), Glacial Chasm (never be attacked again), Mystic Remora (free draws throughout the game). Collective Restraint is another Propaganda effect that comboes with Shock Lands and Prismatic Omen. // Have you tried Tuvasa the Sunlit as the commander and Mind's Dilation instead of Sunbird's Invocation? Tuvasa is a enchantress and finisher on the command zone that can be recast at least 2 times before being expensive. Also, a 3-color mana base is way smoother than a 4-color one. You can even run less taplands to chain a turn 1 Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl or Birds of Paradise or Burgeoning into a turn 2 Tuvasa the Sunlit. // If you want to stick to Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, you can put Tuvasa the Sunlit in the 99. Fertile Ground can help you reach K&T on turn 3 (land enchantments are better than land ramp in this deck, since they can draw you cards with an enchantress even in late game). Nature's Lore also can guarantee K&T on turn 3. You might also consider Selesnya Sanctuary, Azorius Chancery and Simic Growth Chamber - K&T can put them on the battlefield at end of your turn, so you don't lose tempo. Blasphemous Act is a great boardwipe on Red. Assemble the Legion and Sacred Mesa create more tokens. Purphoros, God of the Forge, Kruphix, God of Horizons and Keranos, God of Storms are also solid.

Your token production is heavily dependent on Rhys. I think you should diversify your means of token production somewhat. Cards like Mobilization, Sacred Mesa, Heliod, God of the Sun and Oketra the True can stick through a wrath effect.

Oh? Then if you want to make it a life deck, I'd encourage you to take a look at Karlov of the Pings. It's a life gain deck of mine, has a lot of great stuff. However it should be noted that to truly break Krav's ability there should be some token producers too.
Benevolent Offering can win you some friends on the table. Brimaz, King of Oreskos is a powerhouse. Captain's Claws can be equipped to Regna. Cenn's Enlistment can get rid of garbage lands. Doomed Traveler is a generally great card. Entreat the Angels is awesome. Ghoulcaller Gisa is oddly both a sac outlet AND token producer. Hero of Bladehold is a legend. Hidden Stockpile is honestly pretty good. Hoofprints of the Stag and Krav work great together. Hunted Witness is a slightly worse Doomed Traveler, Icatian Crier is a great way to pitch lands. Legion's Landing Flip is a nice one-drop and a permanent source in the late game. Leonin Warleader is nice. Lingering Souls is a classic. Militia's Pride, along with all these other cards, makes me wonder if attack-based tokens is a viable modern strategy. Mobilization is great if the game gets stagnant. Monastery Mentor is soooo good. Necromancer's Covenant is insane against aristocrats. Ogre Slumlord is a great rattlesnake and honestly the freaking best. Ophiomancer isn't quite as good, but still nice. Patrol Signaler- again with the attackers! Pawn of Ulamog could also be a great mana source, in the same vein as Sifter of Skulls. Promise of Bunrei seems really good. Quest for the Gravelord is a good thicc boi. Raise the Alarm is actually pretty underrated. Regal Bloodlord is great here. Sacred Mesa is great, and very repeatable. Smothering Abomination would be devastating here. Sengir Autocrat is 4 sac targets. Skirsdag High Priest can make some thicc bois. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis are both perfect for this deck. Twilight Drover is also freaking amazing. Wingmate Roc is, once again, practically designed to be played here!

Sacred Mesa gives me enough reason to add back in Fertile Ground. I’m already running Wild Growth. I’ve run all the above mentioned enchant land cards you’ve listed in previous builds of this deck and was never satisfied, even when Estrid, the Masked was the commander. Exploration and Burgeoning offer more towards ramp with inclusion of draw and Land Tax.
I’m already running Satyr Enchanter, Eidolon of Blossoms, Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Mystic Remora, and Sylvan Library, not to mention my Commander is a guaranteed turn 2-3 drop. Also, I can always tutor my enchantress pieces in multiple ways. Inclusion of two additional enchantress cards with double mana costs is not as good as you think.
Aurification and Dissipation Field are actually worthless pillowfort choices as Commander damage or an all out assault can still kill you when up and opponents have possiblility to reobtain their creatures. Taxing effects are often more effective to discourage assaults as well as being cheaper to cast. Elephant Grass is listed on my maybe list, but is not prime choice due to cumulative upkeep and gives no card draw unlike Mystic Remora.
Overall my deck shuts down opponents very effectively so they can’t interact with me, but I can still touch them. Either opponents die to combat damage, Commander damage, or scoop due to lack of ability. I do like that Sacred Mesa that you mentioned.

Earthcraft has a couple more combos that can be easily included here. By using an enchantment like Wild Growth on a basic plains, you can then use Earthcraft to combo with Luminarch Ascension and Sacred Mesa.
For ramp, include enchantments such as Fertile Ground, New Horizons, Utopia Sprawl, Overgrowth, Awakening Zone, and Weirding Wood. These will trigger your tuvasa draws and also will combo with earthcraft, and should probably be included over your signets and Thought Vessel. I would shoot for ten reliable ramp cards and ten reliable draw cards, putting in as many enchantress effects as possible.
Hope this helps! +1

I've been playing a very similar Ephara list with excellent success. I enjoy the subtlety of the deck compared to things like Grand Arbiter Augustin IV or Brago, King Eternal, which tend to draw lots of hate, whereas Ephara flies under the radar. Some of the cards that have done some solid work for me have been Talrand, Sky Summoner, and Monastery Mentor, (with Baral, Chief of Compliance) though your spell count may be a little low to justify those. Also, while it is a little janky, Sacred Mesa has done a fair amount as well. One card you may want to consider is Approach of the Second Sun, as it does a fair job of being a more reliable alt-win con when you have the board locked up, and has stolen me many a game. How has Angel of Serenity been for you? It never seemed to make it past my maybe-list, but seems strong. One thing I noticed is a lack of ramp, which is something you may want to consider remedying, as it really helps get you out in front of big dumb green decks. Cheers, and try not to be mocked mercilessly for playing "a bad god (LIES!)," while stomping the holy heck out of your play group!
