At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice Sacred Mesa unless you sacrifice a Pegasus.
: Put a 1/1 white Pegasus creature token with flying into play.

Sacred Mesa Discussion
1 week ago
I'd suggest taking out some of the embalm cards, simply because they aren't great and you need to embalm them before they synergize with your deck. So take out Trueheart Duelist, Unwavering Initiate, Binding Mummy and Tah-Crop Skirmisher. You can replace those cards with Chasm Skulker, Gather the Townsfolk, Martial Coup, Secure the Wastes, Homarid Spawning Bed, Druidic Satchel, Sacred Mesa, Oath of Gideon, Timely Reinforcements and Entreat the Angels. for better token generation.
This card needs to be in every token based deck! Intangible Virtue!!

Some stuff I think I accidentally added, but wanted to actually discuss first:+Necropotence (Do we wanna go there?)+Yawgmoth's Bargain (Theres no combo pay-off that I can see. Is this card still too dangerous?)+Ancient Tomb (Fast mana is fast, but then again you do become arch enemy pretty fast)+Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (is this too much?)+Spellweaver Volute (this card is just weird, but seems like it could be cool. Thoughts?)

- Fertile Ground
- Trace of Abundance
- Mana Bloom
- Dovescape (Im just curious about this card. Cant tell if its good or not. Certainly interesting!)
- Earthcraft (theres a cute combo with Squirrel Nest if we decide we wanna do that)
- Privileged Position
- Glare of Subdual (This gets pretty brutal with Seedborn Muse and Prophet of Kruphix in the format. Just something to think about.)
- Khalni Heart Expedition
- Oath of Druids (Finally a card we can break lol)
- Evolutionary Leap
- Primeval Bounty (is this good enough? Seems interesting at least.)
- Bounty of the Luxa
- As Foretold (Yeah boi)
- Golgari Germination (works across archetypes)
- Necrogenesis (a few decks might want this)
More stuff for Orzhov Drain:
- Trade Secrets (cards cards cards)
- Treasure Cruise (fuck it)
- Dig Through Time (fuck it twice)
- Metallurgic Summonings (Spells payoff that packs a punch)
- Mizzix's Mastery (without payoffs like storm or turnabout I think this is safe)
- Jori En, Ruin Diver (maybe not good enough)
- Melek, Izzet Paragon
- Kolaghan's Command (must include now that artifacts is an archetype)
Notes on Enchantress:
First, the payoffs are not super broken. There arent that many cards that REALLY reward you for having or interacting with enchantments, but once the deck comes together its highly synergistic. We could make people more interested in choosing Enchantress as an archetype by adding lots of g and gX enchantment-based mana acceleration in place of cards like llanowar elves (while still leaving the best dorks). Decks that would be interested in ramping might suddenly find themselves interested in enchantment cards like wild growths of bounty of the luxa. What do you think?
Also, Im worried that enchantress skews removal in general towards white. Since so much of the archetypes pulls are removals, we end up having more white removal in the cube.

She can play one of the eldrazi titans (kozilek, ulamog, etc) or a token sink such as Heliod, God of the Sun, Jade Mage, Mobilization or Sacred Mesa. Selesnya Guildmage if she wants more versitiltiy (although its pretty weak). Genesis Wave is the best for a mana sink imo, it basically wins at x = 8+
Edit: Kamahl, Fist of Krosa for more stompy goodness (especially good with elesh norn to wipe opponent's lands)

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is only like $4, so it really doesnt add that much $$ to the deck. i feel like you should probably include 2-4 of them. it also opens you up to higher drops and mana sinks like Sigil of the Empty Throne, Rise of the Hobgoblins, Sacred Mesa, Mobilization, Militia's Pride, Luminarch Ascension, Heliod, God of the Sun. Another suggestion is perhaps a 1-of Westvale Abbey Flip.

@Dark_Danda Lovin the suggestions. It's funny cause I was going to try and get my hands on some more cards like Fertile Ground to put in the deck as well as Mobilization or Sacred Mesa to add another combo. Also just picked up a copy of Sram's Expertise :)
I do love the synergies you listed that shut down opponents draws and such. Posessed portal is nasty and can do some sick things with my deck and some enchantments but I feel it's more appropriate in yours. I do want to build a bant prison enchantress deck and those cards would be amazing for that. I love Abundance and I did have it in the deck for its synergy with Sylvan Library but I felt on its own, it didn't provide enough impact.
Also, my play group ranges from people just trying to have fun to people who don't have fun unless they win and I'm in between. I like to win but not necessarily in the blink of an eye, ya know? So if I put a combo in, I generally stick to infinite tokens. Which I've been trying to find more. I know of the ones you've listed but I'm curious if you're aware of any more infinite token combos that could fit in my deck?
I really enjoyed looking through your deck and thanks again for your suggestions!

Khalni Gem you can find a better rock i think. plus this doesnt ramp you. it leaves you at parity. id only play this if you were playing a landfall deck. besides 4 is a little late to be ramping.
Spiny Starfish? i love the flavor but not sure what its doing here.
Thassa, God of the Sea shes awsome but one scry a turn isnt really worth the slot and you dont have the devotion to make her a creature. plus you dont have anything worth making unblockable.
Mana Breach can be kind of a nonbo with the rest of the deck. if you are staxing their lands down, this lets them always have one to replay untapped.
Lim-Dul's Vault is meh. it lets you stack your deck but at the cost of life and you dont actually draw the card.
Words of Waste you dont really have enough draw to make this worth it.
Ivory Tower same as above.
Venser's Journal i dont know if this is good enough. its 5 mana and by the time you can cast it you are going to need to be casting wraths, maintaining stax or trying to combo off. plus the life gain doesnt happen immediately. and again, ou dont have enough draw
Felidar Sovereign too easy to destroy. you have no ways of flashing it in.

Fine reasoning for all cards! Selfless Spirit will come down a lot when it gets out of standard. Keep an eye on that.
I run Concordant Crossroads and Thousand-Year Elixir for that type of haste. Also, Lightning Greaves does the job in a pinch and doubles as protection. Sacred Mesa is another card that spits out tokens for 2 like Ant Queen.
