Yeah I know about the karametra GW enchantress build, I just won FNM pods with a semi-competitive Selvala, Explorer Returned varient at my LGS.

If you are running blue, Copy Enchantment, Rhystic Study, Estrid's Invocation, Enchanted Evening+Aura Thief, cantrips, and counterspells, along with some good removal like Chain of Vapor!

You know I have heard of the Village Bell-Ringer and Temur Sabertooth combo and I don't know why I have forgotten about it. thank you for that reminder.

I did at one point have Aetherflux Reservoir in there, I took it out, I didn't want to build the deck around life gain and or life doubler's ... Why... I don't know. a BIG LASER to the face is funny. but choking someone out with poison is somewhat satisfying.

I do have To Arms! in the deck. the reason why I have Benefactor's Draught in there is not only for untapping, but for the card draw. and card advantage is key especially with a massive amount of mana to spend.

I looked at your deck. very nice, I will definitely +1. and the best part is that it is different. which makes Selvala, Explorer Returned even better.

Decided to go from a build that runs either Rhys the Redeemed OR Selvala, Explorer Returned to a dedicated Selvala stax/elfball.

I've played it a bit and it doesn't seem to have enough elfball. Thoughts on what's working and what isn't?

Surprised you dropped Sol Ring, is it frowned upon in your playgroup? or is it just that you don't need the colorless mana. Also it seems strange to add in Doubling Cube in at the same time, is it due to the larger mana it gives with Selvala, Explorer Returned being the commander?

This is my take on Selvala, Explorer Returned

It's mostly and elf base deck with combos and finishers. Mostly around her "Parley" with ways to draw your entire Library and play anything you want with infinite mana.

I only post cards in my library if i own the card and what is in the replacement board is cards i'm either ordering or considering getting for the deck.

+1 if you like please leave a comment and if you have any suggestion let me know

Captain Sisay + max stax + elf dorks & mox + MLD + a few key pieces. Don't even waste card slots on targeted removal, you combo out too quick (hence why I don't build this Sisay deck) but this is a deck that really turn 3's people when built right. If you NEED removal, Urza's Ruinous Blast can be tutored and tends to set people back. Just use Captain Sisay + rocks + Paradox Engine + tutor up 0 cost mox... start casting, tutoring, get card draw elf Selvala, Explorer Returned, get Dromoka, lock people out... grow your rocks until you draw into MLD. ETC...

I only play W/G ;-;

Paradox Engine is another enchantress with Selvala, Explorer Returned being the commander!

Nah, I'd rather die of shame than show the Bant player my sad enchantress list, though I assume if I did show you it, I would then die of shame, so the end would be the same... That is something to think about.

Check out Why Every Commander is Competitive if you want to do me a favor though!
