Serra, Avenger of the Fallen

Legendary Planeswalker - Serra

+2 Up to one target creature gets your choice of flying, vigilance or flying until end of turn.

0 Search your deck for a card named Serra Angel or Serra Avenger, reveal it, then add it to your hand. Shuffle your library afterwards.

-2 Search your library for either Entreat the Angels or Sigil of the Empty Throne. Its cost is reduced by for each Angel you control until the end phase. You may Entwine this ability if you pay life equal to the Angel with the highest power (there must be at least one Angel on the field to activate this effect.)

-10 Create four 4/4 white Angels with flying and lifelink. You gain life equal to the total power and toughness of Angels you control.


Create...Yawgmoth as a planeswalker.

+1! I really like having deadly angels beating my opponent's face in! Serra Avenger I think could fit as a lower drop!

This is my first impression. 1x Sorin, Lord of Innistrad should be switched out with a different Sorin like a Sorin Markov or something. Also I think you should take out at least on Call to the Feast. And switch the two Duress's from your sideboard for two Thoughtseize's. One or two of the Serra Avenger's should go as well, the chances of picking one up on turn 1 2 or 3 are just to high. One Indulgent Aristocrat as well they are pretty good but you could switch it for something better. All of the Child of Night's have to go. And MAYBE one high cost card to balance the mana base a bit more. Okay. Now for the add-ins. Captivating Vampire is a must have for a vampire deck, but seeing how this mostly angels I could see why if you said no. Sangromancer is terrific lifegain. Bloodghast. New Blood. Blood Artist. And definetly Whip of Erebos if your going for lifelink. Also Heirloom Blade is a good tribal card too. All in all I really like this deck you've mixed up two of my favorite tribes and make a great deck with it!

Ahhh great to see a big army of angels, so +1 just for that!

That said, I think you should lower your average CMC a bit, since twelve 7+ drops can be problematic even in casual games (and almost half of your deck costs 5 or more to play anyway). As much as I love all those huge-ass angels, maybe you could replace some of them with cheap but powerful 4-5 drops like Battlegrace Angel (lifelink), Angel of Jubilation (lord + anti-black) or Seraph of the Sword, or if you have some more money available, then you have many more to choose from like Archangel of Tithes (combat control), Shalai, Voice of Plenty (hexproof for everyone), Restoration Angel (for re-triggering enter the battlefield effects, including Seraph Sanctuary), or the golden trio of lifelink angels: Baneslayer Angel, Archangel of Thune and Gisela, the Broken Blade.

As more concrete suggestions, I think Seraph of the Sword is better than both Serra Avenger (since you can't play her until turn 4 anyway) and Guardian of the Gateless. Also I would swap Angelic Arbiter for Archangel of Tithes or Battlegrace Angel, and take out Reya Dawnbringer and Angel of the Dire Hour for some of the others I mentioned.

Regarding other spells, you might like Journey to Nowhere instead of Pacifism, or maybe Oblivion Ring/Banishing Light so it's not only for creatures.

Also, your angels won't die that often, so I would cut a couple of Defy Death for something with more utility like Survival Cache, that gives you lifegain + card drawing.

And lastly, if you take out most of your 6+ angels, you won't need Quicksilver Amulet so you could use faster ramp like Pearl Medallion or Oketra's Monument.

And that's all I can think of right now. I'll leave you the links to my angel decks in case you want to check them :) Mono-white Angels, Angels are coming, Angels and the townsfolk

You definitely want Scroll of Avacyn.

And if you want early game Angelic Page, Serra Avenger and Emancipation Angel might be good. Illusory Angel and Jenara, Asura of War if you want to splash blue. If you go smaller Angels Lyra Dawnbringer gets better too.

This ended up being really, really if it's TL;DR or you feel too critical, feel free to delete it (I wouldn't even complain at this point). Hard to really see this as an "Enchantress" deck while only being able to use Mesa Enchantress and NOT including a Serra's Sanctum to boot. Much more simply an Enchantment heavy Angel deck, which I definitely approve of since I love both Enchantments and Angels, but the title is misleading.

Enchantress is a deck centered around the Enchantress triggers of Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Eidolon of Blossoms; and if you're adding a color, you add White so you can use Mesa Enchantress and Femeref Enchantress. Without this core, it's not Enchantress.

As for the rest of the deck, it looks like it should be able to hold its own, but would probably improve with some cheaper Angels or more ramp. I used to run Voltron Akroma, Angel of Wrath and had to use tons of mana rocks just to make it playable. Akroma also cost 5WWW to get the FIRST time soooo....yeah...

Angels:Serra Avenger, Angelic Page, Emancipation Angel, Seraph of the Sword, Sustainer of the Realm, Angel of Condemnation, Seraph of Dawn, Blinding Angel, Herald of the Host, Angel of Sanctions, Angelic Arbiter, Angel of Serenity, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Resolute Archangel, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Serra Ascendant, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria.

Enchantments:Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, True Conviction, Righteous Cause, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, Endless Horizons, Spirit Loop, Karmic Justice, Nevermore, Seal of Cleansing, Sphere of Safety, Spiritual Focus, Starfield of Nyx, Worship, Moat, Test of Endurance

Rocks/Ramp:Land Tax is pricey, but the best mono white land grabber in the game.Gilded Lotus, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Manalith, Fellwar Stone, Spectral Searchlight, Darksteel Ingot, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Pristine Talisman, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Explorer's Scope, Thunder Totem, Marble Diamond.

Lands:Seraph Sanctuary, Reliquary Tower, Serra's Sanctum, Command Beacon, Path of Ancestry, Cavern of Souls

Other:Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, Howling Mine, Demystify, Disenchant, Fragmentize, Forsake the Worldly, Fumigate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Approach of the Second Sun, Faith Healer, Grand Abolisher, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Second Sunrise, Oketra's Monument

A number of these are pretty pricey (and definitely out of my price range) but as someone who plays White in every format he plays, a Tribal player and an Enchantress player, I can go on and on and on about these kinds of decks...This deck happens to have a White-centric tribe and is Enchantment based. XD My apologies.

This deck seems like it would appreciate Honor of the Pure, Serra Avenger, Aerial Responder, and Path to Exile. I like your deck, I hope my suggestions are helpful.
