I would consider swapping Ivory Mask for Leyline of Sanctity . As long as you’re main boarding it you might as well try to play it for free! Also I think Sigil of the Empty Throne has to be main boarded.

You may also want to consider Shimmering Wings , so you can cast, return to hand, repeat. Also, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for ramp, and Mark of Eviction for bouncing.

Overall, real nice though!

I'm currently making an Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle deck myself and i'm running a lot of untap cards ( Argothian Elder , Krosan Restorer , Pemmin's Aura , Freed from the Real and Counter removal cards ( Power Conduit , Clockspinning , and Chisei, Heart of Oceans .

My suggestions would be Shimmering Wings and Llanowar Scout / Sakura-Tribe Scout

Shimmering Wings can be cast as many times as you have 2 blue mana and has the added benefit of giving your creature flying.

Llanowar Scout / Sakura-Tribe Scout combos nicely with Retreat to Coralhelm .

@Control_Train I can see what you mean with veilstone. I'm going to lower my CMC in my SY - I've got an izzet build that can probably put some of the more decadent cards to better use for a grindier game - and it's telling that veilstone is actually cheaper tech for my deck, and I'm skewing too high anyway. I'm going to try it in the same sort of role as Mother of Runes I think, potentially being able to make use of it multiple times in a turn cycle if needed. Speaking of, did you find that MoR filled the same role as having a bunch of protection/indestructible cantrips? Do you find yourself missing them now? Does that provide enough coverage when you don't draw Swiftfoot Boots ? Or maybe it's easy enough to cycle through most of the deck with all the cantrips... Runechanter's Pike and Hero's Blade are too good of an opportunity to pass up on, Steelshaper's Gift or Open the Armory will probably find a home. Curator's Ward has been working well for me too, speaking of auras, as has Shimmering Wings .

That's a good point about the nature of SY as a voltron commander, do you mean more in that all the boosts are coming from Shu Yun alone? The */X fliers plan doesn't seem like a bad back-up. That's where a small tokens package seems like it could offer some adaptiveness too. What kinds of tables do you find your deck underperforms at?

I usually only get in two games a week, only about half of them lasting more than ten minutes (it's a 1-LGS town with a pretty competitive meta), so I don't get to test new tech or themes much. It's cool to see how other people are solving the same problems through other decks here though.

Dawn Charm does work.

This list is awesome, especially the categorization makes it a real good help!

Some suggestions that I haven't come across in your list:

Hope it helps.

if the thing you want is to have a deck focused on flying creatures or spells without good or bad additions, why not make a commander deck? if you already got the colors figured out you could use Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage, Azor, the Lawbringer or even Medomai the Ageless. with that combination you got a lot of ways to control the board and protection for your creatures, and add 40 more cards to the deck. Aboshan's Desire, Flood, Tidal Flats, Spirit Bonds, Invocation of Saint Traft, Angelic Favor, Entreat the Angels, Tidal Surge, Decree of Justice, Battle Screech, March of Souls, Descend upon the Sinful, Storm Herd are cards that you could use in commander but not in this deck... if you want to have a reliable way to trigger Sigil of the Empty Throne you can use Flickering Ward, Shimmering Wings, Conviction, Brilliant Halo, Gossamer Chains, Viscerid Armor, Ephara's Enlightenment and others. Aven Mindcensor, Mana Short, Boomerang, Standstill, Magus of the Moat, Bident of Thassa, Sigil of the New Dawn, Hindering Light, Supreme Verdict.

                                                                                                             ooor make a pauper deck edh or a normal one... :P

Almost forgot, if you really want to keep Akroan Crusader for it's own combo, Shimmering Wings is cheaper than Conviction

MegaMatt13 I hear you about Nylea's Collosus, its just always irked me that while its a great pump effect, there is no evasion at all involved, so whatever you pump will need something else to push it through, otherwise, chump blocks for days.

This is why I like Nylea, God of the Hunt better. Static trample for everything is fantastic, the fact that it is itself a huge indestructible beater is wonderful. The extra pump ability is icing on the enchantment cake.

Something else that jumped out at me while taking a second look at the deck - you have only one flyer. I think Sandwurm Convergence might be a worthwhile card here. Shimmering Wings would also be a strong consideration. I actually think both those cards aren't seeing enough play in Bant enchantress builds. They do their jobs very well.

More food for thought, glad I can help :)

Modern has some decent tools for heroic- while you may need red to abuse Ground Rift, or green for things like Blessings of Nature, U/W hasBlessed Alliance, Cauldron Haze, Downpour/Feeling of Dread, Shimmering Wings and the like.

Eerie Interlude/Ghostly Flicker gives a lot of removal protection. Gigadrowse works well.

The big thing is getting that balance between creatures, protecting your creatures, and triggering heroic, and clearing the way for attacks. In block it was achieved by bestow efficiencies, but with the heroic payoff effectively being 3 card combos and every other deck having access to similar card efficiency, it is an uphill battle. Good luck with the build!
