No Greater Good ?

Saffi Eriksdotter works well with Sun Titan or just brings backs a utility creature like E-wt. Not a serious suggestion, just interesting.

Miren, the Moaning Well and High Market so your commander doesn't get stolen (life gain from well is very nice too).

I don't have much experience with enchantress, but make sure you have every "play enchantment, draw spell" to ensure gas

What is revelark's purpose if there is no karmic guide or sac outlet or even tutors to put them in the yard, recursion? If so, might I recomend Emeria Shepherd . It's continuous recursion (albeit more expensive). Notably, it interacts with Sakura-Tribe Elder . Sacking steve to get a plains, shepehered to bring back steve, rinse and repeat. Survival of the Fittest can find both pieces (is an enchantment itself). Also works with Reverlark too.

Is Wind's of abandon better than Swords to Plowshares ? Overload is cool for sure, but thats an expensive wipe that ramps your opponents. Why not get cheaper, instant speed removal that doesn't? Even path IMO is better.

Yavimaya Hollow - For additional protection

Hall of the Bandit Lord - Haste? Not sold on this one, just an idea.

Once you get the strip mine (I know you're still waiting on some), replace field of ruin. The additional land names can fuel field of the dead.

Hell, maybe even consider a Command Beacon (after playtesting) if your commander dies too often, you can get a quick reset.

Cut Sigil of the Empty Throne for Privileged Position . Sigil is win-more. Doesn't provide any immediate impact and angels are nice, but eh IMO. Position works immediately and becomes a BITCH to deal with, with sterling grove on the field.

Heroic Intervention is probably better than position an sigil. Intervention gives you a 2nd form of instant speed response protection (only have teferi at moment)

Sigil of the Empty Throne is not only a good enchantment for this deck, it is also a flavour win. According to Christian legend, when the War of Heaven was over, God cast the rebellious angels into Hell and kept the loyal angels with him. Fairies were originally angels that remained neutral in the war and were cast to Earth. The Magic Mirror could be fun in this deck, seeing as it is included in so many fairy tales. Merciless Eviction is a more than decent boardwipe. Door of Destinies , Icon of Ancestry and Scion of Oona are also pretty decent additions to this deck.

I hope these suggestions have helped!

Kavle on Does this work the way ...

Ok, say I have a Nyxborn Shieldmate as a creature out enchanted by another Nyxborn Shieldmate, another creature enchanted by Necromancer's Magemark , and a Blood Funnel .

I cast another Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting either your already enchanted Nyxborn Shieldmate (both aura sheildmates become creatures) when you sacrifice the creature sheildmate for Blood Funnel .

Additionally, because the creature sheildmate was enchanted by an aura, it has Necromancer's Magemark raise dead effect returning it to my hand.

From this point I could cast the returned Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting one sheildmate, and sacrificing the other.

There would be other cards that work well with this like Athreos, God of Passage , Blood Artist , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Sigil of the Empty Throne , and my favorite Bitter Ordeal .

And I found this hiding: Bestow and Cost Modifications

I'm just making sure this part is correct: "So, by the time you get to applying Thalia, it’s a noncreature spell and will cost you 1 more. By the time you get to applying Heartless Summoning, it’s not a creature so you won’t get the discount."

If Thalia, Guardian of Thraben would increase the cost because it's a noncreature, then Blood Funnel should reduce it too, right?

I think I answered your question and brought it back around to my question in maybe too many words there lol.

In the spirit of giving deckbuilding advice, and at the risk of sounding a bit obtuse, I don't think this deck is going to be competitive in Modern. Your only real protection is Sphere of Safety , which is too slow for Modern, and you will not realistically be able to benefit from either Celestial Ancient or Sigil of the Empty Throne , since you'll likely be tapped out after casting either, and will have to wait a whole turn before you can get any benefit. Finally, auras are just a bad strategy in a format with so much removal--your opponent can easily take out two of your cards using one of his or her own.

That said, Selesnya enchantments can be a fairly competitive deck, but it is an aggressive one, rather than a control one. The deck, often known as Bogles or Aura Hexproof, revolves around Slippery Bogle , Gladecover Scout , and Kor Spiritdancer to quickly drop low-cost hexproof creatures then start swinging with cheap enchantments like Rancor and other 1 mana auras (as well as Daybreak Coronet and maybe 1-2 copies of Spirit Mantle ).

However, if you want to keep with this plan, here are a few suggestions:

  1. Add some ramp, like Llanowar Elves (or the less budget-friendly Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch ).

  2. Add some more interaction, such as Path to Exile and maybe Naturalize in your sideboard.

  3. Add a few of the creatures from Bogles, even if you do not want to commit 100% to that strategy.

I feel Sigil of the Empty Throne could be pretty decent in this deck. Oath of Lieges may also be a fun addition, if you ever wish to put a group hug element into this deck. I feel that more hoofed creatures should be added, so maybe consider Loyal Unicorn . Ethereal Armor could be of use to you. Hyena Umbra , Eland Umbra and Umbra Mystic are fun additions if you ever decide to go towards a Voltron strategy.

I hope these have helped!

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.

Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .

I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.

For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety

I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head
