Dude! Thank you so much for your constructive feedback and suggestions. I really appreciate it, as I want this Deck to be as good as it can be. I would love to see your build,but I didn't see it on your page.
Let's see, where to start. I agree the Birds of Paradise could be cut, but I believe hexproof/ramp creatures are better than mana rocks in this build as they offer a mana dork that has great evasion, can be enchanted to be made bigger, and can attack and/or block, therefore, better than artifacts that won't trigger my enchantresses. Land Tax not only allows me to pull all of the extra basic lands out of my deck, but also allows me to change the top card of my deck if I don't like what I see there with the Courser of Kruphix, Mul Daya Channelers, or Vizier of the Menagerie.
Quietus Spike, Grafted Exoskeleton again, not enchantments, and not cohesive to enchantress build. therefore inferior to bow and spear. Also, Spear of Heliod double as buff and removal. Bow of Nylea quintuple action, lifegain, removal, recursion, buff, and deathtouch.
Mana rocks, again, not enchantments. Frontier Siege, you ask?? it provides an extra 2 green mana during first main phase, and Another 2 green mana on 2nd main phase. that's 4 mana per turn. how can you top that for ramp?
Femeref Enchantress? Boardwipe insurance indeed, also every time anyone kills an enchantment I get to draw a card, including when I do it....Card draw = more cards in hand, no matter where it comes from. Speaking of card draw, I should prolly add the Reliquary Tower good call.
Gift of Immortality is one that's been in and out of the deck again and again, I like it, but there are so many good cards to choose from, and it seems to keep getting cut, I'll try it again. Replenish is great, however I don't have it, and it's pricey. Umbra Mystic I have and again, she's in and out depending on how I feel that day, or if I'm doing multiplayer, vs 1v1.
Bronzehide Lion I haven't pulled yet, And while indestructible is good, it doesn't have hexproof like it's older counterpart, Fleecemane Lion and is as such, inferior, plus it's situational, as you have to have open mana to use it's abilities, plus the loses other abilities clause is kinda weak.
I think I have Sigil of the Empty Throne I can give that a try as well. The other cards, I don't have, But I will consider them.
Again, thanks for the feedback, and I would love it if you wish to try and change my mind on any of these suggestions.

I put together a similar sort of deck the other day. Here are a few of my differences:
- Bronzehide Lion
- Kitsune Mystic Flip is a combat trick
- Krond the Dawn-Clad
- Nomad Mythmaker and Sun Titan for recursion of auras
- Umbra Mystic if you are dealing with board wipes
- Song of the Dryads, Darksteel Mutation and Kenrith's Transformation for board control
- Gift of Immortality is nuts
- Sigil of the Empty Throne is an alternative win con
- Sphere of Safety

Shielded by Faith makes infinite tokens when your general is out! You might like these too: Starfield of Nyx, Sun Titan, Crystal Chimes, Flickerform (super fun with dudes like Heliod's Pilgrim), Skybind, Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, Eidolon of Blossoms, Ajani's Chosen, Archon of Sun's Grace, Sigil of the Empty Throne, Bramble Elemental, Flickering Ward, Broken Fall, Molting Skin

Lrhoydich the reason I never brought up Enchanted Evening is because I really only thought of it as an extra piece of utility to help get some extra card draw from my Enchantress's, the synergy with Archon also works with Sigil of the Empty Throne and works great with Greater Auramancy too, though now you've said it adding in Cleansing Meditation that is a great piece to add definitely so thanks for bringing it up. :)
As for Serra's Sanctum I sadly cannot afford that right now but it's 100% on my to buy list. Overall though I'm glad you like the deck!

@sergarrick, there isn't really a specific card I "usually" tutor for, but it's just whatever I need at the time, adds a bit of consistency. If I'm at the point of turning the corner, I'll grab a Sigil of the Empty Throne, if there's a permanent I need to deal with, I'll grab a Cast Out etc.
It lets you run less copies of the win conditions and more niche cards, whilst still maintaining a certain level of consistency that you wouldn't have otherwise.
I don't usually keep it in against the more aggressive decks, because taking turn 3 off to tutor for something is often too slow, but it's great in slower matchups where I need a specifc answer to a threat.

I'd say you don't really need either of the two planeswalkers you have listed. Martial Coup and March of the Multitudes just doesn't seem to fit here, sure they'd be nice, but when it comes time for cuts, ya gotta make tough choices and I think focusing on enchantments is your best bet.
Not to complicate things too much, I do have a few cards for you to consider adding, though I know you're in the 'tough cuts' phase... Sigil of the Empty Throne and Ajani's Chosen will both make you more bodies and Umbra Mystic will help keep your enchanted creatures alive. Divine Visitation will make those soldiers into vigilant flying angels and Snake Umbra will draw you even more cards Helm of the Gods and Three Dreams are both great utility cards for you here. Darksteel Mutation and Song of the Dryads both can take care of problematic creatures on your opponents' board, and Overwhelming Splendor can just lock someone out of the game. Hope I helped, though I know it wasn't exactly the help you had been asking for...

Thank you so much for the help abbatromebone! I think Sphere of Safety is overall a good option despite the price tag, and I'm very thankful you kept it within my price range. I also very much like the two board wipe spells you suggested, and the lands seem important.
I do have a few issues though. For one, even though it makes sense for a Pillow Fort deck, I don't think I want to use Approach of the Second Sun . While secondary win conditions are fun, it usually throws off the Free For All, and I'd rather use a more direct win condition. This is what Phyrexian Rebirth was doing before. However, I can see why it might be flawed. Do you have any other ideas for a win condition? Maybe an unblockable creature? Sigil of the Empty Throne seems like a good idea. But would I need more enchantments to properly use that?
Also, do you think the two Myr are necessary. I certainly see the appeal, and they are very cheap, but they do take up space in the deck. Can you explain the rationale behind them?
Finally - and I know I've already asked a lot of you - if you get the chance, I would appreciate it if you looked at another deck of mine, since I've been working on it for years and just made a heavy revision: Combo Deathtouch Deck (NEED HELP IMPROVING!).
Once again, thanks for all the help!
