Code goes here
Tainted Field isn't modern legal.
A white splash is totally viable.
White has arguably the best sideboard cards in the format. Stony Silence is great in the early game vs Tron too.

Well, It's quite useful If I manage to cast it on the 4th turn is almost as good as a Ghostly Prison.When I cast Lightmine Field what usually follows is either: players don't attack for fear of killing off their creatures, players get scared of any 1/1 creature I have, some aggro decks don't attack for a few turns (which buys me time for a board wipe), players bid their time in order to cast some heavy hitter and usually get either Journey to Nowhere or Path to Exile to the face.
I noticed it does not stop well tribal decks, such as elves, for long, since most of them will buff all the time, even though, it will still make my enemies carefully choose attackers. For that I have my blockers. I strongly recommend to always have at least a 2/2 creature to block in order to increase the opponent's fear.
By the way, since it's not a card people usually play, sometimes it catches players which forgot It's effects.

You need answers to aggro decks, I'm not sure you can live long enough to mill 1/4 of many deck's library.
Perhaps trade Soul Tithe for a direct exile/removal, That would be a great start :)
Seems fun to play, +1

Not a huge fan of Soul Tithe and would be my first cut. As for the other two it gets a bit trickier but I personally would cut, Guardian of the Gateless (think you will have enough blockers that they won't want to attack into you anyway) and Godsend: the block trigger isn't often as relavent, espicialy if you are attacking with a big creature and since no damage is dealt, lifelink doesn't work. I've seen the "can't cast" ability be relevant in edh and it often ends up just being a slightly better Vulshok Battlegear. One thing it does have going for it is that it can be tutored up with thalia's lancers but i don't know how often you would want to do that.

Hello! I found your deck on the "Advertise your Deck!" forum post today when I posted mine.
A few things here:
In my opinion, Pillory of the Sleepless is not only more flavorful but an improvement over Paralyze, as it keeps the creature from attacking or blocking and taxes some more. You won't need Kambal, Consul of Allocation, and I would suggest Dimir Machinations as a replacement, seeing as it can remove up to 3 of your opponent's threats AND tutor for any of your 3-drops (It'll be like running 2 copies of Ashnod's Altar, except one of them is attached to a disruption spell) . While I'm a fan of the flavor of Stab Wound, Banishing Light/Oblivion Ring would be better fits in this slot, as they dont influence the curve, and can also eliminate any non-land threat while still leaving you with enchantments to make Underworld Coinsmith happy. Reanimate could be a better fit than Raise Dead in that slot, the most life you'll lose is 3. Soul Tithe could be replaced by Banishing Light/Oblivion Ring, or by a simple Mortify. Other suggestions I have include Shred Memory, Mimic Vat, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, and Fate Forgotten.
I can totally see an Ornithopter or Memnite appearing in this deck, to repeatedly sacrifice to Ashnod's Altar, have an Athreos Trigger, then repeat until you force the opponent to take the 3 life while generating a ton of mana. Use some reanimation spells to do it again!
If you're having trouble cutting a card for an extra removal or taxing spell, Underworld Coinsmith is a good cut, he doesn't have enough potential to be necessary to the deck.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for taking the time to look at the deck and give me some feedback. Glad you like it! About your suggestions:
- I never read the "non-aura" part of Starfield of Nyx, so I wrongfully assumed aura's would fall of... I will re-consider this card now :).
- As for the hate aura's. Oblivion ring type of effects are nice, but in commander they have a drawback: if you use them on a commander, that just get's returned to the command zone. While cards like Song of the Dryads keep the commander in play. So I've prioritized those type of aura's over oblivion ring. The drawback of both oblivion ring and song of the dryads is of course that when an opponent kills off the aura, they get their permanent back. So with the remaining hate spots I went for aura's that get rid of the things entirely like Seal of Cleansing. Soul Tithe does look awesome and I will probably give that one a try sometime.

And here I thought I played my Sigarda enchantment-heavy! You, good sir, have gone the extra mile!
And since you went there, maybe some suggestions here!
Starfield of Nyx for enchantment recursion every turn (can recur auras, and they don't become monsters if you don't want them to be ;
Soul Tithe to screw their mana or the bomb they've got on the table ;
Since you've got Green Sun's Zenith, why not play Dryad Arbor? Pay 0 for X and get a free land on the table.
Otherwise, i'd love to try out this deck in real - it was hard to find suggestions for - most of the good and useful cards are there!
Get a +1 from me, and may the Host of Herons smile upon victory for you!
