Starfield of Nyx
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return target enchantment card from your graveyard to the battlefield.
As long as you control five or more enchantments, each other non-Aura enchant you control is a creature in addition to its other types and has base power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost.

Seems like a pretty solid stax deck, but there are a few things that need to be smoothed out, mainly in your creatures.
2: Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton, and Bloodghast: all good cards, but not necessarily on your deck. Even as a stax/stall deck, you are not going to beat someone down from 40 with a bloodghast. They will be able to kill it or kill you before you win. Instead, I would recommend one of three things, or a combination of them. A: put in Starfield of Nyx as a beatdown strategy. Since you have lots of enchantments, you can kill someone easily with this. B: Myth Realized get huge very fast. Since you are a grindy deck, this thing can start three shotting people before they are able to win through your stax. C: add in more stax stuff, like Vryn Wingmare or maybe something like Frozen AEther.
4: you have lots of lands and more than enough ramp that you don’t need them. I wouldn’t recommend playing any more than 37 lands.

Love it. I've always wanted to play bant colours in commander, to run the Sunbond + Fathom Mage + Horizon Chimera combo. Not sure if it fits here though. Try Starfield of Nyx. I was surprised it wasn't here already, since it's in the deck title ;)

This is a sweet deck for your first brew! If I would critique anything it’d be that there are some better enchantments you could be running in place of some Auras you have. Starfield of Nyx, man! Don’t forget Doomwake Giant!

Hi CaptSillva, thanks for your comment! With the two creature tutors, I have effectively 10 creatures, which is pretty low, but I've tried to tailor them to what the deck really needs. From playing with this deck, I typically have enough pillow fort or interaction for problem creatures that I don't get beat down too hard early on. Courser of Kruphix is great source of card advantage though, and I always forget that it's an enchantment creature. I'll try to find room for it somewhere!
Hypnotic Siren, Kestia, the Cultivator, and Kruphix, God of Horizons seem a bit too high CMC for their effects IMO. Nyx-Fleece Ram is cheap and a good blocker, but I think in this deck, I would generally rather run a good interaction enchantment (like Prison Term or Darksteel Mutation) over the Ram because enchantments are overall less likely to be removed than creatures. At least that's my thought right now, what do you think?
I've had Starfield of Nyx and Opalescence in the deck before, but they've felt like more of a liability in most situations. If I play them to improve my board state and don't win on the spot, most times a board wipe will come down and destroy my whole game plan. They are pretty potent as a win condition, but I feel like the Enchanted Evening combos are a bit less fragile and easier to pull off.

I feel like this deck could use a few more bodies on the ground. Maybe you could consider these Hypnotic Siren, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Courser of Kruphix, Kestia, the Cultivator, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Starfield of Nyx, and Opalescence.

You've got some nasty combos! I like the Decree of Silence + Solemnity combo! Nice way to lock the game down in your favor! Didn't see the deck in action yet, but could Starfield of Nyx be good for recursion and ending games faster?

I've been running a G/W Enchantress deck in Modern for a while now. Here's some recommendations that I'd make.
First off, Idyllic Tutor is very good. The 3 mana cost may seem high, but with Arbor Elf and Utopia Sprawl, it is very easy to cast. It also lets you run your deck in more of a "tool-box" style, letting you rely on silver bullets to more easily take on a variety of decks.
Once you're running 4x Idyllic Tutors, combos become much more accessible. An easy one to hit is Heliod, God of the Sun + Worship. This combo means you cannot die until the opponent can get rid of one of the pieces first. Since Heliod is Indestructible, that adds a layer of protection to the combo. The best part is that both of these cards are good individually in this deck, even if the combo isn't established. Heliod is a great mana sink, that adds to Sphere of Safetys power as well as providing blockers, while Worships effect is just as useful if you've got 3-4 random creatures in play. The Tutor also allows you to grab both Greater Auramancys once you have a useful board state, making your board state incredibly difficult to remove, and causes you to be less reliant on lucky draws.
Some other good silver bullet cards are Authority of the Consuls to slow down the opponent and prevent some combos, as well as add passive life gain against wide creature strategies. Ixalan's Binding is a great "cover's everything" removal spell, and it prevents them from casting that spell again which can completely shut down some combo decks. 4 mana is nothing with Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl. Leyline of Sanctity is a great silver bullet against a lot of decks. Burn is the most obvious one, but most decks run some form of hand interaction with cards like Thoughtseize and what not. This shuts those cards down and turns them into dead draws. Starfield of Nyx is an alternate win-con that also allows you to recover from early enchantment removal. Powerful tool to have available with Idyllic Tutor. The Tutor also allows you to run less of some of your win-cons, because you can pull them out whenever you need them. 4x Sigil of the Empty Throne will mean you'll have a dead draw in the early game and several dead draws in the late game. You can get away with just running 2x if you're running 4x Idyllic Tutor.
Mana is a huge issue that this deck faces. Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl is a great way to tackle this problem. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx also manages this problem very well. It's worth running both. This whole deck is all about dropping permanents and keeping them on the field, consistently increasing the power level of Nykthos.
After play testing with it a lot, I've found that Abundant Growth just doesn't do enough to warrant a card slot. It's an extra enchantment and it draws, but this 2 color deck doesn't have a card draw problem and doesn't have a mana color fixing problem, so it just doesn't do anything for us.
Always happy to see another Enchantress player in Modern, it's a crazy fun archetype and takes a ton of decks by surprise! Good luck fellow Enchanter!
