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.

Starfield of Nyx Discussion

Start off with maybe 36 lands and all the signets in your colors plus Sol Ring. Since it's Nevermore tribal, play all the cards in that category. Other effects in that category are Azor, the Lawbringer, Void Winnower, and Decree of Silence with Solemnity. If you want to play those you should include even more ramp. Narset Transcendent can also do that with her emblem. Iona, Linvala, and GAAIV are good to keep in the deck. Elesh Norn, Godhead, and Ixidron as well. Sadistic Sacrament seems powerful if you can kick it.
Then add in the good removals and boardwipes, like Cyclonic Rift and Cleansing Meditation (combos with Enchanted Evening) and good point removal. Some counterspells and protection for your permanents. Maybe some recursion like Replenish, Obzedat's Aid, Starfield of Nyx, Sun Titan, Emeria Shepherd, and Sheoldred, Whispering One. Tutors to find your answers. Some card draw, and then your wincon. You could theoretically use Sen Triplets to play wincons from other opponents' hands instead, which allows you to squeeze more control elements into the deck.

Just to note: Starfield of Nyx is a nombo with auras, as creatures cannot enchant other creatures, so with starfield in play, once it activates all attached auras will fall off their enchanted creatures and become creatures of their own.

Not a fan of Starfield of Nyx here. It makes Heliod smaller, and kills all the tokens he pumps out. Perhaps Land Tax instead, since it still fits your enchantment theme, and will help make sure you don't miss land drops while significantly thinning your deck? Bit pricey though, so I'd slot in Blind Obedience if it's outside your budget, which is a nice early play that slow aggro down, while giving you a way to drain some life with extra mana in later turns.

Thanks for the advice elgosu1337!
I really like the idea of Hokori, Dust Drinker. I've considered Stasis for the deck before, but Hokori feels so much better since I'm still strangling mana generation, but don't have to play around an upkeep cost
I actually did have Opalescence in the deck with Starfield of Nyx for awhile. The redundancy was useful in theory, but consistently proved to be unnecessary and I really wanted to drop one of them for another card. I ended up deciding to keep Starfield since it can recur enchantments, and doesn't give my opponents an army if Enchanted Evening is out, even if it does blows up their lands at the same time
Emeria Shepherd was in an earlier version of the deck. Though back then I wasn't playing all the enchantress effects, Burgeoning, and Courser of Kruphix, so I might be able to utilize her much better now since I often have ample lands to trigger her landfall
I've looked at Silent Sentinel before, its super tempting, but I always get turned off by that high mana cost. Still, you're right that Mirror-Sigil Sergeant doesn't add much and the Sentinel could be a worthy replacement. The Sergeant's really only stuck around so long since he's such a good "set it and forget it" threat, but I can probably get more mileage out of him in another deck

I also noticed that you're running a lot of aura/curse tutoring and recursion, which are not very efficient for their CMC and might be a bit more than necessary. Cards like Obzedat's Aid, Replenish, Open the Vaults, Starfield of Nyx, and Cleansing Meditation could be more powerful and versatile. Austere Command is also a good sweeper for this deck since you can choose which modes work best. You might also need a bit more removal for non-creatures. Vandalblast should handle the artifacts, and Return to Dust seems efficient as well.
My recommended cuts are Kozilek, Bitterheart Witch, Heliod's Pilgrim, Auramancer, Survival Cache, maybe Restoration Specialist and Torment of Hailfire.

Really like the Linvala, Keeper of Silence + Nature's Revolt combo. Have you considered Opalescence as redundancy for Starfield of Nyx? Silent Sentinel and Emeria Shepherd could be good for recursion. Mirror-Sigil Sergeant doesn't seem to add much to your deck. Hokori, Dust Drinker should work well with the tapping and untapping theme too.

- Starfield of Nyx Not about the enchantments turning to creatures thing but the recursion is nice
- Sram, Senior Edificer more card draw from casting auras
- Alexi's Cloak
- Hunter's Insight more card draw
- Heroic Intervention Well, is amazing the number of disruptions this card will help you against
- Faith Unbroken some aura shaped disruption will do you no harm
- Acidic Slime disruption and and a body with deathtouch. When you happen to give fist/double strike and/or trample to a deathtoucher it becomes the ultimate ass kicker.
- Spirit Loop and Aspect of Mongoose more reusable auras.
- Reliquary Tower if you draw so many cards, this is a no brainer.
