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.

Enchanted Evening is a card that is on my watch list for being cut, when it works it's awesome. But with some of my favourite wincons and recursion engines Opalescence and Starfield of Nyx it kind of blows up all of my lands. I think Detention Sphere may take it's place. Thoughts?

I have been playing enchantment based decks for quite some time now and I got a couple sugestions for you:
- Grasp of Fate
- Oblivion Ring
- Banishing Light
- Journey to Nowhere
- Stasis Snare
- Imprisoned in the Moon
- Song of the Dryads
- Prison Term
- Aura Shards
Hate and Protection
And some amazing non-budget cards:

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Interesting... "Aurelia's Parhelion △ Legion of the Damned". Not a bad idea; in spite of Her being created by Feather, retaliated against her, & became a Guildleader, & Razia is a Parun… I suppose I'll deal w/ that; though I dunno about the "of the Damned" part now...
Definetely sucks, since I'm making CMDR Decks for both; including Kruphix. I'll leave the mass draw from here...
Yeah, Ajani Vengeant ; though he abandoned the Mana by the time he followed a now dead Elspeth Tirel to Theros; but if Elspeth was mentioned to be a part of Tamiyo 's Story Circle, is Elspeth REALLY ALIVE? If the Final Moments of FATE REFORGED told us nothing, I'd reference BlazBlue while I'm at it. So how did Elspeth Tirel Escape the Starfield of Nyx , & Planeswalk to Kamigawa to meet up w/ Tamiyo in the first place?
It's odd. Gideon Jura did side w/ the Boros Legion for awhile, & his background as Kytheon Iora Flip came from an area of Theros (Gideon's Home Plane) centered on Red & Mana; & most of the cards' lore based upon this further demonstrates this point. Even Heartwarming Redemption of WAR further expands the story after Gideon's death as well. Which was Ironic as he did wield Blackblade Reforged ; which is Black mana incarnate of Weaponry.
I'll talk about a Boros OC Planeswalker another time. But she's definitely no War-Like individual; preferring to actually think than just react alone as an action.

I've got some to recommend you on overall, but my advice would be for you to focus more on your objective, there somethings that are better on a voltron strategy, others are better on a more controlly deck, so if I were you I would think how I want to win with this deck and then would put more cards that synergyse with this goal and take out the ones that doesn't that much.
Since most of your enchantments are Aura, Umbra Mystic fits well here. Verduran Enchantress because they're never too much. Aura Shards is an excellent piece of removal and Grasp of Fate is also pretty solid. I really like Carpet of Flowers as a most diferent ramp in enchantments, it does varies on your meta, but I think almost always pay off since it cost you just one green. Greater Auramancy for protection. Leyline of Anticipation is pure value. Starfield of Nyx is an auto-include on enchantress decks, just a more affordably Opalescence

Modern Horizons added few cards worth looking at and testing. Currently looking to get a foil Hall of Heliod's Generosity , which is going to be an auto-include. Also excited for On Thin Ice . Always wanted to run Chained to the Rocks in the deck since its mana cost is so aggressive, but the extremely low Mountain count made it so unreliable it was not worth it. Hopefully the ability to run snow lands makes On Thin Ice much more playable. I wish Marit Lage's Slumber was easier to shove in the deck as a spicy wincon, but there are not enough non-basic snow permanents to bother.
That being said. It's time for my rebuttal.
First of all, I don't see how the way I've constructed my deck couldn't be described as "min-max". I've minimized the number of non-permanent spells and maximized the number of enchantments.
My mana-base has proven itself not to be a problem from the times I played. I don't remember a time where I was starved for any one color of mana before. Admittedly many of the lands enter tapped, but my meta isn't cut-throat where that's a problem. That being said, the manlands might get cut soon. They were a product of the meta at the time and weren't all that relevant.
Sandwurm Convergence was an include due to the abundance of dragon and Kaalia decks in my meta. The 5/5 is hard to attack into as well. You'd be surprised the amount of times being unable to be attacked by fliers has mattered. Mind's Dilation can be hit or miss. Ripping a land does suck. If Mind's Dilation hits removal, I can probably cast it on something, otherwise the board's probably looking pretty empty. Hitting a counterspell off of Mind's Dilation can be used to counter the spell that triggered it. As far as the hondens are concerned, the only one that's bad outright by itself is the white one . Players run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Bitterblossom for incremental advantage all the time.
As far as the counter-enchantments, it's just a part of the stipulation I've created for the deck. The alternative I could do for myself is just cut the counterspell themed enchantments altogether and focus more on resolved threats and other effects that interact with the opponent (i.e. Rule of Law and Spirit of the Labyrinth ). Admittedly, I've thought about cutting Sunken Field for Counterbalance .
"Generally, when Hive Mind is out, players tend to refrain from casting instants and sorceries because giving opponents an advantage is bad, and removal can be used against the caster. Occasionally players are willing to ignore those downsides and you will get free card advantage and removal. At it's worst, your opponents all naturalize you." That being said, the "all the removal will be used against you" becomes a non-issue if Sterling Grove and/or Privileged Position are out.
The wincon for the deck is overwhelmingly out-valuing the opponents with card advantage, then dumping mana into Helix Pinnacle . I have added Sigil of the Empty Throne and Opalescence as additional wincons, although Opalescence will likely get cut for something else. I've never liked that it and Starfield of Nyx turn the hard-to-remove enchantments into easy-to-remove creatures.

Im not a fan of Rest in Peace . Estrids ultimate lets u damp all the enchantments that were destroyed by your oponnents. Maybe you can use some combos like Starfield of Nyx + Induced Amnesia + Parallax Wave or Solemnity and Decree of Silence

Wins condition require the Chain Veil, so thats a no-no. I can protect it with estrid or I can include Curator's Ward . I win by either locking the game or milling Starfield of Nyx Induced Amnesia Parallax Wave .
Maybe going down 1/2 lands will give me the slot i need.
Getting enchantments out from the grave is no a priority...since i have estrid's ultimate.
Thanks for the feedback :)

Enchanted Evening will make permanents enchantments in addition to their other types. Starfield of Nyx will make all non-aura enchantments creatures with their power and toughness equal to their casting cost. If the card's original casting cost was zero, its power and toughness will be zero.
The permanents are not destroyed. They just move from the battlefield to the graveyard for having a toughness of zero. This is important since effects that trigger on destroy will not trigger.
On a side note, the transform lands (like Primal Wellspring ) from Ixalan will not be put to the graveyard as their cmc is the cmc of its front face.
