you might want Dolmen Gate or runetail, kitsune ascendant to prevent combat damage to your creatures. Asceticism will protect your guys as well.

Why did you skip the original Lure combo, Thicket Basilisk +100 style points for that.

colton815: Have you ever considered why any Voltron Commander deck depends on the Commander having Hexproof or similar levels of protection? And why Auras are the single most recurrable card in the game?

Auramancer had to be printed at Common to be even remotely useful. Retether and Replenish, while Rare, affect all Enchantments.

Because you lose them too fast when you depend on them without additional protections. Equipment doesn't have that vulnerability.

The 241 problem has been a known thing since the first time someone cast Terror on a Thicket Basilisk with Lure attached to it. Back in Alpha.

SaintedPlacebo: That's a nice way of putting it, but Flying is a 'hard' Evasion ability, not a 'soft' one like First/Double Strike or Trample, and has had Deathtouch (or rather, it's prototype) since Alpha with Thicket Basilisk.
