Umbra Mystic Discussion

Nice deck, your construction reminds me of my first version which was more Enchantress-draw based. Keep in mind that in those days not all cards in your deck where available. You can find that deck over here: [Rafiq 1.0] Enchantress Draw
Enchantments and Auras
There are a few enchantments i'd like to mention which I tried in my decks aswell and did not make it to the final cut (or at least the deck how I play it nowadays).
Armadillo Cloak I used to run this and also Unflinching Courage but I dropped them because in my playgroup people tend to scoop when you strike them lethal so you don't get the advantage of the lifelink.
I think you should replace these cards with cards who give better 'unblockable' bonus for instance Infiltrator's Magemark or Spirit Mantle who have a low CMC. Or maybe Drake Umbra which cost more but also gives better bonus.
Further your creature base. I also have tried cards like Herald of the Pantheon but I rather use a general ramp card than an card that only affects your enchantments. Same for Kor Spiritdancer who only triggers on auras. I would consider Knight Exemplar and Umbra Mystic who both help protecting your Commander.
Also I am not a fan of the Legendary-Enchantment Creatures. Bestow cost are mainly too high to cast and I think there are better options available. But if you want to stick to that theme that's okay and then you might consider Thassa, God of the Sea.
I see no planeswalkers in your deck and Bant has a few which really juice this deck up. One I am allready playing myself and the other one is on my wants-list. I suggest to try Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Estrid, the Masked they can be smashing. And if you are adding planeswalkers Shalai, Voice of Plenty might be a nice add.
You really need to add this one: Hunter's Insight this is a crazy card drawer in your deck. And I like cards like: Vines of Vastwood, Invigorate and Might of the Nephilim for the surprise (aka lethal) hit. They are cheap to cast and speed up the game.
Well this is all for now. I might review your deck later again. Maybe you can review mine in the latest version: [Rafiq 2.0] To Serve & Protect [cEDH]

I think you need more land. 36 is really the minimum for consistent play unless you commander is giving you access to land, in my opinion.
If you really want to fort up, Idyllic Tutor and/or Plea for Guidance to tutor up a Privileged Position+Sterling Grove nonbo, also consider Sphere of Safety, Fountain Watch, Archetype of Endurance, Umbra Mystic.
Starfield of Nyx could be a wincon once your fort was secure.
Best of luck!!

Not having your commander be a creature makes the deck very inconsistent. If I wasn't able to play Uril every game I probably wouldn't have won any of them. I would put either Tuvasa or Kestia as the commander.

As you have plenty of mana dork/land mana amplifiers/mana rocks, you should include Mana Reflection, as it does not state that only land mana is doubled but mana from all other permanents as well. Another advantage of Mana Reflection is that it does not just add 1 additional mana but doubles mana produced. This is good with the bounce lands that add 2 mana. It might not be very budget, but to me it is worth the extra expense. Extraplanar Lens could work. It would not work nearly as well as in a mono colour deck, but it is still useful if you are short on sources of a particular colour. Authority of the Consuls and Aura of Silence help with suppressing your opponents. Umbra Mystic for added protection. Finally, overwhelming Splendor to finish an opponent. I absolutely hate that card.

You wanted some advice on this deck; I do check the Commander app now and again. It is a solid deck idea but you are missing a few key pieces. Counterspells for one. Aura of Silence could also be a consideration. Another consideration is a favourite of mine: Umbra Mystic. She gives all Auras totem armour. Fable of the Wolf and Owl, Idyllic Tutor and Enlightened Tutor are worthy considerations. Snake Umbra, Hyena Umbra and Drake Umbra are on par with their sister umbra the Bear Umbra. It is a good deck idea though.

Inanity, I like the updates you made to Elder Mutable Ninja Dragons. Let me know how it plays out next week. I’ll be out of town for the next couple of weeks, so I won’t be able to play my build against my meta for a while. Though, I have been doing a lot of play testing and I do like the additions of both Traumatize and Tunnel Vision that I included to my build. Very terrifying, if they go unanswered. Just need to be careful of graveyard hate.
I did consider Umbra Mystic when I first constructed the deck. Not a bad addition at all. I just decided against it, at the moment. I felt like I had a decent amount of protection already included. Plus, Chromium, the Mutable protects itself. My meta uses more spot removal than mass removal, so I figured I’d be transforming into a 1/1, unblockable human, often.
