Whip Silk Discussion

Hey, more land auras are good ramp for your deck because they trigger Eutropia and other enchantresses. Utopia Sprawl, Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Wolfwillow Haven, these could replace land ramp spells.
Hadana's Climb Flip especially Winged Temple of Orazca which doubles power is good with Eutropia to make her a real threat to kill with Commander damage. Cephalid Constable has a busted combat damage trigger. Pump Constable with Eutropia and give it flying making it easier to do combat damage. As it gets bigger it can bounce more of your opponents permanents.
Incubation Druid (with a counter on it) + Freed from the Real + Shimmering Wings is infinite triggers of Eutropia. Incubation enchanted by Feed can make infinite blue mana and use that infinite mana to infinite cast, ETB and bounce Wings. Whip Silk can also do this except with green mana instead of blue.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Omen of the Hunt
- Rampant Growth
- Kodama's Reach
- Displacement Wave
- Thassa's Intervention
- Kiora Bests the Sea God
- Mantle of the Wolf
Good luck with your deck.

Whip Silk is the only thing that is a hard reccomend

My suggestion would be to run Flickering Ward over Whip Silk. Having more ways of protection and evasion is never bad. Only downside is you have to be careful to not remove auras already attached to your creature with protection from green and or white. Also would consider Gryff's Boon, more evasion and it is re-curable.

Here are a few great includes that I should have mentioned the first time - Scythe of the Wretched to steal creatures you fight, Foe-Razer Regent to get lots of value, Darksteel Plate for protection and nonstop fights, and Frog Tongue for another enchantment cantrip.
As for my own version, I'm leaning toward focusing on the Hydra ability and cutting most of the aura / fight mechanic ability, except for Whip Silk because it's repeatable and just too good not to have. Thanks and good luck!

I love your decklist, I love your playbook, I love this take. It's a hot take. I was about to suggest a bunch of BS about cards that would make it look more every go-infinite Najeela Warrior Ball Deck, but you can just EDHREC that. I will suggest Cryptolith Rite because its budget Druids' Repository and Earthcraft , and dorks is the key to the deck, so why not dork out hard? (Also, I don't know if your win strategy necessarily needs Najeela online, but that is the most obvious).
What I want to do is talk about abusing your untap enchants. I have a lot of experience with Intruder Alarm , but this thing with the Jeskai Ascendancy : magnificent. Didn't this idea get a little play in standard? Anyway.
Intruder Alarm first: Cheap creatures that bounce themselves like Shrieking Drake or Man-o'-War or Dream Stalker . There's Stonecloaker and Whitemane Lion in white, too. Green has Temur Sabertooth which is super nasty for saving other creatures as well as completing your loop. Great with ETB Triggers.
Jeskai Ascendancy is what I'm really excited about. I've never brewed with this card, but it's got huge potential. You have enough colors and sources to make this one really sparkle. There's buyback cards: Capsize , Elvish Fury , Fanning the Flames , Haze of Rage , Mind Games maybe, Sprout Swarm Definitely (works with Intruder Alarm, too), and many lesser ones. Another Tempest-theme comes in the form of a cycle of Aura Crown of Flames , Shimmering Wings , Whip Silk , and Flickering Ward . The last two are playable (you can make a lot of green and usually white with creatures?), but a lot of this means you have to be hitting at least one strange mana color. I would consider looking at some of the "any color" dorks or Gemstone Array Effects. (That's the best one because it's a battery, too.) ... Priest of Titania ...
I would get my draw from creatures. Beast Whisperer is my dude right now. There's elves and wizards that etb trigger with draw (which would be good to bounce and storm off with, too) and would synergize with tribal cards you are running if they're just lame ducks after being played.
If you want your jank to really clank, consider some more tutors, too. I'm thinking cheaper Enlightened Tutor , Mystical Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Gamble ... I guess that's not too cheap, but way cheaper Vampiric Tutor or Grim Tutor . The reveal might be too much information in your play group, though, so I could see leaving them out.
All that, I just love this mashup. do whatever. I can't wait to see how you evolve this.
