If you control a creature, damage that would reduce your life total to less than 1 reduces it to 1 instead.

This may be a surprise to others, but Ajani's Last Stand is by far the most interesting card for me. I see it being very useful in my R/W pure enchantment modern deck. I need ways to make solid creatures with only enchantments. I also desperately need something to fill the 4-drop slot.
Cast Out, Flameshadow Conjuring, Furnace of Rath, Glory of Warfare, Martial Law, and Retreat to Emeria have been disappointing in my tests. Ivory Mask has been a powerful sideboard option while Pandemonium only replaces Warstorm Surge in very specific matchups. Worship was probably my best option, but it's outside my budget for this deck.
Now, I should have a decent followup to Vessel of Ephemera, Rise of the Hobgoblins, or Myth Realized. The threat of a 4/4 flyer should at least make decisions more uncomfortable for my opponent until I can get safe behind Sphere of Safety. With the engine fully built, Last Stand can be brought back with Starfield of Nyx, trigger Warstorm Surge to kill expendable tokens, sacrifice itself for another avatar and 4 more Warstorm damage, and be waiting in the grave to do it again next turn.

ReaperDrek Agreed on the armor but Gisela costs so much. the CMC of this deck is already to high.
TheKing8426 Thanks for letting me know about Necropotance. I was probably thinking of using it before playing the lich but it doesnt combo, you are correct.
TheRedGoatYou are correct about the Hekma, Urza's armor is back in. As for life restore, I usually switch totals with my opponents. But another restore card wouldnt hurt. That way if I have to Ad Nauseam, Worship or Stunning Reversal then it would be easier to bounce back from. Do you think Oketra's Last Mercy would be better than Tainted Sigil?

SynergyBuild: Worship is definitely a meta choice for the mainboard. There are a lot of match ups at my LGS that get better with Worship in the main. I'd only play another Excavator or Azusa if there was tons of Tron where I play, but there isn't. They do serve a purpose in the deck, but aren't impactful enough to warrant more slots without a heavily Tron skewed meta.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions, but im not trying to make this deck competitive or anything. Im generally trying to stay away from expensive cards like Walking Ballista (the original deck was a prototype, so I just let loose with the budget). Walking Ballista is a really good card though, better than Rakdos Guildmage, however the guildmage is more on-theme so I prefer it ;)
That being said, while the payoffs are creatures, it's literally impossible for an opponent to disrupt me if they don't kill Izzet Guildmage or Training Grounds right off the bat, before I combo off. Since you draw your entire deck, you'll always hit the one Gigadrowse, and you can use it to tap all their permanents. You can also bounce all of their permanents with the Eye of Nowhere, and again tap all their permanents while making infinite mana with Psychic Puppetry + Psychic Puppetry. If I'm worried about something in their hand that they can cast for 0 mana, I usually play Dimir Guildmage and make them discard everything in their hand (if I combo off with Manamorphose I always make some black mana) After doing one of those things you'd play a Guildmage and then kill them. The hard part is getting the first Izzet Guildmage to survive a turn.
Lab Maniac is a good idea though, I forgot about him. I actually included Eye of Nowhere in order to get around Worship and Leyline of Sanctity, now I realize that Lab Maniac would solve that problem... the only thing is that he's useless if I draw him early, which is something I tried to avoid when choosing my combo pieces (this is the reason I took out Lava Spike). I think I'll add him to the sideboard.
I'll think of your other suggestions when I try making a more creature-heavy version of this deck, earlier I was fiddling around with a Jeskai Training Grounds deck with Mistmeadow Witch and Azorius Guildmage and stuff that went more for control. Ghost-Lit Warder could be neat in that list, Banefire I think would be a good win-con.
Again, I really don't expect this deck to do well at all against any deck that packs removal or counterspells lol. It's way too easy to kill Izzet Guildmage or counter the first spell, however I really love this deck just cuz it's super fun when it works. (Sry for the long reply lol, and thanks for checking out my deck :D)

Was building my own Ghalta deck and came upon your's while trying to get an idea of what direction to go in. I like the +1/1 counter synergy and I think you could build off it more if you wanted. For instance: Triskelion, although more expensive, is functionally another Walking Ballista, this increases the chance of drawing one or the other, as well as reduces the risk of having it removed/exiled. Asceticism is also a good protector.
However this can go beyond the infinite +1/1s and (using them as a base) Crystalline Crawler/Workhorse can give infinite mana, Mindless Automaton can give infinite card draw, Spike Feeder can give infinite life, & Hooded Hydra/Hydra Broodmaster can give you infinite creatures that in turn will also have infinite P/T.
I realize that if you have even 1 creature that has trample (like Ghalta) then all this doesn't really matter except in extreme situations (Worship, Phyrexian Unlife combos, Platinum Angel, etc.) I still think it's a useful thing to consider.

Have you considered Worship in the sideboard? It can act like an Ensnaring Bridge that can be attacked through, and with less enchantment removal than artifact removal, it would be hit less than an actual bridge.
I would also recommend Karn, Scion of Urza instead of the Life's Legacy. It seems a little odd, but it's starting to see play in the affinity community. It's strong in the grindy matchups like Jund. It will drop more artifacts onto the field, draw you more cards, or both.

This ended up being really, really long...so if it's TL;DR or you feel too critical, feel free to delete it (I wouldn't even complain at this point). Hard to really see this as an "Enchantress" deck while only being able to use Mesa Enchantress and NOT including a Serra's Sanctum to boot. Much more simply an Enchantment heavy Angel deck, which I definitely approve of since I love both Enchantments and Angels, but the title is misleading.
Enchantress is a deck centered around the Enchantress triggers of Argothian Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, Eidolon of Blossoms; and if you're adding a color, you add White so you can use Mesa Enchantress and Femeref Enchantress. Without this core, it's not Enchantress.
As for the rest of the deck, it looks like it should be able to hold its own, but would probably improve with some cheaper Angels or more ramp. I used to run Voltron Akroma, Angel of Wrath and had to use tons of mana rocks just to make it playable. Akroma also cost 5WWW to get the FIRST time soooo....yeah...
Angels:Serra Avenger, Angelic Page, Emancipation Angel, Seraph of the Sword, Sustainer of the Realm, Angel of Condemnation, Seraph of Dawn, Blinding Angel, Herald of the Host, Angel of Sanctions, Angelic Arbiter, Angel of Serenity, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Resolute Archangel, Archangel of Thune, Baneslayer Angel, Serra Ascendant, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Iona, Shield of Emeria.
Enchantments:Serra's Blessing, Brave the Sands, True Conviction, Righteous Cause, Aura of Silence, Blind Obedience, Endless Horizons, Spirit Loop, Karmic Justice, Nevermore, Seal of Cleansing, Sphere of Safety, Spiritual Focus, Starfield of Nyx, Worship, Moat, Test of Endurance
Rocks/Ramp:Land Tax is pricey, but the best mono white land grabber in the game.Gilded Lotus, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Manalith, Fellwar Stone, Spectral Searchlight, Darksteel Ingot, Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Pristine Talisman, Caged Sun, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Explorer's Scope, Thunder Totem, Marble Diamond.
Other:Door of Destinies, Herald's Horn, Howling Mine, Demystify, Disenchant, Fragmentize, Forsake the Worldly, Fumigate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Approach of the Second Sun, Faith Healer, Grand Abolisher, Open the Vaults, Replenish, Second Sunrise, Oketra's Monument
A number of these are pretty pricey (and definitely out of my price range) but as someone who plays White in every format he plays, a Tribal player and an Enchantress player, I can go on and on and on about these kinds of decks...This deck happens to have a White-centric tribe and is Enchantment based. XD My apologies.
