Yavimaya Enchantress Discussion
2 months ago
Just curious as to why your enchantress deck has no enchantresses. Is the Eidolon posing as that? There are three actual enchantresses you could use for your deck if you wanted.Yavimaya Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, and Mesa Enchantress...all modern legal. Rancor might be a good inclusion. If you can afford them, Stony Silence and Rest in Peace as well as Leyline of Sanctity is good against targeted effects. Privileged Position is also interesting.

Journey to Nowhere is a pretty good removal control card.
If you are cool with splashing another color, Yavimaya Enchantress was the driving force of my own enchantment deck from a while back. No matter how much control you may have, creatures are kinda needed to be out sooner. Other good enchantment related creatures include Argothian Enchantress (bit pricier), Blessed Spirits (so gosh darn cute yet sad), Celestial Ancient (doesn't really solve speed issue), Herald of the Pantheon, Mesa Enchantress, and Verduran Enchantress. You never realize just how useful plenty of card draw is until you end up solely topdecking.
Also, from personal experience, I would advise cutting down on some lands to about 21 and balancing out the important cards. Sphere of Safety is insanely cool in this deck, as would Ethereal Armor be, but with only a single copy in the deck your odds of getting it at all are slim, so you want to make sure you have a decent chance with at least 2-3 in the deck, because they do stack.

I really like what's going on with this deck!
It's hard to tell how everything will run without play testing, so sorry if any of the suggestions I have aren't relevant.
The ramp is set up nicely.
For the mana side of things: If you do end up changing your creature base a bit, I think swapping out a mana generator and the Ulvenwald Tracker (without capitalizing on clues via other cards, or even artifacts being out, I don't think investigate is worth it) for a Cryptolith Rite would give you some wiggle room to throw in other creatures.
For the draw side of things: I would be careful about too much ramp happening, since most of the enchantresses are mandatory draw. You might play it and find it necessary to cut one or two. Alternatively, adding in some more insurance beyond reliquary tower could help, such as Thought Vessel, Library of Leng, Venser's Journal, or Spellbook. If you find you want even more draw to happen, Alhammarret's Archive might have some nice potential with your setup.
Another search option if you find you need to be more responsive is Plea for Guidance.
I think any enchantress that runs green should have a Herald of the Pantheon.
You also might need a few more things to discourage/respond to board wipes (something like Fracturing Gust, which actually might be worth you using yourself, depending). I've always liked Karmic Justice, though having a Replenish handy is also helpful.
I think adding a few more creatures and cutting some other cards out would make the deck the right amount of aggressive, especially with as low of an average cmc as you're running for EDH (which I respect haha, I struggle getting it that low). If you do, putting in more auras and adding Greater Auramancy could also make your deck more threatening. It depends on how you want to win: it's easy enough to pillow fort with enchantments and hold out - alternatively, fast aggro can also be super powerful in enchantress. Regardless, I think Rancor is a must-have.
Some creatures to consider: Archetype of Courage, Heliod, God of the Sun, God-Favored General, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Ajani's Chosen, Harvestguard Alseids, Humbler of Mortals, Celestial Ancient, Custodi Squire, Tethered Griffin, Yavimaya Enchantress, Gaddock Teeg and Krond the Dawn-Clad. Speaking of Krond, he might be a good alternative to Dramoka, depending on what type of control you want.
Hope at least some of this helped! Happy deck-building!

I'm currently working on shoring up my Commander Decks and posting them on this site, which has been quite the project. I currently have one built of all ten "Wedges" - one from each of the Shards of Alara, and one from each of the Clans of Tarkir. I might build a few more Commander decks, like one themed around Uril, the Miststalker because I love "Enchantress" decks and he is the Legendary Beast of Enchantresses, or a five-colored Sliver Overlord or Child of Alara or Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck (maybe all three, knowing me). After I finish those, I'm going to rebuild some of my favorite decks (most of them Legacy-legal, but some of them Modern-legal) from my twenty years spent playing the game. Fallen Angel, Yavimaya Enchantress, Terravore, Pestilence, Mogg Maniac, and Traumatize are just some of the stars of those decks, so wait and see what I build!
I like the idea of using this to track what I'm up to in regards to the game, so I'll likely be "blogging" like this from time to time.

Okay, I've played around with this some more and am working out some ideas.
So, finally, in some way, I agree. You don't need Utopia Sprawl unless you're playing 3+ casting cost spells. Since you aren't it's probably more a hindrance than an advantage. So I bow to your wisdom here.
As far as types of enchantments, I've recently replaced Abzan Runemark and Leafcrown Dryad with Rancor, Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra and noticed a marked improvement. My hand is now coming down into play where I used to sit on cards. So, again, I also bow to your wisdom here.
But here is where I'm diverging. So far, I prefer Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask to Angelic Gift and Kor Skyfisher. I realize you get some speed and card drawing from Angelic Gift and Kor Skyfisher, but the hammer you can put down mid-game with Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask is immense. And if you can couple an Aura Gnarlid with an umbra, it gets really ugly for your opponent fast.
It was pretty common in my playtesting to be attacking with a 1/1 hexproof, a 10/10 hexproof and an 8/8 unblockable umbra'd Aura Gnarlid on turn five. But that was only all possible with some combination of Aura Gnarlid, Kruphix's Insight and Ancestral Mask. But I admit, this is probably the key difference between a full aggro hexproof deck and a mid-game hexproof deck. And for now, I am willing to settle for the latter.
So that said, I get the idea behind Kor Skyfisher to attack quickly, but I struggle with why you're playing Angelic Gift. You can use it to draw a card. Fine. But flying doesn't really get you anything on it's own and since your're not playing Ancestral Mask, Aura Gnarlid or Yavimaya Enchantress your enchantment count isn't critical. It would seem like for just drawing a card, Frog Tongue is better because it's cheaper.
Overall, I feel like you'd be better off just playing a good enchantment. I feel like Briar Shield, Lunarch Mantle, Favor of the Overbeing, Glaring Aegis or Sun Clasp are better options. So far you've had far better ideas than mine, so what am I missing here?

Okay, I see where this is goingThis tactic is actually mostly covered by a Mono-Green deck i still run sometimes, focussing on providing enough enchantments fueled by Verduran Enchantress to grow some serious Yavimaya Enchantresses combined with an Elvish Herder or some Mythic Proportions - Liked the synergy back then
Nevertheless i still wanna try to run my weird ramp-enchanting-thing on the GW

You got it mostly right. If you really want to be casting big dudes for win-cons, I'd put more ramp enchantments in (e.g. Wild Growth, Overgrowth) to continue to dig for your 1-ofs while still ramping. Otherwise I'd cut the fatties entirely and count on your Ancestral Masks and Ethereal Armors and Yavimaya Enchantresses to naturally grow big enough to take over the game. Since this is casual, the choice is just based on your playstyle.
