5-color enchantress edh

Commander / EDH*

Description

Enchantress EDH. The intent is to get some enchantresses and draw cards off of powerful enchantments. The eventual win-con is a lot of tokens.

This deck use to be very focused on prison effects with a bit of a stax feel and pillow fort feel... but that ended up too boring. So I removed most of the cards that slow down the game and replaced them with token generators instead and that is much more fun. It's natural to build enchantress not this way I find.

I avoid infinite combos.

I avoid things that aren't enchantments, if possible.

I've gone back and forth between generals:

  • Progenitus was the long term option, but at his cost I pretty always wanted to cast enchantments instead

  • Atogatog is good because it gets a laugh and the general really isn't that important

  • I like scion because he has evasion and can shuffle the deck which is sometimes relevant with sylvan library or opponents' deck manipulation shenanigans

I have several of the cards in this deck altered: fetches, maelstrom nexus, genju of the realm, command tower, Serra's Sanctum

I like your suggestions; they are very unique. I particularly like necrotic plague and nettlevine blight.

Harder question is what gets taken out? I'll start to try fitting your suggestions in one at a time.

I think you will like necrotic plague the most in EDH. Its fun to spread the love.

Any update to this with the new constellation cards? At the very least, you've got Eidolon of Blossoms . Doomwake Giant and Thoughtrender Lamia are also pretty great. Mana Bloom is a grindy way to make sure you hit those triggers, but also be good fixing for you.

Since you're going with tokens, you'd also like Heliod, God of the Sun and Pharika, God of Affliction

@KevinLS

You nailed it. Eidolon of Blossoms, Doomwake Giant, and Thoughtrender Lami are in. I'm thinking about Heliod, but need to figure out how to make room.

I don't like Pharika because it's the owner that puts the token in play and I don't have many of my own creatures to sacrifice.

Predatory Advantage could be worth looking at. I suppose it depends a bit on your meta

Why are you running Temur Ascendancy ? It does not look like you have enough bigger creatures, or creatures in general to make it worth your while.

I need one haste enabler in the deck to win when I play out all the cards in my deck.

Teysaforever says... #14

Would something like Hammer of Purphoros be better? The Hammer gives haste and can make enchantment creatures in a pinch. It is also not three colors to cast.

@Teysaforever

Mana fixing is rarely a problem and I don't need Temur Ascendancy out early. I'm actually liking the draw card effect quite a bit with Sigil and casting my commander.

Phenax, God of Deception + Replenish is an awesome self mill strategy for you. Is there a reason why you aren't running more of the constellation creatures? They are just straight value extra bodies to block or attach with with enchantment Enter the Battlefield abilities. Doomwake Giant could very easily be a one sided board wipe, especially with Replenish

Run Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx! They're a wombo combo with Humility :)

I would recommend Reaper King for your commander with Xenograft and/or Conspiracy to abuse his effect.

Flash + Academy Rector + Omniscience = win

I'm wondering why you have the scion as your commander. You have no dragons in here and I believe that commanders should be useful instead of just a body. I honestly think that Cromat would be a better fit do to the versatility. You might also want to add Narset, Enlightened Master for the free cards.

July 11, 2016 11:31 p.m.

I think most of the 5 colour commander options would be better than Scion of the Ur-Dragon. Some of the better ones would be Sliver Hivelord (5/5 indestructible), Progenitus (10/10 pro everything), Sliver Legion (8/8), chromat (versitile), Reaper King (combos well as KagelVlushaaaaa mantioned above), or Child of Alara (a 6/6 trample with a nice board wipe in a pinch, also if you send it to the command zone when it dies you don't get the wrath trigger so don't worry if you're winning).

I'd like to second the Aura Thief suggestion from earlier to combo with Enchanted Evening. You already have the Cleansing Meditation portion of most EE decks, so why not go for broke?

Asceticism instead of Privileged Position? I feel it is slightly better and with the mana base you have you should have no problem with the two green. Nice deck btw! ;)

Why are you not running the Chromanticore as the commander? This is the first time I have seen him... But your deck just made me order him lol good desk tbw. I run Scion as a Bruit Dragon deck with a bunch of jankee tricks in its tool box check it out some time

Why not put Enduring Ideal ? It's quite fun even if it's not always useful
