Description

Enchantments are in, baby, and I have three words for you: White, Black, Green!

That's right! I'll be your stlye-guru, Karador, Ghost Chieftan, because I'm not just a spirit, I'm drop dead gorgeous!

All this season's must-haves for all the card draw the savvy enchanter needs to stay ahead of the trend are included in this catalog of essentials. Let's take a look!

No self respecting enchanter would be caught dead without a Sphere of Safety, or rather, without one you might just get caught dead! Let the haters maul each other over their cheap tat, all the while drawing cards with your parade of fierce enchantresses. Argothian Enchantress, Eidolon of Blossoms, Enchantress's Presence, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress.

"...your parade of fierce enchantresses."

The perfect accessories for your enchantresses? Earthcraft or Mirari's Wake! This allow you to go on a veritable shopping spree, drawing cards, cards cards, and with the mana to cast them all! Whoever said less is more?

Even wall flowers like Grim Guardian and Fate Unraveler will look good in this deck, helping whittle opponents' life down in the early game, making it easier for you to upstage everyone in the late game with sensational amounts of damage.

Speaking of damage, let's talk outdoor wear. I'm talking, hats, masks and body Armour. Ancestral Mask, Ethereal Armor and Helm of the Gods can turn your off-the-shelf creature into a major provocateur on the scene.

Who wore it best? Me, Karador, Ghost Chieftan of course. Commander damage is the in way to win, darling. Although if I'm having a wadrobe malfunction (it happens), you can still make it work with Sigil of the Empty Throne; Your angels will simply fly off the runway! Celestial Ancient can also make all your other creatures look good, just by hanging around them. Talk about iconic.

This collection isn't just stylish, it's durable too! Get the longest wear out of your enchantments by getting a combination of any 2 of Sterling Grove. Greater Auramancy or Privileged Position. Truly timeless pieces.

Digging that retro vibe? Recur enchantment creatures from last season with Karador, Ghost Chieftain for extra constellation and enchantment triggers. If you get your star model, Eternal Witness into the graveyard (perhaps with some costume design by Nyx Weaver) then you can start bringing her back with Karador whenever you please and with her more chic enchantments when you need them most.

Replenish and Open the Vaults are when you finally turn your collection lose on the public. Late game, when the graveyard is full, bring all your enchantments back onto the catwalk at once in one final extravaganza. This will let all your constellation triggers happen simultaneously and really get your opponent's questioning their own poor choices.

Now don't be alarmed, but I have hired a bouncer for tonight's show. Gideon's Intervention: Because I did not put other commander's names on the guest list.

And with that, it's time for your runway debut! With all the items in this collection, attention won't be the only thing your drawing, because you'll be drawing cards, cards, cards.

Knock 'em dead!

I would like to put aura shards in. What would you reccomend I take out?

I took out Kruphix's Insight, as I was finding it a little hit and miss.

I like the flavor of the deck a lot so +1 from me!

As for suggestions, the mana base could use a bit of improvement. I personally stay away from lands that come into play tapped because they slow you down quite a bit. Maybe add some fetch lands?

Armadillo Cloak is one card that I think would fit the decks flavor perfectly. Other cards like Eladamri's Call and Abrupt Decay might also be worth trying.

Megalomania Thanks :)

Fetchlands will probably be my next acquisition once I get a little richer.

I try to avoid auras in this deck where possible as it becomes hard to get multiple auras on one crature thanks to Sterling Grove which I always aim to have in play as soon as I can.

Im also trying to keep non-enchantments (ie. instants/sorcieries) to a minimum as to maximise my draws from the enchantresses.

Idyllic Tutor would be perfectly at home in this deck. +1 for you!

Adamaro thanks! Just sprung the dough for my shocklands, so idyllic tutor might be a paycheck or two away at the moment! :(

I feel your wallet's pains believe me haha. Cardboard crack adds up quickly! Great deck thus far.
