Need feedback on upgrading an Estrid, the Masked Enchantress Deck

Commander Deck Help forum

Hi all!

As the title says i'm looking for feedback on workshopping my Estrid, the Masked Enchantress deck, the link is below for anyone interested.

Estrid the Masked Enbantments.

I'm predominantly a Timmy style player and figured this deck would be something out of my comfort zone while still being fun.

The main things I could use some help with is finding ways to reassign my Oblivion Ring effects, originally I was going to use Skybind for that until I realized it was Non-enchantment permanents. Are there any combos I'm not seeing with Skybind or should I just cut it? (the other use is to exile other peoples creatures when making masks to open them up for the combat step).

aside from this question I just need some general feedback and suggestions to make it more competitive

The main rules of our meta:

-No Infinite Combos

-No Mass Land Destruction

Main Opponent Commanders

  • Izzet Partner Politics (fun casual but potent)

  • Yidris Cascade (Hidden Nekusar)

  • Atraxa +1/+1 Beatstick (very tuned)

  • Krenko Goblin Tribal (also very tuned)

  • Sigarda Hexproof Humans (casual but potent)

  • Zacama Dinosaurs (very tuned)

  • Breya Artifacts (very tuned)

  • Edgar Markov Vampire Tribal (very tuned)

  • Shu Yun Voltron (casual but potent)

(Not looking to sideboard, just giving an idea of the power levels)

Love the format, Thanks in advance!

I've noticed a few things going over the deck:

  1. Where's the ramp? The aura-based ramp (eg. Fertile Ground) is amazing with Estrid. You don't need The Chain Veil for that +2 to be amazing.

  2. Starfield of Nyx would make for some recursion. And it can act as a win condition later (If you have money, Opalescence works too).

  3. Song of the Dryads is missing here. It's almost $10 but it's that high up for a reason. A really good card.

  4. You're running Bruna, Light of Alabaster with so few auras to work with. I'd take her out for another card that would perform well. Seeing as you got enchantresses and pillowfort, Luminarch Ascension and Hoofprints of the Stag would work well. Heliod, God of the Sun also works great since the tokens trigger Constellation (it's more powerful if you can spend on a Serra's Sanctum).

I hope these tips help. A lot of my other suggestions would've really busted your wallet.
