Enchantment Recursion

Commander (EDH) forum

Posted on March 14, 2019, 11:39 a.m. by AkrosTheClear

One of my favorite things to do in EDH is slam big powerful enchantments onto the battlefield, some of my favorites being Grave Pact , Smothering Tithe , Eye of the Storm , and Phyrexian Arena . The problem is that enchantment removal is cheap and plentiful while enchantment recursion is, well... not. Am I wrong when I say that there is a woeful lack of enchantment recursion in MTG in general? Other than general recursion like Eternal Witness and Regrowth there are only 3 cards I know of that relate specifically to enchantments: Tragic Poet , Replenish , and Open the Vaults (which affects everyone, so screw that).

So my question is are there any enchantment recursion cards I missed? Or does Wizards just need to make a new archetype of card?

Thank you for any and all input.

Skull of Orm is one I'm planning to pick up for a Rakdos punisher-style enchantment deck. Expensive to activate but in / I'm not exactly flush with options!

Hanna, Ship's Navigator works well.

Open the vaults is good in a enchantment heavy deck unless opponent is also enchantment heavy. Then you could always exile their yard first.

There are others also. Used to have a hanna edh deck that used some.

Estrid, the Masked can return enchantments.

I think estrid and tragic poet, are both signs that they're working on it.

Faith's Reward is a good option.

Argivian Find , Auramancer , Restoration Specialist . Auramancer and Specialist don't have to tap to recur and are good with creature reanimation/recursion such as Reveillark , Sun Titan , Phyrexian Reclamation , etc. Sun Titan can reanimate 3 CMC or less enchantments.

Treasury Thrull can return enchantments (as well as creatures and artifacts) to the hand by attacking. One per attack though, of course.

Starfield of Nyx is a great enchantment that gives other enchantments recursion! You get one every upkeep.
