Ravenrose Thanks for checking it out! Cutting the final cards from my 'myths to include'-pile was painful for sure, but now that I've played the deck a few times I think I managed to balance flavour with potential power fairly decently. I'm purposely staying away from aura's, even ones with totem armor, because they require other cards to work and open you up to losing two cards for the price of one. Instead, I get the draw triggers on Kestia from using enchantment creatures, which have the added bonus of often being steeped in mythology themselves. If I was to include an Umbra though, Bear Umbra is definitely at the top of my list. That thing is insane and I only cut it for lack of space.

Said on Greek Mythology...

You really managed to fit a lot of different myths into one deck! A very flavourful assortment, it looks like a lot of fun to pilot. I do worry slightly about the land count given some of the more impressive mana costs, and would probably swap out something like Gaea's Blessing for another land if it's in a vacuum. I don't have any mill players in my meta, so your mileage with that card may vary. I also highly recommend Song of the Dryads! It's a myth all by itself, with the added bonus of taking care of any troublesome permanent, including commanders.

Poseidon31 Thanks for taking a look! I quite like the Magemarks for an Aura deck, which is definitely something Kestia would be a good commander for. I'm not all that into Auras myself though, because I think they require too much stuff to work well and are a great way to get two-for-one'd. I built Kestia around Enchantment Creatures instead of around enchanted creatures, so every creature I play usually replaces itself immediately and draws cards on subsequent combats. The idea being that no card played is ever really wasted, which is a risk I feel you do take when playing Auras.

I reckon you could very well make a beast of an Aura deck with Kestia, Heavenly Blademaster, Sovereigns of Lost Alara and Bruna, Light of Alabaster though. Get some Arcanum Wings + Eldrazi Conscription nonsense going.
