While not a wall Archangel of Tithes is more tax and Mana Tithe is good. While more control than tax good old Grand Arbiter Augustin IV can help slow down aggro deck even more. And AEther Barrier can help you get rid some nasty things but it hits you as well so be careful with this one and In the Eye of Chaos , but both may help you in a pinch

I was thinking the best would be either Aegis of Honor or AEther Barrier , as well as Baird, Steward of Argive for maximum nope.

zendrix1 on Help me add some lands please!!!!

I tend to run 36 lands plus 10 ramp sources (granted I adhore mana screw so you might not need all that). So I'd add 5 more lands and 6 more mana rocks personally.

Some cards I'd consider cutting to make room would be Chancellor of the Annex , Amulet of Safekeeping , Trinisphere , Council's Judgment , Suppression Field , and AEther Barrier (would need to cut more though)

General feedback is that it feels like you don't have too many ways to benefit from all the stax effects. Cards like As Foretold (which you have) or just a lot of mana rocks plus something like Unwinding Clock or Brago, King Eternal to let you operate under the oppressive effects more effectively than your opponents.

Lastly I'm not too sure how you win really other than just getting in the red zone with little hatebears. So maybe adding in some combo finishers like Helm of Obedience to combo with Rest in Peace

Thank you for the suggestions! I will definitely consider AEther Barrier and Ashes of the Abhorrent those are really good flex card spots that I missed out on. The other one I was actually consider running is Energy Flux .

Counterbalance is in and out of the deck before, and is actually a flex spot. I value aura's a tad bit more in this build. If I was going a pure enchantress build I would actually consider adding this card along with Soothsaying .

Now there are actually a couple reasons why I chose not to run Mana Crypt and Sol Ring . Originally it was in the list, well at least Sol Ring was, I only have four Mana Crypts and they are in my cEDH decks. The times I did have it, it didn't benefit me when I was 'storming' off on my turns, it was a dead card almost all the time. I can't trigger off any of my enchantresses with it so it was cut. Alongside I run Stony Silence as well, I tutor for it pretty frequently due to my meta running plenty of artifacts. The list is tuned to pretty one shot people and outvalue people via attrition.

I hope that gives you my perspective!

AEther Barrier - While it doesn't help you further your voltron strategy, it does slow down your opponents, 1 mana every creature can be very detrimental to plenty decks, unless you find yourself facing other voltron decks.

Ana Sanctuary - A simple 3 mana enchantment that will buff Tuvasa, though the fact it triggers on upkeep might be a downside if you cast it the turn you plan to go off.

Ashes of the Abhorrent - A good graveyard-hate card.

Bonds of Mortality - If you find yourself having to deal with a lot of hexproof or indestructible creatures.

Chromatic Armor - Might be worthwhile to play

I don't fully understand why you run no Artifacts...there's some that are definitely worth playing like the staple, Sol Ring or Mana Crypt (If you've explained it in the primer, I must have missed it, in which case, my bad)

Counterbalance - If you're fighting stax, tell em to go shove it with this beauty

Hope this is of some use to you, +1

Why even call it Cedh when it's just an edh deck with sub-optimal card choices.

What is the reason for running Forbidden Orchard in a two-color deck (you're not going to tell me it's necessary for color fixing when you're on two colors...)

Daze -> Dispel is way better in this case as you're looking for the best slot card to use in CEDH and not sub-optimal cards...

Gush -> Delve draw cards or the pull from something is way better than this... even though it's funny you can and others can't it is not a card to run outside of doomsday piles... or monoblue 1v1 decks...

Illumination ? why hamstring yourself with super specific counters?

Pact of Negation Not a fan of the card outside of fast combo decks...

Rushing River what in the?

AEther Barrier Doesn't really do anything.

Blind Obedience What are those! doesn't do anything for you!

Frozen AEther What are those! doesn't do anything for you!

Kismet What are those! doesn't do anything for you!

Mana Maze so you also block yourself?

Orb of Dreams cool! and?

Static Orb no benefit, no way to make it asymmetrical, no reason to run it!

Ward of Bones jank stuff!

Winter Orb no benefit, no way to make it asymmetrical, no reason to run it!

Thalia, Heretic Cathar Again the absolute mad lad with the anti-aggro cards for CEDH deck...

There must be far better options that all of these cards like Ravages of War , Delay ETC ETC ETC...
