All That Glitters Discussion

Hey, well done so far on budget upgrade of the precon, but there's some filler cards here that look out of place.
If you want to go the direction of more enchantments/auras then Tuvasa the Sunlit as Bant Commander is someone to consider instead of Galea since she interacts much better with enchantments. Currently you have a mix of both enchantments and equips and that direction does go well with Galea as Commander. Consider adding more cards that have interaction with both auras and equips?
- Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist --> Valiant Endeavor
- Open the Armory --> Contingency Plan
- Armored Skyhunter --> Assault Suit
- All That Glitters --> Prodigious Growth
- Nettlecyst --> Collective Blessing
Galea doesn't have built-in protection which is what you want with a voltron Commander and a good upgrade you've done is Darksteel Plate. Swiftfoot Boots and Winged Boots are nice from the precon, but consider others than also give evasion?
When Galea has huge power then being able to attack unblocked can outright end an opponent with lethal Commander damage. Flying and trample evasion is not as a sure way as unblockable.
- Aqueous Form --> Index
- Steel of the Godhead --> Shielding Plax
- Prowler's Helm --> Blessed Spirits
- Rogue's Passage --> Tranquil Thicket
Good luck with your deck.

Great deck! I rarely see kithkin decks, and this is an awesome one!
Here are some of my thoughts on how you may improve this deck:
I feel like you could do better than Holy Strength, as far as enchantments go. Consider Spirit Mantle, which makes for a tough threat once your creature is protected from opponents' creatures, making it unblockable essentially. Furthermore, consider All That Glitters, which pairs very nicely with your Ethereal Armor to make come truly powerful creatures early. Hyena Umbra would be a great value add, giving three great effects for only one mana. Finally, Grasp of the Hieromancer would almost replicate the effect you're achieving with Glaring Aegis, and would be a great addition.
Overall you have a really cohesive deck with a clear vision in mind, and I think it looks really great. Good work!

Shielded by Faith and other Aura enchantments must be attached to a permanent (usually a creature--the text box will have the details, or the type line in older cards) at all times. It can't "fall off" and stay on the battlefield. Equipment artifacts can be on the field without being attached, though. Darksteel Plate is an Equipment that gives creatures indestructible, but it's considerably more expensive.

Also since transcendent envoy is a enchantment would a enchantment destruct card like one that says destroy target enchantment, would that kill my Griff?

Dance of Many is a cool card, which can duplicate the best thing out usually, which is nice. The other duplication enchantments, Copy Enchantment and Mirrormade are both useful with All That Glitters , IIRC it's about the fastest Voltron you can generate with Zur. Estrid's Invocation works nicely with Detention Sphere , allowing you to wipe a token type per turn at no cost, handy in some matchups.
Web of Inertia and Rest in Peace is a nice way to be safe from enemy attackers, and to halt anyone else trying to use their graveyard. It has no ongoing cost like Solitary Confinement , and works vs attack triggers (like an enemy Zur or Eldrazi).

Hey Argy, appreciate the fast response. I'll try to respond in order of comments, it is quite a lot starting from myself. Consistency does come with single colors. I probably run the most colors out of any Ensoul deck, you really wouldn't want to add blank after Jeskai the payoff of adding in Tezzeret's Touch isn't worth it but my Modern version being Grixis worked out fairly well for the meta. That response pretty much Negate s my addition of white.
Higher mana value cards do help with adding more value as they tend to be more useful than lower drops so the issue of running out of cards and getting the final damage through is pretty much solved. I have a different way of solving this issue in my deck but I won't comment that here as I see you commented on my deck as well.
Playing against oneself is hard as you may imagine you pretty much have to go into each deck "blind" from the oppoent's point of view but from a pilots view need to be able to run the deck efficiently. This wasn't hard for me as both decks are in the same build category although are at the opposite ends of the spectrum. For my deck I add in Shadowspear to be able to gain the life lost from an aggressive build like yourself. From your stand point my deck had no spot removal so I could remove Padeem, Consul of Innovation as the additional card on turn 5 may be too late. I also added in Reality Shift as this is a great card against an voltron deck like these. In Game 1 my deck just preformed faster although I ended up at 5 life so it was very close. Game 2 I countered the Reality Shift and your deck flooded out but not before getting a Darksteel Citadel Ensouled with a Shadowspear attached. We both sat there gaining life until I was able to gain more.
I didn't bother looking at the "Under Consideration" tab as there wasn't much explanation between any of the cards so it would almost be hopeless from the outside looking in figuring out why some cards are here. If The Blackstaff of Waterdeep was worth it in any competitive deck it would be this one but the comments against it are very valid. Most are why I don't even have it considered mainly because it only plays one side being an enabler and not really a target as you mentioned it's a piss poor target having no protection or evasion and being blue itself. Funny thing I won a match being I cast an All That Glitters instead of an Ensoul because the opponent was holding up 1 blue for Mystical Dispute .
Looks like you pretty much have it figured out, thought I'd just pop in and say hello to a fellow Ensoul player. I like the change in pace and color.

Seems like you're really into the Ensoul builds. I ran mine from Standard to Modern to Frontier for a week and now Pioneer. I think I landed on a pretty great deck here Jeskai Ensoul (PNR). Just played a mirror match against you, Game 1 was fun but quick in my favor and game 2 was fun where we kept gaining life until my creature got bigger and gained double strike from Boros Charm . Stubborn Denial does wonders against your main board removal.
I like the offset from Izzet to mono blue but you might consider Azorious for All That Glitters . You have a good mass of artifacts and Glitters can make any creature much larger than otherwise possible. Also Stubborn Denial is an amazing card in something like this. You may also like The Blackstaff of Waterdeep . It does the same as Animating Faerie for the same cost (cast and activate) but it recurring in case the target were to die and not as restrictive only targetting nontoken as opposed to noncreature like Faerie but doesn't come down with a body and is legendary.
I like Padeem, Consul of Innovation that's a cool card. I hate running 4 drops though in a deck this quick in the main which is why I run only 3. I may switch out Thopter Spy Network for Padeem though because he doesn't protect the artifact that may be on the field when he hits due to instant speed removal but he protects all the others unless he gets hit as well. Although Spy Network is harder to hit and makes a threat every turn Spy Network may be better that hurts sometimes. I don't run Whirler Rogue because I don't like the 4 drops but I can see where it shines by tapping down equipment that normally don't tap to make your guys unblockable.
The Shadowspear in the main is a sweet addition and when facing any sort of aggressive build I always side mine in. Compared to my build, however, yours seems a little slower with the enabler cards ( Ensoul Artifact , Animating Faerie , Skilled Animator being slightly more mana value than mine and the support cards you run being of 4 drop while mine run at 3 or less for the main. Adding in All That Glitters may make all the difference there and you'll have access to Settle the Wreckage in the side instead of Aetherspouts . That extra mana on the board wipe may make all the difference.
Sweet deck though I would consider taking a look at mine whenever you get the chance I have the entire deck laid out in the description and have been running this stuff for basically as long as it existed.

Wyleth seems like a really strong choice for voltron. I think low-cost auras would be potent here. Dust Corona , Ethereal Armor , All That Glitters , Thunderous Might , Squee's Embrace , Blessing of the Nephilim , Furor of the Bitten , Taste for Mayhem , Tahngarth's Rage , Battle Mastery , Cartouche of Solidarity , Crackling Club , Flamespeaker's Will , Gryff's Boon , Hyena Umbra
