Ancestral Mask

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature gets +2/+2 for each other enchantment in play.

Niko9 on How come we don't have …

I think that they are really hesitant to print things into enchant because almost every format has some enchantresses and the only reason they aren't totally broken is because enchantments in general are weak.

Enchantment lands+ Abundant Growth+ enchantresses+ Sanctum Weaver+ Rune of Speed+ Ancestral Mask+ Inkmoth Nexus would be an extremely dependable infect package, and I'm sure there are better effects than that, it's just the one I can think of right now : )

I mean, if there was a 2 mana creature that said "when an artifact enters the battlefield draw a card" everyone would be drawing their whole deck and we'd basically be playing YGO. If enchantments get a decent push, they would be too good, ironically.

Have you thought about adding Ancestral Mask and All That Glitters, possibly Ethereal Armor, to allow voltron off of one card and what your deck is already trying to do? Zur the Enchanter can be found via Sisay and can find these pieces. Zur can also find Freed from the Real or Pemmin's Aura to make infinite mana off of Sanctum Weaver, which I feel is a card you might look at even if you don't bother with Zur. Zur in general is good with Shrines or Backgrounds, I feel like with both he's a great fit.

Really love this deck!

If the BW deck uses lots of enchantments, Ancestral Mask is pretty strong. It's also a card that's a great payoff for using lots of enchantments yourself. For the record, I suspect Enchantments as a theme is much more supported than Equipment is, there are incredibly borked cards like Serra's Sanctum (Tolarian Academy is banned), Academy Rector, and Replenish (the best of it's kind, but there are assorted other cheap versions), while stuff like Hall of Heliod's Generosity and many various Enchantresses (there aren't as many for Equipment I think) including Verduran Enchantress and Kor Spiritdancer are also very good. I have a Boros deck that uses creatures that draw cards off of enchantments being cast and stuff like Flickering Ward that I can recast over and over, I think Green has a bunch of other solid Enchantress cards, stuff like Setessan Champion. I think you can definitely run both and do fine, but if you wanted to go all in on one, Enchantments is really well supported in Bant.

If your Commander will usually have Double Strike, you probably could run Inquisitor's Flail, it's a really strong equipment with First Strike damage.

Not sure if you've got enough creatures to make it a viable alternative, but something like Pathbreaker Ibex could be an amusing backup Commander if you lose Rafiq somehow, maybe an Oubliette. The neat thing about Pathbreaker is that it can also double it's power (and get trample) after you buff it up, so it can be a very fast clock as well, and it has the not insubstantial upside that if you have a few creatures out with Rafiq you can just clobber people with a big Ibex swing.

yeah i think i'm missing some card draw here too. tried to incorporate some with Abundant Growth and Brainstorm but i'd much prefer some more consistent draw. i had Snake Umbra in a previous version (which went heavy on totem armor), which at least gives a little more value than Ophidian Eye for the cost, but it felt like this deck wanted a lower mana curve and by the time i get a few turns past a three cost, Ancestral Mask should be a finisher. that said, what do you think about the benefit of the extra 1/1 on Snake Umbra vs the extra creature for forced sacrifice fodder on Tandem Lookout? What about a transmute effect like Dizzy Spell to find a one or two mana? Kinda flexible single card seek for later in the game.

That's a lot lol sorry

I am also working on an Estrid deck, and found Enchanted Evening to be completely useless. It doesn't trigger Enchantresses and has no effect on cards that are not in play, so doesn't interact with Estrid either.

Is Opalescence your only Wincon? It seem like this list may create games that last very long because of stax, but without you being able to actually win. Maybe at least add an Ancestral Mask, and maybe one or two potential attackers, like Sigarda, Host of Herons, Kor Spiritdancer or Setessan Champion?

Hope this is helpful!

Cool deck.
Maybe Ancestral Mask?

Niko9 on Should I Keep Luminarch Ascension …

5 months ago

I do think that Luminarch Ascension is a little slow without ways of proliferating or something like that. As far as what to add though, you can't really go wrong with sentinel or smothering tithe as generically good cards, but you also don't have a ton of synergy with either. Smothering Tithe is good ramp, but it's at it's best in an artifacts matter deck. And Esper Sentinel is amazing for card advantage, but I feel like your deck is more about attacking than necessarily value.

If it was me I'd probably look at this deck as a massive pump deck. Things like Ancestral Mask or Blackblade Reforged or even Eldrazi Conscription that can make your commander into a huge threat.

But it's all what you like to do. You have a very well balanced deck that can respond to a lot of things, and it looks awesome. I definitely look at Jenara, Asura of War and think that she could make a terrifying auras/enchantress commander, but that's just me : )

And maybe an odd choice, but I feel like Slippery Bogbonder is a very underrated card. It's like a counter plus a creature plus a really weird upside effect, and the hexproof counter is really hard for an opponent to get rid of.

So, I don't know, too much info maybe : ) Sorry. I do think that luminarch is a good call to replace, but you have tons of options. At least it's not the worst problem. Hope it ends up great!

There are a few budget-friendly cards that I can recommend
Commune with Spirits and Kruphix's Insight -> for extra card draw
Control Magic, The Trickster-God's Heist and Corrupted Conscience-> steal the biggest threat on the battlefield
Evolutionary Leap -> kill the frog, draw an enchantress
Druid Class -> play extra lands to make use of all the cards this deck draws
Shigeki, Jukai Visionary -> repeatable ramp on an enchantment creature
Mirrormade -> super versatile card
Ancestral Mask -> can one-shot someone with unblockable commander
