Argothian Enchantress Discussion
2 days ago
Mark Rosewater isn't answering many squirrel questions, so we have to use our best judgement. I included Argothian Enchantress in my deck. Looks like a weird flying squirrel.
When I built my squirrel deck I started looking through squirrel art alot and its very loose and each artest is different. Many different shapes and sizes from Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher looking like a Rat imho (with the darkened tail hard to see in low light) to Chatter of the Squirrel looking like a chipmunk, to Squirrel Wrangler looking like beavers imo. So just gotta roll with it and have fun.
You can check my deck if you'd like. No matter how you build squirrels it won't be commmander legal so its backup fun deck for me with my friends.

TacoBoy: yeah I think it's a rat since it's gray and has a pretty fat torso, but it's hard to tell. Probably safest for everyone to consult their playgroup before including that card
On a related note, Argothian Enchantress is tagged in the Scryfall search but that thing doesn't look like a squirrel to me. Its appendages are damn weird and its head seems like a cross between a cat and a bat.
Also, I'd like to note that AFAIK Contraption's aren't casted so they won't trigger Acornelia's first ability (although I guess you can make them trigger the second one with something like Conspiracy + Titania's Song).

Might I suggest the new Setessan Champion and Aphemia, the Cacophony? Both would work well with the number of enchantments that you run. Argothian Enchantress would be great too if you can fit it into the budget.

Hey, consider enchantment tutors? Enlightened Tutor, Sterling Grove, Idyllic Tutor, even Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim for auras. Consider Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and Shielded by Faith? This combo would give you an alternative win condition that has synergy with the rest of your deck since Faith is fine with Rafiq. Sovereigns of Lost Alara + Eldrazi Conscription is good late game interaction with Rafiq.
I think lots of spells that only pump Rafiq once is wasting a lot of spots in your deck. Other than Berserk as well as Vines of Vastwood and Blossoming Defense which are also protection, the other spells could be cut especially the sorceries for cards that give repeatable pump/abilities, more draw, protection/opponent disruption.
Other cards to consider adding:
- Mystic Remora
- Grand Abolisher
- Argothian Enchantress
- Conqueror's Flail
- Wild Growth
- Utopia Sprawl
- Sigarda's Aid
- Eternal Witness
- Hall of Heliod's Generosity
Cards to consider cutting:
- Stealth Mission
- Larger Than Life
- Artful Dodge
- Arrester's Zeal
- Giant Growth
- Might of Old Krosa
- Mutagenic Growth
- Veil of Secrecy
- Might of Oaks
- Emerald Medallion
- Sapphire Medallion
Good luck with your deck.

I mean, I'd definitely include Sram, Senior Edificer. Argothian Enchantress also seems really strong. You might want to consider some legacy enchantress cards like Elephant Grass or Carpet of Flowers, although their power will depend pretty heavily on your meta.
I really like that you're running Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth already. You should run Arbor Elf with them... he makes more mana when lands are enchanted. In that vein, you may also have a lot of luck with Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Avacyn's Pilgrim and/or (if you're rich) Noble Hierarch. I've found a lot of players misjudge T1 mana-dorks and never play them, and they're almost always wrong not to.

Ah, yes. Enchantress decks are a consistent favourite of mine, much in part due to their potency and resilience.
I've tested well with Ajani Unyielding. It oft draws quite a few cards.
The newly printed Destiny Spinner is horrendously strong by her own accord.
I reckon this to be all from me.
Here is my decklist if you so wish to peruse: Karametra, Enchanting Goddess
May fortune be with you.

Is there a reason that you feel Constellation creatures must form a combo with Rite of Replication ? It is a different design, that is closer to Argothian Enchantress . It isn't even a strictly worse design. With them not triggering themselves it allows them to print stronger Constellation abilities at lower costs. Argothian Enchantress doesn't trigger itself, but being 2 mana makes it playable in a tier 3 Legacy deck instead of being played in only casual decks like Eidolon of Blossoms .

This came to me after I made my comment, but I think Cloudstone Curio could be used as a strong draw engine in this deck. Given that you have Argothian Enchantress , Eidolon of Blossoms , Enchantress's Presence , Setessan Champion and Verduran Enchantress , you could continuously bounce two small enchantments with each other to get a ridiculous amount of card advantage. You could even efficiently draw lots of cards with just Cloudstone Curio , Abundant Growth and Utopia Sprawl // Wild Growth as you can move the mana-enchantment on to other untapped lands to keep producing extra mana. You could even use it to get around your own Root Maze on your turn and you can bounce your lands for extra mana as well if you start running short on lands in hand.
Another card to consider for control purposes would be Quicksilver Fountain as you can slowly turn all your opponent's lands into Island s. This strategy is pretty effective in green commander decks as you can use cards like Crop Rotation , Sylvan Scrying and Ancient Stirrings to fetch Unstable Frontier . The trick with Quicksilver Fountain and Unstable Frontier is that you can have the fountain target one of your lands to put the flood counter on it, and then in response to the ability on the stack you'd tap the frontier to turn that targeted land into an Island for the turn. Because the land is now an Island it becomes an illegal target for the Quicksilver Fountain 's ability countering it which means the land will not get the flood counter. With this your opponents lands will end up mana-screwed while you'd get to keep your lands in tact. The best part is even if your opponent's remove the Quicksilver Fountain it will not remove the flood counters meaning your opponent's lands will remain permanently stuck as Islands. This means you could create a serious dead lock with Choke or create a ludicrous amount of mana with Carpet of Flowers . As a bonus, instead of Unstable Frontier you can also use Cloudstone Curio to help remove flood counters by bouncing your lands with each other.
Of course these strategies would run at odds with cards like Titania's Song and Null Rod , but they're helpful to keep in mind and if your meta ever becomes less artifact dependent it might be best to switch them out for these cards along with Extraplanar Lens as these 3 mana artifacts aren't affected by Collector Ouphe or Damping Matrix .
