Armadillo Cloak

Enchantment — Aura

Enchant creature

Enchanted creature gets +2/+2 and has trample.

Whenever enchanted creature deals damage, you gain that much life.

I have replaced Armadillo Cloak and Gift of Orzhova with Golgari Germination and Hidden Stockpile, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.97 to 3.95, because, while the two auras were nice cards, the latter enchantments have far better synergy with this deck.

Hey, there! This looks really fun :)

As far as making things a little more competitive, one thing I can offer is: As someone who runs an Esper combo deck, one of the biggest things you can do for a combo deck is to make your combos synergize better with everything else in your deck, and not just each other.

Right now, I see Lurking Roper/Famished Paladin, Presence of Gond, and Healer of the Pride as an infinite combo where each piece is 1) hard to tutor, and 2) doesn't synergize with your overall gameplan of massive creatures dishing out damage.

An alternative infinite combo that synergizes better is Savage Ventmaw and Aggravated Assault, since both those cards do things with the rest of the deck without each other.

So, if I did the switch over to a more synergistic set of cards, I recommend replacing:

Ageless Entity -> Lathiel, the Bounteous Dawn

Colossal Dreadmaw -> Blossoming Bogbeast

Enduring Angel  Flip -> Archivist of Oghma - enduring angel looks dope, but your life total shouldn't hit zero.

Famished Paladin -> Faeburrow Elder

Healer of the Pride -> Serra Ascendant (just broken in EDH).

Verdant Sun's Avatar -> Old Gnawbone

Wall of Reverence -> Smothering Tithe

Presence of Gond -> Armadillo Cloak

Elemental Mastery -> Kenrith's Transformation

Alhammarret's Archive -> Aggravated Assault

The idea behind some of the picks is to get lifegain ability out a bit more consistently, and create fuel to power your giant creatures. I also don't know what your budget looks like, so full disclaimer there: some of the cards I recommended are expensive.

Happy building!

Hi, KongMing.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've played with these before, and I did enjoy playing them. Especially Armadillo Cloak since it gives pseudo lifelink which can be combined with lifelink to give double life gain.

Unfortunately they are too mana expensive for this deck. This deck will really go off with small auras. So the less the mana cost, the better. Ideally I would like the auras here to cost just 1 mana so that I can draw a card per mana. It doesnt really matter if they are very good, as long as I can get them on the board. Cards like Ancestral Mask will make every last one of them count :)

Finally! The enchantress wincon I have been looking for. I have been wanting to build an enchantress deck for so long, but kept finding the play style and wincons to be rather boring/repetitive. Even though Stuffy Doll has been around for ages, I never put 2-an-2 together until seeing Phyrexian Vindicator.

G/W enchantress burn here we go! Time to break out Guilty Conscience and Armadillo Cloak to pair with Aetherflux Reservoir.

As for other cards:

Get ready to see The Mycosynth Gardens in multiple formats. Card looks pretty strong and versatile.

Ichormoon Gauntlet seems borderline too much. Kill on sight in commander.

Tekuthal is cool. Seems more of a in the 99 type of card though.

Phyrexian Atlas has some of the coolest art of the set in my opinion. It's a shame that such an awesome depiction of the layers of New Phyrexia is scrunched up into a little card frame.

Love this deck!

They're a bit steeper on the mana cost, but what about Armadillo Cloak and Unflinching Courage?

I'd add in a bit more trample (Armadillo Cloak?) to break through stalled board states.

You have two Armadillo Cloaks in here at the moment. Maybe switch one out for another creature, like Gladecover Scout or Silhana Ledgewalker for some quick offense?

Fantastic brew, I've never seen an Arahbo deck with Kaheera in the loop so this is really neat. I have some card suggestions but you may have thought of these before. I typically don't play Selesnya either, but there are some real bangers that change games IMO. It just depends on how specific you want the direction of the deck to be, since I see you like running enchantments and instants as your pump instead of equipment.

Defense of the Heart a creature tutor, that yeah, depends on the opponents board but completely changes the tempo of a game.

Hunting Grounds filthy if you find yourself with the Threshold trigger early.

Heroic Intervention solid protection

Arachnogenesis more solid protection

Akroma's Will provides indestructible and more--a flexible card

Return of the Wildspeaker is pump or card draw

Congregation at Dawn nifty tutor?

Berserk nasty pump

Other pumps:

Unflinching Courage basically a second Armadillo Cloak

Unquestioned Authority pro-creatures!

Shield of the Oversoul filthy

Again, I'm not saying all of these should go in--just suggestions that popped in my head while looking at your list and cards you may have very well thought if already. Great job with this--I think Arahbo in particular is a great commander!
