I have just made some major changes to this deck; for the first time ever, I have changed the general of this deck, replacing Uril, the Miststalker with Marath, Will of the Wild, because, while Uril was certainly an excellent general, it did not match the theme of this deck, which contained a mere six auras, whereas Marath does, and, upon making that change, I have decided to further emphasize this deck's theme of +1/+1 counters, specifically, by replacing Armadillo Cloak, Bear Umbra, Runes of the Deus, Scourge of the Nobilis, Shield of the Oversoul, and Snake Umbra with All Will Be One, Cathars' Crusade, Warleader's Call, Fertilid, Kalonian Hydra, and Steelbane Hydra; I had contemplated putting Forgotten Ancient in this deck, but I was not able to find space for it, and I also wish to minimize overlap with or similarities between this deck and my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice EDH deck, and, while this deck does not have quite as great of an emphasis on generating creature tokens as does my Ghired, Conclave Exile EDH deck, I still believe that it has a sufficient focus to justify the inclusion of Warleader's Call, which also has great synergy with Tamanoa. I also replaced Titanic Ultimatum with Pathbreaker Ibex, because the creature can use its ability repeatedly. I had considered putting Cabaretti Ascendancy into this deck, but I feel that this deck does not contain quite a sufficient number of creature cards to justify the inclusion of that card.

Overall, these changes reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 40.6 to 4.05, which is only a minimal change, but doing so also reduced the number of colored mana symbols in this deck, which is also a very good thing.

What does everyone else say about this? Do you believe that I did well with overhauling this deck?

I have replaced Armadillo Cloak, Favor of the Overbeing, Shield of the Oversoul, and Steel of the Godhead with Blind Obedience, Cosmic Rebirth, Sylvan Library, and Trelasarra, Moon Dancer, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.71 to 3.68, since those cards far better fit the theme of this deck.

You could have infinite damage by giving S&H lifelink and having a "gain life = +1/+1 counter" ability on board.

E.g. any of these: Ajani's Pridemate, Trelasarra, Moon Dancer, Voice of the Blessed, Celestial Unicorn, Light of Promise, Sunbond, Gideon's Company, Ageless Entity, Cleric Class, etc. (there are more)

Plus anything like these: Lifelink, Spirit Link, Basilisk Collar, Shadowspear, Spirit Loop, Felidar Umbra, Armadillo Cloak

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?
