No.

Before the Ascended Lawmage spell has resolved, there's no creature to target.

After it has resolved, it has hexproof, so it isn't a legal target for Hero's Downfall

If an opponent casts Ascended Lawmage , before it resolves can I cast Hero's Downfall and kill creature before it "resolves"? Or creature has hexproof as soon as its cast and enters the battlefield?

These suggestions are made with my previous suggestions in mind, that I assume you liked via your comment upvote.

These are my considerations for your removal... I don't do it often but most of them just dont do much other than offer you the hexproof ability.

Troll Ascetic : problem with regeneration is you gotta hold mana for it. Easy to forget.

Soul of the Rapids : doesn't do much for it's cost.

Sagu Mauler : I mean it's ok... but just doesn't do alot other than have abilities.

Prognostic Sphinx : I see no reason to want to discard cards for optional hexproof. Scry's nice but there are better options for card advantage.

Ascended Lawmage : Again, cost vs stats... it's just not there. One mana less would have changed my mind...

These are just what I can think of... again, with my previous changes in mind.

Heroic Intervention : and similar cards can protect you from board wipes and other spells that don't target.

Steel of the Godhead & Shield of the Oversoul : mostly for the evasion, but the other options are nice too.

Wild Growth and similar cards could be useful if moving towards more of an 'enchantress voltron' style deck.

Curiosity for extra cards, coupled with an evasive creature.

Rancor & Spirit Link keep returning to use again.

Octopus Umbra : great for the evasive creatures. Also for anything that has accrued counters, then it becomes 8/8 + counters and hopefully unblockable... maybe even Ishai.

These are the iffy ones... they could stay, or go. Up to you

Multani, Maro-Sorcerer : other players can control the stats my discarding/casting etc. Sure it could get big but its subjective. Also if we follow a voltron strategy you cant target t either.

Witchstalker : on curve, but unless it's a meta call because U/B is common... but idk.

That's all I got for now, perhaps look into some bant enchantress decks to get some more ideas for enchantment support. I think the hexproof theme is a great idea, it just needs the support of the enchantments to make it shine. Hope it helps some at least.

Obelisk Spider might be a better commander, hurts Ascended Lawmage too.

Very surprised not to see Ascended Lawmageon this list. It is very brutal in pauper EDH as a format with limited board wipes (especially outside of black).
