Curious Obsession Discussion

I have not played pioneer in a while either, so take what I say with a grain of salt I suppose... There will be a TLDR.
Generally speaking, Weenie Hut can use some of the better token producers and can run with that idea pretty strongly. I'd suggest running 3 or 4 of History of Benalia , 3 of Legion's Landing Flip, and then you can cut down to 1 of Castle Ardenvale if that helps you mana at all! Curious Obsession is fantastic in these types of decks, and so is Adanto Vanguard , so running 4 of both is your best bet as well. Skymarcher Aspirant is also another 4-of lock in my eyes. Spectral Sailor and Siren Stormtamer are early fliers with upside.
Another option is the run some planeswalker aggression through Gideon(s). Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is probably your best bet, however, my personal favorite version of him is Gideon Blackblade . The passive ability 4/4 indestructible that also gives vigilance, indestructible or lifelink can be very helpful!
If you utilize this type strategy, it does make cutting some creatures and cards overall pretty simple. Luminous Broodmoth just won't work with tokens, so that is probably an easy cut. Search for Azcanta Flip is too slow, so I think that comes out. I think that Ephara comes out as well since the plan might change to flurry of little creatures between turns 1-2-3, the goal is to be empty handed and threatening to kill by turn 4 or 5. That also means Dream Trawler should go, but I'd understand wanting to keep a late game insurance policy.
TLDR-- Knights/White Weenie with a splash

TriusMalarky thanks for the suggestions! I do appreciate a turn one mana source always, and Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are great for that. And while as an elves player in both modern and commander I greatly appreciate dorks, I don't really care for them with Tuvasa because they don't really synergize with the deck's game plan. By using ramp-chantments I can push my enchantment count to almost forty, allowing me to always easily draw cards. Its also worth noting that I don't really need Tuvasa out at all if I have another enchantress. Argothian Enchantress and Satyr Enchanter are strictly better as far as drawing cards goes, and can come down on turn two themselves. Tuvasa is helpful mostly as an enchantress I can always have access to if others fail, who also has the option of knocking someone out Voltron style if they give me the chance. Its not uncommon to have a near perfect game while having never cast her though, so trying to get her out on turn two at all costs isn't really my goal here. I also can very much appreciate the auras which draw cards strategy- I had losts of fun playing Mono Blue Tempo with Curious Obsession in standard a couple of years ago, and that strategy can be great in blue-green tempo decks in commander also. That being said, it isn't really my goal here as I am taking more of a control approach and thus aren't attacking much. I do think all those suggestions do point to the fact that Tuvasa can be played well a lot of different ways, and what you're suggesting could make for a great deck, it'd just be different than I've gone with here.

Playing the turn one Llanowar Elves into a turn two Tuvasa feels so good and is just so powerful. Even though they aren't enchantments, in my experience the dorks allowed me to draw that one extra card by having Tuvasa in play a turn earlier anyways.
Also, I like to use cards like Curiosity , Curious Obsession , Keen Sense , Sixth Sense , Snake Umbra and Ophidian Eye . Tack those onto Tuvasa to draw tons, or just slap it onto one of the mana dorks for some card draw.

Favorable Winds is also pretty solid and very useful against sweepers
Curious Obsession is probably worth running over staggering insight as the half mana cost will generally be better than lifelink
finally im a big fan of Spectral Sailor as its a solid turn 1, its a spirit which is great instant speed pump for wanderer and its late game card draw.

Ok, that helps a lot! Mirror Shield is your friend. Curiosity is possibly better for you than Curious Obsession . I'll copy this deck and see what I can add to help you keep pace with the green decks. Are you open to multiple colors, or do I need to stick to monoblue?

Thank you for those tips libraryjoy. Negate is probably better for the later game and I have Curious Obsession in there so mostly so that I can draw an extra card per turn when I attack with it. Those green bois are actually my friends yes. My main struggle comes across when I can't pick up the pace fast enough and win in the first few turns and they manage to put out their large creatures or when they put out creatures with reach and deathtouch in the first few turns. They both bought a few anti-flying cards specifically to counter my deck.

So my commentary - Change your deck type from Unformat to Casual. Since you are primarily facing ramp decks, Negate might be better than spell pierce, unless you often use it early game. I would definitely put in one more Island at least. Not sure about Curious Obsession - maybe you could drop one of those?
What struggles do you have with this deck? Overall it looks pretty well-built and consistent. Are there some cards that you are not excited to see come up or that never seem to have a good time to play them? Is there one strategy you would like to focus on more?
And side note, are your friends the 2 "Green Bois" I helped earlier in the last couple of weeks? If so, that will help me put together specific cards that might help defend against their strategies. If not, no worries, and I'll focus on general Bloo-galoo!
