Last_Laugh Perhaps it should slot in over Doomwake Giant, though. That may be the play. I'll do some play testing. Thanks again for the Broodmoth suggestion! It wasn't even on my radar.

OK here we go lol

Creature cuts: Archon of Sun's Grace, Composer of Spring, Courser of Kruphix, Doomwake Giant, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Nessian Wanderer, Nyx Weaver

Artifact cuts: Mesmeric Orb, Whip of Erebos

Enchantment cuts: Battle for Bretagard, Boon of the Spirit Realm, Cast Out, Exploration, Familiar Ground

Sorcery cuts: Extinguish All Hope, Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, Skyshroud Claim

Instant cuts: None! Add things like Veil of Summer & Silence, though

I'd recommend that you replace all of those lands ramp spells that cost more than 2 with more mana rocks instead! Your guild signets (Selesnya Signet, Orzhov Signet & Golgari Signet) & talismans (Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Resilience & Talisman of Unity) are all better options since this isn't a Landfall deck.

I feel like you skipped over a whole slew of the development of Enchantress as an archetype and therefore presented it as being a deck in search of a win con before Theros. It has always been tier 2 jank in legacy, but it was powerful enough to take occasional large tournament wins.

You mentioned Urza's block and mention the two cards with "Enchantress" in their name but not Serra's Sanctum or Replenish. The latter two actually make it into competitive eternal decks and Yavimaya Enchantress does not.

The Sanctum in particular is extremely important to the way the deck developed. The plan in many eternal enchantress decks is legitimately to hardcast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. This still takes until turn 5 or 6 and is durdly as hell for the format, but all that mana from the Sanctum makes it a legitimate plan. Alternatively the win condition in many others is to plop down a Sigil of the Empty Throne and go wide with 4/4 angels. I even have a friend who ran Words of War as a wincon, again greatly aided by the Sanctum.

The "dig to the combo" you mention that is actually played is Helm/RIP and is the third commonly played wincon. And I'm not sure I agree with the assessment that it defies expectations, or should be abandoned in favor of playing blue. At its heart Enchantress as an archetype is GWx control and the wincon can be almost anything.

Wincons from Theros were never even added to eternal Enchantress, they kept the old wincons and added at most a few Eidolon of Blossoms and a few Doomwake Giant. The return to Theros did give us Destiny Spinner who is a wincon that is run. MH2 also had a large impact on eternal Enchantress by adding Sythis, Harvest's Hand and Sanctum Weaver.

This isn't to say that there haven't been strong enchantments coming out recently. Or that it isn't nice that they are supporting the archetype to an extent that a standard deck can be made out of it. It is just that if one wants to talk about the evolution of the archetype it should be done primarily in the context of competitive eternal formats where it will remain unchanged until a card changes the archetype. With mentions of rotating and casual formats to show the archetype across the whole of Magic.

Your deck is way too heavy, and you have alot of 1s and 2s of cards.

For starters I'd take out

Doomwake Giant - he's a weak boardwipe at best but with as heavy as this deck is you won't have enough Enchantments to kill anything of real value

Pharika, God of Affliction It won't be a creature most games and it's 5 Mana for himself and 1 Enchantment token

Eidolon of Blossoms its just too much Mana. In modern games can be over as soon as turn 4 and you won't have time to get any value out of him. I'd add more copies of Sythis, Harvest's Hand it's much cheaper and much easier to get more value.

Underworld Coinsmith just doesn't have enough time to utilize him to give you enough value. This is what I'd take out for starters. Now I'd move these cards to your sideboard as they aren't needed/used every game. Destiny Spinner Seal of Primordium

Now I'd add more of these cards that are already in your deck Sythis, Harvest's Hand Herald of the Pantheon and Sanctum Weaver this should help make this more consistent. I hope this helps.

Whenever anyone asks this kind of question, I always default back to my favorite sets/planes. And also Rule 0 partner decks. lol

I apologize in advance if none of these are the kind of thing that you're looking for.

I really enjoy my Satsuki, the Living Lore deck. Most, if not all, of the relevant sagas are all cheap and some of the best cards in the deck that care about counters (like Power Conduit and Nesting Grounds along with various proliferate cards) were reprinted in New Capenna's Brokers commander deck, so those are also pretty cheap. Add in cards like Historian's Boon, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle and any constellation/enchantress effects you see fit and that's pretty much the core of the deck right there.

Kairi, the Swirling Sky is a really fun clones deck that I use on Arena's Historic Brawl format. Basic gameplan is to make as many copies of Kairi as possible, only to watch them die to the legend rule and benefit from the death triggers.

Toralf, God of Fury  Flip is another deck that I have and really enjoy. It makes mono red burn possible in commander, and the way that Toralf interacts with damage doublers such as Dictate of the Twin Gods means that the "trample" damage your spells have get amplified for each creature you kill with it. I have a better description of it on my deck's page, if you're interesting (not trying to self-advertise, I promise). Not sure how well this deck could be built on a budget as I'm not sure how much the damage doubling cards are at the moment (as they're kind of crucial).

Any of the five Amonkhet gods. Oketra the True, Kefnet the Mindful, Bontu the Glorified, Hazoret the Fervent and Rhonas the Indomitable never get as much love as the Theros gods and it makes me sad (because Amonkhet is my favorite plane). Their drawbacks are fairly substantial, I will admit, so they're a bit of a challenge to build. Might be what you're looking for?

Ghen, Arcanum Weaver but as an aristocrats style deck where you sacrifice enchantment creatures like Nyxborn Rollicker, Hopeful Eidolon and Gnarled Scarhide to recur stuff like Doomwake Giant. Could also be a hybrid enchantress kind of deck if you lean heavily into the Bestow mechanic. (Hm. I actually really like this idea...)

You could also run some "illegal" partners. I usually only try to do this if they have some sort of story significance, though. For example, I have a young Urza, Powerstone Prodigy and Mishra, Excavation Prodigy precon power leveled deck that I love. Hans Eriksson and Saffi Eriksdotter is one I've wanted to build for a while. Also maybe Gisa the Ghoulcaller and Stitcher Geralf? Or their newer versions, Geralf, Visionary Stitcher and Gisa, Glorious Resurrector? Stuff like that.

Optimator Doomwake Giant is in there! I thought about those Erebos cards, I’ll probably put them in eventually.
