Hey! Love the deck, got a few suggestions I think would fit really well in here.

Eidolon of Countless Battles is great for obvious reasons, he'll get huge, with all of these enchantments, he's a spirit, keeps in line with your low mana curve, and quite cheap.

Geist of Saint Traft is a great card, hexproof makes him a great target for your auras, he's a spirit, he makes fliers. A nice card to have a couple of. I'd probably swap him in for your Warden of Evos Isle s since your spells only cost two or three mana.

Followed Footsteps might be a possible replacement for Cackling Counterpart if you can handle the extra mana cost. It fits in great with your theme and can get out of hand pretty quickly in a multiplayer game.

Felidar Umbra is a neat aura to protect your best creatures from any potential removal thrown your way. Also the life gain is a nice way to outpace any other aggressive decks at the table.

Bident of Thassa is the last piece I think would be great for your deck. With all of your evasive fliers, you're sure to fill your hand back up real quick. and that activated ability can quickly put an end to a stalemate. Plus it's an enchantment.

since you said 'I love the concept of "one creature that wins" ' i take it you put all the friendly aura's on your commander? doesn't your commander get removed with something like Swords to Plowshares whenever an opponent can to cause all of those aura's to be put in your graveyard?

anyway, what about bestow creatures like Kestia, the Cultivator or Eidolon of Countless Battles ? also Steal Enchantment can give you two enchantments for the price of one. and Control Magic is pretty good.

then there's Nexus Wardens , Yavimaya Enchantress , Celestial Ancient and definitely Sage's Reverie .

also multicolored aura's like Shield of the Oversoul , Shielding Plax , Favor of the Overbeing , Steel of the Godhead .

I didn't see that you were using Eidolon of Countless Battles when I first glanced at this; so I suppose Hero of Iroas hits that too (including the Bestow cost if you should want) - still I'm not sure they're high enough cost that you really need to be reducing them that much. Not to mention, of all the cards you can reduce - two of them are only reducible by 1 colorless mana potentially anyway! Makes having multiple Heros in play kind of moot imo...

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, Heavenly Blademaster, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Brood Keeper. You don't seem to be focusing on auras, so maybe not the last two.

Crown of the Ages could be a sideboard card in case your opponents have enough auras to make it funny. It doesn't change control of the aura but you get access to other colors.

Vow of Duty, Vow of Lightning, Martial Impetus, Shiny Impetus and Bloodthirsty Blade are good defensive cards until you put them all on your guy and wreck shop.

As far as menace creatures go, I like Dreamstealer or Kheru Mind-Eater to deny the opponent of additional creatures. Red is also well known for menace since you gain access to Labyrinth Raptor, Sonorous Howlbonder, and the odd Sin Prodder. It also has a bomb in Master of Cruelties that benefits from a lack of blockers. Silent Arbiter can accomplish a similar goal to your auras when attacking if you don't mind embracing an exalted style, possibly via Sublime Archangel.

Another option could be to embrace the large number of auras with synergetic cards like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Kor Spiritdancer, and Sage's Reverie. Some other Arrest options I like are Pillory of the Sleepless, Prison Term, or the cheap Demotion.

Flickerform is a fun aura. It can be used to protect the enchanted creature from both boardwipes and targetted removal. It can also be used in conjuction with dudes like Heliod's Pilgrim, Totem-Guide Hartebeest, Auratouched Mage, or Boonweaver Giant to find more auras (these dudes even find flickerform int he first place, making it easy to set up an aura-tutor engine). You could even use Flickerform to set as a draw engine by flickering a creature that is enchanted with Unquestioned Authority or Sage's Reverie.

You might like these too: Flickering Ward, Kor Spiritdancer, Pariah, Darksteel Mutation, Murder Investigation, Hope Against Hope, Eidolon of Countless Battles, All That Glitters, Retether, Crystal Chimes

Hey Multimedia, you are right, i need to improve my lands. I dont know much about cheap lands on a bugdet, just have many gates laying aroung (which are just make your game slow, if you dont hit them early). I will add your considered lands. I am not sure about the bounce lands. What is your experience with them? I often feel like its slowing me down or is not advancing my board state. (But I am also not a very good player, so... :D)

Idyllic Tutor and Congregation at Dawn are nice inclusions. The deck feels a bit slow, so every tutor might help. Thank you for your help!

Hey king-saproling (what an awesome name btw!) I have to be honest, i actually dont care about the commander. It's just a requirement for the colours I am playing. I will playtest with them. I never used partner commanders, so I just ignored them all together. Eidolon of Countless Battles might be a good addition, since I am looking for more early game drops. I dont think this deck can hold up with late range or combo-decks. Although Keeper of Fables might be worth it, given the lack of card draw this deck has. Being out of gas is the worst feeling. Storm the Citadel could be a good finisher with Overrun.

Thank you both for your recommendations. I will gladly use some of them! :)
