Abilities that trigger when something resolves trigger after the spell/ability is done resolving. So Tom Bombadil will not trigger off of The Phasing of Zhalfir, but will trigger off of an Elspeth Conquers Death that returns Tom as its third chapter ability.

608.2n Once all possible steps described in 608.2c–m are completed, any abilities that trigger when that spell or ability resolves trigger.

I would joke about "how can it be a Stax deck without Smokestack", but that's separate, and instead I'll offer up some possibly evil advice:

Green has lots of stuff like Noxious Revival and Bala Ged Recovery  Flip that can get your Shivan out of the graveyard, and as I've pointed out there are some White cards that let you reanimate it if it's dead (or iirc take it out of exile if someone exiles it, with Pull from Eternity).

I looked up to see if there were some more decent White reanimator effects, there is Karmic Guide (also provides a blocker), Defy Death (pretty bad), Invoke Justice (better but how do you cast this!), Enduring Renewal (really, really janky), Second Sunrise (very situational), Angelic Renewal (seems good), Breath of Life (solid), Cleric Class (mana hungry/low synergy with deck), Elspeth Conquers Death (maybe?), False Defeat ($$$), Late to Dinner (good), Marshal's Anthem (mana!), Miraculous Recovery (good), Resurrection (fine), Reya Dawnbringer (so much mana). There is probably a few more, but here is a starting point, I think with your Commander the Sorcery ones make a lot of sense, but a creature that can repeatedly reanimate Shivan seem like better fits but I don't know how annoying it will be to Egg into them.

You know, you could take advantage of the discard effect further by changing up your strategy a bit. There are plenty of playable reanimation spells in White, for example, that would love a powerful discard outlet like Mageta. Invoke Justice is a very playable card that comes from a long line of no-nonsense reanimation spells: False Defeat, Breath of Life, Resurrection, Late to Dinner, oh and there's Elspeth Conquers Death, of course. I personally really like the idea of Angel of Serenity since it can be a very flexible removal spell, a way to protect creatures from a future board wipe, or a triple reanimation spell. There are tons of other reanimation spells in White, so there is enough for a pretty deep theme here.

Containment Construct also loves discarded cards during your main phase. Too bad it's a creature, but it still has potential.

Planeswalkers probably play really, really well with Mageta as well since they typically flourish on clear boards. Most Elspeth cards make creatures, and many Gideons have indestructible, so they survive board wipes even as creatures. I like Gideon Blackblade in particular because not only does he naturally have indestructible on your turn, but he can give indestructibility to another creature every turn and is also relevant removal.

I hope this is helpful!

Thank you. As i said, it‘s not finished yet. I guess i will run it tonight for the first time.

As for the removal section, i don‘t like that many removal spells. I like it more, when your removal-options synergize with your deck-theme. Therefore, i’ll try to use Goblin Bombardment, Honden of Infinite Rage, Doomwake Giant, Elspeth Conquers Death (etc.) or protection pices like Gift of Immortality.

I think, Lithoform Engine can fit in any deck… and with a little preparation it can go fot the win… i hope so at least

xram666 thanks for the suggestions!

So, hear me out here; I don't run O-ring because I don't run any flicker effects. I have some identical removal enchants in the sideboard, but haven't found myself needing more removal, atm. I don't have a particularly good reason why I've selected the other two over Oblivion Ring, except the Banishing Light is foil. Lol. Sheltered Aerie - this effect I have in spades in my Arena Historic Brawl version of this deck. It's a pretty cool effect to have, but I'd cut them all day long for a 2 cost rock that produces both/either colors. The luxury of ramping on t2 is just too nice! Sphere of Safety I actually just cut. So, there's a high density of low-cost enchants specifically so that you can churn through the deck with any one of the enchantresses in the deck. Because of this, I'd rather be able to play 3-4 enchants a turn than a couple of fat ones. When I originally built the deck I had a lot of higher cost enchants in the build like Sphere of Safety, Elspeth Conquers Death, Phyrexian Unlife / Solemnity - cards and combos that took way more investment and it just didn't feel as smooth. I had originally run Ghostly Prison, as well, but found the effect to only be handy when I was already behind. On an average board, I didn't find myself missing that Prison style effect.

I'm glad you enjoyed the deck, though! I really appreciate the input!!

Cool thanks for the advise, maybe I'll have to dig up some old Angelic Renewal and add Elspeth Conquers Death
