Estrid, the Masked Discussion

Lol, so the answer is do op green things. That's part of the reason why I didn't switch Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest to Estrid, the Masked for $1 enchantress, even before I cut a third color. One of these bald monks inevitably turns into generic value stuff, because green.

I have considered both of those cards. Wheel of Sun and Moon is probably not going in since this deck uses more traditional ways of recursion and little tutors, i.e enchantments are more useful in my graveyard than they are in my deck. I could use it as way to shut down decks like Meren of Clan Nel Toth or Chainer, Dementia Master, but that seems a bit narrow. I'll think about it more though.
Archon of Sun's Grace is absolutely going in, as soon as I can get a copy of it.
The problem with planeswalkers in enchantress decks is that the creature count can be low, and enchantments like Propaganda don´t help you protect them. Estrid, the Masked is an exception since her +2 can untap an enchanted Tuvasa to protect herself. Also, since I have an Academy Rector I can cheat Omniscience into play as well.

One thing I noticed with this deck the other day is focus...your commander is really good at tapping/untapping, and you seem to want to go voltron, so maybe focus in on that a bit.
One thought I had that could combine that a little is if you did Enchantment Voltron, you can maximize your land untaps by enchanting them with cards like Fertile Ground, make your creatures really large with cards like Ancestral Mask, and keep untapping them and protecting them with Estrid, the Masked. One note is enchantments are a bit more frail than equipment, and you don't have to go all-in on one or the other, but focusing means you can take advantage of some of the really strong cards in a given strategy, like the enchantress effects like Setessan Champion for a more enchantment-focused deck.

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:
Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.
Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

A friend was playing Estrid, the Masked this weekend. Her +1 ability is to untap each enchanted permanent you control. The player didn’t have any enchanted permanents but he stated he was using it, and added a loyalty ability each turn. Is this legal? If a plainswalker ability won’t cause the specific effect to take place, do you still get to add a loyalty counter? Thank you for your help!

I know you don't want black but the first thing I have to suggest is Mairsil, the Pretender he doesn't have any activated abilities himself but play him once and he becomes an AEtherling . Then just keep paying and he gets more and more abilities from more and more things. He doesn't really have too many of the normal staples either or at least not the way I've built. Sol ring of course and some other mana things but my Should I Pretend This Or That? is fairly unique.
There are some other commanders that include black that fit the activated ability thing really well but I'll restrain myself... Marath, Will of the Wild is crazy powerful. Zacama, Primal Calamity leads to some great shenanigans though he is a little slow to get there. Phelddagrif is all huggy but fits in with the no black activated abilities thing.

The good news in losing Estrid however, is that it gives you a good excuse to cut blue entirely.
With only basic lands in your mana-base, playing three colors is hard. I know you have Realmwright to help out, but with only two colors, you wouldn't even need to rely on its mediocre ability. ( Urban Utopia is still at least playable with 2 or 3 colors, but they could be Abundant Growth which is actually decent.)
That leaves Ordeal of Thassa as your only good blue card, making the cut pretty easy.
On a sidenote, if you want enchantment to be good in modern, you probably shouldn't go for the midrange route, as it invites you opponent to two for one you, making you lose the value you are trying to gain.
But hey, good and decent are two different things, and depending on your playgroup, you may not be in need of an actually good deck to compete.
Just know that if you want to make improvements, I'd be happy to help :)

I play an Estrid, the Masked deck as well and have been considering adding a "self mill to win". Have you considered adding Life from the Loam and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales ? With Exploration and Burgeoning Life from the Loam seems like a natural fit. Tamiyo, Collector of Tales is a little more vulnerable but could still work. I would suggest swapping them out for Fractured Identity and Anointed Procession .
