the defense on these cards together is pretty tight and they are all cheap, I just need a way of hitting back or winning by alternative means

Aegis of the Gods Greater Auramancy Solemnity Phyrexian Unlife greater auramancy is surprisingly not legendary so if i have 2 of those out or that and a Sterling Grove then this combo forces the opponent into using enchantment sweepers, which most players are unlikely to run as a mainboard card.

Pretty straight forward deck build, green white enchantments, with the ability to give everything shroud. when my combo pops off I can make myself unkillable by normal means the only downside is I don't have a big way of doing damage. I was going to use green hydras until I realized those are contradicted by Solemnity, now I'm looking for an alternate win condition that can fit green and white. I'm open to adding 1 more color if necessary, just need some ideas for a win condition, right now I'm thinking Approach of the Second Sun

main strategy and defense of the deck is to get this going. Greater Auramancy Sterling Grove Solemnity Phyrexian Unlife

Hi m8,

This looks positively gruesome. I like it a lot, so a +1 for sure!

Considering a lot of your deck's power is coming from enchantments, have you considered Greater Auramancy? For a similar reason, this deck seems mad good for Academy Rector (you have plenty of ways to kill it off yourself, should you want to).

Thanks for your creativity; you rock.

Kind regards,

KyleWynne22 if that's the case, you could probably get away just fine with cutting the Survival of the Fittest for Sylvan Library. Of the others you mentioned, the only one of them that I'd say is most needed is the Serra's Sanctum, but then again it's price alone is more than the other three combined. Wheel of Sun and Moon is super nice, but something like Library of Leng is a really budget substitute; only real reason we run Wheel over it is because Wheel is an enchantment. Greater Auramancy just provides additional redundancy that Sterling Grove provides, and you're probably fine with most cards in the maybeboard as a substitute. Deserted Temple you could probably just throw in another basic land. Really it's only purpose is to untap Serra's Sanctum and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

I know I already said you could replace the Survival of the Fittest with Sylvan Library, but another option is Congregation at Dawn, as it's a more direct tutor.

Great List! A buddy of mine runs a very similar shell here except his commander is Tuvasa the Sunlit. His main goal is to establish Solitary Confinement in tandem with his enchantresses to always have enough cards in hand to keep the confinement around! He plays Privileged Position Greater Auramancy and Sterling Grove to establish a soft lock for removal on his pieces. Eventually he will find and use cards like Idyllic Tutor and Enlightened Tutor to grab Helm of Obedience or Rest in Peace to mill us out. As far as a win-con goes, it is also not "efficient" as it only shoot one player. I would recommend solitary confinement though. That card can buy you a lot of time. Even though you cannot play cards like rhystic study I feel like you still draw enough cards to supplement it well! Hopefully this quick synopsis helps and if not, the deck looks incredibly solid here! Nice work!

nbarry223 I generally reject ramp enchantments in Prison as there aren’t many mana sinks to compliment it. As for shroud, I think we have good coverage between the seven slots of Sterling Grove and Greater Auramancy.

wereotter on Proxies, yay or nay?

My view of proxies has changed over time, and the longer I play, the more okay with them I am.

It dawned on me, especially with how the cost of cards has skyrocketed over this past year, that it's a very elitist mindset to not allow them. Example, I bought a copy of Angus Mackenzie back around the time the first Theros set came out for about $70. While still very expensive for most people, now it's far worst with him currently (according to mtggoldfish) commands a price of $550. And there are similar stories for may other old cards. Think Greater Auramancy not a reserved list card, and if you were playing 10 years ago, you could have picked it up for about $5, but if you're trying to get it for a deck today, you'd have to spend $75-80 to get that same piece of cardboard.

So that being said, why should a new/returning player have to pay more for a card to play in their deck just because they weren't playing X years ago? Or didn't have the foresight to buy it when it was cheap if they didn't have any reason to think it would skyrocket like it would, or didn't realize they'd need it years later? If I tell someone I can play with the card I bought when it was cheap, but they can't make their own cheap copy of, then that's me gating someone else out of playing the game at the same level as I am.

My feelings evolved initially with the concept that I'd keep a binder of staple cards for the format and proxy them into decks. Basically that idea of if you own one, you can run it in any deck you want. But then started looking at cards that aren't very strong but do have niche uses in certain deck, but also are expensive because reserved list. So I made up some pretty realistic proxies of those cards. I knew I'd never run those cards in any deck other than this one commander where it made sense to do so, and didn't feel like it made the deck too powerful, but also wasn't worth the cost of buying it. This in turn lead me to the mindset of not being willing to spend insane amounts of money on cards Wizards refuses to reprint to meet the player demand, even if I don't own the card. And now I just received back from a local printer an entire commander deck of 100% proxy cards, all professionally run off on the right weight cardstock for about $35 including shipping.

Obviously I do think this needs to be balanced by knowing who you're playing with and what level of power those people will want to proxy up. But that's the same thought of playing with those people even if they had all paper cards.... so it's not terribly likely that proxies are the problem here.

Greater Auramancy may be a good consideration.

Great deck!
