I am sorry, but I was looking at this list, and how come it is missing Helm of Obedience? It is an auto kill.

3n3rgy2 thank you for the comment! I appreciate it!

I've thought about running Solitary Confinement, but in the end I've never actually gotten around to doing anything with it. As for Privileged Position, in my opinion the CMC is too high for this deck. As for Helm of Obedience, I'm not a particular fan of it due to it having an activated ability, and I'm trying to limit myself on artifacts and activated abilities. I'm even getting a Null Rod from a friend hopefully soon to add an additional source of hate against artifacts with activated abilities.

I appreciate the compliments about the deck! Honestly my favorite thing in Magic is fine-tuning decklists, and while I definitely think this deck needs some optimization (namely Living Plane in place of Nature's Revolt and Savannah in place of Scattered Groves just to name a few), I think it's pretty much as close to done as it's going to get without spending several thousand dollars on getting four to five cards.

Again, thank you!

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!

Thank you very much Nyrmak!!! I’m glad you like where the deck is going. I feel like it is definitely stronger now with these recent additions.

MrNoodlesworth, I forgot to mention that now Dauthi Voidwalker combos with Helm of Obedience along with Leyline of the Void . Now the Helm combo is twice as likely to pull off, and Voidwalker is easier to cast than Leyline.

I’m also experimenting with Volrath's Stronghold (since I am no longer running Planar Void or Relic of Progenitus and am running more creatures now), as well as the new Profane Tutor (which is slow due to suspend, but when cast during the early turns is very useful for setting up a combo or tutoring for removal). To make room I cut Night of Souls' Betrayal since I am running Tourach, Dread Cantor .

Helm of Obedience looks for cards being put into the graveyard. Anowon, the Ruin Thief looks for a creature card being milled. You can still draw when milling to exile.

Omniscience_is_life: Hmm, seems unlikley considering Helm of Obedience + Leyline of the Void is an inf mill combo

So, the most popular two card competitive g/w enchantment combos are the following, all of which are powerful on their own, but win w/ combat on the following turn or with another effect, such as Altar of the Brood , or in another way.

They are: Rest in Peace + Helm of Obedience , Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft , and Parallax Wave + Opalescence

Other options are Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Walking Ballista , Siona, Captain of the Pyleas + Shielded by Faith !
