Hey, I love the deck! I have a more competitive Sisay build, and I’ve been really interested in changing it to a shrine build. I know that all of the enchantresses aren’t cheap, but there are a few that are affordable that I’d highly recommend.
- Eidolon of Blossoms . This is a great card draw for little mana
- Satyr Enchanter . This is cheap and it’s on cast. Great card
- Mesa Enchantress . Really similar to Satyr Enchanter.
- Setessan Champion . Card draw and eventually a threat.
- Verduran Enchantress . A little more expensive $-wise, but still affordable
- Tuvasa the Sunlit . Not only does she give you card draw, she buffs Sisay by +3/+3 all on her own.
The two enchantresses that have constellation would be the ones I’d put in first, followed be Tuvasa. Since Sisay will be tutoring, it’s more important to have ETB triggers instead of cast triggers.
Because this is an enchantment deck, I’d also recommend some ramp that deals with Enchantments. Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic , and Fertile Ground are all great options.
Destiny Spinner is a great card to protect your enchantments.
Grim Guardian is a nice card to get some incremental damage.
Protean Thaumaturge is a fun card that can become a threat out of nowhere.
But anyways, I hope that helps!

Looks like a super fun, casual deck! Nice brew, though I would cut back on the creature count to make room for more enchantments. Kruphix, God of Horizons, Satyr Enchanter, Herald of the Pantheon, Alseid of Life's Bounty, and Nylea's Colossus are all good cards, but they're either redundant or are goodstuff cards that have other enchantment applications (Though you may want to consider cutting other, as the cards mentioned are powerhouses. Just a couple suggestions). Good build, I like where it's headed

The example of 601.2f given above is a bit of a distraction. I assume it was meant to show how cost increasing/reducing effects impact the total cost to cast a spell, but it doesn't have anything to do with CMC. As shown in the example of 202.3, CMC is strictly the sum of the symbols in the printed mana cost. Herald of the Pantheon doesn't have any interaction with the abilities of Fires of Invention or Matter Reshaper.
Note that is considered zero at all times except when the spell is currently being cast and on the stack, in which case it takes whatever value was chosen for it. For example: Blaze in your hand or in the graveyard has CMC = 1. If it's on the stack as a spell with X = 5, then it has CMC = 6.

Ahh okay makes sense. But what about creatures that give buffs? Wouldn't you want to run creatures that are useful in the game, yet doesn't matter if they die? For instance, you could run Herald of the Pantheon and use more enchantments with it, as it reduces their generic mana cost by 1. Also, unless you completely control their hand or draws or the battlefield, creatures are useful for chump blocking and protecting your life-points.
And I completely agree, if Eldrazi Displacer were for enchantments I would love it even more, but displacer is useful for cards like Eyeless Watcher, which could give 4 eldrazi scions of sacrificing to get 4 generic mana, instead of 2. But the cost of exiling and retrieving is kinda expensive on Eldrazi Displacer.

If I used Herald of the Pantheon and make my enchantments one generic mana cheaper, does that count as cheaper CMC for Fires of Invention? Or is that wrong and Fires of Invention just uses the default CMC without modifiers? Also, if I use Herald of the Pantheon, will I be able to use Matter Reshaper when it dies for a 4 CMC enchantment when it is beforehand reduced to 3 mana by Herald of the Pantheon?

I love the idea of enchantment-decks! I would recommend adding more copies of Enchantress's Presence and suggest including Herald of the Pantheon or other enchantments that synergize like All That Glitters or Ethereal Armor :)

I don't know. I feel like the creature based aggro decks like humans, spirits, and tokens aren't that much of a threat with Ghostly Prison and Seal of Fire. The spell based aggro decks are what Leyline of Sanctity was targeted at because it can save you against burn or discard decks.
