Kor Spiritdancer Discussion
2 days ago
In the spirit of giving deckbuilding advice, and at the risk of sounding a bit obtuse, I don't think this deck is going to be competitive in Modern. Your only real protection is Sphere of Safety , which is too slow for Modern, and you will not realistically be able to benefit from either Celestial Ancient or Sigil of the Empty Throne , since you'll likely be tapped out after casting either, and will have to wait a whole turn before you can get any benefit. Finally, auras are just a bad strategy in a format with so much removal--your opponent can easily take out two of your cards using one of his or her own.
That said, Selesnya enchantments can be a fairly competitive deck, but it is an aggressive one, rather than a control one. The deck, often known as Bogles or Aura Hexproof, revolves around Slippery Bogle , Gladecover Scout , and Kor Spiritdancer to quickly drop low-cost hexproof creatures then start swinging with cheap enchantments like Rancor and other 1 mana auras (as well as Daybreak Coronet and maybe 1-2 copies of Spirit Mantle ).
However, if you want to keep with this plan, here are a few suggestions:

Heya, I need help to properly build up a enchantment/aura matters deck focusing around Champion of the Flame , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame and Kor Spiritdancer . My original idea was to combine it with the magemarks, which led to Mardu Magemark as my base for the deck.
But the more I look around what I want to include, the more I lose focus of the deck and stumble into another cool combos I want to include. (see the side/maybeboard)
I know some of these aura decks tend to use hexproof/unblockable creatures (e.g. bogle), but that isn't Timmy enough for me ;)
I'm open to splash into other colors (green have some nice tools for this kind of deck). Budget for this deck should be somewhat around 100$.
I hope I can get a more fast Feedback to polish the deck idea.

Okay, this list will probably be long so I'll see if I can break it up.
Eldrazi Conscription - expensive, but powerful aura
Spectra Ward - usually makes bruna unblockable
Spirit Mantle - usually makes bruna unblockable
Temple of the False God - land ramp, usually nice
Hedron Archive - ramp that turns into card draw if needed
Tons of tons of cards tutor enchantments, so consider those as well.

This deck seems to have a couple of weird things and a couple of holes in it. First off, your ramp seems to be through the roof and I don't really see why that's necessary. I would recommend cutting some of, if not all, the cluestones or maybe a sorcery speed ramp spell. Maybe consider switching one of your current sorceries for a Skyshroud Claim and probably switch Druid of the Anima for Sylvan Caryatid . Related to this is your current lack of enchantment cost-reducers. I would recommend adding one or two back in. You can switch some of your ramp for cards like Herald of the Pantheon or the new Starfield Mystic .
Next is card draw and tutors. You're not doing too bad at this, but I'm surprised you're not running Satyr Enchanter , Kor Spiritdancer , Sram, Senior Edificer or Open the Armory . Maybe even Three Dreams or Plea for Guidance are playable as well. Also, I think Harmonize deserves a spot because it can get you back in the game without any help.
Another thing you seem pretty weak on is removal. Both targeted and mass. I think Beast Within or Generous Gift or both would pretty easily fix your targeted removal. Maybe even Decimate or Qasali Pridemage . I think you ought to run at least one more board wipe. Single Combat or Divine Reckoning seem prudent. If you wanted to be able to hit more types of permanents, I'd highly recommend Tragic Arrogance .
My final category of things to add are other auras/enchantments and recursion/protection. Bear Umbra has been reprinted and it's still not here and Unquestioned Authority is also good. Also, the new Treefolk Umbra seems good enough to run. Maybe add back in Snake Umbra for card draw. Maybe On Serra's Wings or Asha's Favor for the host of abilities they grant and maybe Boar Umbra . For recursion and protection I'd say Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Umbra Mystic and Boros Charm are all cards that belong in here. Adding back in Retether seems like it would be fine and including either Eternal Witness or Auramancer or both might be good too. In general, I think this deck needs to be rebalanced a little bit.
Now, I'm sure you're thinking, "But my deck is already perfect. What am I supposed to take out?". I'm here to tell you, you're wrong and there are a few cards that seem ripe for removal. First off, Gideon's Intervention seems kinda silly in here. Really not what the deck wants to do. Maybe there are one or two cards that you really don't want to see in a game, but I think having single target removal in place of that would be better. Next off is Combat Celebrant . This guy is kinda slow, really vulnerable, and not an enchantment. If you really want this effect go with Aggravated Assault which, in concert with Bear Umbra, can give you infinite combats. Also, I think it's time for Wall of Reverence to bow out. It can gain you a bunch of life, but I don't think that it's worth the slot. As I mentioned before, the Keyrunes are easy pulls for some card draw spells, enchantment cost-reducers, and maybe another (probably basic) land or two. Maybe one or two other ramp spells (I might consider cutting Burgeoning if you don't add in more card draw) are worth cutting. I think 10-12 is a good number of ramp cards for this deck. Some of the weaker auras I'd look at are Scourge of the Nobilis , Felidar Umbra and maybe Mammoth Umbra and Burning Anger . Maybe I'm wrong about most of or all of those auras. That seems like the most difficult category to cut from.
I hope you've had fun reading all of this and that maybe a couple of my suggestions make a difference.

Icebrgr - Thanks for the suggestions! I was thinking about adding Kor Spiritdancer for Eidolon. After two FNM's I've only cast Eidolon once. I'm thinking about putting Brave the Elements in for Gleam of Authority now. In the two FNM's I've only cast Gleam once and I usually hate drawing it because I usually only have one creature out and would rather have another protection instant like Brave the Elements

I see you also run a lot of auras so Kor Spiritdancer and Sram, Senior Edificer would be nice enchantress pieces to include. There are others as well (i.e. Satyr Enchanter , Enchantress's Presence ). Pick and choose how many and which ones you need.
