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:

  1. Add some ramp, like Llanowar Elves (or the less budget-friendly Birds of Paradise or Noble Hierarch ).

  2. Add some more interaction, such as Path to Exile and maybe Naturalize in your sideboard.

  3. Add a few of the creatures from Bogles, even if you do not want to commit 100% to that strategy.

You're missing the greatest aura of all time: Rancor .

Rancor its cheap, gives you that trample push and goes to your hand if you gotta lose something in your push.

19 lands with 9 3 drops doesn't seem that optimal. A lot of times you'd be tapping out to play those 3 and even 2 drops leaving your board wide open without a Vines of Vastwood or Blossoming Defense type card for backup. Also, I think Rancor should probably be next on the chopping block for some amount of Dismember . You can find them at a reasonable cost nowadays. Just my two cents though. Keep stompy alive!

Check out Sheltering Light , Defiant Strike , Dromoka's Command , Prey's Vengeance , and maybe Rancor ?

If you get big creatures, you probably want flying or trample so Angelic Gift ?

(sorry, I missed Larger Than Life while looking over the deck! Still, Rancor is great and I still suggest it, the more cards you have that give trample the better.)

You definitely need some way to give the Pummeler trample so that all that damage actually lands. I'd suggest running a set of Rancor , which also adds damage to be doubled, but you should also probably look into other options in addition to it.

I'd also get rid of Become Immense , since you don't have any reliable way to put cards in the graveyard consistently enough to cast it for cheap on the right turn.

Fun deck, though!
