Sphere of Safety

Enchantment

Creatures can't attack you or a planeswalker you control unless their controller pays X for each of those creatures, where X is the number of enchantments you control.

Sphere of Safety Discussion

Caerwyn on Selesnya Enchantment

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.

SP3CTR3_chelts on Nahiri prison help (budget)

Hey had a look at your deck, I have not played boros prison but have played against it. I don't think your deck is really a prison deck, you have no permanents that imprison your opponent (except mabey ajani)

But onto a challiceless prison deck, making it without chalice will put you at a major disadvantage. I have seen an enchantment based prison deck that runs traditional prisons: Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety ect and other hate pieces Leyline of Sanctity Suppression Field Blood Moon Rest in Peace Rule of Law can be quite successful :)

wallisface, yeah Ghostly Prison or Sphere of Safety would play nicely into the decks theme instead of Ensnaring Bridge .

Nice deck! Sphere of Safety should also be good in this deck. Teferi's Moat would also be a fun addition to this deck. Dovin Baan would also be a hilarious addition, especially with his ultimate. Grand Arbiter Augustin IV should also be an addition to this deck. Brago, King Eternal is a reset button. Archon of Absolution is a useful addition.

I hope these suggestions help a little!

Very surprising that Heliod, God of the Sun isnt in here. He's an awesome mana sync and makes cards that you have like Ethereal Armor and Sphere of Safety soooooo much better. Additionally, All That Glitters and Skybind are pretty good; if you do put in Serra's Sanctum and Heliod, God of the Sun you can make an overwhelming amount of clerics by blinking Serra's Sanctum with the trigger from Skybind and dumping the mana into heliod.

I originally had Ghostly Prison in the deck, but replaced it with the Polluted Bonds since Norn's Annex and Sphere of Safety are both in the deck. I was thinking of adding Kismet as well, but figured since it only targets a single player and Loxodon Gatekeeper targets all opponents, it wasn't as beneficial. What would you recommend to pull if adding those cards?

No Bojuka Bog , Exotic Orchard , Commander's Sphere , Field of Ruin , or any of the Talismans. Yet, I see Path to Exile , Strip Mine , Phyrexian Arena , and Rhystic Study . While all of these are commander staples in their respective colors, I'd recommend refining the deck before just making a budget '5 color Good Junk' deck. While card advantage is great, the money would be better spent on something like Smothering Tithe , Revel in Riches , Black Market , Land Tax , Exploration , or Burgeoning . At least those will help cast your commander faster.

Cut out some of the nonbasic lands, starting with guildgates, and put in the Panorama lands, and swap the bounce lands for basic lands (unless you intend to add landfall).

Where's the quick ramp spells? Cards like Farseek , Cultivate , Explosive Vegetation , and Rampant Growth .

Furthermore, there's a severe lack of tutors. Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation , Open the Armory and Eladamri's Call are all very budget-friendly tutor staples for EDH.

I also see that you're running Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower , but have you considered Spell Book, Praetor's Counsel , or Library of Leng ? Library of Leng has the added benefit of protecting you from discard effects. If you're going to run cards like Phyrexian Arena and Rhystic Study it pays to protect your hand.

How about protection yourself while you're at it. Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Sphere of Safety , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Glacial Chasm , Solitary Confinement and other such cards make great protection for decks with few to no other creatures.

Back to the subject of drawing cards. What are you even trying to draw for? You don't seem to have any major combos worth drawing for. At least throw in some cards like Furnace of Rath , Bitter Feud , Curse of Bloodletting , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Inquisitor's Flail , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and/or some double strike equipment/enchantments. Or Helm of the Host with a toke copying effect like Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession , Growing Ranks , Second Harvest , Rhys the Redeemed , and Primal Vigor .

Just some things to think about.

Some curses are better than others. I'd cut Curse of Vitality for sure, it won't really influence other people that much. Curse of Shallow Graves is pretty situational as well, and Curse of the Bloody Tome can actually help the opponent.

Navigator's Ruin i'd only run if you really want to mill, and Kaya's Ghostform won't often help as much as you like. I really don't see what Shield of the Realm wants to do here, nor Strider Harness .

I'd cut the guild lockets and replace them with the signets.

For some cards to add, i'd recommend at least looking at Bident of Thassa for card draw, Sigil of the Empty Throne , Etchings of the Chosen , Smothering Tithe , Intangible Virtue , Divine Visitation , Etherium Sculptor , Magus of the Moat , and Sphere of Safety

I can come up with some more suggestions if you like, these are just off the top of my head
