Starfield of Nyx
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return target enchantment card from your graveyard to the battlefield.
As long as you control five or more enchantments, each other non-Aura enchant you control is a creature in addition to its other types and has base power and toughness each equal to its converted mana cost.

Courser of Kruphix doesn’t have enough hate. Our other draw engines will often times net us multiple draws per turn. More creatures also fills the symmetry break of Out of Time. Spinner and Sythis are equally vulnerable but far more versatile.
If Mana Bloom weren’t limited to once per turn, I could consider it. Even then, it’s a repeatable cantrip. What hate to cut? Alas, the limitations.
That is not how sagas work. That would be pretty strong value if it was.
Starfield of Nyx has always been a trap finisher for the deck. It’s very tempting and sounds like anti-hate to get a thing back every turn. But there’s a lot of nuance that goes against Starfield. Once your enchantments are creatures, they are not only weak to creature removal but combat as well.

how about Courser of Kruphix for artificial card draw by playing lands from top of library?
Mana Bloom is one that looks like ramp, but you could also make x = 0 and just bounce it back to your hand when you don't need ramp, triggering your draws as needed.
The Birth of Meletis nets you 3 plains and 2 blockers before blowing itself up.
Starfield of Nyx could be a win-con if you have the shroud/hexproof things out, as you could basically weaponize all your enchantments that are blocking you. I wouldn't play it against decks likely to have wipes, or if you don't have some kind of protection out though.

Hey, the best thing about Starfield of Nyx is the card art.
I'm sorry that it was a first expensive price card you got, but it's not a good card or one that's really needed. I'm not a fan of Starfield, it's too slow as enchantment reanimation compared to other cards and it's second effect doesn't work with auras, even if you control Enchanted Evening since auras are still auras.
If you control Starfield of Nyx and Enchanted Evening at the same time then all your lands are destroyed as being 0/0 creatures. You'll also have to control Mirari's Wake since you need an anthem effect that affects all creatures you control for your lands to live. This takes three 5 drops all being on the battlefield at the same time for Starfield to not to have a drawback. Adding less CMC anthem effects for all creatures you control is not something you want for the rest of your deck.

I like having it in there to add a “go wide” strategy plus it was my first card I bought as a single over $10 but I’m not sure if I am trying to go too many different directions?

Rule of Law can be powerful to cheat onto the battlefield with Zur. It will slow down your opponents more than you because you have a repeatable source of tutoring for enchantments. Vanishing can repeatedly protect Zur from anything and all auras/equipment that's with him. When he phase out all cards that are with him also phase out and all don't return until your next untap step.
Profane Tutor can tutor for any card, just have to wait two turns with suspend. Moon-Blessed Cleric can tutor for any enchantment and Heliod's Pilgrim can tutor for an any aura. Archon of Sun's Grace is an upgrade for Ajani's Chosen . Sovereigns of Lost Alara is another way to tutor for and cheat Eldrazi Conscription onto the battlefield.
Some budget land upgrades to consider:
- Exotic Orchard --> Thriving Isle
- Path of Ancestry --> Thriving Moor
- Caves of Koilos --> Scoured Barrens
- Sunken Hollow --> Temple of Deceit
- Port Town --> Tranquil Cove
- Shineshadow Snarl --> Temple of Enlightenment
Good luck with your deck.

Since you're using Starfield of Nyx , I would even go as far as using Confusion in the Ranks to completely befuddle your opponents. A funnier combo when you give your enchantments hexproof or shroud, like, say, with Greater Auramancy or Spiritual Asylum . And, if you want to make it even funnier, you could create creatures that are copies of enchantments with Nightmare Shepherd , though you lose enchantments to exile this way. Better for removing opponents' enchantments and combo pieces while gaining your own.

I've also built a Sythis deck, and while you seem to be taking more of a creature-based approach, I took a more stax-based approach. My list is here: [EDH] Sythis Enchantress
All in all, it seems reletively solid for a creature-based deck. However, I do think you need more enchantments. I don't know if you have a budget or not, but things like Greater Auramancy , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Luminarch Ascension , Carpet of Flowers , and Concordant Crossroads are all cheap CMC enchantments that put in work in my list. I'd also advise adding in more protection, such as Veil of Summer and Autumn's Veil , as that can help protect you against counterspells and spot removal.
I'd recommend cutting Castle Garenbrig , as this is a multi-colored deck and you only have four creatures with activated abilities costing mana. I'd also advise trying to trim down your CMC, as you probably want to be drawing as many cards as possible per turn. You don't necessarily need things like Starfield of Nyx or Privileged Position , or even things like Mirari's Wake in my opinion.
I will say though, I am a bit of a hypocrite because the main wincon in my deck is fairly expensive. I use Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite paired with Nature's Revolt to kill everyone's lands or Linvala, Keeper of Silence paired with Nature's Revolt to prevent anyone from using their lands to tap for mana.

Mesa Enchantress is good at keeping you hand full
Starfield of Nyx is great for keeping your destroyed enchantments in the battlefield, if it comes to that.
Starfield Mystic is good for making all enchantments a little cheaper and more aggressive, and can make a good get huge very quickly.
great deck! I love enchantment builds.
