I would also recommend Knight of the Reliquary as it's quite consistent to activate in a draw-heavy GW only deck, worst case functions as a dork and has a huge ceiling in grabbing hall of heliod's generosity and nykthos. Having a card like her filling the grave with lands does also make Life from the Loam better (though as you can prob tell by now I am biased towards that card).

I also think Divine Visitation, while a really solid win condition, might be somewhat inconsistent. By my count you have 5 sources of tokens that are smaller than the angels (Heliod, Siona, Arasta, Archon, and Dawn of Hope), most of which are quite mana intensive. With the relatively small amount of ramp it just appears somewhat inconsistent. I would HIGHLY recommend playing God-Eternal Oketra if you pivot away from Visitation as you do have a surprising amount of cheap creatures, on top of being easy to draw back into with so many draw engines.

Another small thing is potentially cutting some of the less-than stellar draw engines given what your commander gives you, like femeref enchantress, nylea 2.0, and vivien. There is a certain point where I feel some of these synergistic cards are still just worse than some staples, though that isn't necessarily me recommending you play them as they're likely less fun.

If you agree with any of these I'd fill some holes with land ramp as with an enchantress commander, mana will be your limiting factor way more often than cards in hand. I feel my suggestions may make your deck more generic for what its worth. Also I'd personally play Stony Silence but I am mean like that.

multimedia on Tuvasa- Enchantment Voltron

Hey, good start on a budget version of Tuvasa.

Some budget cards to consider adding:

Some cards to consider cutting:

  • Azorius Signet
  • Lightning Greaves
  • Selesnya Signet
  • Simic Signet
  • Swiftfoot Boots
  • Chromatic Lantern
  • Arcane Signet
  • Reclamation Sage
  • Llanowar Elves
  • Danitha Capashen, Paragon
  • Transcendent Envoy
  • Herald of the Pantheon
  • Starfield Mystic
  • Kestia, the Cultivator
  • Sun Titan
  • Creeping Renaissance

Consider more enchantments, less mana rocks and creatures? Adding more land auras as well as more enchantresses could replace mana rocks, Sol Ring is the exception. With only Sol then Stony Silence could disrupt your opponents artifacts. More advice for cuts is to streamline the creature base. Use the other creature spots to add more enchantments.

Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic and Transcendent Envoy could be cut for more low CMC enchantments since you have more low CMC enchantments then higher CMC ones which makes these cost reducers subpar. To replace Greaves and Boots for protection for Tuvasa instead use some auras. Vanishing can be repeatable protection for Tuvasa and all auras on her from removal even board wipes. When Tuvasa phases out all the auras she has also phase out. When she phases in at your next untap step all the auras also come back still with her.

Seal of Primordium and/or Seal of Cleansing are artifact/enchantment removal that are enchantments which can be saced at instant speed. Either Seal is an upgrade for Reclamation Sage .

Good luck with your deck.

Saccox si in effetti per un mazzo idra,lo vedo meglio con il nero,quel tocco tenebroso che ti protegge.Buona l'idea di usare Winding Constrictor e in più usare Corpsejack Menace insieme a Kalonian Hydra è una bomba termonucleare.Ritornando al tuo mazzo hai ragione,hai bisogno di qualche rimozione.Potresti anche usare Leyline of Sanctity per proteggerti dai danni diretti e Stony Silence per gli artefatti,ma alzano il prezzo del mazzo.Purtroppo sui colori bianco e blu ho pochissime idee.

Cards in the side that I think could work in the main are Dungrove Elder , Ambuscade , Rancor , Shield of the Oversoul , and maybe Ironscale Hydra . Cards that fit the general idea of the sideboard include Kogla, the Titan Ape , Mold Shambler , Reclamation Sage , and Yasharn, Implacable Earth . Other common SB options in these colors could be Stony Silence , Rest in Peace , Leyline of Sanctity , Selfless Spirit , Kor Firewalker , Rule of Law , Force of Vigor , Qasali Pridemage , and Scavenging Ooze .

At this point, this deck is far enough removed from the deathtouch lure plan that I think it could be worth swapping out those cards to go all-in on bogles or aura/hexproof instead. Cards like Slippery Bogle and Silhana Ledgewalker tend to pair well with aura buffs like Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor .

A lot of cEDH lists are turbo combo decks. They claim that "stax requires an understanding of the meta" when Stony Silence reads "$2, : $300 of each of your opponent's decks is now unusable" and Deafening Silence reads "nobody gets to win unless I say so".

Lujotheganker on UW MIRACLES (post mystic sanctuary ban)

3 months ago

In the post ban modern meta game, where we had to part with cards like Field of the Dead , Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath , Simian Spirit Guide and most importantly (as a miracles deck) Mystic Sanctuary , there are several control/combo decks, that are not going to be playable anymore. Uro decks, ad nauseseam decks, etc. With the absenc of these abussive control decks, I reckon there's going to be a lot of "land decks" coming back. Titan-shift, tron, eldrazi-tron, and decks in general, who abuse their vast mana base. For this reason, this is a note to my future self (as my ocd won't allow me to have some cards in the deck, that I have no intention of buying right now), on what to put in the side-board. First off, I think there should be 2x Surgical Extraction , which work reall well with Field of Ruin , and then getting rid of all these non-basic (non-interactive) mana sources. I think aggro decks will be very popular - burn, death's shadow, humans, that's why I think 2 (or even 3) copies of Timely Reinforcements will be a must-have. Two Celestial Purge are a staple against jund, so no change there. One copy of Ashiok, Dream Render for the grave-hate. I'm not a big fan of Rest in Peace , because I like working with my graveyard with Logic Knot and Snapcaster Mage , so I'll be leaving them out. Two copies of Dovin's Veto and one Dispel for the control mirror matches. Two Monastery Mentor , because simply I'm in complete love with this card, and I'll play it till the end of days. 2x Stony Silence for the artifact deck, another staple here. And one copy of Teferi, Hero of Dominaria for the grind matches with a lot's of turn.

Please let me know if you have other suggestions/predictions for the future of miracles (or uw control in general):-)

Some of the best ramp for enchantress builds come in the form of enchantments. Things like Wolfwillow Haven , Overgrowth and Smothering Tithe have the potential to ramp you just as much as your sorcery ramp.

Things like Grim Guardian and Hogaak probably don't let you win as much as you'd like. You only have 1 artifact, and might want to add Sol Ring even if it's a nonbo with your Stony Silence . Maybe add in Root Maze ?

It's fun to see enchantress builds that move away from bant colors. Cool concept +1

@DuTogira: You're not really thinking about where Chrome Mox fits into the format vs. Simian Spirit Guide . Simian Spirit Guide is like an uncounterable Lotus Petal that isn't shut off by Stony Silence with the only downside being you can't recur it. Chrome Mox requires you to pitch a card and it's an artifact that has to be activated.

Where does that even fit in Modern? Cascade decks don't play it because Violent Outburst into Chrome Mox is all kinds of feel bad. Storm doesn't really want it because of the card disadvantage. You could do something stupid like Island -> Chrome Mox -> Exile red card -> Goblin Electromancer , but that leaves you with only 3 cards to try and win with (4 on your draw step). They basically have to be Gifts Ungiven , ritual, ritual, Manamorphose . If your opponent Lightning Bolt s the 2/2 or blows up the Chrome Mox , you won't be able to do anything other than cast Gifts Ungiven and pass. Griselshoal is in a similar spot, where it's already struggling to get the combo running. And Urza decks aren't even playing a full set of Mox Amber , so it's not like another mox that struggles to work because 70% of the deck is colorless is adding anything.

So where does that leave Chrome Mox ? Probably in a similar position from when it was in Extended. It gets used like another copy of Aether Vial for aggro decks or another mana rock for midrange. The most likely places you'd see Chrome Mox are in decks like D&T, Infect, Fish, Ponza, and the odd combo deck like Oops! All Spells or Griselshoal.

I'm just speculating and obviously I can be wrong. I think, though, that a more serious question needs to be had regarding Modern's banlist. If we can unban Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Bitterblossom , maybe we need to reevaluate what cards are problematic and what cards are on there because they were too good in Standard, Extended, or previous versions of Modern. We also need to consider which cards are causing other cards to get banned, Urza, Lord High Artificer or Ancient Stirrings being good examples.
