Tuvasa the Sunlit Discussion

On Ixalan, there is The Great River, as well as its nine tributaries: Tishana, Kumena, Pashona, Vuhana, Mitica, Notana, Falani, Tuvasa, and Kopala.
Here's on of the Tributaries:
The Mitica Sudd
: Add , , or to your mana pool. The Mitica Sudd doesn’t untap during your next untap step.
, : Target player reveals their hand. You may play a card from their hand or graveyard without paying its mana cost. If you don't, gain control of a permanent that player controls.
I'd like to see another one of the Tributaries. If you'd like some reference, here are the shapers of some of the Tributaries: Tuvasa the Sunlit, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca, and Kopala, Warden of Waves

Hey, well done so far on budget upgrade of the precon, but there's some filler cards here that look out of place.
If you want to go the direction of more enchantments/auras then Tuvasa the Sunlit as Bant Commander is someone to consider instead of Galea since she interacts much better with enchantments. Currently you have a mix of both enchantments and equips and that direction does go well with Galea as Commander. Consider adding more cards that have interaction with both auras and equips?
- Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist --> Valiant Endeavor
- Open the Armory --> Contingency Plan
- Armored Skyhunter --> Assault Suit
- All That Glitters --> Prodigious Growth
- Nettlecyst --> Collective Blessing
Galea doesn't have built-in protection which is what you want with a voltron Commander and a good upgrade you've done is Darksteel Plate. Swiftfoot Boots and Winged Boots are nice from the precon, but consider others than also give evasion?
When Galea has huge power then being able to attack unblocked can outright end an opponent with lethal Commander damage. Flying and trample evasion is not as a sure way as unblockable.
- Aqueous Form --> Index
- Steel of the Godhead --> Shielding Plax
- Prowler's Helm --> Blessed Spirits
- Rogue's Passage --> Tranquil Thicket
Good luck with your deck.

Great List! A buddy of mine runs a very similar shell here except his commander is Tuvasa the Sunlit. His main goal is to establish Solitary Confinement in tandem with his enchantresses to always have enough cards in hand to keep the confinement around! He plays Privileged Position Greater Auramancy and Sterling Grove to establish a soft lock for removal on his pieces. Eventually he will find and use cards like Idyllic Tutor and Enlightened Tutor to grab Helm of Obedience or Rest in Peace to mill us out. As far as a win-con goes, it is also not "efficient" as it only shoot one player. I would recommend solitary confinement though. That card can buy you a lot of time. Even though you cannot play cards like rhystic study I feel like you still draw enough cards to supplement it well! Hopefully this quick synopsis helps and if not, the deck looks incredibly solid here! Nice work!

My enchantment deck was a 5-color deck, houseruled to be led by Genju of the Realm , then Chromanticore . Then, as of our second visit to Theros, I felt I had enough gas to cut the red and black and run Tuvasa the Sunlit .
My temur token clone deck used to be Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer , added green with Tana, the Bloodsower + Thrasios, Triton Hero , changed to Riku of Two Reflections after I got tired of Thrasios' shenanigans, switched to Tana, the Bloodsower + Sakashima of a Thousand Faces after getting annoyed with Riku, did a stint as Esix, Fractal Bloom , and then I realized I live for the stupid stuff red adds to the deck that I went back to Tana + Sakashima.

Removal or not, it's still true. Even with high numbers of interactive spells, cEDH players only have a handful of ways to kill a resolved stax piece. While they can draw tons of cards and tutor stuff, it can still take a table rotation or two before somebody takes care of your stax piece.
Actually, I watch cEDH gameplay a lot(got into it during quarantine and I don't play digitally) and from what I've seen, even in no banlist games, a Kataki, War's Wage stuck in play for the whole game. It never died. That's when everybody had multiple moxen/crypts/rings/etc in play. Stax pieces stick around for a long time in general.
I mean, in my playtesting(4 decks pitted against each other), even though I have increased enchantment hate as one of my decks is Tuvasa the Sunlit stax, it's still pretty difficult to get rid of the stax pieces. Not impossible, but they stick around for several turns, easily.

Hey, I love the deck! I have a more competitive Sisay build, and I’ve been really interested in changing it to a shrine build. I know that all of the enchantresses aren’t cheap, but there are a few that are affordable that I’d highly recommend.
- Eidolon of Blossoms . This is a great card draw for little mana
- Satyr Enchanter . This is cheap and it’s on cast. Great card
- Mesa Enchantress . Really similar to Satyr Enchanter.
- Setessan Champion . Card draw and eventually a threat.
- Verduran Enchantress . A little more expensive $-wise, but still affordable
- Tuvasa the Sunlit . Not only does she give you card draw, she buffs Sisay by +3/+3 all on her own.
The two enchantresses that have constellation would be the ones I’d put in first, followed be Tuvasa. Since Sisay will be tutoring, it’s more important to have ETB triggers instead of cast triggers.
Because this is an enchantment deck, I’d also recommend some ramp that deals with Enchantments. Wild Growth , Utopia Sprawl , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic , and Fertile Ground are all great options.
Destiny Spinner is a great card to protect your enchantments.
Grim Guardian is a nice card to get some incremental damage.
Protean Thaumaturge is a fun card that can become a threat out of nowhere.
But anyways, I hope that helps!

Seeing Roon of the Hidden Realm above Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Amareth, the Lustrous, and in the same tier as Tuvasa the Sunlit strikes me as odd. Is there some secret tech that pulls Roon out of tier 4(casual)?
Liesa, Shroud of Dusk still needs to be added. Probably goes right next to Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Almost exactly the same 99. Her tax effect also hits creatures, but she costs more mana in exchange and isn't one-sided, so it evens out.
