Umbra Mystic

Creature — Human Wizard

Auras attached to permanents you control have totem armor. (If an enchanted permanent you control would be destroyed, instead remove all damage from it and destroy and Aura attached to it.)

Kor Spiritdancer a better shram in the deck id run both

Eidolon of Countless Battles + for each aura

Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist moves auras especially for faith fetter type effects

Heliod's Pilgrim aura tutor

Boonweaver Giant aura tutor onto a body

Umbra Mystic Totem armor effects in general are good. One of the recent precons was aura based id look at that one for ideas!

Nomad Mythmaker recursion

Skybind interesting flicker effect for enchantment perms with sigardas aid out you can blink your lands to cast more auras next opponents turn. or flicker tokens etb creature ect.

Mistveil Plains return auras to re tutor for with your commander.

Homeward Path vultron doesn't like opponents taking their toys

Lost Leonin Infect if you choose is an option here is one to look at.

Flickerform Decent especially if you run auras that etb draw

Hero of Iroas cost reducer that gets a benefit when targeted.

Faith Unbroken removal aura

Sage's Reverie HIGHLY suggested card draw and powerful aura

Sphere of Safety If you want a late game plan this might give you time to do something else like Approach of the Second Sun

Yeah Heliod's Pilgrim has been on my Maybeboard for quite some time now (several months at least). The thing is, in practical applications (having played literally hundreds of games with this deck now), I've found very little use for Tutoring of any kind given all of the Card Draw this deck generates.

Being able to flip Flickering Ward on and off Kor Spiritdancer just chews through the library already (even more so with more than 1 Spiritdancer in play).

I had toyed even with something like Enlightened Tutor or Idyllic Tutor, but even those I found very little actual need for as I can (pretty much) count on getting at least 1 key combo off per game most of the time. My gripe then with the the Pilgrim becomes, apart from his tutoring (which I could just duplicate with one of the white Enchantment Tutor spells) he's just a plain creature. I much prefer having targets like Aegis of the Gods or Umbra Mystic or Kor Spiritdancer for my enchantments where the creature itself offers some additional form of power and/or protection for myself, so adding in Pilgrims kind of felt like just reducing the chance of drawing one of the actual enchantments I'm after instead while feeding the Spiritdancers. Like adding an extra step to combo'ing.

Not that the Pilgrim is bad, indeed in many aura builds I can see him playing a key role, just that in a construction like I've done up here where I'm just spamming Card Draw most games, I think he's just unnecessary and too underpowered to be a valuable target himself for building up with Auras.

Either way, good luck to ya!

Working on the card draw and acquisition:

Sram, Senior Edificer

Kor Spiritdancer

Argothian Enchantress

Season of Growth

Setessan Champion

Armored Skyhunter

Siona, Captain of the Pyleas

End game requires consideration of going going long or wide:

If wide, switch commander to Siona, Captain of the Pyleas and include cards like Shielded by Faith, Gift of Immortality, Flickering Ward, Spirit Loop, Rancor, Fortitude, Whip Silk,Auratog, Thaumatog.

If long, add better protection enchantments. Suggestions include, Holy Mantle, Alseid of Life's Bounty, Spirit Mantle, Gift of Immortality, Umbra Mystic, Unquestioned Authority, Spectra Ward.

Siona would be my push because she adds combo lethality. Sythis is just a great 99 imo.

Shouldn’t forget, All That Glitters, Shield of the Oversoul, Gryff's Boon, Helm of the Gods, and Ancestral Mask

Sry, for double... But Hyena Umbra and Felidar Umbra could provide some additional protection to your commander. Umbral Mantle would provide some pseudo-vigilance pump effect.

And Umbra Mystic would push the totem armor-strategy even further.

Oh and Cunning Rhetoric is awesome against enemy attacks :)

Why not cards like Kor Spiritdancer , Mesa Enchantress and Umbra Mystic ? I have a Bruna deck that fairs very well in most situations, if you want to peep the list.

Those are definitely cards that would fit great in the deck, I didn't even know that Umbra Mystic existed! Thanks for the suggestion, I'll definitely give them a try.

Umbra Mystic and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker are both good options.

MrXilas on Budget Tuvasa the Sunlit

Battle Mastery for big swings, Spirit Mantle for evasion , and Witchbane Orb for making sure things can't target you to get to Tuvasa. If you are feeling rich, Umbra Mystic will give Tuvasa layers of protection. If you want to visit Magic Christmasland, Corrupted Conscience for a swift takedown.
