Verduran Enchantress

Creature — Human Druid

Whenever you cast an enchantment spell, you may draw a card.

Thank you, Profet93, I appreciate it. I've played quite a few different iterations of Aura or Enchantress decks over the past 10 years, so this was definitely a fresh twist on an archetype that I thought I was basically done with. To answer your questions:

  1. I chose to go with more of the "When an enchantment ETBs, draw a card", combat damage, or Creature cast/ETB draw route. In my early play-testing, I felt that I didn't have a high enough concentration of enchantments to run the usual suite of Enchantress draw effects (Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, etc). Some of the older Enchantress/Aura decks ran 20-30 enchantments, so it felt more consistent with that type of concentration.

  2. I do have a copy of Replenish from some of my earlier jaunts down Enchantress/Aura Voltron lane. On a similar note as the Enchantress type draw, I felt that I didn't have enough of a concentration of Enchantments to run it, especially since this deck is much more creature heavy, and Aura Roles are most commonly going to be the types of Enchantments I have on board. In the games I've had so far, I haven't really felt I needed it, but I know it's there if I ever wanted to give it a spot.

  3. Tajuru Preserver is definitely a meta call, and kind of a pet card/inside joke with my best friend that got me into MtG. One of my first ever decks was a janky Bogles/Aura Voltron deck that evolved into a Heroic/Aura Voltron deck, circa 2013-14, when we were in college. My friend plays mostly Black, and always ran plenty of edict removal, so Fleshbag Marauder was the bane of my existence back then, until I started slotting in Tajuru Preserver. Since I still encounter plenty of edict based removal in my meta, mostly because of him, I wanted to have a means of having some buffer against that. There were a few games with this deck where someone got a Dictate of Erebos online earlier than expected, & this deck quickly folded to it until relevant removal popped up.

  4. I've liked Archetype of Courage the times I've played it, but I'm sure the deck could be fine without it. My meta leans a bit more aggro and go-wide, so being able to be the only with First Strike has helped in some games for offensive & defensive purposes.

Hello! I went through your list looking for spots to upgrade, but I found almost none: congratulations, it is really optimized!

Still, I believe you might want to consider some of these cards to increase your engine:

Ramp: Cultivate and Llanowar Elves could be Starfield Mystic, Bear Umbra, Burgeoning or Exploration instead, to stick with the Enchantments theme.

Draw: Don't forget the other enchantresses (Satyr Enchanter, Verduran Enchantress). I would take out Hyena Umbra and Cartouche of Solidarity for them.

Tutors: Heliod's Pilgrim might be better than Moon-Blessed Cleric, since it puts the card in your hand.

Pillowfort: Raking Canopy is probably more effective to deflect fliers than Spider Umbra. Elephant Grass could take White Sun's Twilight's place, since the former does not blow your own field.

Evasion: You might want Unquestioned Authority for extra evasion. It might replace Aegis of the Gods. (In my experience, players' spells do not usually target other players.)

Hate pieces: Rest in Peace, Ground Seal, Solemnity, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience are some cards you might want to include.

You might like Double Major and/or Mystic Reflection, both seem on theme and Reflection can be used aggressively vs an opponent's creature. Reflections is very good with effects that make lots of tokens simultaneously, such as with Ezuri's Predation, those two can easily win the game.

Does Proteus Staff make any sense in here? You have some token makers, this would turn a token into a main deck creature for a few mana. Another random card that might fit is Tyrite Sanctum, this can make your God Commander Indestructible in one step I think.

Really out there thoughts here, but have you even considered Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait/Tatyova, Benthic Druid? I think you have enough lands/land ramp to justify them, if I had 37 enchantments I'd run stuff like Verduran Enchantress I suspect. I also wonder about Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, if you have Aesi/Tatyova out, any non-token creature that ETBs will draw you a card, I think you could use it as a backup Commander in a pinch, since it turns all your non-tokens into lands.

I'd throw in a Mimic Vat and maybe Callidus Assassin, Rite of Replication and Evil Twin. Copies of their creatures counts as their creatures right?

Verduran Enchantress maybe? Mark of Eviction and Contempt can be cast over and over.

Arcane Lighthouse and Detection Tower so you can steal creatures with hexproof.

OK, Update Time! :

In addition to the other mentioned cards from the comments that finally got in, i managed to get my hands on some stuff:

IN:

Arasta of the Endless Web went in for good Blockers (and it is a Enchantment Creature)

Verduran Enchantress for more Draw with the Enchantment Syergy

OUT:

Ruination just a little bit too brutal. And put some more NonBasic Lands in

Fire Diamond and Moss Diamond out for Talisman of Impulse

If the BW deck uses lots of enchantments, Ancestral Mask is pretty strong. It's also a card that's a great payoff for using lots of enchantments yourself. For the record, I suspect Enchantments as a theme is much more supported than Equipment is, there are incredibly borked cards like Serra's Sanctum (Tolarian Academy is banned), Academy Rector, and Replenish (the best of it's kind, but there are assorted other cheap versions), while stuff like Hall of Heliod's Generosity and many various Enchantresses (there aren't as many for Equipment I think) including Verduran Enchantress and Kor Spiritdancer are also very good. I have a Boros deck that uses creatures that draw cards off of enchantments being cast and stuff like Flickering Ward that I can recast over and over, I think Green has a bunch of other solid Enchantress cards, stuff like Setessan Champion. I think you can definitely run both and do fine, but if you wanted to go all in on one, Enchantments is really well supported in Bant.

If your Commander will usually have Double Strike, you probably could run Inquisitor's Flail, it's a really strong equipment with First Strike damage.

Not sure if you've got enough creatures to make it a viable alternative, but something like Pathbreaker Ibex could be an amusing backup Commander if you lose Rafiq somehow, maybe an Oubliette. The neat thing about Pathbreaker is that it can also double it's power (and get trample) after you buff it up, so it can be a very fast clock as well, and it has the not insubstantial upside that if you have a few creatures out with Rafiq you can just clobber people with a big Ibex swing.

AstroAA on Secret Lair: June 2022 Superdrop

All in all, I'm actually a big fan of this superdrop. For all of them, especially in regards to the foils, the value is there. I was reading a reddit thread, and it stated that the value for them using the cheapest existing foil printing is:

  • Foil Kelogsloops = $89.38 not including Mystic Remora foil.
  • Foil Rule the Room = $197.57
  • Foil Chris Rahn = $109.16
  • Foil Livia Prima = $97.37
  • Foil Volkan Baga = $273.33

I'm definitely getting the Volkan Baga and Kelogsloops ones. I run a Sythis, Harvest's Hand deck that utilizes both Utopia Sprawl and Verduran Enchantress and I still need them both in foil (~$20 and ~$60 respectively). Considering that them two cards in foil by themselves are equal to the cost of both Secret Lairs discounting shipping is 100% worth it for me imo. Plus the art on the Mystic Remora is absolutely gorgeous and I would love to have it in foil for my Oona, Queen of the Fae deck.
