multimedia thanks for the suggestions. I especially like the Whip Silk interactions. I'll definitely implement most of them the next time I buy cards.

Hey, nice casual budget version of Tuvasa. You have overall good card sense on a budget, but the manabase looks neglected compared to the rest of the deck.

Vanishing and new Robe of Stars can be powerful repeatable protection for Tuvasa since phasing also affects all auras or equipment attached to Tuvasa including Vanishing or Robe. Phasing saves Tuvasa and everything attached to her from removal and this kind of protection is really good against board wipes. The wipe will affect all players, but you save Tuvasa and all auras attached to her which all return at your next untap step to attack with a huge Tuvasa where as your opponents may not have creatures.

Whip Silk is a unique aura because it can return itself to your hand from the battlefield for only one mana even at instant speed. This interaction is excellent with enchantresses to draw, having a one drop enchantment to repeatedly cast. Pair Whip with Sigarda's Aid which lets you cast auras at instant speed and Tuvasa can trigger to draw once on each player's turn. Pair Whip with Sanctum Weaver and an enchantress to make Whip a draw engine depending on how much green mana Weaver can make.

Ethereal Armor and Ancestral Mask can help to make Tuvasa huge. The first strike from Ethereal makes Tuvasa literally unblockable and Mask counts all enchantments on the battlefield including opponents. Favor of the Overbeing gives Tuvasa +2/+2 and two good abilities for two mana: flying evasion and vigilance to use her as a big blocker.

Pair Sterling Grove and new Moon-Blessed Cleric with Sun Titan for repeatable enchantment tutors. Titan is versatile repeatable reanimation since he can reanimate Tuvasa or tons of other 3 CMC or less permanents.


Some budget land upgrades to consider:

I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

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

Raging_Squiggle on Does Ruxa work with enchantments?

Whip Silk has been errata’d to grant Reach to the enchanted creature. Bear Umbra grants the triggered ability of untapping lands on attack. Because of this, they will not be affected by Ruxa.

Note an additional ruling for Muraganda Petroglyphs :

3/19/2021 If an effect says that an affected creature “has” or “gains” an ability, Muraganda Petroglyphs won’t apply to that creature because it has gained an ability. If an effect simply says that something is true of an affected creature (such as “target creature can’t be blocked this turn”) then that effect isn’t causing the creature to gain an ability.

If I enchant say Barbtooth Wurm with say Whip Silk or Bear Umbra , does the Wurm still work with Ruxa, Patient Professor ? Or does the Wurm now has an ability?

If you're running Tethmos, you might consider Conviction or Whip Silk to get more value, or Aura Fracture to repeatedly use Rancor for the same purpose. Also, I would dissuade you from using a card advantage- and mana-negative card like Scythe Tiger while Fiery Cannonade is still in the meta - you really can't afford to play that card unless it sticks for a few turns.

jhunter I used to run both in my deck and they were both fun at times! But you have to make some cuts sometimes xD

I have seen Whip Silk before, definitely gonna try it out!! Thanks for the comments!
