It is hard for me to call this the enchantment deck instead of the enchantress deck. Let’s start by looking at the official decklist and then we can start picking it apart and get some ideas on how we will upgrade it.
Designer: Wizards of the Coast
This deck looks solid. Starting with all the possible commanders.
They all care about enchantments, they actually work together fairly well. Estrid, the Masked wants to throw masks on other creatures so she can start untapping all your creatures, this works well with Kestia. Kestia, the Cultivator draws cards for attacking with enchanted and enchantment creatures, which that can then be untapped with Estrid. Tuvasa the Sunlit just wants you to have enchantments and draws cards for the first enchantment you cast each time, this screams voltron. Overall this deck seems focused and looks to be one of the better “out of the box” decks. If you are looking for a deck to open and just play I think this would be a good buy. Now let me take you down how I would upgrade this deck.
I want to turn you to the Theros block, in particular the gods of the Theros block. They are powerful creatures in their own right but they are also enchantments.
There is more from those sets than just the gods and it is all gold. There is also legendary creatures from commander 2016 that are from the plane of Theros but not from the actual set.
- Courser of Kruphix
- Archetype of Endurance
- Plea for Guidance
- Elspeth, Sun’s Champion
- Thrasios, Triton Hero
- Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix
Now the direction I want to ultimately take the deck is full enchantress. I just want to highlight a few.
- Argothian Enchantress
- Femeref Enchantress
- Verduran Enchantress
- Eidolon of Blossoms
- Enchantress’s Presence
One thing that every deck needs is ramp. We have a good amount of enchantment based ramp.
Let’s take a look at what I have cooked up for this decklist.
Designer: Andy Bentley
I decided to run Kestia because her ability is closer to where I wanted the deck. I could have used Tuvasa, because they are “technically” an enchantress, but i didn’t want to go the voltron route. Feedback is always appreciate in the comments or show me how you’d build the deck.
