Deck of the Day – Legacy Enchantress

We are in this lame-duck period where Standard is about to rotate and Modern is about to get a heavy shakeup on the banned list. Have no fear, Magic players, Legacy is here!

I’m going to try to focus on some of the coolest decks in Legacy, especially those that do something completely different than Modern or Standard.

Argothian Enchantress and Enchantress’s Presence are the backbone of the Enchantress deck. With either in play, each enchantment (your deck is completely full of them) will net you an additional card. They also scale, so eventually you will be drawing 4+ cards per 1 mana you spend on your enchantments.

With great enchantment mana ramp, Wild Growth and Utopia Sprawl add to your strategy without even costing you a mana investment. The land you enchant can be tapped immediately, so it’s almost like granting haste.

You have all the tools to help keep you alive, especially in a format like Legacy. Elephant Grass stops many decks in their tracks, and Solitary Confinement is fairly easy to keep around to make sure you’re staying around.

In order to win the game, you have a couple options. Rest in Peace is already a solid Legacy card, invalidating many strategies in the format while also not hurting you at all. With Rest in Peace in play, Helm of Obedience will deck your opponent.

You can also generate tons of mana with all of your enchantments and use Serra’s Sanctum(s) to hard cast Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Winning from there is pretty academic!

This deck is often championed by esteemed deck builder and Platinum Pro Andrew Cuneo, and is a total blast to play!
