Time to Bounce

Written by LegitMTG Staff on . Posted in Competitive Magic, Legacy

So you like drawing a ton of cards, want to crush blue decks, like to do unfair things that leave a look of confusion and frustration on your opponent’s face, and enjoy a good ol’ Upheaval every now and then. Maybe you should be playing U/G Enchantress, which does all of those things. I should mention Andrew Cuneo is a genius. As soon as I saw his Top 8 list from the MOCS (Magic Online Championship), I was instantly in love. I have been a fan of Enchantress decks since I started playing Legacy.

The point of this deck is to get Words of Wind going and bounce all of your opponent’s permanents. Either they concede or you win by attacking with Cloud of Faeries and Eternal Witnesses while keeping them completely locked with Mindbreak Trap as backup. You do this by having at least two Enchantress effects in play, two lands that can tap for at least five mana because of Wild Growths and Utopia Sprawls, Words of Wind, and Cloud of Faeries.

You now will have two mana in your pool and can repeat this process until your opponent has no permanents in play. If your two lands produce more than five mana then you will net mana with each loop. The same applies if you have more Enchantress effects in play, letting you draw cards while containing the combo.

The only problem with attacking as a win condition is it’s very time consuming, which can make it difficult to finish in time if it reaches Game 3. This led to the addition of a Living Wish package that was featured in the list Chris Andersen used to Top 8 SCG Cincinnati in October. Living Wish gives you access to Gaddock Teeg, Harmonic Sliver and a quick win via casting Emrakul, the Aeons Torn if you are stretched on time.

My updated list takes out Living Wish but includes a Gatecrash card:

Blind Obedience has continually impressed. It gains you life against the decks that are trying to kill you quickly, it makes Sneak Attack a beatable card, and it slows down Goblins. Did I mention it’s a win condition? Once you have Words of Wind going, Blind Obedience can kill your opponent very quickly in one turn instead of having to attack with 1/1s and 2/1s. Too many times, I have had Living Wish in my opening hand and felt like I was starting on a mull to six. This is a kill condition that still draws you a card when you play it.

Chris Andersen recommended that I give Cloudstone Curio a try. Wow, this card. If you have an Enchantress effect in play, it makes drawing your deck very easy. And the cycle ability on Cloud of Faeries becomes surprising relevant when you can play Eternal Witness and bring it back, cycle it, play a different Cloud of Faeries to bounce Eternal Witness and repeat if you don’t have an Enchantress effect in play.

Inside the Matchups

This deck has a favorable matchup against almost all the blue decks, a fine Jund Matchup, and can hang with most of the combo decks. A few tips are:

  1. Mulligan very aggressively. If you don’t have a hand that has an Enchantress effect, the hand is very rarely worth keeping.
  2. If you have Argothian Enchantress in your hand and lands to cast it, you’re better off saving your Wild Growths and Utopia Sprawls until after it is in play so you can get more cards out of them.
  3. Don’t waste your Green Sun’s Zeniths. If against a grindy deck like Stoneblade or BUG, it’s often better waiting until Turn 3 for Enchantress’s Presence or Zenith for two rather than using it early to ramp you with Dryad Arbor. One turn won’t matter much.

The below should help you with you side boarding decisions (I side out a Forest on the draw against almost everyone), but don’t copy it exactly because not all of your opponents will have the same cards in their decks.

Jund

This matchup feels pretty close. Liliana of the Veil is by far the scariest card because it can make you sacrifice your Argothian Enchantresses, but they also have cards that don’t do much like Punishing Fire and Lightning Bolt. After side boarding, I feel very favored because Leyline of Sanctity shuts down the Liliana edict, Thoughtseize and Hymn to Tourach.

+4 Leyline of Sanctity
-2 Carpet of Flowers, -1 Seal of Primordium, -1 Wild Growth

Esper Stoneblade

You have to almost try to lose in this matchup. They are a slow deck and most of their cards don’t do anything. Just wait for the look on your opponent’s face when you cast Carpet of Flowers.

+1 Carpet of Flowers, +1 Gaddock Teeg, +1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor, +1 Harmonic Sliver
-4 Elephant Grass

Sneak and Show

Elephant Grass means they have to kill you with Emrakul; Seal of Removal means they must have Sneak Attack; and Blind Obedience pretty much seals the deal. It’s not as good of a matchup as other blue decks but I’m not upset when getting paired against it.

+1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor, +1 Ensnaring Bridge, +1 Seal of Primordium
-1 Green Sun’s Zenith, -1 Cloudstone Curio, -1 Wild Growth

Show and Tell decks

These are much worse decks to face than Sneak Attack. You can get a lot of Game 1 when they are on the cheat-in-an-Emrakul plan, but Games 2 and 3 will take a little more work. I’ve been about 50/50 against it.

+1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor, +1 Ensnaring Bridge, +1 Seal of Primordium
-1 Green Sun’s Zenith, -1 Cloudstone Curio, -1 Wild Growth

Goblin Charbelcher

Game 1 is a tossup, but after sideboarding we have access to Leyline of Sanctity and Mindbreak Trap as well as Gaddock Teeg. It feels good when your opponent makes 16 goblins and you just bounce them all.

+4 Leyline of Sanctity, +3 Mindbreak Trap, +1 Gaddock Teeg
-2 Carpet of Flowers, -1 Cloudstone Curio, -2 Green Sun’s Zenith, -1 Forest, -1 Seal of Primordium, -1 Cloud of Faeries

Storm

This is a bad matchup in Game 1, but it’s pretty favorable after sideboard. Leyline of Sanctity slows them down a lot and gives you time for your combo. Decks like these are the reasons I like having a way to kill besides beating down over multiple turns.

+4 Leyline of Sanctity, +3 Mindbreak Trap, +1 Gaddock Teeg
-2 Carpet of Flowers, -1 Cloudstone Curio, -2 Elephant Grass, -1 Forest, -1 Seal of Primordium, -1 Cloud of Faeries

Goblins

This is the worst matchup mainly because of Rishadan Port followed by a quick block. Don’t be afraid to Time Walk yourself by throwing a Dryad Arbor in front of a Goblin Lackey. I have a winning record against this deck but it never feels easy.

+1 Dueling Grounds, +1 Seal of Primordium
-2 Carpet of Flowers

BUG

Most of these decks aren’t running a lot of Lilianas anymore, which was the only card they we cared about. They don’t have a quick enough clock, so even though they have Hymn to Tourachs and Thoughseizes, it’s usually not enough. If you resolve an Enchantress, the game pulls away quickly.

+1 Harmonic Sliver, +1 Carpet of Flowers, +1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
-2 Elephant Grass, -1 Wild Growth

RUG Delver

You have a great matchup here. Elephant Grass slows them down a lot because they rarely have enough lands to attack through it while progressing their board state. You can Time Walk them with Seal of Removal pretty easily.

+1 Carpet of Flowers, +1 Scavenging Ooze
-1 Seal of Primordium, -1 Cloudstone Curio

U/W Miracles

Your best matchup. They have no clock at all. Once you get an Enchantress effect in play it doesn’t take long to win even if they have Counterbalance plus Sensei’s Divining Top.

+1 Carpet of Flowers, +1 Jace, the Mind Sculptor, +1 Harmonic Sliver, +1 Seal of Primordium
-4 Elephant Grass

Give this deck a try at the next Legacy tournament you play in — you might be surprised by just how fun it is.

Happy bouncing,
