This deck, rarely seen at all in tournament or casual play, will surprise those opponents not prepared with enchantment destruction. This is an enchantress deck which I have played with for many years. It is the only deck that can be succesfully played with 80 cards, at least the blue+green combo anyway. The premise of the deck revolves around the enchantress cards; Verudan Enchantress, Yavimaya Enchantress

, and Enchantress’s Presence. I have made many variations of the Enchantress deck; this one revolves around the blue+green combination.

get +1/+1 for each enchantment in play, no need to explain that. This might not seem like anything yet, but throw in Words Of Wind (whenever you draw a card this turn, you may pay 1, if you do each player returns a permanent to their hand) it’s simple to see where I'm going with this – return your enchantments to your hand so you can play them again while also your opponent has to return his cards. Here is the breakdown of the deck.
