I know what most of you are thinking. “No deck should win with more than 60 cards, and how come there are only 3 copies and 2 copies of cards in there?” Well here are the answers. The reason there are more than 60 cards is because I added more land. I found out I came up short on land in the game, so I added some, and everything balanced out. Second of all, there are only a few copies of cards because I cycle through my deck so fast that when everything I want hits the graveyard, I'm set for the game win. And with a larger diversity of enchantments, I have a better chance of controlling the game and putting a fast win in for myself. Here is how it works...

You play to get all of your Enchantresses into play, and use Mind Over Matter

and Furnace of Rath, which enables you to win the game if you have 5 lands in your hand (which you will have because of the drawing out of your deck). This leads to a fast win with the game insured because of the enchantments. Now I know there are many versions of this deck, including cards that make enchantments indestructible, and make them cost less, but this is the version I play with that I found plays most successful for me. Changing this deck around to something that best caters your style of play leads to more match wins and a better understanding of how the deck works and a higher playing level in your game.

If you get worried about control decks beating you out, you need to remember this: Sideboarding = win for you. You can control the tapping of your lands due to Mind Over Matter
