Obligatory Shield of the Oversoul.

I like how this card is suited for enchantments without directly saying it. Your auras are cheaper, so you prevent mana disadvantage, and removal spells are more expensive, which prevents card disadvantage. Beautiful.

Perfect design. And art.

Another straightforward creature that has more interactions than can be seen at first glance. I wonder if any loops can be made with that cost-reducer?

I like this because it has some removal protection but it isn't another hexproof creature

@Vedalken_Arbiter @ SocialExperiment: all aura spells target the permanent or player they're enchanting when you cast the enchantment card. See Rule 114.1b It's in their full rules text, which they probably should have kept as reminder text because people forget this a lot. Yes, Oblivion Ring and similar cards (e.g, Journey to Nowhere and Exclusion Ritual) don't target as spells but as permanents, but they're not auras.

This is such a great card. I love enchantment decks. They can be really powerful despite the card disadvantage of auras, and cards like this really help.

This card is stupid good. Obligatory Mythic Proportions and Eldrazi Con-BLEEP-ion.

Does this remind anyone of the Lifealope from Romantically Apocalyptic?

Eidolon of Countless Battles. +2/+2 (at least!) for just WhiteWhite.

Yes, because Auras that don't target as they cast are the ones like Oblivion Ring, which use triggered abilities (and isn't actually an Aura at all, because Oblivion Ring would self destruct if it was). "Enchant creature/permanent" Auras would get the reduced cost.

Does the timing allow for aura costs to be reduced? Do Aura's target as they cast?

It's alright. Decent utility creature.
