My Enduring Ideal deck runs Hive Mind. Lol. I'll force Enduring Ideal on to my opponents (who more often than not or not running Enchantment decks). You don't want Sigil of the Empty Throne. Sigil only works when you actually play the enchantment, not when you just pop one on to the battlefield.

Turn 1 with Enduring Ideal ALWAYS get Dovescape.
Turn 2 Solitary Confinement OR Enchanted Evening.
Turn 3 Form of the Dragon
Turn 4
Turn 5
Turn 6
Turn 7 You win.

Enduring Ideal can't combo with Mirror Sheen. It does not target anything.
A card like Yavimaya Enchantress is great with this deck if you have Enchanted Evening in it. Ancestral Mask is also a great addition.
Before playing the epic card, when you have Enchanted Evening out, try Wrap in Vigor and then Tranquility or Leave No Trace.

The best of the Epic spells, a sadly unimpressive cycle considering how awesome they could have been.

"Haha, you can't play any more spells this game? That's a terrible card!"
*Ideal searches up Form of the Dragon, then Mystic Decree*
"...good game."

More likely, they won't just say "good game", they'll say "Lava Axe targeting you... good game"

And what's with everyone giving love to Enchanted Evening? Why the heck do you care that permanents are enchantments? Doesn't do anything for Ideal.

As for you people with a blanket rule of "First turn always pull...Sterling Grove, Dovescape, etc."... There is no rule about your first turn except that on the first turn, you react to what's on the board and make sure you get a second turn. That could mean an Oblivion Ring or a Faith's Fetters or Meishin, the Mind Cage. Then probably a Zur's Weirding so you can see your opponent's hand and make sure they can't kill you when you pull Form of the Dragon.

Seriously, ... (see all)

Okay this would be awesome as the core to an all enchantment deck. About 45 cards in size running 4 of these. First priorty is to cast this as fast as possible, I recomand Dark Ritual and Remote Farm. Mulligan to make sure you have a good start hand. Then first thing you search is forSterling Grove. Turn two of Epic pull out a second Sterling Grove. 3: get Everlasting Torment. 4: pull out Transcendence at this point you can't die except by deck fliping or by a card that destroys all enchantments in play. 5: VERY IMPORANT Dragon Appeasement after all you can't play spells so haveing enchanments in hand aren't going to help you anymore. 6,7,8,9: pull out your 4 copies of Necra Sanctuary for the win. If you want run other fun enchanments in mass like Hondens. Just make sure you have 4copies of your early enchaments incase you accidentl... (see all)

What about Paradox Haze to speed things up?

Dragon Roost and Crucible of Fire, It's not like you'll be needing those lands for anything else. May as well get an 8/8 dragon or two every turn.

Paradox Haze as far as I've seen is by far most effective, especially in a duel. Dovescape is a popular choice and usually followed up with Mind Cage. Yeah, yeah, so on, whatever.

I think this is the silliest epic spell because you build a deck around a card that cost 7 mana.... a narrow, curve ball, deck. Anyone packing answers, has plenty of time to rock your world.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
