Comments/Notes:
First out of the block is the Mono-W deck and we're already off to a rocky start since the Commander isn't even a Legendary Creature. It does flip into one though and for the most part my playgroup has been OK with it (except for one player who insists I swap it out). For that reason, Rune-Tail is in the deck, who is a much more obnoxious Commander than Kitsune Mystic could ever be. The plan here is to get Mystic flipped as soon as possible, and then use the Aura-moving ability to keep important creatures alive and opponent's creatures out of the way. Has a surprising win percentage for what is a very casual deck. Lots of fun especially when you're swinging with an Angel token that has 9 auras on it :)

Sorry that this won't be anywhere near as comprehensive as my Omnath post, partially because I simply don't have as much to say nor as much experience with enchantress decks.

There is one thing I will say without question: this deck seems not particularly skilled at actually closing out the game. Specifically I think the deck could do with some powerful aura targets. Coming to mind at first are Fabled Hero, Ghostblade Eidolon, Heavenly Blademaster, Odric, Lunarch Marshall, Oketra, the True, or Zetalpa.

If you have a few Snow Plains, Demotion is strictly worse than Gelid Shackles. Depending on whether your playgroup takes offense to political plays, with Shackles you can have the following scenario:
[Opponent]: enter combat
[You]: if I let that attack, will it come at me or my 'walker?
[Opponent]: fine, no

So it's almost like Vow of Wildness that also encourages attacking because it's not going to be useful as a blocker or utility creature (other than static or triggered abilities). But only as long as your opponent cooperates. At some point they may decide to stop making bargains, or even LIE to your face.
