Typical UW Dance deck without Teferi; now Teferi three is obviously a no-brainer inclusion but frankly I'm tired of playing him. I added Shimmer Dragon instead bc I wanted an alternate win con as well as to just use an underplayed card. Granted I'm baised as Shimmy D is my favorite card from the Eldraine set. Below are some observations:

CoD. (Cavalier of Dawn) is honestly clutch in so many matches and you may want 1 more or two over Shimmer Dragon. He blows up the oppenent's stuff; he also blows up your own stuff like a casket or other artifacts that no longer provide value (and you get a free 3/3 to boot!) He combos well with time wipe, which allows you to save him, wipe the board, and then play him again to abuse his removal/golem etb effect. Saheeli has also suprisingly put in work. We hardly play any creatures and with cheap artifacts we can reasonably generate chum blockers for extra protection. Even more fun is using Saheeli's -2 to copy things like Shimmer Dragon, CoD, or even Emry. Just remember not to target an artifact with summoning sickness as the copy (of say Emry) will still have summoning sickness!!! Learned that the hard way :/.

Speaking of Emry, she is our secondary value engine and is great for retrieving caskets (and other artifacts) from the grave. I personally like the combo of CoD, blow up my own casket, get a 3/3 golem and then replay casket using Emry to re-remove 3cmc creatures. I also added a single Fae of Wishes to grab things from the sideboard. I'm particularly fond of a late-game Banish into Fable. Grab it with Fae and chances are you bounce at least 2 of the opponent's permaments and get 2 2/2's w/ vigilance!! Realistically though, you are grabbing Stonecoil Serpent, another Time Wipe or Manse if you are having trouble finding thiem, or things like Veto or Spyglass. However, Fae is a one of and it feels bad when you accidentally bin it with an Emry etb trigger :p.
