I have an Oloro deck and I am always trying something new in order to make it more fun and more reliable

Every time I played Humility the table booed at me, and from that point every single 1/1 they have will try to kill me and they will be focusing hard to remove the enchant.

My Oloro deck is a durdle non stax deck so I don't want to be taxing or annoying people, I just want them to let me be (just ignore me)

But.. that never happend so the list must have a lot of pillowforth options and humility was one of them.

Last night I tried switching Humility for Aurification , both have the same cmc, I am surprised by the result and I won one of the games just for that card.

Disclaimer: I know Humility has more raw power

I played Aurification in a 5 man table with 2 aggro players and 2 aggro/control players plus me, I played the card and this happen

1. People didn't booed (they just consider it annoying but not a threat)
2. People stop attacking me and start pointing each other
3. Because of point 2, people started some wars among them
4. I was able to gain some time and save my counterspells and answers for better times
5. They killed each other utill 1 aggro player was in a low life total, the agro control player was at 220 life (yes 220 because he had a huge lifelinker)
6. The huge lifelinker tried to kill me but I chumbplock with Hushwing Gryff
7. The aggro player at low life died first because I had next aGlacial chasm so noone can hurt me

8. In my next turn I got Solemnity and Glacial chasm was at 3 counters
9. I play Venser's journal and I had 5 cards in my hand so from now On I had a soft lock because I will gain more life each turn that I had to pay for the chasm
10. after a couple of turn the last player understood the lock and concede

I loved how the card worked, It was just as I wanted, people didn't see it as a huge threat and it avoid me a lot of damage while pointing people to attack each other

What are your thoughts about this?

I think it's an easy and obvious comparison. Humility says "You know those cool creatures you have, the ones that you are playing this format specifically so you can use? You don't get to play them." Aurafication says "Don't attack me if you want to keep your creatures", synonymous with something like No Mercy or Dread.

Neither of them make for a particularly enjoyable game IMO, but when it comes to the lesser of two evils Aurafication is by far the better choice.

At least nobody really complain very hard about aurification at least not out loud (wich happens with humility)

And... the best thing is that the enchant actually did what I wanted to

1st. People stop attacking me
2dn. People started attacking each other
3rd. People started wars where I wasn't part of it
4th. Nobody asked for an enchant removal for this

This will happen less as time goes by, and people start realizing that they need to kill this to kill you, but at least it doesn't instantly ruin the game.
