With the growing number of enchantment creatures and use of other enchantments is serras sanctum a viable one of like tolarian academy? i have seen decks with as low as six to eight artifacts run academy so would a deck with say four spirit of the lab one stony silence one energy flux and maybe a rest in peace or seal of removal or moat or aegis of the gods or maybe some leylines be enough to warrant a serras sanctum? something like the new dance magic dance deck could use it to have that extra mana for an end of turn angel or fact while still leavin mana up to counter a spell? what are your guys thoughts and how many enchantments are needed to make running one or more serras sanctum worth while?

Number of enchantments is only one aspect: you also need them to have sufficiently low mana cost. There are tons of cheap artifacts; less so with useful enchantments. On turn 1, unless you started the game with multiple Leylines, Serra's Sanctum is almost always worse than Plains. By the time you have a bunch of enchantments out like Energy Flux or Moat, you don't need a bunch of white mana.

Heliod is certainly a strong finisher for some kind of Serra's Sanctum deck where every guy you make gets more mana for you. I'm not sure if you can get there reasonably, however. There is a modern mono white prison enchantment deck that you could try to model after, with Ghostly Prisons and such to stop attacks.

I would probably start with this and see if I could build on it.

4 leyline
4 Spirit of the labyrinth
4 Stony silence
4 Rest in peace
4 Aegis of the gods
4 Eidolon of Rhetoric
X Heliod

1 Mox pearl
1 Black lotus
4 Serras sanctum
4 Wastelands
1 Stripmine
X plains

like tolarian academy?

It's not just the cheapness of the artifacts, it's also the color academy produces.  What broken white things are you going to synergize?
