Creature — Human Soldier
Heroic -- Whenever you cast a spell that targets Battlewise Hoplite, put a +1/+1 counter on Battlewise Hoplite, then scry 1. (To scry 1, look at the top card of your library, then you may put that card on the bottom of your library.)

hejtmane, like I said, I'm not worried about my casual play: doing slow sh_t with myself and my broke friends. They're presenting so many curve-shattering creatures in this set, I'm worried. Neheb, Storrev, Feather, Ilharg, Vitu-Ghazi, Tomik, Flux Channeler, Evolution Sage, even Tenth District Legionnaire is a strictly better, color shifted Battlewise Hoplite

@Peoyogon thank you so much for the nice words! I take a lot of pride in making this page pretty for everyone :) I certainly feel PDH is growing steadily and that the resources we make are having a big impact. Between the Compendium, Primer, and our discord (link in description) I've seen hundreds of new faces in the community.

I see you have a very low mana curve and you are running very few creatures; I respect that. Did you consider creatures with Bestow? As auras they trigger Battlewise Hoplite but can also be deployed as blockers if needed. Is the Bestow cost too high?

I would recommend 4 Battlewise Hoplite 4 Favored Hoplite 4 Hero of Iroas 4 Eidolon of Countless Battlesand perhaps some Phalanx Leader or Vanguard of Brimaz as for enchantments, Ethereal Armor and Spirit Mantle are must haves. Daybreak Coronet may cost a bit more but it'll be worth a shot. Lastly, trim down the 1 ofs, focus on a few specific good cards and have more of them. Oh and non-aura enchantments are sort of unnessecary. Good start though! :)

Ordeal of Heliod is really just a bad card for modern. It is outclassed for example by Daybreak Coronet ... You should explore more for what enchantments there are since there are much better ones. I know that Daybreak Coronet is expensive but it could also be a solid replacement for your Hopeful Eidolon.
Also enchantment creatures are weak by themselves, but then expensive for a bestow. IMO it would be better to have more solid heroic creatures and stronger enchantments rather than trying to have some that do both...
Spirit Mantle offers a lot of good value against other aggro or creature decks

Gods Willing is an excellent protection card. Splashing blue for this sort of deck is also great since you get Battlewise Hoplite , and an Ojutai's Command could be spicy. Akroan Skyguard has some natural evasion as well. You may want to consider Ajani's Presence , Selfless Spirit, or green for Heroic Intervention to dodge wrath effects.

you could go the route of making nissa as big as possible, then dropping a huge creature every turn. that would entail eldrazi's and a lot of mana ramping.
a second option would be to try and scry as often as possible. that way you can turn your deck into a very specific combo deck with intricate interactions that you can replicate relatively consistently. i didn't quite filter for color, but here are some suggestions to get your mind going: Aqueous Form Battlewise Hoplite Catacomb Sifter Contraband Kingpin Curator of Mysteries Eyes of the Watcher Flamespeaker Adept Jace's Sanctum Knowledge and Power Lifecrafter's Bestiary Prescient Chimera Prognostic Sphinx Retreat to Coralhelm

Cool deck, +1. I'm just starting out with Azorius so I'm quite ignorant, however if this were my deck I'd customize it by swapping out all the Battlewise Hoplites for one more each of the Phalanx Leaders, Akroan Skyguards and Fabled Heros.
I'd also swap out an Island and a Plains for Temple of Enlightenments, which not only helps me to have the correct colored Mana when I need it but also has Scry 1 (Glacial Fortress is cool too but it costs a bit and I love how your deck is ultra-budget).
