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.)
Battlewise Hoplite Discussion

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...
Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris
Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy
Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons
Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion
Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!
Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus
King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas
That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.
Here are what I've made:
The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.
The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.
The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.
I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.
Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

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.
