just saw a great card that can go in here. Celestial Mantle

Flicker or blink effects can work very well to defend Bruna too. eg:

Aquamoeba can help you discard all your auras so you can equip them for free. So can Cephalid Inkshrouder.

If you want to discard and gain something in return (you greedy git) you have things like these:

These are but mere suggestions for stuff you may want to consider!

Serra Ascendant boost your 1 mana curve, has lifelink and gets big with flying by mid game with a lifegain deck. A nice defensive wall is Gift of Immortality + Kami of False Hope. dont declare blockers, sacrifice Kami, all combat damage is negated, kami comes back, then opponent ends turn and gift of immortality goes back on kami. rinse and repeat

or Guardian of the Gateless + Spirit Mantle and have it block all the things.

want a win con? Celestial Mantle on anything that can hit, Felidar Sovereign.

Cut: Repercussion , Jaya Ballard

Maybe cut: Archetype of Aggression , Hero of Bladehold , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Furnace of Rath ,

Double check what Sun Titan can get. I suspect most of your CMC 3 or less things are instants or mana ramp that won't be destroyed in general.

Need to Add: Land Tax , Master Warcraft , Iroas, God of Victory , both scry lands,

Consider adding: Sphere of Safety , Celestial Mantle , Enlightened Tutor , Worship , Sword of the Animist

With all this life gain, it’s fun to drain your opponents by paying Vizkopa Guildmage second ability multiple times.

Ooh Beacon of Immortality , And Celestial Mantle !

Final Parting might be good since you have a good reanimation suite.

Also, as a contoll-y deck, you should put down Torment of Hailfire and Insurrection in the Maybeboard for sure. Things like Comet Storm can be good finishers too. Vicious Shadows might be a win-con as well.

If you need extra pillow fort goodness there is always Koskun Falls . Wall of Shadows is like a worse Fog Bank but it can be a good blocker (along with Darksteel Myr , perhaps). There is also Queen Marchesa but the's quite expensive indeed. Silent Arbiter might be good too.

You might want to replace a single-target removal spell or two for boardwipes. I think you'll want an above-average number in a deck like this. Also, you're low on artifact and enchantment removal so perhaps Crush Contraband and others are worth considering for future updates. Cleansing Nova is dropping in price.

I'm trying to think of a reliable way to gain life but there aren't a ton of good, reliable life-gainers that don't rely on mass Lifelink or creatures in general (like Celestial Mantle or Loxodon Warhammer ) or aren't Exquisite Blood . Might not be necessary but it could be helpful in grinding out wins. I suppose playtesting will help.

Were it me, I'd switch Temple Bell out for Read the Bones or Ancient Craving / Ambition's Cost . That is, unless, you like the political stuff you can do with Temple Bell. It's definitely more political than Howling Mine .

Madcookie on Enchanting a creature that’s already …

Yes, because: 1- Darksteel Mutation does not affect bonuses given by other permanents (in this case the +3/+3 from the other aura) and the creature will then be 3/4 artifact insect with indestructible and 2 - whenever it deals damage, Celestial Mantle will trigger and double your life. That is because the double your life clause is not an ability on the creature rather the mantle itself. (If it was worded as "Enchanted creature gains "whenever..." then I believe Darksteel Mutation would overwrite it due to layering rules)

Notes - Gatherer - However, Darksteel Mutation does not overwrite effects that change the enchanted creature’s power or toughness without setting it to a specific value (such as the ones created by Giant Growth or Glorious Anthem). It also won’t overwrite the effect of counters. (2013-10-17)

Hell yeah! Another heroics deck! I have one too but Daxos the Returned commands mine, same idea tho.

Some creatures that I don't see here that could benefit the deck are Celestial Ancient , Danitha Capashen, Paragon Dawnbringer Charioteers , Graceblade Artisan , Lagonna-Band Trailblazer , Sram, Senior Edificer , Wingsteed Rider , Umbra Mystic and my personal favorite Thran Golem .

Some enchantments I really like in my deck are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Divine Favor , Face of Divinity , Griffin Guide , Hope Against Hope , On Serra's Wings Angelic Destiny and Bonds of Faith can go offensive or defensive. You should look into some umbras like Felidar Umbra and Hyena Umbra .

Windborne Charge is a great little pump spell for a good cost. I'm surprised you're not running any enchantment tutors. Crystal Chimes is great graveyard enchantment recursion.

I noticed you have some token generation. Intangible Virtue could be an option. With that said Sigil of the Empty Throne is an excellent card in decks like this.

I realize I've only suggested white cards but that's the only overlapping color our decks share.

Sorry to spam this comment with so much but I got excited. I love the heroic mechanic and I'm glad to see other people utilizing it. A big enchanted +1 from me!
