Dictate of Heliod Discussion

Other cards in white that deal damage to you are rare, but some colorless cards exist for the job, here all of the ones that come to mind:

The white part of the Odyssey utility threshold lands: Nomad Stadium

Grand Coliseum and City of Brass

Mana Vault and Mana Crypt are even better than usual here!

Staff of Nin xDD to deal damage to you!

Ankh of Mishra would be amazing!

Off of that staff one I though of Blasting Station ... there is some infinite combo there, right?

Jinxed Idol might not be so jinxed after all!

Ancient Tomb is amazing as well.

That is all I have for that... now for some finishers once you have the life/token engine going!

Well of Lost Dreams / Mentor of the Meek ? They would do a fair amount of work in terms of drawing.

Felidar Sovereign / Archangel of Thune - normal lifegain shenanigans.

Jazal Goldmane / Cathars' Crusade / Coat of Arms / Mirror Entity / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - normal token shenanigans.

Anointed Procession for more fun?

Divine Visitation too...

Ashnod's Altar / Phyrexian Altar would be good value

Slate of Ancestry on that note.

That's all I got... other than random anthem effects like Dictate of Heliod , but that would be too weak IMO.

Tainted Sigil , Entrapment Maneuver , Secure the Wastes , Accursed Witch  Flip maybe.

If your guys ever need to block or anything you can get a toughness booster that will also make them worth more life when you eat them. Dictate of Heliod , Castle , Spear of Heliod

You can't do anything without mana. I would take out cards for 3 more lands and 2 more ramp. Unless you already own it i would take out the most expensive cards because this is a high dollar deck and it really doesn't need to be.

If you want to yell stuff at the table I will GIVE you a cheap card today at Heroes. Do a Yugi-oh impression, stand up and say "You've activated my TRAP CARD". Needlebite Trap . 7 CMC but you can cast it for 1.

If you can tutor for anything you almost can't find a better combo than Tree of Perdition , graveyard recursion and your boss saccing the tree to gain life equal to whatever your target used to have. Diabolic Tutor should be here just because this deck has like 5 combo pieces it could look for.

I think Yeva, Nature's Herald would be a good addition to this deck. Dictate of Heliod might also come in handy. Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison as well as Crawlspace makes it even more difficult to attack you. You want to keep Monarch at all costs with this deck, since it is perfect card draw, so Regal Behemoth and Entourage of Trest will make that happen. Nylea, God of the Hunt and Karametra, God of Harvests are additions worth considering in this deck. Explosive Vegetation , Peregrination , Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are ideal ramp.

I hope this helps!

Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a fun angel to have, and she's a great mana sink. I almost like Zendikar Resurgent more than Mirari's Wake for the card draw, but if you can run both, do it.

I don't like Dictate of Heliod in here. Most of your creatures are already so big that giving them all another +2/+2 on a static effect isn't going to help you that much more. I think the slot would be better used for card draw, something like Rites of Flourishing or Elemental Bond , or the aforementioned Zendikar Resurgent . You should probably squeeze in more card draw, too.

Cards I would cut here are Caged Sun , which is not so good in a three-color deck, Darksteel Ingot , and Pyramid of the Pantheon (man that card is horrible, and it keeps popping up in your lists!). Instead, I'd run Selesnya Signet , Gruul Signet , and Boros Signet . Your land count is too low, as well. You probably need to run 37 as a general rule to stay consistent in your draws and opening hands.

Not really in line with your small creature theme and will most likely draw some hate but Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is a beast in my Odric deck. Same with Oketra the True . A bit spendy but Emeria, The Sky Ruin is great as well. Triumph of Gerrard goes well with Odric's plans. Spear of Heliod , Always Watching , Dictate of Heliod , Cathars' Crusade , Light from Within ...and maybe even Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite .

I would recommend Anointed Procession to help speed up your token generation, and would maybe run one less Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and replace it with a Dictate of Heliod to give your tokens a better boost. I also don't recommend playing Sorin Markov in this format because he is too overcosted for effects that don't benefit your deck's strategy, and although halving your opponent's life can be nice, by the time you reach turn six, they should be relatively close to dead and it literally won't matter. I would also recommend either running another Path to Exile over a third Fatal Push so that your removal is a little more consistent. Finally, I'd say run another Lingering Souls over the third Cartel Aristocrat , just because the flyers give you more of an advantage than a 2/2 on the ground.

Hanweir is awesome, I like it better than hall of the bandit since that one comes in tapped. Also that 3 life adds up if you end up tapping it a few times. As you mention an anthem card or 2 could be a good idea. I have found that the +1/+1 anthems are typically underwhelming, so I would stick with things that give atleast 2 power with cards like Dictate of Heliod, Glory of Warfare, or even Adriana, Captain of the Guard which the more I think about, I think I really like for this deck. All in all I think the deck is looking pretty solid though, so we are down to some pretty nitpicky choices.
