Dictate of Heliod Discussion

UnlikelyParadox on Oketra the True

2 weeks ago

So, you ask for more warrior tribal?

Steward of Solidarity, Take Up Arms

...Damn, you're right, there isn't much warrior tribal.There is, however, anthem tribal:

Call for Unity, Builder's Blessing, and/or Castle (because Oketra makes warriors with Vigilance), Crescendo of War, Dictate of Heliod, Glorious Anthem, Honor of the Pure, Marshal's Anthem, Path of Bravery, Spear of Heliod, and Valor in Akros

Non-Anthem anthem effects: (abilities) Brave the Sands, Heliod, God of the Sun? (maybe? He makes Clerics for cheap late game, and with the anthem effects, they turn out to be like 4 mana 9/9s with Vigilance.), True Conviction (AUTO INCLUDE IN ANY WHITE WIDE DECK EVER)

shaftdiggity: Thank you for the ideas!

I've tested Dictate of Heliod and I found it to be too slow. Even with flash it's decent but I'd rather have True Conviction.

You are spot on with Catastrophe and Teferi's Protection though. They are both must haves.

It's funny, but I forgot about Captain's Claws for your other ally decks, but remembered it now, but it would be decent here. With so many tokens, Anointed Procession is a must. adding the soul sisters could help with the life-gain sub-theme you have going. Dictate of Heliod and True Conviction could swell the cat team. Catastrophe could be a decent add, as it has cat in the name, but could also help you nuke lands if you have an advantaged board state. The new Teferi's Protection is a must as well.

CaptainGalvanic on What does white bring to ...

White offers some good anthems, like Glory of Warfare, Dictate of Heliod, Tempt with Glory, and Campaign of Vengeance to name a few.

I like the aristocrat/Lifegain substrategy, and since some vampires get extra value from Humans dying, I think there may be room for some high value Humans, such as Cartel Aristocrat, Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Odric, Master Tactician, and Knight Exemplar (for protecting Edgar from removal before he hits the field). Since not enough vampires have lifelink, Angelic Skirmisher could also be used in some builds.

As for Athreos, I'm kind of on the fence. He has awesome value with aristocrats, but he isn't a vampire, he is unlikely to do much for the first few turns he is on the board (other than make you a target), and half of your creatures won't get anything off of his ability, because they are tokens. Only time will tell, but for now, I'm using his slot to complete the combo with Ashnod's Altar, Deathrender, and Heirloom Blade ([Heirloom Blade] is shown here: (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=433293)).

DaringApprentice on Enchantress's Evening

You make a good point about nonbasic lands, but I've seen very little land destruction in my playgroups. If I do, I'll definitely adjust as needed. I'm not too worried about getting Enchanted Evening and Starfield of Nyx out together since it's a 98-card deck, but if that starts to come up, then I would definitely consider Dictate of Heliod.

I really like a lot of the words cycle cards, but Words of Wilding and Words of Worship don't seem too impactful in Commander. Words of Wind seems like it could be great in this deck, though, especially since it could let me return enchantments to my hand for more cast/enter the battlefield triggers. I think I'll find a place for it in the deck! Thanks again!

Not sure why it took me so long to come take a look at this - but well done. This looks incredibly fun to play, and has such a unique combination of enchantments! I like the enchantress and Kydele synergy, but wonder if there are a few more things you could add to ensure that doesn't come back to bite you by increasing turnover. Maybe something like Mirri's Guile or Exploration to help streamline the cards you get - maybe even Abundance. Also, some insurance on the hand size. I think Venser's Journal could work especially well. You could also have something like Words of Wind make that combo add to the control you have set up.
The land base is pretty susceptible to things like Ruination and Blood Moon. Having some recursion might help, or just swapping for more basics.
Ishai might not be as effective with some of the control out, since you'll limit opponents' spell casting, but I think the trade off is worth it.
Eon Hub, while it would ruin some things, also has potential if you wanted to leverage more cumulative upkeep cards in the deck. I also think Stasis could fit here, with some of the untap cards you have for yourself.
If there is a goal to get Starfield of Nyx to make creatures, something like Asceticism might help give some extra insurance. Also, Dictate of Heliod or Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite might help if you want to get Enchanted Evening out at the same time, so you don't have to worry about wiping your lands.
Finally, I saw you had multiplayer tagged. Having cards that let you move enchantments might help out. I can only think of Enchantment Alteration and Aura Graft off the top of my head, but even Copy Enchantment could help get a curse on more than one opponent.

zoefzoef83 on Budget Naya Infinite Tokens

3 months ago

Nice deck! Maybe a replacement you can make is 2 Cathars' Crusade for either 2 Banishing Light or 2 Dictate of Heliod i know it will take your deck over 30 in price. But whit the infinite token's all your creatures and token's also grow infinite.
