Eidolon of Countless Battles Discussion

Eidolon of Countless Battles is pretty damn good. It's an allstar in my deck! I run Authority of the Consuls in addition to Blind Obedience. It's redundant but it's 1 mana draw a card basically. Plus Authority's lifegain feels real good.

One card you NEED is Leyline of Anticipation. As soon as mine lands on the table, I rarely play cards on my turn. With removal and other taxing/hatebear enchantments, you can keep things a lot more difficult for your opponents. It also turns Enlightened Tutor into a Mystical Tutor, basically. Both of which are cards I strongly suggest obtaining too. One of my OTHER favorite things about leyline is it lets you net creatures to block with at your own pace from cards like sigil or ajani's chosen.

Our lists differ a little, but I like yours! The above statement about getting creatures at optimal times also applies to the Monastery Mentor you're considering, which in turn makes Eidolon of Countless battles that much better ;)

SynergyBuild, I agree with Return to Dust. If I were to add any removal spells it would most likely be spot removal at instant speed, but for casual play, if anyone were in the need of mass removal then Cleansing Meditation would fit the bill for that. It has its pros and cons and it shouldn’t be too difficult to hit threshold. Eidolon of Countless Battles would be a casualty as an aura, of course, but he’ll return as a fatty of his own at least.

Starsky2814 & toestie, because it does actually destroy our enchantments, then returns them back if we have threshold, you can reattach auras, flicker effects like Sage's Reverie, but sadly Eidolon of Countless Battles won't stay an Aura if it was, and some other minor downnsides. I like the card a fair bit, however since it isn't an instant and doesn't hit artifacts, cards like Return to Dust are generally better in my opinion, if you need more answers.

I don't like Toothy, Imaginary Friend, Ravenous Slime, Loyal Unicorn, Dismantling Blow because they're all kind of off-theme and not that powerful without more synergy.

Eidolon of Rhetoric seems a bit too techy, even with the enchantment creature tag.

Training Grounds doesn't combo with bestow.

Myth Unbound - I don't think this is very good without Partner commanders.

I'd consider:

Bident of Thassa, since it's a mostly better Coastal Piracy.

Satyr Enchanter, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Sage's Reverie, Silhana Ledgewalker, Indrik Umbra

well, you already have Eidolon of Countless Battles, (I should've looked) although it is still good without cheating it out as an aura.

I don't know how the rule works, but can you search for Hypnotic Siren or Eidolon of Countless Battles as enchantments with CMC 3 or less and put them on to the battlefield as an aura without paying the bestow cost? If you can, it's a really powerful effect (particularly the siren)

I really like your deck, but here are some things I noticed. Steel of the Godhead seems a little weak as you already have unblockable, so i'd go for Hyena Umbra to help survive removal or Daybreak Coronet if you want the lifelink.

Also Blackblade Reforged and Sword of the Animist can be strong but don't really align with your aura based strategy. Maybe Teferi's Protection, Eidolon of Countless Battles, or Kor Spiritdancer would offer better damage, protection, and back-up voltron.

Lastly, you do have access to some awesome aura removal: you could put in Darksteel Mutation, Ice Cage, or Encrust to remove trouble some abilities or creatures when you go for the big all out one-shot swing.

P.S. Hatred could also be a one-shot insta kill.

Hope these ideas help, again I really like the deck.
