Evangel of Heliod Discussion

lagotripha on Win-ota, (Boros) Unity Squad

I like this idea, but have you considered a soldier tribal subtheme with Preeminent Captain, Catapult Master, Darien, King of Kjeldor, Squad Captain , Stormfront Riders, Assemble the Legion Knight-Captain of Eos etc? It offers another cheat and has decent commander synergy.

On another note, Auratouched Mage with Eldrazi Conscription is a thing, or just Knightly Valor/Commander's Authority.

Lovisa Coldeyes has that warrior synergy. Allies have a few options in Resolute Blademaster and Murasa Pyromancer. Reverent Hoplite and Evangel of Heliod like white devotion. Zealous Conscripts threatens to a combo.

Have fun tinkering with the list.

So I really like this decklist so far and I can see you have put a lot of time into it. Have you tried putting in more humans that make non human tokens? Cards like, Evangel of Heliod, Knight-Captain of Eos, Silverwing Squadron and, Hero of Bladehold could be really strong editions in this catagory.

This deck seems like it is ultra agressive, which I feel Boros and espically Winota want to be but, have you looked at putting a few more devensive cards in the deck? Cards like Frontline Medic, Odric, Master Tactician, Legion's Initiative, and Unbreakable Formation could help to ward off boardwipes and help your creatures get combat damage through. I also think, Angel of Glory's Rise could be a really strong late game finisher after a large chuck of your humans have been killed.

Lastly, you said you are not running a lot of boardwipes but, why specifically did you chose to run Fumigate over cards like Cleansing Nova or Austere Command? I feel like one of the later two sweepers are stronger than Fumigate because of their ability to hit artifacts and enchantments also. Have you considered Martial Coup? 7 mana is a lot for a sweeper but, being left with 5 soldiers that you could use to get 5 Winota triggers the next turn could win you the game on the spot depending on what you draw.

Overall I think you have done a fantastic job so far and I am excited we finally get a true Boros commander!

THB Review:

The only reliable cards from the new sets for our deck are:

Reverent Hoplite which will replace Evangel of Heliod ; though one less white pip will not affect our devotion count by that much the creature type compensates as it will get the benefits of the tribal synergies in the deck.

Taranika, Akroan Veteran grants indestructibility to one of our utility creature or pump our commander even more; Tajic can now take two swings for lethal commander damage if not block.

I think you have a strong base for a Selesnya token deck but, I am not sure if Emmara, Soul of the Accord is the best choice for your commander. Emmara wants you to tap her and I don't see a lot of ways to tap her in this deck. Maybe consider switching your commander to Trostani, Selesnya's Voice which might work better to get out tokens.

If you want to use Emmara maybe you could look to add a few vehicles to this deck. Personally I think a card like Smuggler's Copter would be a great addition to this deck because, it gives you card filtering and a tap outlet for Emmara. Citanul Hierophants could also help you ramp and will give an additional tap source for Emmara. Nature's Chosen is an older card but would work really well with Emmara. I see you have some cards with the convoke ability which I think is strong in this deck. Maybe consider adding some more convoke cards like, March of the Multitudes , Chord of Calling , Scatter the Seeds and, Conclave Tribunal ?

This deck seems really light on card draw / card advantage, consider using some of these cards to help you draw. Skullclamp which will draw you an insane amount of cards off Emmara alone and, is almost an auto include in a token deck. Idol of Oblivion , Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury , Huatli, Radiant Champion , Season of Growth and, Ohran Frostfang are all really good cards that will give you card advantage and synergies with your token theme. One last card you might consider is Well of Lost Dreams especially if you find yourself gaining a lot of life off the Emmara tokens.

Lastly, I would consider removing these cards, Eidolon of Blossoms , Evangel of Heliod , Oakhame Ranger , Worldsoul Colossus , Banishing Light and, Collective Voyage . While I don't think these cards are bad I don't they they are impactful enough in this deck.

I would consider adding these cards, Parallel Lives , Doubling Season (if you can afford it), Castle Ardenvale , Beastmaster Ascension , Collective Blessing (maybe consider removing some of your smaller anthem effect like, Honor of the Pure for bigger anthem effect like these), Eladamri's Call , Eternal Witness , Champion of Lambholt , Generous Gift and, Beast Within .

Hopefully some of these suggestions helped but, I think you are off to a really good start with your deck!

Forkbeard on Lyra Dawnbringer: Seek & Destroy

Thanks for the card ideas Prospekt, lots to consider here!

  • Endless Horizons is a gamble card in that the guaranteed land drops that come with it are certainly sweet, but the risk of losing EH + the exiled lands to removal is scary. I guess if you don't get too greedy with it and just grab a conservative amount of land it could be acceptable, I'm just not certain what I'd remove to make room for it
  • Dawn of Hope has been suggested a few times now and I like it. It's on theme and likely a reliable draw engine, I should get it in here
  • Mass Calcify is a great 1-sided wipe in theory, but a dead draw against other white decks of course. The casting cost is brutal too, I'd sooner run Wrath of God
  • I will say that Light from Within is a tempting anthem to add seeing as most angels have a minimum of in their casting cost
  • Brave the Elements ! The surprise factor would be great and I like the defensive/offensive versatility, I'm tempted to find room for this
  • Evangel of Heliod is a no go. Expensive to cast, off theme and is really just devotion good stuff
  • Luminarch Ascension seems like a no-brainer inclusion, but my experience with it has been rough. It turns into a game of 'don't let Forkbeard build those quest counters' and I just become the target. It's slow, draws hate & is win-more which is a shame because it's thematically awesome

  • Cheers :D

    BahamutPRME on Casual Greek Deck

    1 year ago

    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.

    Thank you!
