Liaramancer on Win Hard: Or Die Trying (Akroan Style)

I'm playing this deck in 2018 and it's still going strong! I replaced Boros Swiftblade with Swiftblade Vindicator. She's an obvious upgrade that only loses to turn three Goblin Chainwhirler. Two cards I'm considering is Tajic, Legion's Edge and Chance for Glory. I'm hesitant to cut an Anax for him, but the benefit is he gives our creatures protection from removal like Chainwhirler and has haste so he can mentor a creature like Fabled Hero or Swiftblade Vindicator the turn you play him. I wonder if there's room for Chance for Glory. It's an all or nothing card, but the deck theme is win hard or die trying, right? Finally, should Rush of Adrenaline replace Titan's Strength? I like the scry but I've been in situations where Fabled Hero could easily kill if he wasn't being blocked. And the turn three kill combo with Favored Hoplite + Ordeal of Purphoros + Boros Charm + Titan's Strength still works with Rush of Adrenaline.

Hello !

You can use Bonds of Faith instead of pacifism You can go x4 Favored Hoplite, same as Hero of Iroas You can also consider a bunch of instant to protect your creatures or draw some cards as it synergises also with "Heroic" if it targets your creatures, I personally suggest Defiant Strike and Emerge Unscathed. For the enchantements, you can go x4 Ethereal Armor aswell, maybe a bunch of Gryff's Boon and I greatly recommend (even if it's a little bit more expensive) Hyena Umbra

Favored Hoplite or Hada Freeblade synergise better.

In commander, I have had pretty good luck with Eidolon of Countless Battles in an aura-based deck. I have not tried it out in a modern-deck, but I see no reason why it would not work. It works quite well with heroic, effectively doubling its effect (i.e. both it and Favored Hoplite are on the field, you target Hoplite, who gets a +1/+1 counter, and Eidolon, or the creature it enchantes, also increases by 1/1).

Generally, I try to cast it as a 4 mana aura. While this is a lot more difficult to cast than your other auras, it has one unique advantage--if the enchanted creature is removed, you retain Eidolon as a powerful creature.

The Heroic ability on Favored Hoplite triggers when you first cast the Defiant Strike targeting it. Changing the target of the spell won't do anything to "un-trigger" the ability or otherwise interfere with it. Favored Hoplite will get a +1/+1 counter (and you'll prevent all damage that would be dealt to it this turn).

I actually think that you do get the counter. The way the stack works is like this (top to bottom):

to

to

Then, if there are no more spells / abilities put onto the stack, it starts to resolve like this:

to

to a 1/4 Spellskite and you (not your opponent) draw a card.
