There are a few budget options like which play to this strategy- cheap enchantments which draw a card and a bunch of enchantment matters stuff to throw at their face. The cards that make it tick are Ethereal Armor and All That Glitters . Creatures like Champion of the Flame , Favored Hoplite & Lagonna-Band Trailblazer help.

Cartouche of Solidarity offers protection against 'sacrifice a creature' effects. Gleam of Authority can work alongside counters from heroic, but likes a higher creature count than ideal. If you insist on playing reckoner, Saving Grace exists. Hammerhands/ Cartouche of Zeal has eight functional copies if you often face single blockers, but Gryff's Boon offers flying and recursion. Consuming Fervor has a great rate for a pump spell.

Past that, its the sideboard battle. Flamespeaker's Will / Mortal Obstinacy and Chained to the Rocks are worth knowing that they exist.

Have fun and happy brewing!

Favored Hoplite could be fun with Reckless Rage ?? Idk though. Maybe too low-impact.

Great suggestion! Thanks! I'll probably cut out Boros swiftblade to pull in the Favored Hoplite

I'll definitely make room for the Aether Vial as well.

After some play testing I'll figure out where I can fit in Legion Loyalist

Favored Hoplite 1 drops are pretty important to be doing something on Turn 1. can't take turns off in modern.

I was a little surprised that I didn't see Favored Hoplite Hero of Iroas Fabled Hero Kytheon's Irregulars Akroan Crusader to represent Jason, Achilles, Hercules, Odysseus, Hector, Perseus or any of those people.

Firemane Avenger is a good budget card, but doesn't really interact with your auras. Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is good too, but I don't know if you want to be playing four copies of a legendary 5-drop. You might want to sub out some of those for Favored Hoplite , Akroan Skyguard , or Graceblade Artisan .
