Heliod, God of the Sun

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God


As long as your devotion to white is less than five, Heliod isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts towards your devotion to white.)

Other creatures you control have vigilance.

: Put a 2/1 white Cleric enchantment creature token onto the battlefield.

Heliod, God of the Sun Discussion

Jonchapman90 on Odric

I would agree. Vigilance is one of my favorite abilities in EDH, as we've said and agreed on before. But, Oketra is ALWAYS a creature, which means, with Odric, she's ALWAYS giving him and other creatures double strike and indestructible. Unlike Heliod, who needs to be activated to help the other creatures in the vein of Odric's ability, which isn't always exactly easy since this Odric deck employs a little bit of token play, creatures who are not giving devotion. Plus, with her ability, it's always easy enough to get to two creatures + Odric to activate her. And, those tokens would get double strike and indestructible even if she couldn't attack. I'd say it's a slam dunk, Oketra the True > Heliod, God of the Sun.

I'm thinking about replacing Heliod, God of the Sun with Oketra the True. Thoughts?

A couple of thoughts for you:1) Brion Stoutarm fling on a stick

2) Conjurer's Closet has some neat interactions with the steal creatures theme. Bounce the stolen creature and you get to keep it. (I'm 90% sure this is how it works)

3) Captain of the Watch works for multiple categories in this deck.

Depending on budget there are a bunch of other options including plane's walkers and Heliod, God of the Sun and Purphoros, God of the Forge would both fit this deck fairly well.

Miracles-and-Charms-of-Alara on BW Enchantress

Hello, my children of Magic! My name is Alara, and I have come to seek the aid of those of the knowledgeable. As the title portrays, I am thinking of BW Enchantress (non-competitive) featuring Mesa Enchantress, constellations creatures Underworld Coinsmith and Grim Guardian and perhaps Atheros, God of Passage and/or Heliod, God of the Sun. Tell me your input of what to include in this deck idea.

Rzepkanut on An "Enchanting" Experience

Heliod, God of the Sun, Pharika, God of Affliction and to a much lesser extent Fated Intervention make enchantment creature tokens and don't suck...the other cards that make similar tokens all need to be "inspired" to trigger and are kinda sucky. I see you aren't doing the voltron thing much but Helm of the Gods, Ancestral Mask, Auramancer's Guise, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ethereal Armor, & Kor Spiritdancer are so good in most enchantment decks. Happy gathering!!

Things to Drop


Brainstorm - one time not enough. Consider Sensei's Divining Top, Pongify/Rapid Hybridization - Ok. Consider Path to Exile and Stasis Snare


Potentially getting to the point of too many sweepers, but I think its ok.


Archangel of Tithes - Just ok., Filigree Familiar - Not enough, Heliod, God of the Sun - Really not that great, Palisade Giant - Probably better served as another enchantment


Mind Unbound - Consider the fact that it isnt a may ability


Dovin Baan - Really not that great

Things to Consider

Sol Ring!!!!, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Sun Titan, Blind Obedience - Technically just a white color identity, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Luminarch Ascension, Land Tax, Frozen AEther, Chromatic Lantern, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Cryptic Command, Capsize!!!, Forbid, MindStone, Commander's Sphere, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, AEtherize, Mystic Confluence, Quarantine Field, Austere Command, Entreat the Angels, Mystic Remora, Thassa, God of the Sea, Jace, Architect of Thought, Venser, Shaper Savant
