Heliod's Pilgrim Discussion

Dzeimis on UGw Arcanum Wings

Thanks for input :) Good point on the curve, there's a big chance I would be able to play only 1 CMC or 3 CMC spell on T3. After some initial playtesting and figured that I end up skipping Auramancers pretty much all the time. I am considering putting them (along with the plains) to sideboard just in case. Or I might drop them at all. Will see after testing against couple of friend's decks.

Heliod's Pilgrim and Invisible Stalker were in the decks I found with this combo, but I wanted to make my version faster and give less time for the opponent to disrupt it / do their own combo, thus Slither Blades instead of Stalkers. On the other hand, as I indeed lack 2-drops, I will reconsider the Stalkers.

I was considering changing two Supreme Wills to Indexes, but Commune with the Gods also seems like a nice idea. Liked the instant speed of Wills and them doubling as a counterspell though.

While Auramancer has its uses, isn't it more important to actually find the right aura in the first place? Heliod's Pilgrim is the card I would use in this spot, probably at least 3 of them, and only play one or even no Auramancers.
Supreme Will is a great card, but you already have plenty of cmc3 cards. It's always annoying to draw too many of those when you have access to 4-5 mana and can only cast one cmc3 spell a turn. Since your other cards are essential to your synergy, reducing the number of Supreme Will seems like the most logical way to adress this. I suggest replacing two of them with Commune with the Gods which is a great tool at finding the missing piece to your combo.
As for creatures to enchant, Invisible Stalker might be just what you are looking for, but 1-drops fit your curve much better.

Hey thanks for the suggestions. Enlightened tutor is one I definitely need to pick up at some point. I actually have recently added Flickerform but forgot to update my list before I cycled it. Great spot on the Heliod's Pilgrim

Since you're running mono-white, how about Mass Calcify? You could also add Indestructibility to give someone more protection (and then Odric, Lunarch Marshal is giving that to everyone else you've got during combat). There's always the staple removal spells, like Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares.

Intrepid Hero might be worth a look, if you're facing a meta with lots of big fatties.

It's not super budget-friendly, but the new Teferi's Protection from the Commander 2017 precons could be hilarious and a decent bit of protection. Hammer of Nazahn would fit in well with your equipment package.

And have you thought about recursion much? Running Mistveil Plains would restock your library, though you'd probably need some stronger tutors to make it worthwhile or at all effective (or more flicker effects to use on Heliod's Pilgrim so you can take advantage of that ETB effect).

Curse of Misfortunes seems like an auto-include in here. Trespasser's Curse could mess with people playing decks that go wide or loop ETB effects. Aura Gnarlid grows from your Curses. Ironclad Slayer is another way to recur the Curses. Open the Armory, Heliod's Pilgrim and Three Dreams are great tutor effects for your deck. Replenish and Open the Vaults can be crazy spells in here, and great blowouts after a boardwipe/against mill. Hero of Iroas makes your Curses cheaper. Sram, Senior Edificer gives you some more draw power. The deck looks fun, and like it'd be a blast to play against.

Asmodeus_82 on Brago, king flicker

Ok well your best bets for closing out the game are going wide with tokens and maybe a few anthem effects or going combo for combo or you can always Voltron with Brago. I did forget to mention Voltron.

For a while I used to run Sovereigns of Lost Alara to get Eldrazi Conscription which does work but usually if I pulled it off I would kill one player and then someone would stop me so I cut from mine, but sticking some aura's on Brago and swinging a few times while no-one can do anything does the trick. If you decide to try out Voltron style check out Heliod's Pilgrim as well. You can actually develop a pretty legit little package for it as there are quite a few good Aura's in U/W and some with good ETB's as well.There are a few aura's you can run that will both help to protect Brago and buff him to make him a decent clock like Spectra Ward.

beeplus on Uril, The Miststalker: Feast of the Beast

Hey, I came across this deck because it's so similar to my own Uril enchantress deck and I'm always looking for ideas. How well do you think Femeref Enchantress works? I've never tried her, but it seems like Hunter's Insight or Rishkar's Expertise might be more effective for drawing.

It also seems like Gilded Lotus isn't really a great fit here. Ramp into casting Uril is probably more effective instead of taking up a 5 drop slot. And with so few artifacts you could run Stony Silence, which can cause major problems for a lot of decks.

I also recommend the aura tutors Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim. perhaps just replacing some of the weaker Uril auras. Maybe take out Indestructibility since you can get the cheaper and much better Shield of the Oversoul with a tutor?

Karzalar on Sigarda, Host of Budget

Hello to you, fellow Sigarda player!

If i follow what you said correctly, you do have a 71$ budget for upgrades? Let's check, then.

Kor Spiritdancer is another Mesa Enchantress/Verduran/Eidolon for card draw, and can be a win condition herself in case of Sigarda being locked being Commander tax. Argothian Enchantress is awesome, too.

So is Femeref Enchantress, in case someone wipes the board and you lose all your enchantments.

You have NO instants? You need some removal or recursion in that. As far as recursion goes, Faith's Reward is great and Replenish is too.

And for removal, you get some goodies in those colors which can help in flexibility : Beast Within, Swords to Plowshares, Unexpectedly Absent, Dromoka's Command...

Some creatures to consider : Eternal Witness, Dragonlord Dromoka, Heliod's Pilgrim

Some other enchantments to consider :

Darksteel Mutation (removal as an aura, very good against enemy commanders)

Flickering Ward (for repeatable card draw with any enchantress)

Nevermore (to block that pesky Cyclonic Rift/Black Sun's Zenith/Merciless Eviction that can break your game, otherwise just block their commander!)

Ghostly Prison (Another, smaller Sphere of Safety)

Privileged Position (to protect, like Sterling Grove. Plus, if all two are on the battlefield, everything you control is Hexproof!)


The only non-budget suggestion that i GOT to make is :

Serra's Sanctum because tapping it for more than 5 mana is not uncommon...

If you want more suggestions, i'll simply put a shameless promotion of my own take on Sigarda, which is a Stax-type deck - Enchanted! I'm Sigarda, and here's how you die..
