Heliod's Pilgrim Discussion

Idyllic Tutor helps increase your tutor count.
Hope you find these suggestions useful. Cheers!

Thanks for the input, wisegreenbean. I removed most of those before reading your comment, but those that are still in the list will stay for now. Felidar Sovereign will likely be cut, but it is a reasonable body with lifelink, and can occasionally win the game.
Sunscorch Regent is a card that I think you're underestimating. It can get enormous, and gains a little bit of life. That said, I made this list in about 40 minutes this morning, so I am still very much testing cards in and out.
The Aura/Equipment package: Heliod's Pilgrim does only get auras, and while the package might be too cute, the versatility is definitely worth testing before I make a final decision. Open the Armory can get me Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, or Behemoth Sledge, and feels much more strong a consideration for it.
Hydra Broodmaster is a test card solely because of Shalai's hexproof giving. Depending on whether she tends to be killed off or not, it may or may not make the cut. The strongest consideration is that Like WG does in edh, overextending into a wipe can easily lose this deck the game, and having a way to add to my board meaningfully without playing out more cards from hand is worth considering.

I reckon average CMC probably needs to come down overall. You have almost no ramp in the deck, afterall, only like 5 cards. 21 at >5 CMC seems pretty whack, especially when your commander is a mana sink. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves seems reasonable value with your creature synergies.
Felidar Sovereign seems not synergistic. Low life gain opportunities.
Reya Dawnbringer is clunk town, particularly with lots of other ways to reanimate/prevent creatures dying.
Hydra Broodmaster will probably be a 2 turn process. That's usually a 7/7 for 6, followed up by 3 3/3s if it lives. 19 power for 13 mana isn't really an exceptional rate on mana efficiency, and it offers so little utility.
Yosei, the Morning Star seems ambitious with your fairly small reanimator suite.
Sunscorch Regent seems a bit like a do-nothing fatty.
The Great Aurora feels pretty bad when you really aren't a dedicated token deck.
Angelic Arbiter is a giant awkward fatty that ALSO gives your opponent choices. Don't love it.
The 'aura package' might be too cute. I think you already are working in a lot of different directions there, between trying to be a counters deck, and a hatebears deck, and a tokens deck. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are not exceptional. This makes Lignify pretty bad too.
You have a variety of field sweeps despite being a creature deck. I don't think this is wrong, but given the effort you've put into 'indestructible synergy', the sweeps that bypass indestructible seem problematic for you. Note, this still leaves you with 5 sweeps after Hallowed Burial and Descend upon the Sinful are cut.

bscarrots I think Chain veil an be very strong in estrid, you can win straight away with enough enrampments. power artifact isnt needed. (you can -1 targeting chain veil, activate CV and +2 estrid)
I personally dont know what I would cut for it. you can definitely make it your main win condition for estrid with cards like Three Dreams/Heliod's Pilgrim/Open the Armory/etc. to grab your enrampments for the combo. And multipurpose cards to fetch the veil (Wargate/Enlightened Tutor/etc.) and can even pack Teferi, Temporal Archmage in the 99 as an alternate win condition.

Hey cool deck! I think you need Flickering Ward, it's the MVP of my deck. Gives protection and repeated card draw every turn with Tuvasa. I would also recommend adding Thought Vessel for additional ways of getting no-max handsize since you'll be drawing a ton of cards. Since you're playing auras, you need tutors for it like Open the Armory. Sovereigns of Lost Alara, Three Dreams, and Heliod's Pilgrim.

You've got pieces for a few different strategies. Your deck could get a huge boost in power at the cost of a little versatility if you focus on just one or two.
Enchanted Evening does have some synergy with Avacyn, Angel of Hope or Ethereal Armor and can make the basis for a good Control/Resource Denial strategy but more likely than not its going to make your opponent's Merciless Eviction into a better Apocalypse unless you can abuse it with cards like Greater Auramancy, Cleansing Meditation, Calming Verse, Aura Thief, or Sterling Grove.
There's probably not enough card draw. You might want to run a few more enchantresses effects like Sram, Senior Edificer or Mesa Enchantress or straight up card draw like Rishkar's Expertise or Soul's Majesty

Heliod's Pilgrim might be worth including and is something I am putting in my own build since it tutors for pattern and curves into it as well as provides a body for it.
For a more casual meta, the Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond combo could be a back up combo since it relies on an aura as well. At least, I know I can afford to those in my meta and cut a few hate cards. The combo is not strong enough to win on its own but a sac outlet with Blood Artist does.

SynergyBuild, since there is a lot of hype built around Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip and Arcades, the Strategist. I wanted to build an elder dragon myself. So the choice I made was Chromium, the Mutable. Yes, Zur the Enchanter, would definitely be the more competitive option in Esper, indeed. But this is for the sake of elder dragon fun.
Karmic Justice, Winds of Rath and Hanna, Ship's Navigator, could potentially earn a spot in the roster. I’m still working out the kinks with the build and I can’t get any true statistics, until I get some games in with my playgroup.
Unfortunately, through making some tough cuts, such cards as, Open the Armory, Heliod's Pilgrim and Three Dreams, did not make it in with the rest of the Tutor spells. I was finding myself tutoring for other things than auras.
As always, thanks for your feedback and suggestions.
