Heliod's Pilgrim Discussion

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, Open the Armory, and Totem-Guide Hartebeest are a few more budget price Aura tutors.

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.

Though I'd usually say run Zur the Enchanter as the commander, that is something I think you have thought of. I'd argue for Karmic Justice, Heliod's Pilgrim, Open the Armory, Winds of Rath, Hanna, Ship's Navigator, etc. but I like the deck!

Flickerform + Sage's Reverie is so good!

Too many dead cards in the current list. Pick a strategy and go all-in on it. You don't win matches by being sorta good at two things sometimes.

You can cut lightning greaves , summoning and soldier, run Indulgent Aristocrat, Blade of the Bloodchief and Vampire Cutthroat for an aggro/lifegain strategy that lets you focus on getting black mana turns 1-2-3 then white can be tapllands without losing too much.

Alternatively, build around Heartless Summoning, with more cards in the 3/4 slot (Aven Riftwatcher, Bygone Bishop Eidolon of Rhetoric and Eldrazi Displacer coming down turn three in multiples is devastating), and acceleration like Pentad Prism to ensure you can get them onto the field. You can also put resto back in, run lots of etbs.

This can also help a vampire tribal plan built around stuff like Forerunner of the Legion seasrching for Blood Baron of Vizkopa and Bishop of Rebirth.

If you want archangel of thune's effect, but are running less Kitchen Finks effects, then Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

There are also demon tribal options if you want to go an angels/demons route, with Blood Speaker posessing immense Heartless Summoning synergy.

Auramancer, Heliod's Pilgrim and Ironclad Slayer all point towards an aura strategy, but it is far too easily disrupted to generate the card advantage it needs.

Glad to hear you're enjoying the deck!

I've made some changes to the deck that seem to be for the better: - Changed 2 of the plains with Blossoming Sands; Because it's not running that many lands, getting a green source is essential, and also helps against burn. - Upped Wild Growth to 4 - Upped Heliod's Pilgrim to 4. It's just an amazing asset to this deck. - Added a single Journey to Nowhere to the deck, and one to the sideboard.

I noticed you removed Nylea's Presence; while it's the worst land aura, I really think it contributes quite a bit, specially if you're running cards in the sideboard which aren't WG.

Instead of Arrest, I would run something cheaper, like Journey to Nowhere, Crystallization, or even Lignify. For the decks you need it, you need it quick. Duress has really helped me in many pairings.

I like the concept so I'll give it an upvote, but I have some recommendations: Remove Archive Trap, Traumatize, Render Silent, and 1 copy of Deprive. Run a full playset of each of the combo and Drift of Phantasms, Heliod's Pilgrim, and Trinket Mage. This would give you a near guarantee of getting the combo or a way to get it after 1 mulligan, and a roughly 50/50 chance of getting without a mulligan.

i like the idea of Heliod's Pilgrim and Peregrine Drake as i have a copy of both. not sure what to cut for them

Tsabo's Web does tap some of my lands, buts its mainly there as another 2cmc cantrip alongside Wall of Omens and Spreading Seas, its also worth noting i would run Back to Basics if i had one, and web doesnt tap as much of my stuff as Stasis or Winter Orb/Static Orb, and not to mention i can untap the lands affected by web via Cloud of Faeries,Flickerwisp, Felidar Guardian
