I could see those drops (Spirit Loop and Predator's Gambit), possibly drop Hero of Iroas for Cloud Key while you are at it, because it affects more of your deck, and is harder to remove.

Otherwise the combo doesn't need any support, as Chromium, the Mutable is a sure-fire source of life-loss.

Thank you, SynergyBuild and skoobysnackz.

Tunman, like SynergyBuild stated. I also, didn’t find Vanishing too beneficial in this case. It is an option for protection, if extra is needed for certain metas. Right now, for me, the flex Auras that can be swapped out for alternate spells are, Predator's Gambit, Indestructibility and Spirit Loop. So if this were to be used as a blueprint. Those spells are good as gone for other flavor spells.

jesusaintnodj, thanks for the +1! I’m glad you enjoy the build! SynergyBuild, did mention before that I should add an infinite combo. So by popular demand, I’ll do just that. I’ll add Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond . Also, I have been playing around with a couple prototype builds based on this. One that is the “Control Edition” and the other I have dubbed the “Time Walk Edition.” Time Walk Edition, includes Nexus of Fate, Time Warp, Temporal Mastery, Temporal Trespass, Karn's Temporal Sundering, Temporal Manipulation, Capture of Jingzhou and Walk the Aeons. Cards that I cut for those are, Predator's Gambit, Indestructibility, Spirit Loop, Gilded Lotus, Consecrated Sphinx, Hero of Iroas, Kor Spiritdancer and Sram, Senior Edificer.

City of Solitude is in green ;-;

Autumn's Veil? Wait no... ;-;


Silence?, Grand Abolisher is sweet, use Worldly Tutor, Chord of Calling, Sylvan Tutor, or Eladamri's Call to fetch it up. ;-; (No green)

I guess you can run Recruiter of the Guard though. Nice synergy with the enchantress effects like Mesa Enchantress, Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, it also hits Eidolon of Countless Battles, Hero of Iroas, Nomad Mythmaker, and Snapcaster Mage.

Otherwise you can run Defense Grid, not great, but not the worst, and I guess more counterspells can help stop them countering your stuff. Seedtime is also fun... DANG IT NO GREEN ;-;

Conviction for repeat targeting. Hero of Iroas will make it to play and to return. I have it in a Sigil of the Empty Throne deck.

Super cool deck. I might be missing the point here, but what exactly do you plan to cast all these bestows upon? I'm worried that if you beef up one monstrous creature, it'll be really susceptible to removal spells unless it's like, a Slippery Bogle or Gladecover Scout or something.

Also, I wonder if Hero of Iroas might help you get some of your auras out faster?

Hope you don't mind my questions/suggestions, I'm inspired to try and build a deck sort of like this myself now!

Hello !

You can use Bonds of Faith instead of pacifism You can go x4 Favored Hoplite, same as Hero of Iroas You can also consider a bunch of instant to protect your creatures or draw some cards as it synergises also with "Heroic" if it targets your creatures, I personally suggest Defiant Strike and Emerge Unscathed. For the enchantements, you can go x4 Ethereal Armor aswell, maybe a bunch of Gryff's Boon and I greatly recommend (even if it's a little bit more expensive) Hyena Umbra

This is correct. The gatherer text for Hero of Iroas states:

Hero of Iroass first ability will apply if you cast a card for its bestow cost.

More generally, when you cast a bestow creature for its bestow cost, it is no different than any other aura spell, subject to all the same effects and limitations.

Pretty simple, say I have Hero of Iroas on the field and I want to cast Eidolon of Countless Battles, will it cost less because I have the hero in play?
