Hero of Iroas Discussion

cpollock055 on Just wait until I play my Bogle

2 weeks ago

-I'm not sure that this is a Once Upon a Time deck. It only hits 10 "important" things and if you already have a bogle in play it's pretty much useless and a waste of mana. Maybe keeping 1 for some insurance is fine but I don't think that card is meant for this deck.

-I'm not totally sold on Gift of Orzhova . It's just a slightly worse version of Unflinching Courage and gums up your curve by being so high cmc. I would just go the full 4 Unflinching courage and replace the remaining two Gifts with some lower cmc auras (maybe Gryff's Boon if you're worried about having flying? And to provide early evasion).

- Hero of Iroas seems really strong for racing non-interactive linear/combo decks and reducing your somewhat high aura curve, but obviously isn't great for other more interactive matchups since it doesn't have hexproof.

-I would most definitely play Veil of Summer in the sideboard, that card is just far too powerful to not play and protects you against Thoughtseize and your opponent blowing up your key auras.

-And finally I don't think you're winning the game if you have to play Witchstalker on 3. Waiting to attack until turn 4 is too long in this format even if they do ban the more degenerate stuff like copy cat and Kethis combo.


Upvoted. Creative and budget-friendly. Good luck hope you have fun in the new format! :)

Thanks for this deck, looks really fun to play so I'm building it in paper for casual play.

Would Hero of Iroas and Steel of the Godhead make for good places to start upgrading?

BoardDumb on To War Enchantresses! A Mono White Aura Deck

Not a bad idea. I think auras are widely overlooked and I see potential here.

I think there's room for the devotion mech to be strengthened for the benefit of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , and some room to even make the deck somewhat more competitive if you're interested.

I would consider cards like Worship , which become easier to cast with Hero of Iroas already maxed out in the MB, and Leyline of Sanctity which provides 2 white symbols for devotion to white. Each offer quite a frustrating foil to a good number of and burn and hate decks.

In order to make room, I would suggest boarding or removing at least 1 or more Hyena Umbra and Angelic Destiny each. I also suggest a slight thinning out of auras in general, try for no more than 20, to offer the player a contingent against hand flooding uncastable auras early game, and thus, mulligans.

Umbra Mystic makes Hyena Umbra a fair bit redundant, you have plenty offering first strike as it is, making first strike also I think a bit redundant, so even replacing Hyena Umbra with stronger, more mana costly white auras which can benefit from Hero of Iroas , would be another suggestion here.

This is the most painful suggestion, due to the $$ involved... If you can get your hands on 4x Stoneforge Mystic and at least 1x Sword of Fire and Ice , that there is a great combo for both drawing cards and dealing with decks with aura removal. I would recommend thy be at least in the sideboard.

Funkydiscogod: uh thats a spicy combo, well thanks for that. I can flash it in via Sigarda's Aid , which I want to do anyway. My first thought was a bit expensive for 4 Mana, but Hero of Iroas and Starfield Mystic can take care of that. I will definitely consider it.

I have a Pauper deck that may be worth a look for some tools/ideas. GW heroic

with a return to Tharos soon some cool tools should be added, I would look into the old Tharos sets as well as there is Hero of Iroas that may be something you would want.

Okay, this list will probably be long so I'll see if I can break it up.

Sram, Senior Edificer - basic stuff, card draw when you play an enchant

Kor Spiritdancer - same thing as above

Sphinx's Revelation and other x draw spells like Pull from Tomorrow , or Read the Runes

Curator's Ward - hexproof for your enchanted and draw if it's on bruna

Starfield Mystic - not crazy about this one, but it does reduce the cost of your enchantments when you have to cast them.

Danitha Capashen, Paragon - More Enchantment cost reduction

Hero of Iroas - same as above

Traumatize fast, ableit expensive, way to dump a ton of enchantments into your graveyard for Bruna
Winds of Rath - self explanatory

Divine Reckoning - nice when you have bruna and want to keep her

Single Combat - same as above

Umbra Mystic - good safety net for your auras

Eldrazi Conscription - expensive, but powerful aura

Spectra Ward - usually makes bruna unblockable

Spirit Mantle - usually makes bruna unblockable

Temple of the False God - land ramp, usually nice

Hedron Archive - ramp that turns into card draw if needed

Tons of tons of cards tutor enchantments, so consider those as well.

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...

Akroan Crusader definitely reminds me of Achilles. Even though I think Akroans were meant to be Trojans, see Akroan Horse

Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris

Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy

Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons

Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion

Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!

Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas

That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

I was a little surprised that I didn't see Favored Hoplite Hero of Iroas Fabled Hero Kytheon's Irregulars Akroan Crusader to represent Jason, Achilles, Hercules, Odysseus, Hector, Perseus or any of those people.
