Hero of Iroas Discussion

Auriel on Bruna Transform!!!

1 month ago

I have a Bruna deck as well and some cards I find very helpful are Kor Spiritdancer, Starfield of Nyx, Hero of Iroas, Ajani's Chosen, Enduring Ideal, Celestial Mantle, Sphere of Safety is almost a must run until you can get her going, Nomad Mythmaker, Winds of Rath. Bruna can be removed and if she is it's important to have backups!

Auriel on Hope You Won't Hurt Me (Mono White EDH)

1 month ago

As for cards to replace those I would suggest Sol Ring, Ajani's Chosen Windborn Muse Spirit Mantle Sigil of the Empty Throne Journey to Nowhere Oblivion Ring Nomad Mythmaker Day of Judgment Umbra Mystic Eland Umbra Enduring Ideal Starfield of Nyx Ethereal Armor Lifelink Eidolon of Countless Battles Swiftfoot Boots Karmic Guide Battle Mastery Hero of Iroas Winds of Rath Kor Spiritdancer Arrest Celestial Mantle and Three Dreams. Like I said these are just suggestions as it is your deck! This will just allow you to keep your pillow fort and then swing over the top! There's a lot of equipment you can use as well but that's usually the more pricey route

Here are some creatures that could come out:Wild Wonder, Abzan Skycaptain, Aven Tactician, Bloodbriar, Hero of Iroas, Highspire Artisan, Lifecraft Cavalry, Narnam Renegade, Peema Outrider, Sandsteppe Outcast, Verdant Automaton, Wingsteed Rider: too much mana for minor effect, lack +1/+1 synergy

Hey zephyr_chang, thanks for commenting!

So it's been quite some time now that I'm using this deck, I can assure you 16 lands is enough, since our mana curve is 1-2.

Path to Exile is indeed a great removal, that's why it's on the maybeboard, but since the purpose of this deck is to run on a budget I didn't include it on the main deck.

Defiant Strike has great utility, the card draw helps compensate for the super low mana curve, also, it triggers heroic and it's main function is to protect your early game Favored Hoplite, with that in mind, you can use him as protection against aggro red decks, and helps keep him on the board against cheap control deck removals. Defiant Strike also allows your creature to trade with impunity.

I know most people don't like Ordeal of Heliod, but it's one of my personal favorites, especially for such a cheap card. Besides costing only when you have Hero of Iroas on the board. Ordeal insta-triggers with Fabled Hero, giving you a 5/5 double-striker at turn 4 and healing you 10 points. The heal is really helpful because since you don't want to have too many creatures on the board, it allows you to be more aggressive and not keep creatures untapped to defend. When you're going straight to the face, opponents usually will be hesistant to tap their creatures to attack you, since you're pretty much always hitting harder than they are.

If you have any more doubts or suggestions let me know!

Also, what's your favorite flavor text in the game?

Have a great day.

For a similar reason I would move Spreading Seas to the sideboard in favor of more pump spells or creatures. Even though it gets a discount from Hero of Iroas and doesn't cost a card, it doesn't really further your game plan of hitting face.

I personally would only run 2 copies of Anax and Cymede, mainly since that card is legendary, and you only can have one on the field anyway.

I was sort of surprised to not see Phalanx Leader in here, since I view him as a staple for Heroic decks.

I would also suggest some Auras like Daybreak Coronet, Ethereal Armor, Madcap Skills, and Spirit Mantle. If you do take the Aura approach, I would also throw in Hero of Iroas, Graceblade Artisan, and Kor Spiritdancer.

Karzalar on Holy Hell.

I'd remove the 4x Hero of Iroas, 2x Divine Favor, 1x Pacifism, 3xImmolating Glare, 1x Mass Calcify.

As to what i'd add.

Budget version suggestions down below - choose what you'd want from it.

Lands : Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Ghost Quarter to help against problematic lands.

Creatures : Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Rhox Faithmender, Felidar Sovereign for another wincon.

Enchantments : Test of Endurance for another wincon, Darksteel Mutation (fetchable), Ethereal Armor encourages the use of Oblivion Ring, Banishing Light and Stasis Snare as removals.

Artifacts : Well of Lost Dreams (since drawing in white is hard)

Instants : Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares if you don't want to play a lot of enchantments. Return to Dust is nice, also.

Non-budget suggestions :

Lands : Serra's Sanctum if you play a lot of enchantments. Can help ramp up quick for more angels.

Creatures : Archangel of Thune for massive creatures, if you gain a lot of life. Triggers with the ''Soul sisters'' in the non-budget version, for each time a creature enters you gain +1/+1 counters.
