Hero of Iroas Discussion

andil on Enchant them all, all of us

Herald of the Pantheon would be the a good choice because of the second ability. But I need card draw more than cost reduction. I also tested a playset of Hero of Iroas, my preferred choice for reduction. In my deck case, all Enchantments are Auras, so Sram, Senior Edificer limitation is not so important.

Hey Alvatariano. Wow it's been a while since I've seen a 60 card deck haha. I'm assuming the list is cards you already own, in which case it looks like a decent start. You have a lot going on here though and I think the deck would flow better if you focus on one particular strategy.

For example, you could do a dedicated aura strategy: Thran Golem, Brilliant Halo, Tragic Poet, Dawn Evangel, Tethmos High Priest, Squee's Embrace, Mesa Enchantress, Chained to the Rocks, Prophetic Flamespeaker, Hero of Iroas, Akroan Crusader, Phalanx Leader.

Or spellslinger style: Blaze Commando, Rile, Feather, the Redeemed, Reckless Rage, Zada, Hedron Grinder, Launch the Fleet, Guttersnipe, Twinflame, Ephemeral Shields, Fists of Flame, Charmbreaker Devils.

I buy single cards on tcgplayer.com since they're usually cheapest there. I've found you get more bang for your buck when buying singles rather than booster packs (even though packs are fun to open haha). For example you could get all of the cards mentioned above for about $7.

Looks super fun, +1 from me! Aphemia and Alseid seem like they could be replaced with better beaters. Namely Blessed Spirits, Graceblade Artisan, and Hero of Iroas all reward you for suiting them up with your enchantments.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

vasarto77 on Heliod, Sun crowned idea mill

I have decided to put my Korvold deck I wanted to make recently to the side which "due to big debt from previous card purchases" made it look like it might be too expensive for what I wanted. So, I was looking around for a new commander of some kind and despite the fact of how much I absolutely hated the original Theros block and how apathetic towards this one I was I saw the new heliod and really gave it a look over for the first time and realized she would be a really fun and NON super ultra instinct level commander. I tried a mono green as my very first commander which was the locust of mana so I think having a new mono color commander could be fun for my deck rotation. So, help me brainstorm for ideas for what to put in this deck. I already know all about EDHREC and I looked it over and I think we could do a bit better than the list of stuff that is given there.

I already have the showcase version of heliod - Not foil unfortunately- and I was thinking of adding this combo in the deck.

Famished Paladin + Resplendent Mentor I also was thinking maybe doing a slight "aura" theme with the deck-but I don't think there is enough good mono white auras to make use of creatures like Hero of Iroas I could go with tokens as a secondary theme which cards I was thinking of using like Honor of the Pure Benalish Marshal and Storm Herd could be good. But then I might run into the problem of overdoing it with Tokens which I would have to decide WHICH kind of white tokens I would want to aim for that would still let me get in the "lifelink" theme that the deck would run on. I also have things like Sun Titan Archetype of Courage Dawn Charm Loyal Unicorn Idyllic Tutor and Three Dreams in addition to some of the staples from edhrecs' list. I know this can potentially be a really great mid power white aggro life gain-Possibly aura and tokens deck. But I don't normally play white-ever. I have probably have ever had possibly 2 mono white decks "both standard at the time" during the entire time I have ever played magic the gathering. It will also be a challenge since statistics show that having any white in your deck what so ever, even a single card gives you a -1% chance at winning games LOL. Not lying, so to beat someone with a mono white deck would be highly satisfying, especially if they are playing a higher power commander with the higher powered colors like blue green and black or heck, maybe even all three.

Anyone else can brain storm up some ideas? Possibly combos that are infinite or just a singular combo that is fun or strong or possibly what kinds of auras or creature base I should shoot for? Should I go soldier or humans for my lifelink or simply just fill out my deck with creatures with lifelink with no thought to what else they are or do?

Hero of Iroas too if you're running expensive enchantments. I took him out of my build because I was able to tweak everything down to 1-2 mana casts pretty much, but he's real decent.

cpollock055 on Just wait until I play my Bogle

8 months 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?
