Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

You may want to consider Eidolon of Countless Battles to swing for serious damage, and/or Hopeful Eidolon as it can be played turn 1 or bestow later and the lifegain will buffer against burn or aggro. Eidolon of Rhetoric, Aegis of the Gods, and Spirit of the Labyrinth are all great sideboard cards against specific archetypes. An Erebos, God of the Dead in the side could also help against lifegain decks like those using Mastery of the Unseen. A 1x of Helm of the Gods mainboard could be good way to finish off, but you'd need something like Nylea, God of the Hunt for trample. Looks good though, +1

Killkow on quick pauper win

Still loses to Rune of Protection: Red xD

But Assault Strobe could be a solid card for this deck.My question is: how is this a quick win? You need to get to 3 mana before this becomes relevant.

I mean sure, the god draw of Titan's Strength, Assault Strobe, 3x Mutagenic Growth, Mountain Bandit, Mountain, and topdecking a mountain is a turn 2 win, but that will never happen xP

You'd be better off going mono white voltron. Hopeful Eidolon with 2 Ethereal Armor swinging a 7 lifelink on turn 2 is adorable.

your build is really Aura-heavy and kinda creature-light. i feel like you might get a lot of starting hands without creatures to enchant. maybe you could replace some enchantments with some 'Bestow' enchantment-creatures like Eidolon of Countless Battles, Flitterstep Eidolon, Hopeful Eidolon, or Boon Satyr.

also, 'constellation' cards can get some pretty crazy interactions with a deck like this, particularly Eidolon of Blossoms, Strength from the Fallen, and Skybind.

Also also, Bruna, Light of Alabaster goes absolutely bonkers with aura based decks if you can make the game go long enough to get her out.

Really like where this deck is going, good luck with it. +1d, and if you like crazy enchantment interactions, then check out my deck Screams from the Fallen, might give you some fun ideas :D

Ok inari82- I can dig it. I like Tainted Remedy too- let's see what we can make work.

I must admit, you've got some cards here that I hadn't thought of.... Last Breath and Congregate are pretty solid... esp Congregate. That can be an auto win if the board is full and the Remedy out, or just a life saver without it.

So just looking at your list, it seems that you're flooding the board with tokens for a big Congregate, using Butcher as an alt win con, Sidisi to tutor up the Remedy, and the Auramancer to return any lost Remedy's- sound about right? And you're probably trying to stay somewhat budget?

The problem I see with this deck is that tokens by themselves are weak, and tend to get crushed... If all you see are token cards and no Butcher or Sidisi to exploit, the game will be over quickly. And with this many token cards, you tend to see a lot of them. Add in you only run 2 of each of the Butcher and Sidisi and no card draw- you won't reliably see them. You're going to end up casting Last Breath on your own token to try and stay alive more often than not...

So we'll probably need to take out some of the token cards, or find a way to buff them... however, if we're buffing tokens, we're probably getting away from the Tainted Remedy theme.How about more of a B\W build?

My thoughts on the deck idea involved Butcher's Glee and Mortal's Ardor. Let your opponent attack you and before damage you pump their guy and give them lifelink. You'll obviously need blockers to absorb the damage, but that goes well into a heavy creature theme that would work perfectly with congregate. Maybe a warrior theme? I don't think there are enough cards to be a totally dedicated Remedy deck- (if only Beacon of Immortality was legal) so it has to be more of an additional win-con... so we 're basically building a life gain deck with cards that should benefit from gaining life -aka- Ajani's Pridemate and maybe Sunbond, but also can be used to fit with enchantments and the Remedy. Something along the lines of Hopeful Eidolon- you enchant their big fatty with Remedy out and I bet they won't attack with it....


IzuKorasu on aura counters

if you want to build more into Gleam of Authority, a heroic kind of build with Favored Hoplite and Hero of Iroas provide support. cards like Ajani's Presence (protection) and Launch the Fleet (tokens) allow you to target multiple creatures, adding more counters and more creatures.

if your leaned harder on enchantments, Greater Auramancy is huge, sure it prevents you from stacking enchantments onto the same creature, but with modern level removal, its important ... also gives cards like Eidolon of Countless Battles shroud on arrival. (Hopeful Eidolon, Nyx-Fleece Ram can help stabilize and Skybind is a fun card with this many triggers)

Mesa Enchantress, seems like a useful way to keep cards in hand

Interesting choice of colors I think I see what you are trying to do but I don't think Sightless Brawler helps.

Cards I recommend for mainboard!


Brimaz, King of Oreskos He will bring tokens to block/attack w/ and first strike won't hurt him one bit !

Collected Company most of your cards are 3 cost or so this card will bring them out a turn or 2 early and acts as a way to cycle your deck along if you are in a land hole!

Iroas, God of Victory Interesting turn for you deck making your opponent unable to block and kill but still leaves you open to burn which will bring trouble !

Eidolon of Countless Battles or Hopeful Eidolon may help more then Borderland Marauder or Firedrinker Satyr

Spear of Heliod a great card that is cheap as can be right now it will make your opponent think twice before attacking buffs your creatures!

SideBoard Ideas:

Yasova Dragonclaw She may be good if your game is going to go on for a long time so late game you can sneak a couple hits in killing your opponents monster!

Godsend get out those annoying dragons!
