Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

Ethereal Armor works really well with enchantment creatures. For a while, it was being put on Hopeful Eidolon. Isarmaru does give a 2/2 for 1 CMC, but it doesn't do anything else for you and is a legendary. I liked your comment about a Soldier of the Pantheon as a 1 drop, the eidolon is a 1 drop as well, or maybe even Judge's Familiar. Just make sure you are getting the best value for your creature slots.

Love the deck! GL and HF

The life gain can be good if it leads to a win condition. I like your chalice. You may want more of them! Something else you might like is Ordeal of Heliod paired with Sunbond on a creature with heroic, like Hero of Iroas.

Getting rid of your Lifelink enchantment might be best, because most of your creatures have really low damage. So swapping Lifelink for more creatures or more spells might be nice, like Hopeful Eidolon

If you are willing to risk adding green Unflinching Courage, or from an equipment perspective, Loxodon Warhammer

Mmmh... Maybe I would switch Nimbus Naiad Observant Alseid Battlewise Hoplite and Jeskai Student for... lets say another Monastery Swiftspear and a full playset of Fabled Hero. Have you considered running Titan's Strength and Hopeful Eidolon? Maybe Battle Mastery?

Also, more Hopeful Eidolon, Master of the Feast, Herald of Torment, Armament of Nyx, more Eidolon of Blossoms, andNyx-Fleece Ram. Take out both Planeswalkers, the lamia, underworld coinsmith, nyx weaver, the archo and the doom wake giant.

Please link all cards in your question. Use double square brackets to do so.

Graceblade Artisan
Eidolon of Countless Battles
Hopeful Eidolon

Graceblade Artisan does not get counters, it gets a static +2/+2 for each Aura attached to it. This means that the ability can stack (from multiple auras) but if an Aura becomes unattached, it loses the buff for that Aura.

Well it depends on what you'd like to do. You could go a lot of ways with it (these being just a few), be they lifelink, extort, or tokens. Say you wanted to go with lifelink and extort you could go Hopeful Eidolon or Soulmender into Syndic of Tithes or Nearheath Pilgrim you could then go Fiendslayer Paladin into Seraph of Dawn or Angel of Jubilation.

Or you could use exalted (when a creature attacks alone it gets +1/+1 for each creature with exalted) Akrasan Squire to Knight of Glory into Silverblade Paladin.

For tokens you could just go Boros Elite to Precinct Captain to Court Street Denizen and sweeten it up with Raise the Alarm or Gather the Townsfolk.

I'd cut 2 to 3 lands personally, add some lower cost creatures and let the angels be the top of your curve, though I'd also look into angels with bigger effects. Think Emeria Angel for bird token swarms with your search lands, or Angelic Skirmisher for combat control, Seraph of Dawn because flying lifelink is lovely and you could always run pump or equipment for it, or for flavor you could add things like Angelic Armaments, Call To Serve Angel's Tomb, Scroll of Avacyn, Seraph Sanctuary, Angelic Page, or Angel's Feather. That's the thing about casual modern, you can just have fun with it, but you probably do want your angels to give you bang for you buck so to speak.

As for soldiers, knights, and honestly just low cost white cards in general that can give you presence, there are quite a few. Precinct Captain, Boros Elite, Azorius Arrester, Favored Hoplite, Raise the Alarm, Gather the Townsfolk, Fencing Ace, Silverblade Paladin, Loyal Cathar  Flip, Phalanx Leader, Banisher Priest, Elite Vanguard, Fiend Hunter, Ajani's Pridemate, Syndic of Tithes, Hopeful Eidolon, Trained Caracal the list goes on honestly because most of the low cost little white guys are budget, even ones with interesting effects.

Honestly, as far as a strategy goes, I think lifegain and lifelink could help you stay alive until you cast your angels as a finisher.

Vasagi on You Think You're Tough...

Just an idea that could really transform your deck and make it a potential surprise beast: Strength from the Fallen

You've already got Commune with the Gods dumping stuff into the graveyard, and letting you fish for enchantments. Maybe add some Satyr Wayfinders, too - to jam the graveyard as full as you can, as quick as you can. Maybe lose some of the instants and giant 8-drop defenders that you'll probably never see come out, and stuff a few more low-cost enchantment creatures in there to proc Strength from the Fallen. Hopeful Eidolon, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Boon Satyr, anything that'll trigger strength.

Say you've dumped 5 creatures in the graveyard between commune & wayfinder over a few turns, throw down a Nyx-Fleece Ram, give your turn 1 Lagonna-Band Trailblazer +5/+5, then a glaring aegis, another +5/+5 and +1/+3 with a +1/+1 counter - he's up to what - 12/18?. Nylea, God of the Hunt to proc strength again for another +5/+5 and give him trample. At that point, that little trailblazer's going to be a 17/23 trample - and it doesn't matter if he swings with the front end or the back.
