Bestow 3W (If you cast this card for its bestow cost, it's an Aura spell with enchant creature. It becomes a creature again if it's not attached to a creature.
Enchanted creature gets +1/+1 and has lifelink.
It's not bad, but there are definately some cards that can be replaced. Fabled Hero in my opinion is a useless card for this type of deck, as is Hopeful Eidolon . You can remove these for Battlewise Hoplite , as the scry ability works wonders an an aggro deck. Bottom line is in the currect meta, your going to need at least 4 Brave the Elements and 3-4 Gods Willing , because if you cant protect your creatures, quit frankly your out of the game. Replacing Mizzium Skin with Brave the Elements would be a wise idea. Gift of Orzhova can definately be sideboarded for Murder Investigation , so even if your creature manages to die, your field remains full and you can burst your opponent down with 1/1 creatures. One last suggestion would be for Ordeal of Thassa , even though they get destroyed, the card draw works wonders in a deck like this. Adding in another land would be smart as well, you can get mana screwed super easy with 20 lands. Besides that looks solid dude, good luck (:
@Epochalyptik quick question since i was reading through this thread. In the case that an aura or enchantment attached is say a bestowed one such as Hopeful Eidolon when protection is gained from Gods Willing or Brave the Elements does he just fall off and become a creature rather than going to the graveyard?
Lifelink doesn't stack. It used to be worded that way, but it isn't now. Now it's a static ability, which instantaneously will gain you life whenever Hopeful Eidolon deals damage.
As a static ability, lifelink doesn't stack, so multiple copies of the same static abilities don't do anything; they're simply redundant. Same with trample, flying, deathtouch, hexproof, shroud, first strike, and double strike.
2 first strikes don't make a double strike. The two abilities are completely different except for the fact that they deal damage during the first strike combat step.
Dragon Mantle 's Firebreathing ability is an activated ability. Activated abilities require a cost. When you pay that cost once, you only get one copy of the activated ability. So no, paying R doesn't get you +2/+0.
I had a small 'argument' as always happens in MTG at my house. One of my friends tires to bestow a Hopeful Eidolon with another Hopeful Eidolon . Then he procedes to insist that Lifelink stacks and he should get 2x the life instead.
What is going on here and are there other abilities that stack that I need to know about?
Trample? Flying? Deathtouch? Hexproof? Shroud? these don't stack correct?
What about First strike and Double strike? Do 2 First strikes = Double strike?
How about firebreathing. If I have 2 [dragon mantle]] on a Rakdos Cackler does he get +2/+0 for every R?
I see the attraction of Hopeful Eidolon and agree with it but what about the idea of running Baleful Eidolon in addition to it? IMHO the deathtouch is a nice deterrent and serves well for removing smaller meat shields(thus saving the Merciless Eviction and Hero's Downfall for when you need them). I definitely like the idea though so +1 from me.
Well, i have found better cards for him but i would like to here what you would replace for Hopeful Eidolon ?
