+1 for rocking heroic! Awesome mechanic that I think is way powerful for the format, as it rewards you for deploy and protect tactics. I think of any of the heroic creatures you should rock, Phalanx Leader should be there! The potential to get your creatures (and tokens) fairly big is good stuff.

If cost is not an issue, maybe throw a Brimaz, King of Oreskos or Goblin Rabblemaster in for more token potential?

Also a fan of Signal Pest, Accorder Paladin, or Goblin Wardriver. The pump can make a huge difference with tokens in play.

Finally, to get more triggers for heroic, bestow seems like a great place to meet in the middle on spells and creatures. Eidolon of Countless Battles, Everflame Eidolon, Nyxborn Rollicker, Hopeful Eidolon, and maybe Ghostblade Eidolon could help out.

Cheers to a fun deck. Hope this spurs some ideas for you =]

Sorry for the multiple comments.

If we decide to try giving our "big" creatures protection and then focus on life gain to trigger their abilities, here are some cards I've been looking at: Hopeful Eidolon, Sunbond, maybe something like Glimpse the Sun God + Oreskos Sun Guide + Soulmender , and Soldier of the Pantheon.

Not sure if any of those ideas is good.

Well, I still think Hopeful Eidolon is something to consider.

I don't have much experience competitively, but I run a variant of this deck, and I've been really happy with Hopeful Eidolon. It can be played early on or saved later to enchant a bigger creature. I would probably take out the Heliod's Pilgrims for them, because is it that important to find enchantments?

I really like this idea as two colors. Keeps costs down and opens up so many more things. My biggest issue is the apparent lack of attackers. At a glance, I'd remove Hopeful Eidolon for Master of the Feast or Herald of Torment. Probably the Herald, since you can make up the life loss really easily, and he's not an immediate removal target or giving card advantage like the Master. I'd also run a full set of the Brain Maggots for removal. I'm also not sure about Ordeal of Heliod, I think other enchantments might be better, since it doesn't look like you need the life gain. Maybe get rid of the Ordeals for 2 more Banishing Light, and then one more of both the ram and the maggot.

I'd disagree on their being too many tap lands. Most decks run between 8 and 11, and this deck only runs 7. It also provides color fixing, to guarantee i have mana of both colors at any given point.

And yes, Hopeful Eidolon is a sadly under-rated card. Especially in a deck taking advantage of something like Hero of Iroas.
