Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

Hey! First of all, I absolutely love the deck :) I like how you're making use of the hydra's! I do have some ideas though; first of all, I don't see how you're going to draw cards off of the Swans of Bryn Argoll, the damage source's controller gets to draw the card. Secondly, I believe you need some more mana ramp to get your hydra's to the field quicker! This also deals with the slow early game.
My suggestions are:Out:
+4 Arbor Elf
Let me know how the playtesting goes!

Hello everybody, back again with another rookie question.
I was playing with a friend of mine and we faced this situation:
Its his turn and I have 1 life left
He attacks me with two 2/2 creatures
I block one with a 2/2 lifelink creature (meaning its a 1/1 thats bestowed by Hopeful Eidolon )
Does the blocking creature do its damage, healing me for two and then I take two to the face. Going back to one.
Or do I take the damage before lifelink resolves and die?
Thanks in advance

You actually have a very strong lifegain package in this deck, with 11 out of 19 creatures providing lifegain, the Daybreak Coronet and Hopeful Eidolon giving it to whoever doesn't, plus your land Shambling Vent has it too, so in that regards, maybe Serra Ascendant? A fantastic 1 drop that you would love to voltron, especially if you get the ball rolling. And of course, in an enchant creature deck, don't ever forget about Kor Spiritdancer. Draw, and a low curve? I would advise losing the Hero of Iroas because he actually only affects Pillory of the Sleepless. Everything else is already unable to be cheapened, or not an aura, so he has no value, and replacing him with 4 Serra Ascendants or a split of 2/2 with Kor Spiritdancer would give you a great way to skyrocket your deck.

Good point about Greater Auramancy. It's definitely a cool card, but since it's shroud rather than hexproof and 11 of my creatures are enchantments themselves.
Looking at my mana curve my max cmc is 3, which isn't too bad since I rely on enchanting creatures anyways.
After just a real quick search I found some nice creatures that may take the spot of Underworld Coinsmith or MAYBE even Blood-Cursed Knight. The only enchantments I have that actually grant lifelink now are Daybreak Coronet and Hopeful Eidolon. The eidolon is mostly there as a decent 1 drop that wouldn't be wasted whether sitting on the battlefield or used as an enchantment.
Tormented Hero might actually have a spot in here being a 1 drop that fits the life draining theme I love so much. The only drawbacks are that he comes in tapped and my black mana is a little slower than my white as is right now.
I thank you all for the suggestions so far, combined minds can usually make a better deck than a single one. c:

Scratch that, would have to be Hopeful Eidolon which is just an extra 1/1. mb

Maybe Isamaru, Hound of Konda, Hopeful Eidolon, Lantern Kami, Mother of Runes, Soul Warden are some cards you may want to consider. I haven't checked if they're all Modern legal, but I hope these are some cards you think are neat. +1 from me, friend.

By my count it would get +8/+8 because Hopeful Eidolon counts for 1 counter and the Eidolon of Countless Battles also counts for 1 counter. With those 2 counters plus the 6 other creatures/auras would give a total +8/+8.
