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.
My first take just to brainstorm is that for "midrange" you have a lot of small things, Hopeful Eidolon Pharika's Chosen and Underworld Coinsmith . Most "midrange" would cut those to favor more removal. It could just be what your trying to go for I'm not totally sure .
i'd cut 2 lands Akroan Horse Precinct Captain and Soldier of the Pantheon and 1 Hopeful Eidolon that will bring you to 60 and get rid of some of the cards that you only have 1 copy of and me personally I like consistancy and really never like running one copy
@eslaton7751 Thanks for the advice. I see what you are saying so I've tried to remove as many enchantments as possible. Added Boon Satyr as my bestowable. Also added Hopeful Eidolon and Ethereal Armor . The risk for 2-for-1 is there, but if my board state is where it should be, I'll either draw cards or gain life off of it anyway, and with this build, Ethereal Armor is almost always a BIG DEAL.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion is soooooo out of place in this deck. 20-land decks can't be running 6 drops and expect to play them. If you plan on keeping this at 20 lands, you're highest drop needs to be 3. Also, Hero of Iroas is 100x better than Phalanx Leader . I do however think in this deck you should run both. Akroan Skyguard is quite subpar. I'd lose the Archetype of Aggression since its out of place. If you really want to run a god, I'd go 2x Iroas, God of Victory , but nothing else (you'd then have to go some lands). As far as enchantments: Chained to the Rocks , Ethereal Armor Madcap Skills , Nyxborn Shieldmate , and possibly Hopeful Eidolon . Use creatures that can spawn tokens (Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Precinct Captain , Akroan Crusader ), and Phalanx Leader to buff them up. Enchantments are the best way to do this, but having some instants would be good to.
I like the deck! I'm trying to do something similar with my deck Ferrier of Damned Souls.
I will have to try and test the Brain Maggot in my own deck.
This may sound weird, but I chose to run Hero's Downfall over Banishing Light because after game 1, they are going to side in every type of enchantment hate they can get their hands on. Hero's Downfall give me permanent removal even if it does have a few less options.
Love this deck. Might make a version myself with a credit to you. My suggestion would be to add 3x Gods Willing or Brave the Elements over Whip of Erebos in order to make your double striker unblockable for your big swing. Also might want to look in to another suitable 1 drop like Gnarled Scarhide that you can pump so you don't have to rely on Hopeful Eidolon for your turn-3 win.
