I had Ordeal of Heliod in this deck at one point, but you may be right that it would be of more help in certain matchups. The Ordeal of Purphoros is ideal for this deck, as it can remove any weenies that might be in your way, or just tag on an additional 3 damage to the opponent where 3 damage can go a long way against a deck like this.

The one thing that keeps me in some games where I don't get the best draw is life gain through the Hopeful Eidolon , so I can see where the Ordeal of Heliod might be more useful on some occasions. I've got a couple Brave the Elements in my sideboard already for extra protection if up against heavy removal. I might need to increase the number though.

If you have problems with a burn deck maybe by having more life you could solve the problem try to use Hopeful Eidolon s bestow on one of your creatures.

I playtested your deck twice, but the first game didn't show off much except for that you might need another land (you really don't).

The second game was far more interesting. Turn 2 Hero of Iroas into turn 3 Hopeful Eidolon bestowed. The lifegain was great, but the damage sadly doesn't fight against 2 Courser of Kruphix . After awhile, you bestowed more creatures onto hero, but Blood Baron of Vizkopa was helping me stabilize. After some time, i finally killed your blasted hero's away and it was a slow game of killing you with the baron.

Somethings that i liked about your deck. It was efficient and the idea was a good one. Having a turn 3 4/4 lifelink sucked to deal with. Pumping other creatures up and having an entire army is great, when it works.

Like all decks, there were some problems. Lack of removal was the biggest contender. If you could've killed the Courser of Kruphix , Xenagos, The Reveler , or Ajani Steadfast , then the game would've been much different. You have four instant speed removal spells, 2 of them don't kill each time. I would definitely add Celestial Flare to deal with the pro w/b creatures plus getting the bigger creatures that Bile Blight in particular.

I hope that i was helpful in you deckbuilding process and refining you deck that for it wins more games.

The deck that i used to play against your deck is Lingering Jund M15.

I honestly don't care much for upvotes. But if you insist, make sure to get Mono U Clique (voltron/control) (i have to change the name, if you were wondering)

I would suggest adding the Hopeful Eidolon from the maybe board and if you do Eidolon of Countless Battles is just stupid with enchantment creatures. Plus the life gain would help your deck. I have an aggro post rotation build that runs black that I would like you to look at. Black White Aggro Post Rotation

Remember, your theme is aggressive and deathtouch. You need to follow that theme to make the deck consistent. people hate blocking deathtouch creatures and losing big guys to little ones... If you keep pumping them out, you can have a combination of offense and defense to work with. Add in Dictate of Erebos and you made the trade 2:1 in your favor. Also, adding in dual lands gives you more chances for the right color mana, in the situation of the pain lands, you can use them for colorless as well for free, which would be in the case of your larger creatures. If you really need the life, you could add in Whip of Erebos

remove: Hopeful Eidolon , Ajani Steadfast , Ranger's Guile , Skybind , Divine Favor , Triplicate Spirits , Raise the Alarm , Aegis of the Gods

add: Sedge Scorpion , Dictate of Erebos , Sylvan Caryatid , Setessan Tactics , Mana Confluence , Caves of Koilos , Llanowar Wastes , more Boon Satyr , more Master of the Feast , more Pharika, God of Affliction

@ESTABAUSS: Thank you very much. I'll definitely consider Hopeful Eidolon and Spirit of the Labyrinth . The Spirit could even fare quite well in the sideboard against cards like Chasm Skulker .

This is an awesome look at rotation ready white weenie. I I were you I would think about more enchantment creatures for Eidolon of Countless Battles like Hopeful Eidolon and Spirit of the Labyrinth If you want to add red take a look at my post rotation deck that focuses more on Anax and Cymede .

Any thoughts on removing anything for a few Hopeful Eidolon as a cheap start, Heroic enabler on Phalanx Leader, and a chance for a bit of lifegain to even out totals? Price
