Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

Since Bruna can afford to go wider as she can take enchantments off creatures that can be early threats I'd suggest adding more of those types of creatures in here. Also maybe some more bestow cards too. I get that Bruna can't get bestow creatures from the graveyard or the hand, but they can still be powerful. Here are some suggestions creatures: Graceblade Artisan, Blessed Spirits, Meletis Astronomer, Boonweaver Giant, Ghostblade Eidolon, Hopeful Eidolon enchantments: Daybreak Coronet, Guildscorn Ward (I dunno about this one. Seems kinda legit), Invisibility (to add further evasion), Invocation of Saint Traft, Murder Investigation (can help to shut down sac stuff), Commander's Authority (same thing), Mammoth Umbra other: Retether (I know it seems kinda redundant, but it could come in handy if Bruna keeps getting killed and you can't get her back). There might be some more stuff out there and this is by no means a "must include" list. I love the deck and I wanna see it in real life. Kinda makes me want to find me a good U/W commander deck to fall in love with and build. Maybe in the future. Anyway, good deck and good luck.

ajstorey456...You are right, Cleric of the Forward Order does not cost , I got the mana cost confused with another card. Please don't take my suggestions as an insult about the deck archetype as it was not meant that way. I did not realize that the tactic you were trying to employ was a board state stall method.

The Boros lifeburn deck that I put together some months back ran 4 copies of Soulfire Grand Master and utilized burn spells like Stoke the Flames, Lightning Strike, and Magma Jet. I could gain life from practically every spell and essentially buy them all back late game with the second ability.

The other half of the deck were cards that gave lifelink like Hopeful Eidolon, Seeker of the Way, and Dawnbringer Charioteers that I then paired with pseudo removal cards like Fall of the Hammer and Tail Slash. Needless to say, while every game would get me upwards of 50 to 60 life, my board state didn't allow me to actually defeat my opponent. Granted, Felidar Sovereign wasn't in the format at the time.

metalevolence on Cartel Aristocrat: Can't Touch This (SPC)

This deck is very cool and has nice potential, just needs some tuning. I really like how hard it is to remove cartel aristocrat, since all wraths in the format are damage based, and she avoids edicts by having tokens around!

(I have to say the choice of 60 card decks as opposed to 99 seems weird to me, but whatever steams your broccoli.)

Overall the changes I would make first would look like this:

Out: guardians of akrasa, seller of songbirds, suture priest, perilous myr, soul warden, soul's attendant, carrion feeder, aven squire, unholy strength, beckon apparition, fortify, 1 plains, 1 swamp

In: Orzhov Basilica, Bojuka Bog, Heliod's Pilgrim, Vulturous Aven, Mark of the Vampire, Wordmail, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Reliquary Monk, Pilgrim's Eye, Duty-Bound Dead, Cranial Plating, Ancient Den, Vault of Whispers

Sultai Emissary is another 2 bodies for 2 mana card. You can also look for dorks with nice ETB or dies effects like Pilgrim's Eye, Black Cat, Liliana's Specter, Chittering Rats. I would also look for playable 1 drops just because being able to drop your commander turn 2 with protection backup is really good.

Heliod's Pilgrim can tutor a voltron piece like edge of the divinity, then be sacrificed. You could also use Totem-Guide Hartebeest but cheaper is definitely better. You could also rebuy enchantments with Auramancer and Griffin Dreamfinder which would be extra cute if you ran Font of Return or Soul Stair Expedition.

Vulturous Aven seems good here, possibly Altar's Reap too.

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is always pretty bombtacular in multiplayer.

Death Denied is crazy card advanatage.

Graveyard hate like Bojuka Bog, Nihil Spellbomb and Cremate are essential. I don't mind beckon apparition but I think putting a land in play or drawing a card is worth more than a token.

You can sacrifice Faceless Butcher with its trigger on the stack to exile a creature forever.

Your land count is a bit low.

There are probably better voltron pieces you could be running, and I would focus more on voltron than token swarm. Some possibilities are Adventuring Gear, Mark of the Vampire, Empyrial Armor, Hopeful Eidolon, Ethereal Armor, Wordmail (if you don't mind unglued,) and Abzan Runemark. You can run Cranial Plating and switch out 2 basics for artifact lands to power it up. Your commander is cheap and starts attacking early enough that even explorer's scope might be good.

I've been brewing a lot of pauper EDH recently, you can check them out here if you found this comment interesting. Cheers.

It's not exactly Hopeful Eidolon into Madcap Skills like last time but it will do.

Yeah, dude. Hopeful Eidolon on turn-1 was great if you could pump it, but Bestowing it on something bigger usually made the game a runaway.

Hopeful Eidolon was an awesome card.

@xcn: Bruh that Nivix Cyclops deck was sweet. But Hopeful Eidolon and Ethereal Armor somehow wound up being good. Who knew?

Pauper Boros Enchantments from RTR-THS Standard was so busted. haha

Who knew Hopeful Eidolon + Furor of the Bitten + Ethereal Armor would wind up being pretty strong after all?

You might as well make a deck and put it up to the challenge.
