Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

HehaGardenHoe on Greek Mariners (white/blue)

I Have some Suggestions:

adding 2x Sigiled Starfish, 3x Triton Shorestalker, and 3x Hopeful Eidolon

Removing 2x Mindreaver, 2-3x Hero of Iroas, 1x Shipbreaker Kraken, 1x Oppressive Rays, 1x Ordeal of Heliod, 1x Gift of Immortality, and 1-2x Daxos of Meletis

also Nimbus Naiad and Observant Alseid could help as well as Favored Hoplite

Note that there isn't really enough room for all my suggestions, so pick and choose the ones you like best

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.

Hypothetically, I have a Hopeful Eidolon in play, then cast Eidolon of Countless Battles for its bestow cost and enchant Hopeful Eidolon with it. Let's say I also have 6 other cards in play that qualify as creatures or auras. What is the total power and toughness of my Hopeful Eidolon with the Eidolon of Countless Battles attached?

Nice idea mate! It doesnt seem like you have early on answers though due to all the expensive enchantments. Maybe you'd wanna cut down some copies of the heavy cost ones and replace them with spells that buy you time like Kami of False Hope or some defenders, maybe even Hopeful Eidolon to fit the enchantment creature theme. Otherwise a nice idea! +1

one thing that will improve the quality of the deck drastically is to not use so many unique creatures instead of 24 different creatures stick to about 8 and just use 4 of each copy.just noticed Kitsune Mystic get more of those for a sideboard, imaging facing another enchant deck and stealing literally all their aura's for very low amounts of mana. kick the card count down to 60, and try running 21 lands (with 60 cards), take out karn since his final ability doesn't give you your aura's back and it literally takes up half the cost of the entire deck. you definitely need 4 Sunbond's, 4 Gift of Immortality's, 4 Ethereal Armor's. i also recommend 4 Hopeful Eidolon's to activate sunbond. if your deck is going to be super reliant on Heart of Light then get more of it but since its not likely to get out and has to get out with Hundred-Handed One or Guardian of the Gateless its a pretty bad card. While Sigil of the Empty Throne is nice it's usefulness is limited since it come out of turn 5 and at that point you should already be winning if you're going to win

You could go for the reaver and keep the spirit theme by including Hopeful Eidolon. And to go nuts with reaver even more, Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar could be your spirit of choice.

Something else for reaver, though neither in your colors nor a spirit, is Horizon Chimera
