Hopeful Eidolon Discussion
1 week ago
Attention Manifesters! I've made a few changes to the list, including -- Dude_3 will be happy to know -- swapping out Hopeful Eidolon for Aven Skirmisher. Anafenza + fliers = good times. I have been trying to make it work with Geist of the Moors (it's like a white super-Herald of Torment here!) but the fact is the deck works best when it can really flood the board with creatures, and as far as devotion goes 3x 1/1s for each are better than a single 3/1 for 1. I've upped the land count to 23 because while the deck can run on 3 mana, it can't on 2, and that was happening more than I'd like. I've also removed Avacyn, Guardian Angel, who was great but wasn't really pulling her weight, lowered the black mana sources by 2, and made a couple of tweaks to the sideboard, including the addition of 3x Doomwake Giant, which is very castable here, and absolutely wrecks a lot of token and aggro decks without compromising the devotion too much.
I'm working on a detailed sideboard guide if anyone's interested. Keep your eyes out.

i think cards that just gain you life like Sunspring Expedition Rest for the Weary Whitesun's Passage aren't helpful and should be replaced with some more removal like Oblivion Ring or cards that do more than just gain life like Kemba's Skyguard Solemn Offering Aven Riftwatcher also consider Hopeful Eidolon+Ethereal Armor to give your deck some explosiveness

That's what I thought, too, but I'm telling you, most of those cheap white creatures absolutely suck as top decks later in the game. Ruthless Ripper is a great card, but it totally doesn't fit here. 1 drops are point for point THE most efficient producers of devotion. Seriously, what are you going to do with a Phalanx Leader on turn 6? Nothing. Hopeful Eidolon doesn't seem like a good card, but you can bestow him, which gives any of your creatures lifelink AND produces persistent devotion on turn 4, OR it's a 1/1 life linker that you can play turn 1 if you don't draw Soldier of the Pantheon and build up with Anafenza or Citadel Siege. Trust me, it matters.

have you spells from the born of the gods or theros blocks with the Bestow aura. with the utility/drawback of being enchament creatures that can function as aura spells to either empower your commander or be played by themselves.
Eidolon of Countless Battles number one bestow critter for your deck i can suggest as it is an etherial armor for aura enchantments, and can function on its own if your commander is removed from play.
also a good spell would be Kor Spiritdancer to allow all of your aura spells to replace themselves in your hand.

I have a similar deck, without the expensive Kor Spiritdancer.

I know most of us still have yet to get off the Seeker of the Way hype train, but with a Hero of Iroas on the field, I'd much rather pay the 1 extra mana to bestow a Hopeful Eidolon on my hoplite or fabled hero.

I'd switch out Chosen by Heliod, Mortal Obstinacy and Divine Favor for cards like Ordeal of Purphoros, Chained to the Rocks, Mogis's Warhound and possibly Inferno Fist, Eidolon of Countless Battles and Hopeful Eidolon for the sideboard

+1 for rocking heroic! Awesome mechanic that I think is way powerful for the format, as it rewards you for deploy and protect tactics. I think of any of the heroic creatures you should rock, Phalanx Leader should be there! The potential to get your creatures (and tokens) fairly big is good stuff.
Finally, to get more triggers for heroic, bestow seems like a great place to meet in the middle on spells and creatures. Eidolon of Countless Battles, Everflame Eidolon, Nyxborn Rollicker, Hopeful Eidolon, and maybe Ghostblade Eidolon could help out.
Cheers to a fun deck. Hope this spurs some ideas for you =]
