Hopeful Eidolon Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Grim Enchants

A W/B enchantment Pauper deck with Grim Guardian always appealed to me, so this list is pretty cool. A couple things:

Spiteful Returned is not pauper-legal. It has only been printed at uncommon. I'd probably replace with Hopeful Eidolon or Baleful Eidolon.

Pillory of the Sleepless is much stronger than Stab Wound. You want to maximize life drain while also removing the creature, which it executes far better than SW.

Including a copy or two of Unmake to the sideboard is strong backup removal in case your opponents are heavy on enchantment hate and your O-Rings no longer work.

Hopeful Eidolon maybe

This is a cool and interesting tempo deck. I am unsure that you will run into enough artifact and enchantments to have to maindeck Naturalize and Safewright Quest seems a little slow with 4 Commune with the Gods already maindecked.

I think the major opportunity is that this is a deck that looks to win with creatures attacking, and only has 13 to attack with. This might be a fun deck to try things like: Hopeful EidolonYoung WolfOreskos Swiftclaw

Basically just creatures that add value/damage for attacking

I only count 2 uncommons (2x Keen Sense), assuming that the random Artisan of Kozilek is a typo and not actually a card in your deck. Armadillo Cloak is a common.

I might opt for more Gladecover Scout and less Hopeful Eidolon, possibly moving the Eidolon into your sideboard. However, I'm not a Boggles player, so I could be wrong here.

Wild Growth is another option if you want more Utopia Sprawl-esque effects.

Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra might be worth considering.

I'm not a huge fan of cycling lands in aggro decks, since you want to be curving out, not spending time cashing in your lands for extra cards. Again, I could be wrong in this area.

You need to cut 2 cards, though having the random Artisan of Kozilek makes one cut easy.

If you need to get back your Enchantress, Eternal Witness is always a reasonable card.

Uril is da bomb! I wish you the best of luck in your endeavour. The deck already looks badass :) If you want more drawpower, there's Argothian Enchantress, Enchantress's Presence, and Femeref Enchantress.

Yavimaya Enchantress could be a monster in this deck.

Most things with bestow would be baller, especially Hopeful Eidolon and Ghostblade Eidolon.

Stay frosty!

Ordeal of Heliod is really just a bad card for modern. It is outclassed for example by Daybreak Coronet ... You should explore more for what enchantments there are since there are much better ones. I know that Daybreak Coronet is expensive but it could also be a solid replacement for your Hopeful Eidolon.

Also enchantment creatures are weak by themselves, but then expensive for a bestow. IMO it would be better to have more solid heroic creatures and stronger enchantments rather than trying to have some that do both...

Spirit Mantle offers a lot of good value against other aggro or creature decks

Splashing blue could also let you do a lot more with cards like Aqueous Form, Battlewise Hoplite, and I'm sure there are also probably better things than I just listed.

SaschMcFlash on White Heroic Auras

Rev_Lycan60 Hey, thank you for your suggestion! On one hand I like the idea that it can both knock out a creature and boost one, while also being an aura for Eidolon of Countless Battles. On the other hand though, not all Heroic creatures in this deck are humans and I cannot depend on my opponent not playing humans.

If I were to play Bonds of Faith I would most likely switch it out for Pacifism. But as it is, I prefer the latter. In case I don't draw Hopeful Eidolon (which I want to switch out for something else anyway) or Ordeal of Heliod the entire game, I want do make sure that the removal I play is unconditional. The deck needs to reliably be able to deal with big evasive creatures.

I don't think Gerrard Capashen is worth playing, especially if you're using Thalia's Lancers just to find him. I'd rather have some more ways to benefit from life-gain. Adding more Ajani's Pridemate or Sunbond will give you more board presence and make Wall of Reverence better. Add in some way to grant lifelink like Hopeful Eidolon, and the cycle gets pretty vicious. You might also consider dipping into black for drain cards like Vizkopa Guildmage and Sanguine Bond. It might be wise to try and fill the gap at 2 and 3 mana as well. Lone Rider  Flip is one card that could fit there.
