Mortal's Ardor Discussion

I prefer just using Mortal's Ardor on the Boros Reckoner, then playing the Volcano Hellion. Who needs infinite life, when you only need enough to win?

I like the deck.

Let's say that i have a Boros Reckoner on the battlefield and my opponent have a 3/3 creature attacking, so i give Reckoner Lifelink and +1/+1 with Mortal's Ardor and block the 3/3 creature. I heal 4 at the damage step and then Boros Reckoner ability triggers and i choose 3 damage to go to my opponent. Do i heal for 3 because Reckoner had lifelink until end of turn??

if you can, maybe go to 4x Swift Justice and lose Mortal's Ardor, because the first strike makes your main attackers (Nest Robber, Raptor Companion) even more effective.

Expedite is definitely decent for card draw. I would also suggest Mortal's Ardor as an inexpensive combat trick that keeps with the Greek theme.

Okay, so first things first you should look to focus the deck more, having a ton of one-of creatures makes the deck inconsistent. Rise of Eagles and Triplicate Spirits are just too expensive to be good, Spectral Procession, or if you splash black which works better with tokens anyway Lingering Souls, do the same thing for cheaper. With blue however Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun and Aven Wind Guide are two cards from Amonkhet that are worth a look.

Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip and Crusader of Odric are cheaper Seraphs that come down quickly. Drop the enchantments and focus on team boosting with stuff like Honor of the Pure. The green in this deck can come out completely it isn't necessary.

Your buff cards like Mortal's Ardor take up spots that can be devoted to removal such as Cast Out, ideally you want Path to Exile but Cast Out is more budget friendly. Also Traveler's Amulet is pretty useless here as in tokens you ideally are not playing any expensive creatures.

Squadron Hawk is another card that could be interesting in your deck.

Infiltrate and Shadow Rift are great spells to this strategy. Also, Swift Justice seem better than Mortal's Ardor.
