Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

Looking good! There are a couple of suggestions I have though. Great to see Evolution Sage in there and I would consider putting in a few other spells with proliferate. It is a powerful effect. ( Grim Affliction , Planewide Celebration , Contagion Clasp , or Pollenbright Druid ). Also, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Winding Constrictor would be great includes. Another thing to think about is the commander potential of Anafenza herself. Tbh, her effect is not very strong. Ghave, Guru of Spores or a partner combo with Ravos, Soultender and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan might be better I feel. Possible cards to cut would be Prey Upon , Ordeal of Heliod , Grim Flayer , Reverent Hunter )

Other possible includes: Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Hooded Hydra , Death's Presence , Bloodspore Thrinax , Collective Effort , Fertilid .

Ordeal of Heliod is actually a god tier level card and i never even knew about its existence, im pretty sure i'll add it. Brave the Elements does sound better as well. Thanks for the input.

Looks good.

I suggest swapping Brave the Elements in place of Shelter , as the lower CMC will fit your mana-base better and its wide range makes lethal strikes more likely.

I think if you're playing very casual games, Saltskitter could be worth including up to 2x. However, I generally agree with wallisface's assessment. I'm guessing you're already aware of Norin the Wary and consider him too pricey. Norin would definitely be worth playing in this Soul Sisters style build, but would increase the cost quite a bit, as you'd really need good lands to make it consistent enough.

Ordeal of Heliod also comes to mind as a possible fit for this build.

Hope you're playtesting this!!

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

Alright so this is where things get difficult lol. Right now the deck has some semblance of agro and control but its currently being bogged down by things that don’t contribute anything or enough to warrant their spot. I’m going to suggest a lot of cuts and for each one I’ll offer a decent replacement that will not only make all of our lives miserable but also contribute to making the deck far more resilient and difficult to stop. Creatures to cut

Creatures to Add

Noncreature Spells to Cut

Noncreature Spells to Add

Now what these additions will do is smooth out your mana curve and make you come out swinging far more quickly in more consistently. The additions include another outlet to go infinite through Sword of Feast and Famine and Aggravated Assault . They also contain multiple ways to tutor up Helm of the Host and win. Combat Celebrant and Godo, Bandit Warlord each go infinite with helm and Godo will tutor for it himself and place it straight onto the battlefield.

We also tighten up your control package with cheap removal and creatures that limit what you’re opponents can do. I can provide more explanations in person if you like.

Remember these are only suggestions lol But if you try them I think you’ll like how much faster the deck pops off.

Looks pretty good. Might need a stronger wincon since you don't have any evasion. Also might benefit from more options in the sideboard. Below is a mix of suggestions appropriate for main and sideboards in no particular order.

Riot Control , Unbreakable Formation , Blessed Alliance , Celestial Purge , Sanctimony , Ordeal of Heliod , Nevermore , Teyo, the Shieldmage , Oblivion Ring , Pithing Needle , Chalice of Life  Flip, Abzan Falconer , Tuskguard Captain , Inspiring Call

Ordeal of Heliod , Ordeal of Thassa , Together Forever , and Triumph of Gerrard are all cheap enchantments that can give you multiple +1/+1 counters. The combo of Ordeal of Heliod and Sunbond is always fun if you can pull it off.

I would also probably cut some of the higher CMC creatures. Usually these decks run 3-4x each of Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant . Those are much better than Impassioned Orator since they're cheaper and trigger on opponent's creatures as well.

Ainok Bond-Kin doesn't seem worth it to me, since ideally Ajani's Pridemate will get big enough quickly that the first strike isn't very important.

I suspect Spectra Ward is too expensive to be of much help. Perhaps Ordeal of Heliod instead?
