Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

True, the lifegain combo wouldn't work as well here. The spirits I'm constructing possess a lot more lifegain so i can usually get Ordeal of Heliod + Sunbond to proc the turn I drop them. I do love your Eldrazi Conscription Combo and will probably put a copy in my deck

I don't know how well you've kept up on this deck now that it's a year later but the brand new Rattlechains is amazing for any spirit deck and there's no reason not to have at least 1. Also my favorite combo with the wisp is Ordeal of Heliod + Sunbond

Nice deck! I would recommend either dropping your Hero of Iroas or running more auras to make him worth his spot.

If you choose not to run him, you could include Ordeal of Heliod+Sunbond and things like Indestructibility, but doing this would change the focus of the deck almost entirely, so you would be better off not. Also, if you do run enchantments, run Ethereal Armor.

Another option would be to have an enchantment setup in the sideboard so you can mix things up whenever you want.

Keep up the good work! +1

If you want a couple more options to give your creatures evasion besides Rancor, consider Launch and/or Gryff's Boon. I don't think Ordeal of Nylea is doing as much as it can for your deck. As is, it seems to me like a slightly worse version of Ordeal of Thassa for what you have going on. Even Ordeal of Heliod could be better in this spot (it's a very powerful effect if you can trigger it whenever you want).

If you want to get more use out of the stuff in your graveyard, maybe consider Nature's Kiss, Cantivore, or Mystic Enforcer. Of your creatures, I think Thaumatog is the weakest one, though I understand why it's in the deck.

If you want to get silly with a big finish, maybe consider Replenish/Open the Vaults as a 1-2 of.

Nice. +1.

A few cards you may not already have considered:

Abzan Falconer - pump your Blademasters and Freeblades and give them flying!

Scout's Warning - Something for the sideboard...

Gods Willing, Faith's Shield, Brave the Elements, Sejiri Steppe - back up protection options for when you can't flicker the Evangel.

Windbrisk Heights - 1x could be a useful land Ordeal of Heliod

Celestial Flare, Geth's Verdict - useful in the sideboard against hexproof and indestructibles.

Pithing Needle - sideboard against planeswalkers and much more.

Ordeal of Heliod would be good. It would net a Pridemate two more +1/+1 counters, and give you instant Serra Ascendant activation.

frostdiggity Oh, nice! I love finding out about cards I haven't seen before. Though you might want to swap out a couple of the Gods Willings. There's such a thing as too much protection after all.

Another thing I was reminded of that you might consider is Ordeal of Heliod. The Ordeals are some of my favorite enchantments and they synergize really well with abilities like Heroic and Renown that help you get to that third counter sacrifice effect a bit quicker. There's really nothing quite like swinging on turn 2 with a 3/4 Favored Hoplite that they can't even damage, then following up next turn with a 4/5 and gaining 10 life, all for 3 mana total. But I digress; whether or not you take my suggestions, I have to say I love the deck you've come up with here.
