How are you able to cast two Ordeal of Heliods on turn three with 3 plains?

Ordeal of Heliod is a no for a similar reason as Champion of the Parish. Both are strong cards on their own. However, the time to ramp up and WHAT it ramps up makes the difference. Ordeal of Heliod trades my Voltron speed and free will to attack (I want to attack when it's on my creature) for some life, which is nice, but the main focus is getting in the face of the enemy and killing them fast.

PierreThePlaneswalker I forgot about that card! Very good and has flavor in terms of the deck. I might try including it.

Oh, and maybe move the Ordeal of Heliod into side or mainboard.

Honestly, I do think it would work better with a few less spells but if I were going to cut creatures I think it would be Hero of Iroas.

The only two Auras aren't really worth shaving only 1 off of. Ordeal of Heliod is already cheap and unless you have 3 hero's out Spectra Ward is always gonna be too expensive with only 20 lands. I would suggest taking two Hero's and both Spectra wards out for 4 Seekers. Seeker is just so useful in a deck like this.

The best combo was Sun Titan + Ordeal of Thassa/Ordeal of Heliod. It's unfortunate that Sun Titan isn't legal, it's such a good card.

Not sure what you mean by "combos" here, and a turn 5 kill is nothing worth bragging about, sadly. If you want to go Heroic, consider going into W/U instead, using things like Aqueous Form, Battlewise Hoplite, Center Soul, Feat of Resistance, etc. to gain some consistency over what you have right now. Also, Ordeal of Heliod, Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea all give HUGE benefits to Heroic decks, giving you a guaranteed 2 +1/+1 counters on any Heroic creature.

BTW, you don't have any combos in this deck. You have strong synergies, but no true combos. Most "combos" ultimately win the game (Pestermite + Splinter Twin , Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond , etc.) or provide insurmountable advantage (Derevi, Empyrial Tactician + Stasis , Bitterblossom + Contamination , Food Chain + Misthollow Griffin ). These are all examples of simple, 2 card combos, when in reality combos can stretch into many more cards. I won't go into that now, but suffice to say your deck is more aggro than combo. Keep that in mind when labeling decks, some people will treat mislabeling your decks very, very harshly (as I had the misfortune to learn when I first started on Tappedout).

Glory is a sick card to protect your whole team over and over again. I also have a Captain of the Watch I could give you, she's sick and Increasing Devotion is a definite inclusion, as is Mirror Entity which I also have one of somewhere...OH and Intangible Virtue is great. Darien, King of Kjeldor is also pretty cool. And Devout Invocation and Storm Herd are just straight ridiculous.

If you're looking for things to cut I'd suggest Herald of Dromoka, Phalanx Leader, Knightly Valor, Ordeal of Heliod and Vanquish the Foul. Everything else seems super sick.

None of those cards is essential for the deck. Tranquil Cove is a functional reprint of Sejiri Refuge and is legal. Auramancer + Ordeal of Thassa or Ordeal of Heliod seems cool though.
