Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

hi I suggest Children of Korlis Dazzling Reflection Path of Bravery Serene Steward Soul's Attendant Serra Avatar Sunbond Ordeal of Heliod Reverse Damage Chalice of Life  Flip and Suture Priest. I tried to keep the suggestions budget but if you want better cards that are less budget like Alhammarret's Archive and Boon Reflection go check out my black and white life drain

Some good lands are Orzhov Guildgate, Isolated Chapel, Temple of Silence, Vault of the Archangel, and Godless Shrine. I'd recommend at least 38 lands in a deck like this, but that's just my preference.

Some weaker cards in your deck: Victim of Night, Geth's Verdict, Chaplain's Blessing, Cradle of Vitality, Ordeal of Heliod, Gift of Orzhova, Celestial Mantle, Abuna Acolyte, and Malakir Cullblade

Some more suggestions: Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Burnished Hart, Orzhov Signet, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Lightning Greaves, and Swiftfoot Boots.

+1 from me! Also, here is a link to my Ayli deck, check it out. Ayli, Priestess of Broken Earth

Souljacker on Can't get this B/W Lifegain ...

If you only use it for the lifegain, I think there are better options. With tokens, you can think of cards like Path of Bravery, Vault of the Archangel (1 or 2), Tenacity, Ready / Willing, Whip of Erebos. If you want to try other colors and tokens, there's also Azorius Charm and Jeskai Charm that give all your creatures lifelink.

If you want to abuse Angelic Accord, maybe Bubbling Cauldron works nice if you have a lot of tokens. If you add Green, Brindle Boar is an easy way to trigger it, and Voracious Wurm likes all the lifegain too. Ordeal of Heliod is also a fun way to add a lot of life, and works well with creatures that can get counters on their own.

That's very helpful actually. I can see why you suggested the cuts. I still like Archon of the Triumvirate and Sentinel of the Eternal Watch (if only because they are helpful with multiplayer) but they have moved nearer to the cutting board. Aqueous Form, Hall of Triumph and Ordeal of Heliod really work better in my Voltron deck anyways, so those are easy cuts now that you point them out, especially because they won't survive the blinking (have never built a deck around this mechanic before).

Thank you. And feel free to keep cutting.
