I love Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Heliod , Heliod is great to keep you alive, especially since you can gain 10 life in the next turn (since casting it into a heroic creature will net one +1/+1 counter and attacking will net another one), I will probably keep Heliods as SB, to keep more aggressive decks at bay. Bioshif is there to move counter to my Fabled Hero , once he gets to 10/10 and I have a Gods Willing or Brave the Elements it's good game. Mizzium Skin is crazy good for heroic decks, I will fit it into the mainboard. As for Geist of Saint Traft it's an insanely good card, I really like it, but it's soooo expensive. This deck is a little budget, but I will get a couple of them ASAP.Thanks for your feedback :D

Ooo I like Cruel Feeding because it can grow if need be in end game. Maybe I will drop Ordeal of Heliod for it.

For Cruel Sadist I don't use her first ability. I use Sunbound or Ordeal of Heliod to put the counters on her and she keeps creatures at bay. I have a thing for her :).

looks good, here are some suggestions that will help your deck - Oreskos Sun Guide good life gain, Soulmender quik first turn +1 life, Ordeal of Heliod for +10 life and Spectra Ward for massive protection. Other than that for +1 me.

Try Soul Tithe and any number of Ordeal of Heliod

But the spell would still be under my control, so the destruction theme wouldn't work for me. Also, I can cast Celestial Mantle on turn 3 with Lotus Bloom . I kind of like Ordeal of Heliod ...but that way I take a minimum of 9 damage as opposed to the 4 from Celestial Mantle just doesn't seem like a good way to go. I really appreciate the ideas though...I may put it in the sideboard with something like Seraph of the Sword ...that would offset the damage damage and still make them lose lose 10th life...hmm...

Lol, hilarious idea! +1 from me.

But maybe you should have other things that force them to gain life? Celestial Mantle is a 6drop, that means you have to hold out until that time. Who knows what your opponent will do in that time?

Ordeal of Heliod seems okay since you can always make them attack you either with Basandra, Battle Seraph or Incite .

You could also try utility cards that destroy things for low mana, but give its controller some life.

I also might consider tossing an Ordeal of Heliod or a Dictate of Heliod or just heliod Price
