Aren't Temple of Plenty and Ordeal of Heliod rotating out?

Bakersoft I will remove Ordeal of Heliod and Cenn's Tactician. My main worry right now in swapping cards is having too high a mana curve with no turn one threat.

darleen I like that card, I'll throw it in and playtest a bit.

One card you should get your hands on, Battle Mastery. Also Valorous Stance is very useful as both a removal spell and a save-heroic trigger. If you can get your hands on a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest, he is very powerful in heroic decks.

I would take the Ordeal of Heliod out. It's O.K. you don't really need the life gain all that much with how aggressive you're trying to be. Try and find a way to get Gift of Immortality in your main. It's super powerful! Maybe take Cenn's Tactician out. He only applies to soldier cards which you can't guarantee will be on the field.

One more suggestion is acquire a Temple of Enlightenment. :)All in all I think the deck is solid and would be a formidable deck to play against. Check out my deck, it's somewhat similar! Shu Yun, the Silent but Deadly

You may consider Ordeal of Nylea or Ordeal of Heliod for more +1/+1 Counters, and maybe also Elite Scaleguard and all the other KTK Cards that boost all creatures with +1/+1 Counters(Abzan Falconer?). Since you are in green white, maybe also switch the Cached Defenses with Reap What Is Sown.of course, Fleecemane Lion is also a great green/white card.

Some Sunbond for the crazy Ordeal of Heliod combo?

Gift of Orzhova for flying/lifelinkers. Ordeal of Heliod for fatty life gain and free counters. Favored Hoplite or Fabled Hero for additional heroic bodies that get big, quick. Hoplite, especially, because he keeps the counters from spells cast on him and prevents damage that turn if you 'chanted him, combined with OoH for more free counters, plus Daybreak Coronet = fatty creature with mean enchantments. Just my 2 though. +1 from me.

mafokoko on Better Than A Bagel Aggro

Usually I depends on what type of control it is? If it's Esper Dragon: Stubborn Denial, Valorous Stance I might also side in Disdainful Stroke if it is a high CMC control deck. Against this I would sub out Aqueous Form, Dromoka's Command, Monastery Mentor... The unblockable is completely unneeded the Dromoka's Command abilities are completely useless and the Monastery Mentor is just too slow.

Against aggro I usually sub out Battlewise Hoplite for Seeker of the Way and 1 Ordeal of Thassa for 1 Ordeal of Heliod. Depending on the deck I may also side out Gods Willing for Glare of Heresy, Devouring Light.

So about the Hardened scales, I may take up that suggestion I like it, I will move the Myth Realized to sideboard because it is usually only good for control matchups.
