Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Heliod.
When you sacrifice Ordeal of Heliod, you gain 10 life.
Ordeal of Heliod Works well because often time creature will already have a 1/1 counter then you can play it on them adding another counter then swing to get the third so often times it 2 mana for 2 counters and 10 life
Just a heads up, your title should be U/W Heroic. B/W would be black/White. Other than that, looks cool. Just wondering how Ordeal of Heliod goes?
Thanks JediCreed94, I went with Azorius because the tri color land thing is so expensive and inconsistent. I do wish that I could use Mantis Rider though, he is a bad ass. I considered the Ordeals, but they are fairly slow and I only have one Heroic card. I would have to replace Sunbond and it is a card that just builds so much momentum that I can earn double or triple the amount of life that Ordeal of Heliod gets in the three turns it takes to trigger.
The closest FNM to me is over an hour away so I never go, it would be great to get some feedback on how this plays.
Lifegain is a huge killer in the meta right now. That was a great analysis on Literally Khan't Even, and I can't wait to see how this one plays. Why no Ordeal of Heliod though?
Ordeal of Heliod is also a decent option in my opinion. I plan on building a deck like this.
@xarop_pa_toss - Cheers for the +1! Fabled Hero is definitely a powerhouse, but he still feels too slow vs 3-mana removal like Hero's Downfall if I have to tap out for him. Getting out Battlewise Hoplite or Hero of Iroas on turn 2 and being able to protect them on turn 3 feels so much safer. I am considering Fabled Hero in the sideboard, but I'm not sure that there is a match up that he dominates.
Sunbond is a bit underwhelming considering that my only lifegain in this deck comes from Ordeal of Heliod. I could add something like Mortal's Ardor if I went for more of a lifelink theme, but that would require a pretty big deck change that I'm not sure if worth it.
Phalanx Leader will get added to the maybeboard. With such a low creature count, I could prefer having a cheaper and arguably better creature like Favored Hoplite out, but I may end up raising the creature count and then Phalanx Leader would become much better.
@cjk191997 - Done. Thanks again for the suggestion!
Yea I think dropping green would be best. That way you could replace those 6 green spells with 4x Defiant Strike and 2 more Feat of Resistance. Also not sold on Glimpse the Sun God. Think another heroic triggering instant would be better, or maybe even Ordeal of Heliod
13digits, What I have tested, Hardened Scales and Solidarity of Heroes are the best cards to have in heroic deck. What comes to the latter one, remember: heroic ability triggers first, then you get to double the counters. If you have Hardened Scales, it will trigger before the doubling too. With these cards I had 30+/30+ soldier with protection from selected color in T4. Glimpse the Sun God doesn't make any sense and Ordeal of Heliod works better in Azorius heroic aura decks. But yeah, that's just my opinion.
