Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

Why not Murderous Rider instead of Murder ? It targets planeswalkers and gives you a 2/3 lifelink knight you can cast later.

There are a lot of under-powered cards in this deck. I understand if you're trying to keep it budget, and if you really are then just ignore me, but if you want to make it competitive, I'd recommend removing the following cards: Ardenvale Paladin , Barrow Witches , Knight of New Benalia (which isn't standard legal), Knight of the Keep , Lonesome Unicorn , Serra's Guardian (doesn't seem to fit the deck), All That Glitters , Ordeal of Heliod (also not standard-legal), Silverflame Ritual . That's frankly most of your deck, and I didn't include some cards that are kind of iffy. Check out some other orzhov knights lists, and try to get high power cards. My baseline for what card is worth the mana to cast it is that one mana gets you one power and one toughness (so a 1/1 is one mana, a 2/2 is two, etc.) really that's a low-level of power, so anything below that should never be used unless it has an ability that makes it worth it.

Like I said, if you're just playing casually and don't want to spend much money, ignore this comment completely because it's more for a competitive deck.

Used to play a blue red version of this back in standard, Stubborn Denial ing and Swan Song ing opponents Anger of the Gods . Used Akroan Crusader , it allowed me to go wide and have insurance in case my heroic creature died and I needed a body to drop enchantments on. His tokens have haste which is a nice touch. It forces them to have a sweeper early on. It also allowed me to consistently cast a playset Stoke the Flames , often for free, giving me a surprise late game finisher. I'd highly suggest trying out Akroan Crusader/Stoke the Flames package.

Also, some other worth considering, Dragon Mantle is a nice enchantment that replaces itself. Ordeal of Purphoros can make even your one drops and tokens huge and can kill a blocker or close out a game. Even on just a Swiftspear it's quite good. Ordeal of Heliod could be quite good in the sideboard for aggro mirrors.

Rally the Ancestors is on-theme, while Zulaport Cutthroat / Kalastria Healer enables an aristocrats theme.

This lets you lower the overall CMC of the deck- in modern playing more creatures quickly is basically mandatory unless you are packing a lot of powerful disruption.

Skipping that, lets look at flat upgrades and options from modern. Unearth is better than raise dead. Honor of the Pure will almost always be better as another ally creature. Ordeal of Heliod is cute lifegain, but since most lifegain is intended for burn, it getting countered by a Searing Blaze hurts bad. Ondu Cleric will perform its role excellently.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir is the most efficient ally 'lord', even if they aren't a lord. Flying is super relevant too. Still, it being good makes it expensive.

Past that, naming ally for tribal lands is good. Unclaimed Territory and fixing like Beastcaller Savant gives access to the rest of the cheaper allies and will be the most efficient way to spend your budget- Jwari Shapeshifter and Oran-Rief Survivalist will go a long way to taking it from 'casual funstuff' to 'strong casual stuff'.

Ordeal of Xenagos

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant creature

Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then, if there are three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice ~.

When you sacrifice ~, untap up to three target lands. Until end of turn, they gain "Whenever this land becomes tapped, it deals 1 damage to any target."


Another ordeal a la Ordeal of Thassa or Ordeal of Heliod

Looking good! There are a couple of suggestions I have though. Great to see Evolution Sage in there and I would consider putting in a few other spells with proliferate. It is a powerful effect. ( Grim Affliction , Planewide Celebration , Contagion Clasp , or Pollenbright Druid ). Also, Pir, Imaginative Rascal and Winding Constrictor would be great includes. Another thing to think about is the commander potential of Anafenza herself. Tbh, her effect is not very strong. Ghave, Guru of Spores or a partner combo with Ravos, Soultender and Reyhan, Last of the Abzan might be better I feel. Possible cards to cut would be Prey Upon , Ordeal of Heliod , Grim Flayer , Reverent Hunter )

Other possible includes: Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Hooded Hydra , Death's Presence , Bloodspore Thrinax , Collective Effort , Fertilid .

Ordeal of Heliod is actually a god tier level card and i never even knew about its existence, im pretty sure i'll add it. Brave the Elements does sound better as well. Thanks for the input.

Looks good.

I suggest swapping Brave the Elements in place of Shelter , as the lower CMC will fit your mana-base better and its wide range makes lethal strikes more likely.

I think if you're playing very casual games, Saltskitter could be worth including up to 2x. However, I generally agree with wallisface's assessment. I'm guessing you're already aware of Norin the Wary and consider him too pricey. Norin would definitely be worth playing in this Soul Sisters style build, but would increase the cost quite a bit, as you'd really need good lands to make it consistent enough.

Ordeal of Heliod also comes to mind as a possible fit for this build.

Hope you're playtesting this!!
