Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

Dacheat on White/Green Daghatar Heroic

11 hours ago

@square711 I thought about Ranger's Guile, but I think I need to play test whether or not I need it against most decks. I will probably sideboard it for use against heavy control decks.

Tuskguard Captain and it's lifelink counterpart were two creatures that I considered, but I'm not so sure I need it in every matchup. Again, it's something that I will probably sideboard against token decks.

Crackling Doom does give me trouble, but I guess I'll just have to deal with it. Or splash blue for counterspells.

Ordeal of Nylea is pretty central to my strategy so I'm not too keen on taking it out. I need it to grab Forests to fuel Daghatar the Adamant's ability, and I can't fetch dual lands with it. Ordeal of Heliod is something I'd be willing to talk about replacing, and probably the first thing to go when I'm sideboarding things out.

Sunbond is not something that I'd thought about, and would definitely be a good combo with Ordeal of Heliod. I'm definitely going to try it out.

@ATREYUty I'm not really understanding the Godsend suggestions aside from it being a good card in general.

Boon Satyr is a good suggestion, but too expensive to bestow I think. Same goes for the rest of the enchantment creatures. If I was running a deck specifically for enchantments I could make it work, but I don't think going half heroic/half constellation is the way to go.

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is a card I want, but I'm not sure if I want to shell out the cash for him. I will probably end up getting one though.

As for Daghatar, you're right he might not be the best fit, but I do at least want to try him because I really like his ability.

Yeah I tried it out at FNM. I'm trying to think of a spot for Ordeal of Thassa, but I'm definitely adding Ordeal of Heliod and Erase to my sideboard for mirror matches.

I'll check out your deck.

I don't think a red splash would do any good. You could go after a mono-white heroic build with the defiant strikes. Add cards like Favored Hoplite, Hero of Iroas, and Ordeal of Heliod. I took that kind of build to Game day Tarkir and placed 5th

You should run some Ranger's Guile for added protection (or even better, Valorous Stance), and Tuskguard Captain for trample. If your entire strategy revolves around buffing a creature and kicking the opponent in the nuts with it, you gotta make sure NOTHING will get in its way, be it removal or chump blocking (Crackling Doom will still screw you up, though). To make room for those cards, I suggest you take out Ordeal of Nylea and add some dual lands (Temple of Plenty, Blossoming Sands or, if money isn't an issue, Mana Confluence), because you're not running any overly expensive creatures, so the mana fixing the Ordeal provides isn't really necessary.

Also, what are your thoughts on Sunbond? Used in conjunction with Hero of Iroas and Ordeal of Heliod, it makes for a pretty nasty combo.

Hey, great deck! I got some inspiration from your deck when building my W/U deck, particularly by adding Shu Yun. There's gotta be some conspiracy behind why Yun rhymes with fun, because that's what he makes my deck, though I'm not sure my opponents can say the same.

I really like Tethmos High Priest, personally, since he can very often reanimate your creatures just by doing exactly what you were planning on doing with your deck anyways and can get you out of some tight spots as well. I think he'd be a lot more helpful than the Ordeal of Heliods, though those Ordeals can help quite a bit against burn so your mileage may vary.

I play Sunbond and Mortal's Ardor in my U/W Heroic for similar effect. Sadly I don't have Ordeal of Heliod yet, but that's what I was thinking of when seeing Sunbond the first time.Didn't think anyone else would get the same idea since people at my LGS just looked at me in confusion when I revealed a Sunbond with Heliod's Pilgrim. Hahaha

I like the idea, but for me it seems a waste to play 2-mana creatures for the manifest cost plus the turn up cost, when they're not doing something additional when they're turned up. Maybe putting Ajani Steadfast or Elspeth, Sun's Champion (or both) could strengthen it up more, for their pumping effects.

Or maybe you could splash some green and put something like Daghatar the Adamant. Ordeal of Heliod or Feat of Resistance maybe could work too against some removal.

Take out the Ordeal of Heliod and replace them with one more Seeker of the Way and one more Hero of Iroas. And replace the Eidolon of Countless Battles with two Fabled Heros
