The following cards only have a casting cost of 1 or 2, and may be useful?

i. Brave the Elements can facilitate a massive, sudden surprise attack. A cheaper alternative is Gods Willing.

ii. I think also Ordeal of Heliod synergizes well with the deck.

iii. Also Authority of the Consuls slows down your opponent while helping you gain life.

iv. Brave the Sands can also be useful for attack-defense.

Anyway, enjoyed your deck! +1

So, I have a few ideas we could hash out for this deck, and I included a bunch of cards that I'll just give you, as well as a few cards you should pick up and plan to use, regardless. We can sit down and actually hash this out together if you'd like, or you can wing it and develop something on your own. Either way, I'm stoked you're getting so into this!

If you are referring to aura's than their are the Ordeal cycle from Theros, most notably Ordeal of Heliod. There are some decent haste enchantments such as Hammerhand or Cartouche of Zeal. I'll take a look on gatherer to see if I cant find an aura that gives counters other than the ordeal cycle.

As for non-aura's Hardened Scales if you already have the means to, Cathars' Crusade for continuos counters, Bow of Nylea can give counters, however most tend to be sorceries. A haste static enchantment would be Fervor.

@ReignBeauxRida: The Outlast creatures would be so much better if you could put a +1/+1 on other creatures, as it is now they only put them on themselves. Abzan Falconer and Mer-Ek Nightblade would be interesting though! The other effects we already have.

@AkaAkuma: Thanks! Soldiers are definitely a good option, I toyed with the idea as well. Favor of the Mighty seems good but you have to keep in mind that protection also means we can't enchant or target her, so we can't give her more counters, the equips still work because they don't have a color.

Rest for the Weary looks pretty good, but you'd ideally want it if they blow up Licia and you need to recast her.. Sunspring Expedition might be good as well for the same reason, just wait a little with sacrificing until you need it. I'm still piecing together the heal spells so I'll put this in the maybeboard :). Ordeal of Heliod on Licia wouldn't work that well..

The problem with lifegain spells is that you need them to help you cast Licia. If she's already there, extra life doesn't really matter because just fighting with her can get you pretty much 10 life a turn. Add in all the other tools we have and you can easily get 100 life. Aetherflux Reservoir at that point, would just be mean hahaha

Hey looks good! I am thinking about starting a Licia EDH as well. Although i might take a soldier route instead of vampire.

What about Favor of the Mighty, Rest for the Weary or maybe Aetherflux Reservoir?

Also Sunspring Expedition and Ordeal of Heliod might be interesting but i'd rather keep playing Licia a surprise.

Ordeal of Heliod is really just a bad card for modern. It is outclassed for example by Daybreak Coronet ... You should explore more for what enchantments there are since there are much better ones. I know that Daybreak Coronet is expensive but it could also be a solid replacement for your Hopeful Eidolon.

Also enchantment creatures are weak by themselves, but then expensive for a bestow. IMO it would be better to have more solid heroic creatures and stronger enchantments rather than trying to have some that do both...

Spirit Mantle offers a lot of good value against other aggro or creature decks

Splashing blue could also let you do a lot more with cards like Aqueous Form, Battlewise Hoplite, and I'm sure there are also probably better things than I just listed.

A Sunbond deck! My specialty! :D

I highly recommend Ordeal of Heliod in this form of deck. It is generally more effective on heroic creatures but would work well with unblockable ones as well. I'd recommend dropping Moonsilver Spear, because it is a worse form of Invocation of Saint Traft in this deck, as your unblockable creatures don't require first strike. Other than that suggestion however, I feel that your deck seems pretty good, assuming you aren't trying to stomp them with some tier one deck like soul sisters. You've got mass heal for the multiplayer setting, a combat saver, hexproof, and unblockable. Nice job!

Rev_Lycan60 Hey, thank you for your suggestion! On one hand I like the idea that it can both knock out a creature and boost one, while also being an aura for Eidolon of Countless Battles. On the other hand though, not all Heroic creatures in this deck are humans and I cannot depend on my opponent not playing humans.

If I were to play Bonds of Faith I would most likely switch it out for Pacifism. But as it is, I prefer the latter. In case I don't draw Hopeful Eidolon (which I want to switch out for something else anyway) or Ordeal of Heliod the entire game, I want do make sure that the removal I play is unconditional. The deck needs to reliably be able to deal with big evasive creatures.
