Ordeal of Heliod Discussion

TyroMaven on Tribal Deck: Soldiers

12 hours ago

tempest, I was suggesting the Enchantments - Ordeal of Heliod for one. Your deck already has Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Captain of the Watch, and Field Marshal, so it's great with Soldiers. I took out a lot of the token-generators from mine, since nothing really flowed with tokens except for Odric, Master Tactician.

Basically what I was trying to do with my deck was put several weenie soldiers on the field, and buff the crap out of them right before they attack (helloooo, Mighty Leap!) I need to rethink if I want to buff them at sorcery-speed with more Equips, too, now that I've added Relic Seeker.

Back to your deck, though. I'd definitely recommend Obelisk of Urd if you're using a lot of the same creature type.

Consider adding Ethereal Armor, Feat of Resistance, or Glaring Aegis if you want to go defensive. Dauntless Onslaught and/or Defiant Strike for more offense.

Played the hangarback version online and it's beyond nasty. Makes it so the deck isn't as vulnerable to removal, which was the only real problem with it. Added 4 Hangarback Walkers and took out Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit and Daghatar the Adamant. Took out 2 plains and added 2 forests. Hardened Scales went up to 4 and I moved one Ordeal of Heliod to the sideboard.

Will make another version when I actually get them. I'll leave this one here because it is still really good but much more affordable.

Thank you, Ordeal of Heliod has been added. Reap What Is Sown and Phalanx Leader both require that I have 3+ creatures to reach their full efficiency, and in playtesting I rarely had that many on the battlefield at one time so I don't think I'll be putting them in.

I like your deck a lot and it's very similar to mine. +1. My one question is why did you put in 4 Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit? It is legendary after all.

I Love the Dromoka's Command + Lagonna-Band Trailblazer combo on turn 2! That will get you a 4/8 on the second turn, which is pretty awesome, and if you have Hardened Scales out there, is amazing. I think heroic plus double target plus Hardened Scales is insane. I've been working on a similar deck for post rotation in October G/W +1 Counter Crazy, and I feel I'm really missing out not using Theros block. Have you thought of Ordeal of Heliod or Reap What Is Sown? If you're not worried about rotation in October, I think those could both be good additions. Favored Hoplite could also be pretty awesome in here, and Phalanx Leader would be perfect.

Dromoka's Command seems really good in this deck and even Collected Company would probably work well with all the 3 and under drops you have. But I do understand it's budget. That's why no Mana Confluence or Windswept Heath though both would work really well.

More realistic ideas would just be to drop the count of Scale Blessing by 1 and add in another Feat of Resistance. I made a deck that was focused more on the counters from Heroic and Theros but with Hardened Scales in it, but there's a couple cards from there that could help here as long as you're not going post-rotation already. Also Tuskguard Captain would be perfect for getting the last points of damage across.

First of the Ordeals are pretty handy, Ordeal of Nylea and Ordeal of Heliod both can work pretty well and pretty quickly to boost up your creatures and either find you land or gain you life. The second suggestion from that deck would be Reap What Is Sown.

Cool deck, I like it!

Gift of Orzhova over Ordeal of Heliod. If you already have a +1/+1 counter on something and you put an ordeal on it you'll end up with a net of 2 counters and 10 life permanently. If you have gift you spend 1 more mana, have a permanent aura stack with ethereal armor, get 1 counter from heroic, +1/+1 from the enchantment, plus flying and lifelink. If you swing with ordeal on a creature that has an ethereal armor as well you'll lose the extra +1/+1 from the ethereal armor when you sac ordeal which happens before damage is dealt.

Wabbbit on Move to Atarka Red?

5 days ago

Is the right move for mono-red players to switch back over to Atarka's Command Red, what with all the hate coming out? Most of the hate cards for red are lifegain. Feed the Clan, Ordeal of Heliod, Ojutai's Command and so on, so I'm curious if you guys think this is a smart move to "counter" some of the hate against the build. Thoughts?
