Thanks Soulfeaster99. While I know that Death's Presence doesn't trigger heroic, it's to keep and multiply my +1/+1 counters. I have my Ordeal of Heliod and my Ordeal of Nylea that I'll want to play multiple times with Reviving Melody. Along with Heroic, it just stacks +1/+1 counters. Death's Presence will also allow me to play an Ordeal and trigger it on the same turn.

Looks alright, but Chosen of Heliod seems worse than Ordeal of Heliod. It doesn't draw a card, but it gives your creature an aggro-relevant pump.

I really like this idea as two colors. Keeps costs down and opens up so many more things. My biggest issue is the apparent lack of attackers. At a glance, I'd remove Hopeful Eidolon for Master of the Feast or Herald of Torment. Probably the Herald, since you can make up the life loss really easily, and he's not an immediate removal target or giving card advantage like the Master. I'd also run a full set of the Brain Maggots for removal. I'm also not sure about Ordeal of Heliod, I think other enchantments might be better, since it doesn't look like you need the life gain. Maybe get rid of the Ordeals for 2 more Banishing Light, and then one more of both the ram and the maggot.

I feel that while Snapcaster Mage is good it wouldn't really flow too well with the plans. I havent seen too much upside to running it. I've playtested and it just was lackluster. I'm already running 4 non heroic cards and I would like to have as many as possible. I still will work with it and see if it changes my mind though:)
I will however be moving Blind Obedience to the sideboard in favor of a targeting enchantment to trip heroic. I've replaced it with Ordeal of Heliod. I just feel that Obedience would be better served sided against an aggro type commander deck.
Again thanks for the suggestions! Keep em coming!

You could also consider using Ordeal of Heliod for creature pump and some decent life gain

Love the deck! Maybe add Heliod's Pilgrim instead of to search for the Eidolon of Countless Battles in order to search for Ordeal of Heliod, Aqueous Form, Stratus Walk or Ordeal of Thassa? +1 from me!

If the trigger from Ordeal of Heliod and the like activate heroic, then this does as well. You're looking at it from a purely defensive standpoint. You play, say, a Monastery Swiftspear on turn one, turn two Break Through the Line which activates prowess, turn three target the Monastery Swiftspear with Break Through the Line, let that resolve to make it unblockable, then target it with a Titan's Strength for an unblockable 5 damage.
