Ordeal of Thassa

Enchantment — Aura

Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Thassa.

When you sacrifice Ordeal of Thassa, draw two cards.

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

Some stuff I agree with and have gone ahead and changed but I do disagree with your views on Ordeal of Nylea , Ordeal of Thassa and Grateful Apparition .

The two ordeals help with what this deck wants to do and get +1/+1 counters on creatures with the added benefit of dropping two basic lands on to the field and drawing me two cards.

The apparition is an improvement over Thrummingbird as I can hit Planeswalkers and get a proliferate trigger.

My own views may change as I play the deck more but for now I'll keep things as they are now with the exception of deciding what land to drop in favour of Karn's Bastion as I want to try that out.

Thank you for your time and suggestions. It's appreciated.

I'd get rid of Ajani's Welcome , Ordeal of Nylea , Ordeal of Thassa , Bloodcrazed Hoplite , and Grateful Apparition .

Ajani's Welcome is extremely slow. It's a okay turn 1 play, but in a 99 singleton card deck, you never consistently get this out turn 1. Gaining 1 life is awesome for triggers, but is extremely slow when you consider you are starting out with 40 life already. I personally feel it's a dud card and will never ever be the card that "put you so far ahead".

Ordeal of Thassa is better off a Brainstorm . Its 1 less mana, instant speed and gains you 1 more card to look at.

Ordeal of Nylea I kinda like, but I personally would just run a Kodama's Reach or Cultivate

Bloodcrazed Hoplite I am not a fan of in this deck. 100% of the time, you are going to wish it was a Sage of Hours and are going to want to put counters onto other creatures. I personally prefer Servant of the Scale as it doubles the amount of counters put from servant to x creature.

Grateful Apparition is straight up better as the OG Atraxa, Praetors' Voice . A 1/1 flying body is quite useless, and I've found it's often a wasted 2 mana and never the card you want to top deck. Atraxa atleast garuntees a proliferate and let's not forget that a 4/4 flying, vigilance, lifelink, death touch for 4 is extremely viable and offers lots of protection. I play the card as often as I can because it's a 'must remove' creature and that's useful for stripping your opponents of answers.

BahamutPRME on Casual Greek Deck

So I'm trying to make a deck for my friend for his birthday and he likes Greek Mythology, specifically Poseidon, Hades, and Zues in this order. I'm wanting to stay in the Theros block and have 3 deck ideas but I need some advice and criticism because I don't want to make him a weak deck.

Here are what I've made:

The first one is using Heliod because I made this first and forgot there is a god that looks like zues but in MTG Heliod is the "Leader" or Highest ranking or whatever.

The second one is using Keranos and white humans so its 4 colors instead of 3.

The third one is sticking to the block and theme but also sticking to heroic and scry.

I have always been bad about including a safe amount of land in my decks so that is something i really need help with. I also wasn't sure if this was the best way to show the decks or if i should've just copy and pasted each text.

Thank you!

Greek Deck 1

Greek Deck 2

Greek Deck 3

Sorry for the long post. Wasn't sure how to do this.

dgsav24 on $5 Bird Counters

Love this! Having flying on every creature adds so much value to the deck, and the counters really play off each other nicely. I swapped Cartouche of Knowledge and Recumbent Bliss with Ordeal of Thassa and Pacifism , as well as adding in Meandering River s.

Great build, love the $5 decks!

Ordeal of Heliod , Ordeal of Thassa , Together Forever , and Triumph of Gerrard are all cheap enchantments that can give you multiple +1/+1 counters. The combo of Ordeal of Heliod and Sunbond is always fun if you can pull it off.

I like the soldier "phalanx" flavor of Theros, and I cannot decide between W/R or W/B decks, even thinking of merging the 3 colors. To me it is about thematic casual play.

Have you been testing it out?. Running 18 lands and with that many scry cards looks a very fast deck that should not flood. Do you feel it runs out of fuel?.

Because I'm considering adding blue and having Ordeal of Thassa and some of other blue cards in it.
