Chasm Skulker is the star player in this deck, the Flying Spaghetti Monster himself. Gets bigger the more cards I draw, with a guaranteed +1/+1 every turn. Fantastic synergy with Abzan Falconer and Ordeal of Thassa, and once it gets going its very hard to stop, because even if you manage to get around my 8 protection spells, even if you kill it, it generates tons of babies. This card is simply awesome.
Phalanx Leader: The quintessential Heroic playmate. Crappy body, but gives counters to everybody.
Battlewise Hoplite: A nice heroic card that interacts with the numerous targeting spells in the deck. He makes his own +1/+1 counters when targeted, as well as letting me get some free scrys. At worst he's a 2/2 for two, so that's never bad anyway.
Feat of Resistance and Gods Willing: The protection spells; stops spot removal, prevents blocks, triggers heroic, and lets me either get a free +1/+1 counter or scry.
Triton Tactics: in a format where aggro and burn seem to be freaking everywhere, it never hurts to have a bit of extra toughness, not to mention that it gives me surprise blockers that freeze who they block, triggers heroic and interacts beautifully with outlast.
