Because Heliod + Worship = Hard lock. Also my most recent FNM revealed I could swarm the board with reduclous amounts of 2/1 cleric enchantment tokens with Nykthos (my last match ended with well over 20 tokens on the battlefield).
Since Starfield of Nyx acts as a replacement effect converting all of my enchantments to creatures leaves them vulnerable to all sorts of creature removal spells without Greater Auramancy on the battlefield. Using Worship with Heliod and Greater Auramancy makes it next to impossible for the opponent to kill me through any form of combat damage or evasion. The goal of this deck is not to win through combat per say, it's an attrition deck pure and simple.
Finally, thanks to Heliod I can generate tokens at instant speed or if the cards devotion cost is met I can't die with worship on the battlefield outside of being milled (happens all of the time with this deck). I opted for Sigil over Starfield because this card creates flyers that can evade much of moderns grounded meta game. Starfield only creates grounded creatures. Yes, there's layers of redundancy in this deck and I have been considering replacing this card with pithing needle for more flexibility against plainswalkers and artifact decks.

exalted_k1d, I have been considering adding this card to the mainboard, but was concerned about leaving the cards in play subject to board wipes, mass removal, burn, and other removal spells since they would essentially become creatures. Also, I am not sure how this card would interact with creature tokens created by Heliod, God of the Sun as they technically have a CMC of zero.

Goofydat, In other decks sure that is definitely the case with Leyline. In a pillow fort deck, no this card is a solid mainboard card. The current modern meta is filled with burn, hand disruption, and several powerful plainswalkers that target the player.
