There's also the Akroan Crusader that's a Red 1 drop that'll produce 1/1 tokens.

I've built around the heroic mechanic before and it is fun. If left unchecked it'll get out of hand in a hurry, but with this deck I'm semi going for the speed aggro thing, since the double strike creatures with all the pumps are in there. I was just trying to stay away from that Colossus Hammer . I think it looks cool, but I think everything in the deck leads up to that combo, where I want this to be something a little more versatile. Same goes for Trepanation Blade

Currently trying to fill in some gaps in my decklist, thoughts on Akroan Crusader ? Pretty low mana investment that has the potential to make some tokens if you throw some cantrips at it

RecklessFable I did. It's a fun deck to play with, but not necessarily against since turns can take a long time and since you play a lot of spells during your opponents' turns, not a lot of people in my play group liked to play against it before Paradox Engine got banned. But since i replaced it with Aria of Flame , this deck is less bad in term of taking a million years to cast the 20 cards in your hand since you don't have enough mana for everything, which makes the deck slightly more complicated compared to the mess of spell casting it was before. It can also really easily one hit someone out of nowhere with Fist of Flames. Overall, it's a really fun deck to play, but i would add some boardwipes to it and maybe throw in a Pyroblast so that blue cant counter Feather herself. Also, if you want to try her but don't wanna pay full price, you can easily change most of the expansive cards for any kinds of cantrips or boardwipes. I would even consider throwing in some creatures with heroic in there like Akroan Crusader .

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...

Akroan Crusader definitely reminds me of Achilles. Even though I think Akroans were meant to be Trojans, see Akroan Horse

Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris

Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy

Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons

Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion

Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!

Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas

That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!

I was a little surprised that I didn't see Favored Hoplite Hero of Iroas Fabled Hero Kytheon's Irregulars Akroan Crusader to represent Jason, Achilles, Hercules, Odysseus, Hector, Perseus or any of those people.

Yeah man, this one is tough. It looks pretty good, although I think I may take out some of the artifact hate and instead put in more targeted pump spells. You have a lot of protection spells (although maybe lacking a Gods Willing ) and double-strike spells, but you have few actual pump spells. Some of the spells I think can be upgraded, namely Boros Charm , Blessed Alliance , and maybe Balduvian Rage . These are good cards, but specifically with the indestructible spells, they are mostly used to counteract wrath effects which are not played in Tiny Leaders because of the mana cost restriction. You might look into Reckless Charge , Brute Force , Rush of Blood , Titan's Strength , and things of the like. I like the heroic package. Some of the other creatures you can probably cut without too much loss. Taking out Duergar Hedge-Mage and Electrostatic Field is where I would start. They just seem slow and kind of clunky. I could see Akroan Crusader and especially Dreadhorde Arcanist fitting nicely. This style of deck is entirely focused on what it is trying to do, so if you are interacting with the opponent it means you are detracting from the power of the deck, which is to apply pressure. Nice build though, I am not looking forward to facing it!

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.

What do you think of heroic cards as they appear very strong in the deck. Akroan Conscriptor and Akroan Crusader look great.
