Chosen by Heliod Discussion

Hey! I think that you should use more Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield (e.g. Angelic Gift for flying, Grisly Transformation for evasion to non-Orzhov creatures, Sage's Reverie ). A card like Chosen by Heliod probably work better than Holy Strength , for example.

A card like Skeletal Scrying may help you drawing cards. You can use Auras destroyed by the first time Killian is removed to fuel it.

What do you think about Hateful Eidolon ? It can be a voltron beater and help you draw cards if Killian is destroyed. Scarab of the Unseen can also help you recovering Auras from a creature that is about to be destroyed. This with Auras that draws a card when they enter the battlefield may be a good card advantage play.

Maybe a boardwipe or two can help you in some situations.

I think that white should have some abilities of the archcetype of aikido, like Deflecting Palm and Karmic Justice and Manabarbs Comeuppance and have it work with stax, angels, lifelink, cats, token decks, etc. We could add aikido of Karmic Justice to a small 1/1 cat token. If we could use lifelink, and cards that deal damage according to lifegain (usually black), with these aikdio instants and sorceries and enchantments, we would have a great advantage and synergy across all white archetypes. . There are some pretty good white card draw stuff like Angelic Gift , Chosen by Heliod , even 1 white mana cost Defiant Strike . And these are just a few of white cards that have drawing power in pioneer.

I am trending away from global enchantments in favor of repeated life gain or creature generation in this batch of edits. I made sweeping edits in several categories:

  • Lands

Swapped out 8 Plains for Cryptic Caves, Desert of the True, Encroaching Wastes, Idyllic Grange, Karn's Bastion, Labyrinth of Skophos, Radiant Fountain and Secluded Steppe.

  • Defensive Auras

Upgraded Pious Interdiction to Recumbent Bliss (which would potentially provide many instances of life gain instead of 1) and dropped Bonds of Faith in favor of Gossamer Chains.

  • Offensive Auras

Upgraded Chosen by Heliod to Soaring Hope, Hope Against Hope to Spirit Mantle, Indomitable Will to Gift of Immortality and Ordeal of Heliod to Sunbond.

  • Sorceries

Upgraded from Blessed Reversal to Aetherflux Reservoir, Plea for Guidance to Silent Sentinel and added Pegasus Stampede for more ETB creature triggers.

  • Vanilla Creatures

Swapped out generic flyers (Armored Pegasus, Concordia Pegasus, Loyal Pegasus, Mistral Charger, Stormfront Pegasus, Wingsteed Rider) for ones with more ability or utility (Pegasus Charger, Plated Pegasus, Eiganjo Free-Riders).

  • Relevance

Bigger is not necessarily better so I opted to swap out Serra Avatar for Danitha Capashen, Paragon.

  • Defense and Removal

I swapped out Elspeth Conquers Death and Ghostly Prison in favor of Sacred Mesa and Monastery Mentor and Giant Killer for Frontline Medic.

  • Boost

I also replaced 3 boost effects (Commander's Insignia, Dictate of Heliod, Honor of the Pure) with 3 alternate win conditions (Test of Endurance, Felidar Sovereign, Archon of Redemption).

  • Life Gain

Replaced 3 less efficient or reliable life gain sources (Soldier of the Pantheon, Righteous Cause, Honden of Cleansing Fire) with better ones (Soul's Attendant, Auriok Champion, Pious Evangel / Wayward Disciple, Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Answered Prayers).

I have Hobble in the deck. But is it worth it to have Chosen by Heliod in the deck just for the flickering effect to draw an extra card at the cost of a card? Especially if the card only Grant's +0/+2

I think Chosen by Heliod and Hobble could be added. Both add 1 devotion and draw a card, can be grabbed with Pilgrim and be bounced by Aviary Mechanic and Kor Skyfisher . Up to you though, if you don't think they Jyve with the gameplan then I would hold off.

Podkomorka: On the enchantments suggested: I have really found many more pacifism effects to be really meh, especcially at threee mana. I have found that whenever playing against a cPDH deck, I don't need that sort of effect because most of the combat oriented commanders lose to a protection from URBG wall with lifelink, so I have been slowly cutting them. I have really been wavering on Gelid S, because of the mana requirements, but your recommendation might push it over the edge. Crown of Awe was originally in the deck, then I cut it, but i should re-add it probably. The DoD player is getting more aggresive tutoring for removal before Tallowisp is online.

On to the cuts, pretty much every spirit under 4 mana is included, no matter how bad jusy because of the tutor effect and how badly I need to have protection from URBG by turn 4. Mortal Obstinacy is neccisary beccause every game my plagroup has a turn 3-ish Rhystic Study , probably because of DoD. This gives me a consistent answer, while also allowing me to destroy harmful white enchantment-based removal. Armillary Sphere probably should go, I have some sentimental attachments, but I will cut it in the name of cPDH. Chosen by Heliod is also borderline, I like the draws, but it's been unimpressive.

I can defenatly see adding more Auramancer type cards , and thanks with the help!
