Favored Hoplite Discussion

Great suggestion! Thanks! I'll probably cut out Boros swiftblade to pull in the Favored Hoplite

I'll definitely make room for the Aether Vial as well.

After some play testing I'll figure out where I can fit in Legion Loyalist

Favored Hoplite 1 drops are pretty important to be doing something on Turn 1. can't take turns off in modern.

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.

Firemane Avenger is a good budget card, but doesn't really interact with your auras. Tiana, Ship's Caretaker is good too, but I don't know if you want to be playing four copies of a legendary 5-drop. You might want to sub out some of those for Favored Hoplite , Akroan Skyguard , or Graceblade Artisan .

Looks fun! I do have a couple of thoughts. Why Healer's Hawk instead of a different one drop that benefits from all the spells you'll be casting? Like Monastery Swiftspear or Favored Hoplite . You also might want to find room for some of the cantrips- like Expedite or Crimson Wisps . If you target feather with them, you'll get to draw a card and bring it back to hand so you can draw more later!

You also definitely don't want to be running Blood Moon in your sideboard here. If you cast it, you suddenly only have 4 white sources in your whole deck, which is very not good for you.

I suggest you use your remaining 8 slots for: Akroan Crusader , Fabled Hero , and/or Favored Hoplite . All of those pair well with Feather, the Redeemed , which I suggest you run 4x. Even though it's legendary, since it seems like it's at the crux of the deck, it's essential to do everything possible to play it.

Deflecting Palm is usually useful in a boros sideboard.

In terms of deck building, my best advice is to keep your deck hyper-focused on a wincon - make your deck find the wincon, protect it, and execute it and do that 2 out of 3 times within 5 turns. Keep spells to the absolute minimum CMC. There's not really great ramp in red or white, so odds are, spells over 4 or 5CMC won't see hardly any play. Your 1-2CMC spells are a deck's bread and butter. Be sure you have include enough to get them every game.

I try to include the following mechanics in all my decks in some form or another:

I slapped together a deck for Feather, the Redeemed recently. (Feather's Cap) It's focused on the Heroic mechanic, and because of those spells, also tokens and +1/+1 counters. It's far from perfect, but the creature CMC curve is decent and you might find some spells worth considering there.

Hi AvengerOfDorubah! I use this deck in competitive plays in a store in my country. It runs very well, and if I draw a good hand, in turn 3 or 4 my opponent is dead. A good hand would be turn 1 Plains Favored Hoplite . Turn 2 Mountain, attack, Titan's Strength on Favored Hoplite and you are running for 5 of damage. If you opponent want to destroy your creature, you have a Plains for Gods Willing . Its a very violent deck and I like to play it. Spells blue of Theros block are interestings, you can draw cards, but I think that those spells are best for midrange decks, or control decks. I'm now building an ideas of a G/B deck of Theros whith Prophet of Kruphix , and other U/B cruel control, so if you had suggestions they are very welcome!
