Heliod, God of the Sun

Legendary Enchantment Creature — God

Indestructible

As long as your devotion to white is less than five, Heliod isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts towards your devotion to white.)

Other creatures you control have vigilance.

: Put a 2/1 white Cleric enchantment creature token onto the battlefield.

Heliod, God of the Sun Discussion

BMHKain on Help Wanted for Kruphix MASS ...

1 day ago

@cascadien: Yeah... I agree that Chulane is easily the better Legend. But one thing was left out of the Gates of Nyx as to WHY I chose Kruphix, God of Horizons instead:

  1. First of all; lore wise: He's a Goddamn Primordial God! Older than even Heliod, God of the Sun ; who is like a King of the Gods for the Plane of Theros; but Kruphix knows more outside of Theros than all its other Gods. He even knew of the Eldrazi's Existence, & that not even all 5 Major Gods & 10 (9 if you count that has no God.) Minor Gods's overall combined power can even effect Ulamog ; who is the Weakest of the 3 Titans. He's also one of my favorite Simic Cards of all time; & I'll mention why...

  2. ...Now. He's Indestructible; he's not that hard to cast from the Command Zone, any leftover Mana that would empty from the Mana Pool is retained, & converted to mana, which can be used freely so as long as Kruphix, God of Horizons is in play; in which, you kinda need to Exile him to destroy the Mana Reserve. Oh, & did I also mention HE'S A GODDAMN RELIQUARY TOWER ON LEGS!

  3. I dunno if you get this theme in mind, but: is a big factor in this deck; most notably in the use of Mana Ramp & Card Draw. There are several ways to Ramp for a HUGE number of Mana. Heck, Card Advantage isn't the only thing that benefits from Costed Stuff. This deck uses Creature Advantage by Pumping all that into an cost for a Myriad of abilities; be it a Mana Cost, or even a cost for an effect that requires it; sometimes effects.

4 FINAL. Did you even read the rules text for Unbound Flourishing ? This card is why I wanted to try Kruphix, God of Horizons one more time.

Sorry, but I'm not making Chulane anytime soon. Kruphix stays. & I just want some suggestions or cuts from this deck please. Any other ideas? I'll be waiting...

Very surprising that Heliod, God of the Sun isnt in here. He's an awesome mana sync and makes cards that you have like Ethereal Armor and Sphere of Safety soooooo much better. Additionally, All That Glitters and Skybind are pretty good; if you do put in Serra's Sanctum and Heliod, God of the Sun you can make an overwhelming amount of clerics by blinking Serra's Sanctum with the trigger from Skybind and dumping the mana into heliod.

Along with untap shenanigans you could run some vigilance so that your vehicles can be animated on other turns as blockers. Things like Brave the Sands (on point for flavor), Heliod, God of the Sun and Angelic Field Marshal . Also Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist is a great defensive creature to crew your vehicles with.

ScionsStillLive, basically Heliod, God of the Sun proclaimed that he was superior to all other Gods. This helped fracture the Pantheon but not outright destroy it. The Gruul God went missing, and eventually Xenagos, the Reveler was able to cause so much chaos that he was worshipped and became Xenagos, God of Revels . Elspeth, Sun's Champion killed him, and something happened that caused Heliod to kill her in return.

She is now in the underworld and our return will pick up where her story left off.

Not sure what you're looking for help with but if you're not on a budget I'd replace Arcane Denial with Mana Drain . Also, Heliod, God of the Sun makes enchantment creatures and is a wonderful mana dump for Serra's Sanctum

Made a few more changes to the deck to help with its consistency. Replaced Heliod, God of the Sun and Thassa, God of the Sea with Mana Vault and Mystic Remora . Probably should have removed the gods a long time ago since they didn't really fit with the deck, but I had a soft spot for them. Mana Vault is another card to help cast Enduring Ideal ahead of schedule and Mystic Remora is another card draw enchantment that can get pretty ridiculous in a game with a lot of opponents or when used in conjunction with Solemnity . Also upgraded the land base a bit more adding Underground River and the Esper filter lands in place of some basics and Maze of Ith . I like Maze of Ith , but too often it can be a liability when you just want mana and with these changes it should be much more consistent in getting your colours out as well.

First up Propaganda isn't modern legal. I'm also unsure what Thought Scour and Cloudstone Curio actually do for the deck, so they seem like easy cuts.

It seems a little slow at the moment, you won't drop anything meaningful until T3. I think 4x Wall of Omens fits very well to have early board presence and draw. 1x Heliod, God of the Sun would also be a good include.

I think 4x Runed Halo would be better than 4x Psychic Corrosion , maybe include 1-off if mill is your alternate win-con. 2x Wrath of God or 2x Supreme Verdict may be better than Oust to help against aggro.

Another sideboard option: 1x Greater Auramancy

Hello! So I have a couple questions for you! Im running a Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis Angel tribal deck, but going to make it into a Sigarda Angel tribal. And I was wondering how well Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Serra the Benevolent work in this deck! what would be some recommendations for card/draw and control in selesnya colors you could give? Im thinking about buying interesting underrated cards like Excise and maybe a Chancellor of the Annex also would you prefer to have the Ajani, the Greathearted over something like Heliod, God of the Sun ? Or do you have Ajani because of aatraxa?
