Heliod's Pilgrim Discussion

You need to add more tormenting voice effects. Faithless Looting and Cathartic Reunion for sorcery, Geier Reach Sanitarium for land, Key to the City for artifacts, Rix Maadi Reveler for a budget creature and Seasoned Pyromancer nonbudget.

The second thing you need is fast mana, so put in cards like signets: Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Boros Signet and the talisman cycle: Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Indulgence .

If you want to keep on this combo build you might want in your deck Open the Armory , Heliod's Pilgrim and Kaya's Ghostform

Hey, I enjoyed your primer. I've been looking for good Marath lists. I play a lot of cedh, and recently started building a Marath deck. Mind taking a look? http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/marath-flourishing-hulk/

I also really respect your inclusion of Heliod's Pilgrim . It wwas a card I was considering as well.

PookandPie on Your Average Uril deck

Ah, love Uril. One of my favorites. Here's my Uril deck so you know where my suggestions stem from:

Uril: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yeti

Commander / EDH PookandPie


You have Madcap Skills, but no Tilonalli's Crown . I find Crown to be immensely valuable as it pumps Uril right up to 10 power for only a 1R investment.

Chandra's Ignition is basically Single Combat except nobody but you gets to keep anything. Popping that with a 10 power Uril will typically wipe the field, let alone deal damage directly to your opponent's faces.

Cartouche of Strength is both absurd and good. +3 power, trample, and kills a creature of an opponent's unless its power is greater than 8 is great for 2G.

You run Bear Umbra already, so maybe Aggravated Assault for infinite combat damage from Uril?

Heliod's Pilgrim is a cheap card that can find any aura in the library. I typically use it to find Shield of the Oversoul or Bear Umbra. That seems to be worth considering. That definitely seems more useful than something like Trepanation Blade, in any respect.

Hope this helps!

@Caerwyn: EXCEPT: Bruna was already cut from my list. Though based on your thoughts on Heliod's Pilgrim , that reduces the Revolver Chamber Bullet shots from 1/5 to 1/4. a 1/4 chance the trigger fires something. With the Pilgrim having no shell in her cranium, what would your opinion be on the remaining 4 targets? Damn, though... Why am I talking about such a controversial topic in such a matter? Is it really worth plot hole inducement? Can't believe I actually wanted to watch something I earlier on hated; ALOT earlier...

I suppose your thoughts on Cavalier of Dawn is: Abomination?

I personally cut Bruna from my aura-Enchantment list - she cost too much mana and generally did not make that big of a difference.

I do like Heliod's Pilgrim though - recall that a significant portion of your removal package is auras, which Pilgrim can find. I’ve found it is very helpful to cast Heliod’s to find a and reveal a Song of the Dryads or Darksteel Mutation - players are less inclined to cast their commanders when they know you can remove it in a manner that does not send the commander to the command zone for recasting.

@Caerwyn: Exterminated Akroma's Memory. Decided to refrain from cutting Worldpurge ; seems too awesome in any deck running . What about Bruna, Light of Alabaster ? She seems to want a lot of Auras for herself at CMC6. As for what other thing to cut, I got the prime suspects remaining for Enchantment Tutoring (Heliod would kill beyond death anyone who'd remove such a land from Modern Horizons...) needing quite some cuts. With 5 Rounds, only one actually in the overall 5 Star-Style Revolver Chamber, who'd not to cut, but rather to kill?

I don't know what I'd cut; though that Heliod's Pilgrim seems to do less than the others... What do you aim for as a target as you making 5 cards play Russian Roulette? Which card wants you to pull the trigger...? (I feel like- no; I'm not severing my chain any further; though there was a game similar to this, but w/ plot...) & yes, I apologize for that reference, & yes, I know it's a bad one as well; I'm just setting the mood; improperly.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Nice upgrade of the precon. Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

  • Contagion Engine
  • Contagion Clasp
  • Righteous Aura
  • Seal of the Guildpact
  • Helm of the Gods
  • Champion's Helm
  • Thoughtrender Lamia

Proliferate isn't doing much here except giving you more experience counters and that's not worth it instead play more enchantments to get experience counters?

Consider adding more low mana cost enchantments to get experience counters faster? Flickering Ward is very good because it's one mana enchantment that can be an engine to get experience counters while also protecting Daxos from targeted removal from the color of protection you choose. Also excellent with Mesa as a draw engine. Kaya's Ghostform another one mana enchantment that can help to pseudo protect Daxos by reanimating him when he dies or is exiled. Because Daxos is only three mana and he can be a repeatable source of tokens then consider less creatures? Board wipes that kill all creatures are good with enchantment strategies and with a Commander who can create creatures after a wipe.

Can add enchantments to protect/reanimate Daxos from your own or opponents' board wipes:

Tutors that don't break the bank that can get an aura/enchantment are helpful:

Expanding on enchantments that disrupt your opponents can buy you more time to get experience counters and make Spirits:

Once you have a lot of experience counters then you don't need to really cast lots of enchantments. Can instead utilize Daxos's ability to make creatures without casting them. Which is good with enchantments that only let players play one spell per turn. This disrupts your opponents more than you and in some cases shuts down entire opponent strategies like combos:

Good luck with your deck.
