Theros feels like the most straightforward set I've ever played. I wonder how this deck would fare in Standard? It's also Block and Tribal. Creatures: 15 4x Hero of Iroas 4x Fabled Hero 4x Nyxborn Shieldmate 2x Celestial Archon 1x Anax and Cymede Auras: 20 4x Ordeal of Heliod 4x Mortal Obstinancy 4x Ordeal of Purphoros 4x Chained to the Rocks 4x Gift of Immortality Gods: 3 2x Iroas, God of Victory 1x Heliod, God of the Sun Planeswalkers: 1 1x Elspeth, Sun's Champion Lands: 21 10x Plains 9x Mountain 2x Temple of Triumph Akroan Crusader + Phalanx Leader is boss. If I get a Crusader, a targeting spell, and Hoplite from the jump, I can win by turn 5, maybe 4. The main thing that sucks about this deck is I have to use deck space on Auras and Instants to trigger Heroic, and sometimes I wish I could get out more creatures. Everything else is solid enough; I have a strong and fast attack, and a fair amount of defense with Chained to the Rocks, Divine Verdict, and Spear of Heliod, the latter two pulling double duty. How would you compare these Heroic guys to other soldiers/weenies in Modern?
