Decks with Heliod, Sun-Crowned combo in Modern
Combo that only needs 2 cards: Walking Ballista and Heliod, Sun-CrownedEdit Article
MONO-WHITE SOUL SISTERIt's been over 6 months since a soul sister deck has appeared on the metagame! But recently, last month, we saw a deck with Martyr of Sands doing 5-0 at MTGO . The deck is simple and straightforward, intended to get over 30 life to activate Serra Ascendant ability and create a significant clock in the opponent. As Heliod trigger ability works for each life gain, I changed Martyr of Sands for the soul sisters: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant who can become a Ajani's Pridemate with Heliod, Sun-Crowned in the battlefield. Ranger-Captain of Eos that can get Walking Ballista when it enters the battlefield. The deck have a midrange stance, but with a 2-card combo that can win the game at any time and with cards that have extreme synergy with each other on the deck.
SELESNYA DEVOTED HELIODThe other option we see with Heliod is to insert it into a familiar and already strong deck in Modern format: Devoted Druid! We made some changes to this 5-0 list here. Walking Ballista + Devoted Druid + Vizier of Remedies; so Ballista was already naturally entering the deck. The combo has the advantage of being protected by Giver of Runes and having many tutors: Finale of Devastation, Eladamri's Call, Ranger-Captain of Eos and Once Upon a Time.
Have we missed any decks on which Heliod, Sun-Crowned can shine? Comment and let's add here in the article!
