MtG: 15 Best Theros Beyond Death Cards for Pioneer

Heliod, Sun-Crowned

Heliod, Sun-Crowned is another enchantment-creature card that can be used for a rather obvious infinite damage combo with Walking Ballista. Here's how it works:

  1. Play Forest and cast Llanovar Elves
  2. Play Plains and cast Heliod, Sun-Crowned
  3. Cast Walking Ballista for 2 non-white mana and play Radiant Fountain
  4. This will add another counter to Walking Ballista for a total of two
  5. Activate Heliod's Lifelink ability for the remaining two mana targeting Walking Ballista
  6. Remove a counter from Walking Ballista and deal 1 damage to your opponent
  7. This will trigger Heliod's passive ability targeting Walking Ballista, adding a +1/+1 counter to it
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for infinite damage

The only question remains: when exactly will Wizards of the Coast ban this combo in Pioneer?
