This is an ordeal enabler.

Turn one, this guy. Turn two, any ordeal, swing. He's a 3/4. Turn 3, swing, trigger ordeal, he's a 4/5. You could even drop another ordeal on him turn 3 to make him a 6/7.

My personal favorite is Ordeal of Purphoros:
Turn 1: Plains, This guy.
Turn 2: Mountain, Ordeal of Purphoros, swing for 3. 3 Damage total.
Turn 3: Swing for 4. Ordeal triggers for 3 further damage. 10 damage total.

Alternate turn 3, with a second Ordeal of Purphoros:
Turn 3: Ordeal of Purphoros, swing for 6, both Ordeals trigger for 6 further damage. 15 damage total. On turn 3. And you have a 6/7 for them to deal with by their next turn or they die.

This guy is favored by me for sure-- MPV for the prerelease. If not answered immediately, he kills really quickly.

Turn 1 Favored Hoplite
Turn 2 Ordeal of Purphoros
Turn 3 Titan's Strength and Boros Charm

Turn 3 if no blockers they're dead. If not you're Hoplite is a 6/7 beater

Fire two Ethereal Armors on him on turn two and you've got a pretty beefy wee card: a 6/7 with first strike.

@isospeedrix : I don't think heroic works that way. Seeds of strength is still just one spell, so if you targeted him all three times, heroic will still only trigger one time.

He'd become a 5/6 on turn 2 (with damage prevention that turn), which is still pretty impressive.

Good material for a Pit Fighter.

Seeds of Strength (unfortunately) doesn't work quite as well as one might think. Heroic says "Whenever you cast A spell that targets...".

Seeds of Strength is ONE spell targeting multiple times, so heroic only triggers once.

Valor Made Real

Seems like it would work well with this, especially for the cost. My new white Heroic/Astral Steel storm deck likes it at least.

+1/+1 on spell-cast plus bonus indestructibility this turn

That's a lot of power in a one drop. These defintley are the cards you should run for a heroic deck of any color combo with white. I like using them with Warrior's Lesson early on
