My friend, you made a mistake. You don't win on turn five with Favored Hoplite, you win on turn 3.

Step 1: Favored Hoplite
Step 2: 2 Ethereal Armor, swing 7/8 first strike
Step 3: Ajani, Caller of the Pride, swing with 7/8 first strike, flying, double strike.

Game. Set. Match. Profit. Gin. Yahtzee. Checkmate.

Pray for no removal.

I just love theros, and heroic cards. My brother loves using this guys, especially in white/green cheap buff decks!

This thing can be unstoppable if you have God's Willing ready at all times to save it from removal + give it +1/+1 and indestructibility.

This gets very scary very fast in my G/W voltron deck. And as long as I keep lots of Gods Willing, Ranger's Guile and Alpha Authority around there's not a thing they can do about it.

I'm kind of glad that Rancor isn't in Standard anymore. Imagine turn one Temple Garden, this, turn two double Rancor. If you go second against this opening, best case you kill it turn two but they break even on cards, non-best case you die.

Kills most one drops and can stand against basically any creature with that heroic trigger. Very Powerful for its cost when you consider how many helpful spells white has to target its creatures' with.

Just one spell and its a 2/3 for White. very efficient.

Bestow with Noble Quarry for three alpha strikes.

One of my favorite 1 drops and probably the best 1 drop in the Theros set if I do say so myself. Works well with God's Willing.

This card is ridiculous in Limited. With very little effort you can have a 2/3 or 3/4 that is invulnerable to damage every time it swings. Blue can be nasty using this in traps too with cards like triton tactics. In constructed as well we've still got madcap, the ordeals, and tons of other turn 2 buffs. Plus, if you get something like Hidden Stings off and they could be looking at a vigilant hoplite who's invulnerable and growing every turn.
