    Heroes (12)

    Akroan Skyguard
    The cheapest (casting cost wise) hero with a built-in evasion. Just.. lovely!
    Wingsteed Rider
    The stronger, but slower version of Akroan Skyguard.
    Setessan Oathsworn
    Generaly not a good heroic card, kinda expensive cast-costing wise. BUT, with Bioshift and Pit Fight it gains a lot of value.

    Heroic Triggers (18)

    This is probably the best heroic trigger in pauper, at one mana can target two heroic creatures that don't even need to have any +1/+1 counter at the time this spell is cast. Best use would be to transfer the counters from a dying creature onto another hero or put those counters on Gladecover Scout to enchant it with Hopeful Eidolon and just swing.
    Ethereal Armor
    With a total of 14 enchantments in this deck, this quickly becomes quite a threat.
    Hopeful Eidolon
    This deck is a race for lifepoints against opponent, so lifelink can be key; also triggers heroic AND counts as enchantment for Etheral Armor. This is the highest casting cost spell in the deck, considering its bestow ability.
    Forced Adaptation
    Usualy not the best aura in some decks, but it can do serious damage in this deck, mainly if played on Gladecover Scout and/or when you Bioshift the counters onto another creature when the creature it's enchanting is about to die.
    Pit Fight
    Activates heroic and can kill an opponent's creature at instant speed, all for mere two mana!
    Leafcrown Dryad
    Not a big fan of this guy, but it triggers heroic and counts as enchantment to pump whichever creature Etheral Armor is enchanting, even after the creature that Leafcrown Dryad was enchanting Dies. This is the highest casting cost spell in the deck, considering its bestow ability.

    Other Creatures (6)

    Gladecover Scout
    Pump spells can be used to trigger heroic OR to try and make this guy big so it gets harder to kill; It lacks evasion, sadly, but still this is the best target for Forced Adaptation IMO.
    This is not so aggressive, so I limited to two in the main deck.

    Other Spells (3)

    "Creature kill" with the benefit of counting towards to Ethereal Armor's "devotion" to enchantments.


    So this deck has 12 heroes, lots of spells to trigger heroic ability and four copies of Gladecover Scout, which is also a good target for the pumping spells since it has hexproof. The idea is to fill the BF with creatures and race opponent for life points via combat, using some tricks like Bioshift and/or Pit Fight to have an edge on combats. This is an aggro deck, and the mana curve is very low, most spells cost up to three mana, but the mana curve ends at four (considering Leafcrown Dryad/Hopeful Eidolon bestow cost).
