    I believed him when he posted.
    I speculated the StP Enchantment is the Ordeal of Heliod Wink

    This seems quite believable. Would look like this assuming the cycle works always the same:

    Ordeal of Heliod white mana
    Enchant creature
    Whenever enchanted creature attacks, put a +1/+1 counter on it. Then if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, sacrifice Ordeal of Heliod.
    When you sacrifice Ordeal of Heliod, (you may?) exile target creature. If you do, its controller gains life equal to its power.

    This would make the Ordeals be of the form "put counters on the creature, when it has enough counters, sacrifice for a staple effect of that color" (red has Lightning Bolt, white Swords to Plowshares...maybe green makes a token? blue draws cards? black destroys?)

    posted a message on Master of Cruelties + Kaalia of the Vast
    I was astonished to hear that his ability works when he's put into play attacking. I believe the rules, but that "whenever this attacks and isn't blocked" triggers when "whenever this attacks" doesn't, seems highly unituitive.
    While writing this, it seems that "whenever this attacks and isn't blocked" is not some sort of delayed trigger but triggers at the moment blockers are declared, when the creature is not blocked. Makes sense. But could be rephrased as "whenever this isn't blocked while attacking".
