Hero of Iroas from 'Born of the Gods' revealed

Hero of Iroas is one of the newest "Born of the Gods" spoilers revealed today Jan 14, 2014 in an article by Gavin Verhey on DailyMTG.com. This rare white creature card with heroic reduces the cost of your aura spells by one.

Hero of Iroas - 1W
Creature - Human Soldier (Rare)
Aura spells you cast cost 1 less to cast.
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets Hero of Iroas, put a +1/+1 counter on Hero of Iroas.
"My left has felled a cyclops. My right has slain a giant. I bring both to every fight."
2/2

According to Verhey: "To answer the question I'm sure you're all wondering: this does reduce the mana cost while bestowing creatures!" That means Hero of Iroas makes Celestial Archon, Boon Satry, Hopeful Eidolon, Nighthowler, Observant Alseid, and friends easier to play (especially when you have multiple Hero of Iroas on the battlefield.)

Hero of Iroas makes it easier to cast multiple aruas such as Ordeal of Purphoros and Ordeal of Heliod on your heroic creatures like Agent of the Fates, Fabled Hero, Phalanx Leader, or Anax and Cymede in one turn.

Hero of Iroas may just be the tool that heroic decks need to be pushed even further competitively. There's a plethora of aura cards in Standard to explore with Hero of Iroas, and even more interactions to discover in Modern.

How will you use Hero of Iroas?
