Thanks for the tips.

I updated the deck following it, altho i'm not really sure if it's what you meant, replacing Awe Strike with Path to Exile , added 4 more lands, and replaced the Authority of the Consuls with Dawn of Hope . Also included two Seraph Sanctuary as another lifegain source just to trigger it like it was before since i removed Authority of the Consuls . The 1 life may not seems much but helps boosting the team using Archangel of Thune and Ajani's Pridemate , and with one or two Angel of Vitality will bring a lot of +1/+1 counters to the battlefield. Let me know if i could improve it even more. Thanks again.

Nice to see someone else starting their modern life with Soul Sisters, in fact it's still my main deck and even now i'm still tweaking it to make it better. What you need to know about modern is that it's blazing fast. You need to get going as fast as possible. There are a couple of cards here that are very...meh. While Ajani's Pridemate becomes the biggest card in the deck, Serra Ascendant is how you're going to win most games. Because of that, its just about required to run 4 Serra Ascendant in this deck, as well as 4 Martyr of Sands . The reasoning behind that is the turn 2 combo in which turn 1 you play Serra Ascendant then turn two play Martyr of Sands , immediately crack it for 9-12 life, get to 30+ life turn 2 and get the +5/+5 on Serra Ascendant then attack for 6 lifelink damage. You also need to get a set of Path to Exile because it is the strongest 1 mana removal in white. Having that will but you in a huge advantage. Trust me when i say this, DO NOT RUN Kabira Crossroads !!!! THE 2 LIFE IN EXCHANGE FOR A TAPPED LAND IS NOT WORTH IT!! I use to have it in mine and wow, was it mega mega slow to get going with something like that. Militia Bugler is extremely slow and restrictive, you need to go for Ranger of Eos because it can let you bring out stuff like 2 soul sisters, 1 Serra Ascendant and 1 Martyr of Sands , all your bread and butter. I would personally recommend Ranger-Captain of Eos becuase its 3 mana instead of 4, while it only gets 1 creature instead of two, it only costs 3 mana and has the added ability of being able to be sacrificed to stop any sort of kill spells / control spells for the rest of that turn so you can end the game without having a fat Cryptic Command come out to tap all our creatures. I would maybe also say to check out my decklist for soul sisters, even though its 2-4 times more expensive, see if you get any ideas from it, If you wanna talk mono white lifegain cards let me know because I can go on about them all day :)

I’d suggest pulling the Guildgates and replacing them with Blossoming Sands which just does more for you on the board in terms of lifegain mechanics, if you draw one later in the game. Also, if you’re running three Sunpetal Grove you should consider pulling three basic Forest and two basic Plains to run a full play set, plus four Temple Garden and enjoy some turn 2 instabuff on a pair of Charmed Stray or attacking/playing on turn 3 a 3/3 Ajani's Pridemate after dropping that 2020 lifegain dual land.

The new M20 set makes decks like M Gideon possible. Ajani's Pridemate and company seem to work better in a deck like Ajani M.

A very similar deck that I had, evolved into Ajani M simply because green proliferate just boosts Ajani's Pridemate and company sooooo well.

I also built a mono-white life-gain deck based on Gideon's Company which looks very promising, but I haven't got round to testing it - see M Gideon.

Your deck seems like it will probably have some mana problems. I'd add around 4 lands, and some ramp like Wayfarer's Bauble , Traveler's Amulet , and Commander's Sphere .

Your deck is also kinda... unfocused. I wouldn't run Ajani's Welcome or Ajani's Pridemate outside of a lifegain deck. Same for Auramancer , Ajani's Chosen , Sigil of the Empty Throne or Hall of Heliod's Generosity and enchantment decks.

If you want your deck to be more flying focused, i'd add some of the following cards: Windreader Sphinx , Prognostic Sphinx , Inspired Sphinx , Azor, the Lawbringer , Sephara, Sky's Blade , Winged Words , Empyrean Eagle , Warden of Evos Isle , Thunderclap Wyvern , Archon of Redemption , and/or Gravitational Shift
