HeroInMyOwnMind on Life is good for draw

I would abandon cards that serve a limited function, like Congregate.

You can find cards that serve a similar function, but also have other applications. Riot Control, Exsanguinate, Death Grasp, and Debt to the Deathless can all gain you as much or more life, but also prevent damage or damage your opponents. They last 3 combo well with Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood as well.

I also feel cards like Crystal Ball, Trepanation Blade, Treasure Cruise, Read the Bones, Sword of Fire and Ice, and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are not doing you any favors. They seem out of place in your deck, or have cards that are much more efficient.

Consider cards replacing them with cards like Rhystic Study, Staff of Nin, or Mind's Eye for card draw, and cards like Beacon of Immortality, Invincible Hymn, and Celestial Mantle to get more use out of your win condition cards.

You also have Banishing Light and Dictate of Heliod that could easily be replaced with cards like Vindicate, Utter End, True Conviction, Sunbond, and Cradle of Vitality. Not to mention you have access to Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor.

You also have access to really good creature cards like Angel of Despair, Ashen Rider, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Felidar Sovereign, Grand Abolisher, Kokusho, the Evening Star, Purity, Resolute Archangel, Rhox Faithmender, Serra Ascendant, Serra Avatar, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter.

If you focus more on a specific goal, and cut out the cards that don't play into that win condition, you will have better luck finishing games. Rather than weigh each card individually to determine if it is a good card, compare the cards you put in your deck to any other card that could take it's place, and decide if being a "good card" specifically means it is a "good fit".

I'm actually gonna go in on saying that I prefer Ashen Rider to Terastodon. First off, they have the same CMC, so we can ignore differences there. The effect is remarkably similar. Terastodon obviously hits one additional permanent, and has all it's triggers up front, but Ashen Rider doesn't have the restriction of non-creature,and exiles. The thing is, there is typically only one permanent in play that is demanding an answer, and exiling it is very strong. The second and third permanents are somewhat gratuitous, I've found. Also, Ashen Rider provides a better blocker because it has flying and people don't want to attack into it. Now, I think Terastodon might be better in your deck, but they are extremely similar cards. Don't discount the Ashen Rider too readily.

Also, I just wanted to mention Miren, the Moaning Well. This thing gets a lot more life than High Market and doesn't cost oodles of money like Diamond Valley. I think it's better than Shizo, Death's Storehouse, but I've never played with that land so I can't be sure. I also like it more than Thespian's Stage, because I've never had the time to make it a copy of something in any game that was actually close.

Ashen Rider good card, but not needed for a Kaalia of the Vast as fexxianosch said, its ether last destruction, or pump out Avacyn, Angel of Hope and drop Wrath of God or Damnation so good but not needed

fexxianosch on Kaalia, Queen of Havoc

3 weeks ago

Ashen Rider is not that good, because you can nott cheat it out with Kaalia of the Vast...

I guess because this deck really wants to destroy lands and use the Kaalia trigger, 8cmc not cheatable archon is... meh
