I would add Athreos, God of Passage to burn your opponents.

Nice deck man +1!. One question..just to make sure if I got it right. For example, if I have on the field Athreos, God of Passage + Blood Artist + Cartel Aristocrat + Ornithopter, you basically have an infinite combo if the opponent refuses to pay 3 life due to Atheros right?

I think Zur the Enchanter should be your general. That way you will always get the apple of your eye, Tainted Remedy. Zur can fetch Athreos, God of Passage too! And would allow you to take out all those tutors and make room for cool stuff like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, Drogskol Reaver, Copy Enchantment, and Zur's Weirding, among others.

Seems like Wall of Shards should be here. Beacon of Immortality and Sun Titan too.

I'd consider cutting red entirely for a set of Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper, possibly still running martyr of sands, using black for cardraw to maintain the value of martyr. Although with all the token tools, an aristocrats package might work too.

I like the idea of making sisters super card advantagy and grindy. Something like Thoughtpicker Witch serving as a lock peice alongside some 1 drop spam and graveyard recursion perhaps, with ranger of eos keeping it running.

Still, I'll be interested in seeing what you come up with, black has some interesting tools like Plunge into Darkness, Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Athreos, God of Passage, Garza's Assassin and Profane Command.

I think you could go down some of your copies of Scrap Trawler for Foundry Inspector or Implement of Combustion. because you are always returning you artifacts with trawler and Myr Retriever there is no longer a consequence for your opponents to take the damage from Pia's Revolution and Athreos, God of Passage. If you make the artifacts themselves of more consequence then the opponents will actually need to take the damage. Otherwise you can just cut Athreos and Pia's and put in more artifact recursion.

If this deck wants to be competitive, branch out into black or white, drop the angels, and attempt to run some more card draw/hand disruption (Inquisition of Kozilek/Dark Confidant) or (Meddling Mage/Remand/Serum Visions). Being in multiple colors adds a lot to hatebears.

If you move into black, consider the following:

2-3x Inquisition of Kozilek

1-3x Thoughtseize (4-5x of both)

3-4x Dark Confidant

3-4x Tidehollow Sculler

0-1x Athreos, God of Passage

If you move into blue however, consider the following:

2-4x Meddling Mage

1-3x Judge's Familiar

0-3x Geist of Saint Traft

1-3x Reflector Mage

0-2x Sky Hussar

Thank you KINGofORESKOS for the suggestions, Deathgreeter and Auriok Champion are ones I missed and I think will defiantly find a way into the deck. Treasury Thrull I have a copy but was worried it was a bit high of a CMC but I think I may throw it in for the recursion which I admit i over looked a tad. Athreos, God of Passage I will defiantly add just waiting on my LGS to get a copy.

PS. I accidentally hit the X for Auriok when i didnt mean to, my bad haha

Nice job with this deck! You seem to have all the key cards, I just have a few suggestions. Deathgreeter is the opposite of the soul sisters (Soul's Attendant & Soul Warden), but he makes your opponents think twice before hurting your creatures. Auriok Champion is basically another soul sister, so you want want to consider him. Athreos, God of Passage is just another fun way to make your opponents lose life. If you like cards with extort, Treasury Thrull might work its way into your deck. Keep up the good work!
