Auriok Champion Discussion

Nice deck! I am thinking of making a soul sisters deck as well!

Some cards to consider are Auriok Champion and Archangel of Thune.

Auriok Champion is good in either the main or sideboard as another way to gain life, and Archangel of Thune is a good way to end games.

Auriok Champion very good sister card that has some protection.

Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors are Norin and Glitterfang best friend.

How often do you flip Lone Rider?

If you want to keep with the strategy of gaining life to make your opponent lose life, I'd strongly suggest a more soul sisters like package (Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Auriok Champion). They all have the same effect as Ajani's Welcome, but since they themselves are creatures they will trigger the ability as well, and you can attack or block with them if you need to as well. In fact, most soul sister cards seem like good choices here. If you want to look at a pretty basic list, check mine out at Modern Soul.

Alternatively, if you want to double down on your vampire theme as well, you might try some cards like Blood Artist, which gets along well with the tokens and creature removal.

Also, if you want to make the deck more competitive in general, it's always a good idea to upgrade your mana base. While they may not be the flashiest cards, Godless Shrine and Marsh Flats will make sure your mana is more consistant, at the cost of a little life, and are the gold standard for modern lands in this color combination.

Yeah, that's fair. The only reason I didn't have more Auriok Champion before was simply because they were higher in price than I wanted for a deck that already does quite well against Burn.

Now that they're cheaper I really should be running 4, you're right.

I'd suggest 4x Auriok Champion and 3 each of Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. It evens the curve a little and Auriok Champion's abilities are very relevant against Burn, Death Shadow, etc.

This is a really strong budget list! Here's a list of some cheap mono white staples/suggestions:

Field of Ruin, Ghost Quarter and Aven Mindcensor. Already running Path.

Auriok Champion instead of Soul Warden.

Entrapment Maneuver removal and on theme.

Isolated Watchtower so good in mono color lists.

Dawn Charm no one sees it coming.

Leyline of the Meek pump and on theme.

Why not some Serra Ascendant?

And could you please me explain what are your win cons? Only Crested Sunmare? (Ajani Goldmane's ultimate only creates an easily destructible or blockable creature, so for me it isn't a win con)

You have no removals, no counters and no draw cards spells, meaning you just play on the draw. In my personal opinion you are underestimating too much your opponent's deck.

Cards you could consider are: Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Auriok Champion, Archangel of Thune, Ranger of Eos, Sun Titan, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Spectral Procession, Martyr of Sands, Baneslayer Angel, Honor of the Pure, Chalice of Life  Flip, Windbrisk Heights

crabclaw on Darien, King of Kjeldor Token/Lifegain

Snapshotdan -- Darien is somewhat unique in that any of his decks want to have damage lands because of his ability.

If Darien, King of Kjeldor is on the battlefield, any damage dealt to you creates that many 1/1 soldiers. So Tarnished Citadel, with Darien out, effectively has "Tap: Add one mana of any color, deal 3 damage to yourself, and create 3 1/1 soldier tokens.

With one single card like Auriok Champion on the field, Darien's controller doesn't lose any life in the above scenario. With more than one effect like that, you end up gaining life.
