Beacon of Immortality Discussion

PlattBonnay: You kind of have to see Sorin's Vengeance in a bigger picture. Yes, it is a very situational card. However, 10 life lost is nothing to scoff at. Especially considering that I will be playing this later in the game when people have lost a good amount of life. With a combo like Sanguine Bond + Sorin's Vengeance I could either hit someone with 20 life in the face, or I could deal 10 damage to 2 people. I've been on the fence about Fell the Mighty it could be good in some situations, but I'll probably just cut it.
Daedalus19876: I do like Aetherflux Reservoir and Beacon of Immortality (especially the beacon) and I know that Curse of Vitality isn't the strongest curse out there. But, it provides incentive for people to attack someone I see as a threat. I feel Curse of Vitality is a decent incentive. Whenever I attack I get 2 life, and when someone else attacks they get 2 life and I get 2 life.
Thanks for the suggestions guys!

Looks like a decent start! If you're going full blown lifegain, I'd say you're missing a few things. Aetherflux Reservoir is a staple for Oloro, and should be here. Karlov of the Ghost Council is a great source of removal and should also probably be here, as with Ivory Tower. I'd also recommend a bit more ramp, like Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, and Mind Stone. Maybe Chromatic Lantern. Beacon of Immortality, too, perhaps? I'm not really sure where you're going besides lifegain, but I'd suggest Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, and Sphere of Safety. I'll leave a link to my own Oloro for reference, if you want to check it out. Good luck with this! I'll be glad to help out if you need more advice!

Nah I wouldn't say you are crazy at all. I just think Wizards just wanted to preempt the Ixalan Vamps by giving a Commander for them in the form of Edgar. But to answer the question overall I would say that White does bring quite a bit. As of right now I would also agree that White only acts as support for the deck. Which in theory and in practice isn't bad at all per se but it does lack Vamp creature support currently. Removal is a perfect example and also you see cards that help out like Blind Obedience other cards that help out are the life-gain ones of which White has a lot of like Boon Reflection or Beacon of Immortality. Which conveniently Vampires really like. I can go on but for the most part like you said until Ixalan we are mainly seeing White purely as a support color nothing more and certainly nothing less.

As a fellow cleric tribal enthusiast I appreciate where you are trying to go with the deck but you seem to be suffering some of the same issues I ran into myself, namely not having focused synergies that build into a win condition.
A strong sub theme of your deck seems to revolve around life gain, so with that in mind lets add to and weaponize this sub theme into win conditions. I agree with kamelyan that you should add Conspiracy as its quite nasty with Rotlung Reanimator and Cabal Archon, the only reason I don't run these two in my cleric deck is the hardcore clash with Angel of Glory's Rise. Beacon of Immortality and Test of Endurance make for an interesting and intractable win condition that plays along with your life gain theme for surprise victories. Stern Judge with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth can be nasty repeatable drain where you use your life gain to stay ahead of other peoples dwindling life totals. Also, consider Greed and Erebos, God of the Dead for further card draw that works with your life gain. Also Boon Reflection might be useful as well.
Some general replacements that might serve you better would be Scholar of Athreos over Pious Evangel Flip, the drain effect is a nice mana dump, Frontline Medic over Banisher Priest allows you to play more aggressively and the counter ability can catch people by surprise and Grand Abolisher over Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, the Captain generates tokens far to slowly and often requires you to over extend to make it any good.
For additional tribal removal options consider Kor Sanctifiers, War Priest of Thune, Leonin Relic-Warder and Reliquary Monk. Although I find Reliquary Monk and Relic-Warder to be more tricky to use without a sacrifice outlet.
I hope this helps you, I look forward to seeing where you take the deck.

Ilmu011 Yeah I considered it for sure but I'm not sure it is a great fit here since I cast at most 2 spells a turn. I may end up cutting something to try it out later though, thanks.
KeelHaul10 thanks for that suggestion! I just ordered a copy, I'm thinking I may drop Beacon of Immortality for it but I'm not sure. Authority of the Consuls and Soul's Attendant are too good for such a small investment but I'll take cutting it into consideration. Thanks again.
