Phelgming. Launch the Fleet is a very awesome card for what i am doing and a great alpha strike enabler i will have to try and fit that in. i have looked at Blessed Alliance and want to make it fit but not sure where and how to put it i have decent control atm but it never hurts to have more in my playgroup. Blinding Beam may have to make it in though it would help in games vs my playgroup.

Thanks for the suggestions! and the upvote!

Looks pretty good. Might need a stronger wincon since you don't have any evasion. Also might benefit from more options in the sideboard. Below is a mix of suggestions appropriate for main and sideboards in no particular order.

Riot Control , Unbreakable Formation , Blessed Alliance , Celestial Purge , Sanctimony , Ordeal of Heliod , Nevermore , Teyo, the Shieldmage , Oblivion Ring , Pithing Needle , Chalice of Life  Flip, Abzan Falconer , Tuskguard Captain , Inspiring Call

I like soul sisters, but I had some opinions on some cards in this deck. Cathedral Sanctifier just does not feel like it does much. 3 life is not that much, especially when you are gaining so much life. Rhox Faithmender feels like a "win more" card, as it is only really good when you are gaining a lot of life, and when you are gaining a lot of life, you are winning, so it becomes irrelevant quickly. It might be nice in the sideboard to maximize your lifegain against burn, and a big but makes it less likely to die to Lightning Bolt . Crested Sunmare is only good if you can play a creature every turn, and I would recommend Archangel of Thune over it. Blessed Alliance is most commonly going to be used to force an opponent to sacrifice an attacking creature because you have an overflow of life already and your creatures are usually frail, so you don't want to chump block with them. Condemn can have the effect of Blessed Alliance for cheaper. You also get to choose the target. Aerial Responder , while having a good rate, unfortunately doesn't cut it for modern, as you want your creatures to have an effect besides just attacking. To keep my hand filled, I use cards like Thraben Inspector and Squadron Hawk (a playset for obvious reasons). To lean heavily into the life gain archetype and guarantee more redundancy, you will want a full playset of each of your main sisters. Also, if you want to gain lots of life at one time, instead of Cathedral Sanctifier , you can run Martyr of Sands , allowing you to turn a Serra Ascendant on on turn two if you'r lucky.

Sorry for this essay on the inner workings of soul sisters.

Forgot to mention Blessed Alliance seems better than kitchen finks in this list especially since you can get it back off snapcaster

Thanks for the suggestion Skinken! It does seem like good interaction, especially in 1:1 where you can spend 4 mana repeatedly to lock someone out of noncreature spells. I'll try it instead of Blessed Alliance , which had a similar idea of repeatable attacker sacrifice.

I have to accept my good matches and my bad matches. Now that Shadow is being more popular and burn still on the rise i can now play Blessed Alliance if i so choose. but bogles has slowly gone away. people are more affraid to keep playing it now that we are getting a new edict at 2 mana. but its mulligan issue could be saved with london mulligan. As of now i accept my fate with that deck and just hope for the best. I am picking my battles, you can only play so many sideboard cards and the way i see i think i might only have 2 flex spots in my board. I love the cards you mentioned, i have played lantern scout before, but the lifegain against bogles isnt enough.
