Boon Reflection Discussion

Good Start here. I also built an orzhov lifegain deck early on when getting into EDH.
Some cards I'd rec:Rhox Faithmender, Wall of Limbs, Beacon of Immortality, Crypt Incursion, Boon Reflection, Celestial Mantle, One Thousand Lashes, Pillory of the Sleepless, Tainted Sigil, Chalice of Life Flip, Marble Chalice,

Cool looking cat deck. You might consider adding Ajani's Mantra for the theme and the subtle lifegain that rarely gets targeted by your opponents. Also Boon Reflection or something that really pumps up the gains you do make.

You said plenty that was helpful, freakingAud, and I'll respond to each paragraph in order.
When it comes to Soul Warden, Essence Warden, and Soul's Attendant, I might remove Ajani's Mantra and Angel's Grace to put in Soul Warden and Essence Warden. That way, I have a source of constant lifegain via Celestial Force, and I'll still have Sunscorch Regent, Soul Warden, and Essence Warden as sources of lifegain that trigger throughout the game. I would not be able to trigger lifegain through Suture Priest often enough because of the moderately low creature count in the deck, so it's not worth it to me.
For the mana creatures, Oracle of Mul Daya is going in, but I usually avoid mana dorks like Llanowar Elves and Birds of Paradise because they're so fragile. My playgroup doesn't specifically target anyone's mana sources very often, though the occasional board wipe (i.e. Wrath of God) has been known to happen and problematic artifacts have been known to cause players to overload Vandalblast. I feel safer in my playgroup running mana rocks.
I'm loathe to spend more than $25 on a card unless I really love it or need it (...that's why I bought a promo Treva), so I probably wouldn't spend about $60 on a Doubling Season for any deck that isn't a token or +1/+1 counter deck. It's too expensive to just serve a handful of purposes for the deck. I usually just want Ajani's +1 effects more than the ultimate. But, if I can -8 him, it's a good day, especially with Boon Reflection, Alhammarret's Archive, and/or Rhox Faithmender.

@Daedalus19876: SO far this deck has a 14 game winning streak with no losses at my lgs both 1v1 and 4 player.
Removed Always Watching (replaced with Norn's Annex, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim (the sacrifice wasn't utilized to full effect in this deck. Replaced with Weathered Wayfarer for utility.), Batterskull (too slow here. Replaced with Shambling Vent), Kokusho, the Evening Star (Will find better use in my tbb Meren deck, replaced with Luminarch Ascension because angels.), Well of Lost Dreams (too much mana sink for lifegain that was garnered through combat damage more than anything else. Replaced with Painful Quandary), Death Grasp (Useless after the first game I used it, replaced with Selfless Spirit), Necropotence (The drawing at the end of my turn was hurting my games and almost cost me one so it had to go. Replaced with Karn Liberated because just because), Boon Reflection (did little. Replaced with Aven Mindcensor for control), and Oblivion Ring (Slow removal. Replaced with Unmake).

So I don't really like Academy Rector here - you've only got one enchantment, which, granted, is a really good one, but if it's removed or already in your hand or you're out of creatures to use with it, Rector becomes a dead draw.
I'd add a few backups options, things like:
Furnace of Rath/Dictate of the Twin Gods which double's Brion's damage.
Angelic Accord which guarantees you an angel every turn you activate Brion, sac'ing the last angel you got.
Boon Reflection, in case you desperately need to survive.
Concerted Effort, to share the lifelink around.
Cradle of Vitality, to very quickly make things HUGE.
Celestial Convergence, to be rude.

Hah! Assault Formation could be interesting! I hadn't considered turning my defenders into damage threats as well!Axebane Guardian kinda feels like a less efficient Overgrown Battlement, though.Boon Reflection also bears some looking at. I played around with Rhox Faithmender but it was wonky for my mana curve, but the enchantment might work out better.
