Chalice of Life 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,

Soul's Attendant (if nothing else, switch out two of the Soul Wardens to lessen the effectiveness of cards like Bile Blight and Echoing Decay). Chalice of Life Flip would work well, as would many of the monowhite planeswalkers. Ajani Goldmane and Ajani, Caller of the Pride take advantage of the lifegain best and most versions of Elspeth are good with weenies.

I have a friend who plays sealed because he objects to net decking and tuning, because it requires too much time and money. I have a slightly different approach.
I find a mechanic I like. I'm going to use Soul Sisters as an example because it's my first true attempt at a competitive deck, and I've been tuning endlessly.
Adjust the net deck for your budget. Serra costs $50 for a play set at minimum. I therefore opted for Chalice of Life Flip because it has similar effects for about 5% of the price. PTE (pre-reprint) is about the edge of what I'm willing to pay, hence the two-of in my deck.
Adjust for the meta. First, the Artifact hate, and second Fatal Push, AKA Bane of the White Weenie. The Chalice is immune to Push, as it is an artifact, and any pumped creature traditionally in the deck falls easily. Therefore, I have chosen Divinity of Pride. It is within budget, and impossible to destroy with a 1-drop. It's a little bit slow, but my wallet doesn't really want anything faster.

Yeah, there's multiple approaches, and I'm still adjusting my lifegain deck as to whether to include, and how many of Chalice of Life Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, or Felidar Sovereign to include as alternate win conditions besides Serra Ascendant and It That Rides as One Flip. But I figured I'd bring them to his attention and let him decide if they work for him, since it's pretty complicated to decide what the best option(s) are.

I've been playing with a mono-white deck with some similar themes. A cheaper, but more restricted version of Dazzling Reflection would be Awe Strike. Other cards worth considering: Cathedral Sanctifier, Well of Lost Dreams, Aetherflux Reservoir, Lone Rider Flip, Chalice of Life Flip, Survival Cache, Serra Ascendant, Wall of Reverence, Ajani's Pridemate, and Rhox Faithmender.

I have been piecing together Soul Sisters Chalice Variation for a while now. It has a couple glaring weaknesses against Modern decks. Chalice of Life Flip is a primary win condition, but is doomed on its own so long as the meta requires artifact hate.
Also, Oblivion Ring and Path to Exile are a tad redundant, so as I get more Paths (with the reprint they're within reach, I will phase out Rings and have 4 combined, such that I open up a 4 slot to add a secondary win condition. Here are my options as I see them:
- Add 2 more lands and 2 Elspeth, Knight-Errant.
- Add Lone Rider Flip
- Add Kor Firewalker
- Add Serra Ascendant
- Add Ranger of Eos
- Add Archangel of Thune
Many of these options are simply beyond what I'm willing to pay. Any ideas?

These cards are still awkward... They have low impact on the early game, which Modern needs.
They all sum 14 slots (accounting for the 2 lands i think you should let go)... Let's say you switched them for:
Total of another 14 cards. Take a look at them. Compare their power to the other cards I said that are "awkward"... These cards all carry more weight with them. This is called card quality.
You'd be able to remove opposing threats more efficiently, make the opponent sacrifice troublesome threats you can't really remove (Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, for example). And you'd be able to preemptively disrupt their hand with more discard.
I believe building a competitive Vampire deck in Modern is hard, but possible. I just think you should focus on more efficient cards.
As for your sideboard, try to focus on beating decks you have trouble beating. Let's say you have issues against Storm or Scapeshift... then think of adding Duress or Lost Legacy in your SB. Against graveyard decks like Collected Melira, Dredge or BGx Delirium: Leyline of the Void/Relic of Progenitus. Against Tron: Pithing Needle, Rain of Tears, Duress, Thoughtseize and discard in general. Against creature-based decks (with small creatures): Drown in Sorrow/Flaying Tendrils. And so on.
Try to focus on adding cards that'll help with other decks in the meta. Blood Tribute only looks cool, but it is 6 mana to cast... and you could do many more relevant things with 6 or less mana... like Damnation or Batterskull, Wurmcoil Engine.
