Chalice of Life Discussion

Chaplain's Blessing can be replaced. There are much better one drops than that and you have plenty of life gain in your creatures already. Authority of the Consuls is one of the most underrated one drops IMO, but be ready to sideboard if your opponent plays few creatures. Journey to Nowhere is a cheaper Stasis in mana cost and isn't too expensive. Life gain will only help you so much in games that are drawn out. I'd also recommend a card that makes you hexproof to help protect your life total for Chalice of Life  Flip. I really like that card in this deck and I would go for a playset of that. Aegis of the Gods and True Believer will help protect your life gain strategy. You can attach Swiftfoot Boots to them as well for even more fun. Welding Jar to protect the Chalice or Boots too. Good luck!

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'm not fully sure whether you want a Kokusho-focused deck with a lifegain subtheme, or a lifegain-focused deck with a Kokusho subtheme, so I'll give you tips for both:

Kokusho-focused:

You generally want a lot of ways to find your Kokushos, as well as ways to return them from the graveyard, so I'll focus on those two.

If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:

I should also say that I'm generally not a fan of cards that do nothing but gain you life. Chaplain's Blessing and Alms of the Vein can be good, sure, but they generally don't actually do anything.

Regardless of which version you're actually looking for, I would also recommend adding in some more removal, probably at least 5 copies total of the following: Doom Blade, Murder, Oust, Condemn, Dismember.

In any case, good luck with your deck!

Looks fun. You may want to reconsider Crypt Ghast as you're in 3 colors and he might not be that reliable. If you do keep him you might want to grab Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Chalice of Life  Flip looks fun, You may want to throw in Fatestitcher to help you use it more (also Fatestitcher is just very versatile. You ahve enough Artifact ramp/fixing with the signets and Chromatic Lantern, you could easily cut Darksteel Ingot and Pristine Talisman. You have a lot of ways to gain life, but you might want a few cards that let you spend it like Toxic Deluge, Phyrexian Arena, or Necropotence

It's a good start, but I see some room for improvement. Some suggestions:

Erebos, God of the Dead : for card draw, life gain denial and a beefy indestructible blocker.

Tree of Perdition : Beefy blocker, could be a win-con and become a much bigger blocker.

Test of Endurance : Straight up win-con.

Archangel of Thune: Pumps up all your creatures when you gain life and has lifelink. Almost a win-con by itself.

Serra Ascendant: Immediately a 6/6 Lifelink flyer when you put em down, and can be a win-con early enough in the game.

Ordeal of Heliod: Puts counters on your creatures, gains you 10 life and since you're already running Sun Titan, has recursion.

True Conviction : Doublestrike and lifelink to all your creatures. Nuff Said.

Approach of the Second Sun: Gains you life and is an looming win-con that will have your opponents counting cards.

Treasury Thrull: Extort and has the ability to recur from your graveyard.

Righteous Confluence : A versatile options card, bare minimum, you gain 15 life for 5 mana.

Alhammarret's Archive : Double life gain and card draw...why not?

Elixir of Immortality : Your backup panic button if things go south. 5 life and rescue your graveyard.

Chalice of Life  Flip : Gain life on one side, 5 to opponents on the other.

Vault of the Archangel : A backup means to gain life and possibly gain control of board state. Also shows if your opponents are paying attention to all of your board state.

As far as swaps go:

Fumigate to replace Day of Reckoning it may be benefit you more to have a clean slate and gain life. Necromantic Selection may also be a good choice here too.

Gift of Immortality to replace Indestructibility -- I like Gift better as it works really well with ETB triggers, especially if it's life gain related and works great with...

Panharmonicon : A card I have really been enjoying since it's release. Works great with stuff like your Sun Titan, and Ashen Rider, or Angel of Despair. Also pairs really nicely with Mimic Vat if you got room.

Just some ideas from my experience play ultra life gain. Have fun!

Akkrand on Derevi I'd Tap That Shenanigans

Unfortunately, I think the Chalice of Life  Flip has the color identity because the Chalice of Death side has a color indicator, so wouldn't be legal in this deck.

Otherwise, I love the deck. Derevi is probably my favorite commander right now.

Yes they sure are, though I think the current 2 Elixir of Immortality are plenty (have always been enough for me so far). Chalice of Life  Flip and the talisman are fun, but I think the Bubbling Cauldron is already, more or less, doing the same thing when using the newts.

Skirsdag High Priest sounds great and the throne might help me pay the activation cost, Im definitly going to try running the priest, thanks!
