Chalice of Life Discussion

If you're looking to gain a ton of life through high-toughness creatures, Angelic Chorus and/or Proper Burial might be up your alley!

Some other cards that seem to fit the theme include Archangel of Thune, Divinity of Pride, Serra Ascendant, Slaughter and Chalice of Life  Flip. You should consider some of them!

Thanks for the advice. I agree with you, many of those cards are very good while still budget friendly, but I've never been a fan of losing too much life without much choice. Fleshbag Marauder is always fun though and I really like Obelisk of Urd! I'll definitely consider putting them in.

I have to admit I disagree with you about Planar Bridge. Being commander I don't rely on the card but if it does come out, the ability to put search for cards like Death Baron, Endless Ranks of the Dead or Coat of Arms and put them straight onto the battlefield is incredibly useful and has definitely won me a few games. I agree that Chalice of Life  Flip is out of place and I should probably take it out but it's always nice to sit there and gain a tiny bit of life here and there, and seeing your opponent's face on the odd time it combo's with Trespasser's Curse makes it worth it to me.

OK the first thing i have noticed is you are running a deck of 65 cards. Cut those down to 60, thats the minimum size of a deck but also the beste because you want to draw your cards as often or likely as possible.

The second is, you are playing not enough lands to play 5 drops consistant. normally decks with spells that have cards costs of 5 or even 4 are playing 24-25 lands.

The third thing to notice is, you dont have any real synergies or such the only one i notice is the amount of lifegain and your Chalice of Life  Flip.

Maybe you want to run Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood for an actual infinite loop or something. But how its looking now its just putting out creatures in hope they dont get destroyed to beat him down.

maybe put in some more control elements like Mortify but cheaper: Anguished Unmaking.

You could play some cool reanimate stuff like playing Gravecrawler and Bloodghast along with your Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat and an sec engine Viscera Seer, Nantuko Husk to deal damage and get them out of the graveyard again.

But for now i dont know what strategy you want to go for. Those are just a few hints to fuel ideas. I could help you more if you know what you want to do in particular in advance of playing creatures with lifelink. :D

Phyrexian Delver, Graveborn Muse, Corpse Augur, Corpse Connoisseur, Fleshbag Marauder, Victimize and Obelisk of Urd are all budget friendly and solid improvements over Necromaster Dragon, Walking Corpse, Abattoir Ghoul, Desiccated Naga, Thraben Foulbloods and Tattered Mummy.
Planar Bridge and Chalice of Life  Flip, while great cards in general, seem out of place here. I imagine both cards will do close to nothing a lot of the time, so they should probably go.

Way to many 1 Drops. Than i would reduce the deck to 60 cards. Most of it would be Lands. Maybe some editing with the cards in the deck, except for one:

Creatures (22):4x Soul Warden,4x Pride Guardian,4x Suture Priest,2x Transcendent Master,2x Rhox Faithmender,2x Hero of Bladehold,2x Archangel of Thune,2x Felidar Sovereign

Planeswalker (2):2x Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Sorcery, Instant, Arftifact, Enchantements (13)4x Secure the Wastes,2x Chalice of Life  Flip,3x Proper Burial,4x Sram's Expertise (new card)

Lands (23)4x Emeria, The Sky Ruin,2x Mistveil Plains,17x Plains,

Give it a try, have fun ;)

And after posting all of that, I see that you have Chalice of Life  Flip already in there. My mistake! Hopefully my suggestions aren't super expensive (some of them are I know), but I also play on a budget of 150-250$ per deck as well. So I can understand the sting of seeing an awesome card, but it being too expensive to gain a small benefit.

I would say try to look at a Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck. It is a little more token/combo based instead of lifegain/drain, but they have a good amount of W/B cards that can go into any W/B deck.

One card I can say (depending on preference and what your playgroup allows) is Exquisite Blood . With sanguine bond, you immediately win through a loop. All you need is one life gain or an opponent to lose life.

Also, depending on your win preferences, you can run Serra Ascendant or Chalice of Life  Flip and its flip side Chalice of Death or even Felidar Sovereign .

In general, extort is more of a "bonus" than a reliable win con. Life gain is meant to be annoying, and constant. Imagine dropping a Phyrexian Processor and making 30/30's every turn, giving them lifelink, then repeating. Sound gross?
