Hi creepergreen,

Apothecary Initiate, Serene Steward, Soulmender and Cradle of Vitality all have issues, mostly that the effect costs mana or requires you to tap a creature. The most common life gain deck in Modern is Soul Sisters, named so for Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. If your wanting to avoid that route then maybe a more aggro focused list with Lone Rider  Flip and Ajani, Caller of the Pride.

You might also want to consider Awe Strike, Kabira Crossroads and Authority of the Consuls. Another option is you look at a mechanic like Extort, see Blind Obedience as an example. Or look at alternative (but based on life gain) win conditions like Chalice of Life  Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Sovereign or finally Divinity of Pride.

Whatever you decide, I hope this helps and have fun brewing your deck.

kykolo i had Chalice of Life  Flip but i play semi-regularly against too many control decks, and Elixir of Immortality offered a nice alternative to all those cards in my damn graveyard. i'm gonna put it back in the sideboard. i'll think about getting Odric, Lunarch Marshal in there but will def add some Shambling Vent!

Well, i would suggest Chalice of Life  Flip so you have some thing that help get your life up, and then kill your opponent. As much as Sunscorch Regent look good, it's mana cost make him inefficient. I would instead play Odric, Lunarch Marshal so you can give lifelink and other keyword to all your creature. In fact, i think you should lower all your mana curve. Putting thing like Sacred Cat for exemple or even some Fiendslayer Paladin. To reach a competitive level, you'll also need to remplace your land by shock land and add some fetch, even though they cost life(and shit tons of money) cause being fast is very important in MTG. Also think about adding someShambling Vent.

I can't really give as much info as firebird did but I can still give you some card names here and there. Maybe a Gilded Lotus,Lotus Petal, and a Chalice of Life  Flip might help you out. IDK the first two are to help with the not enough mana problem and the last one is to gain you some life then kill your opponents quickly. FYI I do budget decks most of the time. But I could never make a budget deck for angels that would work properly. In angels and my opinion I think that you just about have to go all out on the angels because if they don't work together then that will cause some serious problems late game if you reach there without them working all together.

Mmmm.... why play Unclaimed Territory in a monocolored deck with different creature types?

In the pile of removal, you could add a couple of Mutilate instead of a Vraska's Contempt and Grasp of Darkness. A bit more Liliana of the Dark Realms, and you'll hit your land drops every turn.

Black Knight seems random. Could be Geralf's Messenger (for resilience to removal), could be Gatekeeper of Malakir (for removal with legs), could be Vampire Nighthawk (for lifegain and deterring attackers)... or something else.

Do you have a plan for flipping Chalice of Life  Flip? Or is it just there to give you 1 life every turn? This might seem a bit abstract, but the lifegain from Duress could be a good bit better than either of the lifegain cards you're using, simply because it might remove a card from your opponents hand, that will cost you a lot more life than the lifegainers will give in any game where they don't come down right away. Or you could play Tendrils of Corruption in place of some of your removal, for even more swamps-matter, removal, and lifegain (in one bundle).

Great deck! It has something fun going on though needs some editing.

Abzan Battle Priest could be your best friend here. Think of him as the start of you mid-game hinge where you start to turn from life gain to attacking. Another hinge here is your Chalice of Life  Flip as it flips to start draining your opponent. What seems to work here is also Ajani's Pridemate, Oreskos Sun Guide, and Ajani, Mentor of Heroes (another one of these in the deck could be great). Feed the Clan from your maybeboard would be good here as well, and maybe think about adding Honor's Reward, Archangel of Thune, and Dromoka's Command (or maybe just sideboard this). In order to make room for these guys though, I would cut most of your green creatures (except, maybe, Ageless Entity, the gods, Bow of Nylea, Search for Tomorrow, and Explosive Vegetation; basically anything that isn't taking advantage of your primary strategy. If you're worried about early game mana, Birds of Paradise could be in your future or a similar one drop.

Hope this is helpful!

Hey I think your card choices are pretty solid, but the one thing that jumps out at me is your mana count. Its a little bit low considering you have a decent number of 5, 6 and 7 drops. I would get to 36-37 lands. I also like to run things like Tithe, Land Tax, and Gift of Estates to make sure that Im hitting my land drops through out the game.

As far as inclusions, I think Sunscorch Regent is a must. Its just a great commander card.

I am not sure that Aether Vial is entirely necessary. Its a great card for 60 card formats, but I'm not sure about its ability in commander. Chalice of Life  Flip is fun but probably a bit underwhelming, just keep an eye on how it performs, same as Pontiff of Blight seems like it might be a bit slow, just keep an eye on it.

Since you'll have a lot of life, things like Moonlight Bargain and Promise of Power and Greed should be pretty good. Well of Lost Dreams is also good in life gain decks.

A little more ramp wouldn't hurt either, i like Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo

Hope this helps!
