Chaplain's Blessing Discussion

Pieguy396 on Kokusho the lifegain dragon

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:


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!

Improve your curve. (Less expensive cards)

Get more control cards. Some removal spells.

Get rid of your Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. The card is served better elsewhere. And it's good trading material.

Don't play cards that only gain you life. Drop Chaplain's Blessing

That will improve your deck :)

Some cheap cards, (moneywise) that you could be looking into getting instead are. Mana Leak, Detention Sphere/(Or Oblivion Ring is sphere is too expensive). Condemn, Condescend, Opt, Think Twice, Journey to Nowhere, Serum Visions, Glacial Fortress, and Glimmer of Genius.

If you splashed green, you could have access to Feed the Clan and Life Goes On. Otherwise, don't forget Chaplain's Blessing, Lone Rider  Flip and Glory-Bound Initiate

Chaplain's Blessing might be faster than Soul Warden, especially since its just a 1/1 creature so it might be destroyed before you can use it

You can only use cards that have other mana symbols printed on the card if they are in the reminder text. (Like Charmed Pendant).

Wow, I must be blind. I thought you had Wall of Glare and not Wall of Reverence in your deck already. Derp

I'd suggest some cards like Rest for the Weary, Chaplain's Blessing, and Whitesun's Passage to help with getting your commander out early.

I would highly suggest Chaplain's Blessing, as it is 5 life on turn 1.

From my experience with BW lifegain as a casual player, some cards that will work well are thins like Ajani's Pridemate ($0.40-$1.00) as it will get bigger for each instance of life gain. Another method is with Festival of Trokin ($0.36-$0.99) or Chaplain's Blessing for quick life. Something that could really benefit you is Whip of Erebos as it would give all of your creatures lifelink. A potential win condition is with Gnawing Zombie as you will be able to start killing them from your tokens (in case there is no way for you to deal damage directly with your creatures) but I truly like the deck.
