Chaplain's Blessing Discussion
1 day ago
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.
- Diabolic Tutor
- Razaketh's Rite
- Makeshift Mannequin
- Exhume (not Modern legal)
- Animate Dead (also not Modern legal)
- Rise from the Grave
- Obzedat's Aid
- Dread Return (also not Modern legal)
- Ever After
- Fearsome Awakening
- Karmic Guide (also not Modern legal)
If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:
- Nyx-Fleece Ram
- Sun Droplet
- Tithe Drinker
- Ajani's Pridemate
- Survival Cache
- Felidar Sovereign
- Lone Missionary
- Chalice of Life Flip
- Aetherflux Reservoir
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.

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).

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.
