Chaplain's Blessing Discussion

luther on Oloro zombies

For starters, never play any card that only gains you life once Chaplain's Blessing. Especially in commander.

Take a look at your non zombie creatures, and with each one ask yourself "what does this do for my zombies?" Ex. "What does Avacyn, Angel of Hope do for my zombies? She gives them indestructible!"

Finally, my actual suggestions for cards to put in. Cemetery Reaper, Rooftop Storm, Death Baron, Diregraf Captain, Gempalm Polluter, Ghoulraiser, Gravecrawler, Gravespawn Sovereign, Lich Lord of Unx, Lord of the Undead, Risen Executioner, Undead Warchief, Zombie Master, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Gisa and Geralf, The Scarab God, Anointed Procession, Call to the Grave, Dread Summons, Grave Titan, and Endless Ranks of the Dead

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!

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

Legendxp on Life with Licia

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.
