Heya, I'm attempting to build a deck built around abusing Lifegain dorks like Martyr of Sands and Children of Korlis. I've rebuilt the deck around three times, and I still don't know if it's functional by any means, so I think I'm going to reach out for help on this one. Retrying Martyr.

Thank you in advance!

I love cleric tribal, I realize this is a jank deck but with some focus it can also be effective. I think the first trick is to synergize with your command and find clerics that can be sacrificed for gains the second is to find ways to drain their health quickly so you can focus on the first.

The best way to life drain is probably with Exsanguinate, Debt to the Deathless, Torment of Hailfire or similar spells so that your commanders to hand ability can be utilized.

The next one is not quite so easy and needs tuning to make really good, but I would recommend clerics like Benevolent Bodyguard, Children of Korlis, Dark Supplicant with Scion of Darkness, Frontline Medic, Nova Cleric, Remorseful Cleric, Sanctum Guardian and Selfless Spirit for creatures that can be utilized well with your commander and as a bonus its flavorful to have fanatical priests dedicated to some grim god.

Generally useful clerics matter cards would be Edgewalker, Ancestor's Prophet, Battletide Alchemist, Rotlung Reanimator and Whipgrass Entangler.

A little combo for Starlit Sanctum is Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor to gain some arbitrarily high life total.

In tribe Card draw considerations are Tymna the Weaver, Bygone Bishop and Twilight Prophet.

I don't know if you will continue to develop this but I would like to see your take on it as you evolve it.

Hmm, it depends on the life gain you will get. The problem with most Orzhov decks is that the card draw is fairly limited to only black, the draws we can get is based on life. What's great is Ad Nauseam is an instant speed spell, paying 15 life is not the worse for refilling your hand for 7 cards. The downside is yes you reveal but at the same time that's 7 cards more resources than your opponents. You will also negate the life loss with the gain from your Clerics, that's my perspective on it.

That aside their are a couple other suggestions, like Gadiaten recommended earlier Lifeline is a hell of a card in Ayli. Oversold Cemetery is another create card to keep that pressure on board. Academy Rector is a cleric that can grab you any enchantment card straight to the battlefield. Alms Collector is like the more fair version of Notion Thief but it is worth consideration for a slot. Children of Korlis is hidden tech with life loss like say Necropotence or like I said Ad Nauseam :P. Custodi Soulcaller is a decent card that reanimates as well. Ethersworn Canonist is great when slowing down opponent's and vindicating their board with Ayli. Same with Leonin Arbiter, taxes them for searching their library. Sanctum Prelate is also another good card for disruption. Order of Whiteclay can be used for recursion as well, although a bit slow.

Priest of Gix can lead to ramp if you have Edgewalker on field as well. Twilight Prophet is also a card I like cuz it gains you life and card draw. Same with Tymna the Weaver. Weathered Wayfarer is a card that also fixes your mana.

Some protection cards against removal I would consider although cmc wise quite a bit is Fountain Watch and Teferi's Protection. Selfless Spirit is great for protection as well.

Some really good cards for Oloro are Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign since Oloro just kinda sits his lazy ass in the command zone forever, you'll be gaining a heap of life and these cards make you win if you have a certain amount of life, a combo that is good for any life gain oriented decks is the Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond combo as all it takes to trigger is your gain 2 life at upkeep trigger and you win.

Not got enough card draw? fret not as cards like Greed and Necropotence can provide you with it at a cheap one life per card. if your creatures are killed, use Phyrexian Reclamation. Want even more life? try Paradox Haze to give you not one upkeep, BUT TWO.

I would also recommend a few tutors as black is by far the strongest colour for tutors. I would recommend Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition, Lim-Dul's Vault and anything else.

The usual win condition I see with Oloro decks is they combo off and win that way, some combos that work well with Oloro other than the Exquisite/bond combo is probably the following Reveillark/Karmic Guide+ any sac outlet and something dumb like Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat

Aetherflux Reservoir+Children of Korlis Nuke two players with one stone.

create infinite mana somehow and then play Debt to the Deathless to drain everyone to death.

overall I would say this deserves an upvote because as much as I hate Oloro decks, I'll admit they are effective at what they do.

Flooremoji the Trespassing Souleater is meant to also be a life outlet to fuel Children of Korlis

Immolating Souleater is the wincon now. Pairs nicely with Children of Korlis too. Spend almost all your health to buff him and then get it back with the children.

Children of Korlis could be kind of dope in here especially the children with aetherflux Reservoir. Dome sacrifice the children Dome again.
