Laronve great question friend! So the first thing about Rebirth is that it is not a dead card and can be used outside of combos. If you are familiar with the Razakats strategy that became famous from Shaper, you'll notice Doomed Traveler was the card of choice in the Orzovh package. After much testing, if you go full aggro, red is better than white, while white is more midrange. Even then we didn't like being on Grim Initiate either. This is where Rebirth comes in. It gives razaketh 3 tutors instead on 1; yes you can do it with only Dockside, but sometimes it pays to layer your deck out a lil bit more for the sake of redundancy.

For the Dockside Reclamation line, you make use of Children of Korlis & Entomb to keep your life at bay while netting mana. You sac the dockside to Razaketh for Korlis, Entomb or Wheel of Fortune (if an opponent has Smothering Tithe), Silence, so 14 life will be used between him and Reclamation. You Entomb for Korlis and cast it, sac it to gain back your life and repeat until you feel you have enough mana you use Searing Touch to burn the table.

All of these cards can be used in other combos as well or even as 1 time uses, which is good for any deck.

Very cool deck! Though not a cleric or demon, you might like Blood Speaker . Children of Korlis is a neat cleric that works nicely with Ravos, Doom Whisperer, Razaketh, and Vilis. The Children also have a fun place in the history of magic. Like the pentagram in the original art of Unholy Strength , Children of Korlis drew the ire of many parents for having the words "Sacrifice Children". Then there's the classic cleric combo: Daru Spiritualist + Shaman en-Kor , which allows you to gain an arbitrarily large amount of life with Starlit Sanctum. Toss in a Transmutation and you can use the Sanctum to take out an opponent with this combo. Other cards you might consider are Bishop of Binding , Blind Zealot , Custodi Soulcaller , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , and Heirloom Blade .

Children of Korlis is a pretty solid idea for the list, particular if an early Kambal (for some reason) was not ideal for your board. Generally, I find the life total gravitates around 40+ for this Deck... However, there are some major pay offs with Korlis: 1. Immediately Tutorable, even Ranger-Captain of Eos finds him and 2. Helps ups go through twice as many Cards. I like this addition a lot. Only good on Combo Turns, should Vilis be out though, that's one thing to bare in mind.

Any thoughts of running a psudo Tin Fins style card like Children of Korlis ?

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .

Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing  Flip.

Finally, stoneforge getting unbanned means that turn three Batterskull is on the menu, but also Sword of Light and Shadow .

Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.

austintayshus Originally I chose to cut out Aetherflux Reservoir due to the 50 life payment cost, but now that I remembered Children of Korlis and Tainted Sigil , I'll probably put it back in. As for the Soul Sisters. I know they'll give me a lot of life in the long run, but those small drops of life won't help me get Licia out quicky. Martyr of Sands , Chaplain's Blessing and other such cards will give me bursts of life to help me get Licia out much quicker (as early as turn 3).

Also, thank you for being my first commenter!

I'm a little surprised you're not running Aetherflux Reservoir

Also, I think you'll gain more life in the long run with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant than you will with Martyr of Sands and Children of Korlis

Neat deck!

Great deck!

I think Holy Light would be a great inclusion to the deck, as White has very few ways of dealing with masses of tokens efficiently. This card lets you do that without affecting your own smaller creatures.

You have Suture Priest twice in your list, under board control and Life Gain.

Survival Cache seems like a great card for your deck. You'll most likely be the player with the most life anyways, and this gives you two life gain triggers and will most likely draw you two cards.

I'm not sure how good something like Revitalize / Healing Hands / Renewed Faith would be, but getting a lifegain trigger and a card seems like a decent way to filter through your deck.

Children of Korlis could be a good "Fog" effect for you.

Exile seems like a good fit for removal in your deck.

Seems a shame to pass up on Martyr of Sands . It only gets you one trigger, but it's still a lot of life, which is worth something.

Seraph of Dawn is an absolute beast in this format. the big butt means it survives a lot of removal and combat, and putting equipment on it is amazing.

Along the same lines, Student of Ojutai really dishes out the lifegain for you on a great body, especially considering how few creatures you're playing.

I feel like most of your lifelink creatures are not really worth playing. They're going to be easily blocked and killed in most situations and not net you much of an advantage. I'd say only the ones that gain your some sort of card advantage are really worth playing. I could be wrong about Healer's Hawk, though.

Lastly, you have plenty of ways to protect your commander, but I would just like to suggest Angelic Renewal . You can play this before your commander and not have to hold mana up all the time for it. Same goes for Benevolent Bodyguard . This lets you play a much tighter, more efficient game plan.
