Kasmina's trasmutation is a blue, weaker Darksteel Mutation

Daybreak Coronet , Hero of Iroas , Sram, Senior Edificer , Swords to Plowshares , Darksteel Mutation , and Faith's Fetters . Your deck could use more removal, cards draw, and less shroud effects, more hexproof.

ShadowGuard13 on Soul of the Tokens

Yes I have to agree that Midnight Guard is way two situational now that I look at it. It only goes infinite with Presence of Gond and that is way to narrow for the 2/3 stat line that he offers. There is also a couple voltron decks in my play group, so I will have to deal with commander damage at some point. I'll switch out Midnight Guard with Darksteel Mutation since I have a copy. I'll look into getting a copy of Conclave Tribunal , Ixalan's Binding , or Might of the Masses to replace Griffin Protector . I like Might of the Masses because of the modular nature. The deck comes in today, so I'll be back with updates from actually playing the deck!

Out of all the cards you listed I would cut the Griffin Protector first because the other two allow you to tap Emmara safer by making her unblockable or to power up another creature. But I also think that Midnight Guard is very situational in this deck. I think that cutting something to add some protection from commander damage is a good move, whether that be Conclave Tribunal , Darksteel Mutation , or even a combat trick (I like Might of the Masses , and it isn’t a dead card when commander damage isn’t a threat because you can always boost a lifelinker to help fight non-commander damage)

I agree with rangers. The big weakness of lifegain decks is commander damage. Something like Aurelia, the Warleader is rough for this deck to overcome, so Darksteel Mutation and Ixalan's Binding are both solid includes.

I am a big fan of Second Harvest in any token deck and I would add Darksteel Mutation to deal with pesky commanders

I also have an Emmara deck, but mine is a bit less focused and on a budget. Despite this I can recommend adding Conclave Tribunal this shuts down any permanent an opponent has even if only for a limited amount of time. I would also recommend Divine Visitation (if you add this you might want to cut Crackdown ), while having 1/1 lifelink is good, 4/4 vigilance ensures you can pressure and keep blockers. On the note of tokens I recommend Doubling Season , while I don't run it because of my budget, it helps to dissuade opponents attacking you. I also recommend Mirari's Wake to double mana for a huge March of the Multitudes you can also dump excess mana by adding a Staff of Domination , or for more budget friendly Sword of the Paruns , to create more Emmara tokens. For more defense i recommend Sandwurm Convergence this shutsdown fliers and gives you a big blocker on the ground every turn. Also to maximize Emmara's ability I run a Wirewood Lodge . For end game I suggest Wayfaring Temple it builds off of the tokens and creates more, also [Shanna, Sisay's Legacy]. to make your creatures bigger and to tap Emmara I run Dragon Throne of Tarkir . Twilight Drover doubles tokens. Hour of Reckoning kills everything but tokens. Darksteel Mutation to remove problematic creatures (works really well to shut down commanders). Beastmaster Ascension and Overrun ends games. Shalai, Voice of Plenty prevents targeting. Nature's Chosen to tap and untap Emmara. I hope this helps give you more ideas and I wish you the best of luck finishing your deck :D

I really like Autumn-Tail, Kitsune Sage in enchantress builds because Autumn-Tail doesn't target creatures. Lets you put a Darksteel Mutation on a Narset, Uril or some other pesky commander with hexproof.
