You could switch Divinity of Pride for Serra Ascendant for that turn 1 drop. Might not happen often but when it does.. Oof.

Asder Do you think this deck is slow? It has only 4 spells that cost 5. I might switch up the Divinity of Pride for some Seraph of the Scaless. I think that the borderposts would slow it down more than speed it up.

Darkshadow327,

This might be addressed before, but the curve is quite high. I tend to find myself not doing much until at least T4 in the 5 games I gold fished the deck, keeping playable hands. Here might be some cards that can be considered in your lifegain/control theme.

Hope that helps!

Your deck can't really be that consistent, since you run so few 4x, I suspect that's what you are perceiving as it being slow. That being said Pillory of the Sleepless over One Thousand Lashes and Grasp of Darkness over Executioner's Swing would be a start. Lands might be boring, but they are some of the most important cards in your deck, in order: Isolated Chapel == Concealed Courtyard -> Temple of Silence -> Orzhov Guildgate -> Evolving Wilds and that is just the budget options. Short version change Evolving Wilds to Orzhov Guildgate. You should probably consider adding Chalice of Life  Flip, but the space for that is dependent on what you do with your creatures, basically though that covers non-creatures...

Creature wise I have two not in your deck to recommend Lone Rider  Flip and Divinity of Pride, the Rider is brutal in a life-gain deck and Divinity ends games if not answered. You need to do something to make the creatures more consistent, try to pick five of them and run 4x of each, preferably scaled in mana cost, for example: 4x Soul Warden, 4x Lone Rider  Flip, 4x Vampire Nighthawk, 4x Rhox Faithmender, 4x Divinity of Pride. I'd probably have a setup something like that, but feel free to choose your own bodies... The point is choose the best bodies you can and run them in such a way that they are more likely to be in your hand. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage on A Blood Bond- (B/W life combo deck)

Not sure if Cliffhaven Vampire offers as much as you might hope, since the rules state: "The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, no matter how much life is gained." While you do need card draw, I'm fairly sure Night's Whisper or Phyrexian Arena are a better fit than Dawn of Hope, if you really want additional enchantments to help Blood-Cursed Knight I'd suggest Pillory of the Sleepless.

If the object is to stay alive while you build the combo then Souls of the Faultless might be of help, certainly it's on them. You also might be able to use Soul Spike (don't cast it use the exile clause) and Athreos, God of Passage. On the flip side if you wanted an alternative win condition then Divinity of Pride, Chalice of Life  Flip or even Lone Rider  Flip might have a place.

Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Athreos is not usually a life gain sort of commander, but its your deck. Here are some cheap suggestions for life gain sort of things:

Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo (exquisite is expensive)

Killing Wave this is a very interesting card. only really good in Athreos, as they have to lose life to keep what they want then potentially lose more to keep your creatures in the grave.

Vizkopa Guildmage

Felidar Sovereign good meme

Divinity of Pride

Debt to the Deathless

Authority of the Consuls

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant or Suture Priest

Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

all of these are solid options

as for expensive cards ill only say 2:

Archangel of Thune

Serra Ascendant

woooo

First of all, I like your idea of gaining life in tandem with card draw. Life for the sake of life buys time, but that is about it.

Second, your mana curve is not bad either (and congrats on keeping it 60 cards!). You have a rough equivalency of white and blue cards paired with a rough equivalency of land.

That being said, I see a lot of cards of which you only have one copy. There is a value in being flexible, but you also must have a pretty solid strategy. Gaining life and drawing cards is great, but you have to have something to do with it. So, I would cut some of the cards with one copy (consider how often they actually come up in your games). Put 4 copies of a card (1 drawn about every 15 cards) that you want to see each and every game, 2 copies of cards you want most games, and 1 copy of cards that give you a good benefit even if the opponent destroys it the next turn (although counterspells help that a little). If there is a one-copy card you just cant convince yourself to get rid of, put it in your sideboard and try it out for a few games.

I would cut (blank) for the following reasons:

Evolving wilds: You generally don't need that in a 2 color deck, you'd rather have an untapped land. Pristine Talisman: Unless you can get 2 or 4 copies in your deck, if not, sideboard it. Felidar Cub: sideboard it and replace it with another Erase. Djeru's Renunciation: Replace with a "Bounce" Spell like Boomerang. Works offensively and defensively

As far as card suggestions go, pick your poison.... More: Mana Leak, Rune Snag, Reliquary Tower Some: Divinity of Pride, Soul Warden, Suture Priest, Angelic Accord, Tranquil Cove, Dictate of Kruphix, Blue Sun's Zenith, Rapid Hybridization, Spellbook, Whispersilk Cloak, Aqueous Form

TL;DR Don't build the deck too "flat" by having only one copy of essential cards, sideboard what you cant cut, and add some of these low-cost options to the deck. Remember: a lean deck is a successful deck. You can also get some good benefits from Scroll Thief if you can give it lifelink. Paired with Aqueous Form, you get a good glimpse of your top card before you draw it. Mana flooded? Scry it away! Mana thirsty? Scry away the high cost spell you would draw!
