Divinity of Pride Discussion

Apothecary Initiate, Serene Steward, Soulmender and Cradle of Vitality all have issues, mostly that the effect costs mana or requires you to tap a creature. The most common life gain deck in Modern is Soul Sisters, named so for Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. If your wanting to avoid that route then maybe a more aggro focused list with Lone Rider Flip and Ajani, Caller of the Pride.
You might also want to consider Awe Strike, Kabira Crossroads and Authority of the Consuls. Another option is you look at a mechanic like Extort, see Blind Obedience as an example. Or look at alternative (but based on life gain) win conditions like Chalice of Life Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Sovereign or finally Divinity of Pride.
Whatever you decide, I hope this helps and have fun brewing your deck.

Entiendo que ests tratando de traer grandes criaturas al campo, pero Divinity of Pride es demasiado lenta. parece que tienes muchas criaturas que funcionarn mejor. Cambiara Divinity of Pride por Path to Exile o Dismember si pasar 4 vidas no te preocupa. No he tomado una clase de espaol en 4 aos por favor perdname si esto sali terriblemente.

lets start off with just plain out good cards:
-Karlov of the Ghost Council this guy offers some massive creature control and gets real big real fast.
-Divinity of Pride he is just so good with the life gain you have, a 5 mana 8/8 flyer lifelink is pretty good.
Cliffhaven Vampire now if anyone casts a spell everyone loses life, except you of course.
Aetherflux Reservoir... yeah.... yep, they are dead... nice.
Blood Baron of Vizkopajust another divinity of pride
Exquisite Blood double the dmg.
Erebos, God of the Dead stop all enemy's from gaining life and a drawing outlet.
Painful Quandary make them think twice before they cast spell.
Sanguine Bond goes infinite with exquisite blood and double the life.
okay, I'm out of cards.now, It seems to me that you also have this aristocrats tokens thing going on and I don't know which one you want to go into more. though, this deck, or should I say commander, is more for a control deck, not aristocrats, or tokens. If you want to go more aristocrats, than Athreos, God of Passage and the guys commander mentioned before me are both good options. if you want more tokens, aristocrats and life gain, then Elenda, the Dusk Rose has all three in some way or another. Those are all just suggestions for you to think about, good luck!

Nice deck! I've been thinking about building Karlov and I had a couple questions about your top end choices. Personally I'm not big on cards like Baneslayer Angel and Divinity of Pride that are just big blocks of stats; how have they worked out for you? I'm also concerned Pontiff of Blight, Righteous Confluence, and Sorin Markov wouldn't give you your mana's worth. Have they performed well for you?
I have a couple cards not in your list I'm thinking about and I'd be curious to hear your opinion of them. I'm a big fan of Weathered Wayfarer in any white deck without green. Defiant Bloodlord, Rhox Faithmender and Wall of Reverence all seem like natural fits in Orzhov lifegain strategies. I recommend Ashes of the Abhorrent as dual purpose graveyard hate and extra lifegain triggers, and speaking of lifegain triggers this may be a good home for Curse of Vitality. Finally as a different top end threat I think True Conviction is really powerful here.
I saw you are trying to avoid infinite combos and chose only the Sanguine Bond half of the lifedrain combo. Has that worked out for you or have you considered swapping for the Exquisite Blood half instead? Also, if you're already playing Sanguine Bond I don't think Vizkopa Guildmage would create any infinite combos it wouldn't as well.

WuzzyAF First, thanks for help!
I have played against T2 decks, some modern decks (not so competitive decks) and FF Decks, and works well, but have some problems.
Sorry for my english "/

You said the deck works well so I am assuming you have playtested some, what were you playing against?
The Angel of Condemnation seems a little out of place with your decks goals, and it's unlikely Ajani Goldmane would be alive long enough to warrant the 4 mana spent to cast him. Think about swapping some of your removal over to Path to Exile, its 1 cmc and a modern staple. Your list is almost a "Soul Sister's" variant, minus the Soul's Attendant, so if you are unfamiliar with that deck archtype, give one of the several primers a read because there is a lot of amazing information in them. Keep us updated on any changes you make, and good luck!

Grubbernaut I'm glad you like it! I thought the big butt would make the faithmender a great blocker but it's been 50/50 in testing. Might replace him with Gisela or Kalitas in the 4 drop slot. Thragtusk has been in and out he's really sweet but I've been bouncing around between different 5 drops like Divinity of Pride, Crested Sunmare, and Archangel of Thune.

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)
I really like the Extort theme here, but since most extort creatures won't protect you from big scary opponents, I'd recommend playing Crawlspace over Marchesa's Decree since it really stops opponents from getting in hits on you.
While I get that with all the tokens, Altar's Reap is like a Divination, I'd really want to see Well of Lost Dreams in here with all this lifegain you have, as it could make this deck seriously powerful. (If you do play the Well of lost dreams, I sense a Reliquary Tower in your future.
While yes, you can pitch your lands to make a 1/1 every turn, you could just play, I'd say this card should be swapped out for something like Aetherflux Reservoir, which can win you games. (While you are token heavy, Whip of Erebos could also be strong.
I suppose that with enough tokens, Zealous Persecution would be decent, but if you were to play Authority of the Consuls or Blood Artist I think you'd have more success in the life you need to trigger other cards (I could also see Whitesun's Passage getting swapped for another card, but direct lifegain might be goof enough that it works.
Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.
If you'd like more suggestions, just let me know buddy ;)
