Creature — Cleric Avatar
Doubtless One's power and toughness are each equal to the number of Clerics on the battlefield.
Whenever Doubtless One deals damage, you gain that much life.

Doubtless One Discussion

I think you have your combo mostly set up with Altar of Dementia and reanimation life drain effects and all that remains is tweaking and deciding on other possible support themes Depending on how fast you want to make this (how much money you want to throw at this). If you are looking for another reanimation loop to abuse Altar with then consider Sun Titan and Gift of Immortality with Fiend Hunter as a backup to create milling nightmares for opponents or fuel to power Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim .
If you are aiming for a more causal deck and are not looking to keep things around two mana then you might have some fun with Thousand-Year Elixir , Akroma's Memorial and Lightning Greaves to enable some haste shenanigans with Whisper, Blood Liturgist or other similar tap clerics of which there are far to many fun and great ones to list. Some "bruiser" clerics that might be fun are Mikaeus, the Lunarch , Custodi Soulbinders , Doubtless One and Vile Deacon and of course Door of Destinies .
If you could give some feedback about the style, power level or your general meta I could make better tailored suggestions.

I always enjoy seeing more people make cleric decks, as I have made my own I defiantly have some opinions and ideas on clerics. Mother of Runes , Devoted Caretaker , Benevolent Bodyguard and Battletide Alchemist are excellent defensive options. For cleric beaters I would look at Custodi Soulbinders and Doubtless One . For card draw look at Tymna the Weaver , Twilight Prophet , Custodi Lich and Bygone Bishop . Given your commanders life drain nature I would also look at adding Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless as blowouts and enablers for your commander.

Doubtless One Might be too terrible.
It's often a 1/1 Lifelinker for 4. At best in the deck it's an 11/11 lifelink for 4, with every cleric in the deck on board

It's different, i like it. Have to ask tho, why no Doubtless One ?

akuma104 Thanks for stopping by my deckand leaving some suggestions! Yeah it's a little hard to go 100% Tribal so I usually abide by a 75% rule of trying to make 3/4 of the cards interact or actually be the given tribe, leaving the rest of the room for Goodstuff.
Responding to your suggestions I think Doubtless One and Vile Deacon both look good on paper but in practice will under perform as their usefulness is directly tied to my board state which is something I'm not a fan of. That being said Order of Whiteclay was in the initial iteration of the deck, long before I put it into paper, and somewhere along the way he came out. I'll look into perhaps re-including him. All of the tutors and Top or out at the moment simply due to budget, but I'll look in time to be getting either Vampiric Tutor or Demonic Tutor for practically every deck I run, so in due time they'll be included.

Hey there! First off, props on making a somewhat tribal cleric deck. I love this creature type for some reason, and one of my first good decks was a b/w cleric deck (legacy purely for the cardpool, not for competitiveness) so I can definitely give some guidance. You already have Battletide Alchemist, so you need more clerics to pump up her ability to prevent all damage! Doubtless One gets bigger as you cast more clerics and has life link. Vile Deacon gets pumped up when you attack. I like to attack with him, and then sac him to starlit sanctum for double damage. Also Order of Whiteclay and Oversold Cemetery for more recursion. Also, Rotlung Reanimator could be a beast in this deck and pump out a ton of tokens.
Also, I know somebody mentioned Sanguine Bond already, and that paired with Exquisite Blood will trigger an instant win if they are both on the board and you manage to gain 1 life or ping an opponent for 1. I run those in an Oloro deck and it is great. You may also want to consider Sensei's Divining Top, Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Plea for Guidance, Demonic Tutor, to get some of your engines online since you don't have much card draw. That is all I can think up right now. Cool deck!

Zombies, elves, and goblins are almost definitely going to be made into decks and wizards is a fairly popular tribe so it's definitely possible. If they were following this theme then it's very likely they dropped it to 4 decks just because cleric tribal isn't incredibly popular. To be honest, I don't really want to see any of these tribes being represented in Commander 2017 seeing as there's already so much available for building around these tribes, although that's just more of a reason for Wizards to use them.

Thank you sir! in fact,i created this deck thinking to my old cleric deck,the only disappointment is that Doubtless One is uncommon :(Anyway,i thinking about Scholar of Athreos but 3 mana for 1 damage it's too much,my idea it's to use 3 mana at the end of enemy turn for cast Harsh Sustenance and try to win, or have enough mana for some instant or some use of pestilence.Maybe i can do some game to try it,then I'll let you know how i fell!
