First you don’t need more than 37 lands.

You are missing the best 4 free sacrifice outlets Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia and Spawning Pit.

Creature sacrifice outlets to add Viscera Seer, Woe Strider, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician.

Additional life drain cards Cruel Celebrant, Bastion of Remembrance and Vindictive Vampire.

You are lacking card draw look to add Skullclamp, Greed, Erebos, God of the Dead, Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy.

I’ll suggest more when I’m not at work.

Hey man, your Friendly Neighbourhood Deckbuilder here. as you requested ill be helping you with your lifegain deck today. some cards i would remove and reasons as to why.

Accursed Witch  Flip -for what she does (which is meh at best) she costs too much mana. too slow. Night Market Lookout bad card Opaline Unicorn way better mana rocks out there Xathrid Gorgon slow for what it wants to do. much better cards in these colours with the same cmc. Paradise Mantle dont really need it Final Reward way too expensive for what it does Pharika's Cure really weak for a hard 2B Tribute to Hunger giving your opponent a choice is most times bad. token decks exist. Unholy Hunger 5 cmc to kill one creature and a requirement to hit the incidental life gain? oof. Fate Forgotten my recommendations will render obsolete Fated Retribution better replacement recommended Visara the Dreadful Seer's Lantern meh Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip Shimmering Grotto you can stand to cut a land of two Swamp see above Vampire Envoy can do better Desecration Demon its fine but not necessary Reya Dawnbringer lets face it, great ability, but with 9 mana i hope youre doing more than waiting until your next turn for a big play... with 9 mana you wanna try to win games.

here is what i have for you my friend

Heliod's Intervention one of the better cards in white recently, this deck loves the options here. Felidar Sovereign win con Merciless Eviction probably the best boardwipe these colours can ask for Fumigate amazing wrath Suture Priest great at any point in the game Utter End fantastic removal at a fair cost Talisman of Hierarchy decent rock Gray Merchant of Asphodel life gain synonymous Erebos, God of the Dead too good not to run Vona, Butcher of Magan so much better than visara K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth best black card next to his dad Athreos, God of Passage incredibly good to keep wearing out your opponents. much better costed than reya Torment of Hailfire good game. Bolas's Citadel so beyond powerful when your life could be 300... Tainted Sigil very impressive when partnered with a big life drain spell (...if you havent already won) Bloodchief Ascension a game winner if not dealt with Test of Endurance win con Black Market gotta pump those x spells up!! Beacon of Immortality very cheeky with tainted remedy. dont use against me dawg.

Very cool. Maybe a Hellrider?? Other than that I'm pretty much with Epicuris. Oh and maybe any of the cards in black and or red that keep your opponent's from gaining life. Tainted Remedy Forsaken Wastes Erebos, God of the Dead and the new tibalt. Life gainers suck.

Hey COOZCOOZCOOZ, saw the new updates and it's looking good. I'm definetly gonna have to pick up a Shadowspear for my list. And was wondering if you've tried Daxos, Blessed by the Sun yet? I just added him to my list but haven't seen him in action yet.

I would strongly recommend cutting Erebos, God of the Dead, he was an early cut for me. All of the playgroups I've been in have always been able to steal or clone efficiently and it's rough to get shutdown by your own card. Also, Divinity of Pride would always seem to force a board wipe when I ran it and I couldn't gain anything from running it. And Obzedat's Aid and/or Unburial Rites could easily be switched out for things like Whip of Erebos or Mimic Vat if your looking to repeatedly reanimate.

Some cards I have found to really work with any playgroup are Leonin Elder, Golem's Heart and Paradise Plume. And it took me awhile, but I finally got my hands on an O-Naginata, as I've tried to focus my equipment package towards trample and low equip costs. Also, where's Panharmonicon???? Card was made for things like soul sister's package.

Anyways, my recommendations are based on my games and playgroups. Hope this helps.
