TheDuggernaught on White/blue life gain deck

1 week ago

Chalice of Life  Flip is a pretty meh card. If you want to gain 1 life per turn, there are far more efficient ways of doing so (Soul Warden and the like), and if you want to do damage by gaining life, there are more efficient ways of doing so (Ajani's Pridemate, Archangel of Thune and Serra Ascendant). I have used chalice once in a turbo fog deck... but that is a completely different deck.

But based on your description, some sort of control list might be what you are looking for. W/U Control is a pretty good deck. Most lists utilize a fair number of cards that gain life (Blessed Alliance, Sphinx's Revelation), although life gain is not a primary focus for the deck. Most W/U Control decks also use Celestial Colonnade as the primary win condition... and those are not cheap. Colonnades are good though as they are only creatures when you want them to be creatures -- which means you can play board wipes such as Day of Judgment and not lose your "creatures". I feel like this sort of style fits you needs best, so this leaves us with a few options.

  1. Planeswalkers. Some planeswalkers are kind of pricey... others are not so bad. But planeswalkers synergize very well with board wipes as they are not creatures and it gives them "free turns" to tick up to their big abilities which can often, more or less, win the game by themselves. Some examples of good planeswalkers for this sort of deck are Gideon, Champion of Justice, Dovin Baan, Gideon Jura, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, and maybe Nissa Revane.Other ones are that are more expensive might be Ajani Vengeant, Koth of the Hammer, Mike expressed that he has had no urge to self-harm as of late. and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

  2. Myth Realized. Is similar to a manland in that it is only a creature when you want it to be a creature, and can get scary big.

Alternately, if you are still keen on the idea of winning with Felidar Sovereign, there are a couple ways to help make sure you win. You could splash black and use Doomed Necromancer's ability to return your Felidar Sovereign back to play at the end of your opponent's turn once you are at 30+ life. This gives your opponent less time to be able to do something about the Felidar Sovereign as they have to be able to kill it with an instant -- or else you just win. Another option is to take a page out of the Emeria decks and run Emeria, The Sky Ruin. Play all the boardwipes, and do not care because once you hit 7 plains, all your creatures will start to come back.

Let me know what you think and I can start helping you carve out a deck list. Ultimately, you cant go terribly wrong with either of the establish archetypes, but brewing is not a bad thing either! As far as dealing with aggro decks, how fast are these decks winning? A normal aggro deck in modern will normally win turn 3 or 4. Although if you are playing against other budget decks, you likely have more time.

How to fix up this deck to be Modern competitive on a budget:

--

Mainboard:

Remove an Anointer of Champions, and drop two of the Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip' then take out the Expedition Envoys, Declaration in Stones, Consul's Lieutenant, and finally the Gryff's Boons. (15 total cards)

Add 4 Soldier of the Pantheons (better than Expedition Envoy), 4 Champion of the Parishs (like Thalia's Lieutenant but is a one drop, and half the abilities), 4 Gather the Townsfolks ((For Champion of the Parish, and Thalia's Lieutenant)), and finally a Plains and 2 Windbrisk Heights (Card advantage).

--

Sideboard:

Remove all Silkwraps, Plains, Pacifism, Lantern Scout, and Eerie Interlude (11 total)

Add 4 Fragmentizes, 4 Path to Exile, 3 Rest in Peace, 2 Stony Silence

--

If you want:

Switch Always Watching (doesn't affect the Gather the Townsfolk humans, more expensive, but has vigilance) for Honor of the Pure (Cheaper, works on tokens, but doesn't have vigilance, and won't buff flipped Town Gossipmonger  Flip)

Switch Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon of the Trials, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Goldmane, Ajani Steadfast, or Gideon, Champion of Justice although I like Elspeth, all of them are great in their own right.

Love your deck Hippbro!
My own Phelddagrif-deck aims at killing the opponent through giving them tokens too! (Without the mana-dork combo)
I think you should consider cards like Forbidden Orchard and pain-lands to upgrade your mana-base. Defense of the Heart tutors up Suture Priest and a mana dork for you. Also, Prophet of Kruphix is banned. :/

This is my Phelddagrif list if you are looking for cards that synergize or if you just wanna give some feedback :) My list focuses on gaining/draining life through token-generation. Some of the core cards I use are Suture Priest, Gideon, Champion of Justice, Hundred-Handed One, Custodi Soulbinders, Martial Coup, Sylvan Offering and Felidar Sovereign

Let me know how your list preforms! I am considering stealing your mana-dork combo for my deck! :)

Hippo on fellow Hippo-brother!

landofMordor on Planswalker protection combo?

2 months ago

Fog effects protect you from combat damage, and there are cards that grant you (the player) hexproof like Orbs of Warding so that no direct damage can be dealt.

Alternately, just play Gideon, Champion of Justice and give him tons of counters.
