Inspiring Cleric Discussion

Good point. I think I have an Archangel of Thune in storage. Ill add it to the maybeboard. Would probably be good to substitute in Inspiring Cleric instead of Ritual of Rejuvenation if I go that route.

Braingamer I would like to draw attention to my first sentence I made. I did not see the point of this deck. I didn't know if you were trying to make a token deck or get as many 1/1 counters as you can (both of those things seem to be what stick out the most to me). That's why I gave you the recommendations I did. Some cards I mentioned I have found to be useful for my vampire deck. However, I have only built one vampire deck and what I built works for the people I play against. I would really reconsider Inspiring Cleric though. Its one of those cards that is underrated. The reason I mentioned cards like Squire's Devotion and Mark of the Vampire is I run Famished Paladin as my 2 drop so these enchantments serve a big purpose in my deck.

R3DSTON3R I'm going to have to say that I disagree with your suggestions. Mark of the Vampire is honestly really bad and Squire's Devotion is even worse. I get that lifelink is nice but I'm trying to be more aggressive so using 3 to 4 mana on things that minorly buff creatures isn't really worth it. Also, Adanto Vanguard is arguably the best Vampire in the format Inspiring Cleric is maybe sideboard against aggro but I doubt it would even get that treatment. Also Ravenous Chupacabra is removal that's why it's in the deck. Also Champion of Dusk has won me games. It refills my hand late game which allowed me to follow up with cards like Legion Lieutenant. Also, what's wrong with a lot of 2 drops??? I was thinking of adding 2 more gifted aetherborn that you for that suggestion. Thanks for the Feedback :)

I don't see the main focus of this deck. Are trying to get tokens out onto the field? or are you trying to get as many 1/1 counters out as you can? Also, there isn't enough land for this deck IMO. You shouldn't have any less than 22.
4x Legion Lieutenant Keep these. They are useful.
4x Gifted Aetherborn Will make people think twice.
Add Inspiring Cleric and remove Adanto Vanguard. Although, these cards could be used hand-in-hand. By that I mean attack with Adanto Vanguard and activate his ability for quick damage to player or creature and then play Inspiring cleric to get that health back. If you decide to go this route [keeping both cards] remove some 2 mana cost cards because you have a TON of 2 drop cards.
Remove Champion of Dusk. He seems like a good idea but trust me, he's not.
Remove Ravenous Chupacabra This card doesn't follow any theme you are going for here.
Try to get your creature count down to 22-25. Add in buff cards because you dont have a lot of powerful/ hard-hitters in this deck. My recommendations would be Cartouche of Ambition, Mark of the Vampire, and if you are going for a token deck then Squire's Devotion would really help out here.
Hope this is helpful!

I like what youre trying to do here bmagicguy. Lifelink is a pretty solid strategy right now because fast aggrieved decks are super popular. So if you want this build to work I would suggest having a lot of small, maybe high toughness creatures with lifelink to flood the board and block with. Drawing cards is also good so something like Shapers' Sanctuary will deter opponents removal and draw for you. Green and white allows you to be pretty tricksy with untapping and protection. So if you want to survive to the point with your herald you could maybe add things like Glory-Bound Initiate for lifegain, or Ranging Raptors and Ripjaw Raptor for card draw and ramp. Cards like Prepare give you a surprise big lifelink blocker after your opponents attack you then you can use the back half of it to fight a creature with something you want to take damage like your raptors! Aerial Responder is great, but Im not sold on Aetherstorm Roc, maybe its a place to put in raptors. Exemplar of Strength, Inspiring Cleric and Bishop's Soldier CAN be good but I dont think its the build youre going for so the glory bounds could go there. Majestic Myriarch is awesome with all your lifelinkers but Id suggest putting in some more creatures with valuable keywords. Adorned Pouncer will give it double strike and you can bring it back on turn 5 as a 4/4 double strike! As a finisher, in case you dont get Victory's Herald, theres Appeal which basically lets you swing in for a huge attack unblocked if you pair the cards together and you can still block any attacks on the next turn. But I love green white in standard and if you have any questions or ideas feel free to speak up! Hope Ive given you some ideas

Not sure if you want the bigger body, but Lone Missionary does the same thing as Inspiring Cleric but for one less mana. It might be nice to have a better curve as to Lone Missionary, Vampire Nighthawk then to Herald of War.
Also, lands like Orzhov Basilica and Azorius Chancery are terrible lands in modern (with the exception of one deck that utilizes their bounce effect). If you're looking for other budget options (because this deck looks budgeted) you could look into Forsaken Sanctuary, Isolated Chapel, Choked Estuary, Drowned Catacomb, and Sunken Hollow. With all of the angels you play, you could also look into Seraph Sanctuary.

Lost_0ne It is a possibility, but I usually prefer to use my taplands on turn 1- Having white mana untapped t1 is difficult, which is why I may even swap out the Authorities in the sideboard to Inspiring Cleric or the like.
