Inspiring Cleric Discussion

Instead of Mesa Unicorn or Bishop's Soldier, How about Paladin of Atonement, works well with drawing cards off of Arguel's Blood Fast.
Also I dont know if you need 4 copies of Dire Fleet Ravager, maybe try having Forerunner of the Coalition as a way to tutor him up (when you need him). Chances are with your lifegain in the deck he is going to hit you for more than he hits your opponent... Fraying Omnipotence could be just as good a finisher and you would rebound quicker with Isareth the Awakener. you can then add more ETB creatures like Dusk Legion Zealot, Inspiring Cleric, Bloodhunter Bat

First of all, thanks for commenting, ZolvaNation.
About Blood-Cursed Knight: although I only have 2 enchantments in the deck, I usually get to play them, so it could be a good addition! Probably I would take out Inspiring Cleric...I just play them because a friend has a white enchantment/heroic deck and always gets protection against B, so I use them to have a way of blocking his creatures.
Now about Harsh Sustenance: I need to try it, but I believe it would work better in a vampire token deck, which naturally will have more creatures in the field.

You could run a Luxa River Shrine for some extra lifegain.
Good luck with the deck, looks awesome!

Hi this is Derek.
Okay here's the obvious weak links:Deadeye Harpooner: Fine card, probably would be better as something like Fiend Hunter, though (there's a combo with Ayli).Disciple of the Vault: I think your artifact theme is a lil light.Encampment Keeper: If you want an anthem, you are probably better off with a legit lord or non-creature anthem effect. If you want to go the lord route, you'd probably need to go more tribal. Also there's definitely other 1 CMC monstros that would give you some boost.Master Trinketer: Probably a bit too slow. Fine card, though.Solemn Recruit: Little off the main goals of the deck. Good card, though - maybe also consider Mirran Crusader if you want this kind of lad?Battle at the Bridge: Definitely would need stronger artifact theme for this to be actively good. It's fine, it's just not actively good. One potential option is Profane Command?Chaplain's Blessing: This sort of lifegain tends to be bad. Maybe consider a triggered source? Depending on budget, Sword of War and Peace seems good. Sylvok Lifestaff too. Even Inspiring Cleric from Innistrad (which also gives you a body for Ayli).Shadows of the Past: Seems okay but maybe something a little cheaper for a powerful effect? Spirit Bonds might be sick here.Decomission: I think there's probably better alternatives for artifact/enchantment destruction.
Obvious omissions:Lingering Souls is INSANE.If you want to go the token route, you may want to consider anthems (Spear of Heliod, Glorious Anthem, Mirror Entity, Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit), as well as other powerful token makers (Secure the Wastes, Sword of Body and Mind, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Monastery Mentor).For removal, consider sweepers (Slaughter the Strong, Forced March, Black Sun's Zenith, Retribution of the Meek) as well as the really strong point removal (Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares) and the really cheap removal that's considerably worse (Vendetta, Smother, Ulcerate) and the more flexible removal that can hit everything (Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking).
Mother of Runes is sick.Sacrifice outlets have a few obvious combos in Fiend Hunter, Mesmeric Fiend and Tidehollow Sculler.Orzhov Signet is good.Card draw is good. There's not a lot of good card draw in BW. I would suggest Skeletal Scrying or maybe Damnable Pact.Finally, gots to have some way to interact with graveyards (people DEFINITELY use them in the format). Bojuka Bog is the standard. People often rock Tormod's Crypt and Relic of Progenitus too.For mana base, maybe Orzhov Guildgate, Scoured Barrens and Forsaken Sanctuary as well as Caves of Koilos and Orzhov Basilica (a sick combo with Bojuka Bog). More expensive options are Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel and Shambling Vent.

Dire Fleet Ravager is also really fun to use. If you're gaining a considerable amount of life (Moment of Craving, Inspiring Cleric, Squire's Devotion, Bishop's Soldier) than losing 1/3rd of your life isn't so bad.
Dropping from 26 down to 17 isn't so bad when your opponent drops from 18 down to 12. Just make sure you can stay far enough ahead.
The more life you have, the more you will lose. Play him cautiously. Mostly if you're in a tight spot and you think you can win but need them immediately weaker first.

mistarilledawn Thanks for the suggestions! I bought a few Sanctum Seekers the other day, just forgot to update this decklist. I'm not going to run Gifted Aetherborn or Fatal Push, as they are soon going out of Standard, and I'd play them for, at most, 3 weeklies. However, I have replaced my Bishop's Soldiers and Inspiring Clerics for other things, and added in cards such as Dusk Legion Zealot. I might add back in Duress and Vampire's Zeal (I ran them in the first build of this deck) if I can find something to replace. I also may run Concealed Courtyard in the future, but since I don't have a primary source of income, it's currently out of my budget. Thanks again, suggestions are always appreciated :)
