OLucas on another life gain deck

The only modern competitive lifegain deck I know is soul sisters.

Soul Sisters - MTGgoldfish

I've also seen versions splashing green for Soul Warden and other versions splashing black for Blood Artist in conjuction with Forbidden Orchard .

A more janky idea that i thought of but didn't persue much is Ghirapur Orrery + Bottled Cloister + Venser's Journal and/or Ivory Crane Netsuke .

For the deck as is i would up the Resplendent Angel count since one of your best curves is Bishop of Wings into Resplendent Angel .

My favorites are Lifegift and Druidic Satchel . Looking at your deck I'm unsure what would be the best option but the odds are in your favor to ramp or gain life with Druidic Satchel

@Stephenburgin106 There actually is a very nice card that combos well with this deck, it is called Ivory Crane Netsuke I may add it to the sideboard but to be honest I don't intend to win a 1v1 match up vs burn in the first game. This deck just doesn't do that... That's why we have a sideboard :/ besides this is more of a fringe deck that does not do very well in a hyper competitive enviornment so you should not expect this to be on par with the top 5 decks. As for additional lands I can't see why I should run more in that I often draw so many cards that I never run into land troubles outside of just a bad starting hand. For counters I run 4 Remand and 4 Silence which usually allows me to lock them down for a few turns untill as I build up ramp and draw into more prevention nonsense. Finally it is important to note that this is a control deck just not that kind of control deck (due to my choice of win condition I end up devoting a lot of card space to the engine resulting in a smaller Thant usual support package for the deck. To any extent I that you for the comments and I'll see about finding a home for the bird.
