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

Hey Bishop6644,

Indeed having non creature life gain is very important. I run Ivory Tower , Blind Obedience and Tainted Sigil on that front. I could stand to maybe add in a couple of more non creature cards that gain life but my experience has been quite positive with this deck in my playgroup.

This deck normally wins by playing a huge red X-spell like Molten Disaster or by draining the table with Exquisite Blood and Vizkopa Guildmage (they go infinite together killing the table but are also legit win cons in a multitude of other scenarios). Chandra's Ignition can also easily win the game with our commander or Evra, Halcyon Witness .

Philoctetes I added the following cards because I already have them or they are cheap: Caged Sun , Ivory Tower , Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Basalt Monolith , Clever Impersonator , Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur , Viseling , As Foretold , Mystical Tutor , Swan Song , Terrain Generator .

Ahh and I took this card Sunstone , because I do not have snows lands and ~27 are a little pricey for me.

Thanks again!

This is a cool deck.
Ivory Tower- I loved this card back in my kitchen table days.
Mystic Remora might also fit here.

Hey, so if you're wanting to paruse cards chosen for a deck where you draw a lot, peep my Kami of the Rising Tides. It's built around that, although remember I play casually so not hyper-competitive. It's also got some return type stuff and interesting counterspells and combat tricks.

Another deck I would suggest you look at just for ideas is Deathstroke2791's deck: Anticipate Stick [[Tomorrow Primer]]. Lot's of controlly trickery there.

And as far as life gain, I will reiterate my previous suggestion of Ivory Tower. If you usually have a full (over 7+) hand you will gain plenty.

Not knowing what you're looking to replace it with, I'll just chuck two cards at you that might be good in your brew: Ivory Tower and Long-Term Plans. Maybe Time Stop?
