Kabira Crossroads Discussion

If you still need advice Spectral Procession, Legion's Landing Flip, Honor of the Pure, Leonin Warleader, Immortal Servitude, and Windbrisk Heights are all pretty cheap additions. Sundering Growth is really cheap and effective in the sideboard, especially if you throw in a spec proc or two. I personally would get rid of the Codex Shredder, Chalice of Life Flip, Sunbond, and Kabira Crossroads because the time and mana investment is a little too high for what you're getting. Those are just some suggestions, overall this is a solid budget sisters build.

I think you'll want to up your lands to 23-25. Blighted Steppe/Kabira Crossroads help you out. Aven Riftwatcher is also a very good creature, it only last a few turns but is great for them, and I like Nyx-Fleece Ram. Survival Cache is a way for you to draw cards.

My first thought is that you're not taking nearly as much advantage of Licia's cost-reduction ability as you could be. Lands such as Wind-Scarred Crag and Bloodfell Caves fix your colors, and their enter-the-battlefield-tapped drawback is mitigated by the fact that the lifegain makes Licia cheaper the turn they enter play. Radiant Fountain is basically a Dark Ritual in this deck!
On a similar note, look for cards that give you an effect on top of gaining you life. Pristine Talisman effectively taps for two in this deck. Zuran Orb can give you a turn-3 Licia all by itself. Renewed Faith can either power out an early Licia or cycle in the late game for (essentially) zero mana. Vraska's Contempt essentially exiles any creature or planeswalker for the bargain price of BB. And so on.

Apothecary Initiate, Serene Steward, Soulmender and Cradle of Vitality all have issues, mostly that the effect costs mana or requires you to tap a creature. The most common life gain deck in Modern is Soul Sisters, named so for Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. If your wanting to avoid that route then maybe a more aggro focused list with Lone Rider Flip and Ajani, Caller of the Pride.
You might also want to consider Awe Strike, Kabira Crossroads and Authority of the Consuls. Another option is you look at a mechanic like Extort, see Blind Obedience as an example. Or look at alternative (but based on life gain) win conditions like Chalice of Life Flip, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Sovereign or finally Divinity of Pride.
Whatever you decide, I hope this helps and have fun brewing your deck.

I like this deck! A mono-white Darien was actually the first good EDH deck I ever built, and on tapped out. Unfortunately i retired it due to my preference for a Mono-Red Goblin swarm as opposed to a Mono-White Soldier Swarm, though the latter definitely has goblins beat in the Lifegain department. So my deck on TappedOut is outdated but here
I would recommend Anointer Priest if you have interest in another ETB lifegainer, the more you have, the more threatening it is when your commander is out, and don't be afraid once your Commander is out to deal damage to yourself through certain affects such as Ankh of Mishra or, and I can't believe you didn't slide this in here but Blasting Station. With your commander and two 1-Life ETB cards, or your Healer of the Pride, you can give yourself Infinite Life.
With all your available tokens you should have Collective Effort might be a good sorcery to slide in there. Also a must-have in a Soldier deck is Conqueror's Pledge and Launch the Fleet if your focus is token production.
Finally, for lands, Kabira Crossroads is a rarity and will gain you 2 life instead of the usual 1 that those kind of lands offer. Mistveil Plains is also nice if your opponent is dishing out alot of removal.

These would be on my shortlist to replace: Crimson Honor Guard, Kheru Mind-Eater, Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Mathas, Fiend Seeker, Skeletal Vampire, Tithe Drinker, Vein Drinker, Skeletal Scrying, Kabira Crossroads, Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Vitality, Outpost Siege, Sanguine Bond, Consuming Vapors, Damnable Pact, Well of Lost Dreams
These are the first things I'd try to find a place for: Legion Lieutenant, Forerunner of the Legion, Champion of Dusk, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Rebirth, Mirror Entity,Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Vanquisher's Banner, Stensia Masquerade, Cathars' Crusade
If you're willing to spend the money these seem worth it to me: Shared Animosity, Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena, Twilight Prophet, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir
You can also go to edhrec.com and look up your commander to find a list of suggestions for the deck.
In general, it's a good idea to replace a card with one that does something similar. Like replace something that draws cards with something else that draws cards, or something that removes you opponents' stuff with something else that does that. The deck is already well balanced so you mostly just need to put in some upgrades and take out the cards that aren't focused. Also try to be careful not to replace too many cards with other cards that cost more mana.
You can spend almost as much money upgrading a mana base as you like. In particular, you want to replace lands that come into play tapped with ones that don't. These are some lands you could get that are relatively cheap: Unclaimed Territory, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Smoldering Marsh, Graven Cairns, and Foreboding Ruins
Vault of the Archangel doesn't get you colored mana but it offers some great utility.

Definitely exchange the Kabira Crossroads for Plains. Token decks are aggressive, and you can't afford so many enters-the-battlefield-tapped lands.
Personal preference, but in playtesting I find Marshaling Cry to be an extremely undervalued pump spell for Pauper. Vigilance is nice, but the strength is in cycling and flashback. Try it out; promise you'll love it.
