You don't really have a lot of Angels so I'm not sure you really want Seraph Sanctuary as it's a land that gives one life and doesn't produce white. You could replace it with Kabira Crossroads if you still want a land the gives you life when it enters. Radiant Fountain gains 2 life as well but doesn't come in tapped. Though it only produces colorless.

Kabira Crossroads and Shambling Vent offer additional lifegain triggers. +1, cool deck

Have you seen the vampires we've gotten so far in Ixalan? They're quite good, and I think they'll be super easy includes in the deck.

Only suggestion is the land base, I'd recommend at least the check/painlands since they're all relatively cheap and really help the deck. Kabira Crossroads is a land that really had me frowning upon when I was making changes haha.

I'll think of more suggestions, since I'm planning on motoring soon but I'll make sure to upvote your deck, being a fellow Edgar enthusiast as you know. ;)

Hope these suggestions helped!

@hoardofnotions thank you for the help ! I wouldn't cut Kabira Crossroads because it sometimes help with casting Licia, but Scoured Barrens can surely go away. Winding Canyons would have been good if I had kept cards that would give me life during my opponent's turn, but since I was prioritizing casting Licia on my turn, there's not a lot of way to gain life on other players turn... On the other hand Thawing Glaciers is exactly what I need when i don't have my Mardu colors!

Sun Titan is very good, didn't think about it. Even more than just giving me back my life enablers, I can take back cards like Bastion Protector, Favor of the Mighty or Mother of Runes. I will add it asap. And surely,I didn't realize how many Vampires I have cut since the precon deck. I don't really want to take New Blood away, but I may need to...

As for Phyrexian Reclamation, I'm not sure, since there are only 17 creatures in this deck. It surely can bring back sacrificed creatures like Icatian Moneychanger or Martyr of Sands, but other than that, I think I'd prefer a tutor. Demonic Tutor is too pricey for me, but Enlightened Tutor seems to be exactly what I need : Can go search for Sunbeam Spellbomb or Sunspring Expedition for enabling Licia, or for any protection. I'll add it to the deck instead of New Blood

Thanks for the insight!

Thanks for the suggestions! I had put in those creatures to merely have some decent early defenders, but in hindsight tokens should be able to help. I'll replace those three you mentioned with the three spells you brought up, as well as replace two of the lands.

I also will include a few of the cheap non-basic manamakers, such as Kabira Crossroads and Mistveil Plains (The latter is a bit pricey but I think I actually have that hanging around somewhere so I'll put it in if I do)

Looks like a fun deck! Do you mainly play casual with your friends? This deck I quite slow for modern, but if it's kitchen magic then it's probably no problem. Still I would replace most (or all) of your high mana spells, since there are many more efficient wincons and life gain options. I understand if you don't want to remove Felidar Sovereign, since it's the basis of the deck, but I have some suggestions for the others. But you should remember that it can be killed very easily by an opponent with some basic removal in the deck. Aside from the guardian, life gain in itself is not a wincon, therefore you should add creatures that pose a big threat on their own!

In general, if you have a card with CMC (converted mana cost) 5 or more it really need to be powerful to be worth it. Also, with this curve you REALLY need more lands, at the very least 26 or 27. If you cut some of the more costly spells you can reduce this to 24 lands. But I would strongly recommend you to cut most of the spells with CMC more than 4 and add a lot of CMC 1 and 2 spells. Also, Eternal Dragon and Karmic Guide are not modern legal, if you only play with your friends then it's not that important, but it's good to know.

Some card you might find useful:

----Lands----

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - Can really ramp this deck, making it easier to cast the high mana spells. No more than 2x.

Kabira Crossroads - Comes in tapped but gives you 2 life. 2-4x.

Seraph Sanctuary - Gain life when an angel enters the battlefield. 2-4x depending of how much colored mana you need and on how many angels you have.

Emeria, The Sky Ruin - If you're going to have a lot of plains in play this can be an interesting card, it's not too good though. Perhaps it's better to have 2x Windbrisk Heights.

More lands in general!

----Expensive ($) Creatures----

Gisela, the Broken Blade - Nice card, even without the meld mechanic. Only down side is that is dies to bolt. Have max 3x. It's a bit expensive.

Baneslayer Angel - One of the best angels, just as Gisela it's a bit expensive, but this one can really dominate the battlefield! 3-4x.

Archangel of Thune - The best one can have angel in a life gain deck. However, it's REALLY expensive.

Kitchen Finks - Again, expensive, but solid life gain and a wonderful creature at that!

Serra Ascendant - One more an expensive card, but this is really what you need in a deck like this.

Rhox Faithmender - Not sure it's interesting, but can boost you at the end. No more than 2x.

----Budget Creatures----

Martyr of Sands - Can give you a lot of life, only remember that lands are colorless cards (that includes Plains!).

Soldier of the Pantheon - A nice little critter, if you play against a multicolored deck this guy can give you a lot of life.

Knight of Meadowgrain - A nice 2 drop.

Knight of the White Orchid - No life gain here, but it can save you when you're mana screwed!

Ajani's Pridemate - Doesn't give you life, but it grows when you get life. It's good. 2-4x.

Ranger of Eos - Let's you find 2 Martyr of Sands, 2-4x.

Soul Warden - Good whn you have a lot of cheap creatures.

Soul's Attendant - Same as above.

Divinity of Pride - It's really big turn 5 if you've played your cards right, 2-3x.

----Non-creature spells----

Sunspring Expedition - Very nice life gain, a solid 1-drop that gives you 8 life at instant speed three turns later. 4x.

Rest for the Weary - Nice life gain spell, 4x.

Path to Exile - When it comes to removal this spell is one of the very best in magic. It's a bit expensive to buy, but really "Worth it". 3-4x, no more 4 CMC removal!. Budget alternatives are Condemn and Journey to Nowhere. Oblivion Ring is nice since it can target artifacts, enchantments and planeswalkers as well as creatures!

Congregate - Good if you add more low CMC creatures in the deck. Also good against decks with a lots of creatures.

Celestial Mantle - Boosts a creature (Makes a 1 drop a wincon) and doubles you life! 1-2x.

Elixir of Immortality- Can be something for the deck. 0-4x, depending on what you have to cut in it's stead. It's nice recurring life gain.

Chalice of Life - Interesting card, can really hit you opponent hard if you manage to flip it early.

Invincible Hymn - Use in combination with Elixir of Immortality, and gain 50+ life! Max 1x!

Ajani Goldmane - Planeswalker who's a cat as well as gives you life, can it get any better?

Day of Judgment - Replace all your sweepers with this, it's the best sweeper you can get without paying a lot of money. However, if you really manage to lower your mana curve Dusk / Dawn, which you already have might actually be better. No more than 2-4x in the deck of the one you choose, depending on how many creatures of what CMC you have.

Defy Death - If you want to return a creature from your graveyard you might want to use this spell.


Obviously it's impossible for you to include all the cards I've suggested, but I hope it gives you some alternatives you can think about. Look at the cards, think it over and make a budget, never spend more than necessary or more than you can afford (the last part I still need to learn!). I would really recommend you to lower the mana curve, aim for average CMC 3 for max 3.5, but the lower you manage to lower it the better! Modern is a fast format.

Yes, I am procrastinating. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Funkydiscogod on I'm going off the rails on a crazy gain

Does Kabira Crossroads sound like a good idea?

Also, Bloodbond Vampire can act like another Ajani's Pridemate, because I think the massive amounts of life you're trying to gain could make some big critters.

mullto3 on Kefnet the Modernful

dotytron I love your find of Paradox Haze - I never thought of trying to increase the number of upkeeps, it's genius! The problem with Thassa, God of the Sea is that she isn't a creature without the devotion cost being met, so while she synergises with Culling Scales she doesn't synergise with Porphyry Nodes. With the current build it'd almost be impossible to get her devotion up enough too - I had thought of her synergy with Culling Scales ages ago and was so shocked when they printed Kefnet the Mindful - the perfect upgrade!

Neckworn I think having a land bounce synergy is an awesome idea, and it had occurred to me, the deck just isn't polished enough for me to have worked it in yet. Don't forget though,Kefnet the Mindful isn't the only land bouncer, Deprive can do this too. Another cool card that could be included if you really wanted to go down that pathway would be Pearl Lake Ancient or the white/blue bounce lands. Other good lands to bounce and replay would be ones like Halimar Depths or Kabira Crossroads. This land bounce deck is almost a whole other deck idea!

Ragithor - best description of the deck so far haha.
