-4 Lifelink, +4 Angelic Gift. You have plenty of lifegain. The gift gives you card+evasion=the gift that keeps giving.

Kogarashi on 2 questions: When can I ...

Argy is correct. Example to clarify:

If you have a Knight token enchanted with both Eidolon of Countless Battles (via bestow) and Lifelink, and someone casts Murder on the token, both Auras "fall off." Lifelink, being a normal Aura, goes to the graveyard (and Tiana would return it to hand at the end step). The Eidolon, on the other hand, becomes a creature and stays on the battlefield due to the rules specific to bestow.

Similarly, a creature-only sweep like Wrath of God will kill the Knight token, causing both Auras to fall off. Again, Lifelink would go to the graveyard, while Eidolon of Countless Battles would become a creature.

Planar Cleansing, however, isn't creature-only. Since it destroys all nonland permanents, it will destroy both Auras at the same time that it destroys the Knight token (and Tiana). Because the Eidolon is destroyed at the same time as the Knight token, it doesn't have time to fall off and become a creature, so it's destroyed as an Aura. In our example, Tiana sees two Auras (Eidolon and Lifelink) destroyed and the delayed triggered ability is set up to return them both to hand at the beginning of the end step.

It would happen the same way if someone just uses Naturalize on Eidolon of Countless Battles while it's bestowed. It's destroyed as an Aura, not detached and turned into a creature.

So this is why I mentioned that it's situational. If an opponent casts Planar Cleansing, but then Murders the Knight token first, then the Eidolon falls off and becomes a creature before the Planar Cleansing resolves, and thus Tiana, Ship's Caretaker doesn't see it as an Aura.

Lifelink seems like a weak option here; you're aggressive enough to where you don't really need the buffer, and Seeker of the Way already has it if you're desperate enough.

I STRONGLY recommend a couple Standard Bearers in the side or even the main. Enchantment stacking is just asking to get you crushed by spot removal, and while stacking protection is nice, it's not a long-term solution, especially if your opponent is heavily control.

Speaking of protection, a couple Sejiri Steppe instead of Plains would be great for utility.

Wingsteed Rider is probably worth consideration. Maybe in place of a Benevolent Bodyguard and a Mutagenic Growth.

In a deck like this, I'd worry about running out of gas, so I think you could stand to add a couple Pentarch Wards to cantrip/replace.

Cool list! :D

Hey man, Spirit Link is a strictly better Lifelink because it stacks with other life link abilities

lagotripha thanks but those cards would cause me to gain life, whereas the point of Lifelink is to cast on opponents creatures causing my opponent to gain life (thereby losing it through Tainted Remedy)

I agree that the list looks tighter and that the next place to trim is in the artifact list. Playing more enchantments, like Spirit Mantle or Lifelink or Hyena Umbra, into an Ethereal Armor into a Sphere of Safety can do a lot for you.

I might also keep Grafted Exoskeleton in the main since infect can be an alt win con for you.

Here's a list of W and colorless auras for < $10. This deck has lots of ideas, too. Mix and match your favorite equipments and enchantments?
