Lone Rider Discussion

Your deck can't really be that consistent, since you run so few 4x, I suspect that's what you are perceiving as it being slow. That being said Pillory of the Sleepless over One Thousand Lashes and Grasp of Darkness over Executioner's Swing would be a start. Lands might be boring, but they are some of the most important cards in your deck, in order: Isolated Chapel == Concealed Courtyard -> Temple of Silence -> Orzhov Guildgate -> Evolving Wilds and that is just the budget options. Short version change Evolving Wilds to Orzhov Guildgate. You should probably consider adding Chalice of Life Flip, but the space for that is dependent on what you do with your creatures, basically though that covers non-creatures...
Creature wise I have two not in your deck to recommend Lone Rider Flip and Divinity of Pride, the Rider is brutal in a life-gain deck and Divinity ends games if not answered. You need to do something to make the creatures more consistent, try to pick five of them and run 4x of each, preferably scaled in mana cost, for example: 4x Soul Warden, 4x Lone Rider Flip, 4x Vampire Nighthawk, 4x Rhox Faithmender, 4x Divinity of Pride. I'd probably have a setup something like that, but feel free to choose your own bodies... The point is choose the best bodies you can and run them in such a way that they are more likely to be in your hand. I hope this is of help, good luck and have fun brewing your deck.

Not sure if Cliffhaven Vampire offers as much as you might hope, since the rules state: "The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, no matter how much life is gained." While you do need card draw, I'm fairly sure Night's Whisper or Phyrexian Arena are a better fit than Dawn of Hope, if you really want additional enchantments to help Blood-Cursed Knight I'd suggest Pillory of the Sleepless.
If the object is to stay alive while you build the combo then Souls of the Faultless might be of help, certainly it's on them. You also might be able to use Soul Spike (don't cast it use the exile clause) and Athreos, God of Passage. On the flip side if you wanted an alternative win condition then Divinity of Pride, Chalice of Life Flip or even Lone Rider Flip might have a place.
Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

Id probably completely remove Alhammarrets Archive and replace 2-3 of those with Boon reflection or at least add the boons because of the legendary status Archive has, and then add Dawn of Hope or Well of Lost Dreams to actually use Archive fully. I feel that you should add Ajani's Pridemate to fully use the lifegain and the counter premise. Panharmonicon would be huge in this sort of deck. This is okay but is kinda super super slow because you dont get damage until you have 4+ land. id take out enough to add in Serra Ascendants. Timely Reinforcement is okay but Spectral Procession would be a lot better because you get tokens regardless of having less life than someone else, since you have a lifegain deck its more than likely youre going to have more life than others 90 percent of the time.Angelic accord is great, but id check out Crested Sunmare. 5/5 indestructible horses > 4/4 angels. Lone Rider Flip is a pretty solid 2 mana creature that can turn into a 4/4. Life gain is great....if you do something with all that life. In this deck youre not doing anything with all that life gain. I meant with stuff like Felidar Sovereign or Aetherflux Reservoir would actually weaponize your health which is what you want.

Easily flip Lone Rider Flip in 1 turn with a single Soul's Attendant and Norin. Sometimes on the opponent's turn. Purphoros, God of the Forge is going in as soon as I have the $$. Impact Tremors already in maybeboard

TheVectornaut Have actually had this at tournament a couple times. People generally ignore Glitterfang. There's bigger threats on the board, folks usually go after the Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Lone Rider Flip, or Aerial Responder

The slate is almost ready... I just want to know which is good out of the following, & which is bad, as well as whether or not Pristine Angel + Concerted Effort + Empty-Shrine Kannushi/Pledge of Loyalty is a legitamite combo that works, & can even deal with Multicolor, & Creature Types regardless of Color.
Which of these do you recommend? I'm adding my last adds before shaving off whole KGs off this deck...
