You are probably going to have trouble turning on Accord with any kind of consistency. I would recommend adding a couple of extra lands, and finding some way to gain life consistently.

Basilisk Collar seems like it would be fantastic in your deck if you don't mind the price. Equipped on a decent creature such as Ajani's Pridemate, you will be able to turn on Accord nearly every turn you attack, and it turns your soul sisters into very effective blockers. Open the Armory can act as copies 5-8 of Collar if you're interested in that plan.

Also, I found Lone Rider  Flip is a good budget card for Lifegain decks, and it would once again synergise very well with Collar and, importantly, Accord.

Hey Bulldawg1310 and Darth_Savage,

Both of you made some good suggestions and im really considering them. Thanks for your help in that regard^^

The first card Martyr of Sands is a card that I always hear about when it comes to lifegaindecks but im really sceptical with it. First of all im a really agressive player and get all my cheap creatures on the board in about 1 to 3 turns. That leaves me with 2 or 3 cards in my hand in the early game and mostly 1 to 2 cards in the later stages of the game. That means that I can only really capitalize on Martyr of Sands if I draw it in my first hand or in my second turn. The chances of this happening are to slim for my taste so Im sticking with cards like Wall of Reverence that is indeed slower but extremly strong with a buffed Ajani's Pridemate (wich is on my field in nearly every game). This can gain me 30 life in the turn that its played and combined with Sunbond buffs my creature to oblivion wich in return gives me nearly infinite lifepoints if nobody answeres it in time.

The cards Lone Rider  Flip and Rhox Faithmender really caught my Eye. I want at least 2 lone rides and 1 Rhox in my deck now but im not sure what to exchange for it. Probably 2 plains and Celestial Mantle cause this card is to gimmiky and can take of with Whispersilk Cloak but this is unlikely to happen.

Thanks for both of your Feedbacks. I really appreciated them :)

Hi AutKingfisher,

Along with the already suggested Martyr of Sands, you might want to consider Lone Rider  Flip and Rhox Faithmender. Generally you want to be running more creatures, to trigger the soul sisters life gain. I have a demo deck that might give you some additional ideas, have a look Mono-White Life gain copy, it was built to help another user on here out.

4x Lone Rider  Flip, -2 Rhox, -2 Guardian. More Field of Ruin. These are great in mono decks. Maybe some Disenchant and definitely some Stony Silence in sb.

kamarupa, I had been using Chalice of Life  Flip up until very recently actually. When it flipped it was pretty nice but I noticed I was only able to transform it about half of the games I cast it in.

Against heavy early game aggro it often becames difficult to transform it and in its base form the Chalice can’t really contribute much to the rest of the deck. In fact, even when successfully transformed it acted as a selfish standalone card that couldn’t help Angelic Accord, Lone Rider  Flip or Serra Ascendant.

So I recently took it out and replaced it with Ritual of Rejuvenation to add more synergy and consistency at the cost potential damage output.

I needs my angels, bruh!

Well, first I would consider not having one of a bunch of different cards unless you're making a commander deck, if you cut down on the number of cards but add more of the ones you need, you can get a more reliable game. Since this is supposed to be a token deck you should definitely remove Lone Rider  Flip it's doing nothing for you here.

As far as the cards go, if your looking for budget token duplication you cant go wrong with Growing Ranks. But if your willing to spend a little more a much better option would be Parallel Lives or Primal Vigor.

I would replace Verdant Sun's Avatar with Soul Warden or Trostani, Selesnya's Voice and get rid of Ulvenwald Observer you can get "some" big tokens but not enough to really make him useful.

you should also consider focusing you're token generating more. right now the deck is kind of all over the place creating small numbers of random tokens. it would be more effective if you added cards like Verdant Embrace, Darien, King of Kjeldor or Dreampod Druid. (I personally like pairing Alpha Authority + Dreampod Druid to give him some extra protection.

However, if you want to keep the big creatures and have a deck more focused on power and toughness instead of massing tokens, you should consider Giant Adephage, Mycoloth, Verdant Force and my personal favorite, Worldspine Wurm as some more budget options.

Some other cards you might want to consider are Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage so that you can populate on command, and Voice of Resurgence if your willing to spend the money. that card is very good at deterring your opponent's from messing with your side of the board on your turn.

Hope this helps a little :)

Hi creepergreen,

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.
