Hey, there's a mono white archetype in Modern called Soul Sisters. What you have here is a twist on that strategy.

The Sisters are Martyr of Sands , Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden . These are the repeatable life gaining sources to give you a consistent source of life gain and a consistent play turn one. Martyr is a fast way to gain life to activate Serra Ascendant or pump Ajani's Pridemate . Ascendant is by far your best threat to win a game and reason to want to gain life; Martyr can get you to 30+ life fast.

Squadron Hawk is a good two drop with this strategy giving you four potential creatures to gain life with and it has flying. Hawk is like draw putting up to three cards into your hand which is good with Martyr to have a better opportunity to gain life with her since you will have more white cards in your hand. I also like the interaction of Martyr and Lone Rider  Flip as a way to gain three or more life for one mana.

Flying is the best evasion you can give the rest of your attacking creatures with Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he does seem good with Ajani's Pridemate , but I think 4x Odric is too much. Odric as a four drop isn't good by himself, he requires other creatures to be good to use his combat trigger. You only want to cast Odric if you have an established battlefield of creatures to get his combat trigger and having a flier helps too.

Hawk seems better here than Aerial Responder since Hawk fills your hand with creatures and it also has flying. Tokens are good with the Sisters; Spectral Procession is three flying Spirits for three mana. Procession with a Warden or Attendant on the battlefield can pump Pridemate at least three times. For three mana Procession seems more impactful than Ritual of Rejuvenation . 4x Ritual, 4x Revitalize and 2x Reviving Dose seems too many cards for this effect and Revitalize is better than the others. Gaining life and drawing is important, but creatures are more important.

Cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 4x Ritual of Rejuvenation
  • 2x Reviving Dose
  • 4x Aerial Responder
  • 3x Auriok Champion
  • 1x Odric, Lunarch Marshal
  • 1x Lone Rider

Attendant being a one drop I think is better than the color protections of Champion who is a two drop and both have the same repeatable life gain ability. Champion could be a sideboard card, but not sure you even need him. Champion and gaining life is great hate against mono red and burn, but the strategy here is gaining life even without Champion. Good luck with your deck.

thanks for your answer!!

I really like the Glory-Bound Initiate and the Aethersphere Harvester also sounds great and I think about swapping it for Lone Rider  Flip since it is very dependent on your hand, I think.

I like the Sunmare and I already own it, but I'm not sure if I should put in more expensive creatures, also since I think that Archangel of Thune and Lyra are stronger in my Deck

Fervent Champion could be a more aggressive replacement for venerable knight.

Knight Exemplar can buff your other knights and give them indestructible.

Lone Rider  Flip also seems really powerful here, given you have enough incidental lifegain to get it to flip consistently.

Your manabase is fine, but I feel like you will have a hard time casting Light Up the Stage with only 4 lands that can cast it. Murderous Rider's first half may also be hard to cast because it's incompatible with tournament grounds. Same goes for smitten sword master.

Edict of Stone

Artifact - Edict

Activated abilities of artifacts cannot be activated.

Triggered abilities of artifacts cannot be triggered.


Create something that could exist on Innistrad. Bonus points if you create a flip card with an eldrazi form on the other side. (for example, Lone Rider  Flip, which flips into It That Rides as One )

Deck seems cool for a budget deck. Lone Rider  Flip seems really weak here given that you have no other ways of gaining life. I would recommend bringing in some Brave the Elements or maybe even some Expedition Envoy if you want some more creatures. If you need another anthem effect Honor of the Pure would slot great in this deck. If you can make the mana base a little more consistent(the best choice would be shelling out for some Sunpetal Grove if you can afford it, Mayor of Avabruck  Flip is a great (and cheap) option to give the deck a little more punch.

The Void of Mass Confusion and Too* Many (Key?)Words ;)

Sweet deck, young planeswalker; it seems most formidable. I have a couple thoughts about ways you can totally max out the value in every card in the deck!

Basically, I think you want to maximize the chances that all the creatures you have on the field are working together.

Swap Out These 14 Cards -3x Vampire Nighthawk -2x Serra Angel -3x Dub -1x Primevals' Glorious Rebirth -2x On Serra's Wings -1x Zetalpa, Primal Dawn -2x Llanowar Elves

For these badboys: +1x Healer's Hawk +2x Lone Rider  Flip +1x Fauna Shaman +2x Thalia's Lancers +1x Isareth the Awakener +2x Sylvan Caryatid +1x Birds of Paradise +2x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim +1x Vona, Butcher of Magan +1x Aryel, Knight of Windgrace

In general, you want to maximize your chances of game-winning synergy. I think these changes will help smooth out the mana curve, provide reliability to the central combos of the deck, and will add versatility to the things your deck can do in 'edge' cases.

Obviously these are just suggestions to help get your brain buzzin'. Here are some other zesty critters with keyword abilities: Pestilent Spirit Would work well with a more control-y and less aggro-y creature build Ochran Assassin (with a critical mass of creatures already on the battlefield, this could win lots of games) Elenda, the Dusk Rose Gifted Aetherborn

Another cool family of cards to consider is equipment. Odiric and knight exemplar could combo really well with Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Puresteel Paladin , Basilisk Collar , Loxodon Warhammer , and other powerful equipment.

Have fun sorcering! Your Bro
