EpoH on White Counters Lifegain

5dollarMTG Im honestly a bit afraid of anything with a high CMC (and i know that 4 is not even that high), so Gideon's Company might be the card i need to overcome that fear. Might Replace him for 2 Murder Investigation since i havent seen much of its use in play, don't think i'll take out any other creature for it because the synergy i've been getting is insane.

Nice reply, and i agree with most of what you’ve said. I’m also someone who would rather brew than netdeck. I think a lot of my “lifegain” gripes come from introducing players to magic and seeing them overvaluing the mechanic, leading to a long line of “bad decks” until they work out that life totals don’t represent who’s ahead.

You mention my vagueness in suggestions thus far, and i do agree - i’ve been waiting to hear from EpoH to see what they actually want this deck to do.

If i were to make an actual suggestion of deck changes, it’s be:

-4 Felidar Sovereign

-1 Serra Avatar

-4 Soulmender

-2 Elixir of Immortality

-4 Sunbeam Spellbomb

-2 Rest for the Weary

-4 Chaplain's Blessing

-2 Sunspring Expedition

+2 Aerial Responder

+4 Oblivion Ring

+4 Serene Steward

+3 Sunscorch Regent

+3 Syndic of Tithes

+4 Soul Warden

+2 Murder Investigation

+1 Plains

This removes a lot of the “pointless” lifegain cards, while still offering a lot of life for the Pridemate. It lets you actually interact with your opponent (the Ring), and Murder Investigations help you safeguard a bulky Pridemate. But this would make a completely different deck, and might not be what EpoH is after (hence my hesitation to suggest anything)

Daemon_Prince91 thank you for your comment, Murder Investigation would be a sweet card but unfortunately I don't have room for it in this build. When I first build this Elenda deck, I had an alternative deck that was aura voltron focused and in it I had the card you recommended.

Nice this is a very similar idea I had to my Izoni deck. I have a recommendation.

Fallen Ideal is amazing and it's great to see it in here. Less well-known is Murder Investigation , which will double the token output. Sure, they won't be lifelink vampires but they make excellent sac fodder.

Also, this card combos with teysa so you're getting quadruple tokens for 2 Mana. Well-worth the investment.

Comory on I die, you die, we all die, bye bye!

so i have a green black and white black life gain token janky decks im finishing. but my main sac outlet is Nantuko Husk i find it by far the best sac option also combos well with Essence Harvest and Dying Wish as nantuko husk can sac itself to itself so you can 1 shot pretty easy with it. also for fun you can run Murder Investigation for more tokens!

hope this help have fun.

I like where you're going with this. +1.

Perhaps scale your Legends down to 2 a piece to prevent dead draws. That opens 5 slots.

Trade Raise the Alarm for Lingering Souls. Consider adding a Vault of the Archangel.

Other neat cards to look at: Doomed Dissenter, Skirsdag High Priest, Hunted Witness, Murder Investigation, Bontu the Glorified and Divine Visitation.
