Ritual of Rejuvenation Discussion

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.

Hey Caboose763 There's a significant chance that losing Ritual of Rejuvenation and Revitalize will hamstring the deck. But if it looks to remain viable we'll do an update for you!

Dawn of Hope can combo with Fountain of Renewal but Fountain is a meh card. You can use Treasure Map  Flip, I personally used to doubt this card but people will literally counter this with a Syncopate which shows how much advantage it gains you. There's also the simple draw spells of Discovery / Dispersal which you already have listed, Revitalize / Ritual of Rejuvenation , and Sword-Point Diplomacy .

I don't know what you tested against but I've had nothing but issues with your mana base. If you're happy with it though, that's what matters.

For the SB you have:

  • 2x Cleansing Nova - too expensive for what you need it for
  • 2x Demystify - lack of versatility isn't worth the low cost in this environment
  • Despark - why only one? This card is awesome
  • 2x Divest - why? Why not Last Gasp instead
  • 3x Duress - in a control dominant environment this is a main deck card. Even in SB you should run a full set
  • 1x Mortify - why only one and why is this not main
  • 3x Revitalize - The decks you'd bring this against are going to inflict a lot more than 3. Try The Wanderer or since you plan to make a lot of tokens what about Ajani, Wise Counselor or Ajani's Welcome . Or Ritual of Rejuvenation is just better if you're worried about burn
  • Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord - he doesn't impress me.

So there's that. Can you PLEASE do me a favor... you don't have to keep it this way but can you at least TRY taking out Risk Factor because it absolutely sucks in your deck and replace it with Chromatic Lantern ¿ just for a little bit? Give it a few games and if it doesn't work then change it back. ..

Revitalize , Fountain of Renewal , Ill-Gotten Inheritance , and Ritual of Rejuvenation could all help. I wouldn't add them all, but some would probably help.

Some options would be Leonin Vanguard and maybe Ritual of Rejuvenation which would be flavorly known as the B I G M I L K.

Thanks for replying so quick DangoDaikazoku! I have indeed watched After Story. No lie, I sobbed.

Thanks for your recommendations on the 3 drops, I was thinking a few of those as well. After looking over some more cards on Gatherer, I came up with a couple more ideas as well, if you wouldnt mind giving me your opinion? I know you're not used to the standard meta, which is totally fine.

The ones I'd like feedback on, and why I chose them, are these:

Main Board:

Chromatic Lantern, replacing 2 Pillar of Origins, opening another two 2 drops, which I would replace with Amulet of Safekeeping, Blink of an Eye, Board the Weatherlight, Discovery / Dispersal, Find / Finality, Revitalize, Root Snare, Search for Azcanta  Flip, Song of Freyalise, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, or I could add back some more walls.

March of the Multitudes, with the ability to convoke, this could be an alternate win condition, just in case my Arcades, the Strategist gets taken out somehow.

Militia Bugler, this allows me to scry 4 and grab any Wall I want, or Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive.

Quasiduplicate, for extra Walls, plus Jump Start.

Ritual of Rejuvenation, for life gain plus card draw

Wayward Swordtooth, land advantage, plus possible win condition

Side board:

Sinister Sabotage, counter spell, plus surveil to potentially get rid of something I dont need.

Slaughter the Strong, could potentially board wipe my opponent

Sprouting Renewal, convoke, plus 2/2 creature, or artifact/enchantment removal

Sylvan Awakening, potential alternate win condition

Unwind, counter plus untap lands

Broken Bond, artifact/enchantment removal, plus land advantage

So, although the appeal of cards like Sovereign's Bite is obvious, it doesn't necessarily change the board any or give you anything else. Another card that suffers from this is Healing Grace. Bite does give you damage and Grace could help a creature stay alive in a fight, but I'm sure that's worth it. Do you see what I mean? You could totally run cards that give you the life you're looking for with other abilities such as Revitalize, Ritual of Rejuvenation, Shield Mare, etc.

For some ideas, you could look at my similar deck.
