Actually, those cards are there because I didn't know what to put in the deck. I've forgotten Debt to the Deathless. I think I'll put it in the deck instead of Sanguine Sacrament. Thank ;)

There are a few cards that confuse me such as Inspiring Cleric, Sanguine Sacrament, and Heroes Remembered. These life gain effects just don't seem nearly as impactful as something like Debt to the Deathless or other drain effects.

Atroxreaper: Gideon of the Trials is good and I've considered playing him, but cutting cards is an issue. I'm currently thinking overwhelming Splendor and trim some number of Tocatli Honor Guard, Sanguine Sacrament, and/or Thopter Arrest

take out Ashes of the Abhorrent Bright Reprisal Duskborne Skymarcher Inspiring Cleric Ritual of Rejuvenation Sword-Point Diplomacy and Walk the Plank, if you're going for more removal take out Walk the Plank and add 2 or 3 more Essence Extraction, take out 1 Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and add in 1 more Yahenni, Undying Partisan, add in 1 more Sanguine Sacrament and add in 4 Call to the Feast and 2 Queen's Commission, you also NEED to take out Forsaken Sanctuary, that card is illegal in standard now, and you have 8 over the limit to boot. You also need a playset (not just two) of Gifted Aetherborn and a total of 3 Legion's Landing  Flip, to finish this off put in a playset of Concealed Courtyard and put in 2 Vona, Butcher of Magan

If you want a reference, I made this deck here specifically for competitive play:

Hope the tips help, hope the decklist i linked helped, GL.

I think you need at least 2 more lands. Probably I would try some combinations of Flagstones of Trokair and Ghost Quarter: this allows you to target Flagstones with Quarter after tapping the first for mana, and basically fetch for two w/o losing mana nor life.

Intervention Pact, Awe Strike, Rest for the Weary are good choices, in my opinion, upon Sanguine Sacrament: they're cheaper and gain you some protection against creatures and/or damage spells that target you.

You also may consider to splash red for Deflecting Palm or Lightning Helix: in this case you can use a single Sacred Foundry and a mountain.

There's also the case you couldn't find Aetherflux Reservoir and need a "B" plan: Serra Ascendant would be a good choice, maybe replacing Marble Titan and one of the Rhoxes.

backinajiffy I would agree that Hope Tender normally is not a strong ramp card and your suggestion makes sense. I am however running this creature because of a silly combo option that can occur (admittingly not that likely). The combo was stated in the description of using Hope Tender with Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun (flipped form of Growing Rites of Itlimoc ). The idea was that I could tap the land for mana to generate a lot of green mana for all the tokens we have, then use the Tender to untap it and generate even more mana and sink it into cards like Master Trinketeer or Sanguine Sacrament.

I admit the combo seems a bit lack luster because I do not posses many cards to sink the mana into. Going to see what else I might be able to add to justify the cards inclusion.

Cool deck! Here a couple suggestions that I think will fit in with your life gain/+1+1 counter theme:

Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless - Either of these cards are fantastic finishers when you find yourself unable to attack and they play very well with your other cards like Sanguine Bond and Defiant Bloodlord. Cards I think you could switch out in favor of these two are Sanguine Sacrament and Beacon of Immortality. I personally don't believe straight life gain cards are all that useful as they don't really impact the board enough in EDH.

Phyrexian Arena, Greed, Underworld Connections, Well of Lost Dreams, Erebos, God of the Dead, and the criminally underrated Moonlight Bargain, etc. - You have very little card draw in your deck. I personally try to have at least 5-7 draw sources in each of my decks. On top of that, you should have tons of life to use as a resource to abuse these draw effects.

Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Return to Dust - Exiling is much better than destruction, plus you seem to be light on enchantment/artifact removal. These would help against cards like Propaganda or Ghostly Prison that can really hinder your deck.

Good luck with the deck!

I would recommend Relic of Progenitus or Rakdos Charm to deal with graveyard shenanigans, Leyline of Sanctity for burn, storm or the off chance you face a milling deck, and Stony Silence for Tron or Affinity. Also, maybe Rule of Law for storm as well? not sure if your deck could operate or not, but it for sure kills storm. I would also try running some Ghost Quarters main board. It helps to blow up utility lands.

And if you consider thebosslin's idea, I'd use Crypt Incursion or Sanguine Sacrament. They are both instant speed, Crypt Incursion cleans creatures out of a yard, and Sanguine Sacrament goes back in the library, so you could get away with a single copy. Creatures you could run would of course be the Soul Sisters Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, or the better of the two for an aggro strat, Suture Priest.

Hope I could help!
