No Serra Avatar? Talk about an instant life double. Also Beacon of Immortality is another good card for that, and recurrable. Yes the cost is high, but doubling your life makes everyone's jaw drop.

Heya Foxy!

Based on what I've seen, I'd recommend cutting:

Dusk : This kills 48% of the creatures in your own deck.

Battlegrace Angel : with all your tokens and other angels, you'll rarely have anyone attacking alone.

Confessor : in a lot of cases, this guy won't do much.

Dawn Gryff

Geist of the Lonely Vigil

Ghost Warden/Angelic Page/Anointer of Champions : ditch 2, keep 1. they all do pretty much the same thing. Honestly, I'd axe all 3. There's cooler things you can put in their place.

Graceblade Artisan : not enough auras to make this dude worth it

Guardian of Pilgrims

Herald of Dromoka : there's only two warriors in the deck, so he doesnt have much combo potential

Moorland Drifter

Spectral Rider

Sublime Archangel

Territorial Roc

Weathered Wayfarer

Things I'd suggest adding:

Icatian Crier

Champion of the Parish

Elite Inquisitor

Benalish Marshal

Glorious Anthem

Commander's Authority

Seraph Sanctuary

Thraben Doomsayer

Mask of Avacyn

Ajani's Mantra


Always Watching

Intangible Virtue

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite

Unruly Mob

Crusader of Odric

If you want more suggestions, lemme know and I can provide them. IF you need to trim down more creatures, try looking for things that are outside the theme of your deck. For example, it seems your focus is many small white creatures, life gain, big flyers/angels, and +1/+1 counters, so it would make sense to start trimming down by removing things that don't fit with that theme.

Good luck and happy decking! -Toothy

I'm confused as to why this is an Abzan deck? There's no black cards except for Siege Rhino, and it's completely ruining your mana curve. I'm also unsure why Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is in this. It has no way to protect itself, meaning the -8 will almost never be pulled off. The +1s are pitiful, and even with Serra Avatar, it's either useless or win-more. Also, since the point of the deck is too gain life, why isn't there any board control? Oblivion Ring should be an auto-include for board control, alongside Wrath of God, which is a much better 4 CMC card than the aforementioned rhino.

Have you thought about Serra Avatar, or Felidar Sovereign? Those are always fun in life-gain decks, especially with cards like Rhox Faithmender or Boon Reflection- not to mention crazy shenanigans with Aetherflux Resivour.

another combo i think fits the theme of you deck is Wall of Reverence+Serra Avatar. double your life total every turn and remain untouchable until someone either concedes or goes infinite, and if you have Sanguine Bond in play its an even better wincon.

favorite lifegain combo ever is Wall of Reverence+Serra Avatar. double your life every turn, and when Sanguine Bond is out, loses what you gain.
