"What if" you add Momentous Fall + Serra Avatar Combo?

crispyman101 on Life Gain

I really like the deck idea!If I may suggest a few cards that may help with the life gain itself, you should consider throwing in a Pristine Talisman. It's a basic colorless mana rock that goes towards gaining you life as well when using it. Also, Celestial Mantle is very strong enchantment that can get completely bonkers after even one hit. For a high mana cost, Celestial Force can also quickly vamp up your life total, and it can be especially useful in multiplayer with a few friends.

Utilizing life gain to power other cards is another focus that makes life gain fun as well. Especially if that creature's power and toughness is equal to your life. INTRODUCING SERRA AVATAR!!! Serra Avatar is mental. And if your massive/massive champion gets shut down any way, you can use Ayli's ability at instant speed to instantly double your life total.. In addition, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant is very strong, usually automatically giving your creatures protection.

Awsome deck idea, I like the Commander and can't wait to see how it turns out!

Huatli actually seems... pretty damn good in a build for either tokens or just big stompy things. I can see her working well in decks with cards like Serra Avatar in EDH.

Whenever equipped creature deals combat damage to a player, create a Serra Avatar token.

Make something flavorfully related to Ashiok

I'm a big fan of True Conviction and Serra Avatar in life gain decks.

If you want to go crazy, I recommend Rhox Faithmender, Alhammarret's Archive and maybe Augur il-Vec for a great target for your Celestial Mantles.

Silence, Lightning Helix and Voltaic Key can also work nicely with Isochron Scepter

Aetherflux Reservoir is a great card to pay life to deal damage.

Serra Avatar is great for massive damage if you keep up your life total.

I don't know about your budget, but Greater Auramancy is better than Cloud Cover. You also have cards like Enlightened Tutor and other tutors to faster find your wincons.
Drana's Emissary is not a great draining card, especially since it's a creature. If you wanted to continue further with the drain theme, a card like Palace Siege would be better.
Sunscorch Regent is an odd card. Which I would easily take out for other cards, such as Divinity of Pride, Serra Ascendant or Serra Avatar.
Remand isn't that great in commander, I'd rather have a card like Disallow or Dissolve.
Bontu's Monument. Not a great addition to the deck, considering your low amount of creatures in the deck. Oracle's Vault could be a substitute.

Overall, I like this deck, since it reminds me of my own first commander deck Oloro, Controlling your foes to death
