Sin Collector Discussion

Sin Collector, Entomber Exarch, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Shepherd of Rot if you go the zombie direction. While expensive, Grave Betrayal is great if you go the whole stacks directions with Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, Fleshbag Marauder, Slum Reaper, Butcher of Malakir and those guys, which I have in my Meren deck, and I don't want decks too similar.

All right then, now we can break things down.
First of all, I would recommend splashing a color. Blue and Black both have their merits, but with a meta full of Gifts Storm and Eldrazi/Shadow lists, splashing Black for Sin Collector and either Shriekmaw or Big Game Hunter (Probably the hunter due to Death's Shadow). I think that splashing colors is incredibly easy for this deck with the four-of Birds of Paradise and all of the green fetches, so you just need to add a one-of Overgrown Tomb and call it a day.
In terms of other cards in the deck, I might go down one Eternal Witness and up another Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker. There are many times that the deck has only the option to win through the combo, and getting one kiki killed and having a backup can be very important. In addition, you have more recursion with Renegade Rallier, so you are able to safely drop that EWit.
Is there any other help you want with the deck?

lagotripha: Auratog isn't as strong a blowout as the engine I already have prepared, and I'm not too keen on sacrificing non-tokens. Likewise Devour Flesh, Sin Collector, Nevermore and Runed Halo don't provide enough power to compensate for not drawing one of my combo pieces.
Call the Bloodline is a good card to add, but I rarely draw anything that I don't want to play.
Porphyry Nodes is just a little too risky.

A better replacement for Braids, Cabal Minion would be World Queller, you get to choose what everyone sacs and you hit more target types. Have you thought of running Sin Collector, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, or Archfiend of Depravity?

Auratog for blowout wins? Devour Flesh to turn that auratog into an insane lifetotal and back out of adjani draws? Call the Bloodline to turn dead cards into lifelinkers stalling the game? Sin Collector Nevermore or Runed Halo for combo? Porphyry Nodes/Timely Reinforcements for stall?

Nice deck, just a couple suggestions:
- Restoration Angel over Wingmate Roc. I know you defended the Roc in your description, but it feels like Restoration Angel just works with the rest of the deck better than Wingmate Roc since its cheaper and offers more utility (flash, blinking any one of your other etb value cards). I feel like you may want to bring in your 2nd Restoration Angel before you bring in your 1st Wingmate Roc
- Sin Collector/Orzhov Pontiff/Qasali Pridemage to the sideboard? This kind of speaks to the "1of" strategy in the mainboard here. It may serve you better running these as 1ofs in your sideboard as silver bullets you can bring in over running in the mainboard and having them flop in game 1.
I have a similar deck over here -> Value City Rallier if youd like to take a look. There are definitely things I like in your deck: Thragtusk as your top end, Collective Brutality as tempo, Renegade Rallier+Voice of Resurgence synergy. Keep up the good work!

Aether Vial set to 2 or 3 ticks is fine for this deck, I think, playing Tidehollow Sculler or Sin Collector on oponents turn is really nice. Athreos, god of the passage seems easier to get online and win with than Liege. His devotion is silly easy to get with this deck, even easier with vial and few more 2 or 3 drop creatures.I would cut a few paths(Giving oponent land when playing a slower deck, eesh) for Fatal Push. Also not really a big fan of Lingering Souls or Bitterblossom in this list as they seem more suited for a midrange tokens deck.

Cool idea moving out of Jeskai. I see a few changes that might be beneficial to the deck.
Firstly, you have no means of drawing additional cards. Normally Dark Confidant would be the perfect card, but your curve is way too high for him. Maybe try Phyrexian Arena to help you out with that. Other options include Ob Nixilis Reignited, Read the Bones and Painful Truths. These all come at the cost of paying life, so you'll want some way of gaining some of that back. But card draw is a must, so definitely find a way to generate some.
Secondly, you have tons and tons of removal. There are decks that aren't oriented around creatures; against those decks many of your cards will be dead in your hand. Even against creature decks, too much removal means that you're reacting to whatever your opponent is doing. This is never a great strategy.
You can try taking out a chunk of your removal spells to add in some creatures to pressure your opponent. This can also serve as an alternate win condition, should anything happen to Nahiri. Sin Collector, Desecration Demon and Restoration Angel are all very affordable creatures that have impactful effects on the game. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is also good, even in modern.
Now for the sideboard. You should definitely run Stony Silence and Rest in Peace. Basically every white deck has some amount of these two cards in the sideboard. They're amazing, run them. Past that, Spellskite is never a bad idea, nor is Fulminator Mage.
What you should really do is playtest this against as many decks as you can, and find out what your worst matchups are. Then you can make a sideboard plan from there.
Hope I was helpful. Cool deck, hope it all works well for you!
