Snow lands aren't legal in Standard. I recommend getting rid of the Snow-Covered Island , Snow-Covered Plains and the Snow-Covered Forest and replace them with Island , Plains and Forest respectfully.

Here's a tip: don't put any value on that competitive meter. While the meter might give you some rough estimate of where your deck is at, it is generally very inaccurate (for example, people have made joke decks that play off-color lands/spells and have a 100% competitive rating while top-tier competitive decks may not reach 100% on the meter) and should definitely not be used as a criteria to base your card choices off of. And while it's true that Path is the premier white removal spell, it's not like excluding it will make your deck noticeably less competitive. In the end, your deck's capability to win games relies on its overall construction, not the presence of a single card, however good that card may be.

I think a life gain weenie deck like yours is better off with the sisters and Spectral Procession than Chalice of Life  Flip/ Path of Bravery / Rest for the Weary . The sisters are much better with Ajani's Pridemate than Martyr of Sands, which only triggers it once on sacrifice. Being that Pridemate and Serra Ascendant are your two most potent threats and the inclusion of the sisters will also help with activating Serra Ascendant, they are better for the overall plan of the deck than the Chalice and Path of Bravery. Spectral Procession is good with the soul sisters, makes great blockers, and is also a potent threat in itself. Tokens help a lot in the midrange/control matchups. I'd start testing with 6 soul sisters and 4 Spectral Procession and go from there.

The life gain from Perimeter Captain isn't as good as Giver of Runes ' protection, so I also recommend making that switch if you can afford it.

As for a replacement for Path, I'd suggest On Thin Ice , from Horizons. It's sorcery-speed but is the same cmc and doesn't give your opponent a land, which is a pretty big upside. It's the perfect budget replacement for Path imo. They're also reprinting Snow-Covered Plains and friends, so I believe it comes out at about $18 for the lands and On Thin Ices, quite a bit cheaper than 4 Paths.

ClockworkSwordfish, The utility of Scrying Sheets seems tempting, but there is rarely any Mana left over for an effect that might add a land into my hand. Coldsteel Heart isn't worth it as it comes in tapped (not a big deal turn 2 or 3 but quite detrimental on turn 8). Also, the point of the Snow-Covered Plains is to help prevent others from benefiting from Extraplanar Lens .

Thanks you for your suggestions, though!!

You don't know how happy I am whenever I see another fan of... ELDRAZI TRIBAL!!! First thing I want to say is that Primeval Titan and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn are banned in EDH (sorry EMMY). Before I start listing upgrades/good additions to this list I will say that I'm not gonna go name any of the Moxes ( Chrome Mox , Mox Diamond , etc) as good additions because they are 100% not needed, but just good investments for the future. (Things like Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Fetchlands, and Grim Monolith go along with the Moxes.)

What I would add that I think would really benefit the deck a lot:

1) Cavern of Souls , it is a bit pricey and not needed, but trust me if you had to choose betweeen a Mana Vault + Chrome Mox or just one Cavern of Souls I would highly recommend Cavern of Souls

2) Put more 2 cmc ramp cards in (the first thing I would change on this list), Fellwar Stone , Selesnya Signet , Rampant Growth , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Farseek , Nature's Lore , Three Visits (this one's a bit pricey), Into the North (only if you switch to Snow-Covered Plains and Snow-Covered Forest , they also make your Extraplanar Lens better)

BTW, I could list a bunch of other upgrades, but these are the ones I think will be most beneficial to your deck. If you would like me to write a full list of everything I would add from most beneficial to least I will gladly do that, but let me know if you have a budget on the cards you would like me to list first. Have a nice day and long live the ELDRAZI!!!

I forgot to mention Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand , Marsh Flats & Windswept Heath can be pretty useful to include. While at first they may not seem to do much, they make an incredibly strong synergy with Crucible of Worlds as you'll always be guaranteed to hit your next land drop that way by continually being able to pull them out of your graveyard. (Until you run out of basic Snow-Covered Plains of course.) Buying fetch-lands for such a minimal improvement might not be worth it, but if you have spares they really make a good synergy!

Speaking of snow-lands, Sunstone is a really good panic-button if one of your opponent plans to deal lethal out of nowhere. Being able to deny someone a combat step on demand is pretty strong, especially if you have a Crucible of Worlds to fuel it.

Since your mono-colored Extraplanar Lens and Snow-Covered Plains can't hurt anything except your wallet.
