Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

Skullclamp, Cathars' Crusade, and Reconnaissance feel like must haves in this deck. They all synergize with your main strategy and/or help to enable it.

Recruiter of the Guard, Karmic Guide, Viashino Heretic, Anarchist, Selfless Spirit and Iroas, God of Victory are creatures that would fit in quite well with your general strategy.

Instead of Mizzium Mortars and Cerebral Eruption as boardwipes; Wrath of God, Terminus, Toxic Deluge or Blasphemous Act would be better.

I would actually play Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as Solemn Visitor's + ability is something you want more than either of Lord of Innistrads abilities.

Enablers like Buried Alive, Victimize, Oversold Cemetery and Viscera Seer will help you to ensure you have things in your graveyard to abuse.

Your also lacking good finishers and Alesha tends to lean towards combos. For example, any sac outlet with Murderous Redcap and Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit will infinitely ping everyone.

Good Start here. I also built an orzhov lifegain deck early on when getting into EDH.

Some cards I'd rec:Rhox Faithmender, Wall of Limbs, Beacon of Immortality, Crypt Incursion, Boon Reflection, Celestial Mantle, One Thousand Lashes, Pillory of the Sleepless, Tainted Sigil, Chalice of Life  Flip, Marble Chalice,

Planeswalkers:Ajani Goldmane, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

I used Karlov of the Ghost Council instead of Obzedat. He's a ton of fun to play with. If you want to see my deck: Soul Shakedown Party

Why Sorin, Solemn Visitor and not Sorin, Lord of Innistrad? Doesn't Lord +1 benefit the deck a little more, as it's permanently buffing any future creatures too?

I think your win conditions are a bit slow and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is a bit misplaced. Another user already mentioned it, but I do think you could fairly easily make an 8-rack-esque styled deck featuring Isochron Scepter. It bdoes not seem too far off from what you're trying to do here.

Thanks for the comments, upvotez and suggestions guys!! <3

Shadow12721 I would definitely do that If this would be commander or casual.

Burila24 I would replace 1 of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad for Sorin, Grim Nemesis for now and see how he performs.

I'm a big fan of Atraxa. I too take to super friends route with her. I have a few suggestion. Personally I would run Bloom Tender over Gilded Lotus. It nets you more mana and for much cheaper.

I would also run Ghostly Prison over Norn's Annex. I think forcing an opponet to spend mana over life is a much better option. And again it will help with the curve.

Since you are running both Tamiyo's I would definitely add Ajani, Mentor of Heroes. If you have both Tamiyo's emblems and doubling season on the field you have infinite life. You can cast Ajani, Mentor of Heroes use his ultimate to gain 100 life send him to the graveyard, Put him back in you hand and cast him again for free. It's great.

With the above combo I would add Sorin, Grim Nemesis over Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Having a bagillion 1/1's with lifelink is hilarious.

I have a few more but I don't want to over bombard you. I would take out Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and add in Abrupt Decay Her only really useful ability is her -2, and having Abrupt Decay is just another way to abuse the dual Tamiyo's emblems.

I'd trade out Sorin, Lord of Innistrad for Sorin, Solemn Visitor just as a personal preference. His ultimate is more difficult to come back from also better for multiplayer and the token having flying is relevant in my experience. I'd also consider Bitterblossom to keep a steady stream of blockers coming out.

I might also go for a more midrange version of this build, maybe as a orzhov tokens deck. You could use cards like Sorin, Lord of Innistrad
