Sorin, Solemn Visitor Discussion

It seems like your only lifegain comes from Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Vault of the Archangel, I would consider cutting Archangel of Thune for more lands. Maybe try Concealed Courtyard? I might also run some number of Hidden Stockpile over Wall of Omens, to keep with the token theme and for scry power. Overall looks good to me, +1 and have fun!

Cool deck. You have 16 cards total that either remove cards from hand, or from the battlefield. That's a really high number. If it were me, I would remove some of those cards in favor of Soul Warden and Dark Confidant.

Other than that, Elspeth, Knight-Errant would be really good, and it's cmc is just low enough to run it with Dark Confidant, so long as you still have the life gain from Soul Warden and Sorin, Solemn Visitor. One copy of Secure the Wastes is a nice top-deck in the late game as well, and is only one point of damage if you draw it off of confidant.

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?

gamewizard7 on Abzan Midrange: Advice Wanted

Hi All,Thanks for the great input you have given me! Here is what I am considering for the next deck update:

  1. -3 Valorous Stance +3 Fatal Push
  2. -1 Geier Reach Sanitarium,+1 Blooming Marsh
  3. +1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (Note: I don't have him yet, but I know someone with it that I could possibly trade with) -1 Sorin, Solemn Visitor

A lot of the cards suggested are too expensive because I don't want to pay that much money for single cards, like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Grim Flayer. I will try to find people with these cards and trade with them. I appreciate the advice and I will keep those cards in mind when the prices go down :)

Thank you all for the advice, let me know if there is anything I should add to the next update!

I also forgot about Sorin, Solemn Visitor, since you're on the lifegain plan.

BlackjackHD on Copter Mardu Midrange

I've been playing Mardu in modern since before it was a thing which it apparently is now. My deck takes on a substantially different strategy than yours, but we Mardu guys need to stick together, and with that in mind I have some suggestions.

First up, lands. 6 man lands is excessive. You're going to have lands enter tapped far too often. I recommend dropping Needle Spires and one or two Shambling Vent for some more fetch lands. Modern Masters 17 just reprinted Arid Mesa and Marsh Flats, so their prices aren't as ridiculous as when I had to get them.

Like my deck, you use your life total as a resource to generate advantage through Bob and Thoughtseize and recuperate with lifegain, so I vibe with that. Sorin, Solemn Visitor seems like a great fit for your strategy, so I'd consider bumping him up to 2. Liliana of the Veil continues to be the ultimate control planeswalker in Modern and should definitely be a 4-of.

Veteran Motorist seems really lackluster. Pumping your looter scooters is great, but he's completely useless otherwise. The best part about Copter is its undercosted crew ability, and Motorist is overqualified. The earlier mention of Bitterblossom may be worth considering.

Fatal Push needs to be in your deck in some capacity. I've been running 2 main 1 sideboard. You could drop a Path to Exile for one. The card is way too good to not use.

Lastly, the sideboard. Ajani Vengeant was my first "core" planeswalker in my deck and I became wholesomely dissatisfied with him. I can't imagine a matchup in which you board him in. Sorin gains you more life and Lily controls better. Crumble to Dust is good, but slow. Consider Fulminator Mage, as he can also crew copters. Hide/Seek is weird, just use Wear / Tear. Liliana, the Last Hope seems okay, but not great. I think Soulfire Grand Master is a mainboard card or not at all present. Tormod's Crypt should be either Leyline of the Void, Rest in Peace or Nihil Spellbomb. RiP is risky with Lingering Souls, but it gets the job done, and against decks like Dredge, the disruption is strong enough to slow your own development down and still win handily. I also absolutely recommend two copies of Slaughter Games to help deal with combo decks. Dreadbore and Falkenrath Aristocrat can probably go.
