i would absolutely cut the Orzhov Signets and Birds of Paradises for more lands. other cards to consider: Mortify, Lingering Souls, Inquisition of Kozilek, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. and yeah the Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better than that other one.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor? Seems better than the other Sorin.

Yes, Sorin, Solemn Visitor is a good choice, but I'm yet considering how it would work compared to Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Gideon provides a different way other than tokens to attack the opponent. I would try both on VPT.

I would drop both Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim because they only search out forests, I understand that the forests come into play untapped but it still limits what land you can grab significantly. I might also add someone like Sorin, Solemn Visitor just for the the lifegain, He is also easier to play considering many of your opponent's counter spells will be focused on the more dominant planeswalkers, (He is kinda underestimated)

I understand you are trying to cut, I find it hard as well.

I would trade Swords to Plowshares for Path to Exile

Also with atraxa another good infect win is Ichor Rats because it just gives every player a poison counter. allowing for a 9 turn counter to start as long as you can keep proliferating.

No Sorin, Solemn Visitor? Not only does he give all of your creatures lifelink and +1/0, but he also provides a vampire token.

Hidden Stockpile is interesting, might be worth testing. Smuggler's Copter I've always been against since it turns on enemy removal that's otherwise dead, but now I see Craig Wescoe championing a slightly weird build with a playset of them, so maybe it's time I rethought that position?

As for Sram's Expertise, I feel like it's tough to justify over Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Sorin, Solemn Visitor (ironically the former is the card's main problem in standard, also). Our planeswalkers are just so powerful, and we can only play so much 4cmc. I will say I like the idea slightly better in G/W tokens, as they have dorks to help with the cmc, and more really potent 3cmc spells to cheat in off it. They're also a more goldfishy deck than us, and Expertise is all about trading power and long game value for speed.

As for Fatal Push, I'd say it replaces all mb removal after Path to Exile for anyone with a playset of Marsh Flats and 8+ fetches total; I'd probably want 3 copies personally. For people without Marsh Flats, I'm not sure, would need to be tested, but the lack of the option to fetch for a Swamp and cast it for 1 life instead of 3 is a big deal in a lot of matchups.

Bitterblossom is modern? When did this happen?? is my personal pet deck and I love it. Depending on the hand you can go aggro and kill them turn 3-4 or you can play the grindy game with Bitterblossom and win through inevitability.

There are few things more satisfying that swinging with 10 3/2 flying spirit tokens with lifelink with Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Intangible Virtue on field.

It has good matchup against a lot of the meta decks and goes even against most others. It hard loses to R/G tron though so be wary. It has plenty of life gain from Sorin, Timely Reinforcements, and Vault of the Archangel, and Shambling Vent that it can make it hard to kill you at times. You can churn out chump blockers and with Vault of the Archangel, those chump blockers can kill anyone. Liliana of the Veil churns out pure value with discarding Lingering Souls.

All in all its a really fun deck that I love playing. I'm constantly updating the list and looking to see what can be made better. My sideboard is against a generic meta if you don't know what you'll be against.
