IT's really boring advice but how to get this deck to work:

step 1: Get a set of Aether Vials.

step 2: Remove your 2 discard spells (too unreliable, when you only have those two), Dust Elemental and Stonehorn Dignitary. Add the 4 Aether Vials from step 1.

step 3: win games (this is the funny step).

Aether Vials aren't stupid, even if they're not very budget-friendly. You can do all kinds of tricks with Flickerwisp at instant speed, which you can't otherwise. You probably know about Mangara of Corondor and Flickerwisp, but you can do variations on the same trick with Tidehollow Sculler (you blink the Tidehollow Sculler, while its ETB-trigger is still on the stack, so the second trigger becomes impossible to fulfill, and your opponents card is now exiled for good - can also be used with Fiend Hunter).

the manadorks... why 3, and why exactly those 3? I've seen other decks run 5 mana dorks, because that fairly often starts them with one on hand, especially if you are willing to mulligan for that. But 3 mana animals I don't really understand.

Soul Warden, Stonehorn Dignitary and Sin Collector are mostly sideboard cards, to be brought in against opponents where they are useful.

The deck looks nice, but even for casual i would cut the deck to 60 cards, just better for the odds. Also I think Thalia's Lieutenant would better fit than Soul Warden. And maybe lose the red, not worth it to play 7 mountains just for one card.

That said, check it out if you're interested. The cards:

Lot 1: 1x Snapcaster Mage and 1x Serum Visions (Price: $37.50 free shipping)

Wow, that's a blazing fast meta. Where I play, control and midrange are much more prevalent. Your direction makes sense in light of that.

Good call on Kytheon's flip alleviating the legendary redundancy to some degree. Woe-Reaper remains the one card I'm not totally sold on; although they're less effective attackers, Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant sound like they'd be better value for your creature-heavy, aggressive meta.

So I note you haven't considered lands as yet. For casual play the common/uncommon tap lands are ok, however the rare lands can get expensive. For your deck and theme I would suggest Scoured Barrens and Blighted Steppe.

Soul Warden is a card you will want, probably over Deathgreeter alternatively Perimeter Captain might be an option. Falkenrath Noble is probably too slow, consider cards like Lone Rider  Flip, Gifted Aetherborn, Blood Artist, Ajani's Pridemate or Voracious Hatchling. For a finisher a card like Blood Baron of Vizkopa or Divinity of Pride would fit.

Last but not least non-creature spells. At simplest buy a set of Duress and Despise for disruption alongside Journey to Nowhere and Victim of Night for removal.

If you don't mind spending a bit more Westvale Abbey  Flip or Athreos, God of Passage are fun cards... I hope this is of help!

My first comment amateur translate to english //it was writen for czechs casuals players//This is classic lifegain deck using classic soul sisters cards Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant for massive lifegainthat helps Ajani's Pridemate to get lots of counters.I hope to flip of Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip ASAP for powerfull creature and more trigers from sisters on the end of turn.Doomed Traveler he is a great blocker and when it dies,and return as spirit token and provide me another trigger.I know Genesis Chamber create lot's of token for me and for my opponent but it's give me lot of lives from sisters and when is Suture Priest on battlefield,the opponent losse live for every creature who was cast he.When your oponet have lots of Myr tokens it's time to cast Blood Artist and Zealous Persecution

Hahaha. Bro, this is crazy. I just made a deck like this 3 days ago, but without the humans sub-theme. If you wanna check it out, here you go Aristocrats and bob.

The decks are really similar, so maybe you'll see something on that list that you didn't think of. After seeing this list, I think I'll add High Priest of Penance to my own.

Have you thought about Champion of the Parish? I think it would go really well in this deck. Keeps with the humans theme, and also makes it a bit more agro. Soul Warden is also good. Cool deck!

TheVectornaut on Green/White Lifegain

I'd hesitate to call this a lifegain deck with so few ways to actually gain life. Running so many taplands for the life is rarely worth it- I wouldn't want to run more than 4. Centaur Healer and Heroes' Reunion are strong enough for play, at least casually, but having only two copies between the two of them makes it hard to insure you'll draw them. Wurm's Tooth and the other artifacts within that cycle are fairly weak in general, and that's assuming you're in a mono-color deck. There are plenty of ways to gain life in G/W that I'd use before the tooth. Finally, Gonti's Machinations isn't terrible, but it lacks a home in a deck like this that doesn't have any other ways to generate/utilize energy. Resourceful Return too is weak enough that I wouldn't want to splash black just to play it. If you'd like to get the most out of lifegain, I might recommend incorporating some elements from soul sisters decks. Soul Warden, Essence Warden, Ajani's Pridemate, and Serra Ascendant are some examples, though I'm sure decklists on Tappedout would have many more.

Since a lot of the cards here seem to be found in the recent Ajani planeswalker deck, it might be easier to instead focus on the revolt mechanic as something to build around. This still allows for some element of lifegain, but it also increases the value of cards like Narnam Renegade, Unbridled Growth, and Rancor. To make this strategy work, I'd definitely add more spells with revolt. Of course, you also want a good number of ways to reliably trigger the ability. One interesting way I thought of while looking through this decklist was to use "blinking". Cloudshift, Eerie Interlude, Long Road Home, and the like can make ETB focused cards like Trostani's Summoner and Ridgescale Tusker shine while simultaneously triggering revolt. (It is worth noting that blinking removes counters and tokens, so some caution might need to be taken, at least with Interlude.) If that's not your style, there are plenty of alternatives like creatures that sacrifice themselves, enchantments that can be returned to your hand, and even fetchlands. Well, that's my suggestion anyway.
