Another card you could add, and make it modern, is Soul Warden. It might be more efficient than Dwarven Priest, and it benefits Ajani's Pridemate more than Dwarven Priest.

Test of Endurance is another alternate win condition, and it is harder to remove that Felidar Sovereign. Approach of the Second Sun works, too.

Crested Sunmare works well with Soul Warden and Sunscorch Regent.

But if you're going with sacrificing creatures, I'd say run Dictate of Erebos or Grave Pact.

Why not go for Soul Sisters (Soul Warden+Soul's Attendant/Essence Warden to use to run your vehicles. Use their life gain as a way to safely get to the mid game, then tap them to activate the vehicles. Since you're running green, you could also go with the Arbor Elf/Voyaging Satyr+Utopia Sprawl/Wild Growth. Gives you more 1/1's to operate your vehicles / block with, and creatures to activate your soul sisters life gain.

At risk of turning this into a Soul Sisters tokens deck, you could use Soul Warden, Essence Warden, Suture Priest, and/or Soul's Attendant. It would take advantage of all your creature ETBs to give you some life gain on top of it. They also give you some Turn 1 plays, which you have none of right now.

Nice deck.

Through, from my oppinion, its better to protect life gain generators, that can do multiple triggers each circle (from your turn to your next turn) Soul Warden. Also, suggest Student of Ojutai.

So, deck would be stronger and more stable, if you remove cards that give life only once Lagonna-Band Elder,War Report, and even cards that give life once per circle Silent Attendant, then add more protection to play over Soul Warden-alike cards: Angelic Renewal, Hyena Umbra

Congregate usually gains me a ton of life. Martyr of Sands can gain a lot of life, too. Soul sisters Soul's Attendant+Soul Warden are great life gain creatures. Might want some Chalice of Life  Flip or Felidar Sovereign or Aetherflux Reservoir This deck is 10 cards over the minimum. It should have no more than 26 lands - that's still a TON!

Saljen Thanks for the input. I've cut Quicksilver Amulet for Soul Warden. I want to stick with red for Mantis Rider. It is a great threat with some impressive evasion. Having Haste makes up for some of the slower plays this deck makes early on.

purplesandpaper: As somebody else pointed out, the good thing about Soul's Attendant over Soul Warden is that with the Attendant, you do not have to gain the life in case you play against lifegain hate. But it might depend on the local meta to justify the budget difference.

I was also wondering if it might be worthwhile to add a delve beater like Hooting Mandrills to stall in case you get in trouble? (I do not hink they are powerful enough to be an extra win-con.)
