ThunderThighs on Getting a Life

Maybe try Nyx-Fleece Ram, Orzhov Basilica, Staff of the Death Magus, Staff of the Sun Magus, Soulmender, Sungrace Pegasus, or Serene Steward

Using Serene Steward you can trigger its mana ability to buff every time you gain life. I use Athreos, God of Passage in my Orzhov deck as my commander

Most of these aren't standard legal but if you're just playing casually or looking for a commander deck

Im a total sucker for lifegain. Love this deck!!! I just wanted to suggest a couple of cards that I use Sunbond, Soulmender, and Drana's Emissary

Funny aspect, I really like it. Why not throw a Nyx-Fleece Ram or Soulmender, though? They're pretty much gain life each turn. Secondly, Abhorrent Overlord can work really well, sacrificing your Bloodsoaked Champion (which I would trade out for Oathsworn Vampire), and if you want to risk Awakening Zone, you can use your Eldrazi Tokens to snag a green mana.

I would definitely recommend a few one drops: Soulmender is just a good drop in the deck, giving you a free lifegain trigger every time.Vampire Cutthroat is another great, especially as a T1 drop, because its presumable he can swing in for some sweet, sweet lifelink damage after you drop Karlov on T2.God-Pharaoh's Faithful could also be useful with a high enough density of black spells.Nyx-Fleece Ram is also an all-star in this deckAuthority of the Consuls proves to be another effective drop, providing similar effects to both Blind Obedience and Soul Warden

Honestly, this deck looks like a more casual version of Soul Sisters, a competitive lifegain deck from the early days of the Modern format. The link I just gave gives a pretty comprehensive breakdown of that deck, but for the bits that would work in your deck without making major changes...

Soul's Attendant: Here, you seem to have dropped copies 5-8 of Soul Warden. This is technically better because you could choose not to gain life if that would be bad for some reason, but you really just wanted more. Better than Soulmender, and because you gaining life increases your damage output it's also almost always better than Suture Priest

Auriok Champion: Even more Soul Sisters! While this one costs double to play, the protection from black and red is extra good right now thanks to the prevalence of black aggro decks, and makes it very hard to remove unless your opponent is using Path to Exile.

Spectral Procession: 3 1/1 flying tokens for 3 mana. Triggers each soul sister in play 3 times, meaning a +3, +6, maybe even +9 for your Ajani's Pridemate and Archangel of Thune.

I could go on, but that seems like a good jumping off point that won't break the bank.

Another alternative to Soulmender could be Suture Priest. More similar to the sisters, and has an offensive aspect they lack.

Suns_Champion on First deck you Built

Great discussion! Love seeing everyone's answers!

The first deck I built was a classic rookie deck.

I had a Red/Green dragon deck that I'd bought from a friend to start me off and My brother had a White/Green Zendikar intro-deck that I'd gotten him. After we decided we wanted Magic, and a lot of it, we bought a couple lots of 1000 cards from ebay(rookie mistake #1) and went to brewing.

Rookie mistake number 2: we thought lifegain was the most powerful, amazing thing ever, so my brother and and went about building an unstoppable 4-color life gain deck!!!!

It was awful.

Chalk full of amazing cards like Predator's Rapport, Pride Guardian, Soulmender, and a single Felidar Sovereign(from the intro pack)! It was a mess to be honest, but a really fun time and a good learning experience. Good times.

The first deck I really, truly brewed, researched, discussed, evolved, bought, and got to a point I was truly happy with was Bad Luck Brion. That's the one I'm proud of haha
