Soul's Attendant Discussion

FtonDavid on Commander 2014 Green Tweaked

Swapped out Essence Warden for Reclamation Sage for although my last game I had a bunch of artifact and enchantment hate that didn't go anywhere it is still better to have it and not need it then ... and just because a Soul's Attendant earned so much value last commander game does not mean it will survive the plethora of board wipes that normally occur so I can't count on my Essence Warden earning 25+ life.

Out of experience, Kazandu Tuskcaller is a really fragile creature. I'd try a different token-maker like Ant Queen or Nemata, Grove Guardian. Also, you should look at Essence Warden's white sisters: Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant. You could cut some of your other weaker lifegainers/damage preventers like Heroes' Reunion and/or Fog to make room. Good luck with the deck!

To answer your last question, no. This would not do well in a tournament. There are currently only two life gain decks in the current modern meta -- and both of them are fairly similar to the point I would just say they are both variations of the same deck. Soul Sisters is a deck that abuses Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Auriok Champion to amass a ton of life and very quickly make a large Ajani's Pridemate and Serra Ascendant. These decks will also often utilize Archangel of Thune to make all your sisters into massive threats. Martyr Proc aims to do the same thing -- it just does so much more explosively with cards like Martyr of Sands and Squadron Hawk. Both decks aim to gain life as a buffer and then use that buffer to fuel cards like Serra Ascendant and Ajani's Pridemate. There are also other decks that aim to gain infinite life through combos such as Kitchen Finks + Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Viscera Seer, but that feels like a different direction than you want to go.

If you are primarily worried about your opponent's creatures, spot removal is typically more effective and mana efficient than counter magic. Therefore, I might suggest cutting blue and adding either black or green. You can substitute the counter magic for things like Path to Exile, Condemn, Journey to Nowhere, Banishing Light, Fiend Hunter, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Duress, and Blackmail. You could also stay mono-white for the consistent mana base and or being able to use more colorless utility lands.

So my next question would be -- what direction do you want the deck to go? How do you want it to play? Do you want to keep you walls and try to play around that and just being a defensive deck that will eventually find an "oops I win" card? Do you like the Soul Sisters or Martyr Proc ideas? Do you want to try and mix and match a little? I can try to offer direct suggestions, but I just want to make sure I know the direction you want to go in. It is your deck afterall, and I want to make sure it is fun for you to play!

Also Soul's Attendant is slightly better than Soul Warden but I think you should just play both, honestly. (Martyr of Sands is mostly meant to combo with Serra Ascendant and is bad in a multi colored deck with artifacts.)

Also, also, don't run 4 Well of Lost Dreams, they are not in multiples, and slow functioning 4 mana cards filling you hand is not too great.

Also, also, also, these "Gain-life-but-nothing-else" cards. Elixir of Immortality, Rest for the Weary. I believe you can do better. Blessed Alliance For example. I know you see Elixir as this panic bottom, but you could play a hundred games, and that probably won't get relevant once (Especially if you play Presence of Gond were you need less pieces to win.)

I think if Crested Sunmare belongs anywhere in Modern it could be in a Soul Sisters deck.

You don't really have the support to make it worth it as Archangel of Thune would be your only way of gaining life and as such the card is too expensive to justify. To make it work you would at least have to add Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant, and maybe Lone Rider  Flip which I don't recommend doing.

Also if you really want to go that route with lifegain check out Crested Sunmare, those two cards feel like they were made for each other.
