Dredgar on Life Gain Beta

It looks like it's heading in the right direction. Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant are great. If you need some ideas give my deck a look Got the life!

MrHighscore on Karlovation - Taxation is extortion

1 week ago

Thank you all for the feedback and apoligies for the late response. Lately I've been taking a break from brewing EDH decks, so I'm not visiting TO very frequently.


All good suggestions, But I don't really see what I should take out. In general I'm not running very high on life, so I don't think I can make use of the abilities, and most of the time I would not have mana for Well of Lost Dreams.


My meta has all kinds of decks. Some people got T1 and others (few) play OTC commander decks. Most decks are T2 or T3 trying not to combo out in turn 4 or 5. I build this deck because I like extort and drain, but it has been far more powerfull and fun than I anticipated, at least in my meta.




  • Flickering Ward is a great suggestion. I'll see what I can doo to find it a slot.


I'm not updating the deck right now (as I like to keep it in sync with the paper version), but I want to make room for these cards (all very low casting cost except for Merchant):

I'll update the maybeboard accordingly.

Firebones675 on Win by gaining life!!

Don't worry, lifegain decks are viable. There's a semipopular modern deck called soul sisters that gains a lot of life off of cards like Soul Warden& Soul's Attendant, then bashing dace with Ajani's Pridemate & Serra Ascendant. Might be worth looking at a couple of those decks if you want a faster clock. (I'll throw a link at the end of this)

If you want to win with Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance, you should put more copies of them in your deck. Currently you only ave 1 of the former and none of the latter.

Two more super efficient ways to gain life are Rest for the Weary and Martyr of Sands. They likely have a home here. Hope this helps!

Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant and Ajani's Pridemate all seem like they could fit in quite well here

Some cards like Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign, Karlov of the Ghost Council, and Chalice of Life  Flip work great in a deck that has good, consistent life gain. I don't think you have enough other cards to support that theme, I would either cut them or add something to support that theme if that's the direction you want to go. If you do want life gain try Pristine Talisman, Auriok Champion or her budget sisters Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant, Brutal Hordechief (think he's great in your deck even if you don't go life gain), Whip of Erebos, Blood Artist, and Aetherflux Reservoir to name a few.

Also don't like Beseech the Queen in a tri-color deck, even if you got a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. I would definitely pay the extra mana for the budget Diabolic Tutor or if you have the cash Demonic Tutor.

Would also replace a Mountain with a Terramorphic Expanse for better color consistency.

You've got a lot of token generators along with reanimating stuff, I think Cathars' Crusade would work great with this.

Love Odric, Lunarch Marshal in this deck, you might want to add Odric, Master Tactician as a win condition.

Please don't replace Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath with Ob Nixilis Reignited. The former is an amazing card for EDH and the latter has no place in the format really. Yosei is definitely amazing and is my favorite white card and my favorite dragon. He is one of the main wincons in my Visk Kal EDH deck that has a bit of a token sub theme you can see here if you're interested Vish Kal, I am the Sword in the Darkness. If you really want to do the token strategy I'd consider Plague of Vermin (especially combined with Soul Warden or Soul's Attendant), Field of Souls, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Ogre Slumlord, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Bitterblossom, and maybe even Blade of Selves. Best of luck.
