Souls of the Faultless Discussion

Souls of the Faultless would be good here. Maybe even add a Sorin Planeswalker. Other than that Awesome deck!:)

Your deck seems really inconsistent, I'm not sure why you aren't running 4x of any card. You can also only have 15 cards in your sideboard and should be aiming for 60 in your deck. That being said there are some fairly quick improvements that can be made by substituting some cards.

  1. 4x Victim of Night replaces Doom Blade and Murder there are too many black creatures that appear in decks which you will want to kill.

  2. 4x Zealous Persecution replaces Gallantry, Vendetta, Crystal Ball and Prophetic Prism boost your creatures and reduce your opponents.

  3. 4x Souls of the Faultless replaces Kytheon's Irregulars, War Oracle, Crypt Ghast and Languish your opponent won't want to use removal on it, but also won't want to attack into it.

  4. 3x Chalice of Life  Flip replaces Implement of Improvement this works with your lifegain plan.

  5. 4x Ajani's Pridemate replaces Bloodbond Vampire, Graveblade Marauder and Rancid Rats the Pridemate has the same ability as Bloodbond but can be played 2 turns earlier.

  6. 4x Perimeter Captain replaces Topplegeist and Planar Cleansing works with lifegain also Planar Cleansing is just too expensive to cast and you likely don't want to clear the board.

Thats me, hope this is of help.

Also, I'm considering playing two copies of Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and two copies of Souls of the Faultless in my version. Of course, mine is white/black and not Abzan like yours, so it might be harder cutting things for them, but I'll suggest them nonetheless.

Yeah, thats a decent one, I considered that and Souls of the Faultless for a less, eldrazi driven, less etb effect related version of the deck. (If someone wants to play that, then they should definitely play 2 copies of the Alms Beast.

Aw man, I should have known you were actively avoiding playsets :p cool challenge, dude!

This looks like it can screw over a lot of people ;)

I'd recommend Steel of the Godhead, Edge of the Divinity, Ghostly Prison, and perhaps Sphere of Safety. i'm a real sucker for enchantments, so I could keep on going ;)

Also: Wall of Souls+Valor Made Real is epic! You could also use Souls of the Faultless.

To make as clear as possible, if the Primordial Hydra was a 14/14, you would take 10 damage and lose the game, after Souls of the Faultless' ability triggered, but before the trigger was put on the stack (and long before the trigger would resolve).

Alternatively, if the Primordial Hydra was a 14/14 and you blocked with a Abzan Guide you would take 10 damage and gain 4 life, leaving you at 4 life without having to worry about anything triggering or having to use the stack.

If the Primordial Hydra had first strike and a lifelink blocker did not, you would lose the 10 life before gaining any life and would still lose. If the blocker had first strike and the hydra did not, you would gain the life before even taking the damage, and end up in a similar situation to the first lifelink example where you did not lose.

If you had survived, it would be only 4 life gained. When a creature has trample, it only needs to assign lethal damage to any blocking creatures, which in this case would be only 4 damage with the rest of the 26 coming at you.

You will be dead before the triggered ability from Souls of the Faultless goes on the stack.

Say a 30/30 Primordial Hydra is attacking. I have 10 life and block with a 0/4 Souls of the Faultless. Do I die before gaining 30 (or is it just 4) life?
