Put three 1/1 white Spirit creature tokens with flying into play.
Spectral Procession Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hey, there's a mono white archetype in Modern called Soul Sisters. What you have here is a twist on that strategy.
The Sisters are Martyr of Sands , Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden . These are the repeatable life gaining sources to give you a consistent source of life gain and a consistent play turn one. Martyr is a fast way to gain life to activate Serra Ascendant or pump Ajani's Pridemate . Ascendant is by far your best threat to win a game and reason to want to gain life; Martyr can get you to 30+ life fast.
Squadron Hawk is a good two drop with this strategy giving you four potential creatures to gain life with and it has flying. Hawk is like draw putting up to three cards into your hand which is good with Martyr to have a better opportunity to gain life with her since you will have more white cards in your hand. I also like the interaction of Martyr and Lone Rider Flip as a way to gain three or more life for one mana.
Flying is the best evasion you can give the rest of your attacking creatures with Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he does seem good with Ajani's Pridemate , but I think 4x Odric is too much. Odric as a four drop isn't good by himself, he requires other creatures to be good to use his combat trigger. You only want to cast Odric if you have an established battlefield of creatures to get his combat trigger and having a flier helps too.
Hawk seems better here than Aerial Responder since Hawk fills your hand with creatures and it also has flying. Tokens are good with the Sisters; Spectral Procession is three flying Spirits for three mana. Procession with a Warden or Attendant on the battlefield can pump Pridemate at least three times. For three mana Procession seems more impactful than Ritual of Rejuvenation . 4x Ritual, 4x Revitalize and 2x Reviving Dose seems too many cards for this effect and Revitalize is better than the others. Gaining life and drawing is important, but creatures are more important.
Cards to consider adding:
- 4x Martyr of Sands
- 3x Soul's Attendant
- 4x Squadron Hawk
- 3x Spectral Procession
- 1x more Secluded Steppe
Cards to consider cutting:
- 4x Ritual of Rejuvenation
- 2x Reviving Dose
- 4x Aerial Responder
- 3x Auriok Champion
- 1x Odric, Lunarch Marshal
- 1x Lone Rider
Attendant being a one drop I think is better than the color protections of Champion who is a two drop and both have the same repeatable life gain ability. Champion could be a sideboard card, but not sure you even need him. Champion and gaining life is great hate against mono red and burn, but the strategy here is gaining life even without Champion. Good luck with your deck.

I love a good spirit deck. You could improve your curve a bit by removing some 2-drops and adding in a playset of Spectral Procession . Celestial Crusader is another good budget card for spirt decks (especially since most of your creatures are white). Finally, I'm not sure if it fits the theme as well, but for card draw I'd prefer Winged Words over Take Inventory .

I don't know who you play against, how it goes, or how the deck really performs so I can't really say. My initial thoughts point at
Raise the Alarm
I also noticed Costly Plunder as something I'd replace but specifically for its place I'd put in a Necropotence . For the creatures I suggested Imperious Oligarch , Seraph of the Scales , Doomed Traveler and whatnot are things I immediately notice. Karlov isn't guaranteed to be out. Afterlife is nice and all but it only goes so far when you could get something else like control out of those three I mentioned. I don't know how well afterlife pays off for you though, I haven't messed with it in my EDH yet. More tokens are always nice but I feel like there are better options than most afterlife creatures. I was hoping for better afterlife from Ravnica Allegiance.

Does Ghave, Guru of Spores have a "specific deck type, as in is he better as a combo oriented deck or straight out mid range ish token style deck? Or both?
I ask because I appearently have a copy of him, and I used to play black white tokens in modern back around 2015( obviously meta is way different now). Is ghave geared toward generic token generation, a few planes walkers, and anthem affects, or is he "better" as a sacrifice combo deck?
Imput please. I have cards laying around from modern and standard back then like... Spectral Procession , Lingering Souls , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Bitterblossom Sorin, Lord of Innistrad etc etc to name a few. I also understand cards like Grave Pact are good with him.

To get to 22 lands I'd agree with you that Spectral Procession would be the thing to cut.... there is some neat new stuff in M20 to add to the soul sisters toolbox like Angel of Vitality as well for you to look forward to.

Hey gang, I have recently rebuild my Modern Soul Sisters deck. I included 2x Proclamation of Rebirth and cut an Oblivion Ring and an Emeria, The Sky Ruin for it. However I'd like to go back to 22 lands so I'd like some advice on what to cut for it. Maybe a Path to Exile or one of the Spectral Procession ? Furthermore I built a sideboard for the deck and would love to know how you like it and what you would change.
It's only meant to be played ad FNMs and maybe smaller tournaments, but I'm very well aware of the fact that there are much more powerful decks in the format and meta but that's okay for me :) I'm thankful for help! Regards, Kev

The biggest problem I can see is that you don't have enough lands. In my experience, Martyr Proc works better on 22-24. 19 is Burn territory. I would cut Force of Virtue to make room since you don't really need it. As a Martyr Proc deck, you should be able to afford to durdle for several turns after gaining life, thus there is no need to pump your creatures and win faster since you have the ability to attack and pass the turn without dying.
Next is that you need to have the fourth Martyr of Sands . It's the centerpiece of the deck, being that it's the deck's fastest and most consistent win-con enabler; you want it every game.
I also question the need for Oketra's Monument . I get that it's there to help supplement the soul sisters and Ajani, but something that creates value immediately like Spectral Procession is more valuable in my opinion. Though my bigger beef with it is that it takes up spaces that you could use for better cards like the fourth Martyr, more Ranger-Captain of Eos , and Giver of Runes (all of which I consider to be better for the deck than Oketra's Monument). That said, I don't think it's horrible, but if you end up cutting Force of Virtue (which I would) it would be best to play less Monument or just cut it completely and add any of the three cards I just mentioned.
