Squadron Hawk Discussion
4 days ago
I switched out Meddling Mage for Squadron Hawk to up the speed of the deck but not the cmc. I took Reflector Mage out for Kitchen Finks from the original SaffronOlive build because I think Finks is strictly better especially with the Resto Angel interaction.

HELP FINDING A WINCON!!!
I was play testing it a little and after 4 games, on the 4th game, I had 92 life on Turn 6 with a hand full of Squadron Hawks and Legion Conquistadors. Still no way to win except attacking though. Please help

Seems a nice deck, but I would like to make some sugestions.
First of all I'd change the format (divide cards for type: land, creatures, ecc, instead of white and non-white)
Then, why not things like Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Martyr of Sands, Serra Ascendant, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Oblivion Ring, Ranger of Eos, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Worship, Flickerwisp, Aven Mindcensor, Squadron Hawk
Last thing, you definitely need a sideboard. Some suggestions could be: Stony Silence, Leyline of Sanctity, Rest in Peace, Kataki, War's Wage, Kor Firewalker, Brave the Elements, Disenchant, Proclamation of Rebirth

Looks like a solid foundation for a Martyr Proc or Soul Sisters style deck, which is among the more legitimately competitive lifegain decks. That deck uses Proclamation of Rebirth to recur Serra Ascendant and Martyr of Sands, and Ranger of Eos and Squadron Hawk to keep cards in hand for those massive heals.
Core Set 2019 brought Resplendent Angel, which seems like a solid inclusion in any deck that gains a lot of life. If you include her, maybe Shalai, Voice of Plenty as protection and Lyra Dawnbringer to buff your new angels and give them lifelink? If not, Angel of Invention has lifelink, buffs all your creatures, and puts some 2/2 Servo bodies on the battlefield.
As a dedicated lifegain deck, you actually have a ton of options.

I don't like Honor of the Pure. It's very awkward on its own and I don't think it provides enough of an impact early or late game. In it's place I'd put Squadron Hawks and a Mistveil Plains for card advantage, Thalia, Guardian of Thrabens for early disruption, or 2 removal spells like Oust, Condemn or Path to Exile and 2 other spells. Also, an Entreat the Angels or two would be spicy.

Haven't gotten to play my version in paper yet, but this one looks a lot more aggressive than normal Martyr Proc decks, and I think the control aspect of traditional lists is the decks biggest strength. Many decks in modern fold to creature removal, and what are the most popular cards in modern? 1.) Lightning Bolt, 2.) Path to Exile, 3.) Snapcaster Mage, ect. Except most creature decks in modern aren't trying to combo (Trigger effects off lifegain) at the same time. I was stoked to see Resplendent Angel printed too, however I think it's more of a 1-2 of that can tick up the clock in the extremely grindy games the deck is known for. Let me know if this aggressive version does anything for you. Im going to stick with my Squadron Hawk and Ranger of Eos and Wrath of God and Ghostly Prisons.

Hey, my priority right now is acquiring the K-commands and Blood moons so please start there. I would be interested in the other cards that you have matches for if I was comfortable with what you were wanting for them. My next list of priority cards would be Unburial Rites, Expedition Map, Oblivion Stone, Restoration Angel, Sylvan Scrying, Squadron Hawk, and Bloodbraid Elf. I already have the x2 Blooming Marshes I needed for a deck, but I may be interested in x2 more to have a play set. The marshes would be the lowest priority of the second lists of cards. My binder is updated on the correct quantities of cards that I would be interested in. As for the rest of the cards, the only card that I did NOT need was the Merciless Eviction. All the others we could use a filler cards to make the numbers match.

10 lands is less than half of what you need. Yes, there are 3 signets in your deck. No, they are not enough either.
Also, what I meant was that perhaps it would be easier to adapt the martyrproc shell, to life-gain-wincons. Martyrproc wins by gaining life, and holding on until the constant card advantage from Proclamation of Rebirth ends the game.
Your current build will most likely beat burn, but not much else. You don't really stop an opponent from building card advantage against you. Many games will be you popping life-gain after lifegain, against an opponent who plays bigger and bigger threats, and you'll be lacking mana like crazy (to curve directly to 5, you need 26 mana sources or something like that).
I think you should find something more reliable to gain life, other than random creatures. Auriok Salvagers and Sunbeam Spellbomb could do, but other ways of getting the spellbomb back would also work. The spellbomb could be replaced by other cheap artifacts - perhaps you're on to something with the Scroll of Avacyn. Martyr of Sands and Proclamation of Rebirth is an option, but is better when you have some way of filling your hand with white cards (hello Squadron Hawk). Yet another option is Isochron Scepter and a lifegaining instant (I like this idea, since you can play sweepers in the early game without losing much).
