Squadron Hawk Discussion

In a deck with Lingering Souls and Pack Rat I would prefer to play Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Also, Squadron Hawk is a nice source of card advantage to fuel more Rats and maybe Collective Brutality as well. Asylum Visitor could work too, since it has Madness, you can pitch it to either Pack Rat or Collective Brutality and still be able to cast it.

Your deck is already really close to Soul Sisters. As a matter of fact, you have most of the cards for it already.

Here's a few examples and links of the deck:

White/Black Soul Sisters
White/Red Soul Sisters
Mono-White Soul Sisters by Louis Torres 8th. Place Finish
Mono-White by Derek Meyers 3rd. Place Finish
List of Soul Sisters decks on MtG Goldfish
List of Soul Sisters Decks on MtG Top 8

The only card I think you're missing is Serra Ascendant. A lot of people use Squadron Hawk, but I'm more of a fan of Lone Rider  Flip because it's a faster clock.

I'd also suggest a second color.

Black gives Lingering Souls, Zealous Persecution, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Vault of the Archangel, Thoughtseize, and Inquisition of Kozilek.

Green gives Gavony Township (really powerful when combined with Kitchen Finks), Essence Warden, Obstinate Baloth, and Scavenging Ooze.

Red gives Lightning Helix, Lightning Bolt, Boros Charm, Blood Moon, and Norin the Wary.

The thing you'll find about these types of decks is how much easier it is to use the life gain to pump up your team. You don't need Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign when you can just beat people's faces in with It That Rides as One  Flip, Serra Ascendant, and Ajani's Pridemate!

Agreed, If you put Martyr of Sands in, then you would have to put Squadron Hawk and if you did that, you would need Honor of the Pure... now you have a completely different deck.

Instead here try this card people have not seen the power of.

Collective Effort currently in standard its mostly useless. However this is modern and you are playing Counters, Check. Its also gives removal with the same spell making it not just a junk counter card. The Enchantment removal will be doubtfully useful most of the time but you never know.

I would drop Loxodon Warhammer it's just pricey. Rest for the Weary is a great life-gain card, that provides massive life-gain. Ajani's Mantra is also worth a look. I would also drop Martyr of Sands and Squadron Hawk, one is slow and the other doesn't really fit. With that space we can add some more reliable win conditions. Firstly there is Felidar Guardian and then there is Aetherflux Reservoir (if you use this also use Rhox Faithmender. If you take the the deck to Orzhov then you can use the Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo and you gain access to cards like Karlov of the Ghost Council, Obzedat, Ghost Council, and Divinity of Pride.

Thinning your deck is such a yugioh thing lol, might as well play Squadron Hawk and Manamorphose if thinning mattered that much.

Nice take on sisters

cards worth considering:

Ranger of Eos

Serra Ascendant

Squadron Hawk

Martyr of Sands is not so great alone in a deck that isn't monowhite, but it would help if you had 4 Squadron Hawk. Other than that I'd add an Ajani's Pridemate and remove a Divinity of Pride.

Lands look fine, but there could be space for 1 or 2 Shambling Vents.

the only card, I'm really sure shouldn't be there, is Vampire Nighthawk. It's lightning bolt range, and doesn't do anything for your lifegain plan until it can attack. Maybe they should be Raise the Alarm?
