Hey, you should totally run Sunbond in your deck!!! Not only is this card amazing for lifegain decks, but with your Wall of Reverence you will be able to double that creatures power every turn and gain lots of life!

Here are some ideas in Abzan colors that don't use the graveyard. I don't know how useful they would be in your deck, but here they are:

  1. Spike Feeder + Archangel of Thune / Sunbond = Infinite life and an / Spike Feeder
  2. Midnight Guard + Presence of Gond = Infinite tokens
  3. Conspiracy + Turntimber Ranger = Infinite tokens
  4. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Soul Warden / Essence Warden = Infinite Life
  5. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Cathars' Crusade = Infinite +1/+1 counters
  6. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Death Match = Board wipe that gets around indestructible
  7. Conspiracy + Restoration Angel + Genesis Chamber = Infinite Tokens
  8. Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Vizkopa Guildmage = Drain the board
  9. Tainted Remedy + Beacon of Immortality = Kill target opponent

Like I said, I don't know how many of these will be relevant in your deck, but they're some ideas.

Spike Feeder alows you to go infinite with Sunbond . Maybe you could find some room?

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

Hi SynergyBuild,

Thanks, that's what I'm going for, kind of. Right now though I have Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder which does a similar task with only 2 cards (no cats SpikeFeeder + Sunbond could do it too). I'm trying to find a combo that wins (with "some" cat components similar to what you mentioned), but having infinite life in commander often doesn't matter. Need an enabler like an Aetherflux Reservoir or Felidar Sovereign though to make it useful. Or some way to spend life for mana?

Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel + Aura Shards is also nice though.

Something like Cryptolith Rite + Leonin Battlemage + Oketra's Monument + Whitemane Lion | Infinite 1/1 Warrior Tokens (without haste yuck!). Something that can win but much less janky and not so many pieces. Some way to output a win directly.

The Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder makes the Archangel of Thune or any other creature I control as big as I want with +1 counters.

suggest you look at two enchantments, one old and one new: Sunbond is amazing in lifegain decks and gives Licia the occasional 1-hit commander damage win; Font of Agonies is just great in decks where you're paying life.

Ordeal of Heliod , Ordeal of Thassa , Together Forever , and Triumph of Gerrard are all cheap enchantments that can give you multiple +1/+1 counters. The combo of Ordeal of Heliod and Sunbond is always fun if you can pull it off.

As a general rule you need around 50 mana sources in a deck in the form of lands, ramp, mana rocks or Llanowar Elves type dorks. Since I counted 38 total in your deck, I'm worried about mana screw same as Nesmer2. I have an artifact deck with 33 lands but that one runs 10+ low-costed mana rocks which are missing here. Granted there are decks with even lower lands but those are cEDH yolo lists that aim to T1/2/3 win with combos and also run stuff like Mana Crypt , Mana Vault etc.

The PW deck Dovin is somewhat OK but very overcosted. Personally I don't like Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality and Disenchant . For the last one I prefer Return to Dust , but you can run stuff like Vindicate , Anguished Unmaking or Utter End (those can upgrade the Mortify too).

Since you are running quite a few creatures Whip of Erebos would be nice synergy with lifegain and it also offers some form of reccursion, albeit one-time use.

Duskmantle Seer can be replaced with Twilight Prophet as with the latter they still lose life, but you gain life and only you get an extra card.

Lastly I'd recommend a few personal favourites Torment of Hailfire , Boseiju, Who Shelters All and Sensei's Divining Top .

Hope these suggestings are useful to you, mate. Cheers!
