Sunscorch Regent , Mowu, Loyal Companion , Simic Ascendancy (has won me many games when victory via board presence becomes impossible), Evolution Sage (couples AMAZINGLY with Fabled Passage / Evolving Wilds / Terramorphic Expanse , which also help mana fixing).

Ugin's Conjurant , or even better, Stonecoil Serpent . I might also recommend Sunscorch Regent , or even Mowu, Loyal Companion , but neither really fits the theme.

First of all, your commander is AWESOME. Second, I like the goal for low-cost (I'm currently looking at making my own decks more competitive and my wallet cries as I type). And last but not least, I love how Odric is used in this deck. He gives flying to those 4/4 tokens doesn't he? And vigilance from them to everyone else! Thats... rather terrifying actually. Kudos for thinking of that combo.

I would also like to take a moment to say that I'm not sure how casual your group is so my recommendations might not match what you're looking for (also, I don't know your normal play style). Now, for feedback!

You might want to consider swapping a plains for Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . It's a bit more expensive than other cards in your deck but I think, with such high devotion to white, it might be worth it.

I would also recommend getting a few more "Oh No" cards. That is, cards that when they come out make your opponents go "Oh No" Maybe consider Sunscorch Regent (gets really big really fast) or maybe Mikaeus, the Lunarch (helps boost all your other creatures).

Since you're playing with tokens, Twilight Drover could also be a good add or Call for Unity (tokens cause it to trigger and then it can boost your tokens and creatures to be stronger...) But really, my #1 recommendation would be to add Cathars' Crusade It triggers on tokens...

Ripwater on Killing with Karlov

I'm back cause I saw your update hahah ;-)

I see you are trying to force more lifegain triggers, I would play any other card with extort wich is not the Pontiff.... The pontiff is way to costly to put down and you basically play him for his extort trigger, the fact that he gives it to everything seems really good but often you don't have the mana to pay up...

If you look for more lifegain triggers and about the same CMC go for Patron of the Kitsune it's a 5/6 flyer (thats already better than the pontiff + it triggers on EACH attack trigger, wich will probably trigger more than the Sunscorch Regent :-)

Slap in a Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and you can cast him on instant speed if needed + the Eight Tales is completely underrate, protecting ALL your permanents for only 3 mana and the ability to make Karlov unblockable...

And now that we are on the subject of unblockable/protection, Mother of Runes and the new Giver of Runes are an absolute auto include in your deck. Eight-tales and Mother did soooo much work and basically protected karlov on instant speed from spot removal and on the offense make him unblockable if they play the right color combo. Now that you als get the Giver of Runes it's even better. Trust me on this one, it will make your life so much easier! Nothing sucks more than when your fat Karlov get's nuked down, and turn 1 mother of runes, turn 2 karlov is most of the time GG for at least 1 player at the table.

Another absolute powerhouse in my deck was Ajani, Caller of the Pride at only 3 mana he often hit my board around turn 3/4 where Karlov was already 6/6, it's really not that hard if you have a turn one Soul Warden and then suddenly Karlov is a 6/6 flying doublestrike in turn 3, needless to say you often removed 1 opponent around turn 4-5 :)

As usual really hope this tips will help you a bit more!

you may be better off pretending its a mono-white deck with Khorvath Brightflame at the helm. Which isnt that far off from the list -the few bulk dragons.

It may be tedious, but adding lands will help immensely, both from a "commander decks with partner have a 98 card deck" stance, but also help you tune the manabase to fit your curve and deckoverall.

budget knights like Benalish Marshal , Kabira Vindicator , Lightwielder Paladin , Riftmarked Knight , and Valiant Knight may be taking a look at, as are some less budget like Knight Exemplar or Kinsbaile Cavalier

if you are interested in more dragons, Ancestor Dragon , Scalelord Reckoner , Sunscorch Regent , Dream Pillager , Moltensteel Dragon and Tyrant's Familiar may be a good starting point.

i would also consider cards like Sigiled Sword of Valeron , Gideon's Phalanx , Militant Angel , Waylay or cards like Changeling Hero

that all being said, best of luck in completing the deck .... i may have to built a KNIGHT deck now (with a dragon commander)

KibaAlpha on Reyhan and Ishai's Counterattack

I've been looking at that card for the last 5 days vs. what it shuts down in my deck. I'm at the point now of just convincing myself it's worth it which I know it is. What it would shut down within my playgroup is.....beautiful.

The downside is the cards of mine it shuts off and what cards I could replace those with.

As good as it is I also have to look at how it affects Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker , Managorger Hydra and Sunscorch Regent as they won't be growing as large or as quickly now.

I wonder if adding Void Winnower is worth it if I go that route.

I'm assuming you:

Route 1) Stength Draw with Worse Creature Tempo

Cut cards that are good tempo plays but otherwise don't help you win by drawing cards. The idea is that you draw into Approach of the Second Sun , cast it, and then trigger your draw abilities to be able to cast it again very quickly. I assume this deck isn't trying to be super competitive. I added a little recursion for toolbox, while still being group hug.

Cut

Add

Side Note: I really don't like Sunscorch Regent but I get why he's in the deck as part of a wincon. I just feel Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal are very similar and provide much more to the deck in an obvious way, but they cost $8 as a pair so I didn't want to formally recommend them.

Have Simic Ascendancy , cast Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal , draw 5 cards with in game triggers which puts 10 on toothy which puts 20 on Simic Ascendancy .

Nice reply, and i agree with most of what you’ve said. I’m also someone who would rather brew than netdeck. I think a lot of my “lifegain” gripes come from introducing players to magic and seeing them overvaluing the mechanic, leading to a long line of “bad decks” until they work out that life totals don’t represent who’s ahead.

You mention my vagueness in suggestions thus far, and i do agree - i’ve been waiting to hear from EpoH to see what they actually want this deck to do.

If i were to make an actual suggestion of deck changes, it’s be:

-4 Felidar Sovereign

-1 Serra Avatar

-4 Soulmender

-2 Elixir of Immortality

-4 Sunbeam Spellbomb

-2 Rest for the Weary

-4 Chaplain's Blessing

-2 Sunspring Expedition

+2 Aerial Responder

+4 Oblivion Ring

+4 Serene Steward

+3 Sunscorch Regent

+3 Syndic of Tithes

+4 Soul Warden

+2 Murder Investigation

+1 Plains

This removes a lot of the “pointless” lifegain cards, while still offering a lot of life for the Pridemate. It lets you actually interact with your opponent (the Ring), and Murder Investigations help you safeguard a bulky Pridemate. But this would make a completely different deck, and might not be what EpoH is after (hence my hesitation to suggest anything)
