Athreos is not usually a life gain sort of commander, but its your deck. Here are some cheap suggestions for life gain sort of things:

Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo (exquisite is expensive)

Killing Wave this is a very interesting card. only really good in Athreos, as they have to lose life to keep what they want then potentially lose more to keep your creatures in the grave.

Vizkopa Guildmage

Felidar Sovereign good meme

Divinity of Pride

Debt to the Deathless

Authority of the Consuls

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant or Suture Priest

Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat

Sorin, Grim Nemesis

all of these are solid options

as for expensive cards ill only say 2:

Archangel of Thune

Serra Ascendant

Karlov of the Ghost Council isn't modern legal.

Dark Confidant is the card you're looking for.

Cut Cliffhaven Vampire, Darien, King of Kjeldor and Elenda, the Dusk Rose. there is no place in this deck for those cards.

Path to Exile is missing and should be an automatic 4 of.

Auriok Champion and Ajani's Pridemate are worth including.

Suture Priest is acceptable.

Also Soul Warden and Suture Priest would probably help too

Great idea! What about having a Suture Priest out when you give your opponents some hippos? :)

Thanks for the comment shadow63!

Just edited her out in favor of Suture Priest. Deck already has a super low mana curve. Suture Priest gives me the same effect, and an extra for 1 more mana.

Thanks, DasButch

So I had to think about something. My story didn't quite add up. Here's how it went down:

Opponent A was running 5C Dragons. It was mostly Green. He was using those Tarkir Dragons with Morph and using lands that can tap for multiple colors to get them out. About 80% of his deck was green, but he maximized the Morphing ability with different colors of Dragons, allowing each one to grow bigger every time he turned it face up. This is how he was able to cast Sleep - he ran 5 colors.

My other opponent used White Weenies first. I ended up getting out a Suture Priest on T2, which really pissed him off. He was unable to play his token-making spells because he would run the risk of dying in the process. He ended up losing rather quickly, so he switched decks the 2nd game.

In the 2nd game, he ran some sort of control-burn thing. I don't really recall what it was, but he kept slinging spells at me and I would just shrug them off.

The turn in which they dealt 140+ damage in a single turn, I got a full-on assault by the Dragons, who had multiple +1/+1 counters on them by this time. It rotated to my opponent, who hit me for as much as he could. I really wish I could remember what that deck was that he was using, but I just can't recall. Sorry. :/

So my story was actually stemming from 2 games, not 1. My bad. This was several years ago, so yeah :/

SteelZephyr, may I ask what Masterpieces you got?

I don't have the ability to turn this into a card because it'd be way too insane, but I've got a story for you.

I was once in a 3v3 Modern matchup. I was using Selesnay Aggro Tokens, my opponent was using Midrange Dragons, and my other opponent was using White Weenies.

It was a long game. We all kept stalling because we were afraid to attack one another. The Dragon player was not hitting his cards in the correct order, so he wasn't getting anything out. As for me and my other opponent, we kept amassing tokens about the same rate.

Well, I had out cards such as Suture Priest, and plentiful amounts of draw. I also ran cards such as Jeskai Barricade and Avenger of Zendikar. What this meant was, I could blink Avenger because I could pay the cost of both Barricade and Avenger each turn. This gave me an ever-increasing population of tokens, which I would Second Harvest into just an insane amount of even more. Likewise, if Avenger was not on the field and I had the mana via Cryptolith Rite, I could literally just blink two Jeskai Barricade against each other. I also ran Oblivion Sower, which was really beginning to piss everyone off.

I was eventually at 180+ life. My opponent running Dragons was splashing other colors for sideboard trickery, and he hit my entire board with Sleep. Everything tapped out and he swung for a fair amount of damage. My other opponent then proceeded to beat me down as well. All told, I took 140+ damage before it got back to me.

So, I just started blinking my guys again using more tricks and playing a second copy of Avenger and ended up getting 100+ life right back.

I did eventually lose, not because I wasn't large enough to win - oh no I definitely was. I was just having so much darn fun that I wanted to see how long I could make the game last. Eventually I ran out of spells to keep me afloat.

But one of the spells that kept me going was a playset of Dawnglow Infusion, which REALLY fueled their rage toward me.

So there, that's my story :3 Idk how to make that into a card...
