Tainted Sigil Discussion

Good Start here. I also built an orzhov lifegain deck early on when getting into EDH.

Some cards I'd rec:Rhox Faithmender, Wall of Limbs, Beacon of Immortality, Crypt Incursion, Boon Reflection, Celestial Mantle, One Thousand Lashes, Pillory of the Sleepless, Tainted Sigil, Chalice of Life  Flip, Marble Chalice,

Planeswalkers:Ajani Goldmane, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Sorin, Solemn Visitor.

I used Karlov of the Ghost Council instead of Obzedat. He's a ton of fun to play with. If you want to see my deck: Soul Shakedown Party

Tainted Sigil may be of some use?

First these are just suggestions.

Get rid of Defiant Bloodlord and replace with Sanguine Bond and/or Vizkopa Guildmage

Get rid of Divine Favor and Ethereal Armor they only give you buff no counters to help with Abzan Battle Priest if you want first strike use Archetype of Courage and for a buff just use Honor of the Pure

In order to set off these "When you gain life" effects you want to gain life multiple times not just bunch at once

with the number of creatures you have you should have Soul Warden in hear maybe even Soul's Attendant and Nyx-Fleece Ram

with that add Ajani's Pridemate and Spectral Procession and you can even put in Serene Steward

I also recommend Either Children of Korlis (low cost) Or Tainted Sigil for whenever you take a big hit and pair them with Sanguine Bond maybe 2 of each that way when you gain life the first time you can sac the Tainted Sigil and gain the life your opponent lost and then double up on damage. you can put those in for the Healing Salve

Mortify gives you enchantments for the same cost as unmake

It will make the price go up a bit but a Serra Ascendant is pretty great

Isolated Chapel could be added too

Tainted Sigil works real well with Aetherflux Reservoir and Key to the City works real well with Silas Renn, Seeker Adept. Just some thoughts.

Tainted Sigil and Vizkopa Guildmage result in some seriously huge drain

Sydri, Galvanic Genius would do some neat tricks here. For 3 Mana, you can machine gun the hell out of someone with your Aetherflux Reservoir, or you can make Chalice of Death even more annoying. Tainted Sigil would be a nasty/janky addition, as well. Just some neat budget options for upgrades.

Actually, I dont know. You've got a pretty good thing going with the control from Despise, Lost Legacy, and Castigate. I wouldn't wanna take any of those out.

Read the Bones isn't super awesome, but the ability to scry 2 cards before you draw 2 will probably be good, considering this deck is kinda high risk, high reward. But that's just me. If you feel like it doesn't work so well, scrap it.

Beacon of Immortality is good, but not needed anymore in this deck. With 4 Tainted Sigil, and 4 Children of Korlis, I think you'll be alright. Plus its a little expensive. Sure, it works great with Tainted Remedy, but for . That's pretty expensive.

Alms Beast is great, but useless without Tainted Remedy. That's something to thing about.
