Whitesun's Passage Discussion

Disasterpiece on Scorched Earth

This is a tricky one, I would seriously consider splashing a third color for access to cards that fetch artifacts like Fabricate but the mana fixing becomes a serious issue. I would happily drop AEther Membrane to do this but a three color deck just sounds inherently unreliable in terms of mana.

I mainly wanted to try to build around Isochron Scepter and my thoughts other than straight burn would be Doom Blade , Geth's Verdict , Mana Leak , Angelsong , Assassin's Trophy , Bile Blight , Commencement of Festivities , Dampen Thought , Dash Hopes , Deflecting Palm , Essence Scatter , Feed the Clan , Growth Spiral , Heroes' Reunion , Increasing Vengeance , Nourish , Raise the Alarm , Redirect , Solidarity of Heroes , Turn to Frog , Twincast , Veil of Secrecy , Whitesun's Passage .

I don't know, it just seems like the scepter could be a really awesome addition to a lot of decks but you would want the scepter plus a fetch for it as well.

I’d recommend adding some Arcades, the Strategist and a playset of Overgrown Battlement

Look into getting rid of Urban Evolution (too slow), Oakenform (does nothing for you), and Whitesun's Passage (lifegain on its own is terrible, you just end up with card disadvantage) replace em all with my above recomendations, a few more walls, and maybe a single large beater for all that mana you’ll be generating.

Chaplain's Blessing is a nice life gain card. Probably better than Whitesun's Passage, unless the instant speed matters to you. I like the idea of a life gain deck, though!

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)

  1. Executioner's Swing should really be Swords to Plowshares, since you really want cheap removal, the lifegain won't really matter in the long run.

  2. I really like the Extort theme here, but since most extort creatures won't protect you from big scary opponents, I'd recommend playing Crawlspace over Marchesa's Decree since it really stops opponents from getting in hits on you.

  3. While I get that with all the tokens, Altar's Reap is like a Divination, I'd really want to see Well of Lost Dreams in here with all this lifegain you have, as it could make this deck seriously powerful. (If you do play the Well of lost dreams, I sense a Reliquary Tower in your future.

  4. To me, Blood-Cursed Knight is pretty much draft-fodder, becuase as 3 cmc you could be playing Loxodon Warhammer and just have a way to give Karlov and any other heavy hitters trample and lifegain.

  5. While yes, you can pitch your lands to make a 1/1 every turn, you could just play, I'd say this card should be swapped out for something like Aetherflux Reservoir, which can win you games. (While you are token heavy, Whip of Erebos could also be strong.

  6. I suppose that with enough tokens, Zealous Persecution would be decent, but if you were to play Authority of the Consuls or Blood Artist I think you'd have more success in the life you need to trigger other cards (I could also see Whitesun's Passage getting swapped for another card, but direct lifegain might be goof enough that it works.

  7. Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.

  8. Some other cards for your consideration are Sun Titan, Banishing Light, Vindicate, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Divinity of PrideDictate of Erebos, and Rhox Faithmender

  9. If you'd like more suggestions, just let me know buddy ;)

You can only use cards that have other mana symbols printed on the card if they are in the reminder text. (Like Charmed Pendant).

Wow, I must be blind. I thought you had Wall of Glare and not Wall of Reverence in your deck already. Derp

I'd suggest some cards like Rest for the Weary, Chaplain's Blessing, and Whitesun's Passage to help with getting your commander out early.

Ajani's Pridemate seems like it would be a natural fit here, probably over Debt to the Deathless and Felidar Sovereign. I would recommend Rest for the Weary over Whitesun's Passage. Your land count also looks a little high; 24 or 25 should be plenty. A little more discard might help against combo; Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are probably best but Duress is fine against most decks if you want to keep it budget.

Hi there! This looks like a great casual deck! I have a couple of suggestions:

If you're looking for cards to take out to make room for some of the above cards, I'd recommend starting with the Whitesun's Passages. Even in a dedicated lifegain deck, a card that does nothing but gain life isn't great. Lone Missionary and Arashin Cleric are both much better.

After that, I might turn to the Venser's Journals and Sanguine Bonds, as you already have better win conditions.

In any case, I hope you have fun with this deck!

Instead of Whitesun's Passage, I would run Blessed Alliance as they have nearly the same effect (a difference of ONE WHOLE HIT POINT), but the alliance gives you far more utility as it's a modal spell. Soul's Attendant is also a staple in the Soul Sisters archetype, so it would be worth considering. You can take a look at my deck as well if you want to see an orzhov deck tuned a bit more specifically to be powerful for modern.
