Whitesun's Passage Discussion
4 months ago
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.

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.

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)
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.
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.
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.
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.
Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.
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).

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:
- Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant are great repeatable sources of lifegain.
- Ajani's Pridemate makes an excellent win condition.
- Arashin Cleric is an good backup Lone Missionary.
- You might need to get rid of some of your opponents' creatures, so it might be a good idea to consider something like Path to Exile, Condemn, Oust, or Swords to Plowshares.
- Your mana looks a little bit off, I'd take out 3 Swamp and replace them with 3 Plains.
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.
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.
