This started out as a casual life gain deck. Now I am interested in improvements; under somewhat of a budget; trying to keep it Modern legal. :-)

The goal here is to gain as much life as possible and given the right draws and starting hand, it can happen quickly. I like to get Ajani's Pridemate and Nyx-Fleece Ram out ideally by turn 3 to form an early threat. From there it's all about getting decent draws for defense with cards like Blessed Reversal and Chastise. I have put things like Mass Calcify and Stasis Snare in my side board to cover my back in case I am losing life too quickly.

I typically like to have a few defense cards and even offense cards, so I wouldn't say there is 1 set play tactic that I use.

I'd like to improve on the name of this deck.
