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.

I would recommend adding Felidar Sovereign to the deck for an extra win condition for flexibility, bigger creature, and life-gain source.It also fits with your budget.

I'd maybe look for ways to lower your average converted mana cost. 4.36 is pretty high. Good luck!

I would keep in Augury Adept and replace a angel to lower mana curve, provide draw, and provide lifegain.

Sunbond would be a fun addition with all the lifegain... makes creatures huge quick, exponential lifegain and creature growth!

Instead of Ojutai's Command for the life gain I'd run Chaplain's Blessing. Also, I know he's not your deck colors but you could run like 2 tri-land and add Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Ajani Steadfast swapping them for Avacyn. Also, if you would please look at my Standard Mardu Control deck.

Sunbeam Spellbomb would help with that curve.
