It playtests very well. The only suggestions I may make is to consider Pristine Talisman . But I understand that it may be hard to make room for that artifact. +1 from me.

dcarpntr: I considered adding Pristine Talisman , but given the mana curve, I don't really need the extra mana production, and Chalice of Life Flip Flip already taps to gain one life so it serves the same function. Thanks for your suggestion though.
January 16, 2012 8:14 p.m.
Definitely you need to run Kabira Crossroads . I love Modern :)
January 18, 2012 5:09 p.m.
The additional lifegain would be helpful, but I'm worried Kabira Crossroads will slow the deck down. I'll run some playtests and see. Thanks for the suggestion.
January 18, 2012 6 p.m.
I have played with Kabira Crossroads for a while and unless you need another land right now to play something to win the game it has no effect at all. You can play it once you have an opening in the curve.

Given the number of artifacts, if I put in removal I may go for Dispatch over Path to Exile. And you have a point about Sun Titan, but right now it's the main alt-win condition in case the lifegain doesn't pan out. Although I might just have to put in Ajani's Pridemate given how awesome it is with Sun Droplet. Thanks for your suggestions!
January 20, 2012 6:39 p.m.
Something else you could run in place of Ajani's Pridemate could be a couple of Ajani Goldmane. His lifegain ability and avatar would work great with your deck theme. And I agree with the previous statement about definitely making room for one or two Kabira Crossroads.

Ok guys, I made a major update to the deck. Thanks a lot for your suggestions, it seems to run even better in playtest now. I took almost all the suggestions, except I ended up putting Oblivion Ring in instead of Dispatch because I wasn't getting metalcraft that often and I wanted to be able to deal with noncreature permanent threats as well. Let me know what you think!
January 22, 2012 5:46 a.m.
AWESOME! i love the idea of the deck. +1 from me. check out my mega lifegain deck if you have any free time. thanks :)

Chalice of White That was may adaption of a chalice deck. I however, took the standard root when making it. Given that, it's a little different than yours, but you still might be able to get some ideas for yours. The alt win-con is in damage so I added the I can use him to get it back, as well as my Porcelain Legionnaire, Mimic Vat, Ratchet Bomb (for token decks), and Oblivion Ring (if they get out something I can't blow up). 4 Day of Judgments, 2 Gideon Juras, and 3 Oblivion Rings for board control. Timely Reinforcements for chump blockers and a quick life gain if played after allowing them to hit me for 1 point of damage. The instants are all life gain. The Norn's Annex are nice against agro as well.

I'll side it in for dealing with aggro, but in general it would slow down the deck to replace 4 1-drops with 4 2-drops. Also makes for less life gain. Thanks for your suggestion.
February 17, 2012 12:39 a.m.
Nice deck! And yes, I had a look at yours by your request on my deck, haha.
A playset of Rest for the Weary may be risky, as it could be a dead draw at times. I would suggest dropping to 2 or 3.
Survival Cache may or may not be right for you, but its a good card - 3 mana to gain 4 life and draw 2. Draw power is something you lack in the deck, so it might be a neat investment.
+1 from me though. :)
February 18, 2012 2:18 a.m.
Thanks for the suggestions and the +1. I like Rest for the Weary as a four-of because of the likelihood that it will be in my opening hand. The goal of this deck is pretty much to get to 30 life as quickly as possible, since that is what both the win-cons rely on. And if I draw more later on, it won't really be a dead drop, because I will probably have mana to spare by then and an extra 4 life won't hurt. But I see your point about the lack of draw power. I'll think about it.
February 19, 2012 12:47 a.m.
Haha whoops, you're right. +1'ed it now. My phone must've screwed up because I was doing all that last night on it. >.>
February 19, 2012 1:31 a.m.
Haha yeah my phone can't even handle TappedOut at all...

I had the same idea of making a deck about Chalice of Death here: deck:tribute-to-oblivion

I'm aware of that combo, but that's not really what the deck is about. I wanted to build this deck around and synergy with it, and I think the Relic-Warder combo would take away from it. Thanks for your suggestion though.
March 1, 2012 7:13 p.m.
Awesome deck man. I've never even thought of something like this. It would be much more competitive in type two, only because modern has access to some nasty decks.
March 2, 2012 12:10 a.m.
Thanks for looking dude. It probably would be, but it's pretty much for casual play and small local tournaments, so I'm not super worried about the competitiveness.

im a fan!

I had an older deck like this (minus , of course). I used Congregate, Sunspring Expedition, Trigon of Mending, Ajani's Mantra, Landbind Ritual, Suture Priest, Renewed Faith and Angel's Mercy at a whim. I love these kind of white life-gain decks that are impossible to overturn. Please, take a look at my standard deck deck:spirited-chalice and comment on it. I could use some good ideas. :)
March 2, 2012 6:41 p.m.
Haha, you've basically built a Martyr-Proc deck, without the Proclamation of Rebirth. I would seriously suggest adding Path to Exile mainboard though. You'll find that with no spot removal, you're in for a world of hurt, even with all the lifegain.
Good looking deck, +1.
P.S. Check out my Modern Deck, U/W Tron! :)

Since Modern is 8th edition forward, why sideboard Day of Judgment instead of Wrath of God? Same mana cost, but Wrath makes it so the destroyed creatures can't regenerate. I mean, I understand Day is cheaper to get your hands on, but Wrath isn't ridiculously priced.
Otherwise, I think this is awesome.

Also, just a consideration...
Faith's Shield. I know you're pretty much guaranteed to never have the Fateful Hour portion trigger, but the ability to give any permanent you control protection from the color of your choice at instant speed? Pretty boss.
March 4, 2012 2:17 a.m.
You guys are all right about Wrath of God, but a playset costs as much as this entire deck... not really worth it for a semi-casual deck. I really appreciate the feedback though. I've upped Kabira Crossroads to 4x. Thanks everyone!
March 4, 2012 4:08 a.m.
Less than $10.00 for a card ain't too shabby...http://magic.tcgplayer.com/db/magic_single_card.asp?cn=Wrath%20of%20God

Not at anything officially sanctioned. But the MTG club at my university had a modern tournament and I got 2nd place in it with this deck.
January 23, 2014 1:52 a.m.
im going to note i have not read any of the comments above because there are a lot and honestly i dont want to read them all but i like the idea of the deck but it needs a safety card that can bring cards from the graveyard like Elixir of Immortality or something like that it could really help if you become creatureless
January 23, 2015 5:49 p.m.
just build that deck with small changes.Removed Rox and 7 Plains, allways had too much lands.Therefor I've added 2x Well of Lost Dreams, 2 aditional Oblivion Ring, 4x Dazzling Reflection, 2x Elixir of Immortality.
Works pretty well now :)
