Soul Warden is without a doubt my favourite card in the game. So naturally the fact that she is part of a tier 1.5, and affordable deck in the modern format that is fun to play gets me very excited!
Even now, its still kicking it!
It's also pretty simple; gain a significant amount of life, then aggro off with Honor of the Pure boosting you 1/1's and using Ranger of Eos to fetch Serra Ascendant , once you hit the magic number, to beat your opponents senseless!.
Shifted around some of the number in the main deck to improve consistency and the curve.
I've also cut some of the non basic lands, as the two Ghost Quarter s and four Flagstones of Trokair alongside each other cluttered up the consistency of playing aggressively and messed up goldfishes with Spectral Procession on turn three.
This deck is very solid man. You have clearly put in a lot of thought for its build and in the 3 games I played against it you were dropping brutal Soul Sister + HoTP + Spectral Procession combos constantly (while Ranger of Eos comes in to add ascendants for aggression or sisters if they have been wiped).
Ajani Goldmane and Serra Ascendant of course are easy, fast beaters and its crazy how quickly you gain life and deal damage. If I were to make any suggestions, it would be to try and mainboard some Brave the Elements (I really am a fan of that card, it single-handedly wins games). When I played against your deck with mine the only thing that let me win was the colour prot it granted me to bypass all of your creatures.
You pretty much have all of the cards that you need for a WW-lifegain deck in modern. You arguably could take out Aven Mindcensor but as you said in your description you are keeping him in for your current meta. Maybe you could add a Sword of Fire and Ice or two to mix things up? Protection is IMO the most broken ability you can give a creature in magic and white abuses it better than any other color.
Other than that awesome, +1 to a fellow white mage! :)
Interesting...but I think its uses are still a little limited. The old Proc based decks used to play Kami of False Hope for a similar effect (though the children have more synergy with the deck), though those decks used Proclamation of Rebirth for recursion.
I'll test him tonight, but ultimately I'm not to sure where I can fit it.
Thanks for the encouragement. :D
The problem with Auriok Champion is that she disrupts the curve slightly of like sister in Pridemate into Procession, etc. Those bonuses are good, but I feel the Mirran sister is slightly better in midrange builds.
Mikaeus is mostly just a big guy with upsides, that can be fetched with Ranger of Eos, so he has occasional use in the late game. That said, he's spot is usually interchangeable post board.
As for Immortal Servitude, I've yet to play with it, so I'm unsure; I was never much of a fan of the Proclamation of Rebirth versions of this deck, but perhaps the Servitude serves a better purpose here.
