Fountain of Renewal better than Ajani's Mantra.

I don't think Starfield Mystic is where you want to go with this deck, since you need to play more enchantments. Staff of the Sun Magus is also pretty slow. I'd go up to the 8 soul sisters and then maybe play Voice of the Blessed Jr. in the form of Ajani's Pridemate.

Kor Firewalker for the sideboard i guess?

I've been working on my own version of this set, and I gotta say you made some great choices.

Some suggestions:

Otherwise, I love it, and I'll be using some of this in mine!

Drana's Emissary which I suggested seems way better than Ajani's Mantra

zapyourtumor, I agree with almost everything you suggested, except Ajani's Mantra for now it plays well with Cleric of Life's Bond and Bloodthirsty Aerialist before I made changes according to the first comment those cards were the bread and butter for this deck, and I've won a few games just having vito out while playing Beacon of Immortality , You are correct about needing some removal, and Ill try cutting some land, but before I added the extra I frequently got land-locked, also thank you for the card suggestions I will definitely look into them!

Too many lands. Cut 3-4.

Ajani's Mantra is bad.

Ajani's Welcome isn't needed here in my opinion, if you really want this kind of effect put in Soul's Attendant since it gives you life off of Cleric of Life's Bond. I probably wouldn't add either though.

Boon Reflection way too slow. Definitely cut this. Same with Beacon of Immortality .

Brave the Sands probably not worth it.

Cradle of Vitality . Even worse than Boon Reflection. Costs 4 mana to get it out and then requires a 2 mana investment everytime for not that much payoff.

You need 1 drops. Vampire of the Dire Moon , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Inquisition of Kozilek .

Additional vampires: Gifted Aetherborn , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Drana's Emissary

Need some removal: Path to Exile , Fatal Push , Vindicate

Ciao Arthurshepard80,grazie mille!!! Conclave Mentor è forte ma credo che non sia proprio adattissima a questo mazzo che si concentra di piu sul rimbalzare le creature,infatti forse piu avanti la sposto in maybeboard per far spazio a piu rimozioni. Servirebbe un mazzo piu incentrato sui segnalini +1+1,con effetti alla Ajani's Mantra sfruttati da Serene Steward .In un hydra che hanno tutte segnalini andrebbe benissimo! Potenzialmente con le idre si potrebbe fare anche un verde/nero perchè esiste una copia che fa un lavoro simile: Winding Constrictor .

Interesting Idea. Add Exquisite Blood to infinite ping opponents with Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose . I would add Fountain of Renewal , Nyx-Fleece Ram and or Ajani's Mantra to gain life each turn. You don't need to ramp if you include Chaplain's Blessing , Renewed Faith or even Tavern Swindler . These can make Licia cost only .

You could definitely add some pay offs for your life gain triggers like Dawn of Hope, Well of Lost Dreams, Cliffhaven Vampire, and Boon Reflection.

There are also tons of other cards that get counters when you gain life such as, Sunbond, Light of Promise, Ajani's Pridemate, Wall of Limbs, and Bloodthirsty Aerialist which can all become problems very quickly since its per trigger of life gain.

You could also look into more spells that trigger at the end of turn if you gained a certain amount of life. Resplendent Angel, Regna, the Redeemer, Regal Bloodlord, Angelic Accord, the new Witch of the Moors, and Griffin Aerie.

And then adding more consistent forms of life gain will let you get more triggers therefore making you a bigger threat. Drana's Emissary, Shattered Angel, Soulmender, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Ajani's Mantra, Ajani Goldmane, and Palace Siege.

Finally, I've seen enough people win with Felidar Sovereign not to recommend it to any life gain deck.
