So, take into account what kind of deck you want to play. Aggro? Cut the board wipes. Control? Add more removal, take most of your creatures out. I'm going to work ona n aggro gameplan since that looks like whre your deck is leaning towards.

Cut: Tragic Poet

Prowling Felidar

Lagonna-Band Trailblazer

Knight of New Benalia

Dwarven Priest

Archon of Emeria (You are an aggro deck and want to be able to cast more than one creature in the same turn)

Rustwing Falcon

Djeru, With Eyes Open (you run no planeswalkers, also a bad card)

Adamant Will

Aegis of the Heavens

Blessed Light

Divine Verdict

Squire's Devotion

Slash of Talons

Smite the Monstrous All your sorcerys

Lithoform Engine

Hieromancer's Cage

Karma

On Serra's Wings

Novice Knight you run no equipment

4 plains

Now this might seem like a lot, but I will give you some suggestions for cards that will help further your gameplan

Creatures: currently you are running some really good cards as one ofs and bad cards with more copies, such as; Dauntless Bodyguard , Leonin Vanguard , Hunted Witness , Luminarch Aspirant Venerated Loxodon which is a great finisher, and Speaker of the Heavens .

You could run 1 more Ajani's Pridemate and 4x Soul Warden

Legion's Landing  Flip is a very good card, so I would keep it.

Removal: If you want to go with some of the best white removal ever printed that is modern legal, but a little expensive, go with Path to Exile . If not Path to Exile would be much better than Hieromancer's Cage , Conclave Tribunal is pretty good, but I wouldn't run more than 5 removal spells since you want to be going wide with your creatures and a hand ful of removal will just stall the game and you will lose in the end. You want to end the game fast while maintaining a high life score.

You want four of anything that you're never unhappy to draw. In the cards I listed, Ajani's Pridemate , Speaker of the Heavens , and Soul Warden should all be four-ofs, Heliod probably three just because you can't have more than one of him on the battlefield (legendary rule). Dream Trawler is one I forgot to mention, but he's a really good finishing creature, probably only 2-3 copies though.

Yeah, I can help you out with other decks if you need.

Hmm. Well, I'm no good with older cards, but they'd be expensive anyway. For a basic blue/white lifegain deck (which is an easy enough deck to pilot), Ajani's Pridemate is really good. Soul Warden is one of the best life gainers in the game, Sphinx's Revelation is really strong in the late game, but they're about $3 each. Felidar Sovereign or Angel of Destiny can give you an alternate way to win, but they aren't necessarily as good as they sound.

More recent good lifegain cards are things like Speaker of the Heavens , Angelic Accord , or Heliod, Sun-Crowned . Remember that you can put up to 4 of any copy of a card in your deck (except basic lands, of which you can have as many as you want). Typically you want as many copies of your good cards as possible.

There are plenty of other archetypes that fit into blue and white, but lifegain is a good one for a new player because it's pretty easy to use and teaches the power of synergy.

Hero of Precinct One and Tome of the Guildpact are some decent cards that care about multicolored without being so themselves. Orzhov picks could be Pillar of the Paruns , Beckon Apparition , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , Nightsky Mimic , Kaya's Guile , Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Karlov of the Ghost Council , Resolute Rider , Seraph of the Scales , or Vizkopa Guildmage . I tried to pick card suggestions that fit in with either the multicolored or the lifegain plans. Popular inclusions in more tempo or aggro focused Mimic/Divinity builds include Castigate , Orzhov Charm , Mourning Thrull , Cartel Aristocrat , Sin Collector , and Gift of Orzhova . Combine the two and you might get some value out of a shell of Ajani's Pridemate , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Light of Promise , Wall of Limbs , and Archangel of Thune .

Anyway, now that I've probably named every black and white card ever printed, do let me know if you have questions. Good luck!

Oh, sorry. When I was playing it I didn't see what the other side of Emeria's Call was. No, I think it is good as it it then. On a slightly different topic, I was able to get Ajani's Pridemate up to something like 60/60, which was rather fun.

Heya, pretty sure I played against you earlier this morning (that or someone who netdecked this exact build)! I was playing my Mono-Black Hand Hate (MTG Arena Build) deck to farm up a couple of black spellcasting dailies. I'm going to assume it was you, but even if not here's some thoughts:

I ended up winning, but your deck definitely has a lot of answers for stuff. Couple things I noticed here:

  • Ajani's Pridemate is just all-around better than Hallowed Priest since he starts @ 2/2 for the same mana. I've seen a lot of mono-white lifegain decks run both, but since you only use one of them here I'd definitely go for the pridemate.

  • Bloodthirsty Aerialist might not be a bad call along those same lines, with some flying for defense (I did quite a bit of damage to ya just with 1/1 fliers in addition to my Discard arsenal)

  • Indulging Partrician could be a good fit here, to add in some more damage-dealing to your lifegain.

  • Need at least a little Planeswalker hate (at least the option) with either Bloodchief's Thirst or more ideally Murderous Rider since he's got Lifelink for extra synergy once in play. (Bloodchief is always a 4-mana play to destroy a planeswalker, as I don't believe there are any 2-mana walkers in any of the Arena cards). I was able to whittle ya away for quite a few turns just with creature destroy and 1 or 2 weenie blockers with Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage just sitting in play. He's far from the most devastating walker option out there, but having some ability to control them would be ideal.

  • Call of the Death-Dweller would not be a bad call here either, to make better use of Village Rites with your cheap-cast creatures.

Either way, hope at least 1 or 2 of these suggestions are helpful. +1 on the build regardless!

Hey, I was thinking about your deck. By my experience, Angel of Vitality is not that powerful as she looks like. Maybe you should replace her with something that make better use of your powerful lifegain, for example Ajani's Pridemate , Speaker of the Heavens (he's in your sideboard), Light of Promise or Heliod, Sun-Crowned , to boost creature of your choice (You will have them plenty). Also, I was thinking about your final strike and those are my two propositions: Shelter (instead of Sunbeam Spellbomb ) and Angel of Destiny if you couldn't kill your enemy in conventional way. I m not a very experienced player, but I'm glad if I helped. Btw. I like your deck :D. Good luck with it ^^.
