Ajani's Welcome Discussion
2 days ago
Winter, if I can get one or two small lifegain cards like Underworld Coinsmith, Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls or Daxos, Blessed by the Sun along with Bolas's Citadel out, I can usually get a board state to win the game without dying to it’s cost. Sensei's Divining Top helps me get around the lands. The lifegain also helps offset Bitterblossom.

I would recommend some macro changes. First of all I would recommend adding white for a Soul Sisters package (with the new Daxos) so you can get incidental life gain going, which is very powerful for accumulating 10-20 life over the course of the game. So we're talking Ajani's Welcome, Linden, the Steadfast Queen etc.
The issue with deck as is is that you are not applying any pressure before the Aetherflux win. It's important to keep in mind that the original Soul sisters, and any variants, are inherently an aggro deck because lifegain doesn't win you games. With combo decks such as Lotus Breach and Inverter running around, they will outrace you to the combo, so you need to be applying pressure while gaining life.

These two are a great pair. You might like these: Pitiless Plunderer, Black Market, Zulaport Cutthroat, Syr Konrad, the Grim, Ophiomancer, Bishop of Wings, Cavalier of Dawn, Fanatical Devotion, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vizkopa Guildmage, Cliffhaven Vampire, Epicure of Blood, Crested Sunmare, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Worn Powerstone, Ajani's Welcome

If you are running Felidar Soverign than you will also want to run Test of Endurance. Aetherflux Resivoir is a great card that can gain you a ton and help shoot down opponents. Check out all of the Ajani planswalker cards if you can afford them but especially Ajani, Strength of the Pride. Ajani's Welcome, Auriok Champion, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Healer of the Pride, Impassioned Orator, and Pious Evangel Flip can all be extra copies of Soul Warden. You have a lot of untapped potential in the landbase (pun intended) and it wouldn't hurt to replace some of those Plains with other cards that you can get extra value from. Drifting Meadow, Desert of the True, and Secluded Steppe can all replace themselves for a card if you draw them late game. Myriad Landscape can help ramp you, and Rogue's Passage is a great way of getting extra damage through. Idyllic Grange can get you one extra counter, Castle Ardenvale and Westvale Abbey Flip can both pump out creatures if you lacking some, and lastly Buried Ruin and Emeria, The Sky Ruin can get back cards from the graveyard. The deck looks fun to play and functions pretty well. Let me know if you want to suggest more cards, these were just a few off the top of my head!

+1 for the name alone, love it!
First thing I'd suggest is you up the number of lands you're running to somewhere in the 21-23 range. 16 lands makes it EXTREMELY unlikely that you'll be able to consistently hit your land drops - the only decks that run that few are burn decks with their most expensive spells costing 2 mana. If you want to even think about playing 4+ mana spells, you're going to want more lands.
Moving on to more targetted feedback - if you want to upgrade it, I think you'll need to pick a direction to move the deck in. Right now it's less of a deck and more of a pile of green and white cards (not meant to be a slam on you, that's how most people enter/re-enter the game). You've got some solid +1/+1 counters cards like Gyre Sage and Hardened Scaled, and you've got some solid lifegain-matters cards like Heliod, Glorybound Initiate, and Lone Rider. I'd recommend on honing in on one or both of those strategies, and replacing cards that don't work toward one or both of them (like Primal Druid and Moss Viper, just at a glance).
If you want to hone in on lifegain, you could look at Ajani's Pridemate and more Lone Rider Flip. For a bit more money you could look at Dawn of Hope. Another step up in price gets you stuff like Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Archangel of Thune. And at the very top you could look at more Heliod, Sun-Crowned. To gain life you could look at Healer's Hawk, Ajani's Welcome, Revitalize, or Daxos, Blessed by the Sun.
If you want to hone in on counters, you could look at (I don't know this arhcetype quite as well so I can't give you price brackets, you'll have to check yourself) Animation Module, Stonecoil Serpent, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Tireless Tracker, Jadelight Ranger, Experiment One, Huatli's Raptor, Mowu, Loyal Companion, or Knight of Autumn. There's probably more excellent cards in that category as well, but like I said I don't know that archetype as well (I'm better versed in BLUE green counters).
You also don't really have much in the way of creature removal, which could prove dangerous. Selesnya Charm and Banishing Light are alright, but I'd up how many you're running if that's going to be your only removal. Declaration in Stone is a premium white removals spell you could look into if you're looking for upgrades in that department.
These are all just suggestions though - you should build and play the deck however you find it most fun. It is your deck, after all! Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

This is two different decks fighting each other for space.
The other is Mono-White lifegain. Ajani's Welcome, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Authority of the Consuls, Archangel of Thune, Ashes of the Abhorrent for the sideboard, maybe Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Lone Rider Flip, perhaps, as a finisher, Nyx-Fleece Ram is stunningly potent against fast creature decks, in a similar vein to the also-pioneer-legal Wall of Essence.
I think your first step in making improvements to this deck is deciding which of these your deck wants to be.

king-saproling I absolutely love Angel's Trumpet, thanks for the suggestion! I was looking for a good sac outlet enchantment to get through Null Rod effects that can also be found with my new Idyllic Tutor and this is perfect. Also provides a bit of protection for Darien and other key pieces.
This deck was made budgetless for MTGO, but my paper list that is about half the price of this one runs Open the Armory and Ajani's Welcome so you're on point there. As far as things like Ankh of Mishra, I tried to keep self-damaging effects limited to cards that have other utility like lands, since the focus of the deck is more on assembling combos and less making lots of dudes. Thanks for the suggestions!
