Thanks for the suggestions, Lucky! The issue I've run into with Alms Beast is that it's strength is largely dictated by what my opponent is playing, making it seem more relevant in a sideboard. Even then many of the large creatures that I can't outsustain with the occasional self-heal tend to either have life-gain effects anyways (IE. Griselbrand or Wurmcoil Engine ) or are better targeted by a Condemn than hoping that they only have the one creature so that Devour Flesh would be relevant, though I would likely keep some Devour Flesh in the SB. Even Oust seems to be generally better specifically because I can choose a target, and even if the damage is only effectively a bolt it works better on smaller creatures or the ones that don't attack and therefore can't be Condemn ed anyways.

The other creatures are primarily placeholders at the moment. I'd auto-include Dark Confidant if I had the money for him at the moment, and I already have Wall of Shards listed in the main deck. Currently running the cheap deathtouch creatures+ Warriors' Lesson is a solid enough replacement until I can afford it, but it's not looking to be the end-all-be-all of the build.

Manamorphose is actually probably a really easy way to justify Aria of Flame now that you mention it, so I'll probably look to get some for it when I've got the money to spare.

Thanks again for the suggestions...!

My friend made a weird version of this deck using Alms Beast . My suggestion (Which is what my friend did) is to use 4 Wall of Shards , 4 Devour Flesh in the main board. The other enchantments in the deck cost too much mana for modern and don't have enough pay off. In addition, you have enough life gain in the deck that you probably only need the 4 Wall of Shards and 4 Alms Beast . Your other creatures are too easy to kill with Fatal Push , Electrolyze , Lightning Bolt etc. Also, you probably want to change your land base to more fetches and only one or two copy of each shock land that works and a single copy of each basic. Finally, Beacon of Immortality makes a player instantly lose and should be included in the deck for a last resort. And you defiantly need draw. You'll run out of cards really fast and also need to dig for Tainted Remedy , so I suggest Harmonize

Overall, here is what I would recommend

Creatures!!! (AWWWW MANNNN) 4x Alms Beast 4x Wall of Shards 4x Dark Confidant

Instants 4x Rest for the Weary 3x Condemn 3x Path to Exile 3x Devour Flesh 3x Manamorphose

Sorcery 2x Beacon of Immortality 2x Harmonize Enchantment 4x Tainted Remedy 2x Aria of Flame

Lands 2x Grove of the Burnwillows 4x Marsh Flats 2x Bloodstained Mire 2x Windswept Heath 3x Godless Shrine 1x Blood Crypt 1x Sacred Foundry 1x Overgrown Tomb 1x Temple Garden 3x Plains 2x Swamp

I think I have an even better idea, which i have to say is inspired from the deck Tainted Love.

Tainted Remedy and Beacon of Immortality kills an opponent. But you can still run a cool WB deck with Renewed Faith, Condemn, Alms Beast, Swords to Plowshares (if you can cards from outside the modern pool).

It seems fair, cheap and sweet to do.

I love the combination of Beacon of Immortality and Tainted Remedy for an instant win. I don't see that splashing green for Siege Rhino works too well in this deck and would prefer to stick to /.

+2 Alms Beast, +1 Beacon of Immortality, +1 Idyllic Tutor, -4 Siege Rhino, then simplify your land-base, with maybe just Isolated Chapel, Plains and Swamp

Many thanks for the +1, suino89! RE, Alms Beast - it's really only good after Tainted Remedy is out, so that makes the Beast more of a wincon than anything, which the deck doesn't really need. I've tried it with a full set of it and it wasn't better than a Congregate, which I can use on myself if I need.

I understand from the comments that Alms Beast had been in the deck before, so I'll assume you've removed it for reasons. What a petty, it's such a cool card for the deck.

I really like the list as is. But I defintely second on Dark Petition.
