If the requirement of death is an issue, don't you run into that with Blood Artist ? For life gain, have you considered Blood Baron of Vizkopa ? It's on the slower side, but it has prot from excellent removal colors and it has lifelink. It also combos well with Sorin.

Also, any reason why you're running celestial flare over Path to Exile ?

Lastly, if you need life and find yourself swinging often, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord could be of some value due to his static ability. It is definitely on the expensive side though

lagotripha Thanks for the comment!

I see your point, and Blood Baron of Vizkopa can be a good closer, but I feel it would be a better sideboard card. I feel as though the Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord argument is kind of the same as it is for Liliana, the Last Hope , neither really affects board state immensely--however Sorin combos well with Gideon, Ally of Zendikar . My thoughts were to board in Liliana, the Last Hope when going up against Humans or something else tribal, as her abilities beyond +1 also don't do as much. Both her an Sorin can be useful if I board in Tidehollow Sculler . I just like the stabilizing power of Sorin. Would you still disagree here?

Depending on meta, Blood Baron of Vizkopa is a decent wincon- he dodges most removal.

I'm not a fan of sorin or oath- I'd likely move the sideboard lilis mainboard and run more reinforcements in the sideboard. Sorin doesn't have enough creature targets, and oath is an expensive lightning helix without enough upside.

My reason for Blood Baron of Vizkopa is that he is a 6 drop that is only really good if someone is at 10 life which if they are that low you will probably be killing them soon anyways.

Probably some of your creatures that either don’t do much or cost too much for what they do. My suggestions are Asylum Visitor , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , and Bishop's Soldier

Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant are great cards for the deck.

Sorin Markov could be fun and could help you turn your Blood Baron of Vizkopa on to full power.

Aetherflux Reservoir could be powerful in any lifegain deck.

Rhox Faithmender is a great lifegain boon.

Looks like you're throwing in some mill as well. Is that going to be your primary wincon or a backup?

ZendikariWol Blood Baron of Vizkopa has protection from black and white--no straightforward destroy or exile. It's not quite that easy anymore. A couple of burn spells should do it, though.

My first thought was turn 2 Ascendant Evincar .
