that is a good point, if I remove Blunt the Assault would you recommend I build in some counters or just removal? Because this deck could use removal cards but it also is pretty vulnerable to wipe spells. :(

Additionally, I'd take out Blunt the Assault and put in removal. you already have a ton of life gain in the form of essence warden.

Hey! I think that this deck should use Miren, the Moaning Well . It's a way of regaining life with a creature that will die because of some effect. It makes you gain a lot of life and increases the effect of Willowdusk's ability.

About the untap effects outside of blue, you can use Thousand-Year Elixir or Magewright's Stone . About combos... well, if you use sacrifice effects (e.g. Ashnod's Altar ), you could try the Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion -like combos (actually, these two work alone, but some combos needs a sac outlet). Depending of other cards, loops with Mikaeus, sacrifice outlets and creatures with Persist could also work.

An artifact like Eternity Vessel can reset your life (if I remember well, having your life total become some value counts as lifegain).

Maybe creatures like Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper or Reyhan, Last of the Abzan works well inside this deck. As instants or sorceries... the only one that came to my mind now is Weather the Storm , which can be very interesting in some situations.

Why use cards like Jaddi Offshoot (gains you only one life), Dash Hopes (I think that's an unreliable counterspell and the 5 life is a low cost in EDH), Blunt the Assault (I think that this card is pretty bad, maybe a card like Gray Merchant of Asphodel gains you much more life while drains your opponents) or Lifegift (it won't make you gain a lot of life on the same turn)?

I'd cut Hunting Triad , Llanowar Scout , Sprouting Renewal , Blunt the Assault , Defend the Hearth , Fog , Pause for Reflection , and Root Snare fogs aren't as good as you think. It just buys you a turn without dealing with any threats

I missing Souls Sisters here Soul Warden Soul's Attendant Suture Priest Essence Warden. When you play creature token, you gain life. What about Mimic Vat ??

As some protection, try use Riot Control and Blunt the Assault. Thanks to your general is possible to play it.

I missing two cards with potencial : Paradox Engine and Phyrexian Processor.

If you play Archangel of Thune, why not second half of this combo Spike Feeder.

Try Aura Shards for cleaning table with your tokens.

And for your token production? Oketra´s Monument. If you have too much tokens, try Throne of the God-Pharaoh.

And what discard ?? Pearl Medallion Mind's Eye Dromoka Monument Seasons Past The Mending of Dominaria
