Celestial Unicorn

Creature — Unicorn

Whenever you gain life, put a +1/+1 counter on this.

Celestial Unicorn doesn't really fit. Ivory Cup isn't as useful as it sounds.

Gravitational Shift is great with flyers.

Get your land count up to about 34-35 and most of the other cards you add should be artifacts or enchantments if you want free fairies. Alexi's Cloak, Propaganda, white enchantments that exile things, Helm of the Ghastlord, Bident of Thassa, Contempt, Mark of Eviction, card draw etc are all good choices.

Alright!

Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.

Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.

Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.

Banisher Priest is good.

Blinding Souleater could easily be replaced by Law-Rune Enforcer, or, if you'd prefer an artifact creature, Burnished Hart is just better in general.

Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.

Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.

Consul's Shieldguard... see the Aegis Angel comments.

Court Street Denizen... see the Blinding Souleater comments, though this one is better so it's definitely worth keeping around if you want.

Drillworks Mole is a cool card. Basri Ket, Felidar Retreat, and Cathars' Crusade are good too.

Eldrazi Devastator is actually a card I used to run in my decks as a finisher. I would recommend something like Finale of Glory as an alternative that you can really sink your mana into.

Felidar Cub is nice, but War Priest of Thune is strictly better.

Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.

Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.

Inspiring Overseer and Knight of the White Orchid are good.

Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.

Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.

From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.

Toolcraft Exemplar is a really cool card that I have NEVER seen before. If it's working well for you, you should try out Serra Ascendant as well. It runs in a similar vein.

Welcoming Vampire is good too.

Celestial Flare could be replaced by Silence.

Dauntless Onslaught could be replaced by Charge, Bastion Protector, Benalish Marshal, Ethereal Guidance, Glorious Anthem, Guardians' Pledge, or Path of Bravery.

Divine Verdict could just be replaced by plain removal, like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Conclave Tribunal, or Oblivion Ring.

Feat of Resistance is nice.

Gideon's Reproach - see Divine Verdict's feedback.

Gods Willing is good.

Kill Shot - see Divine Verdict's feedback. Actually, for the rest of these cards see that and Dauntless Onslaught's feedback.

Aligned Hedron Network is good.

Cloak of the Bat and Hero's Blade - see Dauntless Onslaught's feedback, but also Commander's Plate.

Spidersilk Net doesn't make a whole lot of sense. If you want another 0-mana artifact, look no further than Mishra's Bauble.

Font of Vigor - see previous comment

Siegecraft - Eldrazi Conscription is one of the best auras in the game, but Battle Mastery is nice too

Not Forgotten - Rest in Peace, Ashnod's Altar

Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned

Also consider Sphere of Safety.

I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Nice build. IDK what your budget is, but Archangel of Thune would be epic in here. You could remove something like Celestial Unicorn etc. for it.

Twinblade Paladin is a cheaper and easy upgrade for Celestial Unicorn, too.

I would drop Light of Promise, since big auras tend to attract kill spells. Maybe replace it with Drogskol Reaver? Goes infinite with Queza, Augur of Agonies or Shabraz, the Skyshark.

You can also definitely drop 2-3 lands with your mana curve,

I think Voice of the Blessed would make for a straight upgrade to this deck by replacing Celestial Unicorn

qhollis405 on Casual Life Gain

Removed 4x Sunbond, replaced with Light of Promise, as it's strictly better.

Also removed 3x Wall of Reverence and 4x Recumbent Bliss for now in favor of more combo.

Added 4x Sworn Companions and 3x Celestial Unicorn.

I would honestly drop any one of the colors and just focus it more. Life gain is solid with any pairing and all 3 pairings have an effective way to utilize it. WG and focus more on cards that gain counters from lifegain like Celestial Unicorn and Hallowed Priest. BG with a card like Dina, Soul Steeper and Tend the Pests with the inkeeper and sacrifice something like Daemogoth Titan. WB with razelfark's suggestions and I would add Cleric Class to either of the white combos.

+2 Mace vs. Vulshok Morningstar . Those Vulshok do know how to make a metal whacking stick.

From what I've seen so far, there are very, very few cards that are generic enough to reprint outside of a Forgotten Realms set. Something like Celestial Unicorn or Dueling Rapier could make it out, but this is truly D&D played with cards.
