Children of Korlis is a pretty solid idea for the list, particular if an early Kambal (for some reason) was not ideal for your board. Generally, I find the life total gravitates around 40+ for this Deck... However, there are some major pay offs with Korlis: 1. Immediately Tutorable, even Ranger-Captain of Eos finds him and 2. Helps ups go through twice as many Cards. I like this addition a lot. Only good on Combo Turns, should Vilis be out though, that's one thing to bare in mind.

Any thoughts of running a psudo Tin Fins style card like Children of Korlis ?

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .

Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing  Flip.

Finally, stoneforge getting unbanned means that turn three Batterskull is on the menu, but also Sword of Light and Shadow .

Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.

austintayshus Originally I chose to cut out Aetherflux Reservoir due to the 50 life payment cost, but now that I remembered Children of Korlis and Tainted Sigil , I'll probably put it back in. As for the Soul Sisters. I know they'll give me a lot of life in the long run, but those small drops of life won't help me get Licia out quicky. Martyr of Sands , Chaplain's Blessing and other such cards will give me bursts of life to help me get Licia out much quicker (as early as turn 3).

Also, thank you for being my first commenter!

I'm a little surprised you're not running Aetherflux Reservoir

Also, I think you'll gain more life in the long run with Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant than you will with Martyr of Sands and Children of Korlis

Neat deck!

Great deck!

I think Holy Light would be a great inclusion to the deck, as White has very few ways of dealing with masses of tokens efficiently. This card lets you do that without affecting your own smaller creatures.

You have Suture Priest twice in your list, under board control and Life Gain.

Survival Cache seems like a great card for your deck. You'll most likely be the player with the most life anyways, and this gives you two life gain triggers and will most likely draw you two cards.

I'm not sure how good something like Revitalize / Healing Hands / Renewed Faith would be, but getting a lifegain trigger and a card seems like a decent way to filter through your deck.

Children of Korlis could be a good "Fog" effect for you.

Exile seems like a good fit for removal in your deck.

Seems a shame to pass up on Martyr of Sands . It only gets you one trigger, but it's still a lot of life, which is worth something.

Seraph of Dawn is an absolute beast in this format. the big butt means it survives a lot of removal and combat, and putting equipment on it is amazing.

Along the same lines, Student of Ojutai really dishes out the lifegain for you on a great body, especially considering how few creatures you're playing.

I feel like most of your lifelink creatures are not really worth playing. They're going to be easily blocked and killed in most situations and not net you much of an advantage. I'd say only the ones that gain your some sort of card advantage are really worth playing. I could be wrong about Healer's Hawk, though.

Lastly, you have plenty of ways to protect your commander, but I would just like to suggest Angelic Renewal . You can play this before your commander and not have to hold mana up all the time for it. Same goes for Benevolent Bodyguard . This lets you play a much tighter, more efficient game plan.

list of possilbe clerics to consider:

Heliod, God of the Sun - okay, not a cleric, but makes cleric tokens

Alms Collector - good card draw engine in EDH - prevents players from drawing their deck in one go also

Auriok Champion - linear upgrade from Soul Warden - resists removal

Auriok Replica - good sac for anti-commander damage, fits cleric type, colorless to cast. not super amazing, but worth mentioning

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim - not all that useful until you gain some life, then amazing removal. and 2/3 deathtouch for 2 isn't bad either

Battlefield Medic - damage prevention based on clerics. nothing to special, but tribal themed, so I mention it here.

Beloved Chaplain - evasion that's hard to top - can't be blocked by creatures, can't be removed by creatures.

Blind Zealot - sacs to destroy target creature when it hits a player, good for general

Cabal Archon - sac outlet? check. Cleric tribal? check. sadistic grin? double check.

Cabal Executioner - on par with blind zealot - lacks the evasion, but doesn't sac to activate. mixed bag, but not horrible

Children of Korlis - sacs to revert life total to start of turn? yes please

Custodi Lich - grants Monarch, and forces creature sac on play and when you regain it. seems good.

Custodi Soulcaller - requires a few players to be super amazing, but still worthwhile even if all you get back is Children of Korlis

Daru Spiritualist - not quite pro- red, but helps agaisnt spot removal for entire tribe. bonus if paired with Shaman en-Kor

Devout Chaplain - most clerics are humans, exile is good. enough said.

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails - good protection for your side of the field.

Entomber Exarch - cleric that can reanimate or force pitch from opponents. not gamebreaker, but solid card with options

Frontline Medic - clerics are indistructable as long as 3 swing? seems good

Giver of Runes - really should be vodka-aunt of runes, but w/e, still good

High Priest of Penance - great to chump with, better with aethreos, best when indistructable

Kor Sanctifiers - decent artifact / enchantment removal on a cleric body, not much else to say.

Leonin Arbiter - the staple of death & taxes and hate bears is, in fact, a cleric. seems useful.

Leonin Relic-Warder - fiend hunter for artifacts & enchantments, not much else to say.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch - cleric that slowly buffs your side

Order of Whiteclay - recusion cleric. not as useful once it gets vigilence, so fair warning.

Pious Evangel  Flip - sac outlet that transforms into a mini- blood artist, is cleric.

Pontiff of Blight - mass extort is disgusting. seven toughness is hard to remove.

Ravos, Soultender - recursion + steroids = win

Remorseful Cleric - mass graveyard remval + evasion is good

Shaman en-Kor - this guy is bonkers, and with any form of damage prevention makes your side nigh unkillable

Sin Collector - exiles instants & sorceries, solid card. never returns them either. probably is on a wanted list in some libraries for back charges

True Believer - if you don't want people to target you, ivory mask with legs is a cleric too

Tymna the Weaver - less useful in duels, but solid for mass card draw otherwise

Vile Deacon - cleric tribal lord for black, comparible to doubtless one

Weathered Wayfarer - land tax on legs. still a cleric

Whipgrass Entangler - ghostly prison based on clerics for mana, but single target per use

Whisper, Blood Liturgist - creature recusion that nukes for 6 with general out, or mass reanimation if opponen't don't take it.

Profane Prayers - not an X spell, but cleric tribal nuke seems kinda on-theme.

Love lifegain!

Ajani's Pridemate could help you add some power to your board.

Radiant Fountain is another lifegain land you could use.

I would also recommend adding some 1-drops to the deck. I know it doesn't seem like much but having something to do on each turn can make your deck much more powerful. For this I would recommend Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and Ajani's Welcome and Children of Korlis and Genju of the Fields and Goldenglow Moth and Leonin Vanguard and Nip Gwyllion and Pride Guardian and Soulmender .

Hope this helps!
