Children of Korlis Discussion

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.
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

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.
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 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
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.
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.

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!
