Creature — Human Shaman

Whenever another creature dies (is put into a graveyard from the battlefield), you may gain 1 life.

This is a neat build. At first I was turned off by the redundancy of the creatures overlapping with Atheros ability. I figured ETB/LTB effects would be the best way to abuse Atheros. But I am sucker for gimmicks/themes and I like the direction of this.

Bloodghast and Nether Traitor are auto includes to this strategy.

PlagueSpitter would be an upgrade to Noxious Field.

Deathgreeter, Cruel Celebrant, Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Harvester of Souls, Body Launderer, Pitiless Plunderer, etc. type effects might be the engine missing from this strategy.

Vanishing Verse is slowly becoming one of my favorite removal spells. It would round out the playset of Orzhov exile.

Crypt of Agadeem on theme land.

And as always Null Brooch = <3

Some thoughts:

  • your mana curve is very high, and your land count is very low. I would suggest limiting yourself to only 4 cards that cost 4-or-more mana, and going up to 23 lands.

  • a bunch of your creatures aren’t helping you control the board. Deathgreeter only gains you life, and Mortician Beetle only gets bigger. I would focus on better payoffs for things dying. For example, Mayhem Devil would thrive in a deck like this.

  • I’d suggest ditching both of Virulent Swipe and Murder. Black has enough awesome killspells that you should never need to spend 3 mana for one. And Swipe feels redundant here with your existing amount of killspells.

Here are some ideas.

Deathgreeter is a good card to utilize. It works really well in a sac-engine type deck.

Another card you could add is Falkenrath Noble. It only says target, but when someone has to sac a creature, the added bonus of losing life is infuriating.

Personally, I would add Scholar of Athreos. It seems a little expensive, but it works so well in a life-gain deck. It might not be exactly what you're looking for, but it would still synergize really well.

Any particular reason for no Vindictive Vampire?

Erebos, God of the Dead and Greed are nice card draw engines on your terms and Erebos stops your opponents from gaining life.

If you want a bit more life gain I suggest Deathgreeter.

I play Sisters in Modern, and while there are some differences I can honestly say that you need some better payoffs. While Blight-Priest can work in the long game, Sisters functions better as an aggro deck, and cards that fill s similar role to Ajani's Pridemate should be included. While I know PM is not Pauper legal, you might consider doing a Scryfall search for some lifegain payoffs that like to smash face. Also, consider Deathgreeter in the sideboard against removal-heavy decks.

I wouldn't cling to Cling to Dust. A card like Deathgreeter will probably gain you more life over the course of the game and works well with many of the cards in this deck.
