Healer of the Pride Discussion

Love the deck! (upvoted :D) A couple suggestions:

Replace Mind's Eye for Bygone Bishop and Healer of the Pride for Impassioned Orator

One land (maybe a Plains?) for Deserted Temple (to combo with Nykthos)

I'd also put in Secure the Wastes as one way to help close out the game (maybe take out True Conviction ?)

You might also want to take out a few of your 5+cmc cards and run a few protection effects to protect your board state. My fav are: Benevolent Bodyguard Brave the Elements Emerge Unscathed Teferi's Protection Shelter Selfless Spirit .

For card draw, you can put in a couple more equipment tutors for Skullclamp , like Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Relic Seeker or Quest for the Holy Relic

Healer of the Pride would be great with all the cat token adds (and a grade combo with pridemate

It looks like you're pretty heavy into life gain. Since that's the case, I would drop 2 Leonin Skyhunter for 2 more Ajani's Pridemate . I would also drop the 2 Ephemerate for 2 more Path to Exile . From Ephemerate you're not really getting much except life, which probably isn't worth it. In addition I would change the 2 Gods Willing for 2 Brave the Elements . I would also change 2 Healer of the Pride and 2 Ring of Thune for 4 King of the Pride .

Nice, I built something really similar yesterday. Do you have any thoughts on the combo potential of running Gift of Immortality to slap onto Brimaz, King of Oreskos for tons of tokens or maybe even better yet.... Charmed Stray for boosting the lifelink cats? Nomatter who you put it on it seems like overall good value with Healer of the Pride .

Okay, so after looking at this deck for a while, considering its sideboard, and adding some cards that I use often for similar strategies, I've come up with a list of edits (well, actually three lists).

Before I get to those, I would like to explain what I found. Firstly, I like the idea behind the deck. Token strategies are always a great way to make a casual deck that can scale to be for optimized. I love the afterlife keyword as it lends itself to this optimization really well. But there were several less-than-savory card choices in here. The two biggest issues that I saw are ones that I see a lot (and full into too). The first of these is that many cards have a very high cost-to-value ratio. That is, there were several cards that cost too much (mana) and do too little for it. Elgaud Inquisitor is a fantastic example. While Elgaud Inquisitor is on-theme with their on-death triggered ability, that is all they have going for them. The lifelink isn't super useful, and the CMC is WAY too high. They are only a 2/2 too boot. Second off, theme isn't the same as function. I understand that there is a vorthos element to this deck, but since this deck isn't a full tribal deck, I think it's better to focus on ways to make the good parts of the theme work great.

I saw lots of cards that were life gaining cards ( Pontiff of Blight , Impassioned Orator , Riot Control , etc). This deck can make a lot of tokens which Tesya gives lifelink. You need not worry about life gain card. The strength of your creatures that make tokens when they die is that you can easily recur them in W/B. In the lists below, there are many cards that give added value to dying creature or make killing your creatures more ways to die. Lastly and most importantly, you had ZERO ramp and ALMOST NO card draw. THESE ARE THE TWO MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASSPECTS IN EDH!!! You NEED to have them!!! You can not rely solely on the one land drop and card draw. I've listed several cards that assist the main strategy and draw you cards (things like Dredge and Altar's Reap ). As for ramp, there is almost no good ramp outside of green. That only means that you have to look harder. Mana rocks are a must. I only have three in the lists, but they are absolute must-haves. Next, I put in several cards that give you mana in other ways. Most of them align themselves with the main strategy ( Ashnod's Altar , Soldevi Adnate , and Pawn of Ulamog to name a few). Similarly, I added cards that draw you cards from creatures dying. There is one card that I would like to point out in particular, Erebos . The important part of Erebos is his last ability. You pay and 2 life to draw a card. Life is a resource, and you'll be making plenty of it. Be sure to spend it. There are lots of cards that help you turn life into various things, like Bolas's Citadel (which I almost put in and still think has a place here). I would encourage you to look into them. Lastly, I would remove 6 lands. You have other ramp now and don't want to be flooded all of the time.

Here is the list of cards that I would remove:

I understand that there is a budget to this deck, so I've split my suggestions into two lists. The first is all cards that are cheap and should keep you under budget. The second list of cards is for later edits. If you want to spend more money on this deck, those are the cards that I would recommend buying.

As you're read through these, you might notice that a lot of these came from your sideboard. There are lots of good cards in there.

I hope you enjoy these changes. Just remember that casual decks don't have to be un-optimized.

Spirits Do you want a cat-only combo, or a general cat combo.

Felidar Guardian + Restoration Angel + Healer of the Pride is infinite life, but it requires an angel, albeit a good angel, but still an angel.

Thanks for the comment! These are great suggestions.

Healer of the Pride and Mirror Entity will go in right away. I am surprised I didn't think of adding them when I first made the deck.

Ballyrush Banneret and Preeminent Captain are great additions for a soldier deck, but I do not have enough soldier creatures to make them viable. I built this deck more around the token aspect. Still great cards, but I cannot find a card to get rid of for them. Mentor of the Meek was on my mind when I first constructed the deck, but I was worried it will not get it's full use due to all the anthem affects.

Gerrard Capashen is new to me. This is a cool card and I will try to integrate it in right away. Precinct Captain is great for soldier tokens, I'll look into it as well. Goldnight Commander is a fun card as well, I will look to integrate that one in as well.

Settle the Wreckage is a interesting way to get lands. Never thought about using my own creatures as fodder for lands.

Thank you again for the time! I will look at your Darien deck as well.
