love the life gain deck! You've already got lots of great cards in this deck.

I might suggest Suture Priest if you find you want another Soul Warden type effect.

And of course Heliod, Sun-Crowned is great especially when you have so many different lifegain triggers to play off.

Thanks, capwner! It is such a really fun combo, and adds such a layer of depth for the deck. It's just been a Collected Company deck for years, putting as many mini combos inside of it that worked.

It's funny that you mention Fury, because that was one of the pivotal cards that made me have to update and modernize the deck. It focused the deck on just the two card, most efficient combos, but still had to hope for the right drops against the right deck.

Agatha's Soul Cauldron was the final piece of the puzzle. It finally allows the deck to play through hate and interruption, and it adds so much more cohesion to the deck. My version of the deck adds in the Kitchen Finks/Viscera Seer combo, and the Devoted Druid/Vizier of Remedies combo, instead of focusing on the lifegain theme of other Heliod, Sun-Crowned decks. The addition of Glittering Wish makes it so much more consistent as a combo deck as well.

This new version of the deck I'm playing with has Sanctum Prelate as a backup almost playset to help the deck keep moving. Still messing with the numbers of each card, and seeing what I like.

Planning on writing a brand new deck description soon. But thanks for the kind words, and I definitely suggest playtesting it a bit yourself, the deck has been so much fun! :D

I actually just made an Amalia Combo deck recently here, focusing more on lifegain rather than explore.

Have you considered Voice of the Blessed or Heliod, Sun-Crowned, as they both will survive Amalias nuke. Requires more lifegain for them to work properly but I think still an ok choice in this deck

So after thinking about it for a bit, I think the most powerful and consistent wincon for this Commander might he Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista.

If someone counters or removes either piece of the combo, you can make a copy of Heliod with your Commander & grab Walking Ballista from the graveyard with spells like Eternal Witness, Regrowth, Reclaim or Noxious Revival.

Pull from Eternity is a 1-drop, so it wins that slot choice lol. I forgot to mention Cloudshift & Sevinne's Reclamation in my previous comments, but they are also pretty good with your Commander.

Combos:

Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista = infinite damage Living Plane + Doomwake Giant = all opponents lands are destroyed (does not target)

I like the list, but if you want easier combos Heliod, Sun-Crowned is a great card to start with if you wanna upgrade the deck. Tutors are used to make a deck win faster because they function as any card for an extra mana cost, usually finding your combo piece for a win. The more tutors you add the simpler the deck becomes making it much more consistent.

So if you wanna make Ghave a stronger commander I'd recommend adding at least a few tutors if you really wanna throw some money at the deck.

Skullclamp and Moldervine Reclamation adds card draw out the wazoo

Any "on death" pingers like Zulaport Cutthroat, Bastion of Remembrance, Blood Artist could add some value, The deck is practically Selesnya colored so making more use of out black could make the deck more fun even imo
