lol yup legendofa you did apparently have the fog itch awhile back and I commented on that thread too lol. The Solitary Confinement route really seems unique/fun/risky to build around (I love it)... and Martyr of Sands just seems genius wallisface THE CONCEPT OF That build looks neat!

I think I agree with nbarry223 with taking a liking to the scepter/spell route...the utility of spells like Blessed Respite/Dawn Charm have a lot of appeal to me... but i could just be having a case of "the grass is greener on the other side" going on because I own all to 1-2mv/cmc spells i could want for Isochron Scepter but tempted by the new hotness that Abiding Grace offers but im not exactly sure if its "better" or not.

A few notes

Mono white lifegain payoffs are limitedly effective unless you go with Aetherflux Reservoir they require combat.

Cards to look at. I didn't look into budget tbh. But a few could maybe fit.

Martyr of Sands tons of life t1/2

On Thin Ice if you go to snow lands and play this.

Serra Ascendant 1 mana 66

Mikaeus, the Lunarch xx creature also buffs the team.

Containment Priest spicy sideboard card

Righteous Valkyrie lifegain payoff

Voice of the Blessed lifegain payoff

I finally got back around to updating this list. Bulldawg I looked through my backstock and found a couple of Martyr of Sands I squeezed em in there and am gonna see how she plays out. I did end up dropping out the infinite combo in favor of more focus on sisters and angels and lifegain. Thanks again for the help!

no Serra Ascendant? too pricey or just over looked? also Martyr of Sands will help you facilitate that early life boost. i think you could do without Tamiyo's Safekeeping and Patch Up if you decide to go this alternative route.

i think you need to toss Scurry Oak for Martyr of Sands this can elevate your life total super quickly and get Serra Ascendant up in the air.

Bravo_Christian this deck is kinda all over the place with what its looking to accomplish. you have 6 drops and are running tapped AND bounce lands that dont really do a whole lot until the following turn. Even those big drops dont win you the game when they do finally get played. I would consider a more succinct plan. Soul sisters do well when their life total gets above 30 and if your plan is to stay above 30 and then ground and pound, i would focus on that.

Martyr of Sands and Serra Ascendant are cheap cards that can help you accomplish that goal. cut your super expensive planeswalkers as they dont help you win right when they hit and are causing a huge burden on your mana base. planeswalkers are fine, i personally love them, but if they arent an immediate threat then your opponent isnt going to care about them and they didnt really do anything anyway.

i would say if youre absolutely hellbent on playing planeswalkers than pick some that are a cheaper and more effective. such as Ajani, Caller of the Pride or Ajani, Strength of the Pride or even Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and then you can compliment him with a planewalker thats going to pump out creature tokens like Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis. I think your curve should max at out 4 and in order to play your cards effectively youre going to need to run atleast 24 lands. i also think Brimaz, King of Oreskos could help with the gameplan, hes a big body with vigilance and puts more creatures out.

i apologize if this came off as harsh, i just think youll have a more fun, more effective time being able to cast efficient and effective spells during your games. hope this helps a little bit.

have you considered Martyr of Sands it gives a good jump, and also goes well with Serra Ascendant which is really the only creature worth running life gain for.

That being said, Nebechadnezzar I like the inclusion of Peer into the Abyss and also Cadaverous Bloom seems sweet. I will have to try that out!! Proccing a Martyr of Sands after a nasty Ad Nauseam rip to gain a shitload of life and draw the rest of the deck is nutty. I play Sickening Dreams in my list too, Cadaverous Bloom will enable me to play Sickening dreams or any X spell, its giving me ideas!!
