Lightning Helix would probably be better over Incinerate or Guerrilla Tactics. Might move the Incinerates/Tactics to the sideboard in case you run into regeneration creatures or hand disruption. While it's a cool survival tactic, you might not see a Wall of Hope to run Prismatic Strands with and you've only got the 4 creatures. I think the reversal cards are fun, but at a certain point it's better to just kill the opponent than live longer so Life Burst is another option to swap out rather than the Incinerates. You're also running a bunch of low cost instants, but have no way of refilling your hand. White struggles with that outside of EDH (which is why its game plan is on stalling or tax) but red has tons of options to refill the hand in Legacy.

But if you're intent on running so much lifegain Felidar Sovereign or Test of Endurance might be an alternate wincon for you but if Storm and spellslinging is of greater interest to you, you might consider Angel's Grace and Near-Death Experience over all the lifegain. If just being an annoying opponent to face in Red/White is the goal, keep the protection cards and instead slap in some Gideon of the Trials in there.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!

I ended up cutting a ton of Flashback cards from the deck honestly, as well as a few escape ones. They do make a spirit, but they ended up being a little less impactful than I liked. However, Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants might make their way back in.

I think while I do have a few humans, 7 may be a few too low. If I was running more hatebears like Drannith Magistrate I would maybe reconsider human tribal cards.

I didn't realize Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan but it appears you're right! Good call!

For another sac outlet I've been toying with Martyr's Cause , and I think I'll add it back in. It gives good protection to us from X spells or just damage based removal as well. It doesn't make the Angelic Titan combo win, but Altar of Dementia / Goblin Bombardment should be fine with that.

Pheonix subthemes sound pretty fun actually! Rekindling seems really good especially.

That's all really helpful! Thank you so much!

I'm not sure how exactly Quin plays yet, but I'm trying to come up with something with him too so I'll throw some cards I thought were interesting at you. Sentinel's Eyes seems decent, with Quin out it gives you two 3/2s for , which is pretty good. Battle Screech is just a generally strong tokens card so it fits with the token support, but also gives you a 3/2 (for free!). Same with Increasing Devotion , although thats definitely a lower power level just because of the mana cost. Prismatic Strands / Rally the Peasants are both also pretty strong cards that also will just throw in a 3/2 with Quin.

You have quite a few humans, so maybe throw in Bruna, the Fading Light  Flip, and if you want to meld, Gisela, the Broken Blade ? Bruna's solid on her own, but I might just be biased because I love meld. Angel of Glory's Rise too, depending on how many humans you end up with. You could also play things like Resurrection and Breath of Life , or even Gate to the Afterlife / God-Pharaoh's Gift . Angelic Renewal goes infinite with Sun Titan and a sac outlet, which you should probably have at least one more of. Ashnod's Altar is the go too, but I think its pretty expensive nowadays, so maybe Blasting Station , Dark-Dweller Oracle , or Grafted Exoskeleton

A bunch of the phoenixes seem decent, since they always return. I think the best ones would be Flamewake Phoenix , Rekindling Phoenix , and Skyfire Phoenix . Flamewake seems great since with Quin your spirits activate ferocious, the others I'd be more skeptical about.

Well I hope that's at least somewhat helpful lol

FrankieG - yeah good point about Foil and Fireblast . Im coming from the point of view of PDH where foil gets a lot more play than Fireblast does. Ill add a section for free flashback costs and things like Battle Screech and Prismatic Strands

What about Prismatic Strands and stuff like that? Those ones actually see play (unlike Foil , but not unlike Fireblast which is below it on the list)!

Sooo i would cut Captain of the Watch down to two, Akroma's Memorial completely out, True Conviction down to one, Honor of the Pure down to three, Spare from Evil down to three, Gift of Estates completely out, Slayer of the Wicked down to three, Circle of Protection: Black exchange for Prismatic Strands and also down to three. You can dash in 4 plains for that and stil have 11 slots left for nice creatures or spells.

Some would be Raise the Alarm Soul Warden

i would take out Lone Missionary for Veteran Armorer or Lumithread Field to protect your creatures form Electrickery . Cut a Mourning Thrull , a Soul Warden OR a Soul's Attendant and a Plains for 3x Night's Whisper , you are going to need the card draw. Replace the Castigate with Harsh Sustenance or Unmake.

sideboard:

Take out Shadowfeed and put in Beckon Apparition , i think it will synergies with with the soul sisters and Edge of the Divinity by giving you a white/black creature token. take out Nihil Spellbomb for Relic of Progenitus , trade out the Swamp in the sideboard for a Bojuka Bog or 2x by taking out 1x Bonesplitter . Replace the Castigate and Disenchant with 3x Standard Bearer.

maybeboard:

Crimson Acolyte , Obsidian Acolyte , Prismatic Strands , Battle Screech , Rune of Protection: Red , Rune of Protection: Green , Epicure of Blood , Oblivion Ring

sorry about the last post with no hyperlinks to the card names. i am new
