If its themed Lifegain why not add some Heliod, Sun-Crowned? his habilities can be used even if he is not a creature.

You can also consider Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord it gives lifelink to your creatures during your turn, and you can bring back some dead, remember that you can even bring Heliod from the dead, cause when hes not in the battlefield he always count as a creature.

Instead of Murder you could consider Mortify , does the same and has range for enchantments.

Despark is a great cart to consider aswell, it removes from the game anything costing 4 or more at instant speed (great response to a Embercleave/The Great Henge, Questing Beast or any of the expensive Gods).

Your mana base could also get a fix, for that Godless Shrine, Temple of Silence, Scoured Barrens can help immensely.

You could also take a look for the Eldraine utility lands Castle Locthwain, Castle Locthwain.

Oh, and your lands need fixing. Drop Temple of Silence and a few copies of Scoured Barrens . Tapped lands are horrible in any format. Drop a copy or two of Castle Locthwain as well, since you won't be using it often. Basically, stick to basics more and you'll have success.

Hello guys! I've played MtG now for a while casually and mostly with my friends and a few time at my local card store in official Mtg event. I was able to win a few rounds but of course lost all the games (BO3). Winning those few rounds gave me massive motivation boost to became a better Mtg player, now i am writing this thread to ask help from more experienced players:

I am using following list: Creatures: 4x Ajani's Pridemate 4x Basilica Bell-Haunt 4x Bloodthirsty Aerialist 2x Doom Whisperer 3x Murderous Rider 4x Vampire of the Dire Moon

Instant: 2x Mortify

Land: 6x Plains 6x Swamp 1x Castle Ardenvale 1x Castle Locthwain 4x Scoured Barrens 4x Temple of Silence

Sorcery: 1x Kaya's Wrath

Enchantment: 2x Dawn of Hope 4x Dreadhorde Invasion 3x Oath of Kaya

Planeswalker: 1x Ajani, Strength of the Pride 1x Kaya, Orzhov Usurper 3x Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

I would love to get some improvement ideas and cards for my main deck. I am ready to invest some money (but not too much since i am a poor student).

Also at the moment i don't have any sideboard, I am not sure how I should created it vs my main deck. I have been thinking maybe Prison Realm or Finale of Glory but i don't know what to cut.

All the help is greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much!

ps. Please be kind this is my first post. :)

Cheap cards u should get some amount of:

General value goodstuff:

Bloodsoaked Champion

Grim Haruspex

Midnight Reaper

Ophiomancer

Zulaport Cutthroat

Westvale Abbey  Flip (you're gonna love this one, it's especially good if you like having token generators)

Skullclamp (probably the most powerful equipment in the game. And drawing cards is fucking awesome)

Removal:

Swords to Plowshares

Plaguecrafter

Kaya's Wrath

Anguished Unmaking

Grave Pact

Reanimation (very good when you're actively putting cards from your deck into your graveyard):

Dread Return

Karmic Guide

Reveillark

Phyrexian Delver

Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip

Victimize

Animate Dead

Sac outlets:

Viscera Seer

Carrion Feeder

Cartel Aristocrat

Yahenni, Undying Partisan

High Market

Tutors:

Ranger of Eos

Diabolic Intent

Enlightened Tutor

Beseech the Queen

Dark Petition

Mausoleum Secrets (very cool in your deck)

Lands:

Orzhov Basilica

Scoured Barrens

Concealed Courtyard

Command Tower

Caves of Koilos

City of Brass

Isolated Chapel

Tainted Field

You should probably choose whether you want the deck to be more or less focused on tokens. If you don't want tokens to be a main theme, you should probably just run Ophiomancer and a couple other generators and put in more reanimation effects like Phyrexian Delver .

You should still run Karmic Guide and Reveillark no matter what you do because they're too good not to. With a sac outlet, you can sacrifice them and bring them back an infinite number of times and kill your opponents with Komrade.

I would run quite a few sac outlets to make sure you can keep sacrificing your stuff for value. The best ones are Viscera Seer , Carrion Feeder and Cartel Aristocrat . Skullclamp works especially well with sac outlets

I think Irregular Cohort is better than Sunspire Gatekeepers in a deck like this, as you don't need to run Orzhov Guildgate any more to produce the 2/2 it creates. You could probably just run a mix of Scoured Barrens and Orzhov Basilica to replace them.

Also, you kind of need a sideboard, so I'll provide some suggestions for that:

Castigate and Duress : useful for Tron, combo decks, any deck in which you need to tear a card out of your opponent's hand

Crypt Incursion / Relic of Progenitus : Graveyard hate.

Disenchant / Fragmentize : Artifacts. Enchantments.
