I like the addition of Heliod-themed cards to the deck, those are very flavorful and will make any match you play with the deck better in my opinion.

Also, welcome to MTG! Take off your cloak and stay awhile!

I do think you could want a couple of cards for your deck under the lines of Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Ajani's Welcome, and Suture Priest.

So far, your deck has a decent setup, but there isn't a lot holding it together in terms of gameplan besides small creature tribal.

If you want, I can go to my computer and give a full analysis of your deck, including possible replacements for cards you have and looking at what each card can do for your gameplan. :3

Epicurus on Licia Sanguine Tribal

You already have a gigantic maybe board. Let me add a couple more things to it.

Authority of the Consuls slows down your opponents, and adds to your lifegain theme.

Peach Garden Oath, but only if you regularly find yourself accruing a large amount of commander tax. In most cases, it'll make Licia really easy to recast, no matter how much tax you have to pay.

Aetherflux Reservoir should be in every deck that gains a lot of life, if only as a wincon when you're down to one opponent.

Heliod's Intervention in my opinion is just a very good card regardless, but works very well with what you have going here.

Well of Lost Dreams should be in every deck that regularly gains life.

Any other suggestions I might have would detract from thematic elements of the deck, so I'll keep them to myself. Though I might add that Suture Priest, while not being a vampire, certainly feels like he'd hang out with these guys. And Vedalken Orrery might help, since you aren't running very many instants.

That's all I got. Cheers!

You might want a Reviving Melody. Suture Priest works too, if you can afford the white.

BigBadE on Killing by giving opponents "positive" …

psionictemplar: Yes! That's a great card and fits the theme very well, thanks for the suggestion

enpc: I didn't specify a color boundary cause it's 5 color, Blim is just a card in the deck (same with Zedruu the Greathearted). Forced Fruition is a great one, but I want to see if I can completely kill opponents with their own effects, I know there are cards that damage opponents when their creatures die or when they discard cards but I want to see if there are any that damage you (kill them only by giving them cards). If it isn't possible I'll probably use Suture Priest, but mill seems viable right now.

TypicalTimmy: you can subscribe to threads without having to comment on them. There's a "Subscribe" button which does just that.

BigBadE: I think if you're going to build a 'killing them with kindness" deck then you're going to struggle if you limit yourself to black/red (assuming you're using Blim as commander). There are cards like Forced Fruition which can drown your opponents in cards. You can also look into cards like Suture Priest and Hunted Troll (i.e. giving your opponents creatures which then kills them).

many years ago, I played against a deck (it was 60 card multiplayer, not commander) which used Endless Whispers with cards like Bronze Bombshell and Phage the Untouchable to win the game. You could look into effects like that as well if it were what you're after.

golgarigirl on Life Gain Voltron (Trelasarra)

I always loved Trelissara's design. Sadly, my lifegain deck is Esper, so she didn't really fit! I don't know if this helps at all, but I think of my deck in terms of lifegain enablers (our Soul Warden and friends that gain us life) and payoffs (things that benefit us when we gain life, like Trudge Garden).

I would pay special attention to one thing with life gain payoffs: a lot of the cards care about one of 2 things...either 'instance of life gain' (the ones worded 'whenever'...they do not care how much life you gain, just if you do or not), and the ones that care about quantity (the ones worded 'if you gained X or more life).

You're going to want to sculpt your life gain enablers in the deck around what of those you have, and how much life gain they want you to have in a turn, to make sure they can hit your X.

I would consider that a little more next time you play, pay attention to what cards want what effects.

For example, my deck is built entirely around the 'instance of life gain effects', so I seldom need to worry about how much I gain.

That said, some weak spots I noticed: Benevolent Bodyguard, Ilysian Caryatid, Soulmender, From Beyond, Indomitable Might, Hedgewitch's Mask. These are excellent places to start with upgrades! They're not bad on their own, but we can do better!

Note on Aetherflux Reservoir: There are some playgroups that playing this will just get you ganged up on. I always caution people about that. If that's fine with you, it's a strong card. I didn't find it could gain enough life to make it worth it in my deck.

Some possible (not too expensive) upgrades that I enjoy:

Good in an 'instance of life gain' deck: Linden, the Steadfast Queen, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest, Gideon's Company, Twinblade Paladin, Omen of the Sun, Ajani's Pridemate, Oketra's Monument, Regna, the Redeemer

Good in a 'gain X or more life' deck: Nykthos Paragon, Gideon Blackblade

Good in both: Dusk / Dawn, Austere Command, Dawn of Hope, Shamanic Revelation

Nice work so far! I’ve been looking at a more combo plan, with Defense of the Heart or Pod effects that should put 2 exile target creature effects on board to create a loop with Lagrella. From there I’m looking for creatures that check etbs that end the game. There’s Sage's Row Denizen, Radiant Solar, Suture Priest, Altar of the Brood. Of course there are lots of infinite life creatures but that doesn’t win you the game. The other slots are probably going to be value pieces and interaction, seeing as we’re going for a creature combo win green’s creature tutors should get us there. White’s stax should slow the faster decks, while blue gives us necessary protection. One big problem is the lack of card advantage in the command zone so we’ll have to dedicate more slots for engines.
