I felt Twinblade Paladin was good enough for deck. Click here check it out, upvote it, criticize it, and make suggestions. I'm not totally sure that this is how it should be built. But I'm happy with it. I hope you guys enjoy the list.

I'm struggling to build the Undead Augur good enough for me to release it to the compendium. But when it's ready of course I'll post it here first.

You should try Crush Contraband instead of Blessed Light and maybe Ajani's Pridemate or Twinblade Paladin instead of your eldrazi to get a cheaper finisher

Ajani's Welcome to gain life at your creatures entering and a 1 mana drop. Ajani, Strength of the Pride since you have a lot of low mana creatures. The plus one will give you hella health, and his -2 gives you more Pridemates. His 0 is a boardwipe when you have 15 more life than your starting, which is pretty damn good for your deck. Twinblade Paladin is similar to pridemate but costs more, but in return is able to get Doublestrike too. If you find that you end up top decking a lot, Dawn of Hope would allow you to consistently draw. If you are against a creature heavy or Haste deck, Authority of the Consuls is pretty good.

I think you should cut Twinblade Paladin sometimes it's difficult to reach 25 life points ;) You should maybe try Gideon's Company and if you want double strike maybe go for Mirran Crusader. Oketra's Monument could be useful as it creates tokens and reduce the cost of white spells. Gideon Blackblade is useful too so maybe in the sideboard ? and you should also consider Lurrus of the Dream-Den since half of your creatures cost 2 mana or less.

I only know of four cards that directly work similar to those, being Angel of Vitality, Felidar Sovereign, Serra Ascendant, and Twinblade Paladin (only in a precon, despite being great!) and I honestly think they should be changed in the rules. Way too easy to abuse in a deck like Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, which didn't need more abusive cards In my opinion xD!

So you've chosen mono-white, traditionally seen as a weaker colour in EDH thanks to a lack of ramp and draw. But not does it gain life, and you can work with that! First up, some creatures that care about lifegain (if you're not going full stax you'll need decent bodies to block and close out the game if your win-cons get removed): Ajani's Pridemate; Angel of Vitality; Archangel of Thune; Gideon's Company; Heliod, Sun-Crowned; Serene Steward; Serra Ascendant; Serra Avatar or Twinblade Paladin are all decent at this while Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Sun Titan are staples for a reason. I'm not convinced by the Runes, they're cool but a completely dead draw if your opponents aren't playing that colour. Other options might be Ajani's Welcome, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Crackdown; Cradle of Vitality, Dawn of Hope; Path of Bravery; Smothering Tithe and Sunbond. The Reservoir is one of your best ways to win, so being able to search it up with Enlightened Tutor or the more budget Inventors' Fair and Tamiyo's Journal would be good. Other cards that might be good inclusions would be a wrath or two; Tithe/Land Tax; Debt of Loyalty; Lapse of Certainty; Selfless Squire; Rebuff the Wicked; Voidstone Gargoyle; Generous Gift; Emeria Shepherd; Exile and maybe some of the many Ajanis, Elspeths or Gideons. Finally, I reckon that 35 lands may even be a few too many, especially as most of them are basics. Might be worth cutting down to 30 and looking for some utility in cyclers/Emeria, The Sky Ruin/Detection Tower/Evolving Wilds etc. Could probably trade Path of Ancestry away too - it doesn't do much for you but is actually quite valuable!

Hey rdh_202. Ajani's Pridemate is the main beneficiary of the lifegain in this deck. As far as cats go, Ajani, Strength of the Pride is the only other option. Other things at the more budget end would be Cradle of Vitality and Sunbond . If you move up a couple of bucks, there's Dawn of Hope , Gideon's Company , Twinblade Paladin .
