gumbogogo, I completely missed/overlooked Righteous Valkyrie . One; it's easier to cast than Resplendent Marshal and two; it takes advantage of toughness lifegain with its buff and pairing with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose . Skyclave Cleric  Flip just wasn't something I was really considering, but I do see its merit over Dream Devourer and its synergy with other cards. I did have Agadeem's Awakening  Flip in the first draft of this build, but didn't think it was all that necessary when trying to update it with Kaldheim.

Alimon238 it's an interesting idea. You could use cards like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Serra Ascendant but I would rather the deck build up life to go for an all out KO with Bolas's Citadel . That being said I have never made a life gain and drain deck. I might not be the best person to ask. If you have a list put together link it here and I'll check it out.

One thing I would recommend is possibly less support cards, I know it sounds weird but with my life gain deck usually if I can get more on the board that can synergize I have better outcomes than if I'm able to counter other things. Mortify is really good for big threats and its cheap. Bloodbond Vampire Ive used in mine before and with the life gain it just gets crazy buffed and would work really well with your vampires, and finally Bolas's Citadel is absolutely amazing with life gain/drain stuff life this, its a little mana expensive but if you can get it out and play five or ten cards and still be above your starting total or even going crazy low with it to trigger abilities and possibly win the turn you play it. I really like your deck though and I took your advise with the Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and that seems to work a lot better and same with the Defiant Bloodlord

I would add Angel of Destiny to the maindeck because some of these cards just pump out lifegain. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is another great way to win off of lifegain. I also might take out some of the cards that don't have too much synergy, like The Birth of Meletis , Inscription of Ruin , and Foulmire Knight . I would say Mazemind Tome , but it is very good in any deck, and the lifegain makes it better.

I am working on a similar deck. Maybe we can help each other out.
I wouldn't run 4 Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , I think 3 is enough for a legendary.
Defiant Bloodlord seems too expensive at 7 mana Some cards I like are Tithe Drinker and Cleric of Life's Bond , check them out.
Please comment your ideas at my deck list too!

Hey Grind, thanks for your comment. I used to have it in the deck but found it too expensive. As the deck isn't really interested in creatures, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is the much better option.

Thanks, its a reanimator deck focused on card draw through graveyard hate, reanimating with Reaping the Graves and winning with cards and combos like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose + storming off with Tendrils of Agony and either Burnt Offering or Culling the Weak on Serrated Scorpion or Blood Pet to generate more storm count and mana. It has ways to deal with hexproof or shroud with Innocent Blood and normal removal with Bloodchief's Thirst
