Soul Sisters (Sky Monument)

Modern Aggro Competitive Lifegain Mono-White Tokens

Enral


Description

Introduction

This is my take on modern Monument Soul Sisters. I have opted to add a robust card draw engine via Sky Hussar and generating tokens via Oketra's Monument. The synergy between the soul sisters, Archangel of Thune, and Oketra's Monument is strong that it is usually game ending when they get resolved unanswered. Pre-sideboard, the plan is to go all out on the aggro plan as fast as I can. If I have Oketra's Monument out by turn 3, I can usually have lethal by turn 5 if I have Archangel of Thune on turn 4 and at least three soul sisters on the battlefield uninterrupted.

Ideal Gameplay

Sideboarding

My sideboard is dedicated to combating this deck's combo weakness as it has a relatively great matchup against aggro/midrange/burn. Disenchant usually gets boarded in for decks that I suspect uses Ensnaring Bridge/Engineered Explosives. Detention Sphere is a good catch all for any other problematic non-land permanents. Leyline of Sanctity protects against discard and storm. Rest in Peace is great against storm too as well as a slew of other decks that uses the graveyard. Stony Silence comes in for affinity in addition to Disenchant and Detention Sphere as a fast affinity deck usually makes it hard for me to get back into the game.

Matchups Show

  • Sky Hussar: My card draw engine using soul sisters (which usually doesn't attack) or tokens to draw an additional card each turn. Late game, I can hard cast it for another evasive beater to finisher up the game.

  • Archangel of Thune: I am playing a full playset to maximize the chance of drawing into it. It combos with an early Oketra's Monument to be able to come down by turn 4.

  • Oketra's Monument: Another token generation to fuel the life gain engine as well as making the more expensive creatures cheaper. Tokens generated also contributes to the Sky Hussar draw engine.
