I've been itching to build a deck heavily based around lifegain, but also a tribal deck. And Clerics are up both those alleys.

Its a hodgepodge mix of reanimator, aristocrats, and lifegain. The Soul Sisters, Elas il-Kor Angel of Destiny, Righteous and Aetherflux keeps our life totals high, while Yawgmoth, Taborax, Phyrexian Arena, Black Market Connections, and Aetherflux lets us spend that life if we have no need to stockpile it. There's also an option to go on the offensive, with Minthara, Ravos, Etchings of the Chosen, Valkyrie, and Shadow-Rite Priest buffing our team. Choose your pick of one of three targets of worship- Razaketh the Foulblooded for the diabolically inclined, Athreos, God of Passage for those simply doing their duties, or Liesa, Forgotten Angel for those who seek the divine.

Win in the less efficient way by smashing face with our buffers, by blasting people with Aetherflux Reservoir, or one of our infinite combos. Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Hoarder can set up an infinite loop to trigger our ETB lifegains infinitely to feed into Aetherflux, or kill everyone with Elas with the death triggers. And for our second and last combo, Sanguine Bond/Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose + Exquisite Blood can infinitely drain out an opponent one at a time (be sure to trigger it again for other players).
