Hello Fellow Planeswalkers! I am DMFF. I love card games. I began playing card games with the Pokémon TCG in December 1998 and that only lit the fiery passion for cards into the future. I was given a Magic: the Gathering pack sometime in 2000 by my Mom who overheard me talking about the game with some friends. I cannot remember what my rare from my Invasion pack was, but I still have the Opt in NM condition that I pulled from that pack to this very day! My friends at that time also gave me a bunch of cards, so I began playing this wonderful game. I remember seeing Counterspell within the pile I was given, reading what it did and finally being truly amazed that I could play a card that told my opponents "No!". Plus, I found the raw power of Lightning Bolt and Fireball way too amazing to pass up. In early 2002, Yu-Gi-Oh came out and I received my first Starter deck and my first pack which contained a Secret Rare Gaia the Dragon Champion. I was officially hooked on all these wonderful TCGs! Magic and Yu-Gi-Oh are my two most favorite card games to play, collect and talk about with the community.

I love to build decks within all the colors. As I grow in age, so does my appreciation of all the colors, formats and deck archetypes. I mainly play Modern and EDH, but very much enjoy prerelease, draft (cube or from a draft box), block constructed and even Oldschool 93/94 when I get the rare chance! I haven't played Standard or Extended since 2009 during OG Zendikar Block and I never plan to return to Standard. Modern is my main home and where most of my knowledge lies. I create many decks on this site and would love it if you stop by and check them out! Maybe even spark a conversation!

Firstly, welcome to the MTG community! Modern is definitely a more hostile format, but Soul Sisters can hold their own, especially in Orzhov. One of my close friends in my "close friends playgroup" built his own rendition of Orzhov Soul Sisters as well and it can certainly give any aggro deck a run for its money. Since Lifegain is more of a Control-esque strategy, I do have a few suggestions for your main and side:

Main: - Fatal Push, Solitude (ik a little more expensive, but so so good), or Path to Exile for cheap/"free" removal of onboard threats. I would cut 2-3 copies of March of Otherworldly Light since it requires more resources, but can be great in the mid/late game.

  • Guide of Souls, the new Soul Brother! (It could be called Soul Siblings!) This card is a more powerful version of the Soul Sisters, so I definitely recommend running 4x of this card once it drops in MH3. I would drop the 4x Auriok Champion for this due to the lower mana cost and higher power level.

  • Thoughtseize is a great handrip card and the -2 life is barely noticeable in your build. Until you pick up any copies, I would move Inquisition of Kozilek into your main board for better control and knowledge of your opponent's gameplan right from game 1. I would also suggest a combination of both of these cards in your mainboard to equal 6 total. My wife runs 3 of each in her own rendition of the meta Yawgmoth deck.

  • I would cut the Ghost Quarters for Field of Ruin, reduce them to 2 or 3 copies and move them to your mainboard, cutting some basic lands. My wife actually runs this in her mainboard to mess with greedy manabases to great success.

Side: - Having both Sanctifier en-Vec & Rest in Peace is a bit redundant. I would personally cut them both and replace with 3 or 4 Leyline of the Void to have a good chance of hurting Graveyard strategies before turn 1 even starts. Keep all the Surgical Extractions in though because it is great targeted GY removal that can outright cripple decks.

Hopefully this will be helpful for you, let me know if you have any questions!
