Sounds fun. I'm not sure which ones to take out, Children of Korlis Buy and Renewed Faith Buy seem like some of the better ones though. Good luck!

Whats up ninja. I love were this deck is headed and all I get out of it is 1.Mass Calcify I was thinking about it and it costs way to much by the time your opponent has the power to kill it would be to late. 2.Land Tax dont really see the need though the deck is high cost. Thran Dynamo costs to much for the mana it gives you.

I'm not sure how much help this will be as I haven't played anything outside of T2, but I would suggest dropping a lot of your single-use spells including Feudkiller's Verdict Buy, Heroes Remembered Buy, Life Burst Buy, Renewed Faith Buy, and Soothing Balm[/calm]. I'd run only one copy of [card]Beacon of Immortality, or none at all.

I would also drop Panoptic Mirror Buy and Thran Dynamo Buy. I'm not too crazy about Well of Lost Dreams Buy, but if it generates any kind of advantage, keep it.

If you drop all of the above cards except for a single copy of Beacon and both Wells, that frees up 20 card slots, bringing your total down to 56.

I would also sideboard Disenchant Buy, making the count 53.

Also, Cradle of Vitality Buy is an indirect win condition and Test of Endurance Buy is a direct win condition. You should be running a full playset of one or both. I would go with Endurance and drop Cradle. Current Total: 55

Prison Term Buy is superior to Pacifism Buy, so I would swap there. I'd drop both Boon Reflection Buy copies for another Faith's Fetters Buy and another Oblivion Ring Buy.

There are also standard life gain cards you could use like Knight of Meadowgrain Buy and Kitchen Finks Buy.

All of this aside, I would check your mana base as it looks like you're running a ton of expensive cards. If that's the case, often your opponent will have generated too much advantage before your card interactions kick in, and you'll lose the game because you can't recover. Good luck and I hope this helped.

I don't see a lot of life-gain decks around, so kudos for that!

I don't know what this looks like in action, but the idea seems solid. May seem vulnerable to control.

It looks very promising. Here are some cards to consider to boost your life gain:
Ajani Goldmane Buy
Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant Buy
Kitchen Finks Buy
Voracious Hatchling Buy
and maybe some more enchantments like:
Righteous Cause Buy
Noble Purpose Buy
and some more Boon Reflection Buy

thanx for the post. I am personally a big fan of beacon of immortality, and test of endurance. I also suggest putting in ajani goldmane, and some swords to plowshares are always good for dealing with your opponents creatures, or, in a pinch, giving you a little extra life (can be helpful with test of endurance in play)

Take out Cradle of Vitality Buy - your deck isn't about pumping your creatures, but about lifegain.

Test of Endurance Buy is a cheap win, but if your building a lifegain deck you need more than just "have lots of life" as your win condition.

I would also add a couple of Celestial Convergence Buy and Idyllic Tutor Buy to pull your enchantments.

yes test of endurance does need to be back in. and i don't like Cradle of Vitality. i don't see it being useful. i would get rid of Soothing Balm, Beacon of Immortality, and i would put disenchant in the side board. with those mods the deck will be down to 63 cards. i think i would pull 6 more cards and add 3 lands. i hope that i can be of some help to you.

A few more life gain cards i would suggest would be shadowfeed, lox war hammer, nip gwyllion, the b/w hatching, and maybe consume spirit.
the main problem i would see is a lack of heavy hitters, so definitely the war hammers, and possibly armored ascension.
