Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants Discussion

Why do you play Settle the Wreckage in an aggro deck in the main board? I don't see many turn 4 where you want to play nothing and wait for a settle. Without Ajani's Pridemate , Squire's Devotion is far from optimal and does not really help your gameplan, on turn 3.

Since this deck is aggro, your turn 3 and 4 plays must be game changing, else you will run out of gas against any control / mid range deck.

I'd say - 4 Squire's Devotion for + 4 History of Benalia , - 2 Settle the Wreckage for + 1 Gideon Blackblade and +1 Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants .

This Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and Gird for Battle are nice for white +P/+T creature counters

If you want to be able to consistently cast Benalish Marshal , you're going to have to make sure all of your lands tap for white mana. Unclaimed Territory & Godless Shrine can help with that. Since this will also make casting Murder more difficult, I'd replace it with Conclave Tribunal . I'd say it's an upgrade over Murder as it also helps you get the City's Blessing. Mortify is better than Murder as well. Midnight Reaper is probably the best Knight you don't currently have in your deck, I'd recommend finding room for him.

For your sideboard; Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants & Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip are good options for Control which will be a tough match up for you.

Your list just seems to be all over the place - a few cards from a pod deck, a look at Ooze, 1 or 2 cards that you can adapt and a bit of proliferate. Unfortunately I just can't see this mis-matched set of cards working together. Yes, +1/+1 tokens do well with proliferate, but you first have to get tokens on the field before you proliferate.

Your are looking for synergy between cards - Biomancer's Familiar allows you to adapt creatures multiple times and also makes it cheaper to adapt. Growth-Chamber Guardian quickly becomes a powerful creature and searches for copies of himself. Incubation Druid , with Biomancer's Familiar provides the mana to put 3 +1/+1 tokens on himself each turn. Hadana's Climb  Flip adds tokens and partners well with Mowu, Loyal Companion . These cards get the tokens flowing so you want 4 of each.

Once you have this base, you can play around with options Simic Ascendancy to feed off tokens for a win-con is a great option. 1 or 2 Galloping Lizrog can be nice if you can fit them in. Evolution Sage will have you proliferating for free on most turns. Path of Discovery , Pollenbright Druid and Roalesk, Apex Hybrid all fit into the theme and generate counters. You could go creature-heavy, adding some of these to your base, or 2 Ajani, the Greathearted and 2 Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants could boost your token generating options.

A mix of Dive Down , Growth Spiral , Stealth Mission and Wilderness Reclamation finish off the deck.

You deck contains a long list of other very good cards that just add nothing to this deck.

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants puts counters on things and also gets a bonus from Atraxa's proliferating, Gavony Township is very strong, Genesis Hydra is a favorite of mine in any deck and it gets an added bonus here, and Godsend is a very strong card for any deck that wants to attack with something big.

-Arcanity- The reason I mention Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is because his first 2 abilities go very will your deck. +1 gives counters power up small creatures like the tokens from Seraph of the Scales and his -2 brings a creature with mana cost 2 or less back to battlefield which your deck is mostly consistent of. His ultimate is pretty good for life gain and I’ve found it works very good with Ethereal Absolution . Also point taken on the angel, it is a bit slow.
