  • I'd replace Karametra's Favor with Cryptolith Rite . Sure, you won't be able to draw a card, but you'll get a lot more use out of it.

  • A land suggestion would be Grove of the Guardian . Late game, it gets you an 8/8.

  • I'd replace Harmonize with Idol of Oblivion . It's kind of a risk-reward thing, but if it lasts till late game you can get a 10/10

  • While Beast Attack is nice due it being an instant, Trumpeting Herd is a lot better. Beast Attack gives you 8 power and toughness for 10 mana, while Trumpeting Herd gives you 6 power and toughness for 4 mana.

  • If you'd like, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is a great Token generator, but it takes 4-5 turns to get the emblem, depending on if you want to keep him or not. His +1 is nice, and his -2 can be alright.

landofMordor on H:Cash, W:Your Rotating Standard cards!

Look, we all know that once Eldraine comes out, cards that used to be staples will be worth pennies. I'd like to pick up some rotating cards for Cube, so I'm proposing a win-win deal -- I'll buy your cards for slightly cheaper than they're worth now, but relative to their post-rotation prices you'll be turning a profit too.

Here's my biggest wants (although the prices are negotiable):

Lyra Dawnbringer - $3

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants - $2

History of Benalia - $.75

Legion's Landing  Flip - $.5

Carnage Tyrant - $4

Tezzeret, Artifice Master - $3

Hostage Taker - $.5

I'm pretty sure this is a better deal than you'd get at your LGS, especially once rotation hits. I'm also willing to look through binders or current Standard decks to make up an offer worth your while. Let me know if you're interested! Cheers!

Poseidon31: Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants 's ult is far from an automatic win in modern.

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants

Gives your Lords +1/+1 to survive momre Dmg spells or Pump your Cat army or revives some creatures. If you can ult him, you'll win.

I would add more removal to the list

Declaration in Stone

Devouring Light

Conclave Tribunal


I would stick to either making tokens with Precinct Captain , and Secure the Wastes , or switch to more beefy solid creatures.

Mono-White good cards I like are History of Benalia , Legion's Landing  Flip, Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Skymarcher Aspirant .

With Ajani's Pridemate front and centre, you might want another life-gain trigger. Evolution Sage is almost a must for any counter deck as you just keep adding counters. In place of Huatli's Raptor (if you have Evolution Sage ), you might consider something like Pelt Collector , which can be generating +1/+1 counters from turn 2. Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants would also work in this deck.

The dilemma with this type of deck will always be the choice between 1-drops and early counters - growing an attack force or being more aggro from the start and battling to find room for full sets of Stony Strength , Pledge of Unity , Evolution Sage and other cards that accelerate the rate at which you collect +1/+1 counters. I found it easier to build a deck if I focused more either on life-gain or on counter-gain.

Life-gain decks would then bring in cards like Fountain of Renewal , Twinblade Paladin and Take Heart . With more focus on counters, you want full sets of Gird for Battle , Battlefield Promotion and you will rely more on Evolution Sage for proliferation.

I honestly don't know what strategy is stronger, but have had fun playing Ajani M.

Chhris thx for vommenting[Comment and Vote]. I really wanted to keep Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants because its use in the deck. It puts counters on Ghave, it recurs some combo pieces of necessary, or if it reaches its ultimate, it really goes off, giving me so much stuff to do. If you think its unnecessary I can still remove it, but this is my opinion. I agree though that Vivien Reid doesnt fit in very well, I just had it in my hands and decide to use it. Probably replace it with Teysa Karlov because it works great with Blood Artist and such or some type of removal. I am on the line about Ephemerate because its capability Probably am going am going to replace it with Unexpectedly Absent
