I mean, if you have Ajani Goldmane, he's already a +1 and a proliferate away from dropping a Serra Avatar... so I'ma pass on that -1 xD

+1 For honest non infectious non Superfriends Atraxa!

I made a similar one not long ago but haven't updated it to include the newer sets. Your inclusion of Pir and Toothy looks fun. May give it a try too.

Atraxa +1/+1 Counters

Commander / EDH Cloudius


Have you considered Ajani Goldmane? His -1 puts a +1/+1 counters on all your creatures. Proliferate would make that +2/+2 per turn and Ajani gains a loyalty counter. So with Atraxa online, Ajani will stay loyal to you for a long time.

If you're playing modern and you aren't playing Cat Jesus then you're missing out! With that, you should fit a few Ghost Quarter to your land base. I would remove a couple basic Forests (Down to 2, maybe), because you're mainly a white deck. Let the dual lands help with the green costs!

Also, Qasali Pridemage is a fantastic mainboard guy. Exalted is great, as well as having main board answers to artifacts and enchantments.

I'd actually replace some number of Ajani's Welcome with Authority of the Consuls. You need a bit of disruption to pave the way for your kitties!

I know you're trying to gain life for Ajani's Pridemate, but that shouldn't be your only focus. I would replace the Revitalize with Path to Exile to deal with bigger creatures than yours.

I think Ajani Steadfast is better than Ajani Goldmane. Personal opinion.

You need a sideboard if you are going to take this to an FNM. If you need help with that too let me know!

P.S. Mirror Entity is technically a kitty ;)

Thanks for the comments.

I had Brainstorm and Treasure Cruise in originally but I took them out as I never felt I was lacking draw and quite a few of our walkers draw already. Haven't put Venser, the Sojourner in as I don't own one. He would certainly go in if I had one.

I had Gideon Jura in also but he didn't really do a lot when he hit the board so I took him out. I could playtest him again instead of Ajani Goldmane. Contagion Clasp is a really good idea, I'll put one of those in for sure along with Impulse and Urza's Ruinous Blast!

Deploy the Gatewatch isn't the greatest but it's a really fun card but absolutely removable from the deck. One game I hit 4 walkers with Will Kenrith emblem out, others I've bricked.

Very nice deck, but I would suggest removing some of the low impact Planeswalker like Ajani Goldmane for more ramp or counterspells. Or even more impacting Pw like Gideon Jura. You can even play Contagion Clasp as a proliferate on the table that midly sinergies with Teferi, Timebender.

I would suggest playing the legendary sorceries on collor, people never removes Niambi from the table, so she also enables its activations.

How Deploy the Gatewatch fare? Does it miss a lot?

As a final tip, I would change Board the Weatherlight for Impulse.

+1 love the deck, Ajani Goldmane?

Hey dude, thought I'd comment it on here.

So let's round out my observations before we move to my opinions.

Win Conditions you have included are: Rolling Stones , Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle , Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift. Of those, Wakestone doesn't really have a way to go off unless another win con is already out. So Wakestone + 1 or Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift are the only current ways to win a game.

Subthemes Detected:

Lifegain- Jaddi Offshoot , Perimeter Captain , Wall of Essence. All decent lifegain, Jaddi is good early, Perimeter is good mid, and Wall of essence is good all game, but particularly mid.

Tokens- Coral Barrier , Hornet Nest , Golden Guardian  Flip , Sprouting Phytohydra , Dragon Fodder , Parallel Lives , Kiora, the Crashing Wave. Coral Barrier does provide an evasion creature, and 1/1's with evasion are often under-rated. Hornet nest is great if you can keep it alive, and okay if it dies. Golden Guardian is an okay card if you can get some tokens out of it, but it doesn't die to anything in your deck right now. Sprouting Hydra is probably the best token card in this deck as it lines up with all of your themes, it has serious potential for combos. Dragon fodder doesn't belong here. Swap it out for a late game threat like Vigor for wall wins, or Luminarch Ascension if you plan to keep the token theme. Parallel lives is at best okay in this deck, if you had more than 10 things that made tokens, I would say its definitely important. Kiora is an okay planeswalker but I'll talk about her in a second.

Ramp- Ok so there's not enough of it. Overgrown Battlement , Ulvenwald Captive  Flip , Sol Ring, Cryptolith Rite. Commander games are won by casting several cards in a turn. Firm believer that if you have green, you run green ramp. Period. Bonus, Ulvenwald Captive is terrible ramp.

Card Draw- You're covered here. I think you have enough card draw.

Planeswalkers- Special Note, I think Kiora is a fun planeswalker, but she's not amazing in this deck. It'd be better to see something like Ajani Goldmane , or Elspeth, Sun's Champion for added tokens, boardwipes, and counters, as well as their emblems enable your win conditions.

Ok so now I'll start by suggesting things you could add to this deck.

Wall of Denial - My favorite Wall.

Tree of Redemption - Can get ugly dude. 0/40 is kinda great in a lifegain deck.

Kodama's Reach - good solid ramp.

Cultivate - Same as above.

Comet Storm - You have ramp, play a ramp board clear.

Kindred Summons - Pick wall.

Fireball - Very versatile in rampy decks.

Vandalblast - You have red, you need good artifact hate.

Supreme Verdict - Favorite Board Wipe

Wrath of God - AKA the Reset Button

Azorius Signet - Ramp

Izzet Signet - Ramp

Aetherflux Reservoir - Can become a win condition (that can be fetched with fabricate) if you have a strong life gain game.

Ajani Goldmane - Can combo with some win cons, has good passive benefits from behind the army of walls.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion - Same reasons as Ajani, but can also board clear creatures with 3 or greater power, so not your walls.

Now we move on to cards I suggest removing.

Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip - Dead weight. You will never want to pay mana for this ability, and if you do you are definitely losing it to removal. Not worth the investment.

Murmuring Phantasm - It's not bad, it just doesn't provide an additional benefit. You could find a better card for sure.

Ulvenwald Captive  Flip - By the time you have 7 mana to pay for the ability you are already playing your better cards. Just put in a bigger late game threat.

Golden Guardian  Flip - Only remove this if you elect not to add several 4 power or greater creatures to the deck.

Abrade - Swap for better removal. I suggest Comet Storm, or Vandalblast.

Arcane Denial - I'd personally trade it for a dozen other draw spells. Opt or Brainstorm or Ancestral Vision if you got it.

Lightning Helix - Okay so IDK what this is in here for. Its a good card in a tempo deck. You can do bigger and better with 2 mana. Play the long game.

Tower Defense - I'll admit, this can rarely win a game. However, Vigor Will just win you the game.

Ghostway - Looks okay with EtB triggers. Is good against boardwipe, but honestly, you have walls. They probably won't die that often, and if they do, you won't be bouncing more than 2-3 back to your hand. Is that honestly worth holding up 3 mana?

Colfenor's Urn - Maybe I don't understand the benefit. Run something like Sun Titan.

Parallel Lives - Get to the 10+ token generators, and this card is waaaaaaay better. As it stands now you may get 2-4 extra tokens in a game, if you draw it.

You may consider adding green to this deck, especially because of Ajani, Mentor of Heroes

Other Ajani planeswalkers I think you should consider:

Ajani Goldmane Ajani, Caller of the Pride and Ajani, Wise Counselor (When it comes out in core set 2019)

You may also add more Felidar Sovereigns for an easier late-midgame win.
