Ajani Goldmane Discussion
3 weeks ago
Cards I'd consider adding:
Primevals' Glorious Rebirth can be a huge swing.
Aminatou, the Fateshifter has tons of utility for little mana.
Elspeth, Knight-Errant comes down early, protects herself, can allow Atraxa to kill someone with 3 hits and her ult makes any threats you have very hard to deal with.
Oath of Gideon makes tokens to protect your walkers with, generally speeds up your ult clocks, and enables some sneaky combos, like allowing some walkers to instantly ult with doubling season that previously couldn't or allowing Tezzeret the Seeker to find The Chain Veil and stick around to untap it.
Oath of Teferi is a bit expensive manawise, but allows your walkers to go bonkers.
Shalai, Voice of Plenty can block, provides hexproof to the team as well as you (it's surprising how many annoying things say "target player") and comes with a built in Gavony Township to pump your tokens with.
This is very meta-dependent, but you look somewhat light on removal. I'd consider at least one 4-mana wipe (Damnation, Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Supreme Verdict) and one or two more exile effects for hard to remove must-answer threats (Descend upon the Sinful, Swords to Plowshares, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, etc.) unless you really never feel like you need them.
I've seen Deploy the Gatewatch get bad/no hits too many times to be a huge fan of it. Definitely a flavorwin though.
I'm not sure how necessary Gilded Lotus is, considering all your other ramp. Your Landbase doesn't look like you need the colorfixing, and 5 mana seems like a lot to still be ramping, even if you get 3 mana back.
Vraska the Unseen just ended up being an overpriced killspell most of the times I played her, and even if she ults, the tokens still have to untap, and not be blocked, to kill someone.
Liliana, the Last Hope's ult is very nice, but imho not really worth her other 2 pretty useless abilities.
Lastly, seeing as how high quality your landbase is, I'd consider carefully cutting back on the basics and replacing Cultivate with a Farseek and maybe a Nature's Lore. I'm running 37 lands with a pretty trashy base and rarely run into problems, but if you're rather safe then sorry when it comes to lands, that's understandable.
Good luck and have fun playing!

Personally, I would cut Emmara Tandris. Why? Because while she prevents damage, she is absolutely powerless against the power of Damnation or Merciless Eviction. That's the main reason I cut her from my Trostani deck.
Here's my less budget take on Trostani if you want some ideas.

+1 for your deck.
I've a similar Atraxa deck that focuses on +1/+1 counters (cause Superfriends theme is too pricey to make given that I don't own that many Planeswalker to begin with and Infect theme is kinda "unfriendly" for my casual play group).
I'd recommend more ways to put +1/+1 counters on your creatures so you can start proliferating away, Planeswalker does this pretty well:
As the build relies on having a good threshold of creatures in play to swing in for the win, I'd recommend having some ways to protect them too:
Inspiring Call - Protection and card draw, 2 in 1 sweetness!
Lastly, a fun card that lets you cast things for free:
Hope you find some of these suggestions useful, cheers! Be sure to check out my decks to and leave your upvotes and comments!

As a fellow Angel lover (you can see my angel tribal & taxes deck here ), I think you run many angels that are simply not good enough. Angel of Retribution, Radiant, Archangel is too fragile to mass removal, Seraph of Dawn, Seraph of the Suns, Shepherd of the Lost, Requiem Angel, Angelic Field Marshal is useless if you don't have your commander out, and if you have it you really don't need that much having viligance on all your creatures when a lot of them already have it, Exquisite Archangel (if you want this kind of effect I would prefer Resolute Archangel, that does it whenever you want), Herald of War I think is too slow, all of those I think cost too much for what they do, even Radiant, because she is too vulnerable against mass removal, although you could argue that she is good enough, I don't like her that much. I also think some of them like Silver Seraph or Shattered Angel could be removed but I'm fearing that I am going to cut too much and you will end up with less than 100 cards. Also, I'd suggest removing Iona, as hard as it is for me to say, but when my opponents stole it from me for the third time and named white I finally decided is too risky to run her in a monocolored deck.
I also think you are running some inefficient lifegain. Chaplain's Blessing is too weak, you could instead run cards like Blessed Alliance that are far more versatile, or Solemn Offering to mix targeted removal with life gain. Rest for the Weary, Sun Droplet, those ones I think are too ineficient.
Finally, some of the artifacts you run are to make your creatures able to evade more, but I don't think it is necessary when all of them already fly and are enormous, so I would cut Trailblazer's Boots and Prowler's Helm. I don't think Whispersilk Cloak is that good taking into account how many enchantments and abilities you have that target your creatures, and Sunbeam Spellbomb isn't good enough if you are not running some kind of graveyard recursion.
Finally, I would cut many of the cards you use to buff up your angels. They are already big, you don't need too many +1/+1 effects when you are always casting 5/5s, 6/6s and 7/7s. That would make Silver Seraph, Path of Bravery, Honor of the Pure, Dictate of Heliod and Light from Within cuttable.
Have you thought about adding Approach of the Second Sun? It's a nice alternate win condition that makes you gain life. I'd also think about including the OG Ajani Goldmane, it was made specifically about lifegain.

Thanks. Maybe some day i can upgrade to the Angels
Upvoted it hours ago ;)
Just one more question. Why not run Ajani Goldmane like zombiewarfare suggested. Seems really good.

I know Sphere of Safety is potentially a bigger barrier with all of the enchantments you run, but the fact that Ghostly Prison comes down much earlier and is better without other enchantments on the field seems very relevant. Ajani Goldmane seems like he could be an absolute house in this deck as maybe a 2 of in place of Felidar Sovereign. Secure the Wastes or good old Raise the Alarm could be nice siebaord cards against aggro strategies and work with your token theme as well as having excellent synergy with Ajani's Welcome. Mana Tithe could be hilarious sideboard tech game two when opponents board in enchantment hate. Mirran Crusader and Kor Firewalker are strong sideboard options as well.

As a fellow Trostani lover, I can definitely agree with that statement. Unfortunately for me, my opponents always seem to have a boardwipe at hand...
Anyways... to my suggestions.
Ajani Goldmane can get freaking ridiculous in Trostani EDH. I remember one game where I got to 5480 life just by repeatedly populating Ajani avatars. (Unfortunately, I still lost because Commander damage is a bitch).
Crested Sunmare makes for a decent consistent indestructible token generator.
Bramble Sovereign can be nice as well, I haven't tested it out ingame yet.
Like you said: Trostani EDH makes opponents wish for a nuclear winter. You NEED more protection for your tokens. Heroic Intervention and Avacyn, Angel of Hope can work well for that. Teferi's Protection can work against Merciless Eviction or Mutilate.
