Ajani Goldmane Discussion

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.

I adore Trostani, Selesnya's Voice as a commander. This was one of my own first "good" commander decks and can be made very powerful on a pretty low budget. I'll name off some of the best cards for the deck here.

Phyrexian Processor: This is just stupid good. Wait until you have 8 open mana and your commander in play. Cast this card, and once it resolves pay almost all of your life into it (leave just enough not to get burnt out at instant speed, just in case). Then immediately activate the ability, generating a massive token and gaining back all the life you just spent instantly. You now have access to a 30+/30+ token that you can populate or generate a new one from the artifact every turn, gaining you a ton of life as well. Congrats, you pretty much can't die to combat damage except from commanders anymore.

Angelic Accord / Crested Sunmare : Gain life from something, make a token with a nice keyword at the end of the turn and gain extra life. Populate that token during your opponent's turn to gain more life, and get another token from this card at the end of that turn as well. This should churn out about 2 good tokens between each of your turns not including what you get from populating, quickly getting out of hand.

Darien, King of Kjeldor: Whenever you get hit, you get that many tokens. Whenever you make tokens, you gain life equal to their toughness. You now can not take damage unless it kills you in a single hit, and people running into you anyways gains you tokens.

Storm Herd: I'm usually in the camp of "Go tall tokens" with Trostani, but this card is the exception. Nothing ends a game like 40+ flying tokens and doubling your life total.

Aetherflux Reservoir: It's a good idea to have a backup win strategy, especially if you have any turbo-fog or other pillow fort decks in your meta. Pay 50 life to kill an opponent if very doable with Trostani.

Elemental Bond / Garruk's Packleader / Kavu Lair: Drawing lots of cards is always good, and populating big tokens now means you also get free card draw.

Ajani Goldmane: Gaining a couple life isn't a threat. Making your tokens bigger and vigilant is situationally good, but isn't why we're here. Getting to 6 loyalty ang generating a token that's power and toughness fluxuates with your life total means you get to double your life total and the power/toughness of all these tokens every time you populate. Just try to fly under the radar before that.

Rootborn Defenses: Get an extra populate trigger, but more importantly save yourself from a board wipe. Keep your big tokens in play, and kill everyone in a single shot while the shields are down.

Why not some Serra Ascendant?

And could you please me explain what are your win cons? Only Crested Sunmare? (Ajani Goldmane's ultimate only creates an easily destructible or blockable creature, so for me it isn't a win con)

You have no removals, no counters and no draw cards spells, meaning you just play on the draw. In my personal opinion you are underestimating too much your opponent's deck.

Cards you could consider are: Path to Exile, Oblivion Ring, Auriok Champion, Archangel of Thune, Ranger of Eos, Sun Titan, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Spectral Procession, Martyr of Sands, Baneslayer Angel, Honor of the Pure, Chalice of Life  Flip, Windbrisk Heights

Thanks for those suggestions. I'm considering switching in Ajani Goldmane.

Also thinking about adding Path to Exile and Dismember.

The only reason I put Take Vengeance and Murder was because I needed removal and they were laying around.

Ajani Goldmane Just saying he gains life which does more or a buff to your creatures with their triggered abilites than the plus one from the other ajani you have listed

And it's ultimate falls right into theme of your deck

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.
