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.

Are you building for FNM or casual? If casual, you could probably get away with any Planeswalker as your Commander.

But if you didn't know, on Aug 10th, 2018 WOTC will be releasing a new Commander set focused on Planeswalkers again.

  • AUGUST 10, 2018 Choose your commander and carve your path to victory in this unique multiplayer Magic format. Call on powerful planeswalkers and deploy their signature strategies to make sure you're the last player standing.

It looks like there's only four this time, so chances are very good that we are looking at two-color Planeswalkers minimum. But considering they specifically mention "signature strategies", I'm calling it right now that we will probably be getting at least one three-color 'walker.

Basing this on the fact that the more colors you add, the more strategy you need to win. It's not so blunt and straight-forward anymore.

So, keep this in mind while designing as it's about seven weeks away and it'd really suck for you to design and even buy a deck that might fundamentally change.

But I'm going to tell you this: I absolutely love Superfriends. I play Modern and I currently have quite a few. Not all are on this site so I can't link them, and about half are private. But I have:

I am also currently designing Rakdosfriends, and after that I want to challenge myself with Mardufriends because that's going to be super hard.

The reason I say all of this is because, to be absolutely fair, there's really only ONE combination you need to win. You can win on T6 without ramp, T5 with decent ramp, T4 with extremely well fine-tuned ramp, and it's even technically possible to win on T3 or sooner with insane ramp. In fact, with the perfect hand, it's a T2 win if you know how to get Doubling Season out T1 and produce on T2.

She has a nice chunk of starting loyalty and blows up a few problematic creatures, but otherwise ehhhhhhhhhhhh....

The problem is her +1 doesn't protect her much since it can whiff. Ajani Unyielding, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Garruk, Caller of Beasts, in comparison put either more types of cards into your hand or multiple cards in your hand. That way, you can either grind your opponent down through attrition or at least find a specific answer.

Her -3 is definitely relevant, but again, it's more situational and doesn't deal with your opponent's non-flying 100/100 trampling eldrazi elephant raptor of doom.

These two factors mean she'll probably never ult, which isn't a good measurement of a planeswalker anyway (since most planeswalker ults win the game).

I dunno, maybe she will end up being relevant? It just seems like she's really ho-hum for a 5 mana 'walker in green. If your board is empty, she can't protect herself and she may even whiff on the +1, so really her only saving grace is that she'll have 6 loyalty. That still doesn't seem all that great in a format with a 5/4 for or against a deck that can play their 5 mana planeswalker and use its +1 to Negate or Spell Pierce yours.

Mouth // Feed maybe? It's cheap and it gives card advantage. I'm a big fin of Ajani, Mentor of Heroes but it's a bit pricey.
