Ajani, Mentor of Heroes Discussion
19 hours ago
Your deck contains several cards that generate tokens. I think your deck would fare better if you'd remove those and instead invest more into getting creatures that either generate counters or benefit greatly from them. There are several budget and non-budget ways of doing this. Here's some of the budget ways (they're not Hydra-themed, but suit your strategy very well):
- Gyre Sage: in your deck, this would be one of the best ramping options ever;
- Wild Beastmaster; works well in your deck; boosts all creatures when attacking;
- Forgotten Ancient; combination of Managorger Hydra and Spike Rogue;
- Champion of Lambholt; no +1/+1 counter deck should be without her;
- Bloodspore Thrinax; an even better version of Wild Beastmaster (because counters all work when defending :))
- Juniper Order Ranger; more counters!
- Renegade Krasis; adding counters can get pretty insane with him around.
- Inspiring Call: nice draw spell and gives all your creatures indestructible for a turn;
- Map the Wastes: ramp and bolster in one card; noice!
- Elemental Bond: because basically every creature you cast, is strong enough to allow you to draw a card.
- Death's Presence: one monster's death, is another's power.
- Hardened Scales: add a counter for whenever counters are added :)
- Bow of Nylea: gives a whole host of options, one of which is adding +1/+1's.
Some less-budget (more expensive) options, would be:
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds: great ramp and card draw creature.
- Vigor: your creatures grow by being dealt damage.
- Primal Vigor: Not quite a Doubling Season but close.
- Ajani, Mentor of Heroes: great walker with a primary ability tailor-made for this deck.
Sorry for the long post. Hope you find some of this to be useful. Happy gaming!

If you relax your gold and artifact only restriction you can get a couple more fun toys (4):
Cards I see on your list that I have seen others suggest, that I think are ok, but not necessarily as awesome as above:
Other cards I've seen others use, but I'm not quite as hot on (8):

I told you I'd toss a few comments your way :)
Ramos, The Dragon Engine is probably your best bet for a rainbow commander. With that in mind: Captain Sisay can tutor up your planewalkers now (with Ixalan's planewalker rule change), as well as Thalia's Lancers. Djeru, With Eyes Open is a simple tutor, plus he can help with damage. Another great card in white is Teferi's Protection. Because, why not protect all of your 'walkers for a round? You can also add Atraxa, Praetors' Voice now to abuse her proliferate ability. Of course, you can also use the new Gideon of the Trials to not lose, and his oath (Oath of Gideon). Look at Ajani Unyielding for a buff for your entire team, while Ajani, Mentor of Heroes can either dig for more friends or win you a game. Kaya, Ghost Assassin is my singular favorite walker, and can reset some of your friends! Narset Transcendent, hello? Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Tamiyo, Field Researcher? Venser, the Sojourner is another blink and control! And of course, you've heard of Shotgun Sorin, but now there's Vraska, Relic Seeker with a freaking bazooka! Enjoy!

any particular reason you limit the deck to one of each planeswalker subtype? (I like the thematic feel of it)
CHANGE OF PLANS? actually because they are now legendary, your allowed to have an Ajani Steadfast and an Ajani, Mentor of Heroes out at the same time which lets your deck, and the super friends theme increasingly better. enjoy your jace, jace, jace, jace, jace board state in a singleton format.

Cards I am thinking about adding:
Ajani, Caller of the Pride
Ajani, Mentor of Heroes
Ajani, Valiant Protector
Nahiri, the Lithomancer
Oath of Ajani
Waiting in the Weeds
Secure the Wastes
Masterwork of Ingenuity
Green Sun's Zenith
Open the Armory
Let me know what you think??
I am going for a lot of creatures and equipping creatures to make them huge!!
Still need to look into more artifacts, enchantment, sorcery, and instant cards to put in.
Also need help with lands!!!

@volcanicdoom: Ajani Vengeant is coming in. He only wasn't in here to begin with because of how good Ajani, Mentor of Heroes is for this deck. I'm probably going to add Garruk, Apex Predator and Garruk Relentless if I can find the room. After that, I'm not sure if I'll have any more room to fit anything else.
As far as win conditions: the planeswalkers themselves! Most of the wins come from making a bunch of tokens and setting off a few ultimates. Because this deck can dump out a turn 3 Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker off of Nissa, Worldwaker and Garruk Wildspeaker, you get so far ahead early on your opponent can't deal with the amount of value being generated.
