Ajani, Mentor of Heroes Discussion

As far as your fetching goes, Sapseep Forest and Mistveil Plains are easy and useful substitutes. I know you're going for a legendary theme, but Knight of the Reliquary would be too good here, especially if you added some lands like Adventurers' Guildhouse, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, or Gavony Township. I also recommend Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, for insurance, and Ajani, Mentor of Heroes for some extra card advantage.

Ok let's go card by card:

Bloom Tender is indeed a better ramper if I have access to my colors, but it is also a creature. My meta is extremely toxic to creatures and it would likely not survive long enough to be tapped.

Ghostly Prison while on paper looks better it lacks the "or planeswalkers you control" line that is necessary. It only protects me, not my walkers.

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes has been in and out of the deck, infinite life is cute but worthless when facing a meta with combo and Kaalia of the Vast

Sorin, Grim Nemesis was tested and proven lacking. The token swarm is cool but a -0 on Ugin, the Spirit Dragon or any other wipe before a turn cycle makes them worthless.

Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury ---> Abrupt Decay is just no. Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is repeatable removal and generates mana producing blockers. I will not always have Tamiyo, the Moon Sage or Teferi, Temporal Archmage emblem and my meta is not forgiving to creature builds but often let the walkers slide for a turn too long.

I'm a big fan of Atraxa. I too take to super friends route with her. I have a few suggestion. Personally I would run Bloom Tender over Gilded Lotus. It nets you more mana and for much cheaper.

I would also run Ghostly Prison over Norn's Annex. I think forcing an opponet to spend mana over life is a much better option. And again it will help with the curve.

Since you are running both Tamiyo's I would definitely add Ajani, Mentor of Heroes. If you have both Tamiyo's emblems and doubling season on the field you have infinite life. You can cast Ajani, Mentor of Heroes use his ultimate to gain 100 life send him to the graveyard, Put him back in you hand and cast him again for free. It's great.

With the above combo I would add Sorin, Grim Nemesis over Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Having a bagillion 1/1's with lifelink is hilarious.

I have a few more but I don't want to over bombard you. I would take out Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury and add in Abrupt Decay Her only really useful ability is her -2, and having Abrupt Decay is just another way to abuse the dual Tamiyo's emblems.

I apologize in advance for all of what I am about to write...

I think life gain/pillowfort can be your win con in this deck. Similar to mine, it's all about keeping yourself protected until you can actually get your combo pieces/finishers.

I would actually recommend you keep Essence Warden over Celestial Force/Ajani's Mantra. You're right, it is less reliable, but it has a much higher ceiling. An average deck would still give you quite a bit of life off of her, let alone if you manage to play against a token deck. Essence Warden, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, and maaaybe Suture Priest.

I would also recommend Propaganda and, possibly, Norn's Annex to your pillow fort list.

I wouldn't recommend many mana rocks, in my opinion. Since you are in green, you have access to a ton of mana ramp. Courser of Kruphix and Oracle of Mul Daya being two fantastic choices. Then, of course, you have your mana dorks like Llanowar Elves and Birds of Paradise.

You are thinking about putting in Energy Field as well, and if you do, I would recommend Rest in Peace. This combo lets you never take damage from opponents.

Lastly, another little combo that you have one piece of is the Ajani, Mentor of Heroes combo. Put in Doubling Season (I know it is on the pricey side...) and Deepglow Skate, the cast Ajani to be able to hit his ultimate as soon as you cast him. 100 life on turn 5 is pretty good, haha. That little combo could also do some work with Aetherflux Reservoir as another possible win con.

Again, I'm sorry for this huge long thing! I just hope I said something that is helpful for you! (:

I'm actually not in need of the Lava Spike anymore as I actually just traded for a set of them the other day. Just haven't been around to update my binder entirely. However Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Jace Beleren are still up for trade. I am still interested in Ajani, Mentor of Heroes Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded I will look through your binder tomorrow for for a difference, even though trade value doesn't bother me. I will also enable chat, just so we don't have to write on each others wall.

Hmm. Liking the changes, but I now wonder if you have the right Planeswalker. My first thought is, Ajani, Caller of the Pride is cheaper and seems to fit the deck theme better. Also for consdieration, although they're more expensive, are Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and just about any of the Elspeths (she pretty much always makes tokens). I know it's very pricy mana-wise, but I feel like Elspeth, Sun's Champion now fits almost perfectly into this deck.

Firebones675 on The Token Planeswalker

Good start I have few suggestions for tweaking it.

Green and white generally have the most creature token production of any color, and green is known for +1/+1 counters so you definitely are in good colors for what you are trying to do. If you did decide to splash black you could run Winding Constrictor or Corpsejack Menace but the deck still works fine without them.

I think the one card your deck wants the most is Hardened Scales. I'd try to pick up some copies if you can. Oath of Ajani is another good one. Champion of the Parish is also a good option as it is good in both human decks and decks that care about counters.

If I were you you i'd cut down on some of the cards that don't fit into your theme like Seraph of Dawn. Bane of Progress is nice but outside of edh he's generally a bit too slow and here he nukes too much of your own board. Same holds true for Akroma's Vengeance and Austere Command. If you really want a board sweeper i'd pick a cheaper one like Wrath of God

I think you should also include a bit of spot removal for creatures. In most games your opponents are going to be playing things you don't like. Path to Exile is arguably the most efficient one but really most cheap ways to answer creaturs is fine. Things like Oblivion Ring can also hit noncreatures as well.

One last thing, if you count kytheon, you have 5 giddeon planeswalkers. Unfortunately while you can control planewalkers of different subtypes, all 5 of these have the subtype gideon. This means you can only have 1 in play of the 5 at any given time. (If another walker enters the battlefield and it has the same subtype of one you already control you must sacrifice all but 1 immediately before anything else happens) So while Nissa, Voice of Zendikar doesnt mind being with Gideon, Champion of Justice, Gideon, Champion of Justice and Gideon, Ally of Zendikarcant be both in play under your ontrol. As a result i'd cut one or two of them to be on the safe side. One of the ajanis (maybe Ajani Steadfast or Ajani, Mentor of Heroes) could also be options
