Ajani Steadfast Discussion

Added the suggested Boros Charm to my Sideboard.
This will allow you, to safe your creatures (and all the good enchantment, aswell) from the considered Boardwipes. I think it is even worth a slot in the main deck, by now I just can't decide on which card to exlude for it instead.
Again, thank you so much for your comment kingboo3000, I really apprechiate it!
I will also look after other card draw mechanics to speed the deck a little further. Didn't found anything just yet.
For the suggestions of the Planeswalker: I also gave them a though, even before gigagloin mentioned them. Sorin, Grim Nemesis is interesting. I just don't really like his +1 ability, since this deck is some kind of agro and showing your opponents which cards you draw might be a big disadvantage, somewhere down the line. The +1 ability is also not really strong, because as kingboo3000 mentioned in his comment, my deck is fairly low on converted mana costs, which will make the +1 ability draining only few life points out of my opponents. But since it is EDH, this might still be a good thing. Will have to test it.
For the other two Planeswalkers, Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast, they might also be pretty good. I'm just not sure which part of my deck should be cut. I will think about it and get back to it, when I got an better understanding of the deck and which cards are really key and essential.
Same goes to you gigagloin, thank you really much for your comment and your suggestions! Looking forward to more tips and card evaluation.
Wish you all a good day :)

Not sure about their strength myself but I you want to include more planeswalkers I think Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Ajani Goldmane and Ajani Steadfast might add some value. Sorin provides additional card draw, planeswalker removal and many vampires if you can trigger his ultimate while the Ajanis can generate lots of +1/+1 counters quickly.

Thx for your comment and kind words, SirSh4ggy!
I'm sceptic about Replenish, since the only irreplaceable Enchantments would be Anointed Procession, Cathars' Crusade and Militia's Pride. The rest is pretty good, yet compensateable. I have an Argivian Find that has been on the back of my head since forever, what do you think about that one? Faith's Reward wasn't too bad in my Brago, King Eternal deck and might be one of the most decent options in mono-.
... plus none of them cost 20$, lol.
Ajani Goldmane, huh? Hmm, i tend to pick static buffs over counters, as they also enhance creatures that enter the battlefield later on. I was wondering about Honor of the Pure, Spear of Heliod and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite (only put her on hold to check prices after Iconic Masters).

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.

redace10 Yeah I agree with Ghostly Prison andPropaganda, but swarm is huge in my meta so those helped, but hopefully I have enough token generation to hold a decent board state. I agree with Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, as I can get those effects from spells, and thus rebound them, but Ajani Steadfast offers some good utility that's hard to replicate in spells so I'll have to think about it. And I'm starting to agree with those draw suggestions; more and more, Taigam seems to be one of those decks that just excel with so much draw that you're cycling through your whole deck to get to your best spells (kinda like most red/blue decks that don't just go full curiosity combo). Already have Ponder, Preordain, and Impulse on hand too, so I'll tweak things a bit and hopefully get a finalized decklist soon. I don't actually have the deck yet: Im running a lot of cards leftover from Ojutai, but I just ordered a fuck ton so I'll be able to actually playtest soon too. Thanks for the help

Thanks for the upvote at Untapped Potential - Dragonlord Ojutai. You're right in that I don't dance around the fact it's a Voltron deck. I have tried to hone it to the point where all my cards either ramp, Voltron, or control. Anything else is a just useless fluff.
Neat Taigam deck, you're a little all over the place though. A few suggestions for cards to cut -
A bunch of your aura's are iffy, Shadow Rift is much more in line with what makes Taigam so good. Know that you can cast it immediately after declaring Taigam as an attacker, before blockers can be declared, and it will rebound. Nifty nifty.
A few cards to consider for rebounding good times: Ponder, Preordain, Serum Visions, Sram's Expertise, Impulse, Gitaxian Probe. There are more out there for sure, check out edhrec for the gigantic list of playable stuff.
I'm excited to see how your deck evolves, I am strongly considering switching to Taigam too. Though to be fair, Ojutai isn't so much slower than Taigam, just a little bit slower haha :)
One thing to consider moving forward: a lot of Taigam decks I've seen out there go crazy with a huge list of reboundable spells in the deck, but totally forget that Taigam needs to be protected in the worst of ways. His deck typically is hugely reliant on him staying on the field.
