Ajani Steadfast Discussion

Mardu_Charizard on White Cat Wins

I think Sacred Cat and Trained Caracal should be cut for Loam Lion and Steppe Lynx because your walkers provide lifelink already(Ajani Steadfast +1), so your lifelink cats are sort of a nonbo with that. Also, the two cats mentioned above can pressure the opponent's life total much quicker, while in the late game Regal Caracal can help you gain some life. Imo, a 1 mana 2/3 is far better in this deck than a 1 mana 1/1 lifelink we since you're already gaining tons of life. On a side note, Ajani, Caller of the Pride is great because it comes down on turn 3 and assuming you have a 1-2 drop, he can start pressuring their life total right away with his +1. His -2 is a great follow up to this because, say you play a turn 1 steppe lynx, turn 2 you swing and bring them to 18. Turn 3 ajani pumps lynx and you swing them down to 14 the following turn you -2 and swing in to bring them to 8 or lower, depending on your turn two play. They can potentially be as low as 2 if you play a 3/x 2 drop.

So, this comes down to templates. The "prevent x damage" wording is generally used with more limited scope, either time (until end of turn) or a specific pseudo-target (enchanted creature, or dealt to [cardname]). When it is a more broad effect, it typically is made to act as a replacement effect, hence the "whenever". There are examples of the former being used for general effects (Energy Field), but most newer cards act as replacement effects, like the emblem on Ajani Steadfast.

Doubling SeasonPrimal Vigor and Strionic Resonator are all going to make thing get out of control quickly in the game. Contagion Clasp and Contagion Engine would be good. i def. agree that Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice is a must and with green you need to take advantage of your mana ramp. how about the vivid lands they come with counters and would help fix your mana. Teferi, Temporal Archmage for card draw and for certain on his final ability, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, and Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Steadfast, Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and Karn Liberated. should be in there. i do agree with multimedia on what to take out except for kiora thats a solid planeswalker some more card draw would be good also. and some protection for atraxa like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. here is how i built mine it's not super friends but it should give you some ideas.

Nvm what I said about Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. I will add him to the deck as well as Ajani Steadfast.

Regarding the trap card Ajani Steadfast, I mainly plop him down for his emblem. His -2 is also nothing to scoff at when you have another walker that needs that extra loyalty to ultimate, and is also disgusting with rings of brighthearth. I have great experience with him and suggest you try him out one more time!

How to fix up this deck to be Modern competitive on a budget:



Remove an Anointer of Champions, and drop two of the Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip' then take out the Expedition Envoys, Declaration in Stones, Consul's Lieutenant, and finally the Gryff's Boons. (15 total cards)

Add 4 Soldier of the Pantheons (better than Expedition Envoy), 4 Champion of the Parishs (like Thalia's Lieutenant but is a one drop, and half the abilities), 4 Gather the Townsfolks ((For Champion of the Parish, and Thalia's Lieutenant)), and finally a Plains and 2 Windbrisk Heights (Card advantage).



Remove all Silkwraps, Plains, Pacifism, Lantern Scout, and Eerie Interlude (11 total)

Add 4 Fragmentizes, 4 Path to Exile, 3 Rest in Peace, 2 Stony Silence


If you want:

Switch Always Watching (doesn't affect the Gather the Townsfolk humans, more expensive, but has vigilance) for Honor of the Pure (Cheaper, works on tokens, but doesn't have vigilance, and won't buff flipped Town Gossipmonger  Flip)

Switch Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Gideon of the Trials, Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Ajani Goldmane, Ajani Steadfast, or Gideon, Champion of Justice although I like Elspeth, all of them are great in their own right.

Thanks for commenting on my deck, I appreciate it. Open the Armory is a search card, but Recall is an interesting card. I'll think on it.

I'm just going to list off a bunch of cards that I think would benefit this deck a lot -

Fabricate, Grand Abolisher, Path to Exile, Sun Titan, Commander's Sphere, Irrigated Farmland, Duelist's Heritage, Expedition Map.

Also I see you have a grand total of five cards that keeps Ojutai untapped. Brave the Sands, Always Watching , Ajani Steadfast, Minamo, School at Water's Edge, Angelic Field Marshal, Heliod, God of the Sun are among the good ones in my opinion.

I'm finding I change a few cards in my deck once or twice a week, cause Ojutai isn't terribly synergistic. I'll be in touch as the deck changes/grows.

You're deck is very controlling and artifact centric, I like it a lot, there's room for refinement though. Impressive gear regardless, this deck works when it hits a few key cards I'll bet.
