Ajani, Strength of the Pride Discussion

One of the most important part of deck building is making your deck consistent.

Pick a few great creatures like Healer's Hawk and Ajani's Pridemate and put 4 of them in your deck.

Leonin Vanguard is a great choice until rotation. Ajani's Welcome is a good easy left gain enabler.

Ajani, Strength of the Pride is a good planeswalker. Gideon Blackblade is another good planeswalker.

Put in some removal such as Prison Realm or Mortify

Just pick a few good creatures/spells/planeswalkers and grind for those.

Hey, since you upvoted my

Ghired Dead Redemption

Commander / EDH* TypicalTimmy


deck, I wanted to let you know that I've been making revisions.

First and foremost, I removed Hazezon Tamar because he is too much money for a single card, his ability doesn't trigger right away, you can't ramp into him appropriately (Using stones means less tokens), and the tokens leave when he does.

I also removed the "Wincons" section, because I figure I am going to be generating a ton of hate from the other three players; If my creatures are constantly dying and my board is being wiped, creature-based win conditions mean nothing. So, instead I replaced them with boardstate protection to stop my guys from being blown off the face of the mat.

Lastly, I added in four sweepers myself, in the event I just need to reset the game and rebuild. Each of the sweepers will actually generate me value, such as Hour of Reckoning as it protects my creature tokens from being blown up.

I may consider dropping a few Superfriends, perhaps down to 4. I have the following ones for the following reasons:

As you can see, there is a theme here: Mana & Life. Keeps the engines going.

If I drop any, it will be Freyalise and Huatli as they feel the weakest, being only viable for one option.

Ajani and Elspeth both generate mass amounts of life and have sweepers built in that give me advantage. They can also generate tokens, if need be.

Domri and Xenagos both offer me mana, give me tokens, and allow me to either filter the top four or merely play the top seven.

Frey and Hualti just give me a dork and some life. Frey can get me some serious draw if she sticks around, but Hualti is basically a one-trick pony.

I’d suggest using a Reliquary Tower and not Spellbook , which will also free up a card spot. Entreat the Dead is a decent graveyard-to-battlefield resurrection, and with the lifegain theme in your deck you could probably make use of Bolas's Citadel or the new Ajani, Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

Something like Well of Lost Dreams , Twilight Prophet or Dawn of Hope would be some good card draw.

Since you have a lot of black devotion on permanents, Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a pretty good card.

Crypt Ghast is a black mana doubler with Extort.

Ravos, Soultender has the ability to bring back your creatures. That’s a pretty expensive card though, so even Felidar Sovereign is a win if you have enough life gain going on.

Maybe you’ve already considered these, but hopefully the suggestions will help

Either works really. I've found Knight-Errant to be a little faster with a table of aggressive decks, but Sun's Champion has more raw power.

Realistically, any White planeswalker that can create a token the turn they enter is a viable candidate for an Oathbreaker of this deck:

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar

Elspeth Tirel

Serra the Benevolent

Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

You want an Oathbreaker that will give you shuffle fodder for Oblation immediately.

I can see exactly where you are trying to go with this deck, but the combos just seem a bit slow in the current meta.

Yes, Trostani Discordant and Emmara, Soul of the Accord can produce 1/1 token soldiers which you can tap to cast Venerated Loxodon who then pumps them. The problem is that it takes time to cast your token generating creatures and then need an elephant in-hand to do anything. There are just so many board-wipes for 2/2 creatures around that you need to double pump all your tokens to have any hope that they will survive for any length of time.

Saproling Migration could easily be replaced by Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter and Ajani, Strength of the Pride without your deck suffering too much. March of the Multitudes just doesn't work for me in this deck - you only get serious value for the card late in the game, when the game result has already been decided.

If you add in a bit of lifegain, the deck could head off in a new direction and be more competitive. See what you think of Ajani M
