Ajani, the Greathearted Discussion

Davriel, Contract Killer

Legendary Creature - Human Shade

Shadow (This creature can block or be blocked by only creatures with shadow.)

Whenever Davriel, Contract Killer deals combat damage to an opponent you may sacrifice a creature. If you do, that opponent also sacrifices a creature. Then put a contract counter on Davriel, Contract Killer. Then if Davriel, Contract Killer has four or more contract counters on him, exile him and return him to the battlefield transformed.

Let's make a deal...


Davriel, He Who Binds

Legendary Planeswalker - Davriel

+1 Put a contract counter on a permanent you control and a permanent your opponent controls. Those permanents become Shadowbound (If one of those permanents would be destroyed, they are both destroyed. The same is true for returning to their owner's hand, being moved into their libraries, being exiled, being sacrificed, etc.)

-1 Choose one: Destroy, Exile, or Sacrifice a permanent you control with a contract counter on it. You lose 3 life.

-7 Remove all contract counters from all permanents and each player sacrifice all of them. Each opponent loses life equal to the total amount of counters removed in this way and you gain that much life. If that value is 10 or more, each opponent discards their hands and you draw 5 cards.

Looks like you're missing Ajani, the Greathearted for giving extra loyalty, The Chain Veil for extra activations, and alongside that you don't have enough forests for Nissa, Worldwaker to go infinite with her, Ral Zarek and the Veil; that combo is not necessary though.

I was also considering Ajani, the Greathearted as he fits with the flavor of the walkers I’ve chosen and the semi superfriends like strategy and helps me save life while beating in the mid or late game.

I'm assuming you:

Route 1) Stength Draw with Worse Creature Tempo

Cut cards that are good tempo plays but otherwise don't help you win by drawing cards. The idea is that you draw into Approach of the Second Sun , cast it, and then trigger your draw abilities to be able to cast it again very quickly. I assume this deck isn't trying to be super competitive. I added a little recursion for toolbox, while still being group hug.



Side Note: I really don't like Sunscorch Regent but I get why he's in the deck as part of a wincon. I just feel Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal are very similar and provide much more to the deck in an obvious way, but they cost $8 as a pair so I didn't want to formally recommend them.

Have Simic Ascendancy , cast Toothy, Imaginary Friend and Pir, Imaginative Rascal , draw 5 cards with in game triggers which puts 10 on toothy which puts 20 on Simic Ascendancy .

I like this list a lot! I'd consider Ajani, the Greathearted for even more wide +1+1 counters and Evolution Sage for proliferate on landfall.

For a list of potentially good cards with little synergy, this list seems surprisingly promising. The mana cost curve is just a bit high. You really want a lot of mana-ramp for this deck, or you are likely to lose before you get to play your interesting combinations.

If you could flood the field with creatures early, then cast Venerated Loxodon you could potentially get +1/+1 counters on up to 4 creatures. Evolution Sage then adds extra counters with each landfall. Your planeswalkers also get loyalty counters, so you can star to use the -2 effect of Ajani, the Greathearted , etc.

The draw-back is that you might be trying to cram in too many combo tricks into the deck, which makes pulling off any one of them a lot more inconsistent.

I don't want to suggest any cards to remove from your deck as each card is good on it's own or in combination with another. I would, however suggest Arboreal Grazer which provides an early 1-drop blocker and potential for casting an extra land from turn 1.

With so little other protection in the deck, I would want to play at least 2 more Unbreakable Formation . Aggro Selesnya decks are often difficult builds, so you really don't have too many similar decks to compare this deck to. The best that I can offer are my own W L G and Simply Enchanting by FreshBread, but they both have a different focus to your deck.

Also testing Ajani, the Greathearted He's okay, would feel better with more creature aggro tho

Copied this deck and tested it on Untap.in a few times. Seems really powerful to have a card draw engine on your commander that is relatively easy to obtain every game. Some initial thoughts are possibly adding Ajani, the Greathearted , he gives your guys vigilance which synergies with your creature ramp, Cryptolith Rite and Earthcraft , and with March of the Multitudes . Also his +1/+1 counter ability is great with this deck and his life gain synergies with your life gain matters cards like Crested Sunmare and Resplendent Angel
