Ajani, the Greathearted Discussion

storro on 【Standard】 ▷BEST 【SYNERGY】 DECK is__!?◁【IKORIA】

Have you considered the new B/W 3 drop general in this deck he makes your tokens bigger and you can sac two human tokens to pop a creature power four or greater. i play something similar and he has been a house for me i also play Ajani, the Greathearted with this deck and his -2 to put plus counters on everything is fantastic with with hero and garruk late game.Deathsprout is also highly underrated in this kinda deck kill one thing draw a card and fetch a land at instant speed if you have chevill out if you have him and hero out you also get a human not a bad trade for me at four mana

Boza on Cheaper replacement of Dawn of ...

1 month ago

There aren't many cards as good as this. You can wait 6 months for standard rotation to make that cheaper. Alternatively, Ajani, the Greathearted is cheaper and works better in your deck.

Angel of Vitality and Path of Bravery are other good payoffs for having 25 or more life. if you think you can gain 4 life per turn reliably Angelic Accord is the best payoff.

I'd consider cutting Ajani, the Greathearted, Rally to Battle, Aegis of the Heavens, and I'd look for a card draw replacement for Return of the Wildspeaker since you'll probably never draw a lot off of it. a Pull from Tomorrow or a Blue Sun's Zenith might fit. A lot of the 1-shot combat effects in commander tend to fail, or at the very least are underwhelming. They look sweet, but you're better off packing your deck with removal and effects that stay on the board. I'd keep Tower Defense and nix the rest of the instant boosts.

As someone with a deck with the same commander, may I humbly recommend Ajani, the Greathearted? Not only can he pump your creatures and other planeswalkers and gain you life, but he also gives your giant army of wolves vigilance! One can never underestimate the value of 15 creatures with vigilance.

Blackgate on Pledge of the Eternals (Selesnya midrange weenie)

Hello I_Want_To_PlayAllTheDecks, thanks for the suggestions! Llanowar Elves helps offset the costs of Shalai, Voice of Plenty and Ajani, the Greathearted to get them onto the battlefield earlier. I considered Jadelight Ranger and Merfolk Branchwalker but the 2 and 3 drops already in the deck have +1/+1 counter synergy as well and other abilities that have synergy with the deck. That being said I would be curious to try play testing Jadelight Ranger in the deck and see how it goes. I do like that card a lot. Emmara, Soul of the Accord is a fun card but not sure it fits the deck or what it would replace that’s already in the deck. I feel this creature would be better served in a tokens deck or a deck that allows you to tap/untap with a high level of consistency to take advantage of token production.

Grafdigger's Cage in the Sideboard is there for graveyard hate, but would not want to main deck that as this deck uses graveyard synergy.

Having card draw also stood out to me and couldn’t find a way to put more in the deck so I have Revitalize in the sideboard, which also has synergy with Lone Rider  Flip.

The deck is very fun to play- if you try it out I would love to hear how it goes!

Meachman on Marath, Will of the Wild

In green/red, Rhythm of the Wild is almost an auto-include.

Marath has a nice synergy with deathtouch, allowing you to spend one mana to kill any creature on the board.

Gorgon's Head and Bow of Nylea are nice options, with Basilisk Collar as a more expensive option (but it also lets you gain 1 life for each murder).

A focus on the commander means stepping up mana production is probably the next focus area. Gyre Sage, Devoted Druid, and Fertilid are all repeated, +1/+1 counter based mana, and Faeburrow Elder isn't far off. Kodama's Reach, Rampant Growth, and Wayfarer's Bauble for the early game.

And if counters are going to be so central, proliferate becomes even more helpful. Grateful Apparition, Wanderer's Strike, Karn's Bastion (which pairs nicely with you land-search ramp).

And with proliferate, some planeswalkers are worth considering, like Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter, Ajani, the Greathearted, Domri, Anarch of Bolas, and Domri, Chaos Bringer

Suggested cuts: Archangel, Grazing Gladeheart, Drumhunter, Spawning Grounds, Slippery Karst, Vitu-Ghazi, Druidic Satchel, Drifting Meadow, Forgotten Cave, New Benalia, Tranquil Thicket, Where Ancients Tread

Boza on Unsanctioned: non-Squirrel squirrel art?

I meant the Ajani, Mentor of Heroes art. The Ajani, the Greathearted one is definetely a squirrel.

Coward_Token on Unsanctioned: non-Squirrel squirrel art?

4 months ago

So the recently spoiled Acornelia, Fashionable Filcher cares about spells with squirrel art. Aside from cards which have "squirrel" in their name, type, and/or text box, what nonland cards can you think of that have the appropriate art? (Yes, I know the Unsanctioned non-foil basics have squirrel silhouettes but they can't be cast unless your name is Stephen Green.) Only one I can think of is Ajani, the Greathearted (it's next to his right leg)
