Ajani Unyielding Discussion

TheDuggernaught on Intangible Tokens

There are far better planeswalkers to use than the ones you are using. As you said, real games do not go on for as long as your play tests. Your opponent is looking to win as fast as possible. Now, tokens can certainly play a bit like a control deck as you have chump blockers for days. But it is not a control deck, and holding out until turn 6 or 7 to play Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and Ajani Unyielding is just not good enough. I really like Elspeth, but she is just a bit too slow. If you are in a decent position where you can play her turn 6 or 7, you are likely going to win anyways and she becomes win-more. Ajani is just very meh. As such, I would cut Elspeth, Ajani, and Call the Gatewatch.

Next, the creatures you have are also all very meh. Wayfaring Temple only populates if you do combat damage to a player with it and is otherwise just a big fat beater that does not get anything out of Intangible Virtue. Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter just takes too much mana investment to be worth it; and Midnight Guard is cute, but does not really have super good interactions with the rest of the deck -- spare the cute but super janky Presence of Gond combo. As such, I would cut all of those.

Enchantments, I would cut Banishing Light, and Presence of Gond. There are more efficient ways to remove pesky permanents than Banishing Light, and if we are taking out Midnight Guard, the Presence of Gond does not do anything.

Last, Secure the Wastes is awesome. But it is overkill having 4 of them. Two is plenty and I would personally only run 1. But if you take it down to 2, that leaves you with 19 empty slots. I would up the lands to 22 (13 slots), add 4 Voice of Resurgence (9 slots), 2 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar (7 slots), 2x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar (5 slots), 3x Sram's Expertise (2 slots), 1 Advent of the Wurm, and 1 Midnight Haunting. Ideally, you would splash black a bit for the best tokens spell: Lingering Souls. But I know you probably want to keep a fairly low budget, and fetch lands and shock lands to support 3 colors is not cheap.

I've considered splashing, and green would be the choice if it was. Ajani Unyielding, Tamiyo, and Oath of Nissa would be the inclusions.

Only have two hesitations: It will increase the budget, since the Oath is about 4 bucks on its own, and I would have to run multiples, and secondly, I am hoping for red to get Nicol Bolas once he enters Standard.

I Like this. I think you can splash green for Ajani Unyielding jest for his -9. and if you do go green you can also play Oath of Nissa. good luck

Ok Winterblast, I got a query for you. I see you point with getting rid of spot removal, but the main reason I wanted spot removal was due to things such as Eldrazi that are indestructible menaces, so I would like some removal that exiles. I'm adding Terminus, but I'm thinking I'll replace Teferi, Temporal Archmage with either Karn Liberated or Ajani Unyielding. Karn exiles any permanent, while Ajani exiles only creatures while having more useful abilities in the other 2 slots. Thoughts?

Pooruniman I'm not saying Ajani Unyielding doesn't work it's just that he is really slow in a aggro heavy meta.

Still would play the deck with him in it tho :P

ghoul_Legion I might have to try that, but I have played with Ajani Unyielding in a GW tokens list and he does work, so I'm going to playtest both in this build.

Phaetion I don't understand your joke. Also, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded combos really nicely with Ajani Unyielding. Crack out Ajani's ult and bump Tibalt to his -6 the turn he comes out. Fun times.
