Ajani's Pridemate Discussion

SynergyBuild on Cleric Deck [~$40]

Drop the Battletide Alchemists for some Path to Exile, drop the Extraplanar Lens and Ousts and Kithkin Harbingers

I'd run the deck closer to a soul sisters deck. Here is the decklist I'd run:

4x Martyr of Sands

4x Path to Exile

4x Serra Ascendant

4x Soul Warden

4x Soul's Attendant

4x Suture Priest

4x Ajani's Pridemate

4x Honor of the Pure

4x Mirror Entity

4x Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip/Westvale Cult Leader

4x Ghost Quarter

16 Plains

Something like that, it would be cleric heavy soul sisters, but lifegain and tokens too.

Cradle of Vitality sounds like a really good idea actually. Didn't think about many new cards as I've only just recently got back into the game but Profane Procession and Vona, Butcher of Magan would help me if I feel like I'm lacking removal. I want to put in Ajani's Pridemate too but I need to source one for the deck first! Very appreciative of all the advice though :)

I think a really good card for karlov is Cradle of Vitality. Now you can stack a ton more counters on him!

Profane Procession  Flip might be a cool card to try out.

Pristine Talisman will give you that lifegain and ramp every turn!

Vona, Butcher of Magan will give you more stuff to do with all the extra life! Blow stuff up!

Ajani's Pridemate might be a good beater for you!

hope some of this helps!

Honestly, this deck looks like a more casual version of Soul Sisters, a competitive lifegain deck from the early days of the Modern format. The link I just gave gives a pretty comprehensive breakdown of that deck, but for the bits that would work in your deck without making major changes...

Soul's Attendant: Here, you seem to have dropped copies 5-8 of Soul Warden. This is technically better because you could choose not to gain life if that would be bad for some reason, but you really just wanted more. Better than Soulmender, and because you gaining life increases your damage output it's also almost always better than Suture Priest

Auriok Champion: Even more Soul Sisters! While this one costs double to play, the protection from black and red is extra good right now thanks to the prevalence of black aggro decks, and makes it very hard to remove unless your opponent is using Path to Exile.

Spectral Procession: 3 1/1 flying tokens for 3 mana. Triggers each soul sister in play 3 times, meaning a +3, +6, maybe even +9 for your Ajani's Pridemate and Archangel of Thune.

I could go on, but that seems like a good jumping off point that won't break the bank.

thesoulboy13 on B/W Soul sisters

Zelpoke I wish i could play Serra Ascendant but it's too slow in this version of soul sisters. If i want to play it i need more bursty lifegain, and i will most likely have to play Martyr of Sands to get myself up to 30 life quick enough for it to matter. And then to keep martyr effective enough i should play mono white souls sisters, instead of the B/W shell i'm running. My life gain is sadly too slow and if i'm lucky i could have a 6/6 ascendant on turn 3-4, but at that time my Ajani's Pridemate's are usually bigger. i might experiment with martyr and ascendant in a later version of the deck (martyr proc? maby?). But thanks for the input :)

Bump due to update. I still feel there is something missing. I don't like how it all rides on Ajani's Pridemate and Serra Ascendant. It feels like I'm waiting to long to make them trigger. Either that or I need to find a way to make getting them out and big more of a guarantee.

I would still go for an Ajani's Pridemate rather than Lone Rider. I can become an ultimate monster.
