Ajani's Pridemate Discussion

godzilla080 on Soul's Sister Budget (20$)

I would go with Honor of the Pure > Path of Bravery. I understand the extra life-gain on attack but I like the idea of it dropping a turn earlier (and potentially be able to blow out affinity's 1 toughness creatures ;p). i would also look into Return to the Ranks > Immortal Servitude. While I do like Immortal Servitude you can get thinks like your Mentor of the Meek or Ajani's Pridemate back with Return to the Ranks. Not to mention you get to stack how they enter so Pridemade can become MASSIVE upon entry.There's another way you can go with the deck as well. If you get Thalia's Lieutenant, Champion of the Parish and Thraben Inspector with Ajani's Pridemate, Mentor of the Meek and Doomed Traveler you have a cool human synergy Soul Sisters deck for very little $$$$. Sorry for the novel, I just LOVE the Soul Sisters deck. A really good person to watch on youtube is The Rouge Deckbuilder. He plays SS competitively and has like 4 different builds of the deck. Good Luck and have fun!

Awesome deck, lemme try building it online and see on how it plays and what it needs.

But on first glance there's nothing to win you the game, I recommend Serra Avatar in exchange of a slow growing Ajani's Pridemate.

Hello! I've got some ideas about your deck. As I understand your tactics is to gain life each turn in order to activate Karlov's ability. In this case you don't need cards like Herald of War - she doesn't have anything connected with life-gain theme.
You have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. So why should you just sacrifice your creatures to activate her abilities without any other effect? Let's get more profit by adding Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble. Then I'd recommend to add Felidar Sovereign as a wincon. Ajani's Pridemate is another useful card for a life-gain deck - it gets counters almost each turn. Serra Ascendant is also extremely powerful. Tymna the Weaver helps with card advantage.
Then artifacts. Whip of Erebos - without a doubt. Loxodon Warhammer - this is a classic card. Eternity Vessel - I think you can get some profit from it. Venser's Journal - it's very useful with Necropotence: unlimited draw engine, no maximum hand size and you gain life each turn. Not sure about your Armillary Sphere - Burnished Hart seems better. Filigree Familiar also looks interesting: life-gain + card advantage. And probably Elixir of Immortality?
I hope my ideas were useful. Good luck and have fun!

TheWrongBunny on Ajani's lifeforce (budget)

IlGuale Thanks for the feedback. While there is no real "finishing move" the 2 main ways to win would be a flyer beatdown or boost the Ajani's Pridemates or a creature with Sunbond and make it unblockable with the Rogue's Passage while gaining enough life to keep you in the game and hopefully not have to worry about risking blocking too often. the soul sisters would make a great addition to the deck however at the moment I find myself unable to get any and this deck was built entirely from spare cards in my collection and so far has served me well.

Hi! see that you have a lot of 1x and 2x. I have to suggest you to use mostly 3x and 4x.Also, which is your plan to close the game? May i suggest you to consider making a budget version of Soul Sisters? Both Soul's Attendant and Soul Warden are quite cheap and your Ajani's Pridemate can really benefit of their presence. Another good budget card if you want to try that way is Suture Priest, which can steal life from your opponent, just remember that it doesn't get triggered by your opponent's creatures so you need a good number of creatures

I think you should go to this deck when you decide to start changing it up.

I'd remove the Birchlore Rangers, Congregation at Dawn, Elemental Mastery, Altar of the Brood, Ashnod's Altar, Obelisk of Urd, and Commune with the Gods.

I'd replace those with Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Ajani's Pridemate, Epic Struggle, Felidar Sovereign, Crusader of Odric
