Ajani's Pridemate Discussion

5c0r910n on Kill that for me

might wanna consider the Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo as a another win con, as both are very powerful on their own. Also Exquisite Blood and Aetherflux Reservoir is another win con. I also suggest Serra Ascendant and Ajani's Pridemate, as they are very strong in decks like your that maintain a high life total. Also because your very invested is killing everything, I suggest grabbing Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves, as alot of decks have removal for the same reason, except everything but your stuff is already dead. To get around the boots on your opponent's side, try running Arcane Lighthouse. Also another good finisher is Rise of the Dark Realms, although it could be not very good since most people will still have their board wipes, for most threats are dead. Painful Quandary will help you keep a lock on the game. ooo and Grave Betrayal shouldn't require any explanation.

Leonin Arbiter is a great modern card and can be used to great effect in combination with other modern control staples like Ghost Quarter and Path to Exile; also hoses fetches. Ajani's Pridemate better as a grower, need to have lifegain to make him good though. Rancor also could be a card worth considering, although it's not a creature, it's got super value at a green, gives trample to get past chump blockers. And we get down to probably the best 1 drop grower in those colours; Serra Ascendant... could take some time to get big without some help though, but curves into pridemate nicely. Another good 2 drop that doesn't need to swing to be good and deadly is Suture Priest, which combines the abilities of Soul Warden and Blood Seeker, which if you use, you could run a card called Mercy Killing, hope some of this can help.

Azorius Signet

Simic Signet

Sol Ring

Ajani's Pridemate

Cradle of Vitality

great work so far, keep it up!

Instead of Relic Crush you could use Return to Dust, does almost the same thing if it's on your turn, but maybe it's just me that prefers to exile something rather than to destroy something.

You could put an Adorned Pouncer or an Ajani's Pridemate insted of an Initiate's Companion.With the equipment sub-theme you could use a Leonin Abunas just for shit and giggles. Also, kind of situational, but Shamanic Revelation is usually better than Harmonize (Or use both).

Swords to Plowshares is never a bad option.

All of those cards are not that expensive and are really good, I guess.

If you want to inch towards a more drain and gain over several turns here are a few ideas you might want to consider

Stab Wound, Pillory of the Sleepless, One Thousand Lashes, Visions of Brutality, Agent of Masks, and Sinister Possession

If you want to proceed along a more lifegain based creature buff type thing then you might want to consider

Fiendslayer Paladin, Authority of the Consuls, Fumigate, Blind Obedience, and Ajani's Pridemate

DangoDaikazoku on Cat mob/lifelink deck

Also Ajani's Pridemate and Metallic Mimic can be good with the tribal/lifelink.

_raeofsunlight on So Many Tokens...

Ajani's Pridemate and Abzan Falconer would be nice additions to pair with your counters, and Suture Priest would be an easy detriment to your opponents and benefit for you. With all of the abilities that you have included, you may want to consider Concerted Effort and/or Odric, Lunarch Marshal

O Ring is too slow for modern, I suggest switching them out.

Archangel of Thune w/o ramp is a recipe for disaster, and so the real win cons of soul sisters are Serra Ascendant and Ajani's Pridemate, with occasionally Lone Rider  Flip seeing play in budget equivalents

Auriok Champion is meh at best, Champion of the Parish/Thalia's Lieutenant + Norin the Wary and Lightning Bolt/Lightning Helix for the best soul sisters deck in the current meta.

This isn't a competitive deck, but it you come up with a better win con, you are on the right way. Archangel of Thune is only a flashy, useless card as is.
