Oath of Ajani Discussion

iAzire on Archenemy: Nicol Bolas

My one issue with Vengeant is that it seems to be a one time thing. He is only in that card and even his Oath is although Ajani didn't actually fight him on Amonkhet.

It's a weird issue, but I would like to include him if possible.

Oath of Ajani

Great, nice pick ups :)

So, first of all. There will be a lot of rotation when Ixalan comes out. That will be at the end of September. I will however, suggest some picks from the sets that will rotate out, to try and add some alternate wins in the deck. Keep that in mind with any suggestions NOT from Kaladesh/Aether Revolt/Amonkhet or Hour of Devastation.

Starting with one of those: Felidar Sovereign is really cheap and will fix stalled boards for you if you run into those matchups. As long as you can keep it alive for a turn, you'll most likely win with all the life you gain. I would add 1 or 2 copies. You could possibly replace it with Aetherflux Reservoir but I like it less.

Vizier of the Menagerie is quite a good card. It's a bit more expensive, but will fuel the deck somewhat. If I would play it, I'd play 2 copies as well. Metallic Mimic is a great card, and you should try getting more. Try to pick up 4 copies of Blossoming Defense. It will save you from spot removal, and can be played offensively or as a combat trick. Works great in this deck.
On a similar note Heroic Intervention is great as well, and works against board wipes as well. It's slightly more expensive in both money and mana, but I'd consider running a few.

Cast Out is a great removal spell and hits everything at instant speed. Even in matchups where it doesn't always have a target, you can cycle it to draw another card. Try to get 4 as well. (although you might want to sideboard 2 and maindeck 2 or something like that)
Declaration in Stone is a great card, but will rotate, so don't spend money on it probably.Lifecrafter's Bestiary might be worth picking up, you will be able to filter cards you wont need due to scry and get to draw cards a bit. Not sure how I feel about this card in this deck though.

Attune with Aether works as mana fixing and counts as a one drop :p. The energy synergizes with both the aether hub land and with your Longtusk Cub which can deal damage as a 3/3 thanks to it. Worth trying out 4 copies.

Scattered Groves is the only dual land when the set rotates, so definitely try picking 4 of them.
Canopy Vista and Fortified Village are quite cheap, so these might be worth it for the 2 months they're legal, although I would pick up 4x aether hub before that.
Aether Hub is a quite expensive land, but works well in your deck, especially considering most dual lands rotate in September. Personally, I'd add these to optimize your manabase, which you want to do if you find you run into mana problems. However, you have very few dual casting costs, so you should be fine.

Always Watching is a cool card but will rotate soon, so it might not be worth picking up.Oath of Ajani is a similar card, and might be worth picking up, as it helps your cats grow, but is only fully used in a deck with some planeswalkers. It will however, still buff all your cats, tokens included, and might be worth it anyways. I'd add 2 or 3, but not a whole playset.

I would probably add another copy of Oketra's Monument since it's great. Watchers of the Dead is a fine card, however, you probably only want it against decks that use their graveyard, and as such I'd put them in the sideboard. The same is true for Forsake the Worldly.

I'm on the fence about Prepare / Fight It could be playable, and gives you some buff and removal, but I might cut it since there are better options, such as Ambuscade for the removal part and Appeal / Authority works better as a finisher for just 1 mana more.

Shefet Dunes is also a card you could consider using since it uses a land slot and can finish games at times.

Hi! So instead of putting in Khenra Charioteer I would recommend simply running Driven / Despair. You don't have to splash black for "despair", but you can if you choose to. I feel that would be a better usage of a slot. I would also cut out Samut, Voice of Dissent and red in general. Longtusk Cub doesn't get a whole lot of use in here as the energy theme he needs to survive isn't very strong here like it is in the meta energy decks. You could cut Cub out completely and add something like Always Watching or Oketra's Monument for some extra tokens and the ability to reduce the cost of your white cats. Attune / Cub might work okay, but I feel like there could be other combinations that could be of more benefit. You could even add Oath of Ajani to the deck as that will give you a +1/+1 counter much like Always Watching , but it will apply to your tokens unlike Always Watching .

Of course, if your deck is working fine as is, keep it as is! These are just some suggestions I've had in my cat deck and they have worked well, though I replace Driven / Despair with Appeal / Authority in my GW cat deck I can cast both sides of Appeal / Authority. I usually wait until I have Pride Sovereign out to use Appeal / Authority so he gets really, really big.

here is my cat deck for reference.

Replaced Oath of Ajani with Mouth / Feed

Duuland, I know I need some more removal, but I'm not really sure where to slot it in. I'm thinking of possibly dropping the Always Watching , but the value it gives all the life link kittens seems too good. I'm looking to put in Blessed Alliance somewhere for the additional life gain it provides, which is a definite sub-theme in this deck, and Immolating Glare sideboard for aggressive decks.

Swetybalzack As for the Metallic Mimics, I see your point, and dropped an Oath of Ajani and a Scrounging Bandar for the better two drops to pump the kitten army.

shame2rest, Initiate's Companion does synergize with Pride Sovereign, but it seems like it will be too difficult to get it to hit my opponent, as by turn 4, which is the earliest Pride Sovereign can start creating kittens, Initiate's Companion will almost always be either dead or easily blocked. Not ruling it out completely, but I don't think he's better than the other two drops as of right now.

I enjoy the deck Idea! I just think you need more Metallic Mimics! You want your kittens to grow up and be nice and strong like their Kitten Leader Ajani, right!? Then a little extra boost from the mimic's is worth it. Think of it as an Oath of Ajani but whenever the creature enters the battlefield! Sure the Oath effects all those on the board already, but when you get Pride Sovereign online and pumping out baby kitties, you want your opponents to tremble with fear! You don't want them to laugh at your kittens meows, you want them to be afraid of their roars!

I opted out of some of my infect creatures because they just weren't helping like they should and actually slowed the deck down.

Atraxa actually was a test run in this deck as a commander for the technical version 2 of this deck but the deck never was able to get running nor was I able to do anything because people panicked not only about her but about the infect creatures (which sadly, the infect aspect is to counteract life gain decks, not normal decks) so I've been leery about putting her into the deck list...

Gilder, I'm upset with myself for NOT having a playset of now...buying at least one until I can trade for the other three...as for the others, trying to work them in but the Oath is less useful than you think. Tried it out, as well as using Oath of Ajani but both seemed to help less than current cards. Trimming out the infect so who knows, those two may make their way in yet.

Still testing out the newly oiled parts. The old version worked slower then this though...

Murphy77: Multiple Anointed Procession do stack. See the Tapped out discussion here. Unfortunately Gatherer is down at the moment to verify the ruling. If you play a token effect with 2 Anointed Procession on your battlefield, the first Procession doubles the tokens, and the second Procession doubles the tokens again, leaving you with 4x the original number of tokens. 3 Processions would give you 8 (2x2x2) tokens.

Fragmentize can probably move to the sideboard, especially after the ban of Aetherworks Marvel. But (in my opinion) Cast Out is a solid main deck option with its ability to cycle. If it were my choice, I would swap Fragmentize to the sideboard and bring in either the Oath of Ajani or Nature's Way to the main.
