Taigam's Strike

Sorcery

Target creature gets +2/+0 until end of turn and can't be blocked this turn.

Rebound (If you cast this spell from your hand, exile it as it resolves. At the beginning of your next upkeep, you may cast it from exile without paying its mana cost.)

Taigam's Strike Discussion

Nice deck. I really like the theme :)

I suggest replacing Taigam's Strike with Distortion Strike . I think that for three mana less its worth just being +1/+0 instead of +2/+0.

Also, maybe instead of Evolving Wilds you could put Fieldmist Borderpost to trigger more prowess for free.

Finally, i like instants with no cost like Gush or Ramosian Rally to trigger prowess. It always throws the opponent off and keeps them worried even if you are tapped out :P

Also, Distortion Strike is another good one to consider. Your mana curve is pretty steep for what seems to be a fairly aggressive deck. I would consider adding more low cost creatures, and reducing the amount of high cost cards. (for this reason Taigam's Strike definitely does not make sense).

Unclaimed Territory is the "poor wizard's cavern".

Not sure how in love you are with Taigam's Strike, but have you considered Teleportal or Artful Dodge? They are all kinda different, but just throwing it out there. Rally the Peasants also comes to mind.

My apologies.

I confused this with being a Standard deck.

If you're going for evasion you might also want to include:

You've got Distortion Strike and probably better Slip Through Space for good evasion.

For flavour and more birds from Dovescape you could use Taigam’s Strike instead.

Clarification needed on whether Dovescape checks for total CMC of split cards but something like Commit/Memory is good support if so - and/or Dusk just because.

In the same vein, Retribution of the Meek, Fell the Mighty and Kirtar's Wrath are good wipes for token decks along with Austere Command that you already have.

Not a fan of Gift of Estates or anything that specifically adds lands to your hand without away to dump them into play like Terrain Generator or Ghirapur Orrery. Gift is doubly awkward because it only gets Plains, and you only have 11. Yeah, you get your nonbasic Plains as well, but if you draw a glut of them early, or get Gift really late, it isn't worth it. You're better off with something like Burnished Hart, Myriad Landscape, Journeyer's Kite, or Thaumatic Compass.

I think you might want some more dragons if you're serious about Ojutai, Soul of Winter. His effect is stellar, but if you can't reliably swing with more than 2 dragons, it's a bit rough.

Shroud is nice, but I don't think Taigam wants it. It's very difficult to protect him from things when you can't target him. The Crystal Shard is a stellar touch, but not great if you have Whispersilk Cloak on. You might be better served with Swiftfoot Boots to get haste with your hexproof. Also a great taste with Taigam’s Strike, Distortion Strike, and Slip Through Space

Valorous Stance is pretty cool, great if you're focusing on just keeping Taigam around. Some other cards that help your team live through boardwipes couldn't hurt much. Eerie Interlude is one of my favorites even if it works better with ETB abilities and doesn't help tokens out at all, poor Monastery Mentor

It's a shame that Kor Haven doesn't help protect Taigam on his way in to slugging someone in the face to rebound all your spells. Speaking of which, Instants/Sorceries that draw you cards might be worth looking at since what's better than drawing X cards? That's right, drawing 2X cards.
