Id replace Deathgorge Scavenger with Marauding Raptor because that is the only creature you control that wouldnt survive the raptors ability and the raptor is a cheap creature which you need and lowers the CMC of your other dinos. Id also add the Dinosaur Stampede in, it will be better than either Overrun or Titanic Ultimatum 85% of the time. You'll have to play test it a bit and see if the mass trample really helps you. About half your dinos have trample already.

ScionsStillLive, haha i know, i know. Someone mentioned that. I guess I should just find room for them, at least for the decks namesake. Maybe i should just name it Titanic Ultimatum . Lol

SynergyBuild, Overrun is a great card.. Overwhelming Stampede is even better. You know its true I had a choice between Overrun and Titanic Ultimatum .. I choose the later. I choose the more expensive, harder to cast, less efficient version of Overrun ..as a blowout move when no one expects it and ko opponen!! I guess im.going Goodstuff then?. But, yes, I'll consider your recommendations, thank you!

EDIT: Revised versions appear below after the initial iteration.

This idea bases around Ajani during the Shards of Alara story but not his rage mindset from Ajani Vengeant and instead focuses on his abilities to bring out aspects or avatars of the strengths of his allies.

Ajani has always kinda had this sort of behavior as we see in his planeswalker forms like;

Ajani Goldmane

Ajani, Mentor of Heroes

Ajani Steadfast

These sort of abilities have primarily manifested themselves in +1/+1 counters and often as a board wide buff or targeting multiple creatures. It works relatively well with White Wheenie strategies of many low cost efficient creatures.

However Ajani have also been shown to have abilities that are more focused. I'm thinking in the lines of Soul's Grace , Soul's Fire , Soul's Majesty , and Soul's Might - all of which are cards from Shards of Alara. To some extend it is also shown in Titanic Ultimatum . These abilities are more aligned with Naya's design of big fat creatures. I have always been disappointed that Ajani have never again shown any such ability in his future planeswalker designs and felt wanting a version that reflected these abilities.

So here goes an attempt at creating a Naya related version of Ajani Goldmane.

Some issues I acknowledge right of the bat:

The abilities are rather lengthy and could be cut down to be less complicated at the expense of being less dynamic. For instance the +2 could be a static token that just copies the P/T at the time of creation. It's a lot less flavorful. So instead of manifesting a creature's soul and let that do the fighting and safeguard the actual creature, it would be more generic token creation, also with less limits. In the current wording you can in principle only have one avatar per creature but if the original creature gets removed, the magic of the avatar remains and can take on a new form whenever you have another creature enter the battlefield - which is something I like as an interaction.

Likewise the -1 could literally just be a Soul's Fire but it removes the ability to delay the damage to instant speed and the possibly to make the creature larger before blowing something up. It does however open the ability up to fizzling by removing the creature before the aura token is created.

The "ultimate" could be a fixed number of cards to look at. I was swaying a bit between a singular and a board wide application with more of an "ultimate feel" to it (obviously at a higher loyalty cost). However I figured this had a better application across formats and wouldn't be the typical EDH battle cruiser ability. It does however provide with some technical card advantage and can cheat out some powerful stuff, making it a risk removing permanents "enhanced" with a replacement. You are able to trigger it yourself but Ajani is also in colors that typically don't sacrifice their own permanents nor bounce them back to their hand. Well... green does have a slew of creatures that sacrifice themselves for lands or removal abilities, but in general these colors don't sacrifice their own. You can obviously utilize board wipes to facilitate their demise and secure you come out on top. It could be considered to change it so that you have to choose a non-artifact permanent, as many artifacts do sacrifice themselves.

,

Reflection:

I found it a bit more difficult than I imagined to create abilities that worked off of the Soul's X template that wouldn't just be incredibly powerful or incredibly bad, depending on cost and application. The concept is also heavily reliant on having creatures to be truly beneficial but I also think the abilities are strong enough to offset that drawback. The idea was to get away from the generic +1/+1 counters that in some terms signifies bringing out the power of the individual but is just so generic, boring, and done to death, and in that regard I consider this version successful.

The wording may need a helping hand, especially the +2 ability. In general tokens don't have abilities that grant them further abilities.

The flavor texts of all the Soul's X cards notes that Ajani sculpts these avatars (e.g. Soul's Majesty ) but it felt weird calling him Ajani, Soulsculptor... kinda running a bit too close to a certain other person of the Lorwyn-5.

Any feedback and suggestions are welcome.

Edit: I forgot to mention this before, but I figure this Ajani callback is destined for a supplemental product that doesn't go into Standard. First of all because he is quite powerful for typical Standard and more complex with ability keywords that is not explained directly on the card.

Totally disregarding lands, I'd cut: Everything Gus suggested, and Warstorm Surge , Wolf of Devil's Breach , Lord of Extinction , Grave Sifter , Counterspell (depending on how good your mana ends up being), Pull from Tomorrow , Urban Evolution (I think you want your ramp/draw to elemental-based, more efficient, or fix your mana), Titanic Ultimatum (take what I said about Counterspell and bring it up two levels), Conflux .

I'd add: the mana ramp Gus suggests and Fertilid , Smokebraider , Primal Beyond , Avenger of Zendikar ,
