You can put Anthems in your deck if you want!

From the Official Gatherer website: https://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=562478

"A creature's base power and toughness are the power and toughness printed on the card"

"If another effect sets a creature's power and toughness to specific numbers or values, those become its base power and toughness" (That means cards like Biomass Mutation)

"If an effect modifies a creature's power and/or toughness without setting them (e.g.: Glorious Anthem), that is not included when determining its base power and toughness."

But your card choices are already great, so not a major loss :-)

One other planeswalker I would maybe suggest for you, is Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants!

Bravo_Christian this deck is kinda all over the place with what its looking to accomplish. you have 6 drops and are running tapped AND bounce lands that dont really do a whole lot until the following turn. Even those big drops dont win you the game when they do finally get played. I would consider a more succinct plan. Soul sisters do well when their life total gets above 30 and if your plan is to stay above 30 and then ground and pound, i would focus on that.

Martyr of Sands and Serra Ascendant are cheap cards that can help you accomplish that goal. cut your super expensive planeswalkers as they dont help you win right when they hit and are causing a huge burden on your mana base. planeswalkers are fine, i personally love them, but if they arent an immediate threat then your opponent isnt going to care about them and they didnt really do anything anyway.

i would say if youre absolutely hellbent on playing planeswalkers than pick some that are a cheaper and more effective. such as Ajani, Caller of the Pride or Ajani, Strength of the Pride or even Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and then you can compliment him with a planewalker thats going to pump out creature tokens like Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis. I think your curve should max at out 4 and in order to play your cards effectively youre going to need to run atleast 24 lands. i also think Brimaz, King of Oreskos could help with the gameplan, hes a big body with vigilance and puts more creatures out.

i apologize if this came off as harsh, i just think youll have a more fun, more effective time being able to cast efficient and effective spells during your games. hope this helps a little bit.

Hey there, and kudos! You get an upvote from me. I just put together my own decklist for this command pair, and was here to look for ideas for myself. I haven't put a deck together properly in about two years, so I'm a bit rusty :) and like you, it's pretty theoretical for now. Your list looks quite a bit better than mine overall!

I tend to think Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants is the most efficient planeswalker here. With Lae'zel on the field, he's seven loyalty and four counters for four mana. And in an optimistic case where we actually get to pull off the ultimate, it is POWERFUL.

Also suggesting Damning Verdict, but in a particular way that I understand very well why you wouldn't want to include it. Just in case you hadn't considered it before.

Anyway, for my part I'll be scouring the cards you've included and I haven't and considering what swaps to make for myself here. Kudos again!

Take out Garna, the Bloodflame, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Rushblade Commander, and Intimidation Bolt and this deck is pioneer legal. Some of them aren't all that good here anyways and they're not worth being in a much higher power format.

Cards that are also not very good: Chief of the Scale, Goma Fada Vanguard, and Pacifism. Cut Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants if you have trouble finding space for other cards.

Your best creatures would probably be Blood-Chin Rager and Chief of the Edge, so run 4 each.

Since you have Herald of Dromoka, you can do some pretty cool things with exert creatures. Brave the Sands also has this effect. Ahn-Crop Crasher, Combat Celebrant, Devoted Crop-Mate, and Glory-Bound Initiate are all really good warriors when paired with vigilance. Resolute Survivors too if you want to commit this route, although Brutal Hordechief is probably better. Path of Mettle  Flip is an interesting one too for grindy matches, maybe more of a sideboard card.

If you want more wide aggro, run Bloodsoaked Champion and either Gutterbones or Zurgo Bellstriker, take out vigilance or toughness effects, and work to increase power. You can win with a couple Arashin Foremost, Brutal Hordechief, and more Secure the Wastes.

Fatal Push is probably the best pioneer removal spell, but if you find larger CMC creatures in your meta Cast Down or Heartless Act will hit almost anything.

For mana base, Battlefield Forge and Caves of Koilos are better budget dual options than anything that comes in tapped. Secluded Courtyard and Unclaimed Territory are almost auto includes for tribal.

Hey hirurux,

Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World since the pre-con Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

I found having too many cats wasn't very useful, I went a bit extreme, down to 14 cats, but 28 is a lot. Arahbo, Roar of the World only Eminence triggers one cat, and unless you're in a state with a ton of mana to activate the ability for multiple cats, not really needed.

How I solved this problem, was more creature tutor cards (instead of more cats), so Sylvan Tutor , Time of Need , I got a Survival of the Fittest for xmas one year which was cool. Chord of Calling , Eldritch Evolution even Congregation at Dawn are all viable to. The right cat at the right time vs. drawing more cats. Initiate's Companion , Leonin Skyhunter , Steppe Lynx feel like some easy cuts.

Three Visits was reprinted in a current set, gives you another Nature's Lore .

Are you primarily trying to kill everyone with combat damage? Beastmaster Ascension maybe?

I would get some trample in there Shadowspear and Rancor perhaps, that way 1/1 tokens don't become a nuisance to you.

Fumigate seems wrong.

Might reduce in lands, do you find yourself flooded, eliminate anything that comes into play tapped with no strong ability. Your not running toward a Tooth and Nail or anything so likely can miss a T4-6 land drop and still be in good shape, can also Land Tax or Archaeomancer's Map or Kodama's Reach to get more lands in hand. Evolving Wilds , Krosan Verge , Path of Ancestry could be some easy. If you're worried about mana fixing, fetch lands are great Windswept Heath but also the off-color ones like Wooded Foothills , Flooded Strand , etc.

Teferi's Protection to dodge board wipes?

I might add an alt win-con, Triumph of the Hordes might be one, but having a backup plan, maybe Grafted Exoskeleton or perhaps Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants to bring back Lost Leonin . Bala Ged Recovery  Flip for Triumph of the Hordes , I dunno something?

The Great Henge !

Hope you find something useful here. +1

I also built a Rhys deck (on a budget though) na na na na, hey hey, goodbye(overwhelming tokens) here's a little bit of what I have learned playing it

Biowaste Blob can get big fast with your token doubling

Dauntless Escort has saved me many a time from a board wipe

With Immaculate Magistrate and Timberwatch Elf you can activate their ability in response to an opponent declaring blockers to buff up one of your little guys to kill or severely damadge an opponent

End-Raze Forerunners and Treeshaker Chimera can be game-winners

I also like using Glare of Subdual to tap down my opponent's creatures with my tokens

Citywide Bust can harm your opponents while leaving you practically untouched

As for planeswalkers, I run Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants and I prefer Elspeth Tirel so I also run her

Finally, my favorite combo in this deck is Phyrexian Rebirth + Fresh Meat

Good Luck in your war

Omg that article XD!!!

Ajani would definitely be a flavor win, but I feel Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants would be a better fit than Ajani, Strength of the Pride. I don't see myself being able to abuse his ultimate since I don't have a lot of lifelink, even with his +1. He's definitely better suited for a dedicated life gain deck.
