Ajani Steadfast Discussion

Lanzo493 on Devoted Walkers

3 weeks ago

Something I’ve come to notice recently since I started making an Atraxa deck is that almost all planeswalkers have two colored mana in their casting costs. Even the three mana walkers (and the two mana one we don’t talk about) almost across the board require two colored mana to cast. Of course, the uncommon walkers from War of the Spark broke this model, but even considering that, fewer than 10% of walkers only have one colored mana in their mana cost. Ajani Steadfast is the only Ajani to have only one in his cost, for example.

Why do you think that is?

This is tricky - I like it!

There are a few decent prevention effects among these: Scryfall, the best for you probably being Light of Sanction .

Though you've likely tackled this angle fairly well... The best repeatable ones on the list are Story Circle , Circle of Protection: Red / Rune of Protection: Red - and the slightly spicier Shieldmage Advocate , Protective Sphere / Righteous Aura .

Urza's Armor is decent if you're using things like Pyrohemia and is useful to a degree vs Spellshock or Pyrostatic Pillar (also have you got Eidolon of the Great Revel ?) Similarly the ult of Ajani Steadfast seems good.

Elspeth, Knight-Errant for Ajani Steadfast that is an ideal swap no question~

In retrospect, Joe_Ken_ I dismissed Elspeth too fast. Should i replace Ajani Steadfast by Elspeth, Knight-Errant ? They have a similar price and CMC and I don’t know which would be better.

Also your deck may not be suitable for The Chain Veil , but you'll find great utility out of Oath of Gideon .

I'd also recommend Elspeth, Sun's Champion . She gives you creatures to bolster, is another boardwipe on a stick, and gives you an extremely powerful and game-winning anthem if you get her ultimate.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar Will also be great as he allows you to tempo on curve, gives you more tokens to bolster, and that emblem might be small but what it does is it turns all of your 1/1 tokens into 2/2s. Gideon turns them into 3/3s. Keep them shy of being a 4/4 and just decimate the board with Elspeth. An army of 3/3s is a lot more powerful then 3x - 4x 4/4s. Against multiple opponents, spreading out the love is a better way to win, overall.

I'd stay away from Ajani as he is kind of a bland Planeswalker and doesn't really help you much in this regards. Ajani Steadfast would be the only one I would recommend, and only because of his -2 that you get two shots out of.
