Ajani, Strength of the Pride Discussion

Looks cool,my opinion:
make sure to draw a line between non-lifegain angels deck and lifegain angels deck and streamline it into one direction. There are a lot of cards that support both, but if you combine both archetypes into one deck, you will end up with a so called split-personality-deck that suffers a lot in power.
- Have you tried Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Ajani, Strength of the Pride , Serra the Benevolent , Dawn of Hope , Nyx-Fleece Ram , Fountain of Renewal , The Book of Exalted Deeds

Ahhh, hello again Omniscience_is_life. I feel like you’ve seen me through most of the big changes in this deck and I am always happy to hear your input.
Monologue Tax has honestly done it’s job really well. It ramps me or keeps other players pace slower and I can benefit a lot from both. I think it’s gonna stick around for now.
My initial thought on cutting Elspeth Tirel is “BLASPHEMY!!” and I wanted to counter with cutting Skyclave Apparition instead, But when I think about it more, you make a valid point. Skyclave is more versatile removal, and i’ve cut so much artifact/enchantment removal in recent iterations, I really do need it. Between Elspeth and Ajani, Strength of the Pride she is definitely the weaker of the two. I will try cutting her. I think 3 board wipes is still sufficient.
As for flash/instant speed bounce, i might just drop a plains and slot Winding Canyons back in. Canyons, Emergence Zone , and the redundancy of fetching them with Weathered Wayfarer or Expedition Map should be plenty. Although I do still have a Vedalken Orrery laying around from Oketra’s early days.

Maybe Ajani, Strength of the Pride may be useful? Nice lifegainer, you would take advantage of the token’s ability too and last option is very powerful and pretty easy to achieve in your deck

Omniscience_is_life maybe. Angelic Chorus gets insane though. 1 creature cast ends up making 10+ life with oketra and the soul sisters. Running out of spots of things that feel like they can be dropped. Maybe a board wipe? I have 5, but each lends it’s own benefit outside of wiping the board.
Winds of Abandon is one sided
Fumigate gains me tons of life
Dusk recurs my most needed creatures afterwards
Not sure which is weakest....

Ajani, Strength of the Pride one sided board wipe, lifegain, and can create tokens that grow.

Swapped a couple more cards around:
Wrath of God is out for Ajani, Strength of the Pride . Ajani costs the same, usually comes in able to ultimate, and exile opponents creatures AND artifacts, and if not, he’ll gain us a heap of life so we can next turn. Basically another Elspeth Tirel .
Palace Jailer is out for Recruiter of the Guard . Basically, it was this or buy an Auriok Champion to ensure I get a life gain engine online as soon as possible. Auriok costs so much right now, and recruiter can be bounced and played repeatedly to find any number of wonderful creatures from our library.
Heliod, Sun-Crowned is out for Archangel of Thune . Archangel is just better, and I forgot it existed. Heliod’s job was to make things big enough to swing for a kill (sounds boring) or make stuff big enough to make pulling off wins with Altar of Dementia easier. Again, archangel just does it better.
That’s it for now.

Ooooooh! Love the feedback. I'm definitely gonna have to play around with the suggestions. I got the feeling I should increase my creature base, and I'm trying out different things. I'm probably going to replace Ajani, Mentor of Heroes with Ajani, Strength of the Pride Ty, ty.
