Ajani, the Greathearted Discussion

Hi! Cool deck I really love superfriends decks (I have one of my own with Golos, Tireless Pilgrim at the helm, can link the deck if you want). Your list looks pretty solid but I miss 3 cards.

1, Aminatou, the Fateshifter cuz Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Oath of Teferi you just win the game on the spot.

2, Ajani, the Greathearted is really neat, lets you put counters on your friends. So underrated in my humble opinion.

3, Contagion Engine really pulls its weight.

You could probably replace Nicol Bolas, the Deceiver, Ajani Steadfast and Inspired Ultimatum for those three.

Also if you are ok cutting some creatures Spreading Plague can be nasty.

Lastly you got a plus one from me, keep showing your friends Love!

Nice deck. Just a few thoughts, Ajani, the Greathearted seems like it could be a nice fit, providing a lot of counters on a decent board, while also helping your planeswalkers. Not sure how much you’re using it, but for extra redundancy of Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter is another interesting card. Tireless Tracker might be useful, since the clues do offer card draw that I think the deck lacks, plus it can give itself counters when you use the clues. Finally, with all the counters, it seems impossible to overlook Avatar of the Resolute, the card is incredibly strong in a heavy counter deck. I hope this has been helpful.

Man, all that text and I forgot to link you to the comment, ConstantVigilance lol. Please see my above post as a reply to your question.

As for the Planeswalkers I mentioned, they are:

Karn is higher in price now because, I suspect, Mycosynth Lattice allows you to shut down opponents in a hardlock. Lands are now artifacts, and their artifacts can no longer be tapped to produce mana as it is an activated ability, since it taps as a "cost" requirement.

I would +1 Kaheera, the Orphanguard and -1 Regal Caracal (too expensive/slow for modern)

also and since Kaheera gives vigilance, Ajani, the Greathearted is a bit redundant i would swap him for Ajani, Strength of the Pride or Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants or for a lower CMC Ajani, Caller of the Pride

Have you considered the new B/W 3 drop general in this deck he makes your tokens bigger and you can sac two human tokens to pop a creature power four or greater. i play something similar and he has been a house for me i also play Ajani, the Greathearted with this deck and his -2 to put plus counters on everything is fantastic with with hero and garruk late game.Deathsprout is also highly underrated in this kinda deck kill one thing draw a card and fetch a land at instant speed if you have chevill out if you have him and hero out you also get a human not a bad trade for me at four mana

Boza on Cheaper replacement of Dawn of ...

There aren't many cards as good as this. You can wait 6 months for standard rotation to make that cheaper. Alternatively, Ajani, the Greathearted is cheaper and works better in your deck.

Angel of Vitality and Path of Bravery are other good payoffs for having 25 or more life. if you think you can gain 4 life per turn reliably Angelic Accord is the best payoff.

I'd consider cutting Ajani, the Greathearted, Rally to Battle, Aegis of the Heavens, and I'd look for a card draw replacement for Return of the Wildspeaker since you'll probably never draw a lot off of it. a Pull from Tomorrow or a Blue Sun's Zenith might fit. A lot of the 1-shot combat effects in commander tend to fail, or at the very least are underwhelming. They look sweet, but you're better off packing your deck with removal and effects that stay on the board. I'd keep Tower Defense and nix the rest of the instant boosts.

As someone with a deck with the same commander, may I humbly recommend Ajani, the Greathearted? Not only can he pump your creatures and other planeswalkers and gain you life, but he also gives your giant army of wolves vigilance! One can never underestimate the value of 15 creatures with vigilance.
