One of my building conditions for a deck is that I have leastwise one Planeswalker. One that has continually impressed me is Ajani Unyielding. In Enchantress-style decks, or ones with few instants and sorceries, it often draws two or more cards each turn. The high loyalty and removal make for it to be difficult to kill.

My personal favourite planeswalkers is Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip. She offers immediate value as a land in the early game whilst still being a fantastic draw late.

Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer also protects herself quite well whiles bearing a game-winning ultimate. Making a 4/4 flying helps as well.

Vivien, Champion of the Wilds is another fantastic card. The instant speed is great in all matchups and, in the worst-case scenario, she cycles.

Lastly, and rather similar to Ajani, is Garruk, Caller of Beasts. In creature decks, he draws a whole lot of cards, flooding the board the very next turn. This card is great, and I am surprised people do not have it in more strategies. (I love it in Elves.)

DC_Geno Thanks for the suggestions! I do like that Ajani Unyielding! I have also thought about running Calix, Destiny's Hand What do you think?

Add some planeswalkers like Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Ajani Unyielding.

Why are you using Ajani, Mentor of Heroes? Ajani Unyielding works so much better for just one more mana.

Atraxa is one of my favorite legendary creatures in this game, and I also appreciate the pun in the name of this deck, so I certainly like this deck, very much.

Would you consider replacing Putrefy with Assassin's Trophy? For one less mana, and only a minor drawback, it can destroy any permanent, which I imagine may be very useful.

Also, your choices of planeswalkers do not seem to have a central theme, as if you simply chose many planeswalkers at random; was there a central theme or pattern to the planeswalkers that you chose?

Would you consider putting either Ajani Steadfast or Ajani Unyielding in this deck, since they both assist other planeswalkers?

king-saproling - Ah, a well-knowledged player!

When I reworked this deck, my goal was to make it rely less on the commander and thusly removed pieces such as Knight of New Alara and Lovisa Coldeyes, but there are some here I really like. I really only cast him with Evolutionary Leap, Purphoros, God of the Forge, or Gaea's Cradle.

Genesis Wave is a card I always knew somewhat what it did, but never truly read the card. It seems excellent in here, and I've been meaning to remove Ajani Unyielding.

I am not too fond of cards that merely ramp lands with X in the cost, especially if it may get not value. Animist's Awakening, though can be impressive, there is better I can do with my mana.

Lotus Cobra is one I own but isn't in here. It probably should be.

Stone-Seeder Hierophant is one I have never heard of, one of my avocations being perusing older sets for unseen gems. Though it can be powerful and is findable with Imperial Recruiter, it's ramp with summoning sickness on turn four, having but one toughness. Lotus Cobra seems more idoneous.

Avenger of Zendikar is quite literally perfect for this strategy. The only reasons I do not run it is because I do not enjoy having multiple of the same finisher across my decks and it's arguably a strictly better version of my commander. I couldn't do that to Hazezon. xD

Emeria Angel could get out of control quickly and I do love birds (thank you Beholden to Birds), but Field of the Dead is horrendously easy to find and more difficult for some decks to interact with.

Impact Tremors is more difficult to tutor version than Purphoros, whilst being far less impactful on its own.

Nature's Revolt is quite fun as wrath protection. I used to run Jolrael, Empress of Beasts for the same reason. Still, not my style, but thank you.

This deck already has quite a few tutors, and it doesn't actually make that many tokens afore turn five. The value in Enlightened Tutor and Imperial Recruiter is that they can find setup pieces early due to the low cost and have value later. Oracle of Mul Daya early, Ulvenwald Hydra later. I am not too fond of the high cost of Chord of Calling here, also because the deck has a fair amount of tutoring as is.

Green Sun's Zenith, on tother hand, looks lovely. I could easily see this in here, though a Dryad Arbor would be wise.

Tempt with Discovery tends to be a four mana ramp spell that finds one land. I do prefer a Pir's Whim or Hour of Promise.

I've tried Reap and Sow. Strip Mine does the job rather well, and four mana ramp for one land is heftily underperforming.

Creeping Renaissance is an interesting one, though the deck isn't actually that graveyard reliant. I'm rather copacetic with my Genesis and Eternal Witness loops.

I have also tested with Safe Haven, though it was just far too slow.

Divine Visitation can get out of hand very quickly, but I have it as a finisher in tokens. Best not to end the games the same way as other strategies, in my eyes at least.

I used to love Shields of Velis Vel. Oh, the blowouts it bestowed. I cut it when I made the deck less reliant on the commander, but I would love to use it again.

In summation, I like Genesis Wave, Lotus Cobra, and Green Sun's Zenith, with Shields of Velis Vel urging me. I merely must find out what to remove.

Walukut would be fun to include, though the lands slot is rather tight, and I refuse to remove Hammerheim. (It's never done anything. Not yet, anyway.)

Thank you for the comment. You obviously know the game well, and I'll have to look at some of your decks. :)

Thank you for the input!

I've wanted to find room for Elvish Reclaimer, yet I never could ablate a card. I enjoy Grapple with the Past, but I see reason for its exclusion.

I'll consider Squee, Goblin Nabob. It goes well with Survival of the Fittest, Faithless Looting, and Geier Reach Sanitarium, yet, save for those, it may be lacking for the rest of the deck.

Genesis is one I've loved in profuse, as with Vivien Reid, so I don't really wish to cut it.

As for Ajani Unyielding, farewell to it. The list already has World Shaper and I don't trow that it needs another effect like it.

Much obliged, and new changes loom.
