Ajani's Chosen Discussion
1 day ago
seshiro_of_the_orochi, that makes sense, but I know that most players like to have a great variety of options when playing this game.
Also, using Ajani's Chosen as a guideline, have you considered having the ability trigger when the aura enters the battlefield via any method, or would that make it too powerful?

Boggles might not be budget itself, but it contains cards and ideas you can use. I like the auratog/rancor to give (1g +2+2) to auratog, it makes for a great knockout blow even if its fragile- something every budget deck should look for. Mongoose being a backup plan and protection helps a lot with that. I'd still want a plan for spot removal - gatherer's regenerate is nice with push taking the place of path in many cases, but its going to involve keeping an eye on your meta for exile effects.
While sigil is a great card, cutting it would allow you to also cut abor and sprawl for more 1 mana enchantments, massively speeding up the clock.
If you keep it in the sideboard, you'd still have that 'grindy game' tool even if you aren't running it maindeck - you could even go for a full transformative sideboard trying to live in that 4-5 mana space with a Heliod's Pilgrim value package and value-generating answers like Oblivion Ring.
There are some interesting midrange enchantment options that might suit a budget list running elf/sprawl, with Season of Growth and cards like Setessan Training or Shapers' Sanctuary aiming to eliminate the card advantage drawbacks of enchanting stuff. Silhana Ledgewalker and Sixth Sense still kicks butt when it comes to just drawing a card every turn. Abundant Growth and similar might not be amazing in terms of payoff for one mana, but a set of the variants allows you to splash any colour easily, while still fueling auratog. Satyr Enchanter type effects is a payoff that might work, but is a removal magnet and thus ends up reliant on stuff like sanctuary anyway.
Ethereal Armor is the powerhouse in boggles for a reason- it might be a nonbo with autatog sacrifices, but the 'count the number of enchantments' effect is really, really good. Also, its cheap. All That Glitters is armour 4-8.
Totem armour is another tool to protect creatures, but at that point you are basically building boggles.
Best of luck with the brew- its a well supported archetype that hasn't made the cut in terms of tier1, but with a little metagaming and planning it'll play well enough to win FNM.

- Oblivion Ring on battlefield
- Leonin Relic-Warder ETB targeting Oblivion Ring
- Resolve Leonin Relic-Warder ETB exiling Oblivion Ring
- Felidar Guardian ETB targeting Leonin Relic-Warder
- Resolve Felidar Guardian ETB exiling Leonin Relic-Warder and returning to battlefield
- Leonin Relic-Warder LTB is placed on the stack
- Leonin Relic-Warder ETB is placed on the stack targeting ? (I think as Active Player, you can choose the order LTB/ETB or ETB/LTB but could be wrong, for simplicity put it LTB/ETB, either way nothing to target with LRW, Oblivion Ring is still exiled until you resolve the LTB, but targets are selected when an ability is placed on the stack)
Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel should be fine because he delays the return of the LRW. The Yannik, Scavenging Sentinel also doesn't target, so you can choose what to exile on resolution so if something happens to LRW in the meantime, you can still exile another creature. The loop makes a large creature like an Inkmoth Nexus.
Oblivion Ring + Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian will have the same trouble when the Oblivion Ring LTB/ETB enter the stack at the same time. But doesn't Parallax Wave + Felidar Guardian loop without the Oblivion Ring anyway? as long as you active Parallax Wave ability PRIOR to resolving the Felidar Guardian (and any 3 other creatures), then resolve the Felidar Guardian's ETB Exiling and returning Parallax Wave with 5 fade counters. Mentioning the Oblivion Ring just confuses it, I would remove that.
For infect beats, it is important to note that the primary Infect win-con is actually:
Lost Leonin + Arahbo, Roar of the World Eminence + Ajani, Caller of the Pride or Berserk or Duelist's Heritage (double strike). The other things you mention Grafted Exoskeleton/Triumph of the Hordes/Inkmoth Nexus are really secondary. Note: Triumph of the Hordes also turns ANY cat into a Lost Leonin + Eminence + Double strike for win.
I would get Ajani, Caller of the Pride back in, he's the best, not sure where he went. Hope this helps!

MTGSmith thanks for the kind words!!! yeah I've never been satisfied fully with the partner commanders, but seeing as Thrasios and Ravos are BOTH from Theros, I thought it was a flavor win at best xD (I hardly cast either of them, I'll put out thrasios if i need some emergency card advantage if I'm not drawing my enchantress effects) I'm really here for that sweet sweet Archon/Evening/guardian combo!
I did have Ajani's Chosen in the list at one point, but since I'm running 4 colors I've had a really hard time finding spaces for cards I want to add, the only places where I can really afford redundancy are card draw, ramp, and fixing. everything else is a unique effect or something that will help me find my pieces like tutors and such.(I'm not even running both ghostly P and propaganda, I dont even know who I am anymore tbh) I am thinking about cutting Calix, Destiny's Hand as he's just too slow and doesn't make enough of an impact on cast, and I already have his ult in the form of replenish. So maybe I'll add in the chosen for a backup if my archon gets exiled or stolen. or maybe add in that lab man for decking myself with eidolon!

I love what you've got going here man! When I was putting together my enchantments deck I kind of wanted to use black as well as it's probably my favourite colour in the game but could never quite find the right commander for me and I'm not a fan of partners, but your combo of Archon of Sun's Grace with Enchanted Evening and Grim Guardian is a really clean way to win and right up my ally! Have you considered adding in Ajani's Chosen as a backup token generator with the Archon? I'm considering adding it into my own list too just in case someone wipes my board or removes my Archon from play, just a little thought.
Either way I love the deck! +1 from me! :)
