I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!

Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:

  • Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .

  • When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.

While it doesn't have the said sisters the concept is the same. So the deck type remains the same despite lacking their namesake cards. The soul sisters in this instance would be Impassioned Orator and Ajani's Welcome .

Hey, thanks for the comment o/

Really Sigarda is a great commander for humans xD.

So, as for the cards, i considered Radiant Destiny over Vanquisher's Banner for its mana cost, but i really wanted to test the last because of the draw i have whenever i cast a human, but i'm willing to test Radiant Destiny to see if its better because of its early mana cost.

Oketra's Monument is there xD, the others are really good, but i don't have them at hand, ones i would definitely put are the Skullclamp , Champion of Lambholt and Increasing Devotion .

I did some modifications ( Haazda Marshal for Odric, Master Tactician and Impassioned Orator for Fiend Hunter ) but didn't tested yet, and i'm waiting for Thraben Doomsayer , Champion of the Parish and Mother of Runes , no idea what card i'll take off the deck for them xD.

As for Sword of the Animist , i really liked it because it's a mana machine both for the early as for the late game, it saved me when i got no mana. Tamiyo's Journal is a machine of draws and it helps being practically a tutor for a clue based deck (as i kind of tried to do but not enought xD), a late card but it played well.

Hope it helps o/

SeriousSquid on Insistent Angels

Tips. If you have recommendations I think I'd like something which can recover some value if all the spirits get taken out or if I'm ending up suiciding some lifelink tokens for Dawn of Hope . I basically added Impassioned Orator originally because opponents playing Ethereal Absolution was giving me head-aches and at least allowed me to throw Ministrant of Obligation onto the board for a minimum of 3x card-draw events off Dawn of Hope as they all come onto the board and immediately die while waiting for a Conclave Tribunal or something. Rising Populace is at least a cheap option, and the synergy with Teysa Karlov is nice but I'm hesitant.

Or maybe skip a Final Payment and just go for Kaya's Wrath and recover some tokens if the game gets stuck?

Murphy77 on Ajani (not Shrek) is life in Arena

While there are a range Ajani's Pridemate decks out there, a / version, such as Life-link Pride M is probably most rotation ready. Cards that are likely to become key to an Ajani deck will include Soulmender , Impassioned Orator and Vampire of the Dire Moon . While you will lose Resplendent Angel you gain multiple other creatures that grow in power each turn ( Twinblade Paladin , Gideon's Company and Bloodthirsty Aerialist ). By splashing Black you also gain Mortify , Murder and other creature-kill spells.

If you are enjoying this deck at present, I would not worry too much about rotation. I am sure that we will be able to keep similar decks competitive and fun to play.

Sworn Companions instead of Raise the Alarm could be a much better option if your going for a lifegain strategy. Ajani's Pridemate is one of your most important payoff cards if it sticks on the field for long enough as it can very easily run away with the game quickly. Having 4 instead of three could be a good idea. I might cut an Impassioned Orator for four Pridemates. You also seem to have almost no targeted removal in this deck, with all of your removal being boardwipes. Having Prison Realm , Or Conclave Tribunal in there in place of Lena, Selfless Champion to deal with pesky planeswalkers and creatures is a possible option.

Hope this helps!
