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.

I would stick to standard, modern is a very quick inaccessible format at the moment. The game is too quick for this deck approach, sorry. I do like the deck for standard though and i would keep it like that.

i think you could make this deck more competative if you ditched:

4x Ethereal Absolution 3x Open the Graves 1x Helm of the Host

they are quite slow and and you already have divine visitation making you vulnerable to amounts of enchantment and artifact hate.

Then by adding some very aggressive 3 drops : History of Benalia , Resplendent Angel Gideon Blackblade .

this is important because why you are setting up your divine visitation they have other problems to worry about.

Not enough lands for a deck this high up the average cmc. Slim down on the weaker angels and favor to be mostly playsets.

it also strongly feels like you're looking to fit Resplendent Angel or Angelic Accord . if you do include these Timely Reinforcements also works pretty well with these and Divine Visitation .

More morbid suggestion could be Spawning Pit as it helps combo with Bishop of Wings and Divine Visitation to gain infinite life and every 1 mana you spend gives you an angel token.

Herald of War and Sephara, Sky's Blade are going in. Resplendent Angel seems decent but it costs $10 and looks like a creature version of Angelic Accord . Thnx for all the suggestions Joe_Ken_!

Aargus222 any mana rock you can get in there are good for the deck especially since angels generally have high mana costs. Herald of War is an angel that will help with the costs, but can take awhile to get going. Resplendent Angel is also pretty good since it will help populate your board with more angels.

Hey, good start for a budget deck.

Unfortunately, doesn't seem like you've done much research for budget card alternatives especially since spent a lot of time on the primer and it's well done for your first primer. I however can't imagine how you're content with keeping cards like Luminous Bonds, Eternal Isolation, Sudden Disappearance, Grow from the Ashes, Gift of Paradise, etc. and writing about them when there's cards that are the same price that are so much better. Too bad you don't have a higher budget because Lyra Dawnbringer , Resplendent Angel and Luminarch Ascension are all excellent Angel tribal cards. There's a nice $50 upgrade you could make here that would improve the deck a lot.

This comment is only about the manabase. Consider improving the manabase with some budget lands? 31 lands is low when playing many high CMC Angels which includes Rienne. Going to have a difficult time supporting a 3.7 avg. CMC with only 31 lands. Consider 36-38 lands? Maze's End looks out of place because when playing it you want to also play all 11 Gates, but can't play them all with only Naya colors. Without five colors going all in with a Maze's End strategy than Gates are not worth it in a manabase. You would be better off simply playing more basic lands than Gates.

Budget lands ($3 or less each) to consider adding:

Could add all these lands for about $15.

Lands to consider cutting:

  • Maze's End
  • Gateway Plaza
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Gruul Guildgate
  • Stone Quarry
  • Tranquil Expanse
  • Blossoming Sands
  • Rugged Highlands
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Unknown Shores

I offer more advice, other budget card suggestions. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.
