Ajani the Steadfast

3W

Planeswalker – Ajani

+1: Up to one target creature gains +1/+1, lifelink, vigilance, and first strike until end of turn.

-2: Put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control, and put one loyalty counter on each other planeswalker you control.

-7: You get an emblem with “if a source would deal damage to a planeswalker you control, prevent all but one damage.

[4] Loyalty

I’m honestly impressed. While I’m actually a fan of Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, I honestly very much like this new planeswalker. At a single white it makes him fairly splash-able, and starting at 4 loyalty with a -7 ultimate makes him a shoe-in for Super-Friends right next to Mentor of Heroes due to Doubling Season.

To sum up his abilities:

His +1 makes one of your creatures extremely powerful – +1/+1, lifelink, vigilance and first strike is nothing to shake a stick at.

His -2 puts a +1/+1 counter on all of your creatures and loyalty counters on all of your other planeswalkers.

His -7 is very interesting, but more limited than his other two abilities. He essentially makes it so your opponents cannot kill your planeswalkers with damage, causing them to just go to 1 loyalty no matter what.

Ajani overall is a very strong looking planeswalker, and I think that we’ll have a lot to look forward to with this planeswalker.

Until next time,
