Monday - Ajani Vengeant

One of the more impactful planeswalkers from Alara. This guy is most useful for the ability to constantly throw Lightning Helices at your opponent to turn any sort of race heavily in your favor. The lockdown ability to add a counter is really just there to let you Lightning Helix more, but it can be useful in the right situation. The one-sided Geddon is great, but slow to come out. All in all, a solid Planeswalker (yes, my opinion of this card has changed).

In limited, the Lightning Helix ability is really nice, but the Geddon ability probably won't matter too much. A mid to high pick if you're in the colors.

Constructed - 3.5
Casual - 3
Limited - 3.5
BeJose 10. Ajani Vengeant

Glad to see most of the card i choose got into the Top10
Some of the Pros are calling this the best card in standard, I'd have to say that only bitterblossom is better.
The ability to lockdown creatures/vital lands plus a repeatable Lightning Helix is extremely valuable. If you actually happen to use the Ultimate ability thats game right there.
If you get this in limited and manage to drop it your opponent had better find an answer, fast.
In casual it has an easily splashable cost and excellent abilities

Constructed 4.5/5
Casual 4/5
Limited 4.5/5
