His collector number, no matter what set he's in, is always #1.
Coincidence? I think not.

His ultimate became better when Brave the Elements and Emerge Unscathed came out for white.

I recently got my hands on one of these guys and I feel like out of all the planeswalkers this guy is one of the planeswalkers that gets ignored the most (not a bad thing).

For 4 mana you really are geting a pretty good deal, you can pump him to gain life and set your self up for his final, but this only works if you have a strong defence, and often the avatar won't be able to break through the lines.

I feel were the most power lies is with his seconed ability. You can use him to continusly boost all your creatures (great for white weenie decks) and make it so you can attack without worrying about leaving creatures as blockers. A very powerfull ability that is all to often overlooked.

Ajani Goldmane is an intresting planeswalker and one of my personal favorites. While many people consider him weak since he does not have an ability that ends the game when it goes off, what makes him great is that he has an ability that sets you up to win that can be used the moment he hits the...

so what you do, once you pump out the avatar, lets say it is a 5/5 (5 life) pay 2, equip shield of the ritgeous, pay 3 more, equip behemoth sledge, now it is a 7/9 trample, lifelink, vigilant that keeps what ever it blocks tapped, block, and it is now a 14/16 and you are at 12, swing, play rafiq, swing with the 15/17 FS, damage, it is a 30/32 and you are at 27, normal combat, damage, 60/62 and you are at 57, it goes down to a 59/61 without the exalted boost on their turn, block again, 116 life and it is a 118/120, your turn, finest hour, by the time it is over, you are at 1900 and your token is at 1902/1904

of course, that is assuming your opponent survived the first strike when you were at 12 life, you know, the turn before ^_^

now, that is a little tricky to pull off, I will admit it, but it is doable, and ajani's last ability is great for a mono white fog+lifegain deck, I dont think Ajani is the best planeswalker, but he is up there, and great in an agro deck due to his second abi... (see all)

Just once I'd love to play Grab the Reins or Boros Fury-Shield against the Avatar, it would be way too hilarious.

Love him! However, I know what will happen if his Avatar meet Agonizing demise.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
