Deck Primer / Description

This may look like a passive, defensive deck, but just wait until you start reaping the late-game advantages. As you bring out more of your life-gaining cards, you'll be able to stack a ton of +1/+1 counters on Ajani's Pridemate, transform the humble Lone Rider into a daunting 4/4 first strike + trample + lifelink, and trigger Serene Steward to stack +1/+1 counters on your other creatures.

This list isn't set in stone. Feel free to tailor the deck to your personal preference by adding or removing cards of your choice.

Below is a list of other cards that you may want to consider. Note that some of these are slightly more expensive in money and/or mana cost. If you're incorporating cards with a mana cost of 4 or higher, you'll need to adjust the land count to 21 or 22:

Aerial Responder
Alseid of Life's Bounty
Always Watching
Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
Angel of Invention
Angel of Vitality
Authority of the Consuls
Baffling End
Battlefield Promotion
Beloved Princess
Benalish Marshal
Blessed Alliance
Blind Obedience
Cast Out
Castle Ardenvale
Cleansing Nova
Conclave Tribunal
Dawn of Hope
Daxos, Blessed by the Sun
Daybreak Chaplain
Dazzling Reflection
Declaration in Stone
Faerie Guidemother
Fiendslayer Paladin
Gods Willing
Haazda Marshal
Hunted Witness
Hushbringer
Leonin Warleader
Linden, the Steadfast Queen
Make a Stand
Ordeal of Heliod
Oreskos Sun Guide
Planar Cleansing
Prison Realm
Sacred Cat
Seal Away
Selfless Spirit
Settle the Wreckage
Shalai, Voice of Plenty
Shefet Dunes
Soulmender
Stasis Snare
Stone Haven Medic
Sungrace Pegasus
Taranika, Akroan Veteran
Thraben Inspector
Triumphant Surge
Unbreakable Formation
Wall of Essence

The below cards may be at the upper end of a casual player's budget ($5 and above per card, depending on where you buy them), but provide fantastic value. Also refer to the above note about adjusting the land count, if you decide to incorporate cards with a converted mana cost of 4 or more.

Ajani Steadfast
Ajani, Strength of the Pride
Crested Sunmare
Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis
Gideon Blackblade
Heliod, Sun-Crowned (A more powerful replacement for Serene Steward; with Heliod, you don't need to pay mana to benefit from his triggered ability.)
Lyra Dawnbringer
Resplendent Angel

These cards enable you to gain even more life, but aren't legal in Pioneer. They're legal in Modern and Legacy:

Ajani's Mantra
Martyr of Sands
Path to Exile
Serra Ascendant
Soul's Attendant
Soul Warden
