Blackblade Reforged Discussion

I cannot believe that there has not yet been a thread for this, so, I shall make one.
The next installment of the Signature Spellbook series has been revealed, and it is Signature Spellbook: Gideon.
I admit that I was certain that the next installment would be for Chandra, but it is more dramatically appropriate to have it feature Gideon, since it seems likely that he shall die in War of the Spark, and this also make it very likely that there shall be a spellbook for each of the original five members of the Gatewatch (Jace, Gideon, Chandra, Nissa, and Liliana).
The cards in this set are as follows:
The cards are very visually-impressive, but I am slightly disappointed, because all of them have already been printed in the modern frame style, and this series of products is a great way to reprint older cards in the new frames. However, I am glad that none of the cards are filler, as occasionally happened with the From the Vault series, although I do feel that eight cards is simply too few; ten cards would have been much better.
Also, it is so wonderful to see new artwork from Richard Kane Ferguson, since he has not illustrated a card for this game since Eventide in 2008; as usual, his artwork is amazing! I do hope that this means that artists such as Rebecca Guay, Ron Spencer, or Thomas M. Baxa may eventually illustrate for WotC, again.
What does everyone else say about this? What are your thoughts about the second installment of the Signature Spellbook series?

I was just laying in bed unable to sleep and thinking about Dakkon Blackblade (as one does). I got to thinking, there is a Blackblade Reforged card and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade , Demonlord Belzenlok had the sword and ol Gids is the current wielder. I could totally make an edh deck based on the lore of blackblade (plus some ramp so it can be not completely terrible).
My question to you is; if you were to make a janky lore based edh deck, what story in magic would you base it around?

Alright I'ma break this up into a couple parts. First let me say that I like the concept of the deck! It's pretty cool, and Mowu is a bad ass! Next a lot of these suggestions are going to be meta dependent so keep that in mind. Lastly I think you're too focused on equipment in a color that doesn't do equipment very well... I think you should play some more enchantments as Green does enchantments well! I also think that you should lean into the fact that Green is the best color for ramp, and that makes cards like Strata Scythe / Blanchwood Armor / Blackblade Reforged stupid good.
Here are some cards I think you DESPERATELY need to put into the deck as they are staples or provide a LOT of value.

Have you thought about any sort of legends matter cards in here? I can see Urza's Ruinous Blast , Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle , Blackblade Reforged , Thran Temporal Gateway , Jhoira's Familiar , or maybe even Traxos, Scourge of Kroog . I know these are a bit slow for what you're going for but they are some fun things to think on.

Actually, I don’t know. cdkime I agree, it is quite possible Lili gets a Deus Ex Machina- We all know Wizards would go there. My personal dream? Lili and Gids die.
Lili saves Gideon from the zombie army. Teferi slows Bolas down just long enough for Gideon to shank him with the Blackblade Reforged . But Nicol Bolas, choosing in his last split second to die in glorious spite, sacrifices his soul to envelop Ravnica in a massive conflagration of death.
Gideon, battered and weary, takes his last action- forming a bubble around the largest group of people he can find.
“This time I can save them, Erebos. This time, I win.”
Liliana falls to her knees. Well, she chuckles, live by the death magic, die by the death magic.
“It is a shame though. The moment I get free of a contract, I have to go dying and saving the multiverse.”

I agree with multimedia I use the 40 lands [minus one for every three other mana sources] 40 and 0, 39 and 3, 38 and 6, etc. It is the only way to create consistency with being able to get your land drops. Edh is a longer game but if you stall at turn five it doesn't matter how many powerful cards you have. You are also low on white mana sources for the cards you have [review the pie chart below]
On a different note I was a little sad not to see more Angel's and demons. I came up with a concept for an Angel's and demons deck that runs Lillian's contract. But I cant get it to something functional. This deck does seem to function similarly to my Elenda, a Rose as Sweet deck. I think Blackblade Reforged would go well here if your aim is to win with commander damage.

BUMP BUZZING CHROMIUM FOR SOMEONE ELSE!
Alright. Here's the situation. I seriously doubt Chromium, the Mutable would work good as an ESPER CMDR here. I've a lot of things to add at some point, but I'm unsure what CMDR to replace Chromium 2.0 though:
Oloro, Ageless Ascetic : We're playing powerful cards that best fit my Vorthos Deck based on "BMH: The UnExperience", if you want to poke fun at that name, not do something Orzhov () can do better w/o .
Zur the Enchanter : Don't get me wrong, he's awesome, but... just look at the number Enchantments I have already; not even enough to warrant this.
Sen Triplets : I seriously dunno how the Powerpuff Girls as Esperites would work as it just simply counts as only one opponent as a target each turn. Skip.
Sydri, Galvanic Genius : If she were a Legendary Artifact Creature, she would be WAY better than the aforementioned Sphinx that's more incorrect than The Riddler. Even so, this is a skip for the same reasons as the Hegemon herself.
Merieke Ri Berit : Err... Why would I use this, when I plan to update this deck with one Perplexing Chimera that, when one casts something good, I trade control over such a much needed creature anyway, while Eldrazi Displacer can easily give me back my Chimera. Now I just want to protect my Displacer though....
Aminatou, the Fateshifter : Awesome Walker, unsure if she'll do any good here; though this is part Value Town, so how should I know? Opinions?
Varina, Lich Queen : If I wanted to make a Zombie Tribal Deck, I'd use either her, or even Thraximundar ; & exclude anything involving "Gisa the Mad"; she's a (A kitten died as I said the B word, & is censored by #CATMEGEDDON), & clearly wants to kill both Stitcher Geralf , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , & everything they both worked on as "Impurities" to the undead. Kaya, Orzhov Usurper , & Teyo Verada both say hi, you Mad, Necromancing, Excuse for a MTG Character. I hope you get executed by the Inquisitors of Innistrad; by Guillotine! & if anyone tries to use Ghoulcaller Gisa, even Gisa & Geralf (See? No Links because Gisa the Mad doesn't deserve this crap! :D) for Zombie Tribal decks in the future, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born & Rooftop Storm both say the exact thing Anne Robinson will say to everyone as a former game show host: (Tips head) "You suck!" (Smirks like an asshole).
/endrant, & all further use of Gisa abusing Geralf in all errata, & decks with said errata; Geralf is wiser, & more reserved anyway. I can relate to Geralf more than that Kaya-Hating Brother Killer not deserving of life anyway. :D
Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign : Finally... something. While I do have some even costs here & there, at least this seems decent as I have more odd costs. I wonder...
Dakkon Blackblade : Are you an idiot!? Blackblade Reforged is basically the same effect, just a Legendary Artifact - Equipment. Skip for damn sure! &, Gideon Jura is using it now, after he was dubbed a crap leader of the Gatewatch by Nicol Bolas, & lost his Sural & Self-Determination! I bet he now has in his blood!
Dromar, the Banisher : Why the bloody hell would anyone run Monocolors still?!
Chromium : What the hell is Rampage? How does this work, & why am I taxed to keep this MechaGodzilla wannabe incarnation of one from Core 19 that's far better?!
(Any Partner CMDR Duos that have a combined Identity of ): (Rips one of them to show they suck.)
Yep, that's my thoughts of all the other Esper Legends. If you have something to say that could be used in this situation in place of Chromium, the Mutable , your opinions for a better substitute is very much welcome. It's just I'm running a COMPLETELY differing deck than what Esper normally runs.
Opinions are open for debate now. Oh, & about Geralf, here's his best quote as a warning to priests (Including Gisa the Mad as a Ghoulcaller.) as he zaps hell on Innistrad:
"Let those idiot priests tremble! A new era in unlife begins here and now. Oglor, raise the lightning vane!"
You have to admit, this is Geralf at his most badass. I don't even give a crud about "Olgor" anyway. PX
