Deploy the Gatewatch Discussion

Tarinith on All color Justice League (EDH)

thanks for all the suggestions guys! its been a while since ive played but i have recently been trying to get back into it, updated deck to better help its consistency and adding Deploy the Gatewatch has helped alot. thanks WillySmasher for that and thanks pizzagod13 for Silent Arbiter. im realizing that Doubling Season is a card this deck really needs for burst turns, but any ideas for cards that return cards to my hand or deck would be amazing. cheers!

I think Deploy the Gatewatch , Call the Gatewatch and everybody's oaths would be well worth it here.

The other fun one is Honor-Worn Shaku the new legendary rules let you tap your planeswalkers for mana.

I would personally put Teferi, Temporal Archmage for his neg 10 becuase of how useful it is for planswalkers abilities to be instants. I would aslo considier The Chain Veil so you can get planswalker rolling along faster. You might could aslo useOath of Nissa Oath of Gideon Oath of Jace Oath of Liliana and Oath of Ajani. I know you have a few sideboarded but they are quit usefull. You could also use Djeru, With Eyes Open to get a planswalker you need and keep them alive. Two more fetch planswalker spells areCall the Gatewatch and Deploy the Gatewatch. You can also use Contagion Engine Fuel for the Cause and Tezzeret's Gambit for extra proliferate. A good side board spell is Supreme Verdict. Sorry for the long comment hope this helps.

A couple more inquiries about your thoughts on certain cards: Tezzeret's Gambit , Deploy the Gatewatch , Rhystic Study / Mystic Remora , Mirari's Wake and other mana doublers?

Captain Sisay, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Maelstrom Archangel, Doubling Season

Can't see any real use for Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip, Steam Augury, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded (since you dont have Doubling Season he's way too slow), Mechanized Production and Deploy the Gatewatch. The last card won't work in this deck.. I had the exact same deck idea only with 25 walkers and even then it didn't work all the time.

SirFowler on MagicalHacker - List of All Free Value Cards

I'm not sure why you're limiting the definition of free value tbh. The title of the list is 'all' free value spells, yet you are only limiting it to permanents that only interact with other permanents. Doing so lowers the expectations of those who come here to see cards that give you free stuff when there are many more cards that give you free value. All cards with cascade for example, such as Maelstrom Wanderer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Etherium-Horn Sorcerer. Not to mention instants/sorceries with rebound such as Recurring Insight. And what about instants/sorceries that put permanents into play like Collected Company or Deploy the Gatewatch. Maybe you should change the title to say free value permanents so people aren't confused. You can do what you want, but it's just a suggestion.

Deploy the Gatewatch as a 1-or-2-of might be fun.

Have you considered using either of the Oaths in your colors? Oath of Gideon in particular looks good with the token substrategy and the lasting boost seems sweet.

Maybe a 1-of Liliana, the Last Hope?

Nice balance in the mana base. Well done.

Have you tested with Genesis Wave as a complement to Deploy the Gatewatch?

Comeuppance and Djeru, With Eyes Open might be useful for protecting your super-friends.

Happy brewing!
