Gideon, Ally of Zendikar Discussion

Hey man !!
I would suggest 24 lands cause of you have a lot of drop 4+ and you are using Marsh Flats .......so......
You are running 4x Serra the Benevolent , in this case i don't think that you really need Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Sorin, Solemn Visitor (I know that they are very good but Serra the Benevolent is the best by far). Sorin, Solemn Visitor is good because the +1 lifelink but if you use Vault of the Archangel .......is the same idea.
Finally, I would like to say that BW tokens is an amazzing deck because of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek on early game. If you don't wanna use this 2 cards, run to mono white tokens (Cheaper and more aggressive.
Mana base: 4x Marsh Flats
Sorry for my English, I'm from Brazil kkkkkkk
Espero ter ajudado ^^

I've used Lord of Innistrad with mixed success. I've found Sorin, Solemn Visitor does some heavy lifting by mitigating a lot of the damage we take from Bitterblossom while also giving a pseudo anthem effect. I'm also a little hesitant to swap out Gideon, Ally of Zendikar because all of his effects are relevant to our strategy.
I've actually been thinking about taking out a Godless Shrine for an Isolated Chapel for a while now to avoid unnecessary life loss, as well as swapping a Windswept Heath for a Tectonic Edge or Field of Ruin . Our matches agains tron are awful, so a mainboard option would be helpful.

Peut-etre Gideon, Ally of Zendikar ? Il peut de servir de anthem effect (+1/+1 a tout) et de token generator !

Mana base needs some work. Fast lands aren't great for you when your curve is so high. Also, there are planeswalkers that interact with creatures(like Samut and Ajani), but hardly any that make tokens to be interacted with. Why no Garruks or Xenagos? Elspeth Tirel , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and Huatli, Warrior Poet would also be good additions.

I think that in this deck you may use some Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , because the tokens that he creates are Knights, and they have sinergy with History of Benalia . Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can create (with the ultimate) his emblem, that it's like a lord to your tokens.
In the sideboard, I think that Sundering Growth can be a great artifact/enchantment hate card.

Hey, first of all, awesome deck! I’ve always loved tokens and Selesnya, so this is right up my alley.
If you’re looking for some options to optimize it and make it more competitive, I do have some suggestions. Congregate is cool and can certainly turn some games around, but in a lot of matchups it will be a 4 mana sorcery that gains you a bunch of life, but doesn’t stop your opponents infinite combo from killing you next turn. Emmara Tandris strikes me as something similar: an expensive play that has a good chance of being irrelevant when you cast it.
Now, lest it sound like I’m just trashing all over the deck, here’s a bunch of my favorite Green and White tokens cards, in no particular order, you might have fun with. Huatli, Radiant Champion , Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, Wayfaring Temple , Triplicate Spirits , Secure the Wastes , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar .
Hope this helps!!

Nice deck ! I agree on previous comment, Lightning Bolt is mandatory and should come in full set.
In my opinion you should also run a second Gideon, Ally of Zendikar if you really want to play with it.
Finaly, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a good card but I'm not sure you will get any chance to play it. When exactly do you have seven mana to spare ?

I've made some changes and now I've been having more luck with UWx builds. Spell Queller is actually really good for interacting with them and making a flying body to equip. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is better than you'd expect. Sword of Feast and Famine is great because it allows you to slam a 4-drop planeswalker like Gideon or Jace and then untap your stuff and hold up Cryptic Command .
I've been trying out Jeskai, UW Miracles, and Esper.
Jeskai Stoneblade started as a Delver of Secrets Flip deck because that's what I play in legacy. I've switched to Spell Queller since and I think it's a lot better. Lightning Bolt is good against the aggro field, but I suspect this deck will lose to BGx.
Esper Stoneblade gets access to turn 1 Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize . These effects are very good for clearing a turn 2 Stoneforge as well as for ripping equipment out of the opponent's hand on turn 3. And as long as you don't play too many it's entirely reasonable to have hand disruption and counterspells in the same stoneblade deck. In many ways Stoneforge is what allows those to work together. I'm not sure what the spell suite should be; is Supreme Verdict good enough for the mainboard? What about Lingering Souls ?
I'm going to try UW Death and Taxes next, and if that doesn't work mono-W D&T. UW gets Spell Queller , among other things. It was a legacy brew I saw awhile back and would like to try to port into modern.
