Planeswalker — Gideon

-4: You get an emblem with "Creatures you control get +1/+1."

Either works really. I've found Knight-Errant to be a little faster with a table of aggressive decks, but Sun's Champion has more raw power.
Realistically, any White planeswalker that can create a token the turn they enter is a viable candidate for an Oathbreaker of this deck:
You want an Oathbreaker that will give you shuffle fodder for Oblation immediately.

Okay, I think I'll start by asking: what is this deck meant for? Is this a deck you're building in paper/online or is it just a decklist you're working on? And if you're building it, what are your budget restrictions?
After that, I highly recommend fetchlands. With 8 plains you'll draw too many white sources of mana. And without fetchlands, Brainstorm becomes pretty bad.
Only 2 copies of Delver is pretty crappy. Either play the card (4 copies with some support, such as Daze ) or don't play it at all. If you want this to be a control deck, then I'd advocate for not playing Delver.
The sideboard in legacy is tricky. You can't go wrong with 2 Disenchant and 1 Pithing Needle . You should have some form of graveyard hate. Surgical Extraction is probably the best. Teferi, Time Raveler , Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , and more Narset are options for the mirror and other grindy decks. I've always liked having 2 counterspells in the sideboard, Flusterstorm being the default choice. Supreme Verdict can be great against creature decks, even if a little hard to cast.

You are running mono-white, so why not use the typical staple Honor of the Pure ? Yes, you won't get vigilance, but it's cheaper than Always Watching and your generated knights will also get the boost.
I think this deck has also no real reason for running only 2 Path to Exile . Run a playset!

Hello there. So I looked over the deck and I am finding a lack of consistency in your deck pertaining to your theme because from what it seems like, you have a lot of cards that do not fit in a token deck. Like the life-gain does not have a fitting role in your deck. You should possibly take Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar which would get some good tokens and such out and also would be able to make these tokens bigger. Do not worry so much about removal as well but if you cannot find any other cards to fit into the deck well, removal is good but that needs to be a last resort before anything else happens. Not enough lands as well, so start with 24 and probably keep it like that since this deck isn't running anything green to ramp up and I am not saying add green for that reason but green can pull off having less than 24 lands. Just thought I'd share my thoughts with you.

Me again lol. I was looking at the selection of walkers. I noticed 2 things. With 11 creatures. You need 1 or 2 more walkers that put out blockers. Guys like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , Garruk Wildspeaker , Sorin, Grim Nemesis fit the bill. You're also lacking walkers that put +1/+1 counters on creatures to have more to proliferate and make blockers bigger. Ajani Steadfast , Ajani, Mentor of Heroes , and Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter I personally like

Hey guys another update!
What I would like to try in the upcoming month is:
- Gideon Blackblade . I'm not expecting much from this fella, but his devotion for 3cmc, his ability to make some of my early creatures indestructible or have vigilance (very useful for the Archangels), act as an oblivion ring if unchecked, provide some beating too, and finally being another Gideon planeswalker he does synergies with Gideon of the Trials' emblem... Well it seems decent enough to give it a try!
- Replacing Gisela + Bruna with Elesh Norn , as I feel like what Brisela does Iona does it pretty much the same, and tutoring and playing Bruna doesn't always make me win whereas Elesh Norn has this potential to. It will also save me one card, which could be used to test something else like a 3rd Oblivion Ring , a Quarantine Field , the new Gideon ... And yes I know it's not an angel and it pains me very dearly! ^^

for you´re manabase I would put more Flooded Strand ´s and Windswept Heath ´s, the reason is that fetches lower you´re overall libary cards so you´re chances for getting better cards are much higher if you fetch ech turn, obviously Arid Mesa ´s are better, but I think you excluded them for beeing to pricey.

Have you played with Tamiyo, Field Researcher at all? Helps grind really well, and as a deck that is able to turn the corner or shift roles very quickly it feels better than other grind options like Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and even Jace, the Mind Sculptor in my experience. Also, while I see you have this in your maybeboard for your sideboard I would really recommend finding space for an Eldritch Evolution with all of those 1 ofs, feels great to effectively have more sideboard cards.
