Planeswalker — Gideon

+1: Put a loyalty counter on Gideon, Champion of Justice for each creature target opponent controls.

0: Until end of turn, Gideon becomes an indestructible Human Soldier creature with power and toughness each equal to the number of loyalty counters on him. He's still a planeswalker. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to him this turn.

Wow really nobody responded to this thread when i was on holiday! that is suprising Giving serious amounts of judement to strangers. maybe make a new thread and forum post when you make your next set of changes maybe the large amount of messages is off putting to weaker people :P

Here are my two pence on each of your questions i will reply later in the week about more cuts and wraths :)

What other Walkers from War of the Spark should be chopped?

In General i do not think WAR plansewalkers are great for super friends due to the lack of up-ticking abilities the ones you have seem a great fit though! the only ones lacking an up-tick are ashock, narset and saheeli. Ashock and narset are great FU cards to other EDH players and I believe fit nicely. Saheeli, Sublime Artificer i don't see as much of a reason behind.

I do not think you truly understand Gideon, Champion of Justice s power he exiles all other permanents including lands. It does not matter if they hate you they cant do anything :D

With the amount of fetches you currently have yes i would remove Crucible of Worlds if you were to ever put more in put it back in ( Ramunap Excavator works similarly)

I put in Sundial of the Infinite for End Step effects; allowing for stuff that should be gone EOT, to stay. Do you think this should be cut?

this does not work as well as you think as you still have a clear up stage with sundile. so yes I would remove it.

Is Chromatic Lantern really better than Prismatic Omen ? Then why do I have Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter for a huge amount of mana for every one +1/+1 Counter on a creature each (One each; no higher.)?

Its only better because it is a mana rock as well or if you are running bespoke effects like Prismatic Geoscope . either/both are good. you dont run enough creatures or counter synergy to run Jiang in my opinion.

What do you think is the better CMDR: Najeela, the Blade-Blossom , or Niv-Mizzet Reborn ? Both already seem really badass on their own.

Najela can be a win con on her own but niv is an independant draw engine , personaly for this deck i would run Niv however both work.

Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage (Combine her w/ Crucible of Worlds .), even Ignite the Beacon seem really good here; but what are your thoughts on them?

Dependons on how many tutors you want, ignite the becon is great especially at instant speed! both others are great as well as you will notmally have non creature spells or lands to play.

I didn't think Dream Halls is good here. Your thoughts on this? It seems to be a staple here in Niv-Mizzet Reborn , but what about Najeela, the Blade-Blossom ? I'd like to

yes i do not think it is great in this deck due to it super charging your opponents as well

Also, SP3CTR3_chelts, I still need some alts for Aminatou, the Fateshifter in the situation I don't have enough Blink/Flicker in play. Do you think Ashiok, Dream Render sucks as well?

I'm looking into flicker affects but your choices are not numerous. I always like to run at least one peice of GY hate in each deck so he fits but if you are short on spaces remove him.

Rowan Kenrith is da bomb doubling all planes walker affects are huge!!!! as they are activated abilities.

Ill have a look at some more wraths and cards to cut soon but i am running out of time :)

BUMP! BUMP! B-(Ran over by a Bullet Train in Nippon.)

You probably are wondering what I want for this... Well, eat this:

I still need some alts for Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Felidar Guardian in the situation I don't have enough Blink/Flicker in play. Do you think Ashiok, Dream Render sucks as well? I can think of two Gideon's better than Gideon, Champion of Justice : Gideon of the Trials , & Gideon Blackblade . Do you think either is good; & if so, what would you recommend over Champion of Justice? I'd like to keep Crucible of Worlds for my Landbase (Cycle Duals, & Tap Fetches.); your opinion? Everyone hates Rowan Kenrith , & Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast for their huge drawbacks. Should I keep Saheeli, Sublime Artificer for the fact she can do the former 2's ideas, but better? I have Sundial of the Infinite for EOT effects. Should this be cut as well? What other Walkers/Wraths to Add/Cut? What's better between Chromatic Lantern , & Prismatic Omen ? & is Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter good here? We also have Ajani, the Greathearted here to back him up. Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage , & Ignite the Beacon / Call the Gatewatch are all awesome here; but what are your thoughts? Also, maybe your help could be good here again, DrkNinja? I'm in one hell of a bind...

BUMP!!!

Decided on Najeela after all. But what I still want to know is what cards to cut in order to get to 100 overall.

Also, SP3CTR3_chelts, I still need some alts for Aminatou, the Fateshifter in the situation I don't have enough Blink/Flicker in play. Do you think Ashiok, Dream Render sucks as well? I can think of two Gideon's better than Gideon, Champion of Justice : Gideon of the Trials , & Gideon Blackblade .

I have Sundial of the Infinite for EOT effects. Should this be cut as well? What other Walkers/Wraths to Add/Cut? What's better between Chromatic Lantern , & Prismatic Omen ? & is Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter good here? We also have Ajani, the Greathearted here to back him up. Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage , & Ignite the Beacon are all awesome here; but what are your thoughts? BTW, I've already decided on Najeela, the Blade-Blossom as the CMDR.

Though I have one last question in addition: Everyone seems to be getting into Oathbreaker. In terms of Signature Spells as used in the other Command Zone (4 Max if you include Both Kenriths; & their respective cards.); does that spell have to apply w/ the Walker's Lore? I feel this is why everyone's breaking the rules of the format; & some walkers don't even have such a thing; especially since this only applies to Nonpermanents only as the Signature Spell. Is everyone really breaking the rules, or what am I missing out on? GREAT... Now you made me want to make an Inked Gaming Custom Playmat w/ 4 Command Zones. XP

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Thanks! Thought I was about to go insane w/ whatever post I made before you came along. XP

Anyways, Aminatou is kept. But I'd still like some options outside of her that can blink my walkers like mad; allowing for value that can even put The Chain Veil to shame.

Also, Damn... Didn't think Tibalt #2 sucks all around... XL Although, while we're on the topic of WAR, What other Walkers from War of the Spark should be chopped? Ashiok #2 is basically Stranglehold w/o Time Stop. I can't believe there are that many I like...

Hmm... Alright. The Golgari Queen gets the Perseus Effect (Having her head chopped off.).

Huh. Personally from experience, Gideon, Champion of Justice would get a lot of hate just from exiling a whole board; which in such a case is more problematic to you, than your enemies; & they'd be pissed. XP Frankly, I was thinking of either Gideon of the Trials , or even Gideon Blackblade . Maybe you could check either out? One can lockdown anything that can do damage, become a Creature/Walker Hybrid (As w/ all other Gideons...), & keep him alive, you can't lose, & your opponents can't win. The other is a literal Exile target nonland Permanent w/ ability granting until EOT. Gideon #7/8 even is a 4/4 Human Soldier creature with indestructible that’s still a Walker. for each of your turns, & damage won't phase him during your turn. Both are even low CMC, but I wonder what you'd like more...

As for colors, Purple Mana would've been a good choice; if it existed, which it won't, & never will. I do though, have at least one other idea; but I'm basically a blunt, mental, overlyintelligent being w/ info nobody cares about. XP , because of this, is out. Leaving me w/ one of two Golgari Swarm colors: , & . Though, I believe the world is more flawed than it was than ever; cutting out from the question. though... I do consider myself as a Cynical, Brutally Honest, & Ambitious entity myself. Easily allowing into the fray. Why hasn't the Shards of Alara Block made actual Shard Watermarks again? I just... Dunno.

But, yeah. I think I might actually be related to a non-necromancing individual; though I wouldn't be surprised if the Shard of Grixis rejected me. XP But for now, more questions:

Should I remove Crucible of Worlds ? I actually use it for the Landbase I'm using, be it Cycle Duals, or even Tap Fetches.

Since everyone hated Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast , I actually found another card that works WAY better; Saheeli, Sublime Artificer . But should I keep it? Casting for free tokens is awesome, but what to target? I suppose my rocks, but can I do this over & over, or does the "Another" part require different targets each time?

I put in Sundial of the Infinite for End Step effects; allowing for stuff that should be gone EOT, to stay. Do you think this should be cut?

What Walkers should be cut to reach 100?

What Wraths would you suggest?

Is Chromatic Lantern really better than Prismatic Omen ? Then why do I have Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter for a huge amount of mana for every one +1/+1 Counter on a creature each (One each; no higher.)?

What misc. stuff would you cut; and/or add in their stead?

I think these are 20Q enough. I personally want to know your ideas on these, please. Thanks again! ^_^ Didn't think I'm (Grixis) ideas though. LoL. XD

What is better: Aminatou, the Fateshifter X Venser, the Sojourner ?

For this I think Aminatou is better as she can be used to rest planes walkers or combo with felidar and also ult with doubling season (would get rid of your doubling season though). I do understand that Venser's abilities are a bit more powerful but i would go with aminatou.

Do Tibalt, Rakish Instigator , & The Wanderer do too little here as well?

short answer ditch tibalt keep the wanderer.

The reasoning is that anydeck that cares about life gain will get rid of him pretty easially and his tokens do not mean much in edh and anyone who does not care will just ignore it. The wanderer on the other hand is a nice addition preventing your planeswalkers from being burned is great and she is exile removal! A great addition to the deck.

& is Vraska, Golgari Queen really that bad?

not if you have enough tokens but i would probably not use her for the deck unless you are going with najeela as the commander. either of your commander choices (najeela or niv) would make good i would go niv if you are looking for a longer game or najeela if you want a wincon on legs.

"GJ-Combo-Finish-Man" Jura for Superfriends? I really would like to add one here.

my personal favourite is anything that can allow you to activate abilities twice , Gideon, Champion of Justice and a board full of opponents creatures. up tick him to massive and nuke everything, then kill everyone off one by one with gideon as they dropp their first couple of lands.

And judging by how many people answered before me your colour is purple the forgotten colour of magic :(

Hope this helps and id be free to attempt to answer anything else you have quires?

Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth can be part of a package to go infinite for Gideon's Company + Gideon, Champion of Justice . You either need a lot of white sources or a way to filter mana, but if you're going Gideon's then thats a neat way to win.

Hello, StrykerMGS! It's a great idea. By high cost, can be placed in place of the Gideon, Champion of Justice . But it sure is a better card to get on the deck Iroas, God of Victory. Thanks for the sugestion!

Your deck is pretty solid. If you were looking into any other planeswalkers to bring something different to the table I ‘d recommend Gideon, Champion of Justice. It gives you a little bit of an offensive play if the game state is getting stale. Another plus is he is pretty cheap money-wise!
