demouse on Superfriends NEVER yield

Personally I would cut the black cards from this deck and just go Green/White. Path to Exile Needs to be in the main so that you can deal with early aggression and you should also be running Wrath of God effects since you have no creatures of your own. If you are determined to keep black then Maelstrom Pulse and Abrupt Decay Are where you should be looking.

Gideon of the Trials and Gideon, Champion of Justice make a neat combo especially since Doubling Season Affects the first ability of Champion of Justice.

tschiller on Gideon, the overpowered Planeswalker

@landofMordor Though about them too, especially about Oath of Gideon, but committed to tokens with evasion on the 3 mana slot.

@rcrimmins As I stated somewhere in the first comments, I'll stick with Gideon, Champion of Justice because of his +1 ability. Protect the emblem, that's the main target. For generating tokens I got Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad in there, which both are the better generators than Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Also the body you get with the 0 ability after 1 or 2 turns using Gideon, Champion of Justice +1 ability is way better than Gideon, Ally of Zendikars imo.

AEtherize is not on the list, because it only targets one player's creatures. Bonfire of the Damned fits here too.

Engulf the Shore is good sometimes, but the fact that you need other cards in play to hit the scariest creatures makes it seems too slow to be good.

Dusk, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, and other cards like that seem great as board wipes!

I don't put planeswalkers on my lists based on ultimates, because those are a goal all on their own, so Gideon, Champion of Justice won't cut it for this list.

Agreed, the whole point of board wipes is to destroy lots of things, even with hexproof. So Hex is not good enough.

As always, thanks for the help!

Instead of Thoughtseize you could consider Inquisition of Kozilek.

I'm still curious about the Gideon, Champion of Justice pick. Is it just because his + ability can be for more? If you're just going to sit on a Gideon wouldn't a more powerful Gideon be better? Maybe Gideon Jura?

AEtherize, Engulf the Shore... ? What about number specific cards ? Dusk/Dawn,
Elspeth, Sun's Champion -3 ? Gideon, Champion of Justice ridiculous -15...
I'm not really sure so I'm suggesting different things... The list seems almost complete I think.

Wouldn't Gideon, Ally of Zendikar be closer to what you're looking for in this token deck? Instead of Gideon, Champion of Justice?
