Gideon, Champion of Justice

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.

-15: Exile all other permanents.

Gideon, Champion of Justice Discussion

Zehk on Counter Gideons [Modern U/W Gideon Tribal]

Sideboard Gideon, Champion of Justice for token decks? Gets loyalty for each creature your opponents control, though his ult wipes your other Gideons.Perhaps add one or two Djeru, With Eyes Open to tutor and protect your Gideons as well.

You seem to have a lot of cards that really doesn't belong here...

Ajani, Caller of the Pride... He's basicly just pay three mana get a permanent that exists.

Elspeth Tirel - Well she does things, can't argue with that, but with the amount of support you have for her, when is she ever going to be worth 5 mana?

Venser, the Sojourner - He's seriously a good card, but what use you have of him comes down to resetting planeswalkers that are low on counters until he ults. That's really underpowered.

Tamiyo, Field Researcher - She's better than the others, but again with your lack of support, I don't thing she's worth splashing an entire colour for. Especially not in a deck with Cryptic Command.

Gideon, Champion of Justice - He's just one of the worst cards ever printed in modern magic.

Jace, Cunning Castaway - Worst jace, and you are extremely low on support for his first ability.

Narset Transcendent - Is surprisingly bad for her cost. I think you can run her if you want, but with so few sorceries, you should at least consider cutting her.

The Chain Veil - I know you've kinda build the deck around this, and I understand if you wish to keep it, but it's really, really underpowered.


Doomed Traveler - He's fine, but you can find a better spot to replace him.

Sage of Epityr - He's also fine, but again, you can easily find a better card.


I would look into getting a better protective game. Wall of Omens is a fine and protective creature.

Gideon Jura + Gideon, Ally of Zendikar + Gideon of the Trials is a really good package in a superfirends style deck. There is also Jace, Architect of Thought And/or Elspeth, Sun's Champion. But ultimately you should watch out, having too many planeswalkers is rarely a good idea.

If you really do want to go balls deep into the planeswalker theme, (which I do not recommand), Savor the Moment is much, much better than The Chain Veil, and Temporal Mastery is also at least playable in that case. Also Contagion Engine is a possibility, but it's pretty slow, and probably shouldn't be in the main.

I know that this might burst your bubble, but emeria is really bad for this deck. Tapped lands are a big no-no for aggro decks and if you are at the stage of the game where the land is proccing then you have already lost. Basic plains are better. Ajani, Caller of the Pride's and Gideon, Champion of Justice's abilities are weak in this setup. Lastly, martyr of sands is questionable in this list, as it does nothing to support your tokens and it is not what you want draw at any point in the game.

Consider Raise the Alarm or Gather the Townsfolk, they are both good for tokens. Hero of Bladehold is another possibility to consider.

Kjartan on Can't we all just be friends here?

If you want to play things like walkers and big spells in the Esper Colors, you should probably go for a control shell.

The cards you should be looking into obtaining if that's the case (That aren't overly expensive moneywise), are:

Serum Visions and Opt are the best consistancy spells. They Allow yoy to filter your draws as the game progresses.

Path to Exile is the best Removal spell in your colors, followed closely by Fatal Push. If you don't find them too expensive, play them (5-8 in a combination of the twon is my recomendation.) Besides those, Go for the Throat is good, but don't play more than 2. Blessed Alliance is a very flexible removal option. Condemn is also playable. It's really good against Death's Shadow, but otherwise mostly just a replacement for Path to Exile if you can't get enough of those.

As for counterspells. You've got a lot of decent options. 1-3 Mana Leak, 1-2 Negate (or Countersquall if you feel your manabase is consistant enough). 0-2 Remand and 0-1 Spell Snare. Other than those there is Deprive, which I don't particularly like, and Logic Knot which really takes Fetch-lands (like Flooded Strand and Polluted Delta) to be worthwhile.

Lingering Souls is a super consistant both as a block outlet, and a damage rack. I would run between 2-4 in almost every slow modenr deck that has black and white. But it's potential increases and decreases with how likely you are to get it into your graveyard by your own card effects. ( It gets better in decks with Collective Brutality and Liliana of the Veil). If you do decite to play Lingering Souls, Sorin, Solemn Visitor can be a great planeswalker.

Esper Charm is flexible card advantage. It's great.

As for Mass Removal. I would run a couple Supreme Verdict, but Wrath of God is also an option.


As for what to cut from your current list, I feel like your very worst cards currently consist of:

Gideon, Champion of Justice, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Tezzeret, Master of Metal, Diabolic Tutor, Quietus Spike, Icefall Regent, Angel of Condemnation, Aegis Angel, Followed Footsteps, Authority of the Consuls, and Dictate of Heliod.

You can even add in Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Gideon, Champion of Justice, Gideon, Martial Paragon for more Gideon action.

Then, Deploy the Gatewatch, and "Oops! All Gideons!"

Cast Gideons earlier in the game with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Leyline of the Meek (goes well with Oath of Gideon or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar tokens). Get even more devotion action with Evangel of Heliod.

Do you think you'd need Mirror Gallery?

Ah, I don't know, don't take anything I say seriously. Like the deck, though.
