landofMordor on Planswalker protection combo?

Fog effects protect you from combat damage, and there are cards that grant you (the player) hexproof like Orbs of Warding so that no direct damage can be dealt.

Alternately, just play Gideon, Champion of Justice and give him tons of counters.

landofMordor I have never even heard of either of those two! Sunscour especially seems quite potent in this mix, Shining Shoal being a godsend in certain matchups (it being a source of your choice means even tricky to catch guys like shrouded infecters wouldn't be safe). Things like the Oath's tend to get a little clunky, I might sub some of them out; but I like the idea of keeping some aspects of them in use, even just to feed the scour later. The Shining Shoal I can see having quite a few handy moments, especially since it only takes on additional card. Thanks for the ideas! That's some I had never considered.

Gideon, Champion of Justice seems really strong, but again I worry when my opponent has no creatures, his plus seems a little weaker. Jura can have the same issue, but he grows faster. You are correct with the PW rule, one at a time, so I don't wanna cram too many; but I may adjust the amounts a little to accommodate them as mana sources. Might cut off some of the black stuff, less discard and target stuff. Fatal Push against gurmag angler feels bad anyway.

Again I am thankful for the feedback! Different perspectives helps me externalize the problem. Much appreciated.

Gideon, Champion of Justice is extremely hard to kill. I'd have him over Jura, because you can only have one Gids out at a time (if I understand PW rules correctly) and I'd rather have the one who effectively gives you 10 more life.

Then, I might investigate discard outlets available in BW...if your PW game is going well, then discard gives you some utility from your PWs in hand, who would otherwise be dead draws. Shining Shoal, Sunscour, and others like it come to mind, too. But you'd have to find what works for you, I think.

It's a strong deck already! I take it that one of AoZ's purposes in life is to give an anthem to all your Souls? At any rate, love the idea!

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

1 month ago

@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.
