Gideon Jura Discussion

entheogeneral on my first super friend deck

1 week ago

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.

As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.

And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.

And as for three colors and colorless: Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Rings of Brighthearth, Contagion Engine, and maybe even Throne of Geth.

Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.

ajclarke on Protection at instant speed interacting ...

Apologies if I'm being dumb!

Assume Player A has a planeswalker i.e. Gideon Jura

Player B uses Lightning Bolt targeting Player A.

Player A finds a way to give themselves pro-red (sorry, I can't recall how this interaction came up exactly).

I'm unsure in this case how the bolt resolves. I understand DEBT, but in this case, the player is already targeted by Bolt, and I can redirect that damage to the PW which doesn't have pro-color.

If redirecting, the T part of DEBT doesn't count because I've already targeted, but the D part is redirected to the PW so goes through?

Or is this a case of the targets checking on both cast an resolution.

mindset905 Sure, I can swap Felidar Sovereign in for a Gideon Jura... But I have never been a fan of the big cat

TheVectornaut on Olivia and Gideon

You don't even need the Flaring Pain for this since Olivia Voldaren's first ability will turn an animated Gideon into a planeswalker even when damage is prevented. When the turn ends, Gideon Jura will cease to be a creature and thus cease to be a vampire. However, Olivia's second ability only checks that the target is a vampire upon declaration and resolution. Gideon not being a vampire won't cause you to lose control of him, although losing control of Olivia will. I've used this idea in the past to gain control of manlands with a Roil Elemental. If the control effect was an aura instead of spell/activated ability, Gideon reverting to a noncreature would cause the aura to "fall off" and you'd lose control of the planeswalker.

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

That one feels even more situational, Tirel actually builds the board that gains you life and is able to get 6+ 1/1 soldiers in a fairly short period of time, which I can't say for Timely Reinforcements, and since you can control when and what abilities she uses and is repeatable, I find it much more powerful. She is more expensive, but in a deck that plays Gideon Jura I find it a decent sideboard option.

I do like Sun's Champion much more and think it could help the deck out a lot, it can win a game by itself.

darkmatter32x on Olivia and Gideon

I'm too lazy to do the research. But what would happen at the end of turn if Olivia Voldaren somehow able to control an animated Gideon.

For arguement sake lets say Flaring Pain had resolved, then Olivia damaged an animated Gideon Jura using her 1st ability, then gain control of Gideon using her second ability.

Oh, sorry just realised that it was designed to be used on Gideon Jura or Gideon of the Trials

Tyrant-Thanatos on Gideon's defeat?

Uh... Gideon Jura and all of his other incarnations turn into creatures that are still planeswalkers. That's how.
