Gideon Jura Discussion

FNM latest result.

First game: Mirror match 2-1

-Lost the first match with opponent's Liliana of the Veil hitting the board first.

-Won Second and third match, my opponent sideboarded fulminator mage and Liliana's defeat to answer my planeswalkers and man-lands. I used Crumble to dust eliminating all of my opponent's Raging ravine.

Second game: Storm 2-1

-Won the first match, I destroyed Pyromancer Ascension while Liliana keeps going with her discard.

-Lost second match, my opponent has the ultimate opening hand for storm tried to kill Baral but was countered using Remand.

-Won Third match, Liliana again for the win and Nihil Bomb prevents the grave from flashbacks.

Third Game: Jeskai Control 0-2

-Gideon Jura and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar protected by counter spells is absolutely ridiculous.

Fourth Game: Mardu Midrange 1-2

-Won first game with Tireless Tracker and Dark Confidant, with having lots of card draw the game ended pretty quickly.

-Lost second and third game, my creatures were getting hammered from removals, around turn 7 or 8 my opponent came back using Obzedat, Ghost Council with fatal push in hand and no Terminate the game quickly ended right there.

I really like Mardu as well, it does lack in that creature category like you said though. You miss out on Scooze, Goyf, Flayer, Tracker, etc... You have four drops covered with cards like Chandra Torch, Olivia Voldaren, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, but the lower end of the curve suffers. I think Mardu's strong suit are planeswalkers and tokens and perhaps you should play to those strengths with creatures like Young Pyromancer, Monastery Mentor, and Butcher of the Horde or more super friends with Chandra Torch, Ajani Vengeant, Liliana, the Last Hope, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Gideon Jura, Elspeth, Sun's Champion. I think either of those options or a mixture of both is probably better than playing Tidehollow, Finks, or Brimaz.

As far as other card choices, some fastlands like Concealed Courtyard or Blackcleave Cliffs can help the mana base be less painful. Some lifegain other than Vents would be nice with Bobs in your deck, perhaps Collective Brutality, or Lightning Helix. This way your game 1's against burn don't feel hopeless. One other thing Mardu misses out on is hitting noncreature permanents since it doesn't have Pulse or Decay. To fix this you may need to play some number of Anguished Unmaking or Utter End.

TheDuggernaught Condemns actually a very good suggestion. That hadn't even crossed my mind tbh.

I was considering Death Cloud but I don't think I have a high enough land count to take full advantage of it, especially if I'm killing my own lands off. Gideon Jura is already stretching it at 5cmc. I won't say I'm not open to testing it though.

I think more Gideons would be good here. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is good with Lingering Souls because of his buff ability and Gideon of the Trials was strengthened massively by the recent rules change. Perhaps a "light" Gideon package of 2 Gideon of the Trials, 2 Gideon Ally and 1 Gideon Jura. It would detract from the tokens theme somewhat to cut the Elspeth, Sun's Champion and some of the rest of the high end to slot in a Gideon package, but I think it would lead to a lot of free wins when you emblem and your opponent can't deal with a walker, like against Lightning Storm.

My apologies for being unprofessionally slow. My mind twists are from the year 1995, not sure which version that correlates to; my Gideon Jura is m12 (the good version); my Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury is from commander14 (so not foil). I am still interested in your Tamiyo, the Moon Sage.

I've been going back and forth on the Nahiri, the Harbinger for a few months now. I like having her there as an option but I think I'm heavy enough on the other win conditions that I don't need 4 of her.

The Gideons are working out great and I would highly recommend a Gideon Package for anyone with Lingering Souls that can fit the double white in their mana base. I'm using a light Gideon Package myself, I've seen heavier Gideon Packages going up to 6, 8, even 10 Gideons, and I've also even seen non Souls lists using a light Gideon Package with Gideon Jura at the top. Gideon of the Trials was medium good before the rule change, being able to have multiple Gideons out at the same time makes the emblem critically better.

Mandalorian Thank you very much for your feedback, I appreciate you taking the time to give suggestions.

I have added in Gideon Jura as he looks pretty solid when it comes to protecting your life total.

If I was able to get 2x Cryptic Command would you then remove Ojutai's Command?

One thing I don't understand are fetch lands.. Why would you draw a fetch land, play it, then sacrifice it and lose a life when if you'd replaced it with a basic land it would produce the same outcome?

I have however added in 2x Hallowed Fountain and 2x Celestial Colonnade


xyr0s Thank you also for your time to give me some feedback and advice. I originally had the Nyx-Fleece Ram because I had Archangel of Thune but decided against her.

I understand Thing in the Ice  Flip doesn't work well with many creatures, I would hate to take it out however as I love the concept of it.

Do you have any creature suggestions? Would it be bad to play 2x Icefall Regent & 2x Frost Titan over 4x titans?

Even though they don't survive sweepers?

Thanks again

If I go attacking with an animated 6/6 Gideon Jura by using his last ability, and my opponent flashes in a Stunt Double attempting to become a copy of Gideon, what would happen?

Would Stunt Double die as a state-based action because it copies the creature and planeswalker types of Gideon and has no loyalty counters on him?

Would he just become a 6/6 white Gideon Jura planeswalker creature with "Prevent all damage that would be dealt to this guy" ?

Would he enter the battlefield with loyalty counters because he's a planeswalker? (if he copies the planeswalker type).

Would Gideon just be an illegal target????

Pls give answer.
