Gideon, Martial Paragon Discussion

Hey! Looks good as a strating point! Solemnity is a little slow to be a real answer to the energy decks in the format and I'd almost recommend trying to just stay more aggressive than they are! Hashep Oasis is defiently still very powerful in combination with Adorned Pouncer and I would defiently suggest keeping some! Gideon, Martial Paragon is okay but honestly, I'd say you're better off with more creatures, Resilient Khenra is very strong and would recommend up-in the amount you have of him. Lastly Heroic Intervention whilst powerful vs cards like Fumigate + Sweltering Suns is a little worse in the main board in most situations vs Blossoming Defense (which allows you to be more aggressive aswell) Id recommend trying to move the interventions to the side and fitting Defenses in instead.All in all its a fun/good list that won't embarrass you at all! Very powerful cards in here that'll win you a lot of games!

If you're looking for other standard decks to try I have a few up that are p fun and powerful (I at least hope so haha)

Ic ic. Hazoret is a she. Triggered. Anyway, I figured with all the 2 and 3 drops and pretty much 0 4 and 5 drops (couple glory bringers). You would be out of cards by turn 4 or 5 maybe. I appreciate it being budget, but if anyone looking at this has a couple Hazorets.......I'd sliiiiide her into my DM's if you know what i'm saying!!!!! Also!! You know who might fight well in here? Gideon, Martial Paragon YEP! The planeswalker deck Gideon.

Hey, cool deck.

I suggest Gideon, Martial Paragon he's budget from the Amonkhet Planeswalker deck. He goes very well with the Vehicle strategy with Dwarves and Depala; being able to crew Vehicles for the turn then untap all creatures who crewed and pump both creatures and Vehicles.

Conqueror's Galleon  Flip is a new Vehicle from Ixalan which is easy to flip here and Foothold gives you a lot of nice options for a land. Untethered Express is another good Vehicle.

Duergar Hedge-Mage is a good Dwarf. He's a like a pseudo Reclamation Sage for Dwarves.

Go down the Gideon, Martial Paragon since it is two expensive and ineffective. Go down By Force, or at least move it to the sideboard. Move Authority of the Consuls to the sideboard. Go down the Hungry Flames for another Insult / Injury. You need 1 drop creatures (the mana-curve is a little off, two many three drops). This deck could use 4 Bomat Courier. I think you could lose the Aerial Responder for more Combat Celebrant and Honored Crop-Captain in order to maximize damage. I really like the idea though. Sweet deck my dude.

My friend plays a Cat tribal deck.

He uses Oath of Ajani to put +1/+1 Counters on all his Creatures. That synergies well with Metallic Mimic.

Playing 4 of every Creature is rarely a good idea.

You need to switch things up by only playing 3 of some Cats:

3x Pride Sovereign
3x Regal Caracal
3x Sacred Cat

MAYBE 3x Prowling Serpopard. You'll have to test that one.

I don't like 22 lands for this deck. Even Aggro decks are running 24 Lands, and using utility Lands to help with a win in the late game.

For this deck I would suggest adding 2x or 3x Shefet Dunes. They can sacrifice themself to get their effect.

I would try going to at least 23 Lands. 24 if you feel that you can cut enough things.

Adding 3x or 4x Scattered Groves would also be a good idea. They help you not to get colour screwed, and offer Cycling in the late game.

You'll be surprised how useful it is to be able to get rid of a land that you drew, to look for something else.

Remove some basic lands for them.

I also think Gideon, Martial Paragon would be better in your Sideboard than Ajani Unyielding. Costs less and pumps all your Creatures.

Tag me in these Comments if you make some changes, and want me to take another look.

This is an actually interesting use for a PW Deck Planeswalker! Wow, Gideon, Martial Paragon, I didn't know you had it in you! +1 to untap all your Exerters is pretty dope, not gonna lie. It's basically pseudo-vigilance!

I actually have a RW Exert deck in Magic Duels, and I win pretty often. I'd recommend 4 copies of Always Watching because that card is so dope, and maybe cutting some of the Trials because they don't really do all that much. Trueheart Twins is basically a win condition if you're built up enough. Every creature you exert give every creature +1/+0. That might sound mediocre, but just look at this example.

You have 2x Ahn Crop Crasher and 2x Gust Walker out on the field. You play the Twins, and move to attack. You exert everything (this is ridiculous if you have your Gideon or Always Watching, btw, because you can do it every turn).

You've exerted 2 Crashers, so two of their creatures can't block. Your Gust Walkers also are now 3/3s with Flying. Then, Trueheart activates, and everything gets +4/+0. Now you're swinging in with a pair of 7/2s on the ground and a pair of 7/3s in the air. Out of nowhere.

Basically, it will just win the game in a turn or two.

I didn't think Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip would be my best option, its just a cool card that is cheap. Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is an awesome card. I will have to try to find one of those, but I'm perfectly fine with just going with my Gideon, Martial Paragon until I can get my hands on one, especially since it costs 1/4 the price. I was already thinking of dropping the Firemane Avenger and Viashino Firstblade for the Legion Loyalists, so it is even better that you suggested the same. I think I kept those cards over others before because they go with my Legion's Initiative, but I have a lot of dual color creatures and taking 2 away for the Legion Loyalist isn't a big deal, because it still gets the +1/+0 and exile all creature cards. Is the 2nd ability of Legion's Initiative so that I can prevent damage to my creatures for a turn if I don't have Iroas, God of Victory preventing all damage?

I tend to not want to spend more than $15 on any single card, so it will be a while before I purchase some Aether Vial. Thanks for suggesting that card and also knowing that it is out of my price range at the moment. I hate it when someone suggests cards that cost twice the amount of my entire deck because they clearly didn't see how the deck was constructed.

Thanks for all of the help! It has been greatly appreciated.

Oloro_Magic, be careful with offering your advice to me, I may never stop asking questions, haha. Would Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip be a good card for this deck? A 1 mana creature that transforms seems like a nice addition and I don't see any problem with me being able to attack with 3 creatures. And if it is a good card for the deck, how many would I add? I have also viewed a lot of similar decks that use Ajani Vengeant but I think that my planeswalker, Gideon, Martial Paragon is a better card and works better with my deck. What do you think? Thanks for your help!
