Gideon, Martial Paragon Discussion

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!

Not standard anymore :( Ally , Avacyn Jace and thalia are out ... As well as the blessed alliances, port town...
As far as I'm concerned It's not possible anymore in standard.
You can try and build around Gideon, Martial Paragon and instead of control be more creature oriented so that the Gideon Control just help the deck and is not the main combo of it.
today I would do a white/blue flying creatures aggro deck + 6 to 8 gids.

I really like the deck and have a similar one, Gideon of Destiny, although I don't have any expensive lands yet. Why are you using Ajani Vengeant? I think Gideon, Martial Paragon would fit better in the deck. It's also the Planeswalker that I use in my deck. I guess its a decision between a defensive or offensive Planeswalker. Gideon, Martial Paragon comes out a turn later, but can use his major ability 1 turns earlier. Any suggestions you have for my deck would be greatly appreciated.

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.

I can bounce Gideon with Angel, but I cannot have more than one in play unless I play Gideon, Martial Paragon also, which won't be happening.
