Gideon, Martial Paragon Discussion

I would add 4x Always Watching . Vigilance + exert = amazing! It's probably a bit more reliable than your Gideon, Martial Paragon, at least a good "in addition to," anyway.

I have a mono-white that might give you some ideas. Maybe not, but maybe worth a look. White weenie extraordinaire

Cool deck! +1 from me!

You could always use Eerie Interlude and Gideon, Martial Paragon to untap exerted cards. Combat Celebrant is great, but might just be a bit vulnerable to -1/-1 tokens. I went with a / version of this deck in Untapped Exert, but I like the red splash which allows you to bring in Arlinn Kord  Flip and her amazing ultimate effect.

Murphy77 first of all thanks for your comment and suggestions!

Well, this deck is meant to be a mid-range to aggro. So, as we already have so many untap spells and 3 Always Watching , I really think it's unnecessary to have more than 2 Ahn-Crop Champions as with mana cost it reduces the deck's tempo. Also, that's why we have 6 untap spells and 2 of Gideon, Martial Paragon and the 2 Prey Upons.

This combo of yours seems really good. But by the time I manage to get both Cryptolith Rite and Harvest Season I'd already have enough mana for me down there... And plus I've got nothing to do with it:P But nonetheless thank you!

Let me see if I understand this...

You could tap all your creatures with Cryptolith Rite to gain mana, play something like Harvest Season to summon lands, untap all creatures with Gideon, Martial Paragon, tap all you creatures to declare an attack and exert them all, untap all creatures by the effect of Ahn-Crop Champion and have them available as blockers in your opponent's turn...

The combinations all sound very situational to me - but I would certainly want 4 Ahn-Crop Champions in the mix, alongside some mana-ramp elements.

Here are my two cents. Eldrazi Monument -- I love this card in token decks. Honor of the Pure -- This also buffs your creatures (most of them anyway). Balefire Liege -- a no-brainer. Spear of Heliod -- This not only buffs up your creatures, but it also acts as good creature removal/deterrent. Path of Bravery -- I would replace Angel of Renewal with this. Call for Unity -- a good card for the endgame that will help keep all your tokens alive. Coat of Arms -- You have enough tokens to make this work. Elite Scaleguard -- This creature will abuse the massive number of +1/+1 counters that your deck is capable of, sometimes allowing you to swing for lethal on the turn you play him. Gideon, Martial Paragon + Gideon's Resolve -- this is a fun combo that would go well in your deck. the planeswalker will give you a pillow fort, and the enchantment buffs all your creatures. Gideon's final ability will also allow you to swing for lethal. Gleam of Authority -- This is something else to abuse your +1/+1 counters, but I am not necessarily recommending it. I will add more suggestions tomorrow.

I test played this against my Blackhat deck and it did really well the first game. The 2nd game was just bad luck (mana flood) and the 3rd game your deck won, but just barely.

I kinda agree with the others about getting rid of Gideon, Martial Paragon. It's just kinda felt clunky to me. Arlinn Kord  Flip on the other hand... yea, she messed me up pretty bad those 3 games. LoL

Consider using Prepare / Fight as it untaps your creature. You may need more fixing. Also, Gideon, Martial Paragon is a bad card. Take that out and put in a card that grants vigilance to a creature.

Weird suggestion: I'm using Gideon, Martial Paragon. His + ability is stupidly good in this deck.
