Gideon of the Trials Discussion

N1996 on My Mardu Walkers (Need Help)

Hey I play walkers as well but not mardu Im more abzan splash blue but if you dont mind them cycling Oath of Chandra and Oath of Liliana are use full as well as Gideon of the Trials along with the other gideon to stop you from losing as well as Authority of the Consuls. Here is a link to my deck Guardians of the Multivers I know it is not your colors but we share two colors so you could get some ideas for your deck.

Delta-117 on My Mardu Walkers (Need Help)

Add in Abrade, add in more Fatal Push's. Swap your gideons for Gideon of the Trials. Add more copies of Chandra, Torch of Defiance.

Add in 4x Concealed Courtyard, 4x Inspiring Vantage. Ixalan will have a new land cycle, I won't say anything further though, but you can find this out if you do some searching of your own.

Consider adding Fumigate, Yahenni's Expertise or similar effects. Add in a second Cast Out maybe too.

I would cut out your current creatures. The only creatures worth consideration in your colors after rotation are the gearhulks, then i'm sure Ixalan will have something.

Other than that though I suggest to just wait and see what is on the way for Ixalan.

Hmm. Seems like a good base for an Atraxa Superfriends.

But you'd need more removal (not only creature), ramp and draw.

Removal : Beast Within, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Cyclonic Rift, Scour from Existence.

Ramp : Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice are all-stars in ramp (as said before), since they go up as the game goes on with Atraxa. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach helps out with color-fixing, but since you're not running basics... Farseek, Sylvan Scrying and Nature's Lore are better.

Also, Exploration and Burgeoning are excellent early game ramp cards.

Planeswalkers : Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Gideon of the Trials.

Draw : Mind Unbound, Fathom Mage. Put a counter, draw. Simple yet efficient.

Protection : Ghostly Prison, Privileged Position, Sphere of Safety, War Tax.

If you're not on a budget, Doubling Season.

Now, if you want advice on what to remove for those cards.

Enchantments : 7 cards.

1x Citadel Siege1x Dictate of Karametra1x Oath of Ajani1x Oath of Gideon1x Oath of Liliana1x Sandwurm Convergence1x Spreading Plague

Sorceries : 4 cards. (Trying to accelerate the deck by removing some 7+ CMC cards)

1x Deploy the Gatewatch1x Hallowed Burial1x Praetor's Counsel1x Primal Surge

Planeswalkers : 1 card.

1x Kiora, Master of the Depths (too creature-centric)

Creatures : 1 card.

1x Isperia, Supreme Judge (comes too late in the game)

You can switch as you like. Hope this advice can help!

With all due respect, but what's the point of posting this decklist ?.It is the exact same list as every UW control i've ever seen, the only difference being that you replaced Elspeth, Sun's Champion with Gideon of the Trials (which is a worse card), please don't see this as rage, is just that you deck is the same as everyone elses, there is no point in putting this online since one can search "UW control" on google and se abou 900 lists exactly like yours.

Well, you can remove Fatal Push and use something like Dead Weight as that's the poor man's Fatal Push. Most of what you can remove with Push, Dead Weight can probably hit as well. You can remove Rhonas the Indomitable and Gideon of the Trials pretty easily and replace them with really anything you like that fits the scheme. I used to just run 4 copies of God-Pharaoh's Faithful in their place because you can drop your counters from Channeler Initiate or Exemplar of Strength. You can add Crocodile of the Crossing in as well.

The majority of the cost comes from Concealed Courtyard and Blooming Marsh which can be replaced with Foul Orchard or Forsaken Sanctuary if you want super budget, but they won't be anywhere near as good. Good lands are some of the first things I would recommend buying in a format, especially since these ones won't rotate until the end of 2018. Both of the lands are also used quite frequently in Modern, so they're a two for one.

You could also probably go down a few Solemnity if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend that at all. They're pretty cheap as is.

PIZZ_PAZZ on Gideon Aetherflux resevoir combo deck

Lol just realized how expensive this is. If I buy this I'll probably drop all nonlands except Gideon of the Trials and Aetherflux Reservoir

I have been working on the same thing. I believe Wizards told us the Planeswalkers to use for such a thing with the SDCC 2017 Planeswalker release. It's a Gatewatch / Nicol Bolas promo set. I'm not saying you need that set to do this, but those are the cards Wizards chose to put together.

Because of that set, those are the Walkers I will be using. I'm just trying to figure out strategies that doesn't make the Gatewatch broken. It is hard to balance flavor with competitiveness.

I actually like Rashmi, Eternities Crafter in place of Gideon of the Trials, with Nissa, Steward of Elements, this should provide a lot of card-draw and speed up play.

Cryptolith Rite in place of Tragic Lesson which will speed up instead of slow down the rate of growth in your mana-base.

Anointed Procession instead of Illusionist's Stratagem will dramatically increase the number of creatures in the field and boost Majestic Myriarch.

My choice would be Regal Caracal and Sacred Cat over Angel of Invention and Adorned Pouncer, with a few Anointed Procession on the field, you can rapidly summon a very large number of cat token creatures.
