Burlane421 I do agree that Tocatli Honor Guard is an important card right now against this current meta. Since I could not acquire the Gideon of the Trials, I was perfectly happy with moving Responder to mainboard and am very content with Tocatli in the side. Granted, luck is an everpresent factor where it doesn't matter what I move to mainboard if I never actually get it lol

Thank you for your suggestions, I also thought about Gideon of the Trials, but he's quite beyond my money limit. Maybe i can grab him in a good trade. I update the decklist with another ramp and lots of carddraw like I think the Approach of the Second Sun theme need it.

Oh, sorry just realised that it was designed to be used on Gideon Jura or Gideon of the Trials

Just my personal take, but I'd consider mainboarding Cast Out over Ixalan's Binding and going up a Sweltering Suns. expanding on -Arcanity-, aggro is the number 1 played deck right now (Ramunap) and since most of your game is turn 5+, you may not have a chance to get going. Cast Out at least gives you the opportunity to cycle early to find answers, and Sweltering Suns is the cheapest board clear in your colors.

I'd also pull Glorious End. Without the Gideon of the Trials emblem to keep you from losing, it basically delays the inevitable. Could trade out to put in more immediate threats. Something like Glorybringer could fit nicely. Even Charging Monstrosaur would fit your Huatli theme, and give you another decent fast threat to help you catch up.

So far I have loved the Elspeth, Knight-Errant Gideon of the Trials combo. Not to mention, Mutavault is an great target for addition damage to close out once you have ripped their hand apart. I built the current version shown above as of this message and tested it at my local lgs and went 2-0 vs robots with no sideboarding. I'm tempted to drop 1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar and 1 Wrath of God for 2 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad tho I really like the idea to of a 4/4 lifelink flier late.

Nothing happens. Approach of the Second Sun only goes on to the "Otherwise..." part of its effect if the condition it checks ("If Approach of the Second Sun was cast from your hand and you've cast another spell named Approach of the Second Sun this game") comes up false. In your example it sees the condition is true so it goes to the "you win the game" part of the effect. The emblem from Gideon of the Trials will cause it to do nothing.

@EddCrawley: Approach of the Second Sun doesn't create any triggers. Everything happens as it resolves. Only the words "when", "whenever", or "at" indicate a triggered ability. The word "if" just means the effect is checking to see if a condition is true.

Hi!My opponent has a Gideon of the Trials ultimate, so I can't win.I cast a second Approach of the Second Sun.Can I put it into the 7th top of my library and gain 7 life? Or doesn't do anything?

casting Slaughter Pact with a Gideon of the Trials emblem out and then not having to pay for it does feel pretty awesome though.
