Gideon's Company Discussion

This is an interesting deck. Mean pile of creatures and artifacts. Endless Atlas might be useful as well as Rebuff the Wicked. Cut Gideon's Company and maybe the two token devotion creatures. There is no real token theme in the deck. Add any of the stellar cards in your maybe list.

I agree with the comments above. Add 2 more Charmed Strays, or take them all out. Probably take them out, as they're pretty low-power. Other clunky/low-power cards to take out are: both your enchantments, Gideon's Company, Soulmender, and Twinblade Paladin.

Instead, add some cards from the new set like Daxos, Blessed by the Sun, Heliod, Sun-Crowned (before he's banned), Alseid of Life's Bounty helps with removal too (as does Gods Willing for some more protection). A lot of these are much higher power than your current list, and will help you win games much more often.

Write a longer description. A big long description helps other people who want to give advice (like me) see your reasoning for certain card choices or even for the archetype. It also makes you think out your combos and your reasoning for each card. If you look at my decks, none of them have a description shorter than about a paragraph.

This is actually probably going to be one of the big archetypes. But I still have a few suggestions. Gideon's Company is a bit clunky, so probably cut that in favor of another payoff (probably going to have to wait for the full release of THB to find that). Dawn of Hope is pretty clunky too, since you have to spend at least 6 mana to get any value out of it.

I think Planar Cleansing and Shatter the Sky rather work against yourself, since combo decks like this one like to build up a big boardstate (and are unlikely to out-pace other decks if the board gets reset).

Castle Ardenvale is worth putting a few in, just because it's strictly better than a plains.

Skyler1776: Thanks for your comment! :)

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord was in the deck from the beginning. Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Gideon Blackblade are a little bit to expansive ($$) for my budget, but I considered them before I completed deck and in my opinion, Sorin better suits the assumptions (lifelink for my creatures (in my turn), -X resurrection from graveyard, +2 damage with lifelink == another counter for creatures. My main assumption is gaining life (from lifelink, Soulmender ) to trigger Epicure of Blood , which cooperates perfectly with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Revenge of Ravens -> Ajani, Strength of the Pride doesn't work well enough with this set. Btw sometimes I don't even have to attack, to win the game. Other creatures in my opinion are perfectly compatible with themselves.

Gideon's Company is very good card, but I decided to change it for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . It has flying, which is good way to deal damage, when opponent doesn't have any flying creatures / or to defend flying attackers.

Now I'm trying to change some lands to speed up an avalanche of 'counters'/'triggers'. ;)

Pretty sweet decklist you have here. Can't say I would change much except for the Squadron Hawk , which doesn't really fit with rest of the theme of the deck, and maybe Spectral Possession.

Have you considered Gideon's Company (aka larger Ajani's Pridemate ) or maybe Sublime Archangel as a a replacement for the hawks and as a second win condition?

You could also try reveilark or Vesperlark as another way to bring back the Martyr or Sisters.

Dawn of Hope Might also come in handy for some card draw. Hope this helps.
