Gideon's Company Discussion

Murphy77 on Ajani (not Shrek) is life in Arena

3 days ago

While there are a range Ajani's Pridemate decks out there, a / version, such as Life-link Pride M is probably most rotation ready. Cards that are likely to become key to an Ajani deck will include Soulmender , Impassioned Orator and Vampire of the Dire Moon . While you will lose Resplendent Angel you gain multiple other creatures that grow in power each turn ( Twinblade Paladin , Gideon's Company and Bloodthirsty Aerialist ). By splashing Black you also gain Mortify , Murder and other creature-kill spells.

If you are enjoying this deck at present, I would not worry too much about rotation. I am sure that we will be able to keep similar decks competitive and fun to play.

5dollarMTG Im honestly a bit afraid of anything with a high CMC (and i know that 4 is not even that high), so Gideon's Company might be the card i need to overcome that fear. Might Replace him for 2 Murder Investigation since i havent seen much of its use in play, don't think i'll take out any other creature for it because the synergy i've been getting is insane.

You might try subbing out some of your two-drops for Gideon's Company - I've had good results with that in my lifegain deck.

I worry that too many of your cards focus on the late-game and may just slow you down early in the game. My version of this deck would lose Bolas's Citadel , Doom Whisperer , Raise the Alarm and Dawn of Hope for Mortify / Cast Down and Twinblade Paladin . Gideon's Company would also fit well into this deck, even without a Gideon planeswalker.

Murphy77 on Life-link Pride M

I suppose that the ideal creature support for Ajani's Pridemate , Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin (you could add in Gideon's Company here) would be 1-drops with both deathtouch and lifelink, but the only card that I can find in the current standard meta that meets this criterion is Vampire of the Dire Moon , which maybe needs to find a place in this deck.

A very similar deck that I had, evolved into Ajani M simply because green proliferate just boosts Ajani's Pridemate and company sooooo well.

I also built a mono-white life-gain deck based on Gideon's Company which looks very promising, but I haven't got round to testing it - see M Gideon.

Thanks Murphy77! I have added in a couple of Fountain of Renewal and Kwende, Pride of Femeref . Thinking about putting in Gideon's Company as well. Good luck with your deck!

Murphy77 on Feather WAR Standard Deck

The thing about a Feather deck is that you want to use his effect as much as possible. Play any instant, targeting one of your own creatures, and you get it back at the end of turn to play again next turn. Sheltering Light and Adamant Will can then protect a creature every turn and cards like Dauntless Bodyguard become redundant.

Spellgorger Weird and Tenth District Legionnaire then just multiply benefits by also collecting +1/+1 counters.

Any creature with double-strike equipped with Run Amok and Sheltering Light could end up doing a lot of damage. You then have the option of aiming for a high cmc creature like Goring Ceratops , or something like Swiftblade Vindicator and more instants like Sure Strike . With Feather in the mix, I would lean toward cheap instant spells.

The idea of bringing in Battlefield Promotion is interesting. More so if you had Ajani's Pridemate or Gideon's Company on the field. The problem is that you need to fit a large number of cheap instant spells into the deck and trying to fit in too many strategies could mean that you fail with them all. Adanto Vanguard , as a stand-alone creature just seems far too risky - you have a limited number of creature spots.

How much control you build into the deck will always be a debating point. If you can quickly build a powerful indestructible attacking force, maybe you can run over a number of decks with very little control. The combination of Teyo, the Shieldmage and Shalai, Voice of Plenty could give you blanket protection, but is likely to slow the deck down considerably. Ditto for Ixalan's Binding , Prison Realm , Conclave Tribunal etc. I would tend to have some of these cards in the side-board and aim for a high-tempo, win quickly approach with an equal number of impact creatures and boosting instant spells.

Although I haven't play-tested the concept, I rather like War of the Feather M
