Gideon's Defeat Discussion

meumeunome on Attacking/Blocking creature interaction

A creature that attacked is an attacking creature until End of Combat Step? So can I target an attacking creature with Gideon's Defeat after the Damage Step is done?

DRACULA150704 on Gideon's defeat?

I was playing against someone with a Gideon's Defeat card and i couldn't understand how an attacking or blocking white creature could be a planeswalker.

I might add Gideon's Defeat to the SB since mardu vehicles is a thing that is still strong after rotation. During testing, he has been a particular annoyance.

Down 2 on Skymarch Bloodletter up 2 on removal like 2 more Walk the Planks or somthing. Also Gideon's Defeat a and/or Liliana's Defeat for sideboard

That's a great idea. I've been thinking on more potential sideboard stuff:

maybe 1-2 Gideon's Defeat, since Gids AoZ is likely still pretty powerful...but no more than 2.

Fatal Push gets Heart of Kiran and other Vehicles, not to mention the RDW aggro out there.

Declaration in Stone against other Zombies?

Against RDW, I would add 3-4 cards in SB with life-gain (Wayward is a good example).

And finally, try W enchantment/artifact removal such as Fragmentize which is good in many many situations.

Best of luck! Hope this helps, but mention me here if I can do more! Cheers!

I recommend the following changes:

Cut 2 Colossapede, 2 Bitterbow Sharpshooters, 2 Wall of Forgotten Pharaohs, 4 Aven of Enduring Hope, 2 Winged Shepherd, 1 Sandwurm Convergence, 1 Greater Sandwurm, 1 Mirage Mirror, 2 Life goes on.

Add 3 Rhonas's Stalwart, 1 Resilient Khenra, 1 Gideon's Defeat, 1 Dauntless Aven, 1 Tah-Crop Elite, 1 Vizier of the True, 1 Rhet-Crop Spearmaster, 1 Trial of Solidarity, 1 Sunscourge Champion, 2 Bitterblade Warrior, 1 Unwavering Initiate, 1 Initiate's Companion , 1 Naga Vitalist, 1 Act of Heroism.

The biggest problem of your current version is the mana curve, you have way too many mana intensive cards and very little ramp, so i would cut the 5+ CMC cards for the aggressive 2 and 3 drops from your card pool and play a more aggro version of the deck.

Well are you aware of the defeat cycle of uncommons?

Jace's Defeat, Gideon's Defeat, Liliana's Defeat, and so on?

Also the HOU artbook in summary already tells us too.

Gideon's Defeat, Jace's Defeat, Liliana's Defeat, Chandra's Defeat, Nissa's Defeat, though those are in HOU, so I don't know if you want them included just yet.

I'd recommend going to Gatherer and setting the search bar to look for each color and basic land type, one a a time, in card texts. It's pretty easy, though a bit time consuming, but it's going to be much more effective than asking people for cards off the top of their head.
