Gideon's Intervention Discussion

I agree that you should keep your mana costs low and you already run a lot of cards at cmc 3, but your only means of REMOVING on board threats are three board wipes and the ability of Profane Procession  Flip. I'm just saying if they have answers to enchantments, you might be kinda screwed. Also, Gideon of the Trials seems like a decent idea if you add Gideon's Intervention lol.

My version shifted through a variety of color combinations including sultai, but I think I have settled on dimir and primarily using Surgical Extraction. Turn 1 inquisition into surgical seems like fun.

Sorcerous Spyglass is another Pithing Needle type card.

The goal of these types of cards is that at least for effects like Nevermore, Null Chamber, Gideon's Intervention, Pithing Needle, Darksteel Mutation, Imprisoned in the Moon, Cursed Totem, Sorcerous Spyglass, Song of the Dryads, etc. is that they are 'commander removal', a way of getting around the command-zoning techniques that are abused by commanders that get removed often, yet can just be cast for more.

Mairsil can also use cards like Empress Galina or other steal effects as you can't command zone those either. Empress will also have an activated ability Mairsil can get, allowing you to make a sort of lock on all commanders.

Suppression Field, Prison Term, and other type effects, possible commander hate in the form of Nevermore, Darksteel Mutation, Gideon's Intervention, Null Chamber, etc could work in Marchesa. Even Cursed Totem, but for Mairsil, you will have to look elsewhere.

Mairsil is harder, I guess Imprisoned in the Moon?

Lands are put into play, not cast, so unfortunately Gideon's Intervention wouldn't work in that manner.

Also, why is Manamorphose a dead card? You don't need green to cast it.

For something similar to making your enemies attack each other, cards like Brutal Hordechief (you can activate his ability at any time), Bitter Feud (choose two of your opponents), Mystic Barrier (This card looks weird but can be GREAT), Choice of Damnations (just very fun late game), Porphyry Nodes (punishes aggro), and Sorcerous Spyglass (planeswalkers, commanders, etc.) are all very good.

Also in addition to cards like Gideon's Intervention there is Voidstone Gargoyle - it's good with eminence and some other effects, but Gideon's Intervention is more versatile because of the no-damage clause.

Why no Gideon's Intervention or Nevermore for other people's commanders? Also what about Curse of the Nightly Hunt and a pillowfort?

Gideon's Intervention, Stonecloaker, Orim's Chant + Isochron Scepter, Glowrider, Spelltithe Enforcer, Windborn Muse, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Blind Obedience, Grand Abolisher. This is by looking at my binder, if they are not cheesy enough for you I apologise
