Gideon's Intervention Discussion

Mike1987 on Horses ftw

I like the combination of Sorcerous Spyglass and Gideon's Intervention. personally i'm aware of the lack of card draw in white, so i wanted to try and get more value out of my cards with the option to cycle or get card draw with another effect. hence Ritual of Rejuvenation, Renewed Faith, Bright Reprisal. I also want the deck to mainly focus on the Crested Sunmares, so i need plenty of life gain options for both my turn and my opponents. If by some chance i lose the ability to play the sunmares and can't get them back (Lost Legacy), i have Approach of the Second Sun for backup... but yeah. also life gain and the removal in the deck obviously helps keep me alive long enough.

Gideon's Interventioncan certainly ruin a lot of people's days. This deck looks pretty solid for 10 dollars. +1

Thanks for the comment Pringy978

I love Dusk/Dawn and use it as a 4 off in other brews. But then I want it for the Aftermath effect. The Aftermath side won't have any use in this build and would rather have Fumigate take care of all threats (including small things like pirates and other tokens) than just 3 and up and sparing few of my guys.

The thing about control is that they normally have a very little amount of win cons. Maybe Blue Gearhulk or Approach the Second Sun or maybe Nicol Bolas?11 Cards in the 4 drop slot takes care of those 1-3 possible threats. With Gideon's Intervention and Ixalan's Binding it takes care of said threat and they wont be able to cast any further copies. Cast Out is a hit all and would be stuck in hand till they have a threat later on board.A Flipped Legion's Landing is very irritating for control. Making a 1/1 each turn that cant really be countered puts them on a clock. Board wipes only slows it down a bit

Code goes here

I've been toying around on moto with a BW Nevermoreesk plan using things like Gideon's Intervention, Cast Out and Lost Legacy with something like Approach of the Second Sun as a finisher. Anyone have any sweet thoughts as far as possibly competitive setups?

Well tonight go so well. My only win tonight was because of a bye. Today i played against Living End Cascade, Eldrazi Tron, and W/R Burn(in thus order for rounds)

Round 1(1-2) first game was bad. He locked my lands down to 2 with land destruction and then cycled so much that by the time he cascaded for Living End he had a large enough boardstste to win. Game 2 i got a Nevermore on Living End and controlledbthe board till Luminarch Ascension was making angels. Game 3 waa tge same as the first.

Round 2(0-2) these games were so close! I almost had him game 1, he could never draw into the last piece of the urza lands. Game went so slow that he casted Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger before i could get Gideon's Intervention to show up on a draw. By the time i drew into one it was already on board. He then milled me out in both games.

Round 3(bye) technically counts as a win soo sadly my only win of the night.

Round 4(0-2) this matchup i definately needed Leylines. After tonights games i definately started ordering them. Game 1 was quick. He had my health low before i could respond. Game 2 i slowed him down with Nevermore but it still ended up the same.

I think Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better in these token deck than Sorin Lord of Innistrad

I think you could also afford to use a bit more disruption. Discard spells like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and Collective Brutality can help protect your combo pieces from your opponent's hate, keep them off curve, keep them off balance, and play around there cards effectively. Some removal like Fatal Push and Path to Exile are pretty excellent at dealing with just about everything.

Also, I know its expensive but I gotta mention it, Bitterblossom is the best card in token decks and just strait up wins games on its own sometimes.

As far as "real" sideboard cards go.

Stony Silence for artifact decks

Rest in Peace for graveyard hate

Timely Reinforcements for life gain

Countersquall for control

Gideon's Intervention protection from stuff like Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle

For the mana base, some cheapish options

Concealed Courtyard or other fast lands

Vault of the Archangel

Moorland Haunt

Sunken Hollow and other Battle Lands

Drowned Catacomb and other Buddy Lands

Flooded Strand and other fetches if you can afford them

Hope this helps!

Alright updated the list, I really appreciate all the tips! They've come in handy! I took Aether Hub and Harnessed Lightning out because i do sideboard Solemnity so kind of counter productive added in Lightning Strike and Gideon's Intervention for Carnage Tyrant and Approach of the Second Sun time to proxy!!

TehRealZ3r0 I was considering running a few opts in place of glimmer. Running Gideon's Intervention didn't even cross my mind may fit them in side board. Ixalan's Binding has been a huge life saver in games 2-3. I personally have fun and enjoy Glory main board, gonna proxy some more all day tomorrow. I will look into some more I'm working on my sideboard as I don't play much with a few cards in it. I had trouble agains U/W Approach. Essence Scatter is my small aggro deck aid.
