Gideon's Intervention Discussion

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

I would highly recommend testing Alhammarret's Archive - I totally get what you are saying but it really synergises with everything that your deck is doing.

Possible replace Gideon's Intervention? I've never played the card myself (Or seen it played in EDH) and I don't know your meta but it seems very inconsequential in EDH.

I love the idea - +1. I would be tempted to replace Fumigate and Cast Out with 2 Gideon's Intervention (just because Fumigate could hurt you or be a dead card in the hand if you have creatures out, but no Shalai, Voice of Plenty). In the same vein, maybe 2 each of Lyra Dawnbringer and Shalai, Voice of Plenty. Shalai can also crew Heart of Kiran

I have often thought of combining Blood Moon with something like Gideon's Intervention, targeting Mountain and effectively negating your opponent's mana base. Can you think of a card that has a effect that is similar to Gideon's Intervention?

Agreed, Seal Away is currently standard in any control package. Lost it somehow. A game-plan that works with this deck is to go all-out kittens in round 1, then if required, drop Leonin Vanguard and 2 Adorned Pouncer to bring in some added white control. I must admit that I normally bring in Gideon's Intervention and Ixalan's Binding, but a more aggressive option would be Seal Away and Sheltering Light
