Gideon's Intervention Discussion

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

Deck seems nice, first time I see Gideon's Intervention somewhere tho.

I would recommand to swap Hour of Glory for Vraska's Contempt ! Even if it's 2BB ( more colored ), I think it's worth to have an instant way to deal with a PW.

Some Crook of Condemnation or Scavenger Grounds would be key. I tried to run Fleet Swallower, but I found it far too slow; same goes for Patient Rebuilding, although it's nice to have when someone names Psychic Corrosion with Lost Legacy, Gideon's Intervention etc. I also like Induced Amnesia and The Immortal Sun for a nice bit of synergy, though the latter is a bit spendy; maybe as a one-of in the sideboard? I dunno..

First things first, with an average CMC of more than 3, you need at least 26 lands. Also, having at least some that only cost one is always beneficial (in a midrage deck like this, consider Fatal Push). Gideon's Intervention and Lost Legacy should always be sideboard cards, since the former is just a bad binding and the latter can be a 1-for-0. To add more threats, I would consider some knight tribal cards: Valiant Knight, Aryel, Knight of Windgrace, Dauntless Bodyguard. Also, both Shefet Dunes and Ifnir Deadlands are great lands to add. With some modifications, I believe this deck can actually be quite competitive.
