Gideon's Reproach Discussion

Cool brew!

Gideon's Reproach is an upgrade over Impeccable Timing. I would also look at Sunlance, Path to Exile and Condemn for other options that provide a little more efficiency and flexibility.

In a deck with only ten creatures, Aether Vial seems suboptimal, especially with 4cmc and 3cmc creatures. Maybe sub for more cantrips like Opt, Thought Scour, Peek, or for additional copies of Vapor Snag or counters.

Cheers!

While true, the alternatives to Path to Exile are much worse in modern. For example; none of the other cards listed kill Gurmag Angler and will almost never kill a Death's Shadow reliably.

In addition, a lot of the most popular decks in the format are only playing 1-3 basic lands. If you Path them mid or late-game, they often fail to find because their basics are already in their hand, on their field, or in their graveyard.

Path also has the benefit of getting rid of annoying things like Wurmcoil Engine, and not having to deal with the two 3/3s it would normally create, in the Tron deck; this is another target Sunlance and Gideon's Reproach does not hit.

That being said, if you're still opposed to Path I'd go with Condemn. You could also consider less-played alternatives like Journey to Nowhere, Oblivion Ring or Cast Out, although I wouldn't recommend it.

Thanks for the suggestions Gim, TrueTribal, & Grubbernaut! Since all three of you said that I need to get rid of Impeccable Timing, then I guess I will need to replace it immediately. Now I need to figure out if I want to replace it with Gideon's Reproach, Condemn, or Sunlance. I'm leaning towards Gideon's Reproach because it isn't limited by colors and doesn't give lifegain. I don't like Path to Exile because it gives land to my opponent.

Cool list, you should definitely swap out Impeccable Timing for Gideon's Reproach or maybe Sunlance. I think Mirran Crusader might be better than Viashino Firstblade too.

Okay. Well if you want to go modern, may I suggest a splash of midrange?

1) in response to the mana curve question, other than not having enough 1-drops, the only thing I'm questioning is Angel of Glory's Rise. How much removal is your meta?

2) how about some removal? Gideon's Reproach and Immolating Glare are both nice to have. If you have an opponent playing Alesha, Who Smiles at Death or something, then Searing Light may be good. Make a Stand can be sooo funny on the defensive. Looking your friend who thinks he just won in the eye and saying 'my creatures are indestructible this turn' is a priceless moment.

I might add Gideon's Reproach to the SB since mardu vehicles is a thing and in testing, he is a particular annoyance.

I built a deck with the same theme you should give it a look RW Exert. I would up the lands to at least 21. I found myself stuck with 2 lands for a long time when I tested below 21. Maybe ditch the artifacts for Always Watching its a great card and lets you exert without a penalty. I would also swap out Gideon's Reproach for Abrade can still kill creatures and also destroy annoying artifacts if you need to. Running Glorybringer is something to look at it is one of the best finishers in standard right now.
