Choose a creature or planeswalker you control. All damage that would be dealt this turn to you and permanents you control is dealt to the chosen permanent instead (if it's still on the battlefield).

Gideon's Sacrifice Discussion

Borrowed Credit Card
When Borrowed Credit Card leaves the battlefield, it deals twice X damage to its controller, where X is the number of charge counters on it.
,: Draw a card, then put a charge counter on Borrowed Credit Card. Then, if it has ten or more charge counters on it, sacrifice it.
I know it's more of an un-card, but I love the flavor and the possibility. I mean, look at all of its possible interactions: a) Proliferate effects to race it up to 10 counters if an opponent controls it, or heck even if you control it, so that: b) once it has ten charge counters on it, give it to an opponent via Harmless Offering or Role Reversal effects. Or, c) include effects that remove counters or prevent them, like Solemnity; d) prevent or redirect outright the damage it would do to you on the tenth counter: Gideon's Sacrifice + Boros Reckoner combo... etc...
Let's have a wildcard since we've been silent for a while. (or, a unicorn!)

All Gideon's Sacrifice does is create a replacement effect that redirects the damage to the chosen permanent you control. It does not change anything else including what is doing the damage or if creatures are blocking.
One of the great things about MTG is cards do only what they say they do. Since there is no mention about switching blockers or blocking creatures do not deal damage to the creatures they are blocking, the card doesn't do it.
Additionally, just because attacking creatures do not deal their damage to the creatures blocking them doesn't mean they are no longer blocked by those creatures.

Great idea, flash backs to Reflect Bounder and Magic Cylinder in Yugioh. XD
- 2x Sheltering Light for 2x Repercussion (must keep Gideon's Sacrifice for this)
- 1x Sheltering Light for 1x Samut's Sprint (Boost)
- 2x Stuffy Doll for 2x Chandra's Spitfire (Stuffy to pricy mana wise, Chandra is a good backup plan)
- 3x Blasphemous Act for 3x Searing Blaze (Better mana manageable)
- 1x Star of Extinction for 1x Samut's Sprint (Boost)
- 1x Gideon's Sacrifice for 1x Titan's Strength (Boost)
- 1x Justice Strike for 1x Titan's Strength (Boost)
- 1x Boros Signet for 1x Titan's Strength (Boost)
- 1x Boros Signet for 1x Samut's Sprint (Boost)
- 1x Boros Signet for 2x Boros Charm (Good utility in Charm)

This is great for a first EDH. You might like these: Launch the Fleet (seems fun with Zada and Aurelia), Seize the Day , Ephemeral Shields , Twinflame , Heat Shimmer , Ghired's Belligerence , Volcanic Wind , Impact Resonance , Magnetic Theft (cheap way to re-equip Sunforger), Gideon's Sacrifice (combos with Arcbond + a spell that gives indestructible for infinite damage), Martyrdom , Kor Chant

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.
