Hey bud, love this deck. I made one based almost entirely on it, just subbing in a few cards I had for ones I didn't. One that worked well for me in a game yesterday was Gideon's Sacrifice . Was playing against a Gishath and it was awesome to redirect all his damage to a token each turn.

I'm not running more Gods Willing type effects as prefer the flicker/exile in my build. The advantage is 1/2 my ramp spells are creatures which have a ETB effect that ramps, works better with exile flicker for protection, with the downside that the herioc creatures have to reset counters if they targeted for removal. I'm on the fence with this one.

I like Blinding Flare ... Seems pretty good for derailing any fatty blockers.

I mulled over Gideon's Sacrifice for a while, would be nice to avoid the late game Deflecting Palm my buddy always seems to have in hand.

I don't do infinite combos so Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Midnight Guard aren't going in. Pretty dirty combo though.

im surprised your not running more Gods Willing type things. also Renegade Tactics can be good draw if you want more draw cards (but idk if you need them) I would definitely run Blinding Flare it can win games really easily. any strive cards really would be good b/c you can target one of your creatures and then the rest of the targets can be whatever you want. I would recomend toning down your decks power so your group doesn't kill you immediately. idk what kind of group you play in but at least for me I found a lot of success by playin almost no creatures during the early game and just playing defensively. just protecting your own yourself and make sure to have something to hurt any opponent if they attack you so they will have no reason to attack you. then I just one shot them all when I am ready with like 10 lands. Gideon's Sacrifice pretty much wins you the game by itself btw I would recommend it. if you are just going for a raw power deck you might add Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Midnight Guard . anyways I like the deck Feather is the most op commander ever in my opinion. let me know what you think about my input.

imoutogetyou thank you for your advice, while I understand why you suggested Selfless Spirit I think Gideon has more of a connection to Bant over Innistrad seeing as it was the first place he planeswalked too when his spark ignited and also where he changed his name from Kytheon Iora to Gideon Jura, that is the big reason why I went for a card like Knight-Captain, but the fact that when he ETB's he creates two blockers/attackers is also a nice upside. So while I thank you for your help I feel, flavour wise at least, that Knight-Captain of Eos is better suited to this deck over Selfless Spirit

As for Ravenrose I'm very sorry I can't believe I never replied to your advice! Thank you for approving the flavour aspects of this deck as it was a major focus of this decks creation for me! I just want to let you know that Gideon's Sacrifice was immediately added to the deck when I pulled one at the Pre Release and I'm currently trying to find a slot for Grasp of the Hieromancer as it fits in well with cards like Gideon's Avenger , as for God-Eternal Oketra I think for now at least I'll be leaving her out of the deck, purely for flavour reasons, now she's been killed and reanimated she isn't the god that Gideon trusted dearly on Amonkhet anymore, she goes against all her beliefs from when she was alive and that contradicts the theme of this deck, not to mention in her artwork she's aiming an arrow at Gideon and his Trusted Pegasus , although once again I think you for your help with one of my decks.

Hey, Samut's Sprint is a really good pump spell with Feather. Instant, haste, +2 pump, scry 1 for one mana. Consider 4x Sprint? Dreadhorde Arcanist is another way to reuse instants and sorceries if you don't have Feather on the battlefield. If you do have Feather then any instant or sorcery cast from your graveyard with Arcanist's attack ability that targets a creature triggers Feather's exile ability first. The spell never goes to the graveyard to be exiled. That's a pretty powerful interaction.

Tenth District Legionnaire and Feather with pump spells seems busted especially with scry. Consider 4x Legionnaire? I like the additional of Assure as a protection spell/pump spell. Sheltering Light is also good since only one mana and scry 1. Rile is a sorcery to playtest because with Feather it's one mana draw a card on each of your turns that also can give Legionnaire or Gideon trample. Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice is good with Feather and Legionnaire since they're creatures meaning Aurelia can give one of them +2 pump, trample and vigilance until EoT. Giving trample to Legionnaire makes it a real threat.

Gideon's Sacrifice and Solar Blaze are good cards, but I don't think you need 4x of them main deck. With Strike's draw and scry from many different sources consider more of a toolbox of spells? Cards like Sacrifice and Blaze seem excellent in the toolbox. Other cards that could be in the toolbox are Rile, Sheltering Light, Reckless Rage , Deafening Clarion , Justiciar's Portal, Conclave Tribunal. I think even though Tribunal doesn't have interaction with Feather it's going to be an important main deck removal spell because it hits Planeswalkers. The same can be said for Lava Coil (exile) and Lightning Strike (any target).

Integrity / Intervention is very lackluster. Boros Guildgate is not good because it ETB tapped, not worth playing. Consider cutting it for more basic lands, 3x Plains and 1x Mountain? More basic lands helps Retreat which is a much better land.

Nereid on Does Gideon's Sacrifice combine all ...

If my opponent attacks with 5 creatures and I use Gideon's Sacrifice on my Silverclad Ferocidons , does my opponent have to sacrifice 1 or 5 permanents?

This deck is a massive win for Vorthos! Grasp of the Hieromancer is perfect flavour. Return to the Ranks may also assist. Gideon's Sacrifice is also a good one. You may also want to add the new Oketra. Oust is iffy. Renounce the Guilds is a pretty good board wipe in this deck. This is all I have for you I am afraid.
