Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Legendary Creature — Angel

Flying, first strike

If a source would deal damage to an opponent or a permanent an opponent controls, that source deals double that damage to that player or permanent instead.

If a source would deal damage to you or a permanent you control, prevent half that damage, rounded up.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Discussion

Please remember to link your cards, like so:

[[Black Vise]]

At the beginning of the chosen player's upkeep, both copies of Black Vise will trigger. Assuming both abilities resolve, both will take effect.

However, I would be very reluctant to say the opponent receives double damage. While, in effect, this will often be the case, there are a number of hypothetical conditions where the damage would be different than double.

After an ability resolves, there is a round of priority. So, hypothetically, the first Black Vise ability could resolve (let's say it deals 3 damage), and, while the second is on the stack, the player might cast Opt . This would go on the stack after the still-unresolved Black Vise and thus resolve first, drawing the chosen player a card. In such a situation, the first Black Vise to resolve dealt the 3 damage mentioned before, and the second would deal 4 damage, resulting in more than double damage.

Likewise, the opponent might discard a card, changing the amount the second Black Vise would deal.

I know that's a bit nitpicky, and you are extremely unlikely to see such a situation occur, but I wanted to be clear, particularly since "double damage" has its own meaning in Magic as a term of art (see Gisela, Blade of Goldnight ).

Nice deck sir PyreStarter! Love that description, a bit of lore, and some insights. +1

In case damage comes through, perhaps Darien, King of Kjeldor and Dissipation Field might come in handy. I also enjoy Cloud Cover to protect important permanents ( like Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight ) from spot removal.

xaarvaxus I actually swapped Boros Signet for Vanquisher's Banner . I personally don't like using the signets. I figured the buff and card draw would be better than the single mana gain.

The_Fallen_Duke I like the recommendation, I'll look into adding Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

HMM, i did recently acquire that card... I like it, I think I could maybe swap Deafening Clarion for Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . I bought her for my Boros Angels deck, but Ill do the swap, and if it works out ill get another copy.

I think that you'd benefit if also Gisela, Blade of Goldnight would join your angelic ranks, as Boros counts a lot on direct damage.

i do like this deck a lot. but i would swap Atarka, World Render for Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and due to this a white splash instead of the green one.
