Gisela, Blade of Goldnight

Legendary Creature — Angel

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

Damage stopped using the stack in the big 6th Edition rules rework.

Your reasoning is correct however. Damage falls off a the end of each turn as a part of the Cleanup Step, which is the very last part of the turn. So long as enough damage is dealt in a single turn, it doesn't matter when it was dealt.

There is a slight problem with the situation. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight's last ability says to PREVENT half of the damage rounded up. This means that she would only take two damage per elemental token and still need one more point of damage to have lethal marked.

I would like some help explaining this to my friend as to how I destroyed their Gisela. Is this called damage on the stack? I hope I did not misplay.

It is my turn and my opponent only has Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

During my main phase :I have Omnath, Locus of Rage & Warstorm Surge on the battlefield.

1) I play Evolving Wilds - Triggers a 5/5 elemental token & Warstorm Surge

Deals 3 damage to Gisela

2) Tap Evolving Wilds for a land - Triggers a 2nd 5/5 elemental token & Warstorm Surge again

Deals 3 damage again to Gisela and she is destroyed.

Gisela was destroyed because it was still my turn and the damage added up. Damage that I deal but is not lethal is removed in my end step. Is this right?

Thank you for helping!

I don't understand the effect of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Is it anytime damage is done its double? (Attacks , spells , skill?)

And is it the same when damage is dealt to me by attack spell and others ?

Talk about throwing stones. XD in all seriousness, this is a fantastic deck. However, it doesn't seem quite as fast. Have you considered all the damage doublers like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Dictate of the Twin Gods? Even Gratuitous Violence and Inquisitor's Flail feel like they should be included in here since it's mainly a Boros beat-'em-up theme deck. XD

Either way, it's gotta be fantastic to play with. Hope you have fun.

Hey there! Noticed your post on Argy's page. clayperce has a TON of excellent resources for new EDH players. I totally agree with him that the forums are a good place to start.

Additionally, he's right in saying that your deck should reflect your budget, the competitiveness of your meta, and the colors you like to play with.

That said, I have a couple more suggestions for you as far as "aggro/control" commanders go. Aggro in Commander is best paired with disruption, since Commander is a 40-life format and aggro strategies are much tougher to pull off. That said, there's an excellent Saskia the Unyielding precon for $40-ish that you can probably find. As far as brewing your own deck, Surrak Dragonclaw, Samut, Voice of Dissent, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and Archangel Avacyn  Flip all fit the role you need from an aggro-control commander: enough power to push through damage, and also access to colors/abilities of disruption and control. Does that sound like what you're going for? hmu and let me know, and I'd be glad to help out best I can.
