Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Discussion

Piebye726 on Red White Aggro

Hoo boy... List time!

CreaturesYou have a lot of high impact creatures that, without a doubt can take the game on their own, but I see that you have no late game big creature removal. I would suggest taking out the high cmc cards like Angelic Skirmisher and Aurelia, the Warleader and replace them with Figure of Destiny or Dragonmaster Outcast. I would also suggest taking out Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, and replacing it with a better one: Gisela, the Broken Blade because the broken blade is much cheaper, has first strike, and lifelink. If you are going to run that, I would also suggest Bruna, the Fading Light because, you know, meld. The purpose of aggro decks, which you labeled this as, is to overwhelm opponents early before you run out of gas, so you need lower cmc creatures, haste preferred. Goblin Guide is a perfect example.

ManabaseAlthough aggro decks aren't as mana demanding as control decks, they still need more dual lands. I would suggest taking out Boros Garrison and replacing it with Sacred Foundry. Shock lands are great because of the potential mana advantage that you can get with this card. Manlands are also great, and I think that Looming Spires would be a perfect fit in this deck. A few mountains and plains are great, but fetchlands are better.

Wincons:Your deck does have many cards that take the game, but I think that it needs a sold wincon. Most decks have 2 parts to it, the wincon, and the supporting cards. If you are running blue, your wincon might be Thing in the Ice  Flip and you supporting cards may be bounce and counter sells. If you are going to run Gisela and Bruna, their melded versions can quite easily win you the game. I think that for a wincon, Transcendent Master would be a great add to your deck. Lightning Bolt is a great card and so is Path to Exile. Deflecting Palm can also be a great instant if you use it properly.

SuggestionsI think that overall, you should use cheaper cmc creatures, and maybe some planeswalkers like Ajani Vengeant and more enchantments. I see that you are lacking in sideboards, so for a start, I would suggest putting in Revoke Existence and Leyline of Sanctity.

ps. take out Kalemne, Disciple of Iroas. once you play with her, you'll feel her underwhelmingnessess

Sorry if I sound condescending but I just needed to get these points across. Good deck tho +1

Have you found any of the damage doublers to be worth running? Things like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Furnace of Rath, Dictate of the Twin Gods, etc. Seems like Avacyn getting to deal more damage on flip would be pretty sweet.

I feel like your land count may be a little high on this deck especially with your cmc 2 being the majority of the decks cards. I would drop down to 36 lands and add some more creatures or cards that make creatures like Mardu Ascendancy, Aurelia, the Warleader, and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight for starters. I know you said it was just cards that you had lying around so those cards don't have to be the exact cards you put in of course but I highly recommend using them eventually.

You also can try out Legion Loyalist, Hero of Bladehold, Aegis of the Gods, Loxodon Gatekeeper, and Tajic, Blade of the Legion.

Aurelia, the Warleader, despite not being a soldier, can allow your soldiers to pack more punch, and can allow Battalion cards to trigger twice, such as the aforementioned Tajic. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight can also double the pain.

Odric, Master Tactician (aka "Captain No-Blocks") is one of my favorite creatures for a token deck. Crusader of Odric is nice as well.

Speaking of Aurelia, you also can throw in a bunch of cards that give additional combat phases, such as Savage Beating, Aggravated Assault, World at War, Waves of Aggression, Relentless Assault, etc.

For some more tribal staples, you can put in Obelisk of Urd, Coat of Arms, Adaptive Automaton, Brass Herald, etc.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight straight up doubles, yo.

Relentless Assault and Seize the Day to turn SMACK into SMACKSMACK.

Insult / Injury double up and enter the NO FOG zone.

GuardGamer ok now im convinced on Fatespinner i must have read it wrong, maybe thinking it effected me as well. Now not saying i don't believe you on Memory Erosion I just like Fevered Visions I added in there more for me to draw cards as well. I play casual and will diffently give yours a try one day. PLayed a game last night and I didnt win this round but it did have a fun interaction with my only board maybe a mana rock or two than also Wound Reflection and one of my three other opponents having a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight out and if we did the math correct that was a 12 damage punishment for having 4 or more cards which I found completely fun.

I agree with what EmmaMuu said, focus on ramp and not mana rock. (Except Sol Ring)I love Gisela, Blade of Goldnight it's an auto-include in my decks with W and R, alongside Aurelia, the Warleader, that you already have. Arlinn Kord  Flip is sweet aswell. Since this is a creature heavy deck I also recommend Reclamation Sage.

Also if you have the means, why not the other preators?: Urabrask the Hidden and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger.

Hello Again xyr0s

Talking about Miracles, can I ask your opinion about Temporal Mastery ?Should I grab one or two, or is it just too risky to have a 7 Mana dead Miracle in your hand ??

I heard Noxious Revival works wonder as well. :) Do you think I should buy them before or after Think Twice and Serum Visions ??

As for my creatures:

But, do you have any suggestions ?? I'm aware that those creatures are slowing down my deck, so I'm open to all suggestions !! :)

Thanks again for your suggestions, I shall update my Acquirelist right away :)
