Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Discussion

Boros. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. All goes well, you win on turn 7. Earlier if you drop a Sol Ring.

The obvious theme is Equipments.

The Sword Cycle, Sword of Vengeance, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, Forebear's Blade, and Sword of the Animist are great swords. Stoneforge Mystic has swords in it's art (even though she isn't holding them).

Aurelia, the Warleader, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer, Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice, and Tajic, Legion's Edge are all decent equipment commanders that are holding swords. Tajic (both versions) have the most obvious swords in their art, so I would head that direction.

hmm description is very confusing, but it's a kaalia deck so I got lead to here.

I'm going to guess the deck is kinda budget focused and an angel tribal and will try to suggest cards along those lines (though really the best thing to do for this deck would be to upgrade the land base).

Blinding Angel can allow you to lock out a creature based opponent from getting combat steps.

Angel of Despair is removal on a winged stick, so is Angel of Serenity who also can work as a Gravedigger.

Boros Charm has quite a few functions, you can save your creatures from removal, turn your Armageddon into a one sided mass land destruction, or could give say a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight (also suggest, big dmg while also being good protection) double strike resulting in a 20 dmg swing (or more).

Cover of Darkness is an avoidance giving enchantment I've considered in the past with my Heavenly Rakdos back when I didn't have as many ways to give kaalia avoidance. In this heavier one tribe version you may see a lot more mileage out of it.

it seems you have a heavy indestructible focus on your angelic army, General's Regalia can help them protect you.

@thewyzman It's good to have plan for when big creatures end up in your hand. Some people like to go the Elvish Piper route, but I've found the more elegant solution to be ramping. Piper can be explosive (turn 3 Ulamog anyone?) but is an absolute lightning rod for removal. Without haste, you're often not going to see much of a payoff. For the same mana you could cast Skyshroud Claim, which puts us at a minimum of 6 mana - more than enough to hard cast a majority of our creatures. You can think of it as a trade-off between speed and reliability; I've opted for reliability. This isn't the kind of deck you're pulling out at a cEDH tournament, so my advice is to maximize your fun for slower, grindier games.

My favorite T&N win-con is probably Purphoros, God of the Forge + Avenger of Zendikar. Xenagos, God of Revels + Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is pretty cool too. Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Archetype of Endurance has been known to tilt people out. I know none of these are instant-win combos, but they should put you in a position to close out the game.

@landofMordor: Removed Lose the Game effects, Sundial of the Infinite, & Platinum Angel all for the sake of such cards.

Other things removed:,Browbeat, Risk Factor, not the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares Combo as it locks down nearly all staples of cEDH for being "CMC3 Danger Zone". Same for Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel as my stuff that wrecks fields has immunity towards such cards' Color Identity. Same applies for Odric, Lunarch Marshal even though Sky Terror & Swiftblade Vindicator are removed. Possibly adding them back... Still trying on Damage Doubling as Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is, basically this.

Working on Sunforger Package, though I do have a purpose for Isochron Scepter yet. Fork, for Instant/Sorcery Doubling.

This is what I got so far; also added Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Flameshadow Conjuring, & Splinter Twin.

Question: Are the following cards good?

Ring of Three Wishes (Stuff like Ancestral Statue & Felidar Guardian can pull off a Genie Exploit.)

Planar Bridge (Hefty cost to search for Permanents, but can put them in play right away. Plus, I already have infinite mana combos to boot.)

Mangara's Tome (Not sure if drawing a card at the start of a turn is a replacement effect, but if not, this can give you all 5 cards easy. I don't think this gets sacced after that, so flickering this again would mean potentially, I can play my deck.)

Citanul Flute (Why I have a lot of fat in the first place. I can net both parts of the Brisela, Voice of Nightmares meld, & play them both on the same turn. (Gisela, the Broken Blade is CMC4, & Bruna, the Fading Light is CMC7...) Then hell will be given.)

Your thoughts on these? I'll continue cutting from here. Just got to 100% Competitive though; even though it seems like a hopeless lie...

biscuitbatman on Snow-Covered Kaalia

Personally, I find Brisela, Voice of Nightmares to be pretty slow in Kaalia, however the OG Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is pretty standard in decks of this type. I like the Snow-covered lands bit and Rimescale Dragon. That’s a take I’ve never seen before, I might try that myself.

What about Gisela, Blade of Goldnight? doubles damage you do and halfs what you take.

DemonDragonJ on Will Ajani and Gisela Together ...

If a player controls both Ajani Steadfast and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and activates Ajani's third ability, will the emblem and Gisela together prevent all damage that is dealt to their controller?
