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

Cazhewl on Aurelia to the Face

I did have Gisela, Blade of Goldnight at one point, but removed her awhile back for some reason. And you're absolutely right about Teferi's Protection -- I have one in another deck but haven't gotten around to buying one because of the price and hate proxying. I honestly didn't even know Mana Tithe was a card lmao.

Very helpful! Sorry it took so long for me to respond. I looked at your decks and really like your playstyle. I plan on making some more thematic decks, the first being heavily occult-focused. Thanks!

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight should probably go in this right?

I expected to see Gisela, Blade of Goldnight in this deck. You might want to invest in a Teferi's Protection - I know plenty of people who will attempt to boardwipe. If you really wan to go towards the more competitive side of EDH then I suggest putting Mana Tithe in this deck. Thalia, Heretic Cathar and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben are both good additions to the deck.

I hope my suggestions have helped! If you have some time, have a look at some of my decks. I am a theme builder but you never know if you find something you can use.

Nice deck! I have a Feather deck too - you might want to invest in an Anya, Merciless Angel and a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Parhelion II is also a fun addition to the deck. Anax and Cymede may also be handy in this deck. Angelic Arbiter will make your opponents' lives very difficult.

Hope these suggestions have come in handy!

multimedia on B/W ....angles??

An angle to consider is Mardu Angels :)

Kaalia of the Vast is a Commander to consider for Angels to cheat them onto the battlefield. Red is for Kaalia, haste for Kaalia and some red Angels such as Aurelia, the Warleader , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Planeswalkers and black reanimation can be a back-up plans if Kaalia fails. If you also like Demons then you can combine Angels and Demons if using Kaalia as Commander.

multimedia I need to update the deck since I do have a few of the cards you are suggesting and I need to remove and swap some stuff out.

I would like to keep Sorin, Grim Nemesis in the deck since it has just won me a game before.

Archetype of Courage gives my creatures first strike which is more to combo with Queen Marchesa for deathtouch.

I keep Protector of the Crown in in case I need to get the monarchy back and because it combos really well with Hammer of Nazahn

I like Torment of Hailfire but I could see removing it since I’m not playing mono black and don’t have a crazy amount of mana ramp.

I’ve been meaning to put in my Luminarch Ascension , Windborn Muse , No Mercy , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , and Enlightened Tutor . I also have a Containment Priest so I should probably put that in since it also goes good with Kaya, Ghost Assassin

I would like to hear your reasons for making some of the cuts you suggest.

Ripwater on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

precociousapprentice, ah okay. Don't get me wrong, but is winning with that combo any different than helm + Leyline? I admire your decision to make the deck in a more aikido way, it's the spirit of the deck. But it still feels like you are forced to deal with a very competitive meta and thus playing these kinda (in my opinion) a bit cheap combo's and in no way in the aikido spirit you claim trying to go back to.

I've played I think over 30 games (a lot less then you have ofcourse) with your old build and I agree with your opinion about the previous build. I also often had the feeling we played more stax and too much big flashy things. But at least Gisela, Blade of Goldnight did exactly what we want to do, use our opponents power against each other AND serving as a wincon.

Also cards like Comeuppance already won me games, of in worst case scenario set my opponent a lot back. Where you choose to ignore these, in my opinion again, very good and thematic cards for the deck.

And things like Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Gifted Aetherborn or Serra Ascendant in what way to these add to the spirit off the deck? Putting those in while taking out Master of Cruelties for example? Also wouldnt Duelist's Heritage not be a better option for bruce? And also more in line of the deck? And card's like Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker ?

Yes, they are maybe less competitive, or at least more expensive to put down. But again I kinda have the feeling you are maybe in a very competitive meta.

Dualcaster Mage is something I'm still curious about as well... I love the Reverberate effect's. To the point where I run Fork , Reverberate and Reiterate (the buyback is worth it)

Also Rebuff the Wicked has proven very very valuable for me, when they try to go after your Sunforger

Again I'm in no way trying to bash on your choices or making fun of them. If it comes out like that, then I am sorry in advance. I'm just trying to have a healthy discussion with you :)

Another question, how do you deal with people smacking you in your face either way? I had moments where I really tried to lay low. Only having marchesa out (sometimes I was the monarch, sometimes I wasn't). But then still people tend to attack me for no reason what so ever. Or even worse take Marchesa out, leaving me basically open.
