Hold the Gates Discussion

I know what you mean about it being thin. Right now my goal is to survive long enough for me to burn them out with Crackling Perimeter, swing in with Gateway Shade, or combo with Doran, the Siege Tower + Hold the Gates . I planned to saty alive via life gain and the insane toughness buff i get from Hold the Gates. I really like Genesis Wave in here. Scapeshift seems a bit to $50 for me haha but i won't rule it out. Thanks so much btw. I may add some walls and take out some of the aggro stuff, if i do that should i keep in Doran?

That was the implication, if the creature = gate clause were the case then Hold the Gates would already be in the mainboard, seeing as it isn't and the only support the card would receive is slightly more than 10% of the board I haven't put it in.

Though Hold the Gates is potentially hilarious I can't see it working tall too well if Maze's End is my only gate fetch option.

another nice cheap enchantment for some lulzy stalls could be Hold the Gates

Work in Hold the Gates and you don't need to worry.

Interesting idea, consider adding a couple cards listed below to make it more playable!

For more gate synergy and sheer jokes!;

Other good cards you should consider;

I personally would take out Hold the Gates from a boardwipe or two. Maybe something simple like Supreme Verdict but that depends on how much you are willing to spend. Always found the look of mazes end decks hilarious, +1

Thornwood Falls, Tranquil Cove and Blossoming Sands are better than the GuildGates. Of course, if you want to bit the bullet, get shock and fetches. Until you get them, you need to cut 4 forests and add 2 Island and 2 Plains, as untapped mana is needed.

Hold the Gates is not strong enough to run the Gates for, unfortunately. As for some alt wincons, try an Archangel of Thune and a Sublime Archangel. Of course, Baneslayer Angel is good.

This deck will eventually need Path to Exile and Serum Visions.

Llanowar Elves is better served as a Birds of Paradise.
