Oath of Gideon Discussion

Thanks for the comment and the up vote TheFireLizard. I had considered Oath of Gideon but I don't know what I would take out. Doubling Season lets me ultimate all of my planswalkers except Venser, the Sojourner when they come out.Oath of Gideon would let them stay so I will work on it.

I agree with focusing the deck on the more important cards of the deck. Focusing down on which gideons to focus on. Kytheon likes early swarm to flip him over. which looks like what most of the deck may be going for. Suggestions for that may be switching to mono white and adding cards that like to go wide such as Oketra's Monument, Oketra the True or Oath of Gideon...If you wanna splash green and go super friends Oath of Ajani, Oath of Nissa, Ajani Unyielding, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes, Elspeth, Sun's Champion probably okay. These are not super competative suggestions, but maybe can help bounce ideas off of.

Hey, looks good for a first deck.

If you want a less powerful, but still good and most importantly budget Doubling Season effect consider Oath of Gideon.

Tamiyo, Field Researcher and Vraska the Unseen are great budget (less than $6) Walkers for a Superfriends strategy. Tamiyo's ultimate is amazing with other Planeswalkers casting them for free from your hand and Vraska's -3 is great unconditional removal.

Board wipes are very good with a Planeswalker strategy. Day of Judgment is budget consider including it. Other than Sylvan Caryatid I don't think you need other creatures.

For the manabase I suggest going with green and white as the two dominate colors with green as the most dominate. Green because of Oath of Nissa and Caryatid and white because of Deploy the Gatewatch. You can then splash blue and black. I don't think you need to worry about red because the only red Walkers who matter are Bolas and each has a high mana casting cost. Relying on Oath of Nissa and Deploy for Bolas is fine. Play a single source of red in the manabase just in case.

Good luck with your deck.

I'm not a nice person but I want more people to be dicks to eachother by playing Superfriends. It really depends on your price range. I always find that blue and blue-multicolored really works for 'walkers, like Venser, the Sojourner, Tezzeret the Seeker ,Jace, Architect of Thought, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Jace, the Mind Sculptor, and Narset Transcendent. Good blue support cards: Deepglow Skate, Cyclonic Rift, Thrummingbird,Tezzeret's Gambit, Inexorable Tide, and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

As for green and greenish planeswalkers: Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and Nissa, Vital Force and Nissa, Steward of Elements, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Garruk Wildspeaker, maybe either Kiora, Ajani, Mentor of Heroes and Unyielding and Vengeant (the ones you already have), Xenagos, the Reveler, Vraska the Unseen, Sarkhan Vol, Garruk Relentless  Flip, Samut, the Tested, Oath of Nissa, and Primal Vigor.

As for White: Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura, Ajani Steadfast, any Elspeth, Oath of Gideon, Djeru, With Eyes Open and the other non-planeswalker white spells (which you seem to have covered), and Nahiri, the Harbinger.

As for Red: none of them. Fuck red. All the Chandras but the new one don't appeal to me and you should only splash red.

And last (but certainly not least); BLACK: Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Kaya (if you wanna be bitchy), Sarkhan the Mad, Liliana of the Veil and Liliana Vess and Liliana, Death's Majesty, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Oath of Liliana, and that one black removel spell that proliferates.

And as for three colors and colorless: Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Rings of Brighthearth, Contagion Engine, and maybe even Throne of Geth.

Sorry for how unorganized this is, don't give none. Good luck on pissing all your friends off until they get sick of you then you sell all the 'walkers and buy Eldrazi Tribal and they don't invite you to parties 'n all... And about your deck, my advice would be too follow the above suggestions and try to lower the mana-curve.

my friend plays a variation of this sort of deck (without green) and it is very competitive. he has a ton of maindeck removal/disruption and that seems to hold him up against combo. to keep the green and round out the deck, i think making it more of an attrition sort of deck instead of token pumps. like for instance, if you cut the Intangible Virtues out, drop down to 2 Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, 2 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and swap the Voice of Resurgence to the SB, you can then maindeck some combination of Abrupt Decay, Fatal Push, Thoughtseize, Liliana of the Veil, Liliana, the Last Hope (the minus ability may just be a flop depending on creature count), Inquisition of Kozilek, or maybe even Elspeth, Sun's Champion. Elspeth Tirel may even be a useful SB option, albeit a little slow against the decks you actually want it for. other cards you can consider are Deploy the Gatewatch (if you added more PWs, something like 15-20+) and Elspeth, Knight-Errant. Theoretically, you could do a superfriends/token deck with deploy the gw and perhaps the Oath of Gideon, Oath of Liliana, and/or Oath of Ajani. Cool stuff, man. deck looks fun as is.

This seems super sweet.

Have you tested with Ugin, the Spirit Dragon? It's ultimate might be a good way to land a few more walkers mid to late game.

I also wonder if Doubling Season or Oath of Gideon might be helpful. It might also be fun to test Liliana, the Last Hope with something like Ashnod's Altar + Gemstone Array or Phyrexian Altar so her emblem/ultimate becomes a mana battery full of zombies.

Have fun brewing!
