Rest in Peace


When Rest in Peace enters the battlefield, exile all cards from all graveyards.

If a card or token would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.

Rest in Peace Discussion

cdkime on War of the Spark: Spoilers ...

ZendikariWol - I was careful not to say that he would never come back, merely that it was time to retire the character and that his death would be a fitting end to his arc.

Interestingly, Nic Kelman, head of Magic's story, indicated in an interview with Polygon that Gideon would not be coming back. Polygon, unfortunately, did not provide the quote which indicated this. The reprint of Rest in Peace in Gideon's signature spellbook provides further evidence his rest will be undisturbed. So, it's possible Gideon will not return; but I won't be shocked if he does.

I'm normally the "elf-combo" guy and the thing I hate to face is multiple control decks in the same table. Your list isn't half bad but you lack a reliable Wincon, you're using the dramatic scepter combo and...that's it XD

If you want to keep the "Nope Pope" in the command zone that's fine, he's a great commander, but you might take a look at Baral, Cheif of Compliance and Naru Meha, Master Wizard as alternative commanders, Belive me they are REALLY strong control decks and have combo wincoms capable of ending the game on the spot.

As for Azorius, cut down the planeswalkers and add more spot removal + counterspells, Arcane Denial and Mana Drain (if you have the budget, try Delay if you don't!) are great counterspells that can swing the game in your favor! Path to Exile can get rid of an annoying creature or combo piece and the life gain normally won't matter in the end.

Also, you're using Rest in Peace combo it with Helm of Obedience for more fun!

DemonDragonJ on Signature Spellbook: Gideon

I cannot believe that there has not yet been a thread for this, so, I shall make one.

The next installment of the Signature Spellbook series has been revealed, and it is Signature Spellbook: Gideon.

I admit that I was certain that the next installment would be for Chandra, but it is more dramatically appropriate to have it feature Gideon, since it seems likely that he shall die in War of the Spark, and this also make it very likely that there shall be a spellbook for each of the original five members of the Gatewatch (Jace, Gideon, Chandra, Nissa, and Liliana).

The cards in this set are as follows:

Gideon Jura

Martyr's Bond

Path to Exile

Rest in Peace

Shielded by Faith

True Conviction


Blackblade Reforged

The cards are very visually-impressive, but I am slightly disappointed, because all of them have already been printed in the modern frame style, and this series of products is a great way to reprint older cards in the new frames. However, I am glad that none of the cards are filler, as occasionally happened with the From the Vault series, although I do feel that eight cards is simply too few; ten cards would have been much better.

I definitely plan to purchase foil versions of both Path to Exile and True Conviction , provided that they are not too expensive.

Also, it is so wonderful to see new artwork from Richard Kane Ferguson, since he has not illustrated a card for this game since Eventide in 2008; as usual, his artwork is amazing! I do hope that this means that artists such as Rebecca Guay, Ron Spencer, or Thomas M. Baxa may eventually illustrate for WotC, again.

What does everyone else say about this? What are your thoughts about the second installment of the Signature Spellbook series?

I think your sideboard could use some improvement.

At the moment, you have very little to protect yourself against burn and other spells that would target you. Leyline of Sanctity would work well. As a budget alternative, you could consider Aegis of the Gods .

You may also want to think about protecting your creatures with Mark of Asylum .

To make room for these cards, I would consider dropping Asceticism and reducing the number of Damping Sphere , Leyline of the Void , and Knight of Autumn . Especially Leyline of the Void, since you can't cast it (this slot would be better served by Rest in Peace or even Sentinel Totem in Selesnya anyway). You already have plenty of hexproof cards, so Asceticsm is expensive for the effect.

More ideas for your sideboard:

4x Leyline of Sanctity (it's a game winner against burn and it delays mill and black decks that play Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize ) Nature's Claim of Seal of Primordium against Ensnaring Bridge and the likes of that. Ofcourse you should add Rest in Peace especially in the current meta (Phoenix is heavily played and Dredge doesn't like RiP as well). Stony Silence is also good. Since you play a heavy creature based deck, you should prepare yourself for boardwipes like Damnation and Anger of the Gods . In that case you can surprise your opponent by playing Mana Tithe . They will never see that one coming ;)

Since you are running Kaya, Rest in Peace might be a great mainboard option as a singleton as well as Surgical Extraction or Extirpate . I might also suggest cutting at least 2 Esper Charms and the 2 opt for 4 Serum Visions as it will allow you to dig through your deck more effectively. I hope this helps, +1

My favorite thing in here is Energy Field + Rest in Peace combo. Add Enlightened Tutor for redundancy and to make it a realistic goal.
