You will create a token that's a copy of what was printed on the original card, minus the word "Legendary." It will be a planeswalker, not a creature, with 3 loyalty counters. It will then gain haste, but as you are already in combat and loyalty abilities are restricted to sorcery speed, it's unlikely that the token will get to attack. As the token is always a planeswalker, the questions of what happen when it becomes a planewalker are somewhat moot.
Also worth noting, Gideon of the Trials is always a planeswalker, it's ability that turns it into a creature specifies that it's still a planeswalker. Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker is the only planeswalker that stops being a planeswalker when it becomes a creature, but when you make a copy the copy is still going to be a planeswalker, as the animating ability is not a copiable characteristic.

I move to combat and I get a second 4/4 Gideon Indestructible Creature token that also happens to be a Planeswalker. Only this one isn't Legendary.
Sooo... when we move out of combat and into my end step where Gideon reverts back to being a Planeswalker, does my token become a Planeswalker and now I have two Gideon of the Trials which I may use?
I'm sure this is bound to show up somewhere. I speculate that in this particular instance when the token becomes a Planeswalker again, it's going to check his Loyalty. I'm not entirely sure what happens now.
The Loyalty is printed on the card, therefore it enters the battlefield with that many counters on it. But counters are a non-copiable attribute of a card, so the token won't have the counters that the normal permanent will have.
But... the Loyalty IS printed on the card. Therefore, it is copiable.
So, when the token becomes a Planeswalker, it DOES gain the Loyalty counters and thus prevents it from dying... right?
And yes, this question applies to any Planeswalker that becomes a creature, such as Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker.

Jace, Cunning Castaway is one being talked about for Standard right now. If you have a list similar to the B/W walkers list I've seen around, Gideon of the Trials isn't bad to get the emblem and be out of bolt range the turn he comes down. The full list (aside from ones that don't have a 'real' ult like Gideon Jura) is:
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar can anyway, but Settle allows him to live through it
There are 3 other notable ones, who can't ultimate immediately, but activating their plus once and then using Settle the Score allows them to ult the turn after they come down:

AaronEchoes: Thank you! The deck is as much fun as you think I'd be :)
Reyemile: Thank you for the suggestions :)
electromancer: I do like the idea of Sarkhan the Mad. I'll probably swap him out over Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker. My issue with Heartless Summoning I already have a lot of reduction costs. For more ramp I'd probably end up playing more things that fetch actual lands. Thanks for the feedback :)

I dig it, I might consider Chandra, Flamecaller and Hazoret the Fervent in place of Wurmcoil Engine and Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker. I think the latter two cards are good, but the former two have more synergy with your deck and what it's trying to do.
