Gideon, the overpowered Planeswalker

Modern Midrange Soldiers Spirits Tokens W/B (Orzhov)



Wahoo, reached rank 1 so far with this one, ty all!

Well, I personally hate Planeswalkers, but a friend of mine keeps playing them in almost every deck he has and drives me nuts with it on regular bases. So I thought I'll overcome my hate and build a deck around these morons myself. Luckily enough, Gideon of the Trials just was released and boy, this is one bad guy. The Emblem, the manacost, much wow, many whats :) But enough for the intro and let's jump in to the deck to see what we got ourselves into:

-The Plainswalkers-

  • Gideon of the Trials: Our assurance! Cast him, get your Emblem and sit back and wait what's coming along.
  • Gideon, Champion of Justice: The substitute player for Gideon of the Trials. Cast him as soon as you can (but hopefully after his little brother) and abuse his +1 ability. He literally has nothing else to do than secure our Emblem.
  • Sorin, Lord of Innistrad : As you will see, the other half of this deck will be all about tokens, so here's a Planeswalker which fits this purpose quite perfectly. Use his +1 ability and fill the board constantly. Occasionally his -6 can come in handy.
  • Elspeth, Sun's Champion: Keep on flooding the board with tokens by her +1 ability. Like with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , the -3 can help us controlling what's going on on the board if needed.

-The Tokens-

-The Control-

This deck is still draft, so if you see any chance for optimizations, let me know. Feedback and +1's are welcome all the time :)

Just letting you know that you spelled Planeswalkers incorrectly, unless it was a pun, in which case good show!

Maybe try Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead of the lord of innistrad. Same exact casting cost, plus the lifelink helps in the long run, also the buff stays until your next turn.
