Gisela, Blade of Beat-Your-Face-In


Commander / EDH

Score: Unrated


Here is my take on a Gisela deck. Im not very good at deck-building, but this is supposed to be a Boros Agro/Political/Angel EDH. All criticisms and suggestions are welcome.


Update 1 — Nov. 19, 2012

The deck is finally in its "final" form.

Folcon says...


You can cut at least 5 lands, plus you have 2 Boros Signet in there. Also, off the top of my head, you can probably cut Boros Swiftblade , Fencing Ace , and replace card:Inquisitor's Flail with Grappling Hook .

I'm going to suggest a lot of cards, since I have a Gisela deck myself: Gisela EDH. You don't have to add them all, it's just stuff to consider.

If you're running Sunforger, you should consider putting in some better tutor targets. You've got Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares already, but consider adding some of the following: Return to Dust , Price of Progress , Second Sunrise /card:Faith's Reward, Volcanic Fallout , Oblation , Chaos Warp , Ghostway .

Gisela is really good with damage-based wipes, because if she's in play, they'll wipe your opponent's boards while leaving your creatures alone. So instead of Day of Judgment or Wrath of God , consider Inferno , Molten Disaster , Mizzium Mortars , or Brightflame .

If you want redundancy of Gisela's damage-halving ability, try Light of Sanction , Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant , or Mark of Asylum .

Since you're Red/White, card draw is going to be difficult. Try Wheel of Fate /Wheel of Fortune , Inheritance , and if you can get Land Tax + Scroll Rack online, you're golden.

Some other fun cards to consider: Pyrohemia , Heartless Hidetsugu , Hammerfist Giant , and Repercussion

Thank you, Folcon for a very clear and thought out response. I checked out your Gisela EDH and will probably be altering mine to match it a bit. I took all your suggestions to heart and altered my deck accordingly. Thanks!

Oh, two things I should point out. Heartless Hidetsugu will kill you if have any damage-doubler other than Gisela in play, and using Sunforger to cast card:Faith's Reward/Second Sunrise doesn't work after a complete board wipe, since Sunforger will already be unattached from a creature.

Overall, it's looking much better. Glad I was able to help.
