Gideon Jura Discussion

TypicalTimmy on New Subtype: Warden

2 days ago

I had this idea that a Warden could be a Subtype.

Wardens are defined as typically Humanoid beings who specialize, in part or in whole, hieromancey.

WOTC, incorrectly, considers hieromancer to be the practice of essentially "law magic".

Ghostly Prison? Hieromancey.

Archangel of Tithes? Hieromancey.

Gideon Jura? Hieromancey.

Well a Warden is someone who practices this magic, but it can extend out of white. Typically into black, and then blue - making it's dominate shard Esper.

Emak of Eternal Prisons

Legendary Creature - Sphinx Warden


At the beginning of your upkeep, tap target nonland permanent and put a prison counter on it. As long as you control Emak, permanents with prison counters on them can't be untapped.

Remove three prison counters from among permanents: Exile target nonland permanent or counter target spell or ability.


Yawgmoth's Watcher

Creature - Human Warden

When Yawgmoth's Watcher enters the battlefield, you may exile a creature card from target player's graveyard. If you do, that player can't cast creatures with the same name as long as you control this creature.

The price of flesh is best when it is scarce.


Orzhov Enforcer

Creature - Human Warden

When Orzhov Enforcer enters the battlefield, choose a spell type. Whenever an opponent casts a spell of the chosen type, you gain 1 life and they lose 1 life.

"Your crime was being alive in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Your bond shall be paid in full, with blood."


Just a few examples of how Wardens would be designed.

Mzuzi the Unlucky

Legendary Planeswalker - Mzuzi

Spells your opponents cast that target you or permanents or spells you control cost less to cast.

+2: Each opponent creates a 3/3 green Beast creature token. During each opponent's next turn, creatures that player controls attack Mzuzi the Unlucky if able.

+2: Target opponent gains control of Mzuzi the Unlucky.

-9: You get an emblem with "If you have cards in your graveyard, you can't lose the game." and "As long as you have 0 or less life, whenever you lose life, for each 1 life you lost, exile a permanent you control or a card from your hand or graveyard."


The static is based on Accursed Witch  Flip, the first +2 is based on Gideon Jura/goad as a mechanic, and other +2 is based on Harmless Offering as well as Gilded Drake-type effects. The ultimate is a mix of Worship, Phyrexian Unlife, and Lich's Mastery.

I couldn't really think of a green aspect, so I just gave everyone some beasts to attack Mzuzi with.

Can a hatebear not in white, not like Gaddock Teeg or Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, but no white, like

Also not like a Magus of Stasis-type deal or Magus of the Moon, but like Collector Ouphe (I'm aware is't Null Rod), Yixlid Jailer, Melira, Sylvok Outcast, Vexing Shusher (kinda?), Stigma Lasher, Eidolon of the Great Revel, Ash Zealot, Tunnel Ignus, Harsh Mentor, and Immolation Shaman.

I very much agree for Elspeth, Sun's Champion , uJar_Gamer though she is slightly over budget. I would probably switch Gideon Jura for her because Ugin is one of the most important Planeswalkers in the deck, being able to produce 2/2 every turn that create essential card advantage.

I have been thinking, should i replace Gideon Jura with Gideon, the Oathsworn ? I rarely tutor for Gideon Jura , his usage is quite niche in the deck apart from potentially protecting some of your other planewalkers for a bit. Gideon, the Oathsworn can help tokens a little and has an achievable ult that can be used politically as a threat so people don’t attack you. What should I do?

NerdPounder on Boros Nahiri prison (budget)

One thing I would suggest is Temple of Triumph , as you're not really doing much on turn 1 and it can help smooth out your draws significantly. Also, Abrade in the mainboard is a pretty good thing to be running right now with how many Urza decks there are running around. Also, if you're going for a prison vibe, Gideon of the Trials and Gideon Jura are pretty good at controlling your opponent, and as of right now you don't have much game vs combo decks and little Gideon can help you not die to combo. I'm also not sure the miracle cards are good enough without a way to manipulate the top of your library for them, so you could probably swap those out with some number of Gideons.

BMHKain on Recent updating as of Throne ...

10 months ago

I decided to post this as I had no text-based presence in some time now. I'll try my best to not to reference anything this time, & so on...

W/ Throne of Eldraine not only looking surprisingly good, even if I dunno how the Adventure Keyword works, There are several things I wanted to ask about in particular. Frankly, I wanted to start w/ Kenrith, the Returned King (Where is his card?!). Awesome that he is Prime Human Tribal Material as a 99 via Morophon, the Boundless under the Human Type. But I'm having mere hope he'd also make for a great Superfriends CMDR; but that became out of the question; my deck of such a type doesn't even run that many creatures; 3/5 Abilities Nullified; one of which ( BTW.) might help your opponents more.

Not as good as everyone said he was now, huh...

Not even the only part of this: The Royal Scions can Loot, give a creature +2/+0, Trample & First Strike, & Drawing 4 to burn any target equal to your current handsize. Crazy? Yes. "Where is our follow up to Will Kenrith ?" Uh... No. You'll have to deal w/ Rowan Kenrith as well sadly. As for her: Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage , Buff a creature by +3/+0 & gives First Strike? Awesome. Deal 1 to two creatures & they can't block? Awesome. &, they even seemed to taken a Number from (OK, now I want a third, actually decent Tibalt; unless he died during WAR) where they both take control of all enemy creatures, untap them, & they all have Haste; & it's kinda like a wincon, kinda? Fine, I'll give you Oko. Oko, Thief of Crowns is just, AWESOME. & some awesome abilities: Creating a Food Token, which when sac'd gives you 3 Life; just like any Video Game w/ Food as an item (Well, not all of them...). this Faerie Badass even can render your opponents Artifice & creatures to 3/3 Elks w/ no abilities. You can even barter for any of your opponents' Elks for one of your own. But you want to ruin your opponent's plans right? Then kill his Mana Rocks! Even Oko, the Trickster can buff a creature w/ 2 +1/+1 Counters, also, this guy can do a better impression of Gideon Jura (I guess that's why WotC killed him off; All of Gideon's Planeswalker Cards suck.) by becoming any creature, & he can't be damaged until the End of Turn, when he becomes himself again. But he will force a Hellstorm by making all your creatures Base Stat's 10/10, & get Trample each. They're initial abilities remain unchanged.

"But what about the new Garruk?!"

Irony? He finally makes an appearance. Garruk, Cursed Huntsman . While he won't get off the field as easily as the other Garruks, having 2 2/2 Wolves that buff all Garruk Walkers you control by one each when they die is epic. Killing a creature even allows Card Advantage. His Emblem can even give your creatures +3/+3 & Trample. This may not seem like much, until you realize, the more you keep using this Emblem again & again, you realize how much leftover damage can be forced onto your opponents. It's that BIG.

After all that is said & done, I actually was thinking of what hidden gems Post-WAR era Superfriends would be good w/… Any ideas until even now? I'm pondering as Spoilers for Throne of Eldraine is still in progress.

Alright, Time to get off the Superfriends Bandwagon, & I wanted to do some kind of deck similar to Mayael the Anima , Atla Palani, Nest Tender is my best bet; but I don't want to just put in stuff w/ a thematic element; Dinosaurs... & actually want him/her/dunno to actually be a better Mayael than she would ever be. I already know what stuff to harvest such eggs in Record Time. The question now is: How to make Atla Palani, Nest Tender better than Mayael at everything she could ever do?

So overall... I actually want some help yet again; I tried it myself; failed in spite of the effort, but at least did something. I hope one is glad about this. I'll just make some more cuts for some of my more recent stuff for now...

Final Question: Are you in? Taplands are forbidden from the Landbases BTW. Just a thought in case you can find a way to have a 1-Color Manabase, 2-Color Manabase or 3+ Color Manabases. This means Path of Ancestry & the 10 Tri-Lands are out.

I really might need your help yet again, I'll try & work on somethings though; just to prove I'm actually worth something. That, & I might actually change my Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder deck from 4 Colors to 5. Just leave that to me...

Are you okay w/ these terms? A lot, yes, But I'll have to force my efforts for Goat Tribal Anyway.

Thanks for reading; & I appreciate whatever help in the future.

Oh, & my apologies for the huge wall. I guess that's the kind of post I can only do... XL

Although, having only 7 Instants/Sorceries + 1 Walker as a Strict rule outclasses my first idea; even though Blackblade Reforged was one of the cards of an official Spellbook regarding Gideon Jura ...

Gideon Jura is probably at his absolute lowest price atm, his + ability forces an opponent to essentially tap all of their creatures, his - is Swift Reckoning , and his last ability is a wincon.

Karn's Bastion helps add counters to Tumble Magnet and the avenger.

Gideon's Lawkeeper adds to the gideon tribal while also being a pretty good tapper.
