Gideon's Sacrifice will still work. No part of its effects target, but even if it did your Beloved Chaplain would still be a legal target because the thing doing the targeting is an instant, not a creature.

As a follow up, can I use Gideon's Sacrifice and choose my Beloved Chaplain ? Or is this still targeting?

I ask because the oracle text for Gideon's Sacrifice does not use the word target.

I second Sunforger . But I disagree about it not being that good. It protects your board with Teferi's Protection , Debt of Loyalty , Deflecting Swat and Boros Charm , it removes creatures with Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile and my favorite: Settle the Wreckage , it kills other problematic permanents wit Disenchant , Chaos Warp or Wear / Tear , can shut players down with Silence , Abeyance or Orim's Chant , and in my deck, it wins the game by searching and casting both Gideon's Sacrifice and Arcbond on the same Indestructible creature. It will even find the Lightning Bolt to start the chain.

Sunforger is one of the best boros equipments, at least if you can cheat a bit on the equip cost. But we have Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist , Brass Squire , Puresteel Paladin , Sigarda's Aid , Halvar, God of Battle  Flip and a few others to help with that

I like targeting an Indestructible creature with Arcbond and Gideon's Sacrifice before it takes damage from something, though I usually need Sunforger to consistently do that, which should fit the budget. My Indestructible creature of choice would be Brash Taunter which is a relatively expensive card, but something like Cathar's Companion would work just as well.

When both effects are active on the creature, and it takes any damage, Arcbond will trigger. It will deal that much damage to each other creature and each player, including yourself. This will trigger Gideon's Sacrifice , preventing that damage, dealing it to the creature instead. That will trigger Arcbond again, repeating the process. The loop can't be stopped, and will continue until no players have any life left except yourself.

Hello! Dope deck

Have you seen the cards Martyrdom and Gideon's Sacrifice ? You might not need any more redirect damage abilities because you have all the en-Kor creatures.

Guilty Conscience goes infinite with Brash Taunter!

When considering a damage doubler or tripler, Insult/Injury is a great option. Fiery Emancipation and Dictate of the Twin Gods will get exiled as soon as you play them every time lol!
