Gisela, Blade of Goldnight Discussion

Is the first ability of Gisela, Blade of Goldnight a replacement effect, turning it into non-combat damage and thus not commander damage? And, by proxy, would this extend toward other players who are seeking to lay in with commander damage upon other opponents, as well?

Similarly, does her second ability also turn potential commander damage into non-combat damage against me, effectively making me "safe" from that potential wincon?

Goldnight Memorial


Whenever a source would deal damage to an opponent or a permanent an opponent controls, it deals double damage instead.

Whenever a source would deal damage to you or a permanent you control, prevent half that damage rounding up.

Whenever an Angel, Cleric, or Soldier creature you control is exiled or dies, draw a card.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , but I added the last bit.

Make a land that does not tap for mana, tutor or provide a discount to casting spells.

Have you tried Gisela, Blade of Goldnight ? It's expensive, but extremely powerful. It's a deal with or die to card that has some political uses as a cherry on top.

DemonDragonJ on Kaldheim official spoilers

Coward_Token, I just saw that article, several hours ago, and I am very pleased to see that WotC is reprinting both Frost Titan and Inferno Titan on the plane of Kaldheim, even if they were not in the actual set, and they even included Primeval Titan and Grave Titan as bonuses; I noticed that Sun Titan is conspicuously absent, so, apparently, WotC likely felt that that creature was not sufficiently "metal" compared to the others.

I cannot stand the sickeningly cute artwork on the cards in the Valentine's Day set, which is especially annoying, because Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is one of my favorite creatures in the game, and I definitely would like to have had alternate artwork of her that was actually awesome and aesthetically pleasing.

griffstick on How to play aggro?

You got to take advantage of what boros gives you to be aggressive. The biggest thing boros gives you that no other color pairing gives you is extra combats. Take advantage of that with cards like Combat Celebrant, Aurelia, the Warleader, World at War, Scourge of the Throne, Seize the Day, Savage Beating, Relentless Assault, Moraug, Fury of Akoum, Waves of Aggression, Response / Resurgence, Breath of Fury Hellkite Charger, Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde and Port Razer. Along with that you need to speed up the damage output. Boros gives you damage doublers, with cards like Fiendish Duo, Goblin Goliath, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Insult, Furnace of Rath, Gratuitous Violence, Dictate of the Twin Gods, Curse of Bloodletting, Bitter Feud, Angrath's Marauders, Overblaze, Inquisitor's Flail, and Fiery Emancipation.

Also consider other things boros gives you that will speed up damage like double strike. Boros gives you haste, trample, and evasion. You need to consider all of those. All while staying low on curve and fast in ramp. If you do this you'll have a good aggro deck.

Proposed changes to give some beefier creatures or ways to fight my buddy DarthSeatb3lt and his Gisela, Blade of Goldnight deck.

  1. Replace Murmuring Mystic with Silent-Blade Oni
  2. Replace Soul Manipulation with Arcane Adaptation
  3. Replace Merfolk Windrobber with Thieving Skydiver
  4. Replace Island with Clearwater Pathway  Flip
  5. Replace Island with Sea Gate Restoration  Flip

I may drop the fetches for basics and look for room for Throatseeker.
