Giver of Runes Discussion

Why do you play both gideons? I would rather play cards like:

Your playing 4 single target removal spells in a cedh deck, which is okay but unusual. I can highly recommend Gatekeeper of Malakir, because its a recurable removal.

Thoughts on Mother of Runes/Giver of Runes to protect my guys if I did want to go the high risk high reward route and keep the Pandemonium? Too easy pickings? Just delaying the inevitable?

I'm not fond of comments like that from Mgalangzingme, because "scrap this deck and build something different" isn't really good for anything. However, they bring up a good point. There's really not enough artifacts in there to make Puresteel Paladin the absolute freak that it can be.

To remedy this issue, I would add Sword of the Animist and 2x Sword of Vengeance, then double up on Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice. That would bring the equipment count up to 13, and with the Darksteel Citadel, the total artifact count would be 17. A much better ratio, and maybe even still too low.

To fit in the extra swords, first I would remove 2x Faith's Shield (you already have a ton of protection in the deck). Next, I would drop Mirran Crusader completely, bring Stoneforge Mystic and Giver of Runes down to 3 each, which would make room for the adds I already mentioned, plus leave room for 2x Knight Exemplar and 1x Balan, Wandering Knight.

I know that's a lot of changes, but I hope at least it's more helpful than simply saying "this deck doesn't work, build something different."

Danitha Capashen, Paragon is just a better Fiendslayer Paladin considering you can give her protection with Giver of Runes. Another note is that it looks like your deck is mostly comprised of Knights, so you would get a lot of value from a couple of Knight Exemplar.

Sigiled Sword of Valeron also fits nicely with the deck theme, creates more knights, and makes the creature it is attached to to be a knight as well for Exemplar purposes.

@ THCue ,

I'm glad you like it. Giver of Runes seems like a perfectly valid placeholder for me, it's always helpful to have more ways to protect our goat. If you think you can afford to raise the CMC for a tiny bit, Sun Titan might prove quite useful with this list, as it mostly consists of low-cmc-permanents. Another card that just didn't make into the list is Phyrexian Metamorph, which is very versatile and sort of a slightly weaker Clever Impersonator. Also it does allow even more Perplexing Chimera-copies... >:)

Have fun playing!

@The_Legionarre, thanks for your detailed comment!

I'll consider those cards, especially Giver of Runes seems like a nice addition to the deck!

About the Birds, while playtesting, I found out I really need them to keep the tempo up and to be able to play things on time, and I even consider adding 1 or 2 more because sometimes, I feel like I'm mana screwed...

Very Very Great update my friend. Now I have alot to read and already Ordered the cards LOL. Minus the guilded drake I had to just throw in Giver of Runes until I can trade or you have something you would toss in for a great place holder. Also missing 2 of the old duels and Serra's Sanctum

Great update!
