Here's a fun deck I whipped up one drunken night.

I love mono-white and Gideon of the Trials screamed for a Kytheon-led deck.


I have some pillowfort cards to hold back attacks on my planeswalkers. The Gideons can suit up with Swords and swing through for some good Damage and effects. Some choice creatures help out the general plan. The Gideon's can sidestep most wraths.

Kytheon + Palisade Giant is cute.
Bunch of tokens + Sublime Archangel will give a Gideon a hefty boost.

Archangel of Thune
Baneslayer Angel
Brimaz, King of Oreskos
Burnished Hart
Commander Eesha
Darien, King of Kjeldor

Emeria Shepherd

Interesting. You're even playing Gideon, Champion of Justice--something I keep trying to put into decks and taking them back out as quickly. Does it seem like you're...a bit mana light? 35 lands and I feel like your average CMC has to be 5 or something. I'm only eyeballing it, but I started looking after not seeing a whole lot of ramp for mono-White.

It is light, I agree. This deck likes to play the mid to late game. I can get some defense up early to help me get to that point. I've hit the 7 for Emeria every game I've played.

CoJ is a game-winner with the right sword to get past blockers.

I'm going to rip apart a couple other decks and one of those has Land Tax. I'll find a spot for it in here.

That's...crazy. Maybe I'm just used to games getting decided or basically decided before Emeria could have a chance to come online. Because that's probably going to be turn 9 for mono-White if you don't miss a land drop, and with 35 land my luck is I'd miss multiple land drops.

So what is Commander Eesha's goal? Just another low-cost flyer? Seems like the protection from creatures would be useful, but that maybe there's another 4-cost that could be more useful (I haven't really looked yet, I'm just curious).

Again, I have enough protection early on that I can usually hold out awhile to the point I get either a doubler or Endless Horizons. I'm not above using Enlightened Tutor to find it. I also don't play against many combo decks. There are a few around but most people frown on them.

There is a bit of a political aspect to it as well. People see planeswalkers and freak out thinking they're going to ult any second. I have to remind them that most of the Gideon's don't really have an ult or if they do, they're not very good.

I felt (and rightly so) I needed a bit more defense in the air. Eesha is great for that. People don't seem to want to waste an attack on me.

Plus, it's another creature I can Swords/Sublime Archangel up and get some damage through.
