How is it even possible that this card is lower than a 4.... why is Turn to Frog rated higher???

Hold on... so If I use his 0 Sundial of the Infinite (at end of turn when the ability gos on the stack), he would be a permanent 6/6 plansewalker creature that could never be damaged? That I could block with?? Good deal! I have not seen this combo yet, maybe because all of the removal in STD. Still would be boss though.

Edit: Okay, I understand now. This is one of the more complicated cards forgive me if I made a mistake, your majesty.

@Averyck: Doom Blade targets Creatures, a Planeswalker isn't a Creature. :)

As far as I know, the only way currently to straight-up destroy a Planeswalker is with "Destroy Target Permanent", and the only four ways I know of in Standard won't be Standard for much longer. Argentum Armor, Beast Within, Lux Cannon and Spine of Ish Sah will move to Extended when Avacyn Restored is released.

I still love this card though.. His first ability in a W/G with something like Fog is good fun. Or use Clinging Mists, it pretty much guarantees Gideon can destroy 2 creatures.

And while it's more fun to put it on a Predator Ooze, giving him Lure after activating his third ability is also cool, it guarantees none of your other creatures will be blocked. :)

Pulled him today... Oh yes. I am a happy man.

Grand Abolisher means Gideon's 0 ability is no risk.

+0 Gideon and tap Experiment Kraj for a counter on Gideon.

Does the Kraj get Gideon's planeswalker abilities? I've heard them be called activated abilities before but I find the concept of all of your opponent's creatures being forced to attack another creature confusing.

By far my favorite planswalker

So manly. I love this card. He's so good in any kind of deck you use.

Use as a repeatable fog, and as removal. When you are winning, use him as a finisher.

Use his +2 to force your opponents to attack (leaving little or no creatures for blocking). Use him as removal to kill their lifelink creatures that make aggro sad. If they have no creatures, use him as a 6/6 that only costs 5 mana.

He also dodges board wipes like a champ (EVEN YOU OWN!!!). Wrath of god, +0, swing for 6. That works in aggro AND control decks.

What is with the weird smudges on his artwork? Like the patches of red and blue?

I tend to like other planeswalkers better, but Gideon is still awesome. A planeswalker becoming a creature is just so damn awesome, and wonderfully flavorful, but have trouble finding fitting applications for his +2 ability. Yes, you can have him take damage for you, but unless you use it more than once, your only looking at 8 or less damage blocked. Obviously, you can also draw your opponents out of their defensive positioning, but unless you are prepared, that can end horribly.

Ultimately, DarthParallax said it perfectly. This guy is great, provided you put the right cards around him.

When I first started playing, my friend was white all the way and was wanting this card so badly. That night, I got my very first pack, and this guy was in it. It was the most awesome thing to ever happen. The next day, I told my friend about it and within the next week, he was complainig about it and switched over to black. It was hilarious!

One of my favorite planeswalkers. But I always wondered, why is the 0 ability above the -2 ability?

Strange, but powerful card. It took me the entire time he was originally in Standard for me to appreciate how powerful he is. It was amazing how much this guy changes the dynamics of a board state. True to character, he bailed me out of so many jams. Sometimes he'd bite it in the process, but not before making his mark on the game--stalling for a turn or three, or killing a critical opposing creature or three. Of course, he worked great with Tamiyo, but the number of times that game state actually occurred was negligible. Usually I'd stall until I could wipe the board, and then he'd pretty much take over the game. Then again, other times, he was pretty much just a 5-mana Fog. 4.5/5.
