I agree. Sick artwork. Emrakul is a beast(CHEAP SKEETER mind you), but Gideon made him a punk. Awesome FLAV!!!

Maximum Style points for having this out, making Gideon Jura a creature, then winning by somehow reducing your life to 1 with Emrakul.

Emrakul may come back if he's sent to the graveyard, unfortunately against Gideon, he never made it that far.

God damn Gideon is hardcore D:

Seriosuly one of the best card artworks in Magic. Also the most flavorful card in recent sets, followed by War Report and Doomed Traveler.

Huh, all of which are white. Welp, I suppose if Wizards loves Blue competitively, they love White flavoriciously?

I would have one the game if I only had this card out when I had won life...

Emrakul looks like one of those dead jellyfish that float ashore. An utterly unceremonious state for an Eldrazi.

And completely fitting.

@Mr. Wimples

Challenge Accepted. White/Black/Red/Green deck. I'm going to assume you have a lot of mana, btw.

Step 1:Get life total to 16 (Burn yourself with red, or pay life with black), Leyline of Punishment, Bazaar Trader, Domri Rade and this card.

Step 2: Play Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Give it to them with Bazaar Trader.

Step 3: Turn Gideon Jura into a creature card. Enchant him with Ragged Veins. Then play Untamed Might for 10 so Gideon is a 16/16.

Step 4: Activate Domri's -2, having Gideon and Emrakul fight each other.

Step 5: Die in explosion of flavor as you pass the turn, with Gideon at 1 toughness, and win on the upkeep of your extra turn!

Gideon Jura's abilities should have been alot better

Wait, why play the expensive (3White) and creature mandatory Worship when we have Angel's Grace for White and with Split Second?
Ad Nauseum is...an interesting card for this. To say as much as possible about it. I do love Free Lightning Bolts, and Death's Wish can be very good for this. Lord of the Pit makes for some good ole' fashioned fun, and Braids, Conjurer Adept/Warpworld can maybe help you get it out.
Remember, the combo is sensitive, and 4-of is excellent with Twinning Glass, in case the first one got countered.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
