Why isn't he seeing play in constructed like he did during shards/zendikar standard?

Opponent: I use his 0 ability, turning him into a 6/6 creature, and swing! You must be so mad...
Me: Vapor Snag :)

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.

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

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!

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.

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

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

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

Aggro
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.
