Quote from diateone »yeah. My question was more about whether "you" is considered as targeting.
Quote from tarotplz »Quote from diateone »Stupid question: can we runed halo our bitterblossom not to lose life? it says "you" but not sure if that counts as target.
I don´t think so, because it`s "lose 1 life" and not "deals 1 damage".
Then again I´m not a judge by any means, so maybe post this in the rules question forum for a better answer?

Quote from tarotplz »Quick question, is it ever worth it to run more than 1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar?
I get that in general Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better in our deck because it buffs our tokens up to insane ammounts and helps stabilize in the aggressive matchups, but on an empty board Gideon seems way more impactful. His token ability doesn't cost any loyality and he can put our opponents on quite the fast clock all by himself.
Recently I´ve seen these B/W Smallpox lists do really well and they play 3 or even 4 Gideons. It made me think about why almost all our lists only play 1 or even 0.
What are your thoughts on this?

My LGS is notoriously burn-heavy. 4 Feed the Clan on the sideboard seem to be the usual plan, but do you have any tips on how to configure the main deck for that? Is Scavenging Ooze actually good against burn? The life gain seems too slow to matter and it needs something to eat before it can survive any blocking. Maindecking Dismember seems bad for that meta, should I try Prey Upon or something like that? Some people here seem to be even playing no maindeck removal at all (The Ceaseless Hunger's list above for example), how's that working out for you?
