Granted I HATE fighting against Gideon in Standard for the sole reason that he screws up combat and um "breaks the game", but he's back in Return to Ravnica. Thoughts? I've been playing less than a year, so I don't really know of a lot of Magic's storyline, but is this surprising to anyone?
And let it be known, I'm super excited for new mechanics, and Orzhov.
All I know is that my EDH deck is (hopefully) getting new toys in.....February.

No, the guy never died. I don't know where Nate got that.
Gideon was badly beaten by Bolas in the M12 Core Set storyline, which is why he went and recruited the other planeswalkers. Hence the tagline "Gather Your Allies".
I'm glad to see him back in RtR Block, though that was to be expected. It was always said that he originated from that plane, or at least that he had a home base there. Rumor has it that he'll be back under Boros' colors.
