    When Geist of Saint Traft attacks Gideon, I believe angel must also attack. From the Gatherer rules clarification on the Gideon page, “Gideon Jura’s first ability doesn’t lock in what it applies to. That’s because the effect states a true thing about a set of creatures, but doesn’t actually change the characteristics of those creatures. As a result, whatever creatures the targeted opponent controls during the declare attackers step of his or her next turn must attack Gideon Jura if able. This includes creatures that come under that player’s control after the ability has resolved and creatures that have lost all abilities.”

    Is there some other rule that makes the Geist somehow special here that I’m not thinking of?

      The key is that the angel was NOT under that player’s control during the declare attackers step. As I understand it, Gideon’s condition is met when all creatures that player controls are declared as attackers; it is this declaration that triggers the Geist and puts an angel into play, AFTER Gideon’s condition has been satisfied. Therefore, the angel is able to attack the opposing player OR Gideon.

      Hopefully that helps clarify a bit. I’m not a judge, but that is my understanding of the interaction. You can probably get a clearer explanation on the MTGSalvation Rules forum. If you do, feel free to post it here! 🙂
