Gideon is high mobility Caster adept in wave clearing and burst damage. Using his abilities, Gideon can control fights and be a dominant threat with or without a team.

Cosmic Rift is Gideon's main source of damage. Gideon opens a rift in space and drops a meteor that deals damage in an area. Dark Tether will slow the enemy down ensuring Gideon lands Cosmic Rift. Gideon's Ultimate, Black Hole, deals large amounts of damage and pulls enemies toward him. Torn Space will allow Gideon to teleport to get in and position himself to hit as many enemies as possible.

Late game, use Cosmic Rift to aggressively push down lanes. Look for opportunities to gank the enemy team with Torn Space and combo Black Hole with allied abilities for ultimate destruction.
