Would be really cool if he had -1: gains indestructible until end of turn.

The latter one is a lot nicer in that it doesn't die to lightning bolt.

Both don't die to lightning bolt Mown. The first has loyalty 6. The second has loyalty 4. If Gideon's loyalty goes down to zero he still dies.

EDIT: Nevermind, it turns out that damage would stick onto the creature side while its toughness is reduced to 3.

My post count is increasing and I participate less in games because I'm treating the place more like a laboratory than a forum.

Thanks Mown and Lilystorm for pointing out the importance of indestructibility, and Predatordetector for making explicit why it's important. This does lead me towards the second of these two cards because I think simplicity is what these cards aim at. I feel like the second version should have starting loyalty equal to its toughness for simplicity's sake.

While we're on the topic of simplicity, is this format too weird? Seems like it's the most elegant (in some sense of the word elegant):

Gideon Unclothed
Planeswalker Creature
____________6/6

I'm imagining the two values on left and right bottom corners of the card.
