Always Watching Discussion

5dollarMTG on $5 Egyptian Exertion

1 week ago

Following up on Chino90's earlier suggestion: Always Watching had dropped down to 60-70 cents at TCGPlayer, so I've been able to fit in three copies under my $5 budget.

JararoNatsu on Spirit Bounce w/ Soulherder?

2 weeks ago

With the recent Soulherder card that's going to be released soon, I am considering building a W/U tribal Spirit deck that centers around bouncing creatures to buff it up, as well as using ETB effects to lock down the opponent. Obviously I would use cards like Nebelgast Herald , Rattlechains , and Spell Queller , as well as cards like Essence Flux , Path to Exile , and maybe even Always Watching ? I'd also maybe like to include Geist of Saint Traft , Brago, King Eternal , and Drogskol Captain if I can, but they may not fit.

I'm hoping I can get some suggestions for card choices here? I pretty much have lands covered and most of the creatures, but any suggestions would be most welcome. I'd like to keep this tribal, too.


JP-Romero on Gideon's Knights

Always Watching and History of Benalia do not play well together.

You are running mono-white, so why not use the typical staple Honor of the Pure ? Yes, you won't get vigilance, but it's cheaper than Always Watching and your generated knights will also get the boost.

Also, Gideon Jura and Gideon of the Trials don't really work as well as Gideon, Ally of Zendikar with History of Benalia . I would keep the Gideon of the Trials for the Gideon emblem though.

I think this deck has also no real reason for running only 2 Path to Exile . Run a playset!

So, suggestions: -2 Lightning Greaves -2 Inquisitor's Flail -2 Always Watching -1 Gideon Jura -1 Godsend

+2 Path to Exile +4 Honor of the Pure +2 History of Benalia

I’m thinking Always Watching could be an important include for the sideboard in the aggro direction.

Esbilon on The Grey Host

Always Watching and Vapor Snag seem like subpar choices, and you really should consider a playset of Spell Queller , that card is a life-saver, and a fourth Drogskol Captain is another must-have.

I get you about the cost of Noble Hierarch , but the Exalted ability can really come in handy, particularly against prison decks running Ensnaring Bridge .

Phantasmal Image is another excellent choice, usually you'll want to copy your lords, but against the aforementioned prison decks, copying Noble Hierarchs helps out a lot too.

I would put 2x Always Watching and cut off 2x Gideon, Ally of Zendikar , but all in all is a pretty good deck
