I won't do your request to leave something up for the other users, but let me say that deteriorated gargoyle is, cool as it is, way too powerful. You'd basically be able to have a 6/5 Darklit Gargoyle on turn 2.

+1 for Gargoyle Tribal!

Just a thought,

Shrieking Grotesque. Since Darklit Gargoyle has a activated ability that you may use, you could benefit from a little hand disruption, too. If you dipped into Black, that gives you access to Duress, Inquisition of Kozilek and Blackmail as well as Utter End and Terminate. Thoughtseize if your budget allows.

Since you have players revealing their hands, Voidstone Gargoyle to keep certain cards from being used, and maybe Sanctum Gargoyle for all the Artifacts in your deck.

For , I would replace the Warden of the Wall with Darksteel Ingot, and Needle Spires with Shambling Vent. All of the Darksteel in your deck, maybe a Darksteel Gargoyle and some board wipe effects.

A pet card is a card you have an unnatural passion for. Normally these cards are those that don't see play anywhere in any format, but you run it sometimes because its either quirky, or snarky, or flashy, or has some personal value to you as a person.

For me, my own pet card is Darklit Gargoyle. It's a white creature with a black ability that works as a souped-up fire-breathing effect that's red in nature. As a mardu player its my favorite 2-drop to include in my decks even though in some games it doesn't do that much more than a normal Storm Crow. Regardless I own more than a couple play sets of the card and my friends by now have already grown quite familiar with the common gargoyle from the Alara block, but they'll never be able to convince me to stop running it otherwise.

What's your pet card and why is it your pet card to you?

StopShot on [Community Discussion]: What makes a ...

The quality of being good is pretty subjective and can't be wrought down to fact unless say one card is strictly better than the other. There's also cards that get deck-listed to no end and I always find them incredibly hyped-up over how "broken" they are to all other cards and they will use their price tag to boot as a way to justify how good they are.

I think the quality of "goodness" of a card is in the eye of the beholder, and though I can find reasoning for some cards to be better it always breaks down to how you use them. Not every deck has to run a staple if they just so happen to run a color. In fact staples can limit creativity and force you to build around them like Tarmogoyf or Delver of Secrets  Flip which I feel makes them bad cards not in the sense of their playability but in their sense of restriction.

Anyone can build a deck however they like and that's perfectly fine. For me I have a pet card I value that I can attest that no one has ever really used or likely wouldn't have heard of and that's Darklit Gargoyle. I know it doesn't compare to what heavy-hitter cards I listed before, but I personally value the card more and think its amazing based on my own judgment. Those are just my thoughts though.

Raging_Squiggle on O-Naginata and creatures with power ...

See that O-Naginata's second ability automatically fulfills its first ability. The +3/+0 it grants will give the creature the minimum power required to stay equipped. All you will need is to have a creature that already has power 3 or greater (either base power or a temporary buff) but once it's equipped, it will stay equipped.

So, when you equip it to your Darklit Gargoyle that has its buff, it'll be a 6/1 until end of turn where it will lose the +2/-1 and become a 4/2 (still getting the +3/+0).

Note also that Darklit Gargoyle's ability is indeed an activated ability, but Plated Geopede's ability is not. It's ability is a triggered ability that triggers whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control.

Suppose I have a Darklit Gargoyle or a Plated Geopede and I activate either of their abilities so they have at least 3 power. Then I equip either of them with O-Naginata since they meet the 3 power requirement. Will this equipment unattach from either creature at the end of my turn when either of the creatures lose their +2 power buff? Thanks for the help!
