It will be a 40/4, Evra only gets power equal to your life total.

Which does matter, I've seen Narset, Enlightened Master running Electrify for some reason, which seems like a bad choice, but still destroys your Evra, Halcyon Witness even after the switch xD

Sultai_Sir I actually built a commander deck around it for a friend. (Deck for Starbot) It’s one weakness is the first activation. If they can reduce Evra’s power to 0 while it’s on the stack, you lose. Also, if they can remove Evra from the battlefield before it deals damage, you’ll be left at 4 life.

However, if you have a turn with Evra on the battlefield and your opponents tapped out, you can usually get that first activation, and then you’re home free.

Also of note, if she’s ever not blocked, the opponent’s basically dead, since they’re taking a life-total’s-worth of damage, which can be commander damage.

To anyone who’s confused as to why Evra, Halcyon Witness is so powerful, take another look. Yes, she’s a 6 mana 4/4. But her ability doesn’t end once the turn does. Here’s how the game can play out, assuming for the sake of example that you have 20 life:

Activate evra’s ability (power 20, life 4) Hit with evra (power 20, life 24) Hit with evra (power 20, life 44) Activate evra’s ability (power 44, life 20) Hit with evra (power 44, life 64)

Then you just keep switching the power and life every time you attack.

VampDemigod: Evra, Halcyon Witness looks great! Do you run it in anything? It looks powerful with a bunch of equipment, making you basically immortal.

Evra, Halcyon Witness. If you can get one hit off, you’re set up for life. It’s a glass cannon, but it’s a game-breaking one.

Week of 09082020 Combo

Ok so I'm actually really proud of this combo and don't want to forget it so I'm gonna put it in now, like half a week earlier than usual. Maybe I'll even do a bonus one!

Evra, Halcyon Witness + Predatory Urge + Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose or anything with his first line of text.

The way the combo works is first you activate Evra's first ability. I know when I first saw here I thought it just made your life total equal to her power, but it actually exchanges it, so this makes your life equal to her power and her power equal to your life (yes, risky, you die to Lava Axe). Then you enchant her with any fight aura or equip her with any fight equipment (Predatory Urge is the first one I thought of). Now, you have a 20/4 or 40/4 with a fight ability ... and lifelink. This means she now has ": kill target creature, you gain 40 or 20 life." Which, depending on what you want to do in that game, might be enough ... but it's never enough.

Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose comes down.

Now Evra has : Kill target creature. You gain 20/40 life, each opponent loses that much.

Fun combo! Please let me know if there is a fight or "deal damage equal to power" equipment, that would be a really fun EDH deck to build.

Update: I gave him a list of 13 legendary creatures I thought he might like (including the suggested), and asked him which he would most like to build a deck around. He chose Evra, Halcyon Witness, a card I had mostly put in for reminiscing’s sake. So I guess now I’m building an Evra, Halcyon Witness deck for him.
