Boza on Multiples of Ib Halfheart, Goblin ...

However, that is not exactly true. While they trigger separately, you cannot pay the cost (sacrificing the creature) for both triggers. Also, Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician is legendary so outside of some Sakashima the Impostor or Mirror Gallery shenanigans, it is very hard to do have more than 1 on the field.

However, lets ignore the legendary thing. For example:

1/ You attack with Raging Goblin and it is blocked by Giant Spider . You have 2 Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician on the field.

2/ Both Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician trigger and are put on the stack.

3/ You sacrifice the goblin to satisfy the cost of the first trigger (Note: It is not a may ability, so you are obliged to do so.)

4/ The ability resolves and you deal 4 damage to Giant Spider , killing it in the process.

5/ The second trigger goes off, but there is no longer a creature to sacrifice. The part that says "If you do" in the text is put in there for exactly that reason. The ability will fizzle.

tl;dr - You will only get 4 damage per goblin, even with 2 Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician .

But an enormous Vampiric Leviathan would be bigger than 2/4. Nekusar, the Mindrazer is a 2/4. Giant Spider is also.

I'm thinking Vampiric Dragon size would be fair. Then you'd have to rework the abilities for sure...maybe make the discard ability give +1-/1?

Gidgetimer on New Convoke Wording

I would humbly put forth a fourth possibility:

You appreciate reminder text for what it is, a reminder of what impact the ability has on the game. But you feel that any unneeded information will confuse the point of exactly what the ability does.

I foresee someone on the Q&A before September asking: If my creatures help me cast CONVOKE CARD does that mean that I can't cast it when I don't have creatures? What if I only have 1 creature?

The illustrative text in the reminder only serves to muddle the mixture. Flying (Storm Crow swoops through the air with the greatest of ease. This creature can only be blocked by other creatures with flying or reach) may be flavorful and make it "Easier to grasp the mechanic" as would Reach (Giant Spider can crawl up its web to interact with flying creatures.This creature can block creatures with flying." but the unneeded information just makes it less concise and in a game based on cards doing exactly what they say they do you need to be concise.

Nice looking list. I'm also using Nyx Weaver , after seeing your list I see that I'm going to have to use Nighthowler , his crazy good!

Have you considered Grim Guardian ? with his 1/4 body it can slow down the opponent while you get set up, and with lots of enchantments you'll find him pinging for a fair few damage as well. I started using him as just a place holder but now I use a whole play set.

Kruphix's Insight got me started making this sort of a deck, as filling your hand with enchantments and your graveyard with creatures is win/win. I'm not so sure now tho.. having 2 in my starting hand vs an agro deck hurt, what are your thoughts on it?

Graverobber Spider is a Giant Spider which loves a busy graveyard, his not the best card in the game, I think I just use him because I have a soft spot for Giant Spider and I have only just found Nighthowler , still I think I might like to keep a couple in the deck.

I do have problems getting my big creatures to hit my opponent and have been using Rogue's Passage which I'm not keen on, so maybe I'll add Alpha Authority . do you ever have difficulty's finishing wrapping up a game?

Anyways good luck with the deck! Price
