Gorgon's Head Discussion

Personally, I'm using Quietus Spike and Gorgon's Head for Deathtouch, Chitinous Cloak for Menace, and Spidersilk Net for Reach.

What about using a couple equipment in your deck, talking mostly about Deathtouch equipment, maybe Basilisk Collar or Gorgon Flail/Gorgon's Head and that way if destroyed you can get them back with Glissa.

Sure they are not colored cards, but at least they will be reusable

If this is mostly casual, some stuff like Hunt the Hunter/Setessan Tactics/Ulvenwald Tracker might perform well, Hankyu,Heavy Arbalest, Livewire Lash, Mortarpod, Shuriken, Surestrike Trident and Wolfhunter's Quiver all exist, as does Brass Squire, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head,Vial of Poison which I know has been used for Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile edh.

If this is a more competitive legacy meta, Animate Land for land destruction might be an option as a dumb one-off deck.

All told, good luck and have fun testing! If you're looking for something particular just say.

If you are okay with using Basilisk Collar, would you also be open to using Aspect of Gorgon, Gorgon Flail, or Gorgon's Head to increase your chances for the combo?

I just finished my Vampire deck and I nixed the Olivia Voldaren - Deathtouch combo because I am pretty sure my friends wouldn't want to play with me anymore once I cleared the bored a few times.

Oh sounds good. Yeah I find indestructable really useful, especially if you can get indestructable and deathtouch at the same time. Theres an artifact, Gorgon's Head which is the only one i could find with deathtouch. if only we could play ours against each other!

Thanks Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor!

And yes it is tough, but it's part of the reason I tried to make these decks. I don't want to keep it just under 15$, I want each card to be well, super budget and cheap. I'm very much of the opinion that you can make fun, interesting decks without immediately jumping into the big kid budget pool:P Which generally means foregoing some options that would make more sense. That and forcing yourself outside the Sol Ring/Demonic Tutor in every deck mold is refreshing IMO.

Puppet Strings is in another budget deck I have on here and I somehow completely forgot about it, thank you!

What I went for with this deck was not so much just to punish with minor amounts of damage, but to add things like Fang Skulkin to make the ping damage into -1/-1 counters, or Witch's Mist, Gorgon's Head, Onyx Mage, and other deathtouch/wither/infect givers to give the pingers a way to kill with the lightest amount of damage. The goal is to ping all their creatures down, then whap them to death with Wauki or anything else really until they're dead.

I am a bit light on protection and recurr-and that's mostly just a budget restriction problem(sadly, Mask of Avacyn has been fluctuating, so I haven't been able to keep it in a lot of these decks). I've been toying about adding Endbringer's Revel since it's a cheaper($ wise at least) way to recur, since I can remove enemies so easily I might give it a try.

I like a lot of your suggestions, but almost all of them are too expensive for the deck's budget :(

Remember to upvote if you liked it though!

you can get some activations off grenzo with pinging cards like Cunning SparkmageEndbringerFrostwielderInferno Titan and other cards like that. there's a lot of them out there. also add some more flavor to the mages backing your goblin army; give them deathtouch Gorgon's Head or card draw Rogue's Gloves or just shut them up Neko-Te.

Yea Basilisk Collar is on my list, I will replace Gorgon's Head with it eventually. I have also been thinking about Warp World. The Great Aurora isn't one I have considered but I will definitely keep that in mind. Thanks for the suggestions flluid!
