Gorgon's Head Discussion

Gattison on Marath, Tokens of the Wild

Vraska, Relic Seeker?

Also, Mana Echoes. Combo it with Cathars' Crusade & Marath, Will of the Wild himself.

Intangible Virtue might be your style. Maybe Sigil Captain.

You could replace Terra Ravager, One Dozen Eyes maybe, and Vraska, the Off-Colored One obviously. =P

Oh yeah, and Gorgon's Head is another deathtouch equipment, to pair with your Basilisk Collar. Oh, and Lightning Greaves, but now I'm just reciting staples you probably already know about.

Hope some of that helps! I love Marath, he's one of my favorite commanders. Happy Magic-ing. =D

I reckon giving Tibor and Lumia deathtouch through Gorgon Flail or Gorgon's Head and pinging everything with deathtouch (it counts) and getting a free boardwipe every red spell! I did something similar with Oros, the Avenger and that was a easy win so it would probably work here too 'cause people are reluctant to remove equipment and commanders.

also nice work with the decks!

I think the point of running Swords over Chastise is that Swords is a much faster removal. You're in Legacy, most decks win very quickly. You may never even get the chance to play a Chastise. Swords, while providing your opponent with a bit of health as a minor downside, gets rid of stuff.

Also, if you like Gorgon's Head you're gonna love Basilisk Collar, I suggest that over the head.

I have started my own Olivia deck (still in the early stages) and something I noticed that looks like it will work fun with Olivia's ability is equipment that gives deathtouch. Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, and Gorgon's Head. Neko-Te though not deathtouch can be cool to try out. Archetype of Finality also for deathtouch.

Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood could be another Olivia in the deack; though not as good. But can get big on his own as well.

MagicalHacker on MagicalHacker - List of All Pillow Fort Cards

Snips500, Iona does not have a special effect to stop opponents from attacking you.

Traveler247, in the right deck, yes!

YellaFeva, take a look at the first point under what the list doesn't include.

PvPArthur, Annex only hurts opponents for two life, which is a pretty insignificant deterrent in a commander game. Charisma seems great, but how is it better at warding off attacks than an equipment that gives deathtouch, like Gorgon's Head? Would you consider that a good pillow fort card? Lastly, causing opponents to mill cards is not a good deterrent either, especially with the fact that the majority of decks utilize the graveyard to some degree to recur cards, so milling is most often a good thing.

Note to self: add Phyrexian Obliterator.

TheNocholas: I've already got Gorgon's Head in this list, but Quietus Spike is a new one, I'll have to add it in.

Gorgon's Head, Quietus Spike, Illusionist's Bracers that would be three ways to get death touch and a two for one one either ability.

Basalt Monolith out, Dowsing Dagger  Flip in Im a bit meh about paying 3 for a manaboost next turn, but DD is a solid mana rock when transformed. Should be easy to flip.

Bladed Bracers out, Manriki-Gusari in Manriki gives more utility cast+equip cost the same

Clock of Omens out, Voltaic Key in Feels better value.

Golem-Skin Gauntlets out, Sai of the Shinobi in GSG good buffer, but prefer free equip of SotS

Gorgon's Head out, Darksteel Plate in GH faster as build up, but Plate is a game winner.

Neurok Hoversail out, Deathrender in flying good but cheating out a creature super fun.

Smuggler's Copter out, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in Not that many creatures so crewing could be a problem. Ugin is favourable board wipe and well, just ugin and awesome.

Stitcher's Graft out, Ghostfire Blade in since Ive added more colourless creatures GFB seems good and without untaping downside.

Sigil of Distinction out, Mox Opal in Metalcraft easy for free to cast mana rock

Temple Bell out, Hammer of Nazahn in Hammer frees up mana for casting>drawing more. Bell just draws for everyone once

Torpor Orb out, Elspeth, Knight-Errant in torpor conditional on meta, plus likely someone else will play. EKE provides, chumps, buff and ultimate is basically game ove
