Gorgon's Head Discussion

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!

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!

Thanks bradtheimpaler13 and bushido_man96!! Nickosis I like Sword of Kaldra but can't rationalize spending 8 mana for cost/equip when Gorgon's Head costs 3 to cost/equip and acts the same way with exile being the only difference between the two. I aim to be able to eliminate threats faster than my opponent can bring them back from the graveyard.
Hair-Strung Koto and Altar of the Brood are both very interesting choices that I had not thought of. I think at this point those cards would throw off the strategies my deck is going for but I appreciate you bringing those up. Those make me want to make a UB or WUB token mill deck, lol.

There is a little stack of cards in this deck that I would most certainly cut;
Also I'm not a fan of the Equipments and any of the creature-based cards in this deck, as the Izzet guild's strongest point is spells.So cut Teleportal, Assault Strobe, Psychotic Fury, Fury Charm, Curiosity, Pemmin's Aura, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head, Neko-Te, Lightning Greaves...
Also, these cards I don't think fit the deck very well.-Dark Depths.
-Grafdigger's Cage!!! You should NOT play this card. It blocks out Melek and isn't of much use.
The rest of the cutting you'll have to do in the burn package. Hope I helped, please check out my thopter deck:THOPTERS!!!!! .

Hey there tatchison. I like your Alesha deck! She is my main squeeze. So I was wondering how your deck does with mana ramp and creature removal. If you are hurting in those areas, I have a few suggestions.
For removal, I like the fact that you have Fiend Hunter in here. The fact that you can abuse his wording for repeated exile of your opponents creatures is fantastic. If you like him, you can also use Faceless Butcher in the exact same way. Another creature that is great with Alesha is Stingscourger. I am a huge fan of creatures with echo in this build since they kindly kill themselves for reanimation purposes.
For a little bit of ramp, I know they are a little off budget but Sword of the Animist and Solemn Simulacrum are great with her as well. Anything to give Alesha a small little pump is totally worth it.
Two other things. In addition to a little pump, I have added Gorgon's Head to my build in place of Basilisk Collar till I can get one and I love it. I may decide to keep both in, I'm not sure yet. And I don't know what your feelings are on land destruction/theft, but I like Avalanche Riders and Herald of Leshrac to mess with my opponents
