Gorgon's Head Discussion

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

Gorgon's Head would probably be the cut I'd advise, as it's a pretty weak card overall, I know the synergy is there, but 3 mana for it's effect is hard to stomach. And as a slow deck, Lightning Helix gives you some valuable cushion.

You're considering cutting WoO or CToD? Personally I think they're both excellent for you, pursuing a value/stall based wincon against creature focused decks. If you don't get your death touch enablers, the walls can help keep you alive against attacking creatures. The chandra supports that grindy win-con. If I were to air a concern though, it might sometimes be hard to cast Chandra. With 22 lands including 12 sac lands, there will be games where you don't hit a 4th.

Hall of the Bandit Lord can be especially potent in voltron decks.

I think you could use a lot more draw. I personally always have 8-10 sources of it in my decks. Rishkar's Expertise, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Elemental Bond, Shamanic Revelation, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Harmonize, etc. are options.

Death touch is especially potent with trample because you only need to assign 1 point of damage to the blocker to allow the rest to spillover. Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head and Quietus Spike (especially this) fit the build and complement the fight mechanic too because now your Elvish Mystic can kill near anything.

Last year I had a voltron Molimo deck with a sub theme of tribal (only) legendary creature that was a blast to play. Loved casting Silvos so hope you have fun here!

hm. I would suggest these cards:4x Basilisk Collar4x Curiosity4x Electrolyze2x Gelectrode4x Gorgon's Head9x Island4x Izzet Staticaster4x Lightning Bolt9x Mountain2x Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind4x Polymorphist's Jest4x Quietus Spike4x Scouring Sands4x Shivan ReefCuriosity and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind combo to deal infinite damage and niz mizzet is a pinger and a card draw engine and curiousity helps you draw cards, the problem with your deck is it needs ur opponents creatures to be small. I would suggest using my list if you can because it is actually reasomably competetive and tons of fun.
