Gorgon's Head Discussion

UnleashedHavok on Alesha Budget EDH

3 days ago

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

DeepbloodEclipse on Abzan Deathtouch

I played once a similar deck to this, but used W/B/R. I utilized Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile, Cunning Sparkmage, Stun Sniper or Vulshok Sorcerer in combination with a deathtouch enchantment or artfiact like Aspect of Gorgon, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head or Quietus Spike. The results were...very amusing.

Panas on Olivia's Masquerade!

Hello and welcome to the commander format! Your deck looks nice and it's a good starting point for a vampire themed deck. The one question you need to answer before we can give you better suggestions, is what are the goals of the deck? Where do you it going? Is it aggro or is it control, tribal or not etc.

That said I'll do my best to give some suggestions that are both on theme and rather good cards, while also taking budget into consideration. Here goes:

Olivia Voldaren is a commander who favours control and rewards having large amounts of mana. Her first ability pings creatures and makes her grow. Cards like Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head and Quietus Spike enable her to clean the board clean, 2 mana at a time for a huge swing.

Her second ability steals vampires for 5 man; 7 if you need to convert it before hand. A card like Crypt Ghast, or the more on-theme Nirkana Revenant can work wonders. Doubling your black mana is no joke, especially if you invest in getting Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Some of the best vampires, albeit not the most regal of the lot, come from the original zendikar. Malakir Bloodwitch is a powerhouse!!! Anowon, the Ruin Sage is another one.I see you have Sanguine Bond in the deck. Why not include Blood Tribute as well? With bond and vampires in play, tribute translates to target opponent loses the game.

One extra addition you could consider, Captivating Vampire can complement Olivia's ability.

Sorry for the long post. Hope it was a little bit insightful. Also, don't forget to answer the questions from early on. What do you want the deck to be? How do you like to play with it? What is your budget and how strong is the power level of your local playgroup (fun/casual Vs cutthroat)? Once these are clarified, the community will be able to help you a lot more. Lastly, try advertising your deck here: Advertise your commander deck.

instead of Gorgon's Head you can use Basilisk Collar. It is the same but has lifelink for a few life while pinging creatures.

What about giving Tims deathtouch?

Goblin Sharpshooter becomes a machine gun with things like Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head, Quietus Spike

Tarfire isn't great, even with Wort bringing it back, but Warren Weirding and Fodder Launch definitely are.

Were you aware that Kiki Jiki and Lightning Crafter go infinite with Skirk Prospector? An Ashnod's Altar works too. Thornbite Staff equipped on Krenko goes infinite with a sacrifice outlet as well. Not sure if that flies with your play group but there it is.

Goblin Sharpshooter with Basilisk Collar, Quietus Spike, Gorgon's Head, or Gorgon Flail wipes the whole board.

I love Arms Dealer but it's underwhelming in EDH.

Massive Raid, Goblin War Strike, Dogpile, and Gempalm Incinerator can be good but I find that if you have enough goblins to do something serious with them then why not just attack? I do find Burn at the Stake and Pack's Disdain useful. If you really need something removed then you can use targeted removal spells or Goblin Bombardment.

If you're going to run Brightstone Ritual than you should run Battle Hymn too. Great for pumping Goblin Offensive and Grenzo!
