Phelddagrif says "Target opponent creates a 1/1 green Hippo creature token", but Phelddagrif has the ability, so if I used something like Homeward Path or Trostani Discordant, would I be able to take the tokens after I give them?

I have a Phelddagrif deck in the making and I am wondering. What are the win-cons and what cards seem to be a group hug but actually isn't?

Markos of the Band

Legendary Creature - Human Knight

Exalted, Banding, Flanking

When Makius of the Band attacks, all other attacking creatures you control with Exalted and Flanking gain Banding.


So I have a super old Flanking / Banding deck. Creatures with Flanking reduce their blocker's P/T by -1/-1. That means when I swing with a 3/3 Flanker and you block with a 3/3 creature, your creature is reduced down to 2/2.

With Banding, I can now force you to block my entire boardstate all at once, and I decide how your damage is divided up among the permanents I control. This effectively makes me demolish your ability to block me, because since Flanking is a cumulative effect, I can have each creature you control get -1/-1 for each creature I control with Flanking that you are blocking (Which is all of them, since they have Banding).

Suppose I have three creatures with Flanking and they attack in a Band. You must now block all three of them. Say you block with three creatures. Each one of those three creatures is blocking all three of my Flankers. This means that each of your three creatures gets -3/-3.

Effectively, I attack and if you block your guys die to zero toughness. Anyone who survives this immediate downgrade is now subjected to me choosing where your damage is applied.

It's a super complicated deck that is buried somewhere else. I'd have to go looking for it, but it was super fun and annoying to play with.

I'll be nice and not ask you to build a Legendary Banding creature because I recognize that Banding is absolutely hated within the MTG community (As is with Tibalt, whom I adore).

Instead, I'm going to say this: Make a new shiny version of Phelddagrif.

sportcarracer, the Questing Phelddagrif isn't a legendary creature, so the Phelddagrif ends up the Bant group hug commander, also the questing one is more aggressive while the original is less threatening. It also has built-in protection from boardwipes so you don't have to repay the commander tax.

I really like the deck overall! I tried to do something like this, but with Phelddagrif, but it wasn't as good as this one. I might take a few ideas from the deck list if you don't mind!

While you say there is no win condition, I also have a Phelddagrif group hug deck that tries to accelerate everyone as much as possible while making it so I can't be attacked. The win condition of the deck is milling everyone out by making them draw all of their cards. I plan on adding in Barren Glory+Oblivion Ring so my Worldpurge has to possibility to give me the win on my next turn.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest, he is interesting. I have not done too much with group hug. I know Phelddagrif is good but you said you did not want him.
