One thing to note however is that you could use something like Shiv's Embrace to grant firebreathing to the Scion of the Ur-Dragon and then turn it into Atarka, World Render

The battlefield becomes molten until the beginning of your next turn. (All lands are Mountains in addition to their other types.)

Until end of turn, all creatures gain ", : This creature deals 2 damage to target creature or player."

Make a Serra's Embrace/Shiv's Embrace for an iconic blue creature.

For your flying woes, maybe Shiv's Embrace and Vampiric Embrace would be decent options. A one sided wrath effect for flyers would be Tumble, and some planeswalker options that put big fliers in play would be Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath and Sarkhan the Mad although those aren't very tribal. If those don't work for you, I would just d more spot removal.

I usually play with a guy at my local TCG store and when he casts a, for example, Shiv's Embrace on a creature with Heroic, he adds one +1/+1 to other creatures with Heroic, that were not the target of the aura enchantment. Is he wrong?

TheRedMage on What counts as "targeting"

1 year ago

Small nitpick - and I hope I am not confusing things here - but it's worth mentioning that while casting an Aura does target, if you manage to put that aura onto the battlefield directly without casting it, it will attach itself to something it could enchant without targeting it. This doesn't target so effects that restrict targeting (like shroud or hexproof) don't stop this process. However if a permanent couldn't be legally enchanted by that aura (for example, because it has protection from it) it still cannot.

Examples of this are:

In all these cases, it doesn't matter that the Aura was in your graveyard and library - it matters that it wasn't cast. For example, if I control Karador, Ghost Chieftain and cast a Gnarled Scarhide from my graveyard for its bestow cost, I am still casting it and as such will need to target the creature I want the Scarhide to end up on.

@Squirrel_of_War, Gaea's Revenge and Siege Behemoth are both quite high cmc creatures. I'm trying to keep the cmc of the creatures below 6 where possible to leave mana open to cast spells on them as soon as they enter the battlefield. Gaea also doesn't have trample so it'd have to be played when an opponent doesn't have any chump blockers available.

@papahiggs, Power Matrix doesn't seem like a good fit. All the creatures already have trample and an extra +1 won't make much difference. First strike might keep my creature alive but most times they have enough toughness to survive anyway. In terms of flying I think Shiv's Embrace would be better fit as it can also be used as a red mana dump. Nantuko Mentor on the other hand would be devastating but falls prey to being easily removed in EDH (I also have a thing against old art cards).
