Godo, the One Hit Wonder

Commander / EDH



Sorcery (1)

Enchantment (1)


Godo is honestly one of my favourite commanders. I usually don't play red, but this is my exception. I love the versatility that this deck has. It can go from 0-100 in the matter of attack declaration.

Blade of Selves is this decks next to always go-to. Tutoring 2 equipment a turn is just to good to pass up. And with the new commander deck giving us Hammer of Nazahn? Instant equip solves a lot of problems with the higher costs on cards like Batterskull, but it can do so much more.

One of the easiest routes to go after godo tutors his first equipment, blade of selves;

  1. Swing with Godo equipped with blade of selves, Godo's trigger to untap for a second swing hits the stack.
  2. grab hammer of nazahn and protection (Swiftfoot Boots)
  3. hammer and boots both equip before damage is dealt, and godo untaps.
  4. Swing again. This time grabbing double strike (Fireshrieker) and something to abuse like Bloodforged Battle-Axe. On the first strike of damage, bloodforged makes a copy that will equip to Godo before the second strike. Then the second strike makes two more copies, both equipping.

In one turn, Godo went from a 3/3 with myriad to a 13/3 with indestructible, hexproof, double strike. Not to mention if you hit a player with no blockers, that was 5 on the first swing, 7 on the first strike of the second swing and 9 on the second strike, which adds up to a magical 21. Lethal. Also having Lethal on both other players for your next turn.

The possibilities are endless. To be able to tutor any equipment you need whenever your commander enters makes him very viable. The only downside to Godo is his mana cost. A whopping 6. I run all the fast mana I can to push out my commander as fast as possible. Once he hits board, he tutors whatever it is you need, Protection using any one of the swords (or just hexproof), lifelink if your cutting it close, or if its early enough, blade of selves to go from nothing to lethal.

If you have any questions, comments, or just like the deck, I would be glad to hear it.

I have a more competitive version of godo that runs far less equipment and is made for a faster meta, if you want to check it out.
