Always Watching


Non-token creatures you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance.

ACapo18 on Jared Carthalion, True Monarch

1 week ago

EvolutionBaby Yeah, Ajani, the Greathearted is a great passive: plus if they hit Ajani, you retain the monarchy. Always Watching is kinda okay, but better if you had more creatures, and Thraben Watcher is pretty much the same thing. Brave the Sands is a huge one, especially for blockers. Scion of Draco can be expensive at six mana, but very powerful for Jared. Sight of the Scalelords is a buff, but only if Jared is big enough. Those are my top recommendations, but especially Brave the Sands

Stardragon on Your Time has come

TypicalTimmy, TheOfficialCreator and Icbrgr finally got around to updating these cards will list the changes down below as doest up date immediatly

Death-Nothing major just took Timmy's advice and made Soul Reap, Soul Reap 2 instead

Fate- Increased the mana cost and added Vigilance and Fear to the card, as most people fear their fate and fate never stops and is Always Watching and cannot be stopped

Nevermore- made it a three drop and took out the Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip esk effect and added it the Harvest instead

End- Just added a graveyard nuke to the final ability to have keep with the theme

Harvest- Made it a enchantment artifact, changed it's equip cost to also need to to exile two cards from your grave, added the Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip effect from Nevermore on to this card and made it the three Death creatures (Death Fate and Nevermore) aren't hit by it bad effects. and made it an enchantment artifact so the final ability will always go off

Let me know what you think of the changes (the pictures will probably be update the day after this post has benn posted)

CoarselyRefined on Aurelia, Angel Deck

Aegis Angel and Sephara, Sky's Blade go together like peas and carrots.

Akroma, Vision of Ixidor stacks with each new combat.

Angelic Skirmisher likewise sees (and lends) a benefit with an extra combat step.

If you lean into extra combats then I would also suggest getting cards like World at War or Combat Celebrant.

Cards like Always Watching will allow for you to swing and still be able to block. Pair it with Angel's Trumpet to force combat and gobble up your opponent's creatures.

I also like True Conviction to keep your life total up during multiplayer games.

If you care to sneak a non-angel into the mix I like Archetype of Aggression for a trample enabler.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin, Two Combats are Better than One - EDH

2 months ago

If you are running Extra Combats, I highly recommend running Vigilance anthems to ensure that all of your creatures will be untapped and ready to attack in each extra combat. A few to consider:

  • Reconnaissance - the most expensive budget wise, but also protects your creatures.

  • Brave the Sands - One of my favorite budget options. I really like it in my Isshin deck, especially for the extra blocks. I've found that it also helps to make my board "wider" as I rebuild after board wipes.

  • Serra's Blessing

  • Always Watching - A bit more narrow, since it only cares about nontoken creatures.

  • Intangible Virtue - Opposite of Always Watching, since it only cares about token creatures

Aside from helping with Extra Combats, Vigilance anthems are generally helpful for keeping your board solid against crack backs

lespaul977 on All the King's Men (Human Soldier Deck)

Squee_Spirit_Guide, good call on Honor of the Pure. It would be another great anthem card to have alongside Always Watching and Benalish Marshal. Admittedly, I wasn’t 100% sure about Serra's Embrace; I think I wanted it in there more out of nostalgia than anything else, but it does feel like filler compared to everything else I have going on.

I’m definitely going to look into options for replacing Deftblade Elite. With this being a soldier deck, I feel like I’ll need to put in one-drops to replace it so the deck can play fast enough (although White Knight does look pretty sweet). However, I think this deck could benefit from abilities given by larger creatures. What are your thoughts on this?

Thank you very much for the feedback!

Yesterday on Yorion Sky Nomad and Ugin's …

6 months ago

The only time the X in the cost of Ugin's Conjurant 'matters' is when its on the stack. As it enters the battlefield, it refers back to the value of X on the stack to see how many counters it enters with. Once it's on the battlefield, it has no memory of how much X was, and is just a base 0/0 creature with however many +1/+1 counters it has on it.

If it enters the battlefield any other way, like if it's exiled and then returned to the battlefield with Yorion, Sky Nomad, it'll fail to find a positive value for X and will just enter the battlefield as a 0/0 and immediately die due to State-Based Actions (unless you have something else which causes it to not have 0 toughness when it enters, like Always Watching or... Rules Lawyer).
