Death's Presence


Whenever a creature you control dies, put X +1/+1 counters on target creature you control, where X is the power of the creature that died. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

Let's have a look at how the stack piles up, here:

We are in your opponent's main phase, the stack is empty.

They cast Wrath. Nobody responds, so Wrath resolves.

After Wrath has resolved, as state-based actions are checked, we look for abilities that have triggered and see the Death's Presence trigger. Before anyone gets priority, that trigger is put onto the stack (so even. You need to choose a target now (but had not even a chance to cast Yeva). If there isn't a legal target available now, the ability fizzles.

To answer short: You can cast Yeva in response to Death's Presence triggering, but she won't be on the battlefield at the time you have to choose a target for Presence. So no counters for Yeva.

I have Death's Presence and Grizzly Bears on the battlefield. My opponent casts Wrath of God. I have Yeva, Nature's Herald on my hand.

Can I wait until Wrath of God resolves, then play Yeva, Nature's Herald to put the counters from Death's Presence on it?

These kinds of decks usually include cards like Hardened Scales (as mentioned above) along with cards like Experiment One, Pelt Collectorand Yorvo, Lord of Garenbrig. If you're looking to make the deck a bit more competitive, definitely check these out.

As for cutting seven cards, I'd suggest 2x Fang of Shigeki, 2x Death's Presence, 2x Hungering Hydra and one of the Contortionist Troupe.

Here are some other cards that would also help you get value out of your creatures: Stalking Vengeance, Spiteful Prankster, Rage Thrower, Foster, Death's Presence, and Canopy Stalker.

V1.1 - Cannibalizing other decks to flesh mine out


Ashenmoor Liege, Shattergang Brothers, Fell Shepherd, Walker of the Grove, Plague Boiler, Jar of Eyeballs, Vile Requiem, Empty the Pits, Rough / Tumble


Karametra's Acolyte - Green devotion mana dork. Xenagos, God of Revels - Generally great, explosive charges Balefire Dragon - Psuedo-board clear, can pump with Xenagos, God of Revels. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger - Psuedo-rap, board control Bow of Nylea - Attacking death touch tokens are way more threatening, can't chunk block them. Devotion to green. Cultivate - Ramp is good. Ranger's Path - Ramp is still good. Into the Wilds - Semi draw, semi ramp, top of library manipulation. Xenagos, the Reveler - Ramp, tokens, whats not to like? Death's Presence - A bit win more, but re-using the stats from stacked tokens can be great.

Hi my opponent has 3 creatures in play, one is enchanted with [journey to eternity]], I board wipe, does the enchanted creature come back and get the counters from the other two dying off the Death's Presence or not? I thought No because they all die when the trigger goes to resolve

This is a cool concept deck.

Simple tweaks - Rush of Blood is extra copies of Unleash Fury, Wine of Blood and Iron also works.

I feel like the easist method would be to get to 18 and boost twice - the simplest would be +3/+0 from the ability and then double power, costing 13 mana total, or 6 1 turn and 7 the next. Alternatively, ifninite red mana instant wins with the dragon or a way to search for it.

Shuko points to Golem-Skin Gauntlets/Cranial Plating/Nettlecyst. By pairing it with p/t boosts you could have a more reliable threat that happens to combo off if you get it perfect, but it doesn't feel as efficient even if its more reliable. The artifacts theme might be sweet if its paired with treasure tokens or Pentad Prism type effects to power the combo, but it would need some sacrifice effects to make sure you could get back under 20 power in a pinch.

Speaking personally, I'd go for a casual G/R list, with Xenagos, God of Revels/Exponential Growth/Soul's Might and a +1/+1 counters theme with Death's Presence and 'sac for red' creatures like Satyr Hedonist. Its a cool idea for a casual table. Drumhunter is neat.

A second creature that has a cool 'hit big power' ability would be nice - Mossbridge Troll is neat - I might theme around Bloodshot Trainee and Greenhilt Trainee. Minion of the Mighty is a cute intended synergy.
