I like this. Iwamori is one of those commanders that I have considered building a dozen times, but still never did because I didn't like resulting list. Yours looks very cool, I like the route you've taken. You should consider some ways to make your Saitama indestructible: Spearbreaker Behemoth , Hammer of Nazahn or something similar. Also, how about Gargos, Vicious Watcher as additional removal off of each Aura and fight spell? Bow of Nylea is a great value card that makes your attacks so much better. Vigor and Rite of Passage are awesome for fight decks. Klothys's Design can be quite a house in a deck with big creatures. And then, there is Return of the Wildspeaker . Oh, and I forgot Karametra's Acolyte and Grunn, the Lonely King .

This looks really impressive, great deck! It's a shame Uril is 15 bucks, otherwise I'd really like to build around him.

A card I can suggest that I included in my Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is Gargos, Vicious Watcher . He's somewgat of an echantress itself in that it can kill a creature whenever you enchant any of your creautures.

cak01vej I'm not sure if you've seen Gargos, Vicious Watcher but theres at least a legendary hydra lord

Hydra Broodmother

Creature - Hydra

Hydra Broodmother enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters on it.

Whenever a +1/+1 counter is placed on another hydra you control for the first time each turn, put a +1/+1 counter on each other hydra you control.


I felt like the other closest thing we got to a hydra lord is Wildwood Scourge which was good because it gave me a good reference to make but unfortunately i also had to nerf it to only the first time each turn so it wouldn't go infinite.

aznb01777: When that comment was written, I had a Spore Frog in here, but I dropped it recently. I don't feel comfortable including Meren in here, as there are no other ways to get Experience counters, so she'll be pretty underwhelming very often. Thanks a lot for the comment still, I always like having to think about suggestions and defending my position regarding them.

Gleeock: Thanks for the kind words. Regarding spot removal, I recently added Gargos, Vicious Watcher as a pseudo-protection. Dawnglade Regent seems terrific in here, as many times, my opponents won't be able to take the monarch from me. Thanks for that suggestion.

Gargos, Vicious Watcher 's ability multiple times, and will resolve one at a time. After it fights the second creature, it will die and won't be around to fight the third.

Been trying to build a Gargos, Vicious Watcher EDH Deck recently, and I’m a little confused on how his second ability’s trigger would work. For example, if I casted a spell that targeted 3 of my creatures, and there were 3 4/4 creatures my opponents controlled that I wanted to hit, would I be able to kill all of those (would the 3 fights all take place at the same time), or would Gargos die before the third one (the fights take place one after another, so I’m only able to kill 2 before Gargos dies)? Thanks for any clarification. Coming back to MTG after a while away, a bit fuzzy with some of the rulings like this

Neotrup on Does Veil of Summer count …

8 months ago

Veil of Summer and Autumn's Veil don't target. Spells and abilities only target if they use the word target (which Autumn's Veil does, but it doesn't tell you what to target, rather it says that things can't be the target). That said, you'll typically cast these spells in response to your opponent targeting one of your creatures. You're opponent's spell will still trigger Gargos, Vicious Watcher allowing it to fight a creature, and you can use your Veil to 'fizzle' their spell by making the target illegal.
