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

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.

Context- I’m building a Gargos, Vicious Watcher EDH Deck, and I need a bit of clarification on how Veil of Summer / Autumn's Veil interact with their bottom ability. Do those spells trigger that ability? Sorry if this seems like an obvious question, I’m just coming back to the game after a long break and I’m kinda fuzzy on some of these interaction rules, and I just want to make sure of how that works.

This is really great list! Please keep updating.
Some of cards I found missing:
Black Eliminate , Grasp of Darkness , Feed the Swarm - oh yes, black can now destroy enchantments! Blue Ravenform - oh yes, blue can now EXILE ceatures or artifacts! White Angelic Edict , Cleansing Nova , Ondu Inversion Flip, Doomskar Green Viridian Shaman , Thrashing Brontodon . Fight effects of Gargos, Vicious Watcher , Territorial Allosaurus , Primal Might , Ram Through Red Shatterskull Smashing Flip and what about enrage effects from Silverclad Ferocidons or damage from Needletooth Raptor or Burning Sun's Avatar ?

This deck looks dope, great job. May I suggest Sensei's Divining Top or other ways to look at the top cards of your library? Also, See the Unwritten, Bow of Nylea and similar effects seem useful as redundancy for Mayael. Also, Zilortha, Strength Incarnate maybe as another fatty. Also, both Archetype of Endurance and Gargos, Vicious Watcher are useful to protect your creatures. Last, Siege Behemoth, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spearbreaker Behemoth, Thunderfoot Baloth and Terastodon are very useful cards.
Finally, there's Zirda, the Dawnwaker as a little oddball to cheaper Mayael's activated ability.
