Gorgon's Head Discussion

Mr.Beaver on More Refined Deathtouch Pingers (Needs Help)

A commander deck needs to be 100 cards (including your commander) so we should try to find some cards to cut. Lobe Lobber is an obvious first choice since it's not legal in EDH. I think you could also cut some enchantments and artifacts since your commander already gives your creatures deathtouch. Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head, Gift of Doom, Archetype of Finality are all probably good places to start. Playtesting should also be able to help you find which cards don't come up often/just can't be played. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Phage the Untouchable, Magus of the Wheel, Wurmcoil Engine, and Xathrid Gorgon are all good cards but might not be useful in this specific deck. I'll try doing some playtests too, but I think getting to 100 should be your top priority for now. Commander is a tricky format to build for, but your definitely on the right track! :)

Basilisk Collar and maybe Gorgon's Head would be nice in a Toggo deck, giving the creatures equipped with rocks the ability to one-shot snipe any creature on board. They both synergize with the deck's equipment theme, too.

Viridian Longbow, Death Pits of Rath, Gorgon's Head, and Gorgon Flail will add a good bit of shenanigans with a side of salt =D

Random thoughts: Basilisk Collar/Gorgon's Head/ways to give deathtouch to pingers. Thornbite Staff to untap dudes. Kelsien, the Plague because he's cool.

Any reason you're playing Gorgon's Head and not Basilisk Collar?

Also, Idol of Oblivion seems like a noticeable exclude.

Other than that, the deck looks good and a blast to play!

I have a similar deck and can sympathize with how hard the deck is to play test. It just relies so much on what your opponents do. I can't wait until things open up again and we can play in-person.

Rdean14, the Cautious

Legendary Creature - Human Advisor

Whenever one or more creature attacks, exile Rdean14, the Cautious, then return that card to the battlefield under your control.

Whenever you or Rdean14, the Cautious becomes the target of a spell or ability, you may choose new targets for that spell or ability.

1/1


I'm an exceedingly cautious person. People who know me either think I'm very well prepared or think I'm pessimistic. Many think both. I don't like committing to anything without a solid backup plan. At work I'm known as the 'CYA' guy for my propensity to document everything and very closely follow corporate policy. I'm a Slytherin, by Hogwarts house, and basically, I'm rather persuasive (like I've come up with a sizable chunk of the local policy for my job, e.g.) and highly interested in self-preservation. Like, 100% my #1 priority, no doubt about it. I firmly believe the best way to keep a job is to formulate enough policy and make yourself integral enough that the company wouldn't want to fire you.


Anyways, Let's see a common non-weapon, non-shield/armor equipment.

In standard, Wolfrider's Saddle, Crystal Slipper, Mantle of Tides, Mask of Immolation, and Wings of Hubris.

Other famous ones include Whispersilk Cloak, Swiftfoot Boots, Skullclamp, and Infiltration Lens.

Helms, Saws, Hammers wouldn't count for this. Spidersilk Net seems like a weapon, so like, not really at all weapons or armor. Although Maybe just insanely creative weapons like Gorgon's Head would be cool, not really the goal, but still super cool.

Siren Song Lyre is like the epitome of this challenge, like certainly an equipment, but not like clothing or weapon. Clothing is cool though, to be clear.
