Gorgon's Head

Artifact — Equipment

Equipped creature has deathtouch.

Equip {2}

Yesterday on Does deathtouch apply excess noncombat …

7 months ago

I control a Toralf, God of Fury  Flip, and a Ghyrson Starn, Kelermorph equipped with a Gorgon's Head. I deal exactly 1 damage to an opponent's Fortified Rampart, causing Ghyrson to shoot it for 2. The Rampart takes 2 damage from a source with deathtouch, then dies when SBAs are checked. Was that Rampart dealt excess damage, considering only 1 damage would have been sufficient to kill it?

Likewise, I control a Soulflayer with deathtouch and trample. In combat, it gets blocked by the Fortified Rampart. I have the option of assigning only 1 damage to the Rampart and the rest to the defending player, since the 1 damage with deathtouch would be lethal. If I choose to assign 2 damage to the Rampart and 2 to the defensing player, have I dealt excess damage to the Rampart?

I'm currently assuming no to both, but would love to be wrong.

You might like these: Academy Manufactor, Alaundo the Seer, Quicksilver Dagger, Archivist, Oracle's Insight, Gilded Goose, Glittermonger, Tireless Provisioner, Tireless Tracker, Curse of Opulence, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head, Banishing Knack, Retraction Helix

Personally I would cut these to make room for the above: Laurine the Diversion, Narset Parter of Veils, Rampant Growth, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Vengeful Ancestor, Wavebreak Hippocamp, Thought Scour, Harrow, Fact or Fiction, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Ornithopter, Astral Cornucopia, Everflowing Chalice

This is a Rage-Inducing deck that I played a version of once. A few suggestions:

legendofa, I am honestly not sure. We often think of gladiators being combatants, so combat damage makes sense. But so does using weapons at their disposal.

I think leaving it as destroy would be best, because then the player can use various gear and spells, such as Chandra's Ignition or Gorgon's Head + Viridian Longbow

Here is the relevant ruling on Mayhem Devil's Gatherer page:

5/3/2019. If a permanent is sacrificed to pay a cost of a spell or ability, Mayhem Devil’s ability will resolve before that spell or ability. Conversely, if a permanent is sacrificed during the resolution of a spell or ability, that spell or ability will finish resolving before Mayhem Devil’s ability is put onto the stack.

So Mayhem Devil's ability will trigger when you sacrifice the Treasure to add mana to your mana pool, not when you pay the mana to equip the Gorgon's Head.

Let's say i have Mayhem Devil, Gorgon's Head and 1 Treasure token on the battlefield with 1 open red mana.

I want to equip Gorgon's Head on the Mayhem Devil, so i tap red land and sacrifice a tresure for another red mana so i can pay equip cost.

As far as i know, there is going to be 2 abilities on the stack (Equip an equipment and trigger from Mayhem Devil), so i can put the 1 damage trigger ability first on the stack and equip second, so when the 1 damage from [Mayhem Devil] is going to resolve it's going to be already damege with deathtouch.

Am i right with that?

Here ya go:

"Killer Queen," by Queen Marchesa

She keeps her Bloodthirsty Blade next
To her pretty Gorgon's Head
"Let's go Brandon," because
Monarchs don't like presidents
A built-around archenemy
For Atraxa and Arcades
At any time
A combat phase you can't decline
Deathtouch and opulence
Well-versed in rhetoric
Upon her Throne of Empires

She's a killer Queen
Marchesa, Long may she reign
Matriarch in a Court of Grace
Manipulating table plays
All the time

Oooh, Parasitic Impetus
Curses and disturbances
Wanna bite?
To avoid assassination
She moved to the Temple of Silence
In confrontation
She relies on her Sleeper Agents
Met a man from Fiora
Just a general enforcer
Her scheming symmetries all
Lead to her Deadly Designs
Assassins sneak
Roguely through passages (hastily)
For cards she brings Monarch in
deflective but secretly nice?

She's a killer Queen
Marchesa, Long may she reign
Matriarch in a Court of Grace
Manipulating table plays
All the time

Drop of a crown she is always down
To send your ass back to hose-town
Them immediately after you pass
She is the one to tap that ass
And then cast hail... fire (then she attacks you)

She's a killer Queen
Marchesa, Long may she reign
Matriarch in a Court of Grace
Manipulating table plays
All the time
