Legendary Artifact — Equipment

At the beginning of combat on your turn, create a token that's a copy of equipped creature, except the token isn't legendary if equipped creature is legendary. That token gains haste.

Where did put that brew...oh wait it's right here


Not updated or anything but this is what I came up with when it came out. Helm of the Host does some spicy things if you don't feel like taking a look :)

That awkward moment when you realize Godo does not immediately equip Helm of the Host when ETB.

What are some "plan B" strategies people use in case Helm is destroyed before Godo gets to equip it?

I am aware of Panharmonicon and getting Hammer of Nazahn first before Helm or having a Brass Squire ....but again....let's assume the worst. Combos like Twinflame and Dualcaster Mage don't seem fast enough....

Nice deck. I think that cards that copy the commander would work well in this.

Cards like this may work best because they trigger the legendary rule:

when the copy enters, you immediatly sacrifice it for the legendary rule and trigger its ability. So with Blade of Selves you will get to trigger the commander's ability 2 times each time it attacks, while also tapping down blockers.

The issue with Helm of the Host is that it removes the legendary, so it wont immediatly trigger the commanders ability. Though, extra copies of the commander never hurts if you have the mana to equip the helm

I saw your thread regarding a win con. I have no actual idea regarding this, unfortunately. But have you considered Irencrag Feat ? I realize it produces some very weird turns where you would't want to attack with Velo, but there's no easier way to get that much mana with one spell. Jeska's Will and Seething Song could do similar things for you.

After finishing the post, I had an idea for a win con: Helm of the Host seems pretty powerful if you manage to get multiple combat phases, which is a thing I imagine the deck to be able to. It would even go infinite with Aurelia, and even without her, getting one or additional Velos per turn seems fine. In that vein, Rionya, Fire Dancer could be cool.

Hey, well done for being new with your $400 version of Twincasters.

Some cards to consider adding and then I'll explain these suggestions:

Tireless Provisioner is a good ramp source with repeatable Treasures. Whir of Invention is powerful to tutor for Helm of the Host at instant speed, puts it onto the battlefield and Clues/Treasures can help to pay for the colorless part of it's cost with improvise. Solve the Equation can tutor for Whirl.

Biovisionary is a creature you want to make a token of because having four Bois can be a win condition at your end step. Bio is really good with Mystic Reflection and Echoing Equation . Risen Reef is another creature you want to make a token of because each token triggers itself as well as all other copies of Risen. Junk Winder can shut down all your opponents nonland permanents, any tokens help to reduce it's mana cost to as low as two mana and if you get to make a token copy of it then the disruption gets crazy.

Here's some suggestions of cuts to consider to add the good cards in the maybeboard.

Good luck with your deck.

So I have Helm of the Host on Brago, King Eternal , and I got to combat, get a second Brago, then deal combat damage to an opponent with both of them. Is it correct that I get to trigger the first Brago, flicker a bunch of permanents, then trigger the second Brago and flicker some/all of them again? I'm assuming so, but I need to confirm. Thanks in advance! :)

Some of your planes walkers are pretty good but some are not the best. Nissa natures artisan is just not a good planeswalker in this deck. Might i suggest some Nissa, Who Shakes the World , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger to name a few. They all go great with the double counter or double token with vorinclex.

For lands green has tons of good utility lands that can benefit from counter and token doubling. Oran-Rief, the Vastwood , Blast Zone , Khalni Garden , Llanowar Reborn , Field of the Dead to name a few. And green also has tons of land tutors to find these lands when you want them.

when when you're not getting planeswalkers going you can always go for the classic Rampaging Baloths , Helm of the Host to go crazy, Myr Battlesphere , Tendershoot Dryad , Mycoloth , Bane of Progress , Vigor . You can really just go crazy with tokens and counters here my guy
