Creature — Elemental Incarnation


If damage would be dealt to another creature you control, prevent that damage. Put a +1/+1 counter on that creature for each 1 damage prevented this way.

When Vigor is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Idk if it works at your power level but Vigor would be decent

I would replace the Obsidian Battle-Axe with something that provides First Strike on your deathtouchers.

Wrap in Vigor and Vigor , maybe Vhati il-Dal to keep your guys alive

Blessing of Leeches on Virtus is terrifying

     MLS91: Indeed! Lightmine Field + Vigor is pretty dope, however the whole purpose of this deck is to make my creatures take damage, so Vigor is definitely out of the question haha.

     I hate to say I don't think Lightmine Field will make the cut either, but I don't think it will. Simply synergizing with a couple/few cards in the build doesn't make it worthwhile IMO (especially considering creatures like Brash Taunter & Stuffy Doll are better blockers and seldom attack). I'm not sure that they're a permanent fixture, but the Vow Auras are considerably more versatile, and would definitely be a Non-Bo with Lightmine Field . While Lightmine Field can certainly be good, it's never going to help this deck win a game that it's not already winning (save maybe against token-gen decks). You could maybe say the same about the Vows, but they can definitely stop you from losing a game you're about to lose.

     You made a good case for it, though! =)

if you'd like to counter the effect of light mine field in a really sideways (funny cause you swing all out) you can forgo the enrage synergy and add in a Vigor , instantly pump your board with the Lightmine Field making it more of an asymmetrical effect then symmetrical.

you could still utilize your enrage creatures up until you play vigor, only because vigor is a replacement effect

If you can't get off the ground as fast as you want you need to have a way to slow the game down or to block damage while you build up. You've seen me do this in half my decks. Bubble Matrix or Vigor means anybody can block. Spidersilk Armor . Silent Arbiter would be good, you build up guys and tap, who cares if you attack?

Hey came here to get some inspiration for my own sachi deck (I want to upgrade it from my budget to a slightly better deck), so I'll definitely put in that winter orb :)

My suggestion for your deck would be Jade Mage and Helix Pinnacle and depending on your playgroup a Sandwurm Convergence . Vigor is just a creature deck super star Imo.

Some good lands are Castle Garenbrig , Mosswort Bridge and Bala Ged Sanctuary

I love Gargos in my Siona list. A card that is great with it is Rancor . Also, with Gatherer of Graces , you can easily remove multiple creatures. And just imagine adding Vigor into this. Gargos would become immense.

First off, I think the idea is fun. Second, Vigor, Palisade Giant, and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are cool with Hans.

I'm working on a naya toughness deck that has Hans in the 99, so I figured I would share a few tricks I found.
