BIGGER, SMARTER, FASTER, STRONGER. My attempt at building an edh using and abusing Iroas, God of Victory's combat based static abilities.

Iroas, God of Victory's 1st and 2nd abilities, aka Menace ability and suto Dolmen Gate will guide you to victory.

Cyclops Gladiator, attack and kill

Tyrant's Familiar, attack and kill

Basilisk Collar, kill 2 creatures

Infiltration Lens, if they block, draw 4 cards

Sword of Feast and Famine, hard to block

Tectonic Giant, attack and passive draw 2, or deal 3 damage to each opponent.

Grenzo, Havoc Raiser, having your creatures hard to block with menace makes Grenzo's goad ability really good here. Being able to goad your opponents creatures not only helps speed up damage through to your opponents, but it helps free up blockers as well.

Attack and buff your creatures with: Hero of Bladehold, Hero of Oxid Ridge, Nobilis of War, and many more.

Go to combat or attack with these and get other stuff: Victory's Herald, Hero of Bladehold, Helm of the Host, Tyrant's Familiar, Cyclops Gladiator, Firemane Avenger, and Hanweir Garrison  .

Taking advantage of the 2nd ability: Lightmine Field, Powerstone Minefield, and Pyrohemia, and other instant speed damage based board wipe effects like Arcbond, Fault Line, Magmaquake, and Starstorm. Once your creatures are attacking they cant be damaged. This effect last until combat is totally over. So even after combat damage (but still combat phase) you can cast a spell to do damage.

Like what you see, +1.

don't like what you see ? Check out my other deck Selvala, Explored and Returned with tokens

I missed this stuff too: Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran, Hero of Oxid Ridge, and Hero of Bladehold they all buff my creatures when they attack so giving them extra attack phases to attack again, buffs them again. So its "battle cry x2" from the Hero's, and its +4/+0 form Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran on the second attack. Angelic Skirmisher also triggers twice. Not only for my extra combat phases, but my opponents as well. you're all going "duhhh" right, but i knew this too. Didn't realize i have been missing these triggers all the time.
