EDH Deck Time: Virtus + Gorm

The idea here is pretty obvious. Gorm acts as the Tank while Virtus makes the kill.

Virtus the VeiledGorm the Great

Since the images don’t show yet, here’s the text:

Virtus the Veiled
2B
Legendary Creature – Azra Assassin
Partner with Gorm the Great (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Gorm into their hand from their library, then shuffle)

Deathtouch

Whenever Virtus the Veiled deals combat damage to a player, that player loses half their life, rounded up.
1/1

Gorm the Great
3G
Legendary Creature – Giant Warrior
Partner with Virtus the Veiled (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Virtus into their hand from their library, then shuffle)

Vigilance

Gorm the Great must be blocked if able, and Gorm must be blocked by two or more creature if able.
2/7

What can we do with this?

EDH Deck Time: Zndrsplt + Okaun

This guy…

Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom
4U
Legendary Creature – Homunculus
Partner with Okaun, Eye of Chaos (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Okaun into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)

At the beginning of combat on your turn, flip a coin until you lose a flip.

Whenever a player wins a coin flip, draw a card.

1/4

… is apparently the best friend of this guy:

Okaun, Eye of Chaos
4R
Legendary Creature – Cyclops Berserker
Partner with Zndrsplt, Eye of Wisdom (When this creature enters the battlefield, target player may put Zndrsplt into their hand from their library, then shuffle.)

At the beginning of combat on your turn, flip a coin until you lose a flip.

Whenever a player wins a coin flip, double Okaun’s power and toughness until end of turn.

3/3

EDH Deck Time: Yargle

Yargle, Glutton of Urborg is an interesting case. MaRo has communicated to us that it’s more or less a joke. Something they put in Dominaria just to have vanilla legend in there.

However, it is quite unique. How many legendary creatures with such a high power with that mana do you have? Actually, only one bests our little frog spirit: Lord of Tresserhorn

EDH Deck Time: Naban

My favorite tribe: Wizards. Not very supported one in general, but here’s one:

Naban, Dean of Iteration
1U
Legendary Creature — Human Wizard
2/1
If a Wizard entering the battlefield under your control causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.

B, Reveal Tetzimoc, Death Primordial from your hand: Put a “Prey” counter on target creature. Only activate this ability during your turn.

When Tetzimoc, Death Primordial enters the battlefield, destroy all creatures with a “Prey” counter on them.
