Aspect of Gorgon is a new common black aura card from Wizards of the Coast's expert "Magic: The Gathering" expansion set "Journey Into Nyx."

Aspect of Gorgon - 2B
Enchantment - Aura (Common)
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature gets +1/+3 and has deathtouch. (Any amount of damage it deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)
"My adopted children are loved no less."
-Pharika, god of affliction

Featured in the "Pantheon's Power" Intro Pack, Aspect of Gorgon transforms any of your mundane creatures into a mighty blocker to be feared. One of our favorite targets is Nyx-Fleece Ram. Your opponent will have an incredibly tough time dealing with your 1/8 deathtouch defender unless they're holding a removal spell. That otherwise mundane Rotted Hulk you last picked in draft looks a lot more deadly.

As an enchantment, Apsect of Gorgon shines in a deck revolving around constellation creatures, allowing you to reap the benefits from Harvestguard Alseids, Underworld Coinsmith, Grim Guardian, Doomwake Giant, Dreadbringer Lampads, and Thoughtrender Lamia.

How will you use Apsect of Gorgon?
