Timmy's big brother. Vigor+Scourge of Kher Ridges can make him grow fast. Not only +12, but +4 each turn.

Very powerful, because it counts for your opponents creatures too. If they have nothing strong enough to kill this when it comes out, their only hope is kill spells and buff spells because every time they play a creature it gets that much stronger.

LOVE this guy in my Mayael EDH deck...but he almost never gets to attack while beefed up (usually more than a 20/20 in the format) because he is always the first target of removal when beefy, even if I have cards such as Godsire and Vigor on the battlefield.

Combo with Admonition Angel to make your opponents have a tough choice.

@ PKleck:

Mayael's Aria

I love this guy. I have him in my Mayael EDH deck as well, but I also run him in my 60 card Giants deck. He gets massive really fast, and with Sunrise Sovereign in play, he can trample.

You got to rite of replicate him.

The five goliaths will etb as 6/6 guys and each of them will see the four others etb, so you have 20 abilities on the stack, plus the original one seeing 5 others etb, so 25 abilities. The fun part is that they won't see just some 6/6 entering play, because they will be buffed already by the counters when most abilities resolve, and thus grow exponentionally.

Giant number 1 sees one giant number 3 etb, so it gets six counters, becoming 12/12.
Giant number 4 sees giant number 1 etb. Giant number 1 is now 12/12, so giant number 4 is now 18/18. Giant number 1 also sees giant number 4 etb. Giant number 4 is now 18/18, so giant number 1 get's an additional 18 counters, becoming 30/30.
Giant number 2 sees also Giant number 1 etb. Giant number 1 is 30/30, so Giant number 2 becomes 36/36.
Giant number 3 sees Giant number 2 enter play, and becomes 42/42.
Giant number 1 also sees Giant number 2 enter play, and becomes 72/72:

... (see all)

wouldn't dropping a phyrexian dreadnought and letting said dreadnought die cause him to turn into an 8 mana 18/18?

Him, Borderland Behemoth, and Sunrise Sovereign are the big boys of any Giant Deck. I love how it checks for the power of a creature when it resolves. BB adds a LOT of power to Hamletback when he comes out.

Put an Elemental Mastery on him and the games in the bag.
