Brothers Yamazaki Discussion

I believe you can't use both Brothers Yamazaki, since it affects the singleton rule. His ability don't let you use any number of permanents with a same name, like Relentless Rats.

Other than that, deck seems pretty nice. Have your considered Mentor of the Meek or Phyrexian Arena for card advantage?

Just a heads up, you can't run 2 Brothers Yamazaki in your average EDH deck.

I like a lot of your tech though, might borrow some for my own Saskia deck.

I can see the value of the Lancers. The question becomes what needs to come out? Maybe the Brothers Yamazaki?

You can only have one, unless you have out Mirror Gallery or the card says otherwise (Brothers Yamazaki)

From the Comprehensive Rules:

704.5k If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners graveyards. This is called the legend rule.

Deruvid, Yeah, no. I've seen working Brothers Yamazaki decks. There are actually enough copy effects in red to keep him active for a decent portion of the game.

Brothers Yamazaki works with Blade of Selves in a three player game. Which is kinda cute.

I would like to submit the Brothers Yamazaki. Even if their text says two can be on the field, it doesn't negate the singleton rule of deck construction. So you get a 2/1 Bushido 1 for 3 mana. Sure it's a cheap commander but it's not adding much to your deck.
