Brothers Yamazaki Discussion

Ah. I wasn't meaning to bash Willbreaker, merely use it as an example since it's newly printed and not obscure. In fact, I like it and run it in my Reveka Commander deck Tolarian Firing Squad!

I think that Brothers Yamazaki is neat (I have a foil copy of each brother), and to my knowledge, it's the only card ever printed that allows itself to break the Legend rule under specific conditions. Mirror Gallery is also a neat card, but you already have it on the list.

I'll add everything except Brothers Yamazaki for now, while they are certainly unique I've always thought that they were simply not good enough to be worth building around. So that is still up for discussion.

I guess there are a lot of people who don't know Illusionary Mask, so it's added.

Druidic Satchel is added because I think there are not a few people who don't know it, or at least don't play it.

Also, the reason why Willbreaker is in this list is because it is very interesting and I still haven't seen a deck that actually uses it.

Very cool deck idea! I think I'll have to build a casual version of it, since I have most of the cards for it and there's so many staple casual cards that work and are 50-cent rares. (Things like Tajic, Blade of the Legion, Anafenza and Brothers Yamazaki, which work very well with the Alesha/Hero's Blade synergy for cheap)

Good luck to you and your deck!

So looking through Tier 5 I feel like Brothers Yamazaki, Chisei, Heart of Oceans, Daughter of Autumn, Phage the Untouchable and Yukora, the Prisoner should all be moved to tier 6. My basis for saying this is that their abilities are not possible to activate like Yamazaki or they are actually detrimental to play like Yukora (a one sided wrath to you?)... Or Phage, there's only one card to get her out of the command zone that I know of, otherwise you can even cast her.

Also, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker should be moved to tier 4. He's not amazing but he's not unplayable either. Mill is a very difficult strategy in commander to execute but his ability is way more powerful than other mill commanders like Szadek, Lord of Secrets (simply because szadek will get removed immediately if he gets big) but less so than Oona, Queen of the Fae.

Brothers Yamazaki is by far the best option.Fumiko the Lowblood has potential with the right support cards such as Takeno, Samurai General. Ronin Houndmaster is essentially Kitsune Blademaster with ability swap, you'd have to decide if first strike or haste is more important to you. Red would really only provide Lightning Bolt outside of that, so you'd have to decide if running a splash of red is worth the extra effort in your land base as well.

I just love the Kamigawa block, specially the samurais! I still have the samurai deck from kamigawa..always wanted to build a good boros samurais. Do you think this deck could be good with red? For Brothers Yamazaki, Fumiko the Lowblood, Iizuka the Ruthless, Ronin Houndmaster, even Battle-Mad Ronin.

I have my own Samurai Glory. Why no 4th Brothers Yamazaki? A lot of my suggestions are already there lol but what about Inner-Chamber Guard? Most samurai in your deck should stay in the 1-3 mana range. Nagao, Bound by Honor and Takeno, Samurai General would be my only personal exceptions. Mothrider Samurai is ok if you need more fliers, Indebted Samurai is good but slow and unfortunately is anti-synergy with Samurai of the Pale Curtain
