Brothers Yamazaki Discussion

TheRedMage on A First Look: What is ...

Most cubes I have seen are, but it's not a hard and fast rule. Even one of the MTGO cubes is not strictly singleton (the Legendary Cube has both copies of Brothers Yamazaki).

In the end your cube is your own draft set and you can pretty much do what you want with it. I would agree that if you are doing a FRF cube it might be a good idea to include multiple copies of the commons in the set.

adamwasmo Yes.

TheHelvault After looking over your deck list I realize that the only creatures you included were the couples. I didn't make this really clear, but you can also include two sided cards like Akki Lavarunner. I'll change the rules to where you can also include only 2 copies of Brothers Yamazaki Thanks for making a deck list anyways! Yours is fine!

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!

irisfibers on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

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.
