Brothers Yamazaki make a really good THG deck for commander.

To be fair, if you show up to an EDH game with the two arts of Brothers Yamazaki as your generals, I'll play with you. Because that's just style points right there. If they're the same art, though, GET OUT.

Yeah, you can't have two of the same planeswalker. You have to pick one to hit the graveyard if you were to cast, say, Garruk, Primal Hunter while Garruk, Caller of Beasts is on the field.

The only legendary creatures not affected that much by the rule besides both Niv-Mizzet variants is Brothers Yamazaki . Otherwise, you pick one of the same legendary creature to die.

You can only use one Brothers Yamazaki so basically, it's useless in commander. I would take it out in place of better equipment, like a Batterskull for example.

Also, if you are going to run Mirror Gallery anyway, why only run one of all your creatures, especially ones like Brothers Yamazaki , who thrive on not being alone on the battlefield? I kinda get that your deck isn't probably fine-tuned yet, but I'm sure you can make room to add more of those, even by tossing the Mirror Gallery altogether just to add another Yamazaki and exploit their card text. Sorry for the double post, anyway. Also, Accelerate might seem good, but Fervor might be better, for more mana, it gives a global effect you can keep using. The only reason Accelerate might be considered on-par is maybe because it's something you can use early game, but at the same time, early game you use most of your mana to cast your creatures, and by the time you can cast multiple spells at once, your getting close to where you can consider Fervor . Time Warp could be replaced by Temporal Mastery for the miracle chance, and if you work in a tutor card, so much the better! Blast of Genius is a big gamble for a deck like this, and then you have to decide on the fly if you want maximum pain or just throw a card away for a small burn, so I'd consider removing it altogether. That's about all I got, but thanks for reading, tell me what you think of my suggestions.

Back in college a friend of mine had a really fun Soul Foundry deck that (with the help of Mirror Gallery ) copied things like Brothers Yamazaki , Stangg , Gemini Engine , Keldon Warlord , and Siege-Gang Commander . Price
