Bushi Tenderfoot Discussion

Very interesting deck. It looks efficient. QUESTION: how do you get Bushi Tenderfoot to flip? I was thinking of Band Together but maybe it is too difficult, right?

@Dylan Unfortunately Karn was already a planeswalker in the lore, by the time he was trapped in the Mirrodin core so I don't think he can be printed in creature form if it will be based on that time period.

@CasualCucumber That would be nice but the only reason I don't think they will ever print WW commander pre-con is that they will have to basically print all the common and uncommon werewolves from Innistrad too (no incentive to buy anything, somewhat limit upgrades too) and the fact most of those cards are flip cards which at least on paper are a big problem for pre-cons (big eyebrow raiser was this years Legion's Landing  Flip in the challenger deck). Apparently the community for some unfathomable reason didn't like the Kamigawa flip cards either which were at least much easier to print Bushi Tenderfoot . Now if the fall set has werewolf theme in a nordic plane as some people speculate...that might make this option seem a lot more possible :).

I think it would be awful. Every green deck would be the equivalent of Teferi, Temporal Archmage / The Chain Veil combo with Doubling Season . I think a good compromise would be to allow walkers and other cards like the Bushi Tenderfoot cycle that transform into legendary creatures be played as commanders. Apart from lands, for which commander tax has some rules issues, most legends could work. People have already speculated that we might be getting the reverse of the Magic Origins/ Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip flip walkers to represent planeswalkers loosing their spark in the upcoming set.

Dryad Militant in the side? Helps those storm and snapcaster matchups some. Kor Firewalker is nice for burn. Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip is nearly a flat upgrade to Crusader of Odric. Thalia, Guardian of Thraben is a modern staple in creature lists, and should need no explanation. With a more midrange list I would run Militia Bugler or Legion Conquistador, as the card advantage is significant in the midrange mirror-match.

I feel like I'd either want to cut a little lower to the ground or build 'purer' midrange.

Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip, Isamaru, Hound of Konda and Bushi Tenderfoot with Mox Amber seems playable, and suitably low to the ground.

My other thought would be to pack in card advantage and token creation while threatening Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit with Kitchen Finks/.

Leonin Warleader might work well in a W(g) 'go wide' Gavony Township strategy, and access to Loxodon Smiter is nice. Hero of Bladehold is similarly cute. Sigil Captain/Hardened Scales tokens might also be interesting as a tokens list.

Speaking of tokens, consistant token generation is great, but there is also Raise the Alarm and Timely Reinforcements out there.

Militia Bugler/Thraben Inspector/Ghostway might be nice. There are some decent soldier etbs out there.

These are things you may want to consider field enchantments Spear of Heliod, Always Watching , Authority of the Consuls, Glorious Anthem,True Conviction

I also realized you are missing a solid samuari creature card Bushi Tenderfoot

Pethrax on Homo Sapiens

Ok, so here is a list of suggestions, and their reasons:

Bushi Tenderfoot. A 1 drop that if you manage to grow with Thalia's Lieutenant becomes monstrous when flipped, giving another huge threat that demands an answer, diversifying your overall list of major threats.

Bloodlust Inciter. If allowed to live, allows for some disgustingly explosive turns in tandem with Aether Vial.

Dauntless Bodyguard. A good sideboard card that would allow you to protect a large Champion of the Parish or Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

Dragonmaster Outcast. Sideboard, never mainboard, but would give you a great answer to control decks and midrange decks if you are struggling.

Empty-Shrine Kannushi. The Etched Champion of Humans if you have Kitesail Freebooter, Mantis Rider, and Noble Hierarch.

If you were to mainboard any of these, I would suggest taking out Militia Bugler. It's expensive, and while it does draw a card, or at worst get rid of 4 dead draws, its a low impact card compared to the rest of the deck.
