Fumiko the Lowblood Discussion

Give this episode of EDHRECast a listen. It's all about 75% decks with a focus on the creator of the site's Xantcha deck.
As for specifics for your deck, the first card I would include Koskun Falls . It's the only Ghostly Prison effect in black, and it will help you defend. Well, there's also No Mercy , so give that a whirl, as well.
Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are interesting tech. I've never seen those cards before! If your goal is just to make Xantcha unblockable, though, Cover of Darkness is much cheaper (gotta love old cards that effect other people's creatures!), and I doubt you'll get much blowback from other Minions on the table.
I also see a Nekusar, the Mindrazer kind of thing going on. You'll probably want some wheels to supplement that strategy. A few good budget ones are Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , and Reforge the Soul .
As for cuts, Cabal Stronghold is pretty iffy in a deck running 11 Basic Swamps. Temple of the False God is awful. You're effectively running 35 lands, because Temple is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. I honestly despise this card. Run Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive , instead, and add in a couple more lands. I would put in some budget fixing lands, such as Rakdos Carnarium and Tainted Peak . I don't like Bubbling Muck much. You're not running that many swamps, so something like Mana Geyser would be much more effective if you need big mana. I'm also not really sure what Harmless Offering is doing in this deck.
Those are just my initial impressions. I'd also check out the Xantcha page at EDHREC to see how others are building. You can click the budget tab in the top right to help stay under $150! Good luck!

I love the art and mechanics of Queen Marchesa. If I had ever picked up a copy of her, I would have probably built her with Fumiko the Lowblood and Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs in the deck. I might use Grab the Reins, too.
Any consideration for them?
Oh man, you’re making me want to spend money just before my car’s regular service interval! Nice deck!

Plahbie I never thought about using gideons intervention or nevermore like that and oh my god that is so deliciously evil haha. Great way to shut down a combo deck that relies on it's commander especially in non w/g colors (ie mizzix or jhoira).
As for curse of nightly hunt, there are probably just better ways to invoke the same effect. Fumiko the Lowblood gives you the effect, asymmetrically globally and gives you a potentially strong blocker if people decide to start sending things your way. Goblin Spymaster is another that is asymmetrically global as well, for the same CMC as curse of nightly hunt. The only benefit of the curse is that it's not removed by a board wipe and there's not that much incentive to remove it since it doesn't really prove to be a major threat in most cases. If you really want to get oppressive War's Toll is a fantastic one too (probably the best of the bunch, but it will draw IMMEDIATE hate from the table which is generally not what an aikido strategy is looking to do).

I cannot wait to see the chaos unfold!
Here are a few quick suggestions; take'em or leave'em:
Where is Windgrace's Judgment and Decimate! I know you want to give people toys, but having some answers may be needed. Maybe remove a couple enchantments like - Trespasser's Curse and/or Titania's Song

IMO, with a good amount of playtesting you don't need quite as much redundant "force attack" creatures... hard to say. I usually focus on populating my opponents with little pingers or laying down groupslug stuff early on, then drop Thantis once the field has been populated. I have found that it is not such a bad thing to let them rush at you with a mid-level swing wide approach, either your crackback is going to massive... or a token/overrun strategy is so out-of-hand that you are already going to lose anyway. I think Grand Melee, Goblin Diplomats, Fumiko the Lowblood are all redundant.
LIFELINK tested better for me than deathtouch! My reason for this: having a giant spider kills enemies just as dead as deathtouch. Evasion? I'm not that worried about evasion unless the majority of my opponent's field is vigilant (happened once) In which case it was a war of attrition where my slug enchantments went to work. That being said: Bow of Nylea is low CMC & a swiss army knife of abilities. Poison-Tip Archer life-loss ability is still sweet. Whip of Erebos does SERIOUS WORK, gives limited recursion someone mentioned above. I forced a bunch of 1/1's to attack me (blocked one with Thantis) and GAINED life due to Thantis growing before combat dmg was assessed, then I crackbacked for massive lifegain... also toying with Loxodon Warhammer for this purpose.
I don't tend to use much "dictate" effects because my strategy pretty much assures that they have an ample supply of weenies to sac anyway & I want those weenies to go to work popping dmg through on tapped-out opponents, not durdling around with sac-all day slowdown stuff. In effect, 4:7 games I have populated opponents with creatures, played small nuisance groupslug enchantments, somebody predictably controls the field with creature-based boardwipes, I enjoy my incremental dmg enchantments going to work on an empty battlefield.
My deck may have some decent ideas (although the idea behind it is MINIMAL CONTROL, which alot of people are uncomfortable with).

+1 for the Vagabond reference as well as a unique and interesting commander choice for a Voltron strategy. My Toshiro Umezawa deck is also thematically very inspired by Vagabond for the flavor wins. Well done!
I'd like to see what concept you have in mind for Fumiko the Lowblood. I'd be more than happy to collaborate and help out with your deck building. It looks like you're well on your way to having a samurai commander in every color, so don't give up on it just yet! If only there was a blue samurai too haha!
