Gahiji, Honored One Discussion

RazortoothMtg on Help with Forced Attack Deck

2 days ago

Hello all! I'm looking to build a deck that forces everyone to attack me, then punishes them with cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs.

The problem is I don't have nearly enough cards.

For cards that force people to attack, I have Trove of Temptation, Fumiko the Lowblood, Boros Battleshaper (kind of), Bident of Thassa, and Alluring Siren. Also Hellraiser Goblin, since I plan on the commander being Zedruu the Greathearted

As for punishing them when they attack, all I have is Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs, and then Lust for War-type cards, but those aren't great.

And yes, while cards like Crown of Doom, Gahiji, Honored One, and Assault Suit seem great, I want people to attack me. But it only really works if there are more cards like Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs that then punishes them for attacking me.

Edit: After looking a little more, I found Goblin Spymaster, Goblin Diplomats, War's Toll, Warmonger Hellkite, Curse of the Nightly Hunt, and Grand Melee

Samut, Voice of Dissent was my Naya commander before Gishath, Sun's Avatar and dinos.

Samut's a great utility naya commander you don't really need to build around, unlike Mayael the Anima, Marath, Will of the Wild and Gahiji, Honored One.

How is your meta? Is it hyper competitive, or more laid back, with room for fun, interesting decks? Does your group allow for infinite combos? Do players tend to play politically, or is it more of a group slugfest?

Overall, the commandres in Naya are pretty aggressive. As someone who shares your sentiment regarding large creatures (unless they have horrific downsides I get to build around), none of these commanders seemed particularly interesting.

Gahiji, Honored One is a bit interesting. Its ability plays well with table politics, as you give other players a boon if they focus on individuals other than yourself. You could run a number of curses (such as Curse of Bounty) which both encourage other players to attack your opponents and provide you a boon when they do so.

White also has access to wonderful pillow fort cards, allowing you to shore up your defenses, in case someone decides your generous offerings are insufficient.

Ultimately, with your carrot (benefits for attacking others) and stick (punishments for attacking yourself), you can peacefully sit idle and nonthreatening while your opponents tear one another apart. This could buy you enough time to win the game through a more Johnny-appropriate method.

This would not be overly competitive though, so may or may not work for your meta.

Hmmm Gahji vs Wasitora.

I would say unless this is meant to be a surprise definitely drag her into this process now and figure out if she wants a deck that wants to tend towards going wide or one that wants to tend towards going tall.

Gahiji, Honored One is an awesome token/aggro commander. Also works as a bit of huggy and pillow forty.

Wasitora, Nekoru Queen works really well as voltron and kind of a stax-lite commander.

Both can be fun ways to go. Voltron is kind of a pain in the ass since it is usually creature light but Wasitora limits that weakness somewhat.

Gahiji, Honored One would be a good commander for beast tribal.

Gahiji, Honored One - we need some bigger beaters in here. I will try not to comment too often on this, but great idea! Ninja'd!

New one is Momir Vig, Simic Visionary.

I gotta say, I think the limited environment for Rivals will be MUCH better than Ixalan. The tribal synergies are still very strong, but I feel one has more agency to branch out from the tribal synergies. It is no longer tribal or bust IMO (excluding U/W fliers of course, that deck is always good).

I am pretty disappointed that they reprinted Colossal Dreadmaw, Raptor Companion, Sailor of Means, and Legion Conquistador. Only the Conquistador makes sense for draft/sealed environments, but the rest seem lazy.

EDH Dinos is looking well supported, now the question becomes...who is the best Dino commander? My money is on Marath, Will of the Wild with Gahiji, Honored One and Gishath, Sun's Avatar tied for second.

Merfolk now has the additional one drop it needed. There are two new ones too choose from, but I think Mist-Cloaked Herald is the superior option as Jade Bearer sadly can't target itself. I fully expect to see this deck to perform in Standard.

There are a bunch of interesting cards spoiled today, but these are a few I find particularly intriguing:

I don't think I have seen an ability like this before, but I think this guy will be quite strong in limited.

Premium removal that also triggers enrage for . Considered me enthused.

What a punchy little fellow

This is a very interesting card, likely not that good, but an interesting design none the less.

Overall I think this set looks pretty good.
