Godo, Bandit Warlord Discussion

Treehugger003 on Akiri & Bruse: Slang Bangin'

I would like to second Godo, Bandit Warlord, Akiri has vigilance so you can get a second attack in.

Some other cards that I like for this combination.

Prowler's Helm Nobody generally runs walls so it usually works wonders.

Fate Forgotten Instant speed exile artifact/enchantment.

Pyroblast just because there are a ton of blue players in my meta and countering their stuff is hilarious.

Tormod's Crypt is an artifact graveyard hate. This is meta dependent. I actually run this and Rest in Peace just because there are a ton of reanimator decks in my meta.

I like the deck. Your deck is probably higher end/faster than mine. I will be stealing some of your card draw ideas.

Added Glacial Crevasses back in, and it and Goblin Sledder won me the very next game against an Angel tribal control deck that I've never beaten. I forgot how much I liked it.

Testing Gravity Sphere again to see if it is the right way to go about countering my biggest creature weakness.

Added Mizzium Mortars per a recommendation by VraskaTheCursed. It is a great compliment to Blasphemous Act.

Testing Mind's Eye and Farsight Maskfor more draw. If I don't like the speed of them, I will put Reforge the Soul back in their place, unless I can find another big draw spell I like more. Wheels have been doing a lot of great work for me lately.

Removed:

Treasonous Ogre - Great card, but I found myself not casting it a lot because I didn't need blistering ramp so much.

Godo, Bandit Warlord - I love this card, but the CMC makes it a hard include. The better my draw gets, the less I need highly costed tutors, but tutoring my Nemesis Mask, Basilisk Collar, or Thornbite Staffand freecasting it can be really nice. May find it's way back in.

Expedition Map - It's hard to quantify the benefit of this card. Sideboarding it until I notice I miss it.

I run a similar list including anya in the 99 but with tajic at the helm.

Due to her indestructible nature and access to stuff like Boros Charm Frontline Medic Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Iroas, God of Victory, i would recommend running powerful spells that indestructible creatures like anya, see my list for reference, but a ton of spells exist that anya survives but everything else wont

Martial Coup

Anger of the Gods

Hour of Revelation

Jokulhaups

Devastation

Kirtar's Wrath

Obliterate

Akroma's Vengeance

Blasphemous Act

Wrath of God

Razia's Purification

Cataclysm

Worldslayer

Armageddon

Also, your lack of tutors is disturbing :/

Stonehewer Giant

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Gamble

Enlightened Tutor

Idyllic Tutor

Open the Armory

As far as artifact theme, you're missing a few key cards

Darksteel Forge

Without this, a single Vandalblast neuters your game plan

Sunforger

not just flavor, this card allows you to run a "toolbox" of 1-4 cmc instants, some i run in tajic are

Comeuppance

Oblation

Chaos Warp

Master Warcraft

Deflecting Palm

Swords to Plowshares

Nim Deathmantle***

Creatures constantly being destroyed? Fear not. Leave 4 mana open and anya and friends will NEVER die, it also abuses etb effects like Godo, Bandit Warlord

@c0dy821: I hope this is a rant of friendly trolling otherwise you seem like one of those people who are the cancer of Magic. By that I mean netdeckers.

@ElfNotGnome: From what I see your main weakness here is mana accelerators and card draw, which kill red and white decks specifically. You have a few equipment cards that can afford to be tossed for better ones and a lot of your one time casting spells for 1/1 creatures are very weak for commander. Might I suggest ditching those for some of these suggestions in your future: Staff of Nin, Sword of the Animist, Mind's Eye, Knollspine Dragon, Tithe, Land Tax, Thran Dynamo, Whispersilk Cloak, Sword of Fire and Ice, Rogue's Gloves, Stoneforge Mystic, Godo, Bandit Warlord, Waves of Aggression, Nahiri, the Harbinger, and Sunforger.

Also, the Smokestack and cards like it do not fit your game plan at all. I get you make tokens but it seems to be a distracting misstep from the idea of voltroning your commander. You should consider making your stuff harder to kill and running more board wipe like Wrath of God, Hour of Reckoning, and Scourglass.

TearsInRain23 on Akiri, Life Smacker

Artifact equipment is nice and synergistic to Akiri but you have a lot of them that would easily be considered overcosted garbage and dead draw. In commander, you need protection if you're running voltron. Boros does not have a lot of that. Some good protection doesn't come cheap. The best in artifacts for this deck are any and all of the swords: Sword of Feast and Famine, Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Light and Shadow, and Sword of War and Peace all being great for commander.

You will also want to invest in better creature support. You have a lot of creatures that are basically one and done or have very little going for them, making them 0 threat to any board. I would recommend some creatures who help you with your voltron build or grant you some utility. Stoneforge Mystic, Stonehewer Giant, Godo, Bandit Warlord, and Puresteel Paladin.

Do not discount some enchantments in voltron builds. Spirit Mantle, Celestial Mantle, Angelic Destiny etc. are also good.

You also need draw or your games will be top decking games really quick. Not to mention some ramp. Sword of the Animist, Land Tax, Knollspine Dragon, Nahiri, the Harbinger, Staff of Nin, Mind's Eye. Reforge the Soul, and Solemn Simulacrum.

Looks good. How about Mirror Gallery to multiply your commander leading a +9/+9 for each creature with 3 opponents. With Godo, Bandit Warlord it would be 2 Equipments and a total of 3 extra combats wich can lead to infinite combats with the blade.

I would also add more tutors for your artifacts. Maybe even Gamble.

Puresteel Paladin seems like a good choice too and there was a cat that allowed for equipping as an instant.

Greets MA.
