Godo, Bandit Warlord

Legendary Creature — Human Barbarian

When Godo, Bandit Warlord enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Equipment card and put it onto the battlefield. If you do, shuffle your library.

Whenever Godo attacks for the first time each turn, untap it and all Samurai you control. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase.

Recommended Cards to Add

This of course does not take into accountmana curve considerations or anything similar. It is merely cards to consider

Creatures

Captivating Crew - Repeated steal effect to have ammunition to throw at people

Evra, Halcyon Witness - Large creature that can be as big as your lifetotal when thrown if wanted.

Serra Avatar - Large creature that is as big as your life total to potentially one shot someone and double your lifetotal

Zealous Conscripts - Can steal an opposing creature to throw, opposing walker to ult or any other problematic permenent. Also incidentaly goes infinite with Kiki Jiki.

Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker - Can tap to make copies of your big creatures to throw. Goes infinite with Zealous conscripts.

Malignus - Large creature that scales with life total of opponent

Molten Primordial - Mass threaten on a stick

Feldon of the Third Path - makes copies of your already dead creatures

Emeria Shepherd - Recursion that can also be reanimation

Hoarding Dragon - A way to search out our game winning artifacts. Easy enough to throw at someone to get our artifact.

Karmic Guide - Reanimation

Neheb, the Eternal - lots of mana if you throw things pre combat

Yosei, the Morning Star - Very good thing to be able to recur. Can lock people out of the game with enough setup.

War Elemental - Scales as we throw things

Bloodshot Cyclops - Backup Brion?

Bearer of the Heavens - Dont make me do this!

Godo, Bandit Warlord - Can tutor up our powerful equipment. Would prefer Stoneforge Mystic but one is a lot more money than the other.

Gisela, Blade of Goldnight - Double our damage, half theirs? Yes please

Instants

The usual goes here of making sure that we have interaction for people trying to stop us or making sure we can stop people. Though of specific mention

Faith's Reward - Recover from a wrath or just rebuy a couple of good creatures after a combat and throw.

Orim's Thunder - Hadn't actually seen this before but it seems to be a good potential 2 for 1 while also being a good answer to artifacts and enchantments.

Sorceries

Here there are a lot of potential threaten effects that i could recommend. But we know that we need them so i won't list them all. Other effects we could need do include one or two wraths as even though we are the creature deck, sometimes they just have more or better creatures. However other things to note.

Open the Armory - Tutors equipment or Auras.

Chandra's Ignition - Targetting some of our big creatures might just end the game with this.

Insurrection - You usually just win if this resolves on a decent board state.

Artifacts

Usual list of mana ramp. Sol Ring Boros Signet Commander's Sphere Mind Stone Boros Cluestone Hedron Archive Gilded Lotus Thran Dynamo etc

Other than that, the fun things include

Phyrexian Processor - Yeh this card is rather good. Just Make big tokens and start throwing them

Well of Lost Dreams - With the triggers from Brion we should be able to restock our hand quite easily with this

Illusionist's Bracers - Copy the fling. As sacrificing a creature is part of the cost it will effectively be two triggers from flinging the same creature.

Thornbite Staff - Untaps brion when a creature dies. This includes sacrificing the creature to brion, so effectively tapping him causes him to untap....

Thousand-Year Elixir - Gives Brion haste and an untap.

Aetherflux Reservoir - 50cal Sniper Rifle to the face anyone?

Enchantments

Damage doublers can be recommended but i usually avoid the symettrical ones from personal preference. One or two effects that give Haste might be good too. Other effects however

Flameshadow Conjuring - Copy up our faties for good ETB triggers, effective haste or extra copies to throw with Brion.

Sigil of the New Dawn - Recur everything!

Marshal's Anthem - Decent mass resurrect in white. Though a little mana intensive

Angelic Renewal - One time use recursion of a creature

Goblin Bombardment - Backup sacrifice effects for all our threatens. WE don't want to have to give their toys back do we?

Drakorya on Zndrsplt and Okaun Colin flip ...

1 week ago

Frenetic Sliver is another creature that will let you flip an arbitrarily large amount of coins.

Other creatures with decent coin-flip abilities are Goblin Archaeologist , Karplusan Minotaur and Mogg Assassin . You could also include Deadeye Quartermaster and Godo, Bandit Warlord if you're running equipment like Lightning Greaves / Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak for Okaun.

The Locust God and Psychosis Crawler are also good if you plan on comboing with Zndrsplt.

greyninja on Your Most Complex/Expensive InfiCombos/Game-Ending Synergies

2 weeks ago

People will likely come up with more complex; but here's some high cmc

Well known, but at 15 mana is Aurelia, the Warleader + Helm of the Host . Usually you'll cast , then whatever turns later for a surprise win. Godo, Bandit Warlord is more efficient at

Biovisionary + Spitting Image is what... 20 mana and 2 lands! Progenitor Mimic and Rite of Replication are better(?)

I like Progenitor Mimic + Eternal Witness + Temporal Manipulation . Once e-wit is already in play, you might have pay 11 mana to pull that off in one turn. There's also Archaeomancer and Salvager of Secrets which are less efficient. Deadeye Navigator instead of the mimic is even more mana per turn.

;)

You can also chose a few tutor cards to get to your Sunforger or any other important equipments like Steelshaper's Gift or for a creature Godo, Bandit Warlord

Church_of_Rakdos on La angeloj

imho if you intend to go to this route and you have no intention of going Mayael, then I would add in Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Rites of Flourishing , Collective Voyage , Veteran Explorer , Hypergenesis , Magus of the Vineyard , Ghirapur Orrery , Reality Scramble , Sunbird's Invocation , Selvala's Stampede , Gate to the AEther , etc. to be able to play a lot of these cards without getting mana screwed since you won't always draw Mayael and have an obscenely high avg cmc.

I would look into more cards like Goblin Sharpshooter , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Krenko, Mob Boss , Sylvan Library , Combat Celebrant , Shalai, Voice of Plenty , Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , Angel of Condemnation , Ahn-Crop Champion (and various other exert cards)), Elvish Piper , etc.

You could also definitely go for infinite attack phases with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Combat Celebrant , Hellkite Charger + Savage Ventmaw , Godo, Bandit Warlord , Aurelia, the Warleader , etc.

Honorable Mentions: Vernal Equinox , Possibility Storm (trade cheaper creatures in for your larger ones), Oath of Druids , Yisan, the Wanderer Bard , Champion of Rhonas , Sword of the Animist , Sword of Feast and Famine , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Feldon of the Third Path , Heartless Hidetsugu , Stonehewer Giant , etc.

Let me know how the list comes along.

Godo, Bandit Warlord seems to only work for Samurai, unless he is in there just as an equipment tutor, which seems like a bit much to search up an equipment. Perhaps he could go?

Dango on Brothers Yamazaki Partner Commanders

1 month ago

First and foremost, I want to start this discussion by saying that Kamigawa was one of my favorite sets in terms of flavor but not necessarily mechanically. Brothers Yamazaki was certainly an interesting card, but they don't really have a lot going for them I'm afraid aside from being somewhat beefier when two copies of them are on the field at the same time.

As far as the lore goes, Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki were an incredibly interesting duo. They were twin brothers only distinguishable by the adornments on their kabutos and the weapons they wielded. These two were originally samurais in service of Konda, Lord of Eiganjo , but left his service because Konda pulled forces away from their home village in order to protect Eiganjo Castle during the Kami War. The brothers were offended by his leadership to disregard the surrounding villages and left to defend them. They met Godo, Bandit Warlord who was a barbarian that greatly opposed Konda. The Yamazaki brothers decided to join the ranks of the Sanzoku Bandits and quickly became two of Godo's most respected lieutenants. The bandits rebelled against Konda, but failed an assault on Eiganjo and the brothers left Godo's service soon after. Their father had sent a messenger to them requesting to return home because he needed help defending the village from kami. Upon arrival, Seitaro slew a kami of fire and ice, but the brothers found out the kami was actually their father in the guise of a guardian who protected their village. Despite the death of their father, the brothers took on the role of protecting their village and they were successful at defending it throughout the war. However, the brothers never received any recognition for their acts of valor during the war and they parted ways because of their father's death.

With that very rough summary of their background out of the way, I would like to throw around the idea of them appearing as a Partner Commander pair, much like that of Partners that appeared in the Battlebond set. I think in terms of their color combination, they would drift heavily into Boros colors, but I could also see Mardu or Jeskai given their background. I want to leave this open-ended, and I'd like to ask you all what you think this pair of ronins might look like mechanically. Could you see Wizards potentially reprinting this duo and in what form? How would you envision a fresh take on Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki? Do you think a Return to Kamigawa-esque set might appear in the near future?

I personally could see the duo represented as Partner commanders in something like a Battlebond 2 expansion, or I wouldn't be surprised if they appeared in a new Kamigawa set on a single face card to represent both of them, much like how Firesong and Sunspeaker is done but under the name Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki and have abilities representative of them. What do you guys think about this? Leave a comment below, I'm really excited for this discussion!

Cheers!
