Godo, Bandit Warlord Discussion

Bxbx on Please Help!!! Cutting cards for ...

1 week ago

Hi,I evaluated some cards for my own Gishath EDH deck just yesterday. Maybe it will help you. You can check it out here:

Extreme Dinosaurs EDH

The basic problem, that all Gishath-decks have in my opinion, is that they have to play a lot of big, clunky dinosaurs, which you would not include in any other EDH deck ever, because they are just weak compared to cards like Avenger of Zendikar, Godo, Bandit Warlord or Sun Titan for example. So at least your non-dinosaur-cards should be as strong and impactful as possible. You should also avoid playing too many cards that do nothing on their own, are too situational or are just "win more".

This is why I'd recommend to cut cards like:

Huatli, Dinosaur Knight, Drover of the Mighty or Savage Stomp (all not good enough for EDH);

World at War, Fires of Yavimaya or Brave the Sands (do nothing on their own);

Guttural Response, Teferi's Protection (too situational);

Titanic Ultimatum, Overwhelming Stampede (win more, also do nothing on their own);

I also do not like cards like Lurking Predators and See the Unwritten or Selvala's Stampede in here because they offer an effect that your commander already provides. I'm not sure if the redundancy is needed.

Had another thought about this deck. Sorceries or creatures that grant you an additional combat step would be very very clutch. Some will require varying degrees of combo shenanigans (i.e., Godo, Bandit Warlord would require Arcane Adaption (or Conspiracy), Seize the Day would require vigilance) but if you don't mind the flavor fail, Hellkite Charger could do some work!

I would say Krenko or Purphoros are my gut reactions when I think mono-red.

I have a Feldon deck and if Im honest with myself I dont enjoy it. Its not all pimped out power-wise, but its not weak either. There just arent as many nuances to it, just kind of loot loot swing as you said. And its really annoying when people start realizing they can just kill him and youre stuck with a mitt/yard full of fatties.

You could also try Godo, Bandit Warlord or Fumiko the Lowblood. Fumiko really encourages going all in, and Godo encourages a certain build. Could be fun? Zada, Hedron Grinder makes for an interesting build. Maybe somewhat dangerous...

i would recommend adding red i can see where you are going with this deck but there are a lot of other very good red cards that go very well with samurai. my samurai deck started out as tribal but later got push over to a kind of Kamigawa block deck. one amazing inclusion to this deck would be Godo, Bandit Warlord he lets you search for an equipment and even if you don't use that part you get another combat phase with all your samurai.

Great feedback!

The suggestion is definitely worth watching for. When I was compiling the cards for the combo, I only found a few that worked in the R/W scenario: Ronin Cliffrider, Scalding Salamander, and Shockmaw Dragon. The downside was each creature only damaged the defending player's creatures instead of every other creature.

These do exist, but in other colors.

Not that it is a bad thing though -- I can have the board wipe creature attack one opponent while the vehicles attack another opponent, or go all out one one player.

Statistically speaking, the chances of getting the combo off is in the 3-15% range due to lack of creature tutoring. I can get the Sword of Kaldra to the battlefield in a few different ways (raising the average), but getting the Ronin Cliffrider out is 1% unless I pull it in my opening hand.

I've learned not to have too many combos in a commander deck due to probability, but also not to have one wincon.

I can shortcut the process by Flickering Godo, Bandit Warlord, but that too is statistically small.

I'll keep looking at different options. Thanks again for the comment!

There are a bunch of Red red/white cards that give additional attack phases. That work well with your commander. Godo, Bandit Warlord is the one I've been using in my Akiri deck. there is also Aurelia the warleader. I think there are also some dragons but I'm not sure of them.

Iroas, God of Victory works well in Red/white for attacking damage.

Gratuitous Violence lets you double the damage again.

I ran Akiri and Bruce Tarl as my partner commanders for a long time with great success (it was also one of my favorites). I'm just going to throw out a bunch of things that worked for me and some of my thoughts.

I am wondering about the Eldrazi. They take A LOT of mana. Red/white is usually struggling to get that much mana and I'm not really seeing some of the cards I would have expected to really put lands on the battle field and or cheat them in. Deathrender, Burnished Hart, Pilgrim's Eye.

For equipment you are running the swords. They were too expensive for me. Some of the equipment that I was using include: Godsend, Prowler's Helm, Trailblazer's Boots, Assault Suit this is more for sacrafice protection but it is hilarious to see somebody use your commander to kill off somebody else, Mask of Memory.

Protection: Darksteel Forge yeah, yeah i know i just said the eldrazi were expensive mana wise. Meekstone Akiri has vigilance. Reconnaissance is abuseable for non vigilant creatures.

Removal: If you are running sunforger I cannot recommend enough Mistveil Plains please note it is also a plains card so it is easier to tutor. I would also suggest adding a bit more artifact/enchantment removal. Fate Forgotten is cheap and fetchable with sunforger. I would also highly recommend at least a couple of boardwipes. There is a boardwipe in white that kills non white creatures and Nevinyrral's Disk has some fun interactions with Darksteel Forge if you go this rout I would also pick up Armory Automaton for a beater.

General utility: Mimic Vat is one of my auto includes in everything. Godo, Bandit Warlord is just awesome in this deck, Open the Vaults, Thought Vessel. Depending on meta I would look at some graveyard hate too. I was running both Rest in Peace and Tormod's Crypt but there are a bunch of recursion decks I play against regularly. Hellkite Tyrant is another possibility depending on meta.

Good luck with Akiri. -Tree
