Legendary Creature — Human Barbarian

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.

Godo, Bandit Warlord Discussion

Ocelot44 on Aurelia - Equipment Voltron (EDH/Commander)

If you're going to run Gisela, the Broken Blade without Bruna, the Fading Light, then I feel like you may as well run Baneslayer Angel instead. For 1 more mana, you get 1 extra power, 2 extra toughness, and protection from demons and dragons

Right now you're running a heavy amount of artifacts that have no tap abilities, so you could make excellent use of Inspiring Statuary! It's a very niche card but it fits well here because you run lots of non-artifact spells!

Godo, Bandit Warlord is a voltron staple because he grabs you an equipment when he hits the field, and he gives you an extra combat step for all your vigilance creature and samurai! Goes really well with Helm of the Host as well

I also noticed you're not running Inventors' Fair? Seems like a no-brainer inclusion to me

Godo, Bandit Warlord is a voltron staple - it tutors up an equipment to the field, and it gives you an extra combat step for all your vigilance creatures and samurai if you have them

You run lots of artifacts that have no tap abilities, so you could make good use of Inspiring Statuary

Teferi's Protection is the hip new protection spell in edh, and if you can’t afford it, I’m a huge fan of Leave / Chance because it can protect your stuff from sacrifice and exile, it’s a Brand effect, and it’s an emergency draw source!

Prowler's Helm is hilarious because no one runs walls so it may as well read “can’t be blocked”

SynergyBuild on Tiana, the only boros commander that draws

Yeah, so is it my imagination that Sram, Senior Artificer, the most popular mono-white commander on EDHREC and one of the cheapest card draw engines in the Command Zone in the game, next to Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Nin, the Pain Artist, Sygg, River Cutthroat, and the almighty Thrasios, Triton Hero, while Sram also being one of the most efficient after it hits.

Or you know, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, a repeatable tutor in the command zone, Djeru, With Eyes Open, another tutor, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, repeatable recursion much like the old Reya Dawnbringer, or in red Daretti, Scrap Savant, one of the most popular mono-red commanders (#2 on EDHREC) with built in card selection, recursion, and more, emblemmy recursion on top, Zada, Hedron Grinder, a storm commander that gains card advantage with effects like Expedite, Godo, Bandit Warlord being a tutor, Feldon of the Third Path being recursion that is repeatable.

And again, the other boros commanders like Depala and Munda.

I guess I was mistaken, and some of the most popular commanders of all time, like Zada storm on a budget, Sram, or Daretti never existed.

legendofa: It's not a bad combo, but Hellkite Charger is very mana intensive and for a Boros deck, I'm not sure how many lands I'll actually have in play. Aggravated Assault+Sword of Feast and Famine is a lot more playable from a mana point of view. The only danger is making sure I don't saturate the deck with a bunch of individual combos, especially all ones that can get shut down by a single Fog effect or something like Ghostly Prison (yes, sword gets around this somewhat bu you have to have a lot of lands). I also need to balance the amount of creature and non-creature cards (the deck still needs to be able to just turn sideways after all).

I think if I was going to add any additional combat loop pieces, the first goto would be Godo, Bandit Warlord as he also tutors for Helm. It does mean that there is a heavy reliance on Helm of the Host but that's playing combo unfortunately. That or adding a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker (and maybe Village Bell-Ringer) who has a nice line with Recruiter of the Guard. Plus he's gross with Magus of the Wheel.

I personally think that any commander (Godo, Bandit Warlord) that can go infinite as early as turn one deserves a higher ranking than 'High Power'. =)

MushroomKing30 on One-Flip-Kill, Okaun Voltron

It’s seems we’re going both the same route in which we don’t want every coinflip card in our okaun/zndrsplt decks, tbh they’re quite bad with a few exceptions, such as those instant speed once, Desperate Gambit, Aleatory, Chaotic Strike, since you can use them as combit tricks to give you that one last flip for the KO. I’m also surprised you included tenza, but not Godo, Bandit Warlord himself. Godo (and basically any other extra combat creature) seems really good with these two, plus he can tutor any equipment i.e. greaves. I like keys to the city, i never thought about it but you actually end up with a lot of cards in your hand once you get 3 or more flips with zndrsplt, that would otherwise go to waste and just discarded at end of turn. Also, i would highly recommend Vanishing and Reality Ripple for any blue voltron commander, as phasing out is op, it’s better than hexproof and indestructable combined!

I feel Aurelia, the Warleader belongs in the same tier as Godo, Bandit Warlord under High Power

Godo is faster and easier to hate of the board. Aurelia is slower but is able to take more hits thanks to white. Both are very consistent generals for Helm of the Host combo, and in my experience, having one over the other is more personal preference rather than winrate when using optimized lists.

Here is the list I use for Aurelia for reference, can also be used as an Aurelia decklist if this thread needs one

Godo, Bandit Warlord and Helm of the Host will produce infinite 3/3 godos if you can generate 11 mana before a single combat step.
