Heartless Hidetsugu Discussion

You should add Heartless Hidetsugu and some X mana burn cards to combo with your commander

Glissa, the Traitor was my first Budget Commander League deck.
I primarily built it, without infinite combos, to participate in this league.
I really enjoy the First Strike + Deathtouch, it's an amazing combination.
It was originally a Modular build, around Birthing Pod , then it slowly transitioned into a primarily deck, now I'm trying to move toward more drawing to be able to ramp lands out to have more consistency with Mind Slaver .
Because of the restriction on budget Mtggoldfish.com at $49.58, so it evolves and changes as the prices of cards shift.
Currently, it's core strengths:
Control, sometimes I control the creatures (effectively) of all 3 opponents at the same time. When I get an Executioner's Capsule lock it can be pretty fun.
Recursion, it's good, gets the Artifacts recurring and utilized properly can prosper
No infinite combo, most of my other Budget Commander League decks have build in infinite combos (eg. Brago, King Eternal , Alesha, Who Smiles at Death ) or one shot kills with damage / commander damage ( Heartless Hidetsugu , Animar, Soul of Elements ).
I found ramping into the 10 mana required to recur the Mind Slaver was too slow (1 hour time limit on Budget league games), so instead of just increasing ramp (through artifacts), I've increased the draw. ( Ohran Viper for example)
Damage output, was good at keeping creatures off the board, but didn't have enough offense to do 3 players x 40 damage in the 1 hour, plus I was mitigating other players ability to damage each other. This is what led to the addition of Bonehoard , Nighthowler cards. I lost Blood Artist due to it's price escalating, which sucked, it's key, but I've added Poison-Tip Archer , which is no Blood Artist but he also has Deathtouch and Reach, plus instead of 1 opponent, he hits all opponents.
Glissa, the Traitor is still one of my favorite commanders, she has her strengths, has her weaknesses, she doesn't overload on abilities like Infect (which she could), so I very much enjoy playing her. Golgari () doesn't have enough combos to play cEDH, but in a Budget league, she is an excellent deck.
I have been trying to more move towards Deathtouch as well wherever I can as well, since it kind of plays towards that.
I've been playing this deck for over 4+ years, and never dismantled, only changed as the ebs and flows of the prices increased. If she was $100, she could be much more lethal.

So I just happened to upload my Heartless Hidetsugu draft, and your toshi deck appeares right above it. So now here I am, enjoying the sight of another umezawa build. Yours looks great. As you can basicallly just slam any instant removal into toshi, I won't suggest any of those. But a card you should definitely try is Glaring Spotlight . Heads up for the great deck. Maybe take a look at mine? Double Tap (Toshiro Umezawa "instant value")

Hoobynobber7395, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death 's ability can only be activated during the attacker's step, allowing the opponent a chance to block Master of Cruelties during the declare blockers step (or to respond with removal). If you absolutely must connect with a player (and again, barring removal), a Dauthi Embrace would do the trick.
I've built a couple Mogis, God of Slaughter Group-Slug decks. I hope you would check one out tell me what you think. Maybe you'll also see a few cards that can liven up your deck, like Heartless Hidetsugu or Spellshock .

Make a BRWG coloured deck that focuses on manipulating players life totals to win.
Burn can be utilized as a secondary win condition.

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.
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.

Kaervek is just misunderstood, like his buddy, the Heartless Hidetsugu . +1, fun budget build!

Pretty nice deck. I know he's not a vampire, but considering some your vampires start going crazy at low opposing life totals, Heartless Hidetsugu might be quite useful.
