Helm of the Host would be good for this. Make more copies. Spark Double would work too.

What's up JP? Not that bad of a start, I think I'm tracking all your combos, but why Helm of the Host? I didn't notice a line with it. I'm thinking just to strap it to Tishana? Would Blade of Selves be better? I know its technically slower, but it would be faster as its 3 mana cheaper.

Would also recommend Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries if you're going to swap for blade.

Also would recommend slotting in atleast 3-4 artifact/creature removal spells just to have as options in case of opponents running blood pod variants or stax pieces. Or maybe bounce effects like Unsubstantiate could be better for tempo plays?

Its not budget at the moment but Swarmyard should be here if you can swing it.

Also Since you are running the token doublers Renowned Weaver I think is the only other mono green option that makes spiders. However, you could run Helm of the Host and Mimic Vat which would put token copies of your spiders on the board for doubling. There is also Birthing Boughs which makes shapeshifters that are spiders. Riptide Replicator does too but its over all investment is high.

Helm of the Host for combo with godo or value with etali

Maybe Embercleave to go with Godo

Maybe add High Market to stop theft effects

Arcane Signet > Prismatic lens

Gauntlet of Power and Wheel of Fortune

Endless Atlas 100%

There is a 2 drop red card I think that adds mana (I think for dinos and gives them haste, I forgot what it's called, probably from Ixalan set, look it up)

Command Beacon

TOP!!!!!!

You have a lot of haste outlets, cut need for speed as it's the worst redundancy.

Outpost Siege in your maybeboard should go in. Even without you using top in response to the trigger (to ensure you always have something to cast and get the free card draw), its good stable card draw that you will need.

Mind's eye most def, you NEED card draw. I can't understate this

Oh they are only 5/4 when blocking or being blocked. Otherwise they would be 4/3.

Helm of the Host muddles with the clause on the legendary rule, so you can't have the 2nd copy out, but the tokens it creates are not legendary. So, you can get more and stack the +2/+2 from each one.

Also Mirror Gallery.

So I want to build a Brothers Yamazaki deck. It would play with two significant, yet not that powerful, rules changes.

  • 1.) You can build the deck with two copies of Brothers Yamazaki in it.
  • 2.) They are errata'd in game to have "Partners with Brothers Yamazaki."

This would allow you, the player of the deck, to have two copies of Brothers Yamazaki in your deck, and both of them be your Commander. I would recommend sleeving them in different colored sleeves to keep track of each individual entity easier.

So this would be a standard 98 card library with 2x Commander's, like when you have Partners.

With that established, what would be the best way to build it?

Doing this purely for fun, but also because it sounds like a nice idea.

I'd say keep the budget to $200 or less so it can be decent. Since basically all lands can just be basics, that actually saves a lot of money for spicer cards.

The first thing that comes to mind is an aggressive aggro deck. You have two 5/4s on the field dealing Commander Damage. Yes each of them must deal their own 21 points to knock someone out, I know this. It's not a total, it's individual.

So cards that allow extra combat steps might be worth while. I think it would benefit heavily from Helm of the Host as well. If I am going aggro, Neheb, the Eternal, Etali, Primal Storm and Ilharg, the Raze-Boar would certainly want to be in there. Hellkite Charger as well, to get those extra steps. This makes me also believe Archetype of Aggression for that boon and creatures like Urabrask the Hidden may be worth looking into, along with Fervor.

EDIT: Wrong Archetype :p

Aside from attacking though, what else should it have? Burn? Light Voltron? Land destruction?
