Hero's Blade + Isamaru, Hound of Konda = Sif from Dark Souls. Maybe you should add an Artorias for getting them into the field together :P

  • Regarding Assault Suit that is some spicy tech! Its pricey to cast and equip but it boosts power and prevents us from sacrificing Isamaru, Hound of Konda to Diabolic Edict style effects. It's on the consideration list and I will have a strong eye towards it as the meta develops. Thanks for the suggestion!

Mermaidsheep Yeah I took it out while I was still deck building for Preeminent Captain, but I didn't like it, and forgot to put it back in, also Loyal Pegasus is now Isamaru, Hound of Konda because I didn't like it that much, and I used the extra card for another Path to Exile.

  • Thanks for the compliment and the upvote! "Simple" is one of the best words to describe this deck.


  • You are correct that an opposing deck centered around sacrificing creatures would give this deck a hard time. The biggest challenge for this deck are decks that can consistently remove (destroy/exile, sacrifice, or bounce) Isamaru, Hound of Konda and follow it up with card draw; black and/or blue control decks. Attaching Swiftfoot Boots or Champion's Helm can help but a well-timed Winter Orb or Armageddon is best. Success depends completely on what cards you draw.

Both Hope of Ghirapur and Isamaru, Hound of Konda fall under the category of "don't really do much". Using its ability, HoG will become very expensive to cast very quickly. And if you don't, It's very underwhelming as a commander. Isamaru falls into the same trap. It's just a 2/2. That's it. Sure, you can play some equipment but white is the slowest colour in commander so unless you get a really good hand, you're already behind.

If you want to play voltron, you're better off sticking to voltron commanders.

Some other one-drop commanders are Kytheon, Hero of Akros and Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter.

I must say I prefer the options where the commander actually does something, hence my 2 suggestions. These cards are usefull even when they come out later in the game.

Hope of Ghirapur only targets one player, so in a multiplayer pod I don't know how effective it will be, same with Isamaru, Hound of Konda... the only thing I see with these is their color identity and going voltron.

Isamaru, Hound of Konda can be a very fun deck, I believe there's a lost floating around tappedout for a hound deck that has only 1 drops for the entire deck.

I'd also recommend Rhys the Redeemed as a very fun 1 drop commander. He generates a ton of tokens, and in green white you can do a lot.

I don't have too much to say about hope, I haven't considered him much as a commander, but maybe you can come up with something I couldn't.

Hope this helps and good luck
