Isao, Enlightened Bushi Discussion

In my humble opinion if control is a problem, there are better options to deal with counterspells than Vexing Shusher - as in the end its a "dead card" in the sense that it does nothing beside preventing counters.

Cards like Mistcutter Hydra, Skylasher, Isao, Enlightened Bushi, Prowling Serpopard & Thrun, the Last Troll all have built useful bodies, and built in hexproof without any additional mana investment.

darmpark the best thing i can give you about samurai for edh is either make it boros color commander or Naya color commander I dont really play commander so idk which one would be the best but i would build it around Isao, Enlightened Bushi he is the only green samurai but is best for the tribe. i really recommend Naya colors tho because green will help you ramp because samurai are high costing cards if your willing i would like to collaborate with you on making one if your willing! ive been looking to make an EDH deck but idk where to start and i think this would help me

Nice deck, I really like the idea behind a simple and cheap EDH deck. If you are looking for suggestions, maybe check these out to use Isao, Enlightened Bushi's regeneration ability for more than just himself: Chameleon Colossus, Runed Stalactite, Changeling Titan, Game-Trail Changeling, Woodland Changeling, and Proteus Machine.

LittleBlueHero on What commander should I build ...

Ishkanah, Grafwidow would be pretty easy to build on a budget. Especially if you went tribal.

I built her with toughness as a focus which has been fun in testing.

I have also always wanted to play Isao, Enlightened Bushi as a commander but everytime I start building the new sets come out with something that steals my attention away.

so I went around for awhile looking for good humans. as that is what I like to theme my decks around. I found a green creature that can be good if you have to fight heavy burns or people with some counters spells. Isao, Enlightened Bushi I don't think your deck needs this card but rather should have in a side board in-case you need a none counter-able creature to get angelic overseer on the field. other lands that you may like Fortified Village. if you run into strong none indestructible Reprisal. for that cheap but broken creature Silkwrap for that tough creature Suspension Field. I really hope you make the humans proud.

Swedishcat you can make a mono white version to get rid of the Brushland, in this case you must replace Isao, Enlightened Bushi and Kentaro, the Smiling Cat for other white samurai.

You can also replace Eiganjo Castle for a simple Plains and Path to Exile for a card like Devouring Light.

This is a casual tribal deck, if you want to play at fnm i would recommend the JonathanSamurai list: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/samurai-glory/ :)
