Konda, Lord of Eiganjo Discussion
3 months ago
LittleBlueHero I red the same or similar thread on the MTGSalvation and it does seem like a cool idea, but I think Wizards will stray a bit from such a dark and gloomy theme as printing 4 villains decks. Maybe 2v2 heroes and villains, but then again that does remind a little too much to the old duel decks.
As for a little side note: The recent sets (recent emm give or take 16 years :D) have tried to shift the focus on black as the main villain color towards the others, because black is more about individuality, which like other colors can be taken to extreme.
Non-black villains: Konda, Lord of Eiganjo - Stole That Which Was Taken in order to become immortal, which resulted in the Kami War Meloku the Clouded Mirror - Helped Konda with his plan, but intended to claim the entire plane for himself and the soratami.
Heliod, God of the Sun - After Xenagos, he's the second villain in the Theroes storyline. He also killed Elspeth.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite - Currently supposed elader of New Phyrexia
Dovin Baan - Major antagonist in Kaladesh and War of the spark story lines
Baral, Chief of Compliance - murdered Chandra's father, another major antagonist from Kaladesh
Pretty much the entire Consulate from Kaladesh is white-blue aligned.
Vivien Reid - while technically not a villain she does represent a ...certain side of the green mana. (MTGWiki quotes her saying that "She wants to destroy the cancer of civilization"...ouch)
Black heroes: Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Fought on the side of the Gatewatch against the Eldrazi.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan - Fought against the Consulate in the Kaladesh story line.
Toshiro Umezawa - major protagonist in the Kami War
Sorin Markov - despite his panache and the whole War of the spark scene with Nahiri, he's still one f the three who imprisoned the Eldrazi Titans. Also created Avacyn to protect mankind on innistrad.
Lord Windgrace - Fought against Phyrexia alongside the Nine Titans. Sacrificed himself to seal a time rift in Dominaria.
There could be more examples but I can't think of any at this time.
P.S. I may have gone overboard with this much examples as is :S

If I remember the story right, Konda, Lord of Eiganjo was just trying to make Kamigawa great again.

Actually I'll try my luck on the Four Colors myself: Starting w/ Yidris (), It lacks , which represents LAW & ORDER: MTG THE SERIES EDITION (XD), Discipline in a pinch, A sense of Morality in an Ethical Base (Thus Why One of Bruce Wayne/Batman's colors would be for an ethical code (He breaks.).), & is religious sometimes, always wants some kind of conformity, & needs to be Structured by governmental & Planning means. White seeks peace through Structure. All four other colors don't have this merit. In some way or another, any of the other 4 colors of the Pie will go berserk (Blue being too obsessed over Planning Reckt & Link (Second time I said that... Somebody make a second true sequel to Rozenkreuzstilette, please..), Black's Ambition, & Lust for Power would be the same as Oda Nogunaga's end result of his life, defeat. Red is the Rawest of Emotion of the five colors, & potentially the most Chaotic, & mentally out of it. & Green can go berserk at anytime like an actual animal w/ a bloodlust that murders others.). The reason why (Boros Legion) has Chaos in them at all, is part of the part of the Guild Identity.)
This is why if you don't include in this identity, all four colors will go Insane beyond a cure. Thus the reason whi it is dubbed as "Chaos"; sure, had some of the most evil characters in MTG, like Konda, Lord of Eiganjo , who intentionally pissed off a Kami-Sama named O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami by stealing their That Which Was Taken , & Heliod, God of the Sun congratulated Elspeth, Sun's Champion after she committed Deicide on Xenagos, the Reveler , who killed the previous God, & replaced (Gender is the same as UNDERTALE-Era Chara.) as a result, & was killed by her, & congratulated her by killing her with her own Godsend , & sent Erebos to watch her, making sure she never leaves, even if Ajani Goldmane can intervene. Aside from this, is the color identity of Pure CHAOS, Working Nickname?: Discord. Don't ask; he's like this in the Season 1 Finale (At least) in MLP FIM.
On the topic of Breya's Colors, Green wasn't there as it seems to focus on some kind of Animal Instinct, As they abhor impurities (Look at Vivien's Arkbow , idiot. & look at any Mono- Enchantment ever made, Baka Yarou!). Their tuning with nature would make me want to say: Where did we get metallic materials? Your Peat; which evolved to Slate. As Green in all Planes of the Multiverse knows nothing of Peat: (Here comes a Dictionary Section: a brown deposit resembling soil, formed by the partial decomposition of vegetable matter in the wet acidic conditions of bogs and fens, and often cut out and dried for use as fuel and in gardening.)
White has conformity, which can help in a big BIG project. Blue is basically the Brains of these four colors. Black has Ambition, & can even help with ideas that are sometimes SO CRAZY, it just might help the project better. While Red can Destroy the land around it, & even Artifice, actually has a Passion for the project, & can even help in a pinch when an idea is weighed in on the For Color's Opinions. This color is also adventurous, meaning it believes if it can't work well enough, at least the other colors can help make a decision. What ever this BIG Project is, is that, thus why I call this Color Identity Nickname: "MIND≒0" (Hey, it's NOT A Persona 4 Ripoff, The Protagonist actually kicks ass, I hated Yu Narukami (IMO.), & The Captain's Attendant, or whatever isn't the main Antagonist here. There, I spoiled P4 for you. Just Play either Persona 3, or 5 instead, will ya?). But seriously though, I chose that name as the 4 colors of such creativity can even be a literal team, each w/ a good part to play for all 4 colors. Sure, has Impurities of their own, but sensing AEther, & creating organic life as a construct far from counts... Friggen elves of Kaladesh. -_-
Welp, that's 2 4c's down, 3 to go. I'd appreciate your thoughts on my case...

First and foremost, I want to start this discussion by saying that Kamigawa was one of my favorite sets in terms of flavor but not necessarily mechanically. Brothers Yamazaki was certainly an interesting card, but they don't really have a lot going for them I'm afraid aside from being somewhat beefier when two copies of them are on the field at the same time.
As far as the lore goes, Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki were an incredibly interesting duo. They were twin brothers only distinguishable by the adornments on their kabutos and the weapons they wielded. These two were originally samurais in service of Konda, Lord of Eiganjo , but left his service because Konda pulled forces away from their home village in order to protect Eiganjo Castle during the Kami War. The brothers were offended by his leadership to disregard the surrounding villages and left to defend them. They met Godo, Bandit Warlord who was a barbarian that greatly opposed Konda. The Yamazaki brothers decided to join the ranks of the Sanzoku Bandits and quickly became two of Godo's most respected lieutenants. The bandits rebelled against Konda, but failed an assault on Eiganjo and the brothers left Godo's service soon after. Their father had sent a messenger to them requesting to return home because he needed help defending the village from kami. Upon arrival, Seitaro slew a kami of fire and ice, but the brothers found out the kami was actually their father in the guise of a guardian who protected their village. Despite the death of their father, the brothers took on the role of protecting their village and they were successful at defending it throughout the war. However, the brothers never received any recognition for their acts of valor during the war and they parted ways because of their father's death.
With that very rough summary of their background out of the way, I would like to throw around the idea of them appearing as a Partner Commander pair, much like that of Partners that appeared in the Battlebond set. I think in terms of their color combination, they would drift heavily into Boros colors, but I could also see Mardu or Jeskai given their background. I want to leave this open-ended, and I'd like to ask you all what you think this pair of ronins might look like mechanically. Could you see Wizards potentially reprinting this duo and in what form? How would you envision a fresh take on Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki? Do you think a Return to Kamigawa-esque set might appear in the near future?
I personally could see the duo represented as Partner commanders in something like a Battlebond 2 expansion, or I wouldn't be surprised if they appeared in a new Kamigawa set on a single face card to represent both of them, much like how Firesong and Sunspeaker is done but under the name Seitaro and Shujiro Yamazaki and have abilities representative of them. What do you guys think about this? Leave a comment below, I'm really excited for this discussion!

I'd have to nominate Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker, as she was able to defeat both Konda, Lord of Eiganjo and O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami. In all fairness, she was helped by Kyonda(the freed spirit of That Which Was Taken), but that still means she had a major hand in the defeat of both Konda, Lord of Eiganjo AND O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami, which is more difficult than singe-handedly defeating either one alone.

This is what I think about when I'm driving around for work.
Who is the strongest sword fighter in Magic: the Gathering? I'm putting two criteria in: your nominee must use a sword, and you should be able to defend your selection. (If anyone says Squire, I'll be very interested to hear the reasoning.)
I nominate Konda, Lord of Eiganjo. By himself, he is as strong as any three ordinary soldiers. When he starts really fighting, he's on par with ancient dragons and marine monstrosities. The indestructibility is a side effect of stealing That Which Was Taken, but even without it, he is in the realm of creatures that define entire planes.

How dare you question my reign?
When you set this scheme in motion, each player sacrifices a permanent. A player who can't taps all permanents they control. These permanents don't untap during their controller's next untap step.
You and permanents you control have hexproof.
If you control no creatures, abandon this scheme.
Because Konda, Lord of Eiganjo is a great villain.
Give us a white legendary cat that is the villain in its ark (no ajani).

I've always liked how each of the colors in MtG have both positive and negative aspects because it gives a lot of fertile ground to work with for storytelling. But I think that you've implied a very important point about how WotC has generally portrayed the characters and color aspects in most of their stories. Konda, Lord of Eiganjo and Toshiro Umezawa were rare looks into aspects of their respective colors that we hadn't seen up until that point, and still don't see much of today.
I think that we did get to see a little bit of the negative side of green in the Mirari stories of the Odyssey and Onslaught blocks, where the Mirari caused a cancerous level of growth in the Krosan forest. However, that growth was not directed, it had no conscious intent or philosophy prompting it. I think the closest we get to a villainous representation of the darker aspects of Green's philosophy is Momir Vig, Simic Visionary and his plan regarding Experiment Kraj, but I think that the influence of Blue in Simic made that plan a little too "mad sciencey" to be a real reflection of Green.
I would like to see a true central Green villain; one that believes in uncontrolled growth, that strength is a credible basis for morality, and that the world would be a better place place if people lived and died by their individual strengths as a part of the cycle of life. The villain could come from a place where the world has become stagnant to the point of being on the verge of rot, and they believe that ramping up the natural processes inherent in Green is the only way to restore the world. The villain wouldn't care who died or what was destroyed in the process, everything would work out for the Greater Good of the whole world in the end.
Kaladesh kind of gave us a look at a world where White could be seen as the villain, where rules and regulations centralized authority and restricted the achievements of individuals through control and distribution of the Aether supply. Still, once again we see Blue as a prominent part of the equation working along with white and putting more emphasis on the "control" aspect than on White's main focus of the good of the whole over the good of the individual. Out-of-control aspects of White would present themselves more through extreme authoritarianism / militarism.
While Black has been given a solid record of producing a large number of villains, I think that it might be Blue that has the record of being the more "corrupting" influence in the MtG universe. Blue's desire for structure and control seems to often get out of hand when paired with the philosophies of other colors.
