Kusari-Gama Discussion

griffstick on Need help for a Budget ...

Grafted Exoskeleton because a 6/6 that gets a +1/+1 counter basically every time it attacks with an equipment that gives it +2/+2 and infect, makes a very scary CMDR. Other good stuff is Grafted Wargear, Scytheclaw, Ring of Xathrid cause regenerate, O-Naginata, Magebane Armor because you are in red and probably running red board wipes like Starstorm basically keeps him safe from all red based board wipes and what ever else like Pestilence. Another good one is Kusari-Gama. All the "swords". And that's just equipment. Clout of the Dominus, Helm of the Ghastlord, Sleeper's Robe, and Fist of the Demigod are all good. Some others are good like Skeletal Grimace, Shade's Form, Endless Scream, Phyresis, Glistening Oil, and Corrupted Conscience gonna be good in many situations. I mean I'm barely scratching the surface. There's so many ways you can voltron. But this is what I got for ya. Cheers

Have you considered adding Kusari-Gama? Definitely nasty when paired with your Grappling Hook.

Darksteel Plate wouldn't be a bad addition either.

Junk_Heap on The Loneliest Pup In Commander

  • Thanks for the compliment! This deck is a labor of love and I am glad it shows.


  • Swiftfoot Boots is preferable to Lightning Greaves because we can continue to add more equipment and auras after they are attached. With no other creatures in the deck we cant swap around Lightning Greaves to get around the disadvantages of Shroud.

  • If only Rafiq of the Many was a mono-white enchantment. He would be in the deck for sure!


  • If I were to add a creature boardwipe to the deck Divine Reckoning would be it. I use it to great advantage in my Kemba, Kha Regent deck. Divine Reckoning could be a positive addition to this deck in the right meta.

  • Angelic Benediction can be a good addition, but the mana cost seems a bit too high for what it does. Likewise with Cathedral of War the free buff from a land is nice but I cant abide the fact that it enters play tapped.


  • Sensei's Divining Top is not legal in the 1v1 MTGO Commander format. It used to be in the deck before I changed it to match the new MTGO format since most players of 1v1 Commander on MTGO migrated. Being a mono-white deck I would run Sensei's Divining Top if I could!


  • I am a big fan of the Kaldra equipment set in a more casual environment but I think its too expensive to find a home in this deck. Plus, making a token would make Isamaru less lonely and we cant have that!


  • Thanks for the positive feedback! A budget build of this deck in the 1v1 MTGO Commander format would be difficult; I just dont think it could stand up because we lose our fast mana. But, if you wanted to try, you could substitute mana rocks with higher CMC. It will slow you down overall but could add the mana you need for an explosive winning turn.


  • Thanks for the suggestions on equipment that grants Vigilance. The 0 CMC even helps some of our cards that care about the amount of artifacts and equipment we have on the battlefield!


  • Kusari-Gama is a great suggestion for metas that are token heavy. Definitely a card to watch!


  • When Sram, Senior Edificer first came out I swapped him in for Isamaru, Hound of Konda to see how the deck would operate. A commander with a cantrip stapled to it is great, to say the least. If I was not dedicated to the pup I would strongly consider running Sram, Senior Edificer.

  • Extraplanar Lens with snow basics has been considered for a long time. I just like the buff from Gauntlet of Power too much. In addition, I run the Regecca Guay APAC plains with the deck and I cant disrupt that level of flavor.


  • Thanks for the compliment and congrats on making the deck IRL! Regarding Field of Ruin I just think Ghost Quarter is stronger. Field of Ruin definitely has its advantages but the activation cost is too high in my opinion. If you run it let me know how it operates and I may change it out!

this isn't standard you will probably want to change the format. Kusari-Gama is a great way to remove a whole team since it hits the whole board, super strong with death touch. things like Lure will be good to make them have to block. Heroic Intervention would be good for you too, since you can survive some board wipes. one last thing, it looks like you enjoy making fun decks, have you considered using Harmless Offering and Donate to give your opponents Abyssal Persecutor? if you can find a way to do it, and then put a Robe of Mirrors on it you essentially are invincible.

Hey zamiero,

Thank you again for the suggestions!

The Kusari-Gama is more for the 'if you block' portion than pushing damage through with the mana sink.

Springleaf Drum or Glare of Subdual are both great suggestions, just unsure what to cut for them.

Oketra's Monument was actually an all-star last game. Created several chumps (effectively negating counter swings with Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist tapped) and made everything cheaper. Also bolstered the ability to 'go wider' than this deck can typically do, plus it is a Cat monument lol.

Relic Crush is junk, I agree. I like all your suggestions over that for sure. I'll swap that out for sure.

Definitely like Buried Ruin over the Opal Palace as well.

I'm not sure the deck can support Kusari-Gama... I remember waiting a long time to get lands 5, 6, 7, and 8 when I last played the deck. Even then you're spending your entire turn just to attack for a few extra points of damage?

If you don't want Glare of Subdual but still want to be able to tap your general without attacking, try Springleaf Drum.

I personally think Oketra's Monument and Relic Crush seem a little strange for the deck... perhaps I'm not valuing them enough since I haven't played them... maybe cut one of them?

Also I think Sylvan Reclamation, Return to Dust, Aura of Silence, Forsake the Worldly, Terashi's Grasp, Tribute to the Wild, and Return to the Earth are are better choices than Relic Crush in this deck.

I forgot to suggest earlier that Buried Ruin may help bring back artifacts. Maybe cut Opal Palace if you find the +1/+1 counter doesn't help?

To clear up my thoughts, here's what I'm thinking:

Whispersilk Cloak > Kusari-Gama : Lose the unblockability, but add a 'destroy your entire board' clause with added mana sink to power up Mirri, plus shroud is annoying to get around.

Soul's Majesty > Rishkar's Expertise : the additional mana allows for a free play AFTER drawing all the cards... seems pretty good.

Mirri, Cat Warrior > Pride Sovereign : Making more cats over the flavor fail

That just leaves Glare of Subdual... not sure what to cut for it
