Second wind thoughts because I can't stop:

You should see how many of the samurai in your next iteration are human and if it is large enough maybe work some human payoffs to help bolster your deck like Riders of Gavony, Thalia's Lieutenant and Cavalry Pegasus (there are several more). Note that you shouldn't add so many to dilute your Samurai core and if you have a good number of fox and other samurai this may not be something worth pursuing.

This is going to be a combat centric deck, so you may find adding combat related cards and some goad cards like Bloodthirsty Blade and Martial Impetus to help do damage and remove blockers for your turn

If you want to start to lift the budget cap: Flawless Maneuver and Heirloom Blade will be cool in this deck

Thanks Joe_Ken_ you're right Bloodthirsty Blade should be in there. unfortunately, do to the Corona pandemic, I can only play online for now. The great and awesome people at Xmage are still working hard to import the Commander 2020 set. So i cant play Shiny Impetus, Martial Impetus and Predatory Impetus just yet.

I will add them to the maybe board for now :)

I’ve used Bloodthirsty Blade in my Marchesa pillow for deck to keep attacks off of me and it’s turned out really well for me. There are also some enchantments from the commander 2020 decks that would probably be good to pick up for your deck.

Shiny Impetus since you control the enchantment you’ll get the treasure token when the creature attacks, Predatory Impetus will make someone have to block the creature that is getting +3/+3 , and Martial Impetus that buff their whole board that is attacking or you could even put this one on your own creature so your board gets bigger when it attacks.
