Masako the Humorless Discussion
2 months ago
Hello! Nice deck. I also have an EDH deck with Mikaeus, the Lunarch. Some cards have a good synergy with his ability. Ajani Steadfast seems to work well. I would also add Recruiter of the Guard and Masako the Humorless.

I plan to build a warrior deck too, but it'll be Naya. One card I'll be adding is Masako the Humorless. Allows you to be aggressive yet still have blockers.

I would be leery of running Howling Mine. Remember, you aren't giving away a card for a card, you're giving away three. Without some sort of effect that really capitalizes on extra card draw, like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, The Locust God, or a mill strategy, it's typically a terrible idea to give your opponents extra cards. It can be good in an artifact deck with ways to tap it though. I'd replace it with Outpost Siege or one of the equipment that draws cards. Honestly, you're doing pretty well on card-draw anyway and could replace it with a land or a ramp effect. I only mentioned it to show that they were out there and applicable to Boros colors. At least with Temple Bell you can be political as well as control whether or not people draw. Kind of on-theme too.
I think your creature count is slightly low for an aggro deck, but with Iroas protecting them and a heavy Equipment them it's likely fine! You'll probably have to find out in playtesting.
I feel like you don't have enough ramp to only be running 33 lands, though your deck's average CMC is relatively low. Playtesting it will be the final judge but it may be a bit of a gamble. It depends if your group does Partial Paris mulliganing. Makes it easier to gamble with a low land count.
Taurean Mauler is a Samurai! So is Mirror Entity. Both very good in Commander but I'd understand if you want to keep the deck's creatures more "pure". Flavor matters, after all. Masako the Humorless gives pseudo-vigilance but Always Watching and Brave the Sands are kick-ass cards and already in your deck. Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker is extremely good but not budget at all.
Call to Glory is quite flavorful but not super-awesome. Tenza, Godo's Maul is a fantastic piece of equipment (Kamigawa too). Cathars' Crusade is very good for a deck like this but not a cheap cheap card. Same with True Conviction. Your budget seems to allow for a decent amount of $2 cards though so I'd consider them. Legion's Initiative is decent and can save your board from a Wrath of God. Spear of Heliod might be okay. Traditionally Samurai more commonly used spears and bows on the actual battlefield.
Konda's Banner can be an excellent card and is very flavorful but it doesn't actually work that well in this deck, in my opinion. Iroas isn't always a creature and he'll only ever give creatures +1/+1, being a God and not a Samurai. You have a decent number of Legends though, and FWIW all are human so even Godo can use it well. It's always better to have it on your commander since you can reliably play him. Half your creatures would get +2/+2 and the rest +1/+1 from one of the other Legends. Not bad, but you could do an anthem effect like Dictate of Heliod that is more reliable and harder to remove. The mana cost of the banner is pretty great though. Maybe Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon"? Not amazing, but flavorful. Glorious Anthem is nice. Always Watching is an anthem too so that's great.
You could drop one to three of your Arrest effects for other utility cards or increased land/ramp. I love effects like that and I love shutting stuff down but you have an above-average amount. Perhaps change one of them to an Oblivion Ring for slightly more versatility. The nice thing about the Arrest-like cards is they don't send commanders to the Command Zone.

Intrepid Hero, Forgotten Ancient, Masako the Humorless, Thunderfoot Baloth all seem cutable. I personally think your deck should be more low to ground. That's what i did when i played hatebears anyways!
