Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo Discussion
5 months ago
What's your opinion on Harm's Way ? It can possibly one-and-a-half-for-one the opponent by making them burn their own critters. Goblin Guide , Grim Lavamancer and Eidolon of the Great Revel all get btfo. Monastery Swiftspear is the only common creature that could survive it.
Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo has an effect that might be useful to the strategy: it can soak Lava Spike s and other player-only damage (unlike Spellskite ), and can't be countered by Skullcrack (unlike prevention and lifegain). And while on the subject of damage redirection, Empyrial Archangel would be nearly impossible for Burn to win through. And it can be pulled out with Angel's Herald if you can run Bant colors. This is might be too slow for modern, and might require too much of a rework.
One amusing possibility might be Hedron-Field Purists . With one counter on it, it turns all their Lightning Bolt into Shock . It also hates Grapeshot , Empty the Warrens and Walking Ballista , potentially making this more competitive against other decks.

My question in regards to this deck is why Arcades, the Strategist instead of another bant commander such as Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Arcades synergizes with defender cards. Of which you have only 1, which is Dragon Throne of Tarkir.
If you want to use Arcades, I recommend more defender cards such as: Tree of Redemption, Ageless Sentinels, Wall of Blossoms, Colossus of Akros, Golden Guardian Flip, Hornet Nest, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Thing in the Ice Flip, Sylvan Caryatid, Wall of Reverence, Amaranthine Wall, Assault Formation, Carven Caryatid, Dazzling Ramparts, Gomazoa, Guard Gomazoa, Hover Barrier, Just to name a few.
Good luck to you!

You're missing some of the best samurai, friend! You should get a set of Samurai of the Pale Curtain as well as a fourth Hand of Honor. They can get a lot of early damage in and outfight other creatures for most of the game. Konda's Hatamoto is another creature I'd strongly recommend four of - it's quite easy to have a legendary samurai in play cheaply. It's flat-out better than Inner-Chamber Guard, for instance.
I'd also try to get a copy or two of Sensei Golden-Tail in there, as he's a two-mana legendary for the Hatamoto, and also gives you something to do with your mana later on. You can keep targeting the same creature with his ability to keep giving them more instances of bushido (having bushido 1 three times is identical to having bushido 3, for instance.) Maybe run a single Kentaro, the Smiling Cat, too - not because you'll need his ability, but it's worth making sure the Hatamoto is buffed! I dunno if Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo is any good, but, um... he's cool.
Lastly, Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho seems like an obvious inclusion. The +3 power will let your mid-sized creatures compete even in the late game, and since they're all samurai, even trades in combat will become favourable for you. Try it out!

not sure how your creature base helps with infect, most of them are too small to have any impact.
also aside from using burn/reflect spells, how do you win?

I love the idea/flavor behind a samurai deck so +1 for that alone :p in terms of suggestions... a lot of that depends on how/where you play this deck... if you wanna go more competitive but maintain the theme my number 1 suggestion would be to trim the fat from the average mana cost of the deck by running a few lower CMC samurai like Devoted Retainer or Battle-Mad Ronin.... id also ditch running Mirror Gallery and simply get a wider variety of creatures... like instead of running TWO legendaries with the same name just run one of each and add in some of the one your missing like Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo.
happy brewing and good luck!
