Takeno, Samurai General Discussion

Randy_chaz on Saskia's Samurai

leviathan_cross thanks! I’ve realised it could do with maybe another boardwipe, like Fumigate, and Helm of the Host may not really be worth it so could put Sensei's Divining Top in for some card draw, but I like the idea of multiple Saskia’s spreading the damage love around, or multiple Takeno, Samurai General super buffing the samurais. So as usual it’s still a work in progress lol.

i have a really hard time believing you won any games at all against those decks, and especially not matches. almost no removal, creatures are small and don't do anything, and you run cards with a cmc of 6 or 7 that will never even be cast in modern. you explain your card choices by simply telling what it does as if you think we can't mouse over the link and read it ourselves. also, "flavor out the wazoo" doesnt win games. powerful effects win games, which is not something Takeno, Samurai General has. you say you're not brave enough to run Konda, Lord of Eiganjo... yet its still in the deck.

One more thing. If you want to keep the samurai theme and keep it legal you could do it a couple different ways:

1) Pick a different mono white legendary samurai.

You're options would be: Konda, Lord of Eiganjo, Nagao, Bound by Honor, Opal-Eye, Konda's Yojimbo, Sensei Golden-Tail, & Takeno, Samurai General

2) Pick another legendary creature that is multiple colors

Back when the original zendikar block was released, the ally creature type was introduced and had good cards in all 5 colors. Until recently though, there wasn't a 5 colored identy for an ally commander. Instead players who wanted to have an ally deck would do something along the lines of having Progenitus or another 5 color creature as the commander. Sure it wasn't an ally but it allowed players to use any color for their ally tribal deck.

Just food for thought.

Playing Mirror Entity can give you a buff, as well as turn everything into a Samurai.

Crib Swap and Angel of Flight Alabaster is a combo, giving you a removal spell each turn.

Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho can help to protect your commander and other Samurai's. Adding in Takeno, Samurai General also gives you a buff as well

You're very welcome :) I really think you should give Goldentail another chance, though. I'm 99% sure that his ability would synergize with Takeno, Samurai General :D have an awesome day!

Cool Deck. I think you should run Sensei Golden-Tail so you can boost your samurai's bushidopoints up. That way Takeno, Samurai General will make your samurai even bigger

How about graveyard manip + samurai tribal?

Samurai support:
Takeno, Samurai General
Sensei Golden-Tail
Indebted Samurai

Sands of Delirium

Artisan of Kozilek
Breath of Life
Bruna, the Fading Light
Colfenor's Urn
Emeria, The Sky Ruin
Enduring Renewal
False Defeat
...and so on

I guess you would need artifact tutors too, like Enlightened Tutor... might be too fragile. But still would be cool when it goes off.
