Toshiro Umezawa Discussion
2 days ago
HezTheGod if you could please elaborate a bit and/or provide lists instead of just making the suggestions it would be greatly appreciated for us as well as the mods to understand your reasoning. I agree that Godo Helm could qualify as competitive, and mods have stated earlier that his placement is in the process of being reassessed. I also agree that Grand Warlord Radha is comparable to Ruric Thar, the Unbowed for a Stax list, but I can't say for certain where I would place either of them. Arjun, the Shifting Flame Storm seems good, but I honestly have never seen it in action to have an opinion on it. I did look over your Arjun list though, and think it looks well tuned and I somewhat understand the gameplan and win-con, but I can see how it could fit in either mid-power or high-power. From what I've seen, Chainer, Dementia Master typically runs the classic big mana Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire win condition commonly ran in mono-black decks, and I find that playstyle very similar to my Toshiro Umezawa deck coupled into the same category. Mid-tier seems appropriate, but I'm still open to discussion on your opinions on all these commander suggestions because I'm not in complete agreement with you.

You then use the two drops to build your field and swing on the opponent until they reach zero life. It plays like a black version of white weenie where the goal is to go wide before the opponent can shut you down.

Also noticed Toshiro Umezawa in Casual. He's cheap enough with a powerful enough ability to make mid-tier. Arguable but Yosei, the Morning Star might also be good enough for mid-tier with lock combos like Lifeline. Everything else in Casual looks fine though. Keep up the good work!

I'm personally more of a fan of Kess. Reminds me a lot of Toshiro Umezawa, but less conditional. I like her more because you can get recurring value off of her instead of random (albeit free) value off Jeleva. I just feel like you're more in control of things when you storm off with Kess which I like.

aznb01777 I wouldn't say my current meta is that powerful lol. Right now I've been seeing at stuff like Zo-Zu the Punisher, Gyrus, Waker of Corpses, Animar, Soul of Elements, Borborygmos Enraged, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, and Kaervek the Merciless. I personally run Toshiro Umezawa because it's the only EDH deck I have constructed on paper, but I had him stored in a Dragon's Maze fatpack box and I just so happen to have two of those same boxes and accidentally mixed them up so I put Toshi in my storage unit and now I'm left with a box full of random singles, so I've resorted to piloting friends' decks until I can either make the time to go out to my storage unit or put together a new deck. So I'd say my meta right now is pretty mixed, but we don't play competitively by any means. Sure we play to win, but there are lots of janky shenanigans all around. However, I have played competitively and I've seen many competitive high tier generals in action in the past, so I kept those experiences in mind when I ranked Tuvasa. I think your Tuvasa deck would do really well in my meta.
To answer your question, I believe this list is a tier list based on multiplayer as it's advertised that way.

I can't wait to see what you have in store for Fumiko! I just took a look at your other samurai decks and I must say I have to put together a rendition of my own for these commanders! I've been looking into building an Aikido style deck for quite some time and Opal-Eye looks like a lot of fun for that role.
I've played Toshiro Umezawa in Voltron, Reanimator, and Spellslinger archetypes, and they're all viable playstyles. Right now my Toshi deck is spellslinger with heavy removal and a reanimator subtheme and I really enjoy how it plays even though it's not nearly as powerful or competitive as it could be. I just love how versatile he is, and it's not like he is incredibly vital to have on the board to achieve your gameplan either. There are lots of ways to play him and he will always be one of my favorite commanders because he was the first commander I ever built around!

+1 for the Vagabond reference as well as a unique and interesting commander choice for a Voltron strategy. My Toshiro Umezawa deck is also thematically very inspired by Vagabond for the flavor wins. Well done!
I'd like to see what concept you have in mind for Fumiko the Lowblood. I'd be more than happy to collaborate and help out with your deck building. It looks like you're well on your way to having a samurai commander in every color, so don't give up on it just yet! If only there was a blue samurai too haha!
