Paeldroth: Exactly my thought. Chainer's actually pretty easy to build around btw.

I've got another pairing: Toshiro Umezawa and Horobi, Death's Wail

seshiro_of_the_orochi thanks for your recommendations! I did check out your Double Tap deck (Great name! I love Zombieland), and I really want to find a place for K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth in the deck. Any suggestions where to cut? I am very light on creatures in this deck to focus on instant flashbacks and setting up come-from-behind wins yanking everyone else's creatures to my side or controlling everyone else's board buildup while I mana ramp and Exsanguinate everyone. That being said, with K'rrik's add a +1/+1 for every spell and the hella multispell potential from Toshiro Umezawa ... I'd like to fold him in. I found spots for Glaring Spotlight and Revel in Riches , but Bolas's Citadel doesn't sit right with me for some reason. I think with the available mana ramp and card draw options it shouldn't be an issue. Same with Aetherflux Reservoir . There are already a lot of built in life drain/payment cards and even with the life add, I think the CMC too high for the way outside chance of using its 50 life slam on opponents. Thank you for your thoughtful suggestions!

Toshiro Umezawa , Tamer of Night's Reach 1BBB

Legendary Planeswalker - Toshiro

+1: Create a Kanji Trap Token. It has "2, Sacrifice this token: Until end of turn, you may cast an instant card from your graveyard. If it would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead."

-2: Destroy target permanent. Its controller draws a card and loses 1 life.

-7: Destroy each other permanent that is a creature or planeswalker. Put a loyalty counter on ~ for each legendary permanent destroyed this way.

Starting Loyalty: 4

Another Planeswalker from a legendary creature. I'd prefer it not already having a planeswalker card.

Umezawa's Bladestrike BB


As an additional cost to cast ~, put the top five cards of your library into your graveyard.

Destroy target creature.

A perfect card for my Toshiro Umezawa commander deck.

Make a splashy sorcery with cmc 6 or greater.

I second seshiro_of_the_orochi's suggestion. Toshiro Umezawa is a fantastic commander.

I'm also a fan of Massacre Girl who is surprisingly easy to turn into a board wipe in the command zone. My list for her is here.

Toshiro Umezawa is a pretty nasty control/spellslinger commander. My list that's up here isn't perfectly correct, but the most important parts are there:

"Whenever you gain control of a permanent you don't own, return target instant or sorcery card from your graveyard to your hand."

This ability doesn't fit the flavor of feather, but it does allow you to return the spell that caused you to gain control, similar to how Toshiro Umezawa would allow a Terror to trigger his ability, and be the target of his ability.
