Toshiro Umezawa Discussion

seshiro_of_the_orochi on How Much Could Kamigawa Be ...

legendofa: tamiyo has an orphanage, thus I'd put her into the "improvement through progress" section.

The akki would propably take a rakdos-road in that they just want to watch the world burn. The nezumi would benefit a lot from progress in that they could participate more in society. The samurai should propably be contra as bushido seems to be based on tradition a lot. The ninja are hard. They'd lose their tradition if the were pro, but otherwise, it would be a nice flavour fit if the black-aligned tribes were on the progressive side as a callback to the hero of original kamigawa Toshiro Umezawa.

Do you want to go control again? Try Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis with enchantments, sweepers and hatebears. You'll get something new from basically every set. Toshiro Umezawa is a nice comboesque voltron.

On a different note, I've been thinking about converting my Toshiro Umezawa Spellslinger deck into a Dralnu, Lich Lord deck with Storm components and Doomsday lines. I always felt like Toshi really really wants to be a Storm commander, but isn't quite where he would like to be. My meta shift has gotten exceedingly competitive and it's hard to keep up, so converting the deck to Dimir would open up lots of cool things for me and Dralnu is just super cool, I think I like him even more than Kess tbh. I don't know though, it makes me sad that Toshi isn't showing great results anymore since everyone kind of knows what to expect after game one when I drop a win con. The other thing I'm considering is converting the deck into Reanimator, but at that point I think I would rather run Chainer, Dementia Master at the helm of the deck. I'm just really torn as to what I should do with the deck now, thoughts on this?

Aphoticate Toshiro Umezawa plays extremely similarly to that strategy for big mana wins, but it's important to consider that strategy is extremely fragile and is not very resilient to interruption. I think Chainer may be better for the role, but I can't say for certain that he deserves to be pushed up to a higher tier.

They're probably a bit of a stretch, but how about Cursed Ronin or Toshiro Umezawa as Deadpool?

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.

Lord_Europa, think of it in terms of a weenie deck. Discard to remove threats from their hand. Kill spells to remove threats from the battlefield, which can be flashbacked with Toshiro Umezawa.

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!
