Inanity on Yomiji combo

Always a fan of playing the unplayable. Also, I'm intrigued at the potential of Yomiji, Who Bars the Way with the change to Planeswalkers. Maybe you could find some use out of Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit, Day of Destiny, and either or both of the Odrics

mazrimtaim I realize your comment was very long ago but just wanted to let you know that you cant play Fist of Suns in anything but a five color EDH deck because its color identity is all five colors.

OP why not play Yomiji, Who Bars the Way to do he mindslaver combo much more easily than your way of constantly discarding an eldrazi?

Some cards to maybeboard. Sammurai have always held a soft spot in my heart so I'm glad youre making them!

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way is a great way to keep your legendaries from dying. A lot of the good Sammurai are legendary, so that's nice. At 7 mana its a big turn but if you can its nice.

Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker nets you a sweet defense for non token decks. Because 3 creatures is three permanents! Again, not a Sammurai but super cool.

Cauldron Haze is a dope anti-board wipe that sees such little play. Its on collie for you and for 2 mana it saves your hide! If someone blasphemous acts, you in response cauldron haze your dudes. If youre trying to be political too, its any number of creatures, so you can hit your opponents too!

Teferi's Protection is just a dope white card.

Odric, Master Tactician for the kill B) plus you can make him go " last samurai " by adding in a Sensei Golden-Tail. Each instance of his training stacks, so you could have Odric as a samurai samurai samurai with 3 instances of bushido 1.

Looks good, and a lot of fun, too! I designed a similar deck and have some suggestions that might interest you.

Firstly, I think any EDH deck that's three or more colours ought to run City of Brass and Mana Confluence! They're basically Command Towers two and three. You definitely don't want to get colour screwed in a planeswalker-heavy deck.

Savor the Moment is great in these kinds of decks, since it's three mana to use all of your planeswalker abilities again. Speaking of which, Rings of Brighthearth lets you double planeswalker abilities for apiece, though the card is somewhat pricey. You might like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Thrummingbird and/or Inexorable Tide for the extra proliferation (and removal!)

Maybe consider making room for something like Wrath of God, Supreme Verdict or Hallowed Burial, since all of your board wipes other than Toxic Deluge are six mana or more. You can try Humility or Peacekeeper to keep creatures in check for the long-term, though the former can sabotage your own plans sometimes and the latter is very easy to kill. And if you don't mind being mean, Armageddon is pretty great if you can secure the board with a planeswalker or two!

And don't forget that as of recently, Planeswalkers all count as Legendary permanents! It doesn't make much difference, but now you can tutor them up with Captain Sisay and Thalia's Lancers, recur them with Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, and even tap them for mana with Honor-Worn Shaku. Pretty neat, no?

cncfan: yeah when they announced the change the first thing I did was grab the Captain Sisay from my bulk rares box and throw her in haha.

PhotogenicParasympathetic: I'm def gonna play Reki, the History of Kamigawa soon as I find the one I have but I dunno about the others. Yomiji, Who Bars the Way just costs too much and the others don't really seem to do enough for me personally.
