Have you ever wondered how a dog can realistically use a sword in battle? Have you found yourself lying awake at night, desperately questioning how canines can properly move in heavy metal plating? Well, dear reader, you are in luck! For the low, low price of 50 of your earth dollars, you too can have these questions answered!

With your very own Isamaru, Hound of Konda, you can join those amazing illegal, underground dogfighting rings you've heard so much about! Catch the attention of desirable women as your sword-wielding death-machine drenches himself in the bloody entrails of your opponents! Roll in the cash by engaging in family-friendly mugging and gambling, waylaying passers-by with your gore-soaked canine pal! Feeling dangerous and/or mentally compromised? Toss in an Eldrazi Conscription and bring your reality-warping tentacled monstrosity to every social outing! It's just not fun until the Elder Doge ushers in a second darkness!

Illegal Dogfighting

For those who ask the important questions

Ohhhh buddy am I excited to try this out! I have been looking for a budget white tron deck and a new pet, this does both! +11

More power to the Isamaru players! You should take a look at my Tiny Leaders and EDH decks built around this pup. I chose enchantments and instants over equipments cuz you get more bang for your buck since you have to pay colored mana (why pay 6 for Vulshok Battlegear when you can pay 3 for Angelic Blessing).

Here's some suggestions: O-Naginata, Cathedral of War, Akrasan Squire, Sejiri Steppe, Cavern of Souls, Serra's Sanctum, Daybreak Coronet, Pariah, Piston Sledge, Mother of Runes, Spirit en-Dal, Sword of the Chosen, Runed Halo, Inviolability, Flickerform, Ghostly Prison, Rebuff the Wicked, Orim's Chant, Livewire Lash, Enlightened Tutor, Stoneforge Mystic, Idyllic Tutor, Mana Tithe, Crystal Chimes, Darksteel Forge, Solitary Confinement, Second Sunrise, Crawlspace, Blind Obedience, Angelic Renewal.

There's some expensive as hell cards in that list, but they are the best ever printed for Isamaru.

That's a lot of equipment. And a lot of bang for the buck.

Dispatch, and Dispense Justice look good in this deck. They are also budget.

Awesome Description! I was laughing so hard. I like the deck idea too but let me give ya a few suggestions too. Nim Deathmantle is great to resurrect and can give your pooch fear. Steelshaper's Gift might help ya out too. Boonweaver Giant or Graceblade Artisan to aid your pooch perhaps? And I LOVE Brass Squire in my equipment deck. Blight Sickle is a way around indestructible btw! Love the ideas and hope some of these aid ya!

Mana Tithe could be useful as a very early game protective spell, which I think you need more of. EDH is not a format without removal and I feel like having your dood never actually be on the board would not let you have fun as you will not be able to do anything.

MsSysbit says... #14

Going off that idea Not of This World can protect your pooch for free if at 7+ power

Endless Horizons would work wonders in this deck.

Homeward Path would give some much appreciated protection from Isamaru theft.

Protection from dog-nappers is always important. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hero's Blade seems required in here

June 6, 2016 11:08 a.m.

Why no Darksteel Forge?

Can't help but ask, but what is Staff of Nin doing in the deck? It's a great card don't get me wrong but it doesn't seem to fit the theme at all. Might I suggest replacing it with Bladed Pinions for a flying Doggo, or Bone Saw for that cheap damage? I'd also suggest taking one of the lands out and adding Karoo. Final suggestion (for now at least) Nahiri, the Lithomancer seems like a must have for this deck, especially with all the enchantments you have that benefit creatures you control.

TTFN, Amazing deck would suggest for anyone just getting into the format.

Sram, Senior Edificer is fantastic in this type of build, all that additional card draw while fielding aura/equipment really works pretty slick

I was going to question why you don't have Puresteel Paladin in this deck, but I didn't realize it's up to $12 now. Would still be worth it when you can get one.

Also, Bastion Protector is another consideration. I'd recommend replacing the eidolon with it. It's also a good idea for all EDH decks to have a couple board wipes because things can get quickly out of hand. This deck would benefit from them because of very quick recovery with a cheap commander. Two good (and cheap) examples which wouldn't wipe your artifacts are Kirtar's Wrath and Rout.

LeonDaniels says... #27

As an extension of PacoBob's suggestion Descend upon the Sinful is a great removal that gets around indestructible, and is really cheap (around a dollar now I believe)
