"Generally speaking, the way of the warrior is resolute acceptance of death." - Miyamoto Musashi

Toshiro Umezawa is one of my favourite characters on mtg lore so I had to do a deck with him, plus I really like his ability so here is what I came up with.

Win-cons currently available:

Any suggestions to improve the deck would be welcome.

The deck was feeling quite weak as it was. It was too dependent on the opponents' creatures plus it was just too slow, most times I would have only Toshiro in play while trying to ramp for the bigger dudes. As such I decided to "rebuild" the deck, this time more focused on sacrificing my creatures for value and get them back. This also helped me to reduce the average CMC of the deck, hopefully making it faster. I also included some infinite combos which I was against before, but during my absence all summer my playgroup improved the decks which are now quite stronger, making my main deck feel even weaker so I had to step up my game aswell, and since I was already focusing the deck on sacrificing creatures I included those combos aswell.
