I'm Jonathan, and I play tribal. I love the theme of tribal and the different worlds tribal decks explore. Most tribal decks fall into the mainstays such as goblins, elves, soldiers and knights. I like to explore some of the other tribals I believe to be fun and interesting.

Most of my decks aren't that expensive outside a few modern staples. That said, they still lean more towards casual than competitive. I still play at FNM when given chance and for the most part, do reasonably well. I love playing FFA in groups the most, however. The political aspect of it and just hanging with cool people make it the most fun for me.

Enjoy the list yourselves if it pleases you, I mostly posted them here so I can tweak and get others input. I am on a quest to build more tribals in the future, so maybe throw out a tribe to consider!

I also built semi-samurai decks in black and red. They are basically color shifted weenie decks built around Legendary Samurai in those colors. The key to samurai is to go with a weenie approach.

My style is to have a little flavor in my decks, which makes them sometimes weaker overall. There are lots of samurai options in the 1-3 cmc range, which is where you want to be with a weenie deck (1-2 cmc realistically).

There are anthem effects to support this strategy and remember to have one skit for removal, as you’ll need it if games go too long. Typically, you’ll be outgunned in the late game even with bushido giving you some reach.

It’s a fun and unique tribal that most people don’t expect at FNM. I constantly make small tweaks to mine just to keep it fresh to me but the basic outline is there. I hope you have fun above all else! Interesting fact, there is a lone green samurai as well, Isao. You can go multicolored samurai if you want with Kentaro as support (or just use dual lands)!

It’s just a white weenie deck but it is able to pull off wins against more expensive decks. It’s just full of flavor and fun.
